The test version of the Brawl Stars online game was released in 2017, and the global launch took place in 2018. This is a MOBA, that is, an action-packed strategy game with RPG elements. The gameplay is based on a competition between two teams, where each player controls their hero with special abilities. The key goal is to protect the main building and defeat the enemy, for which you need to get experience points and improve characteristics.
Meaning and History
In a short period, the game has changed three logos. The experiments with identity are now over: Brawl Stars continues to use the classic badge that appeared in 2018. It contains several elements, including stylized lettering and a star with wings.
2017 – 2018
From the very first emblem of Brawl Stars, it becomes clear that this is a colorful game with cartoon graphics. The central image is a golden six-pointed star that occurs in the fictional universe. For example, she is depicted on the icons of the star forces.
The star contains several color segments of different shades and is outlined with a black stripe along the outline. Right in front of it is the game’s name: above it is the blue word “BRAWL,” and below it is the red “STARS” shot in three places from a pistol.
A year after launch, the beta version changed its logo. In the new interpretation, the star is much smaller under the white and red inscription “BRAWL STARS.” In the center of the six-pointed figure is a skull – the same as on the game coins. There are no more marks from the shots, but the shooting is hinted at by two pistols that look out from behind the star.
This time, the designers paid attention to the background. They decorated the background with an ornament of blue skulls and complemented it with blue multidirectional stripes of several shades.
2018 – present
The global launch of Brawl Stars was another reason for the logo update. The developers removed the colorful background and left a space. This made it possible to emphasize the name of the game and the golden star with the skull. After the redesign, the badge looks more friendly because the pistols have been replaced with two white angel wings.
The main element of the logo is one of the in-game currencies – a coin with the image of a skull. It is used to purchase gold and silver “suits” or make various store purchases. For example, goods can be gadgets and power points.
Another important part of the emblem is the star. This is the personification of the so-called “star forces” from the game. There are 88 of them – each fighter has two. They open up new abilities that help in the conduct of combat. An asterisk indicates the presence of such an item in character with wings on the sides.
Font and Colors of the Emblem
The logo for the final version of Brawl Stars was developed from the previous one. It inherited the Nougat font with unusual, bold letters in a retro style. The typeface belongs to the serif class but has jagged, angular, and very short serifs. Symbols also seem to be “bouncing.” The designers emphasized this effect by breaking the symmetry of the stitching.
Both the graphics and the lettering are very colorful because they should be inviting to play. The word “BRAWL” is white, “STARS” is red, and the star and the coin are painted in several shades of gold. They are surrounded by wide black shadows and outlines that make the logo visible against a light background.
