The Solar Design was the second design theme of the T-Games logos to be adopted by T-Games (after Lunar Design), created by Dillon M. during his tenure at T-Games. The design theme rolled out on August 21, 2013. An update of the main logo, dubbed 'Phase II', rolled out on October 26, 2015.

History

On August 8 2013, T-Games announced via a twitter post that it was in the process of designing a new logo[1] as founder Billy Anderson wanted a refresh for the team.

T-Games member at the time Dillon M. used Microsoft PowerPoint to design the basic T shape and the outlined circle before submitting it to Anderson. He also designed alternate palettes to be used in different areas of T-Games, such as the T-Games Wiki, T-Pod Podcast, T-Games Sapphire and T-Tokens.

Anderson liked the logos and decided to adopt them immediately, with Dillon M. announcing the update via a blog post on the T-Games Wiki[2].

After Dillon M. left T-Games in November 2013, the T-Games Archives were created and newer logos for the team were forged copies of the original. After T-Games and Dillon reconciled, Dillon sent in corrected versions of the logos and gave the source files to Anderson, therefore allowing newer logos to be authentic.

Inspiration

The designs were based off the simplistic corporate movement that much of the tech companies had been moving towards. The subtitle (using the light weighted Segoe UI typeface, unknowingly proprietary itself) was based off the original logo's "-Games" portion commonly seen on the T-Games Wiki at the time.

On October 26, 2015 the main T-Games logo was slightly updated and dubbed 'Solar Phase II'.

The logo featured a white background and a thicker border, which was updated to feature the same shade of blue as the central 'T' as the original Solar design.

The Solar Phase II update did not affect the alternate palettes within the original Solar design (such as the T-Games Wiki and T-Pod) and was never introduced to T-Games' LittleBigPlanet creations.

The logo was created after Dillon M. reconciled with T-Games after his departure in 2013, and gave Billy Anderson the original source files and templates for the logos.
