    I was making a concept logo for something tria-related and I needed a nice clean version of the logo without the "MapleStory 2 Community" text. I couldn't find one so I basically set out to make an exact copy of the current Tria logo. After I finished it, I went into one of my "now what if I make one tweak" phase. These usually last several hours and one tweak ends up being like 200. I really liked the way it came out and didn't want to just throw it away so I thought I'd upload it and share it here.

    And one with 'MapleStory 2 Community' for good measure.

    I have modified the site to allow multiple different logos depending on which part of the forum you are on. This means that /stream/ could have its own logo, a warrior forum could have a sword sticking through it, etc.

    You can see this by going to the wiki.

    Thanks everyone! Some things to note if you plan to use it anywhere:

    - It works best on light backgrounds. If you want to use it on a dark background, I recommend adding a soft, white outer glow. It helps it pop.
    - The large red border works well in almost any other color. I'm quite fond of a sky-blue as an alternative.

    I can post the PSD if anyone wants it.

    That was one of the reasons I actually started my "tweaking". I noticed that the Tria logo was based off the MapleStory 2 logo when the game was first announced, but then they changed it later. The "leaf" graphic behind the .TV part is heavily based off the one in the actual MS2 logo. Since that one is only half of a leaf, I had to redraw the entire thing using the pen tool and use my best judgement. Took about six tries to get it to the point where I was happy with it.

    For some reason the period bothers me a tiny bit, but its a good logo nevertheless, fits the theme well.

    I had actually finished it without adding the period, but I decided to add it in as an afterthought. Here's what it looks like without it:

    Hah to be honest, now that I see both of them, the one with the period looks better. The periodless one looks like its missing something.
