Now we have the idea agreed, and the client has expressed mad enthusiasm for the direction, I can proceed with the redrawing of the rather complex network/node structure.
Watch this one evolve. Looks fugly right now, but hoping it will look awesome when completed.
What you see here is my progress on redrawing the logomark only. The Rebase wording is there provided as just as a label. See previous shot for proposed logo layout.
This bunch of nodes will ultimately form 2 distinct parts. The Lime Green network represent Rebase and as such will be a simple and well defined pattern that will overlay the daunting and complex structure underneath. It will no doubt be clearer than it is now, with the black lines probably being heavily faded.
The concept is that Rebase is a means to create a simple structure, the backbone/DNA, in the complex world of data.
Complicated isn't the same as complexity. So although it it may look complicated, Rebase provides 'order' to the underlying complexity of data.

Interesting concept sir :)
Looks like the node.js logo: http://nodejs.org/images/logos/nodejs-1280x1024.png
So using nodes and lines is not unique design concept in itself, which NodeJS can't claim to be either—do a Google search for node logo etc and you'll see—but it is a graphic representation of the foundation/blueprint which one can't really avoid.
Would be like saying one garden company has a leaf as their logo, so no one else can use a leaf.
But yes, other than those points above, looks just like NodeJS.
Seriously, dropping a one line sentance saying one logo looks like another without any additional feedback, reasoning, thoughts is just bloody annoying to have to read.
Also, that isnt part of the nodejs logo, thats a wallpaper available on the nodejs site. The logo itself does not use that graphic.
Anyway, looks good... it is tough to get a feel for what it will actually look like with the old graphic in the background, but my first thought was that the old version with the finer lines had a much more natural feel to it.
@Adam Coulombe Oh yes, absolutely.
That original shot is what we are aiming for in terms of actual look and feel, but it needs to be redrawn as that was a computer generated model, and we need to overlay a simple path over the top.
At the moment the original looks too complicated, and Rebase is anything but complicated. So we need to, somehow, show complexity along with simplicity. :0)
But overall, imagine the original shot with a highlighted path over the top.
I really love the concept and the modern feel to it. Nice way to bring simplicity and complexity together. An ambitious approach, I like that! :)
Looking forward to seeing this finished Graham... I love the concept!
