I’d like to share some more information about The Deciders, specifically how I came up with The Deciders symbol. Every famous superhero has a distinguishable symbol. Just take a look at these examples and I’ll bet you can tell me who each one belongs to.(or at least 98 % of them)
Creating a symbol can be tricky. There needs to be a reason why the symbol is and looks the way it does. I can’t stress the KISS principle enough, “Keep it simple, Stupid!”
With that in mind, I had to create a symbol which represented everything a Decider was. This symbol was going to be integrated into the suit’s design, giving it a distinct look. It would also be a part of the title logo. So I began my extensive research and then, bingo! I came across the Chinese symbol Fu
Fu is the name of a sign in Chinese symbolism for authority, divine power and the ability to judge what is right and wrong. Thus it is a symbol for justice.
Here is it below:
By flipping the sides the opposite way I got:
There are many reasons why I chose this symbol to represent The Deciders.
- It looks like the Roman Numeral One; signifying rank.
- It looks like a capital letter I; perfect for the logo.
- Above all it is still the symbol Fu; symbolizing justice.
And in case you’re wondering, this symbol is integrated throughout the suit…in both subtle and obvious places.
