It's from Famitsu. I doubt it's fabricated. I couldn't find any other thread about the logos, so just merge/lock/whatever into an appropriate thread.
He was warrior and mystic, ogre and saint, the fox and the innocent, chivalrous, ruthless, less than a god, more than a man. There is no measuring Muad'Dib's motives by ordinary standards. In the moment of his triumph, he saw the death prepared for him, yet he accepted the treachery. Can you say he did this out of a sense of justice? Whose justice, then? Remember, we speak now of the Muad'Dib who ordered battle drums made from his enemies' skins, the Muad'Dib who denied the conventions of his ducal past with a wave of the hand, saying merely: "I am the Kwisatz Haderach. That is reason enough."

Those bites taken out of the apple are amazingly angular.

NERV's logo is ugly and too barroque. Has the apple been bitten or peeled?

Seele's logo is like they are screaming "Hey! We are bad! Really! Can't you see!"

PS: In Evangelion's official site, the apple behing NERV's leaf only appears from time to time, shining...

No one in their right mind would approve a logo so unnecessarily complicated.

Damn you, nonsensical fiction.

That's just bad graphic communication. Stop trying to fix what ain't broken.

Also, threadtitle is terribly misleading.

If you believe that this is true then I must ask;
to what end do you proceed?

Yeah. I prefer the old designs better, as well.

I wonder, is there anyone who can read German here? What does SEELE's new logo translate into?

The SEELE logo would be better if the snake didn't look so "scary."

In all honesty, I think the new NERV logo is an improvement over the old one. However, the color photo (in some other thread) did it more justice.

Guess I'm in the minority. I like them both.

I did like the original NERV logo more but the new one isn't bad at all and I'm glad some concrete images and facts are coming out now.

So IMO, two thumbs up for both.

I'm wondering what the symbolism is behind them. The original NERV symbol was showing that mankind abandoned original sin (the fig leafs that covered Adam and Eve) and the Seele symbol was the seven eyes of God, which, I guess, meant that they see all.

I guess the new symbols mean the same thing?

The new Seele logo looks kind of boring, bland, non-threatening(maybe that's what they want you to think :evil: ), I prefer the original for now. The new NERV looks weird with its random angles; but, it's growing on me though.

I don't like the SEELE one at all. It looks like something some emo-kid would draw in high school. And the new Nerv one isn't much better. Too complicated.

I think that SEELE's logo is a bit too elaborate. If it were any more complicated it'd be a coat of arms. Plus, the writing's in German. SEELE is alienating a huge percentage of its customer base. But who ever said that a global conspiracy of rapture-minded, cyborgian scientists had to be appealing? If it's only the members of SEELE seeing it, it doesn't necessarily have to be cool enough to put on a trucker hat.

On the other hand, it might be a good move to go with something little more unembellished. I'm thinking some kind of "swooshing" image, if that hasn't been taken.

Just in case you are wondering what that German says, this may be (but probably isn't) the English translation...
