The Dota Carbon Series is a branch of the Carbon Series tournament franchise. The logo designed for this tournament focuses on the Dota logo in the center. We wanted the logo to achieve an elegant and simple feel without sacrificing competitive aspects. The shield is a defining factor and sets itself apart from the other series, containing a more complicated shield shape and an almost drawn in, organic stroke. The red and black give the logo good contrast while the white brightens and highlights the shield shapes, the carbon logo, and the text, bringing everything together.
