    We should leave this design in the past.

    Those multiple Switch icons are a bit annoying. It would look way better without em. Or at least place one of them anywhere along the words but not as a watermark/blurred thing but in the same white as the words.
    Anyway: Best mockup yet, I like it! :)

    Not near my computer now, but I’ll let you know.

    Thanks for your input. @nmkd asked for a 3DS-like graphic, so I delivered my take on a Switch version of it. The Switch icons seemed like a perfect replacement for the solid shapes in the 3DS version.

    I dig the red and white one. It matches the Nintendo Switch logo. Great job.

    TiMeBoMb4u2, can the switch consoles in the background and the wave be animated something like this?

    I’m sure it can be done, but no one has shown a PoC, though.

    Added the following "eShop-ish" graphics to OP.
    Due to popularity, I stayed with the "Switch Red" theme.

    I like these! The eShop-ish effects add an effect to them that looks pleasing to me.

    I may need to adjust the color contrast between the background and foreground, though.
    The reds you have been seeing me use are, what I believe to be, the official RGB colors of the Switch logo (darker) and the Neon Red Joy-Con (lighter).

    The second one (with the wave) is the best one in this thread until now! ;)

    I would like to see a different style (maybe like stripes intersecting vertically like the switch logo) other than the bubble animation and "launcher" being changed as well but then again I am just on the receiving end of this so I'll be gracious over any design given.

    Vertical stripes like the Switch logo?
    Do you have an example?

    Not in picture but what I was imagining was a theme of maybe red stripes on a white background (bottom and top, or slanted) crossing in between each other then fading in the homebrew logo in a black font in center. Is it an ass idea?

    IMHO I prefer the classic blue like from the Wii, Wii U, 3DS.
    The Wii, Wii U have bubbles, The 3DS has a waving line, the Switch could have the switch logo in place of the bubbles. ( like the red version )
