The focus of the resolve was to suggest a planetary likeness based on the bowl-curve of the last 3 in 343. The idea was to develop a sense of "space" without being too literal. Since the logo would be viewed repetitively with every start or restart of Halo 4, the horizon-line lighting was incorporated to bookend the animation as well as continue the planetary suggestion. This is to connect the first and last 3 that you see within the brief five second resolve. The materials were influenced by aspects of the environmental art direction for the forerunners, the architect race in the Halo universe. An organically-digital quality was achieved by creating vein-like digital patterns beneath the geometry's surface.
