This is a fun project I'm working on for myself, and I want a talented graphic/identity designer to help me design the logo and its identity.
The site is a casual flash gaming site with popular flash games. I think it has a great domain name, and it just needs a beautiful logo to go with it.
Mostly bored-at-work people (you know who you are) and teenagers and college-bound students. I'm expecting the demographics to skew mostly males, but there are plenty of interesting games geared for the girl gamers.
The logo should be clean, minimalistic, and fun! I like designs that are strong on typography - that extends the standard characters more then just picking a good font.
I also like icons, characters or mascots that may represent the site. I think a fun character for the word DASH (animal? widget? thundersign?) would be interesting. The only thing is, please don't use very obvious items such as a joystick, arcade-buttons, arcade-box, tv-tube, etc... let's get creative!
The colors should match this template:
I also like retro, 8-bit or isometric pixel designs - harkens back to the good old days.
