We could still use a little logo to go along with the name of the site, so post your entries here.  Post each entry in a different post, and users can vote up their favourites.

Keep in mind that the best logos are historically simple and work in greyscale.

I'll be studying for most of tomorrow and making a cheatsheet for a midterm that I have on Tuesday, but after that's out of the way I'll try to whip something up. Right now I'm thinking of a small newspaper icon.

I think he's going for a logo/icon like the IGN arrow-compass thing

The Gamespot G, etc. Just something to go beside the name

Ok scrap that idea of studying all day, I decided to procrastinate and jot some quick ideas for logos:



1. Nerdy smiley
2. Enigmatic symbol
3. Jumble of letters
4. Actual news-style logo. I think this looks most professional even in rough-form and is probably my favourite.

Other potentially good ideas include just blatently ripping off the logos of Fox/ABC/CNN/CNBC

All the fingers at your newstips?

All the tips at your fingernews?

"All the gaming news, now with 300% more genitalia references ©"

Or just a big seal of approval that says "Now with cock!"

For a direct jab at Gamespot that can be interpreted either literally or otherwise,  "We have class and style"

Too lazy to match the font of the current header but....

*shrug*

I can't decide what sounds better, "class and style" or "style and class".

I'll stop entirely revamping the site now Nyaa

Hat on a microphone FTL.

The newspaper icon looks okay but it's a bit flat compared with the font, need to 3d-ize/shadow it to some extent to make it fit in is what's missing I think. It may be as simple as putting a shadow behind it on the left.

I think the slogan should be:

The VG Press: Reporting fake stories each day, BTW, you suck
