I own http://www.teamidemise.com . We're one of the oldest World of Warcraft Guide selling businesses on the net. We've sold tens of thousands of training guides and programs to help players become better at the game. We're looking to brand our business a bit and give us a new strong image.
Our main target audience is from 18-35 years old. So these aren't children. They have credit cards and purchase our products. They like technological type stuff. They are pretty hardcore gamers and play around 40 hours a week.
Our biggest product is a Leveling Addon and we try to market it as the most technologically advanced addon out there.
Therefore, it would be nice to have a clean, sophisticated, and more mature type logo.
I like the look of http://www.enjin.com . It's really slick and simple but at the same time it has some power to it. This doesn't mean I want a copy of that logo though.
I would prefer the logo to match the site
Design the logo as just "iDemise" rather than "Team iDemise"
Now, you guys are free to create the logo however you FEEL works best, but just be sure to research my business and the WoW market before you go wild.
In the contests I've held in the past for other WoW sites of mine, people see that I run a "video game" business and so they create things that are very cliche... such as those old nintendo controllers, or pixelated graphics, Mario and Luigi, and stuff like that.
That has nothing to do with my business. It has nothing to do with World of Warcraft. Games have not been like that for 10 years. And no business who takes themselves seriously would ever want a logo like that.
Sorry for sounding harsh, but I've done a lot of contests on many different sites and if I see another one of those crappy logo's I'm going to flip out. lol
Alrighty, I think that's all I have to say. I hope to get some good entries this time around! Good luck and have fun!
