This contest is for a logo for a browser-based casual strategy game called Edge Of War (http://www.edgeofwar.com), currently in development.
I'm looking for a simple idea that conveys a strong brand.
* Futuristic / Technology
* War / Violence / Bloody
* Strength / Conquer / Strategy
The logo will be used primarily on a website, but might be used on other items eventually, like a (black or dark colored) t-shirt or coffee mug.
I don't have a strong preference for a "typeface only logo" or for some image along with the text. I'm open to either idea.
I would prefer a thick stroke on any font (although I'm open to ideas), some graphic elements (something futuristic? something broken with wires and circuits hanging out? something bloody?)
The whole thing must look GREAT on a dark or black background. I'm thinking blood red and white, with some accent color.
Some of the artwork to appear on the site (for inspiration):
(I don't want these incorporated into the logo, I'm just supplying a reference).
I give prompt, courteous feedback ... I have a history of successful contests.
I'll need source ... PSD or AI only, please.
Best wishes to all, and please feel free to ask and followup questions you may have.
