The logo should have the phrase Beyond the Cards (or BEYOND THE CARDS), and then also .com somewhere smaller (in lower case). It should have some type of graphic that helps portray the website name. No stock or clip art images though. The primary type of poker played is Texas Hold'em, in case you need to know how many cards are dealt.
Since my audience is primarily looking to learn basics about online poker, and online poker has a tendency to attract a younger adult crowd, I am looking for an exciting logo that draws people in. However, I also want it to seem like I provide good information, so it shouldn't be too crazy.
Font: I am not set on the font. I was thinking maybe something bolder, or maybe in all caps if its not too overwhelming, but also thought maybe some type of script font. It could even be a combination of those.
Color: The website will primarily be combination of red/black/white, so the logo should have same scheme.
I would like to have formats for web and print.
