Help Us Select Armchair Arcade's New Logo

[NOTE: This will be updated as new entries are submitted!]
Number 8Number 8Do you have ideas for Armchair Arcade's new logo? Do you know someone who would like to design a logo for us to look at? What follows are some very rough ideas of our own. It would be great if we could all work together to see what we like and dislike about various concepts and ideas. As we get closer to issue 8 and our first print issue, it's important we finalize a really clever logo design. The only requirement is that like the current placeholder logo, it has "Armchair" on top and "Arcade" on the bottom, and we're allowed to use it for any purpose without restriction. Bonus points for "Videogames and Computers" under the logo. Of course it needs to be a high resolution original file, preferably vector, or something we could recreate ourselves if it's not. Bonus points from me if it can somehow relay that we're about both Videogames AND Computers, and bonus, bonus points tying together classic, modern and future. If videogame-like characters could somehow interact with the Logo, even better, though they'd have to be original for us to use them. While we can't give anything away at this time, we'll give full credit for full usage rights and maybe something like a signed copy of our first print issue. Thanks!

So, let's hear comments about these logos, your own ideas, or link to your own submissions. We'll start to pare them down and continue this discussion with a new round and additional choices, sort of like a logo "survivor". Thanks for the help and be sure to participate!

As long as you guys are playing around...

Can we see some designs involving an armchair and an arcade theme somehow? Might be neat if anyone has any ideas for branding the site...

Designs involving an armchair and arcade theme? I remember when Seb was doing the original designs for Antic Aardvark him having the aardvark sitting on an armchair playing games. It would take a good artist to draw a good person or character on an armchair playing a computer and videogame. Still, it would sort of tie in the whole name thing. I never liked it by the way. I was actually dissapointed when I found out that there was a place with that name in Buck's neck of the woods, which is probably subconsciously where he got it from. I don't think they're around anymore, so the name is all ours. I have yet to do anything with www.videogamesandcomputers.com so that's still ours too, which I think is neat.

Deadlines

I hate to rain on anyone's fun, but this is serious and we do have a finite amount of server space, so let's focus, please... I think the first deadline for entries will be Monday night, when we'll start to brutally eliminate the numbered entries. If you miss the deadline, you can try for the second deadline to pare things down even further, but we won't run this thing much longer...
