My Logo Competition (with reward)

Hey,

I am new here and heard you guys are the best with this stuff. So here goes:

I have a YouTube channel over at http://youtube.com/thedevirkahan with close to 150 dedicated subscribers. I am in desperate need of a new logo. The one I have now I threw together a year or so ago and no doubt sucks. What I want from one of you is a new, awesome, cool, logo/avatar/icon (keep that in mind when you make it though - it can't be too complex, it must work as an avatar - you know what I mean....). I would much like it to have something to do with a cartooned, or graphically created, version of my face too.

Of course though, I would not expect you to do this for no reward, so here is the deal. Whoever makes this for me (everyone gets number one, my favorite logo gets 1 and 2), will get two things: http://www.flickr.com/photos/devirkahan/4183715796/#

1. A coupon to ThinkGeek.com (http://thinkgeek.com) - if you have not heard of them, then go there - now. They have the BEST tech gadgets and gizmos. They have a ton of stuff for photography too!

2. Publicity. If you have a website, a blog, photo-stream, or any link you want me to promote, I will do that on my channel. Like I said, I have about 150 really dedicated subscribers and I can GUARANTEE than you will see a lot more traffic after I thank you and link to you on my channel.

So, what do you say? It needs to be high-res (I'll scale it down myself for avatars, and icons), and I am really looking forward to this. Let the fun begin :relaxed:

Welcome to the forums... I commented on you video a week ago ;D ('I WILL RESPOND!')

I will gladly make you one. (Check my signature for a dA page)

You say you want it to be hi-res... Does this mean it has to be vector?? Assuming you know what vector is (it can be zoomed in and not pixelate/blur but it has a bit limited colours)

As soon as i come from my IT class i will make one.

Finally, someone who writes detailed descriptions :')

I may be able to help you here, I would have examples of my work on my website but it's a bit 'under construction' at the moment. I like to think I'm quite good though  ::relaxed:

First go, I wanted to try a bit of a retro graphics theme. As you a a tech enthusiast I thought it could work well. Thoughts?

ps. If you don't like the green that can be easily changed, I have a bit of a green obsession :P

I like the original idea, but not a huge fan of the retro design, personally. I think it makes it look a little shabby (and my hair is a bit odd too :relaxed:)

Take a look at http://rhettandlink.com in the upper right corner for a concept. Or even something along the lines of Chris Pirillos logo/Lockergnomes logo. Some sort of trace/cartoon/graphical build of my face is really what I'm looking for.

That's basically what you did, and I like the originality of what you did, but is not really what I'm looking for. I'm not looking for a copy though - the above is just a way for you to visualize what I am basically looking for.

Keep it up though! Really think you can win! (Oh, lol, I like darker colors, like blue, black and so on....)

I did an exact replica of you in a blue gradient circle like Chris Pirillo's but it loocked odd. I will upload the logo i have talked to you about, two days ago. I've been lazy. ;D 

BTW. I love the concept Tommy. As always... great!

Explanation: this stands for dek [(De)vir(K)ahan] or just DK. ;D

I'm not too happy with the result but here you go...

I've been thanking about adding a reflection but that could only be used on your site since a YouTube DP is too small.

Here is a bit softer version of what i have been working on. I think i made you a bit fatter than you really are. ;D




BTW. when will the competition end (what time and in what time zone) because i feel i should edit this a bit more and right now it's too late for me (it's midnight here)

EDIT:

I asked my dad to help me a bit with vector since that's not really my field. ;D

With some playing around this is what i got:



I can make it with only 2 colors like the Pirillos tomorrow. Now i really have to go to sleep. My eyes are falling out.
