I've got a rough draft of what I want the logo to look like, but I need it prettied-up. So, here's this contest. Whoever can make the prettiest design will have their design as the official Aegis Games logo. This contest will end Oct 1.

I had some time to spare this morning, so I thought I would test out a few simple designs.

I thought you had to give a prize to the winner, but if the only prize is just being the winner, I might have to have my own contest one of these days. :D

How about the winner also gets a little cash, say $10 or $15?

Though I don't think I have the Talent (Art skills) needed to enter this contest, here are a few "ae"-related logos for inspiration. ;)

Since "aegis" refers to a shield in mythology, I figure the "AE" logo should probably involve a shield, or shields, in some manner-- such as putting the "ae" on a shield, or having the round parts of the "a" and the "e" be shields.

Oh, I guess it was supposed to be "aG," with the "G" looking like the "a" reversed! :) Anyway, here is my entry...

Well in that case, here are a few shield-like "ag" logos.

No, it's an ae, if you look at an 'e' upside down, it kinda looks like an a (especially in Times New Roman, or Verdana.) That's what I was trying to capture, kinda like the loop-de-loop logo thingee on an Apple keyboard button.

Yes, like that. I figure something similar could be done with an a and an e, which (at least I think) looks like an upside down a in some fonts, so that's what I was trying to do with the pic in post #1. I kinda like that logo, but I hastily (and crappily) drew it with MS Paint.

Here's one I modified from the "animal evaluation" logo in post #5:
AE.jpg


and one that's a sort of fusion of the one above and your original sketch:
AElogo3.jpg


and one from the "Athletic Elite" (or is it "Elite Athletic"?) logo:
Aegis.jpg


and one that's more heavily based on the Apple "Command Key" symbol:

How about going with the original Aegis game company's logo? I think they are dead now.

Here's my second entry. The top part is a round shield ("aegis" more or less refers to a shield) with a stylized "ae" in it. Then below the shield is a repeat of the "ae" but with a reflection of it as well, so that it says "aegis" (the "e" is an upside down "a," the "g" is a reflected "e," the "i" is part of the reflected "a," and the "s" is the rest of the reflected "a"). I think it looks like it's written in runes or something.

The logo needs to be dripping buckets of blood. ;)

I know you made GoSub! but did you also make the original game that Alien Greed is a hack of?

The original was Ants, one of my first video game making attempts, but modified greatly to what it is now.

@MRB: Logos #1 and 3 look similar to the American TV network CBS's logo. Make it a perfect circle with the black width the same all around and that would be great. I, too, like the eclipse one, but haven't made a final decision yet as there's still a week to go for submissions.

CBS's logo:
