    Hey,

    I've been trying to develop a logo for my new business. I provide in-home technnical support for PCs and home networks. I'll also be reselling Media Center PCs. Anyway, here's what I came up with...

    http://www.richardweaver.com/ht.jpg

    It's ok, but it's not .... cool. I like the gears uniting the house and the business name, but I'd like it to be more modern tech... looking. Funkier. Kinda like the Gorillaz stuff. I'm poor at the moment, but I'll give 50 bucks to the best logo I receive in the next week. There might be a few "starving graphic artists" out there who could use 50 bucks. Consider it a contest. I'll Paypal the winner 50 bucks on Friday of next week. I'll post the winner and runner's up here.

    Thanks,

    -Wrath

    A couple of questions..

    1. Is the logo for a website, or will you be putting it on business cards, etc?

    2. Would you prefer we stick to the white and blue color theme of your first design, or does it not matter at all?

    I hate to do this, but you should try your luck on the www.spymac.com forums. There are lots of professionals who do this for a living and might actually take you up on that $50. there are like 5 posts asking for logos, so you might want to look over those first

    EDIT
    heres a link to a request, looks pretty good, i just saw ~BK's, Nice job

    Thanks. It doesn't matter. I'm not doing this for money. I might not even take money from him if he likes the logo.

    I'm definitely one of those "starving graphic artists" lol. Anyway here are two options I made. I've still got a few more ideas that I may try out, but I thought I'd go ahead and post these.

    Design 1

    Design 2
