    I need to make a logo for the following: Rock Solid Support

    If you make a symbolic logo, it has to be as simple as possible. It's a tech support crew offering home services. (like the Geek Squad), so nothing too big (has to fit on small stickers and business cards)

    A logo with just the acronym (RSS) would be perfect.

    If anyone has any ideas, I'm brainstorming too... This is non-lucrative, I'm doing this for fun.

    I've tried several fonts from www.fontfreak.com but I can't seem to find one that really looks like rock and I can't draw that well...

    I was thinking of something like RSS in big 3D block letters, with a stone texture or something like that. Thing is that it must not look too "oldish" since it's for a tech support crew, and it can't be too high-tech looking either because it goes against the name. Not easy...

    Anyway, if anyone wants to try somethnig quick, I'd appreciate. Thanks!

    you could just have a rock pattern behind with the words RSS embezzled into the rock surface

    perhaps

    R S S
    Rock Solid Support

    RSS is not an acronym.

    Thanks man. Like I said, something that can fit on a sticker (the kind you put on a PC case)...

    Let's just make one large square one, and I can resize it.

    The carved stone idea is interesting, I'll play with that too!

    Lancer that kicks ass. Retro. We will use it. :)

    Tweak, I say we go with yours for the cards. Lee's might work for the stickers.

    I think we wanna use your retro on a website (when and if) - and X's rock design for the cards.

    That retro one is my desktop now. Looks a bit odd stretched, but what the hell. ;)
