Hello all,

Thanks for the submissions so far. I'm not really interested in what;s been posted so far. I have been asked for a couple examples of what I like, please check them out:

http://www.classiccaraudio.com/
http://www.playntrade.com/storefinder

Also, I should not that I sell product from the original Nintendo days on up to current gaming systems. I really don't go back to the Atari days. So perhaps the Atari logo's are a bit "too" classic.

Thanks again for your hard work!

Nice, Grafxhell. Love that idea. I didn't have Arcade font installed in X11, but nice application here, and I like the mod of the controller to create uniquity, while retaining some recognizance.

Please take a look at the examples that I posted above.......can you make a few examples using those styles? I think I want to steer away from the pictures and more to a logo built around the company name and/or "CGW" initials.

Thanks, Mike

I used your examples to choose font and style for the new versions. I think I have a better idea now of what you're looking for: A wordmark. More tomorrow.
