    Hey everyone, I'm looking to begin creating some indie games. I'll be making different varieties of games, the details of which I haven't finalized yet. I plan on getting a website up and running to support these games, and that's where I need your help. I'm looking for someone to create a logo for me. My "company" name is ThunderStruck Games, and I'd like the logo to reflect that.

    What I'm looking for:

    • A logo that includes the name "ThunderStruck Games"
    • References the "Thunderstruck" idea.. Clouds, lightning, etc.

    In my head, I visualize a cloud in the background with a lightning bolt foreground. Overlapping that, the text "ThunderStruck Games".

    Thank you in advance for any interest/submissions. If you have any questions, please post them. I'll do my best to respond as soon as I see them.

    Thanks again,
    Silver


    (Note: I'm not making these games for profit, this is entirely a hobby. As such, I cannot offer payment for your work. However, I will give you credit on the website and include your name in every game Readme.txt as Logo Developer. If my stance changes and I sell my work, I have no problem paying you for your work.)

    Hmm, I'll give it a shot. I just made a new logo for my "fake" indie game company (See sig), so I'm in the mood to do some more graphical work.

    How's this look?

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Nothing too fancy...Lightning isn't exactly the best for sophisticated design...I'll try it with the cloud next, but I personally think it would look better without one.

    That looks really good! If its not too much trouble, I'd like to see one with a cloud too, just to give me some options and to compare.
    Do you mind if I edit that one you posted? Once I'm done, I can post my variation. I just wanted to make sure you were alright with that.

    Thanks for the quick responses,
    -Silver.

    That's exactly how I envisioned it! That's amazing. Could you change the text to a darker color though? If you prefer, I can edit that myself.
    Thanks so much,
    -Silver

    I do like that, however I have a "minor" vision problem that causes me to have a hard time reading certain colors when they overlap similar colors. Would you mind making the text even darker, perhaps black?

    I appreciate your work, thank you very much once again.

    Oh, and what software are you using to create this logo (or your sig)?

    And thanks! I used Photoshop CS5 for them.

    Absolutely perfect. I'll be sure to use that logo! Thanks for putting up with my constant nagging ;)

    I'll be sure to credit you on my site, thanks a lot.
