We have no existing designs, so you've got a lot of creative license here. Feel free to experiment with fonts, colours, and potentially incorporating shapes/symbols.
The only shapes/concepts I can think of incorporating are a) a robot (to go with dapbot concept) and b) a video game. But I'm more than happy for you to use neither or look for ideas outside of this (feel free to build ideas from the description of 'dapGames' above...)
I am looking for something relatively simple and elegant. I have attached some logos that I like the look of...
My only other note is: I don't want the logo to be TOO tied to the 'video games' idea - we need to give the business the opportunity to grow beyond selling just video games, and I don't want to constrain that. This means that:
1. The word 'games' in the logo should be able to be removed/replaced with something else (like 'store').
2. If the concept of a video game is included as a shape in the logo, it should be fairly abstract I think...
I will definitely try to give plenty of feedback as we go along so that we can refine what we are looking for.
