How Joshua Meadows started their logo design journey

Company name

ctrlclick.com

Overview

My personal website is currently at joshuameadows.com; I've decided that I want to rebrand it into something that's not quite so me-centric, bring on additional writers, and flesh it out into a larger blog in the vein of Kotaku, Joystiq or Engadget. To accomplish that I'm moving the site from its current domain to ctrlclick.com, so I want a logo that encapsulates this.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The site as it is right now has a lot of video game news and reviews, along with entries about relevant tech stuff, internet happenings and things like that. While the site leans heavily towards video games it's not 100% what I write about, so I want something that encompasses and screams video games, technology, internet culture and stuff like that.

Requirements

First and foremost I need this in a Fireworks/Illustrator-compatible vector image. Flat JPGs and such won't be any good for me, I need something I can manipulate after the fact.

I suggest you check out the existing site (joshuameadows.com) to look around at the current layout and entries so you have a feel towards content and colors, then look at other sites like kotaku.com or engadget.com to see what I am looking for in terms of iconic logo. Basically something that if it were on a shirt or bag or another site you'd know at once it was for a blog and the subject matter of said blog.

Personally I'm not a big fan of text, I would much prefer something that's simply an image which clearly screams "ctrlclick.com!" to a viewer, but I will entertain the text itself if it's integral to the design and works well. I'm looking for something that's clean and simple without being boring, something iconic that makes it very apparent at first glance that you're looking at a logo for a video game site (but as above, the content isn't *only* video games, so as long as it's representative of gaming, internet stuff, computers, tech culture and so on it'll fit under that wide umbrella)

If you look at joshuameadows.com, the placement of the logo will be where the current anime-face is right now, so I need something that will look appropriate at a range of sizes from small to large.
