Indie Game Girl provides marketing support to independent video game developers. On my blog at indiegamegirl.com, is where I post weekly marketing tips and tricks for free. In addition to that, I offer paid marketing services including consulting to individual independent video game developers, freelance writing for trade publications and speaking at various game developer trade shows, events and academic institutions.
I'd like my logo design to convey the following three things:
1. Video games: the logo needs to convey that Indie Game Girl has something to do with video games. The most iconic representation is of course a video game controller, but I'm open to other ideas.
2. Marketing/Promotion: since I provide marketing services, I'd like the logo to convey this. The way that I envision "showing" marketing is to illustrate its effects, i.e., how marketing can grow your fan base, attract attention to your game, etc.
3. Woman: Indie Game Girl is not a company of thousands of people. I am the Indie Game Girl, so I'd like to incorporate me into the pictorial mark and I think having it covey a woman might be the easiest way to do this. Please note though, I don't want the logo looking very girly or feminine. If the representation of women is added, that representation must convey confidence and professionalism. This is another area I'm open to ideas on.
In terms of style, I'm very much a fan of simple, clean and clever.
