We're a Gaming Community named "Cynical Gaming" - we mainly play MMORPGs, Shooters, and MOBA games. We are very PvP (Player versus Player) oriented. We're looking for a logo that can retain its look when it's shrunk down - in game pixel size for the icon will be around 20x20 - but we're also looking for an icon that looks amazing on our website. As for colors, it'd be nice to have something that works well in color but can also be switched to being a flat white or a flat black too.
Games we play:
Ashes of Creation: https://www.ashesofcreation.com/
Black Desert Online: https://www.blackdesertonline.com/
League of Legends: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/
Player Unknown's Battleground: https://www.playbattlegrounds.com/main.pu
(and many more)
Goals: We want a unique, identifiable, icon that can be used both in-game, on our streams, and in our social media. It can be detailed when it's large, but I'd like it to retain it's idea when shrunken.
Audience: We are a group of PC gamers. All of us really enjoy competitive games and we get pretty heated in our competition. We actively have approximately 300 members playing with us. The age range is between 20-40yr, and mainly male.
Style Preference: Simple, it needs to be shrunken for in-game icons, but I'd still like it to be impressive when at its normal size. We are looking really looking for our identity in this logo. We are probably wanting something more cartoony in style.
