I'm in the process of redesigning various parts of the site and want to move from a long rectangular logo to a less long/more squareish format that will work better with a new header layout (see attached), across social media, etc. I'd like to take this opportunity to upgrade the look of the logo to a more polished look that represents the BadgeHungry brand (trustworthy, helpful, casual, and friendly; the site helps players achieve their goals and solves people's problems). The original logo was created with Pogo.com's branding in mind -- please see current BH logo, Pogo screenshot, and Club Pogo screenshot -- it has the same playful/fun feel as Pogo/Club Pogo but is unique enough that people should immediately understand it's a different site not maintained by Pogo. You do not need to use the exclamation point on BadgeHungry. Feel free to use the existing font and winged badge symbol as a starting point. Go wild with creativity.
I really like the look of this icon set, how it's hand drawn and casual but still looks professional:
The BadgeHungry logo will primarily be used on web properties but future plans may include print as well -- I'll need the final logo in the proper formats for this.
The BadgeHungry web site currently has 3 somewhat separate sections: the blog/main site, rank tracker, and Q&A. For the web site use, the logo must look good with text added under it to represent the different parts of the site ("a Pogo.com fan site", "Questions & Answers", or "Rank Tracker" depending upon where the visitor is on the site).
Current Font: Gill Sans Ultra Bold
General Current Color scheme of the site:
Grays #efefef, #dddddd accents
Would like to keep the Blue, and maybe sparingly use the orange for emphasis/a pop of color. I am open to other colors for the pop.
