Not sure if this is the right forum to ask this, i am relatively new to the site.

However, I am looking for a gfx designer to make me a simple "logo" for my website, which will be used on fliers, business cards, etc.

What i am looking for is a dark theme with the letters "g" and "r"  made using 2 scythes.  simplicity is a key factor here as we do not want an overly elaborate logo, obv printing prices play part for this, as well as familiarity when an individual sees the logo.  Colors i would prefer to be used include grey, black, red, maybe some gold
to have a look at our site and maybe get some ideas visit www.gamereaper.net

unfortunately atm i cannot afford to pay anyone for this, wish i could.

please msg me with any ideas you may have for this, and huge thanks in advance.

So you want someone to design you a logo for free?

If you can't afford to pay, maybe offer some kind of non-monetary incentive? Otherwise, why would someone do it?

I wouldn't assume anything unless you state it.

Maybe you could post of visitor stats for your website so any potential designers can see what kind of exposure their free work might get.

Also as an FYI, your site doesn't render properly on an iPad. The left hand menu is half off the screen. Example

There are plenty of websites that design logos really cheaply. I think many of these low cost logo design companies are probably run out of India and eastern europe. Although I find these types of logos really bland and boring, but each to their own.

yea we only started the site in march, so currently not a ton of exposure, but always growing.  we have been working to fix these tablet issues as well as some IE users experience this same problem.  slowly getting the bugs worked out, only to find new addons we like and having to debug those as well....lol, it is a never ending cycle, but it is tons of fun.
