We are working on a new look and some really cool new features, but the thing that is really keeping us stumped is putting together a new logo for the header. Instead of beating our heads against the wall, we figured we would see what you guys can come up with.

Clarifications: (Updated 2/24/08)
1) You can submit an individual logo or a logo in a header showcasing it. Since we want to make a header with the logo, a header showcasing it would be preferred but not required.
2) We are looking for a logo to brand the site with and we want to be able to the logo you create in both the header and any apparel that we may want to put it on. You are welcome to design it as large as you want, but it needs to still look good when shrunken down into a header or on a shirt.
3) What you submit needs to be an original work so that we don't run into copyright issues using it.
4) Nothing from the original logo needs to stay. The new logo will be going onto a new site layout and you are welcome to change both the font and the slogan.

The contest is still open and has extended until Sunday 3/9/08. All logos submitted before Monday morning will be evaluated. On Monday, we will have a silent vote to get some feedback from the community.

Evaluation Criteria:

1) Logo - This is first and foremost a logo contest, so we want make sure the logo works outside of the header it is presented in.
2) Legality - We want to be able to brand the site with the winning logo, so anything that Blizzard has the rights to won't be suitable outside of the header. Ultimately, the winning submission will have to meet this criterion.
3) Aesthetics - Does it look good?
4) Concept - Do we like the idea behind the logo? Does it fit the site?
5) Bonus Points: Header - We gave a small amount of bonus points for those who were able to fit it in the header. It is not required to put it in a header for us, but it helps give us context for the logo on the website.

Here are the current front runners (in no particular order) based on the criteria above:

Kalthrân
Pro - Looks really nice with a creative layout.
Con - Legality issues concerning the use of Blizzard source material.

Airu
Pro - Unique artwork, looks nice.
Cons - Not sold on the font.

Ellic
Pro - Unique Design that emphasizes "AJ" branding.
Con - Visuals don't tie into what the site stands for.

Remedios
Pro - Really like the concept.
Con - Could be cleaned up a bit, would like to see some color scheme variations.
Posted Image

Peavy
Pro - Recognizable and fits the site.
Con - Too similar to WoW logo.

Right now, the only limitations we have been using are 100 px high and up to 1000 px in width. Whatever the winner comes up with will be the header (or part of it) depending on how large they design it.

Does that make sense?

Normally I'm just one of many lurkers snooping around the forum, but I just couldn't resist this, and registered. Was bored and came up with this; .psd files are obviously available, and the text can still be changed as this is just a draft version.

The Question is... shall the original Arena Junkies font stay or not?^^

edit: my image crashed the forum... made a link out of it.
edit2: Must the original "PvP strategy and discussion" be in the picture? If not:
