I will hold off posting the "serious" designs until the submission deadline, but I will start posting the joke designs as soon as they come in.


I was going to pass on this one, but expect a Micholangeo's David made in paintbrush from me in a few days. Its gonna rock hardkore.

I will have a poll to help me judge, but ultimately, I will make the final decisions.

I had to travel to Savannah, GA on business recently and I saw a chain of gas stations in that area called EL CHEAPO. When I saw their logo it reminded me of CheapAssGamer. The logo was a cartoony donkey and its hind legs were kicking and bucking a big dollar sign. It was so funny. That logo would be perfect for CAG because a donkey is an "ass". haha!

does this have to be a logo logo, or a banner for the tops of pages, or either?

No copyright, that mean no game characters? Cause like every gaming related site uses game characters in their banners.

120x60? That's this size:

I know you said it can be a little bigger though. If this is for business cards or sigs, I can understand. But I was assuming a front page or forum logo?

(Sorry that you're getting barraged with questions. ha)

Yes, it can be bigger, but should not really big like a banner. It does not need to be that shape, it can be round or whatever...

My thinking is that the logo will be placed the top right hand corner of the front page.

I'm sure my lawyer would not approve. She's tough!

As long as you are answering questions...

Would an animated gif be acceptable, or do you want something that could also be printed on cheapass business cards and cheapass stationery? (Not to mention cheapass T-shirts)

I'd prefer a non-animated logo.

Is it okay if we scale up the 120x60 dimensions? If I make one, I'd like to do it larger, but have it so it can be scaled down if need be.

Absolutely...the 120x60 is just a guideline.

I don't mean to take anyone's idea, but I think the donkey logo is a great idea and I will try to design one with my ultra-limited computer graphics skills. It probably won't even be that good but I just wanna give it a shot without anyone getting mad at me for taking their idea....
Is this OK? :?

Sure thing, but I get the free game. Haha!

I couldn't find the exact EL CHEAPO Gas Station logo, but here's a pic of a donkey kicking. Make one like it and make it kick a big $dollar sign.
