I am a chess hobbyist who is putting together a website that will allow players from around the world to play each other. The play is correspondence (turn-based) - not real time.
We have a prototype site built and we are looking to find a great logo to kick-start the graphics design process.
Chess dorks and casual players everywhere!
The requirements are very simple and open-ended - we are very open minded and don't have much in the way of preconceived notions. There are two keywords that come to mind that should be focused upon:
The main color underlying the overall logo should be blue (or blues). You are free to use whatever other colors you think work well, but the main theme will revolve around the color (or shades of) blue.
Chess can often be thought of as a slow and stuffy game - maybe so, but for people who enjoy the game it can be anything but. We want something which conveys a feeling of motion and/or dynamism - something interesting and exciting.
