Help Us Out: Create Destroyed Controller's Logo!

I'm quickly approaching a year and a half running Destroyed Controller, yet I have no banner/logo/favicon for it. I don't know shit about Photoshop, and I don't have the patience to learn the intricacies about it.

That's where you come in.

If you feel like you have the time and dedication to create the logo to be used for this blog, keep a few things in mind:

  • K.I.S.S. God help you if you don't know what it stands for. I'm all for subtlety; I don't want flashy, image-based logos. A nice, font-based logo works. You can do what you want with the font, but please keep images to a bare minimum, if not non-existant. An idea that I had was to use a mixture of Angelic War and BitDust Two. Feel free to work with that, or scrap it and go your own route. 
  • Keep The Theme This is a video game centric blog. Keep the logo within the confines of this particular entertainment media. I know I'm trying to keep images to a minimum, but if you have to use one, using an image that shows a - get ready for this - destroyed controller would be best.
  • Make it Ba Dass This is a banner that will be the mainstay for the site for quite some time, so make it pretty.
  • Image Size The banner can be of various sizes and shapes (preferably a nice, long, rectangular banner), but I do need a favicon version. Think of this as the banner's Mini Me: no more than 16x16 pixels for the favicon, and a nice, large, squared image for the inevitable Facebook page.
  • Don't Get Protective While the banner will be used as the logo, refrain from signing the image with your name/callsign. I'm all for giving credit where it's due, but I don't need the image tainted with something other than what the site stands for. You'll get as many internetz for payment as you possibly can.
  • Send All Images to Our Email There is a single email link for Destroyed Controller. You can find this in the side bar to the left. Please send all submissions to that address; do not post them as a comment.

I understand that this blog doesn't get a whole lot of traffic, but I'm sure there's a few passerby souls that are willing to lend their services. There's no reward (read: cash monies), so this is purely donations I'm accepting. Donations in the form of awesome Photoshop skillz.

Yes, 'skillz' with a Z.
