How Bob Tabor started their logo design journey

Summary

This contest is for a logo for a browser-based casual strategy game called Aetris.com, currently in development. It is a science-fiction game set in a distant galaxy. (Think: Star Wars). In fact, as the story goes, the "aetris" is what we're calling the center of the galaxy that spins off gases that will cool and become solar systems filled with planets. Players will attempt to control this "aetris" by partnering with some players while fighting against others. In regards to a logo, I'm looking for a simple idea that conveys a strong brand.

Company name

Aetris.com

- Futuristic / Technology
- Center of the Galaxy
- Strength / Conquer / StrategyThe logo will be used primarily on a website, but might be used on other items eventually, like a (black or dark colored) t-shirt or coffee mug (assuming we have some success.) :)
I don't have a strong preference for a "typeface only logo" or for some image along with the text. I'm open to either idea.

If it helps, you can see some of the artwork from previous contests that I've held here on 99designs ... this should give you an idea of *some* of the art on a given page. The logo DOES NOT HAVE TO NECESSARILY FOLLOW THIS STYLE ... but I thought, as artists, you might want to see as much as possible to help you get some cool ideas flowing.

While we don't have a website design ... yet ... (that will be the next contest) if we did, I would love for the navigation menus it to look something like this ... so the logo shouldn't CLASH with a more glossy design ... although, again, the next contest will help us determine what the overall aesthetic should be:

I give prompt, courteous feedback and pay promptly after the auction as well ... I have a history of successful contests. At this time, however, I can only pay via PayPal ... sorry, no Western Union ... I'll be applying for an online account soon, but it takes two weeks to get it.

Best wishes to all, and please feel free to ask and followup questions you may have.

Good luck!

Wants

- A strong branding image
- Simple is better, but not too simple!
- The source .ai or .psd files

Don't want

- We don't want pastel or cheery colors ... our version of space is not a happy place. :)
- Unnecessarily busy ... although you could probably sway me on this one, depending on the coolness of the implementation
- Childish ... cutesy
