The desired audience will be anybody involved in the poker world. This includes poker players of all types, members of the press, or even companies looking to sponsor Jungleman.
The text needs to read "Jungleman" and we're going to need an icon to accompany it. So we would be able to use just the icon, or the icon with the text. Below are some examples w/ feedback:
Using card suits in the logo is really played out. Something more creative & different is encouraged.
http://logopond.com/logos/c11b24872…2b726c.png - Deep Guy - This one here is by far my favorite. The simplicity of the design (obviously we don't want any detailed backdrop - probably black with white lettering), the boldness of the design all work well - JM for Jungleman.
I feel like with the logo, we should be thinking of the phrase "I am Jungleman." It should be bold, powerful, but simple - authoritative.
http://logopond.com/logos/133224000…ee98cf.png - Jupiter - This logo has a very nice image, which if Jungleman were to use one, I think should be in a similar style to this one. Not fully formed, a little graphic designed-out. Again, I like the boldness, un-ornateness of the lettering, the layout is also okay I think for a logo that incorporates an image.
http://logopond.com/logos/eae5c1109…ca9f5c.png - inveni - This image is too prickly, we want something colorless, the typeface is just weak and the Italics and no upper-case letters are drawbacks.
The icon will go into this layout: http://www.gallyapp.com/tf_themes/j…p/#panel-2
