I am looking for a logo for my blog, [url removed, login to view] (currently inactive). It is a blog about Microsoft SQL Server (databases) and I tie in my passion for hockey goaltending. The tag line for the blog is "Saving databases one query at a time." My job is a database developer and I have been a hockey goaltender for almost 20 years now.
The design I am looking for would be of a goaltender making a glove save ([url removed, login to view]) and have the common database icon ([url removed, login to view]) incorporated. One idea I had would be the database icon is the logo on the goalie's jersey. You can be creative with the database icon and add things around it.
I would like to stick with Blue and Gray for the color scheme and you can also incorporate Red and Gold/Yellow for accent, basically the Colorado State Flag colors ([url removed, login to view]). If you can get a number on the goalie's jersey sleeves, please put the number 30.
In the link that shows goalie glove saves all the goalies are catching with their left hand. I am a southpaw and actually catch with my right hand, so if the picture of the goalie can be catching with their right hand, that would be ideal.
Here is an example of a fellow database blogger who combined his love for cooking and his logo incorporated both databases and cooking: [url removed, login to view] I like this graphical style.
My plan is to also use this logo to eventually create business cards, t-shirts and polo shirts.
