Our goal is to make the best tools for people who are serious about having fun raiding in World of Warcraft.
Our users are World of Warcraft (and potentially other MMO game) players who are serious enough to want good tools to coordinate and plan their in-game events but keep in mind that this is all a game and it's supposed to be fun. So the seriousness is kind of tongue-in-cheek.
This logo image will be part of the branding for a web application targeting World of Warcraft players who participate in "raids" which is a pretty broad demographic.
I'm looking for a stylized face of a panda who seems like he is very serious about his work. My vision has the panda wearing some style of reading glasses, but if you come up with another way to convey that look of seriousness I am open to that. Overall, the image needs to mix the playfulness and silliness of a cartoony panda face with a serious look and demeanor.
The graphical style needs to be clean enough that it could be reduced and used as a 2-color logo. Broad lines, solid colors, etc. Definitely not looking for realism.
