David Wagg got their new logo & business card by running a design contest:
Recombinant Games seeks alluring logo
Check out David Wagg's Logo & business card contest…
Games & Recreational
I develop strategy/puzzle games (PC & mobile) for students aged 13-18. I aim to entertain, but also increase understanding of science. I'm not trying to stuff a textbook into a video game. I'm picking a few important scientific ideas that fit well to game mechanics. The central message I wish to convey is that my games have value as pure entertainment - but there is also an opportunity to learn. To students this could be a way of doing two things at once, learning something just by playing a game. For parents, this could be a way to spark an interest in science for kids who aren't otherwise academic. This is a start-up so there is no existing branding, you have a blank slate to work with.
Other color requirements
White background, black text. Green and purple might work for the design. But I'm open to suggestions.
The logo will be used primarily online and in-game. Ideally I'd like to have it incorporate a design that works on its own as an icon or abbreviated mark, but this is not essential. To save you googling it, 'recombinant' is a term from biology best explained by example. If you have a plant with tasty fruit, and another that can survive cold weather, you might cross them to produce a plant with both characteristics - a recombinant. It is usually used in the context of recombinant DNA or organisms. I'm looking forward to seeing your designs! Additional note for new entrants: please read my general feedback comments on the contest page, where I've given some additional guidance.

Great to work with and very responsive! I had many edits and I never felt like I was being a bother. I was heard and provided exactly what I wanted. Look forward to working with this designer again for future projects!
