We are looking for something cool, and a design that communicates "premium" but also "playful." We tend to prefer simple designs as opposed to overwrought images. We also prefer abstract (but symmetrical) as opposed to literal depictions of tangible items.
Please keep the name, "Gambit," separate from any logo image - in other words, there should be space between name and the image.
Additionally, in the first day of the contest, we've gotten some great designs that use the letter G as well as a glove or hand-like image incorporated into the logo. We like the ones we've gotten so far, but we'd also be interested in seeing more abstract designs that do not incorporate either the letter G or the literal appearance of a hand.
One thought we had was to play off the definition of gambit -
"a device, action, or opening remark, typically one entailing a degree of risk, that is calculated to gain an advantage." To pull off a gambit, in any scenario, requires resourcefulness, wit, and of course, some luck.
