In 2007 I designed this logo for a podcast show called the Video Games Show. One of the longest running video games podcasts on the internet.
It was an opportunity to design a logo from scratch. The inspiration for the logo was the classic Mario games from Nintendo.
The logo developed block like levels on the "V", as if to suggest steps in a level leading you into the words. Then two buttons inside the "O"s reflecting the pad on the right.
The show can be found at www.videogamesshow.com
I made a special icon version which made it onto XBOX LIVE in a community Gamerpic pack. I made two versions but version 1 was used.
