Remember, this is just an example. You can create any kind of logo you'd like. If your logo is for a company or product that you made up, it might help to include a short description. Good luck, and may the best logo win!

I don't think I've ever worked this hard before on a Saturday morning. My brain needs a bath. First for everything, I guess.
It looks right in Mozilla and Chrome. It's a little off in IE10 b/c as far as I know IE10 is not border-box compatible. Did not check Opera or Safari.
This is my first real attempt at anything code-wise (besides the stuff in the videos) so feedback is welcome!

Created a logo for the company I'm working for at the moment. I honestly thought it was going to be easy to do then I began it and took a few hours to wrap my mind around how to do it. Considering this is the first time I did a pure css logo I think it was pretty fun to do.

I've been working on a website for a little business I'm hoping to launch in the next month or so...
Here's the CSS version of the logo! - it could use some refinement as the curvatures are a little out compared to the original below.
also, forgive my horrible code please! it's way past bed time ;D
This is the CompTIA Security+ logo. I don't have any particular affinity for CompTIA or this cert--I just happened to have acquired it a few days ago to validate knowledge from some college courses I've taken. The fonts aren't a precise match but I had fun doing this, since it was kind of my first actual website product. It took about 5-10 hours to do.

What about fonts from Google fonts or something? External resources allowed?
