@ Contest Holder, don't worry, every professional here has designed the logo as vector, w/o to go into excessive explanations, we understood perfectly what you asked for and will deliver quality vector files.
Every logo you like and rated in this contest should retain readability at small size, and the font choice for "Survivor" should match the style of "DayZ" or be complementary. Good luck to everyone!
I'm sorry, but I'm a bit confused.
I've worked with few UT/twitch content creators, and based on my experience and observations, it seems to me you slightly wrong about what you exactly need.
You're asking for a logo for the YT series, which would be used in the merchandize, thumbnails, banners, and probably in the intro/outro clips, right? But more than half of these logos you've highly rated aren't capable to be used like that. It's too messy, photorealistic, and more than that - it's all raster images (PNGs).
Raster images is very hard to manipulate doing animations and graphics - you can't scale, separate and edit the objects without losses. It's a struggle making merch out of it, because colors and outlines would probably be a total mess on the print.
And that's why my entries #165 and #239 are based on the vector images. So i could create the whole YT channel design with it for you. And trust me, if you would like to expand your brand in the future - other designers, animators and print companies would be happy that you have vector logo.
Hope you find it at least helpful, because I really don't want you to waste your money for design that wouldn't work for your channel.
And If you have any questions - please DM me, would be glad to help you regardless.
