I've been planning on making a business card I can hand out (and pass around the design) for rpg.stackexchange.com. I can setup all the text I want, but it still looks plain. Could someone design a simple graphic for the site?

Note: This is not expected to be permanent, but something we can use for advertising the site in beta.

I suppose each design should be an answer and we vote for the best? – BBischof Sep 20 '10 at 22:40
We can absolutely do that @BBischof. – C. Ross Sep 21 '10 at 0:58

I've always thought that a d20 is a really good representation of role-playing games.

This image has the 'Don't-need-a-license-'cause-I-drew-it-and-you-can-have-it' license. I cranked this out very quickly. If there is interest in it, I can take the time to do a better version.

So would anyone be against it if i printed this out and put it on a flyer to hang up at a game shop? – DForck42 Aug 26 '11 at 20:02
@DForck42, I'm ok with it, but you should get the ok from the stackexchange guys. – Stewbob Aug 26 '11 at 20:16
A d20 is a better metaphor for RPGs than a d6, because a) it's always been one of the most important dice in D&D and it's derivatives and therefore historically linked to rpgs, and b) the d6 is more commonly associated with board and dice games than rpgs. – Jo-Herman Haugholt Jan 5 '12 at 10:34
Why would you put the 1 as the predominant side, your evil you are! – Pyrodante Jan 31 '12 at 23:50

I like @Iain M Norman's one, with the question mark.

Here's something similar, using some Wikimedia commons dice instead of the paid stock art (and notably cheaper-looking as a consequence :P)

Tossed in part of the Stack Exchange logo, but I'm not a lawyer and don't understand if that's allowed according to the Stack Apps Legal Page.

Here's another with more StackExchange branding borrowed/stolen:

I like having the address in an address bar. Nice touch. – Numenetics Sep 22 '10 at 16:50
Given the legal, I would say not. I asked for clarification here – C. Ross Sep 22 '10 at 17:37
+1 Incorporating a bit of stackexchange is nice – MadMAxJr Sep 22 '10 at 17:41

As a stop gap feel free to use this:

Is this covered by the CC-wiki license? I've used paid for stock art, so my license wouldn't extend to anyone else reselling it, that's all.

I think that no matter what the site ends up being called, the D6 is near perfect for our question and answer site!

Can we get a link to the license for that image? IANAL, but I'd be interested in digging into the license to see what we can and can't do with it. It really is a perfect image. – SevenSidedDie Sep 21 '10 at 8:40
It's purchased under a standard license at the moment. istockphoto.com/license_comparison.php – Iain M Norman Sep 21 '10 at 9:09
Ah. So as purchased it's prohibited by: 4.4 use any of the Content as part of a trade-mark, design-mark, trade-name, business name, service mark, or logo – Iain M Norman Sep 21 '10 at 9:11

Oh well seems I'll have to redraw something similar. – Iain M Norman Sep 21 '10 at 9:16
Ross you can use this for advertising purposes perfectly fine though, just not as part of a logo. – Iain M Norman Sep 21 '10 at 9:26
OK, like I said this isn't official, just wanted something shiny to pass out. – C. Ross Sep 21 '10 at 12:02
