Suggest the perfect font for a logo and receive $200 (or £125 / €150) if chosen ;-)

Hello.

I have a company that builds/manages web software as well as providing design services to a small number of clients. For quite a while we've looked at changing our logo to a simple wordmark. However; finding a perfect font that "just looks right" for our company name has proved elusive. We're great at designing stuff for other people but our own seems to be an achilies heel. To be honest, it's now driving me crazy lol.

People on here are extremely knowledgable about fonts (more so than me) so I thought I'd reach out for some help. If you suggest a font and we decide to use it, I will send you $200 (or £125 / €150) via PayPal.

Brief:
---------------------------
i) The name of the company is Aylis
ii) Letters can be upper/lower (Aylis AYLIS aylis)

Call for submissions for "Material Of The Future" exhibition.

Forums: 

Organisers of the International Design Festival Design Attack invite designers to submit their proposals for the exhibition "Material of the Future", a part of the first edition of Design Attack Festival, which will be held in Krakow on 6-30 November 2010.

The subject of the exhibition Material of the Future will revolve around the evolution of materials considered to be the future - from plastic (first bakelites, tomofon, the first biodegradable materials, laminates AbetPrint) towards ecology, nanotechnologies, and hybrid composites. The exhibition will present works and projects of Polish and foreign designers interested in the issue of using new materials in 3d design.

open poker championship logo

Hi,

I was asked to design a logo for the 'OPC'.
Couple of things I took in account, it should have an official look to it,
use of blue and red (nba-nfl...), the short for 'open poker championship' should
be well readable (easy reference for people;'yeah I'm attending the OPC')
and there should be a direct link to poker in the main visual.

I created the following logo's but I feel there could be some improvement (mainly on the visual consistency-coherence and used type),

It would be nice if you guys could share some thoughts !

Thanks in advance,

Matt
