The entire point for a logo is marketability. If the logo does market a product, concept, or organization it is pointless. So, you need to ultimately consider the marketable aspects of your image before it suits any function. A logo is much more recognizable as a simple flat polygon type shape rather than text. Simple shapes are easy for our simple minds to instantly store and recognize without any complex thought processes, but text......

A logo is best created as a 2 color vector based image. By two colors i mean a foreground color and a background color (this includes transparency as a background color). As a vector image the logo is extremely versatile so that it may be infinately upsized without any quality loss for large scale printing. A simple two color logo ensures that it will be simple to print at good quality on one color text documents.

I strongly, STRONGLY, suggest you do not initially create the logo as a raster image. If you create it as a vector image you can always rasterize it later for additional complex display modification.
