We now need a logo to give the site a certain touch. the idea we had was to have a design as minimalistic as google to give the user the perfect experience. However, the logo should not be copied from Google's logo and should clearly stand apart from Google.
To give you some insights on the name of the website:
Alpha in financial terms means to generate an outperformance, i.e. beating the market. The term "combat" is self explainatory. So the name implies that we are fighting (in a good way) for outperformance every day.
The logo needs to be 500px wide, and should fit perfectly in the white space provided of the current text header of the blog title.
