House of Geeks is the website of a group of friends who play video games every weekend in Beaverton, Oregon. I was asked to make a logo, which was too much pressure, so I made a series of banners that could rotate as the header for the site. The site has never been completed, but every so often, I make a new banner. I have made 24 banners. Enjoy.
