Depending on skill levels and how much you follow comic books, some superhero logos could work for next year.
I did a bat signal one several years ago. Spidey's might be a bit trickier, but not too bad. Superman's would definitely be hard for non-artists like myself, but you could try it out. Green Lantern could be cool, or any others, really.
or, if you're more of a computer nerd, Mac or Windows logo. favorite car brand logo. the tree of Gondor. inscription on the Ruling Ring of Power (in english or black script, either way I would be amazed). Balrog (that would take skill. again, I would be amazed). crossed lightsabers. Star wars logo. TRON logo. light cycles (1982 TRON or Legacy). Identity disks (1982 TRON or Legacy). any takers?
I tried these, I'm not skilled enough to do them though....
