Typically, logos are clean and striking. Logos are often made of what are called vectors rather than photographs, which are bitmaps, or made of lots of dots.

Go look at these design inspiration sites and see if you can find a few you like.
Like all good artists you are going to conceptually appropriate a design you like.
Wonderful collection of images made from text
These sites have LOTS of vectors, or .svg files, that you can download and edit yourself.
Fabulous collection of SVG or .ai graphics files that you can edit with tools like Inkscape, Janvas or Gravit Designer.
The Noun Project has millions of images available as both .png and .svg files (which you can edit). Maybe one of these might be the start of your logo or design.
* Remember to credit the original author.
Large collection of downloadable .svg files
Fabulous vector image editor.
