I think it depends how you do it.

For example, if you look at the CSS-Tricks logo.

The text is there, however, you only see an image. This is done by giving it a background and using text-indent to ‘hide’ the text.

#logo {
background:url("images/css-tricks.png") repeat scroll -10px -10px transparent;
display:block;
height:53px;
left:15px;
position:absolute;
text-indent:-9999px;
top:20px;
width:232px;
}

I’m not sure how google would feel about you doing a whole website like this though. I’m guessing Google wouldn’t be too happy about it.
