Would you like to be a part of something special? We're looking for talented designers to help us create a logo that will serve as the centerpiece of a brand new sports related brand. You'll work with us to create a logo for an athlete who is at the top of his profession and who will soon be appearing in Golf Digest Magazine. Whether you love sports or not, we'd love to see what you have to offer.
Jamie Sadlowski- The Brand is the Athlete Himself
We seek the help of the talented 99designs community in helping us to create a logo for a brand new venture. Everysport has its stars and many of these stars are their own brand, complete withan identifiable logo. Lebron James has his own logo, Tiger Woods has his ownlogo and so do many others.
Long driveis a sport where athletes attempt to hit a golf ball as far as humanlypossible. It’s aggressive and oozes power. One of the sports stars is thereigning RE/MAX World Champion Jamie Sadlowski, who will be featured in theupcoming January issue of Golf Digest. We are inthe process of creating the Jamie Sadlowski brand and want to create anincredible logo that will be the centerpiece.
Jamie is anaccomplished hockey player as well as a long driver. Our goal is to create alogo that somehow showcases the two sports and the synergy between the two.Think golf clubs (specifically the driver) and hockey sticks or golf balls andhockey pucks. We would also like to see some designs using his initials, J.S., thatalso use the hockey/golf theme, if possible and/or a silhouette of him swinging. A great example of using theinitials is the aforementioned Lebron James logo which you can see here:
Again,using the initials isn’t mandatory, just something we thought might beinteresting. To give you some additional inspiration, you can see an image ofJamie in his backswing by visiting:
Colors areup to you but remember that the logo needs to speak to power so use of moreaggressive, vibrant colors is probably more appropriate. This logo will also befrequently used on apparel so it needs to be something that will be clear andlook great when embroidered.
Logo will need to be created in vector format, .ai or .eps file (preferably CS3). Please make sure to outline fonts and/or send fonts (MAC compatible).
Pleasedon’t hesitate to ask questions. Look forward to seeing some great designs!
- Use of symbols relating to golf and hockey, e.g. hockey stick and golf club (specifically the driver). Can also use a silouhette image of the golfer in his swing that somehow conveys the synergy between golf and hockey. Creating the synergy between the two sports is critical.
- Powerful colors. No yellows, light blues, etc. This logo needs to say "POWER".
- Weak colors
- Images of golf courses
- Logos that would be difficult to embroider
- Logos that won't work well on both dark and light colors. This logo will appear on both dark and light clothing so it's critical it works equally well on both.
