We would like to create a logo that has the cool crossfit branding type of look, but not quite as masculine or hardcore (like no skulls or devils). We are trying to cater to a higher end clientele, so something classy and clean. We would like something that is really aesthetically pleasing so we could brand items and clothing with the logo. We would like to do a cool t-shirt line playing off that cool crossfit type design style.
Ideally we would also like to have a symbol or crest associated with it. Don't know if we want this simple, or more intricate, just want it to look sharp. Maybe a badge look to play with the academy theme? I think cross bars using dumbbells or barbells would be cool and I would like to maybe see a star or three in it. I also maybe would like to include est. 2005, but only if it looks good.
The first picture I included I liked, might be a good look to just put our business name in that. I like the lion theme, including a lion as a team mascot type of thing would be cool, it's not necessary, but I would like to explore this to see what it could look like.
The second logo I really like, it's very clean. I love the barbells in the logo as opposed to dumbbells. I also like the kettle bell, but don't know if that would make us look too crossfit.
The third attachment is a great example of a logo with a crest, I think I would like the symbol to be something like that. It might even look good with one star at the bottom of the crest.
4th attachment is cool, while we didn't want skulls in our logo, the skull and crossbones look with exercise equipment looks good.
5th attachment I kind of liked, I liked that stars in it. This was just another example of the crossfit type designs that I'm trying to emulate.
Last attachment is an example of what the crest might look like if it were more intricate as opposed to simple
**Update: I'm adding another crest that I really like, I love how simple it is, it looks clean. I don't necessarily need my logo to be in a crest, I would just like a symbol to associate with the business. thank you.
Thanks a lot guys!
