Best CrossFit Affiliate Logos

In your opinion, what are some of the best CrossFit logos out there? We're looking for a re-design, and could use some inspiration

Re: Best CrossFit Affiliate Logos

Alycia,

I don't necessarily know who I would consider the best or great. What I do think is absolutely a must is your logo to relate to your community, thus your clientele.

I love the fact that Joe Degain at I believe 810 CrossFit used the entrance gate to the city of Flynt to do his logo. When a non-client recognizes something in your logo that can be the spark that can get them interested in looking up the business.

So the logo can not only look awesome but be a lead generator! I know this cause our current logo does none of the above people are always asking me why, so we too are in the process of revamping!

Re: Best CrossFit Affiliate Logos

Here is our logo. It is a "krut" (in Thai) or a "garuda" in Indonesian. They are warriors, and also used in the military and for the royal seal. A very powerful symbol in Thailand. They have to be respected, and are a common tattoo. (We can't have one painted on our wall where people do handstands, since it would be pointing your feet at the Krut -- which in Thai culture is disrespectful.)

We had it designed like a tattoo.

We use this on our t-shirts, temporary tattoos, etc.

EVERYONE recognizes it (and some are a bit spooked by it). So get something that is meaningful and in a style that you really like.

Carpenters and web designers. They are 2 other valuable trades that SOMEONE at your box is capable of doing. You just have to motivate them/compensate them.

Re: Best CrossFit Affiliate Logos

I have owned a couple of businesses in the past and one of the things that I have learned the hard way is to make something that stands out, professional, transfers to shirts, paper, and media stuff easily. The more colors you have own it the more it costs to print. The colors that you use to are important.

If anyone is in need of a good graphic designer for any of your branding and logo needs, you can contact my father-in-law. You can check out his work at www.newmandesign.com (SFW).

Re: Best CrossFit Affiliate Logos

Your logo should apply to what we do....many do not know what CrossFit is. It should be simple and easy to understand and read. Colors are also very important. Go with the KISS method, (Keep It Simple Stupid). Mine is simple, tells what we do and is readable and stands out.

My dos centavos.

I like that KISS method. Very smart. Here is what we came up with for our new affiliate as far as logo design goes. We are working on some small alterations. Suggestions?
