Re: Crossfit logo design

How does this logo look? Honest opinion. I just did it in MS Paint.

Re: Crossfit logo design

It's a start, but it won't work at all as a finished project. MS Paint images don't scale up well at all. There are a lot of colors in the coat-of-arms, which will make it tricky and expensive to print. The way font works in front of the coat-of-arms is a bit funky - you'd be better off just to drop it, as it is redundant anyways.

The coat-of-arms is a classic design style, so I would continue to work with that idea. Get a coat-of-arms image that is a bit crisper and cleaner. Test the image by converting it to gray scale to see if you still like it. Also test it by converting it to a very small and very big images to see if you still like it.

If you get a distinctive, cool font for "Crossfit Ramrod" you'll be able to use that without the coat-of-arms when needed. So you'll end up with TWO logos - one with and one without the coat-of-arms. Try a bunch of different fonts, such as some medieval fonts in keeping with the coat-of-arms theme. A graffiti-style medieval font might be a cool update to an old style?

Re: Crossfit logo design

I am still looking for an artist to draw our logo. I have some specific ideas about what I want. Lots of realism and detail of a male physique showing muscles, facial expression, etc... The Tshirt shop and artist I had tried here couldn't get it the way I want it. Do you know any desingers/artists who routinely draw the human form? I think it is going to take someone with lots of ability and experience to get it right.

Re: Crossfit logo design

Bill -

You probably have an art instruction school somewhere near you. Perhaps consider going in there and seeing if one of the more advanced students would be willing to take on the job.

Re: Crossfit logo design

We are using forgingelitewebsites.com also and he has been wonderful to work with and gave us several choices on logo and website design. Most of all he is extremely reasonable in pricing.
