    Hi Footy Graphics Board,

    Long term admirer of your work here! I'm not just grovelling, but genuinely I am constantly impressed by the designs that you guys all put up on this board. It's great stuff.

    I'm wondering if anyone would like a new little challenge?
    I run a Winter Twenty20 cricket competition in QLD each year. This year I want to give the comp a bit more flare and "colour" by giving all sides a logo of some description and maybe create a bit more connection to each side.
    Would anyone like to create some logos for the 6 sides in our competition? These would be genuinely used by real teams. If anyone has any interest in creating some concepts I would be truly grateful!
    The teams in our competition are as follows:

    • RCRC Oranges (colour - Fluro Orange)
    • Gateway Gnu's (colour - Fluro Pink)
    • Victoria Point (colour - Green)
    • Bulli's XI (colour - Yellow)
    • Cleveland Saints - (colours - Green and Blue)
    • Salvos XI -

    Any ideas are welcomed. Thanks for your time guys...

    Thanks so much guys!

    The season starts 12th of May, so a deadline of 1 week before then would be a good idea I think....

    One suggestion I'd make: come up with a standard shape all the logos should be. Oval, round, shield, rhombus, whatever. As it's a small comp and all teams are having logos for the first time, give it some uniformity, I reckon it enhances the idea. :thumbsu:

    Great suggestion! At this stage I don't mind what the shape was, but uniformity does make sense...

    If we get more than one for any side I'll put them to a vote with each of the sides to decide which to go with.

    Took a stab at two of them.

    Decided on a hexagon as it's a six-team competition, plus it's something different that hasn't been done to death (ovals!).

    Also wanted the Saints logo not to look like St Kilda or New Orleans or similar. It's basic, and someone might want to do a better version.

    Really love the hexagon style and intact the two logos are quite appropriate for the sides in question. Well done! Is anyone else willing to give some of the others a go keeping the same hex design?

    First crack at a gnu. I was going for a Chicago Bulls esque front-on... does need work though.

    That (ever so slightly phallic) shape is, near as I can tell from a map, Victoria Point itself. Might benefit from some random generic cricket imagery in there.

    I think the Vic pt one works ok without any cricket influence. A nice clear logo that represents the territory, nice...

    Because we're in QLD, winter is actually the dry season so we get more games than the summer comp does

    Regarding the Salvos. They still haven't decided on colour or theme, so I'm going to pick one for them.

    How about along the Salvo theme Officers/Guards. and it's hard to go past red and white for the Salvation Army....

    Just go with red as it hasn't been used yet. No need for a second colour.

    Mr Eagle,

    I hope you don't mind. One of the Gateway players made a bit of a modification to your prototype...

    joshhem, let me see if I can find a vector version of the GNU Gnu to tidy that version up.

    The bell is OK... but a cannon or battleship would be better, as in "firing a salvo".

    Depends if the team is actually somehow connected to the Salvation Army or not.

    It could be captained by a guy called Salvatore... Salvo for short.

    Can't be. As a grammar nazi, I refuse to make a logo that is grammatically incorrect :D
