This logo is for an internet based fantasy football website. The site is launching publicly next year. We have a great team and sufficient funding to make it work. Our goal is to project an intelligent, high end image that distinguishes us from the many amateur and homemade fantasy football websites. The website design will ultimately be relatively simple and modern in its appearance.
We think our logo is very important and are open to any and all suggestions, regardless of what is said here. We want something users will recognize and remember. However, our initial preference is for a play on a football receiving "routetree" image (see attached examples), along with our name (either separable or maybe integrated). We think that there are some very good design possibilities based on the football routetree--please take a look at the sample images we uploaded. That being said, we are not artists or designers, and are open to your suggestions. While we think the routetree theme could ultimately win out, we have no preconceptions and want to see attempts at different types of logos.
For our tastes, clean and modern is probably better (think Google), but not necessarily--we are open minded and so a memorable complex logo might win. Don't rely too much on the example logos we picked from this site. They are more to our instinctive tastes, but are just what we somewhat liked from a very quick review of the limited stock examples that 99designs.com offered.
This logo is going to be the first step in our design of the website. Thanks in advance for your effort and submissions. We look forward to working with you.
