Other color requirements
I'd like to explore the following colors:
Reds: Energy, action, passion and love.
Dark neutrals: Formality, mystery, exclusivity and luxury.
Light neutrals: Purity, balance and sophistication.
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
We're looking for an old steam engine, preferably in a circle (parts can come outside the circle, doesn't need to be fully enclosed). It should have some sort of hockey elements but we do not want crossed hockey sticks. We had done a contest in the past and had seen hockey sticks as the train tracks and they looked cool. We're leaning towards more of a side angle but are also open to a train view from the front. We are not 100% committed to the logo being in a circle, so we are open to seeing other concept ideas that you may have. The colors should be red, black, white, and light gray if necessary. Some ideas include smoke coming out of the train or using a W or WE somewhere in the design. The words Walpole Express Hockey can either be included in the design or in the outside edge of the logo. We were established in 2005. We had tossed around the idea of an aggressive looking dog (a boxer breed) hanging out of the train holding a hockey stick, but are not 100% sure that the concept is doable as it may be too busy...but if you think you can pull it off, give it a try (our parent company is a hockey school--RB Hockey--and the logo is a dog as well). We are looking for a traditionally modern sports logo that can be embroidered, so gradients should be minimal if at all. I've uploaded our existing logos as well as a coin that can maybe give you some inspiration as to the direction we are going for in terms of being a circle and old time steam engine. We would like to avoid using stars in the logo again as well.
EDIT: I've uploaded a logo of a bird with a conductor hat driving a train. This is pretty close to what we were looking for except it would be a dog driving the train, and the train would be on hockey sticks for tracks.
EDIT: After seeing a few concepts using the dog on the train, our staff has decided to no longer pursue that type of design.
