We have an idea ourselves of the logo where "OKT" can be creatively incorporated into a kart through it's tires/chassis/steering wheel. Here you can find a quick-concept/mockup:
(note: we are aware we are no designers ourselves and this looks too amateuristic, but it gives you an idea maybe)
Please have a look at the additional samples to get an idea of the type of karts we drive and probably want to have in our logo. It's like a "competition go kart", so, NOT a "super kart"/"car-like kart" with spoilers and stuff. To get a better idea what we drive/want please google images for example "crg rotax max silhouette".
Our wishes/guidelines for the logo design:
- Logo "icon": use the kart silhouette, if possible with "OKT" incorporated in it like in our own mockup (okt-racing.com) but feel free to try alternatives without it.
- Text: "OKT" is the minimum, and should the biggest main topic of the logo and preferably incorporated into a kart as described above, and if possible also add the "racing" part of "OKT-Racing" below or next to the logo itself. If you don't like the kart or this makes it too difficult to incorporate in an elegant design, we are also open-minded for an elegant logo with the OKT text as main element. We do like the general idea of having a big "OKT" with "racing" below or next to it and an element that shouts 'karting'/'speed'/…. We tried to google image search a few inspiration logos we like, to give a better idea what we where looking for. >>>See the attachment.<<<<
- Please feel free to create a few mockup versions of different styles / fonts / color combinations, maybe even getting rid of the "okt in the kart"-idea, just to show us what is possible as alternative before we select a version to finalize.
- Modern, minimalistic, flat kind of style. No high detail gradient colored logo. It should be elegant and simple.
- The logo should be readable/recognizable from a distance, so, not too thin pencil lines.
- Colors: Orange(or yellow) + black on a white background, or white on a black background. So, the accent color should be orange/yellow, and the logo should work well both on a white background and black background (e.g. Orange+white colors on a black tshirt, or orange+black colors on a white tshirt, or instead of black maybe even navy/dark-blue which can work nicely with orange).

The first entry is a good start and I provided some feedback to the designer! Any ideas or hesitations that you might have and want to ask before making a design, let me know! We really want to push forward and select a logo to continue with. We have big plans :)
