Thanks SBJ and Saawan, hopefully enough to convey the overall theme of sports. I tried adding the human aspect into the mark but not sure it comes out at all. More abstract design here.I'm hoping some see tennis balls and volleyballs, and soccer/futbols too. The overlapping lines convey the netting,baskets,batting cages etc. that the Co. offfers.

thanks Alexander.*Thanks raja,nice to hear coming from one of the worlds best designers.*@alex, well, the shadow knows :)

JoePrince Jul. 05 '10

Really nice concept, Mike. I understand what you are doing with the the placement of the shadow, but I feel it's distracting and taking away from the beauty of the mark. Very clever as usual though.

Thanks graviart.*thanks Joe, yeah, I know, been there, done that that. But just experimenting. The Audience is not always, in fact hardly ever designers. Maybe it's not needed, I know these things but just getting a feel as it it is a WIP. Thanks for your comments,.. it helps.

Perhaps the shadow should be directly under the 'balls' instead of to one side?

Light here *** shadow here _* **********

epsilon Jul. 05 '10

Your shadow looks smaller than the object, which is physically impossible if there's just one light source. **However if you are to claim the object is on, say, hmm... I don't know... a sports arena, perhaps, with multiple light sources, then the shadow _can_ actually be smaller than the object. **... and now all you have to say is %22that was exactly the idea%22 :-)

mark n type look great. good job on this. Shadow doesn't really effect the mark any.

alterego Jul. 05 '10

i love this mark ....but i have some doubts on the type ...i feel the typography doesn't give the feel of multi sports....

Thanks Tomme.*Thanks Joe, yeah but understand we see things differently than the average viewer and appreciate what goes into it. They don't always see things the same way.

JoePrince Sep. 04 '10

%5EIsn't there some leeway in your influence as the designer though? I mean, you're not supposed to be a salesman but you can still push hard for a concept to the client. Knowing you I'm sure you did :)

Reply
logomotive Sep. 04 '10

Of Course. I have many clients that give me full lead and respect my opinion(%22Your the expert%22). On the other side, it can also be viewed as arrogance or trying to push a design. there's always a good alternate solution however.

oh man ... what more can I say ... agree with all of my fellow logopontys !!!

Reply
dean_brown Nov. 17 '11

I think i agree with the shadow could be under, the light could be directly above and would fit. Then again thats nit picking and personal opinion overall its a great logo, very impressive

Atomicvibe Nov. 19 '11

Nice balls, Mike! You probably hear that all the time.** I'm definitely seeing a tennis ball, basketball, and American football, but none of the other stuff you pointed out allllllllllllllll the way up there %5E. I guess with additional colors, maybe different balls could be revealed, though. At any rate, I think this is TURBO-clever%3B too bad your client didn't go for it.

pjmaster Nov. 21 '11

LOL Atomic :)**Terrific!

cassano Mar. 02 '12

It's awesome.*But the shadow is a little strange. I understood that the light is diagonal, but the brightness of it is not so clear to most people understand the reason for the shadow to be displaced. Perhaps increasing the brightness, or aligning the shadow in the middle would be better. Or even leave without a shadow. However, it was very cool!

LOGOMOTIVE Mar. 14 '12

Cheers all. It worked out for client anyhow. Client went with another I designed, plus I sold this one :)))
