PracticeSports concept on white BG.WIP>>
Work in progress
nice one mike.. it has a unique character in it..
Love it, Mike.. Especially, the Basketballs giving rise to the Rugby ball.. clever! :D
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.
%5E ha I don't see that but ANY sport you see is another bonus :)
LOL @ Anthony...dude I used to tear it up at some teatherball. Thanks for the memory.
this is neat.
This is insane, it just works on so many levels. A simple color change could cover all sports...softball...teeball etc...damn!
Thanks Lumo.*LOL! Fabian, your just too nice :) Thanks.*
I LOVE the fact that the shadow is not directly underneath! great.
whoa...nice mike, very smart thinking
What they said %5E, but what's with the shadow?
thanks Alexander.*Thanks raja,nice to hear coming from one of the worlds best designers.*@alex, well, the shadow knows :)
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.
yea but will it work on a DVD spine?
with the shadow? humm.... I'm not sure.
this is great.
Nice Balls Mate
%5EHayes:)*Thanks Yelds.*Cerise, WOW that feels good to hear Mate. :)
Perhaps the shadow should be directly under the 'balls' instead of to one side?
Light here *** shadow here _* **********
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.
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 Guys, working on some more..
holy bajesus... great! Nice job Mike.
Thanks Steve.*Justin, a subliminal meaning I worked into design,.. get out your credit card and make a purchase :))
Love your work as always :)
Awesome Mike, love it!!
What else can I say about this one Mike, all has been said, so, all I can say is GREAT!!
you hit this one, out of the park, over the fence, through the net, and goooaall!! nice one mike.
Thanks for your comments Guys, it's a contender. WIP..
great mark mike, not gone on the logotype, but thats just me, color contrasts are are great too.
you are the best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Paul and Ruben.
Very nice and effective mark Mike. It would work miracles if this company gets Master Card's sponser... lol. :) Cheers
Thanks guys, we have a really tough business ya know...
oh yea! loving this
Can't believe this didn't get chosen Mike, their loss.
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.
%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 :)
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.
This is simply fantastic, great work!!!!
this makes me wonna do sports. Loving those balls!
very clever! :D
oh man ... what more can I say ... agree with all of my fellow logopontys !!!
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
Great work mate!
wow, thanks guys. Looks like this one was the preferred version.
Superdooperly good! Great work Mike.
Really nice. I would like to talk more with you.*Is it possible?
Man, look at all these comments!
Well done Mike.
genius mike. Wish I had thought of it. Gonna steal your brain and run like the wind.
Cheers Guys! I get to keep this one. Client went my other route.*Tabitha, Ok by I'm running with ya :)
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.
LOL Atomic :)**Terrific!
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!
Cheers all. It worked out for client anyhow. Client went with another I designed, plus I sold this one :)))
