Sailing Alliance International
I am an entrepreneur and an avid sailor. I live in Australia and love to race yachts and am actively involved in sailing club and race management. I am looking at taking my experience and expertise to the next level and I'm creating a brand new education company to help others learn to sail or learn to race, as well as help sailing / yacht clubs with their education materials. I will provide trainings, multi-media courses, books, etc.
I'm looking for you to have fun and get creative with this logo design.
Sailing is a sport that fully engages the elements and sailors relate to this - just like you do as a designer when you create. It is competitive and high tech and I would like my logo to be high-tech as well so it stands out above the rest and leaves a lasting impression.
This is an education company providing a website, multi-media courses, books, trainings, tools, etc. to essentially two target markets:
Sailors - both beginners and advanced: (who want to learn to sail, learn performance sailing, racing both dinghy's and yachts.). Need to appeal to a wide age range (children through to senior adults).
Clubs/Associations/Sailing Schools: (who want products and programs to provide to their customers)
The logo needs to appeal to dinghy and yacht sailors as well as sailing / yacht clubs.
The target market is worldwide and is not geographically limited.
I'm looking for a high-tech / contemporary logo (image) with company name
I intend to fully brand all of my marketing collateral with this logo and I'm looking to build a long-term relationship with the winning designer to help me move forward with other related designs.
I am looking for an iconic image and my company name 'Sailing Alliance International' as part of the design.
The logo should include the following:
- Contemporary, high-tech, but more than just a simple shape.
- Prefer abstract image of sails/boat
- Design can show 2 or 3 sails (no less)
- I want to convey a safe, fast, modern high-tech look.
- No cartoon or outlandish 'flashy' coloring... want classy upmarket and professional look while clearly a sporting image.
- Modern/Contemporary - not too fancy
- No script or calligraphy
- Bold clear writing
- Contrasting color in font from icon for emphasis
- Deep ocean blue - this is my preferred color
- Sky blue - perhaps a secondary color or for fade
- Red or Gold (yellow-gold, not metallic gold) used for emphasis or font perhaps
It is okay to use fades or gradients
- Please do not use any clip art, stock or photography images in the logo.
- Please refrain from cartoons or animated designs, I'd like to keep it professional.
- I'd prefer not to have shadows or reflections
Good Luck! I'm looking forward to working with you!
