I am a sports-obsessed developer who is looking to launch a new fantasy sports site with daily and weekly games instead of the season long leagues that are most common on ESPN and Yahoo. The site will have both leagues where the players play for money and for free. The site will begin by featuring American sports - American Football, Basketball, Baseball, and Hockey.
The site will appeal to fantasy sports fans which typically means young (18-40 year old) men. The idea is to appeal to guys that would play fantasy sports or gamble on sports, but also build a more social version than just picking players. You can join new drafts everyday and play against your friends or strangers.
I would like to have a logo that incorporates the name, "Drafter Party" and combines sports, gambling, and a party atmosphere. But I do not want it to look like a cheesy gambling site logo with cards and chips everywhere.
I am thinking about using a dark club scene as the background and would like it to maybe look like the sign of a night club or cool bar.
1. The color scheme I like the best uses purple and orange club scene, possibly with white text.
2. I want it to look like a night club logo, but be evident that it is about sports. Like a logo that a cool sports bar would use, where it has one or two sports balls (like a football and a baseball bat).
3. Other items to add into the sign could be a dollar sign or a martini glass, or something like that.
Overall, I want the look of a sophisticated sports bar. I want people to be able to tell immediately that sports and prizes, possibly gambling are all involved, but I don't want it to be too bright and gaudy like an internet casino.
