A couple of items: 1) a classy, clean logo like the one attached; and 2) something playful like the pickle pictures. We feel the clean image will be more suitable for items that are worn - a hat or t-shirt. Whereas the more cartoony image may not be. Plus, the clean logo would lend itself to b/w if we wanted to print shirts a bit cheaper.
For the pickle, we're not looking for one with a face, but like the sunglasses. Also, the pickle could be an outline only.
In the examples below, I've used the only logo we have to refer to. We're also playing around with what will work. Example: what if we took the example logo, made the palms green and brown, logo silver with a gradient of sunset colors/or gradient with ocean colors.
It would be interesting to see something like the logo above with the center portion moved up and a pickle lying in volleyball net hammock between the trees.
Good: Modern, clean, simple, sophisticated.
Bad: campy, silly, large graphics, heavy text
Right now we are open to colors.
Good: clean, simple
Bad: Cut-throat competition type font, big bold letters, metal looking
The sketches attached were done before the name change and should be Bumpy Pickle Beach/BPB and not Royse City Beach/RCB.
