For a Football Manager game we are looking for a logo. We previously held a contest on 99Designs but that didn't gave us the desired result so we had to cancel it. This contest we have raised the money amount so we hope to get more and better results.
One of the candidates from the previous contest made one logo: https://gyazo.com/5044e259ffe426e4f…e79938c883. We liked this approach alot but it was not good enough. We don't like that the ball for example is cut off in the middle, because when you put this logo on a background it looks very ugly with this cut off ball. The previous designer fixed it by adding some glow to it: https://gyazo.com/8fe13b248b9b28532…ad8001a568. However, this glow is very ugly.
We are not looking for a 3D logo or a logo with alot of effects and stuff on it, we are looking for a clean and modern logo. When you look at the logo it should immediately give the user the feeling that the game is about football/soccer.
In order to have a good logo please review our UI and main Background, the logo should match it and it should look good on the background:
