We are looking for a logo design that is both classic & vintage in style, but branded as modern and sleek at the same time.
I'd most like to see some options that have an appeal like an MLB or NFL logo or even a team logo would have, synonymous with the modern sports fan - but I'd also love to see some retro logo style options, since I am drawn to what I see when I google retro logos as well.
Please don't feel married to a circular logo, we want to see squares, rectangles and shapes like the NFL league logo too!
If there is a way to combine the two into one logo, that'd be great. Also most logos involving anything poker related come out looking very cheesy, with chips etc, so don't think it needs to have that. I could see an cartoonish old school dealer with a visor become one option, but more than anything it needs to feel like it appeals to the cool millennial market and has a hipster/sporty vibe. Think retro/saloon poker meets ESPN’s 30 For 30. Something clean, simple, timeless, & bold with that retro feel. Below are some original ideas we had to either incorporate the ideas of a digital clock (that resembles a shot clock) and we do like that as an option if a good designer made it appear more like a digital shot clock.We also have one retro style logo but it doesnt incorporate the sports or hipster feel enough, and moreso resembles a beer logo we think.
Logos that have a sports league feel like this are what we are in the market for:
