Thanks for the interest in my design contest. I'm looking for a logo for a Spikeball club to be used across the chest of team jerseys. The name of the team is "Avalon Shearwaters." Avalon is a beach town in New Jersey, and a shearwater is a medium-sized, long-winged seabird. Our team colors are light blue, navy blue, and white. Our shirts are light blue.
I am picturing two rows of text "Avalon" on top, "Shearwaters" below, and a logo of the bird. The bird could be just a head or the full body and could be positioned above or below the team name.
Please combine some element of Spikeball. Ideas include, but are not limited to, (1) a Spikeball pro ball in the talons, (2) Spikeball netting (as background or a texture across the letters), (3) borrowing a design element from Spikeball (tip: Google Image search "Spikeball pro ball"), or (4) work some aspect of Spikeball into the negative space surrounding the letters and or bird. Just a few ideas, please do not let me limit your creative process.
I look forward to reviewing your designs. Thanks!
