I mentioned in the questions above that "In Extremis Performance" needs to be in the logo. "Performance" doesn't necessarily need to be in there unless it fits in well, also "IEP" could be used if that also works.
I am looking for a unique and interesting design that stands out and brings a lasting image to these operators. I would like a logo that has a tactical component but doesn't scream military/law enforcement with excessive skulls, weapons etc, but still a tactical component. As mentioned above, the latin "In Extremis" means in the extremes to the point of death, therefore it needs to be aggressive and strong. I don't know why, but I gravitate towards lightning bolt, and eagle, but I would really like you to incorporate them in your own way, or feel free to use something different. I am willing to look at another "mascot" or something creative brought in. I would like something professional looking that can easily be put on a patch worn by the operator, on a shirt, hat, etc. I say this so that there isn't super small details that wouldn't come out well if taken and put on one of these pieces of apparel.
I have some images below, that I felt were interesting, hopefully they give some insight, but I am not dead set on any of them. I am open to ideas, but I need this to have the strength to reach tactical units while also having some "depth" with professionalism and modern look. The Nike logo, I am interested in the patch on the third row, first column, a circle with eagle wings and lightning bolt. With the triangle logos, we have 3 core values and so I liked it being tied in, and I like the use of a lightning bolt with it. I would like to maybe deviate a little from the triangle and look at other creative ideas, although the triangle is a possibility. The somewhat abstract eagle may be my favorite, but again, these are just ideas, I am not sold on them.
Thank you for your time and effort, I look forward to seeing what you all come up with. Please message me if you have any questions and I can try to answer them.
