Hi Im so excited about this thank you so much for participating in this contest and helping me make this dream come true!! Here's some info about my business that I thought might help bring this contest to life for you!
Name Background: when you see someone very successful at what they do or generally succeeding most people just assume that person is just very fortunate and what they dont see is the work ethic, discipline, failures, relentlessness to find a solution in the face of those failures, and hardship that forged that fortune. The culture my facility provides teaches people that the work they produce is where their confidence comes from and their success is just a byproduct of that.
Representational Quotes: 2 quotes from Man in the Arena, by T.Roosevelt. (It was actually part of a much longer speech on democracy delivered to france.)
"It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly; who errs,
who comes short again and again,
because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;
but who does actually strive to do the deeds;
who knows great enthusiasms,
the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who at the worst,
if he fails,
at least fails while daring greatly,
so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
" I believe in exercise for the body, always provided that we keep in mind that physical development is a means and not an end."
...the second quote is to keep all the egos in my industry in check :)
Facility Description: I have a 10k sqft facility thats all concrete block and exposed wooden trusses . I have top of the line D1/Pro Level equipment from around the world each piece was specifically handpicked and most I've been collecting for years (Ive waited a loooong time to make this happen :)) to add to the culture. So its an awesome mix of classic old school and the highest tech of new school.
Slogan: Commas, capitols...i just wrote it like that but whatever you think looks best!
Colors: All of my equipment and paint scheme for the gym are a bold red, light and dark greys, black and white. It would only let me choose 3 color families but I'm also interested in maybe you guys playing with blue as well. Seeing some with and some without would be awesome whatever feels good to you!
Industry: Even though I'm a strength and conditioning coach my facility is really a culture and a family... a team even. I noticed style differences between the physical fitness category and the Sport category and I leaned twd the design contests in sport but I have an open mind if you're feeling something in particular!
Imagery: I love the imagery of the wheel from the wheel of fortune from the Tarot Deck. I chose a bunch of different images representing it that i dig aspects of so you can find one that might speak to you. If you can incorporate that it would be awesome... if you have some badass ideas I'm open!!
Finally thank you so much for bearing with me through all that. Its been important to me that this dream means something to you. I want this to be the kind of place you would want to and be proud to belong to! I have a heap of t-shirt designs and product marketing to do in the future and I loved the feature here that I can stay connected with the artists to create more in the future if you dig my concept welcome to the Fortune Family!! :)
