We are a balloon team flying hot-air balloons. We would like a cool industrial-lookin logo to print on jackets, shirts, hats, and pins.
A key element of hot-air balloons is the 'Burner'-- the stainless steel component that servers to ignite the propane fuel and create a large burst of flame that is shot up into the balloon.
We're looking for a steampunk or Retro-Industrial design that features a shooting stream of flame from the perspective of underneath the burner in a balloon, shooting up into the balloon.
We like the industrial art concept, and we have the word 'cog' in our name, Cognitive Fire. We'd like a cog involved in the logo-- for example, the center is the fire shooting up into the balloon, and the entire border is a cog, with the words 'Cognitive Fire' and 'Balloon Team' on the edge of the logo.
I am attaching some photos of what it looks like to have the fire shooting up into the balloon. The 'view' I envision is from underneath, looking up into the balloon.
So, key elements are-
- The silver metal Burner
- The cog
- The balloon overhead (optional)
- The words ‘Cognitive Fire’ and ‘Balloon Team’
- The angle: shot from ‘underneath’ at an angle (perhaps with burner angled from bottom pointing to top right)
Attached is a logo we like, and some design elements we like. Industrial, metal, fire, steel, steampunk!
Photos are attached to give you an idea of what the balloon burner looks like. It doesn’t have to have the balloon in the image. We’d like to see your ideas, and hope to award this contest, then order jackets for an event we have on May 27th.
