This logo will be used in print and online mediums.
It must also be simple enough that we can convert it into a patch for athletes to sew onto their competition clothing.
This logo is for a Fencing club. The club is introducing a series of patches to show a fencer's skill, just like there are colored belts in Karate, or badges in swimming.
The idea is fencers will earn their "Gold Excalibur", "Platinum Excalibur", etc, which is a patch with the logo you're designing.
There will be 6 "Excalibur" levels in total, White (lowest), Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Black (highest). The logo you create must be simple enough we can use it in a patch.
