This is a rebrand. Our current set up can be found here.
Our current logo has done well for us but its pretty difficult to print. It's tightly knit to a baseball, does not work well in a square and you can't draw it or recognize a symbol from it. We would love if there was some sort of 'symbol' or anything that could be instantly recognizable as MSM (see note below)
We are franchising out to 100's of locations in the next 3 years and want the main logo to be a little more convertible. If you go to the following site you can see how they can incorporate their logo into multiple events. They also have a smaller BY representation as well.
We are looking to do that with MSM. We would love if we could also get this MSM logo as well (subset of the main). So maybe this is a MSM with Middle School Matchup tag line?
Having a baseball in the logo is fine, as long as its done in a way we could easily remove it and/or replace it with a softball or a football for instance.
1. MSM should be the focal, and it should be part of a logo...but the MSM should be able to stand out and be reconizable as our brand on it's own. For example, if it was just one a cap...with no tagline. It should be memorable.
2. The logo should not be dependant on a baseball. Although we do like to see a baseball, it should be flexible enough that we can live without it or replaces it with any sport/symbol
New note: a lot of the recent designs that are coming in all have this 'futureistic' super sports, video game feel. We still like to keep a bit of 'classic baseball' too.
We print on a ton of garments, caps, bags as well.
People should think fun, nostalgia, action...when seeing the logo
