Bear with me for a minute as I describe what we’re going for - designer to designer, I know this may seem ridiculous... but it will be a fun project.
Our team name is Formula Acorn Racing Team, or F.A.R.T. for short.
Again I know, juvenile. But hey, we’re here to have fun.
We want a logo that looks like the Ferrari logo, using an acorn silhouette as the crest/badge outline shape. Within the acorn, we need a flying duck (instead of a prancing horse like Ferrari). This duck needs to be mid flight, wings open, feet out. See attached PDF for the pose. Same style as the horse (two tone).
There’s some creative wiggle room here, but it needs to look classic. We like both the Red Bull logo and the Ferrari logo, look at their formula 1 teams for inspiration.
Note how the Ferrari logo incorporates S and F in the crest. We could have F A R T in the crest... and “Formula Acorn” (outside the crest) above and “Racing Team” below in classic text. Also note that the Red Bull logo has a Bull in the middle of RED BULL, which is nice but Ferrari seems more classic. Likely a Ferrari-esque logo will win, but...
.... we want you to have fun with this! It needs to feel like a racing team car brand with a duck and an acorn. That's it. We’re having fun, so you should too 😂
Colors can be anything, but we like red, blue, black, and white. If you’re going simple palette, please go red, black, white.

Awhile ago on a biking road trip, a duck pooped on my cofounder. It was a hilarious and defining moment of this whole brand concept. If you can incorporate the duck silhouette pooping in some way, we would seriously love it. However, I respect you as artists and I totally understand if doesn’t sound like your cup of tea. Just keep in mind this will bring a ton of joy to us, our future teammates, and other racers who will be competing against us 30 something dudes :)
Good luck designers!
