Sticking with my theme, my logo revolves around the world of baseball, in particular college baseball. I tried to keep the logo as simple as possible while still getting across what makes Cougar baseball different than other places.
I drew inspiration on the words at the bottom from our tutorial on the fist logo, using the rounded corner rectangle with words placed on it. I used my favorite font, Univers, for the “Cougar Baseball” portion. Univers is a strong font and the official font of the WSU Athletic Department, so I felt it fit well in my logo.
The silhouette is of a WSU baseball player, although I’ll keep the player nameless, see if anyone can guess. I blacked out the image, making it a silhouette, because I feel it makes the logo have more potential to be timeless, since no player can be easily identified the viewer can place any player they wish in that place, no matter what era it is.
Obviously the figure in my logo is baseball, words at the bottom and Bryan Tower piece at the top. I though about adding something in the background but I thought it might make the logo too busy, so I left the rest white, making a lot of ground.
I tried to balance the logo by placing the Bryan Tower portion near center, however I’m not sure I’m happy with the placement so it will probably move to off-center either left or right in the final design.
The Bryan Tower and Palouse hills portion were added to the top of the baseball because I thought it gave it a more “Pullman” or “college” feel, which was one goal of the logo. This isn’t professional baseball, college baseball is something different and I thought something to represent this town/college would be a nice addition to the logo. I feel like this potion could use the most work though and will most likely be much different in my final design.
Anyways, hope everyone likes this draft of my logo, let me know what you think!
