Discussion in 'Free Logos' started by shearne, Jul 12, 2014.

    1) What is the exact name you would like in your logo?
    "Bun Machan" and the founding year 1963

    2) What is your website address (ex: http:/site .com/; Site Name)?
    Website not created yet but background will be green (club colours are green and yellow)

    3) Description of your website or business:
    Amateur football club

    4) Search the Internet for any logos/designs on the web that you feel convey
    the style you are looking for?

    Logo will be on Green Background

    Looking to Update or Replace the current logo:

    1) Update Current (extremely amateur) Logo

    Building on logo is this building:
    Hyphen between Bun and Machan not required (does not need to be all caps but can be) and only 1963 required (GAA est text not needed)
    As the logo will be placed on a green background, I think the outer circle would look good coloured yellow

    2) Replace Logo

    Something like (layout wise) with similar fonts:
    where the logo is 2 compartments with the building above in the upper part and a mining cart in the lower panel

    5) Requested size of your logo:
    The logo is to be used both on Website and printed on Shirts

    6) Do you have any images/photos that can be used for the logo? (must be copyright free)

    7) What logo styles do you like (text only, image only, text and image, etc.)?
    Text & Image.

    8) What colors do you want to see in your logo?
    Green, Yellow, White, Black and maybe grey for building, e.g.:

    9) What colors do you NOT want to see in your logo?

    10) Describe the target audience for your logo
    Club Members

    11) What are the top 3 things you would like to communicate through your logo?

    12) Where will your logo be used (print, website, etc.)?
    Website, placed on shirt, poster

    13) Do you have other info or links you want to share?
    Please feel free to comment on anything else that you would like your logo to have if it has
    not been mentioned above.

    14) Finally we need is there a style font you prefer, please let us know.

    Thank you very much Ishkey. Very nice crest. One comment I might make is that 2 shades of green might not work well if it was embroidered?

    it would stand to reason then you specify the exact colors required.
    maybe contact the company whom is to perform the embroidery an acquire the specifications and ask them to provide you with the Pantone color which corresponds to the thread color.

    Hi @ishkey,

    There are not any plans to get new club kit this year. The crest would be mainly for the website and posters in the short term and new kit in the longer term. Thanks for your help.

    Hi Rico,

    They look great. I really like how you represented the building.

    Would you be able to change the first (A) crest to use a lighter green (like the green in the crest shown in point 8) of the original post or the green in this crest: http://www.kerrygaa.ie/)?

    @shearne, please find the revised (A) crest using the lighter green (shown in point8). Cheers

    I thought I had replied here last weekend but post doesn't seem to have posted.

    Thanks for everyone's help. Have to wait until the clubs next meeting to choose a logo. Will let you know.

    Hi All,

    Very sorry for the long delay. It was the off season and players and committee have only come together recently to prepare for the new season.

    @Sean, The club have picked 2 of your crests (#4 (church and cart) and #8 (church and cart) on your post)

    Could the year be changed to 1964 and could they be surrounded by a black line as crest may appear on yellow or green background?

    Thanks everyone for your help.
