    Hi Guys, (CP;))

    Very sorry, without knowing the rules I posted in another members thread. Apologies, can anyone help me?

    I stumbled on this while hopelessly googling for help with my football team and would love, love, love some assistance. I have a technological IQ of 60, so I don't have the skill to create something fun that my team mates would love. As a reward, I can offer; Beers, or any promotion assistance I can give. (5aside.org) ALso, I am 100% using this design, and I promise I will put a team photo online which you could use, if you want?

    1) What is the exact name you would like in your logo?
    Nothing in Common

    2) What is your website address (ex: http:/site .com/; Site Name)?

    3) Description of your website or business:
    7 a side football club (but we are moving into outdoor this year)

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

    I am an Australian, and have made so many great mates on this team, all Irish and English.. I want to create a logo, that encompasses our three nationalities in the same logo. I was thinking of a 'classic' style badge, that has our three flags on three different panels. (English, Irish, Australian) The Australian would probably need more room, as it isn't as simple (symetrical) as the other two. (See below)

    We are a group of mates, so I was also thinking of having some funny, iconic images of our nationalities. Drunk fighting leprehaun, boxing kangaroo, english lion. This might be too hard, so anything that you could do would be amazing!

    5) Requested size of your logo:

    It will be printed on our shirts, on our left breast area. This will be our jersey, so maybe something that fits inbetween the white big V?

    I guess the best resolution possible for that size?

    6) Do you have any images/photos that can be used for the logo? (must be copyright free)
    Copyright free will be our biggest issue.. I'm not creative enough to come up with something great, so perhaps I'll have to focus on flags?

    7) What logo styles do you like (text only, image only, text and image, etc.)?
    Text and Image is perfect for us. Perhaps an 'est. 2010' could be cool. But otherwise just our name, which is Nothing in Common

    8) What colors do you want to see in your logo?

    We will hopefully be using multi colours. (flags of those countries). Our strip is royal blue, with a white V. So maybe a royal blue outline? really, you probably have noticed by now, but I have no idea?!?!

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

    10) Describe the target audience for your logo
    Something that is funny would be ideal! Otherwise, anything that my team would like. They're all really cool guys, and I want to rememeber this team for ever.

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

    That we are cool, and we don't take ourselves too seriously. Nothing that is on this logo will offend.

    12) Where will your logo be used (print, website, etc.)?
    I would like to have the option of using this logo in the future, but for the moment it is for our team badge, on our left breast.

    13) Do you have other info or links you want to share?

    14) Finally we need is there a style font you prefer, please let us know.
    Nothing, you guys are the experts!

    I'm not sure if you know how much I would appreciate this if you do it! Name what you want, and I'll get it done. Donate blood? consider it done!

    Hey Mickeybee

    Thank you for posting correctly this time :p I deleted your other post that you made on another members thread.

    In the meantime while you are waiting for your request to be completed then feel free to look around the forum and help out wherever you can (Website reviews is a good place - you can do that here) as mentioned in the sticky post and also as a way of giving back to the help that you are receiving.

    Thanks mate!

    Sorry about that! I'll be checking this a fair bit, so if there are any questions I'd love to answer.

    I'm sure I'm missing something, but I just want something fun, clean and cool.

    Thanks GG!

    Red, blue, white, orange and green, with a possible dark delineating line colour (black?)
    Ouch, that's gonna bite into the budget when it comes round to printing/embroidering time.
    Flags are no problem, except for the extra colours. Characters ie;leprehaun etc., would be difficult as illustrators are not happy about giving them away for nothing. ;)
    Might have to think a while on this one. Perhaps someone else out there may have an idea?

    In the meantime, keep on helping out around the forum Mickey. I'm sure we'll come up with something to suit.

    Btw, have you defected back to the 'old country' for good or just holidaying?

    Hi mate,

    No, I'll go home one day, although it is fun here. Being able to travel really easily, makes me miss my family and mates slightly less. I've been here 2 years and 3 days, so maybe another year or so.

    As for the top, yeah, we got a full colour logo which is unlimited. I think the flags would be really cool.

    No idea about how to create something fun Ie leprechaun, kangaroo, lion. I figured it would be too hard. Thanks again guys!

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for the comments so far.. Someone whipped up the following for us over the weekend, what do you guys think?

    I still want our team name, 'Nothing in Common' integrated in the badge somehow. And i'd still be interested to see what it looks like to have our three flags (English, Irish, Australia) on the badge.

    What do you guys think?

    Hey CP,

    Any chance you want to have a crack at the flag idea?

    I really want to get this printed in the next few days, so just wondering if it would be possible?

    Promise I'll hang around here anyway! ;-)

    Here's with the 'flags'.
    Using other images (most of what you've shown above) could end up being a copyright nightmare.
    Also shown with what it would look like on the shirt.

    This is fantastic! Thank you so much!!

    Yeah, I agree that those images could cause problems for designers. I wouldn't mind rocking around with stolen images, but it would be an issue for you guys I'd assume.

    I think I'd get that 'flag' badge printed a little higher, and make to fit into the white 'V'. I assume this would be possible to do with this image?

    Thanks again mate, I absolutely love it. I'll submit a photo of our team as soon as it is printed.

    Yep, you got that right!!

    Anyhow, glad you're happy with it. :)
    The placement on the shirt was just for display, you can put it where ever you think appropriate.

    Attached is a zip of the file in 2 sized PNG's.
    Let me know when you have the file downloaded so I can remove it from the forum.

    Thanks CP,

    I have downloaded the images, and I am so pleased with them.

    You're a legend.

    Thanks again,
