Project description

We are a sports organization dedicated to Inline Hockey based in Barcelona (Spain). For those that are not familiar with the sport, Inline Hockey is very similar to Ice Hockey but played with rollerblades. Currently we are one of the top teams in Spain, winners of the national division in the last two years. 


We are looking for a modern, clean and powerful wordmark to be used along with our current logo.

The current logo feels a little bit old in colors and shape plus given that it's quite asymmetric it's hard to use in designs for apparel, website and handouts. That's why we would like to have a combination of wordmark and logo and be able to use both together or separately.


Guidelines

In essence, we would like a wordmark design that uses and compliments our current logo. We cannot afford changing the logo since we just started using it in our new hockey jerseys.


As part of the design, some minimal changes to the logo will probably be required to be aligned in colors, style and shape with the wordmark. Please notice that the current logo contains the team name inside, that is something that maybe should be removed (this is unclear to us, we would like to see the result after removing it)


What do we expect:

  • Nice a clean wordmark that can be combined with our current logo (see examples of wordmarks in the link at the end of the description)
  • The font of the wordmark should be modern and expressive. Ideally we would be like to be able to use the name without the logo image in some occasions and people still recognize that it's our image. The new logo should transmit leadership, modernity and style.
  • In the proposal we expect to see three images: the combination of logo and wordmark, the logo alone and the wordmark alone
  • The wordmark should read "Cent Patins"
  • Change the current logo with modern colors to be aligned with the wordmark. Red, white and black are our colors and should be present. Right now we don't have exact corporative RGB colors so ideally we would get a proposal as part of the design
  • Change our current logo borders and shades to make it look more modern

We accept changes like:

  • Change in colors (red, white and black are our colors and should be present). Right now we don't have exact corporative RGB colors so ideally we would get a proposal as part of the design
  • Remove the club name from the logo 
  • Non-disruptive changes in shape (for example wrapping the logo with other shapes, changes in the borders styles of the logo, etc.)


We don't accept:

  • Changing the shape of the logo itself
  • Logos and wordmarks that do not contain white, black and red
  • Logos and wordmarks that do not contain the club name


Just FYI: our team name, Cent Patins, it's a play on words between "centipede" and "centi-skates" (which in translation would mean 100 skates).

Here are some images of our teams with the new jerseys:


In our current jerseys we have the "Spartans" word and the spartan logo. However, we would like not to have any reference to it in our new logo, either in words or in shape.

    Sir, please take a look at the hole design so you can have an idea how the logo type works as a single piece.

      Hello xPaz,

      I have to tell you that this looks really really good.
      We really like the new appearance of the logo with colors and shades.
      The font is also looking great!

      Some comments:

      1. We would like to change "Barcelona" for "Rubí" (notice the stress mark in í). We are based in Barcelona but in a small area called Rubí.

      2. There's one line in the helmet that is white. Is that correct or a mistake? Shouldn't it be yellow?

      3. The black line above the hockey stick seems not to be lineal, I'm not sure if this is an effect of the current image or there are some pixels there to fix.

      4. Could it be possible to have one image with the logo without the wordmark at the bottom, just logo?

      5. Could it be possible to get a version of the font used for "Cent Patins" in a format like TrueType or similar?

      Do you think that we could get answers about this soon?

      I would say that this is our favorite design so far, and most likely the winner!

      Good job xPaz!

  • Please check it out sir, this is the first entry from my side.
  • Good day sir,

    I saw that your design is very, but very messy. I honestly want to let you know that it takes some time to work with this kind of file (you provided). If the previous designer could do a version with a much organized work would be great. I'm messaging this because it takes a good amount of time when it comes to redesign this without changing the original one.

    I think i will provide the breakout design, but i require patience from your side and everything will be ok - this will not be a sad contest. That's a promise.

    Have a nice day and i will be back as soon as possible with a design.
    • @xPAz Hello, To be honest, I didn't know it was in this status. This design was created several years ago and I have no clue who was the designer :( Thanks for the information. Looking forward to seeing your proposal!

  • I KNOW THESE DESIGNS DOES'NT MAKE ANY SENSE BUT IF YOU LIKE IT OR YOU WANT ANY MODIFICATION , I AM READY. #48

    Hello,

    Sorry yuistina, I think I wasn't very descriptive..
    What I was proposing is to have the hockey stick somehow integrated into the name when it's displayed alone. The first thing that comes to mind is it being the underline of the name.

    What do you think?

    Thanks!
    • oops ..... now I just understand. I think ...... position and shape of the stick DON'T changed. I was wrong suppose. sorry ..... ok I will try to work again. I will try with another item in the logo to be a graphic element to the team name. thanks

    • @centpatins Hai... Hello... CP. I have sent some design ((# 28, # 31, # 32, # 36, # 40, # 41 and # 42) that if according to your criteria. I hope your advices, pelase. I am ready to really change until you are satisfied that match your criteria. best regards.

    • OOPS SORRY .... # 28 not included

  • Hello sjkelly,

    The font is looking good but the logo's shape is too different :(
    We would like not to modify the shape.

    Thanks #33
    • Hi @centpatins, thanks for the comments, please find entries #38, #39. Regards SJK

    Hello,
    Thanks for your designs yulistina! I like the changes in the border and colors in the logo.

    The problem that I see with this design is that "Cent Patins" and logo are coupled.

    We would like to see a combination of logo + team name and also logo and name separated.

    I was thinking that maybe the team name could include the hockey stick of the logo when used without the logo. What do you think?

    I also would like to see another font. Here are some examples:

    Could you please use another font a little bit more flat and minimalistic?

  • About #14, @sjkelly07
    Hello,

    This is getting close to what we would like t see. Can you give more proposals with different colors (still red, white and black) and fonts?

    Thanks!
  • FYI: We just updated the Guidelines to be a little bit more concrete.

    Thanks!
  • It looks like the shape of the logo is now different, this is not ideal. We would prefer to have the name outside the logo. As we said in the guidelines, we would like a combination of both but that can be independent as well. The text without the logo and the logo without the text. Thanks! #12
  • Hello niswah,

    This is looking good.

    If the logo coud be combined with some text with the name of the club that would be awesome.
    Also the current name within the logo would need to be removed probably.

    Thanks! #10
  • Sorry, the changes in the logo are too significant. We would prefer to have minimal changes in the logo.

    The font of the name is far from what we are looking for. We would prefer something more flatty and minimalistic.

    Thanks #9
  • Still I would prefer to not change that much the logo.

    Maybe I would prefer the logo with the name somewhere close but not covering the it.

    Can the font of the name be a little bit more flatty?

    Thanks! #8
  • Still I would prefer to not change that much the logo.

    Can the text font be a little bit more flatty and minimal.

    Maybe the logo with the name somewhere close but not covering the logo.

    By the way, the name is "HCR" instead of "HRC"

    Thanks! #6
