Martial Arts on Rails
designed by keyla
Martial Arts on Rails is an online software service for managing gyms and martial arts schools. We are looking to add a logo that conveys our current branding to the website and our marketing materials.
It's not necessary to use the full business name in the logo, but the logo should have a graphic which can stand alone and is roughly square in proportions, and should work when side by side with the full business name.
The origins of the name is to convey that we provide a set of rails / framework for managing gym operations using our service. The inspiration for name came from the popular web framework "Ruby-on-Rails", but we don't actually use Ruby-on-Rails so please avoid any references to it in the logo.
Please go over the site to see how our current branding and overall visual language looks like. You can use any element from the site in the logo, if you find it useful.
EDIT: Seems like a few of the initial designs use the generic stick figure symbol for sports (used in the olympics and elsewhere), we'd prefer not to have it in the logo, as this service is a management platform for gym manager and owners, rather than a service for the athletes themselves. It is not a good fit for the athlete stick figure in our opinion.
Some logo styles we like and fit our requirements:

EDIT #2: As the contest is winding down, we have a few designs that we like, but most of those are very similar visually. To see the designs that are in the running, filter the ranking to be anything above 0. We liked designs that had an "app" or software like element to it, while combining our initials and / or a simple martial art element, such as a ranked belt. If you still want to submit, some things to avoid - no silhouettes or stick figures (we're not a product for the athletes themselves), no overly aggressive symbols (such as fists), no overly detailed shapes (see our favorite logo styles), no unusual typefaces (like orient-style fonts, or fonts that look completely different than what we have on the site).
Would be nice to see some designs that look different than what we already have.
