T-Shirt Logo Design Brief:
The design is for a bar poker league T-shirt.
We are looking for something with an MMA design feel, but are not looking for any violent imagery, more stylized poker imagery done with a the same dynamic style as MMA shirts. Most MMA shists seem to only use two colours – and sometimes only one – but are very effective.
Style – our desire to create a new shirt design stems from an interest in keeping the organization fresh, cool and vibrant for our Members. Designs should take these into consideration. The winning designer may have additional work from us – if we see the designs as having the potential to be effectively integrated into our program (posters, website graphics, banner ads …) as a way to refresh our program.
Logo – Our brand is Red Hot Poker Tour and our logo design is well-established. We want our brand/logo to be integrated and do not want any liberties taken with the fundamental design (redesigns of our logo will be rejected). Our base colors are Red, Black, Grey and White. As you will see with the logo, the .com is integrated which we want to use if possible – if it compromises the look of the design we can live without it.
We would like our sponsors’ logo integrated with the design but it should not compromise the integrity of their logo or limit its readability. The sponsor logo over the left chest area would traditionally be the best positioning, but will leave that to your design preference. The sponsor logo is not the same color scheme as our logo, so to avoid color conflict their logo would only be printed in white on the black t-shirt.
Current T-Shirts we award to Members are two colors and use the shirt color as the third color.
