I need Graphic Design

Contest Brief

I need a logo designed for Switchback Motorsports. We'll be selling recreational vehicles (snow machines, motorbikes, side by sides, atv's etc.) parts & accesories and riding apparel. When I hear "Switchback" I see a trail zigzagging up a mountain in my mind. One idea would be a very simple outline of a mountain or mountain range with the letter "S" in the word Switchback creating a simple switchback trail on the mountain. That may give you a place to start but I'm open to all ideas. I do like more of an abstract style but again I'm open to ideas. I don't think that I'm looking for anything that has alot of different colors or textures because its hard to stitch onto shirts, coats and hats. I would like a logo that we could make a clothing line brand with if possible. I would like it catchy enough that people would want to put white vinyl cutouts in the back windows of there trucks. Hope that helps. Thank you!

    Hello there Contest Holder, how are you? Anyway, I have checked all your comments here below and from it I got an idea on how I think your logo should look like. As you said you are open to any ideas so I decided to join. You want something abstract, could be use as emblem and will look elegant on car decals, and here it is. Hope you drop by and check my entry #234 and #233. Thank you! If you got something in mind and more suggestion, please feel free to send me a message. Thank you and more power to your business.

    I like the concept of your latest posts but they are a bit boring. They need to be spiced up a bit. Triangle concept, font etc. Good luck!

    People have asked if I could post some general logos that have caught my eye while browsing the web. These are just things that jumped out at me. As you look at these and have read my description and additional notes I've posted on the public clarification board) it may give you some ideas on a design. You should be able to view these if you copy and paste the links into your browser. Hope that helps :)

    What if we were to have the "S" in SWITCHBACK look like a cool switchback trail that comes down lower than on the page than the rest of the words and then have the letter "A" in the word SWITCHBACK be a simple solid mountain with the same Switchback pattern we used for the "S" be used as a cutout inside the solid A? Just and idea to get you thinking. Hope it helps. Put your own creative spin on it if you think it might work.

      You might bring the bottom of the "A" (also doubling as a mountain) down lower as well to give you more room to work with. These are just ideas to get you thinking. This idea may suck when it's drawn out but it may give you some other ideas that might work.

    To sum it up Professional looking but fun. Easily read wording. Hip, cool, stylish (create that "I want to wear that" feeling). Memorable emblem that creates a feeling of I want to go rip it up on my machine! Hope that helps and thanks for all the entries.

    Some more thoughts for everyone. I would like the word "SWITCHBACK" to be bold easily read and somewhat professional but I would like the emblem to do a couple of things. First of all I would like it to create a feeling in people to make them feel like they want to go out and rip up the side of a mountain on there dirtbike, snow machine, 4 wheeler etc. I also want it to be hip and cool. If we were to put it on a tee shirt or hat, people would want to buy it just because they think it would look cool on them. It also has to be easily stitched (no fading colors and not to much detail within the logo). To sum it up

    Something else to think about is that I kind of like the idea of an emblem within the logo. In time as the name Switchback Motorsports becomes more recognized we could remove the words and have the emblem stand on its own and be recognized. Keep that in mind in your design. If the emblem doesn't look good on it's own and can't cant be recognized as it's own brand without the words Switchback Motorsports you may consider playing with it a bit.
