We would like to open a contest for the creation and design of a slick, contemporary, logo for our new gym business which will be Dubai's/UAE first budget gym chain.
We would like to base our logo/take inspiration from the Skins clothing equipment logo (see attached examples) and would like to follow a similar theme.
Our brand is GymNation, with a slogan "the people's gym". e would like to include the slogan in our logo in the same way Skins Clothing have included their slogan ("it's equipment, not clothing") into their logo.
We would also like to somehow incorporate the 'G' and the 'N' (or maybe just the G) into an emblem. A bit like Skins have done with their S. We have so far struggled to think of a way to incorporate both the G and the N but are open to creative suggestions. Happy to just have the G included as an emblem but would like to have something quite cool as this will be used a lot as a replacement for the full logo a lot of the time (e.g. printed onto gym equipment, clothing, etc.).
it's important the emblem is slick. We don't want anything like a cartoon, or gimmick. Important that it is cool and contemporary.
The ideas we have had so far which we would like to consider are:
(1) combine the G and N by using a lower case g and having the n formed out of the bottom half of the g (see attached shutter stock example)
(2) create a G by using the attached example of a not fully complete circle and the tick mark (see attached example).
(3) create an emblem out of the lower case g and n, as shown in the attached example.
All other creative ideas are welcome!
We like the sleekness of the Skins Clothing logo and small aspects such as how the 'K' has a section of the letter missing. We would like to follow suit, but maybe soften this slightly to make it less 'robotic'.
Our colours will be the same as skins - back, yellow and white. We would like to have two versions of the logo, one with a black background, the other with a white background, but of the purpose of the contest please can you produce the logo on a black background.
Good luck. Please feel free to contact me if you have any clarification questions.
Winning designer is likely to pick up much larger scale branding work for GymNation.
