What We Do

We are the Austrian aerobatic team (www.austrian-aerobaticteam.at) a flying unit performing stunts and aerobatic shows. We are looking for a new Logo and emblem that we can use for our website, jackets, plane etc. (a squadron logo like here: http://images.google.at/images?sourceid=navclient&hl=de&rlz=1T4GGIH_deAT276AT276&q=squadron%20logo&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi )

Industry

Entertainment

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Speed
#2 - Crazyness
#3 - Honour

Our Target Audience:

Used for ourselfes and on stickers, etc. and visitors of our show.

Color Preferences

All colours necessary for a speedy but honourable logo (dark red, dark green etc.)

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

The Austrian national Flag has to be a nice part of the Logo/Emblem. A good addition would be the "national bird" which is the golden eagle - and/or our plane a "Pitts special S2A"

Think of it as something like a flight-squadron Logo like here: http://images.google.at/images?hl=de&safe=off&rlz=1T4GGIH_deAT276AT276&um=1&sa=1&q=squadron+logo&aq=f&oq=

Thanks for the first entries, wow that went fast!

Just as a note - you may use (we'd actually love to see it) if you use shades and gradients from the colours - also the Red colour of the austrian flag is a bit too bright on monitors and look rather cheap. Since the Logo would most often be printed on lables and used on websites/brochures etc. you may make it more with gradients and stuff - For the stiched versions we would "simplify" the logo ourself later on and make them non-gradient-colours again.

@bluejet - thanks ;) I hoped you'd like the contest.. can't wait for the tons of entries

Info about the Austrian - Bird - Logo in #9 for example - we are not allowed to use this official Logo (don't ask me why, it's a stupid austrian law) beside of that I don't like the logo to be "traditional" - we hate that old style bird actually, it remembers too much of the post-Worldwar 2 time. We prefer something really flashy, new stylish.

Also the pitts-plane is not a "must" - you may take any other aerobatic plane as well like mx2, extra 300 or similar..

Ill have a look at my logo again maybe try something different. But can I ask why say the national bird would be a good addition and then say one we cant use it anyway due to the law which is beyond control. And two you dont actualy like the bird anyway?? I think more information would've helped me not waste my time.

Maybe there is a misunderstanding. We'd like to have the national bird in the logo - in brown, gold or whatever and in a cool shape maybe like the navy pilots Badge or something. But NOT the official national austrian bird-Logo/Symbol. this one was made more than 100 years ago, it's th eoffical Logo (and ugly in my opinion) and way way way too old style too - and .. we're not allowed to use it. So we are allowed to use the bird of course, but not the official national logo of the bird.

Hello Everyone again!

we did some research on the web on logos, badges, picturers, and stuff that we "like" - this means these links contain elements in their pictures that we like, and that "might" fit into our logo. If you try to put everything together in one logo it might be too much, but we try to add a comment on every link so you have an idea of why we like that special thing.

1. http://www.usmilitarystuff.com/images/Combat%20Aircrew.jpg
this one is a nice pair of wings, the shape looks good altough we'd like to see it more "sharp" and sleek, but the "dirty" looks of it reminds of a harley davidson logo and actually that style would fit pretty good to us... we think..

2. http://store.jrdunn.com/images/ban_breitling.jpg
we like the idea of the letter inside, could be an "A" or "AAT" or maybe a plane or something?..

3. http://www.leaguelineup.com/welcome.asp?url=emeagles
gotta love the simplicity of this logo yet it still has all necessary details of the head.. lovely! We'd like to see our eagle (if there's one in the logo you create) in this style or similar. There is a similar style logo from the Philadelphia Eagles - we like that one too..

4. http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/attachments/mobile-impact/50674d1215961817-animated-car-logos-eagle.gif
Yet another eagle head. This one is probably the most simpliest, we do like the previous before better..

5. http://www.littleeaglepreschool.com/images/little_eagle_logo_bg_color.jpg
The idea to have stars or other elemtns around is good

6. http://www.oldtimerflugtagekestenholz.ch/uploads/pics/Buecker_Squadron_Logo.jpg
this one reminds me of what you guys already submitted but it has more detail in it if you take a look. There are squares etc. (instead of stars for example) that just give the Logo a more professoinal, honourable look, altough, this logo in particular would also still be too "simple" - look further down for what we're looking for

7. http://www.cksinfo.com/clipart/military/shieldsandbadges/20th-Security-Forces-Squadron-Logo-_Color_.png
Here's an example of what we DO NOT LIKE - this logo - as in shape and elemtns does look good, but way too cheap. The colours look cheap and there are no detailed elements like stars, anchors (just as example) like in the navy logo or elsewhere. We do realized that we love blue backgrounds by the way...

8. http://www.cksinfo.com/clipart/military/shieldsandbadges/AF-Medical-Service-seal.png
Here's an example of a perfect simple logo that yet shows a lot of "luxury" if you want with the blue background, the eagle in brown, etc.. we like that style

9. http://74.86.249.151/assets/images/US_Air_Force_Logo.gif
Here's another perfect example of how simple lines gave this perfect logo - lovely

and of course our favourite logo..

10. http://www.post21.org/website/images/navylogo.jpg

Stands for pride, and everything associated with it.. great logo, looks great as a badge, looks awesome..


ok, I hope this helped a little - and hopefully didn't confuse anybody. It's tough I guess because it's not like a real company logo what you guys have to design, I still hope you'll make up a great design and please don't forget - the elements we said before like: the national bird, that plane, etc. they do not "have" to be in the logo. If you think you have a better idea or something totally different please feel free to try.

greetings from Vienna, Austria to all!
