Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - We manufacture top quality / strong wood baseball bats
#2 - We are based right outside the Washington, DC area
#3 - Our products are individually handcrafted, and the logo is our brand

Our Target Audience:

Our target audience is approximately 15 - 35 year old athletic males in the United States. Buyers will most likely be mid-upper class, and encompassing high school / college student-athletes all the way up to professional ballplayers. Looking for a sleek design (not overly intricate) which will transfer smoothly to our wood bat manufacturing process which can sometimes lack finer details. For your reference, our in-progress website can be seen here: http://www.beltwaybats.com/. Thinking we would like a loose affiliation within the logo associating our company to the DC area, however avoiding the obvious. (NO Interstate sign outline, NO White House, NO Presidential Seal) Open to ideas like, 3 stars from DC flag, Capitol Building Dome if done right etc.

Color Preferences

Open to all shades of Red, Black, White, and Blue. Please no other colors aside from those.

Would like a bit more focus on the 'B' in Beltway Bat Co. logo, I have gone ahead and uploaded a small hand sketched image of something that may help guide everyone's efforts moving forward but is certainly not a design I am decided on, just providing more insight as to what I may be looking for. Thanks!

Hello! Here are some hints for getting the most out of your contest as it progresses:

~~ You, the Client, are very important! Your active participation is the single greatest factor influencing this contest. Active participation by you, the Client, helps you get the logo design you want!
~~ What's active participation? It's updating the brief with more information for Designers to work with as the contest progresses, providing feedback to Designers on their entries when they're submitted, and ranking designs at least once a day.
~~ When you provide feedback to Designers, you increase the chances of getting the logo you want. More feedback = better results!
~~ Leave private feedback by clicking on a design. Feedback will be made public upon contest completion.
~~ Rank designs at least once each day -- this will encourage Designers to submit more entries!
~~ Ranking prevents your contest from going idle! Active contests attract more Designers.
~~ Ranking gets your contest noticed. Unless your contest is Private, 1st place entries are posted to the portfolio page: http://logotournament.com/portfolio
~~ Please note: if you're asking for a design that will require several hours to create, to attract Designers willing to invest that amount of time the prize should be at least $400-$500. All "Character" style logos fall into this category.
~~ Designers are not offended by "Not Interested." We'd like to know what you don't want so we can give you the design you do want.
~~ The first phase of the contest is the "Open" phase, and everyone can submit during that time.
~~ After your contest's initial "Open" phase closes, it will enter the "Top 5" phase; only the top 5 ranked Designers will be able to submit revisions at that time.
~~ The "Top 5" Designers are the first 5 Designers in a contest, not the first 5 designs.
~~ When "Top 5" ends, the "Judging" phase begins. The Designer of the 1st place design will be the only Designer who can submit revisions at that time.
