Industry

Sport

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Patriotism - the red, white and blue
#2 - Soccer
#3 - Excitement and Fun

Our Target Audience:

Kids (players age 8-18) and the parents. We draw approximately 30,000 people (500-600 teams) and mainly use the logo for merchandise.

Color Preferences

We have historically used the red, white and blue of the American flag. I would like to incorporate it, but add an accent color

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

Here is a link to a slideshow of our historical logos: http://www.slide.com/r/VCCtj7T43z_MM3Hes3qrHv2oYALt20CD?previous_view=lt_embedded_url

As you can see, not too great. We need a professional logo and our sales have increased the last few years with those. I know they are not the greatest, but we know our sales will go up with something more "professional" looking.

Elements to use: You can use a soccer ball or cup (trophy), but emphasize a modern (even abstract) look.

#2

I like the idea, but the font is an issue - it looks hand made and/or needs to be cleaned up.

I like the "blue" used in #3 and #5. Probably because I'm tired of the "true blue" or royal. It's a nice change. I really like where #5 is going. Very modern and it can be fitted nicely on hats as well as t-shirts.

Hi everyone,

I just want to thank you all for the work you are doing on this. I love this site!!! The bad news is that I can only pick one. The good news is that I plan to do this every year so please keep your files saved.

Just some food for thought - stay with a more modern look like #5 and #7 and away from the "badge" or "crest" look which tends to be more traditional. Our main audience are the kids but the logo should also be something that the parents would like.

I hope my comments help you. I think you all are very talented. On a side note, I'm leaving town for the next few days and will check back on Sunday night. Great work - love it!

Take care and have a good weekend!

Thank you to everyone for their submissions. I would have loved to give you more feedback but I stayed away from that due to the fact that we have a Tournament Committee and everyone had their different opinions.

We will be meeting on this in the next few days and will post the winner. I personally could pick 20-30 that would be perfect. Thank you again for all of your hard work.

Take care,

Hi all,

Thank you all for your submissions last year for the Canton Cup. Just to let you know, we are running it again right now: http://logotournament.com/contests/canton_cup_2010

I hope you submit this year ..even if you just update last years. We had so many excellent ones to choose from (unfortunately we only can pick one).
