Our Target Audience:
Children 6-18 interested in soccer located in Jackson County on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Looking for a professional looking soccer shield type logo that is a distinctly different style from our primary competitor- Gulf Coast United Futbol Club.
We are a family first club with more emphasis on player development and personal growth than winning. We have teams at every age and level of play.
Royal Blue, White, & Grey have been our primary colors, but we are open to a rebranding with coastal MS theme and colors.
Our Ideas and Additional Information:
Previous logos had a soccer ball caught in the surf beneath a lighthouse. The lighthouse used by our previous designer was not in Jackson County, And therefore, it created confusion among customers.
I’d like a professional soccer shield with “CSC” and “Est. 1978” somewhere-perhaps on a scroll/banner across the shield. The shield can portray a coastal scene (schooner/shrimp boat charging through the surf, rolling waves on a shore, etc) or be symbolic (quartered fields with symbols-waves, live oak, soft shell blue crab, sandhill cranes), but a soccer ball and coastal theme are key. For symbolic shields, I like Manchester City’s shield and Minnesota Football Club’s shield as references.
Maybe a shield with water/squiggly waves at the bottom third, a Magnolia blossom at the bottom, and a soccer ball like a sun over the horizon. Could have seagulls, lighthouse, live oak in the distance...
