Heming is the largest athlete club in Norway, and has probably the largest alpine ski club in the world.
When the alpine ski kids turn nine years old, they are divided into two groups: A) One group continues skiing as a hobby just for fun, while B) the other group start racing.
The race group picks a name, and creates a figure/masco/logo that will be printed or sewn on their race suit and other clothes, stickers etc.
Now it's the 2005 race team's turn, and they have chosen "Heming Gangsters" as their team name.
They need a figure which is playful, but serious and tough. Gangster vs agressive downhill skiing. They are going to steal the trophies around. They are eight years old now, but this figure/logo will follow them for many years. It should not be childish after a while, and they have to be proud of it, and think it's thougher than all their rival club's mascots/logos. It will be used in addition to the main Heming logo (http://heming.no/fileadmin/Heming/D…202012.pdf). It must be able to use it as a stand-alone logo, not be too complex, but simple/easy to sew and print (and maybe draw), with clear colors and borders.
<p style="font-style: normal;">The main Heming logo cannot be touched. And I don't think we are allowed to use the name/word "Heming". But please try to include th word "Gangster", or just a cool/tough character/mascot/logo.
<p style="font-style: normal;">It doesn't have to look like a skier or include ski in the illustration, but if it does, it must be ALPINE SKIING, not cross country, twintip or snowboarding.
<p style="font-style: normal;">My thought is that it should look like a college team logo http://www.freevector.com/site_medi…-Logos.jpg, or NHL like The Florida Panthers' style http://www.varjerseys.com/images/te…s_logo.jpg, or this one from Anaheim Mighty Ducks http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/logos/…s_1995.gif, Toronto Raptors http://www.bladecreativebranding.co…-Logos.png, Carolina Panthers http://cbssports.com/images/blogs/N…e_Logo.jpg, Or maybe the best one to be associated with Gangsters; Pittsburgh Pirates http://wagneragency.com/wp-content/…s-logo.gif.
<p style="font-style: normal;">Colors DO NOT have to be the same as Heming main logo. But CAN.
