We need a company logo. Designers feel free to flex your creative muscle.
In my mind the logo is strong and bold. Keep in mind, for our first product it will have to be printed across an orange basketball which is typically in solid black writing, sometimes with an outline (see attachment). I would like for the logo to be strong, tough and cool (Spalding and Wilson logos are not strong enough in my opinion). The logo will be one that our customers will be proud to show off on the basketball court or soccer field.
I would be open to an all text logo, all text within a larger design logo, or the company name accompanied by a small letter logo or image logo. Letter and image logo ideas are using a "D", an abstract dime, or the eagle logo from the back of the Unites State 1800 dime (see attachment), or anything else you think is strong and tough.
I have attached a file of some fonts and logos that I like but by no means do you have to stick to them. Get creative. I was inspired somewhat by tattoo type fonts (basketball and soccer players are typically covered in tattoos), strong fonts, bold fonts, and modern fonts but please don't be limited to just that. Use your creativity!
