Thank you for your interest with our project!
(Find the latest update down... below!)
Simple explanation about freediving: hold your breath, swim underwater as long as you could possibly do. =) It has some danger in it, especially if conducted without proper education and training.
We are trying to provide the education that are needed. Apnea Culture will be a freediving school (it's not fully running yet) based in Indonesia. We will have 3 main objectives: providing freediving courses, selling equipment, and organizing events. Our main focuses are safety and quality - we offer the good quality products and services to our customers and provide our best safety precaution in every activity that we do (competitions and/or trips).
One of our favourite sea creature is manta ray! =) We feel that manta is a great representation of freediving: exciting, relaxing, weightless, and peaceful. It would be nice if you can incorporate or use manta in the logo. =)
We want something different from the general logo/design that you will find when you search "freediving" or "apnea diving"! =)
Weare looking for logo that is simple, creative, friendly but still look professional and credible. It should also meaningful and will stick in people’s mind. We like the idea of a logo with hidden meaning or logo that has a “double image” depending on how you see the logo (we don’t know the design term but you know what it means, yes?). Apart from that, we are open for suggestion and your ideas. It is not impossible that we choose a design that is 180 degrees opposite from our request if we find it interesting, and suitable for us.
The logo will be use EVERYWHERE! website, business card, watermark on photos, stickers, printed on equipments (e.g. wetsuit, fins, mask, etc). Plus, we need a favicon for our web, so please provide us with example of its applicability. =)
We have tried to make the logo on our own.. But, due to our very limited capability, it turned out not very good - almost ugly I suppose, and seems to be lacking of credibility.. =p.
Explore the possibility, guys! Apnea Culture is our first project. It's actually like the big umbrella for what we want to do. We have big dreams with Apnea Culture like owning our own deep pool, brand for diving equipments, etc, etc. And when we organise an event (e.g. competition) we sure need a different logo for it. So, this is sort of like our first trial and maybe we can work for more projects in the future! =)
We hope the explanation is clear, but any question is welcome.
We'll be waiting for your designs! Surprise us! =)
Here are some examples of logo design from the web that we like.
A short explanation for a better understanding about freediving. It is a form of diving but the diver do not wear any breathing apparatus (tank). So, the diver hold their breath while diving.
Here are some freediving videos: hopefully they can help to give you inspiration and feeling about the logo that we need. Cheers!
p.s. do not try this without proper knowledge and education because it can be dangerous.
We attached some internal designs that we have tried to develop. So, these design can be your guidance, but please remember that we are not happy with them - that's why we ask for your help! =)
If you need, you can check our currently under-construction website at http://www.apneaculture.com/home
Things to be remembered:
- The logo will be used for a dive school so please make it suitable for such institution.
- Use colour as minimum as possible. (one or two colours would be preferable)
- Font type that you use will be put into consideration as well.
