I would like the logo to be a combination mark, that incorporates the text “Lyme Force” and uses symbols such as a tick bug and a shield to represent a force against lyme disease. A shield is just one example of a symbol that could represent force, I would like designers to be creative and think of other symbols that could represent this. As long as the logo represents our brand’s mission to fight against lyme disease (tick bugs) I will be open to the design.
One thing I don't want designers to do is to make the logo look too much like an actual tick bug. I would like my designers to be more creative and abstract, and make mascots or drawings of tick bugs rather than just making a logo out of the traditional tick bug shape.
One major thing to think about when designing is that we are a clothing brand. I would like designers to think about their logos and whether they would look nice when printed onto an article of clothing.
Note: What I am NOT looking for is a logo of a tick bug with a target sign or crosshairs over it. I strongly dislike these types of logos because I don’t feel like it represents our brand. Our goal is not to exterminate ticks, but to raise awareness for Lyme Disease as a whole.
I would like editable source files for the winning logo.
I have attached images for inspiration and my ideas on how to make a Lyme Force logo in a style that I like.
Skunks & Soaps:
I really like the style of this logo and I think it would look great on a t shirt. One idea for a logo one of you designers could make could be a typographic logo such as this with the words "Lyme Force" in the same format, but instead of having a skunk next to the L you could have a tick bug design maybe with one of its legs forming the shape of an L, and at the end of the word "Force" you could have a shield to represent Force. I really like this logo idea, and if one of you designers could create this, I will more than likely make you a finalist. This would be lime green instead of red of course.
Razorback Truck Gear:
Another idea for the logo could be to make a team mascot logo type design like the one depicted in this razorback truck gear logo. The designer would have to create a tick bug mascot and have the words Lyme Force in a team inspired logo design.
