We are a Swim League in Marin California and will be hosting the league championship in 2010. We will host over 2000 swimmers and their families in July 2010. Swimmers are ages 5-18. We are a non-profit group and all of the proceeds go back to the teams to support the kids. For these kids this is like the Olympics and some of these kids me in fact be future Olympians.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Kids who love swimming and their parents who are extremely proud. The logo has to appeal to young children while not appearing juviniel. It should appeal to the sense of accomplishment, like most athletes that make it to the Olympics - they won't win a metal - but walking the parade and representing their country makes them extremely proud. These kids will be representing their respective teams and will want a Tee-shirt, fleece or hat to remember it by. This will be for Kids who love swimming and their parents who are extremely proud. We have recieved several excellent crest designs to date. I would like to see some more modern approaches to the project. See the attacged design for inspiration but fee free to be creative.
The art needs to be able to work on navy blue, heather grey and white. MSL or Marin Swim League must be listed. Championships or CHAMPS must be a focal point. All10 teams must be represented; visit http://marinswimleague.org/teams
for more details and logos. It could be a simple wallpaper effect as the background of the 10 teams - Seals - Lightning - Sea Serpents - Swim Marin - Orcas - Sea Lions - Riptide - Water Devils - Stingrays - Tidal Waves. There are two concepts available - very different interpretation but might provide inspiration. Using one color versions of the team logos is a big plus. Be creative and modern. We have several good classic designs to choose from.
