Hello guys and gals!

I have hired some graphic designers to create a logo for ChiefsCrowd.com. This logo would be used for business cards, t-shirts, the website, signs, etc.

These versions are only rough drafts, so changes can and will be made.

Here's how you can help me:
Please take a look at these graphics and let me know what you think, which ones you like, and any changes you would suggest to make them better. Keep in mind that they will appear on shirts, etc. Would you wear them, etc?

I will be posting a thread on Friday with the final drafts and will be asking for everyone to vote for their favorite one.

Thanks for your help!

I like the one with the KC in the middle and the Chiefs Crowd lettering on the sides. Kinda makes it look like a football stadium.

I believe it was supposed to look like the top of a helmet. But I like the idea of it looking like a superbowl ring.

There aren't. It is an edit that is being taken care of. I am also having the blue background turned green similar to a football field. I am having the pink changed to another color. The font color will be changed as well.

I liked the one with the guy breaking though the background, then timsatt said he liked it and went and ruined it for me.

Actually I am a little (very little) offended that coach decided to pay someone to come up with a logo and didn't have some sort of contest with arrowcash for a logo here. I think there are at least a few on this site that have very good graphics talent, and I am not sure if these artists are Chiefs fans or not but feel that the best person to design this logo would be a crowd goer and a Chiefs fan.

Right off the bat I see a major problem with all of them but the breaking though one. The web address is only on the breaking through one and it is hard to read on there.

This is just my thoughts.

Design away. I would love ideas and any designs that you guys come up with. I would especially love T-Shirt ideas. However, I am going to start a T-Shirt thread next week after the logo has been chosen.

I like the one in the middle. It's very professional looking and simple. It gets the point across without drawing attention away from the message with overbearing, huge, fancy graphics. The only thing I would do differently is try to make the circle behind the football and arrowhead more yellow instead of green.

I definately like this logo. Not sure what color combo is the best. The green looked real good, obviously the green representing the football field.

making it all red obviously makes it more "chiefy" but the green was easier on the eyes....the red is almost too red.

...maybe....not decided yet. the red looked good, just thought i liked the green better.

No. Ok we are the chiefs crowd, then show a Crowd of Chief's Fans.

I hear what you are saying, but it is tough to do in a small logo. For a website header like we have at the top of this screen it's no problem. I am looking for a logo.

If you have ideas on a logo that would show a crowd of Chiefs fans, then shoot me a PM and I'll try to design it using your idea.

Thanks for the input.

I think if you are making them for a T Shirt logo that those colors would loog good on their own, but not surrounding the big logo.
