My flag football team decided to take our game to the next level this season and get some jerseys printed up. Naturally, this means we needed a badass logo that was going to not only make us look good, but also strike fear into the hearts of our opponents, so I opened up Illustrator and got to work.
With a team name like the Nitros, it was obvious that I needed to design a logo that was bold, loud, and fast. To accomplish this, I set the ‘Nitros’ text in a thick sans-serif that looks strong and sporty. I then added some depth to the text via extrusion and shadow effects, and added a notch to the ‘N’ to give it a sense of speed.
Behind the typography I created a flaming football (the football caught fire due to reaching blazing speeds just before I caught it for a touchdown, obviously) to give the logo design some extra firepower and to tie in the football theme.
This project was a blast to work on (no pun intended), now I’m just looking forward to seeing the logo in action out on the gridiron!
