IPL | International Pool League

Recommended Posts

Pool also known as Billiards is a popular bar game that is played with 8 Balls each with.. Y'all know how Pool works! Because of the many different rule sets this is the one being used to avoid confusion is where the first ball potted either stripes or solids the guy who potted it goes with. The end of a game is when a player gets rid of all their balls and pots an 8-Ball (non magical). If a foul occurs (illegal ball hit first, no ball hit, etc) the other person gets a free shot. Each game is played to 5 racks (best of 5)

The league starts out with 20 competitors, competing over 10 events with the last one being the championship. Points are collected via games won (1 game won = 10 points). Each competitors plays one game per event. These are the competitors names listed in no particular order

Ok I’ll play along.  So if this is an international league, are your 20 competitors from 20 different countries?

With the logo that you have, it's just sloppy. Your "P" appears to be at a slight angle, the "2018" is definitely not straight, and if it's supposed to be a pool table, shouldn't there be pockets?

Again, you seem to be putting more thought into your stories than into your artwork.

 

Your logo is a big green rectangle. If it's meant to be a pool table, where are the pockets? There are many other shapes associated with billiards that could be combined to make for much more interesting logos: triangles, balls, cues, etc. Try combining some of those and see what inspiration hits.

 

The lettering appears to not be centered -- the "IPL" seems to be a bit too far right, while the "2018" is too far left. And there's way too much unused space around the letters. Tighten it up by making the letters bigger or the table smaller. You might even try having the table in a landscape orientation rather than portrait; it might make everything more legible and visually pleasing, especially since the I is not the same width as the P or the L.

 

There is some weird warping and pixelation going on with your lettering, especially with your P and 201. Why the red, white and blue letters? Keep your colour schemes simple; the letters could all be white and you wouldn't lose anything. In fact, there isn't enough contrast between the green table and the blue L, so it gets lost. Green, tan, black and white would work well together.

 

The 8-ball in 201(8) is a fun little detail, but it's lost because it's so small and tucked in at the bottom. And then what happens in subsequent years? I guess 201(9) is easy, but what about 2020? There's no 20-ball, nor a 0-ball in billiards. 

 

From a moderation perspective, I don't see much more potential for logos beyond the league logo. Will each player have a logo (a la Premier League Darts)? Will each of the 10 events have its own logo? As with other threads, if it becomes too unbalanced toward story over artwork, it will get shut down.
