Victoria - Garden City FC

Recommended Posts

Hey folks, I guess you could say I'm doing a bit of a Canadian Soccer series. Hoping to get some of my ideas used if this C-league thing actually happens. Anyways, heres what I have for Victoria - often nicknamed garden city, known for its flowers(obviously), the provincial flower of pacific dogwood. Thoughts?i2QJl2X.png

This is very nice, I like the use of pastel colors that make this feel airy and pretty. Not sure if that captures the spirit of a soccer team, but this is very nice. Great work.

Agree with jrcollis. Very nice, but not as soccer-y as I'd like. What if you soccer-ed up the petals by making them more distinctly pentagon-shaped, like soccer ball panels, with the center circle perhaps a full soccer ball?

lol none of my soccer posts are ever soccer-y enough. I might try the soccer ball center though, despite my absolute hatred for the overuse of soccer balls in crests. thanks for the feedback :)

Added soccer ball in the centre, and changed the brushstrokes on the lines in the petals, feel like its better.

You appear to be using as many as 5 different shades of green. I'd suggest cutting this back to 3 at most. Use white and the dark green of the letters to create some contrast. Thicken up the strokes all around. This should help it look a bit more like a soccer crest.

Big improvement. The color contrast and reduced detail are most helpful. This has moved away from looking like a floral-shop sign and towards a unique but realistic soccer crest. I don't know what's going on with the verticals coming off the top and bottom. And there's a part of me wanting a little more added, maybe a banner with team motto or something. Some of the better soccer crests incorporate multiple elements to recall their team's history, geography, etc.

added third colour and tried to incorporate some tapering to give it a subtley first nation artwork vibe, as there is a strong first nation community on Vancouver island where Victoria is. Thoughts? UjG383K.png

Added third tone back and tried to incorporate some tapering hoping to give it a subtle first nation art feel, as there is a strong first nation heritage in the region. Thoughts? m0f7b47.png

The thickened lines greatly improve the logo. It now looks like it could be a soccer crest, before it looked more like a logo for a golf course. As Whittier said, a banner could be a nice touch.

do you think they might be slightly too thick? I think its pretty good but I'm not sure if it would be better just a tad thinner

No, I don't think they are too thick.

This might be worse, but I thought i'd get feedback anyways.

Took out the gcfc and just switched it to a V for Victoria - had to take out the soccer ball because it was asymetrical. It's definitely less soccer-y but it might look better overall. I don't know haha

This might work if you used a different font, but the extreme imbalance of this font doesn't look very good on the symmetrical logo behind it. I think banners across the top (saying Garden City)and bottom (Football Club) would be the best look.

This looks solid. I think it might look even better if you use an old style ball, like in the Barcelona crest:

Their ball looks a little cartoonish, but I like the curves of the stitching. It might flow with the flower theme a little more than the modern ball.

changed up the soccer ball and added the(still slightly incomplete) banner. I'm not personally a fan of the banner, think the simplicity is better without. The soccer ball though I'm kinda torn between the two. YkmJFyS.png

I know I'm kind of late on this, but I think this style ball is definitely an improvement. Which one did you end up going with?

Kinda had put this one on the back burner for a bit to be honest, although I think I was leaning towards the other. Didn't really have a strong feeling either way though really.
