Need help on a logo for a MLB player

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I am not sure about the idea I have for this logo. I am sort of stuck. Can someone either offer some suggestions or even give me a few ideas to go another way? This logo just doesn't work well at small sizes. I want it to be simple and able to be a one color Vector logo if possible. I was aiming more for modern than overly baseball-y. I am still looking at font usage for this logo, but I am just stuck.

Here is the logo

Here is the basic layout (not finished) of the website I am creating.

first off, i gotta say i love your work and have viewed your website on several occassions just to see any updates. excellent stuff.

that second version is excellent. when i think of zito, i think of his nasty hook. i love that it's somewhat abstract, yet you know what it's all about at the same time. excellent work, walk.

I think it kinda has to be abstract. With too many athlete logos, all you get is a silhouetter or some kind of stylized version of their jersey number in his team colors. I think this is a welcomed departure. When you think Barry Zito, you think about that wicked 12-to-6, fall of the edge of the table curve ball. I think you represented it well.

By the way, if it was total crap, then you'd have a page or three of comments. Most good designs either go unnoticed or just aren't commented on...for whatever reasons.

Thanks, I was starting to think it was total crap because no one was commenting on it.

Is there anything that could be better on it? Is it too abstract?

Firs of all, this is some great work here, Walk. My only suggestion would be to enlongen the end of the tail of the curve, so that it meets with the "Barry Zito" text or comes down even below the text, to really emphasize (not to the point of overkill however) the nastiness of Zito's curve. I love the way you represented the flames around the ball, like I said, just enlongate that tail. You may also want to add some more motion lines; people who don't know Barry Zito is a pitcher may not get the idea that this is a ball that is thrown, not hit. Maybe add in smaller letters either his number or his position (i.e. SP) next to his name on the right. If you don't like these ideas, no hurt feelings, but it may help a bit. Awesome job either way

In myopinion its okay kind of boring.

Two other things also. He's a lefty so the ball is coming from the other side , flip the ball and arc and maybe soemthing cool is bring the line though the Z like a Zorro mark but for Zito and baseball. This way that can be used as a secondary

he's a lefty, so I made it come from the persepctive of watching it on TV. Left to right.

, I just didn't want it to be too long, because it would be too hard to implement on stuff.
