I encourage submissions to be creative and not the typical sports design. We want the logo to look luxurious and classy, rather than a typical sports logo that might have more generic and bolder fonts. If you can incorporate the Easter Seals stamp from the logo I provided as well (just the stamp, no words, and no red colour), that would be beneficial. I also encourage horizontal logo submissions.
The tournament is at a high-end golf course in the country. Originally, we were not looking for a crested logo; but this might be something that could work for the logo. Colour wise we are looking at gold, black, and/or white. If we use golf, we want a softer gold tone...not something harsh that looks more like a yellow tone.
We would like the name of the event incorporated with an image as we might sometimes use the image on its own and sometimes with the name of the event, and vice versa (if it is a crested logo, then the full name should probably be included in the crest). Again, the colours should be gold with black or white. This is a high-end event with sponsorships in the $30,000 range, so nothing cartoonish looking please.
