The Grind Outdoors representative requested a logo be designed from scratch for their YouTube Channel.
“I have a growing YouTube Channel. I really would like a quality logo. My YouTube channel name is The Grind Outdoors. I video my hunting fishing trips tips and friends and family. I would like help creating a logo. I would like something the could eventually be put on tee shirts, hats, coffee cups, and fishing rods. I do not have a large budget is my downfall. I really look forward to working with you and hope to hear from you soon.”
After a couple of emails and one phone call we got more of an idea.
“I feel that I was very vague about my logo on the phone. I should probably tell you what my channel is about. The Grind Outdoors is the name of my channel.I make hunting and fishing videos with friends and family. Bow hunting and bass fishing are the main goals of my channel. Here are some ideas you can throw around:
2)Arrows and fishing rods making a campus rose
5) Fish net
I do not expect all these in a logo, but just some ideas. I want something simple, nothing to extravagant. I would like to have kinda hidden my initials bp. Color wise I really do not care, just kinda simple.
Thank you for you help. I am very privileged to be working with you. Thank you also for being prompt and kind when answering my emails and calls today.”
So with a small budget and a little more to go on, we offered up 6 examples. We used the following fonts to convey the outdoor sporting feel: CGF Locust Resistance, Warp Drive, Andis Light, Airstrike Half-tone Regular and ITC Blaze. Trying to find the best vectors already out there for the antlers, bow and fish were time consuming but worth it.
“They are awesome! I like the skull in the first one, but not a fan of my initials in it. I think the initials look best in the bass in the 5th one or the “D”. I like the bass in the 5th one(maybe if it was green), I think if you could mix the first one and the 5th one together and see what that looks like.I like the hook horns and the way “grind” looks in the 7th one. My two favorite ones are the ones with the skull and the one with the bass!”
Thanks So much,
In the end, although the client did not choose my favorite, he was quite please with what he got for his investment.
