This logo is for an athletic clothing company targeting Chinese women, so Asian-inspired design elements would be appropriate but not necessary. We want the logo to translate across any culture.


Here’s the image we are roughly looking for:

Imagine a woman (maybe an athlete or a warrior girl..) who is reaching up to brush her hair back so that her arm is shielding part of her face. The left side of her face can be seen, and her eye is staring straight at you, but the other half is obscured in shadow. This would make a shape slightly resembling a “P”. Feel free to play around with this idea, maybe hair would work better than an arm in dividing the face, or something entirely different.


The woman’s face should communicate intensity, beauty, strength, but also a femininity. If relevant to your design, her facial features should be of mixed Asian-European ethnicity (larger almond eyes, full lips, high cheekbones etc..).

We are open to seeing what direction you creatives take it. However, I don’t want the final image to verge too much into cartoon or anime territory. The goal is a logo that is stunning and clean.

We are looking for a badass, beautiful design.

Keep in mind we are creating a brand to inspire strong, beautiful, confident female athletes.

Some creatives have been asking about color schemes.

We were originally envisioning colorless sketches, but would be very happy to see what you guys do with color as well.

If you choose to incorporate color, we'd like to see either a blue scheme (light blues or richer blues are fine) or a pink/red scheme (think Chinese cherry blossom watercolors).

Some red/pink color ideas:

Thank you for the entries so far!

We wanted to clarify something from our original idea. When we said the woman was reaching up to brush her hair back, we meant more like raking her hair back with her fingers, like you would during a workout... not with an actual brush. Sorry for the confusion.

The designs we are seeing are looking too much like a makeup or beauty logo, not communicating the athletic spirit we were hoping for.

Hi everyone,

We just added some pictures of the kind of athletic woman we are targeting and the kind of woman we want our logo to embody.

Sweaty, beautiful, powerful, and vibrant.

The fourth file is a picture of a woman reaching her hand up to brush her hair back. It's not exactly perfect, but it's closer to what we are looking for. Just imagine that she was post-workout and was reaching up to push back sweaty bangs. That's more of the idea.
