LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
We are a Scout Troop from Scotland. This summer we are travelling to the Swiss Alps to attend an international camp, and take part in alpine walking, water activities, biking etc.
The guy who we normally get to do our patch and t-shirt design has been promising something for months, but has run out of time, and he (well, its me) thought he would try and get something awesome in a really short space of time before he gets guilted any more!
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need a logo that can be used as the basis for an embroidered badge for our uniforms and also to use as a design for our expedition t-shirt. We probably need something that is 3 colours, maybe four (plus white on top). It makes the t-shirts more expensive, but if it can make them more awesome, then we might be able to go for it. The shirts will be screen printed, the badges will be embroidered. In the past we have used circular or square badges. You'll see the design uploaded is square. It does not have to be - this was just my very quick attempt at something.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
A bunch of youngsters, and some adults who are making sure that they keep themselves safe - plus several hundred other scouts from across Europe and even America who will see our t-shirts when we are over in Switzerland.
WE LIKE THESE EXAMPLES:
I have uploaded the very quick example that I put together. Its ok I guess, and gives an idea of what we are looking for. We would use something like this for the embroidered badge, but would look at perhaps "enlarging" or "expanding" it someone for the t-shirts.
This is the link to our own website: http://www.185scoutgroup.co.uk/
And the website of where we are going: http://www.kisc.ch/ (there are lots of photos here that give an idea of the summer based activities we will be taking part in).
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE THIS IN OUR PIECE:
It would be great to convey something of a spirit of adventure. Perhaps featuring some representation of swiss mountains and / or lakes. Featuring the Kandersteg logo, or the UK scout logo would also be good, but not essential. I also really like the look of some of those 1930s style tourist posters, something like that with an updated modern look might be good.
Text would probably contain the following
185th Glasgow Scout Group
Variations, different positions etc are fine. Text might be circular for example.
If its possible to add a flavour of scotland in there somewhere then that would be great. St Andrews flag perhaps.
