Split Grip

Describe your company and organization and target audience

We are a wood baseball bat company based out of Colorado Springs, CO, USA. We are patent pending on this design on the handle of the bat. Our company is named Split Grip, LLC. Berg Bat Company, LLC will manufacture these bats. Our website is www.bergbat.com. Trevor, one of the owners of Split Grip, has been manufacturing wood bats for the last 13 years.

I have a graphic design degree and have been a freelance designer for 5 years.

The design should have the following

Our handle, with the two knobs is a non-negotionable. Either half of it, letters to fit inside, etc. Our handle is our bat - it is our business.

I am thinking more of a display font for this logo. Something in a masculine script would also work. This logo will be used on all of our bats with a design to be no bigger than 4"W x 2"H. 

Please reference the logos on the homepage of this website to gain more of an understanding of how these logos look on wood baseball bats. https://www.thewoodbatfactory.com/

This logo will need to be modified from the trademark logo, on our bats, to be able to be put on shirts, hats, mugs, etc. so please think of scalability and modification when designing. The smallest logo that we will need will have to be able to fit comfortably in a 1" circle.

We will also need this to be easily converted to a laser engraver, so 1 color (RGB Black).

I have created some rough sketches in Illustrator to show you where my head is at on this, but take these and run with it.

This logo will be used for

  • Online (Website, facebook etc.)
  • Print (business cards, letterheads, brochures etc.)
  • Merchandise (mugs, t-shirts etc.)
  • Signs (including shops, billboards etc.)
  • Television/screen

This design should not have this in the entries

Crossed bats - This is very cheesy for the top of the line product that we produce.

Any baseballs anywhere in the design.

Colors to use in the design

Pretty open at this point. Please be creative.
