LOGO for High School Sports Team -> Fire-breathing Gecko

Who we are:

"Bring the H.E.A.T!" (not on the logo)

Describe your company and organization and target audience.

We are an international high school is located on a subtropical island in southern China, called Hainan. It’s hot all year-round here, thus the name of our school is: the Hainan Heat. The gecko is native animal to the island, thus is our school ‘mascot’. To add the element of ‘heat’ to our gecko, we created the idea of a fire-breathing gecko. (Like a mini Chinese dragon).

The image of the fire-breathing gecko that we have been using up till now is a simple silhouette of a gecko spitting fire. (see attached image of fire-breathing gecko)

We now want to upgrade to a full-on school logo that brings the fire-breathing gecko to life.

Our desire is to create a logo that incorporates a few elements from Hainan in it. We plan to use it on our sports teams jerseys (as well as other merchandise and online), thus a lot of the inspiration for the logo design should come from professional sports teams logos.

The design should have the following:


The design should have the following.

1. The name 'HAINAN HEAT'
2. A fire-breathing gecko BUILT INTO the name.
3. Coconut tree/s BUILT INTO the name.
4. Water can also built into the name. (optional)

We don't want to provide any other direction than this. Use whatever colors you like. Be as creative as you can!

How can you build a fire-breathing gecko and coconut tree/s (with or without water) into the name 'HAINAN HEAT'?

We look forward to seeing your designs!



Logo elements we would like to include are:

1. The Century Bridge - A famous landmark of Hainan, the Century Bridge links two parts of the island together. (see attached images of Century Bridge)
2. A larger-than-life, fire-breathing gecko climbing on the bridge…looking like it’s about to take over the entire city. (see attached images of (1) King Kong taking over a bridge, (2) a real Hainan gecko, (3) two horribly stupid mock-ups of a fire-breathing gecko on a bridge)
3. Our school name “Hainan Heat” IN the logo. (see image of NBA Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors for overall logo inspiration)
5. Coconut trees and water

* I see that most pro sports teams have simple logos without many extra elements, however we are open to seeing different types of designs with these optional elements.

This logo will be used for:

Print (business cards, letterheads, brochures etc.)
Online (website, online advertising, banner ads etc.)
Merchandise (mugs, t-shirts etc.)
Signs (including shops, billboards etc.)

We do not want this in the entries:
