I'm an avid athlete who loves the thrill of competition, and believes lacrosse is one of the most exciting sports in the nation.
-'Gataway Grips comes from the Native American word for lacrosse "Bagataway." The sport was known as the "little brother of war," as Native American tribes often used it to settle disputes.
-Today, the game has transformed into an exciting, fast paced sport that combines the physicality of football and hockey with the finesse needed for basketball and soccer.
-The goal is to individualize a player's lacrosse stick, so I am targeting male lacrosse players, ages 8 to 20.
-Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the US, is deeply rooted in its Native American traditions, and is constantly evolving.
-While is is a team game, the stick is as unique as the individual player and is often a source of pride for the player, always fine tuning the stick to get it just right (Native American sticks were decorated with strings and feathers to set them apart).
I am looking for a logo that will be printed on the packaging and on the grips themselves.
I would like 'Gataway to be stacked on top of Grips
I want the logo to be very bold and eye-catching (it will be used for packaging as well as on the gear so I need people to notice it)
I do not want any pictures of a lacrosse player
I would prefer to have some lacrosse imagery within the logo
I thought it would be cool if the apostrophe before Gataway was a feather and then the logo had other Native American lacrosse imagery within it, here are some pictures of old sticks for reference:
*This was just my initial thought but feel free to be creative and come up with what you like
Please no clip art or stock photos
Aside from those guidelines be as creative as you want and have fun! I will be checking in often making reviews so feel free to ask any questions for verification!
(I have also attached a picture of the grips so you can see what they look like)
