Open to suggestions...
Desired Color Scheme:
1. This contests ends at noon(CST)on November 17th.
2. A winner WILL BE chosen and $100 WILL BE PAID to the winner. I use PayPal.
3. We reserve the right not to use your work even if you win. In that case, you will retain the copyright and any additional rights to your original work. Otherwise, all rights are transferred to us.
4. If we like your work, we may offer an additional $150 to you to create buttons, graphics, holiday themes based off the original logo.
5. The logo must be placed on a banner that is 1600 pixels wide/variable height and that can be easily placed on a typical volusion-type website at clinchfight.com.
6. The logo/banner should state: CLINCH FIGHTWEAR COMPANY with the website below it or close by.
7. I don't have an exact preference on colors, etc., but I would like to see a Mixed Martial Arts figure in the logo. This can be a photo (one that is ok for use on a commercial site), a 3D animated figure, etc. No generic clipart that would make the site look less than professional.
8. Fighter graphics created using the plum clinch or thai clinch (fingers laced behind opponents head in order to pull close to deliver strikes, knees, etc) will be appreciated as the name of the company is CLINCH. However, not mandatory.
9. Mixed Martial Arts is different from martial arts. Do a search on the ufc, pridefc, or google it to get more info if needed. A few key points: Stay away from the typical Eastern/Asian characters related to traditional martial arts. The MMA fighter generally wears board shorts and open finger gloves rather than a traditional gi or uniform with a belt.
10. To give more of an idea (not to copy, just to get the feel), some other websites in the industry whose graphics/logos we like are:
http://wanderleisilva.com.br/ - logo at top
http://www.fightresource.com/ - cool header
http://www.theworldfighter.com/start.html - an ok logo in top left corner
https://www.rdfc.tv/bio_wand.html - some logos down the left column of this page
Can't find a whole lot I do like.
11. Fighter graphic should not too closely resemble any particular live mma fighter so as to avoid any copyright problems.
12. Any questions, feel free to contact me on here or via email.
Good luck and let the games begin.
