I would like a sleek looking logo that makes it clear that the card is related to the game of golf(use of Links obviously tie to golf). This can be done by incorporating golf balls, clubs, or a shield that is sometimes used for golf course logos. The I in Links could also be turned into a golf tee with a ball on it for example. Or a golfer's silhouette next to or in the logo like PGA TOUR's logo.
The logo needs to include the word Card in the design so people know what it is when the see just the logo.
I hate to hamstring designers by putting them into a tight box but I also want to give some basic idea of what I'm looking for. I am open to all ideas so please send me your comments and I will do my best to respond quickly.
One of my current websites will give you an idea of what I'm trying to accomplish with my Links VIP Card.
I have attached a picture of the sleeve and card photo and letterhead for a current card I have.
One important aspect of the logo is there needs to be a way to brand each Links VIP Card with a different city. Possibly for this Austin version a rubber stamp like mark on the corner of the design that says "Austin Area" or a silhouette of the skyline behind the logo.
The logo you make will need to look good on a plastic card as well as on any advertising that is done.
