Sports logo best practices

Colorful Windows with Trees Indoors

Color

Your team’s logo colors can come to define your brand, appearing across everything from jerseys, to equipment, to facepaint. To build a palette your fans can stand behind, go bold. Striking, saturated colors are just the ticket, creating a confident first impression for your team. Choose 1-2 distinct colors, and avoid anything that resembles your rivals’ colors too closely.

Phone Layout with Logo on Screen

Layout

Sports logos can appear just about anywhere. So to ensure your logo looks just as great on the Megatron as it does on merch, keep it simple. Look for layouts without too many complex features, that put either your name or symbol in the spotlight. If you’re not sure which layouts will play best, try browsing Looka’s mockups feature to see what different formats look like in action.

Typography

When it comes to choosing sports logo fonts, you need to go big or go home. Uppercase, bold Sans-Serif typefaces are the name of the game for company and team logos alike. Aside from adding a feeling of enthusiasm to your logo, this style of font is also highly readable. With the right spirit and the right style, these fonts make it easy for fans to read, remember, and cheer your name.

Elaborate Ampersand Symbol on Crowded Desk

Symbol

Many sports symbols also serve as mascots, making animals one of the most popular symbol options for logos in this industry. If you want your symbol to double as your mascot, opt for something with a cartoonish style that will translate well to a costume. If you’re not a fan of mascots, consider an abstract symbol to communicate your team’s strengths.
