Hi! We are creating a new pickleball paddle and need a design for the paddle face. We have two existing models. This design is for our new, premium paddle. The design should tie in to our existing line but elevate it to a more premium space.
See attached for an image competitor product (Python). We are using very similar shape paddle but of course need our own design. I also attached die line for your reference.
As noted, we already have similar products (brand name, logo) in our Amazin' Aces Quality Sporting Goods line but this is our newest addition. The name of this line is 'PRO SERIES'. The Model Name is 'BAINBRIDGE'.
Please review other pickleball paddles online for idea of designs in the marketplace. You can see image of our wood paddle set and logo. It has a bit of a retro feel but it is not dated or old feeling. Customers like this look.
We want to introduce this new, more expensive, paddle into the market. This will be a premium paddle and the design should feel premium as well. A wonderful design is of utmost importance.
I attached a rough sketch I did. One idea I had was inspired by Les Paul Sunburst guitar. I attached an example of the sunburst. The outside of paddle could be darker and then lighten. Just like the attached guitar image with similar colors. Different color schemes would be good to see too. My sketch is just one idea but we encourage designers to use their creativity if they have a better idea that ties in to the current line of Amazin' Aces paddles but elevates the design to a more premium level.
Please bring your ideas about design, colors, etc. Note the colors should be gender neutral... it should appeal to both men and women.
The most important thing is a degree of consistency with our other paddle/logo but elevating to a premium space.
Please let me know any questions.
We am excited to work with such a talented group of designers!
