How Matt Steen started their logo design journey

Company name

Strong On Paper

Overview

Strong On Paper is a new site for football (soccer) teams to organise their games, leagues etc. The basic idea is to make life as easy as possible for the gaffer (i.e. the bloke who organises the team), so they're not constantly chasing up their players. A game can be whatever size (5/6/11-a-side) on grass, astro, concrete, in a club, or just 'jumpers for goalposts' ... anywhere.

We're looking for a logo. We don't yet have one, so this can be treated as a blank canvas.

In case you don't know, 'Strong On Paper' is somewhat of a footballing/sporting cliche, as in 'the team looks strong on paper, but let's see how they perform on the pitch'.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Amateur male football (SOCCER) players, 16-40. Claim not to take the game too seriously, but get very excited just before the match.

Probably British for the moment. (But absolutely no union jacks or St George's crosses please.)

Requirements

* We need a LOGO.
* We want it to be simple, without too many elements.
* Must be a vector image.
* Preferably work in black & white as well as colour.
* We'd like a 'beta' version of the logo, i.e. with a small banner or subtext saying 'beta'.
* Buzz words: team, teamwork, gaffer (manager), sport, pitch.
* We would also like suggestions of Fonts that complement the logo.
* Optional: a letterhead based on the same design.
* Please provide examples with following fonts:

We don't want
* Union Jacks, flags etc..

----- UPDATE: some ideas for logos ------

I'd really like to get across the idea of team play in the logo, if at all possible:

Logo idea: see logo_test.jpg attached. As I said, I'd like to convey the idea that this is about teams...
