Youth clubs come in many shapes, sizes, and age levels. If you need a logo designed for your youth club and will be working with a designer, it’s important to let your graphic designer know what type of youth club you work with. A youth club logo will depend on the type of organization. If you’re a community youth club in an inner city, the logo may need to have a raw or particular design according to the city’s climate. A youth club that centers around sports would incorporate images for the particular sport. A youth club for a church or religious organization may be associated with a Christian, or faith based name and graphics. Still other youth clubs may be a motivational club for teens or young people needing mentoring. What your youth club represents is the first step to designing your youth club logo.
Your logo design process can be completed by a professional graphic design business. Many online websites allow you to design a logo free. These are limited to available graphics and fonts and may not provide the options you need. If you need a high quality logo that will keep its resolution for a banner or sign, then going with a professional designer is your best option.
Options to consider for your youth club logo design:
1. Color: Choose two or three colors remembering that black is actually a color. Any spaces not containing color will be transparent. The background color will show through when used on clothing or other printed items.
2. Font: The font for a youth club logo would typically be relative to the group age range. Younger junior high youth would be more fun-based and high school youth age members would find a modern, or age appropriate font style more appealing. Decide on these options according to your age group.
3. Images: If your youth club is part of a larger organization, you may need to include its logo or insignia. Work with the image to adjust colors and design to match your logo.
4. Text: Besides the name of your youth club, what message do you want to include? A tag line or motto can be included but, needs to be laid out so it’s easily read.
Consider a logo contest among the youth club members. Young people will have a good idea what they want the club to represent and the type of logo they’d be proud to display. Logo designs can be judged by a leadership team, or voted on by the members. If created by hand, the logo can then be redesigned by a designer to replicate the winning logo. It’s important your youth club logo has a youth themed look, but is professionally done. Your logo represents what you stand for and a cheap or confusing logo will not relay the message of your youth club.
