    I have a friend that is wanting to designing a logo for their website and I need a little help. It is going to be a site for women to go and talk & read all about their favorite NFL team. The name of the site is nflladies.com and she is wanting to include the a football in the logo.

    A football with a women on it maybe?? She is open to any good idea so please help if you can..

    Thanks a lot

    How about a pink football helmet? Or, maybe, a pink football tied up with a red ribbon. Anyway, something feminine. I'm also thinking of a smiling lady in a pink football helmet peering over a pink football with just her eyes showing. You need a minimal amount of elements in this design, just enough to get the idea across with impact. Less is more. :image07-1:

    I think a pink helmet is a great idea!

    Good luck with this Conn.
    It's a great idea for a website.

    Take a look at this attempt. I think I spelled NFLadies wrong. But, anyway, here is an idea, rough tho' it may be.

    Conn,
    I don't think the *.png file came through on the first attempt. I'll try again.

    P.S. Well, shoot, the type didn't come through on this one. What am I doing wrong? I had the type wrapped around the helmet. Anyway, you get the idea.

    I would try and go with a more traditional looking football helment, facing forward, with the NFL Ladies in a pink outline. Way too much pink on the current designs... They are nice, but I don't think the NFL ladies will want to be totally synonomous with pink... Maybe a black helment, pink out line... By the way, did your friend check out the copyright restrictions for using the letters NFL concurrently in his site name. Since it has to do with football, you can bet the real NFL will have something to say upon hearing about its name... Also note, putting the helment on a side view also provides the chance for replicating some of the current NFL logos...but I still say its a great idea and has huge potential...

    As far as copyright restrictions, a letter to the NFL requesting permission to use this in a "fan-based" site would probably result in an o.k. There are no "conflicting commercial uses" here unless the NFLLADIES decide to sell products sporting NFL logos - then they would run afoul of the copyright law. Anyway, before I forged ahead blindly on this, I would seek legal representation or, at the minimum, some intitial contact with the NFL legal department.

    I can see what you are saying and that may be true. That is why I'm getting a few examples and then letting her choose which one is best for her needs.

    As far as restrictions... We are talking to them now and the letters "NFL" are not really copyrighted when used with another name and we will not be selling anything the has the NFL Logo on it..

    We are also in the proccess of getting permission from them.. just in case

    My concern was more towards the initial concept... I'm not kidding, this site could be a huge international draw.. The NFL may see the potential in the concept and run with it... If its a trademarked / copyrighted name, there might be long term potential to sell off the rights to them after promoting... BIG MONEY!!!!

    Good luck and keep us informed of the process...

    Hang in there Con... someone will be willing to help. Take a look at the contest section. See if anyones skill level is appealing and PM them your request.

    Ryan makes a good recommendation. Take a peek at some other designers that have done work here on the forum and pm (private message) them for assistance. Some are little cautious to help because they do expect to be compensated for the work they do and have been ripped off in the past, so they don't post on these requests. Details on hiring a designer that can do the work for you at the price you can afford can be achieved privately much more successful sometimes.

    I went out of the box with a cleated high heel shoe flavored by the NFL logo.
