We are a family bowling center that has been in business for 36 years. We were started in 1974 by my grandfather. We have two bowling centers, Manor Lanes and Manor Lanes II. I am looking for a modern design that incorporates anything bowling. It also needs to be able to be embroidered on shirts and hats as well as being used on our website (currently in the process of being re-designed). In the past we have always used the same logo for both locations so I need to have a design that I could add the number 2 or a Roman numeral two. I have always liked the idea of having a logo that as soon as people see it, they recognize it. We are also trying to attract the large number of local college students so any logo that students would be attracted to or would notice would be great.
We have a wide variety of customers. We have "league" bowlers that are in the center once a week for 36 weeks, we have senior citizens, we have children that are 10 and under. We are trying to target more "recreational" bowlers meaning bowlers that only come in to throw a few games and hang with friends. We also run college nights and attract a number of students from local colleges.
I don't have any requirements. I am looking for a modern logo that is simple enough to be incorporated on our website and on apparel. The logo should be done in a blue color scheme but able to be manipulated if necessary.
