We want to keep the logo recognizable, but fresher and more modern. The basketball that is used as the "o" in the word "Double" is something we want to stay. The new color scheme for the restaurant is a lot of slate blues, grays, whites, blacks, metals, and reclaimed wood. We're interested in more modern font, vs. the typical sports lettering. Also interested in seeing designs incorporating metal lettering.
Attached you'll find the current logo from 1996, what it looks like on the outside of the building, and also the website logo which was done more recently, in addition to some other logos other designers have attempted in the last few months that were somewhat on the right track, not quite cutting it.
The design will also be printed on shirts, so in addition to the main logo for the website, it will need to be adaptable to fit on different colored shirts for employees to wear, as well as for a sign for the outside of the building.
