South County Bandits Volleyball Club- New Branding & Website

After a tonne of concepts, meetings, hours and tweaks, we were excited to reveal the new branding & website for the South County Bandits Volleyball Club. The logo unveiling at their annual athletic banquet in May was met with a resounding cheer from the 300+ attendants in the banquet hall! A very exciting moment and celebration. The website was released a few months later in August with great excitement as well.
 
Branding & Logo Development
For the initial branding stage, K Design first worked through digging out all of the old South County logo concepts (7 variations- see visual below), and researched other clubs to ensure our solution would be unique and competitive, but also honour the history of the club. After years of only focusing on the words “South County”, Kristine suggested it was time to BRING BACK THE BANDIT. The Bandit focus would allow for a new, more playful icon and help the club be more bold and original with their graphics and swag. It was also decided to maintain their black/white & teal colours along with an accent of orange. Exact Pantones were selected to ensure consistency. K Design worked through many MANY concepts, all illustrated in various styles. After much debate and surveys, the final ‘comic book style’ was selected. They loved having the shape of the ball included, and a STRONG, dynamic look & font. Kristine also snuck in a hidden image. Can you find the map of Windsor-Essex County designed into the scarf?
