The Hit Squad

Business Brief

THE HIT SQUAD is a pool/billiards team that will be competing in the World Championships of Amateur Pool in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Industry

Sports Recreation

Ideas & concepts

We have two concepts we'd like to explore:

1) A play on pool drill schematics incorporating the shape of a pool table with balls, angles and drills. The "Hit Squad" name could be burnished into the felt of the table or added above the table.

2) To play with the double meaning of "Hit Squad" - hit as it relates to a pool shot and the way that you hit that shot or hit as in "to shoot with a gun". Use the classic way cue ball spin is depicted in diagrams, which looks very much like the sights of a gun. (see https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/bd/77/7c/bd777cea57c305f7bbbc05b96fcc1ec9.jpg)

For the font/lettering treatment of THE HIT SQUAD, use a playful and bold idea featured in some professional sports teams (like the lettering from the sample logos selected here). See other sports teams font treatment uploaded as well.

If depicting the cue ball, use the red "circle" or "measles" version of the cue ball. See attached images.

THE HIT SQUAD plays both 8 and 9 ball, so depiction of either of those balls specifically isn't necessarily desired.

Sample Styles

We'd ideally like to have a 2:3 height:width aspect ratio design and it will be put on a black background.
