Ever one for Filipino time…We have just been asked to help get designs organised for Philippine United FC.
It is a football team that has been registered with the English Football Association and affiliated with the Philippine Football Federation (PFF). Friendlies are being arranged for next year and registration into a minor league is the next step.
The aim is to give British Filipinos a stage to play football and be seen by representatives of the PFF. The ultimate aim is to give them a chance to play for the national team and also give Filipinos in the Philippines the chance to come and play here for this team.
What we need is someone to design a logo and a shirt. The team and project is being put together by Leo Jensen and he will decide on the winning design. The design will be used on team shirts and on all promotional material.
I must stress the winner will not be paid for the design. A press release and announcement in the Philippines is being arranged as we speak and there will be an event with media coverage in mid-January and the winner will be there and interviewed about their design.
The remit is:
Logo: The Philippine Tamaraw, as the name suggests, is only found in the Philippines and it is a small, stocky, strong animal. This has been identified as a positive nickname and symbol. Designs similar to the Chicago Bulls and Toyota range of vehicles must be heavily scrutinized, but both images are iconic to Filipinos too. 3 stars and the sun are a given but the words Philippine United Football Club should feature too.
Shirt: Red, White and Blue are the national colours that should be incorporated. Please bear in mind, potential sponsor logos may clash if there are too many colours on the middle of the shirt.
All designs should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and should be received before January.
