Go Kickball Brand Identity
GO Kickball is a social sports brand that operates in several markets across the US. Over the last several years, the GO Kickball logo had been splintered and represented in various ways through the different markets and seasons. With Live Life Fun ready to relaunch the brand, they needed a fresh start.
We decided to pay homage to what made the brand thrive in the past and resonated with their players. The result was more than a logo refresh, it was the creation of a brand identity system that gave GO Kickball not only a clean slate but also a direction for how the brand should grow and evolve over the coming years.
The iconic red
Historically, the GO Kickball brand had always featured red as a highlight color, along with the dark gray. For our rebranding efforts, we wanted to take that to the next level. That’s why we created a version of the logo that would work in the red background, so that we could use the red freely while still having a logo representation that worked well on that background. Similarly, it was important to let the red tone be vibrant enough to stand out when used over red or white.
The evolution of the kicker
Throughout the years, the kicker had been a constant for the GO Kickball brand. During the brand refresh, great attention was paid to the kicker’s silhouette. We made sure that the body position reflected a more natural stance than the original version.
We also created variations of the kicker, making a female kicker and a side-view of a kicker. These new kickers equipped the team with variations that could be used for other marketing materials.
Enriching the brand story with icons
We created an icon library that was used to symbolize the different aspects of the GO Kickball leagues, such as scheduling, communication, location and the date of the events.
