I'm starting a website called NFL Draft Maverick and being that I'm using the word 'Maverick' as a central theme, I'd really like to play off the 'Top Gun' theme.
For the logo, I'm thinking about possibly re-creating the iconic TOP GUN logo from the 80s and morph its image into the my new logo. I've created a rough draft of what it could look like from just using paint, but this I'd like to see some real creativity and color put into it. I'd also be interested in a logo that incorporates the 'Maverick' fighter pilot helmet, or anything just really creative that incorporates the 'Top Gun' and 'Maverick' theme. For the color style, I am really open to anything, especially if it captures the theme really well.
Overall, I really want some creativity put into this website to make it look professional and legitimate. I'd like it to be clean and easily readible, a site that readers will look at and say "WOW! This website does not look like your average blog, but a professional site with a very catchy title/logo/banner/style."
Thank you and looking forward to hearing from the experts in website/logo design!
