Please keep in mind if drawing/designing in non-vector format that the design will need to be ‘vectorized’, so it is scalable. Clean, simple lines will work best.

Logo Design Requirements
The Logo must contain the words “Voodoo Derby Dollz”. Maximum of 3 colours can be used including cobalt/royal blue & lime/bright green, which are the league/team’s colours and MUST be used (not including black).
