Pyramids FC is an Egyptian Premier League football club based in Assiut, formerly known as Al Assiouty Sport and recently acquired by chairman Turki al-Sheikh. The new board of the club hired 3e60 creative agency to create a new brand identity. My role consisted in creating their new logo and cartoon mascot design.
While the name of the club is Pyramids FC, and after testing the Pyramids as main brand element, the concept chosen by the Club was the Sphinx. With this choice we achieved 3 goals: it humanises the brand, makes it visually more interesting and also helps with activations of the sport mascot as key element in the brand identity.
The Sphinx sport mascot character is a key element in the brand identity, as any other brand asset it can be used as a visual element, it can also be manufactured as a costume and be used as events activator.
I created an USA style sport logo design: bold lines, flat color and 2 geographical references: the Pyramids and the Sphinx. The logo can be used on different forms adapting to different case scenarios.
The Team Badge works perfectly over light and dark backgrounds and also in limited palette of color.
PYRAMIDS FC kit for the season 2018 – 2019 has blue and white as primary color. For the second and third uniform they used different shadings of blue.
