Build Your Fantasy Football Logo Design

Now that we’ve previewed Placeit’s best fantasy football logo designs, let’s work on building out a brand-new custom logo for our fantasy team.

For the purposes of this tutorial, let’s say our fantasy team is called the Seattle Sabres. We want to build out a logo to use on a variety of materials: shirts, hats, posters, and more. Fortunately, with Placeit, what would ordinarily be a tiring and complicated challenge is reduced to just a handful of quick and easy clicks.

1. Choose a Starter Template

For our Sabres' branding, an image of crossed swords comes to mind as a good fit for the name. We’re ready to do battle on the virtual football field, and want to be armed with branding to match. For this, let’s jump into option #3 above, and view the Peculiar Things fantasy football logo creator.

When you click to select your chosen template, you’ll be taken to the main editing screen, as you can see here.

The Peculiar Things creator tool includes a grab bag of impressive and eye-catching shapes.

In the center, you can see a giant preview image. This is a live view of how your finished logo will look. As you make changes in the content placeholders around the sides, this preview image will update to reflect the latest adjustments. This feature saves guesswork and prevents you from having to continually download preview images as you dial in your edits.

2. Update the Selected Shape

Around the sides, you’ll see placeholder blocks that enable you to edit the football logo template. On the left, you can change the titles and subtitles in the logo, along with their respective font styles, designs, and colors. 

On the right, note the pair of color choosers to switch up the palette of the logo template. Below this is the collection of different logos, icons, and mascots available for your use. Spend some time scrolling through these until you find the one that best fits your concept. For our design, let’s select this crossed-sword logo, simply by clicking on the thumbnail once.

Update selected shape
Choose a new shape from the options on the right side to start customizing.

As you can see, the new image appears in the design preview in the middle. It looks great and seems like a perfect fit for the fantasy football team name. 

3. Update the Text Placeholders

Next up, let’s replace the placeholder team name with our own team name, the Seattle Sabres. To do this, just click in the title box on the left side and type "Seattle." Then, in the subtitle box below, type "Sabres." We can also change the font of the team name to change up the look and feel of the entire logo. 

Simply click on the font chooser as shown, and explore the wide variety of fonts available in Placeit. When you find one you like, click to select it. Placeit will preview the new result and will automatically scale the other elements of the football team logo to maintain their size and shape.

4. Adjust the Color Choices

Okay, things are looking great. But now let’s say that the default colors here in the football logo generator aren’t in line with our branding. Suppose our team colors are orange and black. 

Fortunately, this is amazingly easy to change thanks to Placeit’s powerful logo creator. To begin, click on the color chooser in the title placeholder box. With it open as you see here, click on one of the orange squares to apply that color to the Seattle title.

Adjust colors
Match the logo colors to your selected color palette using the selections below the text boxes.

To wrap up, we’ll repeat these steps for the other four color elements. Let’s make the subtitle white, and then switch to the right side to edit the colors of the full logo. We’ll apply the title’s shade of orange to the Accent Color as well, followed by swapping the Main Color to black. And finally, go ahead and remove the background of the logo by changing it to solid white.

Logo design with colors changed

Boom. In just a few clicks, the Placeit fantasy football logo maker has given us a fabulous custom football crest that’s ready to use. As you can see, we’ve transformed a default logo template into a clean and completely new logo for our fantasy team. Of course, we can make additional changes simply by repeating the steps we’ve just discussed.
