At the very beginning, I sketched the logo trying to be original and creative, so, the ball to symbolise sports, Germany flag (in a way that it holds the ball properly which refers to hosting the EURO professionally ) The smallest part in my logo design is the Parallel Diagonal lines and they mean order and to empasize on sense of action, excitement movement
Please describe the creative approach you took to your design
Minimalist approach is quite good for logos 'cause it make them appear in a way too simple but original ( hard to copy) and easy to remember .
Please explain how you incorporated the messages, values and mandatory elements outlined above into your design
Starting from sports, to Germany as the location, then to end up to the professional ability to host the EURO enthusiastically this ability is hidden but we can see it when we try to interprete the logo through the way the (dynamic) ball is caught by the flag, thus, it means the EURO is in safe hands , (for the drops they can be colored in other colors to mean different European countries)
Why should your design become the logo for the bidding phase?
As it is a competition, we hope all to win but the real winner must be original and creative then The message, it conveys, matches what the competition is looking for.
