Midlife Mercenaries is a small gaming group comprised of middle-aged men who gather together to socialize and play select FPS video games like Destiny. While not mercenaries in the literal sense, they are an extremely helpful group that loves to teach others the basics of gaming and lead others through hard challenges. They are free for hire!
For their logo, they wanted something with a bold, military style feel but also wanted to avoid cliche's such as a shield or crossed weapons. I created their logo using a mirrored image with the letter M and added line breaks within the letters to create a unique optical illusion - do you see two M's, an X, a barricade, or something else? This multifaceted image clearly stands out against the back drop of a bold red stripe. Its a simple design that really makes an impact.
