The challenge was to create a logographic while including the Initial S. I accomplished this by emphasizing one of the lions manes hair locks more predominantly than the others into the letterform of an S. This lion is the mascot for the Japanese baseball team the Seibu Lions. The incorporation of the fast moving baseball and the diamond in the back refers to the sport all the while using the teams home color scheme. 

The logo was then applied to a baseball cap to mimic an embroidered patch using photoshop.
