The Oregon Premier League was established in 2006 to help encourage and grow youth soccer in Oregon. As the non-profit organization began to experience growth of their own, they recognized the need for a cohesive identity that could go out ahead of them spreading awareness and recognition.
At RARE, our prime objective with any logo it to see it take on a life of its own, to incorporate heritage, geography, and mission in a singular mark. With the Oregon Premier League, soccer was obviously a huge piece of that picture. And because of their association with the Portland Timbers, we utilized the color scheme that’s synonymous with both the team and the region to communicate a strong sense of place.
Arming the organization with a means to spread their borders and reach more soccer teams, players, and patrons was the first order of business… and with that taken care of, the games can begin!
