BREMERTON, WA—The Northwest Premier League (NWPL), a new adult elite amateur statewide women’s soccer competition, today reveals the league logo that will identify the circuit for the 2016 debut season and beyond.
The logo features a soccer player at center in front of the letters “N” and “W.” Accent touches include a compass pointing northwest and a secondary “W” for Washington hiding at the top of the giant “W.” The color scheme is green, silver and white.

The original concept was put together by NWPL Communications Director David Falk. “We wanted the color green to represent the Evergreen State. We liked the color silver (gray) as it represents speed and the opening of new doors that light the way to the future,” says Falk. The league will use the hashtag #FastForward on social media in 2016.
The logo was given its final professional appearance by graphic designer Brandon Sparks. Sparks took the original concept and gave it printer-friendly colors, while at the same time expanding on its themes with a compass mark and various word marks. He also refined the player silhouette that acts as the dynamic center of the logo. “I enjoyed helping in the process of developing these marks,” says Sparks. “I believe in the women’s game and it is nice to be able to help the league in this way. The strength of these designs is in the combination of colors, lines and ideas, and how they work together.”
The Northwest Premier League is organizing for a May 2016 kick off to its first season. The league is being founded to give more opportunities to female adult players in the Northwest to play elite, competitive, amateur soccer during the spring and summer.
Coming next the NWPL will reveal more about its organization and goals and then will follow with announcements of its founding member clubs.
