We’re shameless bocce fans here at Quoin Central, and have been playing in the Portland Bocce League since 2009 (and our team silver-medaled in 2010!).

The league has reached an important stage of its development. It is becoming more competitive and wants to expand and project a strong, professional image.

The bocce ball looked like a rose to us, the symbol of Portland, so we added leaves and set it on an oyster-shell court. Red, green and white are the colors of Italy, the motherland of the sport. We also choose to believe that somewhere in the logo is the inspiration of the Modernist posters of 1920’s Italy.

In the coming months, the logo will be adapted and applied to the team web site, t-shirts, ball bags, announcements and posters.
