    Interesting topic. In regards to the OP's original reference to the "flying elvis" as facing forward and appearing "correct", as opposed to a word mark such as "Pitt" appearing "wrong", because the "P" is near the front of the helmet on one side, and on the other the "t" is closest to the front. Think about it in terms of the decal sheets for helmets. Other than the Pittsburgh Steelers, every NFL team that uses decals has a set of two, one for each side of the helmet. Teams that have directionally-oriented helmets would have two different decals-- often mirror images of each other (think Lions, Dolphins, Broncos), while other teams have two copies of the same logo (think Saints, Cowboys, Bears). In the NFL, twenty of the 31 teams that have side decals that would be considered directionally-oriented; thus they are in the majority and lend a basis to his observation that such logos look "right". What's interesting is that the example of one helmet logo that he gives that appears "wrong"-- Pitt-- is a college team. A quick and dirty analysis of six college conference helmets reveals the complete opposite of the situation in the NFL: in college, a rather small minority of teams have helmet decals that are "directionally oriented": ACC: 1 out of 14 AAC: 3 out of 10 Big 10: 2 out of 14 (3 out of 14 when Mich. State uses the Spartan helmet instead of the "S") Big 12: 3 out of 10 PAC 12: 4 out of 12 SEC: 2 out of 14 A lot of this difference comes because colleges have an overwhelming tendency to use letters and wordmarks as helmet decals, as opposed to the NFL where graphic elements predominate. Thus, whether or not something appears "wrong" or "correct" may have more to do with which type of football you are more prone to watching.

    So glad everything was able to come together the way it did. It was great to reconnect with old friends and to finally get the opportunity to hang out with such cool and talented people. Can't wait for Creative South and WMC next year… It could be like the Expendables of sports design. Speaking of which, I was kinda like BA Baracus this weekend, but instead of a black van, it was a white Chevy Equinox… " I love it when a plan comes together."

    Great hangin' this weekend fellas! Definitely should do this more often. Had a really great group... I would encourage you guys to hit Creative South in Columbus in April. I'm sure Joe, Fraser and Uncle Todd Radom will be there. I certainly will be. Thanks for driving us around Kris!

    That may be true, but there's also a strong "kiddie" stigma attached to the Disney name. I can tell you that as a longtime fan of Nintendo, a company with similar "family friendly" stigma issues despite putting out quality games time and time again. Yup. I thought the in-universe reason for the team using the NHL Ducks jerseys was more to do with Han's substitute brother creating a new logo and uniform to unite the "old Ducks" (the remains of the first movie cast) and the "new Ducks" (new D2 characters) under a new banner. I also assumed that in-universe the NHL Ducks were founded after the events of D2. Even then the new kids being excited about being the Ducks doesn't make a lot of sense, and neither do the other things, but, whatever. It's still not as blatantly obvious or corporate as any of the other proposed Mighty Ducks logos. I think, had any of those been used, we wouldn't even be talking about the Ducks having throwback nights or using the old logo as a shoulder patch, unless Disney had a handshake agreement like they do with Oregon. Speaking of which, why is it that it's perfectly OK for the Oregon Ducks to outright use Donald as a logo and mascot, but it's apparently not when the Anaheim Ducks use a logo and mascot that vaguely resembles Donald? Generally speaking I think fans tend to prefer their team's coloured jerseys, or seeing their team's colours on the ice. Then again there's also the appeal in seeing all the different opposing teams colours instead of another white jersey every game. I'm happy either way, but the current set up makes it easier to introduce team coloured third jerseys and throwbacks. So for now, at least, that's my preference.

    When did we establish "Warning points", and how do I acquire all of them? What's the limit before suspensions/banishment? What gets you warning points? Do I carry my high school diploma around? What do you do with your hair? What happens if there's inclement weather? Where do you - What do you wear? Can you wash your clothes in the dishwasher?

    Why is it so hard for people to get one color logos right?!? Dark areas stay darker no matter the colors!

    Sorry, crash, but I need to share the fantastic overhead goal by Christian Ramirez from Saturday night. That kid's got a bright future, I think.

    A complete departure from the other concepts. An interesting attempt, but I still didn't feel it.

    Can we start a drinking game based upon how many times Gooner says your name? In all seriousness, this thread has been an absolute pleasure to look at. The Barbados crest is probably my second favourite to Saint Kitts. The hoops for the Bajans work very well. It's always fun to see concepts for teams that you just don't get concepts for all that often. Of the 9 left, they all look like they're full of opportunity. Can't wait for Angullia. Bring on the dolphin!

    Wow. Why not send them to jail or execute them too. I think people are taking this thing a little too seriously. In the heyday of the forums, there was no "high council" and it worked fine. There was no problems with Logolympiad, Iron Crossovers, etc. anyone with more than x number of posts or that's been a member for a year should have enough common sense to run a contest.

    But borrowing the word "ski" from Sioux language and bastardizing it by adding "U-Mah" to make it rhyme with "rah rah rah" isn't an honor, is it? NCAA, where are you?????Except that ski-u, ski-oo, or ski-yoo arent Sioux words for victory either but was used as exclamation after winning a canoe race against Minnesota that the captain heard and then added mah to rhyme with rah.http://www1.umn.edu/twincities/traditions/Minnesota's own web site proudly lists this "Sioux" word along with an explanation for its origin. If the NCAA can put the hammer down on William & Mary for previously using a feather in its school logo, surely this must raise a few eyebrows. So the same school that has asked the Redskins not to wear their uniform at their stadium is now using a Native American word on their helmet. Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?

    YES! I absolutely think this was the best design on a helmet UAB wore in recent years. I also wish Maryland wouldn't have totally dumped the "Terps" helmets. I wish they would have alternated the colors of the helmet though. Maybe a black helmet with the "Terps" in red with a white outline would have looked sharp!

    I know this is titled 2015 MLB All Star Game Logo, but I'm excited for 2016 because it's more than likely the 2016 All Star Game will take place in Baltimore. The logo will probably include the Warehouse somewhere in it and the HR Derby jerseys will probably be orange & black. (Didn't know where to put this)

    Not everyone can hate it. If everyone liked the same things, the world would be a boring place. I just want to mention that in case anyone doesn't know, on Sunday, the BC Lions will be wearing their Gun-Metal Grey Signature Jersey while the Toronto Argonauts will be wearing their white Signature Jersey.

    It's never really bothered me too much. Except for the instances where you have text in a logo and have to mess everything up so that the text reads the right way like the Ravens' helmets.

    Because they obviously don't think wearing alternate helmets is important enough to go to that much trouble. Most of the world does not frequent this website, and would think that our obsessions with these things are pretty silly.
