  3. Deciding what should be important to other people is what's "utter nonsense". Please explain to me how an appealing visual presentation is less adult than "city pride"... just typing those words made me feel 12.

  4. some are more sensitive to the appearence of the world than others. thats why we have artists and designers. or musicians, chefs, and poets. but it's human nature to judge our surroundings by appearence. you wouldn't eat a black banana or drink yellow water right? every color, shape, sound, and taste around us forces us to make a judgement on it. this includes packaging at the grocery store, the clothes we buy, and even uniforms which are designed not inly for recognition and distinction, but to make the wearer feel good and prideful- or sometimes invinsible and brave. all that happens with shape and color

  5. But proper ownership and the NHL tend not to go hand-in-hand. The guy who bought the Lightning for next to nothing is considered one of the greatest men who ever lived just because he didn't leverage the team for a real-estate scheme or turn out to live in his car.

  6. I'm gonna rip into this one. I apologize in advance. First off, I understand you're new here. We all make mistakes. But you need to post a concept with your original post. Some of us read the rules, others learn the hard way. Obviously, you decided to pull a 180 in an 'Oh! You caught me!' kind of sense, but that doesn't make it any better. I'd advise reading the rules before you make any more mistakes. Next, I'm gonna criticize the logo. I know you're probably a beginner, and hell, I know my initial logos were terrible too, but I wish someone had told me how to fix them. What you need to do is choose a more unique font. Anybody can find the same font and produce the same thing. I also think there needs to be more spacing between the letters in 'FHL', less space inbetween the 'Since 2017' and 'FHL', and a more unique shield. I found that exact shield in Google right here. I know it seems like the easier thing to do, but be unique. Building on that 'be unique' idea, you need to differentiate yourself from everybody else. A better name, a better logo, and something that doesn't seem bland and generic would help you out. Something I've learned is not to pump out designs just because you need to. Get inspired, and go from there. Make some sketches, scan the paper, and trace over it in whatever program you're using. Anything to get a good idea from your head to the screen. Lastly, a non-logo related thing. Why the hell did you put a hockey team in Phoenix, New Orleans, and Las Vegas instead of Denver? I know I only had to list one team to replace, but all three of those are cities in which hockey cannot survive. That's all. I know it seemed rough, but don't let this hurt your graphic design career. I got all this too when I started, and I continued. I'm nowhere near professional, but I've grown a lot. Stick with it if you love it.

  8. The Reds from Cincinnati have one of those classic marks with a very high recognition value. However, the black 3-D shadows the club has added when they rebranded back in 1999 are very outdated. Therefore, they had to go – plus my mark now got a slightly thicker outline.

  10. Can we stop with the best/worst threads. We don't need one for every specific thing. It feels like every time I get on here there is a new one. These threads do nothing other than allows people to circle jerk over each other's opinions.

  11. People are seriously pissed at NE? Really? It was the :censored:ing 32nd pick in the draft. That means literally every team besides dummy Minnesota could have had him. Even a top 2nd rounder may have gotten it done if a few days ago. Quit with this juvenile jealousy over NE. Your team just didn't want him as much.

  19. As for the logo, I like it. Work on the weights of all part of the letters, and I like the mountain idea. However, it feels a bit forced. I'd suggest trying to make the letters mesh into the mountain, or try to make letters part of a new mountain design.

  20. These aren't particularly "rare" pictures, but if anyone isn't familiar with the ABA, check out the saga of the Baltimore Claws, as told by Remember the ABA. These are the only two known photographs of a Baltimore Claws game - the Claws (essentially a relocation of the Memphis Sounds) only played three exhibition games in 1976 before folding. Check out how the sewn-on "Claws" nameplate doesn't quite match the rest of the jersey (sweat?). It's not like the team was made up of scrubs either - #9 on the Claws in both pictures is HOFer Mel Daniels! Someone, somewhere, has more pictures. I think they'd be fun to see.

  26. Kansas City Twisters Unveil Logo, Uniforms http://phlnetwork.blogspot.ca/ On September 13, 1988, the first day of the PHL pre-season, the expansion Kansas City Twisters unveiled their Logo and Uniforms in front of 12,000 fans in downtown Kansas City. The logo features a stylized swirling tornado with the initials "KC" inside it with the name "Twisters running up the side of it in the team colors of Black, Blue, and Silver. "This is a very exciting day for our franchise" said owner Ken Milliken. "Our team finally has an identity and we're very happy with it, and I think our fans our excited about it as well." Twisters Jerseys did indeed prove to be very popular with the fans, as retailers sold out in just a few hours. The Twisters' expansion cousins, the Miami Stingrays, are not expected to unveil their logo until the early summer of 1989. Both teams will begin play in October, 1989.

  30. Well, for what it's worth I've never seen Kabel as a 70's or 80's font at all, but instead more as a 20's/30's, pre-Depression and Depression-era font - that's when it was invented*, after all, and that's precisely why, just as an example, the board game Monopoly uses it for all of its branding. And on that note, now that it's been almost a full season, I think I've settled on my opinion about the Leafs rebranding: I don't really like it at all. I'll concede that the logo's a slight upgrade - though I'll probably always prefer the simpler, modernised-without-being-outrageous Kabel leaf I grew up with - but the uniforms are just bland. To me it's like they took the old jersey template, one that itself was already a throwback to the 50's, and got almost every aspect of it - the new, only-slightly stylised font, every set of stripes except the arms, the shoulder patches - wrong. It's like, the team has new management that's heavy on tradition, so they tried to bring tradition to something that largely already was very traditional, and they botched it as a result. All they really needed to do was put the new leaf on the existing jerseys and it would've looked great. But evidently that wouldn't have sold as well, which I guess brings us to the worst-case scenario of modern uniform design, doesn't it? A great uniform design is shelved for being too similar to past sets, in favour of something very similar; not as good but just different enough that it'll sell better with fans. * - in fact, doing some slight research, I found that Kabel was first released in 1927 - the same year the St. Patricks renamed themselves the Maple Leafs. So, that font's actually as old as the team name itself!

  33. I'll say what I've been saying for years. With proper ownership, and a little winning, any metro area of 2 million or more, in the US could work, for the NHL. Some places are going to be more of a fight. Some places can sustain bad, mismanaged teams, but "non-traditional" markets NEED to be well managed, if they want a chance. The Coyotes' problem is two-fold. Their team is poorly managed, which would make it a struggle anywhere in the metro area. Take a struggling team, put them on the outskirts of town, and you're compounding your problem. Phoenix is an area that could have worked, but it hasn't. It still could work, but that's incredibly unlikely. I want to see the Coyotes succeed, for three reasons. I live in Tucson, where their affiliate is. I am dating a die-hard 'yotes fan, and their continued existence allows me to go see my team once or twice, a year, without turning it into a big trip. Objectively, though, it's probably time to pull up stakes and move.

  34. No, I think Boston's logo is much better with the serifs lining up with the spokes. The stick-in-rink can't be saved; there's nothing to save.

  38. Cooks is going to be the next Jerry Rice. I saw the guy play live in college and had pretty high hopes for him with the Saints. He's quick, explosive, has good hands, and is a great route runner. Now that he's been stroked by the hand of God he'll end up being a Hall of Famer.
