  1. 2012-13 NBA Logo & Uniform changes

    As they say, the devil is in the details. The Brooklyn jerseys are the only ones to feature a radial arch for the lettering. The side stripe features the same herringbone pattern as their court, which I think is a great detail. If the alternative is the Spurs' new jersey, I'll take these any day. Actually the Memphis Grizzlies, Toronto Raptors and Oklahoma City Thunder (and technically the San Antonio Spurs) feature radial arched lettering. Conrad beat me to it
  2. NASL's Minnesota Stars Now Minnesota United FC

    This is a great update. Well done!
  3. Uncommontaries: A RARE Design Blog

    Hey guys, just wanted to let y'all know that we've started up a blog called "Uncommontaries" (you know, because something rare is also something uncommon). We'll be doing some behind-the-scenes looks at some of our athletics (and non-athletics) work, as well as using the blog as a dumping ground for our thoughts on the design and branding world, and whatever other creative thing we happen to think of. www.uncommontaries.com I think it's great that there have been so many new blogs recently devoted to giving an inside look at sports branding (Plan B., Studio Simon). Hope y'all enjoy our entry! Ben
  4. Legal Question about Customization

    Conrad, check your PMs
  5. Does anyone know where this logo came from?

    I believe you are thinking of Torch Creative. www.torchcreative.com

    Sky , why did you dredge up that horrible "Masker" memory??? I was 12 at the time and I still remember the Mardi Gras mask "logo" in the paper. I recall that an old lady was the winning contestant who came up with that gem....... Hey, thanks for responding. Since someone else remembers it, I'm finally sure it wasn't just an awful nightmare brought on by eating an entire King Cake with a gallon of milk in a single afternoon. Count me in (not to mention a bunch of my budies who grew up in Metairie) as another remembering the name being announced as the Maskers. Most of us recall the late Hap Glaudi announcing the name on Channel 4 in his 'yat', stiff, jerky delivery: ...and the name of the team will be.... da Maskahs!!!" (the way he prounounced it , it sounded more like "Damascus". Seriously.) I think the city issued a collective cry of "WHAT?" upon hearing that... later, I heard the logo was to feature the comedy/tragedy mask set so prevalent in Mardi Gras themes, and someone joked that if the team won they would feature the comedy mask; if they lost, the tragedy mask... Luckily before the team ever took the field they were renamed the Pelicans, but as you mentioned they only lasted one season in the Superdome. (by the way, already had my slice of King Cake this morning in the office... and I didn't get the baby) Got my second baby in three years the other day As far as the logo is concerned, there is so much potential for a great logo in New Orleans culture, it's sad when it isn't met.
  7. Colleges with good Graphics Design programs

    Stay in-state. Go Aggies!
  8. The new logo looks nothing like Milton Berle. You're right, the hats are different.
  9. Possible inspiration?
  10. Who designed...

    c0nr4d Here's what I know: Hornets: Not sure on the rest, but at least the Fleur-de-bee logo was done by adidas. Suns: Not sure on the primary mark, but the PHX secondary was done by Campbell Fisher Design. http://www.thinkcfd.com/ Heat: I don't know who originally designed the Heat logo, but when it was updated in '99, that was done by Nike. And the new secondary was done by RARE Design.
  11. NCAA Bowl Games

    Navy (I can't vote for the Utes on anything) FAU USM (because of, among other things, the helmet lettering, although what you've got there is close to what they use but not quite)
  12. Ultimate NCAA Baseball Project

    I got your back. Here's another USU vote. Go Aggies!
  13. Special unis for LSU-Tulane game?

    Am I the only one here that thinks the pelican appears to be wearing a 50's styled wig (the light blue)?
  14. Gallaudet vs Utah St.

    This logo actually is not in use any more. It was designed by SME branding about ten years back but you really never see it around campus anymore. Now we use an atrociously boring U-State mark, as seen here.
  15. RARE Design

    I took a job at RARE a few months ago and just wanted to let everyone know that we finally have our web site up and running. www.raredesign.com Apparently it had been a while since it was up, but like I said we just redesigned it. Anyway, just thought it might be of interest to some. Ben
