  1. It is quality or "craft" by no means, but I like the taste and branding of Genesee Cream Ale.
  2. A Eugenio VĂ©lez sighting!
  3. Roman Mars (of 99% Invisible fame) did a flag-focused TED Talk about bad design, using the flags of San Francisco and Milwaukee.
  4. A lot of great stuff here. 1964, in particular, looks very realistic. My only criticism would be that a few of the typefaces seem a little anachronistic (like 1958 in particular).
  5. While it didn't quite read as Arirona to me, a lowercase script z is such a fun letter. Have the tail from the A go through the loop on the z!
  6. Hell, this WVU fan likes it, even. What I don't like are the numbers on the new uniforms. Even though it provides some consistency with the sleeve stripes, double outlines or separated outlines (where the first stroke is the same color as the background; I'm going to call it "separated" for simplicity's sake) are, 99% of the time, an awful idea. Plus, the numbers themselves are just oddly shaped. They kind of remind me of Tennessee's last Adidas numbers. Curved on the insides and straight-angled on the outsides. But my biggest gripe is the the total lack of striping consistency across the uniform. White stroke on a blue stripe on the helmet, separated strokes on the sleeves and numbers on the jersey, and then no stripes (???) on the pants. It'd help immensely if the pants had stripes to match the helmet (not unlike the previous version--not an exact match, but the same idea). It looks very disjointed. All they really had to do was just put stripes on the previous set and harmonize the golds a little. Old: Proposed:
  7. These are fun! I really like that fauxback you did for Carolina. I understand that you've completed the series already, but for future reference/suggestions: the lines on your template are a little distracting since they're so dark. Nice work, Mike.
  8. 1) These are a delight to look at. Very well executed. 2) Where'd you get that script you're using for the team names? Are you hand-lettering those?
  9. A couple other decent abbreviations that run in somewhat the same vein include BKLYN and MPLS. Pittsburgh is even abbreviated PGH sometimes. I feel like these abbreviations stem back to before there was a standardized way of abbreviating things for the Postal Service. For instance, one sees the PGH abbreviation a lot from like 1910s and 20s (when the H was added back to the end of the city's name).
  10. The sash needs to be flipped on the backs of the jerseys, unless you intend them not to be continuous from front to back. This thread is a lot of fun. As a matter of fact, this is the first thread I've ever subscribed to. Keep up the good work!
  11. I like the updates to the logo, but I think they're too subtle to really be noticed. I think if you were to marry the shape and line weights of the current logo with the old logo's simplicity, you'd really be on to something. As for the uniforms, they're certainly acceptable if not a little plain or underwhelming. If you're incorporating grey into the scheme, why not have grey pants for the road? The red helmet over a white jersey/white pants combination seems a little off balance. Grey pants would help that. I definitely prefer this look to what they currently wear though. All in all, solid.
  12. I'm not a branding expert or designer by trade, so I may be talking out of turn here: However, is it that you know it's Alabama because of the logo? Or do you know the logo because it's Alabama? I.e. Alabama can get away with having so many logos because it's such a popular entity in college sports (mostly football, I'd guess). While I agree with the general idea--baseball teams should look like baseball teams and not just buy into the college athletic program's overarching identity package--I don't necessarily think that having six different logos for just athletics would help out with the majority of schools.

    This wordmark reads as "PAMS."
  14. Man, the better the graphics get in Madden, the deeper the uncanny valley gets. Those player models look awful.
  15. I'm sorry if I missed an explanation on this earlier in the thread, but can someone explain KU's facemasks? They look like they're chrome red, but that they get more faded, or scraped up, or beat up the further down the facemask. So there's more silver showing on the bottom bar than across the top. Am I seeing that right? If so, is there any explanation for that?
