  1. College Football Circle Logos

    I like the updates to the Vandy logo, much improved!
  2. College Football Circle Logos

    It's a fun exercise, but seems a little backwards to try and shoe horn existing logos into a circle shape. As you continue, I'd use the circle as a guide, but don't let it restrict you. Don't be afraid to think outside the ring if you will. As for the Vanderbilt logo, I think you're on to something here. A couple suggestions that could help refine: 1) It looks like you've used different spacing between the letters of "Vanderbilt University" and "Commodores". Even those out so they match. Maybe use the star on each side to provide separation between the two lines of text. 2) The Est. 1873 text is just too small. If it doesn't fit bigger there, either move it or lose it. 3) The big white V seems a little forced. I'd see what it looks like as a background element or try to fully integrate it into the anchor (bottom of the anchor is already kinda v-shaped). Anyways, good start, would love to see it refined!
  3. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I think it could easily be interpreted as a raindrop, which is equally or even more appropriate.

    Noah still trying to figure out the proper way to shoot a basketball... 😂

    Yeahhhh, um...?
  7. Lights Out's NBA 2017: What-If? Dallas Express (p. 4)

    Looks great! Like the slightly updated lowercase font. I just really, really, really want that gray to be gone from the team's scheme. Also the little pinwheel on the rip city shorts may be more effective as a waist band logo.
  8. Toronto Raptors rebrand

    If Nike takes over as the league's supplier when Adidas' contract runs out, would you fear the Blazers getting the typical PNW Nike treatment? EDIT: just noticed your avatar - and being in Oregon, I'm guessing you might have some level of affiliation with Nike. I just meant that as the possibility of a more drastic rebrand. I'm not affiliated in Nike in anyway, don't worry. And no, I wouldn't fear the Blazers getting the Nike treatment. I think Nike tends to be pretty respectful of traditional logos and uniforms that deserve it. I'm ready for a new look for the Blazers, I think they're currently looking a little dated, but I can't imagine a world where the pinwheel stopped being used. My personal appreciation towards logos tends towards toward simplicity (hence why I'm proud to wear any of the 3 logos in my signature), and in uniforms I appreciate originality and attention to detail. The Portland/Oregon teams tend to do that pretty well so I feel like I lucked out as a fan. This Tortonto mess isn't as bad as the Clippers mess, but jesus, neither are good. Sigh. It is not surprising that a team like Toronto is still trying to find a look that really sticks, and I support them rebranding. But this is just all wrong.
  9. Toronto Raptors rebrand

    Everytime an NBA team rebrands, I thank God I'm a Trail Blazers fan. The pinwheel is perfect.

    Have no fear! It appears that there are yellow swooshes on Oregon's socks. That's some school colors!

    These were interesting last night.
  12. NBA Changes 2013-14 Season

    Glad to see that. As soon as I saw them last year I thought "they woulda nailed it with white numbers". They also tweaked the shorts striping slightly. I'm not sure that was necessary. The white stripe looks like it awkwardly curves back towards the front of the shorts now. http://iama.slideshowpro.com/albums/011/928/album-402020/cache/173143120_10.sjpg_534_800_1_100_1_49_21.sjpg?1373328217
  13. Why does it matter? This smells like having rules to just have rules. If Iowa thought having "Street" on their jerseys was a fitting tribute, who is the NCAA to say it is not? The NCAA just put their own unwillingness to do their own job in front of a well intended tribute for a local family and former athlete. Baloney.

    In short, yes it is, but these in particular I don't find to look unfinished. It's a different way of finishing the trim, but it's still finished. It's just something we haven't seen yet. Might turn out to be an unfortunate experiment, or it may catch on. I guess we'll see. How legible will those numbers be from a distance? Haven't the Bulls done black numerals with white trim for nearly their entire existence? Yeah. The black numbers on red is probably the best thing about that jersey.

Its all good except for the black. White numbers/names/team would have made all the difference. Super quick mock-up:
