  1. The Battle of Seattle

    The Seattle Emeralds "Take me down to the Emerald City, Where the grass is green and the coffee's gritty..."...or something like that... Of course the "Emeralds" name comes from Seattle's alias of "Emerald City". Whenever I hear '(anything) city', I think of soccer or rugby, so I thought that I would give the Emerald City logo a bit of a soccer-crest vibe. I blended the letters "E" and "C" into an old-style monogram... For a secondary, I was looking for something that wasn't a gem-stone. I found an interesting guy who's a native of the Seattle area, and is bright green in colour. He's also an official critter of the state...The Pacific Tree Frog... So, here's what I'm thinking to use as my primary and secondary...

    I like what you did with Seattle! Enjoying the series!
  3. The Battle of Seattle

    You're right bro...It's close, but still needs some tweakin' ...I'll come back to it later. As far as the trident goes joe, the Mariners use an upside-down trident...different enough IMO. I read that part of the reason for the Mariners going with a different logo was that an upside-down trident was a symbol of bad luck ...maybe. As for the colours, I had a lot of requests to try the blue-green combo, so I did. I think that it can be pulled off to look un-similar enough, but I don't think you'd hear the end of it from Canucks' fans .

    Holy Crap!...Completely forgot the "Totems" logo...thanks BellaSpurs...I'll fix that.
  5. The Battle of Seattle

    Thanks Brian...I saw that colour scheme over in the Sports Logos section. I think that Thaumatrope posted this picture... You're right, it could look pretty good!...I think I'll give that a try with the next "Sockeyes" concept. Also, the "anchor" logo does look mis-matched as you mentioned. The trident symbol is strong enough on its own...Good advice. I've been staying away from the blue and green, only because the Canucks are just up the highway, sporting the same colours....But heck, the Pens and Bruins both rock the same colours, and I think if the blues and greens were 'reversed', there'd be enough of a difference...I gave it a shot... ya go... OK...I"ve got 6 primary logos finalized so far (the Sea Lions may end up being a different colour...I'll come back to them later). Before I move on to the 'Sockeyes', here's what I have so far...

    Thanks to all for the feedback...I'm trying to make this work without adding another key line or shield...keep it as simple as possible, so I've darkened the grey-green again...getting there, I think...

    I've always felt that the Mariners' logo was a little weak-looking...needed to muscle-up a bolder...and you've pulled it off nicely. It's got some punch to it now! Well done, Go!

    Man, I love this Newfoundland uni...It's got a bit of the "Jellybean Row" in it. Great work!...I wish I had this sweater a couple of weeks ago when I went to see Alan Doyle (formerly of Great Big Sea) at Massey Hall.
  9. Seattle Totems Expansion Concept

    Yes...with the white! They look great! I like your treatment of the collars.
  10. The Battle of Seattle

    I gave that a shot, darkp...
  11. The Battle of Seattle

    MSO...I made that template about 6 years ago, and man, has it served me well. A few times I've thought about putting it out there, but it's kinda become my signature, and, it's a little touchy...I've got to baby it a lot every time I use it....kinda like an old car. Thanks Zeus...the trident is such a cool shape...If the Seattle NHL team goes with some kind of nautical name they should incorporate it long as there's no confusion with the Mariners. I liked that grey-green colour too. It's a little harder to work in an extra colour on this logo without the shield part, and I think it's a cleaner logo without the shield. I'm working on putting that colour into the upcoming "Sockeyes" concept. I put a deer (buck) into the "Sawbucks" theme. A moose would be cool, but I don't know how I'd work one in right now...Maybe as a mascot? I had one more colour scheme to work into a uniform...the red/green/white combo of the old Metropolitans. I darkened up the green, went with a brackish red and a vintage white. I used a mostly red uni, to distance it from the current Wild uniforms, however, it still may be a little too similar to the Wild look...
  12. The Battle of Seattle

    I'm gonna stay with the mainly brown unis for now, but a light blue alt set with the light blue sweater and pants would look fantastic.
  13. The Battle of Seattle

    Thanks guys...The only problem with a black/teal-ish/ silver combo IS the similarity to the Sharks. They kinda own that...maybe if I made the blue darker?
  14. The Battle of Seattle

    Thanks C...The plaid thing has worked great for the Redblacks. They've taken something that already exists and is popular (red "flannel" plaid) and have kinda made it their own...Seattle could do the same thing with green, and if there's one place that could embrace plaid...It's Seattle, with its logging and grunge history.
