  1. From 2011 I think? I have a t-shirt with this, and I've seen it circulate on Dan Quinn a few times.
  2. Hate to break it to you. but what I'm getting with this is design for some type of kids toy branding from 1989. Color scheme is rough and the nature of the rendering looks too much like an illustration. Between a "V" and a volcano there's no indication of Seattle.
  3. The only reason that card doesn't look terrible is because the glow from the lighting is drowning out the gold just enough that you're not processing it at first glance. If you looked at that picture without knowing the Rams were gold you'd have to look hard to notice it.
  4. I don't mind it. A lot of baseball scripts are not perfect or formulaic. I think that helps with the diversity. Don't be like the NFL and NBA and standardize logo type if you don't have to. I also find flawed scripts charming. It's just another baseball thing that's genuinely classic
  5. This is officially the Hawks primary logo, but you rarely see it. The team uses the bird-circle by itself in its web heading and most brand visuals across all platforms. Obviously they found out pretty quick that the red-white primary didn't go well with the tri-color scheme (it's honestly a bad brand identity overall).
  6. ATLUTD vs. NYCFC is my pick for best looking matchup of the season so far.
  7. Green flag could make a big difference here.
  8. Creativity is through the roof here, which is refreshing. I'm fond of all of these except the Warriors and Pelicans. Contrasting of two concepts in GSW it feels like, while the Pelicans feels a bit bland. That Knicks uniform is perfect.
  9. It feels like there have been less spring-time changes unveiled this year. I'm surprised considering how teams have become more open about equipment changes with social media. It used to be someone could have new gear and not a soul would see until August. But -- outside of Washington State, we didn't have any other official unveils did we?
  10. Hey guys -- It's been a while, concept forums wise. Between my current job (I'm now a resident of North Carolina!) and my new allotment of free time, I've hit a moment of great self-demanding when it comes to designing. I've always done it as a side hobby, but didn't take courses on it in college or receive any type of professional training. I've made many posts in the past on these boards using Inkscape, but feel like the industry demand if I want to grow is to switch to Illustrator and Photoshop. So my questions and concerns are: Should I feel strongly about basically re-training myself in Illustrator since it's the industry standard? Are there any designers who have made that type of switch? Does anyone actually prefer Inkscape? I'm so comfortable with it, but I do know it has limitations. This is a very open-ended discussion. Drop in advice, experiences, etc.
  11. ^Agreed. Monuments would be lame. I'd rather the Wizards return to a non red-white-blue color scheme and reimagine the Wizards identity.
  12. They actually did a red vs. black spring game in 2008
  13. Yep. I get up every Sunday at the crack of dawn to watch Premier League, but I can't organically build a fandom. I've always grown up cheering straight for home teams, so adopting at this point feels out of the question. I just really love watching it -- I HAVE to have it on in the morning, and if I don't wake up in time for the first match I'm mad at myself.
  14. This is good, but I want you to know that as a native Atlantan, I see the Thrashers logo in the detailing on top and can't usnee it.
  15. The Hawks' black jerseys look awful on TV because the numbers and NOBs are in different material -- while technically the same color, the numbers appear more of a golden color while the NOBs look bright green. So yeah, I'd say they are up there in the awful category. I'm not a big fan of their uniforms outside of the red alternates.
