    2020 Election Logos/Branding Thread

    Ojeda's logo has nice bones, but the distressed stuff is very, eh, tacky. Tulsi's is the clear winner.
  3. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/supreme-court/supreme-court-allows-sports-betting-across-country-n868956 The U.S. Supreme Court acted Monday to bust Nevada's monopoly on legal sports betting, allowing more states to get in on the action and reap the tax benefits. The court struck down a federal law that required states to ban gambling on the outcome of sporting events. The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act was highly unusual: it did not ban sports gambling nationwide as a matter of federal law, but it said the states were not allowed to permit it.

  6. https://blog.stephenwolfram.com/2018/12/the-story-of-spikey/ For a number of years I've worked for Wolfram Research, and their logo is pretty neato: The rhombic hexecontahedron (gesundheit) has a bit of a storied nature to it, well beyond our company. This blog entry by our owner is very well done, and an interesting look into how a company came up with and embraced a logo.
  7. BACK OF BRAIN: "You know this is going to be some god-awful concept-come-to-life, like the team brass google image searched 'NY JETS CONCEPT' and one addled dope fell in love with xXx69COD-cuck69xXx's jersey concept for Madden 2017 and now suddenly wants to make it the brand, in spite of everyone telling him not to." HOPE: "Oh c'mon now. The Jets can't screw this up. There's a lot of good places to start from here, and with the simple color scheme it won't b-" BACK OF BRAIN: "Black. There's going to be black and you know it. Lots and lots of black. Like LA Clippers amounts of unnecessary black." HOPE: "That was a freak accident. Didn't you see the video? There was green!" BACK OF BRAIN: "Yeah, but it was very green, wasn't it? Like neon green, yeah?" HOPE: "Well sure, but that fits the-" BACK OF BRAIN: "It's going to suck, Andy. The whole world will see it, and the worst part is?....people will love it. You snobs will turn up your noses at how ugly it is, but dumbass tweens will think it's the coolest uniform EVAR, and pay $2.99 DLC to get it into the latest editions of Madden; their parents will shell out millions to buy them the latest uniforms so that their little darlings can dress like embarrassing futuristic Nike abortions for years to come!" HOPE: "NO. THE JAGS. THE JAGS GOT IT MOSTLY RIGHT. TH-THE VIKINGS! EVEN THE BROWNS ARE WORKING ON SOMETHING DIFFERENT, THERE'S-" BACK OF BRAIN: *douses hope in a chloroform rag*

    Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    Seattle Sockeyes? I mean I get it, it's a regional fish, but that brand feels minor league.

    2019 MLB Changes

    As much as it pains me to say, that's a beautiful uniform.

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    I personally dig this quite a bit. The home look is very strong, and if anything I feel like the Miami script across the chest should be bigger, bolder. Same with the admittedly half-interesting numerals. Road grays are alright, but there's very few road looks in MLB that look good (IMHO). The main weakness is the blue alt. It needs, and I mean needs red in there. Whether it's some kind of loud sleeve patch, a chest stripe, or as part of the chest emblem, it's lacking. Otherwise this is good. Well done, Marlins.

    Could we get a thread merge, mods?

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    What I don't like about this, which admittedly isn't much, is that the Marlins identity is completely forgotten. They're going full culture/flavor, which is wonderful, but it's like...why not just rebrand?

    2018-19 NHL Season

    This is what bums me out primarily about this whole thing. Barry Smith finally getting his seat at the adults table with a direct line to Stan Bowman stinks like hell. If he's there to give Colliton some guidance, whatever, but I get more of babysitter vibe. A lot of band-aid ripping off still to be done, primarily in regards to purging themselves of the albatross contracts left and right and letting their 33-year-old coach work with a big pile of 20-somethings while they salvage whatever's left of their system. This is where it'd be pretty interesting if you had guys like Dano and Hartman along with Panarin, Leddy, Kevin Hayes, Schmaltz, DeBrincat, etc, and going balls-out with speed and athleticism. Instead the bulk of the roster is essentially one giant pile of dead flesh that needs to be sloughed off, hoping you haven't ruined the shiny young talent that would still remain. Who knows.

    Blackhawks fired Joel Quenneville today. Writing was kind of on the wall, but meh. Bowman's show now. *hurls sarcastic confetti*

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    The matchup that got me into the NBA, during the fading twilight of Jordan going against the thorn in everybody's side in Reggie Miller. Two of my favorite uniforms of all time in one shot. The 90s NBA in general holds a wealth of nostalgia for me, but I won't post a ton of pics. Just a few.

    Agh, let's not be too generous here.

    New Animal Planet Logo

    I like it, generally. It kind of looks like a cradle about to fall off the crest of a waterfall, a flourishing wave of Captain Hook's arm, or an eyebrow with a massive bead of sweat forming above it. It's an upgrade.
