  1. Better than the Vikings' ship, which only looks like a ship if seen from around Lake Street and I-55.
  2. Circular Brackets

    Black and/or red for 23 years in a row. Hm, you think maybe that's why Vegas went with their jersey color?
  3. NHL March Madness - Final(ly) Matchup Posted!

    Blues barely edges out because of the Arch reference. Fantastic series; kudos.
  4. Seattle Seals And Krakens

    What if, in Kraken 1, you moved the body of the kraken to the center of the logo, make it the star, maybe have some of the tentacles wrap around some helm handles.
  5. Seattle Seals And Krakens

    Seals 1: The sense of motion is a good starting point, but the animal looks more like a fish than a seal. I'd rely heavily on reference photos. Maintain a consistent line style--some of the linework towards the bottom looks very shaky. Build your forms from shapes rather than drawn lines. Seals 2: These seals look better, but there is something almost psychedelic about the whole logo that completely does not work. Simplify, simplify, simplify. Kraken 1: This one has the most potential of the bunch. Ditch the textures, the gradient, and maybe even the skyline. Do something to the kraken so it looks like something more than just an octopus. The helm is missing a handle in the upper right. Kraken 2. Overly detailed, especially the tentacles, which also seem to be coming from multiple animals. Gradients are not your friend. The S doesn't look like it relates to the rest of the logo--in color, style, and linework.

  7. I like the color balance of B better.
  8. Okay. All that said, I do still really like B. There's an unexpected whimsy that I appreciate. It makes me think vaguely of Astérix.
  9. A is unavoidably too close to expansion-era Senators. C borders on Vegas Knights. D has too much dead negative space. So that leaves B for me.

    The way the V and I merge together in the primary logo makes it look like the Cyrillic letter И.
  11. MLS | Houston Dynamo Logo Update

    Photobucket has changed their image-sharing policies in the year since this was posted.
  12. Random Cincinnati Reds Concepts (fixed)

    It's not just a personal preference--it holds much closer to the conventions of baseball.
  13. Random Cincinnati Reds Concepts (fixed)

    It's more your choice of font with regard to this application. They currently do it with a plainer font, and without a large wordmark across the front of the uniform.
  14. Random Cincinnati Reds Concepts (fixed)

    Using the same font for wordmark and name and number looks awkward.
  15. 3 is by far the best. Of the rest, I like 2 best.
