    Are gradients allowed?

    The wordmark killed it for me. I can only see it as Isoto Pes.

    I'm assuming we can redesign the logo as a soccer crest, as long as the crest only appears on the kits and not as a separate entity within the file?

    The plane looks very birdlike to me.

    This was one of my top-3, and yet I didn't even notice the misspelling until today. That's because the naming, the branding, everything felt like an authentic Mexican team, rather than a gringo guesstimate at what Mexican branding would look like. For the record, Spanish √°guila derives from Latin aquila, which might be how you got confused. There is also a man named Aquila who who shows up several times in the Bible. Guess what his name means.

    This concept was a contender. The thing that really threw me was the relationship between the head and the neck. By total coincidence, I submitted a Louisville Stallions concept to Logolympiad about six years ago. This one's a lot better.

    It didn't get my vote because it felt too stereotypical, like what an American would think a Mexican franchise should look like, rather than how a Mexican would think a Mexican franchise would look like. That why I liked @lightning25's concept so much. The iconography looked like what I see when I am in Mexican-majority communities.

    One of my big problems with the NBA set is the wordmark. Typically, when creating a wordmark for a team, the name of the location is smaller than the name of the team, creating a visual hierarchy. Since you didn't do that, your wordmark felt unbalanced to me. Also, though the typeface fits the theme well, I don't think it works with all that arcing.

    Mine didn't have it, either, so. They do it as an international marketing strategy.

    I think they mean the rule that a primary logo include the name of the team.

    I think it was supposed to be a football in front of a shield. But the silhouette made me instantly think of a man wearing a tricorner hat, and I couldn't unsee that. I also don't think there's enough contrast between the shades of brown. I do, however, appreciate the palette overall as being more out-of-the-box. Green and brown go great together and is an underused palette.

    These are fantastic. And I would keep the 1972 for stylistic consistency.

    I don't know if I've seen her around lately, but if you didn't know, you can tag members in posts. @suplauren Did you know about this?
