    Baseball League

    Get rid of those superthick outlines on your template. They're really cluttering what we can see.

    And one of their all-time greats was Japanese.

    Holiday Logos - New Years

    The firework clock is ingenious. Unfortunately, the only association I make with NY is New York. NYE is more what I think of for New Year's Eve.

    Help with ideas for my league

    I don't think you're going to get much support here for asking people to come up with your ideas for you; it's not really what the community has been built on. What I can tell you is what I use to help me generate ideas for leagues. 1) Lists of cities. This could be a list of the largest cities, the largest metropolitan areas, or any of a number of things. One league I've been working on off and on, I only took cities ranked #50 to #100 to create a minor league. 2) Maps. Getting an idea of where cities are relative to each other will help you put together realistic divisions. 3) Wikipedia and websites about cities. Reading about the history and culture of a place will give you tons of ideas for realistic names for a team. 4) This list here, from right on the boards. A great resource for after you've exhausted the above list. I hope this all helps--good luck!

    Holiday Logos - New Years

    That red arc in the C has a small problem--it has the tiniest bit poking out at the bottom. It would be cleaner to either extend it or not show it at all.

    Townball II: The Holy Land

    With the right program, you could kern the text to get around that. There's an awful lot of space around that alef that doesn't need to be there and would buy you that space you need. Seeing as it looks like you're using Paint, I recommend typing each letter individually, rather than in a text block, so you can kern by hand.

    Hockey Concepts

    Diagonal text across a horizontal stripe looks really awkward.

    Townball II: The Holy Land

    Think about how the text comes across the seams of the jersey. Here, it would be easier to reproduce in fabric if you just put Be'er on one side of the button placket and Sheva on the other.

    NHL Seattle Concepts

    I disagree with the above poster 100%. It's a great tie-in to the city, which it seems logos emphasize more these days, and its flow lends itself well to many applications that fit Seattle--nautical, aeronautic, Art Deco. Keep up the great work!

    CFL Atlantic Schooners

    Of all of the color schemes, I prefer the originality of the grey in the first post.
  11. Finally got it to work, and voted. Hoping you get it. Though, now that I think about it, that kid's monogram isn't half-bad.
  12. I see the poll but I don't see anything to click for a vote.
  13. I went to the link and couldn't see how to vote. Is it perhaps blocked outside of Canada? It's absurd you're not in first.

    Sun League - A Floridian Baseball Branding Project

    I can't believe this series is already over. It's brilliant.
  15. I want to like Chicago, but between the color scheme and the logo silhouette, I just think John Deere.

    Seattle Emeralds NHL Concept

    I can't help but see Michigan State.

    Sun League - A Floridian Baseball Branding Project

    The full-body stegosaurus is fantastic and it would be great to see it appear in the uniforms. I don't understand what is going on with the heel of the sock.

    I was a kid just south of Indianapolis when all of this went down. Brings back a nice little bit of my childhood. Thank you.

    La Liga Rebrand

    Great start on the La Liga logo, a great update of the current logo. The lines are a little wonky on the soccer ball, which throws off the radial symmetry. For the Bilbao logo, the stretches on the text feel like WordArt. Be sure that you're doing more than just typing, and kern the letters individually. The doubled lines on the river really throw my eyes, and are too fine for shrinking the logo down; I'd simplify that part of the logo a bit.

    DC Baseball - Nationals alt concept

    Democratic blue and Republican red, but still. This logo has been developing very well.

    DC Baseball - Nationals alt concept

    All but one image on Page 3 shows up as deleted on my end. Maybe there's a weird bug?

    DC Baseball - Nationals alt concept

    Why do you delete all the previous pictures? It takes away a lot of the meaning of the thread because then people can't follow the progress of the concept.

    Bigred's CFL (Victoria added)

    RedBlacks should wear that home jersey now.

    Jacksonville Jaguars logo and wordmark concept

    I'm never a fan of zombie eyes, but beyond that, this does a great job of combining the old and new, picking the best elements from a franchise whose design history is very hit-and-miss.
