    24/M looking for tips on freelancing

    I believe you may have actually dodged a bullet with the start-up. If you do leave a full time gig, keep in mind you’ll be finding/paying your own insurance. A lot of folks overlook that when going out on their own. They think they’ll just need to bring in something comparable to their previous salary to maintain a similar lifestyle. Best of luck to you!

    College athletics identity changes 2018-19

    GVSU fauxback night. I guess not technically a change, but for one night. https://gvsulakers.com/galleries/
  3. Ugh, I just got Badger jerseys for the youth basketball league I run. This is awful.

    Best Logo Refreshes

    Just an FYI, the NC State wolf mascot that you said you like, and the Bucky you loathe, were done by the same designer.

    I still can’t figure out how anyone wants the “Phoenix treatment”.

    Pretty accurate statement

    Did you ever take a shot at cleaning up the Shoremen character/mascot? I found my son’s old hoodie with him on it the other day.

    Classic/Traditional High School Football Uniforms

    Pretty cool as is. If they increased the line weight a bit, and cleaned up the shoulder/wing, it’d be really great.

    Do you happen to have a photo of the retro mascot on the helmet and sleeve? The helmet striping inconsistency has my OCD level rising.

    That’s not the actual update, but a filled in version of the previous. On the current, ST and TE do not touch.
  11. Not horrible, but nothing spectacular either. Kind of expected. I may pick one up if I can get it without the ASG patch.

    They wanted to keep the plume as is because of the “hidden” IWU.

    Introducing the Cedar Rapids River Blecch

    I didn’t say close the mouth, I said hinge properly.

    Introducing the Cedar Rapids River Blecch

    Agree with all that, and the jaw looks to be dropping instead of hinging.

    It might be easier just to tell you I’m an art director at Rickabaugh Graphics.

    Looks very familiar, but I can’t place it either. @WSU151

    Looks like a character from The Regular Show.

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    I miss the days of each team having unique warm-ups.
  21. I’d like to know where you’re getting this “factual” information from? Sure, I’d agree some folks think the inline type was simply “just filled in”, but if you put them side by side, the letters have been adjusted for clean legibility. Also, a white keyline strike was added to keep the colors consistant on apparel, etc. Previously, colors would change based on the garment.
  22. Born in ‘80, been an Indians fan my whole life. Always considered them navy with red accents until the move to Jacobs Field. With the switch to the then new Indians script that was heavy on the red, along with red stirrups and cleats changed my opinion. A few years later, navy was dominant again. I might be one of the few that liked the silver trim addition. Currently, I’d just call it a mess.

    What is the rarest color in sports?

    Muskingum University’s official colors are black and magenta. Athletics uses more of a red tone though.

    Shading won’t help polishing a turd.

    A little google-ing and it looks like they are using teal and black now.
