  1. Now I want someone to make the "Kentucky Spelunkers"
  2. hettinger_rl's Logolympiad Entry Feedback

    I did vote for one of these (the Sockeyes) and not the other (PFF). The League Logo was the PFF one, and honestly, it got lost in the group of logos that all used the RWB scheme. However, I don't know if the different color scheme would've set it apart in a way that would've garnered more votes. I like the color scheme you chose for the Sockeyes more than the Sonics scheme. And, again, I did vote this in my top 3. It was a good identity, it has a unique uniform without being "gimmicky". I think a red uniform might've been a touch better, if only so the striping on the side matched the fish in the logo.

  4. SuperSamNaj's Logolympiad Design

    Honestly, I really liked this one. The secondary logo on the shorts looks great with the striping, the script is nice. I'm not a huge fan of the drop shadow on sports numbers, but that's my personal preference. I think you could've cleaned up your presentation, as your white jersey does blend into the background a bit.

    I also didn't get the poncho reference, but my lack of vote came from the "MXC" on it. I prefer to see the team name (Calaveras in this case) on the home uniform, and I needed to nit-pick a bit to get those final 3.
  6. Steelman's Logolympiad Portfolio

    I think this logo was a classic case of not knowing what the designer was going for. Without knowing, this looks like a shadow of a classic dome to me. And that's what knocked it down in my case. If I see a dome, I don't think of a specific sport, and definitely not football (I'm from Green Bay, I want my football outside).
  7. SSmith48's Logolympiad Portfolio

    I don't dislike this, but what I think would've helped would've been something to make the words/acronym a part of the logo, and not just added underneath the logo.
  8. Bucknut42's Logolympiad Designs

    And it's exactly those details which make the Logolympiad so hard in and of itself. You added a nice detail, that does help the design with the subtle touch.
  9. lightning25's Logolympiad Portfolio

    I didn't dislike this, but one critique I had was "Aquilas". In Spanish, eagle is "Aguila", aquila would be Latin. Not a knock on the design, of course. As for the design, it found to be solid, but unspectacular. It's a good set for a throwback with how the striping looks, at least to me. So I think what would've helped is a more modern take on a uniform.
  10. HRC4's Logolympiad Portfolio

    I think it was just a bit too simple, and the shorts were a negative for me. I didn't like that they had both the lightning bolt and the back panel. But that was just my personal preference.

  12. Bruins' Logolympiad Portfolio

    Yeah, this was good. What I didn't like was the football itself. The way it looks to me looks more like beach ball panels on a football.

  14. Bucknut42's Logolympiad Designs

    This logo was a very good start to exactly what you wanted, something unique. As @Whittier S said, the lack of beveling anywhere else hindered it. Had there been beveling on the stars/outline, the logo would've looked complete. I'm not a huge fan of the font, because of the way the "F" looks by itself, but I did like the bisecting line in the middle of the acronym's letters.
  15. And also, Balu the Bare's Logolympiad Portfolio!

    I liked the use of the football player on the left in the oval, and alone, was a nice image. My problem with this logo was the blue block with the league name/acronym in them. I feel that had you extended the white outside the oval to make a border on that it would've helped. And I wasn't a fan of the blue on the left not being consistent through the oval (it's definitely narrower in the middle than the top and bottom).
  16. For me, it was the PFF in the laces that was the biggest drawback. This is was to be used as the primary logo for the league, and the league acronym blends in too much. Although the second logo with the full league name is better, it still isn't something I'd expect to be used as a league logo.
  17. HRC4's Logolympiad Portfolio

    I did like the logo a lot, I had it in my top 6. I cut this from my votes because I felt it was unnecessarily busy. With the star, lines and words, I didn't know what the focus was.
  18. I assume they have a mule as a mascot, whether it be a real mule or a costumed mascot.
  19. Portland Sasquatches. Leprechauns (there's a legend about them associated with the Mill Ends Park). Cascades (after the Cascadia region) Atlanta Generals. Cavalry. If the NFL is in your universe, they jump on a loose connection to the Falcons with the "Dirty Birds".
  20. I am attached to the Oakland Squirrels, but overall, it's your story to tell. I mean, why would a successful team like the Condors or Brawlers move?

  24. Ty Mueller is young, 25, brash and cocky and very wealthy. He founded the leading search engine and email provider, Cerca (think current Google). He's not afraid of risks, but also know that you have to cater to your customers (or fans in this case). Ty makes a big deal out of this, making a video featuring his choices, being presented by the Cerca ferrett mascot, Nexus. His choices: 1) Memphis - a fan base that wants hockey, close enough to form a rivalry with St. Louis. The risk of not having an arena already is outweighed by the chance to be THE biggest ticket in town. 2) Portland - Fans in place, rivalries available with Seattle, Vancouver and the Nuggets in the Bay Area.
  25. If we're not going exclusive with video games, there should be plenty of options. I remember having a John Elway football on the NES (hot garbage), and Joe Montana football on the Genesis (better, but still not good). So there should be a few games out there with signature players. Maybe instead of John Madden, EA in this universe has Willie Krause Football?
