    Memphis Grizzlies Unveil New Logos and Uniforms

    They're not immediately offensive but they certainly aren't classics either. I think the wordmarks are too small a font. It's sort of like the issue New Orleans have because of their long name, but it's unneccesary for Memphis. Mixed with the double blue colourway which makes good contrast really difficult, and it just looks boring and bland. I'd have preferred a more significant change.
  2. I love everything except the yellow piping on the cuffs. If that was w/p/w it would be perfect.

    Roger Williams University - New Logo

    It is bad. It looks like a first draft made by someone who is having their first go with the pen tool. Then the way it sits on the body is way, way off.

    2018/19 Soccer Kits

    Doesn't immediately read as a Manchester United kit. That's a bad screw up for one of the more iconic looks in football.

    MLS: Our Similar Logo is Just a Coincidence

    Agree. This is why it should be challenged. There might not be enough for a full on cease and desist but it should be challenged to protect the CCSLC brand and ensure that the site doesn't have problems trying to use it's own logo in the future.

    2018/19 Soccer Kits

    As a Villa fan i'm fascinated by this. Clearly fanatics have the facilities and to have someone in the fashion/apparel industry who is also a Villa fan as the principal designer is excellent. Looking forward to what they come up with.

    Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    Why do you get to decide what a number outline is for? Clearly in this case the uniform designer has decided to use a number outline in a different way. Uniforms aren't just flat colours on a screen, nor are they only viewed from a long distance. Texture is incredibly important, and this is designed as a detail that works close up but doesn't muddy the extremely clean overall look they've opted for. I'm neither here nor there on the set, they're very plain, but the outline is a perfectly good feature.

    I think the outline stitching being the same black as the jersey is a cool textural effect and will help the numbers pop. No idea why it would be considered such a faux pas

    NBA Changes 2017-18

    It was really disappointing as a Spurs fan to have Nike come in promising 4 uniforms and seeing the alts as the already well established grey and camo based alts. I'd love to see an alt based on the Gervin era unis with the huge San Antonio wordmark in black outlined in white.

    2017 Miami Dolphins Creative

    Great stuff here, I love the insight and I love the work you and your team do. Personally I follow all the Dolphins social media and I am consistently impressed by what you guys churn out. It's slick, it has that summery Miami feel, and it's always well executed. The content is terrific. When you switch to throwback mode the nostalgia hit is absolutely perfect. The off-field stuff is fresh and relevant. I really get that feel from the content that you're actively avoiding harking back to '72 or any sort of past glory and I think that's a terrific decision. Obviously the creative team can't control the onfield product, but we're incredibly well placed to take full advantage of any upswing in support from a successful season. The branding is perfect. I think the only real weak point from a visual perspective is the uniforms, and look, they aren't really even that weak. They were a strong upgrade on the previous set. They're just lacking a bit of character I guess.

    Owl Repurposed: Oldham Athletic Badge Redesign

    I don't think you can do an Owl for Leeds United. Sheffield Wednesday are known as the Owls and have an Owl on their logo, and are county rivals of Leeds

    The Worst Jersey Clash I've Ever Seen

    Cricket isn't such a big deal because nothing in the sport relies on you being able to tell a member of you team from the opposition. One team is batting and one team is fielding.

    NFL 2017 changes?

    That's fair. Overall I thought the Dolphins upgraded when they moved to their current set, it's clean and well on theme. It's hard not to get excited every time we see the throwback set though.

    I don't think you can use that particular Dolphins throwback logo full time in the modern era. However everything else about the design is so beautiful. The deep aqua and orange, the striping pattern which looks really slick on a modern cut football jersey. The socks. If I were building the next Dolphins set, i'd take the throwback jersey and socks as they are. I'd update the pants stripe to fit in better with the set, and i'd change the logo to something with a bit more character. The rest of it is perfection.

    I know we're 2 years into the throwbacks now, but god the Dolphins look so amazing in those throwbacks. You see heaps of them in the stands as well. Hopefully they go back to them full time before too long.
