    NBA Changes 2018-19

    If this comes to pass, it makes me wonder if there would have been a different outcome to the Memphis Grizzlies/Express proposal if it was being decided today. (background: https://www.cbc.ca/sports/basketball/nba-rejects-memphis-express-moniker-1.278813)

    Syracuse Chiefs rebrand as Syracuse Mets

    Besides the awful logo (easily a contender for the worst in AAA and possibly all of the minors), this reaction from a local columnist and sports-talk host perfectly captures the massive downside of this team ditching its local identity and taking on the parent club's identity:

    Syracuse Chiefs rebrand as Syracuse Mets

    I was hoping they'd at least somewhat redeem this unfortunate idea of a name change with a good logo, but they totally Metsed this one up.
  4. Putting aside the, uh, merits, of this particular design, I do very much like that the Lakers seem to be taking the city edition gimmick and turning it into their own new tradition to honor past greats. I'm curious to see how they keep it going and represent guys like Kareem, Shaq, Jerry West, etc. visually in the future. And I'd like to see how other teams can use their city editions as more than just a cash grab, to do something unique to spotlight local or team history for a season.

    Fun With Flags!!!!

    If you're a vexillophile and an NBA fan, New Era's new Tip Off collection is for you: https://www.lids.com/search/nba tip off 59fifty Some of these turned out pretty well! Not sure how they decided whether to use city or state flags, I would've liked to see how some of the California teams in particular would've turned out with their city flags.

    College athletics identity changes 2018-19

    That's a shame. I've always felt like there was a strong marketing/recruiting opportunity for the Blackbirds in dropping or de-emphasizing the LIU and positioning themselves as just Brooklyn.

    The Nets have downgraded their baseline, getting rid of the nice subway mosaic in favor of a generic blocky, athletic typeface that isn't currently part of their identity: I liked the mosaic a lot, and I wish they had done more with it.
  8. The USL has announced a new structure, and unveiled branding for its tiers. Updated corporate logo: Championship (top-level league): League 1 (second-tier): League 2 (third-tier):

    Papa John(')s new logo

    Weird that they kept the slogan so prominent, or that they even kept it at all, if they're trying to wipe away any trace of their founder.

    Austin FC

    The sadly-soon-to-be-former Columbus Crew have unveiled their crest:

    This may or may not have implications for their branding, but Syracuse is expected to announce their next shoe/uniform/apparel deal this fall.
  12. I love the art deco look - perfect for Miami. The sun alternate on its own looks like a for-profit scam university logo or for-profit scam rehab center, so perfect for Florida, I guess? The name doesn't bother me too much; at this point, it's just 21st Century MLS. I'm curious to see how they'll abbreviate it. ICF Miami?
  13. Via UnderConsideration: OLD: NEW: https://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/archives/new_logo_and_identity_for_gb_basketball_by_mr_b_friends.php It's kind of amazing to me that they hadn't already had a design incorporating the Union Jack into the seams of the ball. I'd be curious to see how they execute this design in embroidery (coaches' polo shirts, etc.)

    2018/19 Soccer Kits

    If I didn't know better, I'd assume they'd been bought by City Football Group:
  15. Not only is it stale, it's not particularly Staten Islandy either. The Pizza Rat was such a uniquely subway phenomenon, and Staten Island, despite its MTA-administered railroad, does not share in the rest of the city's subway culture.
