  2. NPSL | Virginia Beach City FC Rebrand

  3. MLB | Seattle Mariners Rebrand

    Thanks, eastmarkham. I did that redesign to declutter their current logo, so removing the stitches was necessary, since I didn't like to see anything covering the "S". Thanks, Sparky. I saw you got a "new" thread about Seattle's upcoming NHL expansion team. Just flipped through it and I like what I see there. I'll take a much closer look later on. Thanks, SplashBoogie. I would rather say that my mark looks pretty much like the design style of the Houston Astros or the Los Angeles Angels primary marks (stroke width, beveling, angular shape). When I look at all those MiLB logos, most of them, 75-80%, have a cartoonish look (with much thicker strokes compared to my logo), because it's a league for the young and the young at heart, while the rest of the marks is mostly regular, mediocre stuff, which isn't even typical for MiLB or any other league.
  4. MLB | Chicago Cubs Primary Logo Update

    The Chicago Cubs circle logo is an iconic mark, iconic in its simplicity, so the change I made here is very subtle. Yet, I think it improves the overall look of it. The Cubs have been using an either custom-made font or some 1960's-1970's typeface for the letters "UBS" in their primary logo. I thought that replacing this very font with their current wordmark typeface, namely ITC Franklin Gothic, which the club has been using since 1937, would suit that mark even better. The typo is now rounder, and therefore harmonizes better with the equally round "C" and the blue outer circle, plus ITC Franklin Gothic Heavy also improves readability. Normally, one would update the wordmark by using the font of the primary. But in this case, it's also working vice versa, making the logo look even cleaner.

  5. MLB | Seattle Mariners Rebrand

    Thanks a lot, guys. There's a 50/50 chance I'll also make uniforms for this project. I think it looks subpar with these colors, but here it is.
  6. MLB | Seattle Mariners Rebrand

    A few days ago, I decided to once again rebrand the Seattle Mariners. My intention was to modernize and simplify those logos by decluttering the "S"-mark, which nowadays would very likely become the club's primary mark, while the roundel would either be dropped or would turn into a secondary/alternate logo. Biggest difference compared to the current mark is that Seattle's "S" is now in front of the compass rose and not partly covered by it anymore. The baseball is gone (to also declutter the overall look) and was replaced by a simple white circle with navy border, which could either come across as a very simplistic baseball, or a circle, which one can find in almost every compass rose. "Northwest Green" has been slightly modified and replaced with PANTONE 7717 C. This shade is a little more bluish and lighter than the current color. PANTONE 289 (navy) and PANTONE 877 C (metallic silver) are unmodified.

    I never said it's clever or brillant, but it was definitely intended, because the "F" can't eventually be overlooked. So it doesn't even matter a bit whether it was originally intended or not, simply because only the final product is important. And by saying that the "F" is "stupid and redundant" or "redundant and senseless", sorry, you just presented us your personal opinion! You could have said "I think, that it's stupid and redundant", but instead of that it just seemed you intended to present hard facts – which they are not. You might ask die-hard Falcons fans about their opinion and they might tell you that you have no idea what you're talking about, because they would say that this logo is smart, timeless and beautiful. And that's what I've read dozens of times on various sites yet. Opinions differ, yet they're just opinions. Falcons logo history: http://sportslogohistory.com/atlanta-falcons-primary-logo
  8. NFL Logos by MCrosby - PROJECT COMPLETE

    It was also designed for the use on helmets, but not exclusively! That's one reason why it looks like an F that's designed on purpose and not by accident. The fact that the logo is mirrored like most of the other team logos, doesn't mean that the designers had no ulterior motive.
  9. NFL Logos by MCrosby - PROJECT COMPLETE

    That's not really an argument, since most of the logos on helmets are mirrored, except for the ones that aren't stylized things or animals, like Green Bay's G. This Falcons logo, like every other logo, wasn't primarily designed for being displayed on a helmet, even though most people might think that. It's displayed on the field, various other times some place inside and outside the stadium, in newspapers and other print media, on the Internet, on television, etc. And of course they always use the regular version which also represents the letter F.
  10. NFL Logos by MCrosby - PROJECT COMPLETE

    Let's agree to disagree. When you look at all those NFL primary logos, only three include the team's name (Jets, Raiders and Steelers). So why should the "F" be redundant in the first place? Just because it's not representing the city's name? There's just that primary logo, that stylized falcon, no (complete) team name, like in the NBA. To me, it makes perfect sense. Without the "F", it would just be another bird logo.
  11. NFL Logos by MCrosby - PROJECT COMPLETE

    Nope, it's not. On the contrary! The guy(s) who designed that very logo years ago didn't create a falcon logo, that also looks like an "F", just by accident!
  12. NFL Logos by MCrosby - PROJECT COMPLETE

    I agree. I like their current logo so much, because it's also clearly an "F" (for Falcons). That very smart ambiguity almost completely gets lost due to the angle of the wings and because of the tail feathers, which I also find superfluous.

    I think the Liberty Bell doesn't work here, because it always looks forced, no matter how subtle or not it eventually will look.
  14. Thanks. Much appreciated. Details wouldn't disappear at all, firstly because the color contrast here is really high. Plus, the minimum line weight of this very badge, when being embroidered on a uniform, is 1.55 mm, so I'm still way over the minimum line weight recommended for embroidery, which is around 0.4 mm. And even when the chips are down, one could also slightly increase the line weight of the entire vector file before starting the embroidery process, just like they do it with almost all those detailed logos with finer line weights which get embroidered on hats or uniforms.
