    Thanks, NicDB. As stated above, there will be uniforms sometime next month.

    Thanks a lot, vtgco. I understand what you mean when you're talking about logos like this one being used at smaller sizes. But my reply to that is: so what? Logos aren't primarily designed to look good or great at small or tiny sizes. They're primarily designed to look good at bigger sizes, namely on courts or fields, on uniforms, clothes, merchandise, during animated graphics on television, in printed publications like sports magazines or books, etc. The most important technical requirement on a logo is its easy reproducibility at smaller sizes, but not really if a logo still looks good or great when it's for instance printed or displayed on a device in a microscopic size, as it was depicted in your post. I chose this size of the squares in that checkered pattern for one reason: it's eventually the cleanest look, since most squares, white and black, inside that quarter oval are completely visible, instead of being covered by the navy seam lines, to eventually end up with too many tiny spots of white or black left, which would clutter up the overall look. A basketball inside the "P" wouldn't look good, since the letter is a square blockletter with a checkered pattern, but the ball is round. To me, that'd be a no-go. It doesn't harmonize. Thanks a lot, SplashBoogie. 1) I tried to explain to @vtgco why the checkered flag pattern looks like that. 2) Nope – not in my case. Motion lines are ALWAYS behind the object, means that motion lines also somehow represent the past if you will. A drawn flying plane has its motion lines always behind the wings, behind the tail section. My Pacers-P initial logo moves from right to left, with motion lines behind it, to its right. The Lakers primary logo for example has its motion lines to the letter's left, since the "LAKERS" wordmark moves from left to right in front of a stagnant basketball. About the color silver: I chose to not drop it, since I also as a consequence had to drop the whole ABA basketball idea (three colors – white, blue, red). Since the checkered parts also include white, I had to stick to silver in order to eventually have three colors – gold, checkered, silver. Why not navy? It just doesn't look good at all to use navy for that basketball. Plus, it's somehow apposite to the Indy/motorsports theme, since silver is comparable to chrome.

    A complete set of uniforms, plus court design, will follow in July.

    I have done that before. The "B" looks terribly distorted and almost like an "8".

    I don't need to try it, since you wouldn't recognize the logo as "SF" anymore. You're mistakenly taking the outlined "S" and "F" for three-dimensional letters, which they're not. That's why I'm saying that both letters are on one level, regardless whether the one letter has outlines crossing the other letter or not. The only three-dimensional part of my logo is the three-dimensional "shadow" behind/underneath the initials.

    Thanks, WavePunter/tigers. I haven't tried that out because I wanted to avoid just that. In my design, both letters are on the same level, while in the original logo the "S" is placed on top of the "F".

    Wouldn't look good at all, and it wouldn't really make sense, since the logo will be placed on a metallic gold helmet anyway. Compared to a dark gold outline, it very likely would look better with a white border – at least on helmets.

    Draft B | Use of current shade of darker scarlet and no drop shadows Draft C | Use of lighter shade of scarlet and gold 3-D drop shadows

    Thanks, HRC4. I don't know what display device you're using when looking at my logo, since cell phones have never been the most reliable device when it's about correct color display in general. The color contrast, as it is displayed on my calibrated computer screen, is perfectly fine. I could even remove the black drop shadow without reducing it too much. Thanks, Jake3.roo. My drop shadows aren't two- but three-dimensional, plus the font's outline is now gold instead of black. In terms of the use of drop shadows, I think you can't compare the two designs anymore, since the original logo has initials that are outlined in black AND have that very superfluous, outdated 2-D drop shadow of the same coloration, while my logo uses a 3-D drop shadow in black to enhance color contrast. What I'm trying to say is that my drop shadows, whether you like or hate them, at least make a lot more sense than the one that's being used in the original mark which looks just tacky and absolutely superfluous. However, I will post one or two drafts that I have in mind right now.

    Thanks, Heitert. Much appreciated. Yet, I don't see any (striking) similarity between my logo and any Burger King mark between 1957 and now. You have a point about the Dairy Queen's logo shape, but Burger King and its round edges typo and two-line lettering?

    NFL | Cleveland Browns Primary Logo Rebrand

    Thanks, Zeus89725. That's exactly what I wanted to achieve, namely a simplistic identity for a team that most of the time has been having the most simplistic identity of all NFL teams, the only team in the NFL for many decades without a helmet logo up to this day.

    This logo would not be on the Browns helmet. It would just replace their awkward helmet logo.

    Thanks, panthers2012. Even if they win another championship, there are no footballs with nine laces...
