  1. You need to improve a few things before you will get more C&C. Your hand drawn designs need to be cleaner. Right now they look sloppy and juvenile. It takes high skill level to pull off crayon. Maybe try colored pencils for more precision. The sizing of your lettering and numbering is inconsistent and doesn't match the sizing of real soccer jerseys. Maybe use a template that is larger, where one jersey fills a complete piece of paper. Hand drawn doesn't need to be perfect, but they need to show appropriate amounts of time and effort were taken. Presentation matters no matter if it is hand drawn or computer drawn. Keep working at it. Improve your presentation and you will start getting that C&C you want.

  3. I would think the owners would have enough money and creativity to design their own tree logo rather than use an exact copy of Stanford's tree, and the wordmark font is a little underwhelming considering it is 2030.
  4. Your cannon is missing an axel and frame. The barrel appears to be floating between the wheels.
  5. Simplify the ball. You do not need the outlines around the "white hexagons" part of the ball. (example: Colorado Rapids logo, New York Red Bulls logo). Choice C is a good design, but the red and blue are causing vibration. Add a thin white stroke on THUNDER and remove the red stroke on the ball.
  6. It would help if you researched both club and international soccer (football) uniform trends over the last 5 or so years. Look at crests, design and color usage, crest/number size and placement, and sponsor logo size and placement. Once you design something that has met a high standard, shows that you have put in the time and effort, and looks like something a team would actually use, you will get a lot of helpful C and C from the community to make your design even better.
  7. Before you get serious about presenting designs or redesigns to schools you will have to give up PowerPoint and start designing with vector graphics software.
  8. The bolt gets lost in the overlap. Try adding a stroke around the L and then put it on the top layer.
  9. concept

    Two things stand out to me as being off: Inconsistent angles of the letters (L is normal - A is italicized), and the width of the vertical part of the L is not consistent with the height of the horizontal part of the L before it becomes the bolt (and thus also inconsistent with the thickness of the A).
  10. The issue I notice is the movement of "LA" is left to right, but the bolt's moving right to left.
  11. Two things that stand out for me with the wordmark are the W and the rest of the letters are not consistent in style (block serif vs. spike serif). It almost looks like you used 3 different fonts. The best example is the W and the V, they should almost look the same yet the tops of the letters are completely different. The other thing is the kerning of the letters. Look at the spacing between the A and V, L and Y, L and V, compared to the rest of the mark.
  12. The new grey face with the shading looks great. Wow! The "new" pointy part of the stroke where the nostril use to be needs to be moved down and left, so it is not pointing up. This will make the bottom of the nose more horizontal (I'd go with a slight negative slope {algebra} there rather then horizontal), and the upper lip closer to vertical (not vertical though). I hope you can understand what I mean.
  13. This is such an improvement. 3 things stick out at me: 1) The nostril is huge and it draws my eye's attention away from the amazing headdress. I seems very round for a side view of a face and it overlaps the upper lip (where a mustache would grow). Go with a more short-wide elliptical shape that stops at the bottom edge of the white part of the bottom of the nose. 2) The eye area. I can t put my finger on it, but the shape and shading doesn't feel natural to me. Too sharp and the lines are very straight where I would expect curves. 3) Think about a light grey skin tone rather than white. Maybe swap the skin color (grey) and the feather color (white).
  14. I really like the idea of your concept. I think you need to make the "bird" part of your logo more recognizable. Other than a beak, it is hard to tell the features are of a bird. Did you use a reference image? There is a lot of detail in the flames and very little detail in the bird. You need to balance that out. Bigger bolder flames (fewer) representing feathers and more facial structure of a bird. The line work is still very thin and you are using too many outlines. Go with one thick outline and one thinner outline. 6 colors is a lot since none are for shading or highlights/lowlights. I'd try to narrow that down to 3 or 4.
  15. The claim of poor alignment in the tweet is false. The top two guidelines were drawn in the wrong location. Look more closely. Use a simple geometric transformation and slide the lower portion of the bolt (the part with tip) vertically until the top and bottom edge aligns with the remaning portion of the bolt. The edges align perfectly straight! Also the botton guideline is parallel to the bottom of the A, and the top edge of the bolt is parallel to the top of both the L and A. When you realize this... It is quite a good logo.
