    Misc. Highschool Logo Overhauls

    Hello to you all again! I’m pleased to announce that I am returning from a long hiatus from this site. I must admit that full time work has gotten the best of me, but recently I found a little down time to do some design work Now on to the concept. Recently, I decided to attempt to redesign an awful logo set that belongs to a local highschool, the Selinsgrove Seals. I’ve done these types of threads in the past, and hopefully, if I can find the time to do so, I might try to tackle some more local high schools. I might even take requests and do jersey overhauls as well. But for now, I will simply be presenting logos. Selingsgrove has about three logos they use the most, two for athletics, and one for the school in general. To start off, I did the school logo. Here is the original: I wanted to create a more original monogram. Looking at various seal silhouettes, I discovered by rotating a swimming seal by a few degrees, it looked like it formed the top curve of a “s”. So in my preliminary sketch, I took that idea and ran with it: My digital version didn’t change much from the sketch, I mainly just cleaned up the edges and tried to make the s ends match more evenly: Based on this logo, I also came up with these few logo/word mark combos: Now onto the sport logo overhaul. The Seals seem to alternate between these two options: In my opinion, neither of them look very seal like. The bottom one is almost reminiscent of a bird, at least that’s what I thought when I first saw it The main thing I wanted to bring out in my design was a clear seal likeness, or at least a better attempt at it. I also wanted to create a sleek, modern logo that would look good in multiple different applications. To save time, I created a logo progression chart to show my work from the sketch to the final concept: Throughout the process, I realized the head was a bit too catlike, and large (not thin enough) compared to my reference. So over time I tried to slim it down and adjust line weight. You’ll probably notice about half way through I adjusted the color scheme as well. I couldn’t find the right balance with trying to incorporate more red, so I reverted to a color scheme that was more similar to the original logo. In the end, here are the final results in application: Just to “seal” the set, I also came up with a quick color sheet: That’s all I have for now, my apologies for this novel of a post Your critiques/comments are welcome and appreciated.
  2. Aha, I see what you mean there Thank you, that's what I was going for! I didn't realize they had Madden for mac. That's cool though! Always glad to meet a fellow Madden player. Thank you, I'm glad to be back on it! I would certainly be happy to let you use the custom teams. The configuration/images for the custom teams are the same across all Madden PC platforms, so you should be able to get my images ingame no problem as long as you know how to do it. If you don't, I'd be willing to help you out. That's the idea Thank you, I'm glad you like them so much!

    I think it's about time this thread dedicated to updating logos got updated

    Excuse me, but where did you learn how to ask for favors ? No one, especially @ren69, is obligated to "do this" just because you want it done. People have lives you know, and jobs, and families, and whatever. You get my point. This thread has been kind of dead for a while too now, so I'm not sure if he'll get to it. Even if he does, you need to be patient and improve your attitude. Asking in the way you did makes people less inclined to do what you want. Heck, I know I wouldn't want to do it for you if you addressed me like that.

    Minnesota Vikings Concept: Playoff Beard Edition

    And just when you thought mcrosby’s Vikings logo couldn’t get any better, it did. Absolutely beautiful work.
  6. Boy, has it been a while since I last updated this. I'm proud to present the next team in this series, the Lions! (Or whatever you would choose to call them, considering there's already 1 Lions team in Madden ) I might have gone a little overboard with the shading, but overall, I'm really happy with how this one turned out. I've really been taking mental notes and looking at how some really great sports designers make their logos, and I've been trying to constantly improve my work. I feel like I'm getting a little better with each logo I put out I utilized every single color from the old lion's palette, while adding a darker blue outline to balance things out. Your critique/feedback/whatever is welcome!

    I'm so annoyed I haven't been able to get my stuff done in time to enter Oh well, I love seeing everyone else's work regardless. Congrats to the winners!
  8. Yes, everything is alright! I apologize for the wait, I've been busy with school and logolympiad, and needless to say this topic has kind of been on hold for a while. I'll have to start work on it again sometime soon, thank you for your patience

    Glendale Griffins (Improved Griffin! 11/28/17)

    Long time no post eh? Well I recently revisited this concept, and tried to implement the critique and improve the old griffin. So here's the old vs new! Basically I moved the wings up, tried to make the highlights uniform, and made the lines thicker and bolder. Let me know what you guys think!

    LOGOLYMPIAD 2017- EVENT 7 - Alternate Logo

    Would we be allowed to use a different shade of a color in the team's color scheme for highlighting/shadowing?

  12. Hey guys, I'm back with another topic! Recently I've been dabbling with photo editing and the whole shebang. I use PowerPoint and a site called fotor to do most of my adjustments. Anywho, I thought it would be neat to make game images that show the score of the game, and feature a player from the victorious team. I'll probably only do images from the NFL for now, but I might delve into other leagues in the future. Here's one I did of the Lion's (ridiculously close) game. Critique and requests are welcome! No guarantees I'll be able to get the game you want done, but I'll at least try. Also, if you request a game image like this, I need to know the score, and who won, etc. Thanks for viewing!
