  1. OAC Redesign - BW, Wilmington, and Muskingum! (D3 Football)

    Dang that's a great logo for the Crusaders, and the way you nested the U and the N for Ohio Northern looks really good. Fellow D3er here from Minnesota, Macalester '16. Always nice to see something different on the boards, especially smaller schools like this! Looking forward to seeing what else you come up with for the OAC
  2. Land of 10,000 Concepts (But Probably Less)

    I made some changes. 1) Thinner T's 2) Hopefully resolved the "Twims" issue 3) Smaller cap logos 4) Red bills 5) M hat relegated to alternate As always, let me know what changes should be made. Or shower me with praise.
  3. Land of 10,000 Concepts (But Probably Less)

    Thanks for everybody's comments and thoughts! This is my first real baseball concept, so I'm glad it got a good response and some suggestions that will be helpful moving forward. Honestly, I almost certainly will not be doing the rest of the league. I lack the free time and the effort for it, and I don't really have many ideas for other teams. I'm probably just going to sandbox Twins concepts and maybe some other stuff. I appreciate your interest though! I can see that, and could thin up the T a little bit. I ran into some problems making the logo because unless you're working with the Twins' flatter wishbone C, the interlocking gets really sloppy when the letters are similar sizes. This also emphasizes the T in Twins a little bit more versus the C, which makes sense because that's what they're named. May I ask for some clarification as to what about it doesn't work? I personally think the Twins should have both an M and TC cap, and I liked the tie-in to the Millers M. I could probably just limit it to the navy alternate, though. As I mentioned in the OP, the font is meant to evoke the flour and railroad industries in the Twin Cities, which are what helped the area rise to prominence. Below is one example of this: Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu Okay, I guess I can kind of see that. I constructed the Twins script directly from the Minnesota one, just making the line weights equal. What change would you suggest to remedy this? Thanks for the compliments. It is entirely possible that I made the cap logos a little on the large size and can fix that going forward.
  4. As a native Minnesotan, I usually get a little disappointed or dismayed by the Twins concepts I see on the forum. Their identity always seems like a bit of an afterthought, often subject to a recolor so as to differentiate the Twins from a myriad of RWB teams in the league. Instead of taking this approach, I wanted to work (for the most part) with the existing color scheme whilst drawing from the team's history. With that in mind, I reintroduced light blue into the color scheme. While light blue was restricted to their road uniforms in an era when several teams were using it for their road uniforms, this historical precedence combined with the fact the state's name literally means "sky-tinted water" makes it a suitable vehicle for setting them apart from teams with similar colorways. This addition of light blue spells the end for Kasota gold. I didn't necessarily hate its addition a few years ago, but its application was unsuccessful and does not fit with the light blue. One of the more popular changes for posters is to correct the inconsistencies between the team's wordmarks. I decided to follow suit, but took a decidedly different approach. The result applies the Minnesota Wild script to the Twins, using a Tuscan-esque font that takes cues from the area's history as a railroad and flour milling hub. The TC logo follows suit, and I put an M back on the away cap. Here, it calls back to the successful minor league Minneapolis Millers. Lastly, Minnie and Paul are updated with the new colors and wordmark as well as altering the state outline to be more geographically accurate. It is promoted to the primary, replacing the squad's generic baseball roundel. Got all that? Good. Now look at it. Let me know what you think. I also have a decidedly modern take on the Twins that I will post sometime in the coming week. Take care.
  5. Professional Kübb League (Updates and Expansion)

    So in lieu of doing more important things, I made some updates to the league. 1) I was never satisfied with Saint Paul's look. The logo now conveys more motion, and the jerseys now have a chevron design in reference to the flying V patterns used by geese when traveling. 2) Milwaukee's strange-looking diamond logo is replaced by something more rounded and reminiscent of a beer label. I don't know why I didn't think of this before; it just makes so much sense. 3) Des Moines replaces their blue jersey with an orange one. They're the only team in the league (for now) with orange in the color scheme, so I felt they could really own that color. With a name like the Dragons, a fiery orange makes a good deal of sense. 4) The league will also expand to twelve teams, expanding into the Chicago, Duluth, Fargo-Moorhead, and Omaha markets. These markets beat out proposals from Appleton, Cedar Rapids, the Quad Cities, Rockford, Saint Cloud, and Sioux Falls. Here's an updated league map. Be sure to keep an eye out for Chicago, Duluth, Fargo-Moorhead, and Omaha. In the meantime, let me know what you think of the updates to Saint Paul, Milwaukee, and Des Moines (I know the Saint Paul logo is still pretty blobby)
  6. Fixing the Tennessee Titans

    The light blue outlines on the TV numbers bleed into the gray yoke too much. They would benefit from a different colored outline or no outline at all. Additionally, the red plumage from a "titan helmet" really throws off the color balance of the rest of the uniform. There's this massive shot of red on the helmet, but practically nonexistent in the rest of the uniform. To remedy these two problems, I would probably go with red outlines on the numbers instead of light blue.
  7. EVERYONE KNOWS YOU CAN'T HAVE THE PATRIOTS WITH A WHITE HELMET BECAUSE THEN EVERYONE IN THEIR ARBITRARILY DECIDED UPON DIVISION WILL HAVE WHITE HELMETS AND IT'S WRITTEN IN THE NFL CONSTITUTION OR SOMETHING THAT THAT CAN'T HAPPEN WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!? AND HOW DARE YOU GET RID OF THE ALL-RED AWAY AND THE GRAY PANTS ON THE GIANTS? TRADITION!!!!! AND CAN SOMEONE FIX MY CAPS LOCK?
  8. No leghorn; I need the unaltered uniforms of yore injected directly into my veins to get my nostalgia-induced happiness. The uniforms of my generation are aesthetic pedestals not to be corrupted by modernity in any way, shape, or form.
  9. The Battle of Seattle

    That looks so much better than the secondary you had. Only thing I have to say is some Memphis Grizzlies/Toronto Blue Jays split numerals would really tie the set together.
  10. Tennessee Titans Logo Proposal: New Helmet Options

    But pi's like, a Greek letter man, and the Titans are, like, Greek too, so it works. Yeah, I can't unsee it. Should probably clean that up. The flames on the T looks a little strange too, like they're at a weird angle.
  11. NBA 90s series(Milwuakee Bucks Posted)

    Fi-YES-ta.
  12. I've never liked the two different sets of numbers for the Vikings, so I would fix that if I was in your shoes. I can't really complain about anything else you've done, though.
  13. LOGOLYMPIAD 2017 - Event 5 Voting

    11 6 10
  14. Let the Logolympiad Portfolios Begin! (Event 4 Added)

    Cool. Here's event 4: I got skunked. Goose egged. I'm not too mad about this, because there was some amazing competition in this event (as has been for every event thus far), but it's a little frustrating because I thought this was a pretty solid wordmark (maybe the points at the end of the E were the problem?). Oh well, that's what alcohol is for I guess Tell me what you think and provide some ideas to improve upon it.
  15. Let the Logolympiad Portfolios Begin! (Event 4 Added)

    The original read as DuKes to me, so it's really just paying homage to that. I probably could have made it more of a descender though, and as soon as Logolympiad concludes I'll go back and rework some of my entries. Any additional comments before Event 4 voting concludes tomorrow?
