  1. Bruins' Logolympiad Portfolio

    Adding to the slew of Logolympiad Portfolios with entries from my second year. C&C appreciated! Event 1 I was actually pretty happy I finished 5th with this logo, because seeing it along with all the other great entries I thought it seemed a little bare. I was excited about the shield morphing into football shape, but I never thought it looked quite right, there was just something off to me. Thoughts?
  2. I actually liked a lot of the elements you had here, but i just couldn't get past how bare the jerseys were. If you had added some kind of unique striping such as using the pattern of the steam, i think that would have made this stand out a little more. The logo however, although simple, was very commendable i thought.

    Thank you! I can see that, that would definitely take care of some of that awkward space where the blue streak abruptly ends. Thanks for not using a longer deliberation process! But I completely agree about the typeface, it does look very muddy where the full name is and that's why. I was never really in love with the font but I also didn't have any particular beefs with it, since I thought it looked very league logo-ish. I really liked it but i didn't love it, so I guess subliminally I knew that was the problem but couldn't put my finger on it. It could be, lol. But it was more supposed to be just combining the typical shield shape with the typical football shape. Thanks, man. Thought the exact same thing actually, but I kinda liked the way the colors looked in that way. Thank you for all the feedback on Event 1 guys! Event 2 So for Event 2 I was especially excited about what I could do with Mexico City out of the five city name options, because there is so much imagery and so many color schemes that are unique to Mexico. I decided to go with a Dia de los Muertos sugar skull theme, which in Spanish are called Calaveras. The colors were derived from the official color scheme of DDLM, and i tried to make the design feel as Mexican as possible, which is why I took the risk and put the iconic-ish flashy poncho pattern on the shoulders of the jerseys. Obviously, you guys got exactly what i was going for and I was shocked to see this afternoon that my entry had been voted 2nd! So with that, I'd love to hear any thoughts/C&C you guys have on this!
  5. HRC4's Logolympiad Portfolio

    Well said Bucknut, I think the thing that took away from this was that it felt so simple, in an unfinished sort of way. There's plenty of redeeming qualities here though, they just need to be fleshed out.

  7. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    "The Celtics still haven't beat a formidable opponent, they wont keep this up for long" "There's no way they'll be able to beat a team like the Warriors, let alone keep them under 100 points lol" "Charles Barkley makes good predictions." You were saying? This team may never lose again. like ever.

    It amazes me how 26 different logos for the same task can be SO diverse, its really inspiring! Great work to all who entered!

    Does does a partial logo count?
  10. LOGOLYMPIAD 2017 - EVENT 2 - Fantasy Team

    If we wanted to could we put an abbreviated city name on just the jerseys, akin to OKC on the thunder unis?
  11. NBA x NIKE (MAGIC AND SPURS added 11/19)

    That looks amazing, what an improvement! Love everything about it including the subtle highlights on the mountains. And I'm speechless over that Aurora Borealis uni. Wow.
  12. LOGOLYMPIAD 2017 - EVENT 1 - League Logo

    Are we allowed to shorten the full name in any way, such as Pro or Fed, or do we have to use the entire name?
  13. LOGOLYMPIAD 2017

    Yes!!! My life once again has meaning!
  14. NHL By Nike

    These look amazing! Pretty incredible how unique you were able to make a red and blue team too. One little blooper is the back shoulder piping on the storm jersey is white. Cant wait to see more!
  15. NFL “Gridiron Gals” Logos (25/32)

    Colts look good, although I agree with the two suggestions made above. Happy that a cowgirl was finally included! Can I insert one more comment about the bengals? Something that's kinda bugging me is that she's looking to her left on the right side of the pylon which would mean that she's either out of bounds or that the throw came from the sideline.
  16. NHL By Nike

    Oh, I am psyched for this series!!! Will be following closely. Calgary's fire.
  17. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    This has been absolutely perfect Jimmy. The Patriots-Chiefs, Bears-Packers, and Browns-Ravens matchups are drool-worthy. Definitely one of the best uniform series I've ever seen!
  18. NHL Double Series (Lightning added)

    Oh, that new look set is killer. Love the logo and the nameplate touch especially.
  19. Weirdest Jerseys

    I think the best part of this picture is the guy standing there on the right. Looks like a, well...

  21. Austin Bats NBA 2K logo

    Good start for sure, but definitely could use a few adjustments. For starters I like the overall shape of the wings, although the tip of the left side wing shouldn't break from the curve like it does. Other than that they look pretty good. The biggest thing this is begging for is more white or maybe light, light silver cause there's some muddling happening. TBH I don't really think this needs the charcoal at all, the bat would look just as good purple with white/silver highlights and maybe a white/silver outline while you're at it. But if you'd like to keep the gray, I would still advise an outline. One thing I think you nailed is the head, esp. the ears, but I'd like to see a little more pronounced chin. Other than that I see no problems with the body but if you could kind of curve the legs a little more along the curvature of the ball, that would really help with any 3D awkwardness. Lastly, all I can advise for the highlights is to reference pictures for actual bat anatomy and go from there, as long as you keep them to a minimum like you did here. This has the potential to be a real solid icon with some tweaking.
  22. The Motion W that never was.

    Belongs in a Wendy's commercial, nowhere else.
  23. I am personally fascinated by what's going on in Minor League Baseball right now, and the majority of that is due to Brandiose's reign of two-word nickname, food logo, baby cake of terror, which to be honest hasn't been all bad imo. There are things happening down in the MiLB that wouldn't have been dreamed of 20 or so years ago, and its like watching a blowout: Painful, but fun to watch it go down. So i got to thinking, with news of Brandiose sinking its toes into the minor league hockey pool, how long is it before they get their hands on the major leagues? Now if (when) in eventuality they do, they won't come at it with a Jumbo Shrimp ideal, but for fun, I'd like to think of what would happen if they did. So I'll be taking a TBD select number of teams from the MLB and making them look like they belong in the International League, starting with the Oakland Swingin' A's (Athletics).
  24. They were supposed to just represent where more jerseys could be, instead of leaving that whole section blank or rearranging based on number each time.
