  1. NFL “Gridiron Gals” Logos (25/32)

    My take on C&C for Atlanta: The body, arms, face, and hair are all great. It's that thing on the top that is difficult to identity with. Perhaps you have a photo of your inspiration. I think the A could look more like the A in the team's wordmark. Considering the primary logo is shaped like a 'F' is that something you could work towards as well? That part may be difficult. Outside that, amazing work. Your innovation and research has us all excited, much appreciated.
  2. infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL Week 3

    While watching the Raiders at Redskins game, apart from the great uniforms, I noticed the towels more than usual. Why don't they make the towel ends striped or splattered to stimulate the outer feathers of the logo?
  3. Central College - new logo

    Here's the additional logo the school added that's in the article: Want to add that it's nice to see a new identity added to the branding. It would have been common for Central College to rebrand to the C with no additional elements. It's also more common lately for schools to drop mascot logos altogether; Eastern Kentucky is a great example that only identities by the E and EKU marks, they dropped the Colonel logo completely.
  4. Graphic Design Projects

    On UAB's helmet the dragon should be facing forward. It seems odd to me that the 3 PM is larger than the date next to do it, just my opinion. I do agree with MontyK17's thoughts.
  5. Colonial Athletic Association logo

    While we're on the subject of conference logos: Division I: Horizon League - I believe secondary is now Primary, can't find up-to-date guide Division II: Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference needs updated Division III: American Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA) starts up Sept 1, needs to be added Great South Athletic Conference needs moved to Past section Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference needs updated New England Football Conference is now the Commonwealth Coast Football as of 2017
  6. Starting a design company

    I'm no way qualified to answer this but first thing that came to mind my is ask these questions to an already established design company. At some point they were in your steps. I'm sure they would be happy to answer your questions about getting started.
  7. 2017/18 Schedule Posters

    I've been a big fan of Troy's. Love the row of helmets but dislike the sponsors below it.
  8. ACAA Conference Logo

    Thank you for sharing, I've been wondering if there would be a new conference logo. Here's a better image of what the conference looks like from a current project of mine. Mills is the lone school in California. FYI This conference somewhat replaces the recently defunct Great South Athletic Conference (GSAC) that fell apart in their later years.
  9. Forgotten Secondary Logos

    Just like in the picture WSU151 attached, it's used for football. Rarely, rarely is it used on merchandise.
  10. NCAA Division I map

    Wow, I am actually working on this exact same project right now. All I got left is the NE & east coast states. My difference is that all my states are white (i could change that) and I'm not allowing any overlapping. That gets really difficult for the major cities like Chicago, LA, and Houston. I do also have Hawaii & Alaska in the bottom left corner, scaled down, of course. As for the transiitioning teams, most of those are fully DI on July 1st this year so it's not far away. My biggest surprises with DI one is how close the schools are in Utah & Colorado and how many there are in North Carolina. After that I'm working on DII, DIII, NAIA, NJCAA, and the smaller associations. I'm going to try to get all of NCAA's logos on one map and then do all like 2000 logos on another. Cool to see someone else with the same mindset as me. Sure these have been done many times but it always cool to be able to make your own.
  11. Recently Tarleton State Texans & TexAnns of NCAA Division II touched up their identity. I've barely seen it anywhere but their university branding guide shows them: Row 1: Primary Row 2: Secondary Row 3: Secondary mark Row 4: Previous primary Nothing major, gave the usual touch up on the previous logo, now facing right. Seems like their T logo is unchanged and can be considered as a primary. Your thoughts?
  12. New Upper Iowa Peacocks Logo

    A little late to the party but here's all three versions on white background:
  13. Stranger Things Happen In March

    Thank you. I treated it like a second job working on it every night and for several weekends. I wanted to make sure I had the most accurate presentation I could make.
  14. Instead of making an 'unique' bracket for March Madness I decided to give a theme based on popular culture from the past year. Enter Stranger Things. All logos were used in 1983 which is the year of season 1. I took the time to research each school in advance by going through this website, digitized yearbooks, youtube games, and google searching. I believe this is about 96% accurate to 1983. "In reality NC State defeated Houston as a Cinderella team. That game is considered to be in the Top 5 of greatest finishes in the NCAA Tournament. The Final Four was hosted in Albuquerque, New Mexico and the tournament consisted of 52 teams. In the Upside Down, the tournament expanded to 68 teams and neither NC State or Houston qualified. How will the tournament fare this year? Will we see stranger things happen in March?"
  15. I've decided to go with the middle version. The color and style seems best for Gonzaga in the early '80s. Left side does have a Georgia vibe to and the right logo seems like little more late '80s and '90s until their current version. Thank you each for your input.
