    Last October Ole Miss announced they would be replacing the Rebels mascot with a new Landsharks mascot (nickname is still the Rebels). Today the school showed off their new mascot, named Tony in memory of Tony Fein who created up the "Fins Up" gesture in 2008. Also new are tertiary logos featuring a combination of a fin and the state shape, a M-Shark, and a styled M. Further information & pictures can be seen at http://landsharkmascot.com/

    I think it's best to do it right before classes start. I'm sure the population of people on campus is highest during that week with family members moving their kids into the dorms. Foot traffic in the campus bookstore & other stores is always huge with everyone buying new books & merch. Release an exciting new logo and the apparel & novelties will fly off the shelves. Can't speak for UNLV on that one. Add on the fact that the new sport seasons are starting (football, volleyball, cross country, etc.) the school can update some of their uniforms over the summer rather than mid-season. There's plenty of schools have shown off their new logos in June & July but there's no games going on other than baseball/softball and very few people are on campus. The buzz can wear off quickly. That's my thought on that.

    Well, we're not quite a month into the 2018-2019 year and Division I schools don't rebrand much due to most of them having established brands. However here's a list of schools that have updated or refreshed in the year 2018: Georgia Tech - April 2018: Reduced the colors to 2, new wordmark ULM (Louisiana Monroe) - April 2018: New ULM Warhawk logo, updated head logo, new gold Oklahoma - April 2018: Refreshed OU logo, new font Purdue Fort Wayne - June 2018: Formerly IPFW, new name & logos due to split between Indiana U. & Purdue U. Stetson - May 2018: New brand Those are the major ones so far. We should be seeing more rebrands in August right before classes & the football season start.
  8. Don't these companies have minimums when placing orders? So what did you do with the other decals? I was able get a replica helmet for a cheap price and I want to paint it to my liking. However I want to put a different decal on each side but I don't want order 15+ of each due to minimums.

    College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I've been confused lately... Is Ohio State changing their colors to Grey & Scarlet?

    NFL “Gridiron Gals” Logos (27/32)

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.
