    Really good design. The Houston one looks suspiciously like this Jets concept I saw a while back, but I guess it’s not close enough to be considered plagiarism. Yours is better and more original.

    I have had this Preds logo in my back pocket for a little while now, its super simple and is kind of a combination of their shoulder patch and chest logo. I plan on doing another one for the Preds as well but I thought I'd post this one just to get an idea of what you guys think

    Yeah it’s not relevant to the concept at all, it just stuck out at me. Something to think about, it might be cool to add a paddle wheel around the outside of the STL, it could act as a roundel type thing. Not sure if it would work, but it may be worth adding just to see
  4. Baseball!! NEW LOGOS, THEY LOOK GOOD i promise

    The new blue and gold is much better. That looks great

    St Louisan here. Quality concept for the STL team. I love the logo. We had an indoor soccer team called the steamers for a long time but I like your concept better. Completely irrelevant side note: I think 25% energy from a paddle wheel is pretty ambitious. That river is powerful but not that powerful.

    Fixed/updated the images on the first post. Whoops.

    I'm back after a bit of a hiatus with my redesign for the Wings. I think this would work really well as a shoulder patch. The Spirit of Detroit is a great statue in the city and I think it works really well with wings. I feel like I should add something in his hands but I am not sure what I would put there. As always C and C is always appreciated.

    Dallas update I took their old star logo and updated the colors and added a recolored Texas flag. Then I removed the wordmark and had the star go through the middle of a D in the same style as the other letters 1: 2:
  9. Onward - MLS to STL Expansion Bid

    That Tertiary kit is the best by far. It looks fantastic. I doubt Ford would end up as the jersey sponsor though. I wish that stadium vote would have passed, but I understand why it didnt.

    The bottom tooth being defined really makes it a lot better. I think the simplified look is better, but there are still clear western influences in it. And the profile adjustment and the spur off the mouth line really makes it not look like a beaver, specifically this beaver, which I didn't notice until it was pointed out. Well done.

    Thanks! Do you think the Robo-pen works better with the half keynote or full? The silver drop shadow is a pretty good idea, I'll give that a shot. Yeah I kinda want these logos to be more representative of the area, so for the most part I am trying to pull stuff from flags, history, local icons and stuff like that when I can. I just pulled the fleur straight from the provincial flag and only after that did I think about the Nordiques. I think Montreal's flag is a little too detailed to implement well in a logo and I haven't been to Quebec so I will have to do a little more research on local icons when I revise that one. Afterthought; take a look at Tampa's flag to see why I avoided that like the plague

    side note, what do you guys usually use as your export settings for making these? is there a best practice?
  13. NHL Preds, Sens & Ducks

    Take this with a grain of salt because I'm pretty new at this, but while I really like what you're going for with the Preds, I think the little spurs on the teeth make it look a little weird, the bottom foremost tooth should be white as well, and the nose area should be one piece with wrinkles going forward instead of across the nose. Kinda like this picture but again, I don't actually know what I'm doing so all that may be crap.

    fixed the broken links at the beginning

    Lightning: Honestly something's missing from this one, but everything I add makes it look worse so I decided to ask you all what you think. the L works pretty good but it seems empty. Again, these aren't really meant to replace the logo front of the jersey, most are meant to be shoulder patches, but this one feels empty. Wordmark: I thought trying to make it a wordmark would work a little bit better, and it does in some aspects, but it feels really empty still. Canadiens: I took the Fleur from the Montreal flag and tried to turn it in to an "M"which I think works pretty well, but I do think it needs some more polishing. I don't really like this better than their current logo but I think something like it could work as a shoulder patch 1: 2:
