    Seattle Sockeyes Concept (Updated 10/20)

    That new burgundy, navy, and green looks a lot better; much higher contrast. I like it! The burgundy & candy-apple red don't work quite as well, IMO; the latter is way too bright. If you go that route, I think you need a pinker color instead (the photo of the fish you include looks pink to me.) As for the curvature of the lines: yeah, that's a tough thing to work with, but I think you did a good job.

    Seattle Sockeyes Concept (Updated 10/20)

    Seattleite here! It's a good start, I'd say... I feel like the logo's a bit oddly weighted with the tail being way more prominent than the head.The green on the tail also feels kinda abrupt... Just a thought: maybe you could make the current divide between red and navy into subtle mountains! The red seems too saturated and dark and the navy is so desaturated it looks gray to me, so I'd play with the colors a bit. Finally, I think the S is way too angular for a fish. These are some good ideas; I think it's worth messing around with some more!

    Major League Hockey: Baseball Crossover (PHI Added!)

    The New York teams are very well-executed. Good going with the thin striping on the Evil Empire, and totally second @seasaltvanilla about the Mets. Only suggestion is to remove the name from the Yankees.

    NFL REDESIGN (Bills 10/16)

    I love the fonts for Buffalo, especially the wordmark font! The one-color numbers look good. The red helmet is kinda odd, but it works well enough. I just think the logo's too detailed; it might be better without the red stripe. Browns look great; no complaints! How clever with the striping in the letter outlines! Great work, per usual!

    Syracuse Chiefs rebrand as Syracuse Mets

    Totally agree. There are lots of big cities, but NYC is THE big city in the US. Maybe... I guess the team might get the a tad of the brand value of its parent club, but I imagine sticking to one name would probably give the team more staying power in its own area. But really, regardless of any cost-benefit analysis, I just want to see more unique, local, and cool identities, not less.

    Syracuse Chiefs rebrand as Syracuse Mets

    (sigh) A real shame that such a well-executed identity and historical name have been replaced by a copy-and-paste. The Mets name doesn't work so well outside of NYC.

    NFL to NBA (#20 Panthers updated on 10/13)

    Love the striping for Cincy and Chicago. Cincy's is both really fun and well-executed, and that Chicago throwback is pure class! Perfect old-timey vibes while working perfectly in the modern day, with its beautiful script and no white. I really like the wordmark for Carolina's blue; not feeling the "Panthers" one though. I would suggest two-color striping rather than three, personally. Keep up the good work!

    PELICANS MARDI GRAS THEMED COURT CONCEPT

    A definite improvement from your previous version. The Bird-de-Lys works great, and the wordmarks on the ends are better. The sublimated skyline looks better on just the one side. All around, a cleaner look. Good job!

    MLB: The Defunct Saga - Denver A's Added

    Sorry for the delayed response. More excellent work here! While I can't say I like it, the first Nationals set feels very 90s-tastic. The navy & gold to match the Capitals and Wizards of the time is a good move. Your Padres-Nats set is a pretty cool idea, though I feel the DC flag and home-plate didn't work super well. I think the tertiary works best. The Chicago A's are a good combo of Athletics and White Sox. Love the pinstriped home, and the forest green works wonders. Your Seattle White Sox (SeaSox!) looks really good but it just feels like a good Mariners concept with "Sox" on it. Pinstripes might help. I'm not a big fan of the batterman, but you adapt it well. Love those navy+kelly colors! Your Toronto set does a good job of combining the Blue Jays and Giants. I can really see this team doing what the Jays have done, with their shift to Canada imagery only away from any local stuff... Totally second your sentiment about losing the Jays identity... ? That font looks great for the Raptors! Could we see it on Toronto FC or the Argos, perchance? That What if logo feels like it's from the Japanese league!

    LA Clippers secondary logo rough Concept

    An interesting idea, but I wonder if the L will work if the wave is in a different color than the sail part. Honestly, I think this could work without making it an LA monogram... Just a blue wave & white sails! Alternatively, if ditching the LA doesn't appeal to you, perhaps consider lowering the parts of the A (i.e. remove top triangle, add bar through bottom triangle)

    The Battle of Seattle

    I think your new Steelheads logo is a huge improvement! I love the colors, and you're right, it works both in Seattle flag mode and in Indigenous copper + teal mode. The S/hook/hockey stick logo also quite nice! My only suggestions are to keep the silver of the logo on the home jersey, and maybe to rotate and/or translate the bottom portion a bit so the S shape is a bit more continuous. We're getting closer and closer to our team here; your continued concepts are keeping me hyped!

    Clouder's NIKE x NBA Concepts

    I'm afraid I have a few complaints with this Clippers set. 1) I think the main wordmark font really doesn't fit either the logo or the number fonts. Maybe use the blue jersey's number font? 2) The double-outlined script at home is really clunky. No outlines necessary, IMO. 3) The collar & sleeve striping doesn't match the side panels. I'd just go two-color stripes: red & blue on the white jersey, white & blue on the red jersey. Not a huge deal, but I'd be happy to see a royal blue away, and a powder blue alt. Sorry to get so down. I do really like the blue jersey, with its script & sans serif number font, and the triangle side panels fit the logo well! Way to bring back the great SD-era logo. Your Houston updates look good, too!

    Baltimore Ravens Refresh: 10/12/18 Re-Refresh!

    This is a really interesting rendition! The angle is cool and makes the bird very intimidating. I don't know if the shading is necessary, though. This primary looks quite good. It's a great update to the Ravens' current logo, removing the clunky B and outlines. That secondary is awesome! What a unique concept! The heraldic raven is really well done. I second @Zeus89725's concern about the two shades of purple; I recommend de-saturating the lighter one to more of a lavender-gray. I agree with @BellaSpurs; the secondary would look cool on a helmet! Maybe do it for an all-black color rush alt, if you plan to do jerseys! Really good work!

    Bigred's CFL (Riders added)

    I like Hamilton a lot, but I don't think the white chunks on the home are necessary. The pants & sock stripes are great! Also, thanks for the info on Ottawa's helmet. It looks good, with or without that context!
