  1. Most importantly, you're happy with what you created. The medals are good motivation for entering the Logolympiad, but enhancing your skills and stretching your creativity are the best rewards for participating, no matter how you place in the voting. This thread is a great place for you to explain your creative choices. Why did you choose the subjects, teams, names, colours, shapes, fonts, etc. that you did? What do you like about your work? What would you go back and change? Three of the entries you posted here required uniforms on flat templates, which levels the playing field, but also makes voting tougher, I think. When the work is mostly of similar quality, good work, I guess voting is going to be less predictable. Maybe a single red uniform entry draws votes over several blue uniform entries simply because it seems unique? Have a look at the work that placed better than yours. What makes it distinct? Columbus Crew - The black and yellow checkered stripes suggested 'Taxi' to me. The entire uniform was black, but the yellow socks didn't match. American Basketball Association - Doesn't say 'Basketball', to me, but definitely screams 'America'. I don't think you need the outer blue ring and stars. Wild Wings - I like it. It's a good hockey uniform concept. Maybe instead of putting the small wings on the back of the yoke, you could have made the wings larger, so that they filled the entire yoke, making the entire yoke into wings? St. Louis Arsenal - I like the colours and the number font. I don't think there's anything wrong with those uniforms. Maybe bring a little gold to the collar or add a gold stripe to the helmet? Why'd you choose 'Arsenal' for the team name?
  2. Anniversary Patch - Your entry really stood out, and for me, a big part of the appeal was the symmetry of the 2 and 5. I think you could have squared off the upper left corner of the 5, and also the upper right corner of the 2. Keeps the symmetry, makes the 5 more identifiable, and doesn't hurt the shape of the 2? Wordmark - I'm mostly responding in this thread to say how much I liked this wordmark. It was clearly something that wasn't simply: Choose Font Type "BREWERS" Apply Effects I especially liked how the top of the 'B', instead of following it's own barrel shape, followed the shape of the 'R' next to it. I also like the different-shaped 'E's, particularly how each fits the curve of the central 'W'. If you were to change that second 'E', I'd leave the left side as it is and curve the right side in the same direction, so it also follows the curve of the 'W' instead of the 'R'. (Basically, flipping the first 'E', but with the spine on the proper side of the letter, if that makes sense.) Sporting Event - I like the colours and I like the idea of using the bridge's suspension cable to form the horse's jawline. Overall, it looks a little crude. I think you could have done a better job of adding some expression to the horse with more work on the eye and mouth, and maybe adding a flared nostril. (You know, your run-of-the-mill angry animal logo ) Crossover - It's a good entry. I think that when everybody's using existing logos and mostly standard templates it's just harder to stand out. League Logo - I think that was my favourite entry from that event, but I don't think I voted for it. To me, the most dominant feature of the league logo should have been "ABA" or even simply a large 'A', and I didn't like how "ABA" was so small and seemed thrown in. I thought you could have added a large 'A' nestled directly outside and following the lines of the top and lower points of the star. Alternate Uniform - Again, existing logos and mostly standard templates make for a more even playing field. Looked like a bear logo, said Wolfsburg on the nameplate, and had what looked like tiger stripes because they alternated orange and black. Company Logo - I got the Mini Me part, but not the Veridian part. Too clever. Alternate Logo - Yeah, the crossed bat and telescope are a good concept. That team's got the potential for great logos - somebody's probably going to do an awesome update for them eventually. Time Warp - I think I voted for this one, based on the logo. Congratulations on completing as many entries as you did. I have a lot of respect for all of the contestants, like you, who had the focus, dedication, and determination to stretch their creativity over multiple events. Great job!

  12. Congratulations to Bruins and Mockba, and thanks to everyone who took the time to participate or vote in this event! I was surprised that nobody made a patch for Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak in 1941.

  14. If these will do, you can send me a personal message with your e-mail address, and I'll give you the file.
  15. Sorry Harmening, as OnWis97 said, I meant 'you' to apply generally to the CCSLC, not you specifically.
