  1. Monster in the Lake makes sense, a little less in the City. Template awf-ucking-ful; colours? too much Cavs, not enough Jackets. WOnder if the Cavs didn't win if they would have gone with that rip-off bandwagon colour scheme?
  2. I've always liked the Americans' identity, and your version is no different to me: very solid. A few things I would consider: make the 3rd a even more of a different layout than the same logo in the front, maybe a wordmark or something like that. I also find the use of the logo as the "A" for the alternate redundant and distracting. Looking forward to more teams!
  3. Thanks for the history lesson. Despite how long it's been, I think it's quite internationally accepted that Canada's colours are red and white (let's see what they wear in Rio), but Toronto's teams don't necessarily need to scream "Canada". (The City of Toronto's logo is blue, and the flag is primarily blue as well.) I was more thinking of it from a design stand point. With 4 major professional teams (Sorry Argos' fans) with relatively different colour schemes, I think that using 2 colours makes it more interesting than just 1.
  4. Nice.... Here are a few random comments: -I think the mouth may be opened a little too wide (feels more like having dental work done then roaring to me) -Something about the shape and angle feels too symetrical/geometrical (if that's a word) to me. The orange could be a good CFL BC Lions logo. Keep up the good work!
  5. Let me start by saying how much I love this thread. The one thing I have an "issue" with is that in some concepts you don't fully make use of all your colours. You should also decide which ones are main colours vs. secondaries. So without "hijacking" your thread, can I make a few suggestions in the for of my own recolouration? Here are some suggestions (I will remove if people think I'm hijacking this): And finally, I think it's prety clear it can't work for every city (Boston being the best example) but don't be afraid to push the envelope (Who's idea was it to have Maple Leafs blue, when our flag is red???) Good Luck, I'll be watching this closely.
  6. I absolutely love the overall concept, especially its simplicity and cleanliness. I will echo the comments of many other commenters: -While in this case, I really like the gradient effect, it may be worth considering removing, expecially in the name of "simplicity". -The rays could take different shape.
  7. There aren't enough expletives in the two languages I speak to fully describe how I feel about this thread!!!!! BEST EVER!!! from so many levels!!!! When you said "RANDOM", you really meant it - Awesome! Looking forward to see more.
  8. We are living in an insensitive world: case insensitive.
  9. A few comments from me: -I don't understand the name Iron. I don't know the history of Pittsburgh, but if iron was ever a big industry, it must have been replaced by steel a long time ago -I don't know why (and don't like) a different colour for the first letter of Iron. -I really like teh "trim" of your uniforms. -As someone who like "out there" concepts, I love the idea of hte extruded metal texture look, but that's too much. Maybe it should be used in side panels, or striping, lettering, etc. but not as a full background.
  10. There is no such thing as TOO MUCH ORANGE... I don't think it's that new of an idea, that's why their AHL affiliates use it. As for the concepts here are my comments: I find that they are all a little too similar, arm stripes, yokes, etc. Something bothers me about the extra higher stripe for both Pittsburgh and Winterpeg. If these are to be Fourth, they need to be very different from what they have in Home, Away and Third. I would take inspiration from vintage jerseys: teams with heritage would be easier, but you can go Faux-Back as well.
  11. I will refrain from making a political statement on a political statement, in a DESIGN/Branding discussion...
  12. Chong needs to get himself a better translation team, of French writing. There is a huge difference, in my mind between "Leader" et "Leadership", in both official language. It's changing the meaning from a skill/quality that could be shared by more than the person himself: Leadership (could have been changed to "Direction" in French) could be a promise form him, from the party, from our nation. But Leader focuses on the man, the "me, myself and I".
  13. I think that could easily explain the fleur de lis in the city's coat of arms. Haaa the Fur trade, not to be mistaken with the Fuhr trades.
  14. Really dude??? That third is beyond words... It kicks the hell out of their striped pajamas...
  15. And the relationship with Nashville is??? (I saw that they have a Fleur de lis on their city's coats of arms, but still don't see a relationship. From what I read, at least on line... not dicoverd or founded by any French explorer,
