Redesigning my old High School - Soccer Kits!

Recommended Posts

Hey all!

I got really inspired by Connor Brandt's project over on Dribbble of redoing local high school logos. Coincidentally, he's doing a district where I grew up: Omaha, Nebraska.

I thought I'd take a crack at redoing my high school alma-mater - Millard South.

I'll be designing football, basketball and baseball looks with this mark, as well as merch.

But for this first post, here's my redesigned mark.

As always, C&C is encouraged and appreciated.

Cheers!

First off, the criticism I have is the Michigan State-style notches in your letters. I just don't think they work. I can't put my finger on why, but I just don't like them.

The rest of the logo is superb. Bravo to you, good man.

It's Baylor's font

take out the notch in the top left corner of M and it's the best letter logo ever

The notches seem to be the key gripe - I went ahead and removed the notches from all instances. What do you think?

EDIT: I changed the MILLARD SOUTH from Grey to White in the Red-based version.

Nice job derschwigg! The high school should consider your logo as their future mark, would make a great helmet/cap logo. There's a local area high school here that comes to mind when I see this, guess it's the fact they use a similar style M & their colors are red/white/blue. You can check theirs out in the link below.

How about making the red and white stripes cover the entire right side of the logo

Incredible for a updated high school logo! It is perfect!


But no secondary logo?

IMO that might be a little much. I think it's very good as is

Glad I inspired you! This is a great start. Don't they use predominantly red right now? I really like the color change. That M monogram is a strong mark, and that's really all I think you need at the high school level. One minor thing that's bugging me is the star, I feel like it could be moved down and to the right just a little (unless you were trying to center it in the serif). Looking forward to the uniforms.

That's almost uncanny! I can assure you it's a total coincidence, though :)

Shaw's right - that'd be too much. Thanks though!

Thanks! But no worries, there will be a secondary. I'd like to do a tertiary, too, but only if a great idea presents itself.

It looks like you need some kind of outline for the white-on-white version of the logo. It just loses so much weight and powerfulness. I understand you're trying to "break the rules" of not adding that keyline to the logo, but I really feel like it can't support itself as white-on-white. The others do quite well though. They're beefy and fill that space, compared to the white version, the others stand out much better.

Thanks! I totally see where you're both coming from - CAB, you're right about the serif. But now that I'm looking at it, it looks like a mistake more than a conscious decision. So here's an adjusted version. I'm pretty satisfied in calling this mark finished.

And yeah, they have a really bright red as their primary color now. Almost TOO bright.

I'm glad to see this being so well-received! Thanks for the kind words, all!

I was able to put together a possible secondary - I aped a 'P' using a flag. Thoughts?

EDIT: I also put together a third "vintage" crest.

wow, great start, superb finish! love the final product (both primary and secondary logo (dance) )... not the biggest fan of vintage crest. I would like to see solid background... now it seems there's no background on the crest.

I like the primary logo a lot. If you could reduce the thicknesses of the uppermost and middle red horizontal stripes to adapt them to the remaining (diagonal) red stripes, it would be perfect.

The "P"-flag is a nice idea and works really well.

I'm not so sure about the third vintage logo. I just think the M is overly stretched vertically.

Nice job!

whoa! I liked the P flag logo! I could see it as secondary logo but unless if you are doing it differently. Vintage logo is okay but need something to put much of loud noise on it, I dunno really.
