Twisted Tradition - A New Take on Classic Logos

Recommended Posts

I want to try to alter and reinvent some of the classic and iconic logos in sports. Logos that no one would want to change, but for the purpose of these concepts, that's the entire point.

There's a bit more of a write up here - http://tinyurl.com/nsjvt3c

I've done two so far.

The Red Sox and Yankees.

These are more edgy and not as round as the originals.

What do you guys think? And what are some other classic logos you'd like to see my change?

I really like your idea of touching the untouchable. I do like Boston's but the jagged edges on the right side kind of throw me maybe because the right side of the edge is bigger than the left. And I kind of like New York's but it kind of looks like a devil's pitchfork. But I mean it's kind of funny because most if not all baseball fans think of the Yankees as the evil franchise anyways. Can't wait to see what more untouchable logos you come up with.

Boston is good, but I don't like the uneven stroke on the Yankee's logo. Some parts are wider than others, and it makes the logo look unfinished.

Good versions, if I can request one I would request the ball in glove

I think it would be pretty cool if you could find a way to create the Yankees logo in the shape of a baseball diamond. Your logo kind of hints at it already.

This is great! You took tradition and stayed with tradition, all while modernizing it! Sweet job.

If you do the cubs i'll be very interested to see how that goes but i mean you put a current look on two old logos

Cubs is a good one. I might have to try that.

I'm also gonna do other sports as well.

Maybe the Knicks logo could be done. And a wishbone C used by the Reds now, and by the Cubs and Indians in their histories.

I kinda think it'd fit the Indians more.

You're right! I knew something about the shape of this C looked like something I've seen before but wasn't sure. I thought it was a college team. Then when you said that I remembered right away.

That's some really cool designing! The first time I like a Yankee's logo, I personally would change the bottom of the Y matching the lines of the N into a square (don't know if it fits)
For the Cubs it's difficult to find a C not being used already...

Yeah, its a new team haha. Thanks for that, didn't notice.

I have a new one, the Dodgers, who have had the same logo for their entire time in LA.

The star references the stars of LA and Hollywood and the silver refers to the silver screen.

I think this looms good for LA. The A kind of looms like a star, which fits them.
