The Coyotes, Twins, and Seahawks all dropped into a blender. 

 

 

I'm getting a 'Mavericks blue-on-blue blandness' vibe too

Bleh.

 

Should have gone with a dark gray as the outline and wolf color, or even black.  Gray for the moon would have made even more sense.

The trees are a huge loss, and it looks like the T-Wolves are setting themselves up for no black in their identity.

 

Countdown to BFBS alt begins now...

I like it. The double blue action is a bit baffling. I feel like it makes the wolf a little harder to see than if it had been a gray basketball moon sky thing.

It's alright. Not a huge fan of the eye and the way the lighter fur is now detached from it. Looked more natural on the previous version.

It's OK. As long as the uniforms are good this will work fine.

Nice touch adding the North Star.

That's the same wolf, just flipped and without the extra definition and coloring. That's probably just someone else's mockup of what the logo might look like based on either what they've seen or heard, but surely the wolf on the actual logo isn't just a flipped and simplified version of what's already used in their current secondary logo.

Surely it isn't huh? It was much closer than what Conrad posted.

Sure maybe it was closer but the wolf in that rendering was the exact same wolf that Conrad used in his mockup, just without the extra definition and shadowing. My point was that there was no way the new logo would include the same wolf from their current secondary logo, and I was 100% right about that. Rather than reusing the current wolf and just flipping it and getting rid of the shadows, they introduced a completely new wolf.

The only thing closer about it was that the wolf was facing the other way. But the wolf in that rendering was the exact same wolf that Conrad used in his mockup, just without the extra definition and shadowing.

I said that the wolf was rendered differently than the current secondary in my post. The secondary was used as a base to get the idea. I live in Minnesota, have been around ccslc since '05 and wouldn't have posted that image without some sort confirmation that the logo was something close to that. 

 

Anyway, it will be interesting to see if any secondary/accompanying marks are introduced tonight as well.

I understand what you said but my entire point was that there was no way the wolf in the new logo was going to be the same wolf as what's currently used, just with the extra shadowing and definition removed. And I was right about that, it's indeed a completely new wolf. Sure it's facing the same way as what was in the image you posted, but the point still stands that the wolf in this new logo is not the same wolf as what's currently in use, and the mockup you posted used the current wolf just with the extra shadowing removed. 

 

It doesn't really even matter, just wanna make sure we're on the same page with the points we were both trying to get across.

It's not bad. 

 

The colours are different enough from the Seahawks with the two shades of blue, the new Wolf looks nice & the new font looks simple & sleek. 

 

The "North Star" though makes the basketball look like the Tropicana Orange (Edited by me)T.png.2606424728f160058c07442f5208fa41.png

I don't think I'll ever un-see that now.

I clearly said the new wolf would be rendered differently than the current secondary. The image I posted was from someone who saw the new logo and attempted to recreate it using the current secondary as it was 'close' to the new wolf. Sorry I even posted. :rolleyes:

It's growing on me the more I look at it. 


And as far as releases go, this is pretty tame in terms of vitriol.

Took the Nike insiders, newspapers, and Reddit long enough to leak it. It was long overdue.

 

JK, but it's really a general "meh" to me. The trees are a big loss, and I don't think I'll ever unsee the Tropicana orange. The wordmark is terrible - I absolutely hate when designers take out the crossbar int he "a". It does look a lot like the Coyotes (Arisota Timberyotes?), but I love the Coyotes logo (unpopular opinion?), so it's ont a problem for me. Lateral to slightly better move, IMO. I'll just have to wait for the unis to make a full impression.

I'd call it a lateral move at best.  The unis will make or break this new identity.  Double blue unis gives this an automatic fail. I already hate the way the Mavs and Seahawks look so my hopes aren't very high for this.
