I'm going with #TeamGrays

I know it's way after the time for major design changes, but for the Grays, what if the ruff is actually in the shape of the mountain you use for the Billies belly?  But in negative.  And instead of the wolf just being calm, he's howling.  This allows for the wolf head to rotate counter-clockwise slightly to accommodate a more horizontal mountain-ruff.  Just a thought.  (edited to add:  You could actually just continue directly from the wordmark to incorporate the howling idea I suggested, with the mountains informing the shape of the ruff.)

 

The Billies is a unique-ish identity and you have an interesting approach to it.  The Grays are another wolf identity of which there are dozens, and comparatively, your take on it, while solid, isn't breaking any new ground.   This is why I'm all-in on the Billies right now.

All very good suggestions dp.

 

The biggest reason that I didn't go with a "Howler" is the fact that Grand Rapids already claimed the Howling Coyote.

As you stated, there's so many angry wolf logos out there. That's why I went with a friendly approach for this one. It's also why I opted for Grays instead of other over-used monikers.

 

Billies is minor league to the core.  No question.

All team reveals are complete. Moving forward, I will do a self-critique of all team identities.

Some will stay and some will be tweaked. Final team slicks will begin to roll out soon.

 

The goal is to get NFL 2 through it's inaugural season and establish NFL 3.

 

Much more to come.

 

Thanks for following along.

My critique process begins.

I'll start off with an easy one. This one is pretty tight all the way through. I may alter the uniforms

somewhat, overall, thumbs up.

This franchise is cornerstone to the league story. The identity, colors, and city all fit like a glove.

There will be some minor tweaks to the uniforms, but that's about it.

Love this color scheme. I do need to develop a better primary logo for other applications.

Overall, thumbs up.

 

 

 

That's all for now.

Solid look based on the state flag and best area/location synergy

Of any of the 24 franchises in the league. Made a slight tweak to the number font.

 

The logotype will need some tweaks as well. Thumbs up overall.

The color scheme began as red, orange and black. After some great input, I dabbled with blue.

As you can see from the banner, blue is here to stay.

 

Slight tweaks will be made to the number font and logotype. The secondary will also get more attention.

 

Thumbs up, so far.

The Diablos are hot. The color scheme, logotype, number font all play together well.

The secondary logo sucks. It will be updated. The uniforms will get some tweaks as well.

 

Thumbs sideways until the secondary gets attention.

I like the primary. The logotype is meh. The secondary needs more work.

I dislike the color scheme. A total thumbs down at this point.

Love the primary. The logotype is in need of refinement. Color scheme fits well.

Do not like the the uniforms at all.

 

Thumbs sideways.

Hartford has a classic feel to it that flows well. The primary and logotype work

together. The number font still needs adjusting, but overall. thumbs up.

The Herd is on point. Not changing one thing.

Thumps up.

Like everything about the Kings except the secondary.

 

Thumbs up.

Love the simplicity of black and white. Need to incorporate the "M' from the primary into the secondary.

The logotype needs to be completely reworked. 

 

Thumbs sideways.

Real close with this one. The number font needs some work as well as the helmet detail.

Thumbs up.

 

 

35363286340_d45c9f0a84.jpg

 

A small tweak to the primary and helmets will help this set. Overall, thumbs up.

The Billies are good to go except the number font which needs some work. A small

tweak to the helmet stripe as well. Thumps up.

 

35641542441_06e17e95ec.jpg

 

Like the color scheme and primary. The secondary may be to close to the North Stars

after repeated views. A tweak to it is in order. Overall, thumbs up.

I like the clean, modern style of the Explorers. I think the logotype and number font needs a slight tweak

toward the modern look as well. Love the color scheme.

 

Thumbs up.

The Stangs are bold. The primary needs more definition. The logotype is close, but needs some work

The color scheme is on point.

 

Thumbs up.

Bats! Really like the color scheme. The primary works well. The logotype needs some refinement.

The secondary needs more work. The number font isn't quite there yet.

 

Overall, thumbs up.

 

35646123432_5c03cc1b76.jpg

 

Not much to do on this one. Like everything about it.

My only nitpick is the number font.

 

Thumbs up.

One of my favorites. The logotype needs some refinement, but overall, thumbs up.

Going the right direction. I don't like the number font and the stripes need to be

pulled back a bit. Color scheme fits well.

 

Thumbs up.

Tulsa has a good look. The primary just needs some line work and an alternate 

logo will be hatched. Overall, thumbs up.

 

35076653353_64fffb38be.jpg

 

The Wings are another favorite. I really dig the color scheme.

The helmet my be tweaked, but this is good to go.

 

 

 

That's a wrap on things to do.

The final team slicks will begin soon.
