Nike State Mascot Series

Recommended Posts

Last thanksgiving, I spent the wee hours of the morning coming up with a logo. The logo had been in my head for a few days, and it was a Virginia Tech logo of a turkey incorporating the shape of Virginia. Made it, got a couple of likes, and that was it. I saw it the other day and thought it was cool, so I tweeted it back out.

 

It was really well received and a few people told me I need to make more. That's what I did! I made the California one a few weeks ago, and the Tennessee one today. They feel like Nike shirts to me, so I'm calling this the Nike State Mascot Series

Really cool! I think a Mountaineer in West Virginia would be sweet.

Interested to see how many of the Florida schools would look like this...

This is one I tried before I did the Cal one. I thought of a feather angled to sort of make a panhandle. Ended up dropping it, but that's one I want to do too.

This is an amazingly creative idea. Wow. I'd also be interested to see how a spear shaped like Florida would look for the Seminoles. This is great!

This is the kind of ideas I prefer. Actual ideas that I can get a start with. Only problem is that they're UA!

I'm gonna honest here, I had no clue what to expect when I clicked on this thread, but this idea is absolutely amazing. It's one of the most creative things I've seen here in the boards, and I would buy one of those shirts if it was Ohio with Brutus the Buckeye in it. Those first few shirts look gorgeous, though. This is an awesome concept, can't wait to see where it goes.

Can you do the turkey, but with New Mexico, but with a duck instead, but not a mallard, and make it an entire series? I'll sit and wait.

This is an amazing concept!

 

Suggestions for future designs:

 

Wisconsin in the shape of a cheese wedge or a badger

 

Indiana as a basketball net (in both crimson and gold) or as a race car

 

Michigan as a "Marvel-esque" Wolverine with the UP being his claws

or

Michigan as a Spartan Warrior with the UP being a sword held above in "Attack Mode"

 

Illinois as a minimalist portrait of Abe Lincoln, and put a top hat on the state
