Terminus Atlanta: Again, we've got enough Uniteds in the league, especially when 'united' means nothing. I've always loved the Terminus Atlanta monicker, so lets roll with that. A little bit Purdue, a little touch of 5 stripes, a whole lot less boring roundel.

That. That’s phenomenal. Somehow you got managed to change just about everything, improve the crest shape to something much more unique. And kept the main idea of the previous one intact throughout the changes! Although, not the biggest fan of the names. That’s more of a personal thing though.

 

Houston Also looks great! But it doesn’t scream soccer. That could make a good astros or rockets concept tho! Or even a Houston NHL concept!

 

San Jose, much of the same as Atlanta. Once again it looks really great!

 

I like the Changes to Kansas City and Toronto too! I like Kansas City’s specifically. Such a good and needed update. I’d love to see them up close though. I see you changed Vancouvers colors, which now scream Colorado imo, I’d prefer the double blue. 

Lookin foward to your next team. Love to see you take a shot at Seattle or the Galaxy

Guitar Pic would be great. I feel like you could mess with guitar strings as well and mix those two things up. Music City is much more unique than Nashville FC.

Im afraid if you go to Yellow and Navy it’s gonna look too close the the Galaxy. I’d try maybe Light Blue, Yellow/Gold, Red or just light blue and gold. Either way the primaries would be light blue + yellow/gold. Just stay away from the navy

Something like this work for you? I'm still real unsure about colors, but as this is a new club I think I want to use a color that the league that started in the 90s somehow doesn't have. Teal. Let me know what you like best.

The orange i’d pass on. The others looks amazing! Love the Tennessee stars at the bottom and the special n they currently use. The cursive is really nice too!

Personally I'd go with the Teal and the Yellow/Gold as the Yellow acts as a segway into the Preds fandom

Saw someone suggest the name Six Strings, similar to Atlanta’s Five Stripes. That name perfectly applies to this.

What if you lightened the teal a bit, to somewhere between sky blue and what you have now, and try using brown again?

I like the first version with yellow better (strings & stars on blue/teal). Looks really nice!

 

I'd love to see your take on FC Dallas or the LA Galaxy!

Got any ideas for a better name for FC Dallas? The current name is a bit lacking and the former name is a bit...sexually transmitted.

I've been playing with @derschwigg's soccer template on some ideas. I hate Adidas' stripes so the league is making the switch to Nike. I'm also a proponent of teams having matching home and away, for the most part. It's an American sports styling, and I think it's a good way to differentiate MLS branding from the rest of world soccer. I also think a white kit isn't 100% necessary.

Just here to chime in and say this work has been phenomenal.  Austin, SLC, NJ, and Nashville are my favorites.  SLC is especially nice, the crest is original and modern and kits bring the rebrand to life.  I love your willingness to branch out of the traditional sports team color schemes and explore a wider pallette.  It makes for a much better league when each franchise owns a unique color scheme.  

 

Nice work!

 

Just so it isn't all rainbows and high fives, I do have some nits to pick. . .  I don't see the need to change Houston from the Dynamo to the Apollos.  They're both silly, American-ized, futuristic terms.  I don't really see the value in going from one to the other, especially when the new branding and colors would fit just as well with the Dynamo.  Secondly, I love the moon kit, but I think it needs black shorts and socks.  It doesn't feel right to have the moon graphic just stop arbitrarily on the jersey, but have the rest of the kit continue with monochrome color scheme.

 

Next, the 'Q' in the Quakes crest seems a bit off.  I think the circle just needs to be larger, as currently the diagonal slash is disproportionate.   Even just scaling it up 10% - 20% would probably get the job done.

 

Again though, amazing work.  I'm finding this whole series very inspiring!

tl:dr anything but this. 

But seriously, thanks for the fantastic feedback. I think you've got some valid points, especially the black shorts for the moon-kit. 

If anyone has any ideas for teams I haven't done yet, or for the likely expansion clubs (St. Louis, Detroit, Charlotte, Hot-Sac, etc) please chime in. I've hit a point where I've got some creative block.

The thing about FC Dallas is that the name actually dates back to the 80s and the old Lone Star Soccer Alliance.  If anyone is allowed to simply be FC (insert city), it oughta be them.
