When the Silverbacks announced that they would be holding a contest for their new logo, I was pretty hyped. I actually had this idea swimming around in my head for some time. Here's my idea for their new badge..

The colors are bright orange, the color of a peach, and navy blue. The mascot logo was hand-drawn my me. I was going for a vintage look, something that could become a classic. I think I drew the most inspiration from this old logo I found some time ago...

It belongs to Barnsley FC, a team in the FL's Championship Division. Not sure if they're still using it anymore.

Anyway, I need your most honest opinions about this, because I plan on submitting this on the contest. Thanks a lot! :)

Thanks. That's just what I was going for. Here's another version with their current colors. Let me know if this looks any better:

I like it all around, but I like it better in the current colors. Honestly, I think it would be OK in the peach and blue scheme as well, but I'd drop the leaves from his head. It's fun. Definitely captures that caricature-type mascot you were going for. Well done.

No offense, but I honestly can't see how something like this would look in a professional setting. It may draw inspiration from older logos, but it doesn't translate well. This logo isn't fitting for a professional franchise.
