    Respond, don't react. One of my psych profs in college said that, and I've pretty much lived by that mantra since then. Conveniently, it fits right in with the biggest thing I try to teach people who are asking for advice (or seem to need it) on being a designer: learn how to handle criticism. Since what you do as a designer is very subjective, and there will always be people that do not like your work. It's one of the more challenging professions in my opinion, because there's not a concrete measure of success, so to speak, past "I like it" or "I don't like it." That being said, though, everyone's feedback can be helpful — it's all in how you take it. As a designer, your work is very personal, and it's very easy to take negative feedback as a personal attack. More often than not, it's just a person giving an honest opinion. The sooner you recognize that and respond instead of react, the easier your job becomes. Don't get me wrong, we've all been pissed at a client's decision to scrap work at one point or another. But what is healthier for you and your relationship with them? Listening and delivering what they're asking for, or trying to convince them that you're right? Same goes for work posted here. While it may not be for a client per se, the general public is a wealth of information and opinion that a lot of designers dismiss as "haters" or people who don't understand the craft. There's some truth to that last bit, no doubt, but being hard-headed toward criticism and feedback is really self-limiting.

    Fellow designers: What's the best piece of advice that you've seen/heard/read? I think for me it's the idea that Jessica Hische outlined in a talk about "Procrastiworking." Basically she said that multiples times throughout her career she found herself procrastinating on her day-to-day work on other projects. When she was an illustrator, she spent all her time working on lettering. When she lettered she got big into coding and font creation. What this amounts to is two things: 1) Whatever you are procrastiworking on, is likely what you should be doing full time. It's clearly your passion and you should pursue it. 2) If there is some area you'd like to work in, you have to be able to show people you can do it before they hire you to do so. If you have a portfolio full of publication design, but want to work in sports branding, the only way you'll get hired to do so is to fill your portfolio with more sports branding. So go procrastiwork on some sports logos to prove to potential clients that you can do it. What advice has impacted you the most?

Let me know how to Make this better guys! Also what I should do for a secondary maybe a version of the eagle on the Mexican Flag?

    Next up from the Central division is the Cleveland Cavaliers! I think this turned out to be a pretty classic set with a hint of modernity. I took their trim striping and translated it here. I liked the way to color-blocked sleeves looked with the striping. It added some interest beyond just three lines.

    I was gonna say usually paul lukas would do one on uniwatch, but I guess he may be above that now. (Or just to busy looking for petty stuff to actively complain about) So today he posted a recap of what other sites did, but before he did rambles for 3 paragraphs or more on what makes an april fools joke "legit" in his elite mind. April fools is simple, if its something that people can believe, its good, that is all, not a god damn science.

    @ dfwabel, don't play that game. I've said repeatedly that change is needed. I'm not against those things, I'm against the method they're pursuing. But who knows? Maybe the end result of threatening the union course will be reform we can all live with. But there are already too many people on this board who ignore what people say and throw mud in an effort to distract people and force them to defend baseless accusations instead of discussing the issue. Just say no to that, okay? I also said that my experience seeing how unions operate in the real world influences my view. I'll bet it would influence yours too if you were an airline passenger and a pilot participating in an illegal work-to-rule action delayed your flight with bogus nitpicks that force maintenance to come out again and again. That's just one of many - and I mean many - such acts I saw. Labor has its place and (again, as I've said) the smartest organizations treat their people in a way that makes unions unnecessary.

    I think a white helmet with a stripe of that pattern on the basketball uniforms a few years ago would be pretty sweet. They've been showing recruits that for a year or so now. Unfortunately, I doubt that it's what we'll be seeing. I hope your right as that grey facemask ruins an otherwise beautiful helmet! I'm with you on the gray mask. If the uniform is simple and clean without too much modern clutter, the gray mask would look great. It wouldn't look great at all. I get that you love grey facemasks, cause you grew up with them, but you just need to deal with the fact that facemasks nowadays aren't going to be grey. A navy facemask would make those helmets much better. That's funny, because I still see lots of teams that still have gray masks and won't be changing them any time soon. I guess one of us needs to "deal with facts" but i'm not sure its me.

    I went and made another of these cross-over concepts. This time I went with the crazy Pittsburgh Steeler's bumblebee/jailhouse uniforms. I actually liked these uniforms even though many people didn't. I did this waiting on a class to start, so I just recolored the Steeler's uniforms in this template so I didn't have to draw it all over again in my usual template. I did remake the patch, but didn't want to change the dates since Auburn has been playing for about 150 years or so now. Plus I couldn't find any good fonts in a quick search that matched. I actually like how this came out. One thing I couldn't decide on was whether or not to put the AU helmet logo in a circle like the Steeler's or just leave it as the AU. Any thoughts on that would be great.
