  1. Guess they didn't run the "Does this look like a ....hole" test when designing the cap mark.
  2. let's not look to Common for this, he has trouble spelling his own name in songs...."It's the C Double O...."
  3. I'm surprised that these aren't as bad as I expected and with a few tweaks could actually be nice uniforms. -"Southside" needs to be more legible it can read at a quick glance as: "Smithside" -"S" in Southside coming from SOX logo, I like the intent but just doesn't feel correct, looks chopped. -Hat is bad....just go with the classic current black hat -pair these with white or grey pants, not black, look like pajamas and too much of that Gangsta feel -I'm guessing that is a light heathered texture? -Kinda wish the player names were in white
  4. Plus the Islanders logo isn't even a perfect circle...
  5. I was surprised to find out it exists as a live font.
  6. love all the speculation in here.
  7. The photo in this thread really isn't doing these the justice they deserve, they look amazing in person. https://twitter.com/GoldenKnights/status/1312082934501785600?s=20
  8. Honestly do a search and you can find numerous Space Needle/Anchor designs, mostly clip art, souvenir type motifs done prior to the Kraken's mark. I was not involved but I was aware of the logos prior to the unveiling. I thought the same thing, how could nobody have thought of it? The key here is that it was done so well and fits great within the entire identity that now the mark, some could say, is already theirs. Of course you can say I am biased but I feel they hit it out of the park on this whole identity, bravo. @BringBackTheVet I think the anchor connection is with the sea, ships and their tales of battle with these legendary creatures (Kraken) similar to the beveling in the primary for the back of the boats used to fish in the area. Space Needle=Seattle. Anchor=Sea. Where we are from and where we dwell.
  9. Passes the true test, now Washington......you got some work to do.
  10. I go back and forth on that too, sometimes I do think the NHL is above the NFL, the latest NFL stuff is not as strong. Yeah the NBA just needs to go with their partial logos, drop the ones with all the text included.
  11. What? The NHL is rubbing elbows with the NFL and is right there with the MLB, maybe even better as of late. The NBA is much further behind.
  12. I think it keeps the designer in check to not get too illustrative with the mark. Keep it simple, clean, and timeless. Something you can see for a few seconds then be able to draw it pretty easily. I fell most of the successful timeless logos achieve this.
  13. Step right up Uncle Ben as well. These are both long overdue. Now if only some football team in our nation's capital would make a move.....
  14. Secondary logo is pretty clunky and then there's this.
  15. Maybe he speaks from experience, like having worked with the NHL? You just got some of the best insider info and you still don't believe it.......this board sometimes.....
