    LOVE the colors, but the name/primary logo is too close to the Senators and Golden Knights.

     

    How about a Seattle Kraken concept?

     

    This 👏 isnt 👏👏 real 👏 proposal 👏 just 👏 take 👏 the 👏 concept 👏 for 👏 what 👏 it 👏 is


  2. I think I speak for all Arsenal supporters when I say Puma can get bent. That being said, Adidas and Nike suck too these days. Here's what I'm hoping Adidas does something similar to, next year when they take over the Arsenal kit manufacturing responsibilities. 

     

    Home jersey pretty simple, classic, elegant, hint of "adidas" touches. 

    Change kit an homage to the bruised banana, but much less of an attack on human beings who have working eyes. 

     

    Also figured this a nice project for a new template I'm working on.

  3. Great feedback guys!

     

    Do want to say this isn't a real "proposal" in terms of "does it make sense for Seattle's actual NHL team?" It's more just an exploration of branding/presentation, the city could've been anything, probably given away by zero Seattle elements in the branding. 


  4. For sure, the lines are definitely key, but use them as a guide. 

     

    Here's an example of something I worked on a while back. You can see I used lines at the beginning to sketch the basic idea, but then moved onto shapes and refined and refined until it looked right. The lines are a great starting point, but use them almost as a skeleton.

    The base is fine, very classic profile silhouette. I think you should focus on much thicker shapes and then try to build the features inside of them with purposeful lines and choices. Don't think of sports logos as drawings, but think of them as heavy shapes conveying an image. 

     

     

    I took your base silhouette and made something quick to show what i mean. In theory, mine is really just a big navy blue blob with one silver shape on top, and one on the outside. Obviously it may be hard to get it right the first or second time, but keep pushing yourself to use shapes more, logos should be bolder and simpler than a drawing or illustration. Don't focus on the lines that are part something, try and focus on that shapes that build it.

    Overall I really like this!  Two suggestions I have are 1) creating a "Marlins" wordmark for the home jersey and 2) adding a bit more pink to the entire branding or ditching it completely.  I dont know of any pro baseball teams that use color(s) on an alternate jersey that are completely absent from the rest of their jerseys or logos.  That South Beach alt feels too "NBA-ish" when compared to the rest.

     

    Spot on re: having a "Marlins" wordmark. Had one done and just spaced on putting it on there. It's in there now, thanks!

     

    I think taking a page from the NBA is probably a good thing for MLB in terms of trying to do city-specific things.

    Not sure high top cleats and high socks would really go together well, though. Not sure any player has ever really combined the two - I think almost every player who wore high cuff cleats also worse relatively low cut pants.

    Nelson Cruz wore LeBron cleats and high socks a few weeks ago in Detroit

  9. I really like this. Big plus that you brought the red back in, although it seems a bit random. I think that maybe more detail can be brought out of the shadows in the lion's mane.

    It's the design of the Florida flag in OCSC colors. I'd seen it around once or twice.


  10. Well gee thanks. I actually want to see some more jersey swaps...

    How come the environment here at CCSLC has turned into "gimme, gimme, gimme"? Doug did this for a project he's been a part of for a long time, and was gracious enough to record it and show everyone a look inside his process. It's not an easy thing to do at all, and I'm not sure why you feel you have earned the right to ask him to spend about an hour of his time just because you want to see something? Learn to do it yourself or ask for tips! We have no problem trying to help people learn, but too many people get way too ask happy and don't realize that alot of time goes into doing alot of this stuff and we're not just doing it because you want us too.

    Sorry for the rant, just saying.

    Love it, Doug. It's fun to frankenstein pieces together, even if it isn't always easy. Did a great job here!

    Someone suggested on twitter that I take a stab at a NE Revs crest, who obviously need an update. I went through a bunch of concepts and ideas, none of which really fit the simplicity of a crest and also the revolutionary war's imagery. I finally came to this, which includes uniform and artillery imagery in what i think is a memorable and iconic way.

    BOOM.

    Tear it apart. Go.
