  1. We will have to agree to disagree on the SC typeface weights I don't believe that every detail needs to be immediately recognized. There are lots of ways to reinforce that meaning without having to explain it. For instance, if I were to expand this brand (field designs, jerseys, wall graphics, merch, etc.) I could definitely see that "letterpress" style expand into all different mediums. Personally I love the asymmetry it creates and it is something that is definitely unique from other MLS marks. Thanks everyone! It was a fun project to work on and if you ever get a chance to see Joe in person at a conference/workshop... DO IT!
  2. @HRC4 @Zeus89725 Thanks for the kind words. Understandable, it is a little odd. It's actually one of my favorite parts of the logo. The weight change is intentional and is inspired by letter press studios (mainly Hatch Show Print) in Nashville. If you look at examples of letterpress work, weight changes within words are very common. I think this adds a little more seperation from other logos within the sport and connects it even more to Nashville.
  3. Recently, I participated in the Fuse Sessions Sport Branding Workshop with Joe Bosack. During the workshop Joe guided us through a quick history of sport branding, his professional experience and gave us some great information on how to concept and design sport identities. For the workshop, I chose to create a new an identity for a new MLS Expansion team in Nashville. The final mark was inspired by Nashville's music scene, printing/letterpress studios and the Gateway bridge. The color scheme was pulled from the neon signs that line Broadway.
  4. Thanks everyone for all the kind words! This project was so much fun for me and I'm super happy that so many people have been able to enjoy it.
  5. Hey all. I've posted similar projects like this here in the past and just wanted to share. In honor of the NBA season kickoff and Dr. Strange being right around the corner I wanted to unveil my NBA Marvel Logo Mashup Project. This project uses all 30 NBA primary logos. Each logo is combined with a Marvel Comics character. The goal was to mimic each logo as closely to the original as possible. Matching color usage, line weights and fonts. You can see this set and more at my website, wechoosetogotothemoondesign.com Thanks!
  6. Interesting update. I dig the font choice (more bold/italicized) but the more pointed/sheered C gives a lot of unbalance to the design. It feels like the logo is about to tip over.
  7. Super cool, thanks for sharing! I love your Indianapolis Colts one, super clever!
  8. I definitely considered it, but i felt the bucs logo worked better. A big thing with that logo was finding something that replaced the feathers in the original without being too forced. I though the tails of his mask worked well.
  9. Weird, its showing up fine for me! Here it is again.
  10. Thanks so much! Tampa Bay's is definitely one of my favorites. The Buffalo one was one of the last one's I did. It took me forever to come up with something, I'm glad you like it! Green Bay Groots is a fantastic idea. Super clever!
  11. I definitely would like too. I've been looking at NBA logos as the potential mashup. The problem with the NBA, is that a lot of their primary logos are wordmark heavy and a lot of them (20 if i remember correctly) feature a basketball. For me to do the NBA i might need to open up the project to secondary logos. DC will be a challenge for me too since I consider myself a Marvelite. haha
  12. Awesome! There are definitely a couple that overlap but I think our two projects are very different. The goal of mine was to be true to the team's primary logos, theirs is more helmet decal based. \\ Their logos are inspired by each teams logo, but there are big jumps when it comes to the content of some of the logos. For example, their 49ers mashup features Ironman's head. My 49ers mashup stays true to the original primary logo, and just features the two letters overlapping. I have a few jumps when it comes to the content of the original logos as well, but when that happened I made sure to try and stylistically match each logo with their original (ie, line weights, use of color, using pieces of the original logos, etc). Thanks for posting this! Its neat to see what others did!
  13. Thanks so much! The bear head would've been cool to explore (I'm thinking Abomination, a Skrull or maybe even Kingpin!), but it unfortunately wasn't Chicago's primary logo!
  14. Thanks for catching the error! Yeah it was tough leaving them out, but finding characters and teams that worked together was a goal of mine. Maybe if I do an NBA or MLB version of this project they'll make it into it!
