  1. No problem, I live like 20 some miles from Rollag so I know all about the "WMSTR" but i really like how the logo is progressing to a real looking whistle, id buy one and walk around Threshers Hill
  2. miltonANDlumbergh thats a nice concept for North Dakota but there is one problem with it, there really is no Evergreens in ND or trees for that matter
  3. yay for the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion
  4. Open the pathfinder palette and click the combine path option. Hope this works. awesome thanks
  5. is there a feature in Illustrator were you can take 2 objects and contour them toeghter, Im making so vinyl graphics and for plotting purposes i need to have all the shapes and paths combined so any info would be awesome
  6. This just looks like a run of the mill text on path. There isn't really any distortion to the lettering, it just runs on a curve. An explaination to create text on a path is earlier in this thread. thanks i knew it was something simple
  7. i know alot of you might think this is easy but i was wondering the easiest way to slightly arc the text on your wordmark like "Roughnecks" on this logo
  8. i wish i could say it was a long drawn out process but orange and blue are some of my favorite colors and going with an explosion/action theme to the logo, yellow just kinda feel in place for the explosion
  9. thanks for the imput....i edited the top post to show the changes, i kinda hit a block with the colors any more suggestions are welcome
  10. I recently started working on my logo for my freelance business. I'm looking for some comments and suggestions to improve on this logo. Its main use is going to be for Thermal printed vinyl on my car along with business cards and hopefully down the road actual brick and mortar business sinage. So feel free to pick it apart if you want
  11. its a nice tribute to an icon in the hockey world eventhough he wouldnt have really liked it himself
  12. my votes in....and if no one minds i kinda wanna add alot comments on some of the things ive seen and throw my sign design expertise into the bunch. On the 3 boards here all of them seem to be kinda pushing the margins of the sign and at high speed (and just standing still) its really hard to read a sign when the text runs up to any of the 4 margins, it just kinda pulls you off the sign/billboard/banner. And me being kinda new opefully im not stepping on the toes of any you guys buy adding some of my opinions too
  13. to clarify more the sonics were named beacuse when the team joined the NBA Boeing was working on a supersonic jet that could rival the Concorde but the plane pardon my pun...never took off. and the name just stuck
  14. you would be right on the dodgers one and to correct you on that one grubstreet it was actually Indian Packing Company that they are named after beacuse in 1919 they give the team $500 for uniforms and equipment and the names been that ever sence
  15. well for Minnesota.... The Twins: Simple the twin cities (Minneapolis/St.Paul) The Vikings: For the rich history of the Vikings landing in the area and the fabled Kensington Runestone that was found in Alexandra Minnesota The Wild: For the wilderness in Minnesota and for the wild fans of hockey in the state (atleast thats what i read) The Timberwovles: Was approved in a name-the team contest and stands for the timberwolves that inhabit the north woods
  16. myself ive only been to one Newman Outdoor Field for the northern leagues Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks...which also has "hometown" boy Roger Maris's number 9 retired Newman Outdoor
  17. Minnesota Twins: Home state team Chicago Cubs: The loveable loosers Baltimore Orioles: Huge Cal Ripken Jr. Fan Green Bay Packers: Grew up in a Vikings household and just to be a rebel I beacame a Packer fan Minnesota Wild: Once again home state pride Colorado Avalanche: Filled the void till we got a team back Minnesota Timberwolves: State pride
  18. That would be: Jaromir Jagr, Rangers with 11 Million Dollars
  19. Unlike alot of Twins fans i really like the Metrodome. I mean what other stadium has a Swastika on the roof????? and who doesnt love getting blown outta the stadum onto Kirby Puckett drive I've got to broadcast some football games from the dome when i was college and to sit up there in the broadcast booth and look down on the field and all over the stadium you can apperciate the building....and then walking on the playing surface and looking up to the roof you feel so very small.
  20. heres my lowly submission....kinda plan but not much more i can add with out making it busy looking
  21. i used to like NHL replicas until they started glueing on the crest after like a year or so the stupid crest starts falling off and kinda turns to junk after that unless you know someone who can stitch on a crest really well to fake the authentic look.
  22. for me the black just leads to a visual overload you have mostly all cool colors and then adding the black just kinda hurts the eyes....not your fault....for some beginers who cant get color theory there is a great website out there Easy RGB its a great tool if your stuck on colors
  23. not bad except the state on the primary, the arrowhead juts out alittle higher than you have and the bottom part of the state is alittle wider and is out alittle more too.....its just nitpicky and all but other than that its a solid concept and as a Twinkee fan i wouldnt mind seeing our boys in that
  24. me im prolly the low person on the design totem pole, im an up and coming sign painter Ive helped paint a tear away banner for a small time high school in the area called the Bertha-Hewitt Bears nothing so big yet oh and parts of my design for a swimming record board for the Detroit Lakes Lakers is in the process of being worked on
  25. ill give that a try it just helps alot to have a fresh set of eyes look at
