  1. OKC = New York Knicks rip-off The Nuggets totally ripped off the Pistons look, who of course took their design tips from the Miami Heat. I could go on about the similarities between uniforms in the league. The pinstripes were a throwback to when the Hornets were in town, they are continuing that look on the side panels. I think they should have kept the pinstripes on the main part, but claiming they are ripping off another team because they modify how they recognize the NBA's past in the city is ridiculous. The font is the same one they have been using since the team was formed, its the same as the one they used with their previous set, and a non-italicized version of the font they used on their first uniform. The type of complaints I've read here makes it seem like they switched from the 2nd set to their 1st set (which would be a downgrade). But then again the majority of people here seem to think their first set was not only great but the best they've worn. This set isn't amazing, I think the set they had is better, and that if they really wanted to update their look they should have introduced new design elements (finding a place for the light blue, reducing the amount of orange, and modify the side paneling maybe) instead of overhauling the look, but its not as terrible as everyone is saying. I'll agree the Cats thing is dumb, unless they change their name, they should have reserved that for a future alternate orange jersey, they definitely lose points there. These are middle of the road unis that could be greatly improved by tweaks, these are not bottom of the barrel uniforms. Basically they aren't great, but there is a lot of overreacting in this thread
  2. Gotcha, I feel bad for you, as your work forces you to over-analyze this stuff. And by that I mean you can't help but see the small things (not that you are over-obsessing about it), most can overlook that stuff, but it stands out to you whether you want it to or not. Not that you need pity, I mean if you were a Kennesaw State fan it'd be an issue, because it would keep you from enjoying something that you should be able to enjoy (at least on some level), but I'm sure that same awareness to those details makes the great logos that much more amazing.
  3. OK. I think I see it. The 2nd feathers on either side seem to stick out a little too much. They should really all fall within the same curve as if the wings were a consistent strong. Is that it? yea its mostly in the feathers. ive heard the same thing from others via twitter. i guess its one of those things where once you see it you cant unsee it. also the long yellow lines t the top of the wings seem odd to me. it could be where they drew a line and applied a brush stroke to it. it at least has the same end result. then you have the shadowing on the left side of the face, but the highlights elswhere suggest light is coming from the top down. for a guy/crew who has done work as amazing as UConn and Baylor i really expected a bit more I believe the lines you are referring to represent Kennesaw Mountain, which can be seen from the campus and has been used in logos for decades. And the feathers are not a perfect representation of a wing span but they do fall in line with the real life thing. The feathers are not all consistent and the top few (in this case 4, in others 3), are curved completely different from the rest of the feathers.
  4. I prefer my logos be consistent, its always weird when you see one version of the logo and then the next and all of a sudden they have features that have come out of nowhere.
  5. Yeah the only acceptable reason for building another stadium would be to put one on campus. Then again by the time the football team takes the field I'll be an alumni so that really won't matter. And its not like there is anywhere to put it, the soccer practice field (formerly the playing field) isn't far enough away from the Baseball field, they would have to move both the softball field and baseball field over to create room, and even then I don't think it would be enough. No matter what the stadium is going to be off campus, and I don't think its a good idea to hike student fees up anymore just so Soccer and Football can play on the same days at the same time (because that's the only valid reason for building a second stadium). Hey Bravebird, can you ask about a "Custom Font" basically will the font we see on the new logo (and the modified version of it in the KS logo) will be used for the numbers on some/all teams or if it will be limited to just the lettering and logos.
  6. I'm hearing that too. In an interview I had with Vaughn Williams, the AD, in the fall I was told the football team will have its own stadium eventually. Until one is built he said the team would start play in KSU Stadium, which has about 9,000 seats for soccer. The stadium was actually intentionally designed to handle a Phase II...which is why there is a giant concrete walkway once you enter through the gates. So, we might just see expansion on that one. I'm going to interview him again to do the story on the new logos, so perhaps I'll drop some questions in about these stadium rumors swirling around. They need to modify the KSU Soccer Stadium, there's no need for a new one, especially since the soccer team will never fill that stadium.
  7. That's the original one, the problem is the S overhangs on the left side, since they are making the S symmetrical in the new version it should overhang the same amount on both sides. If they did that I don't think they would have to make any changes as to where it overlaps. I hope they realize this before it gets plastered all over campus, I will definitely be sending them a letter. I you even out the overhang, then the left side is too close to the left side of the K. The mid point of the K, where the two segments meet, is not centered, so it would actually look too bunched on one side. I'm suggesting they stretch out the S, not simply move it over.

  9. They never use that color, it's used for the volleyball court lines and half of the seats in the convocation center (the basketball stadium) are Burgundy with the others being gold. Other than a few banners around campus (none of which deal with athletics), and the attire the people who work in the commons (food court) wear its virtually non-existent. I wish they would, its still a school color but its never been and likely never will be used for athletics, which raises the question as to why its still a part of the scheme.
  10. The announcement came out of nowhere, he probably doesn't even know about it, I only know cause my former RA posted on facebook about the unveiling just before it happened.
  11. Kennesaw State unveiled a new logo and I assume a new font. At the moment its just the primary logo that has been released, I'm assuming the secondary logo will be just the Owl (as it can be seen on the new merchandise made available online) and the interlocking KS logo will be updated, and likely adopted by more sports than just Baseball and Softball. Sorry they are all links I don't post here enough to be able to put pics in, feel free to actually put them into your responses Link to the announcement Announcement The other logos will be unveiled August 20th. Here's a look at variations of the logo, right now they are only visible on merchandise, and sadly the biggest versions of the logos are on the vintage shirts so most of these have that fake fading applied to them. the Head: Owl Plus full Body: Interlocking KS Logo: So... Can we please get an entry for KSU on the logos page!? Football team starts play in 2014 3rd largest 4-year college in the state of Georgia (behind only uga and Georgia State), been competing at the D1 level since 2006 (or was it 2005), what else needs to be done?
  12. Nike might have put the numbers on there and all but each National Team has to sign off on them still, and if they don't like it they don't have to have it. This is what I hate about people on those boards constantly ripping Nike a new one, because for every idea and concept, for however good or bad it is, each team or client has to sign off on it, so ultimately its their choice, not Nikes. The Swoosh is simply coming up with new ideas and introducing them in their concepts, but they don't say if it goes on the field or not. Thats the teams choice. Well, yes, obviously the teams order and apply their own numbers, but part of the blame still must go to the designers of the numbers in this case. Why are we designing numbers that don't work on a very common shirt color (white)? Put those same exact numbers on a Blue (or any colored shirt) and you have perfectly good numbers. White numbers go on colored backgrounds, Silver numbers should likewise be placed on colored backgrounds, it's not Nike's fault that the USSF elected to put silver numbers on a white shirt. If you place the blame on Nike for designing numbers that don't work on a white shirt then EVERY COMPANY that has ever designed white numbers needs to be blamed. Simple, they went for colors, the USSF went with Silver, the numbers used against Brazil were the same as those in the pics you posted except Navy instead of green and red. Just look at the pics you posted of the US kits through the years, the 2012 #s are clearly Silver with Navy dots and a Navy Outline, the ones they wore against Brazil switch the Silver and the navy keeping the navy outline. Poland and Portugal are doing the same thing but instead of silver dots they went with white dots.
  13. The USSF applies the numbers and the lettering, Nike supplies them but they only give what is ordered. The USSF ultimately decided they wanted the platinum numbers that are on the away kits (or at the very least are similar to those numbers) to be on their home kits and applied them. Most teams, organizations and schools handle the numbers by themselves, they typically get them from their uniform supplier(s) and then do the application (it is much easier to deal with in-house application than relying on a factory to get the numbering and lettering right). The fault isn't with Nike for making the dot-patterned numbers. They can be completely legible. The problem was the USSF ordering numbers that were essentially indistinguishable from the main shirt color. Like with the NFL redesign, I think there may be a little too much "Nike Blame" going on here. I'm not blaming Nike, in fact quite the opposite. The dot matrix numbers are lighter, more flexible, and I assume better ventilated than solid numbers.

  15. And the women and U-## teams wore what were essentially Germany's black kits in their respective world cups last summer
