  1. I really did want to introduce navy - for the first one, at first I had the ball navy - but it looked weird with no navy in the hat. can you try and think of where the navy should go? And the second one does need some MAJOR work. I just am not good at perspective / shadowing.any suggestions?
  2. Hi, I wanted to try and attempt to make a Cleveland Cavalier logo. I found the hat and modified it a bit. I'm definitely no Davidson - and I need a LOT of practice and C &C to make this better. For the first logo, I need to redo the basketball - I think the angle the lines are at makes the hat seem awkward. For the second logo I need help shading / lightening. Can someone give me pointers on where I should make the yellow meet the wine red?
  3. I hated their update in 97. Anyone else with me?
  4. You need to send this to them. Seriously. They should use this... And WHEN they do, you should lawyer up.
  5. Everyone including me waits... waits until you post your next concept - because every time you do, it's amazing-ness. 1. Someone at the white house needs to see that. I'm not joking either. 2. I am guilty of downloading and using the wallpaper. 3. Can I buy a print? 4. Submit that to http://1200posters.com/ - thannnnnnnnnnnnks
  6. first oil derrick second word mark (without dark blue)
  7. the more I learn with design (thanks to a lot of input on these boards) the more I do find that simpler is better. I loved the first logo and secondary - but not the first word mark. I liked the second work mark as font, but I didn't like the dark blue. I loved the oil drop in the word mark and definitely think you do need navy in there as it is used in the other logos, but not quite sure about the liquidify fill. Anyways, both are beautiful - definitely think the oil derrick looked better in the first logo

    I noticed ESPN U's logo, however, I have looked up a TON of companies that use this U / banner. It really resembles college. @KC51Design, holy cow. I was playing with that exact design - but yours is way better. I'm loving all the different colors. What font did you use for POCKET? What do you guys think of the name? Pocket U. I want to change it but I suck at naming things.

    Eh. This isn't sports related - but I've taken my sports related concepts here and got a lot of VALUABLE feedback so I appreciate that. I am hoping to show you a concept that I created as a logo. It's an open source platform that helps connect students in college. Kind of like an elgg for classrooms. Here is my logo. Please give me feedback. I might rename / redesign - so if you have any ideas for that as well, let me know. I hope I don't get flamed for bringing a non sports concept here. I just know guys like Frasier and others have a lot of valuable comments that I could take on design.
  12. I got bored on Sunday... Especially since the colts lost on Saturday and I did not care to watch anything to do with Football. haha.
  13. I would never copy and let it go unannounced.
  14. Oh my gosh. did you not read my last sentance?!?!?! or any of the discussion... !? I said I used the mountain from the colorado team.
  15. Didn't really think of all those trademark issues when I was coming up with this.
  16. No idea. but I kind of thought it was cool when the cardinals used the state flag of arizona http://sportslogos.n...ogo.php?id=2752 Right, but that wasn't their primary logo. If you use the city flag logo, anyone can make gear with it and sell it. Sure, it won't have the mountain thing behind it, but will it matter? Not to 90% of the gear-buying public. A team would be foolish to use a public logo so literally. Now it's possible to take a lot of inspiration from that logo and come up with something that is original and TMable... that's probably where I'd go with this one. Well, here is the actual city flag - and I agree with you. 100%.

  18. hey This one is not done. Where it swoops around the inside of the horseshoe I need to fix it so it's more even. 1. This is NOT meant to go on the helmets. The horseshoe is CLASSIC. Replacing the horseshoe would be like smackin' a B on the side of the browns helmet.. It just messes with tradition. Maybe it could work on shirts and stuff or in the center of the field. I just feel like teams in the NFL are starting to have great alternate logos.
  19. ??? I have no plan to do any of those?

AND since everyone hates the S logo - what would you recommend placing on the sleeves??!? And what do you think about an orange for a different color? I need to add one more color.
  21. @illwauk - I either need to make a better / wider mountain (washington -state is pretty mountainous.) or figure something better out. as far as the black one goes. you are absolutely right. I live in San Jose now... and their jerseys are teal, white, and black... but they have a lot of black in their logo which makes it obvious for black bein' an alternate... I just really like black and teal. It's different, and not every team uses it like they do blue. But I guess I'm being a hypocrite because I HATE when nfl teams use a gray facemask when gray isn't their colors. I.E. browns, colts. @lancebridwell... By you saying you hate the S logo do you mean the S with the head or the S with "seattle" ... I'm not really a fan of the S with the seattle one but it's the original metropolitans logo so I felt the need to keep it.... just kind of update it a bit.
  22. 1. Seattle Metropolitans name goes back to the beginning of the NHL. 2. The flag of Seattle logo is used here. images.google.com seattle flag. 3. everyone knows the seattle skyline - so I thought I should incorporate it. C& C please. Constructive. If you hate it give a reason why. I know - colorado's hockey team from the 70's used a mountain.
  23. It is the feather on his hat, I believe. Yeah, it is a feather- I should change it to be more feather-ish HA.
  24. I definitely need to work on the scripts. And please comments about copying the idea to yourself. I OBVIOUSLY accredited him for the great work he's thought of and I just wanted to execute it a little differently.
  25. Akronite posted a beautiful paint image that had a great idea behind it. I liked it so much that I had to see what I would do based on his concept and execute it in Photoshop. First of I LOVE the idea. I am sure this is frowned upon on the forums - but I changed it a lot in my opinion. He did the Cleveland Cavaliers rebrand... I changed it up and did the UVA (uni of Virginia Cavaliers) rebrand.
