  1. I agree. I think it's an attractive looking logo, but I also get some Dr. Manhattan + vinyl record vibes from it. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, per se. Those two things were just the first to come to mind when looking at the logo.
  2. Save for the advert on the stomach, these aren't too bad as a one-off. I wish there was a better color balance on the tops like the right leg of the shorts. But overall, they're not horrible. I mean, we've seen worse in pro sports in the 90s-00s. *cough*LA Burger Kings*cough*
  3. Does it work if I remove the outline completely? When I first envisioned the logo, I wanted the 'AH' to be a different color than the '!' to draw more attention to the exclamation mark. Thanks for drawing that up sparky! I'll trace it and see how it looks when it's digitized. I appreciate all the comments, guys.
  4. Finally got some time to work on this. I added a couple additional color options. Thoughts?
  5. This is exactly what the Rams should do. The logo they have had since 2000 is a damn decent logo. I'd understand the want for LA to leave it behind but it's a fantastic logo that looks great in the old color scheme. I'd hate for it to go only to see some boring 'LA' monogram, which I feel will be the case, unfortunately. Good work.

    Super Bowl IVXX

    Reggie BKush is the obvious choice
  7. Thanks sparky! That's a great idea and I'll try to execute that in conjunction with what @darkpiranhahad suggested as well.
  8. That's what I worried about. I have these saved on my computer that were drafts before I sought critique on the logo I posted above. For these, I felt as though they were lopsided, had issues with angles and line weights, and that maybe the stripe through the crossbars was too superfluous for a monogram. Though the initial purpose was to add the illusion that the teal was a part of the exclamation mark and crossbar of the H, simultaneously. I did, however, try out a banner-like effect to see what the mark would look like if the striping pattern through the crossbars did continue. Is there anything in the drafts that worked well, perhaps better, than in the logo I initially posted?

    As you can probably tell by my new username, I've decided it was time for a personal brand. I actually had been working on this monogram logo for a while. My initials are AH. So, I thought that I could do something neat with the interjection, "ah!" that my initials naturally produce. I juggled ideas between AH! Design, AH! Graphics, and AH! Creative. I decided on the latter, simply because it opens up many different avenues. My username, I wanted to be AH! Creative, but since the '!' isn't allowed, I settled on AHcreative. Nevertheless, here is the logo that I finished a couple months ago. I would appreciate any and all suggestions to improve it. Thanks! EDIT: I am also very open to color suggestions. I do like cooler colors: shades of minty green to shades of electric blue, mixed with silvers, grays, blacks, etc.
  10. This one is getting to me in a weird way like no other death has. I've never been a basketball fan, I don't think I've seen as much as 2 full minutes of Kobe playtime, yet, this one is effecting me pretty harsh. This man was only 41 years old. He was with his daughter. They were going to a youth basketball game together, something I'm sure they were both looking forward to. Then, all of the sudden, they weren't. Kobe had only been retired for a few years, he's leaving behind a wife, three other children, and one on the way. I can't even imagine with his wife and kids are going through. I'm on the exact opposite spectrum of life: unmarried, no kids. But damn, this just makes me really sad. I thought 2020 was gonna bring some bright changes to overturn some of the misery of the past few years. What a tragedy. RIP Kobe.
  11. Same. I did a search as well and couldn't find anything. I wonder if somehow he got his username switched back to whatever the original was.
  12. Aw man, I remember this. Was he banned or did he just fizzle out?
  13. Finally. I like my surname well enough, but I guarantee no one here knows how to pronounce it nor do many even know it's my name. I too like the idea of having a pinned thread where we all put OLD USERNAME >> NEW USERNAME.
  14. Ah, I missed it last week. @Kramerica Industries, If it means anything, I would have picked Kansas City and Green Bay. Anyway... Super Bowl LIV Champions: Kansas City Chiefs
  15. I can't believe that neither New England nor New Orleans will be playing in the Divisional Round this year. It's even more surprising that both teams made the playoffs but lost in the Wild Card round. Though, I'm not complaining... My money's on all four home teams. Minnesota vs. San Francisco Tennessee vs. Baltimore Houston vs. Kansas City Seattle vs. Green Bay
  16. I really like these. I'm not a fan of the recent decision of black vs white ASG jerseys. I assume most of us feel the same way. Count me in as a fan of the logos on the sleeves as well. The only thing I'm not feeling about these are the Tennessee Titans-esque numbers. I'd go with a more traditional font.
  17. I'm gonna go against the grain for the AFC this weekend: Buffalo over Houston Tennessee over New England The NFC, on the other hand, I'll stick with the odds: New Orleans over Minnesota Seattle over Philadelphia
  18. Wow, these are all fantastic. My favorite of the series so far are probably your first two, the New York teams. I love the Islanders Pride uniforms.
  19. Green Bay vs. Detroit NY Jets vs. Buffalo Miami vs. New England Chicago vs. Minnesota LA Chargers vs. Kansas City Cleveland vs. Cincinnati New Orleans vs. Carolina Atlanta vs. Tampa Bay Indianapolis vs. Jacksonville Philadelphia vs. NY Giants Arizona vs. LA Rams Pittsburgh vs. Baltimore Tennessee vs. Houston Oakland vs. Denver Washington vs. Dallas San Francisco vs. Seattle
  20. Other than the color orange, there really aren't any similarities between the Bengals and the Browns aesthetically speaking. That being said, I do like the concept. It would definitely look better with the current helmet, though. But it's a fun idea nevertheless.
  21. I like the idea behind the Vegas logo, but in reality, I'm not sure it could work for an NHL team. That's no fault of your own, I just think that any logo designed to mimic a neon sign would look very beer league. As far as L.A. goes; that crown is one of the best-shaped I've seen for a Kings concept. It maintains the charm of the original logo without being too detailed. The squares along the band are too small, however. The logo for the Coyotes seems a bit off. To me, it looks like it's stuck between the current logo and the polygonal Kachina-style coyote. I do really like the idea of the one shoulder patch placed on the side which the coyote faces. At first I thought Vancouver looked kinda lack-luster. But I came around to it. The idea of making the crosshatching in the shapes of hockey sticks and axes is brilliant, especially considering the plaid pattern it emulates when viewed from afar.
  22. I hate it, but that doesn't mean I hate it. I would like to see the rest of the O6 for sure.
  23. Houston vs. Tampa Bay Buffalo vs. New England LA Rams vs. San Francisco Pittsburgh vs. NY Jets New Orleans vs. Tennessee Carolina vs. Indianapolis Cincinnati vs. Miami Baltimore vs. Cleveland Jacksonville vs. Atlanta NY Giants vs. Washington Detroit vs. Denver Oakland vs. LA Chargers Arizona vs. Seattle Dallas vs. Philadelphia Kansas City vs. Chicago Green Bay vs. Minnesota
  24. First off - those Panthers sweaters are gorgeous. Dallas actually could work if the space theme used just silver and white starbursts. As is, it looks too photo-realistic to work. Tampa Bay and Winnipeg are the most 90s things I've seen this month... I love them.
  25. I like the ambitious approach in creating a new logo for each team. You started off pretty strong with New Jersey but it could use a few tweaks: The NJ logo reminds me of the proposed one drawn up by the wife of the Devil's owner at that time. I don't know if you drew inspiration from that or not, but nevertheless it's superior to the aforementioned. The unused logo on the mothership looks like it was a bitmap trace that wasn't smoothed out properly and I'm seeing a little of that in your logo. Namely in the devil horns atop the J. The bottom should be more curved and less trapezoidal. That would allow you to fix the issue that is the awkward triangle cutout in the negative space. The shoulder striping for Chicago is awesome. Definitely not something I've seen a lot of around here on hockey concepts. That being said, I think that the sleeve striping could be simplified or eliminated altogether to balance out the jerseys. The logo is nice, very simple, but nice. It's weird seeing a Blackhawks concept without the Native American head, but I understand the approach and it's not bad. The problem with your Panthers logo is that it took me way too long to realize that the blue portion was the ear and that the eye was the red shape to the right. After I realized this, I thought that the logo could be fixed and it wasn't another "back to the drawing board" type. First and foremost, you need to adjust the ear and eye. The ear's shape should be reworked and/or rotated so that it doesn't give the illusion that it's the eye. The eye needs to be more prominent; it needs to stand out and draw focus to itself. Like I said, it took me a while to see what this logo was trying to portray. The neck of the panther is too thick, at least from its current perspective. I would add some highlights or extend the angle of the neck. Chisel it out a bit. Oh, and Djruggs is right. I know you're basing the design off of Florida's flag but it comes across too confederate, especially on the white jersey. I really like the Islanders. The only piece of advice I have is to outline the anchor in navy to give it some separation from the 'NY.' For the Blues... The idea is good but it's a miss for me. The music note/arch combo looks more like a disjointed pair of stick-figure walking legs. The striping pattern is too busy for my tastes as well. I do like the single-outlined numbers though.
