  1. I reely dig the Reel Bros name!
  2. Now that you say it, yeah, it looks a bit like options 1, 2 and 3 of Orlando's finalists mashed together (see below). And it also gives me dejavu vibes of Milwaukee's flag redesign winner: In any case, it's still a nice design. What are your favorites in Rochester's contest?
  3. I just saw that their round 2 voting is now open, so I thought I'd bump this thread so the forumites can cast their vote. Plenty of rubbish in there but also some nice ones. Overall, I think this round has some nicer designs than the first round. To see all the entrants and cast your vote, follow this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc0_WGG7kHwBDCowjN0YCz8D3Na8x2k0Uku8hDTar4Hy_TLew/viewform Here are my five favourites: No. 0222 - A cross to symbolise St. Mary’s Hospital on the left, and an abstract Plummer Building (Mayo Clinic) on the right. No. 0246 - Three geese in V-flight formation, symbolising "dedication", "intuition" and "care" No. 0249 - A goose on the Zumbo River, in Mayo Clinic / IBM blue No. 0268 - A quartered cross to symbolise medical care, cardinal points on a compass, "debating, cooperating, or whimsically, elegant and having fun on the ice rinks" and geese "making a bee-line (or vee-line) for Rochester". I can't quite follow most of that symbolism, but hey, the design does look nice! No. 0281 - The North Star shining over Rochester
  4. Honestly, I really don't get why it's such a huge deal to many on here if a jersey template has already been used by some other adidas team at some point. That whole "cookie cutter argument" is a tired and petty trope. As long as a design suits the club well, looks nice and makes it unique in MLS, what gives? Nobody's gonna mistake the Dynamo for Bayern Munich because they also had tonal stripes in a previous season. Just like nobody mistook them for the German NT when they both shared a chevron design. Don't get me wrong: If some trends go overboard, like all the grey and BFBS kits this year, hells yeah, let's bash that. If a design violates your receptors, romp-and-stomp it and pluck the eyes out of anyone who disagrees. But demanding manufacturers to reinvent the wheel every single time for every single kit, for every single team, for every single season, that's just asking for too much. That's not about high standards or customer first, that's just being a spoiled, entitled gnat. Go and knit your own damn artisan hippie jerseys!
  5. I remember visiting Kralli in the Zoo am Meer when I was a kid. Good times!
  6. Portland Pioneers is an awesome name as well. And I can already see the team retaking this team photo with the exact same hairdos!
  7. Those are my faves so far. In any case, they should don caps like this:
  8. Something like ^ this ^ would be cool!
  9. Options 1 and 4 look like tramp stamps, but the other two are pretty decent.
  10. Woah, that logo is redefining beauty it’s so marvellously ugly! All their fans must feel like the proudest parents in the world!
  11. I'd dig that too! That's maybe something a future MLS team could pull off - has a certain Bayern München style to it, after all.
  12. What a shame! I love the use of negative space and the speed lines on the current F1 logo.
  13. This joy juice always gives me the giggles: http://gourmetsupplies.com.sg/377-large_default/kickapoo-joy-juice-canned-drink.jpg http://cdn6.bigcommerce.com/s-muq4v/products/3565/images/3822/893A__35260.1437882769.386.513.jpg?c=2
  14. Looks nice, but I can only decipher the N. Where are the other letters?
  15. Is Adidas’ pre-match shirt design supposed to celebrate censorship in Russia?
  16. Huge upgrade! Looks great on the kits as well:
  17. For those who can read German, here's an interesting interview with Adidas' designers: http://m.11freunde.de/interview/wie-die-chefdesigner-von-adidas-das-dfb-trikot-entwarfen?kompletter-artikel
  18. The sponsor logo is barely readable on the golden kit. I'd either color the sponsor black and place the stripes on top and below, or just make the two stripes one big one.
  19. Really good basis you got there. The main thing that irks me is how the bat is pinned on to the basketball lines, like some butterfly in a museum. Give the poor thing more room to breathe! Maybe let the lines end with pointy tips or claws before they even touch the bat. As for colors - yeah, they're gaudy, but it works for this identity.
