  1. Well, I'd take the one on the bottom left as a glass-half-full-kinda-flag and the one bottom right as marking the meeting point to clink the glasses. Both will look beautiful on beer labels and coasters in any case.
  2. Second that! Though it kinda reminds me of the Sportfreunde Siegen.
  3. Agreed. Anyway, it was just some random thought that crossed my mind.
  4. Daaayumm! Those shorts are off the hook!!
  5. It just occured to me that those are almost LAFC colors, while the blue and yellow is almost the same color scheme like LA Galaxy. Maybe they saw LAFC's launch and the favorable feedback to it and it got them thinking "well, navy and gold ain't so bad after all..."
  6. I got some ideas but I'm not from OKC. Are you only looking for submissions from Oklahomans, or is this open to anyone no matter where you're from?
  7. They only really need to know the ones and zeros, though...
  8. That's a really well done icon... for creampies!
  9. Three teams play in Canada.One star for each Canadian team?
  10. Well done! The two logos on top look solid!
  11. Well, since NYC FC is now the brand in question here, how would you rank that one compared to San Jose Clash, Miami Fusion, Tampa Bay Mutiny and Real Salt Lake?
  12. That Japan shirt is in memory of Fukushima, no?
  13. I think one could even say that NYC FC is arguably the most inclusive name possible in regards to New York's ethnic neighborhoods, because the "City Name + FC (or SC/AC/etc.)" team name formula is pretty much the universally common style accross the globe - whether in Latin America, on the Balkan or on the British Islands, you find City Name FCs everywhere you look!
  14. I see your point, but your post also gives me hope as you came up with some ideas straight away."The Boroughs" has a nice ring to it actually
  15. While "City" is the most obvious nickname in the running, I hope fans and media can come up with some more creative alternatives as well...
  16. The best solution for NYC is when the team/fans/media/etc. come up with organic unofficial nicknames for the team. Something nice would stick eventually, I reckon. If it'd be "City" or something more creative and unique we shall see...
  17. Me too! There were some nice mock ups making the rounds already, but of course they're only fan concepts.
  18. By the way... What is the main application of your "Graffiti Of War" logo about actually? Is it for a publication (website or print), or an exhibition, or what is it?
  19. GatorHunter, please don't take my previous post as a discouragement. I realize that you came here with the best intentions with your work and all I have done was being an uber ass. I guess some more contructive feedback would serve you better. So here are some pointers... 1) Take it to pen and paper and start from there. Later you can still scan it and play around with PS. 2) The "Graffiti Of War" word mark should be in tag style, as it is a bit too long for a style with fill in. So practice "tagging it", until you've found a tag that looks cool as a whole and where the individual letters fit neatly to each other. 3) The "GOW" is more suitable for an artwork with fill in. Given what it stands for, I would propose a blocky silver style with sharp edges and/or some dirty outlines with messy drips. I hope that helps and I am curious what you can come up with. Again, sorry for my bluntness before.
  20. Honestly?! It looks like you used some of these whack graffiti fonts you'd find on dafont.com or something. If you ask anyone out of the graffiti community, that is pretty much the lowest form of style biting there is. And if you really can't draw up something yourself - by hand! - then at least chose some font that is not such an ugly toy style. Graffiti produces some of the best caligraphy and lettering of modern times, but also some of the worst... Sorry for being so blunt.
  21. When you visualize the logo more in it's applications, on sportswear and other apparel, it's actually a very nice design. Of course it will take some time until it will "scream Reebok", but it will happen eventually once people are more familiar with the new look.
  22. What you say would make a lot of sense if a majority of the NYCFC supporters were up in arms about the logo options... That said, I kind of fail to see 1) that there is actually a strong and vocal "fan base" in place already, 2) that none of the given options pleases the crowds already, and 3) that there is any concencus what the ideal logo would look like if it's not the shield or roundel that are on the ballot now.
  23. In the 1st logo you almost have a capital J going in the negative space between bird and circle. Maybe it would look cool if you can find a way to make that more visible. I love logos with good use of negative space.
  24. Really nice set, both home and away. How about using a navy colored box for the numbers (in white) on the home shirt? That could then resemble the "star section" of the US flag in a way...
