  1. Hi DawgPac, Using the art deco Chysler Building elements looks really cool! But as others said above, the bridge motive reminds more of San Francisco... So, instead of the bridge, how about a different motive on the shield? Maybe you could try a version of the crest with the Chrysler Building gargoyles/eagles?
  2. For some reason the new logo reminds me a lot of Caterpilar, with the color scheme and the triangle in the N. I realise they had the yellow and black going before as well, but it still looks much more 'CAT' than the old logo did...
  3. I feel they should have designed the owl shorter or something. As it hangs in there now, it kinda make one boob a bit saggy...
  4. Hehehe! These WBPA concepts are funny as hell!!! May I suggest some more internationals? BPC Bayern München, sponsored by Augustiner Edelstoff Hamburger Wunderkinder, sponsored by St. Pauli Girl or Astra Brussels Manneken, sponsored by Delirium Tremens Ganbei Qingdao (干杯青岛), sponsored by Tsingtao Royal Saudi Haram Club, sponsored by... errr what? Who the f*** needs sponsors?!
  5. By the way, is anyone at Texas Southern University upset that the wordmark on their helmets is so close to Texas A&M? And are they also upset about the bevelling? Looking into their situation might give you some additional arguments, especially about brand confusion.
  6. Hi Old Main, I am a newby on these boards myself, so what I write might not have much clout, but I think you would be able to present your point better if you are able to sum it up better. The way you are bombarding your audience with your ranting manifesto without warning kills any interest to seriously read through all of it and as Darth Brooks put it... In other words, in order for you to win any argument it has to make business sense. And as for any business case, people will only give you their attention if the executive summary can stir their interest. So, think of a PowerPoint presentation slide as an example and sum up every argument you have in a concise bulletpoint that also includes a branding issue - each point no longer then 1 line. I give it a try and attempt to sum up your 5 most compelling arguments: The bevel highlights are graphically incorrect and illogical, tainting the smart image of the university The logo is constantly dispayed inconsistently (on helmets, merchandise and signages) which is diluting the brand The logo with bevelling is harder to reproduce properly on Merchandise - and more expensive The bevelling makes the wordmark hard to read when reproduced in small scale - and hence diluting the brand Several surveys show that ca. 75% of readers (consisting of current students and alumni) prefer a non beveled logo Was that so difficult? When you have summed up your most important points, I am sure you will be able to fit them on half a page. And then maybe people will read it and take them seriously. Oh, and avoid any ranting, sarcasm, humor, etc. If you want to make a business case, then there is no room for that. I hope this helps! Good luck with your cause!
  7. Haha! Call me crazy but I actually dig those designs from Marseille and Inter.
  8. Rumor has it that they will be looking something like this...
  9. Same here! The brown kits are awesome!!!
  10. Nice concept! But like others said, add the feathers on the hat as well. Otherwise the C looks too generic IMHO.
