  1. This is a fantastic update, colors-wise, and you're doing a lot of things really right. However, I think this set fails to solve the lack of life in the current set. I think the font, although not a horrible choice, could be something a little more aquatic, or at least have the R swoop. And I love your stingray, but the shape he creates is really awkward. I think part of it is that that big white shape takes up so much space, and pushes the details to the fringe. I think having a stingray logo that could stand on its own on a cap would really elevate this set, along with a more lively RAYS wordmark. (I love your idea for a Tampa Bay script tho)
  2. I was just at Red Rocks a couple weeks ago and I remarked on how much I liked a lot of their branding.
  3. I think it's ridiculous to say he's having a meaningless career. Just because he hasn't really played in the playoffs doesn't mean he hasn't had one or the best careers in modern baseball history, and he's only 29. It's not insignificant just because it didn't happen in October.
  4. It's not the hot dog itself I have the biggest issue with, it's the bend of it. It just looks badly lined up.
  5. I think I get what you were going for, but the bent hot dog bat is not working. It just looks like it was badly connected, and not quite like what I'd like. The duck itself is a fantastic piece of design, why add more to it?
  6. I mean I just love baseball, and I will watch as much of it as I can. I love to see a good 12 or 13 inning game end in a walk-off, but the new rules make the 10th inning such that it makes or breaks you. I'd rather see a team win a game because they strung together a rally in the bottom of the 11th than a team that won because they were able to sac bunt and sac fly better than the other team.
  7. really? I absolutely hated watching the end of the Phillies game, even as a Phillies fan. That rule might just be the worst thing about baseball right now. All 3 games today that went to extra innings ended as 1-run games in 10 innings in less-than-exciting fashion. It's not making the game better at all. Sure, it's speeding up the game. But anyone who's watched 9 innings of baseball already is absolutely ready to watch a few more. But instead of more baseball, you have this weird game that will inevitably turn into 1-out, runner on 3rd, try to hit a sac fly. That's not baseball.
  8. The Tampa flag is amazing. I wish more flags embraced weirder shapes. That said, an update is in order, although I hope they don't sterilize it too much.
  9. Ooh I love this. May I suggest the angels back to red & yellow? The Phillies back to powder blue & maroon? The cubs back to blue and gold? The cardinals to red and powder blue? The twins to Purple and blue? The Indians Cleveland Baseball Team to just blue/black?
  10. I'm gonna be honest, the copper really takes away from the concept imo. I think you have a very sleek, modern look, and then pair it with a rustic color,a nd it doesn't do your design justice. I'd maybe go blue/black/white? or blue/blue/white? Or even a galaxy purple?
  11. I'm gonna be honest, I don't love the Pittsburgh Stallions. I think there's more that can be made out of a team name like that. The current design has some slight legibility issues, and I don't think it has as much character as some of your other designs. That said, I love the voyageurs. I wonder if putting the M in a color other than white would make it more clear the face of the voyageur in the back. May I suggest powder blue? \ I'm sad to see the old Suns wordmark go because I loved it, but this is a nice evolution. And I absolutely love the tridents. It's maybe not quite era-accurate, but it looks fantastic.
  12. I can't wait to watch the 30 for 30 on the '78 Toros. What happened there? As for the concepts- I'm absolutely in love with some of the simpler designs: LA, Boston, Atlanta (twice)! The name that has been bouncing around in my head is San Diego Sandcastles, but that feels a little Brandiose to be major league. I'm also curious to see if you stick to classic color schemes for places like Pittsburgh, Miami, and New Orleans.
  13. As a Philadelphian, I know a lot of us absolutely hate the look of the Comcast Technology Center (or "the middle finger") and I really don't mind it not being included in a logo of the skyline. Liberty One/Two and the Mellon center are the most iconic philly skyscrapers, and the other iconic buildings are all smaller (city hall, PECO, etc). Also I know this is not the point but I kinda hate the direction Philly development is going. All the new big buildings have ugly logos on them (FMC, WSFS) , and I hate the fact that they're building up west philly even more. FMC Tower is especially heartbreaking, and breaks up the skyline in a way I really don't like
  14. I've been lurking on this thread since its inception, and I am overwhelmed with the consistent quality, creativity, and beauty of this extraordinary number of concepts. This is an outstandingly huge series and you knocked it out of the park. I'm sad to see it over but I thoroughly enjoyed seeing each concept, and I love the cohesiveness of each set, and the little quirks put into each and every school's set.
  15. I'm also a teenager, although I did find this community when I was 11, and spent a year or so lurking. I find this form of social media (if you can even call it that) so much more friendly, fun, and productive than places like reddit and the like.
  16. These are fantastic! I personally love the new Fox bug, and I loved the old "FOX box", but I find I hate the flat, non-gradiented score bugs. The ESPN ones also have always looked great imo.
  17. New mexico flag beats a C any day, sorry @DTConcepts. My rankings: 1. New mexico 2. Arizona 3. South Carolina 4. Maryland 5. Colorado HM: California
  18. I don't hate this case of "sans-serif lowercase". Considering it's basically the same as the old logo, minus the circle, it's a lateral move for me. Watching the video though, a lot of their other icons look fantastic and it seems like they put together a pretty good, cohesive package. Overall, an upgrade.
  19. It's an incredibly recent example, I know, but I have no doubt that in 10 years, seeing pictures of Machado and Tatis in the blue/white Padres uniforms will look weird.
  20. Woohoo! I'm very proud of myself for my first ever gold medal here. But what makes this so special was how many great entries there were in this event. Just about every single one was a high quality, well-put-together identity, and I especially applaud @Josef_Bretones and @scottyeagle for their medal-winning entries as well. Thank you, and good luck.
  21. The Seoul Owls were so good that when I checked the KBO article on the main site here, I thought they forgot the Owls. I then realized they were a fake team that somehow just got burned into my mind as a real team. Just about all of these look great, and you've really nailed the aesthetic of the league.
  22. Fantastic entries all around, wow! If I had to cut it to three, Gold- 6 Silver- 8 Bronze- 2
  23. It's been a long time coming, but I finally won my first Logolympiad medal! Thanks to everyone who voted to me, and congrats to @Bruins and @scottyeagle for their well-deserved medals.
