  1. Interesting! I normally use Wikimedia for most of my SVG logo needs, but I wasn't aware about the other site so I'll definitely have to take a look at that. I don't use Illustrator so I won't be able to use image trace, but I can work with new websites/digging around for random sponsors. Thanks for the heads up!
  2. It all looks great! Everything stands solid on its own and works perfectly together as a whole! It's hard to pick favorites, but there are some real solid ones all over - Monterey, Reno, Chico, Mammoth Lakes, Olympic LA, Solvang, Visalia, and Fresno all stand out to me personally, but they're all great imo. Great job, and looking forward to the designs and cities for CSL2 (bigger cities like Riverside, Irvine, and Chula Vista seem like shoo-ins, but maybe more obscure places like Morro Bay? Lake Havasu? Owens Valley?)! Also, how do you end up finding these logos for the sponsors? I always have trouble finding editable SVG versions of a lot of sponsor logos!
  3. This last batch looks great! I love Barstow's unique color scheme and OC's unique sun pattern on their jersey, but I think Long Beach is the best look of the bunch (which is good cause that would probably be my team in this universe!). Not the bridge I would've expected for a team based around the harbor (Vincent Thomas technically isn't in Long Beach but I associate it with the area more), but it's still a clean look overall! As for putting a team in Mendocino... well, not much there to work off of, I'm afraid. It's a big place for growing and selling weed, but I think that some people might not be thrilled with the idea to say the least. They do have Glass Beach, though! It's an old dumping site for glassware and pottery that eventually got eroded and cleaned into this stretch of coast that's just covered with millions of small rounded pieces of glass. Maybe you could go for a look similar to what Oakland Roots does? Keeping the jerseys mostly limited to two colors with a very colorful logo could be a great look. Great job as always!
  4. Seconding this - I always thought that brown and powder blue with light brown accents would be a fantastic combo for a team, and Mammoth would be a shoo-in for this. I'll also mention that the ski resort comes out with a unique beanie every year, so there is definite crossover potential there with the team. It could make for a strikingly different clash kit, though if you go with brown as a main color, it would probably have to be relegated to either a third or goalie kit (most of their hats are dark colors that might be too close to brown). Since you're working in the 2019 season, here are the hats for the 18/19 and 19/20 ski seasons. 18/19: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1088/7534/products/2019-09-26_MM_PM_MammothBeanie-19_7597822b-2a31-459b-a07f-7c90eed176ea.jpg?v=1573156483 19/20: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/14/48/73/1448739747c978c09e33cd1fceb0985a.jpg
  5. I remember this thread from back in the day! Nice to see everything get slowly digitized. Everything so far has a solid, believable look, and I have very few quips/ideas (but still a couple!). With Roses, I adore the thorn striping on the home and the use of rose gold on the clash, but I worry about differentiation of colors. Pink vs white can work as a kit matchup, but it's a little bit of an edge case and you could argue for it either way. I think that Pasadena would benefit the most from having a clash kit with more red - matches with the rose theme, and you could still use the rose gold in a tasteful way. You could honestly flip the colors on the clash kit as they are right now and it could probably work out still! Monterey is class too, the badge has the right amount of modernization, and the kits still pop. Long term, I'm not sure about the flag-themed clash, and I don't envy you - it's a very difficult flag to put on a jersey. My only idea at this point is to look at how other teams incorporate flags on kits and see if anything strikes you. Barca usually finds interesting ways to incorporate the Senyera, and Athletic Bilbao is usually good for a kit based off of the Basque ikurrina. As it stands, though, you could probably stick with this look and most people would be totally fine with it (including me, this is just nitpicking at this point). If you kept the look, maybe a white/black version could work as a theoretical third kit? Beyond those two minor quips, I've got nothing else to say - great job, all around!
  6. That could definitely work too - there's a large ADF presence around the city, notably at Shoalwater Bay where there's a training ground/dugong habitat.
  7. Looking good! Big fan of the new looks, especially the new pelican for Mariners and Dunedin's Gaels. For ideas, a quick and easy one is that Penrith has their NRL team, the Panthers - maybe Sporting Club Panthers? It's also on the Cumberland Plain, so maybe there's a name somewhere there. For Rockhampton, I know a little more. It was the centerpiece to multiple gold rushes (in Canoona and Mount Morgan), have history with the Archer brothers (Scottish farmer brothers that were some of the first Europeans to explore central Queensland), and is nowadays one of the big agricultural centers of the north (mainly in cattle, they have seven bull statues around the city called the Big Bulls). The area also has multiple references to Capricorn since the tropic passes just south of the city, so that could be a fun mascot idea. Maybe a rampant bull and goat/serow surrounding a shield? You could honestly go a million routes with them, even more if you included other nearby cities - Mackay produces a third of Australia's sugar, and Gladstone is a gateway to the barrier reef.
  8. My main goal at the outset of the tournament was to make it into the round of 16, so I am more than happy to settle for 4th overall. Great job to everyone who participated, especially to all the other semifinalists - @raysox (well deserved 3rd place win), @gswansea (the probable champion and my vote for the final) and @Lafarge (well fought on our semifinal matchup, you definitely had the better concept between us), as well as host @rsaline! Can't wait for the competition four years from now, and who knows? Maybe I'll even give a shot at Logolympiad or something!
  9. Morocco By the way, @rsaline, will there be a third place game for us to vote on?
  10. Well fought, @Victormrey, I thoroughly enjoyed your concept! Egypt (A1) vs. Australia (C1) (my matchup, good luck @rsaline! This is gonna be crazy close I feel) Sweden (F2) vs. Panama (G1) Morocco (B1) vs. France (C2) Mexico (F1) vs. Senegal (H1)
  11. Everything came down to the wire, but in the end only two of us could advance. Regardless, it was a well fought competition by you and @jaytavo305 in the group! Egypt (A1) vs. Spain (B2) (my matchup) (good luck @Victormrey!) Australia (C1) vs. Iceland (D2) Serbia (E1) vs. Sweden (F2) Panama (G1) vs. Colombia (H2) Saudi Arabia (A2) vs. Morocco (B1) France (C2) vs. Argentina (D1) Switzerland (E2) vs. Mexico (F1) England (G2) vs. Senegal (H1)
  12. Well done all around! Thanks again to @rsaline for putting this on, and may the best concept win! Group A (my group) Group B Morocco Spain Iran Portugal Group C Australia Denmark France Honduras Group D Argentina Iceland Nigeria Croatia Group E Serbia Switzerland Brazil Costa Rica Group F Sweden Mexico Germany South Korea Group G Panama England USA Tunisia Group H Japan Colombia Poland Senegal
  13. Got a design that I like a lot, and I wanted to throw some colors by everyone. For the design itself, I used LA's connection to art deco to come up with a shape that is partially based off of the Eastern Columbia Building. Threw on an art deco font as well (Lemon/Milk) to wrap it all up. For colors, I came up with three ideas. The first uses the colors of LA's flag (green, gold, and red) on a dark grey background. Think of LA Galaxy's third kit from a couple of years ago. The second uses the midnight blue and silver that @raysox used to recolor the original concept. The third is an out-of-the-box look that puts together dark green, orange, and yellow. I'm sure there's a good marketing angle you could spin for each of them (the orange represents the oranges grown in the region, et al.), but I personally like the first one the most. Lemme know what you guys think!
