    Time to go back to the Group of 5 with a team that needed a traditional yet modern feel and look to a team that once housed Big Ben of Steelers fame... so now lets return to the MAC and return to the Miami of the North...

    THE MIAMI REDHAWKS OF OHIO

    The MAC is accoused of having a catalog look to their teams... I think it's a lack of creativity so with two colours as primary with black as their second... I went with the Alt logo as the main helmet and use the primary logo as pants mark.... and you have a look that is a fusion of tradition, modern, sleek and is a :censored: ton better than their actual look.

     

    It has a lot to do with the fact that none of their teams share design elements besides the university name and logos...I'm not a fan of this look. Take the marks off and this could be any team. There's a pretty unique pattern that the women's teams have been adopting in recent years, I don't know the meaning behind it, but it's pretty unique and could be used across all of their sports pretty easily if it's not gender specific.

    No LeBron means I'm less interested that I otherwise would be.

     

    I'm the opposite here. I was getting sick of hearing how LeBron had no help around him, true or not, and if the LakeShow had made the playoffs this year, that's all we would have gotten. 

    I don't think I'll mind not hearing it this year. 

     

    -Bucks, Celtics, Sixers, Raptors

    -Warriors, Rockets, Thunder, Nuggets

    Looks like either the Sixers or the European Union! 🇪🇺

     

    Right now the stars feel separate from the logo. Maybe move that black outline outside of the stars, or have 6 stars directly above and 6 directly below the UBA wordmark (i.e. 3 in each unfilled section of the basketball).

     

    That's a good point. Here's how it looks with the tweaks you mentioned. I think i like the third one the best, but I'd still like some more opinions on it. Still just black and white for now. I'll experiment with colors once I'm satisfied with the design.

  4. Looking for a little help here. I made this logo the other day for a personal project, but something about it feels off and I can't really put my finger on it.

    It's for the United Basketball Association, 12 teams from other leagues came together and formed the UBA in the late 90s so I want to keep the 12 stars, but other than that anything can get chopped or altered. It's black and white for now because I don't have a color scheme in mind yet. 

    Anyway any C&C is welcome!

    I think it was supposed to be a football in front of a shield. But the silhouette made me instantly think of a man wearing a tricorner hat, and I couldn't unsee that. I also don't think there's enough contrast between the shades of brown. I do, however, appreciate the palette overall as being more out-of-the-box. Green and brown go great together and is an underused palette.

    I got a bit of that, too. I saw Peridot from Steven Universe, but that may have been because my niece was watching the show at the time. I think had you'd been able to work the ball into the shield that would have helped with that. It's a good idea and great color scheme as others have mentioned already.

    This one isn't going to be as extensive as the others since I'm unable to participate in all of the events, but I would like some feedback on the events I did enter into. I'm a beginner and mostly self-taught so I need all the help I can get. Be blunt, be brutal. 

     

    EVENT 1

    I wanted to go with something a little different in shape and style, but I think I swung and missed pretty hard here. Since I started with the acronym I had a hard time figuring out how to make the full text look good within the boundaries I had already set and it shows. Also, looking at the silhouette I used, it looks more like basketball in football pads than a depiction of "the catch." Anyway, what do you think?

  8. Caught the end of the Battle for the Victory Bell (Miami vs Cincinnati) after work. A pretty epic collapse by Miami leads to two touchdowns in less than 3 minutes and a 4 point loss for the Redhawks. They can (and probably will) say something about the officiating at the end of the game (there were a couple of pretty questionable decisions), but when you're up 11 with less than three minutes left, you should win that game. 

     

    If you're up 4 with less than 2 minutes left, have the ball, and need a first down to seal the game, you should also probably win that game. Instead, Miami took a delay of game penalty because the HC told the ref he was going to call timeout and then didn't actually do it, I guess? 3rd and 2 becomes 3rd and 7. Miami throws a pick 6. 

     

    Even with that, Miami had a chance to win it right at the end. The refs waved off a PI call in the endzone that was questionable (the defender had his arm around the receiver long before the ball got there.) The Bearcats have won this thing for 12 straight years.
