  1. Excellent work, @Conrad.! So many good ones there that I’d love to see in real life. I think Detroit, Utah, Toronto, Chicago, and Denver are my favorites.
  2. Surely there was a better way for the Cavs to pay homage to the Rock and Roll HOF than this. I totally get the concept, but that doesn’t make it good by any means. The sketching (?) effect on the number and “C” is actually pretty cool - they could’ve done that to the whole primary “Cleveland” wordmark or even the city one they’ve previously used, and that would’ve worked very well. What they did, however, does look like a ransom note (I got some Batman Forever Riddler vibes from it) and is just a bit much.
  3. Oh I love that! I hadn’t thought of Albertus, but that is a fantastic option indeed. I imagine a “WASHINGTON” wordmark would look great in that with your noted modifications as well.
  4. Part of me wishes Washington’s temporary branding was a bit more old-school. I feel like something similar to the old Senators “W” would’ve been a fine temporary logo, with a wordmark to match of course. I think you could pull off that feel with Futura, perhaps. Old Senators “W” I’m referring to: Something like that on the helmet instead of numbers looks really good in my head.
  5. As a kid at the time, I never thought anything of that Jazz black alternate. It was just “there” to me. Now I look back on it and don’t know what in the world they were thinking; they had all the other colors to choose from if they had to have an alt (sky blue, teal, even copper), and they went with black? I really wish they hadn’t done it. Also something I realized not that long ago - for a while there, especially the couple years when they wore the black alternate on the road A LOT - they were kind of the NBA’s equivalent of the Diamondbacks: purple-teal/turquoise-copper heavy at home, and black-purple-copper heavy on the road. The alt was never the official road set, but it was kind of the de facto one for a time.
  6. This was really all they had to do (plus maybe adding numbers to the shoulders, but still). It’s disappointing that they dove so deep into multiple tangents (fibonacci, streetwear, California vibes or whatever) that they completely missed this.
  7. Certainly not famous as in “everyone knows who they are”, but within the gymnastics scene they are very, very well known. They’ve been one of the top programs in the nation for years.
  8. Funny you mention Santaquin; that’s where I live! I’ve sort of zig-zagged around Utah a bit as well, mostly the Provo area but have also lived as far south as Blanding (where my Dad is from) and as far north as Logan. What part of the state do you live in? Having lived for a few years in Southern Utah, I did appreciate the redrock when it came out (didn’t like how it diluted the brand and still don’t, but I did appreciate how well it captured Southern Utah). And no, I don’t believe Utah ends after Santaquin The problem I’ve progressively had with the redrock theme, though, is that they’ve committed so hard to it that it’s leaving inspiration that could be tapped into the rest of the state off the table - as I’ve mentioned here before, the redrock it references is really only in the southern third of the state (the opposite part of the state from SLC). I was expecting more of the state’s natural beauty to be referenced year after year (as they seemed to indicate), but I’ve just been dissapointed that they’ve gone a different direction and doubled-down on one specific area of the state is all.
  9. I’m sure it’ll be popular in Utah again, but this just isn’t doing it for me. The redrock stuff is just over-played at this point.
  10. That’s about what I’m expecting as well. On another note, did you create those Laker uniforms in 2k as well? I really dig those!
  11. I think it would have been much better without the football in the background. But yeah, the Tostitos logos were far and away the best it ever got for the Fiesta Bowl, and it’s not that close. It was the perfect sponsor-bowl partnership, too.
