  1. Same! (I'm in Weatherford, btw) I haven't been around Lewisville in a minute but from what I recall the pitchfork is somewhat iconic. I'd try to keep that element in your redesigns. Saw this on Google search, may help in your decisions:
  2. Jordan, massive props on the creativity here! I always enjoy your work. You definitely killed this presentation.
  3. That frog is incredible. You're a brilliant designer, Sparky, so I hesitate to even say anything. Incredible series. I'm not a fan of the monogram gemstone. It looked like an FC to me and doesn't have a ton of panache. The frog, however, does. Super unique identity. Having been to Seattle many times (family), I feel like it's an identity they could get behind. I think I'd rework this concept around that frog. I still like Emeralds but their may be other options that tie directly to the tree frog. Nice work!
  4. Admittedly, the logo concept wasn't my favorite (hard to please Pittsburgh fan here) but man those wordmark concepts are great. The I-beam Pitt is brilliant. Bravo. Made this ol' senile Steelers fan happy.
  5. Ambitious project! Kudos. Nice start here. I think the tan and gray are too similar on the color wheel. If you don't want to darken the primary color, then it looks good where you have the logo stroked in black, I would bring that motif throughout the rest of the design for contrast. The dark red on the eye is cool and fierce-- I think you there's an opportunity to use that elsewhere to tie it all together. I would either make the wing feathers on the alternate black or also stroke them. They get lost imo. Looking forward to the rest of the project.
  6. Just dropping back in to say congrats on a fantastic series, but especially that Titans logo. Damn that's incredible. They need to buy that from you asap.
  7. I hate the Ratbirds, but that's a beautiful take on their logo. One of your best in this series. Nice work!
  8. Quite a cool concept. I'm neutral on which direction is better. They both have possibilities. I think the second one looks more like a wolf figure though. If you flip the stick and point it down, it becomes an immediate "L" though; SL-- Sea Lions. Just a thought.
  9. This was a fantastic project that I enjoyed following. You came up with quite a few unique designs and team brands that I've not seen before. It all felt coherent like it was a real international league. Definitely some inspiring stuff. Great work.
  10. Thank you. Yeah, I agree about the color palette. I think I got stuck on it and looking back it looks too much like the Titans and less of a league. I guess I was trying to avoid a classic red-white-blue combo. Thanks, Pulv. That makes a lot of sense. I was originally looking for a shield shape but it kinda went on its own direction. Thanks guys!
  11. I've always been too scared to get critique because everyone on here is amazing, but since I'm going to try to hit every event this year I thought it'd be helpful to get some real feedback this time. Please give it to me straight. I've been out of the professional game for a little too long and I feel like what little skill I had/have is slipping. I've always been more of a league-creator type guy, but I really want to get better at logos and designs. I already missed the 2nd event, so I'll post what I would have submitted after the voting is over. Until then, here's the first event. Event 1 Of course the event had to start off with a scratch logo, my super weak point. What could I have done better?
  12. I forgot when the deadline was so I wasn't able to submit mine, but man these are all awesome. G: 2 S: 9 B: 6
  13. Awesome design. Really screams Nashville in a modern way. I can dig your explanation of the SC mark, but it really distracted me. I think if you're wanting to implement the letterpress variance, you'd have to do it with the Nashville wordmark as well. Otherwise it looks way too out of place. Combine the two font styles for more of a vintage lettering on a modern logo. Overall design is top notch!
  14. I think I only commented once or twice but this was probably the most inspiring series I've seen since I've been lurking these boards. Your diligence in each design truly paid off. Hat's off, sir. Fantastic series. Enjoyed every bit of it.
  15. JCR, you're a freaking beast. Massive project, off to a hot start! Really digging that Dallas State concept. Nashville's logo is super nice too. Good work.
  16. This is a fantastic update, Zion! Excellent work. I really couldn't find any critiques to offer.
  17. Literally all of this is huge improvement, excellent adjustments and work! Everything looks much cleaner. I double-taked the league logo because it looks so much more like it belongs in this league. Love the way it's like the other major league logos and could be a player in both directions, nice!
  18. Some thoughts: Jazz: I like the logo but I'd prefer the yellow outline to be thinner. It dominates the logo a little too much for my taste. Braves: With the logo on the shorts, I kinda felt like this team could be super unique and not carry a logo on the shirt. Seemed redundant to me. You could instead put a northwestern stripe on the shirt like the socks. Totems: This is my favorite logo out of the bunch. Great look. This is weird but the V striping on the alt jersey turns the focal point to the crotch... Plus I think I'd do more of a scoop like the shapes in the logo than the sharp V shape. Pioneers: I was super confused for a minute because it says Seattle Pioneers above it. Lol. Good look though. Nationals: Great look.
  19. I actually really like the Vipers logo but the fangs don't work for me. They look like tusks imo, I think if you made them pointier and more fang-like the logo would work much better. Quite an interesting concept and series, keep up the good work!
  20. Rangers fan here. So I'm just gonna shoot from the hip. First thought was, I like the color scheme and could get used to it. The brick made me sad that Globe Life is being discarded, it is a beautiful brick park. But I also wished the brick red was more red. Us Rangers fans seem to like our bold red. I think you could split the difference and not make anyone think of those dadgum Astros. The slate blue is perfect. I dig the refreshed primary. With the addition of sand (which I like) the white seems weird though. Like too many colors on that logo. Same goes for the tertiary, I'd ditch the white outlines for sand and go for a simplified look on logo and patch. Just initial impression. Not sure I like the double outlines with this scheme, though I can tolerate it. I appreciate the deletion of the shadow on the T though. Texas is a prideful place, so I guess we're required to wear Texas on our jerseys at all times. But I like your addition of a Rangers wordmark at home, makes a lot of sense and looks good. I really like the striping. The first set of secondaries are nice. On point with what Rangers fans have come to expect for the home stand jersey rotation. (I'd buy your Friday home alt) For your second set of alternates, I really wished you would have scaled back for more of a retro vibe with the Nolan style Heritage uniform. I don't think the double outlines work here. I actually like the cream but I guess I was wishing for a powder blue. The script would look better with a simple red/brick outline. It's cool as-is but I don't think it really screams the heritage vibes you're going for. Overall, nice set. I dig it. Looking forward to your alternate take!
  21. Man there's a ton to like here. I really like the Loud City in C1. but C5 overall might be my favorite. That black/gray athlete set is gorgeous. I really love the clean look in C6. Lotta great stuff here. Not your typical lazy OKC takes either. Nice work.
  22. As a Rangers fan I dig this a lot. The northwestern stripe on the roundel gives the modern set a retro vibe which is pretty cool. I think my only quibble might be that the stroke on the T seems too thick for my taste, but man, I'm not even sure if it's just because I've seen the previous logo my tenure as a fan. Excellent work here.
  23. Lovely logo set. I dig it a lot. Only quibble is I wished the 'chrome' was a few shades lighter and you ditched the white. Personal preference I guess. That winged bird and the typography are on point. Nice work.
