  1. I actually had a seven-feathered version drafted: It's from an earlier round of revisions. I put it aside because I didn't think it shrank as well as the five-feathered version.
  2. You think that looks bad? I think it looks pretty well-crafted, honestly. A bit rough but I'm sure you'll find ways to refine it. Having never used Paint.net, does it work like Illustrator or Affinity Designer?
  3. There really isn't anything wrong with the current mark, except I always thought the actual bird's shape was a bit ambiguous. So I decided to toy with a new take on it that brought out the bird more: With the reduction to five feathers from six, the colors needed to be reduced, so I decided to call back to the old xylophone logo's RGB pattern - and have even included an updated xylophone mark in the set (the one-color version is included for the curious): From a practical perspective, I admit I'm not a huge fan of the peacock and would much rather use something like the xylophone mark (immediately understood by most of the audience) or the "Snake" logo (visual appeal), but I know the peacock has too much equity to shove off the main stage. And here is how my peacock would hold up to a glossy texture, if the client so wanted it for, say, a social media avatar (it's meant to refer to this rendering of the current mark): I like the geekiness of how the "living color" is now rendered in a way that more overtly alludes to the technology behind color pictures, but is it at the expense of the appeal of the peacock?
  4. What's the best place to show off one's work? Behance? Tumblr? A personal site? What are the best things to show off? I considered putting some of my concept work into my portfolio, but I worry about running into issues with trademarks and potentially misleading clients...

    I actually had a version of that that was adjusted but I put it aside after wondering what the point of it was: If I were to pursue this further, it would need adjustment.

    I adjusted the colors some and whipped up a one-color version as well:
  7. Sure. I'll send you SVGs in private.

    Playing around with the shape of the logo, which of these is better? Not sure if I plan on creating any supplementary marks right now...
  10. I considered bringing back the Wales/Campbell names but wanted something the league could plausibly use in this day and age.
  11. Something like this? (I left the letters black on purpose)
  12. The current NHL shield, which the league introduced for the 2005-06 season, does its job decently, but in my view it has its share of issues. It's a bit cluttered. The "LNH" version doesn't look very natural. There wasn't a lot wrong with the previous NHL shield either, and I used it as a base for my redesign of it. I did keep some things from the current shield, like its Stanley Cup silver color. Here's an "LNH" version: I also dabbled with some auxiliary symbols: I also took care to ensure my shields didn't fall apart in one color:
  13. Those trees look kind of awkwardly incorporated to me?
  14. Time Warner has never had the most stellar history itself. It has always been a messy pool of bureaucracy, and the only reason the company ever existed was so Time Inc. could protect itself from hostile takeover attempts.
  15. I'm waiting to see the entire identity before I formulate much of an opinion on it, but the outgoing logo shrank poorly and has needed to go for a while. There's a reason the official site just uses the head.
