  1. I think of the A were less rounded it would help with that
  2. I think auto racing fits the aesthetic more than football, but that’s just my take. Races have to take place on closed streets courses at night, like the Miami Grand Prix circuit.
  3. I’ll give that a shot. The reason I went with the gradient on the sides is because I was going for this aesthetic I tried doing pictures of Florida in the letters but it looked awful for a variety of reasons. The gradient on the front might work though and it would probably still have that feel.
  4. This is a second version of the Winter Classic logo where I replaced the sunset with a frozen orange. I think it’s missing something as well, maybe a hybrid of both designs will fill it out more
  5. This is a rough draft of the actual Winter Classic logo I am going to use. It’s not pixel perfect yet but I wanted to gauge response first. It’s inspired by classic post card art of the day. As always C+C is appreciated
  6. You know, what really sucks about this whole thread is that I’m inevitably going to be disappointed with whatever the NHL team comes out with because it’s not gonna have the same amount of passion put into it as you’ve put into everything here
  7. I gotta think the Yankees need more defined pinstripes but I dig the color combos
  8. I decided to make another logo for the Panthers based on both a concept that they made when they were originally designing their identity back in the 90s, and the original Screaming Eagles logo The paws obviously look weird, but that’s kinda how they looked in the original art. I will probably go back in and refine them later. In any case, I think the newer logos fit the jerseys better. I’m still having a hard time incorporating blue and gold into the jersey, so the stripes here are based on a different Eagles jersey that is making the rounds.
  9. Daytona is not a bad idea at all, having a motor sports themed Winter Classic would be awesome. My biggest issues with it are sight lines and the fact that you couldn’t fill it up even if there was 100K+ people wanting to see the game. The seats closest to the corner would be great, but the ones further out would be terrible. That means you could only sell the middle 1/3 of the grandstands, and I feel like that would make it seem really empty. Yeah you’re not wrong. I guess I just have a weird feeling about having an outdoor game in a stadium that’s only partly outdoors. HardRock Stadium seems like it would be a better option since they already completely transform that place for the Miami Open. I still think I want to keep it out of Miami though, the white Panthers jerseys are just too much of a draw for me. I’ll make a home/away version of each though just to see what it would look like.
  10. Well for one, I forgot that Marlins Park had a retractable roof. You could still do it, especially if they changed the game time to a night game, but I feel like having it around Orlando is a bigger opportunity to grow the game, plus the low averages 10° cooler in Orlando than Miami, which would make the ice surface easier to maintain. I also like the white away jersey for Miami better than the reverse colors but that’s just a personal preference
  11. Pucky on the shoulders is a good idea, he was super under utilized.
  12. I think 40,000 is right about perfect, Orlando being as central as it is allows the game to pull people from both Tampa and Miami plus Jacksonville and the greater Orlando area itself. I’ve been trying to add blue for a while now and it is really hard to make it work while keeping the feel of the vintage jersey. Adding gold seems like it worked though. then a splash of blue around the tops of the stripes is subtle enough but I don’t love it yeah I’ve been thinking about that too, but I’m worried it will pull it too far away from a “Classic” jersey look
  13. No I meant whoever is sitting at like the bottom right corner of the stands would be like a million miles from the ice surface and level to it
  14. Lol imagine the sight line of the guy on the ground in the corner
