  1. "I want a lot of designers to spend their time and work on logos for me, but only want to pay for one". I despise "contests" for logos. Hire someone with a solid portfolio that you enjoy to do your logo. Coincidentally, a "rapper" I went to high school had his "big break" opening for MGK for a show one time. He did the exact same thing looking for a logo a while back. I successfully convinced him that he'd get a better result by paying me a flat fee than outsourcing for a contest. Finalized the logo with him, had to hound him for months for the money he owed me.
  2. Liking the arch in the horse logo as well as the colors. Stallions is a good name, but just an idea-could be the Clydesdales because of the Budweiser Clydesdales from St. Louis.
  3. Curious why you brought this up. Don't think he's retiring to pursue his engineering career!
  4. Saw these and came right here to see if there was a discussion going. Most are just oversized logos, a lot are oversized half-logos. Some wouldn't even work. The way they sized the vikings horn, it wouldn't fit on the helmet. At first I thought the photoshop was pretty decent, but there's a lot to nitpick if you look close. Can't believe Riddell let this get through the door and the NFL posted it.
  5. If this is the uniform (with the jersey from the other post), I will be EXTREMELY happy as a Bears fan. Very cool, retro yet unique design that gives the traditional but stale Bears jersey some life. I would almost argue that they should switch to something like this full time.
  6. are the W and F normally separated by the black outline?
  7. gotcha! I work in cad too but just have never used it for a graphic logo. Normally draw in a different program and import it into cad. maybe I'll try it your way some time!
  8. you designed the logo in autocad? curious because that seems strange to me as most people would go straight to photoshop for it all
  9. Damn that logo is godawful. AV has to have some sort of graphic design class where someone can smooth out the transition between the eagle and the penguin body? Not a bad idea, but horrible execution. Uniforms look nice though!
  10. I really enjoy these! Just a good, fun concept, and very well executed. My one criticism would be the copy and design not completely telling the full story. For example, I love the aesthetic of the Broncos jersey. And I love the idea of working skiing into it. But "geometric dot pattern" doesn't sell me on skiing at all. I'd want to try a similar pattern but with the mountain range topography for example. I especially love the Bears concept. I'm a Bears fan and could see this at every sportswear/t-shirt shop in Chicago.
  11. I agree. Not only is it high school, but it is well done. And not only well done, but "seen through". It's awesome to see a series that doesn't fall off the map after 2 concepts and updates as quick as you do and maintains quality. You're design eye is great in these, you make sure that there is a reason graphically or historically to every change. It's a fantastic series.
  12. Eagan! Small world! Went to a church right near the Rosemont-Eagan border so had lots of Rosemount friends
  13. Like everyone else has said, this is an excellent series! Very well executed and researched. The speed you are pumping these out is really impressive too for the quality! I know you already have some requests for which conference to do next, but I'd really like to see the South Suburban conference (where I grew up) if you get to it!
  14. It looks great! Love the style. It just made me think of the question and now I am very curious.
  15. Is Orlando the only team with advertising on their uniforms? if so, why?
