  1. Looking forward to all your designs and backstories. +1 for Hawaii having a pro sports team (one day) HPL Logo: is there a meaning behind overall shape and the 5 dots? kind looks like a guitar pick to me, but I dig it. the FC TAUA'I and YAMATO FC logo are quite nice, as is the cherry blossom influence on the laters uniforms. My favorite so far of them all is the 80s vibe North Shore SC logo and their Sunrise/Sunset kit. Mahalo for your creative work and sharing
  2. According to "the unnamed Soccer podcast" as well as "the Darren Smith Show" episode with Landon Donovan United is out as a team name option. they are apparently looking at 3 names (trademarks and legal stuff) there will be an update or announcement at the end of October/early November. a lot would need to fall into place for Donovan to become head coach. season ticket deposits can be made
  3. USL San Diego more news @ https://www.soccernation.com/the-latest-on-usl-san-diego/
  4. IMO that would only be an issue if they'd choose to go with white as primary, and similar navy/gold as secondary/tertiary colors. Examples: similar or same colors, very different look.
  5. St. Pauli from Germany and the Vancouver Whitecaps (alternate kit) in the early 10s are the only teams I remember having brown jerseys/uniforms. Brown isn't the easiest color to pair with. Maybe a yellow/orange/red and white. Wouldn't be thrilled by those colors, but they aren't the worst either. Personally would prefer a blue (whether it's navy or sky blue), a "sun" color (yellow, orange, gold) and white.
  6. While they are focusing on local feedback, they are open to outside feedback as well. Sent them a link to an San Diego name/colors/logo thread on the (in)famous BigSoccer message boards. Would love to see creative input from these boards to flow into the teams identity, like it was the case with USL's Sacramento Republic!
  7. USL SAN DIEGO ANNOUNCES COMMUNITY TEAM IDENTITY PROCESS USL San Diego has officially launched a community outreach program to engage San Diegans in the process of building an identity for the team, including its values, the team’s name, the kit colors, the team crest worn over players’ hearts and all those unique qualities that represent what the team stands for. To date, the club has held four listening sessions with people throughout the San Diego region to explore why they love San Diego, what makes them proud to call San Diego home and what they want to see in their professional sports teams. They want to obtain authentic, local feedback on everything from the club’s name and crest to the start date and core values The team plans to launch an official community survey early next month. You can provide them with your thoughts/feedback/ideas/designs by these channels: info@uslsandiego.com https://twitter.com/uslsandiego https://www.instagram.com/uslsandiego/ https://www.facebook.com/uslsandiego/
  8. https://twitter.com/SdLandon/status/1151633381375062016 @SdLandon Most popular names include Athletic/Atletico, AFC San Diego, Mission San Diego. Most popular colors include SD flag colors, brown and yellow, yellow and blue. Thoughts? 4:22 PM - 17 Jul 2019
  9. They are actively asking you for input to the teams colors and name, you might as well give them logo/uniform ideas along with it This Board does have a lot of very talented and creative minds. https://twitter.com/SdLandon/status/1151282643780034560?ref_src=twsrc^tfw <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Ok San Diego, what are we thinking for a name and colors for our <a href="https://twitter.com/USLSanDiego?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@USLSanDiego</a> team?</p>&mdash; LandonDonovanSD (@SdLandon) <a href="https://twitter.com/SdLandon/status/1151282643780034560?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">July 17, 2019</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
  10. From what I can gather, those who signed up for the newsletter regarding season tickets were contacted by the team about names, colors and such. Also those who attended Women World Cup or Men's Gold Cup watch parties in San Diego where Warren Smith and Landon Donovan were in attendance also gave proposals. Looks like it's all done locally and not over the internet/social media, at least so far.
  11. from their website: DOES THE TEAM HAVE A NAME? No, and in fact, the real question is “what do you want the Club’s name to be?” This is a club that will be built from the grassroots up; ultimately it will be the San Diego community that will decide not only the Club’s name but what they want this Club to represent. We all know San Diego is a unique city, both in its residents and as a place. It can mean something special to each of us, but there are also parallel stories and shared experiences that can be communal. Starting in Summer 2019, the Club will engage and listen to the community through a series of events, workshops and online surveys for those values and characteristics that make San Diego the unique place it is. We’ll engage some talented local designers to consider all these elements, stories and suggestions and produce something which truly resonates and represents our region. And because a club’s crest is a symbol worn over our hearts, it will be a symbol for San Diego that all of us will be proud to wear.
  12. Interesting to learn about all the different identities and colors the team has had! I got to know the Vancouver Canucks during their flying skate days with their black, red and yellow colors. I like the Orca as a base logo best though. Would love to see it combined one day
  13. Seems the stars have aligned after all and San Diego will get a professional outdoor soccer team in USL Championship in either 2020 or 2021 According to their launch media blitz in San Diego last week they will announce more on the team identity process within a couple of days. Please post all name, logo, colors, kits news & rumors you come across in this thread and link any concepts. I'll do my best to keep it updated as well. Personally I'd love to see they team go with orange, navy and sky blue color theme (think NYCFC, Sporting KC, Sydney FC) One of my past favorite names, San Diego Seals, sadly is already in use for Lacrosse team and i believe also a youth soccer organisation of some kind. Always thought that be a good fit, as it related to the ocean, the popular animals, as well as the other seals from the US Navy. As it was the case in the past, I'm sure we'll see plenty of ship anchors and military influenced identity proposals. Hope there are others though too
  14. USL San Diego I'm positive as they seem to have knowledgeable, passionate people behind it for the right reasons with Warren Smith (for his business/team launch experience) as well as Landon Donovan (who adopted San Diego as his home and clearly loves soccer). Cool, that you can give such a glowing recommendation of Warren Smith! During one of the local SD media interviews he was talked up to be THE real star behind the name (Landon) and he simply responded in a very humble way, despite seemingly deserving these plaudits. He came across very sympathetic. Totally agree with you on that. --- To me at least, the whole thing came of the blue with no rumors or teases. What a pleasant surprise for a change! I'm hopeful it doesn't turn into another SD politics/business interest slug fest as the 3 year (Torero) stadium agreement, including expansion up from around 6 to 8 thousand is already agreed with USD. Fingers crossed they'll get a good name, logo, colors and kits. I'd prefer them to launch when they are ready, whether that means 2020 or 2021.
  15. that night sky kit is gorgeous! and fits well with their logo as well.
  16. this is one heck of an epic MLS Logo concept thread! BRAVISSIMO Fantastic work, each and everyone of them! I'd buy merch for those teams or get inked with those. I especially like the NYCFC shape and simplification, the Nashville Guitar pick shape. Looking forward with what you come up with for the Caps.
  17. Awesome to see more of your soccer works, some of which I came across on different message boards. love the Netherlands iconic orange, with the watermarked lion and the flag colors at the sleeves. Also like the USMNT Away aside from the USA on the white stripes.
  18. I see what you did there very insightful thread. thanks for sharing. On another note, looking forward to the "Night Navy Kit" aka Galaxy secondary in a few days, hope they have some gold too, instead of the 'blue on blue" they've had recently.
