  1. If you are going to use Australian animals, try to have it link with the states, such as the swan for Perth, whereas Queensland could be the Brolga, the actual state bird. Just try to avoid really pushing Australian items into it, however, Magpies, Sharks, Emus and Kangaroos im fine with as they are essentially the air, naval and ground animals of Australia, but avoid using animals that may not link with the team well, as Australia has a state and city link like what Alabama and New York are like, very independent. Another example could be the Fremantle team in WA, you could use the Quokka, a native of the Fremantle area (even if they arent necessarily apart of Fremantle itself). The cassowary design was solid and nice, just doesnt fit the locale. I could also suggest aligning teams with other sporting team in the area, so by changing Cairns to something like the diamondbacks (although i dont think diamondbacks live in Australia) could work, following a theme if you get where im coming from. Your work is stunning no doubt about it, but trying to push in unnecessary items just seems pointless. With Melbourne Victory, yes, im glad its not Arsenal like the shield, but the V was and is the most important part of the shield and jersey as a whole. Look at AC Milan, who use the stripes as apart of their logo. That V is integral to the team and identity. If that shield was for an and upcoming team in a new league that hadnt revealed their kits yet, 100 hundred would like it, but the V is far too much apart of the identitt of Melbourne not to be subtly hidden in the M, which is why I think by extending the V all the way to the edge could be better (although a draft may need to seen first before i judge).
  2. Never should have removed the Big V from the Victory logo, worst thing couldve done, especially since its now incorporated into the M, never should have done that, otherwise, prety good concept, but forcing way too many Australian animals and "things" into the series, ruin it for all Aussies. The Perth one was nice, but the cassowary is too far, even if the concept is a killer. The only downer is the Victory one, but if you put the logo into a full circle and have the V extend to the edge, its a better look and still respects Victorian history
  3. First of all, these concepts are just stunning and great, nothing I can complain about. But, I will say this, dont try to Americanize every brand with a name change. This concept of Americanising thing is wonderful, but you must remember that MLS has a stigma of being and pardon my language, a s*** league that only attracts old talent. Thats not my opinion by the way. If you are going to Americanize teams, do it in logos, colours and kits, not necessarily names. Your NYCFC logo is a perfect example of Americanization done properly i feel. It represents New York City and still has a European sounding name. Some brands i will admit need a name change (NYRB, Real Salt Lake, im looking at you) whereas other i feel do not, such as Houston, in which many fans may feel alienated as Houston first two seasons in the MLS were championship seasons, so some may not want to lose a name related to that era. If you were going to Americanize names, I would try to incorporate something related to the city or state, such as Nashville and the Six Strings, very smart and also unique, yet not too out of place within a soccer community. Other than that knock, this series is fantastic and your designs are spectacular, keep up the good work
