  1. Thanks for the feedback. Welcome to the forum! I'm glad you like my work so much. For Philly I tried using green a bit more sparingly because it sticks out, while still using enough that it's immediately noticeable. Affinity is amazing for designing logos. I've been using it for about 2 years and I find way easier to learn and master than illustrator. It is missing a few features that would be helpful like making brushes easier to use or a precise warping tool, and importing files is a bit finicky, but it's still a top-notch program. I'd highly recommend it if you're interested in designing, but it's a professional-grade program, so it may be too complex for beginner designers.
  2. Seems like a downgrade to me. I get that Rutgers sucked major eggs in the current threads but there wasn't anything bad or gimmicky there. This set looks just as plain and unremarkable as it did 15 years ago.
  3. Progress on Vancouver and KC has stalled, but I've still been working away. I've made another new uniform template and a more efficient logo slick, and I've been going back through all the teams and updating them as needed. So here are a few updates, some big, some small, all much better in my book. Houston Voyagers: Probably the final update. Swapped out the block font for a NASA inspired font, utilized white for a bit more pop, and updated the uniforms. Indiana Checkers: Changed the name from Indianapolis to Indiana, as I felt like it represented the state as a whole more than just Indianapolis. The grey is slightly lighter, the logo is no longer skewed upward, The I is a more standard block, the state outline has been cleaned up, and the flames are more defined. I really like the more subtle checker pattern, so I'm keeping the grey how it is. I find any lighter shade to be too garish for what I'm going for. Philadelphia Cannons: Redesigned the cannons, updated the badge, added a liberty bell secondary logo, and added some collar striping. Toronto Lakers: Updated the rope pattern and anchor, and made the subtle CN tower more accurate to the real building. Moved the rope striping from the shoulders to the collar, and the shoulders are now capped with maple leaves. Also, I'm watermarking my work from here on out. I found some random fictional league wiki that used some of my logos without credit so I'm going to be a bit more cautious from now on. That's all I have for now. Made in Affinity Designer. C&C appreciated.
  4. Everything in this thread is extremely well done. The badges, kits, everything looks amazing. You've done an amazing job in this thread.Bravo.
  5. It'll probably be the Jaguars moving to London, St. Louis, or maybe even San Diego. But I don't see anyone moving anytime soon. The Chiefs could end up changing eventually, but that's a conversation for another time.
  6. I'd agree here. The logos and colors aren't spectacular, but the fonts, uniforms, and web identity, and apparel are top-notch. Ben Barnes and his team have done an amazing job for them.
  7. As much as Mardi Gras colors fit New Orleans, I prefer the purple and old gold. It's a beautiful color scheme that is criminally underutilized.
  8. My favorite fix-up/concept has to be this one by MiLB's Ryan Foose. https://dribbble.com/shots/13875033-Queen-City-FC-Concept
  9. Children who enjoy drawing can get more excited about sports teams and logos if they're easy to draw. It's certainly not essential, but it's neat that the Kraken (gosh that feels weird) have a logo that can be embraced by everyone, even children. I spent years of my childhood trying to draw sports logos in notebooks, be it NFL, NBA, or my own childish teams, and I remember being really peeved at some teams solely because their logo was really hard to draw. Fun doodles like that opened up the world of sports logos to me and helped start my love for graphic design.
  10. No one's keeping score, and most people expected Kraken, regardless of whether or not they liked it. The only people who deserve credit here are the designers who nailed the logos, wordmark, colors, and uniforms.
  11. Dissapointed it's Kraken, but not gonna lie, they did a way better job on the logos and colors than I thought they would.
  12. Wow. That's a lot of work you've done here. All of this is amazing. Huge fan of the tournament style postseason and geographical divisions. I would love to argue about which teams deserve spots more, but I can tell teams were omitted and included based solely on location, which is a difficult business to sort out. Amazing work.
  13. I love the idea of differentiating Iowa from the Steelers, but this doesn't really do it for me. The stripes remind me more of a MAC/AAC team than a Big 10 contender. Looks amazing, just doesn't fit Iowa in my book.
  14. Washington looks amazing! The shift from native to DC imagery feels really smooth and the uniforms are easily an improvement over the current threads. The home could use more white and the away could use a little more gold but still looks great without it. Great job!
  15. Honestly not sure why I didn't do that. It works so much better. Thanks for the suggestion!
