  1. Haha that is correct. Their logo has not been released in vector form yet so I had to carefully retrace it. And no, I intentionally left Cleveland towards the end, knowing they may change their logo. I bumped it up to this week to be closer to the announcement they just made. Now I only face a dilemma with the Washington Football Team as they will likely not announce the new logo until next year. So the only logos I have left are Buffalo, Minnesota, New Orleans, Denver, Cincinnati, and Washington. I'll have a long gap of time between the release of Cincinnati and Washington as I have been completing one a week (since February)
  2. I also just realized this week that the Atlanta Thrashers are no longer a team . I think it still looks fine with the Thrashers logo incorporated. Thoughts/
  3. So I am just on the fence about it as everyone else. I believe the red. white and blue has been overdone so many times and is more closely related to the US flag so whenever a team has a unique color to them, I try to use that. With that said, I went with the purple since its a huge part of the Raptor's identity history and they brought it back for this season with their special edition jerseys. A solution would definitely be to just make it blue and white, perhaps also keeping the black. Afterall, blue is the color of 2/3 of the logos used so it should take priority. Once I am done with all of the logos, I will be going back to make revisions. I will also try the current Toronto Maple Leafs logo, but as I mentioned in an earlier comment, I don't necessarily pick the current logo, only the one that helps make the overall design seem more sound, this current leaf happened to fit perfectly in that spot but I will try it out anyway.
  4. Fair enough, I do appreciate feedback especially from someone in the region - I hadn't received any feedback on my decisions to split all the southern California teams down the middle with 1 of each sport prior to me creating it, I did think my reasoning had some merit (Clips and Chargers have origins in San Diego, way south of LA and of course Anaheim is also south of LA, although the Angels used to play in LA and still have LA in their name - so perhaps I can rename it to SoCal? do you think that would be a little more appropriate (this way they stay together but aren't associated with LA. I get it, I'm from Illinois, and a lot of southern Illinoisans hate getting lumped in with Chicagoans). I may eventually make an LA-Anaheim one with ALL teams together but that would be a monumental task haha. otherwise, the other option would be a 6 team logo for LA and a 2 team logo for Anaheim - not very balanced but then again they do get treated as separate cities. Anaheim folks must also have a favorite California football and basketball team I would imagine? Definitely a tricky one
  5. With my Atlanta design dropping this week - I am about the halfway point in my journey. I wanted to clarify my reason for selecting these cities and provide insight on what is to come. I chose all cities that had at least 2 of the big 4 teams (NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB). Any cities that had only 2 big 4 teams also received an MLS mashup to help compensate for the lack of logos. Cities/States completed so far: Chicago Pittsburgh Philadelphia Tampa Bay Indianapolis Seattle Carolinas Boston Wisconsin Phoenix Tennessee Bay Area (San Francisco and Oakland) Detroit Miami Atlanta Kansas City Remaining cities: Los Angeles #1 Baltimore New York City #1 Houston Toronto Los Angeles #2 Las Vegas New York City #2 Minneapolis/Minnesota Dallas New Orleans Cleveland Denver St. Louis Cincinnati Buffalo Washington I left Washington for last, hoping they would create the new name for the football team but that may not happen for another year as they have already announced they will continue to use the Washington Football Team name for this upcoming 2021 season. Cities with only 1 Big 4 team: Calgary (Flames) Columbus (Blue Jackets) Edmonton (Oilers) Jacksonville (Jaguars) Montreal (Canadiens) New Jersey (Devils) Oklahoma City (Thunder) Orlando (Magic) Ottowa (Senators) Portland (Trailblazers) Sacramento (Kings) San Antonio (Spurs) Utah (Jazz) Vancouver (Canucks) Winnipeg (Jets) Major League Soccer cities that also have a big 4 team: Columbus (Crew) Montreal (Impact) Orlando (FC) Portland (Timbers) Utah (Real Salt Lake) Vancouver (Whitecaps) Coincidentally it is 3 NHL and 3 NBA cities. I may or may not make a mashup for these 6 cities at the very end.
  6. Thanks a lot! I scoured everywhere through the internet and could not get a vector file for that design so I carefully retraced it and spaced out the symbols evenly and it turned out amazing! I've always been a fan of that old Grizzlies logo. I have two versions of the LA logo scheduled (I may attempt to also put them all together but I doubt it would look very cohesive) - I am not sure if this is the correct way to split the teams. I have thought about Clippers, Chargers, Angels and Ducks (Clips/Chargers have origins in San Diego and Angels/Ducks are from Anaheim). Then you got Lakers, Rams, Dodgers and Kings which don't really have any connections as far as I know except Magic Johnson is part owner of the Dodgers and the Lakers and Rams both have origins in the Midwest. Kings play in the Staples center along with the Lakers and although the Clippers do as well, they will be getting their own stadium soon. As far as the old Clippers cursive, I agree with you, that may have been the best branding the team has had in its history. After the Sterling situation, they scrambled to come up with a new identity and it has never really felt right. Well I may or may not end up using the wordmark as that's not something I typically add to the logos, I try to focus more on the icon/emblem but I can maybe throw it in there as an alt! Stay tuned.
  7. It was brought to my attention that there was another Tennessee logo mashup almost identical to mine floating around the internet. There was no watermark and could not find a date. Even though all of these concepts are created without outside inspiration, there will inevitably be some overlap because there's only so many ways these can be pieced together. I decided to at least change the colors and as a bonus, I included an alt version with the Vancouver grizzlies roundel. I wasn't sure if that tribal-like design was specific to the Vancouver region so I decided to not make it the main logo. Does anyone have any info on the Vancouver Grizzlies logo origin/history? Memphis Grizzlies x Tennessee Titans x Nashville Predators
  8. I gave those a try but I didn't like how it looked at all, the 4 and 9 were way too dominant in the design and it just doesn't look right. the text roundel is inconsistent with the other designers I have, it also makes the rest of the logo seem way small so It did not work either! Thanks for your suggestions though. I think I'll close the book on this and keep the single elephant version for the combo. I'll likely revisit all of these logos later on for color variations.
