  1. I'm with @Chromatic, I actually like the sleeves on the Seahawks. Reminds me of the Washington Capitals current set. As for the rest, I like what I see. Could be interesting to experiment a little more with the rest of the teams.
  2. I won't even bother looking back to see if this was something I replied to a while back because things have changed since this thread was created. But, here it goes: NFL: 1.) Baltimore Ravens - My dad purchased season tickets in 1996 and my family had them until January 2014. We were die-hard for a long time. Now we're lucky if we go to one game per year. But, we're still huge fans and in Richmond, VA, hardcore Ravens groups are hard to come by. 2.) New York Jets - These guys are more of a "I'll root for them when they make the playoffs" type of team for me. My dad grew up in New Jersey and his favorite team was the Jets before he switched to the Ravens in 1996. I think part of him still considers himself a soft fan to this day. Because of that, I give them my support, too. MLB: 1.) Baltimore Orioles - I know, I know, we suck. But, being a Ravens fan and a lover of Baltimore, it just comes natural to back the Birds. 2.) New York Mets - My mom grew up a Mets fan in Jersey and I adopted them as my NL club. NHL: 1.) Anaheim Ducks - My best friend in public school was a Mighty Ducks fan, and the films are what got me into hockey as a kid. The rest is sort of history. I've been rooting for them since 2002 and haven't looked back. 2.) Washington Capitals - The Capitals were the first NHL team I ever got into. Also living in Richmond, VA, they're considered a "home" club in the DMV. 3.) New Jersey Devils - I more or less root for them because my dad is a Devils fan being from Jersey. MLS: 1.) New York City FC - They are co-owned by Manchester City FC, my favorite Premier League squad. 2.) LAFC - I love the Art Deco style branding and that Linkin Park are big supporters of them. Guilty by association, I guess. NBA: 1.) Washington Bullets (Wizards) - Honestly, I don't follow basketball that much anymore. That started to occur in the '90s when the team changed their name. But, I will support them here and there. 2.) Orlando Magic - I visited Orlando last year and really liked the arena and the fans in the area. Plus, I loved Shaq back in the day. NCAA: 1.) Old Dominion University - I attended ODU for a year and the school is still a big part of me. I continue to support their football program. 2.) Virginia Commonwealth University - I graduated from VCU this year and support their sports programs, especially basketball. After their Final Four appearance, I was sold. Premier League Manchester City FC - I didn't get into the club until 2010. But, I watched a documentary about the fan base and loved their underdog spirit at the time. Now they've had a nice decade of success.
  3. According to this article, it seems BattleHawks pays homage to aviation defense in the area. Another interesting thing to note is that apparently if you flip the logo upside down, it spells out "STL"... To (not really) answer your question, I don't know what the hell it is either. But, I really liked the unveiling of New York and Houston's identities. They feel more unique than the others. I don't mind the Defenders, but the DC just feels weird to me. Should have just went with Washington.
  4. I like this idea a lot. But like others are saying, I think the added texture muddles the logo a bit. Maybe try taking out some of the texture within the arrowhead and return the KC back to a red and black color palette.
  5. Very well crafted logos here! Not a fan of the name for Baltimore or Buffalo, though. They're a little uninspired for me. But, I'm digging the concepts.
  6. Most of these cities are disappointing choices, with the exception of St. Louis. Extremely expected. But, I guess in Vince's case, you go where the money is.
  7. California Raspberry is the better of the two, in my opinion. More flavorful and refreshing. That's not to say Georgia Peach is bad. But, it's not quite as refreshing and crisp.
  8. The Breakers are beautifully done! I also really enjoy what you've done by bringing back the Bombers. Very nice series!
  9. As an athletics logo, I could get on board with this. But it still has a weird vibe going on. The more I look at it, the more it grows on me. It's just a really odd mesh of two ideas when you consider Virginia Tech already has a solid logo.
  10. I like it. I've been a fan of Haettenschweiler for a while now and I think it works well for the brand. Not totally sold on the mountainous setting but it could be worse.
  11. In the past year, I've been strategizing on a project involving a professional volleyball league. It would be called the World Volleyball Association and act as a nod to the International Volleyball Association of the 1970s. Many of the teams in this new league would have brands similar to the 1970s counterpart but take on a modern identity. This project is meant to help build my design portfolio after I graduate from VCU and any comments or suggestions are appreciated. I plan on making this project on an extended timeline but I wanted to at least share my idea for the league's official emblem. Backstory: Since this league would be a direct descendant of the original International Volleyball Association, I wanted to introduce a palette of 1970s pastel colors, a groovy yet futuristic typeface, and a stylistic reference of two opposing sides facing of inside of superimposed tennis court. The orange roundel encompassing the other elements of this design are meant to act as a globe. Seeing as the league would be "represented" on a global level with co-ed rosters, it would act as a message of unity.
  12. You're not the only one. I think the red makes the crest and uniform design really pop. But for the sake of continuity, I think the original home and away designs work well enough to be primary sweaters. Call me crazy but for a team called Golden Knights, gold just doesn't look right in most concepts I've seen. Maybe that's just me but unless there is a way to really pull it off, I don't think they should ever wear it as a primary color.
  13. This series is off to a great start! These colors would look sleek on the ice and under the lights. My favorite is Calgary and Anaheim so far.
  14. I just gotta say that this idea is awesome! My personal favorite is your Hurricanes set. Using the hurricane flag pattern looks great! I'm also really digging the "White Lightning" idea for Tampa. Colorado's alternate is a fresh, minimalistic and modern take on their current uniform. I can't wait to see the rest!
  15. If he's blown a 3-1 series lead before, I'm hoping he'll do it again. No offense Pens fans. I just want to see the Caps break this funk for once.
