  1. As a NYer, my first thought when I see Pitt is the college. I've got my own quirks as a Bills fan (i.e. the ONLY team actually located in NY), so maybe some die-hard Steelers fans would jump on board with PGH.
  2. While the I-beam look is definitely a great nod to Pittsburgh, please allow me to mention that the technically correct abbreviation of Pittsburgh is PGH, for whatever reason.
  3. First of all, I think that creating a logo like this in MS Paint deserves some kind of award. Much respect. Second, it's too creative for the NFL, though I wish they'd go back to unique SB logos and this is a good start to do so.
  4. Thank you, jmoe. I've adjusted the eyebrow and tried to reincorporate the teeth. I think I need to step away from it for a minute.
  5. Hey all. As one who is a self-proclaimed "logo nerd," I could list off some random facts behind many logos, but when it comes to making my own sports logo, it's tough. With that said, I wanted to make an original jackalope logo, and this is what I've got. I switched the buckteeth in the sketch to the bottom part of the mouth for the final product because I felt as though the teeth were too beaver-like. I also can't help but feel as if it also looks too much like a dog rather than a rabbit with antlers. Maybe I just need some fresh eyes and fresh input on it. PS, I think I channeled my childhood love of the Sabres' goathead logo into the creation of this one...

    NHL 2017-18

    I work at the Sabres Store at KeyBank Center and have gotten familiar with them. First of all, as joekono mentioned, the Fanatics logo is sublimated onto a piece of fabric and either pressed on, or possibly stitched around the edges. Similar to the shoulder patches on the Reebok Edge replicas. The material is also thinner than the Reebok replicas, it seems. But with the Authentics only being approximately $60 more, I'd just save that extra money and go authentic if you're concerned about quality.
  7. In terms of a Lions-esque update, I'm in favor. Keep the overall shape the same, but add definition inside of it. Honestly, as a lifelong Bills fan, until a few years ago I had no idea that the white area to the right of the red streak was a horn and eye. As Cosmic mentioned before me, the front legs seem like he's been hitting leg day pretty hard (maybe with some PED help as well). Almost comes off as lobster claw-like to me. I also don't feel good about the lightning bolt shape on the backside of it going against the motion of the bison. Bisons have a furry front side that ends past their front legs. Maybe if you could use that as a definition area instead of the back it would add something special to it. Overall, I like the direction. A simple, yet modern update to (what I consider to be) a classic logo. Keep working on it, and Go Bills!
  8. Every designer had to start somewhere, right? Keep at it, Monty. Keep learning. Keep improving.
  9. Please tell me this post isn't serious.
  10. I didn't want to start the W on the right side of the G because then it was too far apart and didn't feel cohesive enough for me. So I messed around with some arrangements and have come up with this. Also better represents my I placement as well.
  11. Yeah, that middle "connector" part doesn't feel perfect. Now I see the E (damn, you). When you say "hook line", do you mean the inside of the G down into the W? Maybe I could kind of cut that square out so the inset line of the G would meet the ascender of the left side of the W at the bottom right corner.
  12. Hey all, dropping in to get some input and some fresh eyes on my latest concept for a personal monogram to stamp my work with. To start, my initials are G and W. Not two of the greatest letters to mold together in a readable, pleasurable manner. I've had a few variations but haven't been too satisfied. The other night I decided to give it another shot and began sketching some combinations. Today, I pulled it into Illustrator and cleaned it up. This all leads me here to present it to you all, and for comments and criticism. Im leaning most towards the two on the left. With the variant option I tried to better link my G and W with what also resembles my middle initial, I. However, I feel like it clutters it up and it doesn't breathe as easily.

    Buffalo Bills logo

    Not sure what you mean here. The only thing missing from the current logo with this one are the legs. So I have no idea what you mean by the current logo conveys "Bills." But thank you all for the comments thus far. It's a stripe to suggest forward motion. Not a "bill," whatever that means.

    Buffalo Bills logo

    I sketched up this idea months ago and never worked on it. I had some time tonight, so I present to you my custom logo. The basis for this concept was to try and modernize our beloved charging bison logo while keeping the same elements. Also, it resembles the shape of a B, for obvious reasons. It may also resemble the infamous Sabres slug as well, but I hope it's not as off-putting. So here it is. Don't hold back with the criticism and comments, I can handle it. Go Bills.
  16. EA can add team-specific game presentations and mascots, but can't manage to use the correct number style.
  17. Marty Biron's rookie number was 00
  18. Personally, all I would do is remove Milwaukee from the original. But that's just me.
  19. So why not make an "Entertainment" section, and also include fictional sports teams as well? Blue Mountain State, Any Given Sunday, The Longest Yard, just to name a few.
  20. The first example I could think of was this shirt that the Sabres wore during the 2011 playoffs. I work at the Sabres Store and was asked by countless customers if we were selling them, so the demand was certainly present. The shirt has (I would assume) sixteen "16"s along the sleeves, representing the number of wins needed to win the Cup. Also, on the chest there is an outline of the Cup with the Sabres logo inside. I certainly would've picked one up, had they been available to the public.
