  1. I'll second this. When Nike truncated the sleeve stripes the jersey lost a little bit more than just the sleeves.
  2. It really is terrible. The spacing of black and yellow between themselves is all over the place, and just creates a visual riddle for the eye. Young designers - when you're making (especially 1 & 2 color) logos, consistency in spacing between elements is crucial. It doesn't need to be the same by any means - but it should have some uniformity. The five main elements (4 parts and oval) are all over the place. It looks like a messy room.
  3. As a NorthStars fan, this. The "history" belongs to the city and its fans, not to the owner who moved it. I wish every move was treated like the Ravens/Browns
  4. If you want a deep dive of great photos, check out Lets Play hockey's smugmug
  5. Nice. I grew up in east Burnsville- went to Apple Valley. Can't wait for the old Lake Confrence!
  6. These would be bad FANTASY logos. Only nepotism could get that place the work it does. Its consistently piss-poor. I'm in the industry, I hate :censored:ting on other people's work, but its frustrating when others can do so much better, for so much less money.
  7. This one got me until recently- The Denver Pioneers had this hawk logo on the shoulders of their hockey sweaters- and always thought it was it was a Davy Crockett coon skin cap.
  8. Oh this is the JETS. They are totally going to go heavy on adding Black or Anthracite. I'd be shocked if they didn't biff this up.
  9. My good buddies got a sneak peak of the Wild 3rd concepts in October- as him and another friend are split super good season tickets and they had a little focus group. Im going to transcript his texts. I haven't seen or heard anything so take it with a grain of salt: "Got to go see a couple of the Wilds concept jerseys for next year. Black. With the Minnesota Script from the green jersey" "The captain c was in the state of MN patch." "Black embroidered star on the middle of the arm, but same color as the black sleeve so not too prominent " "black gold and green. Black and a muted gold on the script." I'd. shocked if these actually got picked, they were just a little focus group, and they probably have 25 different options and only showed them a few of them.
  10. This is a great simile for the late 2010s. An over-corporatized facsimile of a bad, but earnest trend from the 90s, made unnecessarily more sinister because of "modern times." A long, wet fart would be a more original composition.
  11. I like it. It's weird and doesn't seem like the Twins, but I'll probably buy it as a fan.
  12. I quoted you twice because that's how double-bad that "I" is. Nice redux, @SFGiants58
  13. I wish they would have used the blue tomahawk on the Grays. Its too much red. Otherwise a near-flawless update to me.
  14. Hoping Wolves is their new Lake Blue with the current lettering and aurora green- A modern reimagining of the original Away Wolves jerseys.
  15. How many times have they rebranded in the past decade? That said, I like it. Really like the Sounds script.
  16. This is a very thoughtful, and well executed series. Really excited to see what you do with the remaining teams. Saints seem to be something you may go off wildly on. Just a hunch.
  17. And I shall lovingly refer to this as the Neon Tetra set for the fish. I loved these as a kid. And is a great color set for Miami.
  18. As a kid, I felt like the Cunningham-era Eagles did the same thing.
  19. This one hits really close in a few ways... My first thoughts: Wolves in the front? That shade of Purple? Prince Nelson was born in North Minneapolis. He loved Minneapolis. He got his career going across the street from the Target Center, at First Ave. He was a product of the city. Minneapolis has a proud basketball heritage with the lakers. • Put Minneapolis in front. And fix the damn Purple to a blueish hue. • Could have done a tribute to the Black/Silver/White adorned First ave, complete with silver stars. (But that'd have a bit of a Nets/Bklyn vibe.) Silver stars- its in the Palate. He played at Paisley Park. Couldn't have gotten a tone/tone texture in there somewhere? Seriously Timberwolves. Can you please do something right? I've been waiting since 1989.
  20. I am sorry, but i do not get the purists that are trying to put inject something that was never there into minor-league baseball. Take a look at Ebbets Field catalogs, they have always had irreverent names. Let the major leagues (and they often time now fail at this) be serious. Minor league teams often are gone as quickly as their namesakes are in popular lexicon. Most of them come and go. Rare are the Durham Bulls and Rochester Red Wings. I can appreciate the fondness of the normal naming structures, but its AA ball, and its a team that will probably move or rebrand within 15 years. But hey, whats this board without debate? Just be glad (outside of a few promotional nights) they generally LOOK somewhat traditional when they take the field. They could have a great name and awful uniforms.
  21. Hmm. I wonder who makes their jerseys.
  22. Oh you mean their best jersey? Great. I still can't believe how little Gold is on the Maroon jersey. I'd bet a wheat penny they wear the Gold Chrome lids, though.
  23. Hahaha. these purple jerseys are going to be used like 3 times. My call- City ones will probably be Los Angeles in cursive, but in Forum Blue/Gold Thus making all things right in the world. We know LeBron loves mixing eras, and I wouldn't doubt he has a say in things- although might be more for next year. Not sure the timeline on this stuff.
  24. i could see a cream jersey for the Bucks. Yellow would be...a departure. Like from any of their branding. Ever.
