You veteran CCSLC’ers out there may recognize my name as the infamous DomTheAthlete29 or perhaps you may remember my short tenure under the name italianstallion29? When I first joined this site in 2006, I was thirteen years old, and like most thirteen year-olds I was far too immature to act properly on the Internet. After annoying numerous members, harassing the fantasy community, and ultimately throwing one of the biggest temper tantrums this board has ever seen my account was rightfully banned. Right around this time however, I began going through puberty in which my passion for sports aesthetics was quickly replaced with the next best thing, girls. As the years went by these boards soon became a long forgotten memory; that was until I stumbled over one of my old uniform drawings while cleaning out some old drawers at my parents’ house. Since it’s been nearly 8 years or so since my banishment, I thought I should try this forum again in hopes of making new friends who share a common interest in sports. Looking back I find my actions quite hilarious and amusing, but I offer my sincerest apologizes to these boards to anyone I may have disrespected or offended. I really hope given these circumstances the board will welcome me back with a clean slate and allow me to make a new name for myself. I loved when the Cougars refreshed their look a few years ago; the colors now were consistent across all their athletic programs. The typography they came up with was also a vast improvement. Also helps that their primary logo may just be the best in all of college athletics. My main issue with the Cougars’ current branding package is that they added a second gray to the uniforms (primarily in football). So I really made it my goal to stick to a two-color palate with Crimson and Gray. Also I felt as if the typography had unnecessary serifs especially on the numerals, so I did away with those. Onto the uniforms… I really like what the football team did with their uniforms for the most part and felt like that identity would transfer over to a baseball uniform quite nicely. As for the chest scripts the cursive “Cougars” for the home is replaced with the new typography, “WSU” makes it on the road sets, and “Cougs” makes it on the alternate. Out goes the “Washington State” script they currently use on the road, as I feel it’s too bulky to use on the front of a baseball uniform. The caps remain untouched, feel as this keeps the team in line with the ‘honoring the past, live the present, create the future’ motto the school used during its rebrand. I also added a pinstriped ‘throwback’ to tie into the past as well, which features one of my favorite script logos on the front. The overall impression I aimed for with this is to appear more cohesive between the athletic programs. Let me know what you think.
