I used to have a clunky old template that I'd cobbled together from 3 or 4 other templates, but I never liked it much so I never used it. At some point I'd found a drawing of a baseball player that I thought might make a possible template if I fiddled around with it, but I never had the time. So anyway, world wide pandemic, and I have time. Here it is...
I did this Cleveland Spiders' concept, and I'm trying out various color schemes. Obviously they could keep navy and red (in fact, my guess is they will), but rebranding is a good opportunity to reduce MLB's overabundance of navy/red teams. First, brown and scarlet. Completely unique color scheme in sports and an easy connection to the Cleveland Browns.
Figured with the news of the Cleveland Indians changing their name, it'd be fun to get in on the Cleveland Baseball Club rebrand trend. The name I've been liking the most for them from what I've heard so far is the Cleveland Spiders, so here is my take on it! I wanted it to still feel like a team with tradition so I kept to some classic fonts, with a bit of extra flair on them to try and really own the Spiders moniker. I've seen some excellent concepts on the boards already and wanted to not be too close to them. I thought the spiderwebs under the script would be a fun switch from the swooshing line typically underneath while serving a similar visual purpose. Putting the baseball seams inside the spider helped give it a little more character and connect it to the sport while also setting it apart a bit. In the main logo along with filling the center of the C with the spider, I flattened the edge in front of the spider's face so that the negative space inside the letter would take the shape of home plate.
