Hey Guys! It's been awhile but I'm back with an inline hockey logo! I took the Hershey Bears logo as inspiration mainly because of how mean and intimidating the logo looked. I chose a "Deer" because where the team is located in Northeast Pennsylvania, there is an abundance of white-tailed deer. Of course, I had to use black and gold because...well, i just really like those colors for a hockey team! (Go Pens!) Hope you guys like this one! C&C Welcome!
St. Louis proved to be a difficult city to pin an NFL identity on. They are kinda that city in-between, they are close to so many other markets. For my entry I had narrowed it down to 4 names at first: Serpents, Demons, Storm, & Stags (I also toyed with Clydes... as in clydesdales ala Budweiser). Serpents ended up feeling clumsy (saying it makes me feel like I have a lisp), Demons too contradictory with Saint in the city name (but St. Louis is the city where the real story of the Exorcist took place), and Storm too insensitive (so many lives lost in the area due to tornadoes). So Stags was where I landed. With Missouri's passion for hunting it seemed like a good fit. I chose some "black forest" style iconography to reflect the German immigrant population that boomed in the 1800s. Colors were another nightmare, I wanted the pallet to be different from the cards and blues; but then different from KC teams, Chicago Teams, Tennesee teams, Texas teams, etc. At first I chose orange, black, and blue: But I struggled to keep it from being too Denver or too Cincy. So I tried blue, yellow and black: This didn't seem like the scheme of an NFL team. So after a few fruitless iterations I stumbled on Plum, Silver, and Yellow. This seemed unique, bold, and strong: Let me know what you think of the logos. I'll post the unis next.
After seeing that the Raptors are about to officially scrap their anthropomorphized raptor logo at the end of this season, as a Bucks fan, it got me thinking about the Bucks old logo with a sweater-wearing deer spinning the ball on his hoof. That logo inspired this idea to recreate a deer going in for a layup. I also made another less anthropomorphic version of a charging buck. In the layup logo, I wanted to show the athleticism and light-footedness of a deer. In the charging logo, I wanted to show the other side of a buck - that is its strength. These don't really match the typical composition you see from an NBA logo now days, but I've grown to dislike the Bucks current flat, line-drawing of a logo that they've been using for 20 years, and wanted to go in a completely different direction.
