  1. Thought i'd start this thread up to get some feedback on my entries through out the competition. So check back and let me here your C&C. Still can't attach my own images, but here is my Event 1 entry via URL link: I thought about using a unique/different color scheme, but bailed in the last hour before I sent the entry:
  2. I may as well join the fracas. I'm plumb ashamed of my Event 1 entry...so let's just skip that and head to my Event 2 Submission for the Hampton Roads Cruisers!
  3. As of Logolympiads of yore, I'm setting up a thread about my entries after the conclusion of an event. It'll be part reflection/explanation about the entry and part seeking constructive criticism from the board, or so I anticipate. With that introduction out of the way, I suppose the most logical place to begin would be Event 1, as it's the only event which has concluded. EVENT 1: LEAGUE LOGO I wasn't especially happy with my entry for this event, and the results showed it as I received zero votes. Looking at it now, the acronym one seems bare, while its only interesting element (the PFF fit into the laces) had to go away because of the rules of the contest, making the two logos appear disjointed. The PFF in the laces would have improved the full logo, but I don't think it would have made much of a difference competitively. That's what I think; now let me know what YOU think.
  4. This is my first logolympiad here, since last year, I wasn't to impressed with my design skills last year. My first entry for this year was the league logo, for the Professional Football Federation. Even though my logo-making skills aren't on par with most of you guys here, I still tried to make a visually appealing logo for this league. The shape is a shield-star combination, symbolizing the talent of the league. The bottom consists of triangular designs completing the shape of the star, with a football at the bottom. I didn't expect much with this entry, and that held up. To those of you who voted, what were your deciding factors for your decision with this? I'm trying to take any advice to improve my skills.
  5. Thought i'd start this thread up to get some feedback on my entries through out the competition. So check back and let me here your C&C. I can't currently attach images, for some reason, so I'll try again later....
  6. Here is a GIF of the progression of my Gold Medal winning Logolypiad entry.
  7. I'm looking to showcase my Logolympiad entries and hopefully garner some constructive criticism to improve both my designs and my work. So, I'll submit here my entry after the voting for each event closes and maybe provide some context for the design if needed. So here's event 1: Anniversary Patch Being from Minnesota, I knew exactly what anniversary I wanted to celebrate. I love using states for logos, so I modified the logo from a previous concept and fashioned a pennant in the northern part of the state. The shape of the state allowed me to fit it in (I thought) pretty easily, and winning a pennant is obviously a prominent symbol of a successful season. From there, I took the Twins logo and the script from the 1991 World Series logo and placed them in the banner. Looking back, I probably didn't need the Twins logo there, as it probably just cluttered up the anniversary patch. Oh well, live and learn. On the bottom half of the state, I placed the two years required for the anniversary patch. I probably should have kept them on the same line because this makes it look like the Twins won the World Series in 1991 and 2016 (lol no), but it looked really empty down there otherwise. Even with these identified flaws, I still received enough votes to finish 10th in the event (thanks for everyone who voted for me). If anyone wants to toss me some C&C, I would greatly appreciate it.
  8. Well, I figured I'd get around to getting some C&C on my Logolympiad entries. This also gives me a chance to share my thought process in developing my concepts. First up, entry #1. I wanted to do the alternate logo of a team that desperately needs help with their current brand. And who needs more help than the Clippers, one of the biggest steps backwards I've ever seen. It seems they so often squander their distinctive name and all its nautical potential. For the purposes of the contest, it made sense to keep some element of the current brand, so I kept the basketball, reconceiving the channels as the spokes of a helm. I also incorporated the nautical flag for the initial C (blue-white-red-white-blue). I know I wasn't thinking right about the keylines, thinking in terms of line rather than shape. This I can easily remedy in cleanup. And I wanted to use a new script font that would recall their most recent brand, but I ended up using it for my soccer-uniform submission as well, and I think it works better on that one, so I'll change up the script. What do you think is working/not working? Thanks.
  9. I thought I would do OK in the Anniversary Patch event of the Logolympiad. Then I saw Dave Steib. Anyway, I went through several different options for my submission before finally settling on Babe Ruth's 1st homerun. In retrospect, none of these would have placed well, but I wanted to show them off and get some feedback. Thanks in advance. My entry: 100th Anniversary of Babe Ruth’s 1st Homerun (thanks to the couple of you who voted for it!) South Africa Rugby Golden Penalty Flag Turns 50 "The Tramp" Turns 100 And, Jack Johnson: I thought this was maybe my best, but then I researched more and my original date source was incorrect--he lost the crown in 1915--so I scrapped this as my entry)
  10. Thought I'd post my Logolympiad entries in one thread to receive some C&C. I'll start with the alternate logo from event 1. Here were the requirements: I thought making a cowboy boot for the Spurs seemed like a great idea and would fit in with the rest of the identity. The goal was to have a logo rendered well enough that the existing spur didn't feel tacked on. If I had more time, I'd probably exaggerate some of the features and make some of the lines thicker, especially the leg details and the black outlines in general. Let me know what you think!
  11. Thought I would toss up my Logolympiad submissions thus far and receive some feedback on them. I haven't been able to enter as many events this year as I would like, but hopefully I can submit an entry or two for these final few events (with more success than my first two). EVENT 1: Alternate Logo For the first event, designers were tasked with designing an alternate logo which could replace the primary in some applications. I opted to design a logo for the Celtics because I felt they had a lot of original Celtic imagery that could be drawn from. My design is based upon the claddagh, a prominent symbol of Irish heritage and culture, with a basketball replacing the heart. The crown I chose was admittedly kind of plain, but it is not without its history for this franchise. I based the crown off of the one appearing in the logo Boston used during the 50s and 60s. For my effort in this logo, I received two bronze medal votes. EVENT 3: Wordmark The next event I entered, the task was to create a wordmark for a potential Los Angeles NFL team, utilizing one of three color palettes. The name I selected is a callback to a team from the All-America Football Conference that called Los Angeles home during the late 1940s. The imagery comes from the nearby La Brea Tar Pits, which are the final resting place for many prehistoric species including the mastodon (Dons being short for Mastodons). This wordmark was in all likelihood far too ambitious both for this event and for my designing abilities. Despite this, I still received a nice little triple crown of one gold, one silver, and one bronze vote for my submission. Nevertheless, I'd love to see how I can improve this with some feedback and continued work.
  12. Now that the first event of Logolympiad in which I competed has come to a close, I figured I'd post my design and explanation here, as well as any other designs that I may enter in later rounds. First up, my design for F.C. Nuuksio. I was lucky enough to win gold for this, but I'd still love to hear C+C, especially from those of you who did not include the design in the top 3. COLOR SCHEME F.C. Nuuksio's color scheme is based upon Espoo's coat of arms, as well as the use of double blue in Finnish sports. The light blue and yellow are taken directly from the coat of arms itself. However, I found that a third, darker color would be necessary. This resulted in choosing black, but it felt a bit too harsh. By combining black and the light blue color, I created a navy color that I felt added sufficient contrast without being to harsh compared to the light blue and yellow. I personally love double blue color schemes, and I felt that the yellow combined gave it a strong St. Louis Blues-esque look. CREST The design of the crest was initially based upon the coat of arms of Espoo. I felt the crown and horseshoe could act as a strong base for a crest. The crown at the top is based on the crown, but in a manner that I found to be a bit cleaner and stronger as a logo. The crest itself is actually based on the shape of the horseshoe, (which was initially meant to be the main feature). Next, I toyed around a bit with maybe including a diagonal Finnish flag, which resulted in the diagonal "sash" on the shield. The yellow was initially the top stripe on the sash, but I felt that yellow and light blue touching caused the colors to blend, so a smaller blue line was added above the yellow to create a barrier. The Nuuksio district is home Nuuksio national park, and which became the inspiration for the inclusion of trees. Finally, I placed the horseshoe from the coat of arms in the top corner. However, I wasn't a fan, so I changed it to the moon, which allowed the dark blue trees on the light blue sky to create a nice twilight effect. Finally, I placed F.C. Nuuksio in white upon the sash. I wasn't really sure how to include Espoo on the crest, which was required, so I placed in small underneath F.C. Nuuksio in light blue, to give it minimal presence. (Normally, I'd simply include Nuuksio, but I had to make do). UNIFORM I'm a huge fan of the way the St. Louis Blues (in particular) balance their double blue color scheme, so I wanted to make a design that was similar. The base shirt color is the lighter blue and features the sash from the shield as a horizontal stripe. I initially wanted to make the sash diagonal, but I found that I could include the design without having the shirt sponsor break the stripe if it were horizontal. The collar also matches the Navy-Yellow-Navy pattern. The socks simply mimicked the design of the shirt. Finally, I chose simple Navy shorts with a yellow stripe, which I felt tied in well with the shirt. The away kit followed the theme with a white shirt that featured the striping pattern on the sleeves. The same shorts were used, and the sock design was altered to be mostly white, which better matched the overall kit design. Two embellishments were utilized on both shirts. The first is features at the bottom, where two small trees are formed. These trees were inspired by the small embellishments that the US Centennial jerseys had a few years ago, featuring a small triangle with stars and stripes. On the neck of the shirt is the crown and horseshoe from the coat of arms. -------------------------- So, there you have it. Once again, thanks to everyone for the votes, and thanks in advance for your C+C!
  13. This was my bronze winning design for Event 7 of the 2014 Logolympiad. And these are the portions that didn't make it to the final presentation: Wordmark: Tertiary: Alternate Jersey: There were also some color layout variances (same scheme - different layout). If given more time I would have used it to make the letters more crisp, but let me know what you think.

  23. Ten submissions made the cut this time! Two were disqualified for not following the rules. The requirements for the Crossover event were: For this event, you have to crossover any American Basketball Association (1968-1976) team to American football. You have to create one colored uniform set, one helmet and a primary logo. The logo must incorporate one of the team's marks. Use the colors that are already part of the color scheme; do NOT add more colors (other than white). The uniform set should include a jersey and pants only. List your 3 favorites, ranked 1, 2, 3.

Entries Entry #1 Entry #2 Entry #3 Entry #4 Entry #5 Entry #6 Entry #7 Entry #8 Entry #9 Entry #10 Disqualified entries rayman's entry was disqualified for two reasons: the template was much bigger than the requested size (3333 px x 2500 px) and, most importantly, grey (or silver) was added to the color scheme. I specifically mentioned in the event's description that the chosen team was from the ABA between 1968 and 1976. While the New Jersey Nets have had grey in there color scheme, it was not between those years. Here is rayman's entry. Gfonk04's entry was disqualified for the color scheme: while the Spirit of St. Louis have silver on their uniform, it was a very light color compared to what was submitted (based on the ssur.org files). Keeping in line with my multiple comments through the event thread, I judged it too far off the normal color to accept it. Here is Gfonk04's entry.
