I had this idea out of nowhere, and I took it far, so here it is. My design for the supposed MLS expansion team to be put in Nashville, Tennessee. Here's what I came up with. The MLS has had a trend where teams forego regular names for an "FC" moniker, which is something I wanted to avoid, but at the same point, I wanted to create a brand that could unify the city. So, I subverted the "FC" name and opted for "SC," meaning Soccer Club. And rather than choosing a direct mascot, I chose to make the city name more creative than a lot of other teams using the "-C" name do, but choosing a nickname for Nashville. With that decided, the name was clear: Music City SC. The next thing to make was the logo. Nashville is a big city with a lot of things it encompasses, a lot of which I tried to incorporate into the logo. The colors came from the two major sports teams in the city, the Nashville Predators and the Tennessee Titans. The shape came from both a country guitar and the (in)famous AT&T Building in Nashville, and there are some other influences from the Nashville Parthenon. The Parthenon addition is a bit more subtle, so I'd like to see if anyone can spot it. Without further ado, here's the logo as well as the jerseys. The jerseys have some influence like I was talking about above. The home is pretty cut and dry, with a classical style. The road features a six-string diagonal chest stripe taken from a guitar's strings, and the alternate jersey is inspired by the Tennessee flag, and would be used to help conjure up some state pride. And that's that! What do you guys think?
