So I'm not a big fan of the flag of my homestate South Dakota. They had a great design until they relinquished clain to the title of "The Sunshine State" to Florida. After that they just slapped the state seal on the sun and called it "The Mount Rushmore State." In 1989 a home grown artist by the name of Dick Termes came up with a design that, over the years, beame popular enough to bring a "motion to change the flag" to the legislature in 2012. That motion failed and we are still stuck with a boring, unoriginal design. I have been tinkering with my own version of a SD flag and have narrowed it down to 3 options. I'm looking for some feedback on their shapes, I will clean up a final version once it's narrowed down. All three incorporate the sun shape, that has always been a part of the flag, combined with an outer ring of red diamonds. The outer ring creates a look similar to a Lakota War Bonnet design (this adds a Native American element). I also added a circle of color to the center of the sun to give the look of a sunflower which is one of our states leading crops (this adds an agricultural element). Finally they all show some sort of stripe that moves behind the sun and expands to the right of the design, this is depicting our expanding future, the way that products goods and services from our state shine accross the country, and it helps re-inforce the agricultural aspect by creating the look of an old fashioned windmill (our state is expanding rapidly in the modern wind turbine/energy industry). 1. 2. 3. This concept adds the shape of the Lakota medicine wheel. Easier to compare visually: Please let me know what you think of the concepts.
Here's the uniforms Here's the logo set For the uniforms, I kept the basic template fairly the same with the lightning bolt based design, however the obvious updates are the new color of foam green which replaces navy along with a new powder blue and yellow that are similar but not the same to what they use now, a new font which is one of Conrad's (thank you) called Tempe, a white facemask, and a return to the blue jersey/yellow pants scheme. There are yellow numbers as well. With the logos, the bolt stays but is recolored to fit the new scheme. I made a secondary based off of the old horse logo but changed some things. C&C would be awesome! Thanks!
