A few years ago I did a number of concepts for defunct NFL teams. I'd seen a lot of concepts for modern teams and wanted to do something different. The results of the previous thread is here: https://imgur.com/a/P5PMx When I did them I kept getting requests for the Tawanda Kardex and the Rochester Jeffs (and other teams) At the time I couldn't come up with concepts I was happy with. Now I do. First up is the Tawanda Kardex. The team is famous for playing a grand total of one game in the NFL. Like a lot of local champions they simply weren't ready to play the better teams in the nation. At inception they were very similar to the Green Bay Packers. Local team, subsidized by local businesses made up of semi pro players. Difference is that GB had success early and Tawanda did not. Ironically, the company they were named after still exists. I started with the first name of the team, the Lumbermen. There is a high school team, the North Tawanda Lumberjacks. The high logo didn't really fit this project. This is what I came up for a logo. and this is what it looks like on a helmet. "Kardex" was going to be a little more difficult. How do you make a logo using a typewriter? I tried just using the outline of a typewriter but it didn't fit. While driving it hit me to combine a T&K in old typewriter text with the outline of a football covering where they would overlap in the corner. What I came up with didn't work as a modern logo but it formed the basis for a modern descendant logo. The Faux old time logo. Here's the "Modern" logo on a helmet. Here's the Workspace where I figured out my ideas. I'll work on unis later. First, I wanted to revisit a couple of the teams I did before. A revised Dayton Triangles. One of the ideas I had in making the designs was that somehow these teams had survived all the decades that in reality they didn't. It hit me that the team wouldn't keep such a dated logo during the 40's and 50's, 60's 70's etc... This is meant to be a Descendant of the original design, refined down to repeated triangle shapes within a larger triangle. A revised Oorang indians. I wanted to get rid of the feathers in the old design. It was too close to the Redskins and I wanted Native American iconography in the design. Tell me what you think.
