That's a great first impression. Can't wait to see the rest of this identity

Their twitter account has a wordmark:

 

1500x500

 

Not a bad idea, but the kerning there is pretty awful.

It's a huge upgrade (albeit a tad generic), and looks to put them near the top of their league's brandings. Excited to see the rest.

The word mark and snake head don't match. The word mark should be more fluid

I also just noticed the Bank Gothic at the top.

 

NO. STOP THAT.

The more I look at this the less I like it. The perspective is off, which you can really see in the nostrils area. Also, aren't cottonmouths supposed to have a bright white mouth? Hence the name? Overall it is in the right direction from what they had, but seems kinda half-@$$ed IMO.

It's better than what they had, but it's still pretty unpleasant. Also, they changed the snake jersey numbers last season from the old St. Louis Vipers font to a near-illegible knockoff.

The old one had too much history associated with it...this is TECHNICALLY a better design, but I'm not giving this five years for nostalgic reasons.

Overall it is a mostly solid look, especially at first glance, but sometimes I wish I wasn't such a perfectionist so I wouldn't have to notice all the small details. I agree with Hettinger about the perspective on the nostrils being off. The word mark also has some areas of inconsistent spacing, and the thick blue outline on the letters doesn't fit with the outline-less snake. Again, it is a big upgrade. To the average fan it'll do, but I still think it could benefit from one final round of touch-ups.

  • Is this the best logo in the Sphl 

 

It's definitely an upgrade from what they had, but I don't think it's the best in the SPHL.

 

I am supremely biased, so I won't share my SPHL logo rankings right now. What does everyone else think?

IMO, not by a long shot. I think that goes to Pensacola.

I can agree with that. My top three would be Pensy, Mississippi (bias alert!), and Huntsville. Peoria's look is pretty solid, too.

 

I think the main thing I dislike about Columbus' new look is that they've abandoned green. One reason we (RiverKings) changed from green to black & gold was because both the Snakes and Gators used it. Now that Columbus dropped it (and Louisiana is inactive for a year), there is no green in the league. Columbus could've owned it in the SPHL.

Previews of alt logos

So we have a "Snakes" script plus the water tower mark The Barn had in their sketches. Looks like some neat art; can't wait to see how they utilize it.
