San Diego Padres Concept


LMU

Recommended Posts

As I ranted in this post, the Padres are a complete mess.  So, in my frustration I felt motivated to whip up something to fix the problem.

Changes:

 

*Brown/gold color scheme

*Alternate wordmark uses for the home, current road wordmark tweaked to match closer to home wordmark

*1997-2011 swinging friar recolored and used as a sleeve patch

*1978 gold alternate updated with current logos/fonts

Great work! Could you try 'San Diego' with a bigger letter 'D' instead of the letter 'O' to see what that would look like? 

I was aiming to match the enlarged letters of the home wordmark. Plus I have a bit of OCD with symmetry so having enlarged letters that make it left heavy would drive me crazy.

Not bad at all! My only nitpick is that the home and road wordmarks are still not quite consistent. The "AN DIEG" text in the middle of the road wordmark needs to be moved up a bit so it's aligned with the middle of the S and the O.

Great mock up, but sadly, Dennis Lin has reported that MLB has told the Padres to cut the yellow from the coming new uniforms to streamline our look. This seems to suggest we'll have white and brown unis similar to the old St. Louis Browns.

 

I'm hoping white and brown on its own can work. Some of the Browns unis do look good.

 

I don't understand though why MLB has any influence in the Padres' decision making.

Brown/white would really fit the Catholic monk theme. It can work as a simple and reverent scheme - just ask St. Bonaventure's. That said, I doubt they're going back to brown, as that would make too much sense.
