Redesign of Strake Jesuit College Preparatory (+Football uni)

Recommended Posts

Sometimes I forget that this forum actually has guidelines to protect against inappropriate language and wish to scream my frustrations to people who have a similar passion as me. It's like as if the mere possibility of talented people, such as Bruins, Raysox, Ren69, Nordiques, MrWonka, mcrosby, etc. seeing my inner monologue appear beside my work will make me feel vindicated and truly appreciative of myself.

I really like the addition of red. I like to set rules for myself when working with 3 or more colors. In your case I'd go with red never touching green or red never touching white. A simple rule like this, and line weight rules will really upgrade your logos.

@mcrosby is this what you meant? Sorry it doesn't look too great at the top, but i assume you get what i'm going for

Something like that. Obviously it takes some playing around with, and there will always be exceptions to rules, but it's helped me immensely.

I really like the red in the plume, but I don’t think it works in the eye. The eye hole would be the darkest part of the helmet and the lighter red doesn’t work against the darker green. I think it could work If you were to have just a slither of red inside the eye (similar to the link attached below).

Personally I think this logo lends itself to the single colour and my personal favourite would be your latest logo in green only.

Really cool to see the design develop with every revision... its a great match when a designer open to suggestions finds a site with members willing to help... golf claps all around!

(takes concept of color rules and subsequently breaks said rule)

Also this kinda looks like a zombie crusader but eh  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Even if it does break colour rules, I think the red looks less forced on this design. Still I’d prefer to see this single colour - green plume, green cross and then with or without a white eye.

This is a massive upgrade for Strake. Have you tried making only the Crusader's neck cross red? I think that would really make the logo pop and provide more consistency to past logos
