Miami Marlins Redesign

Recommended Posts

So, I recently became aware the of the Miami Marlins batting practice logo, and let me just say, I'm a huge fan. Such a big fan that I would like to see it become their full time logo, which is the direction I went in with this concept. I used Brandon Moore's excellent Nike template, which I first became aware of through the Neat-O Gang, and completely eliminated all the extraneous colors from their color scheme, focusing on just orange and sky blue.

Home- As with all the jerseys, I used a blue hat and helmet with orange brim and blue socks. The main accent pattern is a simple two toned stripe on the sleeve's edge and the side of the pants, and the #OB stays similar to their current with 3D effect, because you know, Miami.

Away- Identical design as the home.

Alternate 1- This is the alternate I envision as being their main alternate, worn both at home and on the road. Still very similar to the previous two, with white numbers with orange shadow.

Alternate 2- I don't really like when teams have two similar alternates, such as the Marlins do, so I shook up the Orange jersey with the recolored M on the left breast, blue sleeves, and the Flag of Miami as a sleeve patch. I would envision this as being only worn at home, with it having a "Miami Pride" kind of theme.

 

 

What do you think of this new look for the Miami Marlins? Upgrade, Downgrade, still meh? C&C appreciated as always, thanks!

I'm not a fan of the M logo. There just isn't enough contrast in the two oranges on the M.

Secondly, what you've put out is very reminiscent of something the New York Mets would wear, a team in the same division. The design itself isn't an issue though, so I'd maybe go with some different colors. I would love the teal to return, personally.

On its own merits this is a solid concept, but I agree with @Dan O'Mac that this makes the Fish look too much like the division rival Mets. Maybe go with a lighter shade of blue?

I too feel the red in the logo is unnecessary and doesn't contrast enough with the orange. Also not a huge fan of the numbers style you used. I'd either use their current one or find a more 'art deco' numbers style.

Miami Marlins or Miami Mets? If the mets weren't around this is a great look for Miami. Maybe stick with a teal based blue instead of royal?

I don't like all that orange in the M.

Those are the same two shades as are in the actual logo, but I agree they are two similar, I can change that. I'm not totally blind to that comparison, in fact I was kind of worried about how much these might have resembled the Mets, (part of the reason I added blue sleeves to the orange alt. was because I thought it had looked to similar to the "Los Mets" jersey) but I thought the shade of blue was different enough to separate the identities. I hear everyone loud and clear though, will probably change to teal after tweaking.

I was actually pretty happy with the font, but since it's not too different than the current I can easily make the switch.

 

Thanks for the feedback everyone, will make the adjustments!

I have to agree unfortunately, every time the Mets and the marlins would play each other, (18 times a year, or at least it used to be) it would get very confusing to tell who's who
