Midland Rockhounds Logo Overhaul

Recommended Posts

I've wanted for a while to do a redesign of the Midland Rockhounds logo, so as soon as the right idea struck me, i got to it. Their current logo is incredibly tacky and outdated, and needs a change really soon. So, i took the idea of Rockhounds and tried to add a little more meaning to it than just a dog with a rock, and instead i made a more realistically proportionate bloodhound with a coal miner's hat, which i envision becoming the symbol of the team and a big souvenir item. The shape behind is meant to represent a mine and the colors have a more Texas feel than before, and more appropriate for mining.

Good start, but I find it wired the the R and S are very big in relation to the rest of the letters. I understand what you were doing, but maybe try to reconfigure the logo so the letters aren't so big.

All the original logo needed was to turn Rockhounds into ROCKHOUNDS, your overhaul is a major step down

I like the direction this is going. As stated above, I'd consider playing some more with the flow of the wordmark. Also, it would be good to see a partial of just the dog's head and the home plate, as that would be more likely to appear on a cap.

I dig the concept and think it's already a vast improvement over their current cartoon logo. The ears of your hound look a bit too asymmetric too me though. Also, as Whittier S said, make one simplified version as well that could be on the cap. In regards to the wordmark, I find the font suitable but agree that the two enlarged letters look off. Imagine how this wordmark would look on it's own on the front of the uniform.
