The serifs on the end of the letters make this whole logo. Only thing I'd change is it not being Houston. ;)

 

Actually, It might cool to try to find a way to incorporate some sky blue. Orange/sky blue is actually a pretty cool color combo.

I don't know how (un)popular of an opinion this is, but I absolutely hated when the Dynamo had sky blue in their uniforms. Something about it being paired with orange just looked awful to me. Maybe I'm the only one. 

 

That said, I love this concept. Far superior to what they currently use.

Thanks, guys.

 

I left out Space City Blue (that's the official name for this very shade of blue) because I really don't like that color in combination with black and orange. In my view, it's a little too pale in order to be a good or at least necessary supporting color. I've read countless of comments from Houston Dynamo fans on various forums who, like me, rather dislike Space City Blue, wishing that color wasn't part of the scheme. These are the two reasons why I didn't use it on the rebrand. I also think that the mark looks cleaner since it's simpler in shape and color scheme.

Nice work, very good looking update, agree about leaving the pale light blue out, altogether.

Damn, you nailed this. I always thought that the Dynamo's branding wasn't too far off being great, but the shield they have just didn't quite hit the mark. It doesn't need a lot, just some tweaks and they're there. It looks too busy, and with this I think you really nailed the look while keeping it clean and classy. Nice.

Thank you, WarriorFight. I absolutely agree with you that their current mark is too busy. Simplification was the main reason for me to overhaul it, including to drop that unnecessary Space City Blue.

looks too much like columbus, nyc, atl, or philly.but i guess that long list of teams with similar looking logos speaks for itself doesnt it lol

 

The only striking similarity that I see is the fact that all those clubs you've mentioned use roundels as their primary mark.
