Tampa Bay Rays 20th anniversary logo

Recommended Posts

I read an article this weekend talking about the Rays having a 20th anniversary patch for next year, but it should be this year. I decided to take initiative and design my own Rays 20th anniversary patch.

The first season was 1998 though.  20th season, yes.  20th year, no.

Looks ok for a banner around the stadium but its too long for a patch. I'd want them to incorporate the ACTUAL Ray, not that awkward shine thing

2017 is the 20th season of play, 2018 would be the 20th anniversary of play.  Teams seem to do what they please.

Well this should be in concepts since it's just that, a concept.

Besides the obvious error, this looks like a great concept.

 

But I think you should put some element of the Devil Rays in there but that's just my 2 cents.

I agree with this.  I feel like when teams (especially newer teams) have some type of anniversary logo, they try to incorporate elements of all of their previous identities into the logo.  I feel that this logo should have the devil ray in there somewhere, as they were the Devil Rays for around half of their existence so far.

 

I'd even like to see some type of incorporation of their old wordmark(s), although I definitely see how that would be difficult to do while keeping the logo looking cohesive.

Wonder if we need a new thread: logo changes that were worse than the original, lol. How anyone could like that starburst over a devil ray is beyond me.

The primary logo at the top dominates the design; I don't think it's even necessary.
