Las Vegas Aviators officially announced as new name of MiLB team

Recommended Posts

That logo is a joke, especially the whole "V" look forcefully place on it, just trying to be like the Golden Knights. 

 

 

Meet your newest member of the Kamen Masked Rider!

Can we just be glad that Brandiose didn't design this...otherwise, we'd've wound up with the "One-Armed Bandits" with an anthropomorphic slot machine swinging its own arm or something like that...

The navy on navy application may be the worst use of negative space in a logo ever. The top of the helmet disappears and makes the visor hard to recognize, and the mouth-mask takes on the Elvis Patriots logo.

This cap is pretty good, though.

They’re having a bit of the same problem that the Chargers did when they tried to introduce an italicized logo - the two strokes of the V, heading in different directions, disrupt the flow.  But it’s still a good-looking cap.

On the contrary, this is the one time in recent memory that I would have welcomed Brandiose being handed the creative reins on a minor league ballclub's rebranding. I imagine that their identity package for the Vegas Hammerin' Hermits would have featured a primary logo depicting an aged, disheveled, emaciated, and bare-assed naked Howard Hughes swinging a rolled-up will like a baseball bat.

Granted, the extended suite of logos featuring secondary mascots comprised of an anthropomorphized facial tissue, pint of banana nut ice cream, and bottle of codeine might have been tougher to pull off successfully, but I'd have been interested in seeing Jason and Casey take a shot at it.

A few takes ...

  • The Aviator head is a HUGE downgrade to the alien logo. Especially considering it was a top MiLB seller. Heck, I have one. It’s one of my favorite caps.
  • The LV cap is nice. I’d buy one. But, not the aviator hat. Woof.
  • I love the color scheme, sure it’s a bit Astros inspired, but outside of the Vegas Strip that is Southern Nevada - red rocks and desert. Which I love. I don’t blame them for going with a non-Vegas Strip inspired name. Though the Vegas Flamingos would have been cool.
  • In a way, I wish there were some elements of this look that were a bit cartoony? Or at least playful.

Good odds I’d buy THIS hat when I’m in Vegas next.

That V should have been put on the visor/ hard surface. Once it gets to the lenses it's a mess. A miss here.

It bothers me how high the glasses seem to be sitting on the bridge of this guy's nose. If you took the helmet off and tried to draw this guy's head, he'd look like Hector Hammond.

It's a fairly serious downgrade from the 51's which was an identity that was above average but still had enormous untapped potential. 

 

As someone mentioned earlier, something cartoonish would have worked well here. It's Las Vegas, the brand is supposed to be fun and playful.

 

 I would have liked a bi-plane with a cartoonish pilot and LV marked somewhere on the logo.

 

The colors are intriguing and pleasing, it doesn't scream Vegas to me and definitely an interesting choice for an Oakland affiliate since this is basically the Astros color scheme.
