Trying to fix Michigan State’s neon alternate with some sketches I did in class

Recommended Posts

So we saw what Michigan State rolled out a few days ago. Not the best. Personally, I find the size of the wordmark to be the biggest issue, no pun intended. The lime green actually pairs well with their current green, IMO, so while I don’t think they need to use it (if they want an alternate they should use the bronze and black set they had not too long ago), but the basketball team has used neon, so I guess they want to make it a thing and I’m trying to help them out a bit. 

 

I’ve got two designs, both are working within the confines of the current home and road uniforms (AKA: I’m not designing this from scratch, just recoloring). The first one is more restricted, the second throws it all in your face. Both use just “STATE” on the front, because that’s what the actual neon alternate used so I kept it, just a lot smaller. Without further ado, here they are:

Is it better than what they actually went with? That’s not up to me, that’s for you guys to judge

Literally was putting something along these lines together. I mean, there's no such thing as bad press, so I know they intentionally went overboard with the font size. The lime and dark green definitely can be put together in a more "natural" way. I love what you have here other than I'd still like to see the lime pants with the dark jersey. At least that's what I was putting together.

First off, your drawings are excellent. Second, I don't think you go wrong with either of your designs. As HRC4 said, I wonder what your designs with a dark green jersey and lime green pants would look like.

If Sparty went with your second sketch they wouldn't get razzed as badly as they are right now.

Your drawing is absolutely fantastic. Wish I was at that level.

 

And the green over neon combo is a winner in my books. Simple change, but I think it’s a solid improvement.
