HECK YES TO ALL OF IT!

 

I think this is a great use of the City Jerseys. Is it MiLBish? Yes. But, we kind of already turned that corner already. I'd love to see other mockups and what-ifs like the Charlotte Flight, Orlando Juice, Minnesota Polars, etc. I'm sure there are some what-if designs laying around.

The Wild's website includes one for each of the names they considered

Proposed name nights are minor league, but honestly it’s the best thing minor league does. It’s the most professional thing they do. I’d love to see every team have a “franchise” uniform, like the association and icon and all that. But the franchise is a throwback, classic, or proposed look. Embracing the teams (while not always great) origins and history.

Art Deco?

And no.  The original design was trash, and not even Conrad can polish this one. 

I think he means the logo on the far right hat.

 

also it’s not for their main set, it’s just for one or two years, I think it works.

I have a theory that this board is far more favorable to homegrown content and ideas than they are to anything produced outside of it. I've seen you guys be so kind so some really bad ideas and poop on solid stuff

Not off the top of my head. Just something I've noticed over the years

 

Well that's vague. Is it something to do with the concepts that we praise, people liking/disliking minor-league identities, or anything of the sort? I'd like examples, please.

 

Because let me tell you, the Swamp Dragons is only good in the ironic sense. The name is way too silly for an NBA team, the logo makes the Raptors' initial logo look almost austere, and the font choice is delightfully dated. It's trash, but trash that gets clicks and @CC97 loves him some clicks (but not fixing database errors)!

There is a bias toward established community members who have ascended from hobbyist to in-the-biz, but not so much that their worst beats outsiders' best. andrewharrington, BrandMooreArt, and Fraser Davidson have broken out of here, but people still argue about their work, often to their e-faces.
