NWSL Expansion by mcrosby: COMPLETE!

Recommended Posts

I like the colours already. As Brian said, the D is kind of hard to make out for what it is. Mile High Athletic sounds like a great name, but we could make it Denver Athletic so that we can still incorporate the D in some way.

NOW I have 4 clubs left + Las Vegas reworks

 

  • Chicago Red Stars
    • I'm still open to other name suggestions
  • Orlando Pride
    • anything better than the fountain? 
  • San Antonio
    • Express isn't really my jam, what else you got? 
  • ABQ/Denver
    • Denver is a decent idea. Denver City is nice, open to anything else. What do you want to see on a logo? 

 

Honestly, I think a lot of us agree to sticking with the Red Stars name. x3

 

For the Orlando Pride, the fountain is quite prominent on the city flag, so you could stick with it, or pay homage to the original OCSC crest and have three lionnesses on it. 

 

San Antonio.... Sting? I remembered the Scorpions before the NASL disbanded, which is a shame... I really liked their logo and such. Mayhaps pay homage to that?

Glad to see a 5280 concept. A few years ago, I though of Denver 5280 as a soccer team name, and it's nice to see you use it and do better with it than I could.

As much as I love this logo, I find the Witch/occult theme unfitting for New England as a whole. That's pretty much localized in the Salem area. I grew up in Greater Boston and never saw anything witchy. I much prefer the Muses/Academics theme, as that is much more spread out through the region.

Au contraire! I've grown up on Mount Hope Bay near RI and a lot of the local towns like Bridgewater and Swansea have histories of occult dealings.

This was a late night idea for Washington that does away with the overdone red-white-blue of DC teams and is more in the spirit of the city. The diamond is split by cherry branches and follows the paths of the Potomac and the Anacostia Rivers. on the cherry branch is a wood thrush, official bird of DC. I was going to sharpen up the bird some more, but I sort of like the rough illustration look.

This logo is phenomenal, anytime a state can be worked into a logo I think it’s just the coolest. I do agree the green seems a little off, and the font just doesn’t sit with me.

The font and thrush have been updated. See the other post. 

That said, if I went with Austin instead of San Antonio (due to how young that city has gotten) what would you call that club?

  • Austin Weird FC
  • Austin Bats/Colony FC
  • ?

The only things I've ever come up with Austin concepts are Bats and Academics.

Why not go all out on Austin and call the team Vampires FC?

San Antonio Fiesta SC is something I could think of 

 

Austin Bluebonnet FC? 

Austin Violets FC? - In the late 19th century, Austin was known as the "City of the Violet Crown," because of the colorful glow of light across the hills just after sunset. (Wikipedia)

I haven't come by proper inspiration for the 3 remaining clubs, so I've gone back and made some adjustments to a previous club. I wasn't quite satisfied with the Fillies, so I've added a crest shape akin to the racing silk of Genuine Risk, one of the top fillies of all time.

I didn't do much with Chicago. My main goal was to give them a C-star logo that could stand on its own and give a more classic feel to their brand. Chicago's baseball teams and wishbone C'd football team lent some design cues.

Love the update to the Red Stars. It’s my belief that a good soccer crest should have some sort of talisman to rally around. You nailed that with the C-star.

FULL PROJECT HERE. Please go appreciate it on Behance.

 

Inspiration finally hit for the second Texas club. We've all heard of Austin City Limits, so Austin City already rolls off the tongue. If you've seen my MLS redesigns you know I also have an affinity for armadillos.

My iteration of the Orlando Pride FC logo is going to lean into one aspect of pride over the other.

And here's all 20 clubs:

I like how you went with Austin City as name of team but I am assuming that you decided on using Violet color for the team????
