Akron Zips!

Recommended Posts

What can I say, this is one of my favorite logo packages. The Zips design is amazing, Joe Bosack did an excellent job with this university. That being said, I wanted to come up with something stylish for the football squad....the helmet with the just the ears on it is just something cool I thought of. Kinda cute eh?

I absolutely love this Evan, for the second helmet. Put only one ear on each side. It'll look adoreable. :D

Haha yes, it will be adorable, and they'll get laughed off the field. :D Nice jerseys, but I'd say go white or gold pants at home and gold helmets. I dig the sleeve stripes though.

Nice job! I love that second helmet, too.

BTW, nice signature image. It's not everyday that you see Mr. Trevor Horn sneeking around. :D

Why would they get laughed off the field? One ear on each side is no different than one ram horn on each side.

Kill thears. It looks too dopey. I like the first helmet, but I think a white helmet would look better. as well as white or gold pants

if youre going to do two helmets. make the home helmet gold with the blue roo on it, and make the away navy with one gold ear on each side. id also delete and centre stripes from them to add sleekness to this already modern uniform set. use those navy pants with the away, and add a pair of gold pants for use with the home set. great job. the numbers fir the style very well, and the jersey pattern is very unique. id like to see it in real action.

It's not a bunny. It's Zippy the kangaroo.

"Zippy" the kangaroo was officially declared The University of Akron's mascot on May 1, 1953. Chair of a committee to suggest a mascot, All-American Zip diver Bob Savoy recommended the kangaroo and it was approved by the student council.

At first much resentment and apathy surrounded the decision, which was made without the benefit of a campuswide vote. Defenders of the kangaroo countered with, "it is an animal that is fast, agile and powerful with undying determination - all the necessary qualities of an athlete."

Pete Demming appeared as the first "Zippy" kangaroo at the inaugural Acme-Zip football game in 1954.

Now fully accepted and an integral part of UA's athletics program, "Zippy" is revered by alumni and loved by children.

I hate Zippy he assaulted me once. His snout gave me arug burn on hte end of my nose. Ture story Lose teh ears. Stay with teh gold helmet. It looks great on them IMO and white is just too plain.

go with it! I like the full head idea more, but I think this one is pretty cool. That being said, I really don't care for that gold as a helmet color. I really like that gold, but I prefer it as an accent color and to help compliment the blue and the white. We'll see what happens though...

I love it; its definitely an improvement over the pseudo-Rams look they have now. I like how you used the curved stripes; you made a cliche look original. Overall, they look sharp.

Gotta hate it when a school doesn't implement good designs well :mad: ...

It's still extremely annoying, in fact you saying that CRAVENS!

Now about the concept, I love the way the side stripes signify the movement of the kangaroo. Its almost like the kangaroo hopped along the line to get to where it is on the sleeves. nice work.
