Got something for you guys to C&C. Its for a request for a semi-pro team. Any and all C&C is appreciated. The colors are the colors because thats the teams colors presently. Also the shield is modeled after the rankings patch on a soldiers sleeve.

Thanks in advance for the C&C.

In general, I love it.

Great work.

Two suggestions. One, take into account what Payno said and look into the history/meaning behind the patch.

I know nothing about it, but the last thing you want is to insult veterans unwittingly and get the team in trouble. I believe in artistic license, but for all we know, the stripes facing down is a terrible thing.

Two, however subtley, can you make it a "wee" bit more obvious its for a sports team?

I ordinarily HATE obvious, literal imagery in logos, but this might need it.

OTher than that......look really nice.

thanks man, from you that means a lot. I admire your work a lot. I will definitely look into the meaning of the patch, thats a great point about not wanting to tick off vets. I think we have a few army vets in here, so feel free to let me know about the history. Ill also do the research. Ill also maybe try a football in the middle instead of the stars to tie it in more with the sport. Yeah that would be kinda bad if an upside down patch means something really bad. Ill try it with the wordmark on the bottom and the patch on top, it might just work (It works for the columbia river dragons of the nbdl). thanks for all of your C&C so far.

what if you turned the logo over, then arched the wordmark down underneath it, basically just trade the two positions.

that logo would look GREAT on an all green helmet.

thats exactly what i was thinking. keep the c&c coming guys. I greatly appreciate it!

Looks good, and I like the treatment alot? but you might want to think about the idea/rationale of the using stripes a bit more, it evokes more of an officers feel than a soldiers.

You may want to do some searching on some throughout the web using "military patches" as your search info. There are some really great patches out there you can draw reference from which may evoke more of a division reference (ie. 1st Armored Division or Air Cav) as opposed to a rank reference (ie. General or Corporal).

Also some reference to the sport might be nice too, ie adding stitches to the arch to evoke a sense of football if you still use the same design, although I am not 100% sure of the sport but you catch my drift.

Just some thoughts.

This is a terriffic set of feedback!

Soldiers, signified by a staff sergeant's stripes seems a little like jumbo shrimp to me.

Those patches for divisions are often incredibly cool. Check some out.

indeed i was thinking of doing that too. Ill reverse the patch like posted earlier and also make another option exploring a unit patch, hopefully making a unique one for the team that still has an army feel to it instead of copying one, unless say its on froma unit that was based at fort benjamin harrison here in indy or one that is based at camp atterbury a lil south of here

FWIW, take a 180 on the design. That way the "point" of the logo is headed up rather than down, which is what you'd want the teams fortunes to be. You can either leave the letting block as is, or leave Soldiers along the larger arc on the bottom and split up the "Circle City" and have each word follow the one of the two smaller arcs on the top.

Another possibilty, since we are talking about Circle City, incorporate the logo inside a larger circle with a thick border (like on a patch) and have the word "Circle along the top half of circle and "city" along the bottom half.

FWIW this is not meant as a knock on your artistic ability, just some observations.

1) The first thing I thought of when I saw the logo was that it belonged to a Seattle Supersonics community initiative, rather than a sports team. The fonts, colours and the arch of the text is very reminiscent to me of the Sonics primary logo.

2) On first look the insignia looked like a broken air vent/airconditioning duct - the area the stars are flying from looked like a broken slat/louvre (I dunno what they're actually called). Instead of stripes/chevrons I saw slats/louvres.

3) What sport does this team play, and where are they from?

All in all I like the presentation of the work, but not sure about the logo itself.
