mets logo, getting rid of the baseball


IceCap

Recommended Posts

so many major leauge teams feature a baseball in the logo, and imo soem of them are really unnesecary, like the mets. if they removed the stitching from the logo it would look pretty clean and nice imo. so i decided to see what the mets logo would look like if it was less baseball-like. the logo on top is the current logo, the logo below is the current logo without baseball features.

thanks everyone for their input. i dont see why its neccesary for the mets logo to double as a baseball. imo it has to many elements ("Mets" the bridge, the skyline). the stiches just make it look cluttered to me. oh well, at least i can say i tried :D

I gotta disagree with this one. The stitching on the Mets logo is so subtle, so nicely hidden, that when it goes away, it just looks... weird.

And not only that, but I think the Mets are the only team that have yet to change their logo since their inception (even the yankees originally had the NY split up).

actually they have changed it. up until 1998 the mets had their "NY" logo in the left portion of the logo. u can see for yourself at chris' site *who i would like to thank for the mets logo in the first place*

Why not just get rid of the skyline and the bridge while we're at it?

Hmm...get rid of "NY" in logo, add black, get rid of pinstripes, get rid of baseball stitches in logo. Why not just go with an all new identity instead of dicking around with things thinking we won't notice?

Oh and by the way, you'd never guess it by my initial response, but I like your concept.

I agree - you need the stitches.

imo it loos cleaner without the stiches. its not suppose to be a baseball now, its just a circular logo.

Otherwise, why not take the skyline out of a circle?

this makes no sense to me. imo the stiches ubstructed the skyline.

What's with the trademark symbol being so big? The TM on that logo is almost as big as the NY. That also bothers me with the Cubs logo. You see the little R thing on the bottom right corner, and in some applications is very noticable.

My point is: why bother keeping it in a circular shape if you're not going to use the baseball?

What's the point of using any of it except the text if it's not going to be a baseball? :D

The A's logo has been around for a while so it's been accepted. I think if you took the stitches off the Mets logo you would probably need to add a little more detail to the skyline, perhaps some shadowing to the buildings or something. Add some shadowing and enlarge the Mets script and it could work. Or here's an idea..........why not just change the script to say "Metropolitans"?
