GFB's Cardinals of St. Louis Concept!

Recommended Posts

Most of my concepts have been taking teams back in their history, so I have decided to change things up a bit. This time I am taking the Cardinals forward to their next step.....

For the logo, I tried to use the "Seahawk" method: keep the main points in tact, while creating a seamless design all the way through. Also, I decided to use the golden-yellow color as a more key part of the color design.

I decided to keep the uniforms cleaner, as they are right now. Minor changes include the "St. Louis" script on the road, a thicker outline on the hats, and on the red Alt. and BP jerseys, the script is white, avoiding the red on red like it is now. I also made a custom font for the numbers, styled after the Cardinals script....

C&C appreciated as always...

Absolutely awesome work. I think this is an awesome update and I applaud at how clean and finished the concept looks. Incredibly well done, I would slightly slightly make the yellow outline of the bird and bat logo a thinner. Other than that, unreal.

The Cardinals in the logos are just about perfect. It's the best idea to keep the exact same look and just modernise it. Improuvments: just get rid of the yellow outline and stick to a more simplified number font.

Overall, fantastic fantastic job. You should do the same thing with logos such as the the raiders, red sox, and the old sabres logo...

- yellow outline looks great, but maybe a tad thick.

- number font really attracts a lot of attention, and IMO takes away from the concept. I'm not suggesting block (though that would be fine,) but tone it down.

-The jerseys are screaming for sleeve trim. Otherwise they look like plain generic shirts with patches sewn on. The current uni's can get away with this, because there is white-space (or gray space) between the letters, so it looks like it is embroidered in, not just a patch.

-Road and BP cap are terriffic.

Very nice, just a few points:

- Great use of yellow, just thin the outlines out a bit.

- Might wanna change the 'St. Louis' script to blue on the aways for visibility's sake.

- Numbers are cool, but rather hard to read. Might want to tone down the (I guess you could call them) serifs. Also, could we see the other 9 numerals?

Very good update. A+ (and I hate the Cards! :P )

Very good, but just like others have said, the numbers should be a bit more simplistic (but I see what you are going for with the font) and the outline is a little too thick, but I still like it.

This is a great job and a perfect update. A+

Very futureistic. I would tone down the yellow outlines abit or eliminate them all-together. I like it!

/agree

great job on tweaking an classic in a good way. I think i would agree about the yellow outline. Maybe a pt or two lower on bold size. It appears too thick but lowering the size a point or two you got it.

As a Modernization Concept, yeah this is great. Just a few things:

-Cards' set should never include yellow anywhere except the beak of the birds, and the bat.

-The numbers aren't legible enough. Maybe a different custom font, or keep the regular block.

-That alt, way too much unnecessary Nike piping....Majestic does the baseball jerseys. ^_^

-Outlines are too thick.

I do, however, like the update of the birds. You didn't go all futuristic on them. You just changed the facial features a bit and their stance. They look a little more "cartoon" realistic, for lack of a better term, but they're not "cartoony", if that makes any sense. They're sweet, I'll just put it that way. Do I want them too change from what they have not, not really. But a lot of your features would be a welcome update down the road if they ever decide to.
