NABL team- Vancouver Mounties

Recommended Posts

Hey, everyone. I've been working on this for my NABL team the Vancouver Mounties. I think the unis and word mark came out great but I need some help on my mountie logo. It's my first illustrator logo and I can't figure out where to put his eye and in what position and how to use shadows on his face. I'm not sure if I should make him aggressive or nice either. All C&C is appreciated.

i like the identity so far, i think the eyebrow has to go so you can fit in an eyeball, and then put it basically where the eyebrow is now. I am guessing you are using names of Minnesota Timberwolves players throughout history, Kevin Garnett, Lance Blanks, and Terry Porter, but what is the significance of the numbers? KG is 21, so was Lance Blanks, and Porter was 30. i liked the subliminal pinstripes and the mountie hat on the back over the name, finish the mountie's face and it will be great.

i think an eye right below the eyebrow would work (i know, it sounds crazy, but give it a shot :))

and i would make him "nice"...your wordmark is somewhat whimsical, as are the numbers and the hat...making him aggressive would seem out of place

i really like what you've done with the wordmark and the hat is a really nice touch...i wouldn't overuse the mountie himself - the uniforms are really nice and i like the ghost stripes - the "v" on the waistband looks larger than the waistband itself, though

very solid work

Here's what I did. You can see the mountie himself as an alternate.

eRay- haha, actually they are just completely made up players in a simulation basketball league- Jason Garnett, Billy Blanks, and Casey Porter. I didn't actually realize that they were t-wolves players.

Brendan- haha I guess my thinking was off. Unless it really offends people, I think the smile is the right way to go. I was going for the whole Dudley Doorite theme as the cartoony and friendly mountie. No offense intended towards any RCMP or LE official.

fantastic concept!

what i would do is maybe make the Mountie's face not a side profile but a 3/4 profile. i know you dont want to offend anyone, but try lowering his eyebrow and maybe have him gnashing his teeth. i give this an A+ as well!!

Everything looks great! I might suggest changing the color of the lettering and number on the tan colored jersey. The mountie still doesn't look quite right, the head seems out of proportion in comparison to the hat...can't really put my finger on what needs to be done.

I think what he is sayong is maybe like the Senators jersey. Looking 3/4 of the way forward. I think this would work & look cool. :D

It's to cartooney for me, Mounties are serious people and to have a logo with a guy smilling is wrong. I think a M with the hat on it would be a geat logo.

jeesh, i think that is a rather uptight way to look at it man...

No, I don't agree because it would look a lot like The Mavericks a couple of years ago

This concept is really great but it seems to me that you don't know what to do with the hat...

I think I might have a suggestion...

In the word "Vancouver" the letter "O" being the center letter, make it bigger and make it wear the hat!

Just my opinion... Nice job really

by the way, the font is really cool, which one is it?

I don't know why, this just struck me as hilarious.
