It would be hard for any original team identity to be anything other than a step up here. So far, all I really see is a cap, though it's probably safe to make assumptions about the jersey script. It's at least an interesting color scheme. And although the cap logo is not the direction I would have gone, it's at least fair-to-average by MiLB standards. The cap logo is a little more complicated than I would prefer, but its simplicity of lines and forms and compact shape prevents it from being too busy.

The team is going for a 1950s retro sci-fi vibe here, and on those terms it's hard to call the team logo and the cap anything other than a success. The likely uniform script is promising, too.

This is absolutely stupid.

Great Falls has SUCH a strong relationship with the Lewis and Clark Expidition. It was at Great Falls where the Corps of Discovery spent a lot of time portaging the falls. Why doesn't Great Falls carry a Lewis and Clark-oriented name and logo instead of a stupid UFO thing?

I for one like the hat logo. I looked around the site and can't seem to find any script logos, so I'll have to wait for my judgement on that.

EDIT: Nevermind, my computers just slow. I think that the script is achieving what it's going for, as t's mixing MiLB style into that 1950's UFO feeling.

While a Lewis and Clark-themed name would certainly work for a Great Falls-based team, it's not as though the UFO theme is without strong local ties... particularly to baseball. As pointed out on the Voyagers' web-site, Nick Mariana was General Manager of the Pioneer League's Great Falls Selectrics when he spotted and filmed the UFOs that inspired this new identity.

Doesn't their CBA Basketball team have the Explorer logo - a lewis & clark looking pioneer for their logo??

I can't post the logo right now - I will later.

And thus why this is a nice departure. While "Voyagers" continues Great Falls' explorer/pioneer/cowboy theme, Dan did a very nice job removing it from the absolutely droll, boring and pigeon-holed branding of only Wild West themes.

While I do not know who had the final say as to the design's direction, this is an exceptional logo package from a great designer. All of the pieces fit together perfectly (I'm talking to you, Quad Cities)...the secondary logos (martian in ship) look great and the color pallette is unique.

IMHO, this is a solid A, teetering on A+.

My gut reaction was that it was a well done logo that wasn't that inspiring. (have you ever noticed that even the "bad" logos by good designers are still in a league of their own?)

But the more I look at it, the more I like it. I think a big part of the initial reaction was how it was used on the website. The gray with a green background does nothing good for this logo. But on white, it looks much better.

The V logo is pretty sharp and for some reason, i really dig the UFO logo.
