New York Americans

Recommended Posts

sheesh...seems like when I have a favorite, I like to stick to it. So once again, I have a New York Americans concept for your viewing pleasure,and similar to a blushing bride I bring you something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue...tacking on something modified, here goes the full logo set:

and then the uniforms:

home/dark

away/white

the home/away design is almost exactly the same design I used for the last Americans set, the only real difference is the modified NY and new breezers. the two alts I released the last time out were a flag-based red/white hooped design and Yankee-ish pinstripes, so I wanted to do something that resembled neither. this was basically done off the cuff, in all honesty.

the shoulder logo, the five stars, is essentially the same as my last try, this is the only logo that wasn't modified or completely new...the Americans wordmark now has a star dotting the I, and over time, the old NY/flame looked dated to me, so I decided to slightly alter the NY, and made a more radical change to the flame, which used to be all red but now has an inner gold flame. There used to be a torch A logo as well, but that didn't seem to age that well, so I created the flame-star as a result.

So what say you, Creamerboard?

Nice job on the uniforms. I'm just not a big fan of the NY logo. It reminds me too much of the Yankees and Knicks.

I love it, except for the stars you've put on the jerseys. I think it's a tad bit busy for a home and an away. I love your colors here and I love the logos.

I absolutely love the NY-torch. Freakin' genius. The flame star isn't even in it's league. The flame for the top point over-powers the rest of the shape almost to the point were it's not a star. I know it is, but I think I should see star first, flame second for that one. Tone that down, and you've got a winner.

the socks on the home/away just look too much like a joke. I would never take a team with those socks seriously. looks alot like dr.sues.

other then that very good idea that has been well done!

Like the jerseys, but I don't like the candy-cane socks. I think those should be changed similar to the alternate's socks.

Pippi called she wants her Longstockings back. :D

But truthfully it is a very good set. Besides making the socks more traditional, I would thin the flame on top of the star just a bit, and drop the stars in the stripes. Instead I would make the striping on the home and away mimic the flag striping.

But that is just me.

I really like the primary logo.

Something about the primary bugs me. It looks like a person or something. The fire looks like a mop of red hair.
