SERIES FINALE

#30 MINNESOTA TWINS

Alright, let's start with colors. Anybody who follows this thread had to know I was axing the navy and red, well at least one of them (red), for this concept. Enter kelly green. Then pair it with navy blue and a steely light blue. I think this color scheme works well for a Minnesota-based team, as it invokes memories of trees, lakes, and sky. I also had to think of an abstract way to show the twin relationship (something I am quite familiar with, being a twin and all, but never had to describe graphically, until now that is). I decided to take an MT monogram (not sure if the term changes when it's 2 letters) and I split it in half. This, IMO, shows the idea of two parts becoming a whole. This is also the idea behind the argyle: two diamonds that share a bond (third diamond). The uniforms feature the argyle, as well as a modified block font, which the Edmonton Oilers use on their alternate jerseys (or at least they did, not sure). I decided that using green for the homes and navy for the roads also fell in line with the duplicity I was going for. The Sunday Alt. has more of a retro style, and features the MT as a crest. Anyways, I hope everyone has enjoyed looking at and commenting on this series as much as I have enjoyed creating it. So C&C please, and I will make updates to the Twins if necessary.

Very Creative. It's a little tough to see the M and T, but best and most creative twins concept I've seen. Great work on the whole series, sad to see it come to an end. I would love to see what you could do with the NHL.

Wow. I really like the green. That logo is pretty cool too. Great work.

When I read you were changing the colors I wasn't so sure, but this? This is freaking awesome. Love everything about it. The cap logo looks really nice and the colors work well together. The argyle is definitely unique for a baseball uni which makes it that much better.

Superior work here.

-im curious to see the logo with the M large showing the hierarchy of the Minnesota Twin (as it appears now Twins Minnesota) so maybe just making it appear that the M is infront of the T

-also maybe the navy is too dark, maybe use the blue from the new wolves uni's ( the blue is pantone 647, and the green is pantone 355)

but other than that its AWESOME

That might be one of the most ingenius insights I've come across in quite some time, particularly in this forum. Absolutely excellent.

Just wanted you to know that.

I thought long and hard about this one. As a twin, I really wanted to do this one justice.

i cant believe im saying this, but the twins look much better in green and blue, which ties them to the timberwolves. good set, bohob, and great series.

I really like it. I didn't at first, but after looking closer at it, it really grew on me quickly. The only thing I don't like is that the MT monogram is a little difficult to distinguish what it is. My suggestion would be to switch the colors on the M but leave them the same on the T, making the half on the left green and the half on the right blue. A quick mockup in MS Paint of what I mean.

I had tried that, but in the end I felt it was too busy to look good on a cap.

The roads remind me of the Mariners. In order to avoid that I would keep the green as the primary color on both the road and homes, It would seperate them from the mariners.

Maybe if you switched the home and away caps, it would solve the problem of looking like the Mariners.

OK, so is everyone talking about this concept looking like the Mariners current duds, or my Mariners concept? Because I really don't think it looks like my Seattle concept.

We're referring to their current uniforms.

What seattle's current uniforms look like isn't relevant, as this whole series was about creating new looks for each team. bohob's Seattle concept is different from the current look, thus if all these uniforms were ever actually created, Seattle and Minesota would look nothing alike. End of story
