2010 Minnesota Twins Ballpark Inaugural Logo Idea

Recommended Posts

I'm sure a final design has been approved for the Twins' Inaugural logo for next year's move outdoors, but here's one I came up with.

Following the guidelines that sponsors are not allowed on uniforms, I put in a graphical tagline of "home sweet home"

Comments welcomed.

Inaugural-season logos almost always (the Mets being a big exception) have some kind of trademark of the stadium in them. Here's some examples. Maybe try adding something unique from Target field in your logo.

:blink: If all one sees is Inaugural Sweet, then that's what you see! Some may see twin plates!

:rolleyes: Why can't an Inaugural (season in new ballpark) be Sweet?

:therock: Besides, if you read it as a page, it reads "Inaugural 20 TC 10 Sweet" anyway! It's not a page.

How did you make the patch look like a patch?

I used Adobe Illustrator -> Corel DraWings -> Adobe Photoshop is create the patch image.

"Inaugural-season logos almost always (the Mets being a big exception) have some kind of trademark of the stadium in them."

Very true. As you said, "almost always". And I believe the Mets logo IS a variation of the ballpark's logo...

I see your signature is sporting some patches as well. Do you have a template for this or could you please possibly explain how you created the patch effort with those three programs? thicon_biggrin.gif

I created the design in Illustrator CS4, saving it as an Illustrator 3 file. Then I open this in Corel Draw and export it as a Corel exchange file.

Opening this file in Corel DraWings, you need to "digitize" for embroidery. I can then produce a file for actual embroidery, but I just export it as a bitmapped .png file. Opening this up in Photoshop, I just do some minor tweaks.

I did this for all the helmet patches in my Signature as well.

I did find somewhere on this Forum that someone posted instructions on how to fake an embroidered look using only Photoshop. I believe it was a post for a baseball cap template.

Being a collector of sports logo embroidered patches, I am NOT a fan of those ballpark/stadium logos that are slight variations of their "Inaugural" logos.

I like a bigger variety of designs so a bigger variety of patches may become available for my collection!

Hmm, I'll have to do some research and see if I can find that thread, unless somebody already knows where it is. When and if I do find the topic, I'll post the link in here just in case anyone is just as curious as I am. Thanks for the tip!

I think a more accurate logo would be a logo that looked something like:

GAME CALLED

DUE TO RAIN

That would be the Memorial Day-to-Labor Day logo. Before and after that:

GAME CALLED

DUE TO SNOW

We have the next breakout comedy star in our midst, folks.

Thanks, folks, I'll be back at 10 o'clock. And don't forget the prime rib at the buffet!
