Marlins Logo (UPDATE)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, haven't posted in a while. So as we all know the Marlins will be moving into their new retractable-roof ball park in a couple of years and the organization is overhauling their logo set. So here is a logo that i keep sketching. Sorry it's not a very clean computer graphic like some of you can make, I'm not very good with digital design but i can draw. Basically what i tried to do is base this off of the marlins current logo but modify the dorsal fin and instead of having a full body just the head. I also have changed the teal to a dark blue. I came up with the color because it is more accurate to what a marlin looks like and it is the same color as the seats in the stadium renderings. So tell me what you think, C&C is appreciated! Thanks guys.Picture186.jpg

Alright! you guys asked for it and here it is! added up an element to the logo that i've messed with before, inserting the "miami" into the dorsal fin. I also switched the way it is facing, changed the dark blue to teal, and tried to make the marlin "fiercer" again any more comments are appreciated! Thanks!

This looks really nice, actually, but I'm too caught up with the teal the Marlins have now. Also, could you make it a little fiercer?

So fiercer like with the eyes perhaps? I also really like what the marlins have now but unfortunately it sounds like it is going to be changed.

This thing has legs. :P Seriously though, with some cleaning up and some 'fierceness' added this could become a great logo. Im excited to follow the progress of this. Great start!

I actually really like this idea. I agree on the fierceness point others have brought up. This has the same taxidermist mount, lifeless eye syndrome that the current logos have.... granted it's hard to notice considering these days the only place you'll see a Marlins logo with an actual marlin in it is on the team's caps. Trust me, I know, I work for the team in the creative services department and we can't use the primary logo or the "F" on anything because they signify Florida as opposed to Miami. Plus we can't use any significant amount of teal. It's gonna change unless the fans speak up and do something about it, but you didn't hear that from me.... PLEASE SPEAK UP FELLOW TEAL LOVING MARLINS FANS OUT THERE! *ahem*

Dream come true working for the team but struggling to live with the maddening branding dictates handed down from the owner lol.

Anyway, I'd play with the eye as mentioned, make it a bit more menacing, and I'd remove the side fin(it wouldn't be that high up on the body). Also the dorsal fin looks a bit too curved to me. And if possible I'd love to see a teal version :D

Great concept. I just noticed this has a little bit of a subliminal diamond shape too, which is good for baseball.

This is nice. Yeah, I think adding a little toughness to the eyes would help top this off. I also think the shape of the dorsal fin could be worked on a little. Good stuff!

Alright, Thank you for your suggestions and i will find some time to make those changes. And i would love to make a teal version. I also love the teal, i just figured this might be a realistic color for the up coming change. Again thanks guys really appreciate it!

I thought you already had an amazing Marlins concept before. AMAZING LOGO HERE! Why downgrade that? <_<

Thank you for the compliment! Well you bring up a good point. Maybe i could clean that logo up a bit and have this logo as a secondary type?

Very cool, very good. I could see it being the center of a stylized "M"

Nice, update, definately liking the hidden 'MIAMI' in the fin. The mouth looks extremely awkward, though, the perspective is definately off.

Nice update. The only thing you need to do to top it off is finish the eye. If you give it a thicker line than just the pencil line that's there, this is just about done.

Love the actual cut and pasting.

Fish looks GREAT but that M is somewhat amateurish, like a teenage girl's doodling. I think it needs straighter lines.

I like it. I like where the marlin intertwines with the M.

Another idea would have the bottom fin of the Marlin but the v shape in the top of the M.

Try putting it in the middle of the V of the M. With the M in front, either straight up and down or slightly to the right.
