Miami Tropics

Recommended Posts

Back in September I posted a concept of the Miami Tropics... well I decided to try and update it a little. Trying to get back into things...

The primary/wordmark/numbers all look really good. I especially like the dark green hiding subtly under the black wordmark.

On the other hand, your "T" logo, which I imagine is the cap logo, looks a bit disjointed. The warning flags seem to sit randomly atop the letter, as opposed to being attached or layered, etc. I'm not exactly sure how the two items are supposed to fit together here.

I would place the palm tree over the T, and attach the flags to it. It would add more flow.

Solid. Except you have a flowing logo with a clunky wordmark. The wordmark doesn't match with the logo and feels out of place, like it's just plopped down there.

this is very cool! I don't know what to make of it. It kind of doesn't lean towards a sports logo to me, for some reason...but I can't put my finger on it. Something about the wordmark. Maybe it's too small, or needs to kind of overlap the entire logo?

I think Tropics is a solid nickname for a warm state.

The problem that seems to really be bothering me is the warning flags. They look weird for some reasons. Any ideas why?

I think that its because they kind of look thrown on there. I really like everything else, but I'm not sure how those flags could work.

Do you think they should be taken out of the Primary logo, and used as a secondary logo?

Yeah but then youd have to add something to the primary.

Any chance you would be willing to take a similar stab for my Honolulu Sun Rays? Its for MLB2K10 pc game?

So is this going to be a part of your attempted baseball league concept? I'd really love to see that; fantasy leagues are my favourite kind of concept.

Anyhoo, are you planning on designing uniforms to go along with the logos (which are fabulous, by the way).

At first glace I thought the warning flags on the tree were actually "Angry Eyes" on the baseball. It took me a second to register what it was -- even though I saw the original concept.

I think you need some negative space above and below the warning flags. The top just flows into the palm tree and the bottom gets wrapped into the "banner" portion of the words.

If you put a little space in between I think you would set apart the flags more and make them a little more prominent. Would help "clean up" the logo a bit, too.

I doubt it. Take a look at the three leaves to the far right they are exactly the same in both logos. It's more likely he used the all star image as a reference......or....
