Seattle Seahawks New Logo?

Recommended Posts

Everyone hates monochrome and I do too, but Seattle had something unique going with the slate-blue monochrome. Took me years to come around on it, but it worked for them somehow.

I don't out-and-out hate monochrome; I just think it works much better in certain applications.

I guess I just hate it when it gets thrown together midseason and isn't designed that way. I've been saying for years that the Ravens belong in head-to-toe black.

Lots of speculation but here is, from what I can gather, all we know 100% for sure. Or at least what's been shown in public to date. Interesting that there is so much green in the shoes and gloves and then so little in the actual logo. Wonder what Nike is doing.

There are touches of green on the uniform.

Is anyone who's seen the uniforms comfortable giving even a cursory description of what this helmet stripe looks like? That is the most fascinating element to me. It seems like a huge departure.

Does it fit in with the horizontal striping of the logo? It seems like both stripes would counter one another and look awkward.

I just keep imagining some kind of totem pole stripe coming out of the front of the helmet and ending about 1/3 of the way to the back.

By that "clue" I would assume it's similar to the current set's use of green. Minimal but still represented?

Slap a Navy Blue facemask on the helmets, the current Seahawks wordmark just below the collar on the jerseys (in White on the home, Navy Blue on the away), and render the numbers in a custom font based upon the wordmark, and I would wholeheartedly support either of these looks. Outstanding work!

The masks are navy blue. I guess I need to tone down the lighting effects next time. ^_^

And...for whatever reason, I never bothered to trace the Seahawks' wordmarks back when I assembled my collection of NFL logos. Considering I've been able to draft number sets from other proprietary script marks in the past, I don't doubt I'd be able to do it here--but if I do it, they're appearing as one color, though. Think it'd be best to keep it simple.

FAKE EDIT: Question for the fontologists...

...after examining this script, might it be wise to assume this was based on Wide Latin or a similar typeface, or at least had some Wide latin mixed into whatever it is based on?

Love the green stripe version but doubt it will look this way since the new logo uses a grey, not green, stripe. Looks great though.

Not too sure about another stripe in addition to the wrap around hawk but I guess we'll see how it looks.

So, a very thin stripe with some kind of text/design element.

Since the logo is supposed to represent the head of a seahawk sticking out from a totem pole (and thus why it isn't really a two headed hawk, just a head sticking out of both sides of the pole), I assume the base of the pole will be at the back of the helmet, and will extend forward for some length. Not a normal helmet stripe at all.

Hmmmmm totem pole/feather design stripe.......... :grin:

I figured, just having a hard time picturing that....

It will be unique, that is for sure.
