USL Pro crests: Harrisburg City and Sacramento now up

Here's a second badge, this time for Charleston. I think they have the best crest in the league, but this is a streamlined version.

I updated the cannons slightly, and changed the shape of the badge to look a bit more 'military'. I struggled with where to place the wordmark, so any help there would be appreciated.

I think this is a good start, but is going to need some work.

- What's with the ram's-horn-looking bits at the top? They don't seem to fit the overall aesthetic at all.

- I like the breaking of the standard shield shape at the bottom. The badge looks like it could use a bit more yellow, though; perhaps two more (partial?) stripes on the far outside before a black outline?

- The bubble outlines on the individual letters don't look good. I know it's a bit cliche to have a bar at the top with the name, but I think you might consider having a black bar with the team name in it as part of the afore-mentioned outline.

- I also think having "Battery" on the crest is important, even if you de-emphasize it as compared to "Charleston".

- I'm also not the biggest fan of that font; it's like it's trying to be smooth and hard at the same time.

That's a downgrade in a lot of ways, especially the colors. I'd go more of a true green; maybe not as light as a kelly green, but not nearly as deep as what you have there.

The font change is disappointing, no matter how much I like Tertre.

I like the idea of the stripes at the bottom, but it seems to make everything very cluttered/busy in that area. The crest shape would look great if you truncated it on the top line of that area (and filled in the chunk out of the right side).

Any better here Mockba?

With the OC Blues updating their crest I thought I'd try my hand at them next.

Here is what they updated to:

10359540_901663903188832_194875845139087

And here is what I've come up with. It's completely incomplete, so help me out with what you think it needs and where.

The new one (as in the one you made) is looking great in that: 1. You simplified the color palette while 2. staying true to the form of their previous logos and 3. utilized certain materials in the logo package in a very clever matter (the soccer ball sun and the tree integrating into the E). As you said, this isn't the complete identity so there isn't much to critique except the tree into the E looks forced and maybe the addition of white would help liven what you already have. Great job
