Tennessee Titans Wordmark

Recommended Posts

As some of you know, I've been working on putting some of my concepts into Madden 08 for my franchise mode. My favorite team being the Titans, I had a lot of work on and off the field to bring them back to respectability.

Last month, I posted my uniforms on this forum, and was really proud of the way they looked. As I began to update the files around the stadium to match my new logo and new uniforms, I realized that the current Titans wordmark looked incredibly out of place in my endzones. All the sharp angular letters simply don't fit with my roundel logo, AFL era round numbers, and ancient greek theme. I set out to make a suitable wordmark, which has always been a weakness of mine when it comes to creating team identities.

Inspired by the newer, simpler, modern style of wordmarks used by NFL teams today, I kept it minimalist.

Thoughts or critiques? Should this be restricted just to the endzones and stadium walls, or should the TITANS text make an appearance under the uniform collars?

love the old-school feel of the wordmark.

i'm thinkin you need to use the same styling as TITANS in the uniform numerals, too. also, the beveling should be used in the wordmark, or taken out of the helmet T to keep it all consistent.

I think the "A" needs the line, but other than that, it looks great

I would prefer a wordmark to be based of the T sword on the helmet.

I just get a Memphis Grizzlies vibe with this one.

That helmet logo looks weird without the flames, but I understand why you got rid of it. How about using a wing instead?

i tried wings, actually... but it just felt too derivative of the flames. like i didn't have the NFL license and had to make a close-but-not-quite titans logo.

it struck me that only the steelers had a circular helmet logo in the nfl, and even that is only on one side. i felt like a straight adaptation of an ancient greek shield would probably be my best bet. circular logo on a round piece of equipment, fitting in with my rounded numberals... just felt like a perfect fit to me.

my inspiration:

Regarding the word,ark, the serif on the I is out of place. Either remove it or make all the letters serif. Also, the A looks unfinished without the middle line running through it.

I like the logo & think it looks more recognizable as shield than the current one does.

Maybe get rid the serif on the I. I like the A the way it is because it gives it a greek feel and ties in perfectly with your logo.

Absolutely LOVE the use of the Oilers old number font.

I do like that wordmark and and the "A" doesn't bother me at all, but I think you should add one more star to be consistent with the logo. Maybe right over the middle of Tennessee.

This is so much better than what they have now. I would buy each one of these jerseys in a heartbeat. Maybe throw the wordmark below the collar and they'd be perfect.
