I took a look at average MiLB attendance figures for this past season, 7 out of the bottom 10 have the same names as MLB teams, two of the bottom four being the Blue Jays.  Granted they are all in the low level leagues, but they don't generate any excitement.

To be fair, one of those bottom 4 was the Dunedin Blue Jays.  They were forced to play in a municipal high school stadium due to primary stadium renovations, so their 2019 numbers are low for a reason.

Now, with all that said, and in accordance with several previously stated observations of recent Brandiose work, well...

...Yeah I can definitely see a certain recurring theme or two here--most notably, the side smirk/grimacing teeth thing, which I'm guessing at this point must well be an unstated Brandiose trademark, not unlike Nike's opposing-cornered jersey number thing. 


I don’t have the technological wherewithal to pull it off, but someone REALLY needs to do a Brandiose logo and name randomizer picking from a selection in each category: grimace/smirk (grimasmirk?), ornate eyes, a cylindrical bat-shaped object, a creature/object to anthropomorphize, and an adjective.

The new jersey is a simplified version of one the team wore last year. The 2020 version removes piping from the neck and buttons so that the Stripers logo is set against the navy pinstripes. (The piping was not removed altogether, though—it’s still there around the sleeves.) The new jerseys feature an Atlanta Braves created by the Braves, who own the club.

 

:blink:

 

Might want to put in that missing word.

The new hats are downgrades, and the patch is pretty bad.

 

The original navy hat with the fish is their best one.

I modified this quote to show two of the latest pieces from Brandiose—the Paddleheads and Trash Pandas— and their relatively old Iron Pigs logo. Sure, they share some similarities, but Iron Pigs feels stripped back compared to the others. Bigger elements, easier to render in embroidery and small sizes. Plus Iron Pigs was a pretty clever play on pig iron mined in the region. Paddleheads, Trash Pandas, Sod Poodles, Vibes, etc. are harder to justify.

Look at their older Clearwater Threshers work, too. Clean.


Brandiose is extremely talented but has become an almost inevitable parody of itself.

Time out--how old is this photo? I recognize some of the names in that caption--in particular Jack McKeon, who I presume is the same free- spirited, fun-loving, stogie-bitin' Jack McKeon who skippered the three-headed-monster-led '03 Florida Marlins past the Yankees for the World Series title?!

 

 

 

1956.  McKeon managed the Missoula Timberjacks from 1956-1958.  Jim Kaat was on his 1958 team.

Old tweet, but the MILB's Copa de la Diversion uniforms will roll out tomorrow. I assume most teams will unveil tomorrow but some may trickle in later once they receive actual inventory of uniforms and caps.

Wichita Baseball 2020 is now... the Wichita Wind Surge.

"Symbol of aspiration, free spirit, and a daring determined attitude - harnessing the wind and surging forward. Our core colors, navy blue and red, are deeply rooted in the culture of baseball. They are also found in Wichita's beloved flag. Sky blue pays tribute to Kansas' wide open prairie skies, which have inspired innovators and dreamers to soar to new heights from time immemorial. Yellow gold is the color of sunflowers, wheat, and summer sunsets - all iconic identifiers of our region. We are surging forward with new vibrancy, a new energy, and a fierce sense of purpose. We are the Wichita Wind Surge."

The name is horrible. That said, the primary mark is a thing of beauty.

When Todd Radom can't salvage your team's name, you've really picked a stinker.

"Wind Surge" is bad, but I love the logo set. Between them and the Nashville Sounds? There might be hope for minor league ball outside of the Brandiose Borg Cube after all.

I kinda wish they would've chosen the Wichita Windsox (with a city-flag-patterned windsock as their logo).

Drop the Surge and Wichita Wind would be good. Logo is great. I love that road cap.

This is all kinds of wrong.  First of all IT'S BLUE AND RED!!! AGAIN!!! MAKE IT STOP!!! 😡

 

The name sounds like a girls soccer team.

 

The wordmark looks like the wordmark for the Jumbo Shrimp.

 

And what's the significance of the horse?  Is it wind power or horse power?

I feel like they just have a dart board and throw darts to see what two names to put together.
