Wolverine 2.0

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry, but I have to say this. The way you tried to use the helmet stripe design on his fur looks like a pot leaf right in the middle of his head. I love the logo in every way except for the fact that I can't seem to see anything other than a marijuana leaf.

Pretty good idea, what with the actual wolverine, I mean. Michigan needs something like that. A little on the bushy and unnatural side though.

Count me as another one who thinks this logo looks amazing.

And even with JJHoser pointing it out, I don't see pot here.

I really like it for the most part but to me some of the detail and lines around the mouth could be fine tuned. I also feel the trend of using a forced teeth scowl is slowly fading in place of more natural frown as shown in your real photo, but I can't blame you since wolverines do have a nasty set of teeth.

Haha, I guess it takes someone from Colorado to notice that off the bat. J/k'ing but now that you mention it, I can definitely see what you're saying. I still see the helmet design homage first though. Overall I like the rough feel the logo has. It's almost retro. Better than some other modern logos that feel too smooth and processed for my tastes.

Haha well I personally hate pot and I live a straightedge life, but it is everywhere I turn here so I got used to the shape of a pot leaf. lol

Dude this is so genius. Like i genuinely wish i would've come up with it.

Have you considered going all the way to the top with the stripes?

And is it supposed to look retro with the angles not being extra sharp/symmetrical?

Either way, awesome job.

This is really, really excellent, Hettinger, really good and original. You've got a number of retro-style graphics stocked away that you should give this kind of attention to and post them here.

I second this.

I really like this logo. Good work. Nothing unnecessarily condescending from me. ;)

I feel like, somehow, putting in the block M would be a keeping true to their tradition, and having that tie in would be perfect, or make it go terribly, terribly wrong.

Marijuana leafs have 7 points. It actually looks more like a buckeye leaf or Japanese maple leaf.
