A11FL logo entries?


WideRight

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been following the branding competition for the proposed Spring football league A11FL (based on the A11 offense). They say they will be playing in Spring 2015 and apparently they have sought out some good designers to compete for the 8 starting franchise brands.

They even bought the rights to most of the old USFL names (stealing them out from under the noses of the other proposed 2015 new league, a new USFL. That had to sting a little.)

Some really good work and I think a few regulars from these boards.

Here's some from Fraser Davidson that "ended up on the cutting room floor" unfortunately.

Pretty solid for a start up league to actually seek out good branding for teams. They have a pretty nice website too, not to mention an overall interesting concept.

Edit: my favorite of the proposed marks

Thanks, WideRight! I was beginning to think I was the only one who noticed these! I've seen some on different sites as well, like Behance. Some of the Michigan Panthers concepts were pushing the edge of infringement on Carolina's logo. I really like the LA Bombers helmet logo based on the old San Antonio Wings logo. The Oklahoma Herd logos could work well for a Jacksonville revamping. I've only seen one Invaders concept that was really tolerable but all of them aren't in Oakland colors or even the original Bay Area Invaders colors. Someone had a great Birmingham concept that I can't find anymore.

Check out the new USFL website. They both have remarkably similar player graphics.

I think I gave y'all some incomplete info. Better to go to the US patent and trademark office website and enter the names of the original USFL teams. All but a few are owned by A11. The domains for the original teams belong to someone else.

I haven't contacted anyone in A11....and since I haven't been writing articles for a while, any sources I could have used aren't in contact with me. If I go by one statement from this morning, it would lead me to believe we may have another UFL situation(my words, not ones used in the email). My guess....Generals, Bandits, Panthers, Swarm and Stars will be the east. Invaders, Express/Bombers, Wranglers and two transplants/original teams in the west. Akron could still be in play in 2015 but this year they have chosen a different road. San Diego was one of the original USFL franchises along with San Francisco but ownership issues moved them to other locations.

I did some digging and found that the directors of the A11FL had taken copyrights out on nicknames from several locations. Like, for instance, Birmingham Stallions (obvious reasons) and also the Louisville Stallions (youth hockey league) like they are trying to lock up the stallions name.

I'd be willing to bet quite a few Generals TMs have been snapped up as well. That's probably their stratagy. They'll try to place a team in the original cities and if they can't or the team doesn't make it, they have an automatic backup location....if they are going the single entity route.

They have taken NY and NJ generals both. So yeah I think you are right.
