Updated Fantasy football logos


WideRight

Recommended Posts

I design most of the logos for the fantasy football league I have been in since 1986. We try to maintain a level of realism by requiring teams be in large markets and have reasonable names (not the usual bad pun names most leagues seem to have).

Well, for several years many of our teams have had logos based on (copied from) real sports logos or other sources (Green Arrow logo, for example) but I wanted to fix this, so I have gone team by team and eliminated the borrowed logos, creating new logos for each team.

First up, my own team, the Charlotte Knights

Primary

Secondary, with a reference to the year of the team founding and our 6 championships.

Next up is one of the Central Division's toughest teams, the Memphis Rebels. Their former logo was based on the Ottawa Renegades. I went a totally different way with the new one, opting for a 'flag waving" rebellion to remove a bit of the "confederate" element from the brand of the team.

No complaints except for the Memphis Rebels wordmark. Majority of it looks faded except for the bottom part of the outline and the word "MEMPHIS". I think Memphis has the better Primary but that Charlotte alt is fantastic. Great work

Gosh, this is awesome. I absolutely love the Charlotte bursting stripes helmet and wish that were a real team.

...I'm starting to wonder if I could commission you to do my own team... (And yes, I have a serious name for mine. I've done uniforms and a basic logo, but this stuff is so good...)

A further, minor suggestion: save as PNG. That way the backgrounds are transparent and the artifacts don't show up. It's cleaner.

Two more CFFL Teams with original logos.

First up, the Kansas Twisters, owned by a Dolphins fan and relocated from Jacksonville (via Columbus, OH). I say this so that you might understand why a team based in Kansas has Aqua & Orange as its color scheme.

And the Las Vegas Gamblers. The old primary logo was a copy of the San Antonio Texans from the CFL's short-lived US expansion. Used to have the LV logo as a secondary, moved it to primary and added the new poker chip secondary logo.

Two more brands today. We are going to go with the two franchises which have never relocated or been renamed since their birth in 1986.

The Orlando Panthers.

And, yes, there is some borrowing in Oakland, from the Tennessee Titans (Flames) and New Orleans VooDoo (Skull), but I like it so much that I just cannot get myself to redo it.

Ah the Continental Fantasy Football League. Louisville Kings. Salt Lake City Bards and the Vrahoritis Cup. I always wondered what happened to you guys. Used to love reading your stuff online!
