Clearwater Tornadoes Baseball Concept

Recommended Posts

Here is my concept for my old high school baseball team, the Clearwater High School Tornadoes, I'm planning on a whole school re-design and these are the three primary logos.

Tell me what you guys think about the logos and uniform combos.

Nice! I went to Palm harbor. I'm thinking a red cap on the grey would be better. Maybe a matching word mark with the cap logo. Still cool seeing a concept that's close to home.

try to touch up on the primary, it looks messy. Cool concept though!

Yeah, I was toying with that but all through high school we had a grey/red cap and I didn't want to erase it entirely. Would be a great look though, I agree.

Clearwater student? I go to Seminole. Interesting look. Have always respected your logo.

former clearwater student, but I still do all of the t-shirts, program covers, posters, etc. for the baseball team

I would upturn the arms of the tornado, like it is showing its biceps, and add an outline to make it stand out. And stick to the grey cap with the red bill for the grey uniform.

Always wondered why they aren't the Waterspouts. Just sayin'...

What's funny too is that in many fonts, the 'r' and 'n' in "Tornadoes" runs together and at first glance looks like "tomatoes."

I used to live in Tarpon Springs but that was long before any of you were born. Go Spongers!

Yeah Tornadoes has nothing to do with Clearwater, kind of just a generic HS name. It's funny though a tornado actually did come through Clearwater in the 1990s and tore the gym & auditorium apart. So ironically, now the name kind of fits.

Maybe I'll have to do a Tarpon Springs concept next, I've always liked the Spongers name & logo.

With such a cool name, Spongers never really have had a good logo that represents the sponging community down there. I'd love to see somebody take on the sponger name with a modernize logo.

I like the logo with the sponger head, it just looks a little dated. maybe ill try to modernize that a little bit next. Spongers is one of the best high school names, one of the few that actually represnets an area like a college or pro team

I think the whole thing looks great, save the primary logo. It is very hard to draw/render tornadoes, so I can live with it.

love these concepts, but how do you create them? just getting into this so I'm new to how you design concept logos.

I'm a poor college student so I do everything with GIMP. It's a free image manipulation program on the web and its very easy to learn and use. Most of these guys use Illustrator or Photoshop, they are a lot better for logo creation. Check out some of the other threads for more information. It's fun to do once you get good at it

Thanks, I appreciate it! The primary is actually my favorite part. clearwater high has had a cartoon tornado man for a long time now, and I like it a lot better than some of the more realistic tornado logos I've seen. But to each his own
