We are falling behind under the deluge of entries. Very exciting to see all this excitement over the Hometown League, but that means patience my amigos. Patience! We’re at a little over 3 weeks to get to your entries. Ugh, I know. Patience! And thanks!
Doug! Dirty! You can smell this guy through the screen. I love that. I love the idea of two things crossed in his beard. It’s a new way to do the whole crossed bats(Crossed whatever, really.) trope. While I like the character and the story telling elements I think it needs a stronger composition. What about making the fish and the stick more pronounced? I think you can come up with something more fun than a stick. What about a broom stick/stickball bat? Great start, keep trucking.
Phil! This is great. I think this would make such a cool logo for teams to advertise day games to office workers. I’m not sure if it’s the best hat logo though. I think that your alternate mark up there might be a better bet. Or maybe a mashup of the 2 logos?
Martin! Oh man this is cool. I really think your on to something here. I like you to make a few changes for me. I want you to look at retro Native American-inspired sports logos. I think giving this guy a vintage feel would be a great asset. And I’d like for you to make the human to wolf head proportions lean more towards the wolf. Right now it leans more towards the dude. Really amazing stuff. I think with the right amount of tweaking this guy could be a juggernaut.
Jesus! Badass Roster my man. I really love how you’ve rendered him. I think he needs something else to make him pop though. What about another storytelling element like a snake in his mouth or maybe crossed pitchforks? What about not adding a new element and giving us a few more roster colors added to his neck and crown. There are some colorful rosters out there and I think, done correctly, a bunch of colors could give this guys a Blackhawks vibe. Great work!
Jake! Awesome idea. I love the detail and authenticity that you’ve given this design. I’d really like you to add something to this guys to give him a little more of a logo real and less of an illustration feel. Maybe a crest vibe could be a cool direction. Or maybe a creature’s eyes or claw creeping out of the box. Keep it mysterious though. Great stuff. You’ve got a lot to work with here. Go forth!
