Our new look

I thought that it would be really cool, if I made every part of my design umbrella have similar designs. I was looking to make a logo for myself that I could brand my logos, and make a portfolio(which I linked!) So a few days after I made the M logo, I realized how much better I could make Sports Logo Spot, and Stadia Arcadia look, especially if they were the same look.

I knew I could update Stadia easy, I would make a logo of an arena, like the old logo. I did that, loved it, then went to work on this blog's new logo. I settled on a pencil, reworked it to make it perfect, and finished. Then I wanted to make icons for them for the sidebar. I made a facebook one for the page, then I was making my last one, the one to my twitter.

Inkscape crashed.

I had to recreate every stupid logo. So I made these all twice! So that's a back story, I like it, but I'd love to get some reader(s)...(?) reactions.

What I've been up to!

So if you didn't know yet, I'm a senior in high school. The place I want to go to is Florida State, too bad I hate their current set. I would suck it up for a good education, but c'mon! Chief Osceola is pretty bad if you look at it. Since about Thanksgiving, I've been working on this logo. 

 I think an update is something they should look into, so I can buy many things with the logo on it. Personally, I think the Nike logos they made are better. So I envisioned a logo, which will be an alternate, and wanted to do a rebrand. I chose the current garnet, black, and a color halfway between Vegas gold, and Predator yellow. They have many different colors, and I wanted one set scheme. The logo I was most pleased with was Chief Osceola. He needed a facelift, because the current is just cluttered. I gave it facial features, like a jaw line, and nostrils. Anything to make it more person like. The feather is an actual feather too. I tilted the head down on my first update to make it seem as if he's charging in an ambush, or something less racist.

 So I'm still working, but I wanted more than one post this month.

Steve Yzerman's NHL: Dallas

Dallas Stars 
I really like their current logo, but I do think it is slightly outdated. That is what I wanted to do, update and simplify. Obviously an all green look would look great, and be a faux throwback to the North Stars, while the logo breaks away from that. 

 Just messing with the current, I made the gold part green, and the green part white. it actually looked real nice. Kind of what I was looking for, simplicity in the star. This is the first one that will actually be able to work in green and white. They don't have a good alternate, so since they're the only team in Texas, they get a Texas outline. The other alt logo is a circle logo which just kind of ties together all of the logos.

I love when jerseys don't have hem stripes while their sleeves do. The jersey looks really nice in my opinion. I wanted to do that sometime, and figured Dallas was a good opportunity since they don't have them now. Pretty simple, I guess. Monochrome green with the same font on the script.

Still planning on doing more.
