    Here is my attempt at designing a new logo. Basically I took features off of the four previous logos and combined them into a new one. Since most people seem to want the throwback uni's or a similar concept, that's what I used for the premise.

    I used the idea of the Dolphin going half-way through the sunburst from the first logo, the Dolphin design from the second logo, the tail and the "M" on the helmet from the third logo and the helmet from the current logo. I cleaned up the Dolphin and elongated it a bit. I put in the helmet from the current logo and put the different "M" on it. I then swapped the tail to the third logo tail. The sunburst is something I designed from scratch, basically mimicking the old school sunburst. I went with the aqua and a deep coral coloring and took out the navy and went with a grey facemask for the helmet.

    Here are the uniform designs. They are also very old school and seem to be in line with what most people want to see.

    Just me taking a shot at it since everyone else has. If you like it, great. If not, no problem. It's all subjective.


    I decided to put this in the main thread vs the Graphics thread because the graphics thread just doesn't get nowhere near the traffic and views that the main thread does.

    I think we could do a little better with the logo, but your uniform design is actually legit.

    It's modern but sleek. Not like a bunch of those clown outfit Oregon-wannabe train wrecks.

    Unis look good. The logo doesn't distinguish itself from the old school ones enough (not that's it's a bad thing).

    I agree, the logo should be tweaked to the previous logo but I love what you did with the unis. Bravo sir!

    My favorites are the all-whites, #10 from the top down. Love them.

    Wasn't the new logo going to be an "updated" version of the current one? Just saying...

    What is with everyone's obsession with the old logo?

    This is the best logo design I have seen bar none. I am sick of all the cartoonish designs people submit. I love the position of the Dolphin in the sun. Well done! Simply the best I have seen.

    Nice effort, good work. That color shade is a little bluer than I like, but that is just my taste.

    I think the Dolphin needs to be updated a bit more. Like the lines need to edged up or whatever you call it << Not an artist :lol:


    But good job :up:

    Thanks everyone for your input on these. Just something I've been messing around with for awhile. The unis I just did in the last couple of days so that's why they don't look as professional as some of the other mockups floating around. I don't have the software to do the Nike looking uniform mockups but I am going to try to make these look a little better.

    I totally understand if you're more into the modern looking logos/unis then these more than likely won't be to your taste, but that's cool. Everyone has their own ideas and preferences for what they'd like to see for the new logo/unis, this is just my own.
