Majestic has logo on wrong sleeve on Coco Crisp’s jersey

The Majestic logo is supposed to be on the left sleeve, but it found its way on Coco Crisp’s right sleeve last night.

Majestic has a new logo but most (if not all) of the jerseys worn this regular season feature the old logo. It must mean that they are using up their old inventory of blank jerseys to make the new sets this year before implementing the new logo.

But how odd to see the logo on the wrong sleeve. I wonder how that happened.

Roberto Luongo steals a concept design and doesn’t compensate artist for it

In all honesty, they probably didn’t know it and didn’t think much of it. But now that we know who created it and that he never got compensation, what is the best approach? It’s up to the artist on what they want to see with it, but I do wonder how many more of these cases happen that we just don’t pick up.

Goalie masks are unique in a way because they aren’t required to put just the team logos on it. They can be creative and artists can put whatever they want to the mask. In fact, sometimes the mask has nothing to do with the team, but the design reflects the player.

So with this, it might open up a new way of artist and players in approach to the goalie mask designs. These cases are rare so we might not see it much. But when it does happen, I hope the artist is contacted and properly compensated. They deserve that at least.

Mark Schlereth is a hater for hating on RGIII’s logo

This was a response from Mark Schlereth to Robert Griffin III’s new Adidas logo.

I don’t know what his deal is, but I don’t understand why he’s hating. Adidas created the logo for Griffin. In fact, numerous companies create logos for their athletes. Tom Brady has one. Kobe Bryant has one. Allen Iverson has one. Tiger Woods has one.

How come he doesn’t go after them or the company that makes the logo?

Of course this comes with the territory that with a guy with that big of a name, anything he does generates attention? Was it his doing or Adidas? I don’t know. But this is how it is in this social world. It’s about self-promotion. People will just hate on it.

Was it the best? It’s hard to say. But to rub Super Bowl rings like that? Come on, Schlereth. Don’t be a hater.

Newly signed Dolphins OT Branden Albert doesn’t know what his team’s logo looks like

Free agent tackle Branden Albert just signed a multi-year deal with the Dolphins. With his excitement, he tweeted this.

As noted by people on Twitter, that is the old Dolphins logo. Albert took notice and updated his tweet with a new photo of the Dolphins logo.

But sadly, he still got it wrong.

Reebok’s brand had to change after what they’ve been through

As noted over the weekend, Reebok has undergone a new logo and a new direction. They’re focusing their efforts on the cross-fit part of athletics and it’s a good move since that is where they can truly excel.

But their change wasn’t a surprise. In fact, we saw it coming from some time now.

Asymmetry is the direction Nike is going with their NFL uniforms

Since taking over in 2012, Nike has overhauled the uniforms of five teams. Of those five, four of them have asymmetrical design elements.

The definition of symmetry, in terms of uniform design, is that if one side of the uniform is a certain designed a certain way, the opposite side should feature the same element. Asymmetry is one both sides don’t match.

Team wordmark on left shoulder, not on the right.

Reebok’s new brand mark works with their new direction

Reebok has now shifted their focus on fitness as a company. Since they no longer outfit the NFL and their presence in the NHL isn’t that recognized, they decided to add a new brand identity.

This works since they have been working in providing workout shoes for training, running and all other fitness activities in their latest releases. It is a simple brand but it is executed well.

I am a Reebok fan and I own several running shoes from them. Their produce is good and I enjoy it. I would like to see what their designs are now going forward. They may not be as big in the sports world now, but the average Joe can still use their products for their own personal fitness. And that’s fine with me.

When football and hockey collide, you get this

I am digging this. The design is very accurate to what a Steelers helmet looks like. Aside from the Penguins logo, this is spot on.

Buccaneers unveil new and enhanced logo and helmet

New Buccaneers logo.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers unveiled their new helmet, their first helmet design change since 1997. Here are the differences.

Here are the changes and additions.

  • The logo is simplified with new skull. The swords and football is still there, but it just seems like a change that wasn’t necessary. Flag is still tattered. The original logo was just fine as is. I do not like the absence of red from the handle of the sword.
  • The wordmark is not good to me. Their original one was nice and this simplified version takes away the aggression of the identity.

Why is the logo that big?

Super Bowl XLIX logo for next year is pretty much what you expected

For 44 years, the Super Bowl logo has been a unique design annually. The design reflected the host city or the design was a perfect embodiment of the country. But since the 2010 season, the NFL has decided to go with a generic logo template.

As you can see, the Super Bowl logo for next season will be under that same design.

The following year is Super Bowl L, which might be a problem under this template. The L would stick out at the bottom and it won’t look good. Will the NFL go back to unique designs or stick with this? Only time will tell.
