I decided to simplify the logo, focusing on the lion and castle elements as well as removing a lot of the clutter from the uniforms. The alt is based on the original colours of the club before switching to cherry/white.
Hey mate.. Just noticed alot of your designs of late have been bars/hooped based designs. Obviously this is a style you like, but I am a fan of your early work where you had more free-styled designs. Also would you ever think about running a comp with with the winning design being placed into your amazing template?
Yeah, I’ve been going with the old styled jerseys lately as they tend to have more longevity. Plus the teams I’ve worked on recently in the ESL have pretty long histories in traditional designs. I might try something different for the alternate jerseys of some teams though.
I might look at allowing submissions for something like the four nations or NRL Allstar match to put onto the template; the only issue might be adapting the design to the template if it were a raster.
Yep, that’s a valid point about the old styled jerseys having that appeal and also a good idea to mix it up with the alternative jersey..
Yeah great idea about the 4 Nations or NRL All-Stars jerseys, as they were shocking last year!! Maybe limit the comp to vector artwork?
I really really like the logo. Looks classy and simple yet captures the main elements.
Most sports clubs that use their cities crest as the basis of their logo are stylised and evolve over time… but not Wigan.
You are right, they really don’t need all the heraldric symbols there, just the basics.
Gaz what is that number font you have used ? It looks very smooth.
Just wondering if you have a better pic of the logo. Good work by the way mate.
