    Default Design the new Colts secondary logo

    http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dl...TS03/803270454

    This is interesting...with the Colts having a "classic" logo I'm surprised they would even design a secondary. Kinda cool however, if anyone has photoshop skills on this board they should get on it, it would be cool to have a PD member win this.

    If they're serious about adopting it as a secondary logo, shouldn't the winner get more than $1,000? Think of all the merchandise and advertising that logo could/would wind up on? Seems more valuable than $1,000.

    Don't forget the pair of lower level season tickets. Do they have a secondary logo now since it says new horse logo?

    Finalists have been announced; http://www.colts.com/sub.cfm?page=pr...dynamic&id=227

    To be honest I'm not too keen on any of them, #5's not bad.

    Ew.

    What was wrong with the horseshoe?

    #2 is the only one that's decent. If only it were actually Colts' colors.

    Are some of the designers color blind? 4 and 5 are the only ones that come close to matching the Colts shade of blue.

    I think 5 will be good if they fix up the black. Two is good, but I don't know about it coming toward me like that. I would have liked to see his design sideways.

    I really like the job you did, Rel.

    In fact, it would be my favourite out of the 5 finalists. Since yours was not chosen, I would go with the second one.

    I don't know much about graphic design, and do not claim to be an artist by any stretch of the imagination. But...aren't the third and fourth ones absolutely terrible? Especially the fourth.

    The ones they pick suck pretty bad and they remind me of the first Minnesota Timberwolves logo for some reason.

    REL yours should have at least been nominated in the last five.

    Good work, Rel. And you're absolutely right about using blue and white ONLY as well as using SHAPE to define the figure instead of LINE. Design 101, and you nailed it.

    What the heck are they doing allowing entries with new color schemes and line art? Where's the pull-hair smiley when I need it?

    Wish I would have known about this, I would have submitted something. In a way, I'm glad I didn't because I just would have gotten mad about the finalists.

    Of the finalists, I suppose my favorite would be #2, but it needs a little work.

    I think the horse at Mile HIgh stadium would be more than a little upset if we chose number 3. They all suck. Number 1 looks like the SMU horse. Four is total trash. Two's face is pretty dumb and I kind of feel that way about five too.

    I'd have to go with 2, but I don't really like any of them. REL's is better.

    #1 Looks like the horse is constipated. But I kinda like it.

    #2 Looks like the Colt is winking which makes it crap.

    #3 Just terrible. The face of the horse is not well done at all and the mane and the tail are bad as well. The picture is not conducive to fluid movement, more like "stationary" movement (if such a thing is possible). The thing looks more like a terrible country landscape drawer took LSD and drew a crappy colt and colored it blue.

    #4 Looks like a sixth grader cut out a picture of a horse and a picture of a triangle and glued them together. This was obviously done with paper and a magic marker rather than a computer program, what the heck? Again the mane and the tail are terrible and it just looks awful overall. If this contest was confined to 12 year olds it would be a possible winner, but COME ON.

    #5 I don't think a horse would ever run like that with its head tilted. The facial expression is just funny and not tough enough. It looks like me after I see a nice arse on a girl or something, haha.

    didn't the colts used to have a 2ndary logo coming from baltimore and I think they used it in Indy as well ?

    They need a new one Kauf to get the lemmings, I mean fans, to by more junk. Taking the legs off #2 makes it a little better.

    Is there a way to put the actual Colts logo here on this forum? I know it used to be different but I don't remember.

    Also, all those secondary logo's look like crap. Stupid marketing ploy.

    I can honestly agree that REL's is the best of all of these.

    Also, I agree with Nash's "alteration" to #2.

    Rel, that was nice. Too bad it didn't get picked. I would have voted for it.

    I will have to go with number 2. To me that is the lesser of all the evils.
