I gotta admit the first few times I saw the EWU logo (it was in an avatar, you understand, which is much smaller than one would normally see it), I thought it was a swastika.

:dunce:

This has got to be among the worst:

GATW: I called myself on that, didn't I? I also noted that the larger print made it obvious that it wasn't.

BF's Take:

When I think of great logos I think of an image that describes a team *WITHOUT* lettering. Another thing that great logos need is *SIMPLICITY* & *BALANCE*, most great logos are *usually* balanced. A balanced logo is usually helmet worthy. One last thing to take into consideration, is the logo unique and cool enough that the vast majority would notice what that logo meant if the schools name isnt listed under it. Lets take the Big Sky for example.

Image


EWU- Good balance & creativity. IMO ppl would associate it to Eastern Washington University.
ISU- (taking "ISU" away)-Great creativity & balance even w/the burst lines.but there are tons of tiger logos out there.
UM-(taking the phase away) Creative but not balanced/NOT helmet worthy.
MSU-Great creativity but not balanced. This logo does make you think of MSU.
NAU- Technically NAU only has the 'axe' which isnt bad, but they should add more to the logo. the axe is a good start.
UNC- The bear does make you think of UNC but it isnt balanced or simple & is not helmet worthy.
PSU- Great creativity & simplicity but is not balanced, looks cool on helmet but should be balanced out in some way.
CSUS-Not very creative but it is unique & makes you think of Sac st. I think the fat hornet was the better logo.
WSU-The Shield is awkward but is unique & balanced. Removing 'Weber State' makes it helmet worthy.

Conclusion-MSU's 'M' with the triple stripe is the best helmet in the Big Sky. Second is EWUs creative Eagle. UM got beat to the 'M' punch by MSU bc technically that should be Montana, bc usually the 'State' school doesnt get that plain state letter. ex Michigan, Arizona, Washington, Oregon, Florida... the list goes on.

At first glance, the cat in Weber State's logo always looks to me like it's being sucked into an evil mirror. Like instead of leaping at me, it looks like it's reaching out for something to cling to. Anyone else get the intended sense of motion wrong, or is that just me?

Image

I generally like two-color, non-letter logos like that though: Richmond, Penn State, Iowa, SMU, Michigan State, even Kansas State. I'd probably include Texas, were they not Texas. EWU's is technically 3-color, but feels kinda 2-color.

Logos I HATE: anything drawn cartoon or comic book style.
Also, these two:

Image

What with Northwestern being a highly prestigious institution, I'm sure there's some important tradition behind that logo, but it still looks slapdash and Division II to me. And Pitt's I think was recognized as a disaster. I remember back when they put it on their helmets, I had no idea what the hell I was looking at.

I generally agree, but I have a hard time believing anyone could hate this:

YSU has the greatest logo in the NCAA. I mean, it's one freakin' badass, mean, pissed off penguin....who's possibly a little cold despite being a penguin. One word to describe the awesomeness that is the penguin: AWESOME!

Great creativity?? It looks like someone with entry level photo shop skills and a lingering passion for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers drew it up in their dorm room.

The thing I find odd about Montana's logo is that the grizzly is brown. I know, grizzlies are in fact brown, but usually a logo incorporates the school colors. But, I have seen versions of the same logo where the grizzly is maroon and it just doesn't look all that good. So, the brown was probably the right call, but it still strikes me as odd.
