          Well at least he started in B/W and finished in B/W. It's simple and it works. No drop shadows, no bevels or emboss, or gradients.

          Overall it's a decent job.


          Wasn't there something about him starting up a global marketing company targeting everything from graphic design to film production or something?

            I thought the global marketing "genius" was the guy in white glasses...Kanye West?

            I was just reading an article on the Nets logo. overall it is bland, and the apparel is wonky.

            it doesn't have the normal sports bevels and many colors but seems a bit odd with line weights and letters.

              not bad, but it's basic. for a professional sports team i would expect something a little more refined. the S in nets on the first logo bugs me.

              This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.

              there is no grey area when it comes to 1 color logos.

                The second one works better then the shield.

                  I'm shocked it's not full of gradients and such.

                    Wait, JayZ designed it? Hm.

                    A designer friend of mine was soliciting opinions of this logo via Twitter. My reply was "I like that it's fairly simple & not overly complicated like many other newer sports teams' logos. Not especially *clever* though." His response: "Even the Raiders have silver with their black. B&W is not enough for a flexible brand, and the type and emblem lack cohesion."

                      Asymmetrical layouts are likely more common than they were a hundred years ago. Whether or not that qualifies asymmetry as looking modern is probably a matter of opinion. The letterhead layout you've...

                      That depends. Do you want your watermelon to have seeds or not? Or better, Does the purpose for which you are creating a slime dripping slice of watermelon require that it has seeds?

                      It isn't so much the fault of the schools. There is just so much out there these days beyond the realm of corporate identity work. Yeah it all revolves around ''The Sell'' somehow but it isn't all business...
