Just playing around with the Portsmouth FC badge [1]…

Struck me that, much like my own side Leeds, the introduction of their current badge at the height of their most recent successes has since coincided with a catastrophic downfall. This badge attempts to reintroduce a few more traditional elements (e.g. the colours, the shape of the shield), whilst retaining some of the design cues that helped bring the PFC identity into the 21st century, such as the detailing on the moon-and-star - which itself here bears a much closer resemblance to the moon-and-star featured on the city’s coat of arms, the original source of inspiration PFC’s crest.
You can see I’ve also attempted to stay true to the simplicity of the crest itself by using simple geometric forms to create each element - that’s fairly typical of all the work I do. Lots of circles, angles and precision. I might neeed to loosen up my approach for other identities, but I really like how it’s worked here.

More playing with that same football design [1]. Really like the shield shape, but thought it needed the banner just to balance it all out - this, in turn, has accidentally made it look a lot like the Shamrock Rovers badge [2]. Which I just so happen to admire rather a lot. Subconscious copying at work? Seems to be unavoidable in creative disciplines! [[MORE]] [1] That original football design I was talking about.

One of those ‘just because I can’ pieces. Wanted to play around with a geometric-ish old-style football. Background was added to try and give it some *pop*, but I’m not sure it’s worked!

Playing around with sports lettering. This is for York Wheelchair Basketball Club, who held a logo competition last year. My entry wasn’t successful (no feedback either, sad face), but regardless, I’ve been taking it through some evolution on and off for the last 11 months or so now. Just for fun.
