One of my niche talents is sports logos– I'm not sure if it just comes naturally or it stems from my time with the Akron RubberDucks. Brandiose, who rebrands a lot of minor league teams, is a huge inspiration to me and I strive to create the same caliber of content they put out.
The Portland SeaDogs are in the same league as the RubberDucks, so I've seen and worked with their logo quite a bit. I didn't want to rename or completely overhaul the design, just a more modern update. I kept the colors and basic imagery in terms of the sea dog with the bat in his mouth, but also created a new action that the character could take on.
