28 in 28 Week Three: From Lichtenstein to bananas to a Bob Marley reference

Posted by Justin McIntosh | February 24, 2014 10:30 AM

Editor's note: As Massive City FFC's Justin Bell laid out in the project's first post, fate seemed to conspire to get this baby rolling. And now that it's rolling, we can clearly see why (SPOILER: It's been hella cool). As we'd always planned, Alive will post weekly roundups of each new Crest, with links back to Massive City so you can read more about the thought that went into each logo. You're gonna wanna. If you'd like to submit logo designs of your own, email Justin at massivecityffc@gmail.com.

DAY FIFTEEN: CREW*BERT

Half-way through this project finds us considering a tribute to ... ? Can you guess, Crew fans? Justin left some clues, but it's admittedly a little obvious.

DAY SIXTEEN: THREE LITTLE BIRDS


Frankie Hejduk gets the shout-out in today's Crew logo re-design.

DAY SEVENTEEN:BANANA KIT


Today's new logo harkens back to the Crew's beloved "banana kits," aka the distinctive all-yellow jerseys.

DAY EIGHTEEN: NEW DAWN

Today's post didn't have much of a write-up, but it doesn't really need it. It truly is a new era in Crew soccer, so here's a sun.

DAY NINETEEN: DIE ALTE SUD ENDE

Today's post references Columbus' German heritage by designing a new Crew logo inspired not by that country's Bundelisia soccer teams as others have done, but Germany's coat of arms and our own city's German Village Society's take on that coat of arms.

DAY TWENTY: LICHTENSTEIN

Justin uses the pop art of Roy Lichtenstein as inspiration for today's crest.

DAY TWENTY-ONE: CENTENNIAL CREST, 1912

Justin goes back in history again for today's post, this time reimagining Columbus as if our city had a soccer team in the old American Amateur Football Association, and that team used the city's 1912 Centennial celebration as inspiration for its logo.
