I was told by a professor that whoever wins CSULB’s new mascot search, the people behind it won’t be compensated. An ad agency will pick it up to further develop it. Sad, considering all the things the mascot is going to be put on.
What kind of message does that send to the art students? I would never do that. Anyway, I like the sharks, krakens, and stingrays. I know the marine biology department is behind the sharks, considering all the publicity that surrounds The Shark Lab (Animal Planet, The LAist, Spectrum News). And I saw someone mention how sharks can tie in with Steven Spielberg’s Jaws (1975), but if I’m being honest, the school worships him enough.

NBA 2K League says of logo: “Absent is a human silhouette, which speaks to the inclusive nature of the league and the opportunity for any type of player to try out – young or old, male or female, based domestically or abroad.”
Heatcheck & Blazer5 – Awesome names!
I’m all about my Superclouds and Cloudfoam Ultra sandals. And of course, the patented Superstar sneakers. I have a variety of them but I swear I’m not a sneakerhead. I’m just saying, this is an Adidas house.
The tags pictured are from a jacket I recently purchased.
For those who need to be schooled:
Adi’s brother, Rudolf, founded Puma. And before they were fighting against each other, they were fighting amongst each other for Nazi Germany.
More if you have 20 minutes to kill:
Heavyweight 12 oz. fabric cut on cross-grain to reduce length shrinkage. 4″ wide action gussets. Double needle construction for extra durability.
Uncompromised Quality. Signature Details. Distinctly Champion.
Analysis – Top notch Adobe Illustrator work, the designer definitely sketched this out beforehand, or took photos of a model as a template. Either way, it’s still vector.
Was checking out high school basketball clips of the Ball Brothers (LiAngelo and LaMelo) and their school logo caught my eye. It was reminiscent to the Minnesota Timberwolves logo in the 90’s. Not just on subject matter but the color schemes are quite similar. I’m not feeling their road jerseys however; the navy-blue numbers are hard to see on evergreen! A shade on a shade… And I’m throwing shade. So it’s a shade on a shade on a shade. Bleh.
More about the Ball Brothers: They have been sweeping the nation the past couple years. Helped Chino Hills High capture the state title last year with their older brother Lonzo Ball, now a UCLA freshman guard.
Both LiAngelo and LaMelo have also committed to UCLA, but they probably won’t get another shot to play with Lonzo, who is expected to be a lottery pick in this year’s NBA Draft.
LaMelo Ball went viral this week… His halfcourt shot VS Foothill got millions of views across multiple media sources and even Stephen Curry had something to say about it…
This is bigger than you think. I’ve never seen so much hype around California high school basketball in a long time.
Their father is living the basketball dream right now. You can tell he’s been pushing them hard for a long time. An athlete himself, I’m sure he’s been waiting for this.
The San Diego Chargers are now moving back to Los Angeles! The Los Angeles Rams now have a crosstown rival. The last time The Chargers and The Rams were both stationed in LA simultaneously was in 1960! And the last time LA had 2 pro football teams was in 1994.
Other headline: Is Chargers’ new logo the product of a Dodgers-Lightning hookup?
