Even if you don't like sports, there are many sports logos with which you may be familiar. But here's the thing: even if you DO like sports -- even if you instantly recognize a myriad of logos and create the semiotic link in your head to the team they represent on a daily basis -- they're insanely hard to recreate from memory alone.
This is our ongoing series where we attempt to recreate these logos using only a drawing implement and our own all-too-fallible human memories. Please enjoy our horrible attempt at the logo and accompanying anecdote, then give it a shot for yourself in the comments below. Have fun!
This week is the first time we can attempt to draw either the cap logo OR an alternate logo. This will be a recurring feature from here on out. You can try your hand at either ... or both! A lot of baseball cap logos are just an assortment of letters. While it's tricky to remember the exact shape of said letters, or where precisely they intersect, when a logo may seem too "easy" we will challenge ourselves by attempting a secondary logo.
Because we're all about personal growth here.
This week, we've got the Chicago White Sox and their deceptively-tricky primary/cap logo. It uh ... I didn't do well at this.
So I decided to try their alternate 1980s logo! Simple, right?
Not if you're me, apparently.
