The recently announced winner of the Milwaukee Brewer’s “design a YOUniform” contest, has a decidedly retro twist. Congratulations to the winner, Ben Peters of Richfield, Minnesota. I wholeheartedly agree with the judges, this was a great rendition of a classic baseball look. I especially like the combination of a script capital “B” with smaller, Tiffany-esque capital letters to finish the word. And note the “unconnected” tail under the team name. These are all subtle design differences that make this look very special. And it seems another selling point with the Brewers was the resurrection of the “Beer Barrel Man” character, originally developed in the 1940’s. This is quite an unusual mascot and the mid century modern look of the new logo brings a fresh look to this old friend, sure to be a fan favorite. As you can see there are many ways to update classic looks by just making subtle changes. To create a similar look, try Stahls’ Tiffany numbers and combining some ideas from our AnyWord AnyWay program. We can even help you create multi color patches for hats with CADPrintz, a great alternative to just adding a letter to the cap.
