When you’re redesigning a sports team’s kit and logo, you know you have a big job on your hands. Not only are you designing for the players, you’re designing for the fans too – because all the decisions you make will have a direct impact on the supporters’ kit. And let’s be honest – there’s something very iconic about the design for American sports teams.
Nike recently redesigned the kit and logo for the Miami Dolphins, for the 2013 season. You can see how they updated the logo on the gloves below, streamlining it and bringing it up to date.
The same goes for the kit itself, which was inspired by 1970s Miami, as well as the sand and surf the city is renowned for. Below, a short video explaining the inspiration for the redesign:

If you grew up reading Roald Dahl, the chances are you will have come across illustrator Quentin Blake – his iconic illustrations brought the BFG, the Twits and a range of other classic characters to life.
Primarily an illustrator for children’s books, Blake also ventures into more adult territory. This collection of illustrations shows exactly what the name describes – women holding strange creatures. Using nothing but a reed pen and with no preliminary sketches, Blake brings his signature rough style to a series of nudes. Beautiful work!
Robba Saldana set himself a mammoth task – to illustrate a song once a day, every day for an entire year. We love the quick, hand-drawn nature of this project but most of all we love the design thinking. The integration of type is great and many of these illustrations almost have a ‘logo’ look and feel to them.
A great piece of work, which is still ongoing. Check out more of Robba’s work here.
This beautiful set of illustrations by Rachel Ignotofsky shows kids (and let’s be honest, adults too) how different systems in the body work.
They’re cute, they’re fun and they’re well executed. Wonderful illustrations.
