I really dig this, but I wish it could be more focused on the lacrosse stick. I think the type will be too small when the mark is reduced to a reasonable size. I like the subtle shading on the stick too, I think you're really close to something that could be fantastic, keep working!!!

Hey Bart - big improvement on the original logo IMO. However, I have a few suggestions for you. 1) Reduce the height of the top point of the shield. It's creating a huge empty space above the type which I don't think you need. 2) I would make the lacrosse sticks/bolts larger and longer - they feel a little small and stumpy right now. 30 Tighten the kerning between the %22H%22 and the %22T%22 and the %22T%22 and the %22N%22 in %22LIGHTNING%22 as it's creating a large visual gap in the word. **It's coming along great though. Nice work.

I agree with sdijock, and really do like the overall look. Great color scheme, similar in feel to the LA Galaxy (http://web.mlsnet.com/t106/) but am thrown off a bit by sky blue here: lightning makes me think of moody, steel gray, which too would go really well with the gold and navy. Overall, I simply like the look. Hell, I'd wear their t-shirts!

Love the lacrosse stick lightning bolts, Bart, but is that the Colorado Rapids crest I see there?

Cool Bart. Have you tried putting more emphasis on the club name? Perhaps have it extend outside of the shield?

I would like to see the lacrosse stick lightning bolts extend over the shield.

The Colorado Rapids Soccer logo's arched font has a serif. But it certainly looks as though this logo was overly inspired by it. I have to agree, a little too much so. Use of wide, low slung shadows is the same. It is too close for comfort.

I have to agree with others, this logo is far too close to the Rapids logo. If I were you, i would take the elements that are working, the crossed sticks, and try again.

Thanks for the comments people. These words are EXACTLY what I wanted to show my client on this project.

I can't help it, it reminds me of Chiquita banana stickers :-)
