What’s Rob Reading?

Gary Cieradkowski's redesigned Negro League logos“(re)Designing Negro League Logos”
By Gary Cieradkowski, Studio Gary C

“The first line of designs I did with TeamBrown Apparel was a series of six Negro National League teams. I tried to create designs that would have looked at home on a scorecard or poster from 1942. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but to me they not only pay tribute to the men of the old Negro Leagues, but also – and this is the most important part – give these teams an identity, something most did not have back when they played. … When it comes to designing a shirt for a Negro League team, there’s two options for the artist. The first is to find something the team actually used. This explains the usual block letter “G” for the Homestead Grays or the intertwined “KC” of the Kansas City Monarchs. … The second option for the artist is to create a new logo for the team. This is the path I tend to take.”
