We've had to sit with the Suns new court design for a couple days. While we love the new right side up, upside down suns typography, we absolutely hate the rest of the court.
Let's start with the bad.
The Phoenix Suns colors are purple and orange with accents of black and white, not orange and black with purple no where to be found.
Yes, all of the seating in the arena is purple. Though, when the arena is full, as any team owner hopes it would be, you won't see the purple seats. You will see one giant Halloween themed court. Hopefully someone will use the flooring as kindle this Holiday season.
Let's end on the good.
When it comes to arena seating, one side of the arena will always see your logo upside down. Lucky for the Suns, right side up or upside down, their new logo looks right to everyone. This new logo is a win and are ready for all the new swag to come out.
We tried to contact Fisher to see who actually designed this logo (we're looking for the specific person's name at Fisher who designed the logo), but they didn't return our emails. Do you know who did this? Let us know. We like to give credit where credit is due.
Our own Valley ad agency, RIESTER, has been chosen as one of six agencies to kick those butts. They, along with Grey, Mullen, Draftfcb, Campbell-Ewald, and American Legacy Foundation will be assigned projects to assist in spending $390M over five years.
Congrats RIESTER, we can't wait to see what you come up with this time because we still love the "Tumor Causing, Teeth Staining, Smelly, Puking Habit" campaign.
Welcome to Round 2 of Feature Friday. This week we are invading the brain of Doug Penick. This is what we love to see, a local resident badass with tattoos and all. We can feel his style bleed out of the ink on his skin and into the work he produces. Check out the survey below and find out a little more about Doug.
You've seen their work, maybe heard their names but have yet to put two and two together. People in this town do great work and they should get credit for it. Feature Friday hopes to do just that. We are seeking designers, art directors, writers, programmers etc. to showcase and finally put a face to the work.
This week's feature is Jess Trounce. She is a local freelancer who has just brought Creative Mornings to Phoenix. The first one will be held at Phoenix Design Week 2012. Keep up the good work Jess. We at The Phoenix Egotist salute you.
We love hearing what's going on in agencies around the Valley. This morning we heard that some of Phoenix's largest agencies are going head to head on a pitch for a local product called Vitamin Squeeze.
We wish all of them the very best and look forward to seeing the great ideas we know they are capable of.
Are you one of the agencies pitching? Can you provide more information about the pitch? Let us know: Phoenix@TheEgotist.com
It's true that most people just care about the ingestable and digestable things that come out of a food truck, but what about what's on one. There aren't many designers with a food truck design in their book. Why is that? Who is really designing these mobile trucks of deliciousness. Have you designed a food truck? Do you have a favorite food truck design? Let us know and send us pictures! Phoenix@TheEgotist.com
Here are some food trucks from around the country we've wrangled up. Let us know what you think of each of the trucks' design.
