MLB concept logos of the Minnesota Twins by various design artists from around the world. These are redesigned ideas and not actual team logos.

Variations of blue and green are my favorite color scheme, so I wanted to incorporate a fair share of it throughout the series. Royal blue and kelly green is a scheme that fits the Minnesota area well, with the blue representing the lakes and the green representing the forest. It’s also obviously a scheme that has been represented well in Minnesota’s sports past.
-The dropshadows are gone, because although I think they are an interesting and unique idea, they are very hard to execute properly.
-I experimented with using navy instead, or even incorporating light blue, but neither of those ideas seemed to work. Early iterations of this set also incorporated black, but I scrapped that and kept it to royal and kelly.

This is loosely inspired by (I think it was BallWonk’s) Twins concept. The colors are based on something I saw from someone on here anyway, and I believe they had to do with a proposed flag for Minnesota. Despite that fact, the reason i picked them has somewhat to do with the flag but additionally the fact that those colors are ascetically pleasing in my opinion. I used the two swing silhouettes to represent twin baseball players. I think something like this was necessary because the Twins presently do not have any primary logos with “Twin Symbolism” at all. The silhouetted player is Harmon Killebrew. I used the home plate design because I believe the idea of having a baseball in the logo has become somewhat cliche.

Alright, let’s start with colors. Anybody who follows this thread had to know I was axing the navy and red, well at least one of them (red), for this concept. Enter kelly green. Then pair it with navy blue and a steely light blue. I think this color scheme works well for a Minnesota-based team, as it invokes memories of trees, lakes, and sky. I also had to think of an abstract way to show the twin relationship (something I am quite familiar with, being a twin and all, but never had to describe graphically, until now that is). I decided to take an MT monogram (not sure if the term changes when it’s 2 letters) and I split it in half. This, IMO, shows the idea of two parts becoming a whole. This is also the idea behind the argyle: two diamonds that share a bond (third diamond). The uniforms feature the argyle, as well as a modified block font, which the Edmonton Oilers use on their alternate jerseys (or at least they did, not sure). I decided that using green for the homes and navy for the roads also fell in line with the duplicity I was going for. The Sunday Alt. has more of a retro style, and features the MT as a crest. Anyways, I hope everyone has enjoyed looking at and commenting on this series as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
