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

The font is a slightly modified version of the 2014 NBA All-Star Game font (made by Conrad), as I felt it tied in well with the sharp edges and swoopy lines of the architecture theme (and was kind of a more refined version of the curvy serif font used by the team from 1969-’77. I changed up the “SD” logo to reflect this change in font and better represent the 1985-present style of “SD” logos. The updated Swingin’ Friar again returns, but this time he’s backed by the mission home plate logo, to make him easier to center without having to use a roundel.

Personally I hate the Padres current look. It has gotten to the place of complete blandness to me.
Got bored on train rides into city and wanted to share the final product of a rebrand idea I had.

The San Diego Padres are in our in our backyard, so it’s easy to pick up on the overall temperature of fans discontent for their beloved, nostalgia-fueled baseball club. In the mid 2000’s, the Padres nobly cleaned up the Pads look to refresh their spirit and build a champion-worthy team with a more buttoned-up, professional system with a geographical color palette. It had more San Diego ties, but was somehow less San Diego than ever. One thing they had going for them, was a bold, no frills approach to their brand an uniform system. The confusing transition resulted in many variations of alternate and throwback unis to make fans happy, but ultimately clashed and scattered the core brand. We reimagined a concept rebrand for how the Padres could continue the path of professional, but tie back to their roots without looking like a “throwback” team.
