Well, I believe that this specific snake logo is a creation of and owned by Nike.

In the design industry the client has say over everything so the client chooses everything

Lulz.

I think you greatly underestimate Nike's sphere of influence over US Soccer (and soccer in general.)

Why does the US play Brazil in friendlies so often?

Why did Fat Ronaldo start a World Cup final he was in no physical condition to play?

Why is Brazil a traveling roadshow like the Harlem Globetrotters?

That shite is all branding. You think administrative bodies like CAF and USSF are marketing wizards? What company is (arguably) the best in the world at branding?

If Nike wants us in platinum and neon, we'll be in it, rest assured.

I'll temper that by saying, I think Nike is cognizant of how important "red, white and blue" is as a design element for the national team, and the tradition that entails (even as it relates to other arenas like Olympic teams).... So, I really don't think they'd stray to far from that.

Though, they did put the women in black jerseys a couple years back (and gold) a few years prior, so the precedent is there.

They also released the black Brasil jerseys a couple years ago, stating they would worn for an upcoming match (and causing an uproar) and backtracking on that idea. (I think.)

I'm not saying Nike would put us in platinum and neon.... I'm saying Nike swings a bigger stick than USSF does in deciding if we did or not.

Exactly, the client is Nike.





Or, and probably more likely, the artwork is done in house.

I just had an idea to make these wallpapers even better. I'll try to get to them this weekend.

GC, can you photoshop or otherwise take our current badge and remove the ball and jets from it?

Yeah. That should be simple. I was thinking about checking that out anyway.
