Review: AUDL Connecticut Constitution

First in the series evaluating the 8 AUDL team logos and nicknames.

Team: Connecticut Constitution // Website:

Colors: Red, White, Blue // Representation: State

Disc within logo?: Yes. //  Ultimate element in team name?: No.

History: The original constitutions of Connecticut state influenced the US Constitution, as one of the leading authors was from New Haven (CT).

First impression(s): Could be a British army soldier (red coat) with a wicked inside-out throw; or, a patriotic reenactor who tosses vinyl records. The state name in and of itself relates to Ultimate more than the team name [Connect (when) I Cut]. Similar to old NE Patriots logo...

Jeremiah's Eval: Illustration is bad, although a good attempt for someone's first try at using Adobe Illustrator (I assume). Because of where the throwing hand is, it looks like the follow through for a flick, but the rough curved lines make it look like the "disc" was coming from across the front of the body indicating backhand. The whole design is very goofy. Whatever is being thrown is not a disc, especially not an Ultimate disc. I am trying to figure out what is going on with the malformed grey area inside the oval red shape. The typography leaves a lot to be desired.

Jeremiah's Grade: F-

What are your thoughts on this AUDL's team name & logo?

At least the Patriot is wearing the correct color coat.
