Creating an identity for a baseball team is still on my bucket list. This is a quick update to an idea for a concept team I had a few years ago.
The Amargosa Abducted Heads are inspired by Area 51, this mass UFO sighting at a baseball game in Canada, and taking the idea of “getting inside your opponent’s head” to the next level.

To represent design purely as the creative act of individuals… temporarily enhances the importance of designers, but ultimately only degrades design by severing it from its part in the workings of society.

Design is a vessel. There’s the whole Buddhist thing about the essence of a bowl being its emptiness—that’s why it’s useful. Its emptiness allows it to hold something. I guess that means that design must talk about something else. If you make design about design, you’re just stacking bowls, and that’s not what bowls are for.
