The "MLS NEXT PRO" Logo Will Make You Question Existence
December 6, 2021

Major League Soccer is, allegedly, a professional sports organization. I was assured of this during the MLS expansion process for FC Cincinnati, where it was stated repeatedly that they were a “real” league that represented the best of what soccer could be in North America. What MLS doesn’t have, apparently, is anyone with an ounce of design or branding sense.

Dear Jim Curtin
December 5, 2021

First time, long time Jim, I’m a huge fan. A smart young American coach known for a distinct style of play and a distance style on the sidelines. You’re killing it in Philly. You always struck me as the kind of guy who could eventually move on to the next level.

Kill Your Darlings
November 18, 2021

In writing there’s a saying: “Kill your darlings.” It’s such common advice that it’s beyond cliché at this point. But if somehow you haven’t come across the phrase (I’d say that all in the FC mediaverse are avid readers but I’d be “Lion”) it basically means that you can’t fall in love with a specific part of your writing because anything that doesn’t serve the overall piece needs to be cut. And you have to be ruthless.
