Mike Safo with Todd Radom

Mike Safo

Joined today by author and legendary graphic designer, Todd Radom. Todd and I talk about growing up in NYC, what has changed the most and what food he craves now that he’s in Upstate NY. Todd talks about his obsession with logos and uniforms at a young age, and what draws him to the color schemes and intricate details. We talk about the Red Sox New Patriots day uniform, the ever changing NBA city edition jerseys and if the players actually care what their uniform looks like. We discuss his incredible new book “Fabric of the Game: The Stories Behind the NHL’s Names, Logos, and Uniforms”, what made him want to write a book like this, the difficulties of writing this book with a partner and the challenges of limiting each franchise to 4-5 pages. We touch on some legendary teams such as the Maple Leafs, Red Wings and Rangers to some obscure teams like the Quakers and the California Seals. Todd then talks about  what made him famous, and that's designing some of the most recognizable logos in the world of sports. We hear about how he designed a Super Bowl logo, the pride of creating the Brooklyn Cyclones logo and some of his other projects. Todd and I talk about the disappearing usage of ticket stubs, which sporting event he wished he could have witnessed live, and his unique brick memorabilia collection. All this and more with the Logo King Todd Radom.

185: NHL Hockey by Design - With Chris Creamer & Todd Radom

Good Seats Still Available

Logo archivist Chris Creamer (SportsLogos.net) and graphic brand designer Todd Radom (Todd Radom Design) join this week's show to dive into the rich and fascinating visual story of the National Hockey League's nearly 103-year history - as told by the names, logos and uniforms of its teams. Their new book collaboration Fabric of the Game: The Stories Behind the NHL's Names, Logos and Uniforms is a comprehensive look into the rationale behind and the execution of the iconography of each of the league's major historical franchise lineages - from the respective journeys of today's 32 teams to the forgotten former clubs of yore. Of course, we go long and hard into the visual foibles of the latter - who can forget the Cleveland Barons, Kansas City Scouts, Colorado Rockies, California/Oakland/Bay Area/California Golden Seals, the Atlanta Thrashers, or even the New York/Brooklyn Americans? But there are plenty of revealing tidbits and surprising twists for fans of today's NHL franchises - including directionless Stars, wayward Flames, cartoonish Ducks - and a hot debate on just where team histories should go when they pull up stakes for greener pastures.
