ABOUT: The San Jose Earthquakes are an American professional soccer team based in San Jose, California, that participate in Major League Soccer (MLS). The team is one of the ten charter members of MLS which competed in the league’s first season in 1996 (originally as the San Jose Clash) and took part in the first game in MLS history, defeating D.C. United 1–0 (wikipidea).
In January (2014) the club celebrated its 40th anniversary with a brand new San Jose Earthquake Logo.

LOGO DESIGN ELEMENTS:
Opinion: I like the thought put behind the design elements,
but the overall crest design falls a bit short for me.
Maybe it’s because of the different weights between the design elements that feels a bit awkward, or it could be because the soccer ball is the only three dimensional element?
