    Although there are has been an influx of baseball concepts on here lately, I thought I would finally throw my hat into the ring. I have been working on this project in my free time for a while and I finally have something to show you guys. Basically, I wanted to reign in the alternate overload in baseball and give each team a great look, some will get pretty drastic changes and some teams will get some pretty minimal changes. Each team will get a home uniform, road uniform, alternate uniform/jersey, and a batting practice jersey where I chose to have some fun and go outside of the box or look back at some historical looks. I have the National League done and I'm going to start with a team from the NL West today and I'll do my best to get a new team up every day or two. So without further ado, I have the Arizona Diamondbacks. I think most of us would agree the Diamondbacks uniforms are a big mess with way too much going on, to say the least. One thing I think they did get right was the great red, black, and turquoise color scheme, it definitely has a Southwestern feel to it. My concept for the Diamondbacks is simple and modern, drawing inspiration from past Diamondbacks' uniforms. The primary home uniform is white, the road is gray, the alt is red and BP is black. So here it is. As always, Id love to hear what everyone thinks an C&C is definitely welcome. Thanks for taking a look and the Padres are on the way tomorrow.

    That logoset is better than the LA Clippers one...geez.

    Or maybe the Braves should just admit that they have a gorgeous primary uniform, among the best in baseball, and stop trying to ruin their look with pointless alternates.

    There's something that's bugged me for years about the Mets' jerseys - the interior point of the "M" is out of alignment with the general upward sweep of the logo. Can you see it? Look at the interior point of the "M". On the whole, the logo has a pleasantly hand-drawn vibe to it. Small imperfections are a feature, not a bug. But this crosses the line from "charming" to "stupid". When first introduced, the Mets' jerseys had a perfectly balanced version of the logo, with the "M" point following the same upward sweep. Shortly thereafter, though, it got out of alignment. This photo of Ed Kranepool comes from just two years later: And it's been wrong to a greater or lesser degree ever since. What really kills me is that they've got a perfect wordmark in their set already - it's included in the primary logo. Used on its own, it doesn't have the angle problem that hurts the jersey script. The kerning is a little tighter, but that doesn't bother me. The jersey script has to account for the placket spacing between the "M" and "e", and that's a relatively minor difference. So that means Mets have two versions of their script - one used as a general wordmark and an inferior one used just for the jerseys. I can't ever un-see this.

    I've dedicated this thread to my Boston Red Sox's biggest arch rival, the New York Yankees, by updating their classic primary logo that has been used by the club since 1947. The entire logo is built from scratch. Since NY's main color is not red, I decided to reduce it, so the emphasis is now on the color navy. I also renewed and slightly thickened the red baseball stitches to create a cleaner look. The baseball bat is also slightly modified. I know that purists, Yankee hardcore fans would love to hit me now with at least one bat, but I've been toying with the idea of putting that concept into practice for quite a while. There's also an alternate mark I've created. Very simple, yet using the classic Yankees look. Could be worn on alternate navy uniforms with the interlocked "NY" on the chest for regular season usage. I know the chance those navy unis might become reality one day is, I guess, very, very, very slim. Current logo

    Trying to streamline the logo. I always loved the look of the shark in this logo but it always seemed way too busy. First, I removed the orange like I usually do when starting a San Jose concept. Always try and decide where the lighter gray should go. This time I went minimal with the gray. Then I started to remove some of the smaller linework that I feel doesn't really add anything to the logo. After that, I took a look and thought, does this logo need the broken stick? Sure it adds more of the idea of aggression, and well, it's a hockey stick to signify the sport the Sharks play. However, doesn't break a hockey stick show that the shark does not like hockey? Or maybe the shark just ate a player? I know the story behind the idea that it's eating the Pittsburgh Penguin, but the stick just doesn't do it for me. At first, it was really weird, but it grew on me. Lastly, I tweaked the color scheme a bit. The teal is a tad brighter and the black is actually just a dark charcoal gray. Maybe not noticeably different but I liked that look better than the pure black. Let me know what you think, jerseys will be up soon!

    Let's bring 'em on! I think the Astros have one of the best colour schemes on the Majors, but their current identity is a bit bland. That's why I decided to introduce a orange gradient (inspired by the Tequila Sunrise of course) to the current wordmarks and sleeve patch, replacing the current star with the H for the 2000/12 star. I decided to keep the gradient subtle on the home, road and home alt; this subtle gradient would be embossed, something like the pinstripes from this kit; while going for full colour on the road alt. Also, for the home alt, I decided to use a "Moonrise" gradient instead of the Sunrise for the home alt, in order to make it stand out more.

    Hey everyone. While it's the most exciting time for Basketball fans these days, I felt an immense desire to update all NBA courts for the upcoming season. I've done like 7 courts already, but let's just start with the Pelicans.

    Even if a team's intention to "honor" is legitimate, they don't do much to further these intentions by deciding if/how to represent a group of people without asking them if/how they want to be represented. To me, the best path forward for teams that want to keep Native-inspired names but move past imagery/traditions that are out-of-step is to follow what the Spokane Indians did. They didn't just back up their "honoring" rhetoric by respecting the tribe's right to have a say in how they are portrayed; they recognized that they could use the team's visibility to boost awareness of the tribe's culture and history, and use that culture and history as a resource to enrich the franchise's identity. And, not coincidentally, they ended up with one of the best, and most unique identities in the minors.

    I'll begin by posting the divisions, starting with the Metropolitan: Metropolitan I felt that some of these uniforms only needed minor tweaking, which is why I got it them out of the way first. Carolina Hurricanes: Square pattern added back into the jersey, very subtle solution to an already clean look. Colombus Blue Jackets: Taking cues from the Ohio flag, I try to give the Jax a more exciting look. New York Ranger: Untouchable uniform design, revised away uniform fonts to match striping. Philadelphia Flyers: Untouchable uniform design, original and classic. New Jersey Devils: Untouchable uniform design, revised logos to modernize the look. New York Islanders: Taking cues from the Brooklyn Alts, I try to give the Isles an updated identity in their current colour scheme. Pittsburgh Penguins: Untouchable uniform design, adjusted waist stripes to clean uniform up. Washington Capitals: Updated the current striping pattern to make it more modern, made better use of the Weagle.

    No updates on the Cubs yet, I've been super busy and just got some time to post tow more NL Central teams. First, I have the Pirates. I think they have great looking home and road uniforms, but I think their best look is in vests, so white and grey vested jerseys with blacks sleeves are back, complete with sock stripes. The all-black alternate uniform draws inspiration form the Pirates era of mix and match uniforms. The set also includes a yellow batting practice jersey. Next is the Milwaukee Brewers, a team with lots of good uniform pieces but IMO, they have never put together a solid set (I'm one of those people who never cared fo the glove logo.) I thought I'd fully embrace the beer label aesthetic by creating a primary logo and scripts inspired by an actual beer label.I also brought back the retro block M logo. The new colors are navy, mustard gold and cream. the set also includes a gold alternate and navy blue batting bractice uniform featuring the Brewers Wisconsin logo on the cap and left chest. just noticed I forgot to arch the NOB, I'll fix that. Anyway, thanks for taking a look and C&C is always welcome. I'm looking forward to some great feedback. Thanks again

    That would immediately be LA's best logo. And that's saying something.

    I'm sorry, but no Pats fan who hasn't watched for longer than 20 years has room to even come close to describing anything Pats related as "historic failure." Choking away a perfect season 10 years ago when they had already won three rings is the equivalent of a trust fund 16 year old not getting the right color Lamborghini on their birthday. This Pats era isn't going to be remembered for the 18-1 year, I can guarantee that. Contributing to the post, the 2000 Titans have my vote. Sizably better team than the one that won the AFC the year before, the best team probably Tennessee has ever had, blew it to the Ravens in the divisional round.

    Yep, as much as I loved the "C" cap design (and I definitely would keep in some capacity) I love that S-O-X design. Looks great. Reminds me of this design which I'm really kicking myself for not getting when I had the chance (no pun intended).

    Haven't had too much time to work on much of anything recently, but with HJC's latest competition starting up, I figured it would be a good time to get back in the design game. The rules for this competition allow for you to submit 3 concepts for teams at the '17 IIHF World Championship (USA, Canada, and your choice). If I can, I'd love to turn this into a series, but for now I am just going to post my work for those first three teams. I'll start off by posting Team USA...C&C appreciated!

    And it's the way things are going. Corporate arena names? Check. Ads on everything including jerseys? Check. What else can be used to advertise? The team name, of course! The 2025 Eastern Conference finals: featuring the GE Celtics vs. the Stub Hub 76ers! I just hope the Little Caesars Pistons can officially unveil their logo in a timely manner...

    Maybe thin the stripes by about 1/8" (or 0.318 cm) and readjust the red/navy parts to equal widths, while restoring the striped socks and contrast-colored tomahawk. More like this: ...and less like this: The older style is a tiny bit more legible from a distance. Most people won't notice the difference, but their brains will. This has been your "I'm so f***ing persnickety about the silliest things" moment of the day.

    The continuing scandals indicate that it's not too late for the NCAA to do something about it. The lack of institutional control is ongoing. Unfortunately, that would require both a spine and sense of integrity. So our rogue school will be allowed to continue on its merry way because of who they are.

    Fire departments are typically known as "(insert city name)'s Bravest", so maybe modifying the tomahawk into a firefighters axe could work IF change would be made.

    I enjoy playing basketball, but have never enjoyed the professional version of it. I wouldn't say I hate the NBA, but I find 90% of it to be unnecessary. Most of the time the game could be decided by only playing 10 minutes and the result would be the same. I feel like the officials call too many fouls, I don't know why they call a foul sometimes and other times they don't, I don't like how rosters are built, I don't like how defense is so obviously half-assed in the regular season, among many other reasons. I also don't like how it's become America's second favorite sport thanks to ESPN's round the clock coverage. I do like documentaries, books, podcasts about basketball, but actually watching the games I find incredibly boring.

    Next up is the Chicago Cubs (sorry, White Sox fans) in the style of the Chicago Blackhawks. For this concept, I took the Cubs' pinstripes and placed them as hem and sleeve stripes. The gloves and numbers are red to add color balance. C&C is appreciated!

    Time for the Indians! As you could've seen in the last posts, I decided to design a new Block C (and I), as well as a new sleeve patch for the Tribe, completely ditching the Chief Wahoo. Instead of keeping the home wordmark, I used the new C, given the Indians home uniforms from 1903 to 1945 featured different styles of C's on the front. The home and road uniforms style remains the same, while the new alts are inspired by the uniforms used during the 70's and the 80's.
