    Block numbers are solid and will stand the test of time. A team can never go wrong with using block numbers.

    One could argue that the Browns have been dormant since their return in 1999. Ba-da-boom.

    If the Jets skate out on to the ice to "Break the walls down" against Vegas I would mark out. Have the countdown to the millennium clock too.

    I hate how Nike does the Jets shoulder stripe. After the shoulder cap, it shouldn’t be the same color for the next stripe. Always bugs me.

    I've been a long time peruser, occasional poster on these forums for a while now. Over the years, I've seen many great concepts, but there has always been one poster whose concepts I really gravitate towards, Oldschoolvikings. A few weeks ago, I pulled up his NFL Fauxback Thread and saw his 1965 Baltimore Ravens concept. I really love how it captured the essence of 60's design.... One of my hobbies is building football helmets. I liked Oldschool's Ravens helmet concept so much, that I decided to make an actual helmet based on his design for my personal collection. Below is the result... Big thanks to Oldschoolvikings for the inspiration and coming up with this design. Keep up the great concepts......I love 'em!

    Just use this with a matching black at home. It celebrates the entire history of Ottawa hockey and is the perfect compromise between the roman and heritage themes. Also put the =O= on the shoulders.

    You sold tickets and got the fanbase excited and lost in the second round like a bunch of idiots. Meanwhile the Suns and Grizzlies wisely took the season off and will draft future hall of fame players at the top of the draft. Ignored your own rules. Huge mistake, Sixers.

    Dennis Erickson returns to the Desert with AAF April 11, 2019-- Tucson, Arizona Dennis Ericson, former Arizona State, Seahawk and 49er Head Coach returned to the desert of Arizona today as the new head coach of the Tucson Thunder. Erickson, along with league CEO Charlie Ebersol and two former Wildcats, LB Teddy Bruschi and S Chuck Cecil. Cecil is actually returning for good as the new DC of the Tucscon AAF Franchise. In addition to the former Wildcats and Coach Erickson, the AAF premiered the identity and home uniforms of the Thunder. The team has a definite Southwest flair with their primary logo a proud Thunderbird in the traditional depiction found in Navajo, Apache and Hopi iconography. AAF CEO Ebersol was quick to announce that the logo and design elements taken from local nations was reviewed and approved by leadership councils of all three Arizona Native American nations. The Thunderbird, predominantly black, with sky blue and red highlights, will adorn white helmets which also have traditional weaving patterns as their central stripe. The raindrop motif found in the Thunderbird wings also repeats on the uniform, as does the diamond shaped pattern of the mythical bird's torso. The team will wear sky blue jerseys and socks along with white pants trimmed with the Thunderbird wing pattern. It is a look that both represents the local peoples and the power of the Thunderbird. The team will play at the U. of Arizona's stadium, where they hope to have some of the biggest crowds in the league, and will play in the Western Division where they can form natural rivalries with the 2 California squads (San Diego and Sacramento), a close-by rival in Albuquerque, and the San Antonio Squadron, currently led by Johnny Manziel. Tucson and Atlanta represent an early expansion for the league which has exceeded both attendance and television rating expectations in their first season.

    Atlanta United Chicago Fire Colorado Rapids Columbus Crew D.C. United HC Dallas Houston Dynamo Montreal Impact New England Revolution New York City FC New York Red Bulls Orlando City SC Philadelphia Union Toronto FC Colorado Rapids FC Dallas Houston Dynamo LA Galaxy Minnesota United FC Portland Timbers Real Salt Lake San Jose Earthquakes Seattle Sounders FC Sporting Kansas City Vancouver Whitecaps FC I've seen many crossover series before, but most stick to traditional striping patterns used by the teams, applying them to another sport's uniform. I wanted to start from the teams' names and logos, but leave the striping up to hockey conventions. I figured the North American league where messing with identities would provoke the least outcry would be the MLS, so here's the first team in my MLS to hockey crossover... the Atlanta United! I got rid of the "FC" from both the name and logo, and also removed its striping. I matched the striping with the logo, and kept red cuffs and hems. I used black pants, but kept the home helmet red. What do you think? C&C Appreciated!

    Yeah, very 90s, colors and all, but it is a STUPID logo. For a team called the Clippers, that is. What does a crashing wave and sun rays have to do with a very fast sailing ship? Nothing. Change the name to the Breakers, the Waves, the Surf, and you've got something. Otherwise-- fail. BUT, speaking of Lost Sports Logos, here's a real doozie. The proposed logo to be used for the White Sox if they had moved to Tampa Bay in 1989 and become the Florida White Sox: I remembered seeing this logo on a TV news piece back in '88, when the Illinois legislature was voting on the new Comiskey. Finally found it online.

    The presence of (and even the language in) the header makes it seem more like an internal presentation page rather than a graphic that’s intended to be used as a media tool, so in that sense, there’s not really much informational value to the graphic. if you’re wondering why someone would lay out all the numbers even though there are no “left/right” pairings, there are a few reasons. One, it’s simply the proper due diligence to look at all the possibilities just to make sure there aren’t any strange interactions between certain numbers (I didn’t make these, but this is a standard part of my personal process as well). For reference, the best way to do this is to make a symbol of each number, then set up a 10x10 grid showing each pair. Once you have that template, you can simply edit the ten symbols in the document and the pairs are basically generated for you. I feel it also helps guide equipment staff if you, as the designer, feel that certain pairings need more or less space between the two numbers or if you feel that certain pairings should be centered differently than others.

    Our next team also comes from the state of California. Bay United joined the APL in 1967 and have been an average team at best., always towards the middle of the western conference. They are named Bay United in an attempt to become "The team" of the bay area. This can be seen throughout their identity with pieces from the major cities in the area. Bay United is unique in that they are the only team in the APL that plays in multiple cities. Of their 19 home matches 15 are held in San Francisco but there are two games held in both Oakland and San Jose. This has become very popular with supporters who try to outdo each other when a match is in their city. Bay united has a very strong following despite not being a very dominant team most years. Bay United is generally liked by most other teams with the exception of a few; Las Vegas, Seattle, and of course the "California Derby" against Atletico LA. Bay United's crest is a combination of symbols of the three main cities in the area. The team colors are from the San Jose flag, the tree represents Oakland, and the Golden Gate Bridge represents San Francisco. Below the tree and bridge there is a wave representing the Bay and how the cities are connected with one team. Their home kit is a blue jersey with a wave pattern making hoops that fade the farther up the jersey they go, orange pants and blue socks. Their away kit is white with blue sleeves, pants and white socks, the jersey features a blue and orange vertical stripe. Their third kit is the "gold rush kit" it's simple with it being all black and the only color being from the logos and numbers which are gold.

    Utah Jazz With their last rebrand I think the Jazz got the zip code right, but have the wrong address. It's a good idea for a color scheme and going back to the ball note was the right idea, but they went too dark with the secondary colors. I brightened the green and yellow and the made the note a little more squat and less horizontal. Focused on giving them a striping pattern that would be instantly recognizable to them, inspired by a musical staff.

    I have all sorts of nostalgia for the Expos. I did not like the pinwheel hat, but I liked the jerseys of that era (and owned a replica powder blue as a kid). I loved their upgrade to a more traditional look. But I have to admit that the logo is bad. I always just thought it was something abstract and I don't think I thought of it as an "M" until I came to the boards. As an "M" it is, at best, overdone. It draws your attention too much to the three colors. You see a possible lower-case "e" and lower-case "b." Could the e be for expos (which is written with a lower-case e below on the jersey)? Could the "b" be for "baseball?" Add to that that ignorant Americans like myself also consider that there could be something french behind whatever letters may or may not be incorporated in that logo. In fact, i don't know. Is it just an "M?" Or is an an "M" that incorporates an "e" and/or a "b?" Regardless, it's too confusing to be a really effective logo. I like it...but probably because of nostalgia.

    When I worked for the Alaska (then Anchorage) Aces, the players had individual sponsors listed on the back under their number. Most were car dealerships, fencing companies, construction companies or stuff like that, but there was an argument every year about who would get to be "Mr. Prime Beef".

    I was never a fan of the Expos logo for anything other than nostalgia. It’s kind of a terrible logo if we’re being honest here. It’s similar to other logos bathed in the refreshing waters of nostalgia, like Bucco Bruce. That being said, it’s still a FAR more interesting logo than the Nats curly W.

    So why Baltimore Browns? An expansion team taking the same name as an existing team? Surprised we didn't have Carolina Colts or Jacksonville Jets then. No matter how "official" they try to claim it, I know what happened.

    The pretzel dub is fine for the hats, but they lost me when they put it on the chests. It's not strong enough to be the jersey identifier and sort of encroached on the Reds' territory by using placket piping, red hats, and a chest logo. I was a big fan of the old wordmark. Also I didn't remember this happening, but I guess it did - the Washington script and (superior) beveled numbers with gold inlays coincided for at least one season. They should still be using those numbers. They're still using that font, but without the bevels so now it just looks chubby.

    I think you're right - Getty Images had that marked as a 2017 image, but looking at it closely, I'm guessing it's from December 2015 against the Titans. That's definitely the pre-2017 template. Much better, though still a tiny bit off from the pre-Nike Jets' shade of green:

    No. That may come off as a bit of a rude response, but it’s all that came to mind. The classic Nebraska look should never change (pant stripe changes of the 90s exemted), especially the number font. IDK, I’m very defensive and picky about my team’ uniforms

    The EC is just annoying because for the past near-decade it literally just comes down to "Whatever Team Lebron is on". Nothing else has mattered. I'll at least give The Dubs credit they built up their team the right way (Drafting, good trades, etc.) Aside from Durant bandwagoning them.

    I've found that many, if not most, will only print 15 or 20+ sets of decals for customers. Pro-Tuff however, will do a sample size set, which usually includes 2 sets, for a premium. Nothing outrageous by any means (around $25), but more expensive on a per decal basis than if you buy in bulk.

    Here's another self-plagiarization from my volleyball series. This was from a Rockies concept from a couple years ago (https://www.behance.net/gallery/34497699/Colorado-Rockies-Brand-Overhaul) that I turned into a volleyball concept for a team called the Denver Miners I've never been a huge fan light blue for the Nuggets and now they've gotten so far away from the original idea that it's kind of lost its original spirit and intent. Also the rainbow stripes are a mess and I don't get why everyone loves them so much. The idea behind the original mark when I first made it was to resemble a beer label. For the Nuggets I went full Colorado.

    CLEVELAND BLUES This one's a bit more simple. The name references their colors and blues music, an ancestor to rock 'n' roll, hence the Flying V underneath the wordmark. C&C appreciated. Gonna try a Spiders one next.
