  1. I was just going through some old threads looking for some inspiration for my own work and I came across this. Great set of unis and logos. Top notch work, hope you continue it soon! However . . . this Astros logo. I can't help but picture sexy lady legs hula hooping. Did anyone else pick up on this?

    MLB 2 Portland Concepts

    Insipid? I don't think that means what you think it does. They're maybe not "MLB" names, but you're talking about a league with A's, Reds, Giants, and Tigers. The majors don't lack for innocuous monikers.

    MLB 2 Portland Concepts

    Ooooops, don’t know why the text didn’t come through. Went to a Portland Diamond Project event today where six local designers presented concepts for a potential Portland MLB Franchise. Logos, hats, and uniforms. Great, creative concepts by everyone. Team Names - Portland Swifts - Portland Buds - Portland Pines - Portland Steelheads - Portland River Rats - Portland Californians, lol Pictures below:

    This. And for anyone wondering about “Buds”, it relates to the city on a few levels. Rose buds for the Rose City, smoking bud (yay, legal weed), and former mayor Bud Clark.

    MLB 2 Portland Concepts

    Yeah, forgot to upload it. Here ya go. Definitely the most creative, from a tongue-in-cheek perspective. These were all done for a fun / excitement building promo event. As far as I know, none of them are actually in consideration for the new team. That said, it was sponsored by the group trying to land a franchise in Portland so I don’t think it’s a given that any relocated team would keep their previous name. They’re clearly thinking about new branding. I liked the Pines name and uniforms a lot. The logo was almost too minimalist for me (and I’m a huge fan of the 70’s Blazers look). The Steelheads logo was superb, but the wordmarks and uniforms were pretty underwhelming. The Buds has a great concept, but I couldn’t get behind the colors, and I’m not sure I could root for a team called the “Buds”.
  6. Looks good! The jerseys, logos, and colors all work great together. I'm a bigger fan of "Option 2" because the face and swords are rendered nicely and the wordmark takes away from it a bit.
  7. It is really good. That's all I've got to say. Hope the kits are equally fetch.

    One tweak you’d make to a uniform you already like

    Why not just put the plane by itself on the helmets and the complete roundel at the center of the field?

    Austin Bold FC

    Bad logo, bad name, bad everything. Really interesting roster construction. A 15 year old local phenom, plus three mid-30's foreign (ex-)stars, plus potentially Usain Bolt . . . all for a USL team in a city that will be getting an MLS team in no time. Very strange.
  11. Tha'ts what I'm talking about. The purple jersey has the black side panel that carries down to the shorts. The yellow and white don't, but they still have shorts stripes. They should have picked one design or the other. The presence of the side panel on the purple jersey annoys me more than the color of the side panel.
  12. I like that the black stripe carries into the shorts. I don't like that the yellow (and presumably white) shorts will have a stripe that isn't carried up to the jersey. The inconsistency is maddening. TBH, I'd be fine with the black on the purple jersey if the white and yellow jerseys had a similar contrasting stripe. Yellow w/ purple stripe White w/ yellow stripe Purple w/ black stripe Not my first choice, but it strikes the balance of modern and classic, while remaining coherent and consistent.

    On the subject of the Lakers’ Giraffe

    I could see a Giraffe mascot, with a giraffe logo, but no real direct connection to the basketball team branding beyond that.
  14. Seriously.... That ugly ass jersey would much better on Jayson Tatum.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Good catch. I guess I'd never really seen that shoulder pattern with such contrast. Rumors are of all new designs, so I doubt these are any indication of anything.

    Newfoundland Growlers Unveil Uniforms for Inaugural Season

    Great logo. Wish that the article mentioned the designer or firm who worked on it, but alas, they almost never do.
  17. My theory is they added the black side panel so sneakerheads and hype beasts can better match it to their kicks.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Has this been talked about yet? Nike posting "Gridiron Grey 2.0" jersey for Oregon. Different shoulder and back graphics than the previous editions. Could be a teaser to the upcoming new Oregon unis? USC is the only other team with one of these GG2.0 jerseys, and it matches their typical template.

    One tweak you’d make to a uniform you already like

    1. Remove Black side panels

    One tweak you’d make to a uniform you already like

    - Remove gray stripe - Red/White collar and arm holes to match sash - Remove outline around number - Round the top of the 'A' in PORTLAND. (see below) Perfection.
  21. LeBron should have "LeBron" on the back of his jersey instead of James. He goes by his first name everywhere anyway. He's like Neymar or Ichiro.
  22. Portland, OR also has a "Jefferson Democrats" (Demos for short). My favorite though comes from central Texas: New Braunfels Unicorns

    2018 MLS Kits

    It really doesn't feel pointless in Portland, but hey, different fan bases, different times.
  24. I'm hoping for Milk Men just for the special uniforms.

    Report: Nike to Take Over MLB Uniforms in 2020

    So this pretty much confirms MLB in Portland by 2020, right?
