    A great concept. I personally do not like this purple too pure. Maybe a darker one would be an improvement. Other minor tweaks could be done in the alignment of the document and in the blending mode of the text, like in the cover, where they don't match with the background.
  2. Então, Jhonas. Umas sugestões de um brasileiro que está aqui há oito anos. Nunca comece sem nada. Traga algo ou a galera não vai te dar atenção. Uma identidade visual bacana já na abertura, um texto bem formatado. Você precisa de um diferencial. Se você começar sem nem sequer um logo bacana (o seu logo só tem texto, isso não chama a atenção não, desculpa), a galera vai te ignorar. Os BRs por aqui estão também na Fedeeração dos Mockups: https://federacaodosmockups.forumeiros.com. Outros brazucas aqui, apareçam para dar as boas vindas! @Elece_CP @OlavoP @brunoSkochak

    "Desecrating" the NFL

    What's better to honour Halas than a jersey inspired in one of the jerseys he wore?

    The Principality of Lisander

    American Football, or Football, as you prefer, comes next. There isn't that much stuff. I based Lisander uniforms in the uniforms of Washington State University, just to have good images in Nationstates posts. It will be one who will need a complete overhaul probably.

    The Principality of Lisander

    No one but me liked. It was too much outside the box.
  6. I didn't like it this time. As a design piece it's nice and works like a charm, but it's lacking in meaning. Your team is named primarily "Stade" (as you refer it), but you're emphasizing "Leuven" instead in the logo. I'd maybe enlarge the name, putting it in the second line with Leuven. The crown on the logo does not represent a Royal (Koninklijke) Crown. It's more like a princely one. I'm not buying that green, it looks unexpressive to me. Are you sticking with a CMYK palette? Otherwise than that, you says the team was founded in 1903, but the logo says 1913. PS.: Noticed you updated RDC and RRC logos, and they are even more gorgeous!

    The Principality of Lisander

    2004-2005 Discontent with Nike work (mainly catalog shirts), the FLF broke the six-year contract and knocked on the door of the rival Adidas, delivering in a silver plate the opportunity to make the special uniform for the 100th anniversary of the national team. The home shirt turned white, with 3-stripes in gold, and again the 1974 logo returned to the shirt. A survey among fans pointed to this as the most beautiful national shirt ever used. 2006-2009 In 2006, the partnership with the three stripes had a troubled time. After a first very special collection, the German company made three identical uniforms for Lisander just changing the colours. Some judged lack of originality. The German company has apologized saying it was ''standard'' and what was stipulated in the contract. The federation accepted the shirt and lasted until 2009. This uniform also won two IAFF Cups, 2006 and 2008. 2010-2013 The third place in IAFF Cup 2010 came with another set of uniforms from Adidas. Again, the team had his uniform treated with maximum detail by the supplier. The first choose brought stripes in two shades of green, and the second had pinstripes in light gray, and green shoulders. A graphic on the inside of the shirt appeared in the two jerseys. 2014 The failed union of all National Sports Federations around the new National Sports Confederation (see 2014 hockey jersey above) brought together a new symbol for all sports. This symbol which was premiered at the IAFF 2014, when the team fell in the quarterfinals. The first shirt sleeves brings a darker, tone of green jersey, elusive for 2004. Second is white with a pattern of irregular stripes in light green. 2014 is the last year of this series. After that, Lisander wore four more uniforms. 2016 The first title of UNAF International Cup came in 2016 came with a very green jersey indeed, without other details than simple horizontal stripes. 2017 The team had two sets of uniforms. One, made by local brand NEO, was used in NationStates Olympics. The other, made by Adidas, would be used primarily in IAFF Cup, which switched to odd years. The images of that are very bad, since Lisander refused to participate of the competition. A mock-up of the second jersey appeared on the internet but was not confirmed. Last but not least, the current 2018 UNAF International Cup jerseys. The event still not occurred, but the jerseys were already revealed. The pre-2014 crest is back. New additions are the star for 2016 UNAF International Cup and the shirt patch of the current champion. The home jersey (made in actual Condivo 18, as uniforms of 2018 FIFA World Cup) is based on 1990 Hummel jersey, with a Fleur-de-Lis pattern running along the chest. The second jersey is white, with the same pattern, but in three colours, appearing on the hem. The logo and the chest number feature in a gradient. And it concludes the Association Football Uniforms. It is also a showcase of my evolution as an uniform designer. Some C+C is appreciated, especially on the last one I just finished. Tomorrow, or maybe the day after, the next National Team.
  8. You have a nice concept here. I like the logos, but I'm not sure about having "2" and "Matricule 6" on them. It looks unnecessary to me. Maybe adding some stones to the crown of RDC and the name Brussels to the lower part of RRC. If you are interested in templates, I suggest you give a try in creating one. The most common around is from Raysox, but it's sadly outdated. The designs are from 2016-17 catalogs. With a good supply of photos, jersey designs and reference drawings, you can do better jerseys. BTW, do you think you'll have some game simulation/results generation? If not, your topic will be probably moved to concepts area. My current project was moved for the same reason.

    NCAA court database

    Awesome as usual. The alignment is perfect and the details are superb. I have a doubt. Do you use the team colors as provided by Colorwerx or from Media Guides to find the right tones to the courts? When they're not available, what do you do?

    Unbranded Basketball Template

    As you may have seen, I'm working in my Nationstates nation for some days. But during the day, while I'm at work, I don't have access to it. And in my job, after a huge amount of work, we sometimes have a "little-to-none work" day. This is the result of my "little-to-none work" day today. Still in early stages, without elaborated logos, patches, mesh or stunning details like jersey cuts. Some criticism is appreciated. When I have a final version, I plan to release it in a proper SVG or AI.

    Allsvenskan (Swedish Soccer) Redesign. [Updated 30/7]

    Clearly evolving the execution. I think the quality of the team crest may improve, they look messy. You also should give a try on some textures and extra graphics. Your template is limited so you'll need to difference it in some way, to avoid that look of "paint bucket tool concepts".

    Allsvenskan (Swedish Soccer) Redesign. [Updated 30/7]

    The idea is nice, but the execution is poor. If you're using Paint, I suggest you to use Word to reduce the size of the logos. It will give a better result. A long time ago I made a Tutorial , but probably you'll need to translate it (unless you know Portuguese). Also, get a new set of fonts. Windows fonts screams "Uncreative".

    The Principality of Lisander

    Following with the Repost of Uniform History, we reach one of most "striking" eras in football jerseys. 80's and 90's. 1983 - 1987In the 80s, bad results, combined with the growth of rugby made football fall in importance and number of fans. Completing the scenario,the bankruptcy of Admiral in 1982 left the team without supplier. And the bad phase did not attract other brands. A small national brand called Oxygen began to produce for the national football team. Both shirts come with highly innovative artwork for the season. In 1986, numbers were used in front for first time. 1988 - 1989 The periodicity to launch uniforms came with Hummel. The Danish company has released the first set of uniforms in 1988. Was used only in 1988 and 1989 in games against Lorenthia, Teroaz and Alice Bay. It was the first time since 1975 that the shirt back to its traditional green tone. 1990 - 1993 For the IAFF Cup in 1990, when Lisander got a heroic qualifying, but lost in the quarterfinals, Hummel created bold uniforms. The shade of green was totally new, and the shirt won a new symbol (the fifth) and white shirt was replaced by a yellow one. The federation was not pleased with the following proposal and contract with Hummel was eventually scrapped in 1992.'s Shirt was used until the following year. Later, this jersey turned into a "must" for hipsters and football aficionados in the nation. 1993 - 1997 Umbro was asked to produce the uniforms for IAFF Cup 1994. The national team lost again in the quarter-finals, but the shirts were absolute sales success. In an unprecedented tone green and bringing back the crest used in Admiral shirts, shirts followed the logic of the era as the graphics, but in a more discreet manner that Hummel. Unfortunately, with the end of the contract, Umbro has not produced any more to Lisander. 1998 - 2000 We are in 1998 and Lisander is current (1996) IAFF Champion. The National Federation signs with Nike one month before the start of 1998 IAFF Cup. This jersey gave bad luck. The team have lost 2 matches and tied 1, and were not qualified to quarterfinals. This jersey was used until summer of 2000. 2000-2003 In 2000, Uniforms changed again, this time for a completely green shirt, just with golden details, like the uniforms some teams for Euro 2000. This uniform was used until 2003, and won the title in 2002. Next post is the last one in National Football Team, spanning over the last fourteen years (2004-2018).

    The Principality of Lisander

    Fair. I only plan to simulate something when I finish the cycle of national teams. I'm still thinking about doing other nations in Lisander universe. Pittsburgh Pirates. I was an awful designer back in 2013.

    The Principality of Lisander

    Noticed it was moved to Concepts. I'm not sure why, but I should receive some message. Probably they do not think I have some kind of backstory. Okay. Association Football comes next. This is a long, long repost, with some additions in the end, since I didn't have late uniforms made in the style of earlier ones. The History of Lisander Football National Team Uniforms, Part 1 1904 - 1930 The foundation of National Federation in 1904 marked the beginning of organized football in the country. However, the first teams to approach the concept of national team were made up of players from various teams in nation, which faced the national champion, usually in a festive date after the end of the national championship. The shirts, in the English fashion, were white and had the arms of the Principality. There are only two of them in good condition today. 1930 - 1967 From the 1930s until the year 1967, the Lisanderian National Teams used green shirts with gold collars and cuffs. In the chest, a gold Fleur-de-Lis. During this time, the position of the Fleur-de-Lis varied because the shirts were purchased at retail and sewn. The need for a light shirt that contrasted with the dark uniform of the opponents made the team adopt a white shirt with green collar and cuffs as a second uniform. 1967 - 1974 In 1967, National Football Federation created its own symbol, which consisted in adding the initials FLF to the shield that had been used in previous shirt. The white shirts with golden sleeves were lucky, but would soon be left out, with the first apparel contract signed by Federation. 1975 - 1982 From 1975 until the 1982 World Cup, the national team wore uniforms provided by Admiral, who at that time also wore Belgium, Saudi Arabia and England. The green in these uniforms was darker than had been used before, as well as gold. These jerseys also brought a new crest. And this completes the first of three parts of Association Football. Tomorrow, I'll have from 1983 to 2000.
