  1. You can add my local team Tranmere Rovers to that list too, so with them being a 5th tier side you can assume that this template will be used all over the place and not just for the top teams. I own the new shirt and I'm not a huge fan of the chevron gradient thing but blue on white seems to be a better combination than some of the others I have seen. To be honest, I am glad that Puma have gone away from the template/cut of the past few season of having a stripe along the top of the sleeves. I got kind of bored of that.
  2. Interesting to know and a well timed "Paul Stanley" or "Cleveland Rocks" always goes down well with me.
  3. Greggie Midnight.
  4. ...or is it that he comes out with so many thoughts and ideas, that every once in a while he is statistically bound to come up with a good one?
  5. I have seen the same one before. It's reassuring to know that it's not just me. As you say, it's oddly specific and not really that relevant.
  6. The reason for the anger was because the design was changed/moved without consulting the Hillsborough Justice Campaign first. I believe the families support group were consulted though. I don't think they hold any particular preference to one design or place, although it seems obvious that any design should be centred around the eternal flame, so long as it is represented somewhere. Like Gothamite says, the design could theoretically be tweaked because the symbolism of the flames is what is important and not the current logo itself.
  7. Not to worry. I'll check some things within the app and see if it fixes things - it's helpful to know that other apps are working. Like you say, thankfully they are plenty of alternatives.
  8. So I've been having some technical issues with the podcasts on my incompetent phone recently which I will put in a spoiler below. It's not the absolute worst thing in the world as I have been able to catch them on youtube from my PC with no real inconvenience. Great shows as always.
  9. From what I've seen on your portfolios, posts here and twitter I've seen that you're a big motorsport fan. What is your favourite F1 paint job for this coming season? ...and favourite current and all-time F1 drivers? Also, you have posted about your college education but prior to that what was it that gravitated you towards graphic design? Is there a particular moment or person you remember that inspired you to make this career choice? Has creating logos, uniforms, posters etc. been something you have always had an interest in from an early age?
  10. Just throwing these last four teams out before the real racing begins this weekend. No shocks anywhere here. ^ Awesome update in real life from Toro Rosso. No need to change anything in my eyes. ^ Haas with a decent update on a solid look which really grew on me during 2016. Again, very subtle changes if any. ^ Same again, unsurprisingly. Not a fan of the drivers race suits so I had the polo shirt styled like this and the idea was to go with black pants. ^ By no means perfect from Sauber but a nice look to commemorate 25 years in the sport. ^ Manor Racing has passed away. RIP u will live on forever. Cant believe it. I wanna run to u. Really cant believe this. @
  11. So they have ditched the above look and gone with a pink livery thanks to new sponsor BWT. I'm not a big fan to be honest but I will at least wait to see it out on track before I pass full judgement. In a similar fashion, the shark fins don't look too bad on the circuit but were a big shock when first seeing them in the HD release photos. Williams Not much see with Williams, just a return to what they have in real life and inclusion of a shark fin. The Martini livery is one of my favourite in motorsport. McLaren So for 2017 McLaren have finally returned to a classic orange look. This is no doubt a popular choice with F1 fans on the face of things as recent years have been pretty uninspiring. However, when the car was revealed a lot of people were comparing the look to that of several recent back markers. Manor/Marussia, Virgin and Spyker for example. For me, a big reason for this is the white lines between the orange and black. I decided to ditch these and also reduce the amount of black on the bodywork and move it to the front and rear wing end plates. The team apparel has also been altered to suit this. 4 more teams to go. No surprises coming up really, so these shouldn't be too far off. Bonus concepts will begin after that.
  12. I can't wait to see the "smart matte finish". The drivers helmets will be changed to feature pink too. Not sure to what extent but they have really embraced this new change at Force India that's for sure.
  13. Ferrari So, I was delighted to see the design Ferrari used on their shark fin. It was something I had put into my original concept harking back to this era. Again, I removed the large Scuderia Ferrari logo from the engine cover. I don't think it's a terrible logo itself, just don't like it when it's placed there. Force India So, I really don't like the direction Force India are going in. They had a chance to make orange and green their signature look. They started out that way but seem to move further away from it every season. Now, with McLaren returning to orange, I decided to create an Indian identity with a different approach. I took the shades of blue that the Indian cricket team use and went from there. I put the Indian flag design onto the shark fin, because why not, and altered the shape of it slightly. Overall, it kind of reminds me of Gulf Racing liveries which can't be a bad thing, right? Williams and McLaren up next... hoping to have them posted this week some time.
  14. Back with updates. Most of the grid is now finished so I will be posting a couple of concepts at a time. Then after that some bonus ones if any interest remains. I have included my original idea with the updated concept below. Mercedes So the updates to the 2017 car are pretty minor compared to the 2016 car but I do quite like the new design on the turquoise area of the car. The turquoise of Petronas and silver of Mercedes work well together so there wasn't really much need for change. A subtle update was the right decision, so I tried my best to recreate it. Again, removal of black from the engine cover and no shark fin or T wing. Red Bull So, another car where they have just moved their old livery onto the new 2017 design with some slight changes and that is satisfactory. Again, I have tried my best to just recreate it as I don't deem any changes necessary. A simple attempt at a shark fin here too.
