  1. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    Don't count out the Cubbies. 1 win at Wrigley can change this series.
  2. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    I have class during the Cubs/Nats game today. Looks like I'm losing attendance points.

    Yeah, not really. I’m a Blackhawks fan.
  4. The UFL Project – #2 Miami Pirates

    Definitely going to be following this thread, as the original was one of my favorite concept series on the boards. Loving the Bobcats identity (although I'm not too sure what I think about that light blue alt) and story. Interesting they'd leave SF for Fresno. Nice work.

    Hawks Twitter was calling them the Crazy 8's (88,38,8)

    In Illinois the championship game has been all over the place. Lately, it's been at NIU however.

    "BUT WHY DOES EVERYONE HATE THE PENS???"
  8. Cleveland update looks good, helmet logos are a little too off center however, I'd fix that up. Also the template your using doesn't look that good in all black, maybe find a new one?
  9. I’ll second what PaperThin said. This is a personal series, take time and use your own logos it’ll come out much better and we want to see what you can do. On topic of CU, I think a pickaxe logo in an oval would be a much better helmet logo than CU. Try your skills at making a swinging pickaxe logo possibly.
  10. I'm lovin the premise of the series, you're getting creative with teams and their backstories and I have to say it helps build strong identities. Props to you on that. -On the ACFA logo, try to make the font italic. It might flow better. -Conference logos: While the names are fine, I'd revamp them all. For example look at real college conference logos (SEC, BIG10, ACC), they look fine (for the most part) on uniforms. I'd try to put some of them in circles or underline them. For the Rocky Mountain conference, I'd definitely keep the font inside the circle. -Jasper State: I like the identity but try adding more brown to the away jersey. Also the secondary mark makes me think of Pooh Bear, maybe invert the colors. -Grand Rapids: I'd switch up the font of the GRSU or remove it all together.
  11. Your Favorite Teams?

    From Chicago so it's pretty easy. All the Chicago teams. I come from a split White Sox/Cubs home (dad's side is all southsiders, mom's are Cubs fans) I really don't care what happens with the Sox since I'm a Cubs fan, but my dad's a pretty big fan so I wish them well.
  12. Ireland Baseball

    Update
  13. Ireland Baseball

    The World Baseball Classic this year was AMAZING and totally exceeded all expectations I had for it. I was listening to an interview with Dodgers' pitcher Brandon McCarthy, and he brought up the idea of an Ireland team. Obviously, the baseball presence in the country isn't strong, but McCarthy said they could probably put together a solid squad by using American born Irish players. This got me thinking about the possibility of Ireland in the WBC. I looked up Ireland baseball and saw that while they do have a team, their logos and uniforms are pretty ugly. So I hit the drawing board and whipped up this

    This is a great start for your first concept! A little C&C though -Make numbers a little bigger -Thin out the pant stripes -Move up the FGCU wordmark just a little on the jersey Also, if you save your images as .png on paint (I assume you're using paint), it makes it a better quality image than .JPEG and easier to visit if you need to edit. I'd also recommend downloading Paint.NET. Its a software similar to paint, but with more tools for customization. There are YouTube tutorials on how to use it, it's fairly similar to paint. Other than that, good start!
