    NHL 2017-18

    I went to last years Winter Classic in St. Louis, and the Stadium Series games in Soldier Field and in Minnesota. For the St. Louis and Minnesota games I sat high enough to be able to see the game just fine. And for the Soldier Field game in Chicago I sat down low and couldn't see anything. But it's definitely all about the atmosphere for me. I'm a Blackhawks fan so it's been easy for me to go to an outdoor game for my team since there's so many, but I'd totally go to one if it was close enough and the Blackhawks weren't playing. If you have a chance to go to one, definitely go. If you want to see the game at all, try and sit as high as you can, but if that's not possible, just get the cheapest ticket you can and take it all in. The fan fest outside the stadium, the decorations on the field, all the sweet sweet merch.

    San Diego Seals (NLL)

    After a quick google search that's definitely what you were thinking.

    San Diego Seals (NLL)

    I helped Matt McElroy with that Seattle concept you're talking about and I thought the same thing when I first saw the San Diego logo. Turns it's not as similar as I thought it was in my head. https://dribbble.com/shots/1668804-Seattle-Sea-Lions

    LA Chargers

    So I saw someone point out today that the LA Chargers logo that made its rounds today is very sloppy and the alignment on it is atrocious. So in an attempt to fix that I got carried away and ended up just making something a lot better out of it. Enjoy

    LA Chargers

    Here are some of the other versions I explored while working on this.

    Oh my, good points. Guess I didn't look at it hard enough. Either way I'm still fine with the logo. I never hated the logo, I think people just hate it because of the situation, which is unfair to the logo.

    LA Chargers

    Fair points. Maybe later tonight or this weekend I can post some of the different variations I had while working on this. There are versions without the letter striping/breaks.

    NeatO Gang MLB Color Rush (24. Minnesota Twins)

    Ok so next up is the Minnesota Twins I really dig the Twins script logo and I like it in white like on their BP jerseys. I'm also a big fan of their old helmets and the hats they modeled after them for the All Star Game a few years ago, so I brought those back. I guess the one thing we didn't consider is the amount of teams that use blue

    NeatO Gang MLB Color Rush (24. Minnesota Twins)

    Sorry for the delay in posts. Real life and Thanksgiving and stuff got in the way. But I'm ready to resurrect this series... And I'll do so with one of my least favorite teams... Now, I've always been very Anti-Sox Socks because I'm a Cubs fan and it's what we do. I'm not a big fan of their current branding. It's not terrible or anything, and it's not my inner Cub, it's just aesthetically I don't care for it. But I am a fan of their past looks. Including this which I wish I would have worked into this concept somehow. I decided to merge their "softball" jerseys with their current colors. I like Swingy Stick Man And decided to go with a silver jersey as I don't think we had another team go with it. So in a MLB Color Rush full of red and blue, why not give the Sox Socks their own color? This one's for you CoCo. You my boy.

    NeatO Gang MLB Color Rush (24. Minnesota Twins)

    Working on them right now actually. Leaning towards black, although if I make a good enough white set maybe I can convince the guys that white is a color (colour for Matt)

    NeatO Gang MLB Color Rush (24. Minnesota Twins)

    NeatO Gang MLB Color Rush (24. Minnesota Twins)

    Hey there its Neato DyllO. Haven't posted on the boards in a while but Mike Dang-er strong-armed me into doing some MLB Color Rush concepts with him and the gang. So I made sure to call dibs on my World Champion Cubs. Essentially a blue version of their current away jersey, but I brought back Fat Bear from the 80's and put him on the sleeve and hat. Pretty straight forward look for the Cubs. I will get more adventurous with the other teams I do. Now that the Cubs don't make themselves look stupid I don't see any reason to do it either.

    Milwaukee Flag Getting Overhaul

    This is my favorite. That being said, I think it could use some tweaking.

    New Instagram Logo/Icon

    Here's their explanation. Makes a lot of sense and I'm a fan. "While the icon is a colorful doorway into the Instagram app, once inside the app, we believe the color should come directly from the community’s photos and videos. We stripped the color and noise from surfaces where people’s content should take center stage, and boosted color on other surfaces like sign up flows and home screens."

    NHL Adidas TechFit

    I'd hate to see a Hawks jersey that ditches the brand but the 4th jersey for Chicago is pretty awesome. As for Jj's suggestion about a Chicago flag themed jersey I'd kind of hate to see that. If you could reference the flag without leaving the Blackhawks brand, like the did on the Stadium Series jersey, that would be best.

    USMNT Kit Concept

    Yeah I'm not huge on the font either but the jersey designs are really nice. Shame that they couldn't have done something like this for real.

    NASCAR Sprint Cup Numbers

    Them's some good numbers Tex. It'd be cool to do this with like, I don't know... a hockey game or something. Seems up your alley....

    Flint Tropics Hockey - OHL

    So, a few weeks back, news broke that the Plymouth Whalers were being sold and relocated to Flint, Michigan. It was also said that there would be a fan vote for the new name of the team. Every article I read about this had tons of comments with people suggesting the name "Flint Tropics".... Why not that name? It comes from a popular and very quotable Will Ferrell movie which I feel would drive team popularity through the roof with casual OHL and CHL fans not only in Michigan, but North America as a whole. Semi Pro apparel and Halloween costumes have been popular since the movie came out in 2008. I love the identity of this team, even if it is fictional and ridiculous for a team in Michigan to be named anything tropical. I think a modernized version of this identity could translate nicely onto a hockey jersey so I wanted to give it a shot. I had a few early sketches for a very crazy third jersey and I needed a placeholder logo. I don't want to reveal that jersey just yet, but my quick little sketch logo actually looked like it would be perfect. It was a palm tree and doubled as a "T", so I've been playing with its shape and am looking for some C&C on the logo.

    2016 World Cup of Hockey

    They were probably looking for an excuse to get that thing out of whatever storage closet it's been in.
