  1. 2018/19 Soccer Kits

    As a Villa fan i'm fascinated by this. Clearly fanatics have the facilities and to have someone in the fashion/apparel industry who is also a Villa fan as the principal designer is excellent. Looking forward to what they come up with.
  2. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    Why do you get to decide what a number outline is for? Clearly in this case the uniform designer has decided to use a number outline in a different way. Uniforms aren't just flat colours on a screen, nor are they only viewed from a long distance. Texture is incredibly important, and this is designed as a detail that works close up but doesn't muddy the extremely clean overall look they've opted for. I'm neither here nor there on the set, they're very plain, but the outline is a perfectly good feature.

    I think the outline stitching being the same black as the jersey is a cool textural effect and will help the numbers pop. No idea why it would be considered such a faux pas
  4. NBA Changes 2017-18

    It was really disappointing as a Spurs fan to have Nike come in promising 4 uniforms and seeing the alts as the already well established grey and camo based alts. I'd love to see an alt based on the Gervin era unis with the huge San Antonio wordmark in black outlined in white.
  5. 2017 Miami Dolphins Creative

    Great stuff here, I love the insight and I love the work you and your team do. Personally I follow all the Dolphins social media and I am consistently impressed by what you guys churn out. It's slick, it has that summery Miami feel, and it's always well executed. The content is terrific. When you switch to throwback mode the nostalgia hit is absolutely perfect. The off-field stuff is fresh and relevant. I really get that feel from the content that you're actively avoiding harking back to '72 or any sort of past glory and I think that's a terrific decision. Obviously the creative team can't control the onfield product, but we're incredibly well placed to take full advantage of any upswing in support from a successful season. The branding is perfect. I think the only real weak point from a visual perspective is the uniforms, and look, they aren't really even that weak. They were a strong upgrade on the previous set. They're just lacking a bit of character I guess.
  6. Owl Repurposed: Oldham Athletic Badge Redesign

    I don't think you can do an Owl for Leeds United. Sheffield Wednesday are known as the Owls and have an Owl on their logo, and are county rivals of Leeds
  7. The Worst Jersey Clash I've Ever Seen

    Cricket isn't such a big deal because nothing in the sport relies on you being able to tell a member of you team from the opposition. One team is batting and one team is fielding.
  8. NFL 2017 changes?

    That's fair. Overall I thought the Dolphins upgraded when they moved to their current set, it's clean and well on theme. It's hard not to get excited every time we see the throwback set though.
  9. NFL 2017 changes?

    I don't think you can use that particular Dolphins throwback logo full time in the modern era. However everything else about the design is so beautiful. The deep aqua and orange, the striping pattern which looks really slick on a modern cut football jersey. The socks. If I were building the next Dolphins set, i'd take the throwback jersey and socks as they are. I'd update the pants stripe to fit in better with the set, and i'd change the logo to something with a bit more character. The rest of it is perfection.
  10. NFL 2017 changes?

    I know we're 2 years into the throwbacks now, but god the Dolphins look so amazing in those throwbacks. You see heaps of them in the stands as well. Hopefully they go back to them full time before too long.

    Surely the warning label could be inside the helmet?
  12. US Cricket League - Beltway and Chicago logos open!

    As an Australian who loves his cricket i'm very keen to see what you come up with.
  13. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I was really hoping the Spurs would go for a Gervin era big San Antonio wordmark with black numbers. Disappointed with that concept if it's correct.
  14. Snapping Turtle Logo concept

    Okay, this is the next draft. I've darkened the outline blue, lightened the colour behind the tongue. and changed the eye a bit to make it a bit smaller, sharper, and hopefully a bit meaner looking
  15. Snapping Turtle Logo concept

    Thanks everyone for the feedback! I did definitely want him to look mean, and now that you've said he looks happy I can't see anything else haha! I'll work on the eye to try to make him look a bit angrier. I'm considering adding some scales to make the skin on the face look a bit more reptilian, but i'm conscious of overcrowding it. I wanted the shape of the head to be a bit spiky but I can definitely see how it reads as fur. I've darkened the outline blue a bit and lightened behind the tongue, it's definitely an improvement. I haven't made behind the tongue the same colour as the outline, because I felt that took away from the definition of the beak a bit too much. It's only slightly darker now and it looks better, thanks! I did initially try to work in the spiky shell of an alligator snapping turtle, but I couldn't think of a good way to get the panels looking spiky without making it look too busy for the style of the logo. I ended up going with more of a common snapping turtle, which doesn't have the spikes and is the actual state reptile of NY. I'll definitely have another go at the eye to make it look a bit meaner. Thanks for pointing out the tail, the reference images I used all had the tail obscured so I just assumed it was standard turtle tail. I'll totally rework that as well.
