    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 9

    You're a difficult victim.

    Pixelated HS Football Helmets

    Awesome! Reminds me of the good ol' days making my high school team on Techmo Super Bowl on the SNES

    Bad Jersey Sightings

    I also have this strange Frankenstein of a basketball/football jersey I scored on Spring Break in Honolulu 10 years ago:

    Old Beaver Logo Update

    I agree, the "not-looking-directly-at-you eyes" do give off more of a heroic vibe... I might even try exaggerating how "up-and-away" they're looking to cash in on the awesome campy-ness of a muscular college beaver... a super well done design!!

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 9

    I would argue the team's current look is their worst ever. The whole set is loaded with superfluous elements. The white jersey still uses black stripes to make the blue striping pop, which was helpful in the days of SD TV's, but is needless today... the stars on the blue jersey sleeves reek of "it's the 90's, tack the logo on for merch purposes" and bordering white numbers with a 2nd layer of white feels redundant and cluttered. Beyond that, I personally dislike that Dallas insists on their generic, slightly-too-large block numbers and boring solid blue socks... all those elements together seem worse knowing they mothballed perfection in their Staubach-era unis.

    Bad Jersey Sightings

    I had a custom jersey made of QB Rob Johnson in 2003, while he was on the Washington Redskins. He was literally cut from the team the day after I placed the order.

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    I'm not sure if this is the case, but out of all the retail suppliers, Puma was the only one where their retail "authentic" jerseys matched the actual game-worn jerseys almost perfectly. I used to own a game-worn Bills jersey by Puma from 2000, along with the retail version from the same year, and the materials and print quality were identical, just a different cut... unless Ripon just made the store "authentic" jerseys for Puma, too?

    Kevin Dyson Logo

    Set an hour aside at the end of the work week to design something fun... even if he had a short run, he's one of my all-time favorites!

    Washington Warbirds: A New Era for the Wizards Franchise

    This would make bank as a Kurt Angle t-shirt!

    Non-sports logos that could be good sports logos?

    This is every high school track team ever's logo, but it just works.

    NFL Unveils Logo for 100th Anniversary Season

    I remember the 100th anniversary season being discussed on this site a while back and (probably) Brandon Moore predicted a design that wouldn't focus on the past so much as a "looking to the future, here's to 100 more" style design... (probably) he was right on the money.

    NFL Unveils Logo for 100th Anniversary Season

    This should help silence those "the NFL is turning into flag football' types nicely.

    49ers Throw It Back to the 94ers, Unveil Alternate Uniform

    Good on Steve, it does make a huge difference. One of the defining negatives of 90's/00's unis was teams tacking logos onto their sleeves. It really flipped things from "we can sell fans what the players wear" to "let's dress the players in branded gear we can sell to fans." A pretty great idea business-wise, but not aesthetically.

    49ers Throw It Back to the 94ers, Unveil Alternate Uniform

    On the left was a reasonable refresh (or did Steve just crop the stripes off altogether?). On the right was gaudy, sign-of-the-times overkill. In either case, the presence of black in the 9ers identity was/is completed unnecessary.

    Introducing: Grace Football League (Edmond added! 5/8)

    I always struggle with highlights, but it looks like you kept the light source consistent throughout, which is great... I might "smush" the lion head to be a little less tall, but the color scheme and balance is nice! I'd personally like that logo on an orange helmet.

    Introducing: Grace Football League (Edmond added! 5/8)

    One thing I've learned about design is that I don't need to be interested in the actual subject to appreciate quality design. Based on the quality of the league logo, I will be checking back in on this thread... there are lots of cool religious-themed sports logos at the college level, should be a cool project!

    What is the rarest color in sports?

    The Fins or Bolts could 100% shuffle pink into their identities... would be a great move for the Chargers especially, as they fight for footing in LA.

    Geoffrey's Toy Box (aka Toys R Us)

    FAO Schwartz did the same thing in Macy's, which is now also closing... there is certainly too much value in the brand to let it sit dormant, but using it this way will hurt that value.
  19. Over the past week, I have posted a few of these logos and they seemed to go over well, so I decided to run with the theme... each logo is inspired by an NHL team, but designed for a mini-mite-level kid's hockey team. Every logo is a work in progress, so feedback is appreciated! All designs from this set are available at: https://www.teepublic.com/user/csquared Up first is Pittsburgh:

    (+WAS 4/7) C-Squared's "Lil' NHL" Concept Logos (9/32)

    Wasn't sure where to post this, so why not bump a two-year old thread? I do plan on starting this concept back up sometime soon... my Penguins logo has been selected by 26 Shirts for their next Pittsburgh fundraiser! https://26shirts.com/collections/pittsburgh/products/pittsburgh-vol-4-shirt-3-short-stuff

    NFL REDESIGN (Bears 11/16)

    A slightly tweaked version of the current logo (on the black helmet with no border) with everything else the same would be perfection!

    Dunkin' Donuts,err wait just Dunkin'

    I must be the only one who doesn't hate it. The full name honestly hasn't aged well, and doughnuts aren't the most marketable product in 2018. Its not like the brand plunges into ambiguity by simply being called "Dunkin." Its a pretty solid balance of pushing the brand forward without betraying its core identity.

    Alliance of American Football - Team Names and Logos

    That seems to be a running theme with new sports leagues. They want to standardize everything for the launch and don't realize how they handcuff designers in the process.

    Another Set of Basketball Logos!

    I am creating logos for a series of new semi-pro basketball leagues in Buffalo, NY... the logos won't see a ton of use outside of uniforms, so shoehorning basketballs in wasn't crucial... just finished the first two for the men's and women's leagues that will sort of run concurrent thematically, just hoping for a few extra sets of eyes to make sure I didn't miss anything... any feedback is appreciated!!

    95% chance I buy an Apollos t-shirt regardless of whether I ever watch an AAF game.
