    These are so crisp and bold, really well done!

    Snow Day! Jim Kelly Illustration

    Buffalo has been shut down for days now after a mega blizzard... drawing Jim Kelly on snow days is turning into a tradition:

    Los Angeles Rams Confirm Throwback Uniforms For Super Bowl

    I actually prefer the white jersey to the blue one...the yellow sleeves juxtapose the white body super well.

    Thrift Store Gems 2019

    I plan on getting back into thrifting heavy this year... my first find of the year! Not my pic, but I nabbed this exact vintage Orioles Starter jacket, size large... looks like they sell anywhere from $70-150, nabbed it for $6

    Daytona Tortugas to open season with Hangover Night

    What an oddly arbitrary things to commemorate at a baseball game.

    Slack debuts new logo

    Down to four colors from eight, that's a plus

    2020 Election Logos/Branding Thread

    I love the accent over the A and the use of a gradient in the first two logos. There isn't a ton of room for "outside the box" elements in political designs, but I like those elements... looks like the standard political toothpaste motif is alive and well in the other two.

    Whatever happened to that "middle bar"-style facemask?

    I went through the entire thread to make sure nobody posted this mask yet and it was waiting in the very last post!

    Thrift Store Gems 2019

    I have scored a few Bills Nike shirts with player names in the collars in the late summer weeks, probably players who were just cut. I think individual players must do it instead of teams themselves because I have never seen a mass pile all at once.

    San Diego Padres 50th Anniversary Logo Leaks

    I mean, its cool... is it done? Lotta dead blue space.

    2019 NHL All-Star Game Uniforms Unveiled

    My gut reaction was to pan these, but I sorta liked when the NBA did an All-Star Game with everyone in their regular unis... this might not be the worst way to mesh a bunch of identities together in a cohesive way that is also marketable and popular as merchandising... I'm a sucker for the big NHL crest, but there are very few NHL All-Star unis I history I would say I like overall.

    Bengals Uniform Redesign

    I do like the idea of teams with bold color schemes tossing white aside altogether... orange on white really pops

    Logo upgrades that were actually UPGRADES

    Any attempts to "clean up" this enduring logo probably wouldn't be worth revoking its nostalgia... a classic!

    Different colors of jerseys and pants in baseball

    I almost can't think of an all-white football uniform I don't like. White-on-white in football looks so clean that it almost salvages all the modern Nike sets.

    Unpopular Opinions

    Love the now-old Titans set! The 13-year-old me became an instant Titans fan when they unveiled the look in '99. Absolutely butchered their aesthetic this go-round

    Some Sports Portrait Vectors!

    In the last few months, I have started branching out from just logos to portrait vector art... I haven't shared much work here lately, figured I would share a few highlights! Looking forward to growing in 2019!

    NHL COLOR RUSH by JB Designs (WPG added 2/11)

    This series is great so far... I am super impressed by how you were able to work in virtually every era in Sabres history and make it all feel so cohesive!

    One tradition you NEVER want to change

    In the 80's/early 90's, their navy blue had a tendency to read as black under the lights on SDTV's and in photography... I think the goal was to use royal blue to ultimately look like navy on TV (which explains the black & blue stripes on the white jerseys, which makes the blue pop a bit more)... the camera issue has been a non-factor for at least a decade, but the team is still clinging to the exact same look for some reason... my personal theory is that it gives the team two shades of blue for merchandising purposes.

    Safeco Field is now T-Mobile Park

    Nothing says "major league" like the nation's fifth-largest mobile provider.

    24/M looking for tips on freelancing

    I came in to write this. You may even find in time that this angle is both more rewarding and lucrative than client work.

    A lawyer could make a living solely representing CCSLC designers in cases of intellectual property law.

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 14

    What a sobering thought. I just hope they go with green lids to shoehorn in an 80's throwback... might soften the blow of whatever fire-emoji swag they wear as primaries.

    CFL Atlantic Schooners

    Really well-designed and presented... I love the bigger-than-normal-but-not-Cleveland-big wordmark, gives the design the right amount of modern.

    NFL REDESIGN (Bears update 1/16)

    I get some wanting to move away from the silver, but the Pats have been far too successful in it to whitewash it away... but the same probably goes for their current logo, too. This new logo is objectively well-designed, but feels like a change for the sake of a change. This set altogether is a really nice meshing of several eras!
