  1. They did it at the NFL draft too For reference, this is the ACTUAL wordmark
  2. the browns didn't have a helmet stripe, y'all. Am I missing something?
  3. A few years back, in fact I think maybe even last year, I redesigned my middle school's logo. Since then, I've improved a lot in my design, and as such, I feel that skill should be used in doing more than *conceptual, and somewhat crude* political logos. Before I try to push action forward for our school to change its logo, shown --> HERE <--, I wanted to run it by the most trusted source for critique of conceptual sports logos on the internet! Please let me know what you think and further edits and fixes are on the way. (deleted image)
  4. accidental post, but why I'm here....

    Jets Uniform Concept By Kong Tom

    Like the Lions? I'd say got the more traditional way and put it on the front of the uniform, above the numbers. Having it on the side is kind of redundant for the Jets specifically, who use their team name on their helmet

    Jets Uniform Concept By Kong Tom

    I didn't really mean it as a compliment. The original idea was so abhorrent that you couldn't possibly have done better. DM me for some sports fonts or something, as what you have is, in fact, the 3rd worst number font for a sports uniform (excluding actual sports fonts, such as the Bucs). The statue of Liberty is so dumb and shoehorned that for it to work in the slightest, it would have to be larger and sublimated, as to still be significant and nowhere near as jarring. Also, the 'sash' is ugly. Objectively ugly. However, with what (I imagine) being your original idea, I doubt it could be much better I do like is the use of 2 greens.

    There’s no possible way to improve this.

    I did a thing, y'all!

    So I think I'm going to post random sports-related things I'll do in my spare time to this topic, because I mean I don't want to flood the board with topics but I want to at least put out what I've done. Speaking of original content, I did a thing inspired by (and some logos ripped from) @Silent Wind of Doom and his Sports signature topic and I made a playoff bracket from it yeet I apologize for those with 4k monitors, as I'm sure this hell with 100% magnification Did you laugh or did you lose? Comment below and make sure to SMASH that like button for more random stuff I do in the future

    We have a podcast? Also, darn. He was probably my favorite non-concept creation user on these boards. I hope he can get reinstated Never mind, yeet

    I did a portrait of Larry Bird!! Taking requests!
  15. Welp, that took a while. It's come to my attention that out of the 3 people who only post baseball stuff (Looking at you @coco1997 and @Carolingian Steamroller), the titular character of this series seems to be the one everyone gushes over. For example, this is my personal belief of what would happen if all of us were to meet up: Anyways...... Because I'm petty, I would like to say I'm going to be the best proverbial Mario Kart ghost by making POUND FOR POUND the best concepts this board has EVER seen! Believe me, folks, when I say it's gonna be the best, its going to be the BEST. Okay, maybe not. I'm not all that put together and I think I just gonna do this in the laziest way possible, but I'm not sure yet. I'm going to try really hard to make this better than everything else I've done before. Also some notes before we jump in: I WILL NOT do a part 2 like @SFGiants58 did, as I just don't want to. I WILL NOT change the divisions or add teams like @SFGiants58 did, as I just don't want to. (This one I may change, as I think Montreal could get the h-town treatment) I WILL make fun of people. I think. Maybe. I'm afraid I'll be mean and get banned for a week I WILL be going out of order, as I have some stuff already saved. I WILL finish this series if this is the last thing I do. and lastly, I MAY add in depth analysis for why I made my concepts the way I did. AND WE'RE OFF!

  16. *sigh* as long as I’m at this creative roadblock, might as well reply. Paragraph by paragraph, because I’m petty and also on a road trip. My goal was never really to think of things that would be acceptable in our current state, this project is more of a mental exercise for me. As someone who has intentions of going into this line of work, I feel that doing things like this, pushing the envelope, is what I need to progress, not only as a designer of uniforms, but logos and wordmarks, as well. I do know about the 1956 uniforms, and how poorly they were received. However, if I felt that it was necessary to go with something that could be seen as a real-world design, I wouldn’t do anything to the birds on bat look, except maybe put “St. Louis” on the away uniform. I’m not denying how integral the birds on bat look is to the current cardinals identity, rather exploring ways to portray such an iconic franchise in a new way. I understand why it may not be the best look to Cardinals fans or baseball traditionalists, but I tried my best not to copy an existing look yet still preserve elements from their existing design, even if I went to drastic measures to do so. Okay everybody, listen to this hot take: the pullover era of baseball gave us some of the greatest uniforms of all time, in any sport. And the reason for that specific N/W/R/W/N look is because it’s based off an “untouchable” uniform’s sock pattern. I would’ve been fine with a simple red stripe, or none at all, in fact it would’ve been easier. However, I wanted to find a way to find a balance between exentricity and sensibility, but I suppose it may have been a little too much. This is completely valid. The only reason I didn’t use it was because of laziness (a fantastic trait for someone who wants to go into a field in which every tiny detail is important, I know) and that I had already finished most of the concept without realizing it wasn’t the angled “T” I’ll admit that neither are my best work. For the home alternate, I didn’t have an idea so I just copied a design from a series I did back in 2015. Probably could’ve come up with something better for the away uniform, as well. And since you brought those kids baseball sets up, I can totally see it and I’m kicking myself for it. Show me a blue cardinal and I’ll do it. That’s fair, but I did try to update it the best I could without giving it a brandiose treatment. And for what it’s worth, I updated the wings and feet (one of them at least looks good). Thank you for your your honest feedback, and you did make some decent points. I’ll make sure to update my cards concept the best I can when i get the chance

    Hockey beyond the Iron Curtain...

    Easily one of the coolest ideas for a concept series I’ve seen in a while, and the way you’re doing it is really creative. I’m in love with this already, and the logo looks fantastic, reminds me of Marvin the Martian for some reason
  18. well that's,,,,,,,, disappointing. If it's real.
  19. hey y'all! I'm so terribly sorry about this but I think I might need to take a little break. For some reason, this idea came over me that I needed to be able to draw a triceratops to continue with this, also some other personal stuff may have contributed. I have some stuff for y'all who didn't like the concept I put out, made it special. No but seriously, here ya go here's something better for that I hope you guys understand, and thank you so very much for humoring me on this journey so far.
  20. Here's the numbers moved up, it does look more authentic First off, a bird on bat. I see your culture and I do you one better. I make stuff. And I make the hell out of it. Here's an updated swinging bird (I like it) and I'll come back to this for a bird on bad thing at some point idk. Home and away was quite a depature from their normal sets. I went ahead and saved myself the trouble of effort by instituting some striping consistency from the socks (they're pretty). As for the alternates, I really didn't feel like making a throwback... to one of their uniforms. HOWEVER, I did throw back to my first baseball series (utterly terrible, check it out here) and ripped my cardinals concept. As for the other one, it's red. What else is there to say. I need a better design process, yanno? Like, these are fine and everything, but if I want to catch SF, then I'm going to need reasons beyond "it looks cool"
  21. I really need a hug, you guys.

  22. Wahington Nationals: Return of the Bevel Okay, so when I was talking to my girlfriend, I was ranting about sports logos (as you do to your girlfriend, who in turn will rant about something she finds fascinating), and I eventually got around to talking about the Washington Nationals. This discussion also talked encompassed the messy and really really dumb history of Washington baseball, and it occurred to me that nothing like this has happened in professional sports. 4 different teams, all using 2 names, yet none sharing a history or pulling a Browns. They have, however, shared logos. The Curly W has always been at the top of my list to reinvent; for example, in that previously mentioned discussion, I showed her the current W and we both remarked that it looked similar to Walgreen's. Doesn't mean it's bad, I just feel like it could maybe look, a little more unique. Therefore, I reintroduced the bevel with an updated 2005 script, along with a slightly different primary (mainly the scroll thing) and made a new W. Home and away was pretty simple. It is a combination of their current striping pattern and their 2005-2010 look. The alternates were more fun. When I was going through the old Nationals/Senators uniforms for a potential throwback, I stumbled upon the 1956-1958 set that Uni-Watch made a column about, the one with the 3-d numbers. I named the set the "Damn Yankees" set, as something similar was featured in the Broadway play/movie Damn Yankees! The other alternate is red, because I like the nationals being a red dominant team.
  23. I took liberties on the coloring
