  1. New Romanian National Team Brand Identity

    Actually a pretty good identity now given the old one, but the fish on the bottom looks too weird and not like a fish unless you knew it was.
  2. Just a nitpick, but can you make your own logo as opposed to taking a piece of the Nugget's alternate logo? It's just pretty lazy
  3. When will lacrosse become mainstream?

    There's a lot of factors for lacrosse in order for it make it big IMO. For starters, it's still a preppy white kid sport. I've played for years now, and I've played with the typical preppy douchebag who wears too much Patagonia and Vineyard Vines, has the flow, goes to some super duper preppy private school, and will buy his way straight through life because of his family's extreme wealth. And the sad thing is, that can apply to a lot of the lacrosse community. In order for it to grow, equipment needs to somehow be less expensive, as the sport itself is crazy expensive, and needs help reaching out to communities unfamiliar with lacrosse, not the Long Island-Pennsylvania-Baltimore areas. Also, lacrosse itself is a hard sport to get any TV time. Obviously because it's still a less popular sport than others, but it's also harder to watch on TV. If you made someone sit down and watch lacrosse for the first time without them knowing anything, they'd have a rough time knowing where the ball is and how the sport goes. When you understand it, lacrosse can be a high intense, fun game to watch, but it's hard to make it marketable due to how small it is still. The MLL is barely competitive and pays its players very little (We're talking 10-20-30k here), the teams practice only usually once a week, nothing about it is serious. The NLL is even less well-paying, and although I actually prefer watching it to the MLL, you can barely find games to watch. College lacrosse is the only thing the sport's got going for them. As I've mentioned, lacrosse needs to try and grow out and expand. It's doing a relatively good job at doing that, it's starting to sprout on the West Coast, Colorado, and Texas, Utah is getting an NCAA program, so it's improving, but there still needs to be a lot more work to it. US Lacrosse and other organizations really need to endorse the sport to farther out areas as opposed to just keep on feeding it to the same dominant areas. It also doesn't help that every few years or so there is some big scandal that breaks involving some lacrosse team. The Duke lacrosse team rape scandal left a huge mark on the sport even if they weren't found guilty, the UVA player found who murdered his girlfriend also didn't help, and other smaller scandals that leave local imprints. It leaves a strong douche-y reputation on the sport. (As you can tell, I'm very passionate about this lol)
  4. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Good lord that number font is terrible. Other than that, it's a unique idea, gotta give them props.
  5. International Football 2017-2018

    Yeah, heading into the season I thought Chelsea and Man City were gonna be huge powerhouses, which it's still early to tell, but ManU is already showing that Lukaku is gonna be the best signing of the Premier League season (IMO).
  6. International Football 2017-2018

    I also don't think it helps that Spurs are playing at Wembley this season as well, as we already know their form when they play there. They should adjust to that, however. Meanwhile, Arsenal was embarrassed, although I will admit Jesé scored a nice debut goal...
  7. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    If only they would wear those at home, on the grey parking lot field that would be the ugliest looking game ever.
  8. International Football 2017-2018

    ARSENAL ACTUALLY WON A GAME ON MATCHDAY ONE HOW But in all seriousness, the game was pretty bad for Arsenal except for the short instances where Arsenal could actually get a shot off and score. Lacazette scoring within two minutes of his debut ain't too shabby, either. And Vardy was absolutely amazing this game.
  9. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    West Ham 3rd kit:
  10. I'm sorry, but most all of these logos and jerseys are really lazily done. The USA jersey is just a font with a number below it, the Canada "logo" is just a maple leaf, Brazil's is also quite lazy, Sweden's is just the three crowns, and South Korea's is just an S and a K. I would strongly recommend switching over to a design software like Inkscape or Illustrator and spend some more time on these.
  11. FBS Concept Uniforms

    I'm sorry, and I know you spent some time on these, but they are pretty rough and not great. It's a mixture of sloppiness, blatantly putting logos and wordmarks on everything, and overall just bad designs for a football uniform. What I would suggest is getting more comfortable with MS Paint, which is what I assume you're using, and taking notes on real life uniforms and applying that to your designs.
  12. Minor League Football

    I love how the Charleston Titans are literally two Spartan helmets put together to make the letter T. Now THAT'S design ingenuity. But that Iowa logo lol...
  13. International Football 16-17

    Yeah, why were they? I've been trying to look why but all the articles are in French. But it is nice to see such a racist and messed up fanbase go far down the ranks.
  14. Defunct company rebrands *REQUESTS TAKEN*

    Hang on how did you not know this company existed if you blatantly used its logo?
  15. Republic of Ireland Kits

    From far away, the kits look nice, but they're so zoomed out to see the details
