  1. My take on the Thunder...
  2. Well, perhaps my thought process isn't welcome on this forum. I think my effort was to try something that I haven't yet seen, try to come up with a new idea. So, from here in out I will just post my concepts because that's a good step for me.
  3. So, I hate it when pro sports teams give little thought to their logos. Have you ever noticed that some teams out there try to change but take a big step back? Or maybe there's some out there who haven't changed una long time, but it's obvious that the look isn't picking up patina or growing into vintage status. With this is mind, I've decided to create a "phoned in" soccer league. It is made up of teams from the four major leagues whose looks are uninspired, do not connect to the local city/culture, or have become more "blah" with time. Why a soccer league? Because, as is recently apparent on this board, soccer leagues allow for maximal creativity, and often encourage localizing the look. There's also a higher ceiling for "overdoing" it. This is a crossover series, but perhaps if a different sort. So, the first step is to ID the teams. While it is definitely my opinion that these teams need more inspiration or local flavor, I'm also taking into account my observations of years following this board. These teams tend to be the ones I've seen which get a little more effort added in their concept league, or in some cases I've noticed entire posts dedicated to these teams. I've come up with some, but would also like feedback on additional teams you believe have "phoned in" looks. Here's my list: MLB san Diego padres detroit tigers tampa bay rays colorado Rockies NBA brooklyn nets la clippers detroit pistons indiana pacers oklahoma city thunder NFL kansas city chiefs Arizona cardinals NHL Dallas Stars what do you think of this list? Any additions to be made? Designs forthcoming will be hand drawn, as I have no access to fancy software. thanks! Feedback much appreciated! Here is the first in my crossover series: Brooklyn Nets. This is an organization that could use a little more interest. My biggest beef with their current set is probably that it's a little too simple. My second issue is that there's not a clear connection to New York. I addressed these two issues by adding shades of black/grey, as well as making a crest with stylistic nods to the New York Cosmos. The home kit is an ID to the "checkered"uniform the Brooklyn dodgers wore for a time, and also is meant to evoke a soccer net. The right half of the crest is meant to evoke a ball going into a net. Enjoy!
  4. Very well on the dallas stars. They are kind of on the border for me. I agree that the NHL does it right with most of their looks! I do know that some on this board have attempted to Texify the Stars a little bit.
  5. My thinking is taking into account the entire look/set, not just the logos. And I should note that my intention is not to out any of the looks, but perhaps give a little more inspiration. For example, the San Diego padres have made many changes recently, but not much in my opinion that helps them stand out.

  7. team reveal

    Credit needs to be given to the former dallas desperados of the afl...this is not an original logo.

    Ummm...did anyone mention that this logo is not yours? Dallas Desperados
  9. The compass rose is great. I actually didn't realize you were referring to it at first because they look like stars, which is another cool image, like how they would navigate by the stars in those days. I think you stumbled upon something pretty cool!
  10. Great start! Your threads are always awesome. Some thoughts: --Like others have said, the combined name doesn't play. I might even consider taking off the "Black" and let the color palate, logo, unis, and mascot backstory speak to that. --The shoulder logo looks too much like the Albuquerque Isotopes for me. --Love the sweaters. Good use of color. Hope this helps! I'm impressed by how open to feedback you are on these boards.
  11. The home sweater kinda reminds me of those cutoff shirts girls would wear in the 80s....
  12. For the color scheme, I think it'd be cool of you integrated colors from above, which are more air force-y. This is from a concept on these boards by BrandMooreArt BrandMooreArt
  13. Haha love it! Everyone can appreciate a dreamer like this cod. As a sharks fan I can oddly relate Great work as always!
  14. These are great! I know you want to be done with this thread, but could you COD-ify SJ Sharkie? It seems fitting, right?
