    Creamer Concept World Cup 2018 - FINALS VOTING

    My main goal at the outset of the tournament was to make it into the round of 16, so I am more than happy to settle for 4th overall. Great job to everyone who participated, especially to all the other semifinalists - @raysox (well deserved 3rd place win), @gswansea (the probable champion and my vote for the final) and @Lafarge (well fought on our semifinal matchup, you definitely had the better concept between us), as well as host @rsaline! Can't wait for the competition four years from now, and who knows? Maybe I'll even give a shot at Logolympiad or something!

    US Cricket League - Beltway and Chicago logos open!

    Got a design that I like a lot, and I wanted to throw some colors by everyone. For the design itself, I used LA's connection to art deco to come up with a shape that is partially based off of the Eastern Columbia Building. Threw on an art deco font as well (Lemon/Milk) to wrap it all up. For colors, I came up with three ideas. The first uses the colors of LA's flag (green, gold, and red) on a dark grey background. Think of LA Galaxy's third kit from a couple of years ago. The second uses the midnight blue and silver that @raysox used to recolor the original concept. The third is an out-of-the-box look that puts together dark green, orange, and yellow. I'm sure there's a good marketing angle you could spin for each of them (the orange represents the oranges grown in the region, et al.), but I personally like the first one the most. Lemme know what you guys think!

    US Cricket League - Beltway and Chicago logos open!

    Yeah, I've lived in LA for most of my life and I have never once referred to it as Tinseltown, so I'd say that something simple like Los Angeles CC would work perfectly fine. Another thing that I definitely want to avoid is Hollywood imagery, it gets really stale real quick. I've got some free time tonight so I'll be fooling around with a design involving art deco, which is a design style that I really like a lot that also has some connection to the city (that and we can't let Miami have an art deco logo for the millionth time).

    I'm totally good with @gswansea's option. My only note is that the text for "Club" doesn't feel centered in the banner, but other than that it looks great. I'd love to tweak mine but I'm going to be busy until after New Year's, so I think I'll withdraw my submission for Philly and focus on a different city once I have the time.

    Did some brainstorming today and came up with this. It's got the shield and middle stripe of Philadelphia's coat of arms with a keystone, monogram, and wicket. I tried fooling around with other colors (I had a nice navy and cream look at one point), but I feel like this is the best combination I could come up with for this design.

    Macon Bacon Use Life Sized Jay Jackson Template to Unveil Uniforms

    I know I saw @raysox's used for the Malaysian national team recently, but they never ended up using said uniforms (no contrasting sleeves, and they went for black and bright yellow for home/white and royal for road).

    Various soccer concepts

    Looking good so far! I like what you've done with Hamburg - the diamond pattern works wonders on the home kit, and bringing back the half-and-half look was a good call for the clash. The third I do like (historical precedence is good!), but it feels a little too plain. It needs some sort of pattern to make it more exciting. Maybe a center stripe like the 2011-12 third kit, or maybe pinstripes like the Champions League winning kit from the 1982-83 season. I also really like what you did with Ajax - the black is untraditional but I think it looks great, and the black and green clash kit (despite looking a bit too similar to the old black kits the Sounders wore) looks great also. I'd love to see some sort of third kit for them - maybe a toned down version of the infamous 1989-90 away kit? Regardless, great work! Looking forward to any other teams you might design in the near future!

    MLS Kit Concepts

    Echoing the sentiment that the white strip should stick around, but I do like the gradient effect you made. Maybe a compromise of sorts? Try making a gradient that goes from red to white to navy. That way, you still get the traditional white stripe, but you can also keep your current ideas and add a new little twist. It should look like a funkier and darker version of the USMNT's bomb pop kits from '14. Regardless, it's a great design! And for Atlanta, thank you for switching the colors! That's the one complaint I have about their look, and this definitely improves it. And adding the gold pinstripes was another nice touch for sure. My one change would be to change the collar and sleeve cuffs to red, as that's something that I feel this jersey lacks. Or maybe you could add it by making the socks hoops? Anyways, you're doing great work, and I can't wait to see what you come up with for other teams!

    NWHL Concepts

    Glad you cleared that up on the Adidas stripes! For names, birds came to mind - some type of bird of prey for Winnipeg? (maybe Falcons? Osprey?) And for Chicago, maybe a different type of black "bird" to differentiate from the Blackhawks? Like maybe the Ravens or Magpies (not very black but a very unique name in the states nonetheless)? Non-bird options could be something else military-themed for Winnipeg (Bombers? Cavalry? Battalion?) and for Chicago... maybe something mythical to play off with the Sirens (Harpies comes to mind and while it's a little on the nose it just might work). I'm sure whatever you figure out will be great as always, though!
