    MLB: The Defunct Saga - San Diego Reds Updated

    I think if the sand road uniform had white outlines instead of cream, that would be great for the road uniform. The city pride is also an upgrade for sure.

    MLB: The Defunct Saga - San Diego Reds Updated

    The San Diego Reds look great! A little strange not being in Cincinnati, but great. My only two recommendations: I agree with @coco1997 about trying a sand-tinted road (it would go nicely with the red), and I would make the piping red/white/yellow on the city pride alt, to better match the flag. Excited for what’s next!

    All the iterations of the Tampa Bay Giants look great! The Pirates-font version would help them fit nicely with the Buccaneers, though I particularly like the final arched “Tampa Bay” original version as well as your “Florida-fied” version. The white cap would also be a great addition to the set, and the “TB” gray uniform would work great as a road alt. The Giants collage you presented is also truly astounding. To echo @coco1997, it really is a testement to your amazing work and creativity in making each Giants team unique to their city. It is interesting though, that it goes to show that despite all of those options, San Francisco probably ended up being the best possible result!

    NFL REDESIGN (Bears update 1/16)

    This is hands down my favorite Texans concept I’ve ever seen. I think you finally solved them. The logo is absolutely genius, I love everything about it. I like the navy helmet better, but I would add a red pants option that could go with the away and the alternate (and the home for Color Rush or “Battle Red” I guess), to better keep the red/navy codominance. With that addition, this is a set that could have a lot of good mix-and-match combos. Overall, terrific job!
  5. So many great divisional matchups this week! I actually really like the Ravens black over purple look, it’s probably only second to their purple over black for me. Although it makes them look a bit like a purple version of the Steelers, I think it’d be a nice alternate to have a couple times a year. This is a great list, though, and I’ve really enjoyed following these all year, @infrared41.

    The Tampa Bay Mariners look nice! I love the scripts and the jacket in particular. Navy & athletic gold probably makes the most sense for the team, though I’d wonder how it would look using a more “yellow” shade that the Rays currently use (which the Mariners also used to use, PMS 116 C). Also, I think making the road tinted powder blue could help improve the look (and it would have precedence in the histories of both teams), right now the road just looks a little too “warm,” if that makes sense. Regardless, this is a wonderful job as always!

    The Eagles look great! Definitely one of my favorites you’ve done so far, and probably my favorite Eagles concept that I’ve seen. Great job!

    Unpopular Opinions

    I’ll admit that white numbers probably look better, but I think navy looks fantastic too in all honesty, it’s hard to go wrong with that color combo (though, by adding the silvers, the Titans somehow managed to do that in the other elements of their set).

    MLB: The Defunct Saga - San Diego Reds Updated

    I love the updated Whitecaps! The original version definitely has that 90s feel, but your update gives me UNC vibes, which I will always love. The sleeves, sock stripes, and colors are all great. Merry Christmas!

    Unpopular Opinions

    I admit I like the newer font better, and that the numbers on the columbia jersey are now navy to differ more from UNC. Everything else, especially the inclusion of silver, is a downgrade for me unfortunately. I will say, I like how the navy helmets seem to refect the clouds in the sky very well (as seen in the two pictures I quoted above), a very “Titan-esque” feature. If the helmets were light blue, that sky effect would be even better.

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 15

    I think Vikings-Dolphins was a great looking matchup, and I’d say it’s even possibly my matchup of the year. I love the way two of my favorite color schemes in the NFL play off each other, and even though the each uniform has some minor flaws (for the Vikings: the pants stripe, and for the Dolphins: the wordmarks and the non-round edges of the number font), those issues are so minor that it results in what I think is honestly a beautiful matchup between two modern, Nike-designed uniforms.

    Philadelphia Phillies Unveil New Primary Logo

    This is some great analysis, I agree with pretty much everything you’ve said here. I’ve become increasingly on board with some teams adopting cap logos as primaries, to better suit the modern social media age. The Orioles in particular like you mentioned are one that could really use a switch to the cartoon bird as the primary. This might be an unpopular opinion, but the Giants are another team that I think could afford to switch to the cap logo if they wanted to. For the Twins, on the other hand, it’s simply a shame that Minnie and Paul isn’t the primary logo.

    Wow, this is a lot to take in! I think you made the right call going with “Tarpons,” although “Twins” could translate well, you’re right that it seems too closely associated with Minnesota, especially in the navy/red scheme. The red/orange variants are very nice as well, the orange pinstripes work wonderfully to truly give the “creamsicle” effect, I didn’t even realize the base color was white until I zoomed in. Maybe this idea is influenced the throwback Bucs a bit much, but it could be a nice look to have a white-crown cap paired with the orange alt. Well done!
  14. I hope the Dolphins wear their teal pants. That might end up being my matchup of the year if they do.

    NFL REDESIGN (Bears update 1/16)

    If you’re looking for ways to possibly improve the away uniform, I think using a striping pattern similar to the helmet stripe might help. Although silver has become sort of integral to the Patriots’ identity due to their success with it, I think you could afford to remove it in place of white. Either way, this is another great look in one of the best series on the boards!

    MLB: The Defunct Saga - San Diego Reds Updated

    I’m actually not sure which I like better! They’re both great, but the inclusion of yellow definitely makes it feel more “Florida,” and is a rare case where a double outline actually helps it seem more readable.

    MLB: The Defunct Saga - San Diego Reds Updated

    Wow, the Florida White Sox are beautiful! This is definitley a highlight of the series for me. I love the font and color scheme; the addition of yellow and the switch to red-orange are both great moves. I’d be curious to see how just green & orange looks, just because, though I imagine the addition of yellow makes the look better. It’d also be good to see at least one jersey (probably the home or the green alt) with that beautiful “White Sox” wordmark from the jacket. Wonderful job!
  18. Have the Titans worn columbia over navy yet? I feel like that would be a redeeming combo.

    MLB: The Defunct Saga - San Diego Reds Updated

    While I'm not too big on the scripts (a modernization of that Smokers script would be interesting), the colors seem to fit Tampa Bay surprisingly well. I also like the main sock pattern and the primary logo, those are both great. Looking forward to the next Tampa Bay team!

    MLB: The Defunct Saga - San Diego Reds Updated

    The Tampa Bay Pirates look great! I don’t really have much to add other than it made me realize how similar the Pirates’ and Giants’ logos are. I also love the Tarpons! It’d be a huge shame for my Twins, but the logos, colors, and uniforms are all great. The light blue pinstripes are also a definite improvement. I’m looking forward to seeing a red/orange version, I was going to suggest such a thing.

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    Looking at the uniforms now, I’m starting to realize they remind me a lot of the Twins home uniforms, and a lot of the problems that comes with it: Both have a color scheme that we ideally would like to see work, but the colors might unfortunately just end up muddling together from a distance with the way the outlines and shadows currently are colorized. Also, I think this set shows that baseball desperately needs to modernize some of its design conventions. The piping on the sleeves is way too small to really mean anything, to the point where the colors muddle together and are indistinguishable on uniforms such as the Twins and Marlins. If the sleeve stripes were even the size they were on the original ‘93 road uniforms, it would be a significant improvement.

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    Overall, I would say this new look is a slight upgrade, even if just for the more prominent use of their wonderful blue. Although the rainbow look had potential if they got creative with it (having their color scheme be every color), but ultimately, the fact is that they resorted to black, white, & orange, not a fitting scheme for them. I really like the new “M” fish logo, as well as the wordmark. I do wish the “caliente red” ended up being pink, especially since it’s reserved to an accent. I wish the black jersey was the one with just the “M” logo, as it would be more visible than a wordmark. The all-black hat is a little boring too, I wish they had more colorful options to choose from to brighten things up a bit.

    Why would they caption all of the uniform sneak peeks with “11.15” only to reveal them tomorrow morning?

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    It’s interesting to me that all of the murals that have been shown so far on social media use two different shades of blue. I wonder if that will translate at all into the final logo set.

    MLB: The Defunct Saga - San Diego Reds Updated

    Dang, Indy looks great! I love the arrow under the scripts and the way the striping patterns are carried throughout. I think black & red works fine for them, but if you wanted to try a different scheme, powder blue & red could be an option, as that was what the photo of the mockup uniforms initially struck me as.
