  1. A while back, I took a stab at an Oklahoma City Thunder concept. The basic idea of the concept was to combine simple, bold elements with more detailed and technical designs derived from Western and Native American culture. I thought that in principle my ideas were good, but the whole thing was a bit rushed. I ended up making a lot of execution mistakes that didn't make the set look the greatest. I knew though that with some work I could make the concept really dope. So, I took a look back at what I had done and created Mark II of my OKC Thunder concept. First, we start with the marks. I kept the basic ideas from my first concept (the Oklahoma Sunrise pattern, the monogram logo), refining them further. The biggest change is the shape and alignment of the letters in the monogram. In the first concept, while the elements being inside of the O was a clean and simple, a lot of people had a hard time distinguishing what was what in the logo. This time, I opted for a long, more horizontal O and a big K, which gives the logo a clearer and bolder look. In addition, the C is much more noticeable and part of the logo than before. Like before, the logo has Oklahoma Sunrise and plain white variants. And now, for the uniforms. The biggest problem with the original uniforms was that the Oklahoma Sunrise striping pattern on the side panels was too thin and created a vibrating effect when viewed from far away. In addition, I didn't like the way that the wordmark and the logos on the shorts looked. Therefore, I updated the striping pattern, making it bolder and more pronounced. The uniform typeface is different, using a bolder font with more subtle Western styling. I also changed the shorts logo accordingly throughout the uniforms. Thanks for taking a look! If you could leave some comments and critiques it would be much appreciated!

    Seattle Totems Expansion Concept

    I don't know why, but I like it a lot better in cream. With the white it seems too close to the Canucks, especially with them being so geographically close.

    Marquette Basketball Uniform Concept

    Thanks, just fixed the pictures!
  6. A while ago I put together a redesign of the Marquette Basketball Jordan uniforms. Looking back at them, I don't really think they would be consistent with something Jordan would make, so I set out to make something a bit more streamlined and modern than what I originally designed. I still have many of the same gripes as before with Marquette's current jerseys. When Jordan redesigned, they did away with the famous Rainbow striping in favor of a simple two color panel that runs down the sides of the uniforms. While it looks incredibly clean, especially in person, it fails to display Marquette's unique and beautiful color scheme like the Rainbow striped jerseys did. In addition, some of the colors are a little too faded for my tastes. While it is forgivable for most of the uniforms, it leads to an issue in the Championship Blue set, where the gold writing doesn't really pop on the jersey well. With these goals in mind, I set out on my MU uniform redesign. Here's what I came up with. With the resdesign, I kept many of the same elements from the current jerseys, including the Marquette script underneath the number, the Big East patch, and the memorial "Al" logo underneath the collar. The biggest change with the uniforms is an updated pattern on the side panels. With experimenting with gradients and all 3 of the school's colors, I came up with an interesting side panel pattern that incorporates all 3 of the school's colors. When introduced to the different colored jerseys, the pattern interacts in different and interesting ways, which I think gives all of the uniforms interesting and unique quirks. Marquette has always been known for having a lot of different uniform sets, so I made sure to include uniforms for all 4 colors. In addition to the pattern changes, I darkened the shades of gold and Championship Blue throughout the uniforms, which help to make a more vintage and rich look. I also made a 1977 "Untucked" Throwback Jersey, replicating the jersey that the then-Warriors wore against North Carolina in the National Championship game. The design features many of the quirks of the original 1977 Championship-winning uniform, including the mismatched gold shorts and the "Marquette" wordmark by the hem of the jersey. While these jerseys are not meant to be worn untucked, they still give the same effect as the old jerseys.These uniforms would only be worn once or twice a year for special occasions. So that's it for my Marquette uniform redesign. I think I was effective in creating a simple way of displaying all 3 school colors on the uniforms while still keeping the current, modern look. If you have any questions/C&C, feel free to comment below!
  7. Recently some of the details for Belgium and Adidas' World Cup 2018 kits were leaked. It was noted that 2018's kits would be more vintage and would draw from older retro kits. For Belgium's, it was leaked that the kit will draw on the famous 1984 Euro kits, which were most notable for the big argyle stripe on the front. Taking this knowledge, I mocked up what Belgium's kits could look like for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The primary kit, as usual, is a red shirt, but is paired with black shorts, hearkening back to the early days of the Belgian team. The most notable feature of the kit is the diamond pattern on the front, with a black and yellow diamond pattern across the chest. Above it are more dark red diamonds, in a gradient pattern. This pattern aims to draw from the retro design, but give it a modern twist. A black, gold and red trim is featured all over the kit, mimicking the Belgian national flag. For the secondary kit, I drew from the first ever Belgian national team kit, a white jersey with black, red, and yellow sleeve stripes and black shorts and socks. I made a fauxback of sorts, combining a few different eras and smaller details from across the team's history. For the jersey, I went with a cream color instead of a white, creating more of a vintage look. A dark cream horizontal pinstripe lies on the kit, fading as it descends. The crest is the original Belgian crest, which is found on both the shirt and shorts. The shorts and socks are the same as the primary kits'. Let me know what you think of the kits! Hope you enjoyed!

    US Soccer 2018 World Cup Concept by Scheuer

    Thanks a ton! The aim was to definitely have something simple that isn't overthought.
  9. I know what you're thinking, another US Soccer concept? Stay with me on this one. When US Soccer went through their rebranding, I was really excited. I thought nothing could get as bad as how the team's branding was before. However, the brand went in a completely different direction than I wanted. I think the federation in general should have taken on a more vintage, collegiate look instead of trying to be very modern with their designs. The font is too spread out and rounded for me, while the kits look way too modern and futuristic. In addition, instead of building on old jersey designs and giving them a breath of fresh air, it seems as if every cycle they just try to come up with something completely different. The federation is ignoring the 100+ years of history and other uniquely American design elements that they can bring to the table to honor the history of soccer in America. With this concept for the 2018 World Cup, I intended to hearken back to the storied history of the national team and give America a classic, vintage, traditional, but modern look. With this new set of kits, the idea was to establish a new orthodoxy of how US Soccer designs kits. I struggled quite a bit with which of the many looks the team has had over the years to retain, but I tried to keep it as simple as possible. The primary kit must always be primarily white, the secondary be primarily blue, and the alternate to feature some kind of red and white striping. So, let's start with the primary kit. I went with the standard US white kit, but with some special touches. The concept of the primary kit is to create a kit that pays homage to the national team's history and unrelenting fighting spirit. I chose to draw from the famous Gadsden Flag and the image of the rattlesnake. First, the jersey crest is located on the chest, in homage to the original US Soccer jerseys. A diamond design inspired by rattlesnake skin is sublimated on the front of the jersey. The kit is rounded out with navy shorts, and socks with subtle hoop designs. Additionally, "Don't Tread on Me" lies on the inside of the kit under the collar. The secondary kit draws from decades of US Soccer employing a sash on kits. This installment features a dark navy sash across the jersey. The shorts feature red stripes down the side, and are paired with inverted socks. "EST. 1913" lies under the collar on the inside of the jersey. Lastly is the Waldo-style alternate kit. Only for special occasions, such as big rivalry games, the main feature of the kit is obviously the red and white stripes. Darker red pinstriping lies inside of the red stripes. The kit borrows the shorts and socks from the primary set. "Stars and Stripes Forever" lies under the collar on the inside of the kit. With this set of kits, the US gets a classic look that draws from a lot of different eras and influences, but still retails the sleek minimalist look that Nike is currently producing. Let me know how I did! Enjoy!
  10. Recently, I've been working on changing up my template and presentation for soccer jerseys. I decided to test out the ideas I've had on my high school Alma Mater, McQuaid Jesuit in Rochester, NY. McQuaid just went through a new rebrand, which hearkened back to the original marks from when the school was founded in the 50s. This led most of the teams to get new jerseys and gear. The only team that hasn't gotten new jerseys for some reason is the soccer team. I wanted to give them some new jerseys that were a little more sleek and had more personality than the template Nike kits that the team currently wears. For the primary kit, I kept the traditional minimalist all white kit. A slashed stripe gradient design is found in the upper half of the kit, which pays homage to the seal of the school and the coat of arms of St. Ignatius Loyola. I updated the crest with the new Knight logo, and also added black trim with a splash of gold on the socks. For the secondary one, I elected to go for a more unconventional design. Drawing from the kit style of Sao Paulo or Spartak Moscow, a large alternate "M" logo lies at the chest of the kit, in front of a gradient hoop design. The numbers lie over the heart on the upper right. The black shorts, socks, and trim complement the bold gold shirt. Let me know what you think of the presentation and the kits! Hope you enjoyed!
  11. One of the teams I see the most concepts for on the internet is the Oklahoma City Thunder, and for good reason. They have one of the best color schemes in the NBA, but never seem to utilize it to their full potential. I've had a few ideas for the Thunder floating around in my head for a while, but didn't exactly know how to implement them. I wanted to bring in some Native American themes using the Thunder's color pallete, but not go too too crazy with OKC's unique scheme. When it was announced that Nike would be outfitting the NBA next season, I set to work putting my ideas into reality. For this concept I created a custom tertiary logo for use on the shorts. It is a simple "OKC" monogram in the shape of a roundel. The background of the first version of the logo also shows off a special pattern I developed for the uniforms. Called Kiowa Sunrise, it combines Native American design elements with the OKC color scheme. This pattern is the bread and butter of the uniforms, and is also featured on the background of the first version of the logo. I wanted to keep the uniforms really simple and let the colors really speak for themselves. The uniform is simple plain white and features a blue old west style arching "Thunder" wordmark and sans serif numbers, similar to their current font. The main event really is the Kiowa sunrise elements, on the side panels of the jersey and at the bottom of the shorts. A plain white "OKC" logo is found at the bottom of the shorts. The powder blue away uniforms are the same as the homes with a few differences. White replaces the powder on the Kiowa Sunrise pattern, and a powder "OKC" logo replaces the white one on the bottom of the shorts. A white split "Oklahoma City" also replaces the "Thunder". I must admit, I went pretty out of the box with the alternate jerseys. The Kiowa Sunrise pattern is sublimated over the entire top of the black jersey, with an arched "OKC" over the number. The other big feature on these uniforms is the big logo style Kiowa Sunrise version of the OKC on the shorts. Other than that, the jersey is trimness and pretty stripped back to let the pattern talk. What do you guys think? Any constructive critism/feedback is welcomed.
  12. Ever since Sporting KC came into MLS, they've had easily the best uniforms in the league. They had clean home and away looks that incorporated elements of their crest, and alternates that were always on point with the Sporting Argyle. Ever since they introduced the icy white alternate uniform, easily one of the best in MLS history, the league started cutting back on alternate kits. This year, the league did away with them completely. In general, I think Adidas has been a little too stripped back with uniforms, especially KC's. Sure they look sharp, but every team can gear up in pinstripes. With this concept, I wanted to get KC back to its roots with something that draws from the team's unique identity. I wanted to draw from the crest, and also figure out some way to incorporate the argyle. Here is what I came up with. For the primary, I went with the classic powder blue and navy look. The jersey features a navy striping design on half of the kit, similar to what Dortmund did a few years ago. The striping mimics the striping pattern on the club crest. The rest of the uniform is pretty orthodox, with the only other detail being the powder and dark powder striping on the socks. For the secondary, I was thinking of doing a navy uniform, but elected to bring back the all-black look instead. For the kit I decided to use a midnight blue and silver for the trim. For the jersey, I decided to bring my take to the Argyle motif, with a sublimated midnight blue argyle pattern across the chest. The same midnight blue appears on the bottom of the shorts as trim. The same sock pattern is on the alternate kit, instead in charcoal and black. Let me know what you think of the concept! All C&C is much appreciated.
  13. I'm a huge fan of the way that Arizona has worked copper into their color scheme. I think it's a really cool nod to the state and its history. I wanted to feature a red alternate uniform that used copper in a more prevalent way than the other Arizona jerseys out there while at the same time change some things I don't necessarily like about Arizona's gradient design. Here is what I came up with. For this uniform I completely eliminated white from the equation, replacing it with copper. For the gradient design, I added my own spin to it, a copper bar close to the top that draws from uneven striping designs seen in a lot of Southwestern patterns. The chest features a copper Arizona wordmark with blue numbers underneath. On the shorts, instead of a full gradient design along the entire bottom, I limited it to a design similar to the tops on the side of the shorts. A recolored UA logo sits at the bottom. This is a pretty adventurous design with a lot of different colors and moving parts but I think it works pretty well in the end.
  14. I've been a Notre Dame fan for as long as I can remember. In recent years I've started following ND basketball more closely. One of the jerseys I've loved is the green jersey, but there were some things I wanted to change about the uniform. I didn't want the same cut and paste design from the gold jersey, but something different. With this design, I set out to do this. Here is what I came up with: This is a little unorthodox for Notre Dame, but I think it follows a lineage and tradition of Notre Dame athletics. The first change I made is the incorporation of a different set of logos. The ND featured on the chest hearkens back to an older iteration of the ND logo, with a taller and different "N". On the shorts, a gold and blue version of the older leprechaun logo is implemented. Elsewhere on the uniform, I used a simple slash striping on the shorts instead of the chevron design. Another difference is the gold and blue detail covering the entire uniform. Gold is also used as the primary detail color for logos instead of blue. Overall, this is a pretty modern design for ND, but I wanted to keep it rooted in the past with a simpler design and past logos.
  15. I love the concept for the Northwestern Gothic uniforms. The execution by the football team is great, and the basketball team followed suit with some great sets with the same theme. However, there are some things I didn't really like with the basketball sets. I think the gold could have been accented a little more and I thought a lot of the small details were a little too much in the grand scheme of the jersey. I wanted to bring the same spirit and style of jersey but make it a bit more simple. Here's what I came up with. The biggest changes are in the simplifications. Here, I took the Northwestern stripe arch design and made it more prominent and simplified on both the jersey and shorts. I also added a stone texture stripe down the sides of the jersey and shorts. The gothic script is simple and stripped back while still being intricate. With this set, there is the right amount of complex and simple.
