  1. These are the uniforms that should have been unveiled today to say the least.. HOME Quote "These are your identity. These show what you want to represent yourself as".- Kong Tom Home: I wanted these to look fierce, tough, and sleek. Give feedback on how they look. Thanks ALTERNATE Quote: "Show your 2nd side" - Kong Tom Alternate: I wanted to show the precision of football. The between the lines, tackling, and methodicalness. Which one do you like better? Honest feedback is always appreciated.
  2. This is my first time doing this sort of thing because I don't have a professional art program nor the fact that I can draw either which doesn't help but I happen to like the Madden Expansion Team and hopefully they'll add more locations and uniforms and team names.... oh wait this is EA, nothing will change at all. So the first team I intend to show off is an old favorite of mine over the years, the London Monarchs aka the Royal Gold and Blues... the old school team that may become an actual team someday within the next few years... here's the Home and Away uniforms for said Monarchs plus the Third/Alternate ((No more Color Rush)) variant of said uniform Keeping the helmets as safe can be, the uniforms are combination of Metallic Gold, Royal Blue and Red with White showing off the Away Uniform.. if anything, the third uniform is something I'm proud off because it can be used on the road on certain games or if they're paired up against the Saints or the 49ers. They would have their Home games at the new Northumberland stadium and whilst in America, they use the Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, Virginia as their temporary ground against those that can't adjust to the time difference. Feedback is welcome, I intend to update with the next team...El Diablos of Mexico City
  3. I did a few other sport mashup concepts before, but thought i would get into the MLB and do some hockey uniforms for those teams. I got a few done already, just wanted to see what you all thought. Hoping to slowly make my way through the whole MLB. I am hoping to do a home/away and possible alternate for each. I like doing the alternate where it is influenced by a throwback look. So far I have done the Toronto Blue Jays, Milwaukee Brewers and 1 throwback idea for the Pittsburgh Pirates. For the Brewers I did 2 versions, one with the older Navy/Yellow look and one with their Navy/Metalllic gold look. Also, let me know if these images work. Had an issue last time i posted some stuff.

  4. As a native Minnesotan, I usually get a little disappointed or dismayed by the Twins concepts I see on the forum. Their identity always seems like a bit of an afterthought, often subject to a recolor so as to differentiate the Twins from a myriad of RWB teams in the league. Instead of taking this approach, I wanted to work (for the most part) with the existing color scheme whilst drawing from the team's history. With that in mind, I reintroduced light blue into the color scheme. While light blue was restricted to their road uniforms in an era when several teams were using it for their road uniforms, this historical precedence combined with the fact the state's name literally means "sky-tinted water" makes it a suitable vehicle for setting them apart from teams with similar colorways. This addition of light blue spells the end for Kasota gold. I didn't necessarily hate its addition a few years ago, but its application was unsuccessful and does not fit with the light blue. One of the more popular changes for posters is to correct the inconsistencies between the team's wordmarks. I decided to follow suit, but took a decidedly different approach. The result applies the Minnesota Wild script to the Twins, using a Tuscan-esque font that takes cues from the area's history as a railroad and flour milling hub. The TC logo follows suit, and I put an M back on the away cap. Here, it calls back to the successful minor league Minneapolis Millers. Lastly, Minnie and Paul are updated with the new colors and wordmark as well as altering the state outline to be more geographically accurate. It is promoted to the primary, replacing the squad's generic baseball roundel. Got all that? Good. Now look at it. Let me know what you think. I also have a decidedly modern take on the Twins that I will post sometime in the coming week. Take care.
  5. Tennessee Titans Concept

    Based on the leaks so far, I strongly dislike what I've seen from the Titans. It feels like too much of a shift and doesn't read as the Titans to me. The gray is pointless clutter and makes the set much more drab. The number font is hideous and overly designed. The underarm panels look like something out of 2002. Overall, the color balance is all over the place and there's generally no cohesion at all. I always thought the Titans needed incremental tweaks, not a complete overhaul. The flaming thumbtack is outdated but I really like the circle with the stars from the state flag. The pants are fantastic, however the modern helmet stripes clash with the traditional pants. I like the shoulder stripes and the sword shaped stripes on the new set are a cool evolution of that feature, it's just a shame that they're now gray. My set looks to streamline things a bit (consistent stripes, consistent number colors on the various jersey panels, updated word mark, logo, etc). I like the idea of a red Color Rush set. Navy pants are needless clutter given how fantastic their normal white and columbia blue pants are. I think I do prefer the Titans in white helmets, however, it makes too much sense to use columbia blue to distinguish themselves from all the other white helmet teams, and it still looks great. Of all the helmet choices, the rumored navy is the worst option. I emphasized navy and columbia blue with red used as small touches (swooshes, nameplates, helmet stars, part of the word mark, etc).
  6. Washington Bullets update concept

    I thought the Bullets old jerseys were a bit too messy. and that their 90's jerseys were too red and unpleasant for the eyes. so I tried to do something in between. Their court I thought had far too much empty space and too small logos. so I pulled them up a bit. and I fixed some angels on the primary logo.
  7. Omaha Lucky Buckets NBA Concept

    This is the first design of mine that I am uploading to this site. Pretty much all of the logos are a mashup of different logos I found. The name Lucky Buckets is from the famous Lucky Bucket Brewing Company originating from Nebraska. I thought it would be interesting to design a concept based on the brand. Let me know what you think and respectful criticism is more than welcome. BTW, I've used the program GIMP to do my designs, so I apologize that these aren't "professionally" done.

  8. Kansas City Hunters - NBA Concept

    Hello! Im just posting this concept for the NBA. I honestly think the NBA should expand to 32 teams. Feel free to comment!
  9. Seattle Supersonics concept

    I Want some sonic boom back! Here's an Seattle Supersonics concept I made
  10. update and rebranding New Jersey Nets

    here is a logo concept and uptate I did of 1990/91 - 1996/97 New Jersey Nets logo. logo. I´ve always thought it was an excellent logo. But the colors and finish were awful.
  11. Los Angeles clippers concept

    I made a concept of Los Angeles Clippers old logo. I wish they would bring it back. But have some cleaner jerseys. and another tone of the colors. I wanted the colors to remind more of sailers ship crew and the ocean.
  12. High School Helmet Decal

    Hello, I am looking for some inspiration for developing a Helmet Decal for a local school. The team is called the railroaders and the only colors they use are blue and white. The Coach really wants the word railroaders to be incorporated somewhere in the design, I am not a huge fan of big script letters on helmets so I went with a think smaller block font. He also wants to ensure that people understand that railroaders are the people that worked on building the railroads not people who worked on trains, so I am debating doing some sort of mascot depicting a railroad worker. I guess I am looking for help in which way I should take this logo. It is not apart of a rebrand just simply redesigning the helmet logo because a new coach was hired. What they had in previous seasons is below. This is just a rough mock of what I think may look good any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated!
  13. MN Vikings Logo Redesign

    I am a huge fan of how recognizable and unique the current Minnesota Vikings logo is but after studying design for a few semesters, I've come across some fundamental composition flaws in the viking head. 1. Since this a profile view of the viking, the back horn should not be visible to us. It should be obstructed by the horn closest to us. 2. The shape of the emblem as a whole fights for your attention because it has multiple points pulling you in different directions. This isn't a problem if the directions are equidistant (like a star) or pulling you in a general direction but the helmet, horns, hair, braid, and mustache all bring you somewhere else (as pictured in the diagram below). Now these things seem minor, but they leave the viking head looking very static in space. 3. The mustache looks fine. This is just personal opinion but I think beards look meaner. My goal for this redesign was to create a streamlined, visually appealing, and tougher version of the classic logo that feels like a natural progression into the future. My solution to my issues with the existing logo was to remove the back horn, recompose the curves to all point behind the viking head, and add a beard for a tougher and more modern look. I'm still in the process of refining the logo but I wanted to post it on here to get some feedback before I dive in too far. The beard feels sort of empty compared to the interior of the hair but I'm not sure how to incorporate the same line quality without making it feel too busy.
  14. Atlanta Falcons Logo Concept

    The Falcons are overdue for a fresh look. In my opinion, their old look wasn't a bad one, but Arthur Blank wanted to forge a new winning identity, so I get why the brand was changed. It's unfortunate that such a classic and strong logo had to fall victim to association to decades of losing. My idea is to go back to the old branding, but not all the way. I kept the current forward tilt of the current logo, as well as the aggressive bird's eye and overall feel to the classic logo. I did some styling to the wing feathers for a more aerodynamic look, and updated the bird's head and beak to look more like a bird of prey than the old, docile head of the classic logo. I may play around with helmet/uniform concepts along this line, so stay tuned! Here are the old and current logos for reference:
  15. I finally decided to post my Minnesota Vikings concept that I made in January. The concept is based on the idea that there is a home/away set, color rush, and a throwback alternate. I based the main set on the vikings current uniforms while also implementing the concept drawings by Hubenthal. I used the current Vikings font but without the serifs, added a white facemask, and tweaked the horn logo slightly. For the color rush uniform I decided to base it on the all white uniforms the vikings wore from 1969-1995 with the UCLA stripes. I based the alternate/throwback on the 1965 uniform set, where the numbers are outlined and the stocks dont have stripes.
  16. The New XFL

    With the announcement of the new XFL, I thought it would be a fun exercise to design the league from the ground up. The intent of this project is to not only design team uniforms and nicknames but to design an overall structure for the league - everything from the design of the ball itself to the timing of the play clock. With that in mind, here are a few notes to start: Overall, my initial focus is on manufacturing a feel of establishment for the league. Make it feel like the teams belong and have staying power. Basically the opposite of the original XFL approach. This means fairly conservative uniform designs (unlike the original XFL), no ridiculous team names (unlike the original XFL), and no ridiculous in-game gimmicks. So definitely a departure there. There will, however, necessarily be aspects that set the XFL apart from the NFL. Speeding up the game (both on the field and the overall runtime) is paramount. We're trying to fit a full four quarters of football into as little time as reasonably possible. The main legislation that will help accomplish this is having a running clock until the final four minutes of each quarter. For the first 11 minutes of each quarter, the clock will only stop for timeouts, after scoring plays, for injuries, and after changes in possession. Other timing changes: We're shortening the play clock from 40 seconds (the NFL's play clock) to 20 seconds (the CFL's play clock). This will basically force all XFL teams to run the hurry up as their base offense. This means if you tune in to watch an XFL game you can bet that you're going to see fast-paced, college-style offense. In the last four minutes of each quarter, the game clock will still stop after an incomplete pass, but only until the ball is reset by the official. Basically, our incompletions in the last four minutes of a quarter will operate like the NFL's rule about running out of bounds. One of the ridiculous aspects of the original XFL that we'll actually keep around is a different design for the actual football to be used in games. Not this ridiculousness, though. Our new official XFL football will be bright red leather with white college stripes (see attached). I believe this change would make the ball pop off the screen but would also be conservative enough for fans to be able to take it seriously, unlike the original XFL ball. As far as city selection for our 8 expansion teams, I'm targeting cities that fit one of two descriptions: truly large cities that have no NFL affiliation (San Antonio, Austin, etc.) or college towns that have an established, mid-to-upper tier college football program. No Penn State's or Ohio State's - we're looking for stadiums that hold 40,000 to 60,000 people, not twice that. So far the two cities I've selected are San Antonio, Texas and Ft. Collins, Colorado. The new XFL will not have a kickoff after scoring plays. We're going with Greg Schiano's proposal. The new XFL will use the college football overtime rules. The new XFL will not have a PAT. Instead, we have BAT - the Bet After Touchdown. It's automatic that a team will get seven points when they score a touchdown, but they have the option to wager one of those seven points for a chance at an eighth point. If the team elects to attempt the BAT, they try to score in one play from the 10-yard line. A successful BAT results in a total of eight points for your drive. Go for the BAT and not make it? You end up with six total points for your TD drive. Every single play and/or ruling is eligible to be challenged and challenges are now handled entirely by a group of off-site "challenge officials" who watch the game and can call for a challenge as needed. They are instructed to prioritize the flow of the game over 100% accuracy of calls. Challenges will be enacted on plays of two types: egregious officiating errors or truly difficult to call real-time judgments. Otherwise, we're sticking to the "50 drunks in a bar" rule: if everyone agrees it looks like a catch in real time, we're not worried about what the slow-motion replay says. The original XFL actually had several significant innovations that the NFL ended up stealing. As commissioner of the new XFL, I will also insist that the league try out new and innovative ideas to show our fans football from a new perspective. For starters, every skill position player's helmet in the XFL will be equipped with a built-in camera like this one. Tiny camera technology has gotten so advanced from everything like resolution and optical image stabilization that this project has actually made me kind of mad that the NFL hasn't piloted something like this. Imagine if you could cut to a replay of a big play with footage like this.
  17. The Tennessee Titans' logo and uniforms and I have had a bit of an on-again-off-again relationship over the years. When I first remember seeing them in the Super Bowl against the Rams in 2000, I was in love with the logo, cuz, you know, FLAMES!!!!!!!! I was five then. As I got older, I soured on the logo, thinking the flames were over the top and the Titans would be better off using the sword alternate logo or the thumbtack roundel. The Titans' refusal to wear reasonable uniforms combos also drives me nuts. The helmet striping doesn't really go with anything and the brashier stripes on the pants don't feel right with the yoke, which has gotten too small over the years. The Uniforms have some good ideas, but I'm not crazy about the execution. Lately, the uniforms are still a mess, but I have come around on the idea of flames for the Titans. I think that is something they can own and it really just works. I do not care for the T logo. Besides the comparison to a thumbtack as far as it's shape goes, it feels small contained within the shield or roundel or whatever the circle is. The Titans logo should be big, "titanic" and the T should be the focal point, IMO. I threw out the bathwater, but kept the baby. The colors remain the same, but the Flaming T is bigger and bolder. I don't think this is a finished product but I'm also not entirely sure what parts of the logo needs more work so, please feel free to offer and C&C. I would really appreciate it. Once the logo gets to a good place, I'll work on some new uniforms to go with the updated logo. Thanks for having a look.
  18. Connecting Old & New Broncos Fans

    Hey all, this is my first post on this forum in over 2 years. I'm working on a class assignment that asks us to create a brand that appeals to all generations. I decided to pick Denver because if you ever go to (I'm forever calling it) Mile High Stadium, you'll notice there is an internal fan base battle over the new navy and orange color scheme versus the traditional blue and orange from the OG Elway days. I just took some screenshots of the concepts and logo I have created so far because I'm really looking for some C&C on the next steps before I fully turn this into a presentable concept and project. So before I can waste anymore of your time.. Here is my idea. Blend both the Navy and traditional blue into a color scheme that works, evolve the new bronco head with the very famous "D" that has previously been introduced in their most recent Color Rush, and throw in some millennial sprinkles like a mountain and red rocks shadows in the numbering to give everyone a little taste of what they want the Broncos to look like. Again, C&C is very much appreciated! This would be the Broncos Alternate and "Color Rush" The Blue Color Rush and Alternate jersey's should design would be based off the City of Denver Flag. I removed the Sun from the jersey because of Nike's swoosh placement in the NFL. Up Close rough mockup featuring Nike's now famous sublimation pattern of Red Rocks Amphitheater.
  19. I think the Eagles have a great logo and I'm a big fan of their midnight green color, but I think they just have too much going on with black, charcoal gray and silver accompanying the green. In my opinion, the Eagles look best when they are wearing only green, silver and white, so this concept is more of a clean-up than a full on rebrand. I was also inspired by what the Detroit Lions did with their logo an uniforms this past season. Those are not perfect, but I really like the idea of what the Lions did. Here's my take on the logo: nothing too exciting, the green is a touch more green and the black is gone. The new wordmark is my take on a simpler, less "XTREME" version of the current wordmark and is more in line with the contemporary branding in the NFL: bold, single color lettering with some serifs and a bridge shape to give it some character. Here are the new home and road uniforms. Less is more as the uniforms are reminiscent of the current duds but are without the needless clutter of superfluous colors and embellishment. The Color Rush uniform is gray in the same style of the primary uniforms and the regular alternate uniform is a midnight green version of the classic throwback uniforms thanks to the one-helmet rule. So, thats it. Thanks for taking a look and I'm definitely open to any and all C&C and feedback.
  20. Finally got some time to mess around with these hockey uniform templates. I thought I'd try doing hockey uniform versions of the 4 final teams in the NFL playoffs. Never did a mash up before so thought I'd try it out. Wanted to see what the thoughts were. It's the Patriots, Jaguars, Vikings and Eagles. I took various parts of the design from elements of the football uniform, IE: Pant shell stripes from pants, socks from socks or sleeve striping and jersey elements influenced by the elements on the football jerseys. Really enjoyed doing these and experimenting a bit. I didn't change/adjust any of the team logos. I just used the versions that the teams use in the NFL. Hopefully this works.
  21. We Will Rock You FFL

    This is a revisiting of a topic that has been dormant for quite some time due to images being removed by a 3rd party host. I now have a new 3rd party host and want to put this concept out there one more time. It was originally set up to be a collaborative work involving Mr. MJ Walker and myself but I am doing this on my own for now. If you want to come back on board Mr. Walker please reply I like your work and want to start by giving you credit for the uniform designing that you did. We start anew with the league shield concept that is based off of the musical "We Will Rock You" by Queen and Ben Elton Next are the 2 conference logo concepts. The NAC for North American Conference and the UKC for the United Kingdom Confere Let me know your thoughts.
  22. Okay so I am posting for the first time in about 7 months... back when i used to use paint to make concept jerseys.... I have gotten better at designing and I decided to put my skills to use on my favorite basketball team, the Oklahoma City Thunder. Unlike many, I have always loved the Thunder's colorway and most of their uniform sets. Especially the away uniform. Anyway, I always felt like there could be a little bit of flare added to their uniforms. The designs I created take inspiration from the current Nike sets that they have right now as well as looking past to retro 90s uniforms. Take a look. The uniforms go as followed: White Association uniform, blue Icon uniform, Sunset uniform, and Thunderstorm city uniform
  23. This is just a quick and dirty concept I whipped up as an idea, should the Edmonton Eskimos choose to change the team name. I don't have a dog in the fight, so please stay away from the Native American mascot talk and keep to the concept. I think Polar Bears or Nannut, the Inuit word for polar bears, makes a lot of sense for Edmonton. Here's how it might look on the helmet: Here's a quick look at a green helmet: Please feel free to offer any criticism and critiques because this is just a very quick rough draft. I like the way it's headed but I'm not sure it's really there yet. Thanks for taking the time to have a look.
  24. Hershey Bears Project

    Hey, folks. Stumbling back to the boards for a short while as I work on another small project. I don't want to call this a rebrand but that's basically what I'm doing here. I love the Hershey Bears color scheme and even their logo set, but I feel like their jerseys are always subpar. That is besides their throwbacks and fauxback jerseys. This project will be taking their brand and making it a full classic vintage look, which I feel would suit the Bears best. For right now, I only have two teaser images up. These are basically the logos I will be working with for the concept. Still some tweaking to do, but I'm going full on 50's candy bar vintage style with this project. From the logos, jerseys, and posters, tickets, really anything. Should be a short and fun concept to work on. I hope those that follow along enjoy it as well! Obviously, would love to hear thoughts along the way, but just keep in mind, I'm not straying far away from the idea at hand which is: complete vintage Hershey Bears. So, without further adieu here are the first two teasers.
  25. Hey all, I decided to try and create retired number banners for current NBA players and their respective teams. These banners are based off the actual style of retired number banners the team uses (with exception to LAC and OKC since they havent retired any numbers yet). Justifications as to why I did or did not include certain players (HM=Honorable Mentions) are included below as well.
