  1. Taking a small break from my city mashup series in order for me to complete my concepts for HJC's World Hockey Jersey Championship. First up is Canada. For this, I used the Chest stripe from their vintage jerseys, and added the two stripes from their modern jerseys. A vintage-style maple leafs adorns the front, and black is relegated to the equipment. C&C is appreciated!
  2. Here is my latest project, the rumoured Canadian Premier League. There have been rumbles of a possible 8 team league being started by some owners of the CFL and NHL looking to put in a new Canadian league in order to grow local talent. The rumoured teams have been named as Victoria, Edmonton, Calgary, Hamilton, Greater Toronto Area, Quebec City, and a Maritimes team (I went with Halifax). I originally started this for the sole purpose of bulking up my portfolio with more soccer logos and jerseys, but I ended up finishing the entire logo aspect of it and am quite proud of what I have come up with. I purposely made the logos on here small to tease you guys. I am just putting the finishing touches on the jerseys and should post them one by one as the week goes on. Please note that the names and locations have not been confirmed. The names I came up with by myself. Logos are purposely tiny, just to tease you guys. Hamilton Club Edmonton FC Quebec City Victoria Wanderers SC Calgary Harts SC Toronto City Falcons Ottawa Fury FC Halifax SC First team due up: Hamilton Club (I'd like to get comments on the CPL logo before I post the first team, thanks)
  3. It's been a while since I posted a concept. My last American soccer league did not go as well as I had planned. So I've switched gears from computer designed to hand drawn. I started to do this all the way back in July and have worked on it off and on since then. The United States Soccer League(USSL) and Canadian Soccer League (CSL) USSL So way back in 1902 6 clubs from the East coast and Midwest. Since then it has expanded to 75 teams an three tiers. Each state has at least 1 team plus Washington DC and Puerto Rico. CSL Established in 1971 with 6 teams across Canada, and now has twenty teams. Each providence and territory has at least 1 team. This is just like any other soccer league with regulations and promotions in the USSL. CSL is more MLS format with the same 20 teams each year. See the league rules here: (not completely finished yet) https://docs.google.com/document/d/14ndiQfsGJJM-iI9UaHcMU7QgyM5riBzH6aMvy4oP6PU/pub American aspects: Playoffs to determine champion, draft, free agents, trades, etc. European aspects: points system, regulation/promotion, etc. One major thing though: Soccer is the only major sport in the world. No NFL, MLB, NBA, or NHL. Volleyball and other similar sports continue, but all of the major athletes play in this league(i.e. Steph Curry, Mike Trout, Sidney Crosby, Antonio Brown, etc.) League Logos: First team to come soon!
  4. I wasn't really with Canada's World Cup of Hockey uniforms they used this year. Canada has a really unique and storied hockey history, and the jersey didn't really respect that. It was a little too modern and stripped down for my tastes. I wanted to come up with something that respected the past and was modern and forward thinking at the same time. I figured that I have a hot hand with concepts right now, so I figured I'd take a shot at it. To do this, I took inspiration from two uniforms in particular. The first was the Winnipeg Falcons Team Canada throwbacks that they wore in 2004. I really like the center chest stripe, as well as the styling of the maple leaf. The second was the 2010 Olympic jerseys that Canada wore when they won the gold medal. I thought that the jersey was really really good, especially with the striping and First Nations design sublimated in the maple leaf. I first wanted to come up with some logos for the jersey and the rest of the uniform. I wanted to take the old styled maple leaf and combine it with the First Nations elements from the 2010 maple leaf. Here are the maple leaf logos that I came up with for the jersey. I took an irregular looking silver maple leaf and sublimated a Pacific Northwest First Nations design on top of it. I moved the arching "Canada" from the Falcons throwback down below the leaf, similar to the 2010 maple leaf logo. For the jerseys, I wanted the same mix of old school and new school. Here are the two jerseys: The home set is red with a white stripe in the middle of the jersey. The yoke is darker red, with the same dark red in the inside of the two white stripes. The away set is the reverse of the home, except for the red yoke. Both sets have black helmets and pants, as well as red socks. All C&C and feedback welcome and appreciated!
  5. I was experimenting with @McElroy19's Full-body Iceborn template and decided to do a concept for the czech republic.Their current jerseys aren't that great, without any arm or hem stripes, and even though I like flag jerseys, theirs wasn't executed all that great. So I wanted to make a concept that was like their flag jersey, but still had the design of a traditional jersey. The design features a timeless large hem stripe that, just like the flag, features a half-and-half design. I chose to make the home yoke white instead of blue to differentiate them from Russia a little bit. Tying it all together is a font that I feel works perfect with the jersey. C&C is appreciated!
  6. Hey everyone, Have been on the forums here for a couple of years but haven't done a concept series yet, so I have decided to give it a go. I will be doing court concepts for the National Basketball League of Canada. The NBLC was founded in 2011, the league has ten teams with five located in the Maritime (Halifax, Moncton, Sydney, Charlottetown & Saint John) Breton provinces and five in Ontario (London, Windsor, Orangeville, Kitchener & St Catherines) I will be starting the series with my hometown 2-time champion London Lightning. The current court is plain, bland and doesn't have any character. Players often step out of bounds because there isn't any colour outside of the playing area. Possibly the most popular team in the league, the court deserves to reflect the team well. C & C appreciated! I will be using Conrad's NBA template for the courts. Current court (Best I could find) New court
  7. Who doesn't love a good Bowl Movement? Whether it's the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl, the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl, or a Toilet Bowl, bowl games are just so much fun. But there is a place with college football that don't have bowl games. That place is Canada. A basic rundown of Canada's football landscape is this. 4 regional conferences, and no out of conference games. The conferences have a playoff to determine the champion, then the winners go to their respective semi final game. The easternmost is the Uteck Bowl, while the westernmost is the Mitchell Bowl. The winners of THOSE go to the Vanier Cup to play for the National Championship Up until this year, their version of the NCAA was the Canadian Interuniversity Sport. They rebranded to U Sport. The new brand is bold, and is a fresh look. That's where the NeatO Gang comes in. So Matt, Dynamo, and I created the Bowl Alliance. It's 8 bowl games, then the Vanier Cup. The 8 games are all over Canada, and the final would be the day before the Grey Cup in the same stadium. My thinking is that neutral fans would be more inclined to go to the game if it's a whole weekend event. The games would be played on (mostly) turf fields, so wear would not be an issue. The 8 games will mostly be towards the east, due to the west being such a big conference. So that's why Regina and Edmonton aren't hosting. That, and there is only 27 schools that have football programs. The saving grace is that there is talk of expansion, and inter conference play. Ok so moving on. This is heavily like the NCAA's playoff system. We have 4 games that I coined the Bowl Alliance. Then, similar to the "Group of 6" games, we have the Elite Bowls. Two in the east and two in the west, they will host the game no matter. But between the two, will rotate the rights to give away the Uteck and Mitchell trophies. Each conference would host their championship game between the two best teams. After that, the bigger 3 conferences would get an automatic bid to the playoff. With the conference in Atlantic Canada being left out. This is due to them having 4 teams, and for their best team to be ranked #10 with a 7-1 record. The team to play Canada West's champion would be the best at-large team, or the champion of the AUS. So see those logos? Those are new thanks to yours truly. Here are the current. They're average to bad, so I remade 3 of them! I believe that's it. So sit back and we will release each game one at a time! Games and records reflect the 2016 season as it has already happened.
  8. Doing a series for the Upcoming Canadian Premier League, hoping to get C/C - ideally mostly on execution rather than concepts, as these concepts have been pretty thoroughly dissected by the Voyageurs. I'll post kits eventually but for now just going to start with the crests.
  9. Concept basketball league. Anyone can upload teams until i feel we have enough teams. start off with just a logo or logo package. Teams can be anywhere in North America.
  10. I've been hearing a lot of rumors about the Ottawa Senators holding an outdoor game to commemorate their 25th anniversary as well as Canada's 150th anniversary. I decided to make a concept logo that resembled the Winter and Heritage Classic logos. Hope you enjoy, C&C appreciated
  11. Hey guys, I'm back with another series! NORTH AMERICAN HOCKEY ASSOCIATION This series is inspired by Raysox's World Ice Hockey Federation (I think that's right?). However, instead of focusing on several hockey leagues around the world, this thread has one league compromising of professional hockey teams in North America. TEAMS/ALIGNMENT Hockey teams are drawn from several North American leagues, including the NHL, WHL, OHL and QMJHL, to form a league of fifty teams. There are two conferences, Canadian and American, each consisting of 25 teams. From there, teams are split into five divisions, with five teams per division. LOGOS Logos are inspired by the NHL logo. To have an easier effect on your eyes, gradients were removed and each logo consists of two colors. PLAYOFFS/BRACKETS Out of the 50 teams, 32 teams qualify for the playoffs each year. The winners of each division are given the top five spots in their conference. After that, teams will have to fight for the remaining 11 wild card spots. STANDINGS Seeding is determined by a win-loss record. Tiebreakers include most regulation wins, most goals for, least goals against. If any teams are tied in all of these cases, a tiebreaker game will take place. GAMES Each game will consist of three periods, each twenty minutes long with a fifteen-minute intermission between each. If teams are tied after regulation, they will go into overtime. Overtime is sudden death with five periods lasting fifteen minutes, with a one-minute intermission between each. If a team cannot score in one period, they will move on to the next. Each period of overtime is different. Each one is listed below. *Five minutes of 5 on 5* *Four minutes of 4 on 4* *Three minutes of 3 on 3* *Two minutes of 2 on 2* *One minute of 1 on 1* If teams do not score after overtime, they will proceed to a shootout. During the course of the regular season, each team will play 90 games (45 home, 45 away). *4 games against each divisional teams (16)* *2 games against each team in conference (48)* *2 out-of-conference games against a designated team (2)* *1 out-of-conference game vs. each of the remaining teams (24)* SPECIAL EVENTS During the course of the regular season certain events will take place. *Three Winter Classics, each in select cities, during the first weekend in January* *The Champions Game, an outdoor game that takes place in the city of the reigning champion, versus the runner-up. Takes place at the beginning of the season* *All-Star game in February, American Conference vs. the Canadian Conference* --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SKIP AHEAD TEAMS Anaheim Ducks Arizona Coyotes Barrie Colts Blainville Armada Boston Bruins SPECIAL EVENTS Winter Classic: Chicago
  12. Hey guys! I've recently just made a hockey template with the intention of just showing my Wild logo, but I figured i'd try my hand at some other teams' jerseys and see what you guys think. the first international jersey I've tried is Canada. Will be adding more teams and the rest of the uniform components when time allows. thanks for looking! EDIT: heres a nike vers for those who may dislike my logo.
  13. Hi guys... I've been working on another kids' hockey book. "The Longest Breakaway". I've got it developed to the final "rough" stage, so most of the illustrations would need to be re-done. Right now, they're pretty heavily photoshopped, and there's a lot of "cut 'n paste" duplication...but it will give you an idea as to how it would look. This one's about a coast-to-coast breakaway after an incredible ice storm turns the country into one gigantic skating rink. It's a fun little story with some interesting characters, and a "groaner" ending. It's also a bit of a Canadian geography lesson. Every place mentioned in this book is an actual place. Hope you enjoy "The Longest Breakaway". Here it is on issuu... The Longest Breakaway...
  14. This is what I think the Alouettes need, considering their jerseys. The current ones are a mess and I really don't wanna rant about how sth that messy and unprofessional can be assigned and left for years untouched, to a great big team like the Montreal Alouettes. The design is simple, I kept the current team's colors, knocked out the silver from the pants, and only left it on the helmet. I was inspired by their 1974 unis, that they rocked for 6-7 years, seen here as a throwback: Anyway, this is the concept, tell me what you think. Home: Away:
  15. World Cup of Hockey Concepts I made these about a year ago for a design contest on HockeyJerseyConcepts.com and since the world cup logos and jerseys were released last night I thought it might be fun to revisit them now. Now I will be the first to admit, some of these are crap. This was one of my first ventures into Photoshop and also one of the first times I've made a logo, so please keep that in mind when you are criticizing them. I may go back and do the US jersey again without the sash just for the hell of it so keep and eye out for that. Other than that, enjoy my concepts from last year and let me know what you think. #MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain (why not)
  16. Trying to do some crests for potential canadian premier league teams, heres one for a second vancouver team, which seems like it would be pretty mandatory. Probably not finished yet, but thought I'd see what you fine folks thought.
  17. Hey everyone, So a bit before Adidas and the NHL unveiled the WCH jerseys, I sketched a few ideas out as to what I thought the Canadian jerseys might look like. I even was guessing where the Adidas stripes would go (figured they would have put them on these). After seeing the ones released (and I do mostly enjoy them), I wanted to adapt the sketch I made onto the template they presented. Even made the template to look similar to how they showed off the jerseys. As I said, this is mostly just what I guessed it would look like, and then applied it to the template they showed. Figured some of you might think it's cool. Nothing wild but I felt it looked sharp. And yes, the racing stripes are somewhat odd, but it's just how I guessed they might have done them.
  18. Little something I've been working on for this upcoming canadian premier league that's been rumoured. not perfect, but I'm pretty happy with the concept.

  20. Hey folks, I was wondering if you guys would be interesting in holding our own little throwdown and see who comes up with the best toronto maple leafs update(as they recently announced that they would be updating the logo next year). May the best designer win?
  21. Hey guys, I have a few redesigns for the States and was debating whether or not to put it in the Concepts thread even though its not sports. I'll put it here for now and see how the feedback is - if there even is any. Living in Ontario, we have had pretty much the same license plates since the 70's, maybe longer. Seeing plates from the States, well it seems some change every year instead of just using a Registration Sticker. For my redesign, I will have a maximum of 2 plate options per state - with the exception of California - There will be 3 plates shown of each design; a Vanity (personalized), Normal (3 numbers and 3 letters regardless of how said state spells theirs out) and Blank. Some plates may be restricted to the number of letters - 6 being the minimum, but most will have an 8 letter limit. I'm trying to make these plates look good enough to last 10 years. I am not doing separate plates for Trucks. If it looks like a truck, it's a Truck, no need to make a different one because it's a "commercial" vehicle. I will not make Government/Veteran/Alumni plates. Since I am not American, I am interested in any sort of feedback especially on your home state. I will do my best to avoid stereotypes or anything that may be offensive. Enjoy. Edit (April 29): This will now be a worldwide License plate redesign thread. I will make each plate in the standard North American form of 6in x 12in, so please, don't tell me how the shape won't fit your country's plate location. The list below will be edited soon for the upcoming regions. United States: Canada: Australia: Mexico: Tamaria (Imaginary Country):
  22. came up with this concept while in Penticton for my grandmas funeral. I realize the tagline is a bit morbid, considering the reason I was here, but ol gran lived a long and happy life and I'm pretty sure she would approve
  23. Hey folks, trying to design four crests/identities for my local mens soccer league in Whitehorse, Yukon. Basically tried to find the four most prominent symbols in the city, as in stuff used by local business, local landmarks etc etc. Copper Ridge -as CR contains our local first nation community, and overlooks the rest of the town, the raven seemed fitting. Tried to keep the design fairly basic. For Riverdale, there is a local monument, the SS Klondike paddlewheeler that sits at right in front of the only bridge into the neighbourhood, so I thought that might be a good symbol. This one might need work but I thought i'd see what you guys thought. Porter Creek sits a little bit out of town, and honestly I don't really have a specific reason for the symbolism, but the caribou is a common symbol around town so I thought it'd work. Also tried to make the shape like the caribou crossing signs we see around the area. For Greater Whitehorse United, I used the moniker "Land of the midnight sun" as well as the pickaxes which represent our original gold rush heritage that really put whitehorse on the map at all. Midnight blue and gold seemed appropriate Sorry for the size disparity
  24. Hi all, I'm here with my first concepts for these boards, a refresh of my current school, the University of Western Ontario (UWO). It is a school located in London, Ontario, and athletically they compete in something called Ontario University Athletics (OUA), a division of Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS). I may do a refresh of some other OUA schools if there's enough interest, but for now I'm starting with Western. For a little background, here are their current logos and football uniforms. A decent identity (especially for canadian college football) but it could use some work. Logos My main challenge in creating these logos was that it's hard to make a silhouette of a horse running, have a team named "Mustangs", and not look like you're ripping off SMU. For the horse logo, I basically cleaned up the current one, removing superfluous details like the eye, mouth, mane and tails (seriously, six tails? WTF Western). For the full primary, I used Conrads FAU bold font to recreate the current primary. I liked that it had the traditional look and feel of a block font with some modern touches. Football Uniforms I am mostly ok with the current Under Armour uniforms (hooray, no Nike!) but I still felt they could use some improvement. My most drastic change was in removing silver (or gray) from the identity completely. Although this color (and essentially these uniforms) were used when Western won 4 Vanier Cups (equivalent to a national championship) in the 1970's, I still think it is unnecessary. Although this is based purely on anecdotal evidence (mainly from me going to the school lol), Western students are fiercely proud of having purple as a primary color, and I think it's a really unique feature of their scheme. Therefore, I sought to focus the uniforms on purple. Western introduced purple helmets a couple years back and I really liked them. Since I was ditching silver and focusing on purple I decided to make these the full time helmets, albeit with the simplified horse logo and a white facemask. The uniforms use the bold two-stripe pattern from recent Mustangs uniforms, but obviously without silver. White pants would be used for both the primary home and away sets, with purple pants being worn for Homecoming and special games, like crushing playing Queens. With these, I hoped Western could create a really timeless look with some nice modern elements. I used lancealot's template from Page 19 of the Templates thread at the top of this board (sorry I can't give better attribution, not really sure where it's from other than that). I also used Conrad's UA Highlight font, as I wanted an Under Armor font and felt this was the one that fit best with the identity I was going for. C&C is appreciated, and thanks for looking. I'd eventually like to get better at logo design, but I'd love some feedback on my uniform designs as well.
