  1. The Cincinnati Reds have worn their current set since 2007, and while it is an improvement over the BFBS era of 1999-2006, I have never been a fan of the black-billed road caps and gimmicky font. Is it time for a change? If so, which direction should they go? I will forever be a fan of the simple yet elegant set of 1968-71, and I'd love to see it return. I've said it before, but if they had just kept that look from that point forward, they would be considered unchangeable classics along with teams like the Dodgers, Yankees, and Cardinals. While I loved the pullovers and elastic waistbands as a kid in the 1970s, I now regret that the greatest seasons in the history of the franchise happened in those, rather than the more traditional set that proceeded them. As for the current set, they have lasted longer than most in the history of the franchise. Here's a rundown of their previous looks dating back to 1939, ordered by length of tenure: 1972 - 1992 (21 seasons) -- Pants leg stripe and second red sleeve stripe added 1988-92 1939 - 1955 (17 seasons) -- Blue highlights 1939-46, Red highlights 1947-55 2007 - Present (12 Seasons) 1999 - 2006 (8 seasons) 1993 - 1998 (6 Seasons) 1961 - 1966 (6 Seasons) 1956 - 1960 (5 Seasons) 1967 - 1971 (4 Seasons) -- Pinstripes on home uniform for 1967 season only

    Jordan Brand x NCAA Women's Volleyball

    I've been attending as many of Michigan's women's volleyball home games as I can this season, for the first time ever, because one of my sisters likes to go and my dad bought her season tickets. Thanks to that chaperoning, I've become more interested in the sport, as well as (of course) the uniforms. NCAA women's volleyball already has its own design language—or at least its own templates provided by major manufacturers—and I wanted to create a concept series where I can engage with that language, adding in some outside influences that are more familiar to me. And so, with Jordan Brand making the unprecedented move of not only outfitting Michigan basketball but also football next season, I started imagining a future where Jordan Brand decided to outfit women's volleyball, starting at Michigan, but then extending to all the other schools who have Jordan Brand contract. I believe that this wouldn't be as much of a stretch as Jordan Brand in football, since volleyball is a court sport just like basketball, and the first "volleyball-specific" Nike shoes were just renamed Nike basketball shoes. Accordingly, I'm going to take design cues from these schools' men's basketball teams and reappropriate them for women's volleyball uniforms. (I'm using men's basketball uniforms and not women's because, as women's volleyball is exceedingly more relevant than men's, men's basketball is more relevant than women's.) Even though Michigan basketball has never previously been outfitted by Jordan Brand, I imagine that JB will take full advantage of the ability for Michigan to once-again acknowledge the Fab Five, who pioneered a couple Nike shoes on their own, as well as introducing the baggy shorts and black socks to the college basketball crowd (which Jordan did for the NBA). Thus, I decided to carry over the trim and mismatching outlined numbers from those Fab Five-era uniforms (all 3 maize, blue, and white variations). I used the updated block Ms, though instead of including large ones on each leg of the shorts, I just stuck them on their current shorts and chest locations. Like I said, using design cues from past Jordan Brand or Jordan-esque men's basketball uniforms and reappropriating them for current Jordan Brand schools' women's volleyball unis. Here's how my first draft turned out: I have a few questions for C&C: I decided to go without a similarly-trimmed collar because it didn't look right connected to the Nike piping, but do you think I could use one?I don't know any Jordan Brand fonts besides the one for the Charlotte Hornets (which I used for this template). Any tips for one I could use for the jersey numbers and NOB?I'm just using the official color values off Michigan's brand guidelines page, but do you think I should use a more neon maize or darker blue?I'm not very scientific with my outlines (I just go with what looks right), but I feel like the blue jersey could use some thicker maize outlines for the trim. Or should I copy the Fab Five's trim completely and go maize-white-blue-white-maize?Oh, and shoutout to Lafarge for the original women's volleyball concept thread on CCSLC, from which I acquired a women's volleyball uniforms template and who also alerted me to the "solid jersey" rule passed by the NCAA in 2013.

    Cincinnati Reds Logo Concept

    Finally found some time to make concepts again and was playing around with a new tool I downloaded to mod my concept making software and came up with a Cincinnati Reds logo I thought looked worth sharing on here. It's a little simple and at first I thought it looked like a tourism poster or a secondary 2015 ASG logo. However, it is not in their actual colors, because I am planning to use it in my MLB redesign (which is NOT dead, just haven't had much time). Anyway, I'll stop blabbing and let the logo speak for itself. Thanks for reading!, ECUFan25

    Cincinnati Reds Logo Set Redesign

    Hey everybody, just got to making a baseball on Illustrator today. It turned out pretty well, so I decided to make a concept out of it. It looked like it would be best with the Reds, but this could go with many teams. Just did a quick logo set redesign for the Cincinnati Reds. Let me know if you have any suggestions. I'm not sure I like the font i'm using right now for the "open" roundel-style logos. Let me know as well if you have any font suggestions. This was just a spur-of-the-moment redesign, so I don't plan on making any uniforms (Plus, I know little about baseball.) Suggestions for improvement appreciated.
  6. As of today Cincinnati is officially with Under Armour, and there are two major changes right off the bat. First, the numbers will no longer be italic, which will look a lot cleaner. Second, UA has introduced the "Cincinnati Stripe", which will apear on all uniforms and is derived from campus landmarks: Press release and links to brand guide and Cincinnati stripe here: http://www.gobearcats.com/genrel/040215aac.html
  7. I'm working on another What-If series (it's been a loooooooooong time since I've done one) like my Ottawa Senators and Montreal Maroons series, and I'm at a loss for ideas. I'm all about thorough research and realism, so I want to do this right. So I'm coming for help so I can complete the series before I post. The idea is this: What if more WHA teams joined the NHL in the 1979 merger? Birmingham, Houston, Indianapolis, Cincinnati join the NHL. Birmingham Bulls join the NHL, so the Atlanta Flames last a few years longer with the regional rivalry. Instead of Atlanta moving to Calgary in 1980, the Birmingham Bulls move to Calgary in 1982. Atlanta still doesn't survive, and they move to become the Florida Flames in 1984. That alternate path is done. Houston Aeros join the NHL, see the success that Dallas did but years earlier. However, the Minnesota North Stars wouldn't move to Texas if the Aeros are already there, so in 1993 they move to San Jose to revive the Seals (the Seals WERE merged with the North Stars and technically the Sharks are the descendants of the Seals, so why not make it official?). I'm working on this. Colorado Rockies still move to New Jersey. Winnipeg Jets still move to Phoenix. Quebec Nordiques still move to Colorado. Hartford Whalers still move to Carolina. Anaheim Ducks, Ottawa Senators, and Minnesota Wild still become expansion teams. Tampa Bay Lightning, Florida Panthers, Columbus Blue Jackets, San Jose Sharks, Atlanta Thrashers/Winnipeg Jets 2 never exist. Now, here are the real questions: The Indianapolis Racers survive a very short time before moving to Nashville. I'm all ears for naming suggestions, but a racing theme is something I want to keep. Anybody have info on other possible team names that the Predators rejected? The biggest problem I'm having is this: The Cincinnati Stingers had numerous WHA attendance records and did well. I think they would have survived and taken the Blue Jackets' place. However, they looked exactly like the Bruins did, and with the Bruins losing the argument with Pittsburgh over the Black and Gold color scheme, they won't let it happen again. One of the conditions of Cincinnati joining the league is for a change of color scheme and jerseys. What colors make sense for the Stingers other than black and gold? Any thoughts on if that logo would change much over time? And I have two spots for expansion teams. Would the NHL simply expand to Winnipeg, or should they follow the Thrashers/Jets model? Columbus didn't happen because Cincinnati has a team. Where should that franchise go? I realize there are no concept here, yet. But I am hoping with some ideas, direction, and inspiration, I can make some great ones.

    NCAA HydroChrome Helmets Concept

    So i’ve been following this website for quite a long time now and let me say there is some amazing work on here. Ive decided to finally go ahead and throw out some of my conceptual ideas. So I decided to make some HydroChromed helmets since this is the new fad in college football. Let me know what you guys think, all c&c is appreciated. The Arkansas helmet would be HydroChromed with the nice shine, but was hard to present with the real tree camo texture. Also the yellow helmet with the wing is not oregon it is the University of Charleston in WV, there mascot is the golden eagles. It’s a small d2 school that i attended.

    Cincinnati Kings Concept

    My second soccer concept is finally done. The Cincinnati Kings are a team in the 4th-tier Premier Development League. They were once in the USL Second Division, but they self-relegated due to a few bad seasons. Maybe a new image will bring them back from the brink of obscurity? The first thing I did was change their crest. The one they have is on top, and my concept is below it... Nothing too extravagant here. The main attraction is that the ball, combined with the three dots, makes it look like a crown. The home kit... The colors are based on what they're wearing already, but with a few added frills. the front of the jersey has a subliminated image of Cincinnati's flag, complete with the city's motto which means "unity is strength." I didn't want the sponsor logo to block this out, so I moved it to the back of the shirt, below the number. Kroger is a grocery store chain, and since it's based in Cincinnati, it was a natural choice for a sponsor. The change kit: Basically the same thing except all pieces of the uniform are now red, to lessen the chances of a clash situation with another black team. The alternate: This special kit is a tribute to the Society of the Cincinnati. The Society of the Cincinnati is a historical, hereditary lineage organization with branches in the United States and France, founded in 1783 to preserve the ideals and fellowship of the American Revolutionary War officers. Cincinnati, which was just a small village back then, was named after the Society. Nowadays the Society promotes public interest in the American Revolution through its library and museum collections, exhibitions, programs, publications, and other activities. The colors of the kit are based on the Society's flag. The dark blue stands for America, and the white and sky blue stand for France, which played a major role in the Revolutionary War as well as the War of 1812. There you have it. What do you think? C&C, please and thank you.
