  1. In an alternate timeline where the National Football League never came to fruition, the American Football League (creative, I know) became the premier professional football league in the United States. Founded after World War II, in 1946, the AFL was formed from the remnants of the Midwest Professional Football League and the Eastern Football Association. Spearheaded by the Chicago Lions owner, Rupert T. Anderson, the AFL originally consisted of eight teams spread throughout the Midwest and Eastern seaboard and added two more teams, to bring the league to 10 members in 1948. Initially, the AFL struggled, but in 1950, attendance began to pick up as football fans realized that the AFL was playing quality football and the League took off, going on to expand 9 more times until 2002, when it reached its current state of 32 teams. Unlike the NFL, in our reality, the AFL does not have conferences. Instead, the league consists of 8 divisions: East, West, North, South, Pacific, Great Lakes, Atlantic, and Central. Each division has four member teams, which allows the 16 game schedule to break down like this: 6 division games (2 against each team) 4 games vs another division (yearly rotation) 6 games vs one team in remaining divisions (yearly rotation) The playoffs are an 8 team tournament consisting of division winners, culminating in the American Bowl (once again, very creative). Playoff teams are seeded 1-8 based on overall record, head-to-head, and playoff points (sum of opponents wins), as a tiebreaker. Now that I have gotten through some basic background of the league, let's move on to the meat of the project, the teams themselves. As far as uniform standards go, the rules are very similar to the NFL. One alternate or throwback uniform is allowed to be worn one time during the course of the regular season, but never in the post season. No manufacturer's mark is allowed on the uniform either, but the league does have a single uniform supplier, Apex Athletics, this Alternate Universe's equivalent to Nike or Adidas. The first division that I'll be presenting is the Great Lakes Division, home to three of the oldest teams in the American Football League. The Chicago Lions are one of the Charter members of the AFL and have been one of the most historically successful teams in the league. Having fallen upon hard times in recent years, the one bright spot in recent memory for Lions fans has been Randall Walker, perennial All-Pro running back and future Hall of Famer. The uniforms are a classic design in classic colors and have remained essentially unchanged for over 50 years, aside from an update to the logo in 2007. The Lions don't wear an alternate uniform and wear only one pair of pants. Another Charter member of the AFL, The Detroit Panthers derive their team logo and colors from the automotive industry. The Panthers sport a rather traditional uniform with simple striping and no embellishment. The Milwaukee Chiefs wear black and orange and are represented by a Native American Indian chief on their helmet and a drum logo on the sleeves. the uniform features a consistent, traditional striping pattern across all elements and colors. The alternate uniform is a throwback to the uniforms the team wore in its early years with legendary Head Coach, Chip Hansen. Todd Wolters is the Chiefs' star veteran quarterback who lead the team to American Bowl Championships in 2009 and 2011. The Minnesota Bruins are the youngest of the teams in the Great Lakes Division, being established in 1977. The team recently removed its northwester stripe from the sleeves and added their iconic bear paw logo to the sleeves. Mark Denton is the Bruins star Middle Linebacker, one of the more popular players in the league, known for his mullet haircut and extensive use of eye-black. Well, Tha'ts it for the Great Lakes Division. Thanks for taking a look and I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone has to say. Any and all comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

  3. Nike NFL Jersey concepts

    Hi all, I got bored one-day and decided to use Nike's teambuilder website to re-design some NFL uniforms Up first: The Carolina Panthers I like Carolina's design right now. Simple and clean. I wanted to keep that going and add a little to it. The home jerseys stay black with white numbers and a light blue outline. However I added the Panthers across front in light blue and put some light blue sleeves on it. Also a light blue/white stripe across the middle. The away jersey follows the same design as the home jersey with a some color swaps to fit the jersey. The alt light-blue jersey also works as the color rush jersey. Let me know what you guys think! Next up will be the Arizona Cardinals
  4. (Updated) I have updated the main post so the finalized renderings are seen first. (Still debating over final numbers. Both based off current Eagles font, but modified) Here is the remainder of the blog for how the above were created. Look through and comment I will update the finals if suggestions and changes are warranted. **** ORIGINAL POST BELOW ***** Okay, I've heard lots of talk about modernizing a throwback classic Eagles uniform but haven't seen any good renderings for what the single vision is for this. So, I took the time and created a one. There is too much discussion to me about "Kelly Green". It's more than that. It's bringing back tradition and having an identity that the loyal fan base can relate to. Lots of Kelly Green advocates seem to just want the "old" back. And this annoys the Millennials who don't care about the past...preferring cool. I just want green back (not some hipster made up color) and would love to see a return of silver. To me, the Eagles' colors should be green, silver and white. Agree??? I feel these would be some of the best uniforms in football...home or away. Your input is appreciated to fine tune them. Notes: Green - Not Kelly (50/60s), and not as dark as 80's. Hopefully modernly in between (jersey would have modern shiny shoulder/chest) Silver - The silver has a slight green tint to make it unique (pants would be shiny material) No black - removed from wing logo (any black seen is outline of drawings only) Facemask - Gray, not shiny silver Concept - Closest is Vick era throwback 50's (with shoulder stripes everyone comments on), mixed with the 80's (without overdoing the stripes), and utilizing modern helmet wing and materials

  6. Updating the Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls logo, at least in my opinion, is in much need of an update, as classic as it is. With inspiration from the Windy City Bulls logo, I decided to update this classic logo into a much less dated and cooler design. Let me know what you think. OLD: NEW:
  7. NY Rangers Logo Revamp

    Hey y'all, Decided to try and revamp the New York Rangers' classic logo. Currently, their logo set is a bit cluttered, taking on multiple fonts and styles mixed from both the 90s and the 40s-60s. Some quick descriptions: Color: Held constant from current logo set 1. Primary: Keeping the same general shield style as the current logo, although there are two major changes. The first change being a font shift back to an adjusted form of the 1940s-60s font that the Rangers used. The second change is the "Rangers" now reads step-style, rather than simply diagonally. 2. Lady Liberty Alternate Returns: Due to the seemingly universal demand for the return of the lady liberty alternate logo used until the late 2000s, I brought it back, adjusted and improved in multiple ways. The first change is the colors are updated to reflect the same colors in the scheme currently used. The second change is the new font, which same style as the one used in the primary. The third, although minor, is the adjusted shield, which now has rounded curves near the bottom, whereas the older version had sharp diagonal sides. The fourth change is the addition of the four stars, representing the four Stanley Cups the Rangers have won. 3. NY Pride Secondary/partial: Finally, I wanted a simpler logo that could effectively be used on alternate merchandise, rather than the more complex Lady Liberty. It involves the same font as the primary and alternate, featuring a silhouetted Rangers shield. It is in similar style to the Rangers proposed Winter Classic logo, while being a tad more modern. Lemme know what y'all think and if you have any suggestions, please tell me.
  8. Westeros Football League

    WESTEROS FOOTBALL LEAGUE What's up everyone. For my first post I am proud to present a project I have been working on for quite a bit. If you're a fan of Game of Thrones and the NFL, then this may be for you. The project takes the question, "What if Westeros had its own professional football league?", and brings it to life. For those that are unfamiliar, Westeros is the main continent of the World of Ice and Fire, and the setting of the very popular HBO show, Game of Thrones. Based off the best-selling book series by George RR Martin, Game of Thrones just wrapped up its seventh season. With the NFL season starting, I thought it would be a great time to present this series. Without further ado, here it is. THE TEAMS Each team is based off one of the major houses in Westeros. The teams' uniforms and branding draw from different aspects of each house such as the house sigil, the house words, characters attire, and more. You may also notice some teams draw inspiration from NFL teams as well. I have decided to begin with twelve teams to keep things simple, however, there is definitely the possibility of expanding beyond that in the future.

  10. This is my first time trying my hand at graphic design, and I wanted to see what others thought. I'm not an artist, and I don't have an incredibly deep understanding of graphic design- I assume what I drew has bad vectoring, but I couldn't tell you the first thing about what vectors are, or what adding the suffix 'ing' to the word vector actually means. So if this is offensively amateur, feel free to let me know and I'll scrub this post! Just wondering if this is anything.
  11. WELCOME TO THE FANTASY HOCKEY LEAGUE! I created the fantasy hockey league in March of 2017 and orginally is a league with 16 team members divided into the Eastern and Western Conferences. Both Conferences have 8 teams and two divisons of 4 each. Each team plays another from the other conference and other divison twice (once home and once away), and plays the members in their own division four times (twice home and twice away) for a grand total of 36 games. At the end of a season, the top two in each division will enter the Fantasy Hockey Championship Playoffs. The 8 teams that make the FHCP will play their divison rival in a best of 7 series and continue until two teams meet in the Fantasy Hockey League Championship. Team names and divison pairings will come closly but feel free to help me with designing logos and jerseys! Expanison will come and most importantly enjoy!
  12. FBS Concept Uniforms

    Over time, I have been working on concept uniforms for all 130 FBS football teams. I did the universities that are currently planning on staying or joining the FBS level. My designs were intended to be very unique and creative. I have had a lot of fun during this designing process while creating new uniform ideas. I will start uploading the uniforms for each team in alphabetical order. Let me know what you guys think and which ones are your favorites. Hope you enjoy!

  14. New York Knicks Concept

    So, if anyone knows me well, I do not mess around with NBA often. As far as tradition goes, I know the most popular teams but other teams I'm not so sure on. In this case, I'm pretty sure the Knicks have some foundation with a traditional look, no? Well, this goes what I believe to be in a very different direction the Knicks have ever gone to. To me, it's a mix of traditional design with modern design. Not sure if I should continue this concept further (full on primary, secondary marks, white jersey, court design). Depending on the responses I may continue this. Hopefully, there is something to build on. Let me know! Template found @Webpixum .com
  15. If Nike and the Dallas Mavericks decided to go all in on the Skyline design this season...... Special shoutout to Riley Gisseman for the jersey template. Please let me know what you guys think!
  16. AFC (week 2 schedule)

    So because I have no life as many of you guys don't either, I decided to make a CCSLC account. I did this so I can present my Madden CFM league thing. I took all of the AFC teams and relocated them to almost all of the cities on CFM that you can relocate to. There are 18 options, but since there's only 16 teams I didn't use Salt Lake City or Houston, because the team name/logo options sucked (with the exception of the Oilers.) I left the NFC teams alone and pretend they don't exist. What I do is simulate the games so I can watch and not control them. I will post weekly highlights and scores of the league when I can. Here are the rules and set up of the league: - A simulated fantasy draft was held at the beginning of the first season. - 7 min quarters, but game mode is set to "fast" so the scores are realistic to a real NFL game - 12 games per season, excluding preseason (each team plays an NFC team 4 times, but it counts as a forced win for the AFC team) -AFC championship counts as the final "championship" (super bowl is simulated and ignored) Here is an overview of the teams, but I'll post in depth each team later (uniforms, roster, etc): East: -London Black Knights -London Bulldogs -Brooklyn Bulls -Dublin Celtic Tigers North: -Columbus Aviators -Toronto Thunderbirds -Chicago Tigers -Portland Snowhawks South: -Oklahoma City Bisons -Mexico City Diablos -Orlando Sentinels -Memphis Steamers West: -Austin Desperados -San Antonio Dreadnoughts -Sacramento Miners -Los Angeles Red Dragons
  17. NBA Nike Vapor Uniform Template

    Hey new member here I'm a full time designer that puts together Portland Trail Blazers edits, concepts, and more in my spare time. I recently put together a uniform concept for the Blazers right before they were officially unveiled and thought I'd share the template I made with you all. Details: - 1920 x 1080 - Fully customizable - PSD (CS6+) Download Link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Byc9BKc1_l2bVXA5cDFCVzZ4MDQ/view?usp=sharing
  18. Hello! This is my first ever uniform/logo concepts I have ever done. I am a graphic designer on Instagram, and I am taking a jab at concepts for the first time. Constructive criticism and Feedback is very welcomed!
  19. Boston Bruins Logo Redesign Concept

    The Boston Bruins Logo is timeless, and that's why I decided to redesign it. ...Wait what? One of the best challenges is designing a new logo that "Cannot be made any better." By no means am I saying it's better, but I had a blast making it. What are your thoughts?
  20. Here are my NCAA D1 basketball court concepts using DarthBrooks template. Some of the courts might be boring/traditional and some might be considered a little extreme. I have been working on these on and off for over a year and have around half the teams done. I will be posting them in alphabetical order by conference (A-10 first, WCC last). Just because I made a concept for a team doesn't mean I don't like their current court. A few things you might notice... I am a fan of two-tone courts when used by the right team (I wouldn't have two-tones with traditional schools like Indiana, Duke, UCLA, etc.). The more unique logos the school has the more I tried to incorporate them into the court. Once in a while I might use a logo in a way it wasn't intended (ex. Marquette eagle logo used on court). Some of the conference logos might be a year or 2 out of date (A-10, ACC, Big 12). I didn't include websites, twitter handles, hashtags, etc. (except for one;TCU) on the out-of-bounds area. I probably only looked up 10% of the team's current court so some might be very similar to their current court on accident. Here are links to all the posts of the courts... A-10 (1st half below, 2nd half); ACC (1st half, 2nd half); America East (1st half, 2nd half); American (1st half, 2nd half); Atlantic Sun (1st half, 2nd half); B1G (1st half, 2nd half); Big 12 (1st half, 2nd half); Big East (1st half, 2nd half); Big Sky (1st half, 2nd half); Big South (1st half, 2nd half); Big West (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 1 (1st half, 2nd half, extra); CAA (1st half, 2nd half); C-USA (1st half, 2nd half); Horizon (1st half, 2nd half); Ivy League (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 2; MAAC (1st half, 2nd half); MAC (1st half, 2nd half); MEAC (1st half, 2nd half); Missouri Valley (1st half, 2nd half); Mt West (1st half, 2nd half); NEC (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 3 (1st half, 2nd half); Ohio Valley (1st half, 2nd half); PAC-12 (1st half, 2nd half); Patriot League (1st half, 2nd half); SEC (1st half, 2nd half); Southern (1st half, 2nd half); Southland (1st half, 2nd half); Summit League (1st half, 2nd half); Sun Belt (1st half, 2nd half); SWAC (1st half, 2nd half); WAC (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 4; WCC (1st half, 2nd half); Conference Tourney Courts (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4); UPDATES Round 5; A-10 (1st half) Davidson Wildcats Dayton Flyers Duquesne Dukes Fordham Rams George Mason Patriots George Washington Colonials LaSalle Explorers
  21. NBA G League Court Concepts

    After making court concepts of all the NCAA D1 schools, I decided to do the NBA G League (formerly NBA D-League) next. Obviously many of these designs couldn't currently be used due to NBAGL teams sharing arenas/courts with other teams but it's still fun to design them. I didn't get as creative as I did with the NCAA courts because the NBA/NBAGL are still generally more traditional with their designs and I still want the concepts to be realistic. I used DarthBrooks court template. I will post them in groups of 5 (except for the last group which will be 6). A few things you might notice... The more unique logos the team has the more I tried to incorporate them into the court. Many of the courts are similar to their parent team's court. I added the team's parent team logo to the upper left and lower right corners. I didn't include websites, twitter handles, hashtags, etc. on the out-of-bounds area. Delaware 87ers Erie Bayhawks Reno Bighorns Oklahoma City Blue Windy City Bulls
  22. Since Nike is going to be the new jersey supplier for the NBA I made some concepts to show my take on the new jerseys. I used the USA olympic jersey featuring a nike vapor jersey and made my own mockup on it, to get the realistic stitching details on the numbers and logo I used a photoshop action called realistic stitching action to make it look realistic as possible. I hope you guys enjoy! Half way done the other half of the NBA will be uploaded as soon as possible. Feedback would be helpful!!
  23. I've prepared some NHL concepts where I try and refresh team branding and uniforms. I'm trying to make the rest of the league fall more in line with what I've come to expect from Adidas. All teams get *some* sort of change from their current (Reebok) uniforms, although a few don't see much change at all (ie. Flyers, Leafs). I will accept C&C but I don't plan on making revisions to the uniforms unless I really feel compelled. I will be adding "Marquee Matchups" where teams use special uniforms. This is where C&C would be most useful, in suggesting matchups, uniforms, revisions, etc. I will use this first post as a HUB for the concepts: Metropolitan Battle of New York (NYI v NYR) Keystone Classic (PHI @ PIT) Stevens' Cup (WAS + MIN @ NJD) Ohio Classic (PIT @ CBJ) Atlantic Tribute (NJD v PHI) All-American Clash (STL v NYR) Atlantic Battle of Ontario (TOR v OTT) Governor's Cup (FLA v TBL) All-American Clash (WAS v DET) International Classic (BOS @ MTL) Norris Cup (CHI v DET) Hartford Classic (CAR v BUF) Central All-American Clash (NSH v COL) International Classic (VAN @ CHI) All-American Clash (MIN v STL) Battle of Wisconsin (MIN v CHI) All-Canadian Clash (TOR v WPG) Star Series (MIN v DAL) Pacific California Series (ANA + SJS @ LAK) Battle of Alberta (CGY v EDM) Battle of the Desert (ARI v VGK) Marquee of '93 (FLA v ANA) All-American Clash (VGK v LAK) Pacific Territories (SJS v VAN)
  24. Hey there folks, I thought I would take some time and post my concepts for a professional kübb league aptly named the "Professional Kübb League". For those of you (read: most of you) who are not familiar with the game of kübb, it is a lawn game similar to horseshoes wherein wooden sticks (or, if you want to be pretentious (which I do), kastpinnars) are thrown at wooden blocks (or kübbs) with the intent of knocking them down. Here's a You Tube video showing the game in action (ignore the femurs-and-skulls talk). This game is believed to derive from the Swedish island of Gotland; as a result, it is primarily played in the United States in areas with substantial Scandinavian populations. I've played kübb with friends and family for years, and it's a game best played with a beer in your free hand. With that in mind, I thought it would be fun and somewhat incongruous to imagine a world in which kübb was a serious spectator sport that drew crowds similar in size to American soccer and tennis matches. And so it came to pass that the Professional Kübb League was born. The League was founded in 1993 by a group of college kids in Minnesota and Wisconsin who formed teams in Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Eau Claire, and Madison. Since the game itself does not take very long, they decided to form games into matches consisting of a best-of-5 series. Each team has four players with two players per team in each game, with the requirement being that each player needs to participate in at least one game. As the game gained popularity, it added teams in a first wave of expansion to Rochester and La Crosse in 2002 and Des Moines and Milwaukee in 2014. The league logo is located below, celebrating the game's Swedish heritage with a blue-and-yellow color scheme and showcasing the five kübbs on one's back row and the king in the middle. I got the crest shape idea from Mockba's excellent League du Nord series, which is the source of a lot of my aesthetic inspirations for this league. East Division Eau Claire Kings La Crosse Crosscuts Madison Woodchucks Milwaukee Growlers West Division Des Moines Dragons Minneapolis Kübbs Rochester Berserkers Saint Paul Gray Ducks League Map I have all the squads done and intend to release one every other day starting tomorrow to get some C&C between teams. In the meantime, let me know what you think of the league logo and feel free to express your emotions about this league in whatever manner you see fit.
  25. MLB World Series Concept Logo

    NCAA Tournament is winding down, MLB Opening Day a week away or less, and the release of MLB The Show 17 tonight, I thought it would be fun to show you a World Series Concept Logo I've been working on. World Series Logos from years past My Concept for the 2017 World Series: A navy and steel blue gradient diamond with a red interior outline and white bases and home plate. Four pennant flags (four because two didn't look like enough) I guess you could say the four stand for the following: 1 to represent the NL, 1 to represent the AL. 1 for the NL champion and 1 for the AL champion (but I think that's reaching a bit). The World Series in a "Championship Gold" and "Autumn Brown" gradients. Date in white above, and the MLB league logo at the bottom. Improvements: - Wondering if MLB league logo should be a bit smaller to center with home plate. - I had a baseball logo that I was going to put in the two pennant flags but didn't look right to me and wasn't sure where else to put it. - World Series seems like it's not truly centered, which according to my program I use it is, so maybe it's my eyes playing tricks on me. As usual, C&C appreciated. (The timer on MLB The Show 17 on my PS4 is moving so slow...)
