  3. NHL Adidas Concepts

  4. NBA Broadcaster "Player Cards" Concepts

    I don't know if this was done already in this forum, but I was inspired seeing basketball cards in the 90s made for NBA announcers. I thought I'd try it out with some of today's commentators. Inspiration: Reggie Miller (TNT) Ralph Lawler (LA Clippers) Jeff Van Gundy (ESPN) I also made one of Mike Gorman (Boston Celtics), but I scrapped it because it looked bad.
  5. NCAA Football Uniform Concepts

    I love watching college football and I like to see how teams change their uniforms over the years. Most of those changes have been for the better but there's still some that changed for the worse or have just always been bad. In this thread I'm not going to do redesign every team's uniform. I'm only going to redesign FBS teams that I thought have bad uniforms or could use some slight changes (which is around 30 teams). I'll try to give some type of explanation for teams I didn't change at some point too. I'm not going to post these in a specific order. And just because I post only a home, away, and alternate uniform that doesn't meant helmet, jerseys, and pants can't be mixed around. Teams I have done: Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Fresno State, Georgia Tech, Hawaii, Houston, Indiana, Kansas, Louisville, Nevada, Northern Illinois, Oregon State, TCU, Tulsa, Wisconsin, Western Michigan Teams I plan on doing: UCLA, Arkansas State, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Louisiana-Monroe, Louisiana-Lafayette, Bowling Green, Southern Miss, North Carolina State, East Carolina, Texas-San Antonio, Texas-El Paso, UAB, North Texas, Charlotte, Akron, Kent State On to the concepts... Central Michigan Chippewas (current uniform) Home Uniform: Away Uniform: Alternate Uniform: -Normal glossy helmets -Unique pattern on shoulders and pants. The pattern might be a little too much, but I'd rather see a team try something different than use a similar template than other Adidas schools. -Added "Chippewas"/"Central Michigan" to front of jersey Up Next: EMU
  6. I've been posting my NFL concepts for a few months, but I've been doing them just one at a time. I've gotten some nice feedback (thanks) but a single concepts they do seem to disappear rather quickly. I've decided to gather them altogether, along with a few new ones (like the following Cowboy concept), which seems to be the preferred way most of us do this. As always, let me know what you think. Starting with the NFC East,
  7. NHL Outdoor Games Ideas

    This is Where I will post my concepts for potential Outdoor Games that I think the NHL should consider, and will even write mini proposals We start off with a crazy idea I has for a Florida outdoor game, a stadium series probably. First off, it would take place in Raymond James Stadium (the Bucs home), which in the winter can go down to as low as 40 F, perfect to sustain ice for a perfect amount of time. With some nice planning, this would not be much of a hassle. As to why to do this you ask? These two teams are very unknown and do not have any attention going to them. A NBCSN game and outdoor game in Florida would attract much press attention. Also although I do not agree with most southern market NHL teams, I feel that Tampa Bay has a very passionate fan base and does deserve this. Now for the aesthetics of it, the Florida Panthers whole theming would be around the sun and heat, as they do represent most of Florida and many of their logos do indeed. For this I made the Panthers uniforms have the rays of the sun on the bottom stripe as well as more red and yellow then usual. The Lightnings uniform have the grey color of storm clouds, using all 4 of their colors rather then just 2. For the actual presentation of the arena the arena would be set up with palm trees all around the outskirts similar Minnesota's pine tree display. There would be a small picture above the arena of a sun facing off against a storm, pushing against one another. This would be between the logos. When the Bolts come out lightning coils will activate as they walk in. When the Panthers walk in fire will erupt followed by gold-ish smoke. Worst case scenario it all melts. Also I feel its only appropriate to have both team goal horns go off. Any Ideas for the next one?
  8. UPDATING VINTAGE LOGOS

    I'm a big fan of vintage logos so I decided to try my hand at updating the Texas Longhorns logo. C & C is always welcomed! *EDIT* Here's an index of all the updated logos done as of 2/16/2015 in this thread courtesy of Doyle524 & davidmiller5. Thank you! http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/95922-updating-vintage-logos/?p=2209439
  9. Skip to end of series for all 32 teams together After just finishing up my NFL series, I've decided to tackle the NHL. Like my last thread, my goal here is to tastefully modernize without going too crazy. Some of the designs will be a complete overhaul, while some will just be minor changes to perfect the look. Also, I will be expanding the league by 2 teams in the West. One in the Central and one in the Pacific to even out both conferences to 16 teams. I'm not going in any particular order here so these will just come as I have ideas and finish. As always, C&C is greatly appreciated and I hope you all enjoy! 1/32 -- Winnipeg Jets First up is the Winnipeg Jets. Jets fans have always taken their hockey seriously and have a very strong brand and sense of pride in their team. I wanted to go with a classic/sleek design here. When the Jets released their sweaters, I was never a fan of the double blue. In my concept below, I have removed the lighter shade of blue. Also of note, I removed the shoulder patches. While I really do like the logo, I have decided that the design works better without them. Home/Road/Alternate Sweater The home jersey is primarily dark blue. The jersey crest remains unchanged. Striping is consistent on the sleeves and the waistline. It features a thick white bottom stripe with a thinner silver stripe above. Numbers are white with a silver outline. Collar is two toned with silver on the top and white on the bottom. The collar laces have also been removed as I feel like the pointed collar ties in better with the sharpness. The away sweater is much like the home with white becoming the primary. New here is a blue yoke which comes down to a point just above the sleeve numbers as opposed to the traditional rounded yoke. I feel that this blends well with the design, especially the tip of the Jet in the logo. Numbers are now blue with a silver outline. The third sweater is a white alternate. I thought this would be fitting and they could wear it for special occasions such as "White outs" as they have had in the past. Essentially it is the road jersey with the Jets wordmark angled across the front.
  10. Grateful Dead Design (Request)

    Hey guys! I saw some Grateful Dead logos recently and I thought that they were easy to plop a roundel logo in the skull and some colors on the sides so I thought I could make a quick concept with them. They are just pictures, not signatures or wallpapers, but I thought a good kick of nostalgia for the older folks might do some good. If you know of a team with a roundel logo or any round logo, just put a comment down below! I can get the approximate colors for every team in the NHL, NBA, NFL,MLS, EPL and MLB. I will try my best to find the right colors for foreign teams. If you would like to request some designs made for you, feel free to comment in this format: Team Name Preferred Logo Any other requirements (Certain colors, throwbacks, etc.) This is definitely not an only-requests post. I would LOVE any constructive criticism in the comments and will take any suggestions into consideration. Please cut me some slack if they're not Hi-def 9000p, I'm just using Microsoft 1997 with Microsoft Paint. I don't have the money or the material to make my first-time concepts like a professional graphics designer would. (but I sure wish I could!) I cannot guarantee when your request will be done, because I don't know how many requests I will get. The Grateful Dead designs that you see above you were invented by me. I have seen designs like this before, so I'm not saying I'm original or anything. TABLE OF CONTENTS FOR INITIAL REQUESTS (in order of request date, i will do first come first serve) 1. zigzag (Completed) 2. BostonStrong13 (love the sig) (Completed) 3. NOLAPelicans23 4. 5.

  13. NIKE x NBA

    So I haven't posted on here in a while but got bored and decided to play around with some NBA concepts. Have 15 done so far so I'm going to progressively post those while working to finish off the league. No real structure here, some home uniforms, some away, even some alternates, just whatever I think looks good. As always C&C are welcomed greatly, please let me know what you think! First up, one of my simpler designs with the 76ers! Tried to go for a very classic looking jersey, while emphasizing the great red white and blue color scheme present. Next up is the Warriors. Didn't change too much of the jersey base, just adding smaller improvements that I thought looked sharp. Also scrapped the pants and went with a more "warrior" looking design. And to round out my first set, is the Nets! Once again going for a very classic look on the jersey, with a very simple design on the pants.
  14. NHL Concepts

    This is a series I've started on another app. It's my ideal uniforms for each team created on NHL17. This is my first ever topic, so be generous with the C&C please, but feedback/criticism is welcomed. Enjoy!
  15. SBA logos

    Hey everyone I recently had some free time, between doing my class projects, so for fun I whipped up some quick logos for a men's basketball league I play in back home. What do you guys think? C&C always welcome.
  16. West Virginia Mountaineers football concept

    Thinking about expanding my college football concepts... here's one for WV... back to basics as usual. C and C appreciated.
  17. Hartford Whalers Back to the NHL

    Ah yes, the Hartford Whalers. Today, everybody loves the Whale. Everybody wants to see the Whale return. Of all the NHL teams that no longer exist, perhaps none are more popular and remembered more fondly than the Hartford Whalers. I personally loved the Whalers because of their unique logo, that wonderful marriage between a "W" and a whale tail to come together and form a hidden "H" in the middle. During their 18 years in Hartford, the team qualified for the NHL playoffs just eight times, with seven of those appearances coming as the fourth-place team in their division, originally the Norris and later the Adams. In five of their playoff seasons they finished with a losing record, including a 26-41-13 performance during the 1991-92 season, and only once did they advance beyond the first round. My question is, could the Hartford Whalers return? , If so, what would their logo and uniform concepts look like?
  18. I've never posted a hockey concept before. I just recently got a template together, so I thought I'd try it out. I had a lot of fun making it. Thoughts?
  19. Greetings All! After loving and enjoying the concepts section for ages I've decided to start my own MLB series. I'm using paint but I've tried to make these as clean as humanly possible. I'll be doing all 30 MLB teams, going by division, releasing a new team every week day. Any sleeve patches or interesting sleeve details can be seen in the little window above the stirrups. More complex or integral sleeve features like numbers or patterned designs will be put on the uniform. I've tried to make each concept feasible while also taking a few risks. Most of these will be minor tweaks, fixing annoying details in otherwise great designs. For a few teams I've made big changes. All comments and criticism are welcome. I will try to cite best as possible if I've used a logo I found anywhere other than on the main Sportslogos page or if there's a design out there that I think is just better than what I've done. Thank you all! Let's start with the Atlanta Braves: The Braves have two good home looks in their white and cream kits and its a real case of overload. So I've looked back to the Hank Aaron Milwaukee Braves and combined them into a single set. Simple navy piping (including belt loops) now coexists with the tomahawk wordmark. I love the dark tomahawk from the 50's and I've incorporated it here along with the socks striping from that era. I noticed a while ago that you could use the cross bar on the capital "A" in Atlanta and extend it so it for the cross in the "t." I've seen it done elsewhere a couple of times so this is my attempt to create that effect. For an alternate I've combined the early '70s feathered sleeves with the satin uniforms worn by the Boston Braves in the '40s for a brighter more colorful look, especially for night games.
  20. MLB Tweaks: Rockies Updated

    This new series will be a collection of updates to concepts from my MLB: Project 30 series, and will focus on improving identity cohesion, diversifying color schemes in the league, and building upon my ideas. Let's start this series off with a team that I felt could use more identity cohesion/a more modern touch, the Minnesota Twins. The Twins attempted to smooth out their identity when they moved to Target Field, but they managed to screw it up. Instead of modernizing the poorly-rendered throwback script to fit with their "Minnesota" script, they opted to update the Metrodome-era wordmark and maintain the Metrodome-era underlines on the scripts. They also created color balance issues on the road uniform and on the alternates, and the addition of the new home uniform only hurts the identity cohesion even more. In my attempt to fix this, I thought back to my concept and decided to create a more thorough revamp. I started out by updating the throwback script to fit in with the "Minnesota" script, while still maintaining the signature "T." That way, the team can completely steer away from Metrodome-era imagery without having to use a wonky script. The logos have been updated to match this new script, and the primary now uses the "navy-first, red second" order. The "TC" logo has also been given a revamp. Inspired by The Admiral's mockup, I set about tying the "T" in with the script "T" and using a slab-serif "C." I decided to maintain some of the original "TC's" width in both letters, as I feel the width did work in the logo's favor. The "M" is meant for fauxback merchandise, and uses the "Minnesota"-script's "M." The uniforms are similar to my original design for their uniforms, except that the primary is now on the sleeves, and the sock stripe pattern has changed. Instead of the Senators-inspired pattern, they now use the old Minnesota Vikings' sleeve stripe pattern. Pinstripes remain on the home uniform, as the Twins are one of the few teams that can pull off the pinstriped home uniforms. I mixed it up a little bit with the alternates. There is now only one softball top, the one with the "Twins" wordmark (which still has a pair of pinstripe-less pants, as pinstriped pants look terrible with softball tops). The alternate is a fauxback to the 1987-2009 road uniform, using this set's "Minnesota" script and an updated "M" cap logo and "TC" socks. I felt that the road pinstripes would be an excellent homage to the Metrodome-era road uniform, while still incorporating the updated Target Field-era elements. I feel this makes the Twins' identity more cohesive and more modern, eliminating outmoded elements and preserving its character. C+C is greatly appreciated!
  21. I am in the process of putting together a Las Vegas Raiders rebrand for when they relocate. I am just getting started with the uniforms, but I wanted to get feedback before I did the away uniforms and color rush uniforms. I am incorporating the famous welcome to las vegas sign as a major part of the rebrand. This will be their inaugural season patch and the star from the sign will be implemented throughout the set. As always C&C is greatly appreciated!
  22. Well, after seeing @FinsUp1214's MLB series, it got me inspired to make concepts again. I've tried to learn other art programs, but I always end up getting flustered, so I've chosen to stick to what I know for this series: MS Paint. Anyways, the 1st team: The Anaheim Angels. Seriously, the "Los Angeles" & "of" aren't needed at all. For the Angels, I wanted a set that was different but also showed history for the team. I decided to use the 1971 logo as the basis for the concept as I've always adored that logo. The jerseys themselves are a blend of the 1960's, 1970's, The "Angels In The Outfield" set & the 2007-Now jerseys. As for each colour, it's a blend of RBG values from each era that creates the Navy (They've used 3 different shades), Grey (2 variations, but also mixed with the light blues used by the team during the 00's) & Red that these Angels wear. I also feel like the Angels are a team that can pull off dressing in various setups, so I gave them 3 hats to wear. I also decided Navy was best to use on the Road given their love of using the current reds at home. Let me know watcha think & maybe give me a suggestion on who to do next. P.S. Does anyone know if I can get any MLB fonts somehow? I can't seem to find any.
  23. College Basketball Concepts by Nike

    I know it is a little late to be starting up a college basketball concept, but I finally made a basketball template that I like. The template is based off of the Nike Aeroswift template which is currently used by many Nike teams, and I added a U-Neck version of it similar to what Michigan and Duke use. I will be making a set of 4 jerseys for each team that I do. I have already done a few teams, so I will start with Auburn. Jerseys -Text is similar to the Charles Barkley era and what they currently wear, leaving the copperplate gothic era behind. -Trim is similar to what they used to wear, but I wanted to change it up a little bit. -For the orange jersey, I'm not sure whether it would look better with blue and white switched or not. Pants -Stripe is similar to the one on their football helmet, with the logo on it towards the bottom.
  24. HELLO EVERYONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm back.. And i'll try to be more active here, lets see how that goes... NEXT POST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  25. Not an unpopular opinion... I hate the current uniforms worn by Tampa Bay. Another not unpopular opinion... I feel the uniforms the Bucs wore from 97 to 13 were nearly perfect, and they were stupid to move away from them, especially for the nightmare they ended up with. However, as easy as it is to say "just switch back", I don't really think that's all that feasible. There are a number of reasons why it isn't really done, primarily IMO because it would just feel like an admission that the change was a huge mistake. It was, obviously, but I don't think a franchise would be willing to swallow their pride enough to simple own up to it. Most of the examples that come to mind of a team doing an about face to a "classic" look are like the Giants, the Jets... uniforms that are truly classic in the 40 to 50 year sense. To quickly switch away from a modern uniform to a fairly recent, almost as modern uniform seems unlikely. From a marketing standpoint, I'd think it would be easier for them to sell a return of the creamsicles, as a "classic return"... which I don't believe they'd be willing to do either. However... While thinking about it, another model came to mind... that being the 2009 San Francisco 49ers. In '96, they went with their modern update, which was well received at first, but aged very poorly. The darkened red, multiple logo placements, and unnecessary black accents were very "90's" and, especially since it replaced a beloved classic, it wasn't surprising to see the 9ers move back. But they didn't move back completely... The new uniform, as much as it's thought of as a return of the old, is actually a modern update of the old that owes a bit to the 90'd look as well. It's simplified, and the 90's logo, which is in the forefront of team marketing, is held over. In that vein, here's something similar for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Take the uniform everyone loves so much... ... add a few elements from the current uniform (logos, brighter red) Put it on a more modern template (which eliminates the black collar and cuffs), go with a seemingly more classic but still unique font... And I got this; Full disclosure, I actually prefer the older logos, both on the helmet and on the sleeves, but again, my thought was a way to return to a better look without fully abandoning the new one. Thoughts?
