  1. Denver Broncos Redesign

    In my attempts to expand the sports I do designs for, I've decided to try football. I had the Jets redesign a while ago, but now I'm doing more. Here are my Denver Broncos. I was inspired by their slogan, "UNITED IN ORANGE" and their past uniforms. The jerseys they wear now are overly modern, and kind of confusing. These are a little more simple, and feature more orange than their current uniforms - save for the alternate. Home Away Alternate Color Rush I'm aware the template came from a college uniform, so it's not 100% exact, but aside from that, what do you think?
  2. Let me start by making something clear: This is NOT my concept and I claim no credit for it. I tried to find a thread with this via search and could not. Now that that is out of the way, This is a concept by Jesse Alkire that I found via Dribbble. I thought that everyone here would really appreciate it. There are some aspects of the concept that on paper would seem hokie or minor league like (topographic elevation lines as pinstripes)... but they REALLY work well and I could imagine seeing them on the field. Here is the link to his page and some images from the concept. ***Well just figured out that Jesse IS a member here... sorry for posting your work. This can be taken down if need be.***
  3. 2018 NHL All Star Weekend

    This was @JJ Anderes' and my entry into the HJC Pairs comp. We ended up winning it, so thanks to HJC and all who voted! Anyways, let's dig into this. The concept was to make some logos and uniforms for a future all star game. We chose to put the NHL's All Star game in Denver, Colorado. Below are JJ's logos, and my uniforms. It was a lot of fun working with JJ, and he definitely made some incredible logos. Thanks for watching!
  4. Denver Art Museum Redesign

    Sorry if this should be in the General Design section, but I didn't want to keep flooding it with concepts. Feel free to move this if you want. Here is the current logo for the Denver Art Museum. Bland, generic, and uninspired imo. Here are my redesigns, using a unique font, and with a logo playing off the building's one-of-a-kind architecture. Simple and modern are what I was going for. What do you think?
  5. Mile High - Colorado Rockies Rebrand

    After getting a little bored and thinking of teams in more sports than hockey that needed an update, I decided on the Colorado Rockies. I'm not sure about you guys, but from the moment I really started to really started to look at the Rockies' logo, I realized it was just crap. The font was outdated and just looked bad, and it was an odd mashup of wordmark and logo that just doesn't work. However, I tried to redo that while maintaining some of the logo's best aspects, and adding some new mountains and double purple. My goal for the redesigned Rockies was to be mostly black-free to create a more colorful and unique identity. Here is my initial product. With the primary logo, it is what I wanted it to be; a more simple, more purple, updated version of their current logo. I completely redid the mountains, which was my goal, as well as refined the shape and introduced a new font. However, when I look at the area under the mountains and around the "Colorado", something looks off. I can't put my finger on it, and I'd love if one of you guys could help me out. Here's a secondary logo I made pretty quickly. Not a ton to say, just a recolored Colorado flag 'C'. It'd make a good cap logo. In addition, I had some spare time and decided to photoshop my logo where the huge Rockies logo sign is at Coors Field. I was going to make jerseys, but I need to get more ideas and actually figure out how to make a good baseball jersey. What are your thoughts?
  6. Fresh off my NY Islanders by Adidas set, I'm back with a new Colorado Avalanche by Adidas project! The logos are essentially the same, just the Rockies-esque logo from this year is eliminated. The navy sticks around as a secondary color, bringing a double blue to the Avs. The home and away feature the navy blue as the new main color, relegating burgundy to an accent. The mountain striping returns, and pays homage to the Rocky Mountains the team is named for. The Colorado C stays on the shoulders, as a symbol that the Avalanche represent the entire state of Colorado. The alternate is also based off of the Colorado flag, with the C at the center of a white line. The steel blue and burgundy colors return as the main colors for the set. Well there ya go! Rip 'em apart!
  7. Denver Broncos new logo for 2016-17?

    I was talking with a friend yesterday who recently worked at a Denver sports merchandising company and he told me that the Broncos are going to be using a new logo for the 2016-17 season. The logo he was describing is a cross between the old "D" with a horse coming out of it, and the current Bronco head that was created in '97. He wouldn't go into any specifics as to how he knew this, but he told me it was going to happen. I know that new unis have been rumored from Paul Lukas, but I haven't heard about this logo change. I found a concept made by our own member Ren69 from 2013 that it is probably closest to, if this logo change does happen: -Great job by Ren69 btw. Anyone else heard anything about this?
  8. Denver Nuggets concept "Denver Pride"

    So this is my third NBA team concept and I've decided to do an NBA team that has never shied away from some funky designs. That team is the Denver Nuggets. For my design I decided to utilize some elements from the city of Denver itself as well as retouching retired designs from the franchise's past. My concept includes a primary logo, a secondary logo, a home jersey, a road jersey, and an alternate as well as some other ideas for another possible alternate jersey. C & C is always appreciated and I know that these designs are far from perfect so I appreciate it when people point things out so that I may improve this design. The Primary Logo: The Secondary Logo: Home Jersey: Road Jersey: Alternate Jersey: Alternate Concepts: If anything needs any explanation, please do not hesitate to ask. C & C appreciated!
  9. Denver Nuggies

    First concept in a bit, something I did a few months back. It's in the preliminary stages of what I would want it to be in the near future. I am going to add more to it including the Denver wordmark in the primary. Hand drawn "nuggets" wordmark and all. C&C appreciated. I know it is a simple design, I wanted to stay true to the mountains and am considering using the old 90's colors instead of these. Uniforms in the works for later:
  10. Denver Modernization

    So I saw some concepts that modernized old logos so I thought I'd give it a shot. I present to you... the new and (with C&C) improved... 1980s Broncos! I also made a plastic wrap effect version:
  11. I am designing an alternate universe league, complete with a history and team names, logos, uniforms, the whole shebang. I will essentially operate as the design company for the league, working with the owners to design the teams. Like a real-life league, most decisions will be partially up to the owner and partially up to the league. For example, each owner will pick a city, but the league will vote among 4 owner-provided options for nicknames. Owner picks team colors, pending league approval. Etc. It will be 2 leagues of 8-12 teams each with a week 16 championship game between the two league winners. I’m currently building a website for the league through which everyone can follow along, and this thread will contain all the history and designs, updated as they are created. I’m likely going to add people in waves. The league will start with 8 owners and expand from there over the course of the off season. NEWS: Scheduled unveilings: Feb. 11, 2014 Denver Drillers design unveiled. Feb. 18, 2014 Mexico City Aztecs design unveiled. Feb. 25, 2014 Lincoln Zephyrs design unveiled. March 4, 2014 Fremont Trolls (Seattle) design unveiled. March 11, 2014 Kentucky Mashers design unveiled. March 18, 2014 Memphis Kings design unveiled. March 25, 2014 Toronto Tops design unveiled. April 1, 2014 New York Griffins design unveiled. Thanks for watching! We are still in the recruiting phase, so team names and branding are down the road a bit, but to kick us off... The History of the CFA, part 1: A League Unto Itself The History of the Continental Gridiron Alliance, part 1: The Continental Football Conference On January 25, 1987, the Continental Gridiron Alliance was officially chartered as the Continental Football Conference. The announcement came a day later in New Orleans in an attempt to take advantage of the media coverage of Super Bowl XX and show that the league was serious about directly competing with the NFL. After the collapse of the USFL the previous year and in anticipation of the expiration of the 1982 NFL CBA, the league was formed as a direct competitor to the NFL with an eye on eventually merging with the older league. When the announcement of the league’s formation, meant to be an event seen around the world during Super Bowl coverage, the CFC was almost entirely ignored, as the excitement surrounding Super Bowl XX and the lingering disappointment in the USFL combined into media apathy for the new league. As the owners left for their home cities and the auspicious announcement stage was torn down and packed up, the NFL’s Chicago Bears defeated the New England Patriots 46-10. It would be the last Super Bowl for more than two years, as the 1987-88 NFL season was cancelled after seven games played by non-union replacement players. Due to a combination of an expired collective bargaining agreement that lead to a labor strike, an unwillingness on the part of NFL players to cross the picket lines, in part itself because of the perceived disrespect of using replacement players, and the CFC’s willingness to negotiate with and sign star NFL players, the CFC quickly built itself as a money-losing but legitimate competitor to the NFL during the 1987-88 season. The CFC became the CFA on April 24, 1993 after merger negotiations broke down with the NFL. As evidenced by its original name, the league was intended as a third conference for the NFL and owners were confident that such a merger would come quickly once it was clear they were willing to lose money in the short term in order to compete with the NFL. With the perfect storm of the strike, the replacements, and the deep pockets of the CFC owners, respectability and competition came quickly for the league. This first major break for the league came in week 4 of the 1987 season, as CBS began airing NFL games on tape delay in a negotiation tactic. CBS claimed that the ratings for the replacement games were so low that the NFL owed restitution due to language in the broadcast contract. By week 6, CBS had negotiated a low-value but highly publicized one-year deal with the CFC to air CFC games in the time slots usually occupied by NFL games. Meant to be a negotiating tactic against the NFL, ratings were soon high enough for CFC games, featuring former NFL stars such as John Elway, Joe Montana, and Lawrence Taylor, that the contract was extended through the next season at a 300% increase, with CFC games planned to be aired that next season on Sunday evenings after the day’s NFL games. When the NFL’s week 7 games were aired on CBS at as late as 3 a.m. Monday morning in East Coast markets and it became clear that a lengthy legal struggle with the network would be extremely costly and that the striking players would not return to work without a new CBA, the NFL cancelled the rest of its season. Shots were truly fired by the CFC when CFC teams managed to sign 6 of the top 10 NFL draft picks from the 1991 draft class, though the CFC had mostly depended on signing away free agent veteran talent from the NFL to that point. The “leftovers league” reputation that had been building over several years for the CFC was subverted and negotiations immediately began in earnest between the NFL and CFC for a joint draft in order to prevent a repeat of the 1991 situation. However, the NFL’s draconian requirements for the CFC teams, such as an “admission fee” paid to the NFL and the loss of first round picks for CFC teams for the first two years of the joint draft led to the CFC rejecting the agreement for the 1992 draft. The CFC would sign 9 of the top 10 NFL draftees. When another year’s worth of negotiations for a joint draft once again broke down ahead of the 1993 draft — the NFL had lifted many of its requirements but refused to even broach the subject of a merger, despite the CFC championship game slightly outdrawing the AFC and NFC championships — the CFC abandoned the idea of merging with the NFL and rebranded itself as the Continental Gridiron Alliance with the slogan “A League Unto Itself.”
  12. Colorado Rapids

    I was testing my new template and I came up with this Colorado Rapids concept. A touch of black and a classic cut collar for the home one; The design on the chest reclaims a part of the original logo for the away one. MLS 2013 font by Conrad
  13. ***SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATED JERSEYS. 80's colored blue concept on page 2 I know many people hate the Broncos pants and jersey stripes, but I, (being a local) really love their helmet and especially the helmet stripe. I Think their Type and numbering is unique to the NFL so I wanted to create a concept that incorporated the elements from their current design to a more simplistic "Nike-like" design. I also edited the colors to a more matte finish and not as bright orange. Also I still can't decide which color should be the home Orange or Blue. First Up: HOME OPTION 1 Next Up: Away LAST: HOME OPTION 2
  14. Jaguars Inspired Uniform Concept

    So last night I was watching the Broncos murder the Ravens, all while looking here at the concepts people have been putting together to fix the Jags. Then I started thinking, "How bad must those new jags uniforms and helmets look out on the field." So then it hit me, that I would redesign the Broncos to have a Jags inspired look so I could prove just how ridiculous it would look on other teams. So without further ado, here is my quickly done concept. Keep in mind this is meant just to show the ridiculousness of this style and not meant to be an outstandingly done concept.
  15. I've read many articles that claim that the logo/uniforms are "dated". But in your opinion, is the current Denver Broncos uniform/logo now historic/classic enough to where anything but minor tweaks would upset the Denver Broncos fanbase and/or uniform fanatics? I think so. Here are a few reasons why: Started the "modern" uniform trend in 1996Is now 17 years oldIs relatively modest compared to current "modern" uniformsBroncos won all Super Bowls in these uniformsLast uniform worn by some all-time Bronco greats (Terrell Davis, John Elway, Shannon Sharpe)Jason Elam set the longest FG record in these uniformsPeyton Manning tied the passing TD in a single game record in these uniformsSome image links: http://cdn.fansided.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/46/files/2013/06/davis_terrell.jpg http://www.dgpics.com/images/Sport/ELWAY%20TD-TROPHY.jpg http://a.espncdn.com/photo/2011/0802/nfl_g_sharpe11_576.jpg http://blogs.denverpost.com/broncos/files/2010/03/elam4.jpg
  16. Fixing the Broncos away uniforms

    One thing that bugged me last season is that the Broncos switched their primary color to orange, yet kept the same away uniforms. The aways need updating, so for this first image I simply swapped everything orange and blue on the uniforms. The result: I know the numbers are too short, the font would not let me make them taller without also widening them, so mabe some one could throw a tip my way about how to fix that. Now the next thing I noticed is that the blue helmet is very out of place and I'm not a fan of the horseshoe collar. So I eliminated the collar and gave the set a white helmet and tried both a white facemask and a blue one. Let me know what you all think, also I'm going to post later what the other uniform combinations would look like with a white helmet:

  18. Denver Broncos Redesign Concept

    Hey guys, very new to photoshop and a huge fan of a lot of the designs posted here! This is my second concept ever, and I was wondering if I could get some constructive criticism/feedback. I chose to re-design the Denver Broncos because first, I'm a die hard fan, and second, because I think their look is in need of an overhaul. What I did here was Eliminated navy from the color scheme entirely, made the secondary color white, and for a good blend of modernization and tradition, I made the trim the royal blue Denver used to wear in the seventies and eighties. I gave them white helmets, and changed the logo to an exclusive orange and white scheme, with the exception of the eye. A few things I'd like advice on: Sleeve stripes, yes or no? I feel like the pants need something but can't quite put my finger on it. Helmet stripe? Is the logo too minimalistic? And finally, sock stripes, yay or nay? Here it is, hope you guys enjoy it:
