  1. Some time ago I stumbled on the World Football League logos here on CCSL and I decided to give them a new spring by regenerating the league and by expanding it. The league will still be named World Football League and here you have my new logo, wordmark, monochromo logo and jersey patch. In addition to the original 12 teams from the USA I added 4 from Canada, 8 from Central and South America, 5 from Africa, 8 from Europe, 7 from Asia and 2 from Oceania. Without more reserves I'm going to present you the league conferences. Original Conference Birmingham Americans Charlotte Hornets Chicago Fire Detroit Wheels Florida Blazers (Miami) Honolulu Hawaiians Houston Texans Jacksonville Sharks Memphis Southmen Philadelphia Bell Portland Storm Southern California Sun (Los Angeles) + Vancouver Lumberjacks Toronto Reds Calgary Express Ottawa Canadians From this conference the top 4 teams will play for the Championship Finals I tried to stick with the real identities of the 70s with names and colors although some of them are now used by other major sports teams. Euroconference Stockholm Vikings Rome Gladiators Munich Mountaineers Rois de Paris London White Knights Barcelona Dracs Athens Argonauts Moskow Saints Just one of these teams will fly to the Championship Finals. Liberty Conference (Conferencia de los Libertadores) Rio Cariocas Aztecas de México (Aztecs) Buenos Aires Gauchos (Cowboys) Montevideo Libertadores (freedom bearers) Valparaiso Almirantes (Admirals) Panama Tugboats Caracas Pertoleros (Oilers) Bogotà Generales (Generals) The conference is not named after the continet but after a piece of history which is shared by all of these countries. The team names are mostrly in the native language for merchandise questions. Just one of these teams will fly to the Championship Finals. Afroarab Conference Cairo Pharaos Cape Town Penguins Lagos Eagles Dakar Lions Casablanca Touaregs Riyadh Stallions Riyadh was added to this group as in my opinion it makes more sense than to add it to far east teams as also Egypt and Morocco share an arab based culture with the Saudi city. Just one of these teams will fly to the Championship Finals. Indopacific Conference Sydney Wallabies Auckland Helmsmen Tokyo Kitsune Manila Tropical Shangai Red Stars Singapore jets Seoul Tigers Mumbai Elephants Just one of these teams will fly to the Championship Finals. I must add that I chose the conference color thinking of the 5 olympic rings. The red of Northen America was changed with the brown of a football ball to represent the original set of teams. To sum up, in the Championship Finals there will be 4 teams from the Original Conference ad one from every other conference for a total of 8 teams fighting for the Championship Trophy. Here you have some maps to make the team settings clearer. My work will be divided in two parts, the first where I'm going to redesign the late WFL teams and a second one where I'll be creating brand new identities for the new teams.
  2. A while ago I saw a project on Behance that really inspired me to maybe start a similar project. This is the link of the one I saw: https://www.behance.net/gallery/35060175/Reform-Redesigned-Logos Muskat is a wonderfully creative team of two designers from Germany and lets say I started following them ever since I first glanced at their projects. They focused on German brands and stores, making them look better, I on the other hand, will focus on the stores I see in my town of Zagreb, no matter what country a brand comes from. I just might put in a Croatian one, maybe... Sooooo, long story short, I started with Müller, a German trade company that basically sells everything from perfumes to cosmetics, from notebooks and pens to toys (lots and lots of toys). Lets say they are part one of my project. https://dribbble.com/shots/2857281-M-ller <--------dribbble link I hope you leave a like and a comment. Thank you! EDIT: The image is a GIF, so if you click it you'll see the logo on different color backgrounds.
  3. I recently caught interest in the CHL (Champions Hockey League), A tournament where the best clubs in Europe compete. I thought I would try to make a "European Super League". So I went and found 2 teams from the following leagues SHL, Liiga, Czech Extraliga, DEL, GET-ligaen and the Austrian Ice Hockey League. France and Denmark will get League National Teams where they select the best players of national origin from their country's leagues to represent at the ESL. So I present to you the 2016 European Super League. The Stars on the crest represent the founding countries (Austria, Czechia, Denmark, France, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland) Team Pools All The Team Jerseys will be released another day. C&C is always appreciated, thank you.
  4. World Cup of Hockey concepts

    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)
  5. For a while now, I've been working up the nerve to start a rather large project about soccer. Not just creating one league, but several. My idea is to create several soccer leagues in major European countries (Italy, Germany, England, France, and Spain, to be exact.) My mission was to create 18 to 20 team leagues in those 5 countries. The top 4 teams from each league would then play in the Champions League, as well as a few other teams I will make scattered around Europe. There will be the group, then the playoffs would commence. This is obviously inspired by Windell's Professional Dodgeball Coalition. This is a way for me to try to improve my graphic design skill and share it with you. Anyways, here's the first league, the Deutschenliga, from Germany. (Correct me if I'm wrong with any spelling, I don't speak german.) The Deutschenliga The league was found in 1966, as a merger of several regional leagues across Germany. Teams hopped on the bandwagon as a way to earn money, since many of the teams were small and unwealthy. At first, the league was a small 12 teams competing in the top league, but as years went on, the league added 6 more teams as well as higher competition. The line between the top class teams and the mid-table and bottom half teams grew. Only a handful of teams actually competed for the Cup, while the rest just played to survive relegation. It wasn't until the 90s that those winning teams started to shine in International play as well, and with that, the Deutschenliga has become one of the most watched leagues in Europe.
  6. Arsenal FC concept

    I'm not sure why it is so hard for Puma to make a decent soccer uniform so I threw this together for Arsenal. Let me know what you guys think and I'm open to suggestions so fire away. **Edit**
  7. Real Madrid concept

    - Request from rocketcris - Real Madrid with gold font and trim - Gold trim, pin stripes, and font - Not the correct font, but it was a little similar and I liked it so I used it anyway - Any thoughts/suggestions?
  8. 1975 SFL Teams Nordic Conference Baltic Helsinki - Uppsala - Stockholm - Gavle Svea Eskilstuna - Vasteras - Goteburg - Örebro Contintntal Conference South Malmo - Aalborg - Copenhagen - Helsingborg Norman Oslo - Paris - London - Dublin Swedish Federation of American Football (SFAF) Inaugural Season 1965 1963 In late 1963 Swedish emigrant Anders Bergström, seeing a path to AFA ownership as iffy at best, took a trip back to his hometown of Uppsala, Sweden, where he met with several Swedish First Division Soccer Club owners and hatched a plan to bring America's Football to Sweden. With a positive first meeting, A.B. returned to Northern California and sold the majority stake in his logging empire, in order to free himself of the major responsibilities of day to day operations, while maintaining a 40% share that would give his new league a rather large nest-egg, and a steady flow of income that would help the league get past the first 5 years without worrying about turning a profit. Something A.B. knew how to do, and with cooperation from the AFA offices, he would do that inside of 3 years, or so he hoped. 1964 On his second trip to Sweden, A.B., along with league lawyers met with industry leaders, as well as 10 prospective team owners in Stockholm's Olympic District. the first order of business was to create a Board of Directors who would steer the league through hits infancy. And help select the first 6 teams. The second order was naming the league, Svenska Förbundet Amerikansk Football was unanimously agreed upon, or the Swedish Federation of American Football in English. A.B. and the board made the decision to adopt AFA rules, knowing that if the league were to thrive it would need to find a way to work as a place for American football players who had talent, but weren't ready for the league to grow and develop their games. This would bring the level of Scandinavian players skills up more rapidly than an organic course of seeding and watering. The SFAF would actively recruit players cut by AFA teams and each team would be allowed 8 American players on the team. This would include Americans currently living and working in Sweden. A Supplemental Draft would be held the week after AFA rosters were finalized. To start the first Season Each team would be allowed to select 10 American players in an Expansion Draft. These 10 players would be grandfathered into the rules, and as long as they remained on the team that drafted them, the 8 player limit would be waived. As these players were cut, retired, or moved into coaching, the teams numbers would roll back to 8 American maximum. The next order of business was selecting the first six cities to be awarded teams, and suprisingly 14 cities put in bids. The criteria was simple: Size of city Historical support of local teams Appropriate facilities and existing stadium able to hold 5,000 supporters Rail service Financial Stability All but one team was supported by an existing sports club with a history in the Swedish First Division of European Football Lund beat out Malmö strictly due to the support of SAAB AB, and a guarantee of travel expenses paid for the other five teams visiting Lund. Of the 14 proposals, 2 were selected for the leagues first expansion in 1967 (those names will be announced at the 1966 Supplemental Draft. 1965 The first season began with the Uppsala Hammers and Stockholm Vikings playing in Uppsala, in front of 4,876 mostly University students and American Expats. Stockholm won the game 22-20 on a 31 yard field goal by 39 year old former Uppsala Kunig (Swedish Premier League) striker #6 Bengt Lunden. Lunden played 18 years for the Kunig, helping them win 4 Premier League titles, and becoming the all-time scoring leader in the teams history. Ironically, Lunden won the leagues first game, on the same field he dominated for nearly two decades. The season was dominated by these same two teams, and the difference was Uppsala player/coach #10 QB Billy Johnson, a doctoral student at Uppsala's Linius University. Johnson was born in Aledo, Texas in 1935, and after a standout schoolboy career in Aledo, went on to play for the Ft Worth University Bearcats, being named 2nd team All- American as a junior, and pre-season All-American as a Senior. During the 4th game of his senior year, Johnson would suffer a thought to be career ending nee injury that required surgery, and at 5'9" 178 pounds, his pro career would be put on hold for 8 years as he went into coaching, and after 6 successful seasons leading Aledo HS to the state playoffs, he was awarded a scholarship to attend Linius University and earn a Doctorate in Education. Johnson heard about the league during a class and at the prodding of his classmates went to the open tryout. After about 5 minutes he was nor only offered the QB's job, but an additional stipend to be a player coach. It was his wide open passing game that would seal the Championship 4 months later in Stockholm, and redemption for the now 30 year old Rookie QB. Soon after the first season concluded Anders Bergström and several board members flew to San Francisco to meet with the AFA... History of a Fictional Football League
  9. Ligue 1 by Le Coq Sportif®

    This is my take on the League 1. Here's the link.
  10. Alright, this is my first topic in a long time and I wanted to do something I've been putting off for a while until I could find I decent jersey template. I decided to create a European Basketball League with some inspiration for the uniforms coming from soccer kits. An example of this is the team crest above the chest. Below is a list of cities and color schemes I'm considering for the league, if you have any suggestions for the locations and colors please leave them. As always CC is appreciated on the concepts. Moscow - Maroon & Metallic Gold Barcelona - Gold & Red London - Red & Silver Dublin - Green & Grey Paris - Metallic Gold & Light Blue Istanbul - Red & Blue St. Petersburg - White, Blue, & Red Berlin - Red, Black, & Yellow Munich - Black & Yellow Rome - Red, Gold, & Silver Madrid - Red, Blue, & Gold Milan - ? Belgrade - Blue & ? Zagreb - ? Amsterdam - Blue & Orange Lisbon - Green & Red Athens - Blue & White First up, Moscow The uniform has Moscow written in Russian on both jerseys. On the back just above the player name is the league logo with the Russian flag on it (each team will have the league logo on the back with the nation in which the city is located). The Moscow coat of arms was the inspiration for the crest. The crest features St. George fighting a dragon with St. Basils' Cathedral in the background.
  11. Hey guys, some of you may remember my British Elite Ice Hockey League cleanup thread and I mentioned I wanted to tackle most of Europe, well, here it is. I will keep the British league thread separate and will use this one for the rest of Europe. Now I don't have a final set goal as of yet, however, I will approach the top teams of each league and give them a clean up or even a redesign. The teams are mostly those involved with the Champions Hockey League that is about to finish its first season. Basically its a soccer style tournament where the top teams or certain leagues get to play in that league so I'm taking the teams involved in the CHL as well as other teams floating at the top that may alternate in their respective national league and the CHL. The first league I started working on is the National League A in Switzerland. The format of my posts will be a little different. I will show a collage with pictures of what the team looks like or has looked like for some reference, with the refreshed/new logo in the centre followed by the jerseys. I have made some rules for myself: No sponsors will be present on my designs, however realistically speaking, the sponsors will only be present on the pants as well as one sponsor on the helmet and 2 on the socks. Home and Away Helmets and Pants will be the same to reduce on money spent on equipment. Teams are allowed to have another helmet and/or pants for their Alternate and/or Throwback as the team is financially responsible. Each team is allowed one Alternate and one Throwback, in other words a team can have 2-4 jerseys. Fauxbacks are considered Alternates. Home must be a solid colour - preferably dark - away jerseys may be white, cream, tan, yellow or gray. The flag of the country the player represents in International Hockey is worn over the heart of each jersey, instead of the back - yes these are real players - and the Captaincy patch will be worn on the right side instead of traditional left. Jerseys are made by CCM because Canada.... yep, no other real reason for that haha. The national league logo if present in the collar of each jersey similar to NHL.

  12. Serie A by Nike®

    Welcome to third and (probably) last part of my "What if..." Nike would sign a collective contract with Serie A, one of the major football leagues of Europe. Here's the link. Thanks & enjoy!
  13. Alrighty, so I was thinking of cleaning up the Elite Ice Hockey League in Great Britain in hopes of creating a European Hockey League that would rank 3rd in Pro Hockey leagues. It would feature the Elite Ice Hockey League, Leagues in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France, Lower Countries and Scandinavia as the KHL basically owns the rest. Country restricted, football style leagues aren't working; KHL got that right. I also wanted to make it somewhat realistic with most of them being owned by NHL teams or at least have agreements to develop players and all that business junk - so if some look too cookie cutter, NHL templates, well it's gonna happen. I was also possibly thinking of an AHL style farm team, development league. I'm just trying to guess what it would look like if hockey was as successful in Western Europe as it is here in North America. But, I won't get ahead of myself; I will start with just the EIHL. Most Fonts were from Conrad at http://fontsbyconrad.wordpress.com/ Templates are custom and some from http://nhluniformmatchupdatabase.weebly.com Anyway, I will start with one concept every so often and if a few people think an edit is needed, I will work on that until I am happy with it. I have a few finished already but I don't want to rush it so here goes. I'll start off with Hull Stingrays I wanted a double blue look and I originally was testing out drawing Hockey logos as I completely suck at it. I basically copied the Devil Rays logo but then thought it wasn't right, I need to be more Creative. So I made a basic Stingray design but wanted to keep the Manta Ray to keep it unique and aggressive. I still kept the Devil Rays style logo as a secondary logo because I needed a shoulder patch and was out of idea at the time.
  14. Spengler Cup rebrand

    Hey everybody. It's holiday time again, and for most Canadian hockey fans, that means it's time for some World Junior puck. However, for some others, this time of year means it's time for the Spengler Cup, where six teams from around the world come to Davos, Switzerland's Vaillant Arena to play for one of the oldest trophies in hockey. This year, the hosts HC Davos and Swiss compatriots Geneve-Servette host Russians CSKA Moscow, Vitkovice from the Czech league, the AHL's Rochester Americans, and - of course - Team Canada, made up of Euro-league standouts. Each year, the jerseys the teams wear follow the same template. And it's ugly. Here's an example from last year. http://www.spenglercup.ch/tl_files/images/teams/canada/team_picture.jpg So naturally, I figured it's time to take matters into my own hands. Each team's redesigned uniforms are on my own template, and have the same name and number font (just to keep up the standardization they like so much) The ads are still there, but I tried to make them a little easier on the eyes. Teams are arranged in alphabetical order, so it goes Canada, CSKA, Davos, Geneve, Rochester, and Vitkovice.
  15. PANATHINAIKOS SOCCER CONCEPT

    LINK TO THE CONCEPT IN MY BLOG HERE!
  16. Jason La Canfora, our favorite Draft Twitter Guy Who Ruins Everything, had a pretty good article today regarding the now near-constant rumors circulating that the NFL is blood-drunk on moving a franchise to the UK in the next handful of years, and there's two franchises in Florida that may be the "winner." Meanwhile, also via CBS, this time by the Almost a Great Porno Name NFL reporter Pete Prisco, it's the Bucs who may be the inevitable:
