Hello all. This is my first attempt at a concept in quite a while and was whipped up in about 2-3 days' free time (which isn't much). However, this has been an idea kicking around in my head for a while that I feel should be an ideal, stands-out-but-still-shows-restraint take on the Houston Astros' rainbow tequila sunrise jerseys of the 1970s and 1980s. While I feel that the alternate here is much nowhere near as polished and makes perhaps the best blend of the Astros' old "cutout" star and the rainbow tequila sunrise pattern, I tried to aim for something that Houston could conceivably use, using a full star (but not beveled--even the cap logo has had that removed). Keep in mind that the number font is not the same, and I plan to do a little more refining (smoother, less pixelated star lines and so forth), but I hope you get the gist. White Option: Navy Option: I've also considered cutting less of the pattern on the front, as seen here, as I'm not a fan of the stripe just beginning at the seam, but I feel that less is more with the stripe ending at the star, though my initial thought is that that cutout section referenced the original planned A logo planned with the original rainbow tequilla sunrise uniforms. I also didn't like the way they showed up on the blue uniforms, but I may take a second look at that option as well. Anyways, I feel that there's something missing, like text or patches (which I plan to at least add), but what do you guys think? C+C is appreciated.
Alternative History MLB Double Knit Era Series by Carolingian Steamroller (FINALIZED DESIGNS ALL 31)
Carolingian Steamroller posted a topic in ConceptsBack with a brand new series! One of my absolute favorite periods in baseball uniform history was the period immediately at the beginning of the double-knit era. Starting with the Pirates in 1970, Major League teams switched from flannels to brand new polyester double-ply technology. Team didn't quite know exactly what to do with the new fabric. The result was a series of gorgeous, modern, colorful but clean uniform styles like the '70s Red Sox, orange-centric shooting star Astros, Swingin' A's, and feathered Braves. Things got a little crazy in the late '70s and early '80s and conservative button downs reasserted their presence. But what if it hadn't gone that way? What if the pullover and sansabelt look had stuck? The uniforms would have been modernized (I doubt we'd see the '83 Sox in the current era) but maybe instead of harking back to the flannel era, maybe baseball goes back to the early double-knits. So this series is based on that alternative history. These are contemporary uniforms but designed with the idea that the pullover era never ended but just evolved along the same lines that uniforms took to this day. We start with the champs. I've used the same revised logos that I used for my original MLB series but adapted them into the early 70's pullover look (minus the blue sleeve caps). I've added white stripes to the stirrups to better match the cap. Powder blue and white dominate the roads and I'm throwing in a blue alt for fun. Enjoy!
TheLogoManiac13 posted a topic in ConceptsI was just messing around with Photoshop and I created a fauxback uniform for Michigan State. I used only cream and green for the uniform. I don't really have a list of teams in mind so I am down to take requests.
Worked on this as entry in Uni Watch fauxback jersey contest. Modified my slight modification (Paint/MS Paint "friendly") of Sparky Chewbarky's sweater template to smaller hockey sweater dimensions more in keeping with the era depicted. Didn't submit this one after reading the area posted above "The Rules" regarding something to the effect that it needed to be original and not a knock-off (like the Rays were of the late 1970's Padres). Made up a fake history where the Oakland Clippers didn't move to Spokane but instead moved to San Jose, and drew up a chain stitched Sharks logo for the sweater. I modified the striping by making it a bit simpler and thicker so it wouldn't look like a direct knock-off of the Oakland/Spokane Clippers. So although I don't like it as much as the one above, the one below is what I entered: That about as good as I could do with the limited spare time I had and the even more limited artistic and computer graphic ability. If someone want to modify it, use some aspects of it to make something better, throw in their own take on the idea, etc., feel free.
Had this one come to me quickly and I thought I'd share it... The only NAIA football school in my state is Arizona Christian University (the Firestorm), which started a football program recently sensing that Arizona players don't have many options to play football in the state after high school. ACU was started in 1960 but didn't take its current name until 2011 (it used to be known as Southwestern College). I had a quick idea and logo. What if Arizona Christian had always been Arizona Christian? Thus came the concept for this fauxback logo... ...And this set of mockup home and road football uniforms that could be worn as fauxbacks. It's basically a USC ripoff of the 70s/80s with a few odd details, but that kind of adds to the realism of what a small school would have actually done. It's also worlds better than this. I know it's simple, but let me know what you think. I like how the A and C have a real 70s/80s feel to them without being too dated.
