  1. Floridian Premier League (Derby Posters)

    I’ve been away from the boards for a while, but I’ve still been looking at other soccer concepts for ideas. In about late-July I decided to revive it, but instead of building off of what I already had, I decided to go back to square one. I made the league brand new and doubled the teams to a whopping 48. So this is the biggest project design related I have ever done, and like I said before, I’ve been working on it (drawing up ideas, writing backstories, designing kits and crests) since about late-July. I hope you all enjoy this mammoth of a project and please don’t shy from C&C. I can take it. League Backstory: The Floridian Premier League was founded in 1940 to give an southern counterpart to the thriving American soccer leagues in states like California, Texas, and New York. It’s immediate success brought it to the same level as these other leagues and it has been a farm for successful play domestically with other state league sides. It is composed of 48 teams, the most sides of any league in America. 8 of those teams get relegated, and 7 of them go to the American Champions League. Its most successful club domestically is International Gardens, and its most successful club nationally is Lauderdale Athletic. Team List: Athletic Club Boca Biscayne Athletic Soccer Club Brevard Brevard Rockets Soccer Club Buena Vista United Cascades Soccer Club Clearwater Soccer Club Daytona Racing Club Soccer Club Deerfield Deportivo Miami Fort Brooke Soccer Club Soccer Club Fort Myers Freedom Tower Soccer Club Gateway Soccer Club Gold Coast Diamonds Gulf Shore Athletic Harbor City Soccer Club Hillsborough City Soccer Club Homestead City Soccer Club International Gardens Soccer Club Islanders Soccer Club Keys United Soccer Club Lakeland Swans Soccer Club Lauderdale Athletic Club Lighthouse United Soccer Club Locomotive Gainesville Menéndez Club de Futbol Miramar Club Deportivo Nautica Soccer Club Ocala Riders Soccer Club Orange County Soccer Club Palm Beach Maritime Panama City Soccer Club Paradise Soccer Club Pembroke Rovers Soccer Club Progress United Real Palmas Club de Futbol Reeves Soccer Club River City Soccer Club San Agustín 1565 Sporting Pensacola Springs United Soccer Club St. Johns Brigade St. Lucie Union Sunshine City Soccer Club Tampa Bay United Volucres Soccer Club Ybor City Soccer Club I’m gonna do a similar thing to TheGiantsFan where he has a famous person from that city represent the name on the shirt, and you have to guess it. In this concept I’ll post a league table, and at the end I’ll group the crests and home and away kits together to get a big idea of what the league looks like altogether. I’ll be posting the teams alphabetically and about one per day, maybe more. Anyways here's the first club...
  2. The sunny state of Florida is home to numerous athletic clubs. They have nine professional clubs in the Big Four leagues of North America. I noticed that every team has a crappy uniform component. Breaking it down further; In the NFL, we have three teams from different parts of the state. The Miami Dolphins have questionable colour choices (navy?) and a bland uniform for a team called the Dolphins. The Buccaneers have awful numbers, weird colour choices, and an odd combo of stripes and piping. The Jaguars have a strong colour combo but terrible uniforms. In the NBA, we have the Heat and the Magic. The Heat aren't that bad but a couple tweaks could be greatly beneficial. The Magic have gone in the opposite direction of where they should be headed. The NHL provides some of the best uniforms out of the bunch. The Florida redesign was so much better than their last set, but a few tweaks could knock it out of the park. The Lightning have another boring set, despite another inspiring name. The MLB fields two of the last teams. The Marlins have such a great colour combo (minus black) and have so much potential, but it has been wasted. The Rays are close to a homer of a set, but tweaks should fix the problems. My last project ended eight months ago. I haven't made a concept of any kind in over half a year, so bear with me. Let's begin with the Dolphins. I love the throwbacks that the Dolphins have. I think it's a consensus that they should go back to those full time. Here's the full set. The home set features a teal top and white pants with their old logo, because it's great. The road set is a whiteout because I thought it looked good and the colours really stand out. Maybe an unpopular opinion, but I loved the Colour Rush jerseys from this year. I used white pants and socks to balance the colours a little better. I have returned at last. Leave C and C!
  3. Florida Flamingos Jersey

    If you're unaware, Icethetics has been rebranding/introducing teams over at the IceHL, and I was planning to submit some jerseys for the Florida Flamingos. I missed the deadline, however, and I figured I'd post 'em here. I tried to be safe with the jerseys, but also stay modern and sleek.
  4. Major League Quidditch - Orlando concpet

    Hello, I play real-world Quidditch, a version of the magical sport from the Harry Potter universe. Real-life Quidditch is a full-contact, co-ed sport that involves four balls and a mix of basketball, rugby, handball, dodgeball, et cetera, all with a broom between your legs. If you haven't seen it played, this is what it looks like at the collegiate level. Now that you've finished laughing... Two years ago Major League Quidditch was founded as a "professional" league in the US. Professional in quotations as the players aren't paid, it mostly functions as an off-season league for the top collegiate and club players. There are currently 16 teams, and there is talk of further expansion, especially in Florida (The nearest teams are in DC and Louisiana). I've talked with MLQ people and I'm determined to be a part of this team, at least on the organizational level. This is my concept for a possible Orlando team, design-wise. I recently learned that "Juice" was one of the possible names for the Orlando Magic, and I really liked the citrus imagery for a Central Florida team. It's a bit out of the ordinary but given the other unique team names (Cleveland Riff, New Orleans Curse) I think it will fit in with the league. I also included "Squeeze" as a possible team name. If you'd like to see some current MLQ jerseys and designs, click here and here. Quidditch uniform designs are somewhere between soccer and baseball. My design concept is attached, it's mostly a rough sketch of a team identity. I'm not an expert in Illustrator so I'd prefer a professional to do the final design, but I wanted to see what y'all think of my idea. Thanks!
  5. FLORIDA PANTHERS WINTER CLASSIC CONCEPT *UPDATED*

    So I originally was going to post a topic on here again, when I finished my idea for a United American Continental Hockey League (That is not the name of the league but I may change it also you'll see what I mean when I post the list of teams as well as the first team). Until then an idea came to me about a Winter Classic in good'ol Florida. I do have a Tampa Bay Lighting idea in mind but I'm not sure if I want to post it. The design is a ode to the military with a unique style added in that fits in with the current uniforms of the Cats. THE JERSEY: I based the jersey off of the Stadium Series jersey for the Detroit Redwings as well as the striping inspired by the Canadiens and current Panthers uniform. The patch towards the cuff of the sleeves is a Captain's patch from the United States Military (I gave it to Ekblad because I feel by the time they get a Winter Classic Willie Mitchell will have retired and Ekblad will have matured enough to deserve the 'C'... well in this case Captain's bars) Here is a closer look at the Captain's patch... The Navy Blue and and Gold are in there because well it the Panthers' colors so it makes sense. I chose a silver/grey/whatever (technically it Grey-25%) instead of Red because of one simple reason. In the US Military a Captain's bars are silver so it fits in with the Military motif. C&C Appreciated* Some quick Criticisms that I know will be mentioned: -No Winter Classic Patch (I am not the best artist soooo...yeah there's that.) -Main logo too fuzzy (I attempted to fix it up... I stress attempted. Also, I'm using MS paint.) -Using MS Paint
  6. Florida Premier League

    FLORIDA PREMIER LEAGUE Welcome to my first fictional league, Florida Premier League. The idea behind this was to create a European-style soccer (or football) league with 20 teams from the biggest cities around Florida. Since Florida is my home state, I thought I should incorporate it into one of my next concepts. FPL HISTORY The Florida Premier League was founded in 1919 as the Florida Football Federation. The League started out with only 6 clubs, 3 of which still compete in the league in 2016. The League was one of the original members of the AFA (American Football Association), which also started out with leagues from California, Texas, New York, and Illinois. The FFF immediately rose to the top as the best soccer league in America. The 6 inaugural clubs were the 6 greatest clubs in the nation, but as time went on the league couldn't survive with just 6 clubs, so 6 more clubs were formed. At this point the FFF was starting to gain more supporters, and numerous people across Florida were die-hard fans of their respective teams. In 1943, during the peak of World War II, the league decided to go on hiatus, due to Florida's geographical vulnerability. The league resumed play in 1946, one year after WWII's end, and they were renamed as the Florida Premier League. The FPL added 8 new sides, and the AFA decided to add a lower-tier league in Florida as well, known as the Florida Championship. By the 70's the FPL had become a cultural phenomenon in Florida, and the clubs started to be able to sign big name players such as Johan Cruyff and Gerd Müller. In 1977, the American Champions League was formed, and the top four finishers from the FPL were able to compete in this event. However, this meant the clubs had to compete in more games, and the players started to feel they were underpaid. Before the 1979/1980 season the players union went on strike. This caused the league to go into a lockout, that became one of the longest lockouts in American sports history. The lockout lasted for 4 seasons, and by the 1983/1984 season, the union was finally able to reach an agreement with the AFA about wages and salaries. The league continued play in 1984, and had a new feeling to it. The games seemed more entertaining, the players, more motivated, and the goals, more electric. This excitement carries on today as the FPL has become the greatest soccer league in the States. OTHER INFO ABOUT THIS CONCEPT At the end of the concept you will be able to vote on your favorite design (via the boards) and which ever club receives the most votes will be the champion of the 2015/2016 FPL season. The final standings will be released at the end of the voting. LEAGUE LOGO
  7. Florida Panthers Redesign

    With the Panthers' logo leak today, I made a mockup for it and what I expect the jerseys to look like. I think this redesign can and will go really well, but there's always that chance that Reebok screws everything up. The logo is good, but the jerseys are yet to come. Here are my concepts!
  8. Hello! This logo is a response to the fact that the South Florida Metro Area is once again, getting a Major League Soccer (MLS) team in the foreseeable future. As always, feel free to critique and I will answer questions when I have the time available. Also, here's a link to the project: Miami SC/96 - MLS Design
  9. Florida Panthers Redesign

    Hi all, this is my first post here and I was hoping to get some feedback on my complete redesign of the Florida Panthers. I was first inspired by the pad set that Luongo has been wearing this year, so I tried the yellow and white design keeping the dark blue to a minimum, however this is very hard to pull off. I'm pretty happy with where the Logo is at right now maybe just a few tweaks here and there. I created a design adding in the red on the panthers, ear, nose and tongue and made a home set as well. I started with a sketch of what I wanted the panther to look like using my drawing tablet then cleaned that up with the pen tool in Photoshop and spent a few hours tinkering with other ideas from their on, the secondary logo on the shoulder patches right now is just the claws extracted from their old logos. Hoping for some good feedback. Best
  10. Basketball team logo reimagined

    I spent an little time this week working on a concept design for an update to a minor league basketball team logo and secondary mark. Let me know what you think. I'm sort of new to sports logo design, so any feedback is definitely welcome.
  11. Hey guys, I've been working on a Florida Gators concept recently but I'm having trouble deciding on the helmet. I'm going to keep it mostly the same, but I want to replace the outdated cursive script with the current wordmark on the helmet. I just can't figure out what color it should be, so I'll leave it up to you guys. I like option 1 better. Full uniforms will be up soon. EDIT: Option one wins. EDIT TWO: Option One wins so helmets removed
  12. With the uniform craze over the last couple of years only continuing to grow more and more ridiculous, the SEC has prided itself (for the most part) in maintaining a rather traditional feel with their respected universities. I'd like to go even a step further and get these teams back to the root of their design. A lot of the changes were made with tradition in mind, adding elements that used to be commonplace for these institutions, while still at times allowing a pinch of the modern flare to remain. I'll go through each university in the SEC, some given a lot of change, others not so much, to get back to the basics and prove that less is more.
  13. Florida Gators concept

    So I'm not great at graphic design (By the way if anyone is and would like to digitalize this for me that would be fantastic) so I just drew this out by hand. Gators, concept. Also first blog post, what do you guys think?
  14. New FSU Spear and Pattern

    I traced up the new FSU spear and pattern for anybody who's looking to make some concepts with them. I can send the vector file to anybody who would like it as well, just shoot me a PM with your email address.
  15. saws this on Twitter just now by @PhilHecken "@PhilHecken: RT @Maida904 Looks like FSU's new (tweaked) logo may have leaked on a department store t-shirt." follow Phil for great new on everything sports logos and uniforms. If this is their new logo, thank God. I love it, its a nice modern update, and keeps the logo with it's history. I know many of you may think FSU should just keep their logo, and that's your opinion. Not a bad one, i just think it looks good with the update. And also, this may not be the updated logo,as it is from a department store, so it could just be the brand's recreation of the logo to get away with not using FSU's actual logo. But if it is, someone hire whoever made it!
  16. Disney NCAA Vinylmation

    So way back when I started compiling vintage college mascot logos I said I had a personal project for which I was using them. Today I unveil part of that project. Vinylmation If you've ever been to a Disney park then it is likely you've seen some vinylmations. They are a 3 or 9 inch vinyl figures, shaped like Mickey Mouse, that have a huge array of themes. From classic Disney characters to Star Wars to Indiana Jones and many others in between. There are even sports teams; NFL, NBA, MLB, and NCAA. However the NCAA versions are terribly generic and lack the personality for which many vinlylmations are popular. They also created a "Mascots" series of the main 4 Disney characters in vintage college gear. This is where I was inspired for these concepts. Vinlymations also have a large "custom" following. Artists take either blank or unpopular vinyls and re-work them into amazing pieces of art. I chose to get into this by painting NCAA Mascots onto the vinylmation canvas and I just finished my first series and put them up for sale. Below are images of them but first I'll post some pics of other vinyls as well as the "official NCAA series."
  17. What do y'all think? Kind of went for a blend of the old uniforms they had up until '09 with a little bit of modernization. I used more black and less teal because that's what Khan said we would go for. Also tried to use the new Nike type collar. Any thoughts/ideas/suggestions, please just let me know.
