  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. Hello all! I've been pretty excited for the upcoming Olympics this Summer. I've always been a huge fan of the games, and also have always loved the branding behind each of the games (unpopular opinion, I actually really liked the London 2012 branding.....NO DON'T LEAVE THE THREAD COME BACK!) Coupled with that excitement, I've felt the need lately to really kickstart my portfolio and get a bunch of ideas cranked out, produced, and finished. That all married together and inspired me to take on this personal project. It can be described pretty simply, a few days ago I thought about a lot of North American cities and wondered, "many of these will probably never host an Olympics in the near future...but what if they did?" So with curiosity running crazy, I sketched out a bunch of ideas for quite a few cities (and resketched...and went back to the drawing board...y'all know the drill), and dreamed up what each city would be represented by if they were to host the 2024 Summer Olympics. Now I know Los Angeles is currently the city being supported by the USOC and that none of these other options are realistic now (or would have been to begin with anyways), so I kindly ask if y'all would please focus on the designs and concepts themselves, rather than the legitimacy of the cities' chances. I'm well aware that Omaha or Nashville among many others aren't all that likely, but will happily take C&C for their designs anyways! Also, I won't be taking requests for potential cities at the moment, so I kindly ask you please refrain from requesting as well. For now, the concepts I've developed or are in the process of developing are all North American cities, but I'm planning on expanding to cities all over the world in due time. But also keep an eye out for three or four famous fictional cities as well down the road....*cough*I'm a huge Parks and Rec fan*cough*Pawnee*cough* So enough about all that, how about some designs? We'll start off with two for now. First off, Jacksonville. Jacksonville was honestly one of the hardest ones to develop. I went through a few different directions - the Andrew Jackson statue, the Main St. Bridge, and some forms of abstract palm trees/hidden athlete imagery (think Nagano 1998) - before finally latching onto the Nautical theme. I just loved the simplicity that the spelled-out "JAX" had to offer, and felt it clicked best overall. I'm happy with how it turned out, especially considering how tough it was to develop, and am eager to hear your thoughts. And second, Winnipeg! The bison/flame idea came right off the bat during brainstorming, and couldn't help but run with it. I chose Blue Bombers-esque colors because for some reason, I feel like they're great "prarie colors" and provided a great contrast to the colors of the Olympic logo. One thing I would like some help with is some potential suggestions for adding a little more color, if y'all feel it's needed; I explored the idea of adding some light blue and orange to the navy and gold, but nothing I came up with looked all that great. If y'all know of a way that can work, I'd love to hear it, among all other suggestions as well of course! Thanks for viewing, and stay tuned for more as the days come!
  4. Arena Football Uniform Concepts

    I've wanted to try some concepts on Paint for a while now, and I decided to give it a shot. I decided to do the Jacksonville Sharks of the AFL. I didn't get too creative with this one, basing it off of this version with some minor edits. Again, I didn't get too wild since it's my first concept. I may do an entire AFL makeover and go with some more crazy designs. C&C welcome. Let me know what you all think.
  5. There are very few uniforms in the NFL that I can actually say I disapprove of. However, there are a few teams that I think need to do something a little different. So, I will not post full uniforms because some of these teams I post only need to add these helmets to their current uniforms in my perfect world. So without further babbling, I present the first helmet: I find nothing wrong with the current Jerseys and pants of the Jags, but I hate their ugly mediocre helmet. When they wore the helmets last year that changed from black to teal in the light, I was happy as could be. I love those helmets, so I thought I would create a design for one that turns to a brighter teal when in the light but it features their new logo. Simple but a great design.
  6. 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.
  7. My attempt at fixing the Jaguars

    This is my first concept I have actually completed and been willing to share on here. It's for my hometown Jags, aka .. the worst uniform in sports (at least in the NFL). I don't hate the new uniform but the helmet is enough to drag down the rest of the set to forever alone status. I'll be keeping parts og the new set and tweaking others to try to make the best of a bad situation. Jersey: kept the claw marks on the shoulders, but tweaked themmoved the tv numbers to the sleeves to fill in the empty spacekept number and nob font because I think it works well on the uniforms (thanks to Conrad for making the font available)teal home, white away, black alt ... like it should bePants: Tried to use as much color as possible after their last two sets have failed in their minimalist mono color schemesWent back and forth a lot on the piping colorA lot of people wont like these I am sureHelmet: Started out matte black fan for the Jags .. but the gold just worked so much betteris the darker gold from the new logostripe comes to a point, forming another "cat scratch" claw mark that I couldn't get the right perspective on in the rearview so I left it off... and here we go ...
  8. Jags Concept/Tweak?

    Much like most of you, I am disturbed by the direction the Jaguars have gone with their helmets (and uniforms). I don't particularly hate the uniforms, but the helmet is god-awful. I think we all agree on that. I've decided to take to the [Microsoft] Paint canvas for the first time in a while to hopefully conquer the challenge of a Jags set that everyone will like. *fingers crossed* What I've done: -enlarged the helmet logo -eliminated the gold from the helmet (matte black!) -Teal is the primary home uniform -Single outline on numbers/names (for simplicity's sake) -Tried to distribute colors pretty equally among sets, with the option of having teal, white, or black-heavy sets -Simplified the alt logo, not a fan of "JAGS" in an official logo That's the jist of it, I've done a lot of simplification. Anyway... Here it is. Projected Primary home set: With black pants Projected Primary road set: White-Out: Black-Out: With white pants P.S. I'm actually very proud of this set, especially after such a long hiatus haha. I'm actually in love with the blackout (sue me!). Yes, that's a gradient. But It helped with the color balance, and it'll still be legible. Annnnd, this is a template I made from scratch, just for the hell of it. Thanks for viewing! C&C Please
  9. I'm painfully new here, so hear me out. While browsing, I've seen multiple concepts for the Jaguar's new unis and, frankly, I've yet to see one I was really into (Too many prints for my taste). However, I decided that I ought not really open my mouth until I put my own contribution on the table, so I bring you 2013 new Jaguars Nike uniforms using HVF's Nike 51 Elite template.Basing off of the new secondary logo's paying tribute to the city's military heritage, I tried to make the unis innovative, but serious Since they were my favorite looks the Jags brought out last season, the home and away will be all-black and all-white respectively. Here is the new home look. I gave them a pretty minimal motif based on thick, adjacent stripes (I know they kind of look like flags for flag football on the pants. Bear with me). While not directly related to the military, their usage seems to make me think of "army" and the like. While it was said they would be mostly black and gold with "little teal," I couldn't help but play with the numbers (I know, they're a bit small) a bit, which came out to be new Nike experimental color-shifting numbers that are consistent with the new team font. On the homers, they shift between teal and grey (a very Nike color) depending on lighting and perspective (think Oregon). The homer's socks complete the all-black look, though added are some gold stripes to cancel the "leotard" look.The cuffs and collar were kept black to keep with the overall seriousness and to avoid the "toilet seat" neck. Also, I kept the all-black helmet with the teal sparkle (no matte, chrome, or any of that ) from the past few years because I still like the idea, though I'd like to see Nike make it better and more visible. And, of course, the bad-ass new shield logo will obligatorily go on the sleeves. [ The aways feature a black-and-white them, if anything, to almost form a concept that the colors belong at home. Not much else to say here except that the numbers now shift between black and grey. (Please excuse the unprofessional splotches. Long story.) Here serves as a bit of a clarification on what the underarm/pants stripes ought to look like from a side view. Since it was confirmed that there will always be a teal uni to be worn as a tradition for one game a year, I mock up an edition with a teal jersey. It is very much like the white unifrom save its teal base (reminiscient of the recent teal unis). Of course, why should Nike stop at recolor? Why not every year rotate in a different or new version of the teal each year. They could introduce new throwbacks or Pro Combats each year.For simplisity's sake, I've started with a throwback. But I couldn't just go the easy way out. No, I threw all the way back. I present to you the Jaguars first throwback: the 1993 Pre-franchise unis that never saw a game (or, as I like to call them, the "Lawsuits"). These come complete with the full 90's look that was proposed then scrapped over controversy with Jaguar motor company over the logo back when Jax was granted a franchise, featuring the Jaguar jumping across the shoulders, silver helmet and pants, and only one colored sleeve cuff. I couldn't necessarily find an aesthetically pleasing way around it without going full-Texan, so, for now, you get toilet seat collar. My condolences go out to those affected. (Reference: http://www.sportslog...vhxgf4q5ts53hvy) If Jaguar still has a problem with it, then the helmet could easily be subbed with the one that GotPixels made that is the same but with the new Jag head logo. C/C is appreciated (though time may restrict me from making small adjustments), though I'd really like to hear if you could really see these on a field, realistically buy one, or if it would even fit better on a different team. Thank you for your kindness.
  10. 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.
  11. I thought I'd try my hand at a new uniform/script for the Jaguars. I don't think the new font goes particularly well with the new logo, so I wanted something a little sleeker but with an edge. Comment it up, people!
  12. **UPDATES POSTED FURTHER BELOW** Home - Black, w/ Digital Camo Sleeves. Shield logo on each sleeve. A Bold Gold Stripe begins at the front armpit and slightly curves throught the back side of the hip and ends in a sharp point just above the knee. Teal is absent in the Home design other than on the Jaguar head logo. Considered having the US Flag on one sleeve instead having both sleeves having the shield. Away - White, with Digital Camo Sleeves. I need to change the Nike swoosh to black. London Home Alternate - word is the Shield logo cannot be used while in london. This made sense to me, you wouldnt want to go into another country with a military theme... So for London, the theme is Peace. Teal is used as the Primary color, the bold Stripe remains consistant on all three jerseys but instead of camo sleeves, the alternate has black collar and cuffs, Uses the primary logo in place of the shield on the sleeves and on the upper chest the wordmark is used with US and UK flags beside it. Number font* Decided on a basic varsity block look... the sharp edge font used in the wordmark didnt fit well on the uniforms. like with the previous branding, there will likely be seperate style for the logos and marketing purposes and one used soley on the jerseys. Helmets... think oregon state, boise state matte black... no glare, shimmer or shine. helmet variations.
