  1. So, now that I got the Miami Marlins off my chest, I figured I should tweak the other teams that have been bothering me too. Nothing bothered me as much as the Marlins, but it doesn't take much to aggravate me...sadly. The next team I wanted to put a paint brush to was San Diego. Like most, I feel they should be going back to the brown and yellow colors. I on the other hand want to put more emphasis on the brown and keep the yellow to a minimum. I have no issue with their current word scripts and uniform style, I just feel the brown and yellow would look better. So with that in mind, here is my version of the Padres. The away has a grey that has very slight orange tint to it, just to give it some warmth with the brown and yellow. Then there is the Home alternate. The big trend of having the logo over the heart/left side is not missed on the Padres. I'm currently working on a brown top alternate for the road as well as a new main logo that will combine a few era's logos with the swinging friar as the center piece. How does that look? C+C appreciated.
  2. MLB Tweaks (Final Logos)

    Hey everyone, For a while I've enjoyed to think about what kind of changes I would make to uniforms across MLB, just being into design as I am. I've always wanted to make a thread of my own here after seeing so many great ones, but never thought I had the computer skills, nor did I really think hand-drawns would show up great online. After my Twins concept though, I got to thinking and decided to at least try to flesh it out into an entire MLB-wide series. Things are probably gonna slow down quite a bit from me once school starts back up, but at least this is worth starting. This series is just gonna be my fixes to things across each of the uniforms, I'm gonna save major redesigns for maybe a future series... So here it goes starting off, naturally, with the Arizona Diamondbacks: Logos -Brick red, Black, and Teal are now the main colors. It's a good time for Arizona to move on to a more modern scheme. -The teal has been adjusted a bit, it's a little greener to look more like a color inspired by Native Navajo jewelry rather than Tron electric blue. -Caps are both the A logo, just because I'm personally not a fan of the D snake. -Both caps have the diamond snakeskin pattern on the brim to still achieve the two-tone look. -Sand-ish colors are still present in the identity, as the home is now cream, and the away is full-on the sand color. Uniforms -I like the way the 'D-backs' wordmark looks, besides the fact that it says 'D-backs'. I had to compromise and put the 'A' on the home. -The diamond pattern is on the back of all jerseys, which makes sense for a team named the Diamondbacks. -No pattern on the pants. It isn't really necessary. -I decided to keep the cut piping, but cut it at an angle on the jerseys, like the pants. The colors are also now teal/red/teal on the jerseys because I feel that looks more Arizona and less Tron. -As said before, the away is now sand. I didn't hate the concept of dark gray, just didn't think it fit the team, especially with teal. -Snake patch is on all jerseys. -Both alternates can be home and road. -Some may not like this, but all accessory elements are interchangeable. Things like hats, belts, and socks can be worn in different combinations with different jerseys. So, of course, let me know what you all think! All comments/criticisms welcome!
  3. Mets logo font?

    Hello, I am new here. I am a graphic designer looking for something close to the Mets script font for a wedding invitation. The wedding will be at a local ballpark, and I want to make it as authentic looking for the couple as I can. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
  4. About a month ago or so, I'd posted a Cubs/White Sox rivalry set that was pretty well received, and I'd said I had a few other city and state rivalries in mind. I was initially considering going the flag route again, though decided against it, as things would've looked FAR more awkward than when I went that route with the Chicago clubs: the Mets already wear the colors of the NYC flag, and if I'd based anything on the Queens flag, then you're talking about replacing orange with yellow and red. And on the Yanks' side...the Bronx flag is blue and orange. Yeah...eh...um, no. Just no. So I took a couple approaches here...for the Mets, both uniforms are hybrid fauxbacks that prominently take inspiration from 1916, among other years. The home whites have a checkered pattern, a la the 1916 Dodgers, with the large N Y on the chest emblematic of the 1900s Giants, along with a contrasting placket with METS written on it diagonally, which was briefly worn by the Dodgers a few years before the checkered unis. Though I figure blue numbers would've shown up fine, I felt orange numbers would show up better. For the grays, I used the other bizarre NYC uniform choice of '16, the Giants' violet plaid, right down to a temporary color change to violet/black. Don't worry, it'd only be for two days The chief difference from '16 is a semi-intentional anachronism, the mid-80s New York script (I thought about using the 93-94 script, but I figure Mets fans would rather not ever see that one again) that serves as the Dodger nod. I might post an orange/blue version of the road later, but then I've kept the plaid violet before (on a version I'd posted years ago, modernized for the San Francisco era) and I very well might again. For the Yanks, like I said that one time I posted an alt-historical road alt for em, I think they could do vests justice, so both uniforms are sleeveless. The home uniform largely maintains the familiar look, but with a touch of championship gold. The cap NY is gold, the pinstripes are gold, and the jersey NY and numbers have a gold outline. The road grays are an obvious departure from the normal fare: a lot of folks hate pinstriped grays, but I figured it made at least a bit of sense...and a confession, originally I had a block YANKEES across the chest, as a nod to Murder's Row (the Yanks' grays read YANKEES for a few years in the late 20s before reverting to NEW YORK). The hat & bat script I went with...I know I ripped off the Braves in that regard, but damn if it don't look good. I know one thing, every now and then I give a brief thought to resurrecting something I did when I first stumbled upon the logo community: Turn Ahead the Clock...and then I realize I'll likely never need to truly revisit that era. Kinda like how even though almost nobody runs the pure Run & Shoot anymore, its concepts are everywhere. Just thinking in print, a little bit.
  5. I figured I'd take a little break from the Rivalry spinoffs...and thus, I return to one of those things everybody's done, but nobody else has a true name for. Yes indeed...the Lonely Alts are back! Leading off, one of the minor league alts, the Rochester Red Wings Batting second, our other bush leaguers, the Burlington Bees Wanna rumble with the bee, huh? Third in the order, the D-backs I was seriously considering a more contemporary take on the D-backs' TATC jersey, which featured a wraparound snake. Decided against it for now, in favor of this diamond-trimmed gem. Last but definitely not least...BigRed, I hope you don't mind, but I borrowed Ilny for a bit and gave her a few tweaks.
  6. Good evening everyone! Just a quick Mets concept for 2015. I like this black uniform as a Friday or Saturday alternate. Pretty much the same uniform they had worn in the early 2000's up until a few years ago. Enjoy!
  7. New York Mets Concept

    I found a baseball template on these boards, so I threw together a Mets concept. It's a very easy template to use, I might add. The Mets have a nice look, but with a couple tweeks it could become one of the league's best. The home is pretty good, but cream doesn't make sense. The Mets have used 4 road wordmarks over their 52 year history. One is a match for a wordmark they used for a couple years (with the underline, ICYDK), one that is basically a recoloring of the Yankees road wordmark, the current one that matches the Red Sox wordmark font, and one that matches the current home wordmark, which is what I used. I also made the one and only cap orange-billed, but with the regular cap logo, and all unnecessary gray is removed. This is also my first baseball concept in Inkscape, so I'm not sure how well it came out, but I decided I would go ahead and come out with it. Enjoy!
  8. Mets road tweak

    Based on Gothamite's post here... http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/91738-teams-that-just-need-to-change-their-wordmark-or-number-font/page__st__20#entry1973494 Mets road jersey with old New York Giants wordmark
  9. I've always been intruiged with how teams display retired numbers in different fashion. The league-wide retirement of #42 allows you to compare each teams' numbers fairly easily. As a Mets fan, I hate the way they do it. But why does the number matter when they dedicated the entrance of the ballpark to a guy who didn't ever play for the team? The Mets decision making process in regards to which numbers they choose to retire has always been a joke (no Piazza), so why would they do a good job with 42? Also they've put a new seating area in front of the numbers that totally obscure them. But I digress ... Moving on, how does your team immortalize Jackie Robinson's 42. Post pictures of 42 so we can see them all in one post.
