  1. I made this a few years back when I originally started to work on a CFB series that fizzled out. I recently cleaned some of it up and worked on it a bit over the break, and as always, C&C appreciated.
  2. Michigan Wolverine Logo

    Back in 2010 I created a Michigan Wolverines logo and it looked pretty good for my skill-set at that time. But, now I've been constantly seeing flaws. So I've gone back and re-tooled it! Let me know if I upgraded or downgraded it and any other C&C. 2010: 2016:
  3. Ann Arbor Blues hockey concept

    A continuation of teams from a minor league or semi-pro league the Great Lakes Hockey Assoc. Following the Marathon Argos and the Chicago Huskies. These are the Ann Arbor Blues. Not like the music blues but the color after the Michigan Wolverines. The the oak tree and the three stripes on the roundel and throughout the design comes from the flag of Ann Arbor. The shield logo is to have a university look to it with the Latin phrase "Fortes Fortuna Iuvat" meaning "Fortune Favors the Brave" I have some ideas for teams but any ideas for teams would be welcomed. Teams do not need to be on the lake just in states and provinces surrounding them. Next possible team is the Mackinac Islanders or another name, maybe a team in Green Bay or somewhere in Wisconsin. Any comments welcomed and appreciated. This will be sent to HJC later on
  4. Chicago Huskies hockey

    Chicago Huskies concept is part of the fictional Great Lakes Hockey Association that also has my other concept for the league the Marathon Argos based in Marathon, Ontario. I plan on posting this to Hockeyjerseyconcepts. I altered the UConn Huskies logo to look more like my huskie Moxie's fur patterns and tones. She has more of a cream tone and not white that is why there is little to no white color in the concept. and the pawprint is based off of her own pawprint . There will be more designs of other teams coming possibly.
  5. Jordan Brand x NCAA Women's Volleyball

    I've been attending as many of Michigan's women's volleyball home games as I can this season, for the first time ever, because one of my sisters likes to go and my dad bought her season tickets. Thanks to that chaperoning, I've become more interested in the sport, as well as (of course) the uniforms. NCAA women's volleyball already has its own design language—or at least its own templates provided by major manufacturers—and I wanted to create a concept series where I can engage with that language, adding in some outside influences that are more familiar to me. And so, with Jordan Brand making the unprecedented move of not only outfitting Michigan basketball but also football next season, I started imagining a future where Jordan Brand decided to outfit women's volleyball, starting at Michigan, but then extending to all the other schools who have Jordan Brand contract. I believe that this wouldn't be as much of a stretch as Jordan Brand in football, since volleyball is a court sport just like basketball, and the first "volleyball-specific" Nike shoes were just renamed Nike basketball shoes. Accordingly, I'm going to take design cues from these schools' men's basketball teams and reappropriate them for women's volleyball uniforms. (I'm using men's basketball uniforms and not women's because, as women's volleyball is exceedingly more relevant than men's, men's basketball is more relevant than women's.) Even though Michigan basketball has never previously been outfitted by Jordan Brand, I imagine that JB will take full advantage of the ability for Michigan to once-again acknowledge the Fab Five, who pioneered a couple Nike shoes on their own, as well as introducing the baggy shorts and black socks to the college basketball crowd (which Jordan did for the NBA). Thus, I decided to carry over the trim and mismatching outlined numbers from those Fab Five-era uniforms (all 3 maize, blue, and white variations). I used the updated block Ms, though instead of including large ones on each leg of the shorts, I just stuck them on their current shorts and chest locations. Like I said, using design cues from past Jordan Brand or Jordan-esque men's basketball uniforms and reappropriating them for current Jordan Brand schools' women's volleyball unis. Here's how my first draft turned out: I have a few questions for C&C: I decided to go without a similarly-trimmed collar because it didn't look right connected to the Nike piping, but do you think I could use one?I don't know any Jordan Brand fonts besides the one for the Charlotte Hornets (which I used for this template). Any tips for one I could use for the jersey numbers and NOB?I'm just using the official color values off Michigan's brand guidelines page, but do you think I should use a more neon maize or darker blue?I'm not very scientific with my outlines (I just go with what looks right), but I feel like the blue jersey could use some thicker maize outlines for the trim. Or should I copy the Fab Five's trim completely and go maize-white-blue-white-maize?Oh, and shoutout to Lafarge for the original women's volleyball concept thread on CCSLC, from which I acquired a women's volleyball uniforms template and who also alerted me to the "solid jersey" rule passed by the NCAA in 2013.
  6. Michigan Football 2016

    With news of the Jordan logo being featured on Michigan's uniforms, I decided to whip up some concepts.
  7. Michigan Returning To Nike

    http://www.maizenbrew.com/2015/7/6/8900681/report-u-m-will-announce-nike-as-its-apparel-provider-this-week
  8. I think a lot of yall will be interested in this, especially in light of Adidas planning to bow out from the NBA. I know as a U-M alum I'd love for Michigan to go back to Nike. I wouldn't mind Under Armour either, but it would be a little weird following the same path as Notre Dame (the only question would be whether it's more weird to join the same manufacturer that Ohio State and Michigan State are with).
  9. Flint Tropics Hockey - OHL

    So, a few weeks back, news broke that the Plymouth Whalers were being sold and relocated to Flint, Michigan. It was also said that there would be a fan vote for the new name of the team. Every article I read about this had tons of comments with people suggesting the name "Flint Tropics".... Why not that name? It comes from a popular and very quotable Will Ferrell movie which I feel would drive team popularity through the roof with casual OHL and CHL fans not only in Michigan, but North America as a whole. Semi Pro apparel and Halloween costumes have been popular since the movie came out in 2008. I love the identity of this team, even if it is fictional and ridiculous for a team in Michigan to be named anything tropical. I think a modernized version of this identity could translate nicely onto a hockey jersey so I wanted to give it a shot. I had a few early sketches for a very crazy third jersey and I needed a placeholder logo. I don't want to reveal that jersey just yet, but my quick little sketch logo actually looked like it would be perfect. It was a palm tree and doubled as a "T", so I've been playing with its shape and am looking for some C&C on the logo.
  10. Western Michigan Redesign Concept

    Western Michigan Football has been dubbed the Oregon of the MAC because of their multiple uniform combinations they have pulled out this past season, I decided to create my own rendition of what I would love to see them wearing on the field. If you aren't aware, ever since PJ Fleck the youngest FBS football coach in the country arrived at WMU, things began to change. Fleck decided to creative a "new" logo for the broncos, that I think looks heck of a lot better! He also decided to utilize the colors schemes a lot better. The Broncos have had some hideous uniforms up until 2013. What do you guys think of these? Wasn't to sure what to do with the socks. What other Color Schemes would you add? Their main colors are Black, Gold, White, and Brown. I think a grayish uniform would look pretty sick too! Any ideas or critics? This is my first attempt at creating concept uniforms but I'm fairly familiar with photoshop. Ps. I don't want to go all crazy like Oregon with colors, Although I think they make some sweet uniforms, I also like tradition!
  11. I had this idea for a michigan football concept, and I wanted to work on a nike-like template (because that's the template I've been currently using, and I am, above all else, fairly lazy). My thought was to work with the triple stripe motif of the iconic helmet, and carry that to other parts of the uniform. It wasn't until I was about half way done that I realized this concept has them abandoning Adidas for Nike, but adding in a triple stripe, which is of course, an Adidas trademark. I'm sure a lot of people will have a hard time getting over that. But then I though, what the hell. It isn't like Adidas truly owns the idea of three stripes side by side. A lot of teams use that. Also, the Wolverine helmet has used three stripes forever, and it is at least as iconic as Adidas' logo. But the biggest "what the hell" of all is, its not like this uniform is actually going to happen. Anyway, here it is... (On a side note, as a proud graduate of tOSU, it took a lot not to include a wide yellow stripe down the back! )
  12. Adidas's "Made in March" System

    Gotta love marketing speak: "To evoke team unity and spirit, Made in March uniforms feature the Wolverines team name across the chest". Looks as if they're mainly just trying to show off Adidas tech, literally highlighting some of it with maize. Press release here. EDIT: Rest of the uniforms here.
  13. Wolverine 2.0

    I recently got back into an old wolverine logo that I had put together in 2011. While it felt good to get a little closure on that concept I still wasn't satisfied. It needed more aggression, but with a hint of personality. So I did some research and compiled some reference photos: And this is what I came up with:
