  1. So as I sit here and watch Last Chance U on Netflix, I get the urge to try and tackle a possible rebrand of JUCO football teams here in the Magnolia State. Being a lifelong resident of the Coast, I wanted to start with Mississippi Gulf Coast (MGCCC) in Perkinston, as it is the "hometown" team around these parts. So for now, they are as far as I have gotten. I plan on doing the rest at some point, and you can follow that at huntthejones.wordpress.com if you wish. For those who don't know, they go by simply by Perk, Gulf Coast, or MGCCC. They are the Bulldogs, and their colors are Navy, Gold, White, and they have started to integrate a light Grey here recently that I think I'll run with as well. A quick Google search will turn up their current logo set which includes a rendition of the old Mississippi State primary, where "STATE" is replaced by "GULF COAST" and a secondary bulldog head that you see in Walmart on the local high school team shirts. The primary is pretty much cemented into the culture around the school (so much so that they have unofficially adopted the phrase "Hail Perk", so replacing it won't ever do, and I attempted to upgrade what is there by simply, well, making it simpler. The bulldog was my real project here. I wanted to create something that was iconic, simple, and theirs. So I searched an image for their particular mascot and turned up this as my inspiration: I sketched it up quickly and tried to turn it into a logo, which is where I need some C&C as I feel like it's missing something. So without any further rambling, here is the tentative logo set. My questions are, how does the Bulldog function as a logo, what does it need? Should I drop they Grey entirely? C&C please. Uniforms, etc. to follow.
  2. Mississippi Football League

    Welcome to the Mississippi Football League! Anyone can join in and make their own concepts. If you don't know any cities in Mississippi, then here are some popular ones you can use. Jackson Brandon Pearl Clinton Madison Hattiesburg Petal Laurel Magee McComb Natchez Gulfport Biloxi Meridian Canton Yazoo City Vicksburg Kosciusko Ridgeland Carthage Philadelphia Greenville Louisville (LU-IS-VIL) Columbus Starkville Oxford Greenwood Brookhaven Tupelo Clarksdale Grenada Southaven Pascagoula Hazlehurst (Look up one of these cities for more info). My team is the Brandon Stags!
  3. At the University of Mississippi, the athletic teams are the heart of the student body. Whether it is a crisp Autumn Saturday Locking the Vaught, getting weird at the Pavilion, or a sunny and 75 beer shower at Swayze, it is safe to say that the Rebels are the largest entity that can unite the students, faculty, fanbase, and state as one giant, high-spirited, hospitable, and often inebriated, family. With that being said, why not try to unite the different sports teams, at least in uniform aesthetics? With this concept, that is exactly what I have attempted to do. What it will consist of are football, baseball, and basketball uniforms and their various combinations, as well as a "new" group of wordmarks and number font that will send Ole Miss into this new era of national recognition and success in one recognizable and "fresh" brand, while still encapsulating and embracing the traits and nuances of the Rebel legends before them (How ya like that for "Nike-speak," eh?). Forward Together, Rebs. We are Ole Miss.
  4. Colonel Reb Logo Concept

    So I have been working on this logo for a while now, and I think that I am ready to share. The inspiration behind the idea is actually the new Georgia Bulldogs logo with the front facing bulldog head. Took a trip to Athens for a game with my girlfriend and saw it on merchandise and loved it. The rest is history. Let me know what y'all think. It is blurry and has my name in it right now because that is my attempt to keep it from getting snagged my some random t-shirt guy. I have a high quality image made, just wanted to throw that out there before it was questioned.
  5. Over the past week, I have been doing a concept series involving Mississippi High School Football teams, releasing them on Twitter four at a time. Today, I finished with 25 teams from Mississippi and one from Alabama. Click on the link below to see all of them with details and descriptions: http://mshsfootballhelmets.blogspot.com/p/blog-page_27.html
  6. Had an idea for a slight change in Ole Miss' Road Jerseys as far as the script on the chest. Changing the "Ole Miss" to "Mississippi" since we are the University of Mississippi, and have "Ole Miss" on the Grey jerseys (bring them back). Let me know what you think. FYI: This is not a name conspiracy thing about not liking "Ole Miss" (yes that is now being debated here). Just an idea I thought was cool to embrace being Mississippi.
  7. I'm a long time admirer and decided to try out my own concept for the first time. I am attending the University of Mississippi and decided to remake their football uniform with the excitement on campus for the recruiting class and football team. I do not know how to use Photoshop but have always been okay with Paint, so that is how I made them. Comments and criticism are WELCOME! You can only improve when the opportunity is presented to you! Let me know what yall think and what should change if anything! Thanks! I'll start off with the navy home jersey: I went with a classic look in all of my sets, so they will all follow this sort of simple look. I used the "Rebels" script from the baseball uniforms which is probably my favorite script. And I used the circle SEC logo, but since it is navy also, you can't notice the circle. Next is the red home jersey: Just like the navy jersey I used the "Rebels" baseball script. And I accented the red with navy on the cuffs and collar. The road white jersey: Here I used the more well known "Ole Miss" script. Road or home grey jersey: Same as the white jersey, just the Ole Miss grey. Throwback white jersey: Here I used our current away set, but just removed the navy outline from the script and added the "SEC" logo to the collar. I feel like the removal of the navy gives it the throwback feel I am looking for, like you get when seeing the Ole Miss uniforms from back in the day. The Helmets: Sticking with the same navy helmet that the team currently wears because if something isn't broken, don't fix it. And for the throwback uniform: Powder Blue with the grey face mask. Also, I found an older version of the "Ole Miss" script. Alternate White Throwback Helmet: Just for fun.
  8. The State of Mississippi officially ratified the 13th Amendment, which outlawed slavery … nearly 150 years after most of the states in the union did. The gross delay, fixed earlier this month, was the result of a clerical error that left unrecorded what many state officials thought was its official ratification nearly 20 years ago. The Mississippi Legislature had actually formally ratified the historic amendment in 1995, which even then was more than a century late, but because the ratification document was never presented to the U.S. archivist, it was never considered official. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/mississippi-finally-ratifies-slavery-ban-article-1.1267133 -------------- State officials are confident that by 2027 they will ratify a bill allowing interracial marriage, until then they are assembling local militia to send over to Vietnam.
