  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. pittsburghsports16's MLB Tweak Series

    It's been a long long time since I've done this, but I've really been itching to get back at this stuff! I'll just get right into it with the rules: Rules: In my series, I'll be tweaking every MLB team, going alphabetically in the AL first, then the NL. The rules for each MLB team consist of the following: 1) 3 Caps 2) 1 pair of socks 3) 3 Pants 4) 1 Belt 5) 1 Long-sleeved undershirt 6) 3 Short-sleeved undershirts 7) 6 Non-buttoned "game vests" (3 for home, 3 for road) 8) 3 Logos Home uniforms feature white, off-white, or gray game vests. Road uniforms have colored game vests. Pants can be also be colored. Teams: 1) Baltimore Orioles Baltimore Orioles Background Image Credit: pxleyes.com / ("http://www.pxleyes.com/images/contests/city-bw/fullsize/Camden-Yards-4e41903f0f411_hires.jpg") For the Orioles, I kept everything a hopefully balanced mix of modern and retro. I also wanted the two main colors to have about a 55% orange and 45% black color balance. The primary logo features the current bird perched upon the "Orioles" script. The secondary logo has the "O's" logo inside the classic roundel. The tertiary logo is a slightly tweaked version of the retro oriole head logo. Too lazy to describe the 6 uniforms.

  4. Beltway Series: Orioles vs Nationals

    It's been a while since my last concept, so I figure the time was right to roll this duo out. Orioles That I've forgone road grays hasn't been too unusual. That I've junked home whites, though...for starters, the same black pants are worn for both home and road unis. The home jersey mimicks an oriole's torso, with an orange chest and the rest is black. Kinda like the various BP jerseys with the odd paneling and contrasting backs, but simpler and better conceived IMO. Thick sleeve striping is modeled after the 60s Orioles' stirrups, and unusually for the O's, the front uses predominantly white lettering. The all black road set is based on the 1901 Orioles, though I figured I'd replace the O actually worn with a B. The right sleeve is adorned with the classic swinging oriole, and the Lord Baltimore flag (the gold/black portions of the Maryland flag) provides the sublimated torso/sleeve pattern. Nationals If anyone remembers that one time the Red Sox hosted the Cubs, and Boston came out in uniforms that literally only had back numbers, the home uniform here references that same era...the Walter Johnson era, to be more specific. Hybrid of the 1910 Senators (the contrasting placket) and 20s Nats (W's on sleeves and pinstripes) with the current team's red instead of navy, this being more of a tribute uniform than a true throwback. The roadie takes inspiration from the 50s Senators' "3D" home uniforms, though as the curly W doesn't look good with the shadow style that the 50s jersey used, I went with the DC insetad. On each sleeve are three stars above two red stripes, taken from the Washington D.C. flag. As you can see, the numbers got the same treatment as the DC. Far as the near future goes, I am going forward with likely the only intraleague rivalry of the bunch, Pirates-Phillies...as in the Pirates are done, but I haven't really started on the Phils yet. After that, I have a few good Cards-Royals ideas, I wanna flesh those out a bit more.
  5. Buck Showalter jackets

    Does anybody know what's up with Buck Showalter being the ONLY manager/coach/player that doesn't wear the same jackets as everybody else? He's always wearing a jacket that nobody else has... For instance tonight (July 5th @ Red Sox) he wore an all black windbreaker with an oriole head logo on the chest. No other teams seem to have these and just wear the Majestic jackets with the different colored sleeves...Anybody have any info on that?
  6. I'm back with another crossover series, but I will be more lenient on the NFL's rules regarding how many helmets/jerseys. So without further adieu, the Baltimore Orioles.
  7. Orioles Logo Redesign

    As a lifelong Baltimore Orioles fan and a graphic designer specializing in branding, I’m a huge fan of the organization’s decision to go back to the cartoon bird as the team’s primary cap logo two years ago. That said, when the new logo was released in November of 2011, I was disappointed that it failed in recreating a few key details of the logos from the 60s, 70s & 80s. Thus, in an effort to give my beloved O's the best logo possible, I've redesigned the logo to more accurately capture the essence of the logos of the past. Here's what I came up with: Comparison to current logo: I'd to hear your thoughts on the changes I've made. Any feedback is appreciated! Also, if you'd like to see more, and view the proposal I sent to the Orioles Director of Marketing, you can visit my site at: http://johnadsit.com/orioles.html. There's also a nice write-up on my logo over at cartoonbird.mlblogs.com.
  8. MLB Latin Jersey Concepts

    The latin jerseys have only been used by the Brewers and the Giants, but here are two personally created for the Pirates (Piratas) and Orioles (Los Orioles). I'll be posting more soon. Pirates Orioles
