  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. Padres Concept

    So after looking at the Padres' past uniforms and what they have now, it's obvious what they used to have is better. I wanted to bring back brown but use a color from their recent history, so I went with the powder blue from the logo used 2004-2011. One of my biggest design rules is, with a unique color scheme, you can have rather simple uniforms. So by using powder blue and brown, I think the Padres can have a very unique look while doing something new. The home uses the script from 1974-1977. I used the original primary logo on the sleeve but made it brown and white. Finally, the cap logo from 1985-2003 is found on the hat. The away uses the wordmark from the 1991-2003 roads sans dropshadow. Primary Alt Road Alt C&C appreciated
  3. Padres Swingin' Friar: A Refresh

    Hello All! The concept I hope will speak for itself, but I'll throw in some words anyways! I've always loved the Swingin' Friar. Every version of it has been on my list of baseball favorites, whether in brown robes, navy robes, or even that burgundy-ish robe he donned for a little while. Though I'm perfectly cool with it as-is, I've always wanted to try out putting my own stamp on it and giving him a little update. So, off I went! I made sure to include a few different color variations (including a personal favorite of mine that doesn't get tossed around as much as it should as an idea: brown and khaki), as well as a nod-to-the-inaugural version with circle included. There's a little something for everyone!.....unless you like orange..... Well anyways, not much else needs be said! Here's my take on the Swingin Friar!
  4. 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!
  5. I've decided to take a break from my MLB in shorts series to work on something new and different. Inspired by @Discrimihater's fantastic MLB Rivalry Series, I tried my hand at a few lesser known rivalries in MLB. First up is the rivalry between the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners, nicknamed the "Vedder Cup." The name comes from Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder, who, despite being one of the more high profile Cubs fans in the world, has called both Seattle and San Diego home at various points. Let's start off with the Padres: Despite the fact that the Padres/Mariners rivalry didn't technically begin until 1998, San Diego and Seattle have a long history that dates back to the Pacific Coast League days in the 1960s. The Padres home set is based on this PCL Padres jersey and utilizes their present day color scheme of navy and yellow. The road set is a sand and brown version of their current alternate and uses the "Taco Bell" cap design with the Swingin' Friar sleeve patch. Next we have the Mariners: The Mariners home set is based on the Seattle Rainiers PCL uniform but utliizes the M's present-day colors. Hard to tell because these images are scanned in but the home set is off-white. Now, I'm particularly happy with how the Mariners' road set turned out. It's basically a cross between the M's blue & gold fauxback and their Turn Ahead the Clock one-off from 1999. Next up will be the Detroit Tigers vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates, and I have some crazy ideas planned for those teams. Stay tuned and C&C much appreciated!
  6. Cream Jerseys?

    Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed a few teams' home jerseys look cream this year? I'm specifically talking about the Padres, Mariners, and to a lesser extent the Astros. Maybe it's just the lighting against the new materials, or maybe it's on purpose. Anyone else? Here's a comparison for the M's. Couldn't find any good action shots for the Padres, whom I really notice it on. Shows up well in game footage. 2016 2015:
  7. If I owned the Padres...

    So the other day I was watching MLB Central and they were talking about the Padres. One of the hosts said something along the lines of, "As the owner of the Padres, where do you go next to fix this ball club?" So I got to thinking, being the sports logo/uniform lover I am, I would start be tweaking the teams identity. I then looked over at my Green and Gold military appreciation Padres on field hat, and thought about how that is my favorite color scheme to see the team wearing. This redesign is what resulted. I wanted to take their current wordmarks/logos and make some color changes, tweak the uniforms, and give them an updated primary logo. My goal was to stay simple and not get too crazy with it, so here it is. New Primary Logo: Home Uniform: Road Uniform: Alternates: BP Uniform:
  8. Padres navy/gold concept

    I whipped these up after the Padres unveiled the 2016 All-Star Game logo, taking my cues from there. The uniforms are (obviously) blue and yellow with a bit of "battleship" grey and they borrow heavily from the 2004-11 look, just like the ASG logo does. That includes bringing back the old Friar. C&C is welcomed.
  9. Mocked up this concept for the 2016 All-Star Game logo. Not too excited about idea of Padres' new colors potentially being the navy, grey, and athletic gold that's seen in the official logo so mocked up this one in brown/orange colors and adding in the Friar logo. Big ass dap to my friend Leroy712 who came up w/ the idea of adding the Friar. Alternate color-up adding the gold to the brown/orange:
  10. Padres navy/orange concept

    This is a sequel to me earlier brown Padres series. That one was more wishful thinking while this one is a helpful suggestion to the team, which seems pretty set on switching back to navy and orange next season (the team has been overloading on 98 nostalgia and the new team president cut his teeth with that team). My goal was to update the 98 look by modernizing it and keep unique among all the other teams that wear orange. I also didn't want to go too heavy in one direction as the either, as Padres fans can be a bit sensitive about looking too much like the Giants or the Dodgers. I think I did a good job of splitting the difference but of course, constructive criticism is welcome. I hope that the home and road jerseys speak for themselves but I know some explanation is needed for the navy alt. I went blue-on-blue as a tribute to the alternate jersey the Padres wore in 98, which is a personal favorite. I played around with a white-on-blue look and it didn't look bad but I thought I'd start with this one and see what people think. If the reception to this is OK, I have a camo version planned and a brown alternate (the Padres are supposedly thinking about wearing brown on Fridays).
  11. Padres #bringbackthebrown concept

    This is the first concept that I've posted on here, though I have been honing my Paint and Gimp-reliant craft for a while now. Here I'm presenting the first of a six part (it's 2015, after all) series for the Padres, returning them to their brown glory. I've combined bits and pieces of each era in what I hope is a modern package. I'm only positing the home jerseys now because I want to get some notes before moving on to the rest, so any CC is greatly appreciated. And to give credit, I'm using a template from the "Paint users paradise" thread.
  12. Been a while since you seen something outta me, ain't it?? Well, every now and then I can still do this stuff. So let's get on with this... ...Been a bit of chatter going on 'round the interwebs lately about a certain Major League Baseball team considering yet another identity update. Considering their past one was what, three or four years ago, suffice it to say this club might well be one of the most schizophrenic in all of American major pro sports. That said, whatever they do next, they really need to make sure it hits home and can actually last, so they can quit changing clothes more often than some of us change socks. Popular opinion holds that the San Diego Padres should revisit and return to the brown and yellow colors. For one, its a unique colorway in that no other major pro four sports teams use it, and for two, it actually has bona fide history behind it--henceforth, where the main idea of this concept set goes. You see, when many mention a return to brown and yellow, many also indirectly pine for a near-facsimile of something akin to the Padres' sets of the '70s or whatnot. Here's the other problem I've seen with the Padres over the years: to me, it seems they have no clear clue of what direction they want to take their identity. The former logo set emphasized more of the "beach", with colors to match (sky blue and sand). That's all and good...except baseball, as we all know, has overall the most tradition-laden visual appearance of all. So bearing all that in mind, here's the question I posed in my own brain: how can I set upon an angle no one's yet really tried, to concoct an identity that the people in, and even out of, San Diego can immediately connect to at first glance? THE BRAND As we all know, "padre" translates to "father". The original Pacific Coast League Padres got their name from the Spanish friars of the Franciscan Great Order, who founded the city way back in 1541. Of the four great orders, the Franciscans were distinguished by their brown robes and were sometimes known as "brown friars" (so now you know where the brown in the color scheme comes from). For the Catholics among us, you know that priests are sometimes referred to as "father"; hence the word, and this team's name, "Padres". I based this set around the brown as well, albeit a bit of a different shade, one I call, aptly enough, "mission brown". (For any of you who happen to work in the roofing business, that's also one of GAF Timberline's designer shingle colors...and as I currently work in the business, the color name stuck in my mind and as such here it is now. Don't know if they pulled that name from this same source or not, though...lol.) The secondary color is golden yellow, but instead of inserting orange, I mixed in a bit of another color prominent in the Catholic church, cardinal. These two colors also come directly from the San Diego city flag, so they fit perfectly. THE IDENTITY Some of you may have deduced by now that the direction of this set is heavily rooted in history, particularly that of San Diego. Some of those friars I mentioned last paragrpah built missions in and around California, such as this one, the Mission San Diego de Alcala. And see, that right there is exactly the place I went for this whole set. The primary logo features a caricature version of the belfry of this particular mission, with an updated version of the script from the original PCL Padres uniforms. I'm actually pretty proud of how that turned out, since I vehemently suck at trying to render baseball scripts. I also worked the arch forms of that belfry prominently into this concept, as seen on the main logo. It's also worked into the road script and jersey numbers, as well. Mixed in a bit of cardinal for depth, but not so much as to compete with the yellow. I kept the swinging friar around as an additional logo, along with a slightly edited version of the Padres' current cap logo. THE IMAGE This is what I hope you will see with where I tried to base this identity; if your emotional and sensory reactions match up with what I was trying to create, I'll know this was a success. Of course, there's only one way to know, so here they are... *Note: if for some reason these images are not working, you can also check this project out over in my corner of the dribbbleverse, as well as my personal portfolio over on Behance. Lemme know what y'all think...like I said, it's been a long time. ~Buc

  15. My Favorite Logos

    After the FSU "leaked" logo got around,I thought I might share my favorite logos,unis,Ect. You can share your favorite logos,as I will like to get your interests in sport logos. I will be counting it up from 1 to 100. I will try to get an equal number of uniforms,logos per sport league. Hope you have fun!
  16. So I am not a huge fan of the Padres uniforms as of late, they are not bad looking but I just am not that interested in them so I decided to try my hand at some Padres Uniforms. I have loads of MLB concepts that I will posting in a new thread shortly but I thought I'd like to get some C&C on my padres concepts. And to give credit where credit is due the Uniform template is based off of Tim O'Brien's template, I just added a few elements to the template. The Cleat and Batting glove templates are ones that I created and are original designs, not existing nike cleats and batting gloves. Thanks!
  17. I am a huge San Diego Padre fan and amongst my many complaints about my team is their boring uniforms. Brown and mustard are the colors that the Friars should be wearing. Despite what some think, brown and mustard can look classy (maybe this can get in front of the eyes of the Padres owners). Without further ado here is my first attempt at a Padres brown and mustard redesign... (note i just did this on microsoft paint so i am looking for more recommendations about the grand scheme rather than the fine details as i am not terribly experienced on any other graphic design software, but feel free to critique).
