  1. Saw these retro General Mills cereal boxes at Target today. Not sure what the occasion is, if any, but they're holding a contest to win retro t-shirts with these designs as well: They're all really good designs actually. Cinnamon Toast Crunch box should be made permanent (I know they just updated their design, but I love this retro box even more). EDIT: Exceeded max size for photos; more photos below.
  2. The year is 1974, new ownership has taken over the struggling Tams franchise. With a new team, a new identity, and unwavering support, basketball in Memphis is happenin' again! Can ya dig it?
  3. so, 2 thoughts inspire this thingy could i 'paper doll' a line of NBA legends in illustrator & the weirdness of the 80-81 topps set. 3 players random players on a card and you were seriously meant to rip the cards apart! no rhyme or reason here. sometimes the year is a career highlight.... or maybe when i think they just looked the coolest. ill try to be as accurate as possible with the unis and dudes. part of the fun is sleuthing out references to making vector logos from scratch off of an memorabilia auction photo, to figuring out some dudes hairline, to making sure what color Dr.J's knee brace was in 1976.... shoutout to blase!
  4. This retro-alternate universe doohickey deletes baseball and makes soccer America's national pastime. The AFA American Football Association (1884) was a real organization that flamed out in the early 20th century, but not here! Lots of actual baseball history is used to fill up the AFA's back story. Stadiums are gonna be made in 3D with Sketchup and rendered in Visualizer! 201603-AFA-1st-division.jpg There's the setup for the 1st division. Promotion/relegation within the 4 divisions. Clubs and stadiums are inspired by a regions baseball history. Naming of the grounds follows the old British style of using the local area or a main street. Club names are all over the place because this league absorbed two other leagues that had their own naming conventions. The Western teams are mostly based off the real pre-1958 Pacific Coast League. Because there's promotion/relegation this table just represents a moment in time (...more like my to-do list....). 201603-AFA-LOGO.jpg There's the AFA logo wacky tunnelvison process work. First row set was trying to incorporate the American eagle and a 1 (as in 1st Division) into something. The overall idea was trying for a sleek art-deco bald eagle logo, which turned into an epic struggle to avoid anything boy london-ish . Each wing represents the East/West clubs. ..........aaaaand i've just saw theres already an epic concept topic using the AFA name. well. damn. onwards! -------------------------------------------------------- Completed clubs: 3/27 - FCNY 4/12 - NYCFC
  5. This is a logo I created to brand the Vancouver Amazons en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vancouve…... (Their original logo is on their sweaters in the pictures) While the Amazons weren't the first women's ice hockey team to ever exist they were the first ever women's team out of Vancouver to compete in any type of cup in a tournament. Established in 1921... In 1922 they would go on to win the Alpine Club Cup. This is my first in a line of 1800's to early 1900's of women's hockey logos I will be creating and posting. These women are some of the forgotten pioneers of the sport of Hockey and should be remembered and honored. For more info on the women's teams of the late 1800's and early 1900's you should check out "Hockey, A People's History" documentary which tells the story of the beginning of Hockey in the 1800's (both men and women's hockey) all the way up to current hockey. I recommend any fan checks it out. I own it on dvd but the entire series is posted on Youtube in parts so you can watch the whole thing.
  6. It is no secret that sports fans are into the concept of the throwback, so some rich investprs decided to fund a football league based on this concept. The Old-School Gridiron Football League throws back to a simpler time when football wasn't dominated by 300lb giants, and great players could do it all. In the OGFL, players play on both sides with limited substitution, so they have to be more athletic. Also, the rounder ball from the early days of American football is used making the drop kick a more important play. Gone is the spread with only one player allowed split 8 yards past the tackle, as are the punt formation and prevent with backs not allowed deeper than 8 yards on either side of the ball. Dropped kicks are worth 4 points while place kicks are only worth 2. Teams must go for two after a touchdown, and fair catch doesn't exist. The equipment used is based on that of the early days of football but made more safe thanks to modern materials. The first team we will be introducing are the Kalamazoo Yankees. They get their name from the "Yankee" farmers that inhabited the area in the 1800s coming from New England. They use the Single wing formation and are led by Tailback/Linebacker Bradley Fischl.
  7. The genesis of this actually came while I was working on a Hartford Whalers concept at work. I kept trying to play with the W to become a harpoon but I couldn't get the H right. Then I flipped the harpoon and got a trident and the rest as they say is history. The new Primary Logo brings back the Trident modified for a 2016 look. The Gold used is lifted straight from the 1977 Cap Logo, while the new shade of blue is 50% the classic royal blue and 50% the Mariners current shade of blue. The two letter set up for the primary logo got me thinking to have two different caps for home and road (and attached is a concept for the alt cap that uses the classic colors). Naturally S is on the road cap and the Trident-M is on the home. The Script logo is an updated version of the wordmark used from 1977-1979. The font used is called "Ravencroft" which I chose for mix of sharp points and wavy edges the letters (particularly how the middle of the M comes to a point and how the R and N mirror the I grabbed my attention even though playing with the M to make a trident didn't work) And last but not least are the wordmarks for the uniforms which I'm still working on. I adjusted the road grey color to be more blue compared to the current greys which have a green tint to them. There will be at least one alt jersey in royal or powder blue. As always C+C is always welcome and I hope you enjoy this rebrand as much as I did making it! Cap designs, uniforms and MLB Required Roundel Logo coming in due time!
  8. Hey everyone! I love this website and just recently found the forums section and have found a lot of interesting threads. However, I was unable to find a thread of retro college football uniforms (late 60s/70s/80s/90s/ even early 2000s) I love making retro uniforms on NCAA Teambuilder, but it is so hard to find retro uniforms unless you search for a specific player from that team in a given era. For example, if I want a 1984 maryland uniform, I need to look up "Boomer Esiason maryland football" in google, and even then its usually a crap shoot. But here is a chance to put some uniforms that you grew up loving in this thread So, for the greater good of the whole comunity, lets just make a thread completely devoted to college football retro uniforms! Please include the year that the uniform was worn! good luck everyone! hope this projhect is a success! I'll start us off! Vinny Testaverde, Miami U, 1989 PSU Joe Jurevicius 1997 With a little bit of late 90s USC in there too lol
  9. So I was feeling a bit nostalgic for my favorite Phillies unis and decided that I'd create a font based on their old logos from the 1980's. I brought in a lot of inluences that I could find and tried to make a font that fits the bill. Here are a few samples: Here's the characters I've created, as well as some of the ligatures and stylistic alternates I've created: Let me know if you have any comments or if you have other samples of the letters from back then you'd like to see added. I plan on releasing it once it get it all tweaked! I think I have most of the kerning done. I've uploaded an initial release here. Download it, give it a try, and let me know if there are any problems with it!
  10. Well been playing with this idea for a while and I desided to do the whole NHL in those lovely 90's wild 3rd. With all of its gradient stripes, Printed patterns, and oversided logos and wild fonts. First one in the series I've done is the Blue Jackets with the classic bee logo
  11. Aloha. ITT i'll post some Nike NBA concepts i'm working on, all done in the distinct nike style. Charlotte Hornets Home : For this one, I wanted to try out a revival of the 90's "Big Logo Shorts". Its a WIP. CC welcome. Please enlarge for detail! Detail:
  12. My Brewers alternate throwback logo that I posted yesterday got a good response so I am adding another one of my concepts today. But first, a little bit of backstory... I am obsessed with logos that were designed in the 70's. So that got me wondering: what if some teams that have had the same logo since their inception before 1970 got a new logo in the 70's? What would it look like? The first team I did was the Kansas City Chiefs. I combined a red capital K with a football shape that is made up of a black C and an arrowhead. I am a big fan of diagonal stripes so I couldn't help but include them as the laces on the football. Plus it is kind of reminiscent of warpaint. Here is the logo: . . . . I'd love to hear what you guys think!
  13. Before such things as Sportslogos.net and Uni-Watch.com, I was busy doing this: A little DIY project, circa 1972. One red baseball hat + one powder blue sweatshirt cut off above the elbows (one displeased mom included) + masking tape + red magic markers = a DIY 1972 Phillies Steve Carlton road jersey! Note both the sleeve stripes and arched NOB. Not bad for a ten-year-old if I do say so myself.
  14. So I know JCRGraphix is already doing this, but let's see what other people can come up with.
  15. It's been forever, several years actually, since I've posted a non-alternate universe concept on this board. Been wanting to do a rethinking of the Astros for a very long time, especially for the past two years since a uniform change to the old colors was announced. I figured instead of doing up the whole concept and unleashing it all at once, I'd instead post the individual elements as I go and allow for feedback and critique to steer it into territories that even I may not have conceived. So here it is, the modernized yet retro rethinking of the classic Houston Astros rainbows. Enjoy.
  16. This is a Baylor Retro Concept that I made after seeing their uniforms that they wore against Texas. This is the full bear logo with word mark. http://s800.photobucket.com/user/BaylorKing/media/RetroBaylorLogoBear_zps80f5cf24.png.html?sort=3&o=0
  17. The day after suffering a horrible evisceration at the hands of Ricky Ray and the Toronto Argonauts, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers have made a feeble attempt at distracting their increasingly restive fanbase by introducing a new 80s-inspired third jersey. This jersey is essentially the same as the one that was worn from the early 80s until the end of the 1994 season, a time when the Blue Bombers were a dominant team in the CFL with Grey Cup wins in 1984, 1988 and 1990. The fans have been clamoring for this jersey for some time, mainly because it hits the nostalgia sweet spot for their fans (it's hard to get excited about 1950s throwbacks if you were born in 1976), and also because they are, quite frankly, a beautiful set of unis. My only gripe with these is the tiny looking sleeve logo. As I recall, the sleeve logos were much bigger back in the day... verging on double the size of what's shown in the image below. How hard can it be to look at some vintage photos of the old jerseys in action and actually get the details right? Oh well, other than that they're fine. They almost made me forget about the Bombers getting shredded last night. (Have any other CFL teams rolled out 80s-era thirds yet? I'm assuming that as with the 50s, 60s and 70s-era retros, this is a league-wide thing.)
  18. This is actually an update to a previous concept I did about a year ago. Them being called the Astros, I naturally went with something sleek and futuristic and came up with this... I've been spending too much time at the arcade... ^^; Anyway, I think the uniform is a bit too plain, but I'm not sure what else to add. Any ideas? Also, tell me what you think of the logos, of course.
