  1. Hey, everyone. I just started following soccer this year and this "new" sport (to me) inspired me to do a brand new project: NFL Soccer Crossovers. I just finished the last one so I'm excited to see what you all think of it. When I first started this project, I wanted to do more than simply re-create NFL uniforms on a soccer template. I thought, "if these teams actually WERE in, say, Premier League, what would they look like". I tried to meld the soccer look/feel with their NFL counterpart. Elements from the original team exist, but within new boundaries. Some teams will stay traditional; some you may not expect, but I went crazy with them. Most teams I chose a location that fits more within a Premier League style (ex.: Washington Redskins become Washington FC) and all will have main kit sponsors. Most of the sponsors are the same as the stadium sponsor with a few exceptions. Also in this crossover world, Nike still has their full-league deal that they have with the current NFL. So let's get this started. Below is the order I'll unveil these in, updated every two days (for the mods reading this thread). AFC East: Buffalo Miami Town New York City Premier New England NFC East: Dallas New York United Philadelphia Washington FC AFC North: Cincinnati CP Browns Pittsbrough Ravens NFC North: Detroit United FC Chicago Green Bay Twin Cities AFC South: FC Jacksonville Houston Sporting Indianapolis Titans Athletic NFC South: Atlanta Charlotte City New Orleans Tampa Bay AFC West: Alameda County Denver FCLA Chargers Kansas City NFC West: Atletico Los Angeles Emerald City Phoenix San Francisco AC
  2. I have been watching this site and/or any number of others for some time, and I have come up with some proposed all-time teams and/or team names for various teams in various sports. In this thread, I will mainly start off with all-time teams, and describe the aforementioned sports universe here. Before I get started, however, I must also say that I may have seen certain names for possibly fictional teams all over the Internet that may have been made up by others, and if I happen to have borrowed some from any of you, I may have gathered them unconsciously, or forgotten where I got them from over the years. If I have done so unknowingly with any of your known team names, please keep that in mind. At least partly due to my Asperger's Syndrome, I am also rather forgetful at times, unfortunately, so please forgive me if I don't remember where I may have seen or gathered the names from, and state where I may have done so, at times. Okay, time to get started, folks. I will start with baseball teams and/or leagues first, whether such teams and leagues are real or not. And I will, at least at first, mix players from various eras of franchise histories, and some players may be assigned to certain franchises other than their own main real-world ones for various reasons, including possibly their main teams having no available roster slots for players on their all-time teams, for instance, More about this sports universe will be revealed as time passes, if and when possible. I will welcome opinions about my picks of players and coaches/managers for said teams, et cetera, as long as they are respectful, courteous, civil, constructive, non-threatening, and non-profane, et cetera. But I will not consider any opinions that are not those things, if I don't have to, either in relation to this post/thread I'm making now or any others. I welcome your suggestions, as well, if they meet the above criteria as well. And I can certainly take justified criticism and well-founded correction, I'm sure. The first team I will reveal my envisioning of an all-time roster for, folks, is the Boston Red Sox, from a version of the American League in my sports universe. I will try to go alphabetically by teams in leagues, when possible, as I reveal my hypothetical all-time teams for various franchises, et cetera. for that matter. Please feel free to give your opinions of my picks for players, et cetera, as you wish, then, as requested. But please remember to keep them as appropriate and as clean, et cetera, as possible, folks. Boston Red Sox (Managed by Joe Cronin): OF Ted WIlliams OF-1B Carl Yastrzemski 3B Wade Boggs OF Dwight Evans OF Jim Rice 2B Bobby Doerr SS-3B-2B Johnny Pesky SS Nomar Garciaparra P Cy Young P Roger Clemens C Carlton Fisk P Luis Tiant P Tim Wakefield P Pedro Martinez 1B David Ortiz 2B Dustin Pedroia C Jason Varitek 3B Frank Malzone 1B Mo Vaughn OF Dom DiMaggio P Bob Stanley P Jonathan Papelbon P Mike Timlin P Derek Lowe P Ellis Kinder In this universe, there is also no DH present, for instance, unless otherwise stated, when it comes to baseball or softball, so the pitchers WILL BAT except where I say otherwise. Many of the classic teams will not be able to have all their best players on their rosters, especially with teams like the Yankees, due to the stated roster limit of 25 players. Although I may decide later to add enough players for a 40-man roster per applicable baseball team. I had at least some difficulty picking players for this roster, and with other rosters as well, for reasons including not enough space for certain playing positions on said roster, of course. But I still tried to pick the best possible ones for this roster and certain others, just the same. That is all for now, I think, from this Turtle Pilgrim. I will post at least one of my ideas about a possibly suitable Chicago White Sox all-time roster later, possibly as early as Saturday, if not sooner, I think. Depends on how quickly I can manage it, and depends on how many responses this post/thread gets, at least, most likely. Turtle Pilgrim out. P.S. Unless otherwise stated, certain teams will stay in their classic locations, and I have not yet decided when this universe's starting year is, or starting years are, for various leagues, et cetera. I would welcome any number of well-thought-out suggestions, however, I believe, regarding such, folks. Turtle Pilgrim out. P.P.S. The image you have probably all been waiting for is here: I do not yet know how many of these uniforms I will be able to do without help, though, unfortunately. For the away version of this, imagine the pants and jersey parts, except for the stripes, are gray where you see white, at least for the main areas of the uniform. The font is Augusta. I will not likely be able to do an away version of this uniform, seeing as the image in question was saved on my computer as a JPG file, and then uploaded to DeviantArt as such. So you will probably have to imagine it in your minds, based on this. I got colors from Colorwerx as well, in terms of the RGB numbers, at least, folks. Hope you like this try here, still, though. If anyone might want to help me out here, in terms of creating the artistic renditions of uniforms for teams I will mention, please let me know, and I will see what happens. I can certainly try to do the writing part as best as I can, and then we'll see how things go, on the artistic side, whether I do other uniforms or not as well. Turtle Pilgrim out.
  3. So with @gswansea kicking back up the WFA Club Championship, I've become inspired again to work on the MPL! I feel like last time a lot of the teams were rushed and ended up looking extremely basic. I was having a hard time being creative but I have a new idea to create coat of arms for each city as well as a detailed backstory to help me make each crest unique. This time around I'll start out with posting any logo updates/changes as well as new kits for the 2016-2017 season. In addition I'll try to post weekly match-day updates and scores +tables. I updated the map and just about all the names of cities and the two countries. The hypothetical location would be southwest of Ireland. Granon=French-like, Normania=English-like Not each city on the map will house a team, I was just trying to replicate Google Maps but eventually I'll create a map with the team's locations.
  4. It's time, these usually start around this time of the year and there really isn't anything else left to discuss pertaining to 2016/17. Spurs and Chelseamoving to Nike, so look out for those 2. Seems like Barca is always one of the first to leak..
  5. Hello everyone, It's been a while since I've put a concept series on here. Usually my concept series consist of redoing looks in current leagues, but I wanted to do something different this time. I decided to do a minor soccer league that is based in my home state of Georgia. The goal was to design all my own logos and create unique looks for every team. So here's a little background on the GSL. - 12 teams - 2 conferences - 4 divisions - 16 game regular season - Teams play conference opponents in home-and-home series and play cross-conference opponents once - Division champs meet in playoffs - Northern Conference - East - Athens Arsenal - Augusta Green - Gwinnett Rovers (Lawenceville) - West - Atlanta Phoenix - Chattahoochee FC (Johns Creek) UPDATE - King and Queen FC (Sandy Springs) UPDATE - Southern Conference - East - Brunswick Islanders - Savannah Colonials - State Line FC (Valdosta) - West - Albany 1838 - Columbus Rivermen - Macon Ramblers So that's all you need to know for now. The Athens Arsenal will be posted shortly. And of course C&C is appreciated. Thanks to Michael Taylor aka @raysox for making the templates that I used for this series.
  6. Let's start with a bit of mixing of real and alt history: during the mid 20th Century, Spain and Portugal were under the command of authoritarian regimes (Portugal since 1926 and Spain since 1939). Given these regimes were not only authoritarian but also Fascist-esque, people were ruled by very strict rules about the divertissement and leisure, including football/soccer. The Spanish La Liga, which was cancelled in 1935/36 due to the Civil War, was never taken up again, and in Portugal the Primeira Liga (Experimental) was created in 1934/35, which would be hold until the 1937/38 season, after which the government decided to cancel the competition. Due to these actions, football/soccer stayed at amateur level for many years. Things changed in the mid 70's: in 1974 the Revolução dos Cravos (Carnation Revolution) took place in Portugal, ending with the Estado Novo (New State), approving a democratic constitution in 1976. And in Spain Franco died in 1975, giving way to a democratic state. After both countries overcame the dictatorships, they decided to join forces and created a joint league, in order to help the clubs grow and become strong enough to be able to compete in European competitions. That's how the Liga Ibérica de Fútbol/Futebol (L.I.F.) was born. The Spanish and Portuguese agreed to create a league composed of 22 teams (12 from Spain and 10 from Portugal) and each team would play 42 matches per season. The LIF is still hold nowadays, and among its clubs there are some of the best teams and players in the World. This is the league current logo: And this is the list of the current clubs and the cities in where they play: Spain: Madrid: Sporting de Madrid and Racing Club de Madrid Barcelona: Unió Esportiva Catalana and Dynamo Barcelona Valencia: Club Deportivo Valencia Sevilla: Híspalis Club de Fútbol and Atlético Guadalquivir Zaragoza: Gimnástica Zaragozana Murcia: R̶e̶a̶l̶ ̶M̶u̶r̶c̶i̶a̶ ̶C̶l̶u̶b̶ ̶d̶e̶ ̶F̶ú̶t̶b̶o̶l̶ Recreativo de Murcia Mallorca: Athletic Balear Bilbao: Sociedad Deportiva Bilbao Vigo: Racing de Vigo Portugal: Lisboa: Atlético Clube de Lisboa and União Lisboeta Porto: Sociedade Desportiva Portuense and Associação Académica de Porto Braga: Futebol Clube Vitória de Braga and Grupo Desportivo de Braga Funchal: Madeira Clube de Futebol Coimbra: Sporting de Coimbra Setúbal: Clube de Futebol Sadino Faro: Clube Desportivo Formosa You can find the club's locations in the followig map: In the posts I'll be alternating between Spanish and Portuguese clubs, providing a bit of background for each one.
  7. Welcome everyone to the California Professional Soccer League or CALPROSOL! I’ve been working on this project for over a year now, but I’m very slow and meticulous, so you may have already seen state-based leagues on the boards. Nevertheless, I’m excited to present these concepts to you and get some feedback. This fictitious league features 40 of the premier clubs in California. Many soccer clubs existed in California in the late 19th and 20th centuries, but they mostly played independent exhibitions. In 1935, 10 of the top clubs organized to form “The California League” or “La Liga California”. Expansions began after World War II in 1948 as the state and national economies began to grow. Today, the 40 CALPROSOL teams make up one of the largest and most profitable soccer leagues in the world. Below you will find some helpful information regarding the league history, season format, and aesthetic standards. The existing season format was introduced in 1988 as a way to reward teams for more complete seasons as well as give every team a chance to win the California Cup. Concepts are coming soon, just bear with me! I have a lot planned for this project, but for now, you will just see club identities and kits from the 2015-16 season. Here are some of the other things I hope to complete eventually: Kits for future seasons Goalkeeper kits Simulated seasons on Football Manager or something similar Stadium renderings (perhaps SketchUp or Revit, but probably not) Training gear, fan gear (scarves, shirts, hats and the like) Historical kits You are more than welcome to give C&C, but I can’t guarantee I'll use it. You understand, right? Without further ado, let’s get started! TL;DR – I’m going to make soccer concepts, I hope you like them.
  8. Love making soccer badges so I figured I would take a few stabs at MLS logos. Montreal's logo is one I have messed with before, but I did not take my last design into consideration with this one. I kept the basic elements, like the 4 stars, fleur, and traditional stripes. My goal was to give them a clean look. Let me know what you think. Also, what American Soccer logos do you think could be improved, I would love some ideas. Thanks!
  9. Created a soccer concept for San Diego MLS bid, San Diego Football Club. Shout out to @Xamboni for helping with some of the mockup renderings and @raysox for his jersey template. Please let me know what you guys think. Im more than happy to tweak/fix anything as I know it's not perfect. Thanks in advance. Also once I finalize logo/jersey etc I will look to create a media guide.
  10. It's been a while since I posted a concept. My last American soccer league did not go as well as I had planned. So I've switched gears from computer designed to hand drawn. I started to do this all the way back in July and have worked on it off and on since then. The United States Soccer League(USSL) and Canadian Soccer League (CSL) USSL So way back in 1902 6 clubs from the East coast and Midwest. Since then it has expanded to 75 teams an three tiers. Each state has at least 1 team plus Washington DC and Puerto Rico. CSL Established in 1971 with 6 teams across Canada, and now has twenty teams. Each providence and territory has at least 1 team. This is just like any other soccer league with regulations and promotions in the USSL. CSL is more MLS format with the same 20 teams each year. See the league rules here: (not completely finished yet) https://docs.google.com/document/d/14ndiQfsGJJM-iI9UaHcMU7QgyM5riBzH6aMvy4oP6PU/pub American aspects: Playoffs to determine champion, draft, free agents, trades, etc. European aspects: points system, regulation/promotion, etc. One major thing though: Soccer is the only major sport in the world. No NFL, MLB, NBA, or NHL. Volleyball and other similar sports continue, but all of the major athletes play in this league(i.e. Steph Curry, Mike Trout, Sidney Crosby, Antonio Brown, etc.) League Logos: First team to come soon!
  11. I’ve been away from the boards for a while, but I’ve still been looking at other soccer concepts for ideas. In about late-July I decided to revive it, but instead of building off of what I already had, I decided to go back to square one. I made the league brand new and doubled the teams to a whopping 48. So this is the biggest project design related I have ever done, and like I said before, I’ve been working on it (drawing up ideas, writing backstories, designing kits and crests) since about late-July. I hope you all enjoy this mammoth of a project and please don’t shy from C&C. I can take it. League Backstory: The Floridian Premier League was founded in 1940 to give an southern counterpart to the thriving American soccer leagues in states like California, Texas, and New York. It’s immediate success brought it to the same level as these other leagues and it has been a farm for successful play domestically with other state league sides. It is composed of 48 teams, the most sides of any league in America. 8 of those teams get relegated, and 7 of them go to the American Champions League. Its most successful club domestically is International Gardens, and its most successful club nationally is Lauderdale Athletic. Team List: Athletic Club Boca Biscayne Athletic Soccer Club Brevard Brevard Rockets Soccer Club Buena Vista United Cascades Soccer Club Clearwater Soccer Club Daytona Racing Club Soccer Club Deerfield Deportivo Miami Fort Brooke Soccer Club Soccer Club Fort Myers Freedom Tower Soccer Club Gateway Soccer Club Gold Coast Diamonds Gulf Shore Athletic Harbor City Soccer Club Hillsborough City Soccer Club Homestead City Soccer Club International Gardens Soccer Club Islanders Soccer Club Keys United Soccer Club Lakeland Swans Soccer Club Lauderdale Athletic Club Lighthouse United Soccer Club Locomotive Gainesville Menéndez Club de Futbol Miramar Club Deportivo Nautica Soccer Club Ocala Riders Soccer Club Orange County Soccer Club Panama City Soccer Club Paradise Soccer Club Palm Beach Maritime Pembroke Rovers Soccer Club Progress United Real Palmas Club de Futbol Reeves Soccer Club River City Soccer Club San Agustín 1565 Sporting Pensacola Springs United Soccer Club St. Johns Brigade St. Lucie Union Sunshine City Soccer Club Tampa Bay United Volucres Soccer Club Ybor City Soccer Club I’m gonna do a similar thing to TheGiantsFan where he has a famous person from that city represent the name on the shirt, and you have to guess it. In this concept I’ll post a league table, and at the end I’ll group the crests and home and away kits together to get a big idea of what the league looks like altogether. I’ll be posting the teams alphabetically and about one per day, maybe more. Anyways here's the first club...
  12. Hello everyone! First I wanted to introduce myself, I'm PascalHugo and I am a designer. I wanted to create a football series, sorry soccer, across the Europe and maybe the world... So let's start this! ( Yeah yeah I know, I try inspiration by Berlin Wall and Lafarge) DEUTSCHE FUßBALL LIGA The Deutsche Fußball Liga was founded in 1960, after the DFB and the DDR decided to create an unique championship for Germany. It's a merger of several regional championship across the two Germany. It was one of the Top 5 championship in Europe (England, Spain, Germany, Italy and France) and it's most unpredictable of all. There are 20 clubs in the Deutsch Fußball Liga . During the course of a season (from August to May) each club plays the others twice (a double round-robin system), once at their home stadium and once at that of their opponents, for a total of 38 games.
  13. Well, the Sounders lift the MLS Cup, and its time to look to the next season. So what to expect? Will the NASL survive? Will the USL take over D2? Will Seattle fans be incredibly insufferable? Will the Cosmos ever pay all those players and staffers their back wages?
  14. This summer is huge for international soccer. Both the Copa America and UEFA European Championships are happening at the same time. In the last few weeks, more and more teams have been releasing their kits. Nike has been highlighted by mismatching sleeves, and a muscle vent design. Adidas moved their stripes to the under arm, which is a big break from their traditional sleeve stripes. I took it upon myself to tool with my soccer template to fit these new jersey cuts, hoping that the good designers that download it will make something that doesn't look like hot garbage. Also shout out to my girlfriend for creating her concept for the Washington Watermelons on my Adidas template. To test it out, I did two quick concepts. The first is my USA Soccer one on my Nike template. The new ones have mismatching pattern sleeves. The home is white, and the road is black. It's a mess. On my white, I did head to toe white, with blue accents, and a red V just because traditional looks are good for home kits. The clash kit is a red and blue half kit with a diamond gradient to purple in the middle. To test the Chelsea kit, I went pretty simple. The blue top has dark and light pinstripes, that change color on a diagonal line. Since I'm a giver, and here are the links to download. Nike template (AI and SVG) Adidas Template (AI and SVG) Also, check out my good pal Doug's new website Mockup Arena. Free professional templates for everyone! I want to do a Puma one if anyone can find HD pictures of their Euro kits.
  15. Alright, so. Last year when I was still in high school, this guy decided that he wanted to join the Cascadian independence movement. For those unfamiliar, Cascadia is a hypothetical nation typically composed of Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, although borders vary. They have a pretty sweet flag, and you'll see it around the Pacific Northwest fairly frequently, but it's mostly a symbol of regional pride, rather than an expression of secessionist spirit. However, there are some (like the guy at my school) who genuinely do want Cascadia to become a sovereign nation. So I got to talking with my bud Griffin about how if Cascadia were to become a country, we'd love it if they had soccer leagues structured like Europe's countries. The result is the Cascadian Premier League, and to a more limited extend Cascadian Leagues 1 and 2, and the Cascadian Football Association–the governing body of soccer in Cascadia. It's structured like this: 20 teams in the CPL, with the bottom 3 being relegated to League 1. We're up in the air on if there would be playoffs or not to determine a champion. The top 2 teams from League 1 are automatically promoted, and the next 4 play for the last promotion spot. Just as in the CPL, in League 1 the bottom 3 are relegated, with the top 2 teams of League 2 promoted directly, and the third spot going to the winner of a 4-team playoff. There are also a few non-league teams scattered about. The other day I finished designing the CPL, so I'll now be releasing teams fairly steadily. If you guys have C+C that is welcomed, but it might take a while for me to make adjustments. Is this whole project unrealistic? Of course. A sustainable league system? Not at all. But it's me and Griffin's little dream of what the ideal situation would be if Cascadia were to become a country. Some teams are pre-existing, like the Timbers, Sounders, and Whitecaps, others would be connected to other sports teams as if they were truly a "club," and some are entirely new. As for the thought process behind each of the logos: The CFA logo is a soccer ball with a center shape made up of 6 circles. 2 sections are blue, 2 are white, 2 are green–each representing one of the states that make up Cascadia, with the colors matching those of the flag. The CPL logo is a stylized map of BC, Washington, and Oregon, with chevrons running through them to symbolize the forests of the Northwest and the Cascade Range of mountains. I've taken inspiration from raysox's Yakball and APL series, as well as pcgd's America League, all of which are amazing series both in concept and execution. I'm not nearly as good as either of those guys, but they're what I'm striving for, and I hope you'll join me as I take you through Cascadia's soccer system.

  16. Hi everyone -- had a good time making my 2017 MLS series, so now I'm going to start a similar series for 2018! Once again I'm using the SS Kits template from the Football Manager community, just this time I'm swapping homes/aways from my 2017 series, of course. Also, just to keep things fresh, I'm going to go in reverse order from the last series and work my way backwards through each conference alphabetically. Also will do full sets for LAFC and Miami when I get to those, though I suppose I'll have to design my own Miami badge, eek! EAST: Atlanta United / Chicago Fire / Columbus Crew / DC United / Miami / Montreal Impact / New England Revolution / New York City FC / New York Red Bulls / Orlando City / Philadelphia Union / Toronto FC WEST: Colorado Rapids / FC Dallas / Houston Dynamo / LA Galaxy / Los Angeles FC / Minnesota United / Portland Timbers / Real Salt Lake / San Jose Earthquakes / Seattle Sounders / Sporting Kansas City / Vancouver Whitecaps
  17. Sports has been a part of my life since the beginning. One of my biggest interests in design is sports identities. When I was young I was often drawing a team logo, colouring in a jersey or creating my own versions. In mid–2016 I took on a 70 day challenge for a project I was doing in school. I knew this would be tough to handle so I decided the make it more suitable to my interest. The goal of this challenge was to redesign an existing sports logo every day for 70 days. Each logo redesign involved preliminary research about the team/city, sketching out all my ideas on paper, executing a digital version through Illustrator. I ended up creating a booklet with small rationales for my thinking, design choices and overall thoughts on the project. Sportslogos.net was a place I went to every day to discover new teams to redesign.
  18. Hopefully this is just a novelty and not an omen. http://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/soccer/argentinian-club-bids-for-world-record-with-eye-popping-50-sponsor-jersey/ar-AAmJkzh?li=BBnba9I
  19. Around two years ago I created a Norwich City F.C. logo redesign in a minimalist style. It wasn't very strong and I didn't put much effort into. So, for an assignment in my Corporate Design class we had to redesign an existing brand. I saw this as a great opportunity to reimagine what I did back in 2015. I developed a custom typeface based off the angles used in the brand elements. The pattern was inspired by panels on a standard soccer ball and mesh found in a soccer net. It's a lot of big images so I'll post the main ones here. You can view the full project on my portfolio website or Behance
  20. Any feedback is welcomed!
  21. Hey everyone, I've been following the forum for a long time, and finally I decided to present you my own kit concepts. I will be designing a home and an away kit for existing and future MLS teams. I won't be following a certain order, but I will be sure that all kits are done. I might also include third kits for some teams. I hope you guys will like the concepts I will be posting So, without further ado, here are the kits for Chicago Fire: On the home kit, I was inspired by the home kit worn between 2000 and 2002. I know it looks like the current one, but I think that the navy stripe on the bottom completes the look. The cuffs and the socks were also designed to be consistent with the stripes on the middle. I wanted to integrate Chicago's flag into the away kit, so I was inspired by the away kit Uruguay wore in this year's Copa America. But, then I realized that if a player tucked in his shirt, the flag wouldn't be seen completely. So, I decided to do what Everton did with their home kit last season, and made the top portion of the shorts white and raised the flag a little bit to ensure that all players on the pitch have the same look.
  22. Try my crack at this one more time with the idea that there is a stronger chance MLS is coming to SD after chargers bolted! No pun intended. Old Thread
  23. Yesterday I saw that the Sioux Falls Thunder FC's logo was put on the mothership. I immediatly thought "that needs to go!" So I thought I'd try my hand at making a soccer crest for them. I had several ideas in my head and whittled them all down to what I have so far. I'm thinking of scrapping that bolt all together and trying to give image to the city name Sioux (arrowhead) Falls (directional stripes that appear to waterfall over an edge). What I need help with is knowing if I'm going in a good direction for this crest or do I need to scrap this and look in another direction? Please add your thoughts. Current: Concept:
  24. Not sure how far I'm gonna go with this series, I'm just gonna play it by ear and if anyone comes up with suggestions for clubs. The original idea came when I was asked to sign up a team for a friends league in PES. The team I had in mind was based off of the show Courage The Cowardly Dog, and was named the Nowhere Brave Soon afterward, I got back into watching old episodes of Space Ghost Coast to Coast and, along with the passing of the voice actor of Zorak & Moltar, I felt like attempting a series out of this concept. The idea for this crest was to base it off the color scheme & three variations of the Space Ghost logos that I have been familiar with. This logo, I'm still not fully satisfied with. Here's what I currently have for Ghost Planet FC. If there are any suggestions for future clubs or critiques for either of these two, especially the latter, I would greatly appreciate it!
  25. With this year's set of jerseys, the people at Nike Soccer changed their template. This would have been all well and good, but their new template seems to be restricting their creative process. They're kinda going through the motions with new kits and just slapping colors onto templates and calling it a day. Lazy designs such as the similarities of the England and US kits would have never happened before the new template. The inventiveness and crisp aesthetic that used to be there in every Nike design is pretty much gone. I will be designing jerseys from teams around the world, from MLS to Europe to Africa, club or national teams. I want to reignite that inventiveness, but do it with the template they have now. I want to show that the template doesn't have to constrict the creativity and uniqueness of each jersey. Designed Teams Portland Timbers VfB Stuttgart Los Angeles FC German National Team Derby County FC Augsburg US National Team Xolos de Tijuana What better team to start with than Oregon's own Portland Timbers? I really like the chevron pattern that Portland used on their current home uniform. It is unique, reflects a part of their brand that is really special, and executed pretty well. I wanted to take the chevron idea to a different level and put that Nike spin on it. I wanted to give the Timbers an iconic look that they could rock for a long time to come. The main focus of the kit is the jersey. The big chevron stripe in the middle is reminiscent of the current jersey, but is paired with thinner chevrons up and down the jersey. The shoulder yokes don't restrict the design, but instead give it more depth and a unique dynamic. The shorts are simple white with a green stripe, and the socks are equally as simple. C&C is much appreciated, as this is my first post. Also feel free to recommend other clubs and national teams to redesign below. Thanks!
