  1. Hey everyone, I'm back at it again. I did a concept a few years ago that I really enjoyed and I've been tinkering with it again. I hope this time the colors come through the way I've intended. Last time I couldn't get the colors the way I wanted due to my monitor being shoddy. A little back story here, I'm not trying to totally re-brand the team but take what they currently wear and modify what I and others see as problems with their current look. The logo's are pretty much the same as before with some minor tweaks. They are a mash up of their current and former logos, taking the elements from both that I really liked. I really do like Tampa's current look for the most part, I think the balance between colors really works all though I do prefer a little more orange. One huge fix is the number font. For this concept I went with a slightly modified version of the Spokane Empire's number font. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy and C+C is always welcome.

  2. Tampa Bay Lightning Tweak

    I've been messing around in NHL18 working on a custom league to post on the boards and as a break I decided to fix my favorite team (and hopefully future Stanley Cup Champion), the Tampa Bay Lightning. I like blue being the primary color but I'm sick to high heaven of the scrimmage jokes when they play Toronto. So black returns in a fairly prominent way
  3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers refresh

    Happy 2018! Here's to being more active on the boards this year and we're gonna start it off with an attempt to fix my favorite NFL team: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The goal was to take the best parts of all three eras of Buccaneers uniforms and synthesize them to a modern look that could stand the test of time. Helmet Moving the Bucs back to a white shell opens up the throwbacks as an alt uniform which ,while not particularly my favorite thing, are an undeniable fan favorite. One of my favorite things about the new uniforms is the bigger flag on the helmets but I would like to see the Bucs to it even more and really turn the helmet into the flag flying forward. I tried at first to have a red shell with the Skull and Sabers only but I didn't like it near as much as the shape the flag makes across the side blown up. I played with black, red, orange, white and pewter facemasks but I like the chrome masks the best. Eras Taken: 70s Shell, 10s mask and huge logo Standard Uniforms (L-R, Top-Bottom: Standard Home, Alt Home, Color Rush, Standard Road, Alt Road) First obvious fix is no more dang alarm color numbers, but from the current era I keep the reflective chrome outlines on the numbers and the shoulders. The front comes to a point which is a holdover from when I planned to carry over the random bits of orange on the current uniforms. The ends of the Shoulders are red with striping meant to evoke the motion of a sword. It starts as traditional striping across the back inspired by the 70s set and moves to a point on the front. This replaces the random bits of orange on the current fronts. A common pant fix for Bucs is to make a saber like stripe along the side. I started out with a style of sword pulled straight from the logo but I didn't like how pewter touching chrome looked even with the tips in red. This morphed to taking the shoulder end striping and putting it on the pants. Eras Taken: 70s sleeve striping and helmet shell, 00s numbers color order, 10s chrome facemask, chrome reflective numbers, shoulders Throwbacks It's the return of the Creamsicles. As I designed this I think what bugged me about the Creamsicles (besides the culture of losing associated with them) is that Bay Orange is really overpowering on that set but I believe the Blood Red on the tips and white shoulders tops cuts that a bit. The reflective bits on the number come off to really send home the throwback look but the striping remains the same to bring the look into the current era.
  4. NHL Outdoor Games Ideas

    This is Where I will post my concepts for potential Outdoor Games that I think the NHL should consider, and will even write mini proposals We start off with a crazy idea I has for a Florida outdoor game, a stadium series probably. First off, it would take place in Raymond James Stadium (the Bucs home), which in the winter can go down to as low as 40 F, perfect to sustain ice for a perfect amount of time. With some nice planning, this would not be much of a hassle. As to why to do this you ask? These two teams are very unknown and do not have any attention going to them. A NBCSN game and outdoor game in Florida would attract much press attention. Also although I do not agree with most southern market NHL teams, I feel that Tampa Bay has a very passionate fan base and does deserve this. Now for the aesthetics of it, the Florida Panthers whole theming would be around the sun and heat, as they do represent most of Florida and many of their logos do indeed. For this I made the Panthers uniforms have the rays of the sun on the bottom stripe as well as more red and yellow then usual. The Lightnings uniform have the grey color of storm clouds, using all 4 of their colors rather then just 2. For the actual presentation of the arena the arena would be set up with palm trees all around the outskirts similar Minnesota's pine tree display. There would be a small picture above the arena of a sun facing off against a storm, pushing against one another. This would be between the logos. When the Bolts come out lightning coils will activate as they walk in. When the Panthers walk in fire will erupt followed by gold-ish smoke. Worst case scenario it all melts. Also I feel its only appropriate to have both team goal horns go off. Any Ideas for the next one?
  5. As much as I love the new Bolts logo and uniforms, when they're placed next to the Maple Leafs it REALLY drives home how similar the two are. While some clamored for the old set I honestly didn't like the striping and I prefer Tampa Bay as a blue base team as opposed to a black base. Nevertheless, black and silver need to comeback to distinguish the Bolts from the Leafs and so here we are One of my biggest pain points with the old set is that too much black weighed down the uniform. This is alleviated by keeping the black to a minimum secondary and brightening the blue. (It's for this reason there are sleeves on the road whites but not on the home blues. The primary logo stays almost the exact same as far as proportion but you can see the how the brighter blue pops allowing the use of black without added weight. The existing wordmarks would carry over just with the new blue used. So Tampa Bay...ready to stop looking like you're in Ontario?
  6. NHL Crazy Outdoor Game

    This may sound crazy, however Florida would make a great place for an outdoor game, probably a stadium series game. The perfect place would be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers stadium (Raymond James Stadium). Tampa Bay can reach the temperature of nearly 32 F, a perfect temperature and can sustain ice long enough. This would be perfect for these two Florida teams, shedding much press attention on what would have otherwise been a fairly unnoticed event by them. The jersey were based off the old Tampa jerseys mashed together and were meant for Tampa only, however the Panthers looked too good in them to pass by. Generally the theme besides storm vs sun is retro jerseys. The arena would be set up with palm trees all around the outskirts similar Minnesota's pine tree display. There would be a small picture above the arena of a sun facing off against a storm, pushing against one another. This would be between the logos. When the Bolts come out lightning coils will activate as they walk in. When the Panthers walk in fire will erupt followed by gold-ish smoke. Worst case scenario it all melts .
  7. Not an unpopular opinion... I hate the current uniforms worn by Tampa Bay. Another not unpopular opinion... I feel the uniforms the Bucs wore from 97 to 13 were nearly perfect, and they were stupid to move away from them, especially for the nightmare they ended up with. However, as easy as it is to say "just switch back", I don't really think that's all that feasible. There are a number of reasons why it isn't really done, primarily IMO because it would just feel like an admission that the change was a huge mistake. It was, obviously, but I don't think a franchise would be willing to swallow their pride enough to simple own up to it. Most of the examples that come to mind of a team doing an about face to a "classic" look are like the Giants, the Jets... uniforms that are truly classic in the 40 to 50 year sense. To quickly switch away from a modern uniform to a fairly recent, almost as modern uniform seems unlikely. From a marketing standpoint, I'd think it would be easier for them to sell a return of the creamsicles, as a "classic return"... which I don't believe they'd be willing to do either. However... While thinking about it, another model came to mind... that being the 2009 San Francisco 49ers. In '96, they went with their modern update, which was well received at first, but aged very poorly. The darkened red, multiple logo placements, and unnecessary black accents were very "90's" and, especially since it replaced a beloved classic, it wasn't surprising to see the 9ers move back. But they didn't move back completely... The new uniform, as much as it's thought of as a return of the old, is actually a modern update of the old that owes a bit to the 90'd look as well. It's simplified, and the 90's logo, which is in the forefront of team marketing, is held over. In that vein, here's something similar for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Take the uniform everyone loves so much... ... add a few elements from the current uniform (logos, brighter red) Put it on a more modern template (which eliminates the black collar and cuffs), go with a seemingly more classic but still unique font... And I got this; Full disclosure, I actually prefer the older logos, both on the helmet and on the sleeves, but again, my thought was a way to return to a better look without fully abandoning the new one. Thoughts?
  8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers fix

    I took a break from my main series, MLB Organizational Tweaks, create a quick concept for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They currently have some problems with their set that I wanted to address. First off their number font is horrendous, so I used a modified block font similar to their super bowl winning look. I also lightened the shade of pewter because their darker shade is really drab and doesn't mix well with their bright red and orange. Their is only one logo used for the shoulder patch to remain consistent. Also the buccaneers wordmark is added above the front numbers. C&C is appreciated.

  10. Los Rayos de Havana

    With the US opening trade with Cuba could the team with the MLB's lowest attendance be moving south?

  12. Tampa Bay Lightning Logo Concept

    Trying to play with something I always thought would work for the Bolts. I like the secondary they have now, but I just thought this could be a tertiary, or if they ever make the secondary the primary. I tried to do my own bevel...but I kinda got stuck. So I'm providing two examples, one with the unfinished bevel and one without. Its still a work in progress. Let me know what you think, any advice, changes that need to be made. Thanks.
