  1. 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 .
  2. The sunny state of Florida is home to numerous athletic clubs. They have nine professional clubs in the Big Four leagues of North America. I noticed that every team has a crappy uniform component. Breaking it down further; In the NFL, we have three teams from different parts of the state. The Miami Dolphins have questionable colour choices (navy?) and a bland uniform for a team called the Dolphins. The Buccaneers have awful numbers, weird colour choices, and an odd combo of stripes and piping. The Jaguars have a strong colour combo but terrible uniforms. In the NBA, we have the Heat and the Magic. The Heat aren't that bad but a couple tweaks could be greatly beneficial. The Magic have gone in the opposite direction of where they should be headed. The NHL provides some of the best uniforms out of the bunch. The Florida redesign was so much better than their last set, but a few tweaks could knock it out of the park. The Lightning have another boring set, despite another inspiring name. The MLB fields two of the last teams. The Marlins have such a great colour combo (minus black) and have so much potential, but it has been wasted. The Rays are close to a homer of a set, but tweaks should fix the problems. My last project ended eight months ago. I haven't made a concept of any kind in over half a year, so bear with me. Let's begin with the Dolphins. I love the throwbacks that the Dolphins have. I think it's a consensus that they should go back to those full time. Here's the full set. The home set features a teal top and white pants with their old logo, because it's great. The road set is a whiteout because I thought it looked good and the colours really stand out. Maybe an unpopular opinion, but I loved the Colour Rush jerseys from this year. I used white pants and socks to balance the colours a little better. I have returned at last. Leave C and C!
  3. Floridian Premier League (Derby Posters)

    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 Palm Beach Maritime Panama City Soccer Club Paradise Soccer Club 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...

  5. Tampa Lightning Rebrand

    So I was thinking about this redesign for all the schools I've been to in my life I might do and my elementary school was royal and on the verge of being volt yellow and maybe those colors might look good on the Tampa Bay Lightning, is what was going on in my head. So here the project. TAMPA LIGHTNING REBRAND BY ECUFAN25 Logo: Uniforms:
  6. Back again guys. This time working with the Tampa Bay Lightning. I could never tell if I liked the TB jerseys. I was always on the fence. I love the incorporation of black into their color schemes so I tried to combine some of my favorite elements of past Tampa jerseys. I also wanted to try to make something different and kind of unique (hence the yoke design) Let me know what you think!
  7. Tampa Bay Lightning Concept

    Hey all. I've been browsing the forums for quite a while, but I haven't posted any concepts until now. While I do have a plan for a larger series of concepts in the works, I figured that it'd be beneficial for me to sort of get my feet wet, so to speak. With all that out of the way, allow me get to the concept itself. The Tampa Bay Lightning are interesting case to be certain. They've had all of two identities in their short tenure in the NHL. Most people on here aren't huge fans of their current look, calling it a cross between the Maple Leafs and Red Wings. With all the negativity, I thought to myself, "Why haven't more people taken a crack at making a new Lightning identity?" I quickly found out the answer to this question - it ain't easy to do. I myself think that their current look is decent, but it could certainly be improved. However, I'm not a big fan of their past look either, so that's out of the question as well. So, what I did was a pseudo-combination of the two identities with some extra touches here and there. What's in from the old set? Mostly the colors. Hawaiian blue is back, and black is too - well, somewhat. I substituted the black with a very dark navy color (I haven't thought of a "name" for it yet but I'll look further into it). What's in from the new look? The shape of the crest mostly. I originally tried to make something that was a bit of a cross between the current logo and what the Canes use currently, but that didn't go over so well. So I took inspiration from the current shoulder patch and modeled it closer to that. And what's new? Plenty. For starters, a new lightning bolt takes center stage, more simplified than the other ones. I took a little inspiration from the Flash logo (this one) and the Screw Attack (see here). Also added is a new color, electric blue. This would be used as a highlight color only, as I don't think you'd want to see a team go out on the ice in that color. My thought process was that if you have a team named the Lightning, you should have a little something that pops, and electric blue looked good in my head. It's worth noting that the colors were the first thing I came up with for this concept. Beyond that, there's not much to say. I put it in a roundel and gave it colors. If anything, this is more of an independent idea than a combination of eras. I do plan on tweaking this many more times in the following couple days (though not this weekend, as my family will be visiting), as it is still very much a work in progress. That being said, I would LOVE to get your thoughts on this. Good? Bad? Step in the right/wrong direction? Marketing name for the dark navy? Please, fire away. One thing that I do want to know is the official Pantone color for the Hawaiian blue, but I plan on contacting Colorwerx about that one sometime soon. If you know by chance, let me know and I'll adjust it. As of now, I'm not sure if I'm going to create all the bells and whistles for this yet - alternate logos, uniforms, marketing shenanigans, et al. I do have some ideas for an alternate logo that would most likely be the shoulder patch, but that's a ways down the road. Just post some C&C and I will absolutely listen to all of it and take it into consideration. Thanks for taking a look!
  8. Who wants an MLB team?

    No I'm not Regis Philbin, but let's play anyway. We start off with this gem out of Tampa. http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/10/25/report-rays-owner-stuart-sternberg-has-discussed-moving-the-team-to-montreal/
  9. Tampa Rays Rebrand

    This is a concept I've been working on rebranding the Tampa Bay Rays as the Tampa Rays. The reason behind the name change is that I've never been too big on naming a team after a body of water/region and I personally think Tampa Rays sounds better. Not too much to say about the logos/unis themselves, I was just really trying to step away from the generic identity the Rays currently use and design something that would be unique in the MLB. I'd love to get everyone's constructive criticism on the design.
  10. i usually dont get into the "fixing the latest uniform release" thing but i couldnt resist taking a stab at the Bucs. they had one of my favorite logos and uniforms in NFL history and i was very disappointed with the Nike-trash they got. i felt like they went overboard (pirate pun!) with the primary logo, adding in some unnecessary details and worst of all killed the waving, curling action of the flag. i probably drew around 20 different swords before landing on this design and i think i finally got it where it needs to be. For the word mark i just wanted a better font that still had a pirate personality. i went with a white-on-black mark to reflect the skull and swords in the flag. the red is about the same, its 200 C (think Ohio State) and the pewter is 10398 C, which is a metallic swatch that is brighter and with more silver than their current. it's hard to replicate exactly in RGB color space, but i think i've done a decent job here. favorite final sword designs it just happened that the word mark filled the end zones really well and i liked the big bold look of this. usually i'll experiment with 4 or 5 field designs but this was the first i came up with and decided thats cool enough. this template dosent show exactly what i imagine the helmet looking like. i really want a satin finish on the helmet with a silver (NOT chrome) face mask. but i love the idea of a big red flag on the side screaming into battle. its a logo that needs to be oversized. this shows the helmet more to my liking. my first idea for the jersey was to do stripes that looked like the rips in the flag of the logo, not too different from the Texans design, but then got the idea to do a ship's sail (a much simpler version of the pirate ship) on the sleeves. i wanted nothing to do with that tangerine orange and left it out of the identity completely except in the football of the logo. the numbers on the home jersey are silver (NOT chrome). the road jersey would feature a silver outlined number. the number font i felt didnt have to be anything special, because of how i had treated it with the silver. i just wanted a bold badass football font. the pants stripe just comes from the idea of a sword blade, the red carefully placed to resemble blood on the edge. not sure if the NFL would go for that or not, but i think its pretty cool. there is quite a bit going on in the uniform from helmet to pants so when it came to the socks i just wanted to try something very simple, yet do something new that the NFL has never seen before.
  11. Here is a rough concept for a TB Buccaneers black and gold uniform. This is just a rough design, just inform me if you like the idea or not.
