  1. College Football Team Cougars concept

    I made this a while back since I like looking at college football logos. I always wanted to make a good cougar logo. One that would say yeah we know tons of ways to show our ferocity. Cougars have the perfect size and agility to kill. I want to build a detailed website of this university I created for a school project. This is their sports team logo I created. The Southern Ohio University Cougars. I didn't copy any logos, but Houston cougars looks a bit similar. I made a lot of different changes to make it my own. Near the bottom of the state there are hills so I was thinking of cougars being in that area. I used a gold and navy although their 3rd color is brown. The third color helps separate from looking like PITT or Navy. I like to think of tension with being close to Marshall so I picked Huntington as the nearby town. I would make the school 20 minutes away on the Ohio side. An explanation say for the made up future Huntington is much bigger and needs a university to keep fostering growth. School Name: Southern Ohio University Nickname: SOU (not zou) Mascot: Cougars Colors: Dark Navy Blue, Gold-like, light Brown, White Location: 20 Minutes north of Huntington Division: I (when good) Conference: ACC(when able to compete lol) Rival: Marshall Tell me what you think. I am trying to design other logos for the school to add to my website I'm making.
  2. Detroit Tigers

    A couple years ago, I decided to take a stab at the NY-Penn League's Connecticut Tigers after they introduced mascot logos that looked like they'd come out of a 30s Mickey Mouse cartoon (and I say that in a good way). The road jersey in that concept was basically the Sparky Anderson-era grays, but with CONNECTICUT instead of DETROIT on the front. A few years removed, and I've decided I wanted to see what the big leaguers would look like in a similar set. First, the home and away... Like I'd done with the CT Tigers, the home whites are tweaked more than anything: orange trim is added to the D and lettering, and the tiger head appears as a left sleeve patch. Orange trim is also added to the cap D. The grays take their cues from the 80s, with orange-white-navy cuffs and pants striping, and eliminating the white outlines and front number. The socks also now have orange stripes. There is a home alternate, basically a white version of the grays, the chief difference being the Tigers script instead of Detroit. For the hell of it, I included a slightly toned down version of the CT set's striped alternate-most of the jersey stripes blend in, with only two remaining navy, fewer stripes on the cap, and the pants are still navy, but with more normal looking striping that wouldn't be pooh-poohed as something more befitting the Astros. But wait, there's more! In the next post, a second variant!
  3. 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!
  4. Good morning! I'm back with the second installment in my short MLB Rivalry Face-off series, inspired by @Discrimihater's series. Today I tackle the Detroit Tigers & Pittsburgh Pirates. Compared to my Padres & Mariners concepts, I got a lot crazier with these designs, at least for the road sets. Let's start with the Tigers: The Tigers home is based on the current uniform of the Erie Seawolves, the Double-A affiliate of the Tigers who for ten years were an affiliate of the Pirates. Ironically, they've kept their pirated-themed identity with a Jolly Roger flag and a wolf with an eye patch for logos. I considered putting the Tigers in pinstripes as that was what the Seawolves wore for about eight seasons after becoming Detroit's affiliate, but I was worried it would end up looking too much like the Yankees. I was reading that part of the Detroit/Pittsburgh rivalry stems from the rivalry between their NHL teams, so Detroit's road set is loosely based on the 1926 Detroit Red Wings uniform, which featured a "D" similar to the Tigers' Old English 'D' logo. Next up are the Pirates: As Q would say, "Now this, I'm particularly proud of." The Pirates and Tigers met once in the World Series in 1909, so the Pirates home set is based on their uniform from that year, updated with their classic color scheme. The road set is based on the Pittsburgh Penguins road uniform from the 1980s, back when they still wore Pirates colors, as opposed to the drab black and Vegas gold they use now. As always, C&C appreciated!
  5. 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.
  6. Tigers Logo

    I've been working on the below logo for a competition on a different forum. Here is the logo it's replacing: I've made a deliberate decision to darken the colours a bit as I think they will work better with the uniforms i'll design as part of the competitions. Have I upgraded, at the very least?
  7. One thing that bugs me about the tigers is that they don't have any Alternate jerseys (or haven't since the 90's) and they're current jerseys have nothing to do with the name Tigers so i made 2 jerseys,both are based off of throwbacks, that use the Tiger more. Hope you guys enjoy!
  8. Connecticut Tigers baseball

    Earlier in the year, the CT Tigers rolled out a couple mascot logos that look like something straight outta Steamboat Willie. Naturally, I felt them concept worthy. Home and Away Didn't stray too far from RL for the homes, though I decided to take a stab at including a bit of orange. The grays are based on the 70s-80s Detroit roads. Alternate and BP The BP is based on an old Detroit BP jersey that was posted here once, and an Erie Seawolves concept (I forget his CCSLC handle, but I know who posted it) inspired the striped jersey. I simply expanded the theme to a probably oddball level.
  9. Los Angeles Tar Tigers

    Hey guys, this is a kind of old concept I made for a minor league baseball team, but I never posted here. Im not really looking for critiques that much, but I figured some people may be interested to see it. The concept is based off of the La Brea tar pits and the saber tooth tigers that were trapped in them. The full project can be seen HERE. https://www.behance.net/gallery/12390015/LA-Tar-Tigers
  10. Madden Sacramento Tigers concept

    I can't actually enter the competition because i'm outside the US, but i'd started working on my entry so I thought i'd share it here after seeing robo3687 do the same thing. I saw tigers and decided to adapt a tiger logo i'd been working on for a while. I got a bit stuck with city and colours, so I just picked one from the list. I originally had the logo orange and black, but made it red to differentiate it from the Bengals. I'm definitely open to ideas when it comes to colours and choice of city. Uniforms to follow. I'm using the template they sent around as opposed to one of the user friendly ones I already had, so it's taking a bit of time. I'd love some feedback.
  11. Vintage LSU Logo

    I found an old vintage LSU basketball logo on a framed uniform in my boss' office. Just wanted to share and see if anyone has seen it or similar ones.
  12. Updated LSU Helmets

    College football has started again, and I was reminded again of how LSU's helmets don't match the rest of their logos, graphics, and even colors. I am sure they keep their helmet unchanged because of their tradition, and I am sure their fan base would go apoplectic with even slight modifications to their helmet. I have lived in either Central Ohio or Alabama almost all of my life, so I understand college football fans of historic programs and their value of traditions. That being said, what I do not like is when the athletic department changes logos and graphics without messing with the helmets. I am not really a big fan of LSU's colors and logos, but they should at least have helmets that use fonts, logos, and colors that the school currently uses. Currently, the football helmet doesn't even match the football jerseys. If the script and logo on the helmet are so timeless, they would still be using the logo and font elsewhere. Here is their current design: As I said earlier, my problem is not so much with the actual design (even though I personally am not a fan), it is that it no longer matches what the rest of their athletic department looks like. In fact, the purple on the helmet doesn't match the purple on their jerseys. I think that LSU should keep their helmet design the same to appease the fan base, but they should use the font that they use in their end zones and the school's main tiger logo. So here is my suggestion: I have taken the script from their end zone and changed the tiger decal. In addition I have made their face masks and stripes the official LSU purple so that it matches their jerseys. I think that these would be small enough changes to respect tradition and keep a fan base somewhat mollified, yet give LSU a design that fits with the rest of their look. Personally, I would like for them to have a more major redesign, but I doubt that would happen. (Their white helmets with gold trim from a year or two ago were a nice upgrade.) For fun I decided to do some alternate helmets. This one uses the eye from their midfield. I think it would be used one time a season for a special game. I saw that LSU recently trademarked a new logo. I think that they are mainly using it as a small logo on polo shirts, etc. (I could be wrong), but I like it and put it on a helmet that would be quite different. I also took just the head from the previous logo and tried that. (I was dealing with a low-quality image, so it isn't very crisp.)
  13. Detroit Tigers Concept

    After receiving positive feedback from my update to Detroit's road set, I decided to expand this into an entire Tigers refresh. Let's get to the changes I've made and the reasons behind them: Navy has been darkened. Gives a crisper feel in contrast to the orange. The orange is a bit bolder as well, to serve as a more outstanding accent color specifically in the absence of white on the traditional road set. The home "D" on the jersey now matches the "D" on the cap. I felt this was a necessary change to maintain uniformity throughout the identity. Both road jerseys feature piping around the sleeve cuff and "V" neck, in contrast to the current piping down the center. I felt this showed a genuine contrast between the home and road sets, but not enough to break the uniformity of the entire identity. White has been eliminated from the primary road set. I never liked the "double stroke" look around the wordmark, nameplate and numerals on the current roads. It looks outdated and crowded. A simpler navy with orange stroke shows a modern, clean, respectful update to one of the league's most revered ball clubs. I've added a road alternate set, for use during away games only. The Tigers' home whites are the only jerseys to be worn at Comerica Field, to maintain the club's traditional appearance. The navy roads may be worn on Friday or Sunday road contests. This navy jersey is a recoloration of the updated roads, featuring orange piping on the sleeves and neck. All three jerseys feature no sleeve artwork. This is to further maintain the cleanliness of the entire identity, and leave room for patches dedicated to special occasions. That about does it! I'd love to hear feedback from you all. Thanks! (Edit: I noticed I accidentally omitted the MLB logo on the back of the jerseys. Please ignore that small note.)
  14. Tennessee State Tiger Rebrand

    IMO I have always thought that the TSU logo was the worst logo in all of Division 1 athletics. So I figured why not give it a try and see if I can do better (not sure if I did). I wanted to go with a less detailed version of a tiger because the current looks like clip art. And I wanted to do something different with the "TSU" word mark. Any C&C would be great still got a ways to go with this one.
