  1. Updated 3/31: Elite 8 Complete/Final Four Set Elite 8 Complete/Final Four Set: First Four: On Off Sweet 16 Complete: First Four On First Four Off Round of 32 Complete: First Four On First Four Off Round of 64 Complete: First Four On First Four Off First Four Round of 64 with First Four off Release (3840x2160) A new year, a new theme and look. Info after the photo. - A clean look, optimized for larger, hopefully easier to read school/team name and overall record text. - Tournament Title in white and black trim, with an orange shadow - Round of 64 teams will have smaller logos than in last years first round. In addition, Round of 64 team records will be replaced with that Team's game score. - Round of 32 through the Elite Eight features a slightly smaller pod, but a more vertical logo. Above the divider will be the school name, and below will be the Team's game score. - Round of 32 through the Elite Eight orange end caps will be changed to the team's color once they advance. - The Final Four, black team pod with orange gradient trim. - National Championship matchup features black team pods with gold gradient trim. Note: The "First Games" are at the bottom center of the bracket, but may be covered by a app dock or other apps. I've turned on dock hiding and that fixes the issue. But once the First Four is complete, I'll remove the first four pods for a cleaner bracket. C&C: I thought about lightening the background, as it's a little darker here than I anticipated, then again it might just be the perfectionist in me.
  2. I recently caught interest in the CHL (Champions Hockey League), A tournament where the best clubs in Europe compete. I thought I would try to make a "European Super League". So I went and found 2 teams from the following leagues SHL, Liiga, Czech Extraliga, DEL, GET-ligaen and the Austrian Ice Hockey League. France and Denmark will get League National Teams where they select the best players of national origin from their country's leagues to represent at the ESL. So I present to you the 2016 European Super League. The Stars on the crest represent the founding countries (Austria, Czechia, Denmark, France, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland) Team Pools All The Team Jerseys will be released another day. C&C is always appreciated, thank you.
  3. This apparently happened last year but I just stumbled upon it today. The 2015 ACC Women's Basketball Tournament in Greensboro logo looks extremely similar to a logo of my own that I created two years ago (one year prior to the 2015 ACC tournaments) for a former assistant coach at St. Joe's who was planning to start his own youth basketball camp called "School of Hoops". I'm not surprised anymore to see work stolen/plagiarized from me or other honest designers out there, since this is definitely not the first time this has happened to me, but the reason this feels different is that I am kind of surprised that one of the largest conferences in the country would be stooped by whoever they contracted to design this. I know the SEC goes to the big guys like Joe Bosack or TJ Harley for their tournament logos which would more or less guarantee the authenticity of each logo created. The composition of the logos is really nothing unique or groundbreaking. I can't claim ownership to the idea of words arched/over under a ball of some kind and a shield since there are probably plenty of other logos out there with similar traits and we are all inspired by what's been done even if it is subconsciously, but when looking at my logo side by side with the ACC logo, there is no doubt in my mind that the ACC logo is just an alteration of what I started since every bit of line work is identical. I overlapped the ACC logo on top of mine and it is identical. The identical highlighting and line work on the ball is what struck me the most. I don't really intend to pursue this since it'd just be a useless headache, but I was wondering if anyone had info on who the ACC hired to 'design' this particular 2015 women's tourney logo. I broke down the basic similarities in the image below. I saw the logo still in use on the ACC's website as well as in videos of the actual games. http://www.theacc.com/page/2015-womens-basketball-tournament-history https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_ACC_Women%27s_Basketball_Tournament
  4. NBA uni set tournament

    Would anyone be interested in putting together an NCAA-style 32- or 64-item tournament of NBA uniforms for the site to vote on? I'd be interested to see which ones advanced in certain matchups. We'd need classics like the Shaq-era Magic; "Irish Rainbow" Bucks; MJ Bulls; "Rainbow Skyline" Nuggets; Baby Blue Kings; blue-and-green Hawks (and/or Pac Man-era Hawks); 1974-81 Cavs; Mourning-era Hornets and Heat (what was it about him and good uniforms?); original Grizzlies and Raptors; 1980s and/or 1990s Pacers; and many, many more. I'd think every team could have at least one representation, especially if we did 64 sets.
  5. It’s back!! Here we go with another year of March Madness. I plan to update on Friday night and Sunday night and will try to include scores. Enjoy!! Edit 3/18: Fixed a regional site error. 2016 NCAA Tournament Bracket: Championship Final Four Elite 8 Sweet 16!! Round 2 Round 1 Size: 3840x2160
  6. Best Uniform Tournament

    Vote for your top 4. Voting ends next Wednesday at 6:00 PM ET
  7. Introducing the World Football Club Alliance. Every four years, the top two clubs from the countries participating in the World Cup are selected to compete in a March Madness-style tournament. No group stages. Just single elimination to determine the best club team in the world. The host country is selected from those participating. This years tournament will be held in Greece, with the championship taking place at the Athens Olympic Stadium. Background on the project: At some point long ago I realized how little I knew about clubs teams outside the MLS and the big 3 leagues in Europe. So I set out to learn more about the lesser-known teamsand subsequently work on concepts for them. Because I had the idea at least a year ago, I have gone through several bracket iterations. But with the World Cup having taken place last year, NCAA March Madness just finished and all national leagues are active, I figured now or never. As mentioned above, the team were selected from the participating countries in last years World Cup. To keep things random (for concept purposes), the first round is alphabetical, then I flipped a coin for each and every matchup. Note: The top two teams were selected from FIFAs national league standings on March 20, 2015; the coin flips occurred the same day. What you can expect to see in the future: Concepts for the Elite Eight: (possibly) redesigned crest, home and clash kitsTournament mascot: A crazy idea that I will probably butcher, but how else do you get better?Matchup graphics: a la televised pregame showsI am fully open to and appreciate C&C, but realize I may not get to updating until I am done with the initial posts. Without further ado, I present to you the brackets, the Alliance logo and the tournament logo.
  8. It's named "CCSLC Forum Brackets", and the password is "ccslcforum". I didn't put a year in the name of the group because I wanted it to be one that everyone can rejoin every year without it having the previous year in the title. If you are interested in joining, please post that here so that we know who is playing. If you decide to play, please name the bracket with your CCSLC usersname (you don't have to rename your username) so that we know which brackets are associated with which people. ONLY one bracket per person per group. Same group name and password for the following sites... ESPN Group CBS Sports Group Yahoo! Group NCAA March Madness Group Because the ESPN group gets a better showing, I encourage everyone to join that one. If there isn't a good showing in the other groups this year, they will likely not be continued in following years. 2016 EDIT: All the groups above except for the NCAA March Madness group were reactivated. I had to make a new group for the NCAA March Madness group because the NCAA site doesn't save groups from previous years. All the links above should work for this year. The Sports Illustrated group and Fox Sports group from last year (2015) were removed because of lack of people. New for this year (2016), here's an ESPN Group for the women's basketball tournament... ESPN Group (Women's Tournament) ESPN Second Chance (Restart Bracket at Sweet 16) ESPN Second Chance Group 2017 EDIT: All the groups from 2016 are back and the links should work. Again, I encourage everyone to join the ESPN one because it gets the best participation. The Second Chance group will be reactivated once ESPN has it up again.
  9. The American States Cup

    So this is a concept I came up with. The American Sates Cup. It's a soccer (football) tournament where each of the 50 states of America battle in multi-stage tournament. There are ten groups. Each group has 5 states. Each team plays each other two times for a total of ten games each team. Then, the top 2 automatically qualify for the knockout stage. The teams that finish 3rd and 4th battle to see who will go into the knockout stage. A 30 team tournament remains. Much like the Champions League, the teams are randomly selected to see who will go against who. Plus, two teams are randomly selected to have a bye week. Instead of randomly selected each stage for who will go against who, it will be more of a World Cup format where the teams will go against the team above or below them on the bracket that won. Basically like the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Of course it leads to the final, and it is a single-elimination, except for third place game. I have randomly selected the teams and groups seen below in the group stages. For each group I will introduce the jerseys for each state. So here is the Group Stage.
  10. With the First Four/Round One complete, I can now present you with the 2014 NCAA Tournament Bracket Wallpaper. This year I had a bit more time to work on it, and was able to make it more High Quality (hopefully). Here it is: Updated: April 5,: Final Four. Other Sizes (Sweet Sixteen): 2880x1620 (Original Size) 1920x1080 1680x1050 1440x810 1280x720 Round 3 (Round of 32): Full Size Second Round (Round of 64): Sizes: 2880x1620 (Original Size) 1920x1080 1440x810 1280x720
  11. United Way Football Tournament

    Hello everyone. I posted a version of this logo for last years tournament and got some good feedback, so I thought I would post the 2014 version and see where it goes. Couldn't decide on a chrome version or the color version so I did both. Feedback is appreciated! Color version: Chrome version: Old logo VS New logo:
  12. Hello everyone! In London, Ontario every year, high schools from across the city participate in a fundraiser for the United Way called "The United Way High School Football Tournament" It's not really a tournament, but the city's senior football (Grade 11 to 13) teams head down to TD Waterhouse Stadium at Western University and play their first regular season game in front of their schools. The students at the schools pay $5 to board a bus and head down to the university to watch the games. Great atmosphere as a player (Played in the game 3 times) and as a fan. One thing I have notice is that there isn't a logo or a symbol for the games, so I thought I would take a stab at designing one. Feedback is greatly appreciated! The building on the top of the logo is the J.W. Little Memorial Building. It is the main entrance to the stadium and houses the locker rooms. I know there is still work to be done to call this one finished, so any constructive feedback is welcome!
