We can all agree that the USA baseball team's uniforms are dated, and do not look any better with this year's WBC. Recently, Uni Watch has posted a USA Baseball redesign contest, and I wanted to share my look with you: Logo: An attempt to simplify and modernize the team's current cap logo. USA is in a more modern and bolder font, along with a retooled, brighter shade of red (what USA baseball needs more of). Home: White pinstripe vest with blue undershirt. USA is in red to give the color a more distinct position. Road: Grey uniform with basic piping details. Font and lettering color does not change. Simply a basic, American-style look. Alternate: A tribute to the "golden age" of early 1900's baseball. Simplified cap with star, blue jersey with blue pants and white striped stockings, and a vintage styled font. A bit out there, but added in for a fun look. No changes will be coming to the entry sent in for the Uni Watch competition, but C&C is still welcomed.
Hi guys, Let's be honest here, the Team USA baseball jerseys aren't the prettiest in the world. I've never loved them, but never hated them. In my mind the US should have some of the best uniforms in the world, considering they produce some of the best names in baseball. With the 2017 WBC jerseys being released is the past few weeks (and me being beyond happy that baseball is back), I completely reimagined their jerseys. I came up with this idea in class this week, and the first thing that started the whole design was redoing the wordmark. I took probably my favorite font and put USA in red, then added a white drop shadow and a blue below that one. That way it can seem like the script has some depth without making it look muddled and cluttered. I continued that onto the hat logo which is shown with a blue U on the style portion of the sheet, even though on the hats it is a little different (the 2nd drop shadow is red, the 1st is blue to blend in, and the U is white). The U and S interlock much like their current hats though I removed the star from the back and added some more tweaks. It also includes a blue brim and cap. The numbers also follow the same pattern as the front to create unity throughout the set. One of my favorite parts of the whole design, and very much an example of trying something crazy and having it look fantastic, is the sublimated stars in the wordmark, hat logo, and numbers on the back. This way the jerseys can be unique to the USA without having a flag inserted in everything, like some of the recent holiday hats the MLB has done. The away jersey is just a gray version of the home. Both have blue sleeve stripes, a blue stripe down the pant leg, a USA flag patch on the sleeve, and a WBC logo patch on the back. Also, in the style guide presentation I created, it has a blue practice shirt and coach's polo with the Alt logo, as well as a red fan t-shirt with a white and blue version of the USA script. C&C is greatly appreciated, and enjoy!
