  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. I want to try to alter and reinvent some of the classic and iconic logos in sports. Logos that no one would want to change, but for the purpose of these concepts, that's the entire point. There's a bit more of a write up here - http://tinyurl.com/nsjvt3c I've done two so far. The Red Sox and Yankees. These are more edgy and not as round as the originals. What do you guys think? And what are some other classic logos you'd like to see my change?
  4. The end. When you mourn something special that you'll want to relive someday...when you know you can ride off into the sunset, on your own terms, with no regrets...when you pour one...when one book closes for good, and another opens its blank pages. Who knows, maybe I'll look back and think this book was so good, I might wanna crack it open again. We're here, and so are the Dodgers... Dem Bums wore pinstripes off and on before the advent of the script...couldn't think of a cap so I just used the iconic one. The Giants roam the Polo Grounds one more time... The home set utilizes the blank fronts that were common before the 30s, while the all black roads are a tribute to early Giants manager John McGraw, who liked to put his nine in all black for World Series trips. And the damn Yankees... Pinstripe-free whites, a la the early 1910s, and pinstriped roads with a Yankees script a la their classic dugout jackets. And with that, I'm out of the park for now...
  5. About a month ago or so, I'd posted a Cubs/White Sox rivalry set that was pretty well received, and I'd said I had a few other city and state rivalries in mind. I was initially considering going the flag route again, though decided against it, as things would've looked FAR more awkward than when I went that route with the Chicago clubs: the Mets already wear the colors of the NYC flag, and if I'd based anything on the Queens flag, then you're talking about replacing orange with yellow and red. And on the Yanks' side...the Bronx flag is blue and orange. Yeah...eh...um, no. Just no. So I took a couple approaches here...for the Mets, both uniforms are hybrid fauxbacks that prominently take inspiration from 1916, among other years. The home whites have a checkered pattern, a la the 1916 Dodgers, with the large N Y on the chest emblematic of the 1900s Giants, along with a contrasting placket with METS written on it diagonally, which was briefly worn by the Dodgers a few years before the checkered unis. Though I figure blue numbers would've shown up fine, I felt orange numbers would show up better. For the grays, I used the other bizarre NYC uniform choice of '16, the Giants' violet plaid, right down to a temporary color change to violet/black. Don't worry, it'd only be for two days The chief difference from '16 is a semi-intentional anachronism, the mid-80s New York script (I thought about using the 93-94 script, but I figure Mets fans would rather not ever see that one again) that serves as the Dodger nod. I might post an orange/blue version of the road later, but then I've kept the plaid violet before (on a version I'd posted years ago, modernized for the San Francisco era) and I very well might again. For the Yanks, like I said that one time I posted an alt-historical road alt for em, I think they could do vests justice, so both uniforms are sleeveless. The home uniform largely maintains the familiar look, but with a touch of championship gold. The cap NY is gold, the pinstripes are gold, and the jersey NY and numbers have a gold outline. The road grays are an obvious departure from the normal fare: a lot of folks hate pinstriped grays, but I figured it made at least a bit of sense...and a confession, originally I had a block YANKEES across the chest, as a nod to Murder's Row (the Yanks' grays read YANKEES for a few years in the late 20s before reverting to NEW YORK). The hat & bat script I went with...I know I ripped off the Braves in that regard, but damn if it don't look good. I know one thing, every now and then I give a brief thought to resurrecting something I did when I first stumbled upon the logo community: Turn Ahead the Clock...and then I realize I'll likely never need to truly revisit that era. Kinda like how even though almost nobody runs the pure Run & Shoot anymore, its concepts are everywhere. Just thinking in print, a little bit.
  6. With the World Series over ( congrats Giants), it's now time to talk about the off-season. The first big news story has been that the Cubs will be signing and announcing the hiring of Joe Maddon as Manager. This came after the club fired Rick Renteria. So discuss any news and signing's related to MLB.
  7. I wish that some mlb teams would get rid of the white outlines on their scripts and striping, as it creates what many here describe as an "80s" look, and in some cases, causes a script to lose its organic charm and look like something designed on a computer screen. The Dodgers dropped their white outline years ago, and have never looked better (at least in LA.) Next on my hit list is the Phillies road uniform. Their current uniform came out in '92, and I guess the white outline, cuff trim, and pants stripe fit in with the aesthetic of the era (not too dissimilar to MTL's). However, among my many gripes about the current script, it (and all scripts IMO) is that it doesn't look like something that could ever be drawn by hand, which IMO is the charm of old-timey scripts (several other teams fall into this category as well.) Part of it has to do with the roundness of the letters and the precision shaping of them, but the most easily fixable part is the white outline around them which creates a "patch" effect - (which is what I'm sure they are actually intending, since it appears with a white outline in every single instance that it's used. I guess that's consistency, which is usually a good thing, but I think you can make adjustments in some cases without affecting your brand.) The 40s and 50s didn't suffer from this, and look infinitely better IMO. The Tigers are another offender. They have a great script, but it has two outlines on it, the outer which is white. I'm okay with a single colored outline, as long as it's an outline and not a "fill in the gaps" background patch. The white needs to go though. It clashes with the rest of the uniform, since they use the navy and orange caps on the road. Plus it has that "80s" style that they were moving away from when they ditched the racing stripes of their old Indians' style uniform. The white Sox fall into this category as well. For some reason though, I don't mind their script with the outline. Their pants bothered me more, but they fixed that. However they left the white on the sleeve and script. Maybe it's because gray and black is dull IMO, but it wouldn't really bother me if it remained on the script. That is inconsistent with my other opinions though. I think a better fix would be to add a second color to the black - red being the most obvious choice. That, however, is a discussion for another thread. The Yankees seem to be the most debated offenders in this category. Many want them to lose all white, many think they look "classic" even with the white, and think it should stay. Discuss.
  8. Hi all- I'm a long time follower of this forum but have never created a concept, until now obviously. Like many, I was disappointed with the new SWB RailRiders identity. It fails to capture the true rail heritage of NEPA. While working on a paper I doodled a logo idea and decided to take it to Photoshop. I intend to use the same colors that the team uses: Electric Gold, Red Baron Maroon, and Yankee Navy. As of now, I just have what might be a cap logo or a jersey logo. The upload file looks awful so please forgive me It is inspired by this logo of the Pennsylvania Railroad: This is my first concept ever (please keep that in mind), and C & C would be much appreciated! Whenever I have free time, I hope to create uniforms and other logos for this concept.
