MLB Cap Concepts

Recommended Posts

I'm in a 6 person group chat with some great designers my age. When one of us high jacks a conversation to talk New Era fitted caps/snap backs, we call it #hatchat.

 

So you might remember a template I made where I traced the New Era cap on their website. Well, that was on Inkscape. Since then, I've moved on to Illustrator, which uses layers like Photoshop. Recently, I updated my template to make it Illustrator friendly.

 

First, I got a Rays cap from the 2016 MLB All-Star Game with the heather pattern and star buttons. Here is me playing with the template on some old brands.

I also cataloged my caps on a new twitter header for myself.

Finally, I made a list of teams with the worst branding in the MLB. The Mariners and Indians were 2 of the top 3. Here is my quick rebrands that I want to turn into a full rebrand.

These are really cool. Makes me wish my All-Star hats concept could've looked that good!

I adore that Indians cap that you made! The new C and the feather really work together along with red & brown.

Those cap designs for Seattle and Cleveland look awesome! Who's the third team?

Yeah it was the Rockies, but I listed the White Sox 3rd before I remembered Cleveland

#HatChat: The Forum Post - A raysox Original 

 

I don't think I told you yet but I've decided to use your template to catalog my hats. It'll be way too big for a Twitter header

Have you done a redesigned Sox cap?

Nah, not yet. To clarify, I think the White Sox brand could be simplified. I feel like the logo has too many outlines on the jersey, then the road uniform doesn't match anything on the home set. Also they should wear stirrups with actual white socks. I did make this pullover the other day.
