MLS by DT Concepts and Nike - ALL TEAMS POSTED

Recommended Posts

Zeus89725    952

Been trying to get a series up and running, so here's an attempt at that. Redesigning the MLS using a Nike template.

5914f7601f7cf_OpeningPres.thumb.png.5112ceaa659a2aa50ff87cb10f67373d.png

 

I'll start things off with the All-Star jersey. Seeing as how the league plays a European team as the all-stars' opponent, only one jersey is needed. Here's that.

More teams up later.

First real team is here. I've got the Houston Dynamo ready.

 

59152ef80a48d_HoustonDynamoPres.thumb.png.ab27b197c35a81e7d07222bbe8548f3f.png

 

Pretty basic things here. The logo is a redone version of their unused "Houston 1836" logo. The kits are also pretty simple, and don't really go too far out of the box. The alternate builds on one of their previous alternates.

 

What do you think?

Love the concepts already! Curious to see how the other teams will look like. Houston Logo is great!

 

Only thing I would fix is the MLS logo on the sleeves and sponsor logos are too large imo.

Nice start here, but I think that if the Nike logo is black in the away and third jerseys, they would look better. After you make the Nike logo black in the third jersey you might also want to center the Nike logo on the chevron.

 

Looking forward for more, keep up the good work!

Next up, we've got the Colorado Rapids.

 

59162a9475eea_ColoradoRapidsPres.thumb.png.4118f74724aa37424c1c0dc9d6720c7c.png

 

Pretty simple. The home features the Rocky Mountains, the away features the Colorado flag, and the alternate is just a double blue jersey. Speaking of double blue, I replaced the grey in the logo with a second blue, making a more vibrant and unique color scheme. Yellow is also added as a tertiary color.

Nothing? I'll keep truckin' along with NYC FC.

 

5917396d42b63_NYCFCPres.thumb.png.3ef2a341ecd921bc4a2443e7b39e37d2.png

 

Pretty simple here, except for the alternate. The alternate was inspired by the New York City flag, this Icethetics concept, and the idea of having one continuous stripe on the uniform. I thought about doing pinstripes or something like that, but concluded they should stay in baseball.

 

What do you think?

Three straight posts. Odd. I'll keep on rolling.

Here's LA Galaxy. Embraced the yellow, kept the chest stripe, and added an alternate that uses stars on it. The away is based on the LA Rams jerseys.

Very nice work. Is it possible to see the Galaxy third without the watermark? Hard to see the design on it. My favorites so far is the NYC home and third as well as the Dynamo third.

Yeah the watermark is very distracting otherwise what I can make out looks really good

You really have to work on the sizing of the nike logo, the sponsor logos and the MLS logos.

 

all three are far too large.

Not a big fan of the white sash on the yellow home, but I surprisingly like the yellow home idea. Rams inspired away is nice, and the third kit is beautiful.

 

Colorado is clean and fits, Houston is nice, but I've grown used to the Orange and White with black and sky blue trim. Something in the Third for NYCFC just doesn't sit right with me. The home and away are good, but the striping just seems off in the third.

 

Can't wait to see what you do to my LAFC

Sorry I missed the past few days. I'm just gonna dump a bunch of concepts here.

 

Atlanta United FC

591b8cf52c081_AtlantaUFCPres.thumb.png.87c9c65fc0867d24bf3c4193ed0d73c6.png

 

This team has one of the worst names in the league, and is tied with a few other "FC"s and "United"s. However, their logo is decent, and I tried to make their jerseys follow. The away was just to be different, and the alternate is a half-and-half loosely based on the home.

 

Chicago Fire

591b8d127e11c_ChicagoFirePres.thumb.png.7b383b69ae2f73938ea57f17235e945e.pnghis

 

This team has (arguably) one of the sharpest identities in the MLS. I built on that by adding the Chicago flag's baby blue, adding sublimated fire to their home, and using chest stripes on the other two. The alternate is based on the Chicago flag, with the sponsor acting as the flag's four stars.

 

Seattle Sounders

591b8d4a75788_SeattleSoundersFCPres.thumb.png.b058a9d180344a1aa3fee709e6cca048.png

 

The Sounders have a great identity that I love, but add that unnecessary 'FC' suffix. This is the team with the most unified brand kit-wise, as each one of them uses sublimated chest stripes, while maintaining an individual identity.

 

Sporting Kansas City

591b8e2047bac_SportingKCPres.thumb.png.430eda7b6becfb61ee26ec1db1cd8a54.png

 

Another bland name. While it beats 'WIZ' and 'Wizards', it's still pretty boring. Their logo isn't terrible, though, and I tried to translate the stripes on the logo into the home jersey. The away plays it safe, but is the only colored away so far. The alternate goes far-out, being inspired by the Kansas City Wizards. It's not an exact replica, but it's pretty close. Also, note the differently colored crest on the alternate.

 

That's all! I'll start posting teams when I have them done, at this point. No need to drag this thing out.

These designs all look nice. One minor thing that bothers me though is that you are centering the sponsor logo on the vertical mid-line centered from of the left and right edges of the body rather than the true 3 dimensional mid-line that aligns with the point of the v-neck. With the 1/4 rotated view you are using, the sponsor logos all look as if they are shifted toward the player's right armpit.

Don't know if intended or not, but the Fire are way ahead of you (regarding to the alternate)

My point exactly. Plus, a bunch of teams add an unnecessary "FC" or "SC" to their name.

Unintentional, but I'll take it.

 

Here are a bunch more.

 

Impact Montreal

591d0c6266897_ImpactMontrealLayers.thumb.png.a19fa4166927dc01f08db1e7912d9c2f.png

 

The home was based off the logo, with the black stripes on a blue background. I lowered the amount of stripes, however, to make it look cleaner. The away plays it safe, and the alternate was inspired by the banner on the team's logo.

 

Minnesota United FC

591d0cb9669ca_MinnesotaUnitedFCPres.thumb.png.d8c3bf5314e403b1eee86612f37805e8.png

 

This team's name is a culmination of what I hate in the MLS. I get the reasoning behind 'United' in this case, but there are so many better names. And, of course, the unnecessary 'FC'. The home was taken from their logo, the away was an attempt at a vertical stripe, and the alternate was the one conventional jersey.

 

New England Revolution

591d0d2e063ad_NewEnglandRevolutionPres.thumb.png.53485b64b2cf82aa793a68e1d9e909eb.png

 

This was the idea behind the whole project. With the Revolution's current terrible logo, I tried to redesign it. Obviously, it had to use the tree from the New England flag, so that's there. It's a basic shield shape that took some cues from the MLS logo. Regardless, the home uniform plays off the chest sash in the logo, the away is really simple, and the alternate uses a hockey-inspired chest stripe.

 

Portland Timbers

591d0d586c7bd_PortlandTimbersPres.thumb.png.d564a79e334fd6a6a9a2d3fceb92691e.png

 

This is probably the most mixed identity here. You'll note the logo is taken from the team's unused logo, just recolored a bit. The home is an iteration of a jersey of theirs, and the other two play off the "Rose City" moniker. The road uses full-body stripes, and the alternate goes full-on with the red.

 

San Jose Earthquakes

591d0d7ce3d7b_SanJoseEarthquakesPres.thumb.png.13b1a5e5dafec8345f4dc373dcb99304.png

 

This team's logo pisses me off. You're the Earthquakes, not the "Quakes." Make your logo right. I fixed that, and made the pattern on the logo a central part of the identity, both on the home and alternate kits. The road uses the vertical stripe the team uses now, but makes it the right color.

 

That's it! What do you think?

I think a splash of red is needed on the Quakes as it looks a bit too similar to the Impact. Good job all around though. Looking forward to LAFC.

Just gonna dump a bunch more here.

 

Columbus Crew SC

591f6a6ce59a1_ColumbusCrewSCPres.thumb.png.66dbbd9fda4ee53df38d321c1ca2dd72.png

 

I really am a fan of the Crew's logo. I tried to incorporate it into the home and away kits, but more so the home. The alternate is just an idea I had that I think is kind of rough.

 

Toronto FC

 

591f6aa71ee2f_TorontoFCPres.thumb.png.3f662360cd9b9e0df19d5644d0256978.png

 

I wish Toronto had a real name. Anyways, I took some cues from the leaf in their logo and put it into the home and away. The alternate is a "grey for grey's sake," if you will, because their logo has a good amount of it. I also simplified the logo.

 

DC United

591f6ac2ca00b_DCUnitedPres.thumb.png.b852d524f2f2e4eff95d50fc523fec23.png

 

DC United's new logo is great, and I got the idea to use the DC flag on the home from it. Looking back on it, having the flag on the white jersey might've made more sense, but I still think it's sharp. The alternate is a half-and-half jersey that I think just looks good.

 

FC Dallas

591f6ae019edd_FCDallasPres.thumb.png.bcf44cc25b5ecc478eb5ca4832440a09.png

 

How unoriginal can you be? You've got a badass bull in your logo but your name is "FC." Anyways, very simple jerseys for this team.

 

Los Angeles FC

591f6af9337d3_LAFCPres.thumb.png.d238f7cd90c189eb3673813fc7204a04.png

 

I don't know why, but I love LAFC. Their name sucks, but I like how they minimize white in their logo, and I just like their overall identity. Very simple hooped kits for them, with a logo-inspired alternate that's a bit more out there. Also, I made Disney the sponsor because why not?

 

Orlando City

591f6b19daedd_OrlandoUnitedPres.thumb.png.67db49865e5b5e3f1b8671146284b941.png

 

Again, some really simple and safe jerseys for Orlando. I wanted to go more out-there with these, but I couldn't find any inspiration to do so. Regardless, I added a little grey to the identity just to update it a bit.

 

Philadelphia Union

591f6b38afa7e_PhiladelphiaUnionPres.thumb.png.164068b2c02c8f1569da27487ef0fe08.png

 

Yet another logo-inspired bunch of kits. Only major change was making the sponsor logo match the team's color scheme, rather than sticking out like a sore thumb.

 

Real Salt Lake

591f6b5472aca_RealSaltLakePres.thumb.png.1e4cd5860be49da66e6c2ad65d365faf.png

 

I tried to clean up Real Salt Lake's logo. I'm not a fan of their font and I wished the circles were actual circles. I know it's kind of becoming routine, but these are really simple and safe kits.

 

Red Bull New York

591f6b75a1e8a_RedBullNYPres.thumb.png.4bcd3143aa9409eec7c6e6c930e229a1.png

 

This is one of the team names I dislike most in the MLS. I don't like that the Red Bulls use a sponsor as their actual name. The way they use the red bulls on their kits is unique and good-looking, but I just dislike how branded the team seems.

 

Vancouver Whitecaps

591f6b93b97d0_VanWhitecapsPres.thumb.png.2cf465d5ef6ad1e21ea19ea4697db55f.png

 

I adore the Whitecaps' identity. I love the logo, the colors, and their overall identity. My only nitpick, however, is the 'FC.' With their kits, I filled them with some small gradients on the kits, and some mountains taken from the logo.

 

 

That's it for the series! What did you think?
