    At this point, there has been so many concepts for a Redskins rebrand over the last week, that I might be beating a dead horse here, but I'll throw my hat in the ring nonetheless. I started with the expectation the Redskins name and logo/imagery will be completely dropped. From there, I liked the idea of Warriors, as it keeps a piece of the team's history, but it can be redone in so many different ways. I chose to go with something that was more taken from a monumental/iconic feel, using a less brash burgundy and gold color scheme and introducing a new shield logo complete with new W emblem, meant to resemble the Washington Monument or a warrior's sword. The uniforms take on a more classic look, as to not take away too much from the Redskins traditional look. I know this isn't the most imaginative idea, but it was one I have been sitting on for about a year. What do you guys think? Oh and apparently this somehow made it onto Yahoo Sports, which was surprising to say the least. : https://sports.yahoo.com/best-uniform-logo-designs-potential-204409667.html

    I've been trying some new stuff lately when it comes to design, and after seeing Iceland's incredible new identity, I decided to try something in the modern design style that Iceland and the Montreal Alouettes have utilized so well in recent years. As I'm wont to do, I decided to go back to a team that I'd made a design for previously. Awhile back I made a logo for Leicester in my European soccer redesigns thread that I'm, honestly, not very fond of looking back. I'd redo it, but I can't seem to find the original file anywhere, so I thought it was the perfect team to try something new and different with. The design uses more of an outline style rather than the illustrated style and features only two main colors. Overall, the linework is designed to mimic the fur color of the original logo, with most of the head featuring yellow, and the snout featuring white. Rather than place the flower behind the logo, I decided to integrate it into the actual shape of the fox's head and ears. Finally, I wanted to keep the traditional roundel but kept it a simple circle with the ears protruding beyond it. Below is a comparison with the current logo

    (Just to get this in on the record before the lock so people can see) For a pretty basic answer to @walkerws’s comment, Canada has three different indigenous populations. There’s the First Nations (akin to Native Americans), the Metis (who are the decendents of early French settlers and First Nations) and the Inuit (the northern population who “Eskimos” refers to). The naming of the team refers to the Inuit population. This part is coming from my own fuzzy memory and internet comments, so take it with a grain of salt, but "Eskimo" is accepted as a collective name for the three different northern indigenous populations/groups in Alaska, one of which is the Inuit, but Canada only has the Inuit and "Eskimo" is not considered the proper term for anyone in Canada. As the article says, the Eskimos did relatively recent consultations with Inuit communities about the name. The Eskimos said the findings showed there was considerable support for the name and no real consensus on it being offensive or not, which is partially why the calls to change the name haven't previously had the same staying power like the calls for Washington or Chief Wahoo. The context of this article is in response to the Eskimos announcing yesterday they are going to be increasing engagement with the Inuit community about the name in the wake of Washington and Cleveland’s announcements. After the Eskimos announcement, an Nunavut MP tweeted out saying that the fact there was no consensus means the team should change the name. Another Inuit lady who was part of the consultations tweeted out that she told the Eskimos the name was offensive and that the consultations were “BS” because they were invite only and not open to the general public. This is an ongoing story right now, so just because they said here they are going to be keeping the name now, doesn’t mean it’s going to stay for much longer. (The apparent clubhouse leader for a potential new name is absolutely terrible, but that discussion is for another time).

    Thanks. I'm sticking with Rebeldes, since Tejanos is just a Spanish translation of the NFL Texans' name. Also, when the Dallas team uses the "Texas" identifier, it just look strange. Thanks! I'm more inclined to like the Rebeldes concept, since I wanted something really "out there" for San Antonio/the club that was the Marlins. Thanks! Thanks! I really wanted to do the Fiesta colors justice here, as well as a Cavs/Bucks-styled striped set. I'd say it worked pretty well. I opted to dump the face for a heraldry design, since that was more my jam. Thanks. Yeah, the face was a terrible idea. Like, it just looks doofy compared to other face designs, while also being slightly insensitive (despite trying to do the "respectable" angle - I've Washington NFL'd myself). That's why I've gone in the heraldry angle instead. Sorry, but I'm sticking with Rebeldes. So, with this update. I gave the Missions a new primary logo, while also improving the retro script. The tan is also lighter. The Rebeldes get a new primary logo that ditches "Señor Antonio" for a heraldry design, inspired by Texian Army flags. (From left: the "Come and Take It" flag of John Henry Moore from the Battle of Gonzales, Brown's Independence Flag from the Siege of Bexar, and the Troutman Flag of the Georgia Battalion from the Battle of the Alamo) The canons are my Tampa Bay Cannons design, while the cutlasses are a new element (I am unashamed in flipping assets I've previously created). The updates are above in the original posts.

    - Really? - It's a bit of a reach to say that makes it offensive in anyway. I think it'll be fine. - Who cares what people outside the area think? The target demographic is the people of Seattle and its surrounding area. If Seattleites like it; I think that's more than enough of a reason to use it. - Yes, and we also have Ducks and Penguins. It doesn't have to be an intimidating beast.

    New England Patriots Pat Patriot makes a return, with some deeper colors, and 6 stars on his tricorn hat. The 6 stars, also featured on the right chest of the jersey, represent the 6 states of New England (MA, ME, RI, NH, VT, CN), and the 6 Super Bowls won during the team's dynasty years. Split on whether the home jersey should be red or blue.

    Thanks! I'll tweak the primary to more resemble the tertiary design. Thank you! SAN ANTONIO REBELDES - Fiesta Fury It was tough to come up with a Spanish-language alternative to Missions. Texas (well, San Antonio anyway) is a relatively pluralistic region when it comes to the Hispanic population (39.7% of Hispanic descent in the state and 60.7% in Bexar County).1 Since the Astros name isn't technically Spanish and the Rangers celebrate an organization known for discriminating against Mexican-Americans, it would make sense to have a Spanish-language sobriquet in Texas. Rebeldes made sense as a name since it honored the Tejanos (Texans of Mexican descent) who fought in the Texas Revolution, most notably at the Battle of the Alamo. The logo emulates a Tejano rebel. With regards to the colors, I opted to include the "Fiesta" colors with black. Since Fiesta San Antonio honors the Texas Revolution, it made more sense than doing it for the Spurs. I've gone on rants about why the Spurs shouldn't use Fiesta (TL;DR: it goes against the organization's culture under coach Popovich), but it should be fair game for other clubs in the city. The font is the same one from the Missions, with black outlines and fiesta interiors. The secondary logo follows this pattern. I also threw in a roundel, for black backgrounds. EDIT 7/10/20: I replaced the face with a heraldry design (featuring the Alamo, cannons, cutlasses, and a star). The heraldry design now appears in the tertiary roundel. Here are the originals: Logo sheets, home & road, main alternates, secondary alternates, primary jacket, and heritage outerwear. The uniforms use a modified version of FenwayParkJF for the cursive scripts. Said scripts have teal strokes with an insert of the fiesta colors. Striping features color blocks of fiesta colors with black outlines, which also appear on the socks. The Wyoming font returns for the numbers. There are also sand road uniforms, a la the Padres. The alternates include both teal and black jerseys. The teal set has a teal-billed cap, while the black top has fiesta lettering for the insignia and numbers. That second set of alternates has a teal-billed cap with the home uniform, alongside a vintage design. Said vintage alternate carried over from the Missions design. The primary jacket modifies the road script to have a free-standing fiesta tail, while stripes appear throughout the design. The vintage outerwear carries over from the Missions piece. Los Rebeldes can be a fantastic look, using local culture to set them apart from the rest of MLB. C+C is appreciated, as always! Up in the next batch, we have updates, a long-awaited rant about a particular fandom, and a few fictional clubs! 1 “U.S. Census Bureau QuickFacts: Texas,” accessed July 5, 2020, https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/fact/table/bexarcountytexas,TX/RHI725219.

    Here are the New York Mets: Logos Most everything stays the same, the most notable change being the new away script, provided to me by @SFGiants58, much thanks for allowing me to use it. The Cooperstown Collection logo was made by splitting the "N" and the "Y" from the cap logo. Uniforms The home jersey is perfect and remains the same, beyond a change to a number font that better matches the script and cap logo. The away sleeve striping and pants are meant to be reminiscent of the 80's racing stripes. The royal alternate now has striping that mimics the away, and I added a snow white alternate back in to be worn on Sunday afternoons. The Cooperstown Collection is based on a uniform the Mets threw back to in 2009, and the Spring Training uniform emphasizes orange as well as the Mr. Met logo. That's the Mets, the cross-town Yankees will be up next.

    Sorry for double posting, but my topic got moved to the 2nd page and I think alot of people missed my latest updates... So I wanted to make sure some people were able to see everything now that its finished. Now that July 4th has come and gone, I'm ready to post my Montreal and Vegas Concepts. Montreal Canadiens: Maroons Throwback I've seen alot of blue concepts, throwback concepts with the same colors. But the Maroons, whom played in Montreal from 1924-1938 don't get alot of love. Yes they were different franchises but its a city that canb be proud of another 2 Stanley Cups in addition to the 24 they already have... which are noted by the thin stripes on the arms and waist line. The center lines are in the design of the original Maroons striping, but centered in the middle of the chest with the Canadiens logo to represent the team representing them now. The slogan "nos bras meurtris vous tendent le flambeau" is present in the inner collar with the Canadiens colors and stripes. Its one of my favorites and I hope the Montreal fans enjoy it as much as I do. Vegas Golden Knights: Knight Life I don't know how the logo would work (my thought would be how this season's Camo practice jerseys were made, as type of thick print) but I loved the neon idea I had to roll with it. The Blackhawks jersey I made took a BIT of an inspiration from this but I feel the look of the stripes keeps it from looking too similar. I originally wanted to spell out "VEGAS" in the neon stripes at the bottom of the torso, but A. It was difficult to do effectively, and B. Looked a bit too gaudy for my liking... so I scrapped it, but the idea lives on on the shoulder stripes with the V. I wanted to used their shoulder patch as the main crest from the start, and once the neon theme popped into my head, I think I made the right decision, as the two colors help it really pop. I then re-added the same patch design behind the main Vegas logo on the shoulder, this time exclusively in red so the gold Vegas neon popped out. So there are all 31 teams, but I had a few requests from friends to work on a couple other designs... so I'll share those as well... Chicago Blackhawks: City Edition The Bulls had one, and I love it. I was asked my a friend of mine to take the Chicago Flag and interpret it into a Blackhawks uniform. I originally had a white one, but, as you an tell by my profile pic, I love the cyan and red combo, so I went with the light blue. I added the stars on the collar like they were in the 2016 Stadium Series Jersey, but also added a couple to the arms, much like I did with the other Blackhawks jersey I made with the feathers. Added the flags of both Chicago and Illinois where the tomahawk would go to further the City Pride aspect, and even State pride. Seattle Metropolitans: I designed this a few years ago, and even shared it on these forums back then, but i t got minimal attention, so I wanted to update it with the newest template I got. The logo was taken from an image they had on their website as I am in no way a logo designer, which is unfortunate... But I was able to grab the color scheme from there, and it looked very futuristic, so I kinda went with a techy kind of look. The grey stripes are meant to look like carbon fiber, kinda with the same treatment San Jose's current stealth jersey stripes have, but with just a straight carbon fiber look, despite mine just being diagonal stripes. The "infrared" color really helps set this look apart. I made away and alternates back in the day and maybe I will re-do those too at some point.

    I used to prefer red as the Blues' third color but, after some persuasive arguments On This Here Board, came around to preferring navy. There is something childlike about all three primary colors together like that, and the diagonal-stripe uniforms used way too much red and ruined the whole idea. I don't think the two shades of blue blend together. In fact, it's a good palette to have in the mix when other teams are head-to-toe in one shade or the other (Islanders, Canucks, Maple Leafs, Lightning, Jets, Sabres).

    This board should be the place to discuss the team colors, nickname, uniform design, etc - and nothing more. The political threads were the worst thing about the forums. I don’t want to post about how much I love their new shade of burgundy, just to have to go through 3 pages of “PC police!” and “ignorant redneck!” just to follow up on it. There’s members here that I legit don’t like or respect because their views on certain topics have been exposed, and there was no need for it had we just been talking about uniforms. I think it’s possible as Long as the rules for the thread are spelled out in big boldface type. We’re talking about potential new names, what their new logo may be, if they’re playing in the current unis but with plain helmets, etc, and anything that references politics or debate around the name is instantly removed and the person reprimanded. my only fear with that is that I can see a lot of “innocent” people being suspended for posts that they didn’t mean to be political in nature but were maybe interpreted as such, and the current system doesn’t allow for an explanation - it’s just straight to “suspended for belligerence towards the moderation team”.

    With all the things happening, I've designed and/or tweaked some NFL Uniforms using my own template. Not all teams will get the treatment nor will they get descriptions however so feel free to look around and if theres any questions and if i'm available, i'll answer. Enjoy!

    That wolf head is pretty cool. It reminds me of Wolverhampton FC a little. I think there needs to be a little more depth of detail or shading on the forehead. It's almost TOO simple with all the open space. Also, while I definitely support a name and imagery change for the Skins, I think the colors should remain.

    I can't imagine Seattle's team would have a ton of reach beyond the northwest of the country anyways; Seattle isn't really a New York, Los Angeles or Boston-type city where the fandom is national in scale, so naming your team to try and make it appealing to people in markets that have very little impact on the place your team is actually located seems kind of dumb, especially in a regional sport like hockey where you know the brand won't be as ubiquitous as a team like the Red Wings or Leafs. That sort of appeal comes with time and success, not because you named your team a certain thing. You could name them the Seattle Rubber Puckies and they'd still be a big deal if they came out of the gate a dynasty.

    Cases where I don't like monochrome usually involve either... 1) A traditional team trying to hard to fake it and subsequently failing in being "cool" (Packers, Chiefs) or 2) A team can't commit to the look fully, resulting in some kind of element like a different-colored helmet or socks sticking out way too much from everything else and ruining the balance of it all (Browns, Cardinals) In contrast, Seattle's monochrome is well done because it suits their modern identity and everything is well balanced color-wise. The set was designed to be worn in monochrome combinations specifically and it shows.

    Since the Mariners are now going on their 19th consecutive season without a playoff berth I thought they could use a fresh start. I've never been a big fan of their current logo, and I prefer the old trident "M" much more to their current serif S+compass logo, which feels too busy and like the forms are visually competing. I explored some visual themes related to the sea, water, ships, etc. and revisited the riffs on the logo for the city of Seattle that I explored with my NHL Seattle designs I posted a while back. I put them on baseball caps, because let's be honest the most important part of a baseball uni is the hat, right? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks! 1. Simplified compass, retro color palette 2.

    Washington Redwolves head update, with new detail to forehead (thanks to 'Slugger') but keeping it geometric rather than illustrative. I have worked with various ideas, but a simpler approach benefits the design. The original concept started with incorporating a 'W' into the head, so I have re-introduced that as an alternative option. But I am not convinced it works in this case. As far as keeping the teams current colours, this could tie in well with the introduction of the darker blue/grey as an accent colour to compliment the original burgundy and gold.

    In my continuing quest to expand my design retinue while also redoing old designs I decided to take a look at the University of New Hampshire Wildcats again. I've never liked their current logo, and always felt that the logo is a poor representation of a bobcat. In my old design, I made the logo front facing and stylized it differently. Much like the other designs I've redone, I'm not particularly a fan of it anymore. It's overly cartoony, especially in the eyes, and indicates my general inability to move away from a particular style in my logos back then. For my new design, rather than just updating the logo, I decided to challenge myself and go in a direction I haven't really gone in before. There's something I've always liked about the old school, hand drawn look of logos, and I wanted to depict that. I also wanted to move to a more realistic depiction of a bobcat than I had before. This includes more realistic eyes, head shaping, and markings than the logo I did back in 2013.

    All of the other owners and anyone that's concerned with revenue cares what Joe from New York thinks about the name since they need more people than just the locals to buy merch. Granted, hockey by nature is more of a regional game unlike the other sports, but thinking exclusively about your home market is more like how minor league teams operate. Not saying it's a bad name or anything, just that their market isn't 100% just the Seattle area fans.

    I don’t think anyone is suggesting the name Sockeyes because of the reference to fighting. Sockeye salmon are a huge part of the local history, economy and identity. That’s why it’s a popular name, much more so locally. It also alliterative and sounds professional. I can’t imagine anyone seriously being offended by Sockeyes. I think the reference to fighting in hockey mostly comes from those who don’t know what a Sockeye salmon is. We know it’s there, but it’s not the primary meaning, and the team likely wouldn’t acknowledge it. Sockeye salmon fight the current and swim upstream to lay their eggs. They get bruised and beaten up and yet they persist. If you need some kind of story, that’s how you market it.

    I was bored and i have a Pes Master Premium subscription so i thought why not combine loves of mine Baseball and Soccer (Its football, we use our feet) I wanted to keep some Baseball jersey elements like the team logo placement, so some teams will have logos in the place of the badge. Some teams will not have sponsors at all. The sponsors are the companies that own the naming rights to the teams arena. I've also kept it down to 4 kits (Home, Away, 3rd and GK). The 3rd kit will be mainly classic jerseys but some teams who havent changed their jerseys in a long time will have some thing different. I'm doing these in alphabetical order. I also want to hear peoples opinons on the way ive shown these off. So anyway here are the first two Arizona Diamondbacks This one is quite basic. As you can tell Ive gone with the 1998 Diamondbacks whites. Overtime the 3rds have grown on me. Atlanta Braves I started to get a bit creative for the Braves. The away uses the england Warm us shirt design. you cannot see it on this photo but the 3rd has the sleeve design off the 1974 jerseys on the shorts because i wasnt quite sure how i would do sleeve logos. If wanted at the end i can upload all shirts. i will add shots from inside of pes at some point when i have chance. I would love to hear peoples opinions on these two. I have made the orioles but i'm gonna release 2 at a time

    It's really beyond dumb. People are comparing this to the Riley Cooper incident, but I think this is much worse. When Riley Cooper went on his rant where he challenged "every N-word to a fight", it exposed a very troubling part of his character (not only racism, but also possibly alcoholism and rage issues), but it wasn't like he sat there and consciously planned to make that statement. He exposed himself as a hate filled coward, and frankly would have (and should have) been cut had Michael Vick not stood up for him (which put Vick at odds with a lot of guys, but he was a strong enough leader to make it all work.) Deshawn doubled down on it by shifting from praising Hitler to Farrakhan. It was a conscious decision to share his feelings with the world, so it's not only the character - which, let's be honest, we're finding that a lot of American's lack - but it's so much more than that too. Something I just thought of - in Jackson's tiny mind, does Lurie and Roseman validate his feelings by cutting him? Or does keeping him and trying to educate him possibly make the bigger statement? I kinda hope a 500lb anvil falls on his head so that there's one less person like him in our country (and the Eagles are off the hook.)

    Interesting. I think the white numbers look less boring because of the extra contrast. I’m also not worried about multiple blue teams wearing white numbers because they all have unique accent colors. Meanwhile, the Blackhawks, Devils, Hurricanes and Senators have long worn white numbers with black trim on their red jerseys, and we survived. I guess I’ve just never liked that the numbers on the blue jersey don’t coordinate with anything else; they’re the only thing in the identity that’s gold trimmed in white (other than maybe a wordmark). This is actually what sold me on it:
