    I mocked up what a logo might look like based on this.

    With time, I have come to appreciate the genuine timelessness of this logo and have yet to see a concept that doesn't ruin its delicately super-efficient design:

    Hello! Im just posting this concept for the NBA. I honestly think the NBA should expand to 32 teams. Feel free to comment!

    Still the best looking uniform the 49ers have ever worn

    The Cavs should've packaged the gray City uniforms along with the outgoing players in the deadline deal.

    Personally I think the Rams are sporting their best logo that they've ever had, (compared to their generic helmet logos and that weirdly-detailed 50-60s Ram head) although some fans dislike it due to its association with St. Louis. Their current logo still managed to look timeless and modern after 18 years...

    The 1997-2012 logo for the Dolphins... The only other choices would be all the aged and outdated ones before this, and the current.

    Alright, next team up is: Green Bay Packers The rumor: The 1994 uniform update I guess this one is less ridiculous internet rumor and more of scrapped redesign. So apparently in 1993 then-GM Ron Wolf proposed a uniform update for the Packers that would have replaced their current yellow gold with a darker, metallic shade. According to this these new unis would have had no stripes anywhere, logos on the sleeves, and gold outlines on the numbers. I mocked it up without stripes and wasn't crazy about it, so this is what I ended up with. Added white pants as an alt, kept the navy throwback, and added a green color rush Alts:

    I think the majority of the blame falls on Yormark, and to a lesser extent Charles Wang. Yormark made a number of miscalculations whether they were intentional, out of ignorance, out of sheer arrogance, or some combination of the three. In the season before the move the Isles played a very emotional playoff series against Washington which did a lot to energize the fan base. Instead of seizing the momentum, Yormark decided initially that he wanted to gut the house and start everything new which wasn't going to fly with an existing fan base who, while small is incredibly vocal unlike what I've seen from the Nets side . When the vocal fan base resisted Yormark's strategy he decided that instead of diplomacy he would attack the LI based fans in the media and on social media at every chance he got and only acquiesced when ownership intervened. He decided to go scorched earth on us when at the very least he should have recognized that although unhappy with the move enough of us would migrate over to Barclay's to give him a base to work with. I do feel that had Yormark made more of an effort to be diplomatic he would have faced less resistance from existing fans and would have had an easier time making some changes to better incorporate Brooklyn. I went to one of the first home games at Barclay's and it felt like we were a rent a team in someone else's house. There was no Islander imagery anywhere in the arena, the Team Store had no Islanders branding, the only brand exhibited in the building was Nets. Scheduling also proved an issue because the Islanders have had very few Friday or Saturday home games in Brooklyn since they get whatever's left after concerts and the Nets. Having more Friday and Saturday games would have helped fill the building with the existing fans because it's easier to go to the city on a weekend than during the week which would be supplemented with the Brooklyn crowd. Had Yormark properly marketed to both Brooklyn and Long Island simultaneously I think there would have been better success in both maintaining and building fans. Instead he appeared to try and build one while being openly hostile to the other. Ownership is also to blame here because nothing markets better than winning especially when it comes to a new building. Coming off of the highly emotional playoff series loss to Washington Wang and Snow did absolutely nothing to improve the roster and the team appears to be on their way to missing the playoffs for the second year in a row. I do think that a strong perennial cup contender on the ice would have had a positive impact on attendance which in turn would have helped with better scheduling. However, ineptitude in the front office and an unwillingness to improve the on ice product do not and have not helped any marketing efforts. You can have the best marketing team and campaign ever but if the team isn't winning on the ice... That said from my perspective I'd rather have the Islanders in Brooklyn than Seattle so I accepted the move. The building has issues beyond the obstructed view seats which make it bad for hockey, namely the ice plant is so bad that they have to make the building unbearably cold to the point of being uncomfortable for spectators. I'd rather see the Isles play at MSG or Prudential Center over Barclay's. I'm looking forward to the move to Belmont. And by the way their "MTA" developed goal horn was terrible. He would have had better luck just honking the horn of the rinkside SUV. As for Brett, he can go efff himself much in the same way he told us to do a couple years back.

    Weird shading on the ball. Not a fan of the beveling. The font didn't match the curly-w look at all. To each their own, but this logo was meh at best. To me, the curly W is their best logo

    I thought these would grow on me, but they aren't. They look like the end result of walking into one of those "custom airbrushed tshirts" stores in the mall and saying, "Make me look like a Power Ranger."

    Because I'm so painfully old, the mid-to-late 1990s are retro now. And New Era is now selling throwbacks from the days of Spice Girls and Smash Mouth, made of wool and manufactured in the US, just like they were back then. (Well, almost. All of the caps use flat embroidery, and some of these designs were from the raised embroidery era.) They're also bringing back some of the very hit-and-miss first generation of mesh BP caps. It's apparently a Lids-exclusive line. If any of you hat geeks get your hands on one, I'd like to hear some feedback on the quality.

    Hi all! Aside from keeping my fictional sport HoopBall running and interesting, I do occasionally have some ideas for other concepts, and this is where I will show them. I recently came across RG3's Nike NBA Template, and decided to make a concept that the Nets/Nike could use as a City alternate. I remember reading here that one set of jerseys would change each season, so why not pick up something that has already been done and looked great IMO. I personally loved the Nets "Brooklyn Blue" Dodgers alternates during the Adidas era, and considering that both the Nets alts this season are black/grey, the colourway deserves to make a comeback to break up all the dark colours. The colourway makes sense as a City alt, considering the original jerseys were meant as a homage to the Brooklyn Dodgers. Along with the colours, I used a monochrome ABA Nets style side striping. The Nets use a version of it on their Statement set currently, so this concept would fit well alongside. The rest of it speaks for itself really. C&C is welcomed. Up next there's a tweak I'd like to make to the Cavs' City jersey, whenever I get to it.

    I absolutely loved what New Era started in Minnesota at the 2014 MLB All Star Game by designing special All Star caps that honored the host team. The potential was set up for new caps every year on All Star night to tell a different story about a host team's uniform history or local culture, while also allowing the game a rare chance to have some fun and get creative with their usually sacrosanct brands -- not to mention increasing merchandise sales in the process. Unfortunately, that was a trend that only lasted two seasons. So in an effort to show what could have been, each season I take it upon myself to continue what New Era once started and design my own city-centric concept caps for the MLB All Star Game. For the 2018 ASG in Washington D.C., I dipped into the city's baseball past to help inspire the cap design, while also taking cues from that time period and D.C.'s world-famous cherry blossoms to create a campaign that celebrates the nation's capital as well as the national pastime. To view the entire cap collection along with additional merchandise, plus a look inside the design process and inspiration, visit my website.

    This. And I also appreciate the black sweatband, which doesn’t show the sweat. Those are the kind of historical inaccuracies I’d gladly overlook.

    This is one of the best concepts I've seen on this board. It also strengthens my desire to see the Rams as a Gold team with Navy highlights.

    I agree. Pat Patriot is fine as a secondary logo for merchandise, but doesn't work well as an actual sports logo. However, I also think the brighter colors the Patriots used, circa 1993-1999, were better. Seems they, along with several other teams, used darker colors with the onset of the new millennium. But with some teams starting to go back to brighter colors (such as Kelly green), I wouldn't mind the Patriots do the same. Granted, was not a fan of that era's jersey, especially with the fake pinstripes.

    Brewers are doing a Robin Yount 1970s replica jersey giveaway on July 8. That may indicate throwbacks that day. ?

    O's have already been mentioned, so I'll go with the Ravens. Let's not kid ourselves here...while I've noticed a bit of debate over the B designed in the bird, this logo is etched into our history (thanks to a decade or so of our two greatest Ravens to date, Lewis and Reed). Wouldn't change it for a single penny

Maybe we see something for the 60th anniversaries of the Giants and Dodgers both moving from their former New York homes but that is unlikely. Kansas City could have something up their sleeves for their 50th season but that is also unknown right now

    My new authentic RSL shirt is way nicer than my replica Sounders shirts -- the crest/star/MLS badges are all higher quality. It's also snug in unflattering ways the way I should have known it would be. The replicas really are the way to go, especially as the LAFC replica seems to have the same pattern as the authentic. And I kind of want one of those LAFC shirts. Even with the stupid YouTubeTV logo.

    More vague non-information, but I feel obligated to post anyways. Apparently this guy works on the uniforms for the Madden games. It's interesting that people seem to kinda alternate between whether the uniform is drastically different or not. I was feeling a bit reassured after the new anniversary logo but now I am feeling a bit nervous again. It's going to be a long month.

    Unless things are different in MLS/soccer, I don't believe commercial breaks generate any money for the teams, that goes to the network. The team is already getting paid through their TV deal with their regional sports network and from the league's national TV deals, so having commercial breaks won't mean teams are going to stop having a jersey sponsor. Even if they did, they still aren't going to stop having a jersey sponsor. Look at the NBA and their billion dollar TV deals, yet they still felt the need to add a sponsor patch.

    I'm not convinced that was ever actually a team logo, though. I know it's on the mothership but so are any number of errors.

    That's the curly W's fault, not this logos. The whole identity was designed around the monumental aesthetic that the 2005 primary logo illustrates. The original W cap, as well as the DC interlocking cap logo, fit. The uniforms fit. It all was a fantastic identity. I like the W and I think it's okay that the W didn't really fit the 2005 uniform set.

    As a Lions fan, I thought they low-contrast gray numbers were going to be an issue when they were first unveiled. But after watching a season's worth of games, I don't think they are. Yes, they're lower contrast, but now that everybody watches games on large hi-def TVs, it was never really a problem figuring out who was who. Numbers don't need to be enormous high-contrast block numbers any more. I'm a uniform traditionalist, and I think the uniforms are pretty sweet.

    Indeed. I’m usually a huge proponent of whimsy. But I’ll admit that there’s a fine line between “whimsical” and “profoundly stupid”, and they’ve jumped way, way over it.

    Next up is the Padres. The color scheme is taken from the classic '70s-'80s Padres. The script is a reworking of the script of the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego which is adjacent to Petco Park and one of the big entertainment centers of the city. The sleeve patch is the "All-American City" shield that once emblazoned the helmets of the Chargers.

    I hate when I put in (just kidding) and people take it out. The NBA does lean hard into social justice issues. If that's not your thing I can see how it could be exhausting.

    Minnesota AD: “One of our trucks broke down and all our players have in their bags are pants.” Purdue AD: “We got some weird alternate gear from a few years back you can wear.” Minnesota took just as many unforunate liberties with their school colors as ASU or any other middle tier Power 5 school.

    Now that the new Sacramento Republic has officially unveiled their jerseys, I can finally show everyone what I’ve been up to the last week. Just a bit of background, I've worked for the club for several years now, and I recently got the opportunity to make all of the club’s jerseys both for the players as well as for retail. I've been working my butt off getting these ready, and have heat pressed several hundred in the past few days. With that being said, here they are! It’s so cool knowing that every time I see the team take the field for a match, or see a fan walk around wearing one of of these, that I’ll have had a hand in creating it. Here's a link to some more pictures Also, here's a few looks at the process I went through to create these. I'll try to get a few more pictures up close in the next several days. The sleeves have a watermarked/sublimated star pattern (our beveled star from the logo) which I wasn't too crazy about at first, but have warmed up to since I started this project. I also think the white trim really helps the whole home look pop. I absolutely LOVE the road jersey, too. The hoops are a little generic when it comes to soccer, but it's a great look that harkens back to Republic's original road kit, which was white with tan hoops. The funniest thing to me is looking at the photoshoot pictures and cringing at the little mistakes I made with some of these jerseys (sponsor look not quite straight, crest too far over to one side, wrong sized sponsor patch on a few of them, ect), and knowing that most people, even those on here, will never even notice.

    The juxtaposition of a modern font and traditional uniform compliment each other well. The font isn't too modern like the Jags font to clash with the jersey. I do wish, however, that the numerals weren't italicized and also weren't a standard font. It's Futura Condensed Medium Italic plain and simple. That's an okay place to start, but customize it a little bit and make it your own. I think the Georgia Bulldogs are a great example of that. They took something like Bebas and made it their own without going over the top.

    They would be more acceptable to me if they weren't italicized. The old notion that the jersey number are supposed to remind you of the helmet numbers is pretty much destroyed by the italics. Plus, Rothlisburger wears seven, which is especially goofy looking in the italics, and that's the jersey you see most often. If the idea was that it would look better if the jersey numbers and helmet numbers were the same, it would've been much smarter to change the helmet numbers.
