    I whipped up a concept that I think could salvage the current identity. I'm still new to this so be kind!

    After years of threads being Cleve-jacked, one that’s actually about Cleveland gets Rand-sacked.

    I have a good uniform idea for the Cleveland Browns. It's a little rough but it works. Please like my concept. Thank you.

    Well, hello again everyone! Somehow it's been almost a year since I've posted a concept here, and I wanted to come back with something special. For those of you who followed my Little Big League "Brandiosing" of the MLB, this Big Little League is a sister series to that, and it's exact opposite. As I started to want to really focus on making portfolio-worthy concepts, I didn't want to put too much time into a novelty series where I was copying someone else's style. So although that series isn't dead it is on life support unfortunately . (link in my signature if you'd like to check it out btw) But one day I had the idea, what if instead of putting Brandiose into the MLB, I took it out of the MiLB? An un-tackification of Minor League Baseball if you will. This provides an outlet to make fun, unique, non-gaudy minor league concepts where I can showcase my own design style instead of mimic another. The first concept is a new look at Jacksonville baseball, which took me quite a while to finish, but I'm really proud of how it turned out. I'm super excited about the possibilities here, so I hope you enjoy and let me know what team you'd like to see next (along with c&c of course). Thanks guys!

    In a similar situation, in '94, the Yankees switched from polyester to cotton uniforms with disastrous results.

    Sup? It's been a while! Here's what the last 5 expansion teams plus the Coyotes would look like if they were the Original 6. The era I aimed for was the 40s, and everything you see is hand made by me! I have a few more plans for this but C&C is appreciated

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. While I work on the Ravens, here's the LA Rams. My thinking here was to split the difference between the 80's Rams and the 50's Rams, combining bold, modern color blocking with a more retro logo set. Athletic gold returns, complemented by a new dodger blue. The primary is a compromise between their 50's and 60's logo and their current ram head. I also created an LA monogram and a vintage-looking leaping ram logo. Home and road pants could be mixed and matched every once in a while. C+C appreciated!

    The Washington Redskins have to change their name – and no one should ask why. This very word has always been utterly racist, therefore degrading, and historically absolutely unambiguous. Welcome the new Washington Warriors, a team with a name that owner Dan Snyder has suggested in the mid 2000's. Colors remain unchanged – except for black, a supporting color – was dropped. UPDATE: DC Football logo now has a consistent yellow-gold outline.

    Hey guys! I've been following the boards for a while but I wanted to make sure I was content with my design skills before I posted anything. A couple months ago, there was a Portland MLB Expansion thread that caught my attention. I thought that the Herons would be a perfect identity for a Portland baseball team and decided to run with it. I designed a primary heron logo, a secondary featuring a heron in-flight, with the Portland skyline as a backdrop. The custom script is a modified version of Daily Grind, with rose-like accents added in reference to the Portland's moniker, the "city of roses". The uniforms (presented using @rsaline 's excellent template) are inspired by a heron's plumage. The shoulder stripes and pants stripes, both distinctly thicker than traditional baseball stripes, mimic the coloration on a heron's wings. The cap features a gold brim, inspired by a heron's beak. Creating the ballpark, Columbia Field (after the Portland-based company) was a fun experiment. I borrowed elements from AT&T Park, PNC Park, Ebbets Field, among others, and used Portland's Fremont Bridge as a backdrop. If you stare at it long enough, it'll be very apparent that it was somewhat hastily assembled on Photoshop, but hopefully you guys get the idea. I also created apparel, signage, and social media packages, presented using mockups I found online. I tried to give the branding a little bit of a vintage-ish vibe to appeal to Portland's hipsters. If you're wondering why I chose the players I did, it was pretty arbitrary other than Daniel Norris, who seemed very Portland-y to me. Enjoy!

    To be fair, my comment was directed at the teal/white color combination -- not the details of the uniform. You won't find a bigger fan of the Fred Taylor set than me, and I would still have preferred if they'd gone back to it. The Jaguars weren't able to pull off the teal/white look with the previous set due in large part to the black numbers on the teal jersey. Not to mention the two-tone helmet completely taking away from the look. The set before that had the teal flake helmet, which never quite looked black (or teal) -- plus they had that atrocious piping slapped all over the uniforms that still makes me cringe. (I actually hated that set even more than the last set.) You could argue that they have over-corrected a bit on these after going to the extreme with their last uniforms, but I'm okay with it. Simple isn't always a bad thing, and as traditional as it looks, the clean lines are actually quite contemporary. We've seen where trying to be cutting-edge has taken their identity over the past decade. We've also seen what Nike has done to teams who were trying to push the envelope -- our previous set, Tennessee, Tampa Bay, Cleveland, etc.... and no thanks. I don't see people getting sick of these after 2 seasons. People tend to get sick of the trendy, over-designed sets that look dated shortly after unveiling. If anything, I see this as the kind of set that could grow on people given that they choose the right combinations to wear. Again, it goes back to what I said was the misstep of sticking with the black primary. Being minimalist and clean is great, but not at the expense of your primary colors. Now was the time to switch back to teal as the primary set so that you wouldn't have this problem of needing to inject teal and gold into the look. My fear is that we'll consistently see black/white and black/black at home, with the white/black and white/white on the road. I'm still interested in seeing black/teal on the field, but I don't know how often they'll actually wear the teal pants. I had mocked this up prior to the unveiling as something I would have loved to see -- These tweaks would make their uniform absolutely perfect in my eyes --

    As a long time Chicago Bulls fan myself, I'm aware of the fact that most die-hard supporters of this NBA franchise actually want no changes at all – I did it anyway. The main focus was on increasing line width, cleaning up and centering the wordmark properly (still Stymie Becker, Bold) and adding just a tiny notch of modernization to the Bull's head, so that one would easily recognize the mark, but also appreciate the aspect in terms of refreshing the brand a little bit.

    Thanks for the feedback, guys. I tried out all your ideas and the sleeve caps ended up being the only workable option. I'm not sure which one I like better, but I'm leaning toward the original. I'd love to hear it if you have a compelling case for either option. Next up, the Jacksonville Jaguars! The Jags have been around for less than 25 years and have already had several different looks. My goal here was to combine aspects from all of them to create one cohesive identity that could unite multiple generations of Jags fans. There's a lot going on here so I'll break it down. The new primary logo is a synthesis of their past two logos. It keeps the bold lines and movement from the original, with some of the refinements of their current. I threw in an updated shield logo for good measure. Helmets are glossy with subtle teal flakes. Think of it as the midpoint between their current helmets and their '09-12 helmets. Sleeve striping is a modern take on their '95-08 striping. The collars from their past two looks, a distinct and ownable element, return to the jerseys. Jersey numbers are a compromise between their past two number fonts. Modern and sharp, but tasteful and readable. Pants are inspired from their '13-'17 pants. I liked their color distribution, but the execution was a little clunky. Pants striping is consistent with the uniforms. Socks are basically their current socks, adjusted for consistency. Jerseys and pants can be mixed and matched. I put together some of the other options we'd see the most of. I don't usually go for mono black jerseys, but I'd love to see this one once or twice a year. Let me know what you think!

    This story was posted by a robot for s sake. You get that @SportsLogos.Net News is an automated account, right? It posts front page CCSLC news regardless of content. It literally doesn't know whether that story is "political" or not. It's a program running a script. Now as to why the CCSLC ran a story on this? It's a news story in the realm of sports uniform news. Which, as you know, is the site's primary purpose. So Chris wrote a news story for his news site that was relevant to that site's specialization and the forum NewsBot posted a thread about it like it would any other front page story. The idea that we went out of our way to promote a story specifically designed to promote a specific political viewpoint is absurd. You might suggest that maybe we take time to close these threads but here's the thing- moderation talked about it. We considered a number of options for dealing with NewsBot posts for threads that some could see as political and truth be told? We decided censorship- of our own mothership none the less- wasn't cool. Do you want to know a secret though? We mods and Chris? We'd LOVE it if we could talk politics here, or have discussions on the Native team name/logo issue. The reason we ban them is because some people can't help themselves. Some people can't see topics of a political nature without turning into the ugliest sorts of people. That's why we tend to bend our own rules on these matters though, and allow leeway from time to time. The HOPE is that *this* time the discussion will be civil. That *this* time we'll see proof that we can open these topics back up. And every time, every G-ddamn time, we're wrong. This has been a post born out of sheer frustration from a moderator angry that we can't have nice things.

    I think that uniform change in 1996 was an attempt to modernize the popular throwbacks from the 94 season (that they wore in Super Bowl 29) and they went with white pants for the first two years. in 1998 they brought back the gold pants and it looked great. Fun fact about that Garrison Hearst run - I was around 11 years old and at my friend's house watching the week 1 highlights and when they showed this game I EXCLAIMED in my little boy voice, "oh cool the 49ers brought back the gold pants!" This was met first with life-altering silence, and second his older brother said "why do you care what pants they're wearing, f**?" and that's when I learned to keep those thoughts to myself until I found this message board many years later.

    I don't have much to say about this one. I wanted new shirts for my softball team. I love the Big Lebowski and the swinging friar logo. This is what I did with rather than sleeping last night.

    I'm actually working on a concept for the Bucs right now with the same idea -- I wanted to darken the pewter to remove the black. My line of thinking was to completely remove black/silver from the equation. Let the Raiders own that color scheme, especially with the Bucs having a similar identity. I like to tinker with logos before making a concept to establish the color palette I intend to use, and this is what I had come up with. I think it looks great!

    I've done many "Vintage Style College Mascots" and as the NFL season gets started I was thinking of what their logos/mascots might look like if they had been created in the style of Arthur Evans. I don't plan on directly using any mascot/logo looks (college or NFL) that are already out there (example: using Pistol Pete for the Dallas Cowboys). However, I may take inspiration from bits or pieces of them. Over the next few weeks/months I'll be adding my newest iterations, please let me know what you think with your comments and/or likes. First up: Minnesota Vikings

    All they really need to do is get rid of the oversized helmet logo, the chrome facemask, the shoulder yoke, the asymmetrical sleeve logos, the alarm clock numbers, and the blocky panels on the sides of the pants where the stripes should be. That should just about fix things.

    In my opinion, an iteration like this would've been amazing. It felt like a missed opportunity not tapping back into the purple during the 2015 rebrand. I always loved the way that the bright 90's color pallet popped off each other.

    The helmet just feels incomplete or unfinished. The 90's logo would have been perfect. Adding the jet to the new wordmark or helmet logo would have helped.

    I find these comments really annoying. Either say what you think or don't. But don't wait for others to have opinions you won't. And don't root for conflict that hasn't happened yet.
