1 likeDespite the fact I'm not sure ANYONE could possibly be interested by this, I've decided to take some screenshots of different sports graphics packages over the years (overlays, swipes, bugs) and have made collages out of them. The purpose of this thread, I assume, is to show the evolution of graphics packages over the years. My first three examples are of ESPN's various hockey graphics packages. Also, the dating (year-wise) is roughly the exact time frame these packages were used. 1995-1998 1999 (virtually the same as 2000-2004, with the scorebug obviously being the one main difference) 2000-2004
1 likeAfter finishing off my Canadian Premier League series I had the association football itch, so I found the next league to expand and rebrand: the Australian A-League. Much like @raysox did for his A-League series, I reached out to the Expand the A-League twitter account for some help, and have had heaps of it. For now, I'm going with 24 Aussie clubs, to be split between two leagues. I may add 4 Kiwi clubs at the end of the series, but I'm still on the fence with that. Like the CPL series, this will be a mix of rebranded teams, reborn teams, and completely new teams. Below is a map of the planned league, which like most things Australian, is heavily weighted in the Southeast. The first club up, a rebrand of Perth Glory. I wanted a black (purple) swan somewhere in the league, and Perth seemed the perfect fit. the sunburst from the original logo has been demoted to a portion of the wordmark. And the second club, an expansion in Gold Coast. Renowned for its surfing, GC deserves something bright and fun. Curl felt like a perfect mix of soccer and surf. I've got about 9 others logos complete at the moment, but I'll need some help with name/logo ideas for those I haven't done yet. Stay tuned!
