  1. Loving these all, really unique work across the board. Only criticism is that Orlando is nowhere near a beach and a shell kit doesn't particularly work in this situation.
  2. Simple basketball uniform concept
  3. Yeah that’s fair, it just doesn’t quite translate to much since they’re rolling and long. It’s really more of a “hit you over the head with how simple it is and a child can draw it” depiction of an A mountain that i tried to not copy the Avalanche Stadium Series logo. although! I did try to sneak a reference to the Blue Ridge Mountains in the bulldog’s forehead wrinkles!
  4. In January I was in a rut. I had been at my current job for over 2 years, still officially a Junior Graphic Designer, and had 160 hours of PTO time saved up because the world of Tennis hardly has an offseason. I ended up losing my mind, booking a flight to Asheville, and took a week off work. I drank tons of beer, saw snow for the first time in years, and also UNC-Asheville had a home basketball game vs South Carolina Upstate. UNC Asheville has a bad logo! It's probably what comes up when you google Bulldog Clipart! So I took a few weeks refining this logo idea. My first draft never looked right, and that's because it looks more like a French Bulldog than a traditional English Bulldog. But! I'm at a place where i'm happy with my concept! The bulldog face would be the primary. Then I created a font where UNC and Asheville would be distinct. I created the A logo even though it doesn't fit with the main branding. The idea behind it is that it would make a cool baseball logo, which i tied in with a crest logo for the seal of the college. I'm going to turn this into a Behance project so look forward to some uniforms and photoshops Oh also, Asheville is cool as hell and I got a raise and a promotion!
  5. I’m in Asheville and last night I went to see UNC-Asheville play SC Upstate, a Big South matchup. I’ve seen a bunch of banners around town for the conference tournament being played at the downtown arena. Well as it turns out! The tournament being played is the SoCon, not the Big South! It lead me to what has to be the weirdest conference tournament setup, where the Big South has teams travel to the higher seed on off days to play a conference tournament. What a weird deal.
  6. Hey yall I'm wanting to do a Magic rebrand concept, featuring new logos, uniforms, court, social branding, and all of that fun stuff. I think the Magic haven't had a good brand since they were formed. Frankly, it's hard to do anything strong when your name is an abstract term. In their history, they've used stars, a basketball, and a script. My goal is to play around with those things and come up with a logo that's more dynamic than their current phallic shaped basketball. I had put this concept down months ago. Recently, I had a new idea and pulled up the file I had started on. The idea was to angle the ball up and make an M on the side facing the viewer using the ball seams. However, two throw away concepts on the side of my artboard were worth building off of. Here they are. Option 1: This is a typical 5 point star with some notches taken out to make an M. When i put down the concept, it played with a second shade of blue to punch out the M shape. Now, I simplified the colors, and placed it on my new ball idea. I kept looking at it and felt that I may have stumbled into a decent icon that the Magic have never had. I tweeted this, and half of the replies I got said they reminded them of the Mavericks. Can't have that! Although the Magic were these colors before Dallas, they have been so irrelevant that the Mavs have appropriated the colors. Moving on, I wanted to play around with the colors. I felt like the colors are the least of their problems, and adding orange or something would complicate things in their main mark. Option B: I went with a blue tinted black, and dropped the grey. One comment someone made suggested using a 6 sided star to differentiate from the Mavericks. Well, one of the concepts I had made all those months ago was a 6 sided star, rotated to make a M. Speaking abstractly, the M does sort of look like rabbit ears being pulled out of a top hat. I threw a ball in the middle of the empty space and posted on twitter. I think after making this, the biggest thing is that people would see the Star of David. I don't think rotating it is convincing me otherwise. I want to make a custom script moving forward, and nothing is finalized yet. But before I do that, I want to see what people thought of these so far. I'm open to creating more marks if people have trouble seeing what I see. Thanks!
  7. Thanks for these recent comments everyone! The Mach Mustang came out on the tail end of this project, but could do something similar to the Jaguar ePace Trophy that supports Formula E. VW was on my list but didn’t make my finally photoshop project because they don’t have a true sedan car. Nissan, and Hyundai have my favorite looking electric cars. Honda is included but their car called the Clarity looks a bit trash. then I started getting ads for the Polestar 2, which is a Volvo company who’s cars look like linebackers. They’re brand new and I couldn’t find any great pictures to edit.
  8. Like I said, it's been a long project haha. I believe Ford stopped producing their Fusions too. Tesla is the NAPA car above. I wanted a lot of diversity in the photoshops, but they would be the biggest get if they could get out of their own way. I made a thread of non-graphic ideas if you're interested
  9. This guy gets it! Despite what you may think, Formula E cars run as loud as a regular road car! I’ve been to plenty of NASCAR races, and boy would it be nice to have a conversation during them
  10. Man as cool as that idea that is, I never once made that connection. More of a happy accident. had it been a ford though!
  11. I finally finished a giant project for my portfolio where I photoshopped a bunch of electric cars to look like race cars. I'm posting this here because the first time I ever thought of this concept was after @theflakeband did the same thing in 2015. Since then it's been something i've thought about a lot, watching both NASCAR and Formula E ad nausium. Here's a link to my behance that has everything, if you could throw a like on that i'd appreciate it. Without further adieu, here's some cool photoshops
  12. Hell yeah, loving these so far. Looking forwards to more.
  13. Surprised by the reaction, I thought the name and branding for the Wind Surge blew
  14. Finally the long awaited Phase 3! For this, i was trying to set myself up for Phase 4 while trying to look dated already. I used the trendy color scheme of the time, duel blues and yellow. Although the yellow gets down played majorly. There's the Greek pattern from earlier in a roundel, and a custom script font based on old script logos from the PCL days. The uniforms are pretty basic, but the road uniform is navy. I justify this because teams like the Marlins wore their black jerseys more than the greys to the point where the road jersey identity becomes fluid.
  15. Thanks man, i appreciate the comments. I'm going to revisit it at some point. The font discrepancy was based on the Padres. Just a weird quirk i liked haha. As far as the pointy font for the 90s.... Yes, the BEARS are the team I was talking about. And their Phase 2 logo fits the profile of the Diamondbacks/Mariners script. Rainiers, Buffs, and Beavers are on my list, but the Beavers are lower since they continued to exist until 10 years ago. The Tacoma Rainiers logos consistently weren't great so I want to tackle them
