  1. Hah! Thanks guys, that's so funny about the Owls. They're bad in my save but really got a kick out of thinking they're real As far as the Hammers, I felt like their brand was pretty weak overall and wanted to pitch this concept to you all. The shape is a steel hammer, and the cap logo is an H and an Anvil. As well, here's a flames logo in a roundel which I like more.
  2. This is some good stuff Mark. I can't decide which is the best, the body of work is all top notch!
  3. It's a good start! I would scale up the front and rear so it's more proportionate as a template There's a few small things i've noticed that's not huge, just more realistic. Normally the tires will hide under the sheet metal at the top of the wheel arch. So i'd make your tires bigger but sneak them in. Also I think if you do a squared off black shape to mimic the innards of the car, you don't have to give much detail and it won't look like the wheels are floating. Also :censored: there's so much on that blue print site, i wish i saw that working on a project last year making electric stock cars
  4. Haha thanks guys. Sorry if i came across as a dick posting about the view and reply count, it wasn't my intention. Just noticed it when I went to reply. I've been on the boards long enough to definitely notice that one off good comments get the thumbs up treatment. But always nice to hear feedback from stuff I'm confident in. Totally fair. I wanted to try something else for them and liked the idea of the wordmark, but I can throw it on a circle and dress it up to see if it makes it better. For what it's worth, there was some thinking behind the names of teams. As you can see, KBO teams more or less just pick a mascot that hands off between corporations. But as always, I did some research and found names that match the cities better. But also i made a list of names to possibly draw from in case I didn't find something good (Arrows Owls and Flames are the three) Pohang is known for their steel industry thanks to POSCO being massive Jeju Colts is the island off Korea and they have a specific breed of horses named Jeju Horses Chuncheon is in the north of South Korea and the Crane is the national bird (this is my favorite team) Gunsan has a military base and the home of the SK Air Force As far as the league has gone, the one team not shown has been the best team over the last couple years. When i first expanded the league, I made the mistake of doing an expansion draft, so the two teams coming in got to poach the only players worth while on the teams. It's been nuked over the years but they're still on top. I recently decided to expand from 8 to 12 teams using teams that either formerly existed, or independently exist now. It'll be fun to watch the 12 teams battle it out and possibly develop some talent for me to steal. Oh and if you're wondering what that other team looks like, look no further.
  5. 260 views and 0 replies nice here's all the logos together for no reason other than I wanted to see it.
  6. Sup? I've gotten into playing Out of the Park Baseball again recently. If you don't know, it's like GM mode on a baseball video game that's on steroids, and you don't do the fun parts like actually playing. With KBO coming back before MLB, I decided to start a save in Korea. I've had issues with a thin player pool, compounded by the fact that if a player isn't on a roster, they shrivel up and retire. i wanted to give the players a chance and set up a few teams that hopefully could turn up some diamonds in the rough from good play on an independent team. Being a psychopath, i found every decently sized stadium not being used by a KBO team full time and used that to place my teams. My ultimate goal is to make a brand that could blend in with the current crop of teams. Originally an independent league, I made a split league with the KBO minor league teams since they're at a comparable level. I've expanded real leagues like crazy before, but I love the pure identity of 10 teams playing eachother over and over and over. There's also an 8th team that is a team that folded in 1999, and not worth posting the graphics for. Seoul Owls Mokdong Baseball Stadium 10,500 Pohang Hammers Pohang Baseball Stadium 12,000 Jeju Colts Jeju Ora Baseball Stadium 11,650 Ulsan Arrows Ulsan Munsu Baseball Stadium 12,088 Chuncheon Cranes Chuncheon Baseball Stadium 10,000 Cheongju FlamesCheongju Baseball Stadium 10,500 Gunsan WingsWolmyeong Stadium 12,000
  7. Magic Dynasty pretty much nailed what I was thinking. I don't see Ford letting Briscoe go. Especially with their shallow prospect pool given one of their two flagship teams having a 44 year old, 41 year old, and a (bad) 36 year old. Driver's average peak is at 39, so that's something to think about. Harvick is elite, so we haven't seen the decline quite yet. But hey, Jimmie Johnson was too. Penske could lose Keselowski to Hendrick and easily fill the gap with Cindric. He'll get the jump over DiBenedetto given who his father is. Lastly, Chastain was committed to running Xfinity. Obviously he would have taken the Ganassi ride if he was offered, but remember their current lineup is a 48 year old Kenseth and 41 year old Kurt. HIs time should come, and he might have an Xfinity title run in him. He needs to go out there and win a race shortly, but he's shown he can do it.
  8. In honor of the end of the week, here are some Sunday Alternates I've seen! First, SK Wyverns rebranded over the offseason, but kept their off-white Sunday Alternates that say Incheon, the city they play in. They also wear a black version of their cap. Here's a close up with their previous cap logo. NC Dinos have a gold alternate for sundays too. They wear an alternate cap as well, but it's their regular cap with a gold brim. Samsung Lions commit to looking like Chelsea, with these gradient sash uniforms. They have the cleanest home and road uniforms in the league I think. Finally, LG Twins have a home and road sunday alternate. The home says SEOUL across the front, and the road is just a black version of their main uniforms.
  9. If you're worried about the uniform ads, i have bad news about every team name including the corporation that owns the team. As far as the names in english, they used to have Hangul lettering on the front in the 90s. I think that was to be more marketable overall. Here are some throwbacks Samsung wore last year with it.
  10. Hey all! So with ESPN snagging the rights to the Korea Baseball Organization the day before the season starts, I've gone all in on the KBO. The games are, and i mean this in the nicest way possible, so stupid. No lead is safe and it keeps you watching. The play is good, and the culture is so cool to observe. Check it out on ESPN every morning except mondays, the day they take off every week. As the thread title states, the aesthetics of the league has drawn my attention. All the teams have different suppliers, so they all have their quirks. The jerseys are covered in sponsors as well. A month into the season, we've started to see some one off uniforms start to get worn. Recently, several military themed uniforms have been released and i'd like to share them here now. June 6th is Memorial Day in Korea, June is also Patriots and Veterans Remembrance Month. Descriptions of these are from @myKBO on twitter From June 5th-7th, KBO teams will be wearing the 'Great Patriot Tree' patch on their hats and helmets. Lotte Giants Navy themed uniforms Hanwha Eagles - Black Eagles, a special flight team in the ROK Air Force for this year's military uniform. (Their normal black uniform is black with orange piping) Samsung Lions with a digital Lion in this blue camo Doosan BEars wore a white uniform with white and grey camouflage on the sleeves and hat Then something close to home, here's SK Wyverns wearing green camouflage Ill see the reaction to this thread and circle back and post some normal uniforms and throwbacks i've seen in my research! Also I sent Chris Creamer links to team's vectors on their own website so hopefully the library on sportslogos.net get updated even further.
  11. ^^^I'm glad the Coyotes original designer was able to land on their feet! Just so i follow, it's documented the Tampa Bay Mutiny logo had a bat on it because "you know, mutiny - mutant bat" Is this Pythons because it shares letters with Rhythm?
  12. I would love to see this as a 4D chess play where the city of Nashville sees how well supported the Superspeedway races are, and gives NASCAR a sweetheart deal to fix up the short track at the fairgrounds. I obviously have no basis for what I said, but the contract is for 4 years and that should be enough to completely renovate it and open again.
  13. This is giving me serious Akron Firebirds and Akron Aeros vibes. Imagine the complete lack of nostalgia we'd have now if they went with this logo that would be better suited on deviantart.
  14. It always bugged me that they didn't do a dirt warning track. SInce, you know, there would be no warning if you're tracking a ball in the outfield if the surface is just painted brown.
  15. I thought the same, but I believe they just broadcast the SPOTV broadcast because it has an English score bug.
  16. Nice to see that they went back on it! CPBL also started letting 1000 fans into games and this is what that looks like. Also i am all in on the KBO, but that might just be the Lotte Giants having another big comeback today
  17. Apparently the Twitch streams of KBO are now shut down for the USA which stinks. Same with Eleven Sports' CPBL coverage. Hopefully SpoTV in Korea can variate the teams being broadcasted, only 5 teams are being shown in the first week on ESPN. Games have been fun and the wave of banter i've seen online has been such a fun aspect while everyone has been starved of sports. Started cheering for the Giants because a twitter mutual works for them, and fresh off a last place season(with the highest payroll), they're 3-0 to start and looking solid.
  18. 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.
  19. Simple basketball uniform concept
  20. 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!
  21. 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!
  22. 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.
  23. 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!
  24. 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.
