  1. The newest baseball template from Nike doesn't have all the goofy seams and nonsense If anything, they'd be smart to build off of this template. Which knowing Nike means they'll find a way to not.
  2. Football - Ever imagine what the Cleveland Browns would look like with a super modern flair? Well now you can! Since they debuted the pointy stripe on the helmet, I felt that would be a good place to start to get away from the catalog look. With the motion of the logo, which isn't a lot I grant you, felt like enough to engage in stripes that come onto the chest of the jersey. Before that, the pointy helmet stripes I reference exist on two different shells, orange and brown. Full BG with Falcon on the orange helmets, just the Falcon on the brown. Like I mentioned, big sweeping stripes on the chest. Number font started as Agency, with serifs to match the Bowling Green wordmarks. Pants have the stripe coming up from the bottom of the pants. Hockey - I definitely didn't want to screw too much with these. Bowling Green already has a pretty good uniform set as it is. Biggest change is that the stripes on the sleeves are pointed like the football uniforms. I also dropped the college wordmark treatment and replaced it with the full logo on the home and away and just the falcon on the alternate. Pants have the pointed stripe in the same manner as football. Socks have the same stripe as is on the hem. Baseball - Baseball ended up working a lot like football, minus the stripes coming all the way on to the chest. Before that, a few options for headwear. I couldn't decide which version of the brown hat I liked the most, so I kept them both because it's college and why not? Also added a white paneled option. Jerseys have the stripes like I mentioned, script Falcons on all three of the jerseys. Pants have the stripes coming up from the bottom like everyone else. Basketball - For basketball, I went with a similar stripe to the hockey hem stripes around the neck and arms, with the pointy stripe down the sides of the jersey. Did a number sandwich with the wordmarks on the home and away, script falcons on the orange jersey. On the shorts I did the same pointy stripe coming up from the bottom combined with a stripe that wraps around the back of the shorts. C&C welcome! Hawaii has two good identities, both the current and the Rainbow. But honestly, I prefer them in the Warrior identity. Nothing against the Rainbow logo and uniforms, which I like as an alternate, used sparingly throughout various seasons, but I don't think that it's their strongest identity. Who knows though, could be another concept for another day.
  3. Drop the handle from the design, and it's 10x better.
  4. I can't remember the last time I saw an MLL game on ESPN. If anything they'd probably be an ESPN3 relegation. Though IIRC, CBS Sports had the MLL contract.
  5. just an idea, what if the "Winter" was colored with the gradient it's currently outlined in?
  6. Football - One of the most unique identities in college sports gets a bit of a makeover with bits and pieces borrowed from different eras. The helmet, has been the same design for as long as I can remember, with the H logo on both sides. I really considered doing what they had done this past season, with the H on on side and the islands on the other. I tried it, didn't like it in the end. Black and green matte helmets. Jerseys have "racing-stripe" shoulder designs, with a sublimated Polynesian pattern design in it. HAWAII on the chest, same number font as years past. Pants have the Colt Brennan-era diamonds on the pant leg, with the H logo on the hip. And of course, the Rainbow Warriors throwback jersey. Hockey - Hockey really borrowed a lot from football because there really isn't much of hockey in Hawaii history. So the Polynesian stripes go from collar to end of the sleeves. H logo on the chests of all 3 jerseys. Diamond pattern stripes on the hem. Same diamond pattern on the left legs of the pants. Socks have the same Poly stripe minus the actual pattern. There are two pant options, black and green. Rainbow Warriors fauxback joins the group as well. Baseball - On the diamond, pullovers and racing stripes are all the rage here. Two hats, green/black and black/black with the H on the front. Jerseys have the same style stripes as errybody else. Hawaii on the chest, number found underneath it. Pants have the diamond stripes on left leg. Black pants make for a black-out alternate option. Rainbow Warriors option for them as well. Basketball - For basketball, Poly stripes on the shoulders. HAWAII on the chest. Pants have the triangle stripe on the waistbands, Diamonds on the left legs. I saw that basketball IRL does have their own rainbow style jerseys, but I instead went for the fauxback route to keep things consistent with everyone else. C&C welcome!
  7. Football - After going through what feels like a bevy of one-off uniforms throughout the last couple years, it was time to nail down a good look for the Jayhawks. Using the pants stripe from the past uniforms as the starting point, that's where we begin. Helmets are blue and red, with the KU logo on both sides. I retired the white helmet, since their rivals have a silver helmet and have been using a white helmet a bit more now. Jerseys have the stripes on the sleeves, Kansas on the chest, Trajan numbers underneath that. Pants have the bold stripes on the sides. Alternate jersey is red, with script Jayhawks replacing Kansas. Hockey - The club team currently utilize white jerseys that are too red heavy, and I can't tell if they currently use red or blue as their color jersey. That being said, changes were made. Stripes on the sleeves and the hem match what is used on the football uniforms. I used the whole Jayhawk logo on the home and away jerseys, with the KU on the shoulders. Pants have the same stripe down the side, KU on the front of the pants. Alternate red jersey has the script logo on the chest, with the Jayhawk logo under it. Baseball - I had a few different ideas in mind, but I ended up going with the more classic of the options. I stuck with the button down jerseys, with arched Kansas on the chest. The team currently puts the Jayhawk head on the chest, in place of a number. I liked it, thought it was unique and stuck with it. Stripes on the sleeve echo the other two sports. Hats have the full bodied bird, on either a blue/red hat, or a white-paneled front hat. Pants have the same stripe down the side. The Jayhawks felt like a stirrups team, so you see those present. Alternate jersey uses the same script treatment as the hockey jersey. Basketball - Probably the best known sports team on campus, I wanted their uniforms to feel like they're a part of this unified look, but also keep their unique look. So I went back to what I consider their quintessential uniforms, at least the uniforms I most closely associate with them, which actually worked in well with the new look. Split the stripe in half around the neck, arms and at the bottom of the shorts. Arched Kansas on the home and away jerseys, with the number underneath. On the back from top to bottom is Jayhawk head, arced name, and number under all that. Shorts have the full stripe on the waistband, on the left side, the KU logo and on the right, the Jayhawk head. Red alternate, though seldom seen at least during my research, gets the script on the chest, with the number in the same place as the Jayhawk head on the other uniforms. C&C welcome!! Not going to lie, I honestly didn't know that. That's actually really interesting, and I wish I knew that when I designed them. Glad you're enjoying the series!
  8. Football - I might be in the vocal minority on this, but I do not like the move back to the Run-DMC era uniforms. They look too much like Oklahoma to me. So largely a return to the previous set of uniforms. Helmets stay glossy cardinal and white with the Razorback logo on both sides. Jerseys have the tusk design that terminates toward the back of the uniforms. Big change here is the use of Arkansas on all the jerseys. Pants have the tusk design down the sides. At the same time, I also wanted to make Arkansas not look like Alabama, and as such, there is the black uniforms. Hockey - I really wanted the tusk design to work down the arms kind of Flyers style, but it ended up not really working out how I wanted it to so the stripes go from collar to the end of the sleeves. Big solid color hem, Razorback on the chests. Tusk stripe on the side of the pants. Socks have a big stripe on them. Alternates are borrowed straight from the club team, with vintage white replaced with real white and the baseball A on the chest. Baseball - A lot like football, with the tusk on the sleeves and down the side of the pants. Used the slanted wordmarks on these, numbers under the chest. Solid color socks, one main hat/helmet: red and red with the A on the front. Alternate is a black out. Baseball - In keeping up with the simplicity, the basketball uniforms really don't see much change. Just in the shorts with one tusk being used. Not a whole lot really to say C&C always welcome and appreciated!
  9. Only thing I don't like about it is the down and distance marker on the field. Not quite the most legible.
  10. I've always been fascinated by what goes into heraldry, but never really looked deep into it. On that note, does anyone know of a "Heraldry for Dummies" for someone like me?
  11. I definitely thought about it. But it felt more like a BP jersey with the WKU logo on the front. I'm definitely glad I put the script together. Sounds fair enough so I'll meet you a bit in the middle. Home and away gets the stacked wordmark treatment. Alternate stays the same.
  12. You might have noticed the new logo and username change. As well as my former username served me for the last 10 years, I felt that as I am a year away from graduating, it was time to really streamline my online personas, as well as just trying to have a more professional outlook across the board. Football - For me WKU is a red, grey and white team. I think it looks better than the black currently used by the team. The current uniforms are just really plain to me, which there isn't anything wrong with, but I think there are better options. First off, dumped all traces of the chrome helmets. No more of that nonsense. White and grey helmets, with the towel (?) waving logo on the sides, triple stripe down the middle, red facemasks on both. Rather than go straight back to the Colts-style uniforms, I went with something close to Oregon State's previous uniforms, but not quite the same. Grey collars on the home/away. Went to a more "traditional" number font. I don't remember what my rationale was for on the pant stripes looking how they do. On my hand-drawn sketch, that's how they came out and I went with it. Hockey - Much like Tulsa, WKU doesn't have much of a hockey presence on campus. So the result was a pretty safe set of uniforms, that fit in with the theme. Stripes on the hem and the sleeves, as well as smaller stripes around the shoulder yokes. Towel logo on the chest, numbers on the sleeves. Pants have a slightly cut stripe on the sides, socks match the hems. Two helmets, for mixing and matching if wanted. There's also a grey set of pants, which i'll admit is close to white, but this is (imaginary) college hockey, let's have some fun with it. Baseball - WKU baseball currently, at least according to my research, uses the Walgreens World Series Champion Nationals W on top of a baseball logo. As cool as that might be, I scrapped it to better fit in with the theme. Two hats/helmets, red/grey and a white front panel/grey, both with the Towel logo on the front. Jerseys have the stripes on the sleeves, and down the placket as well. Created a script logo I thought worked for the team. Pants have a whole triple stripe down the side, along with striped socks Basketball - Of all the teams, the basketball team has a pretty good existing framework I could work in, so there wasn't a lot of change TBH that went into this one. Biggest changes were the changing of black to grey, WKU rather than the stacked Western Kentucky number sandwich, and the addition of side stripes on the jersey and shorts. C&C welcome!
  13. Changing the logo does seem like a big jump, but I could see a lot of other teams following the Mavs in retiring his number. Sidebar, didn't know Jerry West didn't want people knowing he was the inspiration for the logo.
  14. I totally get how you're feeling. Don't worry about this, worry about you and get yourself back into the mindset and find the passion again. Your stuff kicks ass. Find that passion again and come back when you're ready
  15. Football - Tulsa jumped ship to Adidas and ... that's really all that can be said about that. They admittedly cleaned things up going from a templated mess with Nike to a simpler, less mismatch look. What I tried doing was keeping that simpler look with a more Tulsa vibe. My goal was to maximize blue and gold and use red mostly as a trim color. So on the helmet, I brought back the stripe to more prominence, kept the classic Tulsa script on the sides of the helmets. White helmet is an alternate option. Jerseys now have the same stripes on the sleeves. I found a new font I thought worked well for the number font and compliments the script well. No alternate jersey, the gold didn't work for me as the alternate. Three options for pants, all with the same stripe down the side. Hockey - Tulsa currently has zero hockey presence on campus - varsity or club. So i went down a traditional path, with a classic stripe on the sleeve/hem combo. For logo, I went with the full Hurricane flag + Script combo for the home/away. One set of pants, blue with the stripes down the side, Hurricane flag logo on the front. Gold helmet goes with the home and away, but could see some appearances with the alternate. Socks have the same stripes as the jersey. this time, the alternate works as a gold jersey, with the only major difference being the TU logo becoming the chest logo and a blue helmet option. Baseball - The revival of Tulsa's baseball program in jersey from comes with a pretty consistent look from the other sports. One hat and helmet combo, blue/gold with the hats having the TU logo and the helmets having the Script. Jerseys have the script as the main logo, large stripes on the sleeves. Name and Number on the back. Pants have the stripe down the sides. Alternate is a gold rush uniform, with the TU logo on the left, number on the right. Basketball - For these I used a lotta bit from the current uniforms, namely the small striping around the arms, collar and at the bottom of the shorts. I borrowed a peripheral idea from the 2000's era uniforms from when Tulsa made it to that year's Elite Eight and the uniforms had a funky side panel striping thing going on and so I used about 8% of that idea and had the stripes cut at an angle on the home and away. Hurricane Flag logo on the sides of the shorts, Script logo on the chest of the home and away. Alternate gets a bit more traditional, with the TU replacing the flags, and the jersey stripe meeting the armhole instead of being cut at an angle. C&C welcome as always!
  16. Dropping the pattern from the collar would go a long way on those jerseys IMO
  17. According to the Gridiron Uniform Database, 2017 was the first year of the two stripe jerseys.
  18. And for one offs, I personally like it. When it begins to creep into every-game uniforms, then I riot.
  19. I'm literally not arguing anything you have brought up by you on the matter of the Stars Home jersey by posting a gif of Shia Labouf clapping rather aggressively in response to something I found funny. I wish you well on this crusade sir, a crusade you continue to insist upon.
  20. Now that you mention it, the Stars away jersey completely rips off the hem stripe on the Habs away jersey!
  21. I won't laugh at your opinion, but I can't agree with these being better than the regular Avs jerseys. I do think that the A shouldn't extend into the collar. I think it looks odd for lack of better terms.
  22. And yet I don't see this as O6 Dress up. Especially when you compare the white jerseys: Now this: This feels a lot more like something you could call O6 dress up. Granted Phoenix/Arizona has since changed uniforms.
  23. Is anybody else having an issue where they're signed in and then for instance, go to a post in Concepts and then back out and all of a sudden I'm logged out?
  24. New Year, Definitely Not New Me. Football - One of the most traditional and recognizable set of uniforms, well, stays that way for the most part. The traditional home uniform stays as it is. Gold bucket, white jersey, gold pants. Stripes stay the same. I had the idea to take the stripes off of the cuffs, but it looked very wrong. The not seen super often purple uniforms also don't change a whole lot, if at all. They wouldn't normally be paired with the white helmet and pants, but I like the color balance they bring, especially in this picture. Also the stripes on the helmet and pants match the rest of the uniforms now. Now, possibly the controversy. I LOVED the helmet that came with the 1918 Silent Season uniforms. The color shifting helmet was too cool to not include as a once-a-season type thing. If the whole 1918 uniform couldn't stay, the same uniform color combo could. I wouldn't imagine such a combo being worn more than once a year, just a fun deviation from the norm. Oh, I know that the skinny font they've been using has been a point of conversation/controversy, but I kept it around and added it to the rest of the sports. To me, it fits the overall scheme of LSU. Hockey - Since hockey at LSU doesn't have as much of the tradition and heritage as the other sports, I felt that more liberties could be and should be taken. Hence, the shoulder stripes that mimic the football uniforms. Drag and dropped the football helmet logo onto the chests of the jerseys, underneath a tie-down collar. Second set of stripes lower down the sleeves, hem stripe follows the curve of said hem. Pants have the stripes down the side, with the eye logo on the front. Alternate uniform is gold, and borrows the script from the baseball team in place of the LSU above the Not-Toonces. Baseball - A team with what seems like just as much tradition as the football team, sees possibly the most change. Where it didn't change is in the hat and helmets, with the same LSU monogram they've used for years on an all purple hat/helmet. On the home whites, kept the pinstripes around, added some stripes to the arms. Used the Tigers script on the chest. Pants also have pinstripes and stripes down the side. Striped socks as well. I never liked the font the baseball teams use. It just didn't work for me. I replaced it on the purple and gold jerseys with the script font. Stripes on the sleeves, alternate pinstripe-less pants with the stripes down the side. Purple striped socks and an alternate gold option as well. Basketball - I like the classic feel the current basketball uniforms have and so I made minor tweaks to make it fit the new(ish) identity. Basically added the triple stripe to the arms and collar, down the sides of the uniform and onto the shorts. Hem stripe has the triple as well, along with on the bottom of the shorts. LSU on all three jerseys, new number font underneath it on the front. Not much to really say about these. C&C welcome!
