  1. Is that... wait, actual design critique? I didn't know that was a thing anymore. I thought we are just supposed to declare our hatred for it (or the people who designed it) and move on? Agreed, though - slight changes that help modernize it a bit. The old one feels very "90's tech company" when looking at them side by side now; not something I would've thought before the update. Extra bonus: they kept the core concept of their logo and modernized it without using sans-serif lower case type (which is a win now, sadly)!
  2. It's a hoppin' place on Saturday nights... they have a restaurant in there too, so I think they stay pretty busy. Definitely worth checking out, though! Had no idea you were in SD!
  3. Mentioned briefly earlier, but after visiting their taproom this spring, I learned that their labels are all painted by a local guy in San Diego. Thought that was pretty cool. They're wonderfully detailed and really stand out on the shelves. I could do with something more original than Brothers for the font choice, but it beats the hell out of what they used to put on their bottles). The beer's pretty damned tasty, too. Personal recommendation... if you like porters and coffee, snag this one if you can find it:
  4. 2 more Dribbble invites up for grabs. If anyone wants one, send me a link to your portfolio.
  5. Any news on the Creamer Awards?

  6. @TheOneAndOnlyMau is back at it again this week with some more amazing work -- puck heads rejoice! In just two weeks, you now have 4 new PSDs to play with In the pipeline - some new Elite 51 mockups, more hockey, and some baseball (from myself, @derschwigg, and @Bmac). Shoot me a DM if you want to contribute!
  7. Here's what I would say to this, and it's not to be an ass, I genuinely hope people follow this advice: push yourself to learn Inkscape or Illustrator. It's part of the reason I started the site: being pushed by others here in my early days to improve my work, and thus, skill in the necessary software, is the only reason I have the working knowledge I do today. Without that push, Mockup Arena probably never comes to life Could I create paint versions of the vector templates? Sure. Would it inspire people or push them to continue growing and learning? Probably not. In the spirit of the origin of the site, I'd love to keep it at the PSD/vector level.
  8. For those on the hunt for a hockey mockup, just added the WCH presentation PSD to the site: http://mockuparena.com/mockup-posts/adidas-hockey-sweater-mockup/
  9. Instead of creating a bunch of posts, figured I'd just post everything that was contributed this week. Head to mockuparena.com/library to download all this good stuff for free (for personal use only, obviously)! Big shoutout to raysox and 1andOnlyMau for their great work! If you want to get involved, shoot me a PM. On the docket: Nike's baseball promo shots, and something for hockey. Just not sure what yet Raysox's NuSoccer templates:
  10. This one led me here... which, YAASSS: http://news.nike.com/news/baseball-vapor-elite-uniform (adding to my to do list). Good lookin' out. For everyone's reference, in my humble opinion, the best photorealistic source images are typically larger than 2MB. Some of Nike's football images, for example, are over 10MB. Larger photos = more room for close up manipulation and molding it into a template, which results in a better looking final product.
  11. Welp, it's about neither of those. But thanks for stopping by!
  12. Best guess would be they're on another Nike file. There's not another place the cleats are housed, I believe we just mixed/matched by team for the guide.
  13. It's one of the best, happy to feature it! Sure thing, just send links through the form on the site.
  14. Great - if you can find very high resolution source images, definitely something we can work with.
