  1. OK but why did I read that with Gru's voice from Despicable Me.
  2. LOL I remember requesting that design when he was doing his redesign thread awhile back. I was going to school at the Ohio University - Zanesville campus for a year when he made it. I like how they didn't even crop the design itself.
  3. Hey all! It's been a minute since I've posted anything around here. Awhile back, I released a 2D Photoshop template of Nike's Vapor Untouchable uniform complete with three helmet views, two sock variations, and three pants options. That was about three years ago (!) and I figured it was time for the next step and bring the template to Illustrator. Below is an example of the new template in action, recreating the 2019 Oregon State Beavers home uniform. I've also included previews on what the templates look like once you open them. The Illustrator is based on Nike's uniform presentation on their website, while the Photoshop template remains relatively unchanged with the jersey being 'flat' and based on several older, similar templates. You can download either the Illustrator or Photoshop templates at the links. Feel free to open them, explore the layers, and let me know what you think as this is my first-time creating an Illustrator template. Illustrator Template Preview: Photoshop Template Preview
  4. Just down the street from my apartment, Tennessee Tech revealed their new uniforms today: Below is the Golden Eagles's look from last year. Personally, I'm not a fan of the change. The last set wasn't too fancy, but it worked. The new set already looks dated by comparison, the #WingsUp on the bumper is tacky (At least just put WINGS UP and be done with it), the small sleeve stripes are useless
  5. And as a Muskingum alum, I have to add GO MUSKIES. Gotta agree on the JCU update. The old one wasn't great by any means, but could've easily been refreshed like this: (shameless plug)
  6. Slight update for the Muskingum University Muskies (DIII - Ohio Athletic Conference) under new head coach Erik Ieuter and AD Steve Brockelbank. The team replaced the old football-specific, beveled, and over-shadowed MU logo for the athletic department's actual logo. Before: After:
  7. Hence why I said "or the light blue jersey + black pants combo". Both that and the combo worn against Pittsburgh are light-light-dark. The light blue jersey doesn't contrast enough with a white jersey
  8. I've been fighting myself trying to figure out why I like this set and I think I figured it out: they're playing Pittsburgh. The dark-dark-light color palette of Pittsburgh's home uniform contrasts with Carolina's light-light-dark setup. Pair this combo or the light blue jersey + black pants uniform against the Patriots' away look or anyone else with dark pants, and it doesn't work.
  9. That's too bad, but it seems like the company's been heading in that direction since dropping the handwritten-style font for the newer, cleaner, bolder font. ]lthough the only time I've used GoDaddy has been through my work's email system, I'll always remember the GoDaddy Guy though his involvement in motorsports over the years:
  10. It's only a matter of time until Vine references get twisted into play calling.
  11. Wrapping things up here in the OAC with Mount Union, John Carroll, Capital, Marietta, and Wilmington! -------------------------------- MOUNT UNION PURPLE RAIDERS Before: After: Purple metallic helmet with a slightly-oversized R logo Sword from the R appears on the jersey sleeves Single-color pants stripe on all pants options -------------------------------- JOHN CARROLL BLUE STREAKS Before: After: Kept the cross on the sleeves, left the helmet blank. If any team can pull off the classic look, it's JCU. New lighter blue applied to the uniform, JCU logo on the chest Added blue and white pants options for home, with the bolt pants stripe giving the uniform a modern flair. -------------------------------- CAPITAL CRUSADERS Before: After: Went a little Michigan State-esque with this one, using tapered striping on the helmet and pants. More-standard block font replaces the MSU ripoff Shoulder loops replaced with a sublimated, oversized primarily logo -------------------------------- MARIETTA PIONEERS Before: After: Brick pattern inspired by the historical city of Marietta, being the first settlement in Ohio, and the College's brick-and-mortar architecture *Gag* Oversized helmet logo stays, silver helmet becomes the only helmet Blue home pants option added -------------------------------- WILMINGTON QUAKERS Before: After: Wilmington has a mess of a uniform; It's like three different uniforms in one. Time for that to change Satin Lime helmet at home, white helmet on the road. Sleeve Striping forms a W for Wilmington Number font closely resembles the new logo --------------------------------------- And that concludes my Ohio Athletic Conference Concept Series! Thanks to all my fellow OAC alumni who have followed along and supported the series. As for my next football series... How about some MACtion?
  12. Guess who's back, y'all! With a long weekend and I'm now settled into my new apartment (now with WiFi!), the series continues with uniforms! OHIO NORTHERN POLAR BEARS Before: After: Made orange the primary color Adjusted the jersey striping to make it a complete stripe and removed the Oklahoma State-esque notch Applied the new stripes to the pants and helmet Polar Bear head replaces the ONU lettering on the helmet. ------------ Heidelberg Student Princes Before: After: Kept that sexy-AF metallic orange helmet Jersey striping based on the cape in the new Heidelberg logo Pants Striping inspired by the Heidelberg Clock on The Berg's Campus ------------ BALDWIN WALLACE YELLOW JACKETS Before: After: Emphasized sleeve striping rather than the shoulder loops (You'll see why in the next team) New Stinger logo appears on the helmet Added brown and white pant options ------------ Otterbein Cardinals Before: After: Slight update to the logo, replacing the yellow beak with old gold to match the uniform Gold helmets, pants, and drop-shadow numbers return No more wordmark on the pants or Oregon "O" on the helmet ------------ Muskingum Fighting Muskies Before: After: The school's "Long Magenta Line" saying plays into the creation of this uniform, as a literal long magenta line stretches across the chest of the jersey. Muskie appears on its own on the helmet Added a magenta pants option ------------ Up Next: Wrapping things up with Marietta, Mount Union, JCU, Wilmington, and Capital.
  13. Tegna's whole brand is a black and white TEGNA wordmark so it's not surprising they're applying that same minimal appriach to their local affiliates. I still get emails for job opportunities in the Charlotte area (I should probably unsubscribe from them seeing as how I found a job elsewhere...).
