  1. Nice start!

    The D'Backs set looks really solid, I think this is the colourway they should go for. I like the retro-modern approach you've used for the Cooperstown Collection, I think the idea is more interesting than what Nike planned.

    I can't wait to see the 29 remaining designs!


  2. After a short halt, it's time to move on to Kansas City!

    For the Royals I decided to go for a gradient as main design element, a design resource often used by sport brands nowadays, specially by Nike. The gradient pattern goes from the classic baby blue, a colour linked with the team's history, to the royal purple, seeking to show, in a modern way, the royalty vibe the club have.

  3. Moving up to Washington DC!

     

    For the team from the capital city of the United States I wanted to go a very American and patriotic path. Therefore, the uniform uses the 13 stripes from the flag on each sleeve, as well as the white stars on navy for the socks.
    The design is complete with 3D styled logos and numbers, a nod to the Washington Senators uniforms of the 1950s, originally created by @MJD7.

  4. Moving to Arizona!

     

    When it comes to the Diamondbacks, there's no easy path. Even after Nike's takeover and the unveiling of their new and tweaked uniforms, the team still has a problem: they can't descide between sand or teal as tertiary colour. But, given the club's original look, and Nike's current design trends, I have decided to go for the first.
    The DBacks design features the "New Orchid" purple shade, using teal for the details and logos, as a modern tribute to the team's roots and their 2001 World Series.

  5. Time for the Yankees!

     

    The Yankees are one of the most difficult teams to approach to when it comes to special edition designs such as this Statement Series. They’ve been using almost the same design for more than a hundred years, and it has become the most iconic and distinct look in baseball; their fans love it and their rivals fear it.
    This design tradition is probably the main reason why the Bronx Bombers remain one of the few teams without alternate jerseys. 
    Nonetheless, in 1996 the team found an alternative, going for a 1934 throwback Black Yankees design. That is why I have decided to bring back that iconic look, with the "Yankees" wordmark on the front, a navy blue melange pattern, and simple white piping, as well as a navy cap with white soutache.

    The Brewers look great! Any chance you could raise the numbers a bit to where they usually would be?

     

    Sure thing!

    I like the idea, but I'm not really feeling these. 

     

    What if you tried a script that resembled an actual beer label? It's not something I'd recommend for a regular look, but it'd be great for a project like this.

     

    Do you have any specific idea/example in mind? Mimicking a beer label was something I thought about, but ended up ditching it in order not to lose the team's identity.


  7. Moving up North to Wisconsin!

     

    The Milwaukee Brewers have one of the more unique identities in the Majors. It's not only a distinctive name and branding, but it's also strongly linked to the city of Milwaukee, its community and the famous local brewing industry.

    Therefore, beer has to be the element this concept focus on. At first, I thought about using a semi-realistic beer glass look for the design, but it looked to close to those gimmicky uniforms you can see from time to time in the MiLB. That's why in the end I decided to go for a more simplistic look, using just off-white and atheltic gold to mimmick the beverage look, partly inspired by the USMNT "popsicle" away kit. I've also decided to use the "Brew Crew" wordmark, often used by ballboys and other team staff, to complete the link between the design and the beer inspiration:
