  1. anyone with a good player model football template they are willing to share
  2. Honestly what I started realizing when doing logos, anything you can do to minimize the positive space without making it clustered is a winning logo. Usually it means adding shadow, or really thickening the stroke. Its got good bones
  3. Cleveland Americans Probably the easiest out of the eight I have done. This is a simple redesign of the city seal of a waving American flag.
  4. Cincinnati Catfish Another tricky one! Without any thing that I could find on wikipedia I was at a lost to call the Cincinnati team who's flag is consistent of the Ohio River, and a C. Going off the river I searched the fish in the area and came across the Blue Catfish.
  5. Does anyone remember the MVPuppet commercials where Lebron and Kobe were muppets and it was just Kobe making fun of Lebron for his ring total. That was my childhood. Not to mention watching him in the playoffs or Christmas or any other time I watched the NBA. This one hurt for sure,
  6. sounds like the design team at Adidas coming up with the designs for next years All-Star jerseys
  7. Chicago Gangsters With very little to work with, with a very simple flag I decided to name the Chicago team after the infamous gangster Al Capone. With a logo depicting him without his face, because faces are hard . I added the dark grey to give the teams identity more of a gritty feel.
  8. Your half right, It does Loog off but its not the horns its the eye, it doesn't seem menacing in anyway, eyes are tricky. Personally I like to go on this site look at the four main sport leagues and look at every eye on a logo that I think would look best on my logo, or more than one that you could transform into your own eye for the logo. And its not just the eye that makes it. You have to get the right browline to go with your eye and that changes from animal to animal. I would also recommend researching a ram and look at the anatomy of its head.
  9. Idk Wikipedia said the poem was titled The Star Spangled Banner, but it is wikipedia so you might be right. I do know the song was originally a drinking song before the lyrics where changed to the poem, thus creating the greatest national anthem.
  10. Carolina Monarchs There was a lot to work with on this one as Carolina is considered a region. That means I could of chosen either North Carolina's flag or South Carolina's flag. To keep the region in tact I decided to go with Charlotte's flag, yet they had two. One blue with their seal, and one green with a crown. The city is nicknamed the Queen City because it was named after the Mad King George III's queen, Queen Charlotte. The crown that became the logo is a direct reflection of King George's crown on his family crest, with the change of color, hexagon gems to signify Charlotte's other nickname the Hive, and to top it all off the two states in all of its glory.
  11. Don't forget the red uniforms with battle worn silver numbers for the Titans
  12. Buffalo Storm This name was pretty self explanatory to the flag, and especially the weather in Buffalo, with my first hand experience. basics of any Storm logo you will find. Cloud? BOOM! got it. Lightning? Boom! got it. To add a little Buffalo into it I added a lighter shade of the flag blue to the color scheme to give the storm a snow blizzard vibe.
  13. Baltimore Ramparts Baltimore's city flag is one that is derived from their state flag of Maryland. I named this team ramparts because of Fort McHenry. For those who are not US History buffs, This is where Francis Scott Key wrote a little poem called The Star-Spangled Banner". As well ramparts appears in this patriotic poem. The shield shape is the exact one with the flag. It was fun doing two point perspective on illustrator I can tell you that .
  14. Ditto, Whenever I redesign them copper is usually added
  15. Just about to say that, I second this. As well as the PLL's new team the WaterDogs
  16. This was an idea I had back in 2014 during the winter olympics and I have tried to do two other times. Also kind of reinforced by the NBA with their recent city edition uniforms. My idea was what if every NFL team's identity came from their city/state flag. I hope you enjoy, I will start with logos, and finish with uniforms. Arizona Copper Comets The idea for Arizona's name actually proven to be quite difficult. I wanted to do something sun related as the flag is represented but couldn't find a good solution. After a failed logo attempt with the Arizona Flare, I decided to do more research on the state and saw the nickname, The Copper State. As I tried to incorporate copper into the original Flare and now Copper Flares logo I found it was another failed attempt. TBH Comet was't exactly derived from the flag of the state but because Copper Comets sounded good. With the subtle nod to the flag in color and the sun rays coming from the football comet at the bottom, I'm quite pleased where this one ended up. Atlanta Resurgens When I first saw the flag, yet basically just a seal, I fell in love with it right away. Once again I struggled with a name. I wanted to be more creative than call them the phoenix just because there was a phoenix. When I searched Resurgens, confused on the meaning, the definition popped-up as rising from the ashes, hence forth why they put the phoenix on the flag. I decided then and there to keep this one more simplistic than the last one by just redesigning the seal as a logo. When doing the phoenix I saw a great opportunity to add the Atlanta Falcons spark to the logo. I am very satisfied with this one and its tie to the city of Atlanta.
  17. Feel like this opinion is very 50-50. I just see the red helmet as one that went through 4 super bowl losses and also the majority of our famous playoff drought.
  18. Maybe I'm biased, but I've never liked anything about their identity. The only thing I can barely tolerate is their throwbacks.
  19. Its just not happening with how close their recent "update" was. I'd rather have the Falcons, Cardinals, or Pats, get an update because of how outdated it is. Falcons I just don't see them moving on from the uniforms they have rn. Give it another year when they have their entire team rebuilt. Cardinals, it would be a perfect Tims, and Pats will not until Brady is gone. This is all hopeful.
  20. I took it right from a reference, but changes can also be made to it as well.
  21. It is centered, but maybe I can resize the word mark and uncenter it to try and fix that Thank You!
  22. You are absolutely correct, tbh my original idea for the helmet was to find a creative way to get the word mark on one side of the helmet and a number on the other side. This I have seen a lot in college football, but have not seen in the NFL in a long time.
  23. Hi folks, it has been a while... like a very long time. Home from my first semester of college I got this idea for a Bills logo that tied more into the roots of Buffalo Bill Cody, the namesake of the team. When I "finished" the logo, something felt off. The balance just isn't quite right, like the 1960 I snuck in there was empty space before hand but now I feel like it needs a white outline like the rest. When I do feel like the logo is finished, I will do a uniform set, along with a field design, and maybe consider making this a NFL Redesign thread.
