  1. Hey Everyone, I know it's been a while for updates on this project. That's because I've been busy with the final deliverable for the school pat of the project. I now present to you a promotional animation video for the league. This is basically like a video that would be released to introduce the teams of the league and get it's hype up for starting this summer. Let me know what you think.
  2. Back again with the rest of the realistic mockups. First is Bartolo Colon pitching for the Calgary Engineers Next is Khris Davis lining up with the Saskatoon Prairie Sox Lats is Edwn Encarnacion trotting around the bases for the Oshawa Motion I have also done up promotional league poster featuring the leagues' best superstars. Let me know what you think.
  3. I just recently found out about the ECHL's Norfolk Admirals 3rd jersey that they currently wear and it looks very close to a concept that I did for the Hampton Roads admirals for my ECHL series back in 2015. The Norfolk team didn't adapt the old identity until 2017 so mine definitely predates it. The striping is absolutely identical and the only differences are really the white outlines on the numbers and the chest stripe continues to the back. I'm thinking someone from the team saw my concept online and decided to use it.
  4. Hi everyone, I'm back with some work from the next part of the project, realistic mockups. I've been researching Photoshop more and more and now I am ready to show you guys some mockups of real MLB players in CBL uniforms. I am still learning so give me some feedback on how I can improve these in the future. First up is the $430 million dollar man Mike Trout playing for the Victoria Spirits Next is Mookie Betts in uniform for the Halifax Basking Sharks Last for today is the big man, Aaron Judge in the lineup for the Montreal Poutine
  5. I'm glad to see the feedback on Montreal was very postive. Here are some jerseys to go along with the logos. The home jerseys ia a dark cream color from the logo. The jerseys feature a double piping to make the color scheme really pop. The second alternate jersey obviously stands out and is definitely the most unique jersey in the league. It is a poutine jersey based off of the Rochester Red Wings "Plates" jerseys from a few years ago. It even has brown pants to go along with it. Overall this set was the most fun f any in the league and i hope you enjoy. That does it for new teams for a while, now I will be focusing on putting all of the current things I have into a booklet to present to my instructors as well as a promotional league video. So make sure to stay tuned.
  6. So here we are at our 6th and final team for the time being, and it's a doozy. The biggest trend currently sweeping Minor League Baseball is food based identities. Teams such as the Savannah Bananas, Macon Bacon, and Chicago Dogs have taken on full time food identities and I am personally a big fan. I wanted to do one food identity in this league and I knew exactly which food to do for a Canadian based team in Quebec. I give you, the Montreal Poutine. The logos feature a french fry character holding a baseball bat. It's similar to other food identities but still stands out enough to be original. The colors are yellow for french fries, brown for the gravy, and an off white for the cheese curds. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on this.
  7. I'm back with a couple of team updates. First up is Halifax. This is the one team that I haven't been super satisfied with so I went back and revamped some of the logos. The primary logo uses the cap logo as the main asset along with a new wordmark inside of a shied which is the same shape as the one from the Nova Scotia flag. The new wordmark is more balanced and I think looks much cleaner overall. I also added an extra white stripe to the jerseys. Next update is smaller and is just a slight brightening of the red color for Calgary. I think that this just brightens up the league a bit and fits the city of Calgary better than the darker red.
  8. I am back with the jerseys for Oshawa. I tried out giving the tire the jet stream instead of the ball and while I did like it, I didn't think the wordmark logos looked nearly as good with it so I decided to stay with what I had. The jerseys are a little bit of an old school look with vertical stripes coming from the collar to the sleeve. I think this fits the simplistic logos and color scheme fairly well. The hats are similar to the Blue Jays with a white panel cap at home and a straight blue one on the road. The alternate city jersey is the first of the series to be an old style pullover jersey and goes with a design similar to the old Chicago White Sox jerseys. The City In Motion logo appears on the front and the flag logo on the sleeve. I also included blue pants so that the whole uniform reflects the Oshawa city flag.
  9. The next team to be unveiled is the Oshawa Motion. I know Oshawa may not seem like the best choice for an Ontario city but there are more teams coming after the original 6 so stay tuned. I picked Oshawa as they don't really have much for baseball there and I think it is big enough to support a team. The name Motion comes from the city's history in the auto history and the old city slogan "The city in motion". The logo is a moving baseball inside of a car tire. The colors are blue and white which comes from the Oshawa city flag. The alternate logo is also fro the flag but with a baseball in the center. I plan to use this for a city edition alternate jersey. I'd love to hear your opinions.
  10. Little Update for Calgary. Made the pinstripes thinner and added a blue alternate version with blue pants and white pinstripes. I think this looks much better than the previous alternate. Thanks for the Feedback!
  11. Back again with an update for Calgary. I went back and forth between Engineers and Blue Collars for the new team name but I ultimately went with Engineers because it fit the team uniforms better. Speaking of uniforms, here they are! The home hat is based exactly on that of an engineers hat. The home uniform is the first to use pinstripes in the series and they are extra thick to look more like that of an engineer's outfit. The two new wordmarks appear on the away and alternate jersey which are fairly simple and use some stripes on the arms. The Second alternate is something unique that I tried with just sing pinstripes on the arms and not the whole jersey. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn't. Let me know in the comments.
  12. Very true now that I look more. If you look up a train conductor on google then you get images of conductors and engineers so I was thinking they may both be referred as that. I'm thinking i'll switch up the name in the next update. Thanks for the feedback!
  13. I'm back with another new team. I plan to eventually go back to the Prairie Sox but for now let meet the Calgary Conductors. The name comes from Calgary being the headquarters for the Canadian Pacific Railway. This ties into the brand as the font used for this team is the same as the CPR. The primary features a side view of a old time conductor inside of a C. The logo is simplified to just the C when put on a cap. I decided against a "CONDUCTORS" wordmark as I felt it was too long and that the primary logo would work well on the front of a jersey. Let me know what you think.
  14. I'm back after a small break with the uniforms for Saskatoon. I tried just the S for a cap logo but I personally still preferred the PS. A white cap is included for use with the home and first alternate jersey. The jerseys are the first in the series to feature piping down the front of the jersey and also have a wheat pattern on the arms. The alternate jerseys feature green pants as an option and the second alternate is completely void of white and just uses Saskatchewan green and yellow.
  15. Next team up is the Saskatoon Prairie Sox. Keeping up with the unique team names, I thought that Prairie Sox would be a great name for a team in the prairie province. It doesn't particularly mean anything but it is similar to teams like the Bowie Baysox and the Colorado Spring Sky Sox. The logo is a diamond shape with script team name and wheat stalks along the bottom. The cap logo is a PS with a wheat stalk beside it. Let me know how this looks.
