  1. Happy birthday and great job on the series, it's been a pleasure to follow along. Since I'm from Croatia, Zagreb was my most anticipated team and I like the concept but I do have some minor issues. I love the concept of the team and the logo (by the way great job on the "R" and "P", it worked out nicely). I'm also kinda tired of the checkerboard design but I do feel that given the context it would fit better on the flag. And I have to fix a grammar mistake, it should be: CENTIMETAR PO CENTIMETAR although I don't think I ever actually heard anyone say that phrase ever. We would say MIC PO MIC which means something like "slow and steady" or "baby steps".
  2. All of these are fantastic but New Orleans is my favorite so far. Great series, keep it up.
  3. It always bugged me a little bit that the top and the bottom of the "d" on the original logo wasn't symmetrical. It never occured to me that it could form a Z. As far as pitching a new logo to the club goes, I'm not a graphic designer (just a guy with a lot of free time on his hands) so I wouldn't know how one would even go about doing something like that but I agree that it would be cool.
  4. Thank you. Yeah, it's hard to come up with something new for Dinamo and Hajduk that doesn't include a checkerboard. Oh and Juve was an inspiration for Dinamo for sure.
  5. Yay, we made it! Here's a recap of all the logos and kits: Thank you all for liking, commenting and following. I hope you had fun following along. I sure had fun making this concept and I'm really happy with the end result.
  6. NK Šibenik was founded in 1932. The club played 1. HNL for 12 consecutive years, from 1992 until 2003. They returned to 1. HNL in 2006 but were relegated to 2. HNL in 2012. Since then the club has played 2. HNL and 3. HNL. Currently, the club is in 1st place of 2. HNL and will probably be promoted to 1. HNL at the end of the season. The club's historic colors are orange and black.
  7. NK Varteks Varaždin was founded in 1931. under the name NK Slavija. The name Varteks was adopted in 1958. after a local tailoring company (VARTEKS - VARaždin TEKStil) became the main sponsor of the club. Since then the clubs nickname is "The Tailors". Varteks played in 1. HNL since it's beggining in 1991. until 2012. when they got into serious financial troubles and were relegated to the lowest tier (7. HNL). As a result of that, hardcore supportrs of the club founded their own club under the same name. (NK Varteks) In 2013., after some, in my opinion, really shady politics between the Croatian Football Federation and the club's new management, now renamed Varaždin Škola Nogometa (Varaždin School of Football) started playing 3. HNL. In 2015. the club changed it's name to NK Varaždin and are currently playing 1. HNL. NK Varteks (the supporters club) is currently playing 3. HNL. For this concept I'm combining the two clubs under one name again. The new logo should be kinda obvious with the whole tailor thing. The kit colors are the historic colors of the club.
  8. Mladost Sigetec was founded in 1949. They are a local amateur club (their field is less than 200 meters from my house) and are currently playing in 5. HNL which is the highest division the club has ever played. Their nickname is "the blue-whites". There are a lot of clubs named Mladost in Croatia so I decided to change the name to just Sigetec. (Although some would say that I couldn't come up with anything to incorporate the letters M and S, don't listen to them) The inspiration for the logo and the home kit came from an old pin from the 25th anniversary of the club. The away kit is based on a beautiful yellow shirt the club was wearing about 15 years ago. (I don't have a picture but I remember it very well.) Fun fact: The club's current logo was made by me 10 years ago.
  9. NK Osijek was founded in 1947. It is one of the four clubs that have never been relegated from 1. HNL along with Dinamo Zagreb, Hajduk Split and NK Rijeka.
  10. Slaven Belupo was founded in 1907. They have been playing in 1. HNL continuously since 1997. Slaven Belupo is the most successful club in the history of the UEFA Intertoto Cup. The 2nd most successful soccer club in Koprivnica is NK Koprivnica which is essentially Slaven Belupo's B squad. For this concept I'm combining the 2 teams under one name. The city of Koprivnica is the capital of the Podravina region who's main symbol is the rooster which was the inspiration for the new logo.
  11. Aaaand we're back. Hajduk Split was founded in 1911. Along with Dinamo Zagreb it's the most successful and the most popular soccer club in Croatia. Hajduk has been playing in 1. HNL since it's beginning and has 6 league titles. Hajduk's traditional home colors are white shirt, blue shorts and blue socks which symbolizes white sails on the blue sea. The away shirt traditionally has red and blue vertical stripes but I decided to go with gray which has been used as the 3rd kit in recent years. I should also mention that Hajduk is my favorite soccer club.
  12. Marsonia was founded in 1909. During the early 1990's and 2000's the club played in 1. HNL. Currently, Marsonia is playing in 3. HNL.
  13. NK Rijeka was founded in 1946. They have been playing 1. HNL continuously since it's beginning in 1992. In 2017. Rijeka won it's first ever league title ending Dinamo Zagreb's run of 11 successive titles. I like their logo, I just brushed it up a bit and removed some things and obviously recolored it. Not my most creative work but I think it will do.
  14. NK Zagreb's exact year of foundation is unknown. Over the years they have been merging with a lot of different clubs. In 2002. NK Zagreb won 1. HNL becoming the first club to do so other than Dinamo Zagreb or Hajduk Split. They have been playing 1. HNL continuously until 2013. when they were relegated to 2. HNL. Due to financial troubles over the past few years the club has relegated down to 4. HNL in which they are playing today. Their logo is based on the historical crest of the city of Zagreb. I like their logo so I didn't change much, I removed the name and the ball and modified the shield a little.
  15. NK Istra 1961 was founded in 1948. under the name NK Uljanik. Until the beginning of the 2000's they were in the shadow of their city rival NK Istra who played 1. HNL in the 1990's. Confused? Yeah, you should be. The club changed it's name numerous times over the years. The club is playing in 1. HNL since 2004. with only 2 years playing in 2. HNL. NK Istra by the way are currently playing 5. HNL. The new logo is a modified crest of the city of Pula.
  16. Segesta was founded in 1906. after a 13 year old student received a new leather soccer ball for having good grades in school. Segesta is one of the oldest soccer clubs in Croatia. During their long history they never changed their name. During the 1990's the club played in 1. HNL and are now playing in 4. HNL.
  17. NK Zadar was founded in 1945. Under the name Zadarkomerc the club was one of the founding members of 1. HNL in 1992. In 2001. the club changed it's name back to NK Zadar. The club played 1. HNL from 1992-1999, from 2001-2005 and from 2007-2015. Due to financial difficulties the club faced relegation and is currently playing 3. HNL.
  18. Cibalia Vinkovci update The logo was updated based on feedback from vtgco.
  19. Hvala na pohvalama, drago mi je što ti se sviđa. Da, šahovnica je super ali stvarno ne mora biti na svakom grbu.
  20. Thank you, hope you enjoy the rest of the series. It is, I stretched it a bit because it was too flat for me. I'm happy with how it looks so I'll keep it as it is but thanks for the feedback. The shape of the shield was inspired by the logo of Dinamo Vinkovci so it didn't occur to me to do a different style shield but I went ahead and did a rounded shield version and I like it even better so I will be updating Cibalia with the rounded shield logo. Great feedback, thank you. I tried that and it doesn't look good but this could work as an alternate version: I guess something like that could be done but that "d" is so iconic I don't want to mess around with it. Yeah, to tell you the truth I'm not sold on that one either. I like the idea of the gradiant but I also like the yellow lettering. Here are some other versions: Thank you. Your feedback was great, Cibalia will be updated for sure.
  21. Thank you, I hope you will enjoy the rest.
  22. GOŠK Dubrovnik was founded in 1919. In 1980. the club merged with their city rival NK Jug and changed it's name to GOŠK-Jug. During the 1980's the club has been a regular member of 2nd Division Yugoslavia League. In 1991. the club merged with NK Dubrovnik and played 1. HNL for 4 years. After that things started going south. Over the years the club relegated to the 5th Division and are now competing in 3. HNL. The new logo is inspired by the crest of the city of Dubrovnik. Oh, and if you are wondering why HBO as a sponsor, Dubrovnik was the main filming location for King's Landing in the TV Show Game of Thrones so it's a little easter egg.
  23. Thank you for the kind words. I hope you will enjoy the rest of the series.
  24. Inter Zaprešić was founded in 1929. under the name NK Sava and has played under various names until 1962. when they were renamed Jugokeramika after their main sponsor, a local ceramics factory. In 1991. the factory changed it's name to Inker (INdustrija KERamike) and the club adopted that name. In 2003. the factory stopped sponsoring the club and so the name was changed to Inter. The club has been playing in 1. HNL, 2. HNL and 3. HNL and is currently playing in 1. HNL. The new logo is a modified crest of the city of Zaprešić. The away kit is a tribute to Brighton & Hove Albion FC who were the first international club to host a Croatian soccer club after Croatia declared it's independence.
