  1. There's an a for Australia, and a W for women's and the overall design looks like the goal posts and goal square. but it also looks like WPS Office https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_c7SIbcTpySYbYobfhoeYClXLNdUhZhclzvD17w-GBACXAK9A3lbPTXPKEzKOtQJ3jky=w300
  2. How about some Aussie logos? They don't need the text or the grey background.
  3. Channel Nine TV station sponsor the semi pro Eastern Football League in Melbourne Australia Their logo is For every club in the league, the Number 9 jumper looks like this:
  4. One for the Aussies And one for the Americans
  5. These look great. They'd be a good start for someone looking to do a history of football uniforms. Like what this could be: http://www.weirdwolf.net/FFP/index.htm
  6. Australia's teams wear Green and Gold because when first formed as a country in 1901, most times they played sport it was against England, who had combinations of Red White & Blue depending on the sport. So Australian chose Green and Gold and have worn it ever since. The only exceptions are clash kits, though there was a move to use Navy Blue more often, but this was regarded as being un-Australian.
  7. Something I've always wondered about, but never actually had to do. Until now. I'm trying to re-create this: The idea is it's a TV set. What I am trying to do is re-create the outline around the screen which looks to have a white/grey to black gradient. Any ideas on how to do this in Illustrator? Would you just trace the shape, or is there a better trick? And how to make it so it looks like it fades?
  8. Who has the graphic designers to come up with concepts? Not the footy club, not the AFL. Yeah, it's Puma, and they consider what they do 'leading edge'.
  9. Here's 3 jerseys all designed and implemented by Puma Australia. Guess who designed the Murder of Crows?
  10. Called a Murder of Crows, after the collective noun for Crows, this is the Road jersey they will wear this season. Personally, I wouldn't use it to wash my car with, but that's just me.
  11. Yes, exactly the same. I made mine in Illustrator, and have not saved the text as outlines, so you'd need a few fonts. I am not sure which you will need but I am reliably informed they are amongst these: http://www.mediafire.com/?9lxjq4oeeaq97hb http://www.mediafire.com/?f2mtmmbzhoe805s http://www.mediafire.com/?5arzb2myd5k34r9 http://www.mediafire.com/?x42nvbou0akx6cu However, the template are here: http://www.mediafire.com/?n6yako8jjz9im9m Again, these are only the front, because the Aussie Rules football cards did not have a standard design on the back.
  12. I've done front only versions of the Aussie Rules ones, which were based on the Topps ones. I never bothered doing the backs because ours were always a large photo from the Grand Final (playoff) which you only completed once you had the entire set. So each back was a different part of the photo

    NHL meets AFL

    Back in the days of long sleeve jumpers Melbourne's came to a point down the sleeves, reinforcing the yoke look. I'd like to see your Demons concept with that look. Also, what about their new shield logo? Parts of this would look good on the hockey jersey. PS Jimmy Bartel has no S at the end of his name Apart from those few things, these are great.

  15. I don't know where to reply, here or BF. This seems fitting. Just too many to comment on. Excellent stuff, love most of them. Each has a Discrim touch that is always unique.
  16. Interesting Eels logo in the bottom corner. PS John's house is still for sale if anyone wants a mansion in Canberra. http://www.mcgrath.com.au/index.cfm?fuseaction=buying.slideShow&listing=147797 He's also a member of these forums
  17. What teams are the first two I have neve seen them before? Hawthorn Hawks (normally wear Brown and Gold) West Coast Eagles (normally wear Blue & Gold) Check out my site, all the jumpers ever worn are in there, link below.
  18. So did Rochester Institute of Technology finally get in touch with them about using their logo? http://www.rit.edu/upub/approved-rit-logos Due for a change, but seriously? That is worse than bad.
  19. This is Navy Blue with Gold and Brown diamonds, White collar and cuffs. Worn once, forever known as the Fugly. The Dog's Breakfast. What happens when you can't decide whether the colours should be Light Blue, Dark Blue, Red, Ochre or Yellow. Go with all of them. The wee stain. What can we do with the old sheets from the nursing home? They seem to be stained from years of bladder control problems. Make them into a football jumper. Perhaps not the best pic to show it, but the Gold gradient started turning white just as the jumpers appeared over the top of the shorts, making them look urine stained.
  20. Made a new template. When I say "made", you could also insert the words "traced someone else's" somewhere in the sentence. Same deal, PM if you would like me to email it to you.
  21. Anthracite? Sorry I'm new to the whole designing thing and have no idea what that means :s yeah you can try it, yours will probably turn out a lot better then mine haha Anthracite is a very dark Grey, almost Black.
  22. Sorry mate, the template I have, which was made by someone else from here (name escapes me at the moment) for Adobe Illustrator. And unless you have that software, it won't work. Colours look much better now, just toned down a touch but it makes a difference.
  23. Where to begin? 1. The name Drop Bears is traditionally the lie we come up with to foreigners about killer koalas, so the idea of an ursidae bear just seems weird. 2. The crazy look on the bears face doesn't make him look aggressive, but kinda mental. If you can, either make him more like a killer koala or start with a new drawing of a koala. 3. The colours, as everyone else mentioned, just because Paint offers you certain colours doesn't mean you have to use only them. If you go to Colours up the top, then Edit Colours, you get to choose the colours you want. Click on Yellow then Define Custom Colours. This brings up a box that will let you pick any colour you want. If I were you I'd change the Green setting to 214 and then click on Add to Custom Colours. Back in the design change each yellow section to the new Aussie Gold/Yellow you've just made. do the same fo Red, but change the Blue setting to 23 and the Red setting to 245. Save that one and re-colour the Red, 4. The logo, I'd go with the second one, though you'd also need to change the Green. 5. Reduce the size of your fonts on the numbers and names. EDIT as mentioned by BBtV And based on what you have done, here is what it looks like, just on another template with the colours I suggested.

  24. Footscray changed their name to Western to facilitate a move to Western Sydney, thus not having to change their name when they moved up there. Then the club found out that their supporters were so against it that the people making the move would be kicked out of their honorary positions, and never welcomed at the club again. Given they are now not moving, and the League has now decided on an expansion team there, there is no reason for them to be called Western Bulldogs other than hiding the intentions of the Board (most of whom are still involved at the club) in 1997.
  25. Got the template used by the horse racing industry in Australia. PM me with an email address if you would like it in Illustrator format.
