  1. So, you should seriously trademark that KC logo. That is freaking SICK, and I could totally see it selling to any franchise (down to high school level).

     

    It is very catchy and easily identifiable. I am very impressed!

  2. I read in a topic some while back the idea of making football uniforms for schools that don't have a football team.

    I like this concept, and I would like to leave this as an open forum for people to post up their ideas/concepts.

     

    My Masters degree is from Webster University in St. Louis. I have one of those t-shirts that says "Webster Football" and "Still Undefeated!" on the back

    I tooled around with some concepts and combinations.

  3. Another Rivalry, Northwestern-Illinois. These two teams play for the "Land of Lincoln Trophy" - formerly the Sweet Sioux tomahawk. In the theme of my rivalry concept I kept the format the same for each teams, but added their own colors and flair. I understand that the Chief Illiniwek logo is no longer in use, but it is a cool logo nonethesame. I incorporated a map of the state at the back of each helmet and a line art portrait of Abraham Lincoln on the sides.

  4. While making suggested improvements, I decided to toy with the idea of Nike ProCombat making a rivalry series of uniforms. Something that would be unique to a rivalry, but similar/close enough in style that it would look cool to see the teams play against one another.

    Purdue and Indiana play their rivalry game for a trophy called the "Old Oaken Bucket" ...and It is really an old bucket made of wood. The winner of each game adds a link to the chain attached to the bucket. The links in the chains are metal forages of the initials of the Victors school "I" links for Indiana wins, and "P" links for Purdue wins. I incorporated the bucket on the shoulders of each jersey and the victory chain links. I added the phrase "Our State" to the nameplate on the back of the jersey and incorporated the state of Indiana in each team's helmets.

  5. Illinois with recommended changes.  I'm not sure how I feel about this. I left the side of the helmets blank, ideally for the small state map award stickers to eventually populate.

    The other attached image is a concept that I found online that I REALLY like. I tried my best to emulate that concept with my own flair when drafting this.

  6. Iowa with recommended changes. I took off the TV numbers and added their signature "America Needs Farmers" icon.  This icon is typically used as a helmet sticker, but here I thought it would look better as a patch on the left sleeve.

  7. Michigan State with recommended Changes. I blended the logo as best I could. I think the issue with it is that it doesn't have the black outline, so it looks like it is a different shade.

  8. I had a little fun with the Michigan Uniform.  I did nothing to the helmet, because it is pretty much universally agreed upon as perfect.  I tried to incorporate that look into the shoulder sleeves.  I did several alternates, to include the "Harbaugh All White" uniform...And I had some fun with the Maize coloring.

  9. For Michigan State I tried to keep it simple, and do away with the dreaded block "S"

    I incorporated the chevron from the spartan shield on the shoulders and inlets, and I incorporated a primitive sword to the helmet and pant striping.

  10. The Wisconsin Badgers uniforms have always been fairly simple.

    Today it id difficult to identify Wisconsin's uniforms from Nebraska's on any normal game.

    I wanted to incorporate the look of Badger Fur here, hence the white black and grey. I also tried to make the Black Stripes look as if they were forming a "W"

  11. This is an amazing concept!

     

    Suggestions for future designs:

     

    Wisconsin in the shape of a cheese wedge or a badger

     

    Indiana as a basketball net (in both crimson and gold) or as a race car

     

    Michigan as a "Marvel-esque" Wolverine with the UP being his claws

    or

    Michigan as a Spartan Warrior with the UP being a sword held above in "Attack Mode"

     

    Illinois as a minimalist portrait of Abe Lincoln, and put a top hat on the state

  12. I'd like to add that there are some folks on this site with God-Given talent and artistic abilities.

     

    I AM NOT ONE OF THEM!

     

    However, if any of you feel generous enough to shoot me a private message with constructive criticism or, better yet, tutorials on how to better use my software (I have Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator also) I am MORE THAN HAPPY TO ACCEPT YOUR ADVICE!

     

    I am not a professional designer, I do this to pass the time and it is something that I find to be very fun. I have 8 more years until I can retire from the Army, and I would like to build on my skills in that time to hopefully do some designing for local municipal teams/high schools etc. down the road.

  13. These are sick!

    I love the Bluejay logo. You have done something here that I didn't think was possible and improved upon the Johns Hopkins Lacrosse Helmet logo. Kudos to that.

     

    I also really like how you have taken the feathers to the shoulders. It is an awesome concept, similar to what Louisville has done, but you kept the feathers unique.

     

    Great Work!

  14. For the Northwestern Wildcats I went Retro.  Keeping things simple, and back to their roots of the "Northwestern Stripe" as they were the first to put a stripe on their football uniform.

     

    They have been using black as an alternate color (or mainly as a primary color) a lot in the past 10-20 years. I minimized the black and kept the purple as the primary.

     

    I am a fan of white helmets lately, I think they are much more versatile in the neo-retro designs.
