  1. Hey everyone! I posted this in the MLS Kits 2021 thread, but thought I'd post it here to get some more feedback (not sure if cross-posting like that is allowed). I didn't change the central elements at all, I changed the font of the roundel to better match the central 'R' and the marketing concepts found alongside the leaked badge. It's not a perfect match, as I couldn't find a similar-looking font to the one used by the designer, but it's close enough to what I was envisioning. Alongside changing the font, I also added red to the founding year to distinguish it from the name of the team and to get some better colour balance. As well, I also changed the roundel (3rd row) to something that I felt was more interesting than just a simple white circle. The 1st row would work best, IMO, on the kits & hats and other merchandise and in situations when the name and year is not needed. The 2nd row would work best on some merchandise and general advertising situations when the full name is needed, and that (or the 3rd row) would probably be considered the official badge. **I should mention (consequences of posting late at night), the five images at the bottom are not mine. Those are the promotional concepts made by the designer of the leaked badge and which appeared on their website. I simply put that row there to highlight the differences between my tweaks and the original work. Sorry for any confusion, I just don't want to take credit for work that isn't mine.** (Apologies if a little bit low-res. Made in Gravit Designer.)
  2. So I decided to act on my earlier nitpicks and slightly edited the badge to what I think looks better and more interesting. I didn't change the central elements at all, I changed the font of the roundel to better match the central 'R' and the marketing concepts found alongside the leaked badge. It's not a perfect match, as I couldn't find a similar-looking font to the one used by the designer, but it's close enough to what I was envisioning. Alongside changing the font, I also added red to the founding year to distinguish it from the name of the team and to get some better colour balance. As well, I also changed the roundel (3rd row) to something that I felt was more interesting than just a simple white circle. The 1st row would work best, IMO, on the kits & hats and other merchandise and in situations when the name and year is not needed. The 2nd row would work best on some merchandise and general advertising situations when the full name is needed, and that (or the 3rd row) would probably be considered the official badge.
  3. Getting strong Man City (among other clubs, but that's the first one that popped into my mind) vibes from the Revs badge, they both have extremely similar elements. I've never been a fan of the crayon logo, and so any type of change is something I like, but I'm not sure how much I like that leaked badge. Edit: Thinking about it, I think it could be improved by removing the white circle, putting a white outline around the central element, and have the lettering either staying or going depending on where and how the badge is using (kits, merchandise, general advertising, etc.). That can emphasize the central element of the badge, the badge itself can still contrast well from a background, and the lettering can add to the central element if it is needed. Oh, and change the font for the circular lettering, it feels pretty basic and a changed font could make it more interesting. Maybe the font used on the marketing shown here.
  4. New TSN scorebug debuted at the WJC that’s more in-line with the rest of their updated packages. IMO an upgrade from their previous look, but curious to see how it will look with other sports like Basketball, Soccer, and Football.
  5. Has anyone else seen the new graphics for TSN's Sportscentre? Saw them last night and today after the NFL game and liking the look. Finally updated their old look that was a few years old w/ a lot of red and 3D moving graphics to a 2D, arrow-focused and grey-heavy look that is pretty nice, though I think should still benefit from a little bit more red in some parts.
  6. What about option 3 with NY to the left of the wing? How would that look?
  7. I'm really liking Calgary, especially the flames on the shoulder yokes. I personally believe the home jersey needs a bit more white for colour balance, maybe just above the thick yellow stripe, and maybe change the colour of the primary flame, as it looks like it will blend in to the rest of the jersey quite a bit. Overall still a great job and looking forward to more work.
  8. Hey you don't have an image for Austin up.
  9. I'm loving the direction with the Sharks. The removal of orange really re-emphasizes the focus on teal, black, and white, and the striping really lets the colours pop. I think my only gripes is that the removed on the numbers could be slightly reduced, they seem a bit too thick for my liking. This one could just be my eyes playing tricks on me, but it looks like the spacing between the stripes on the alternate isn't as much as it is on the Primaries. But that could just be me. Still a great set, would love to see them wearing these one day.
  10. Loving the direction you took the Kings. A great combination of eras with the colours but, like the rest of the set, with a nice modern update. Usually not a fan of shoulder number logos but I think it works well here. Personally, I'd like to see an arm logo on the Home similar to the Away and Alt, not sure if the Primary would go there to match the others or the lion to match with the alternating Primary and Alternate logos. I also think the LA logo could work well on the Away, or switch the Lion in for the LA as the Primary with the LA going on the Alt, and I think moving the L to the left a little bit will help with spacing and clarity as the L, for me, just isn't as distinguished from the A as it could be. Still a great set and still super excited to see the rest.
  11. Really like them all, digging the creativity of the sets in the logos and the uniforms are pretty fresh looking as well. Only nitpick for me is the red through the middle of the Coyotes' alternate logo, I think it makes the wordmark a bit busy and doesn't let it pop as much as it could. Looking forward to the rest of the teams, think this series will be a great one.
  12. whitecaps officially reveal new jersey on their website. behind the scenes video also shows all blue back
  13. It could be just me, but it definitely looks like an ocean or water design for the Caps. I like it though
