  1. Haha, no way! I thought he stopped playing in Brasil... I designed the home kit thinking of Atletico Madrid, but now you mentioned it the laurel in the logo gives it major Olympiakos vibes.
  2. Club de Rugby Cisneros is based in the city of Madrid, the capital of Spain. Madrid, nested on the castilian meseta, is world-known as an energetic and bustling city, with one of the most popolous metropolitan areas in Europe. CR Cisneros in deeply linked with the Complutense University of Madrid, the oldest public university in the city and the focal point of higher knowledge in Spain during the last two centuries. The rugby team takes its name from the Colegio Mayor Ximénez de Cisneros, the university's dormitory named after Cardinal de Cisneros, an important figure in spanish national history, and has its roots in rugby's early 20th century spread in universities all over Europe. Home field: Campo Central de la Ciudad Universitaria Founding: 1943 Motto: No parar hasta conquistar (we don't stop until we conquer) Logo: a coat of arms representing some swans, as the name cisneros means swankeepers The jersey: Their main colors are light and royal blue, in horizontal hoops. The clash kit has the same pattern but in burgundy and garnet. My redesign New logo: on the actual logo I just added the gold border on the shield and the lettering in a fitting font New jerseys: the home kit is inspired by their actual two tones blue kit that is very sleek, in my opinion. For the clash kit I used the chevron of the shield, that is a common feature on rugby jersey (especially in rugby league).
  3. Miami United Football Club Nicknames: - Home field: North Miami Athletic Stadium, North Miami Beach, FL Founded: 2012 Motto: Bringing the community together for the LOVE of the game Titles: 2 conference titles (2014, 2016) Logo: I tried to stay on the same page as their actual logo, with a traditional shield and the Miami skyline, but I also decided to switch to some less aggressive tones of blue and pink. Instead of black I added a dark navy blue as the dominant dark color. The flaming ball on their actual logo was giving me massively '90s vibes so I decided to add a football in the form the sun shining on Miami. The font is inspired by the many art deco buildings in the city. Kit: I tried to show the amazing colors without making the jerseys too color heavy. The chest striping was inspired by their actual kits (some of the worst kits I've ever seen...). For reference the actual logo and jerseys:
  4. I see what you mean, I was inspired by a dutch kit where it was all of the same orange color, but it's true the contrast was not enough. Here I toned down to white the orange to enhance the contrast.
  5. Miami Dutch Lions Football Club Nicknames: The Lions Home field: Tropical Park Stadium, Miami, FL Founded: 2011 (as Texas Dutch Lions) Motto: Gateway to professional soccer Titles: 1 conference title (2016) Logo: I tried to achieve a more traditional look by only using two tone orange and the same shape as the dutch national football team. The lettering on top seemed better than cramming all the words in the shield, as they stand for Miami Dutch Lions FC. I completely eliminated blue from the logo, but the iconic dutch brilliant blue is still heavily featured in the kits. Kit: The home jersey is centered on orange while the clash is on blue, each one with contrasting details. The striping should be subtle and almost sublimate, not heavy on the eye. For reference their actual logo (the new one just says Miami instead of Houston) and kits:
  6. Uh, nice stuff here! I'll be following this. If I'm not mistaken Bayer Leverkusen was founded by workers of the Bayer chemistry and pharmaceutical plant. I know that the team is in fact nicknamed Die Aspirin by some and was originally called Verkself (factory team). Now those nicknames are not the greatest, but maybe could get you into something. Milan is usually referred to in Italy as Il Diavolo (the devil), but here you have the problem that is too similar to Manchester Utd. Maybe you could try with Crusaders (in italian would be I Crociati) or something on this line, as the symbol of the city of Milan is the cross of St. George (that is also present in the teams' crest). Milan supporters used to be named Casciavit (Milanese dialect for Screwdrivers) as they historically came from working class backgrounds, but this is no more true. Monaco is a difficult one, I'd go with something like Princes or Royalty to use what Monaco is really famous for (other than heaps of money). Concerning the other names I just have to note that Inter should be I Biscioni, not Le Biscioni, as it is a masculine noun.
  7. Club de Rugby Santander is based in the lively city of Santander, capital of Cantabria. Santander has universities, a beautiful natural harbour and nice and quiet beaches, making it a famous turistic spot in the north of Spain. In the city you can find many charming seaside boulevards and public parks, one of them that even has tanks with penguins and seals. Home field: Complejo deportivo Ruth Beitia Founding: 2007 Motto: Todo es posible (everything is possible) Logo: a seal playing with a rugby ball, from where they got their nickname of Las Focas (Seals) The jersey: Their main color is black, with some green triangular patterns. Theyr clash kit is solid green My redesign New logo: reworked the idea of the seal, adding some more details like the wavy backgroung and the ferns, as their actual roundel is pretty standard and generic. Insted of black, I added in the color palette a dark navy blue. The roman numerals stand for the team founding year. New jerseys: their triangular pattern don't really mean anything, so I decided to link their jerseys with the beauty of the cantabrian land. The home jersey represents the ocean, while the clash jersey is inspired by the green and lush coast, where the humid climate is perfect for ferns and similar plants.
  8. Disclaimer for rugby newbies (if you know what a maul is, you can skip down): On the topic of rugby jerseys Very few rugby clubs have names on the back of the jersey, this is because the number on a jersey is linked more to a field position than to a specific player, say you are a scrum-half, your number would usually be 9. This is why in my templates you don't see the jersey backs, that usually have just plain numbers from 1 to 23. In rugby, in most clubs, you don't have a home and away jersey, you just have the team jersey and then a clash kit in case of a color clash with the opponent team's colors. For this reason sometimes it is difficult to find the clash jersey of some teams as maybe they just have a smart color combo that seldom needs to be swapped for the clash. Rugby clubs usually have just one set of socks that goes with both the main and clash jerseys, this sometimes makes them look quite out of place, but hey, they are playing rugby, not fussing around. The same can be applied to shorts, but in higher level clubs it is easier to have two sets of shorts if the clash is not matching with the main one. For this reason in my template you have two pairs of shorts, but only one of socks. Getxo Errugbia (Getxo Rugby), freshly promoted from the División de Honor B, is based in the town of Getxo (pronounced Guecho), in the Bilbao metro area, in the basque province of Vizcaya. Getxo is an affluent residential town, renown in Spain for its very peculiar hanging bridge on the river Nervión, designed in 1893 to allow the passage of the big ships built more upstream in the Bilbao dockyards. Home field: Campos deportivos de Fadura Founding: 1975 Motto: Somos rugby/ Errugbia gara (we are rugby) Logo: a charging ram, represent the solidity of the team The jersey: Some iteration of yellow and black, seems like whatever is fine, from dots to vee's My redesign New logo: reworked the ram in a less 70's way and added a bitonal pairing of black and coal, yellow and saffron for added detailing New jerseys: they don't really have a jersey identity, so I worked mainly on their distinctive colors, leaving the design simple. The sublimated stripes are inspired by the famous hanging bridge, especially by the intricated supporting beamwork and holding cables
  9. Central Florida Panthers Soccer Club Nicknames: Panthers Home field: Showalter Field, Winter Park, FL Founded: 2018 Motto: Respect all, fear none Titles: - Logo: I stood with their logo concept but changed some details, like getting rid of the black, adding white to the panther's teeth and to the ball, slightly redesign the neck line, nose and eye. Kit: In the color palette I felt strongly the presence of AS Roma, so I was inspired by Roma white kits in the home jersey, while the clash kit plays with the idea of panther claw markings For reference their actual logo and kits:
  10. My take on some of the names: New Jersey -> both Generals and Knights are pretty generic so they both could be used here, I would choose the one that gives you the better graphic identity in your mind Philadelphia -> Bell Ringers is a good idea but the name it's too long for me, Spirit (singular) would be meaningful, represnting the american spirit Washington -> here I really like the name Sentinels, it evokes the martial theme yet can also stand for the idea of the wardens of democracy and freedom Birmingham -> Forge is clearly the more fitting with the city's history, but also flames would do (although it is a little bit more generic)
  11. It is about time to show some love to rugby here ! As always I found an obscure league in need of an overhaul and so I'm glad to present you my redesign of the spanish División de Honor, the top tier of spanish rugby union. The league has 12 teams and has a relegation system, meaning that the last team is sent down to the División de Honor B and the champion of the lower tier gets promoted; the second to last of the División and vice-champion of the B tier get to play a play-in-out game. This is a pro league, meaning that players get paid, but for many not enough for a living, so a number of them has a side job or are students. This a very common thing in european pro rugby outside of the top leagues. Many teams have important sponsorships that even change their names, I don't really like this system so I'll call the teams without their sponsorship name. The División was founded in 1953 and since then a number of teams have won the trophy but the most succesful are Valladolid RAC (10 titles), Club Deportivo Arquitectura (9 titles) and CR El Salvador (8 titles). Teams for the 2020/21 season are: Valladolid RAC (Valladolid, Castilla y León) UE Santboiana (Sant Boi de Llobregat, Catalunya) CR Cisneros (Madrid) Independiente RC (Santander, Cantabria) CR El Salvador (Valladolid) Ordizia RE (Ordizia, Gipuzkoa) Aparejadores RC (Burgos,Castilla y León) Getxo Errugbia (Getxo, Vizcaya) FC Barcelona Rugby (Barcelona, Catalunya) Club Alcobendas Rugby (Alcobendas, Madrid) Ciencias CR (Sevilla, Andalusia) CR Santander (Santander) league map Here you have my redesiged logo fot the league. Renfe, the spanish national railway company, is the main league sponsor. For reference you also have their actual logo (this is the 2014 edition, seems like they haven't a newer one)
  12. Boca Raton Football Club Nicknames: BRFC, Pirates Home field: Atlantic Community High School, Delray Beach, FL Founded: 2015 Titles: 1 APSL title (2015) Logo: I kept their actual logo as I really enjoy the modern rendition of the town's crest Kit: The home kit is almost the same as their actual one that as a very peculiar hooping pattern that reminds me a lot of vintage dingy sails from the 70s and 80s, a very "holiday beach" look. The clash kit has darker tones but still tropical Florida colors. The ivy leaves pattern is inspired by the team crest and town's coat of arms. For reference their actual kit:
  13. North Alabama Soccer Coalition Nickname: NA Gravity Home field: John Hunt Park Championship Soccer Stadium, Huntsville, AL Founded: 2008 (since 1999 as Huntsville Soccer Club and Alabama KICKS Futbol) Titles: - Logo: I don't like the whole of Alabama in the actual shield, especially since the name of the team is just North Alabama, so I went in a very different direction and incorporated in the logo a Huntsville staple, the Saturn V rocket from the space museum, that you can see frome miles away when approaching the city. Kit: I kept the kits quite simple, putting the colors on the main stage and trying to infuse some class by having some classic yet smart looks. For reference their actual logo and kits:
  14. Nashville United Nickname: NU Motto: More than a club Home field: Richard Siegel Park Stadium, Murfreesboro, TN Founded: 2020 (since 1970s as Nashville United Soccer Academy) Titles: - Logo: My logo is a mix of the NPSL team logo and the academy logo, that features the burgundy and blue stripes,the N and the lion. The three stars are there to represent Tennessee. Kit: The home kit is an homage to the classical blaugrana jerseys of Barcelona FC. The clash kit has a striping pattern that is ment to represent the union of the most famous soccer jersey designs: stripes, hoops and sash. For reference their actual kit and logos:
  15. Yes, you are absolutely right, they are the same! After you pointed it out I did some research and found out that the eagle head is actually a stock vector image, used by a ton of different schools in the USA and even by law firms and religious congregations.
  16. Metro Louisville Football Club Nickname: - Home field: King Louie's Sport Complex, Louisville, KY Founded: 2020 Titles: - Logo: I used their actual logo as it is well designed and meaningful. The 13 stars on the roundel should stand for the 13 counties of the Louisville metro area, but that is just my supposition for a rather random number. Kit: the kits are insipred by their actual ones, that are quite nice, but I gave them a little tuning on the checker pattern, getting rid of the sublimated one on the blue kit and eliminating it on the sleeves of the white kit (together with the fleur de lys stripe on the shoulders that reminds me too much of Kappa 80's gear). For reference their actual kit:
  17. Lanier Soccer Association - Athletico Lanier Nickname: Sharks Home field: Allen Creek Soccer Complex, Gainesville, GA Founded: 2020 Titles: - Logo: I used their actual logo, it's simple and classy Kit: the home jersey is inspired by the fact that the teams gets its name frome lake Lanier, so you have a watery pattern. The clash kit is just designed on the kit they have in use, with the addition of the baby blue striping and swapped colors. For reference their actual kit:
  18. Inter Nashville Football Club Nickname: Inter Nash Home field: International Indoor Soccer Complex, Antioch, TN Founded: 2016 Titles: 1 conference title Logo: I mainly took away the obnoxious gradients and shading from their logo, but all in all is still quite similar to it. Instead of their orange utline I went with a golden hue, in accordance to Nashville's city flag. Kit: They are Inter, so I was heavily inspired by the italian team, I just added the peculiarity of the fading stripes. For the away kit I used their actual jersey style, but with gold instead of orange or blue. For reference their actul logo and kits:
  19. I cannot believe I missed the Logolympiads this year . I checked the section every week or so waiting for this, then I went away for a month and here they are...Guess I'll wait out for next year
  20. Georgia Revolution Football Club Nickname: Revs Motto: United we stand Home field: Warhawks Stadium, McDonough, GA Founded: 2010 Titles: 1 conference title Logo: I took many elements from their past and present logos and actually just composed them in a more uniform way. I don't like a lot the roundel they use now other than the eagle line art (which I used), I liked a lot more their previous logo that had a shield shape (that again I used here), but the bottom part with the gigantic lettering was a tad discomforting. As I said I did a mash up of what I liked. Kit: I stood with their tradition of having a white and red striped home jersey and a blue clash, just added some blue hints on the home and a darker tone blue striping on the clash to link it with the home one. For reference the actual logos and kits:
  21. As the NPSL expands, I try to stay up to date. I have redesigned the conference logos to mirror the new conferences allignment. The Northestern region is now with the addition of the Southeast conference the East region. In the Midwest region the East conference is now the Rust Belt conference, so I added some machinery flare to the conference logo. In the South region we have the new Gulf Coast conference. It was pretty difficult to find a simple symbol for this area and in the end I went with a hurricane.
  22. Torch Football Club Nickname: - Home field: Pennridge High School Stadium, Perkasie, PA Founded: 2009 Titles: - Logo: Their actual logo is not that terrible, I especially like the lettering, but I had to redo that super-ClipaArty ball. Hope I succeded in improving the logo flow. Kit: I tried some gradient here for both home and clash kits. The final results remind me a bit of some Nike third jerseys around the world, only more firey. For reference the actual logos and kits:
  23. I think the problem is in the outline. The same thickness everywhere always black or white. This gives me the feel of a neon logo, which instantly reminds me of logos from the '80s. I discovered on my own skin that by choosig a color palette with very dark colors others than black you get a more modern feeling logo. For example, for the owls you could just use gold and blue and make everything that now is black or white blue, you would get an amazing logo, 'cause you designs are very good.
  24. West Chester United Soccer Club Nickname: Predators Home field: Ciccarone Field, West Chester, PA Founded: 1976 Titles: - Logo: The concept is based on their actual logo, but instead of a roundel I used the shield shape of the eagle chest. The double-headed eagle itself is a bit upgraded, with anew body shape and no giant white and empty eyes. The logo as been around for some time, so I sticked with the bicromatic tradition. Kit: The alternate white and black striping should resembles the eagle wings. At first I used a wider striping, more like traditional Juve jerseys, but then I realised that for an average american it was way too referee looking...So, now you have this smaller width, quasi-pinstripe look. For the clash kit I used another bicromatic pairing, but of a whole different hue. The chest stripe is inspired by an old clash kit, that had a blue chest stripe on a black jersey, omittingthe very '90s fading gradient. For reference the actual logos and kits:
  25. Football Club Morristown Nickname: FC Motown Home field: Ranger Stadium, Madison, NJ Founded: 2012 Titles: 1 conference title (2018) Logo: I evolved their actual logo, changing gray with a darker tone of green and eliminating the New Jersey shape that looked wrong in there. The overall identity is heavily inspired by irish culture. Kit: The home kit is inspired by the celtic cross in the logo. The clash kit is inspired by the irish meadows and the grass grooming on soccer fields. For reference the actual logos and kits:
