  1. Back again! This next concept is one that takes a little bit of looking at. It is the first of the really "gaudy" courts in this series, but I feel it gets the job done here. Greensboro Swarm: Where do I start? The baseline is covered in a honeycomb pattern that carries onto the court in the form of a darker finish on the wood floor. The floor itself is made of a mix of different woods blended together to create a really clean feel underneath (there's enough going on already). The arena logo is inside of the three point line because it feels like it was made precisely for this team (probably because it was). The team's alternate logo balances out the interior. Overall, it looks very busy, which under normal circumstances wouldn't be a good thing. But because the team is named the Swarm, this court does well to create a feel of constant motion and energy as your eyes are constantly being carried from one feature to another. C&C Appreciated.
  2. Wow it's been a while since I posted on this. I just haven't had a lot of time on my hands recently, but I have enough tonight to post another concept. I decided to go with a more detailed court after positive feedback from the last one. Grand Rapids Drive: There isn't a lot to say, as this court is pretty forthwith, as is the logo. The mid-court logo is gargantuan and a big "GR" secondary logo is superimposed onto the floor, which is why the arena logos are on the baseline. The out of bounds line is outlined in red to mimic the logo. C&C appreciated!
  3. Okay I attempted to remedy both problems with this next court. The half court circle is supposed to be there on every court, I just think it's better for presentation's sake to have people just assume it's there. But anyways, I added a see-able circle at half court and arena logos for the next team, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. Please provide C&C on this new style (whether i should continue on with arena logos/mid-court circle) as well as the concept itself. Thanks! Fort Wayne Mad Ants: This is on of my favorite designs. The mad ant logo is unique and the color black goes really well with the red and yellow. The surface is pattern-cut oak made to resemble anthills and the jagged edges to evoke a sense of fury (how's my NikeSpeak?). The baseline text is kept simple because the floor draws a lot of attention already. C&C plox.
  4. The last one looks pretty good in the fact that I could see it being used as a logo for a 90's Super Bowl. On the other ones I'd get rid of the gradients/glows/clip art/shadows and re-do them with the same design, but different execution. Also, the third one especially is reminiscent of those "have you or your loved ones suffered or died from mesthelioma?" commercials.
  5. It might just be me, but these give off an early 2000's feel. Too much use of "metal" gradients and oddly-serif'd text as well as the "glowing" edges. If you want to greatly improve these I'd go back into whatever program you used and make more single-color layers and more clearly defined borders. (You should also probably condense all of your Super Bowl Logo concepts into one post instead of creating 6 different posts and cluttering up the forum ) Also, is that the Law & Order font?
  6. I'm still alive! I had a few bball games over the past few days so I haven't really had time to do this. Anyway, Yeah I thought about that but I think a lot of arena logos cold be considered sponsor logos so I stayed on the safe side and left them out. As for alt logos inside the 3 point line and such, I don't really like the way they look and if it were up to me, they wouldn't be allowed, so that's one reason, as well as the fact that many of these teams only have one usable court logo, due to other logos being oddly shaped, wordmarks, etc. Next up in the series, the Erie Bayhawks. Erie Bayhwaks: Erie has a quirky logo which I kinda like, so I displayed it pretty big at half court, Inside the three point line is tinted Erie Gold (I don't know if that's the actual color, but whatever), and the top of the key is scarlet. I wanted to focus attention to the logo, so i used generic-colored broad panels for the woodwork (and I just like broad-paneled floors). C&C Appreciated.
  7. Not a huge fan of FSU but I absolutely love those gold uniforms. It's a rare look and I imagine it looking even better in real life.
  8. Well, I'm on to the next one. This was the first court I made in this series and it's definitely one of my favorites. Here's the Delaware 87ers. Delaware 87ers: I like how clean and classic the 87ers primary (76ers old logo) looks, so i tried to recreate that in the way i designed the court. The half court logo is just a mite larger than normal, and I tried to give it a nice modern feel without it looking too cluttered by adding a lighter-colored ring of stars as featured in the logo. The area inside the three point stripe features the same lighter-finished wood. C&C? Any comments on how to make this series more interesting/appealing?
  9. Alright guys, it's time for another court. I will say in advance that this is my least favorite of the designs. Canton just doesn't give you a lot to work with. Anyways, here's the Canton Charge: Canton Charge Not a lot to say here. I tried to spice it up a little bit with "glowing" baseline letters but it still seems to be missing something, and for the life of me, I can't tell what it is. C&C greatly appreciated. (If it makes you guys feel any better, this is pretty much the last of the "boring" courts imo)
  10. I think in certain situations it (shiny fabric) looks fine, but not when it's a jersey matched with non-shiny pants or vice versa. Also, i think only teams with that kind of sparkle material in their helmets (Ex: Patriots is the first on i can think of) should use it. I noticed this when the packers went to play @Washington a week ago. Here's their current road uniform: Notice how the pants are that non-shiny Nike material and when paired with the shiny jersey/numbers, unnecessary amount of mesh, and inconsistent sleeve cuts (not to mention the screen printed stripes), it makes the entire uniform look cheap and high school-y. The Packers aren't the only ones with these problems, but there in the forefront of my mind because I was thinking the same thing as most of you guys.
  11. Well, I didn't get any feedback on the last one but I'm still chugging along. Next up: the Bakersfield Jam: Bakersfield Jam: This is another court on the simple side (don't worry, there are some gaudy ones coming *cough* D-Fenders *cough*). I really like the color scheme here and wanted to bring that to the forefront, , so the design is kept simple with a light colored hardwood surface and a giant-sized mid-court logo. I experimented with Black lines but they kind of cluttered the look so I stuck to white. C&C appreciated.
  12. I'm doing a small series of NBA D-League court concepts and would appreciate some feedback. The basic rules of the concept are that I can only use the color pallete from the half-court logo for any of the paint, the lines have to be a separate color from any paint, no sponsors should be featured, and the baseline text should read the team's location (with one exception, you'll see why later). I'm going in alphabetical order of the team name so to start us off, here's the Austin Spurs. C&C appreciated. Austin Spurs: With the Spurs I wanted to create a simple look, which the color palette lends itself to, but also give sort of a rustic feel which I tried to accomplish with the faded wood and spurs superimposed onto the playing surface. Again, the baseline font is kept simple to complete the look.
  13. Thanks for all the feedback to this point! I am now done editing Anaheim (although C&C is still appreciated) and I'm moving on to the Arizona Coyotes. First though, here's Anaheim Final. I tried to change anything and everything that you guys thought needed fixing, and, especially on the logo, it helped out quite a bit to make it a more complete look. Anaheim Final: Arizona Coyotes C&C still greatly appreciated.
  14. How's this? I added more stripes because it looked too empty above the ball without the legs i thought.
  15. Yeah, I thought that initially, but I think they add character to it. I'll try getting rid of them though.
  16. It's pretty self-explanatory; over the next week or so, I will be making a home and a clash soccer kit using the color schemes and mascots of all 30 NHL teams. The colors I use are all indexed from the sportslogos.net NHL Logos page, and the majority of fonts are courtesy Conrad. In addition to the 2 kits, I will also be designing a quick mock-up of a logo for each team, again using only official team colors, white, and black. Please post any questions in the comments below. Here's the first one: Anaheim Ducks: Please feel free to leave any C&C you find necessary. List of Finalized Teams: Anaheim Ducks
  17. So this is my first time making a hockey uniform concept. I don't really watch hockey that much but I liked Toronto's color scheme and I thought I'd try my hand. C&C Appreciated.
  18. Good for you. Unfortunately, the majority of the people who do this are dummies like me who know very little about it.The truth is, this is gambling just like anything else. This is the same as gambling as NFL games, except it's just on individual players. I'm glad New York chose to classify it as gambling. Good riddance. Oh yeah, and I hate those ads too. lol OnWis97 was making fun of the ads in his post. He wasn't actually serious. "dummies"
  19. Looks like somewhere I'd call if I had problems troubleshooting my PC.
  20. I'd like the first one a lot more if the number had the same gold outline as the second.
  21. Yeah i never really understood why they chose to outline the football in that shape. It just doesn't look good at all.
  22. Well you know your audience, males and females ages 16-25. Look at some designs and rebrands of popular products aimed at young people in recent years. I can tell you that the current trend is bright, unusual colors contrasting with black and some sort of pattern superimposed on the background. Of course, what is currently popular with this age demographic is (i predict) very unpopular with the old lions of th CCSLC demographic, so looking for opinions from younger people might be a better option. The best most of us on here can probably give you is what they think young people will like. Well your a 16 year old so you fit into the demographic im trying to appeal to. What do you like about the box, what do you look for when you buy cookies in terms of the design and marketing, what appeals to you guys? I was thinking of using some sublimated images in the re-brand, and maybe switching over to a medium-dark green of sorts. Yeah I'd say no go with the dark green. And i actually prefer more traditional design so i don't think I'd be a very accurate assessment of my demographic lol.
