  1. I know it could just be lighting like @upperV03 is saying, but I wonder if the strange, darker shade back was meant to make an all-green Sounders-Timbers game work better than in the past: Perhaps more important now that the Sounders are rumored to have a navy blue away jersey (which might clash with forest green, unlike our previous black.)
  2. That Notre Dame mascot logo turned out really well! Nicer than their full-body version they have currently, IMO. Same goes for the Delta Devils; really cool work! Feels really intimidating with that excellent use of shadow. The arms look fine, and the wordmark is cool. My only suggestions would be to replace the yellow in the trident with white, and maybe try to make some simpler secondary logos (D & trident? Head only?) Any of those eagles would be a huge upgrade. I like the one on the left on the 2nd group most. Not feeling that Montreal logo. I like the use of the founding year, and the name's a little bit better than Club de Foot, but altogether the design feels far too simple/generic. You could at least bring back the blue & black stripes somehow. I don't know how I feel about the shape; does it have a meaning? Maybe you could make it look more like the Olympic Stadium or the Impact's second-ever logo.
  3. I've waited a while to say it but these are really nice! I love what Puma has done for African teams, and these jerseys are on par with that. The Bolivia Wiphala away, the Ecuador home, and the Brazil flag away are probably my favorites. Not quite feeling the Venezuela away; it's got too many colors with the bright red added. I'd also rather see a full-on chevron rather than a pointy arrow. Also for Uruguay's away, I don't really like the blue triangle underneath the scarf. You could also maybe make the shirt brown like the vest in the image. Anyways, really good work here! I love to see nice locally-inspired designs instead of the templates.
  4. I love the paisley for the Denver away, and the barbed wire pinstripes are cool too. The iridescence for the Lizards is fun. Not sure how I feel about the Lizards' shorts; doesn't really read as a tail. Minor complaint: the outline on the Adidas logos feel unnecessary for the Outlaws and the Cannons away. Overall cool designs! Can't say I prefer the PLL's location-devoid branding scheme, but you've done a really good job adapting the MLL teams over.
  5. I like your idea to switch the colors around, with the orange letters and the black, shadowy lion. However, the face could use some work, since it doesn't quite look like a cat. The snout is too big and the bottom jaw might be better if it curved the other way. You might consider adding the tip of the nose in orange, too. The back being up so high also makes it hard to see where the head starts. Also, the bumpy paw feels a bit out of place with the smoothness of the main logo.
  6. Your take on Sarnia is a big upgrade from the current cartoony '90s look, not only for its simpler style but also for just how well you kept the feisty emotion without overdoing it! Excellent work. If you're worried about the alt logo, you could make the hive sections into distinct lumps but I think this version ties in well with the primary logo as-is. Mississauga already has a workable logo but I think yours is really well-done as well... The jerseys are sharp... I like the silver as the home color. You might try having the M logo be blue with white outlines on all backgrounds, though; I'm not totally sold on the way the colors switch now. Not feeling the towers alt logo. They might benefit from horizontal lines for windows, but personally I'd rather see a lighthouse logo like they currently have. More really good work here!
  7. You've got a solid design here, though I've got a couple ideas. I think the recolored lighthouse logo would look cleaner without the outline and with blue waves instead of orange. The upside-down V sleeve stripes are definitely a bit too steep. You could also flip them right-side up (and maybe add a shoulder yoke) as a semi-callback to the strange 2003 alt. Without those side-panels, it might be kinda nice! Either way, it's nicer and more adventurous than what we got IRL!
  8. If the original Calgary striping is swapped to be primarily yellow, then I think the collar should swapped around to be more yellow than red as well. Yours definitely looks good without any white; bummer that the logo from the real teaser was white. Love that you went with the fin logo for San Jose. Definitely prefer that over the original shark-in-triangle logo. For the Whalers one, the white name & numbers are kinda hard to read. You might go green or blue instead. I like the gray helmets! I'm not a fan of the real-life desert landscape jersey or their decision to go with purple, but despite that I think your take on the Coyotes is really nice! The moon logo goes well there, and the silhouetted mountains look good. I might make the black sleeve stripe thinner to match the black hem stripe, but that's it. It's not accurate to the teaser, but I'd love to see a version in burgundy instead of purple!

    EPL Kit Concepts

    They're pretty good for the most part, though I'd appreciate a couple tweaks. I'd probably ditch the random stripes on the back and maybe the black shield around the crest. Thinking about each on its own, I like the simplified advertisement and the chest stripes, but they kinda clash on the change jersey. You could EITHER fill in the Chevy logo with white OR you could make the logo red and expand the black stripe into a full hoop that fills the logo (that would look more like the original '99 jersey too!) I like the subtle pitchforks on the alt; maybe you could make them a bit more prominent!
  10. I like the idea of a suffrage theme. If it were me, I'd probably revive the Independence name for that. I've never heard of the Justice Bell but it'd be a great symbol for a Philly women's team. You might also look into the suffrage flag. If you're looking for some additional imagery, maybe you could include stuff to do with the river, like rowboats? Definitely could incorporate the bridge by the stadium if it's a Union sister team.
  11. Certainly a unique idea for a series here! You're off to a good start. I agree with @DukeofChutney about the arm on Ajax's logo, which otherwise looks great! I don't like that the pants stripes and sleeve stripes use the same design but totally different colors, though. Also, it would be cool to use the Amsterdam flag Xs somewhere (a black & red cap to replace the A cap? As part of the sleeve striping?) As for the Gunners, you might get rid of the baseballs on the logo (maybe replace with the ermines from the old Arsenal logo?) I'm not also really feeling the burgundy, which you might replace with gold, silver, or just more red. That said the vest jersey is excellent, and the curved wordmarks are great! You also might consider having the cannon on the second cap rather than another G. Anyways, good work! I know you don't have them planned, but I'd love to see Roma or Galatasaray's colors on a baseball jersey... Either way, I look forward to seeing Valencia & Porto.
  12. Actually, I was saying I like the roundel one better than the hexagon... But you're right, it does look a bit like a tunnel boring machine, doesn't it?
  13. Okay, here's my second logo concept for the Dynamo! I started this version first, before the leak, but I still think I prefer it over my hexagon version. The logo merges the starburst from the original logo, a soccer ball, and an electric dynamo -- all-in-one! The wordmark worked for both versions, I think. The home jersey is a solar system-like pattern orbiting around the city of Houston on a map of the Texas Gulf Coast. Inspired by the 2020 Dash jersey, this away jersey is an all-round '70s Houston homage, with the Oilers' helmet stripe, Astros' tequila sunrise, Rockets' drop-shadows, and NASL Houston Hurricane's collar & side-panels. The design also incorporates the bridge at Allen's Landing in Downtown Houston. C&C appreciated!
  14. Okay, soon Houston will be releasing a new logo, which has been leaked. It's not bad, IMO. The monogram is excellent, but the rest of the badge doesn't gel with it. Here's my spin on it: H E X A G O N I S B E S T A G O N I wanted to make more of the logo's design elements work together, as well as bring back the starburst motif from the original crest. Unfortunately, I could only do that by dropping the letter D, but I guess it's fine... Feedback there appreciated. Given that the team is using an energy bolt, the new wordmark is a mashup of the current one with the lightning-y logo of the 1983-91 minor league Houston Dynamos. The font is modified Blocktastic. As for the jerseys, the primary uses a subtle pattern based on the skylights of the Astrodome. The focus on more black from last season stays, but the use of white returns. The away is inspired by the Space Shuttle Independence and the NASA 905 plane, which are displayed together at Independence Plaza in Houston. Next up will be a second version inspired more closely by the original Dynamo logo. In the meantime, let me know what you think!
  15. That City court for the Suns is excellent! I might move the Valley script to the ends and just have the logo at center-court, though. Also, it's not necessary, but I'd be curious if the gradients would look good rotated 90 degrees so the sun is rising out of the ends. The Hornets design isn't bad but I think I'd rather see just one hexagon style (maybe the one from the sidelines). The wood stain for the Nuggets is too dark, and it makes the pickaxes feel busier than the original ones did. I'd lighten everything up and/or switch everything inside the 3-point line to the current, simpler design. Definitely a good idea to bring back the mountains, though! I feel similarly about the Kobe tribute court, but I think maybe it would work better if you ditch or shrink or monochrome the Lakers logo? Or move the 8 & 24 to the ends and put the logo in their places? Overall, good work!
