  1. I've made no secret of my distaste for the Brewers' new logo and uniforms. I'm hoping that the club will do with their 50th Anniversary set what they did for their 25th Anniversary set, which is make some tweaks after a couple years. With that in mind, I worked up some tweaks to the current set, and would be glad for your feedback. Nothing here is more radical than that 28th Anniversary makeover (with one notable exception we'll get to later), so I could see something like this actually happening. Template is courtesy of @rsaline, with my gratitude. The basic ground rules I set for myself: only minor changes to the typeface and logo(s). keep the color scheme. I really wanted to try and limit the scope to what the Brewers did in 1997. So, with all that said, here's the concept. The cap logo is consistent across all platforms, being a very slightly modified version of the classic logo. Certainly less modified than the current one that the owner let his kid trash. HOME UNIFORMS: I kept cream as the primary home, and pinstripes on white as an alternate. I don't think the Brewers are on a schedule anymore, but I liked the "On Fridays We Wear Pinstripes" campaign. The cream uniform eliminates the thick 70s sleeve striping in favor of taking the current pants stripes and applying it consistently to the jersey. This also ties in with the striping pattern on the current road uniforms. The sleeve patch is @ren69's gorgeous update of the Brewers' 1940s Barrelman logo. I think it works a little better as a sleeve patch than the swinging Barrelman, being more square and with fewer thin appendages. The pinstripes are clean and classic. The cap logo is repeated on the sleeves as an homage to the alternate uniform worn from 2006 through last season; the Brewers have never worn pinstripes with any other logo, so it certainly seems to fit. ROAD UNIFORMS: Again, I conformed the stripes on the road jersey. It really bothers me that none of the current jerseys have the same striping. The sleeve patch is carried over from the home creams, to create another consistent element in the two primary sets. I did consider re-coloring his uniform to gray, but decided to keep him in the home uniform. The road alternate is near-perfect (so long as I'm keeping the current scripts). All I did was swap out the sleeve patch for the Barrelman batting. And here's where we get creative. HOME/ROAD ALTERNATE: Although powder blue is overused in MLB right now, the Brewers certainly have a claim to it (even originating the #PowerBlue hashtag a couple seasons ago). This jersey could be worn on the road or at home, and incorporates the classic Milwaukee wordmark with the People's Flag of Milwaukee, symbol of the city. Well, whadd'ya think?
  2. Hi everyone! I hope you're all staying safe and healthy during this strange, uncertain time. Since I've had more time on my hands than usual, I decided to revisit an extensive MLB project I began a while back. The premise is simple: What if each MLB team (except, of course, the Yankees) began adopting alternate uniforms starting in the 1960s? Rather than just choose an arbitrary year, I decided on 1963 as my specific starting point as that was the year the Kansas City Athletics introduced their solid green and gold uniforms. Some designs will be inspired by teams' era-appropriate batting practice jerseys, while others will be completely original. Also, teams with co-dominant colors (such as the Pirates and their black and gold) will get multiple alternates, one for each color. I tried to be as comprehensive as possible, but if I neglect to include a particular look from any team's post-1963 history--no matter how brief--please do not hesitate to point it out. I briefly considered posting teams by era, but given how convoluted that would become (some teams might introduce an alternate in the '70s and wear it for 20 years, while others might have one for only two or three seasons in the '60s, for instance) I ultimately decided to just go team by team in alphabetical order. Since the D-Backs were born in the era of alternates, we'll start instead with the Braves. C&C appreciated! BRAVES HOME ALT (1966-71) BRAVES ROAD ALT (1966-71) BRAVES HOME/ROAD ALT (1972-75) BRAVES HOME ALT (1976-86) BRAVES ROAD ALT (1976-86) BRAVES HOME ALT (2000s)* *The Braves introduce a gold home alt in the 2000/2010s because why not? I think it looks cool. I didn't do any late '80s-early 2000s alternates as they would look more or less the same as their current alternates. C&C appreciated!
  3. Welcome, everybody, to this brand new series! I can't wait to get going on this thing, and I just think it's super cool y'all are checking this out. Since I first posted my very first few concepts on here on a few months ago, I feel I've learned a lot, and hopefully you all see that improvement as this series unfolds. I'll try my very best to keep updates daily. Below is the order in which I will be posting all 30 MLB teams: AL West - - Seattle Mariners (Ver. 2) - Oakland Athletics - Houston Astros (Houston Colt .45s) - Los Angeles Angels (Revamped Alts) - Texas Rangers NL West - - Los Angeles Dodgers - San Francisco Giants (San Francisco Seals) - Arizona Diamondbacks - San Diego Padres - Colorado Rockies AL Central - - Cleveland Indians - Kansas City Royals - Chicago White Sox - Detroit Tigers - Minnesota Twins NL Central - - Pittsburgh Pirates - Cincinnati Reds - St. Louis Cardinals - Milwaukee Brewers - Chicago Cubs AL East - - Boston Red Sox - New York Yankees - Baltimore Orioles - Tampa Bay Rays (Expos/Montreal rebrand) - Toronto Blue Jays NL East - - Philadelphia Phillies - New York Mets - Atlanta Braves - Washington Nationals (Senators rebrand) - Miami Marlins Each team will get four uniform options, including a home, road, and two alternate jerseys. For most teams, I will be avoiding adding throwbacks as their alts, but teams with classic looks like the Dodgers, Red Sox, and Yanks might end up with one as a fourth uniform option. some changes will be very small, others will be complete overhauls of team identities. And hopefully you'll like what I do to your favorite team's look. Anyway, that's enough talking. Let's get this thing started! As always, constructive criticism is encouraged. Enjoy!
  4. Hey everyone, A while back I started a discussion in the General Sports Logos forum on which MLB teams could most use redesigns and new color schemes. It sparked the idea that a few teams with older/outdated designs could look to local college baseball teams for design inspiration. For this mini series, I'll be focusing on a small group of teams, maybe four or five. Let's start today with the Angels! ANGELS HOME: ANGELS ROAD: ANGELS HOME ALT: ANGELS HOME/ROAD ALT: For the Angels, I've used the Trojans of the University of Southern California as inspiration. The Halos adopt a deep crimson red and athletic gold scheme, a color combo I've long felt would work well for them. The cursive "Angels" script is a tweak of the original Lakers script from the early '60s. No unnecessary outlines or drop shadows. Just keep it simple. I've also brought back the early "CA" monogram. C&C appreciated! The Rangers are next.
  5. Hey there, everybody, I'm new around here. I've always had a passion for sports and sports logos, specifically baseball, but I don't really know a whole lot about graphic design. I've had some free time to dabble in the redesign arena lately, however. Thanks to @rsaline's wonderfully easy to use template, I have been able to knock out quite a couple teams this past week or so. Now, it's my first time doing anything like this, so I obviously welcome critiques. I probably won't have time to go back to fix everything based off of suggestions right away, but I'll do my best. Right away, you'll notice I haven't done anything too crazy with the few teams I've finished so far, and I don't plan to do so. You'll also find that I rank the old MLB logos and jerseys over the current looks. You'll see an abundance of throwback logos, fonts, and colors. Anyway, without any further comments, let's get underway! - Nate
  6. Hey everyone, A few weeks ago in the MLB changes for 2019 thread, @NicDB suggested the Brewers wear their powder blue road throwbacks when they play AL opponents. That gave me the idea that it might be interesting if both the Brewers and Astros, the other team with a past life in a different league, wore special throwback uniforms for inter-league play. But rather than straight throwbacks, I thought it might be more fun if each team received a new home and road alt that paid tribute to their full history in their original league, incorporating elements from many different eras, even the less popular and more short-lived ones. And with that, I came up with some designs and I'm pretty happy with the results. Enjoy! BREWERS HOME: BREWERS ROAD: - The Brewers home set is a pullover design that uses a simplified version of the home script and numbers from their '94-96 look, and the BiG logo makes an appearance as a sleeve patch. - The home cap features a gold front panel and their '97-99 cap logo in royal blue. - The road set is powder blue and uses the team's 1990-93 script in yellow, as a nod to the team's '70-71 uniforms. - The road sleeve stripes are from their 1970 road set, a holdover from their Seattle Pilots days. ASTROS HOME: ASTROS ROAD: - The Astros home set is a pinstriped version of their orange-heavy '71-74 uniforms. The star on the cap and jersey design is from their '94-99 era look, and the number style on both sets comes from their 1975 uniforms. - The road set uses the dark cream color from their '83-93 road uniforms and a simplified version of their '01-12 "Houston" script. - I didn't want to go full tequila sunrise for either set, so I used a variation on the sleeve stripes from their '80-93 uniforms. C&C appreciated!
  7. Now that it would seem Padres fans were successful in their "Bring Back The Brown" campaign; might it be time for a similar fan-fronted movement for the Brewers regarding the uniforms most of their fans clearly want? How would one even go about starting such a campaign? I'm guessing a facebook group is a no-brainer. But I'm more interested in the nuances that made the San Diego fans' campaign so successful. At the very least, we can use this thread for discussions about the Brewers uniforms so as to not keep jacking other threads.
  8. In my opinion, one of the best looks in baseball is an off-white home uniform. Because of this, I really liked the Cool Base Ivory fashion jerseys that were introduced a few years ago, despite not being a fan of every design. I recently stumbled upon '47 Brand's Two Tone Clean Up caps which were also off-white and featured retro team logos. I figured these caps would look good paired with uniform designs inspired by the Cool Base jerseys, which gave me the idea for this series. I took some creative liberty here and there (for instance, I was definitely not going to use the "cracked out" Tiger logo) and ended up pretty happy with the results. This will be a quick series, so I'll be positing each division at once. Let's start with the AL East! ORIOLES: RED SOX: YANKEES: RAYS: BLUE JAYS: C&C appreciated. AL Central is up next!
  9. This is a project I've actually had for awhile. I decided to take the Brewers current logos and put them with the old Brewers colors. I only used Microsoft paint for this so yes it is a little low quality on some of the logos. Feedback appreciated!
  10. Hi All, My name is Brandon Johnson, otherwise known as hawkfan13 on here and I have decided to take up the challenge of redesigning all 32 team logos in the MLB. So far I have 2 done, the Brewers and the Dodgers. These are potential portfolio pieces for me so any advice and cc is appreciated. Thanks for looking Brewers- In my opinion, the logo they have now is getting stale, it has now been around for a year longer (16 years) then arguably their best logo the glove in the shape of a m and b, which would be used as a alternate logo. In this case I wanted to revise their current logo into a more modern sans serif version of it.
  11. Hey everyone, For a while I've enjoyed to think about what kind of changes I would make to uniforms across MLB, just being into design as I am. I've always wanted to make a thread of my own here after seeing so many great ones, but never thought I had the computer skills, nor did I really think hand-drawns would show up great online. After my Twins concept though, I got to thinking and decided to at least try to flesh it out into an entire MLB-wide series. Things are probably gonna slow down quite a bit from me once school starts back up, but at least this is worth starting. This series is just gonna be my fixes to things across each of the uniforms, I'm gonna save major redesigns for maybe a future series... So here it goes starting off, naturally, with the Arizona Diamondbacks: Logos -Brick red, Black, and Teal are now the main colors. It's a good time for Arizona to move on to a more modern scheme. -The teal has been adjusted a bit, it's a little greener to look more like a color inspired by Native Navajo jewelry rather than Tron electric blue. -Caps are both the A logo, just because I'm personally not a fan of the D snake. -Both caps have the diamond snakeskin pattern on the brim to still achieve the two-tone look. -Sand-ish colors are still present in the identity, as the home is now cream, and the away is full-on the sand color. Uniforms -I like the way the 'D-backs' wordmark looks, besides the fact that it says 'D-backs'. I had to compromise and put the 'A' on the home. -The diamond pattern is on the back of all jerseys, which makes sense for a team named the Diamondbacks. -No pattern on the pants. It isn't really necessary. -I decided to keep the cut piping, but cut it at an angle on the jerseys, like the pants. The colors are also now teal/red/teal on the jerseys because I feel that looks more Arizona and less Tron. -As said before, the away is now sand. I didn't hate the concept of dark gray, just didn't think it fit the team, especially with teal. -Snake patch is on all jerseys. -Both alternates can be home and road. -Some may not like this, but all accessory elements are interchangeable. Things like hats, belts, and socks can be worn in different combinations with different jerseys. So, of course, let me know what you all think! All comments/criticisms welcome!
  12. Hey guys. I've seen this a few times pop up in the MLB thread, talking about the Brewers. Now, I feel the Brewers have had some good jerseys, but never a 100% completely good set. Here, I've tried out a combo of eras. The colours I chose are a mix of each era (Using the RGB values. Adding em up & dividing them by 2/3.), with the Navy being a mix of the Royal, 90's navy and Current Navy, the Grey is a mix of the Grey they've always used with the Light blue from the 72 to 84 years. The gold is also a combo, combing the original Yellow with the shade of gold they've used since the Motre Bame era. The cap logo is the "M" they 1st used, while the Sleeve logo is a mix of the Motre Bame era & the original state patch they wore that I kinda meshed together. The scripts are from the '90 to 93 jerseys. This was just something that came to mind, and I think it turned out well. C & C is much appreciated, and I may make some more MLB jerseys if I can get around to it.
  13. So, now that I got the Miami Marlins off my chest, I figured I should tweak the other teams that have been bothering me too. Nothing bothered me as much as the Marlins, but it doesn't take much to aggravate me...sadly. The next team I wanted to put a paint brush to was San Diego. Like most, I feel they should be going back to the brown and yellow colors. I on the other hand want to put more emphasis on the brown and keep the yellow to a minimum. I have no issue with their current word scripts and uniform style, I just feel the brown and yellow would look better. So with that in mind, here is my version of the Padres. The away has a grey that has very slight orange tint to it, just to give it some warmth with the brown and yellow. Then there is the Home alternate. The big trend of having the logo over the heart/left side is not missed on the Padres. I'm currently working on a brown top alternate for the road as well as a new main logo that will combine a few era's logos with the swinging friar as the center piece. How does that look? C+C appreciated.
  14. It took me a while to figure out what to do with the Brewers, but ultimately, I give you the Brewers vs. the White Sox, as only I will. Honestly, basing things on the 80s Brewers is somewhat passe. Luckily, Gothamite's involved with the Borchert Field blog, which is about the old American Association Brewers, upon which both uniforms here are based. The Brews' traditional look for most of their existence was a block M at home, and either the same M or MILWAUKEE on the road, only donning tops that read "Brewers" for the first time in the early 40s (as opposed to the modern Brewers, who've never worn anything but BREWERS on their home whites), and the particular uniform I based the home off of had distinctively thick blue piping paired with a red M (which I sort of invoke with the gold M). The all navy road is loosely based on a one-season road set worn in the early 40s that'd been introduced by one Bill Veeck (though that jersey read Brewers, not Milwaukee). The main liberty I took here was the use of the Barrel Man as a sleeve patch, despite the fact that neither the Brews nor the Brew Crew* were big on patches until relatively recently. *Kinda like how the PCL and ML Angels are distinguished from each other by their pet names (Seraphs and Halos, respectively) so too are the AA and ML Brewers (Brews and Brew Crew, respectively) I got more suggestions for the Sox than I knew what to do with (not naming name ). Not a part of the suggestion box was the use of the flying sock on the home set's cap. The silver script and numbers, however, were among the suggestions (and I decided to use silver pinstripes for the hell of it). As were the shorts that I was gonna do anyway. The road is an 80s composite, with the Batterman on the cap and the SOX lettering from the beach blanket jerseys in navy with red trim, a nod to the more sedate late 80s set (with its quirk, the pants number, represented here as well). The Remaining List (no particular order): Canada (Blue Jays vs Expos-90s) Texas (Astros vs Rangers-2000s) St. Louis (Cardinals vs Browns-40s) Philly (Phillies vs A's-30s or 40s) NYC (Dodgers vs Giants vs Yankees-mid 50s) Beantown (Red Sox vs Braves-late 1940s) I-94 (Brewers vs White Sox-1997)

    Brewers Concepts

    I was board so I decided to make a concept for a jersey. This is the Blue Alt Jersey plus the Gold Alt jersey. And gold pants. This is my first concept. No names on the backs cause There wont be. NOTE I MAY MAKE A SERIES ON THESE Give feedback
  16. In the big leagues, many teams have alternate or away caps, but don't have a batting helmet to match it, making for inconsistent headgear. I decided to make batting helmets concepts based off these hats. The template didn't really turn out the way I wanted it to, but the helmets don't look bad. My favorite concept is the orange Marlins helmet. Since these concepts aren't anything new, I'll put them all in a few posts. C & C would be greatly appreciated, as this is my first time doing anything other than hockey jerseys. Thanks!
  17. I have a blank road jersey from 1998 like this (although this photo is of Marquis Grissom's jersey). I'm trying to figure out which player to put on it, considering the entire team pretty much sucked. I was thinking maybe Cal Eldred since he was one of the longer tenured players on the team, and Jeff Cirillo went on to be a fan favorite. Thoughts? Here is the team roster that year. Who should I do? # Pitchers Height Weight Throws Bats Date Of Birth 52 Bobby Chouinard 6-01 188 Right Right 1972-05-01 58 Valerio de los Santos 6-02 180 Left Left 1972-10-06 21 Cal Eldred 6-04 235 Right Right 1967-11-24 40 Chad Fox 6-03 175 Right Right 1970-09-03 53 Rod Henderson 6-04 195 Right Right 1971-03-11 43 Joe Hudson 6-01 175 Right Right 1970-09-29 43 Doug Jones 6-02 195 Right Right 1957-06-24 14 Jeff Juden 6-08 265 Right Right 1971-01-19 42 Scott Karl 6-02 195 Left Left 1971-08-09 41 Jose Mercedes 6-01 180 Right Right 1971-03-05 57 Greg Mullins 5-10 160 Left Left 1971-12-13 28 Mike Myers 6-03 200 Left Left 1969-06-26 31 Bronswell Patrick 6-01 237 Right Right 1970-09-16 39 Eric Plunk 6-05 217 Right Right 1963-09-03 46 Bill Pulsipher 6-03 210 Left Left 1973-10-09 47 Al Reyes 6-01 195 Right Right 1971-04-10 52 Rafael Roque 6-04 189 Left Left 1972-01-01 89 Travis Smith 5-10 170 Right Right 1972-11-07 46 Paul Wagner 6-01 202 Right Right 1967-11-14 49 David Weathers 6-03 205 Right Right 1969-09-25 27 Bob Wickman 6-01 240 Right Right 1969-02-06 48 Brad Woodall 6-00 175 Left Both 1969-06-25 37 Steve Woodard 6-04 225 Right Left 1975-05-15 # Catchers Height Weight Throws Bats Date Of Birth 25 Brian Banks 6-03 200 Right Both 1970-09-28 33 Bobby Hughes 6-04 229 Right Right 1971-03-10 23 Marcus Jensen 6-04 195 Right Both 1972-12-14 16 Jesse Levis 5-09 180 Right Left 1968-04-14 22 Mike Matheny 6-03 205 Right Right 1970-09-22 # Infielders Height Weight Throws Bats Date Of Birth 11 Ronnie Belliard 5-10 214 Right Right 1975-04-07 26 Jeff Cirillo 6-02 190 Right Right 1969-09-23 30 Bob Hamelin 6-00 235 Left Left 1967-11-29 32 John Jaha 6-01 205 Right Right 1966-05-27 8 Mark Loretta 6-00 175 Right Right 1971-08-14 7 Dave Nilsson 6-03 215 Right Left 1969-12-14 2 Jose Valentin 5-10 175 Right Both 1969-10-12 1 Fernando Vina 5-09 170 Right Left 1969-04-16 # Outfielders Height Weight Throws Bats Date Of Birth 20 Jeromy Burnitz 6-00 190 Right Left 1969-04-15 9 Marquis Grissom 5-11 190 Right Right 1967-04-17 24 Darrin Jackson 6-00 185 Right Right 1962-08-22 5 Geoff Jenkins 6-01 204 Right Left 1974-07-21 50 Greg Martinez 5-10 168 Right Both 1972-01-27 10 Marc Newfield 6-04 205 Right Right 1972-10-19 39 Eric Owens 6-01 185 Right Right 1971-02-03
  18. As I often put it, I got ideas. Not necessarily enough for a full set, however. For instance, a road alt for the Braves based on their late 70s roads...I couldn't decide between a white-front or gray-front cap, so I went with both. Speak on it.Loosely straight versionGray-front version
