  1. FINISHED CONCEPTS: Cavalry FC (Calgary) FC Edmonton Forge FC (Hamilton) Halifax Wanderers Pacific FC (Vancouver Island) Valour FC (Winnipeg) York 9 FC Fury FC (Ottawa) CF Québec ----- Hey! Long time no see! ? Since it's been announced that Canada is getting its own first tier soccer/football league, I was pretty stoked when they announced Winnipeg as one of the cities to get a team (since I live in MB and all that jazz). So I decided to make some kits for all the teams that are in the league (so far): To start things off: Here's Cavalry FC! (Top is home, Bottom is away) Template created by Michael Danger aka Raysox C+C appreciated!
  2. Thought I would take my shot at "fixing" the Jags, Titans and then maybe a few other NFL teams that just don't feel right to me. First up, the Jags. They want simple, so I give them a simple uniform but not so simple as to look like a Div-2 college. Teal is the primary, black the secondary, and if they feel they must, they can go unitard with all black or all white on a hot August day. I envision the primaries as White jersey-black pants and teal jersey-white pants. Note the angled stripes are on the sleeve cuff, pants and socks.
  3. The Baltimore Ravens' logo has been in service since 1999. During that time they won the Super Bowl twice (2000,2012). Having that history tied to their current logo puts my concept at a disadvantage, but here it is: Undecided if I like the gold line/white beak or white line/gold beak.
  4. Looks like the philosophical opposite of the XFL: http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/25470052/former-nfl-players-plan-launch-freedom-football-league Cities and names already, no logos: San Diego Warriors, Oklahoma City Power, Portland Progress, Texas Revolution, Ohio Players, Florida Strong, Birmingham Kings, St. Louis Independence, Connecticut Underground and Oakland Panthers.
  5. TCU has a few vintage logos, but I thought I'd take elements from them and create a neo-vintage one:
  6. Putting together some design concepts for the new XFL and am trying to come up with names. Here is what I have so far. Let me know what you think or what your suggestion would be for the new team nicknames! 1. St. Louis Clydesdales (Clydes) - Home of AB Gunners (First STL football team in the 30s) Archers 2. Dallas Marshalls Twisters (Tornado, also someone who breaks a horse) Americans (Play on America's team, also tribute to Arlington Cemetery) Military's team 3. Houston Barons (Oil Barons as a reference to the Houston Oilers) Voyagers Comets 4. LA Shooting Stars Waves Pacs (Pacifics) 5. New York Fivers (5 Burroughs) Empire Expatriates (Expats) Word that means immigrant, or not from here 6. Seattle Emeralds Steelheads SeaWolves - (Play against the SeaHawks) 7. Tampa Bay Explorers (Marco Polo) Firebolts (Word for lightning) Racers (Refer to speed boats) 8. Washington DC Gladiators - Rome Architecture Federals (Feds) Paladins - DC referred to as "Camelot"
  7. Some of you might be aware that a new spring football league, the Association of American Football (AAF) is kicking off (or rather starting from the 25 yard line) this February. With all the team logos being released, I figured I'd through some field concepts out there. AAF Logos Starting with the San Diego Fleet first I used the same number font and grass pattern that was used the last time the Chargers played in San Diego, since the Fleet will be playing in the same stadium. Thought about using a helmet logo at midfield as the Chargers did, but the uniforms for each team haven't been unveiled yet, so I'm not sure what the helmet will look like. Maybe something I come back to. I think for all the fields, the AAF logo should be on the field, no smaller than 4 yards in width, as I have on this field. Since it's a new league, it needs to advertise itself in every game. Speaking of advertising, I wouldn't be surprised if advertisements were added to the actual fields, like in college bowl games, since that's a revenue source for the league.
  8. The Falcons are overdue for a fresh look. In my opinion, their old look wasn't a bad one, but Arthur Blank wanted to forge a new winning identity, so I get why the brand was changed. It's unfortunate that such a classic and strong logo had to fall victim to association to decades of losing. My idea is to go back to the old branding, but not all the way. I kept the current forward tilt of the current logo, as well as the aggressive bird's eye and overall feel to the classic logo. I did some styling to the wing feathers for a more aerodynamic look, and updated the bird's head and beak to look more like a bird of prey than the old, docile head of the classic logo. I may play around with helmet/uniform concepts along this line, so stay tuned! Here are the old and current logos for reference:
  9. So I've finally done something I've been pondering about for the past year or so. I made an entire fantasy football league where each team is made up only from players in a given state/region. It's a different way of using fantasy and it seemed like something that could be interesting to see as the season played out. I went through pro-football-reference.com and looked through each player birthplace states to find players for each team. The beginning rosters were not permanent, I have changed each variously throughout the year as I found out some players produce more points than others. Each Wednesday I go through and edit each teams rosters and it's actually been quite interesting to watch week to week. Here's a list of the team I decided to use: East Division: Dixieland Rebels (Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee) Florida Hurricanes Georgia Swampers Great Lakes Bucks (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin) Mid-East Islanders (Delaware, D.C., Kentucky, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia) New England Pilgrims (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont) New Jersey Sea Dragons Pennsylvania Colonials West Division Big Sky Ranchers (Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington) California Surfers Great Plains Bison (Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma) International Travelers (All non-USA areas) Louisiana Gators Ohio Harvest Rocky Mountain Bighorns (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming) Texas Gunslingers Here's a look at the current standings. It may surprise you how each region is doing, as well as what players are on each team and how each team did against each other. http://games.espn.com/ffl/standings?leagueId=704917&seasonId=2018 Let me know what you think of this little experiment, or if you know of any improvements I could make for next season.
  10. Hey all, About a week ago I decided that I would try my hand at pixelated art. I was inspired by everyone's favorite football video game, Tecmo Bowl, to create some pixelated football helmets. In this graphic, I've created all of the teams in the local Gateway Athletic Conference. I'd really love some feedback on anything and everything here. I'm only about halfway through my first quarter of Graphic Design 1 right now, so I'm definitely still new to making concepts. Any words you guys have would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for viewing, hope you all enjoy!

    Apple Cup Logo

    Hey everyone. I've been holding onto this design for a while, as the Apple Cup hasn't been on anyone's mind until now, and no one could've predicted just how important it would be! The current logo for the game is serviceable, but is incredibly bland and generic. I sought to create something unique to Washington, and here's what I came up with, in several different color options. Thanks for checking it out! https://imgur.com/kCvbtmD https://imgur.com/bwzIphx https://imgur.com/Rf10GkD https://imgur.com/BdxRyzh https://imgur.com/92eaete
  12. On April 21, 2001 at the conclusion of the first of that American staple we call "The Big Game at the End", as we watched the Xtreme lift that big X over their heads, we thought that the XFL would be taken away from us forever. But apparently, there are rumblings that the X Football League might be fixin' to make a comeback! Now if that's true, which I hope it is, first of all I'll be tuning in for sure, and second of all they're gonna have to tone down the 2001 more than a few notches. Especially with NFL ratings in steep decline this season, this is the perfect time for Vince McMahon to swoop in and create the Anti-NFL, or the Xtra-Fun League, if you will. But image is everything. And safety, safety's probably in there somewhere too. We'll see. So I want to get way out ahead of the rumors and set up what I think would be a fitting return for the XFL 18 years later. I'm not gonna quibble over the actual rulebook, I'll let them figure that out, but I do know what I'd like to see design wise. Here are my design rules: 1. There are no rules! Actually, there are a few. They're right here. 2. No white allowed. Off-white is allowed in small doses, as well as silver, but stark white is not allowed on Logos, Uniforms, or Merchandise of any kind. 3. Helmets are a canvas. No more small, tame, rinky-dink helmet logos. Helmets should be loud and expressive of a team's design, serving as the centerpiece of their uniform. 4. 3 logos per team, no more and no less. They are as follows; Insignia: main logo, Proxy: secondary, Character: letter logo 5. 3 uniforms per team, no more and no less. They are as follows; Base: worn at home, Clash: worn on the road, Army: outside the box third jersey worn at home. 6. Unique NOBs are still allowed, but have to be approved before being applied to jersey. So there you have 'em, my official design rules for the XFL! I'll be following these closely for all eight teams (more on teams ahead). The New Official Logos of the XFL The original XFL logo was rushed and horrible, so I wanted to make a logo that would completely change people's view of the league. Modernized, but as no nonsense as always. This was my creative process, pardon the roughness. Early thoughts were that I'd like to include a lightning bolt in the X or make the X from negative space, but I ended up choosing something closest to the lowest logo on the center left because I liked the unique shape and inclusion of a football. After some retooling, I ended up with a result I'm really happy with that includes an Insignia, Proxy, and Character logo for the league. The Insignia uses a combo football/shield shape with half of the X made by stitches; football or otherwise. Teams Here's the thing, I don't know the teams yet. I know the cities, but I don't know the teams. The reason being this is going to be a step-by-step project so I'll be including my entire process, part of which is choosing the names of all 8 teams. I'd love to hear any names you can come up with as well! Here are the eight locations: Boston (new) Chicago Detroit (new) Las Vegas California New York St. Louis (new) Texas (new) So there it is, The new XFL! What do you think of the idea, setup, and first trio of logos? Your feedback is incredibly important to me, so don't hold back with the C&C! Thanks guys, and stay tuned for Boston!
  13. Links to each post: I II II-alt III IV V VI VII VIII IX X XI XII XIII XIV XV XVI XVII XVIII XIX XX XXI XXII XXIII XXIV XXV XXVI XXVII XXVIII XXIX XXX XXXI XXXII XXXIII XXXIV XXXV XXXVI XXXVII XXXVIII XXXIX XL XLI XLII XLIII XLIV XLV XLVI XLVII XLVIII XLIX 50 LI In a world where the Cleveland Browns not only make the playoffs, but make it to the Super Bowl five times ... Now that the Super Bowl Field Database thread has run its course until January, I will be doing alternate Super Bowl fields using the teams that lost the conference (or league) championships, or even some teams that lost in the playoffs earlier than the conference title if requested. Since these games never happened, I can take more input on what people would like to see in a teams endzone, especially for teams that hadn't made a Super Bowl during a particular era. In the Super Bowl database thread I mentioned I would go in reverse order for these fields, but now I'm thinking it makes more sense to go chronologically. So here is Super Bowl I, the Dallas Cowboys vs Buffalo Bills. And as I said before, endzone designs (mostly color schemes) are not set in stone here, so suggestions are welcome.
  14. Hello! I’ve always been a huge fan of sports branding and history, but I’ve never actually taken to creating my own logos/jerseys until now. I figured this would be the best place to post my first attempts at creating teams because you all seem to give useful feedback, even if it isn’t always exactly what the artist want to hear. For this project I’ve created 8 team leagues for baseball, american football, basketball, and hockey, and I've decided to use my own templates. The templates are pretty basic but I’m proud of them. Any recommendations for upgrading the templates would be greatly appreciated as well. I should also mention that for the time being I am using a program called Vectr. First up will be the Stars and Stripes Baseball League. Each team will have a home, away, and alternate uniform. The 8 teams will be in these markets: New York Los Angeles Chicago Houston Phoenix Philadelphia San Antonio San Diego The first team posted is the New York Honeycrisps, which is based on the “Big Apple” nickname for New York. I know cliches aren’t always the best way to go, but I couldn’t keep myself from trying to create an apple holding a bat. Anyways, I’d really appreciate your feedback on what areas I could improve in. Thanks for reading!
  15. Rebrand for my alma mater Western Michigan University. We aren't sure if we are black, gold, old gold, grey, or brown. I think the Brown and Old Gold is a great scheme and it's time to return to our roots. Enjoy. Uniforms to follow!
  16. The 2018 High School football season kicks off tonight here in Michigan so I thought it would be a good time to start this up again. Please post what local schools in your area are wearing or any other schools you happen to find. Now that we are in the 2018 season I see more and more schools switching to one of the 3 big brands (Nike, Adidas, UA) however there are still some schools wearing brands like Wilson, Riddell, Russell Athletic. I also see more schools usually the bigger ones following the college teams and adding multiple alternate uniforms and in some instances alternate helmets.
  17. Just playing around as I only have basic software to work with. But this came out pretty good. Could only find a small Texans logo and a pennant photo to work with. If anyone has already updated these, I'd like to see your work .
  18. Inter Miami Kit Concept
  19. With the announcement that the Jets will be wearing new uniforms next year I thought it topical to have a go at a concept. Any C&C will be well received as always. New York Jets Logo The iconic Jets logo has been sharpened and made to look more like the silhouette a football and less like an actual egg. The 'Jets' script remains. Home and Road The helmet is based on the '78 - '89 helmet. The uniforms again are based on every iteration of Jets uniform. The Kelly Green from '63 - '97 With the sleeves I wanted to combine the current sleeves with the striping from the '78 - '97 jerseys. The stripes on the pants and socks aim to create a balance across the uniform. The Road uniform's combination of white/green/white is based on the '90 - '96 road uniform. Color Rush The Color Rush uniform replaces the white face mask, white sleeves and white stripes on the pants with Hunter Green (Jets current green). This is the only time the Jets will wear the green/green/green combination. Throwback Due the NFL rule on one helmet the throwback could only be the '78 - '89 or the '90 - '97 uniforms. The '90 - '97 uniforms have totally unnecessary highlights of black in them so I settled for the '78 - '89 uniforms. I hope you all enjoy.
  20. NCAA FBS football is thoroughly exciting both on TV and in person due to both the level of competition and the atmosphere with the crazy student's sections and the marching band among other traditions. I'm such a huge fan that I'm going to all of Western Michigan's home games this year (GO BRONCOS!!!). For this project, I'm creating another level of competition above the FCS and FBS, the FSS or Football Super Series comprised of 104 (fictional) colleges and universities just a bit bigger and better than the FBS. Each school will get uniforms and this neat little 8-bit matchup mockup (I love old-school video games) to show what combinations they'll be wearing throughout the season. For the names, I created a spreadsheet with all of the states and territories, and all of the names already taken (U of, State, Tech, A&M, Northern, etc.), and filled in the blanks. So, without further ado, here are the conferences:
  21. The Jets USA Today blog had an offer for fans to design their ideas for what the Jets will/should do when they get new uniforms next season. This was my entry. The new Primary logo brings back a modified version of the 80s futuristic jet logo but places it in the oval that's been part of the Jets identity from jumpstreet. Double Green was a happy accident when I was trying to incorporate the Titans gold I selected the wrong oval from a previous layer and it showed a Kelly outline instead of Gold. The decision to use a Kelly Outline with Hunter interior rather than the reverse came from the Color Rush jerseys as a lighter outline seemed to give a sort of shine to me. The main inspiration from the color choices in the striping came from the Jets color rush which is one of the best in the league in my opinion. While the green pants are shown with the home greens, that would be a rarity to with but the road whites could pair with the whites or greens.

    NY Jets

    im hoping when the Jets roll out new unis next year, there wont be any drastic changes. i think they have a great foundation and need to take the same approach as the Lions and Vikings; just put a new spin on the classic. i'd love to see them adopt a new green that isn't Kelly Green. it's a little too expected, so my choice is "Bright Emerald" which is a name i totally just made up, but at least its unique in the NFL. i think the solve for some of these shoulder stripe issues they have now is to move it all down the sleeve. it's important that the contrast areas are bold and impactful, so i would expand that stripe element outside the shoulder seams just a little (think of the Browns or Seahawks stripe technique). finally, have to make the NY-oval the primary logo. large, bold shapes fit this design much better than the overly detailed logo they have now. i always like to think of the alternates when making new uniform decisions too. considering the leagues 1 helmet rule, any alternate would have to work with a white shell. i didn't want to add a black or gray jersey or anything too out of character here, so my alternate option is a throwback. the 1963 uniform gives people something they haven't seen in a long time and provides a darker green jersey option that fans would be more accustomed to.
  23. An idea recently popped in my head: Would it be possible to operate a football league where the quarterback system is similar to how pitchers are used in baseball? Instead of a QB depth chart you have your QB1 (Starter), one or two relief QBs, and then a "closer" QB who specializes in the two minute offense. The starter QB would have to play at least 2.5 quarters to be considered the winning QB and the closer QB would have to maintain the lead from the time they enter the game until the end to be credited with the equivalent of a save. Relief QBs would be used to help get their team gain the lead and maintain it until the closer QB enters the game.
  24. I apologize in advance for this super long first post here. This is by far the most lengthy and intensive project I've done yet. Anywayyyys... USSL History: The US Super League was founded in 1970 at the peak of American soccer popularity. Many leagues were expanding rapidly, and the US wanted to make a Champions League type competition to compete with the European soccer market. They founded the Super League with six leagues from Texas area, California area, Florida, New York area, New England, and the Midwest. Many teams started to assert dominance in the League, and it almost became too one-sided. In 1976, more leagues started to join to increase competition and eventually by the late 80’s, every league in America was admitted to join the US Super League. In modern day competition, 64 teams face off in a group-based format. The field narrows down to 32 as the remaining teams face another group stage. The knockout stage starts when the field hits 16, and it eventually whittles down to a final 2. Dallas Rangers hold the most victories with 7 followed by Brooklyn Wanderers who have 6 and Atletico Santa Monica who have 5. The 2016-2017 champions was the Californian club Saint Joseph who earned their 3rd title.

  25. Hadn't had any good concept ideas for a few months, largely because the time I'd normally use for them, I've instead focused on custom teams and boards for Techno Bowl (hell, I've actually gotten a game in ), but a couple days ago, I doodled something down that I thought could work for Missouri. A little bit later, here it is. Inspired by Faurot Field's diamond endzones, the helmet and pants feature diamonds in lieu of stripes. The sleeve numbers are also on a diamond, though early on, I decided against doing the same on the torso for obvious reasons. The diamond theme continues with the alts, though kicked up a notch in different ways. The alt helmet encases the tiger in a black diamond, and the dark alt uses an elongated diamond on the torso, with ghosted tigers on the sleeves. The light alternate, as you can see, would probably look more at home at the Kentucky Derby...or, now that I think about it, Murray State. It should go without saying, but people don't read posts anymore :p ...the alt helmet can be worn with either of the main jerseys and vice versa, the pants can be swapped, and rebates suck. Post, speak, and yell words.
