    Redwolves

    Been a while since I posted anything here, but I thought I'd share this fun little test piece I made recently. Im lucky, I get to work in sports through the animation work I do, but it means I don't get to do a whole bunch of logo work these days. in response to the Washington rebrand, I was interested in the Redwolves mascot name. It gave me an idea for a concept that sought to source a little of the old visual equity without a specific reference to native people. I understand they likely want a clean break from this, but this was just a thought experiment. My rationale is that there are multiple pirates and crossed swords in the league, why not multiple arrow heads? Anyway, the aim was to make a fun rebrand video (I'd love to get back into more sports branding in that regard) and feature a quick logo design. My uniform is terrible, so anyone who wants to take a crack at making a better version, go ahead. If I get time, Ill retexture the player with a better design. Link to the associated video posted to twitter below. Hope you like it.

  3. With all the things happening, I've designed and/or tweaked some NFL Uniforms using my own template. Not all teams will get the treatment nor will they get descriptions however so feel free to look around and if theres any questions and if i'm available, i'll answer. Enjoy!
  4. Under Armour just told UCLA they want to end their deal. How would the bruins look in Nike digs? Nothing ground breaking here... New Colors inline with the rest of UCLA's teams New Helmet striping Updated gold helmet that takes on the new color and satin finish The current helmets are a disgusting shade Truncated Nike style UCLA Stripe Maybe not a popular opinion, but I think the bold truncated stripes look much better than what they wear today
  5. Hey everyone, I decided to get going with another series and look at the defunct Arena Football League which, especially back in the 90s had some really fun team identities to play with. I actually intended to do this prior to my Milwaukee Expansions Teams series but saw Wideright do his own awesome version of this idea and wanted to give that some space before bringing mine up. Some logos I had already done before seeing his work, but decided to still show my takes. To help this one stand apart despite doing a similar concept of trying to modernize older Arena Football League logos and branding, I am focusing on teams not done there (aside from those already done). I don't have a particular number of teams in mind, this could be sometime I come back to while also working on another bigger project I have in mind. I have several in the can and ready to present, but here I will start off with my take on an update for the Chicago Bruisers. On the logo I focused on thickening the lines, adding a more aggressive edge, and simplifying the color pallette while also making it pop more. The lighter blue from the Chicago flag really stands out, and in general I have it down to 3 colors + white, rather than the 5 + white in the old one. For the helmet my big thing to help this one stand out was the diagonal stripe meant to emulate the dog collar going around the player's neck. I also put the trademark Chicago flag star in the center of the helmet to help fill the negative space there. I hope you all enjoy this take! Further posts have included (in order): Chicago Bruisers Revision Toronto Phantoms + revisions Portland Forest Dragons + revisions Minnesota Fighting Pike Grand Rapids Rampage
  6. Felt like making some concepts after seeing all of the uniform reveals this offseason, here we go: Atlanta Falcons I don't hate what they unveiled, I think with some tweaks it'd be pretty good No gradients, small wordmark, etc. I think the biggest missed opportunity was not switching back to a red helmet; red helmet/black jersey would've been a unique look and the throwback would be accurate. The side panels and pant stripes both taper to a point to avoid never lining up. Los Angeles Rams Thought I'd try making gradient numbers and bone work. This is sort of a modernization of their previous, mismatched look. The home uniform only uses yellow and orange, and the away navy and bone. Yellow and white jerseys serve as alternates. Thanks for checking these out, I'll post other teams as I finish them, or until I get bored
  7. Throughout history, some stadiums in football, baseball, and even soccer have featured both a grass field and an artificial turf field. This is NOT a debate about which is better: grass or turf (Grass is obviously better!). This is more about which stadium is more associated with a specific playing surface during a specific time period. Astrodome in Grass (and dirt infield) (1965) - This stadium is why artificial turf was created in the first place. Players were blinded by the glass roof and grass died from the lack of sunlight. Still strange to realize that the Astrodome had grass. The early Astroturf years also kept an all-dirt infield but soon switched to dirt sliding pads, a featured most associated with most baseball stadiums that had Astroturf, with Toronto's Roger Centre (formerly Skydome) being the last holdover before switching to an all-dirt infield. Nowadays, Several modern indoor/retractable roof stadiums, such as the University of Arizona Stadium where the NFL's Cardinals play, can now grow grass. Candlestick Park in Astroturf (1971-1978) – This stadium with Astroturf always looked weird as well as washed out. Imagine if this was kept by time Joe Montana and Jerry Rice were on the 49ers. Can't find a photo of 49ers during this era but found a YouTube clip of a Vikings @ 49ers from the 70s. Comiskey Park with an Astroturf infield (1969-1975) - Can anyone else think of a stadium that featured a grass outfield combined with an Astroturf infield or vise versa. Even more weird was that a stadium that was around prior to the 1960s would do something like this. Astroturf is more associated with the Cookie Cutter stadiums from the 1960s thru the 1990s. Angels @ White Sox from 1974 Veterans Stadium in Nexturf (2001-2003). Astroturf was becoming obsolete in the 2000s as newer and more grass-life artificial surfaces, such as Fieldturf, were now available. Nexturf was another option, but unlike Fieldturf it never caught on due to how difficult the playing surface was. A 2001 preseason game between the Eagles and Ravens was actually cancelled because the Ravens refused to play on the turf. I associated this stadium more with the original green carpet. Giants Stadium in grass (2000-2002) - Most of this stadium’s history was played on an artificial surface, from Astroturf from 1976-1999 to Fieldturf from 2003 to it’s last season. Still strange that this stadium once had grass despite fielding a Super Bowl appearing team (2000 Giants) and a memorable MNF game (Monday Night Miracle between Jets and Dolphins). 2000 NY Giants NFL Films Dolphins @ Jets from 2000 Foxboro Stadium in Astroturf (1971-1990). This stadium had more seasons in Astroturf than grass, but I’m more used to seeing this stadium with grass. Didn’t help that the Patriots were mostly awful during this period (hard to forget since the team’s dominance since 2001) 1985 Patriots NFL Films Soldier Field in Astroturf (1971-1987) – So weird to see the Bears play home games on Astroturf. Too young to actually remember the 85 Bears as I was in diapers. If it weren’t for the famed columns, it would almost pass as a different stadium. Walter Payton highlights Tropicana Field in Astroturf (1998-2000) – This stadium has had Fieldturf for so long that it’s easy to forget that this stadium had the original green carpet as a playing surface. Riverfront Stadium/Cinergy Field in grass (2000-2002) – The final years of this ballpark (as the Great American Ballpark was being built) were played on grass but the 70s Big Red Machine teams and the 1990 Reds team that won the WS had to play on Astroturf. Paul Brown Stadium in grass (2000-2003) – More used to this stadium with Fieldturf and that the Bengals played on Astroturf at Riverfront Stadium beforehand. Orange Bowl in Polyturf (1970-1975) – So weird that the undefeated 1972 Miami Dolphins played their home games on artificial turf. I always had assumed that the Dolphins always played their home games on grass. 1972 Dolphins NFL films M&T Bank Stadium in Artificial Turf (Sportexe Momentum Turf) (2003-2015) – More used to the Ravens playing their home games on grass. Toss-ups Arrowhead Stadium - Unlike the Bears, 49ers, Dolphins, & Patriots, I'm old enough to remember when the Chiefs still played on Astroturf but switch to grass in 1994 (possibility to protect an aging Joe Montana, who still something left in the tank). But the Chiefs have played on grass for so long now it easy to forget that they played home games on artificial turf. Royals/Kauffman Stadium - With the recent renovations and grass playing field since 1995, this stadium has aged quiet well despite the teams often playing poorly (except for the Pennant-winning teams of 2014 & 2015, with the latter winning it all). But for older Royal fans, this stadium may be more associated with the playoff teams of the 70s and 80s led by George Brett on an Astroturf surface. Busch Memorial Stadium - This stadium original had grass but switched to Astroturf in the 70s and switched back to grass in 1996. The Cardinals appeared in 3 World Series in the 1980s (winning it all in 1982). This stadium may had been the only Cookie Cutter stadium that aged better during its final years when the team was managed by Tony LaRussa and fielded winning teams.
  8. A very fun project to design. NFL teams playing in the Major League Soccer. AFC complete today, anda tomorroy I'll post the NFC. AFC EAST
  9. ok so right now i have 3 teams that i did, the seahawks, the vikings and the broncos its sick seahawks: vikings: broncos: the seahawks sleeve stripes were hard to do but overall these are all pretty basic. what yall think?
  10. Hello, it's my first time in a good while doing a logo series, but I thought I had some stuff worth sharing. This little series is based on the premise of the owners of the Milwaukee Bucks deciding to expand on their sports holdings and launch expansion teams in various other leagues. I have dubbed this hypothetical enterprise the Deer Sports Empire. Currently, aside from the Bucks they own the Wisconsin Herd. I will be leaving the logos for those teams as is, partially because I really like them and partially because the idea is the owners are launching new teams with similar branding touches (colors, font, etc). I also will not be touching MLB or giving them an NFL team as there's no world where those things would happen. These are the teams and leagues I plan to do so far. A couple are already done or close to finished. As suggestions (hopefully) are made and new ideas come to me I may add to this list. If anyone has a team in a league they would like to see, feel free to make suggestions. I dont have uniform templates for all the different sports so I'm just focusing on uniforms right now. Posted Logos... WNBA: Milwaukee Does (Vers 2) ... Click here for Vers 1 MLS: Cream City SC (Vers 2) ... Click here for Vers 1 IFL: Milwaukee Staghorns --> Evolved from a swing-and-miss at a Mustangs Arena Football revival, which can be seen by scrolling through.

  11. So in case you haven't seen it in the College Football 2020 thread, Kellen Mond seems to be hinting that the Aggies will be moving back to their throwbacks as the primary look. Compounding that with the debate on whether the Aggies should keep or dump the bevel, I thought I'd take a stab at some concepts, as well as needing a mental break from my 1972 Project. While I'm not against the possible changes, it does seem a step down from what they're currently wearing with the racing stripes. Rather than flood that thread with some ideas, I'll take my talents here and see what you all think: This was in essence what I put in the 2020 thread, albeit on a Nike template, so I migrated it to an almost current Adidas template. The bevels are all gone, everywhere which will be the case on anything posted here. This one sees the helmet gain a helmet stripe to match the pants and satiate those that say there's no cohesion between helmet, jerseys and pants. Otherwise, everything really stays the same. This one sees the opposite direction as Option A, with the pant stripes going away, keeping the hip logo, but the stripeless pants now create harmony between them and the helmets. Jerseys remain unchanged. As was pointed out to me in the 2020 thread, Texas A&M's look is inspired by the 70's look, but they didn't go all the way with it. This is the "they went all the way with it" option, with everything having a double stripe on it. Let me know what y'all think, what you guy's might wanna see out of this. I hadn't thought of alternates for these, but they're probably coming as well, so as I always seem to say: C&C welcome!
  12. Welcome all of you to OCLAF! The Old-Continent League of American Football. Hi, everyone. I'm a Spanish graphic designer and I would like to introduce you to my personal project. What would an NFL-style league look like in Europe? What name would the teams have and in which cities would they reside? My answer to all these questions is the OCLAF. For five years I have been gradually developing all the concepts: team names, logos and uniforms. They are definitive so they cannot be changed but I will appreciate all your evaluations in this regard. Thank you! The principal logos of the league. Why this logo? Alternate version. 32 cities in 25 countries. At this point I thought about what the organization of the league would be like. Due to the idiosyncrasy of Europe I decided to divide it into four conferences with two divisions each. The Play-offs will be played by the best two players in each division and the champions of each conference will play the final four known as the Galaxy Bowl. Ladys and gentlemen, I'm honored to introduce you THE TEAMS: _____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ I really think it's not bad to start with. To be continue. Thank you for your attention.
  13. Hi. I'm here to fix the NFL's uniforms. Nike has taken over and left us with some bad designs, and theres a few nagging things out there that have just held on, simply because people never bothered to fix them. I'm here to tweak (Maybe overhaul) the NFL's uniforms. Rules I gave myself for this: - One helmet shell, but facemasks and decals can change - Not changing any logos or colors, just uniforms - Color Rush is not mandatory, some teams will have them, some teams won't. - Ignoring the 3 year helmet, 5 year jersey change rule - Not really going in any order, might not even do all 32 - Colors were taken from the logos themselves or from teamcolorcodes.com (yes the colts are still royal blue I just used their digital color) - Yes they were done in Paint so they're not the *cleanest* but I did my best. - Assume mixing and matching is allowed, I won't show *all* combinations but can show one if requested - Moving Nike patch to chest across all teams I'll start off with 2, since my first (Colts) is very simple. Biggest changes are White Mask, number font, and stripe consistency. Next up, the LA Chargers. It's obvious they're getting new uniforms. Went bold on the Whites, Navy is the Color Rush alternate. Kept the Agency-esque font Any comments and criticism is welcomed!
  14. Intro. The year is 2004, and three Southern Ontario record labels hosting 6 local bands have combined to form a soccer league. Mantis Productions in Toronto, Mojo Records in Barrie and Tuesday Morning Records in Ottawa have all joined forces to create the Tuesday Morning Premier League. Concept. I'll be designing logos for each team and jersey (home, away and clash as well as goalkeepers kits for all 6 teams.) Sponsors will be either local or fictional brands tied into each band name, with backstory on each. Map. Teams. All of these teams are based on bands I either previously played in or have friends who played in. I've cleared the names with all band members. Windup Fox and (Norman Ross) Weichel are music projects that still exist. Team Locations. Bad Mojo (Orléans, Ontario) Panic Button FC (East London, Ontario) Slangdoll SC (Toronto) Stereoface SC (North London, Ontario) Weichel FC (Perry Sound, Ontario) Windup Fox FC (Ottawa, Ontario)

    XFL Revamp

    I am back with some inspiration after finishing a marketing project on the new XFL. It got me thinking about what the XFL could look like in a non-templated world, and also led me to trace out a new football template. I started with the LA Wildcats, and immediately dropped the black. I mean they play outdoors in the springtime of Los Angeles and decided to wear black! Insted I moved orange to the primary, similar to the creamsicle bucs, with some modern elements. Most notably, "wildcat scratch marks," on the sleeves, and a dynamic striping pattern that reflects the logo. I plan to work on all 8 teams, and give more options to some teams if I see fit. .
  16. The British Gridiron League (BGL) brings American Football to the United Kingdom and Ireland, and to Europe. With the playing of the NFL London games, the sport has gained popularity in the country. The creation of a separate league in the British Isles allows for the sport to be played there, without the NFL having to commit to having a full team there. The NFL would still play the London Series. The league would start with 10 12 teams, divided into a North Division and a South Division. The rules would be mostly the same as the NFL, *except with XFL-style kickoffs*. South Division London Knights Southampton Storm Spitfires Bristol Marauders Birmingham Cannons Cardiff Dragons Belfast Dublin Emeralds North Division Edinburgh Highlanders Kelpies Manchester Industry Liverpool Steamers Glasgow Griffons Leeds Owls Newcastle Vibe The season would run for 14 weeks, from the beginning of April through July. Each team would play each of their division opponents twice, and 3 of the teams from the other division. Each team would get one bye week. The playoffs would run over a course of four weeks, with a week between the Division Semis and Division Finals, and 2 weeks between the Division Finals and League Championship. League Logo/Shield Banner Logo Team Locations Poster C&C Welcome and appreciated, it may be a few days before I can get any actual team concepts going, I've been busy with school and the like. Just wanted to get the league concept on here.
  17. So, after watching the game last night, it occurred to me that the Atlanta Falcons have some untapped potential with their identity, and could actually look really good. Any and all feedback welcome! Here's my fix starting with logo: Falcons Logo Concept by HuntTheJones (Based on the combination of the Throwback Logo & Current Logo) So the first is obvious. Take the old logo that's still so popular among the fanbase (at least the ones I know) and the current logo (which I think is actually pretty good) and combine them for a modernized version to make everyone happy. Up next, turf design: Falcons Turf Concept for Mercedes-Benz Stadium Last night made it clear that the throwback turf design is the look Atlanta needs. That said, there is nothing wrong with the current font style they have. So, sticking with the theme of the logo, find a happy medium. Up next, helmet design: Falcons Helmet Concept Nice and simple, just like the helmet they already have. A gloss black shell with nothing but the new logo on each side gets the job done. Up next, uniform design: Black Home Primary White Road Primary Red Home Alternate This is my favorite part. The basis is that each design is based on the throwback worn last night. Their current design is outdated, and nothing stands the test of time like the classic. So, put the current number font, new logo on the sleeves, and "ATLANTA" in small block on the chest. Keep the same pants design as well, just make the primary the old school silver. Rotate white and all black in the mix so you never get stale. Black jersey becomes primary Home, White jersey goes back to Black numbers, & Red jersey becomes alternate. C&C welcome!
  18. Hey everyone, It's been a long time since I've posted on the boards but I am back with a project that I have been wanting to do for awhile now. Re-designing the NFL has always been an idea of mine but I never had the time. Well, over summer I finally had some time, got a new/faster computer and started going to work. Anyone who has followed my other threads, know that I'm not a big logo designer but I learned how to use Illustrator and with this new knowledge, there will be some logo changes to the league. Before I get started, I just want to lay down some guidelines for this thread. One helmet rule still applies (I don't hate this rule because I don't want NFL teams having multiple different helmets like in college). Color Rush uniforms for every team No NFL 100 logo on helmets and uniforms I'll start out with my favorite team's division and work through the NFC, then the AFC, and then I might finish it out with a few surprises. In my next post I'll have the Packers' concepts. Alright here we go. NFC NORTH NFC EAST NFC SOUTH NFC WEST Chicago Bears Dallas Cowboys v2.0 Atlanta Falcons v2.0 Arizona Cardinals 2.0 3.0 Detroit Lions v2.0 v3.0 New York Giants Carolina Panthers v2.0 Los Angeles Rams Green Bay Packers Philadelphia Eagles v2.0 v3.0 New Orleans Saints San Francisco 49ers v2.0 Minnesota Vikings v2.0 Washington Redtails v2.0 v3.0 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Seattle Seahawks v2.0 AFC NORTH AFC EAST AFC SOUTH AFC WEST Baltimore Ravens Buffalo Bills Houston Texans Denver Broncos Cleveland Browns Miami Dolphins Indianapolis Colts Kansas City Chiefs Cincinnati Bengals New England Patriots Jacksonville Jaguars Las Vegas Raiders Pittsburgh Steelers New York Jets v2.0 Tennessee Titans Los Angeles Chargers
  19. I have been looking at doing concept football helmets for some of the Mid-American Conference (MAC) teams. A lot of family and friends, including myself, went to MAC schools. I have a few concepts done. First up: Bowling Green State University Nickname: Falcons Colors: Orange and Brown Note: There are a lot of bird logos. Tried to do something different. Current and past helmets and logos: Concept:

    AFA

    Welcome to the American Football Association! This simulation football league will be kicking off in real-time in February of 2020, but don't hold your breath because info, teams and more will be rolled out shortly.
  21. Kent State - Golden Flashes concepts
  22. I'm the commissioner of the OklahomIraqis League (The OIL), which is a fantasy football league that began in 2006 in Iraq. I recently started toying around in Photoshop and created stadiums for all 42 teams: okiraqi.org/stadiums Since I'm still pretty new to Photoshop (and graphic design in general), I'd appreciate it if you point out ways I could make things look more realistic. One thing I haven't been able to get right is keeping the grass or turf texture when applying graphics to the field and end zones. Otherwise, I'm just happy to show off the stadiums while we get through the long, awful offseason. Below is the one for DominationStation (which, yes, is a dumb name, but it's not my team). The rest are at the above link.
  23. Hey there! Were you disappointed in an unexciting Super Bowl culminating in the Evil Empire hoisting yet another Lombardi Trophy? Need a bigger fix of football and the AAF isn't doing the trick? Want to see someone display marginal design skills and creativity through a cavalcade of slightly altered striping patterns, new fonts, and superfluous recolors before inevitably burning out and stopping 2/3 of the way through the league? Then you have come to the right place! In the posts that follow, you will see my staid re-imaginings of the National Football League, starting, as nearly every one of these threads does, with the Arizona Cardinals, because that's how the alphabet works. ARIZONA CARDINALS The one distinctive trait of their uniforms during their time in the Copper State has been the incorporation of the state flag on the sleeves from the late 90s to mid 00s, so that's the main source of inspiration. The team colors are altered to reflect this (bye-bye black) and a red facemask replaces the gray one of yore, removing yet another extraneous color from the Cardinals colorway. The uniforms fit the flag onto the sleeve caps, and the solitary angular stripe on the pants carries from the flag as well. The alternate also draws heavily from the flag. Other than that, the red pants are back (only to be used with the white jersey), and a new number font accompanies these changes. Let me know which team you want to see next. I welcome your feedback.
  24. Hello everyone! I'm back with a project many of y'all are familiar with. My personal football league; the Professional American Football Association. But this time I'm on the computer. I've been working a lot to improve my craft and am happy with the results. Enough so I think you guys will be happy to see the teams y'all helped create be back and better than ever. I originally planned to post this weekend but got a little excited and wanna get some feedback, so I'm posting it now. Thanks to @oldschoolvikings for the use of his template. I'm going to be presenting the teams and their home and away uniforms first. And once I finish each division, then I will upload alternate uniforms and throwback uniforms. I will also be posting a short history with each team I upload along with a signature in case someone would want one. Currently its the offseason for the league. Next season will be it's 100th season. So most teams will receive a throwback. We'll start with the Northeast Division and in the City of Brotherly Love! It should be uploaded soon. Hope you guys enjoy!
