  1. Hey guys, I've been a long time lurker here but I've never really gotten around to posting for myself until now. In honor of Oklahoma State's 125th anniversary, I recently ran a project where, week by week, I would recreate a football uniform from the school's past using the modern Mach Speed template and do a (sometimes brief, sometimes not) writeup on the period that uniform was from. After I'd finished the series, a friend of mine suggested that I share the project here as well since you all might enjoy it, and since then I've been contemplating the best way to go about that. I didn't want to just dump the whole thing in a single post here as it'd definitely come out as a mess, but it also didn't make sense to hold them week in and week out when you can just view the entire finished series elsewhere, so I think the best middle ground I found was to just post them one by one in this thread every couple of days with the original writeups included. So, with that, here's my original first entry: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- My first pick is one that I don't see brought up often for any reason other than the helmet: the 1967-1968 home set, featuring the Bronc Rider in all its glory. (click for fullsize) The '67 and '68 squads weren't particularly notable in terms of performance, chalking up 4-5-1 and 3-7 seasons along with an upset of #3 ranked Colorado, but this set is significant for featuring a number of firsts for Oklahoma State. Although the Bronc Rider was likely in use at the university as early as 1942 and was used by various other sports and organizations on campus, these two seasons mark the only time that the logo has ever appeared anywhere on an OSU football uniform (the sole exception being a fauxback helmet in 2014). The Bronc Rider was also the first logo or brand to ever be used on an Oklahoma State helmet, with past years (and even the first games of the '67 season) simply featuring helmet numbers and/or striping. Finally, this uniform marks the first time that Oklahoma State wore an orange helmet since their days as OA&M; they would promptly return to white beginning in the 1969 season, dropping the Bronc Rider for a diagonal OSU design. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you want to spoil yourself on the full series, you can either view it here on OrangePower.com or find the series on my Twitter account. Otherwise, I'm looking forward to posting the next entry soon!
  2. My alma-matter, graduating class of 2014. I'm particularly a Mason basketball fan; my freshmen year witnessed the Men's basketball Cinderella-story trip to the Final Four, in 2006. Unforgettable. The current look, adopted in 2004, is passable for now, but as an ever-growing university presence in America, Mason Nation is certainly due for a refreshed athletic aesthetic. See the link to a PDF below for a full presentation of the rebrand and its elements: http://issuu.com/ianbakar/docs/2015gmu_rebrandproposal_ianbakar On Behance: https://www.behance.net/gallery/32127179/Mason-Patriots-%28GMU%29-University-Athletics-Rebrand

  5. Hey guys! I've taken a long break from making concepts, but I'm back! I've got three concepts made: Colorado, Washington, and Arizona. Starting with Arizona. The Wildcats are pretty much ruined by Nike. They had a nice, double stripe look going when Nike invaded. My main goal was to return it. I applied it to the helmet, shoulders, and pants, and also restored the Tuscon Bold font (courtesy of Conrad). It was pretty simple overall here. Nike did okay with Colorado, but I still love the Northwestern-style striping they used. Combining the two sets was my main goal here. Simple, classic look for the Huskies. Just the way it should be (good riddance, Nike). I may do more concepts, but I just started with this. Hit me up!

  6. As you may have already guessed from the title, this thread will have my attempts at making over some of the NCAA's worst logos. Think of this as "Extreme Makeover: Collegiate Logo Edition" and that's exactly what this thread will be. For each college or university of my choosing, I will design up to four logos. This will be on a weekly basis, and for this inaugural post, I will be making over the logos for the Savage Storm of Southeastern Oklahoma State University. First, here is a little info on the university: Name of College/University: Southeastern Oklahoma State University Nickname: Savage Storm Colors: Blue and Gold NCAA Division: II Conference: Great American Conference Location: Durant, Oklahoma Established: 1909 as Southeastern State Normal School Famous Alumni: Reba McEntire, Dennis Rodman, Brett Butler (the baseball player, not the comedic actress) Current Logo: Looking at this logo, it's obvious that the first thing that stood out was that it's a NFL ripoff, which is upsetting. Besides that, the blue and the black are close to each other, making for a cruddy logo. I originally was going to do another Oklahoma school, Oklahoma Panhandle State, for this first post, but I just couldn't figure out how to best execute my plan of attack for that school. I may come back to that school at some point in the future, but for now, let's look at what I did for the Savage Storm: The main mission with these logos was that I wanted this school to stand out so I took out the black and used their current color scheme of Pantone 2748 C (the blue) and Pantone 109 C (the gold) and made four logos. The logo in the upper-left is the primary logo, and it's a gold-outlined blue outline map of the state of Oklahoma which is then tilted, along with "SE" (as the school is sometimes known as in Oklahoma) written in gold lightning. The lower left logo is the secondary logo and consists of two tilted rectangles, one blue and one gold, with "SAVAGE" written in gold on the blue rectangle and "STORM" written in blue on the gold rectangle. The four lightning bolts (two gold with blue outlines on top, two blue with gold outlines on bottom) complete the logo design. The logo on the upper-right is a tertiary logo and consists of a blue tilted rectangle with "SOUTHEASTERN" written in gold, a thinner gold tilted rectangle with "OKLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY" written in blue, and six lightning bolts; three on top in gold with blue outlines, and three on bottom in blue with gold outlines. The last logo is extra and is meant for the football team's helmet (not exclusively). It is simply a tilted "SOSU" written in gold with blue outlines, along with a blue counter space in the "O" and a gold lightning bolt in the middle. How do you all think I did with this makeover? C&C is more than appreciated, not only with the logos, but with this thread idea. Also, you can submit the name of a NCAA school you think has a bad logo and I just might do that school in the coming weeks.
  7. So I have been working on this logo for a while now, and I think that I am ready to share. The inspiration behind the idea is actually the new Georgia Bulldogs logo with the front facing bulldog head. Took a trip to Athens for a game with my girlfriend and saw it on merchandise and loved it. The rest is history. Let me know what y'all think. It is blurry and has my name in it right now because that is my attempt to keep it from getting snagged my some random t-shirt guy. I have a high quality image made, just wanted to throw that out there before it was questioned.
  8. What are the worst all-time games you can think of, uniform-wise? I can't imagine any worse than this, if you count preseason:
  9. After watching our team get stepped on the last two weeks (once in chrome, the next in the regular away uni with gradient numbers) I decided that I'm sick of the uniforms. Terrible font, design, and inspiration. The Home set that I have finished, is reminiscent of the Teddy Bruschi era, mixed with the Nick Foles/Matt Scott era. I thought this brought a nice sense of unity to the cats uniform. Away set coming soon!! And here are the Alternate Red Jersey and Pants. No red helmet! And the White Jersey!! For this concept, The Red pants can only be worn with red jerseys. Cleaner look IMO.
  10. Some uniform changes are the best thing ever, changing or fixing all the worst mistakes from before and make the team look amazing and professional, and then there's those changes just absolutely destroy the look of the team before and look completely unnecessary. Here's a couple examples The St. Louis Blues Good change To To bad change Back to good
  11. Anyone else see the new TCU Football uniforms for next season?? I think that NIKE did not do a great job with the "frog skin" sublimation and could've utilized it in a much more appealing way, disappointment in my eyes. If anyone else can find better pictures of the uniforms please add them to this!
  12. Like mgdmhl's Sports Font Database, this thread will host all team colors for major leagues, and other select minor leagues. The codes will go like this. Winnipeg Jets: Navy HEX 002E62 RGB 0, 46, 98 CMYK 100, 53 ,0 ,1 PMS 295 Hope you enjoy and thanks for reading! ECUFan25 MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks: Red HEX A71930 RGB 167, 25, 48 CMYK: 0, 85, 71, 34 PMS: 187 Black HEX 000000 RGB 0, 0, 0 PMS 30 Gold HEX DBCEAC RGB 219, 206, 172 CMYK 0, 5, 21, 14 PMS 5797 Atlanta Braves: Blue HEX 002F5F RGB 0, 97, 45 CMYK 100, 50, 0, 62 PMS 540 Red HEX B71234 RGB 183, 18, 52 CMYK 0, 90, 71, 28 PMS 193 Baltimore Orioles: Orange HEX ED4C09 RGB 237, 76, 9 CMYK 0, 67, 96, 9 PMS 172 Black HEX 000000 RGB 0, 0, 0 PMS 30 More to come soon!
  13. A few years ago, I posted a concept design for a fictional team I called the Eliot Brigade. Since, this team has become a sort of pet project of mine, and I've spent time off and on crafting different identities for the team (it even made an appearance in the American Soccer Federation). I'm back now with an updated name, Maine State, and identity, featuring a deeper history, and updated logos and uniforms. The project can be found at the link below (due to the size of the image itself and my lack of photobucket bandwidth, I just decided to host it on behance). https://www.behance.net/gallery/23703095/Maine-State-University-Brigade The main idea of the identity was to combine aspects of numerous other college football teams and their design evolution. I was specifically inspired by TCU, Ohio State's alternates, and the service academy pro combat uniforms. I hope you enjoy, and I look forward to your C+C!
  14. This is my first concept thread in a while, and my last college football thread kinda fell flat on its face, plus I became overwhelmed with work and school. But that's enough of that. This is also more of a challenge for me. Can I get through all of the Top 25 before the season starts in 23 days? Lets find out. 25. Tennessee I was a fan of what Nike did for the Vols. I think the new look is very good. That being said I felt the jerseys could use stripes, so that's the biggest change to the home/road looks that remain largely unchanged aside from the double stripes that were worn in the 80's, plus the checkerboard pattern was added to the back of the collar. On the alternate, I changed things up a little. I went with the Steelers Batman looking jersey, and made it black. I was looking to go a little outside the box from their normal set, but didn't want to go too far. With that in mind, the black uniform would not be interchangeable with the normal home/road. C and C welcome as always.
  15. A few examples: ---1990s teal: Original Grizzlies ---MLB light-blue road unis: Phillies or Expos (I actually like how that trend looked in general) ---NFL side panels: Broncos ---NFL piping: It all sucks. lol ---MLB/NBA roundel logo: Does the Celtics logo count? ---NCAAF BFBS: Washington Huskies ---NCAAF GFGS: Tennessee Volunteers (still prefer the orange) ---NCAABB BFBS: The vast majority suck so not sure. ---NCAABB GFGS: Maybe West Virginia ---NBA multicolored or gradient jersey: Kings half-and-half. Sorry, but the Raptors front-and-back annoyed the heck out of me and I was never enamored with the Hawks' mid-1990s look (though it has grown on me somewhat). ---NFL Nike rebrand: Seahawks
  16. Some schools have patterns and designs that are known specifically with certain schools and teams (like UNC, FSU, Tennessee, etc.). If you know of any other patterns that haven't been listed please post them. And if anyone could make versions of the ones shown that are on helmets or other objects, like the Maryland helmet below, into flat versions, like the second Oregon one below, so people in the concept section can use them that would be great. North Carolina Tar Heels Florida State Seminoles Tennessee Vols (Checkerboard) Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (Honeycomb) Maryland Terrapins (Maryland Flag and Turtle Shell) Oregon Ducks (Both types of feathers)
  17. What are your favorite color schemes? This doesn't necessarily mean how they integrate the schemes into the logos and/or uniforms, just the combinations of colors themselves. Here are a few of mine: NFL---Dolphins, Redskins, Packers, Broncos (1980s-1996) NBA---Hornets (original and current), Hornets (during their New Orleans time), Bucks (1980s "Irish Rainbow"), Nuggets (rainbow), Nuggets (current), Spurs (1990s "fiesta" color scheme; would've been great to see them do something with it on their uniforms), Mavericks (original), Suns (pre-2000s, loved when they had black to go with purple and orange) MLB---Phillies (one of the best red-white-and-blue combos, and if you consider cream part of it it's awesome), Giants/Orioles (black and orange look great in baseball), Diamondbacks (pre-2007), Padres (1970s-1980s, brown, yellow, and orange together), Royals, Athletics, Mariners NHL---Mighty Ducks (original), Islanders, Rangers, Wild, Blackhawks, Canucks (current), Flyers, Bruins (when they wore brown instead of black) College---Virginia Tech, Ohio State, Coastal Carolina, Florida Gulf Coast, Florida State, Temple (pre-black), Tulsa, Tulane, Clemson, Arizona (when you include copper), Central Michigan, Indiana, Indiana State (before they made their shade of blue more generic), Bowling Green
  18. KU, in preparation for the World University Games in South Korea has played it's first exhibition game against Canada. KU-SA beat the Canadians 91-83. In case your wondering, KU is the representative of the USA is the tournament.
  19. Certain eras make good sports teams, and bad ones (ie: Edmonton Oilers), but wearing certain uniforms almost make a team better. Like the Avalanche in their Pre-edge jerseys, or the LA Kings in Black and white all time, just to name a few. What other ones have you found? Not like the championship game in white or dark colors, but the overall look... Like How the Devil Rays never did that well, but when they became the Rays, they were way better, or the Mighty Ducks only made the playoffs 4 times, but the Anaheim Ducks have only missed the playoffs twice since the switch.
  20. As I have mentioned in the past I love Bethany College's Helmets. Uniforms aren't bad. Not perfect, but not terrible. Next up is Kalamazoo - Simple Uniform + I love the helmet idea. What are some of your favorite designs for the small schools?
  21. As of today Cincinnati is officially with Under Armour, and there are two major changes right off the bat. First, the numbers will no longer be italic, which will look a lot cleaner. Second, UA has introduced the "Cincinnati Stripe", which will apear on all uniforms and is derived from campus landmarks: Press release and links to brand guide and Cincinnati stripe here: http://www.gobearcats.com/genrel/040215aac.html
  22. Barring a Cleveland-esque mega leak, new Colorado football uniforms are to be released this Friday. In the meantime, the Buffs throwing us a few teasers leading up to the big unveiling: Clean road jersey. CHECK. Golden dome. CHECK. Logo unchanged. CHECK. So far so good. No need to hit the panic button quite yet.
  23. Hi guys, this is a redesign of the Liberty Bowl logo that I've finished a couple of months ago, but never uploaded before. Many NCAA bowl logos were updated or completely redesigned in the past months or years and I think this one could deserve an overhaul as well. I just think the current one looks completely outdated, specially because of this terrible emboss filter they've decided to put on. Comments are welcome as usual... UPDATE: "BOWL" now typeset using a non-italic font without spikes. Current logo Before After Logo detail
  24. Hey guys, First time posting a new concept. I've just joined officially, but I've lurked around for years. Just a couple stabs at updating what LSU wears currently. I wanted my first to be something I knew (LSU, obviously) and also something that would be a challenge to update without giving up the equity LSU already has in their looks. The template I used I found on here, but I can't seem to locate the link to it now for reference. Will do when I find it with an update. This is LSU's current look. Thanks!
  25. So as the Final Four ends, it is officially (for me at least) baseball season. The other day I was watching a NCAA baseball game on ESPNU between the Oregon Ducks and their in-state rivals, Oregon State. All I could think of while watching the game was, how awful Oregon's uniforms were. They were pinstriped in front and solid in the back! For me I love a conservative and classy look for ball clubs, whether it's at the high school level, college level, or in the pros. But I get it, Oregon is crazy and since they have Nike in their back-yard, I thought I should mock up some uniforms that fuse together classy and Oregoness. C&C much appreciated as usual. Thanks for viewing. Home Sets: Away Sets:
