  1. I always wanted the Jags to have a spotted helmet to rival what the Bengals have, so I put together some concepts and jerseys. What do you think? These were all created using UniMockups Photoshop templates.
  2. With the Season about to start, I figured now would be a good time to finally finish restart my long awaited 32-team NBA project. Going in order isn't going to be possible for me, so I'm going to post these as I gain ideas for them. Starting with...the Detroit Pistons. I always liked the 2002 recolor of the 90's teal horse logo for Detroit. It actually has some character to it, other than the plain red/blue basketball that we've seen different variations of. THis time around, I'm removing the navy, going full red/blue/silver. Now for the Uniforms. Association/Icon: I brought the recolored horse-head wordmark to the front of the jerseys (just like the 90's Grant Hill-era), I swapped the stripe colors back to normal, and the number gets the logo treatment with the outline. "DP" goes on the shorts leg, while the horse-ball goes on the waistband. Statement: I brought back the fan-beloved red alternate. It's a simple recolor, really, but the fans adored it, so back in the rotation it goes. City: For as much flak as the pistons get for their "Motor City" alternates (especially on these boards), It is an actual nickname for the city. Silver, mostly used for trim on the main jerseys, becomes the base. The stripes bring back the teal, gold, and red of the Grant Hill-era, while black and gold go on the wordmark & numbers. The waistband, shorts trim, and neckline are half teal/half red, corresponding with the nearest stripe.
  3. The second I heard about the NHL players returning to the winter Olympics, I immediately became super excited for it again. Not that I didn't watch the 2018 olympics, but it was way less exciting. With my excitement came an idea to redesign all the olympic country designs. I think most of us are getting a little tired of Nike's one design fits all template they used for international hockey. At least I'm pretty done with it. I'm guessing Nike will have the contract for international uniforms for awhile, but I wanted to come up with some actual original ideas that make sense for each country. No more wing designs on every uniform sleeve. No more overpowering amount of black on team Canada. Up first, my home country and the team that WILL win the gold medal, you heard it here first, Team Canada. These images were designed for instagram, and I'll admit, I'm a little lazy to change it, so they won't all seamlessly line up like they will on instagram. I really wanted to incorporate aspects from Canada hockey history in these uniforms. I did take heavy inspiration from the heritage uniforms that Nike released a year ago. I used that idea, combined with the look from the 1928, 1932, 1936 Olympics and 2002 Olympic alternate with the maple leaf and arched "Canada" below it. I love using the maple leaf as a sort of arm stripe that adds just enough to the uniform to keep it from being boring, but doesn't add too much crazy detail. I hope Nike doesn't go back to the sleeve wings. The white uniform is just a reversed version, while keeping the red shoulders. Finally, the Heritage uniform pays homage to the 1982 world junior uniforms. The shoulder striping comes from a uniform I found online, but for the life of me, I can't figure out what year it came from, but I liked the extra detail. It's nothing crazy, and I'm sure there are some better concepts out there, but I love a simplistic uniform for the Olympics. It brings history in, but feels modern at the same time. I used and NHL adidas style template, so I didn't add a Nike or Adidas logo for that matter. Since it wouldn't fit Nike's template, but they also won't be made by Adidas I'm guessing.
  4. I graduated from CCU and coming off the greatest season in program history I wanted to make a uniform concept. Thanks to @MChrome's template I was able to make the jersey's below. My main reason for doing this concept is because for whatever reason we refuse to incorporate one of our official colors (bronze), into our jersey's. And this across all sports! The meaning of our colors Teal: Ocean Water Bronze: Beach Sand Black: Our former affiliation with the University of South Carolina (the other USC). We were known as USC-Coastal in the past
  5. Hi everyone, I have recently started a new project where I have made it a goal of mine to combine all of the sports logos from NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB (and at times MLS) from all of the major cities in the U.S. and Canada to create a singular city logo. I know this has been done countless times before but the way my designs stand out is they are more cohesive. They feel less like something was Frankenstein'd together and can almost act as a standalone logo. Consider this the definitive collection. I say this with confidence because they were all composed in Adobe Illustrator with linework redone to make the designs more seamless, images rendered in crisp high resolution quality, each one taking several hours of work and trial and error and the cherry on top of the cake is that I own my own print shop so I can make stickers and shirts out of these designs. It's a true passion project for me. My journey began when I was first getting serious about graphic design, the summer right before I enrolled at DePaul in 2013. I created a mashup of all the Chicago logos because I wanted my own version of it. All the variations I had seen online did not do the city justice and I wanted something genuinely more badass that wouldn't look cheesy. I dubbed it "The Chicago Beast". It was cool for a few years and then I sort of forgot about it - well in 2019 I decided to take another crack at it and make a wildly popular rendition of this logo mashup combination - you may have seen it online (I made a North Side - Cubs and a South Side - White Sox version. Both featured elements of the Blackhawks, Bears and Bulls. I have made slightly different variations - some including the 6 star Chicago flag and others with different color arrangements. Fast forward to 2021 - A whole year of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown had me yearning for another creative project that I can do for fun. I decided - why not give every city this same treatment? And so I did - "Major League Remix" (#MajorLeagueRemix). I will be posting the designs in this thread and would love some feedback! While I do consider these designs to be 'complete', as a true designer, I know there is always room for improvement, especially since teams change logos frequently. A few things to note (ground rules) for my concepts: They don't necessarily have to use the entire design of the logo in the mashup. They can be as little or as much as possible - the only rule is they have to look cohesive and make sense - no Frankenstein work! I often use past versions of team logos although I try to use the current ones as much as I can. This is because my goal is to make the logo look good, and if I use the core logo, it may not look the best. I have struggled a lot to piece some of these together because of the lack of uniqueness, clean design or symmetry so I have had to resort to alternates. Colors are fair game - as long as they are pulled directly from within the color palette of the city's sports logos. They all have a white border with rounded corners for consistency and also to set them up for sticker printing. That is all! I am so glad to be a part of this awesome forum - I can't think of a more perfect place to post this kind of work on the internet.

  6. North American Collegiate Athletics (NACA) Hockey Concepts In this thread I will be adding my concepts for (made up) colleges and their hockey teams. This is going to be a long project I imagine and so far I only have a couple teams complete but I plan on making somewhere between 20-50 (maybe more?) teams across North America (not just the US) which will populate multiple 'conferences' or divisions. I also plan on making peripheral graphics for league logos, etc. My main goal for all these teams is to create a unique brand based around non-traditional mascots/ team names and color schemes!

(HOPEFULLY)
  7. I have 2 more kit concepts for Atlanta United FC. One is an updated version of a concept I did back in 2018 that combines the "5 Stripes" identity with the Golden Spike used in the club's branding and origin story. The other is a sash concept to change up the aesthetic a little bit, but still attempted to keep the look classic and clean.
  8. I wanted to get this out there before my love for this team goes out with Deshaun. This is some stuff I've been working on for while but hadn't made time to post it. The Houston Texans: One of the more "meh" names in the NFL. Used once before by a World League team in 1974-75 and named with the blessing of the former Dallas Texans now known the Kansas City Chiefs. When I saw the name unveiled, especially with the preceding video made everyone on think it would be bull related, I was underwhelmed. This paired with a RWB color scheme and navy uniforms that at the time would had been the 9th! navy jersey in use as a primary dark, disappointed me even further. (That makes this what, the 20, 30-something time I've complained about the navy jerseys?) While I like our Battle Red and white jerseys, I still think of what could been with the other identities mentioned in the poll preceding to the unveiling: So without further adieu I present to you: The Texans That Never Were. HOUSTON APOLLOS (V.2) HOUSTON BOBCATS HOUSTON STALLIONS HOUSTON WILDCATTERS
  9. 2021 brings a new home kit for Atlanta United. I know gradients/fades are gimmicky and don't hold up well over time, but I don't hate it in this context for some reason. I'm at least hoping Atlanta goes back to the 5 stripes aesthetic that they're originally known for. I also hope they do something special for their 5th anniversary playing in ATL to make this edition more fun and collectible.
  10. Hey ya'll, So I started this project back in the spring (when quarantine hit), not intending for this to be anything serious. This was just something fun I could do from home while everything was locked down. But over the course of this year, I've just been knocking out 2-3 sets per week in my free time. And lo and behold, I've finally gotten through all 32 teams! Disclaimer: I'm by no means a "pro user"; I drew all these up using MS Paint, so obviously the level of detail isn't nearly what some others may have I'm just comfortable with Paint and it's good enough to get the job done, so that's what I used. A couple notes: I drew these sets up assuming there were no limiting factors, i.e. " the one helmet rule" that would affect uniform design. Teams can have as many different uniform/helmet combos as they want. Every team will have at least 4 different uniform combinations: a Home set, a Road set, an Alternate set, and a Throwback set. Some will have more, some will have less. I also won't show every possible combination, just the ones that I think look best together. I didn't just change things for the sake of changing them; if a team already has a good design, then I most likely didn't make any major changes. With all that being said, I'll start out in the AFC East and work my way west. Comments/feedback welcome! AFC East Buffalo Bills v2.0 Miami Dolphins New England Patriots v1.5 New York Jets AFC North Baltimore Ravens Cincinnati Bengals v2.0 v2.5 Cleveland Browns Pittsburgh Steelers AFC South Houston Texans v2.0 Indianapolis Colts Jacksonville Jaguars v2.0 Tennessee Titans AFC West Denver Broncos Kansas City Chiefs Las Vegas Raiders Los Angeles Chargers v2.0 NFC East Dallas Cowboys v2.0 v3.0 New York Giants v2.0 Philadelphia Eagles v2.0 Washington Football Team v1.0, aka "Washington Red Wolves") v2.0, aka "Washington Warriors" v3.0, aka "Washington Football Team" NFC North Chicago Bears v2.0 Detroit Lions v2.0 Green Bay Packers v2.0 Minnesota Vikings NFC South Atlanta Falcons Carolina Panthers v2.0 v3.0 New Orleans Saints v1.5 v2.0 Tampa Bay Buccaneers v2.0 NFC West Arizona Cardinals v2.0 v3.0 Los Angeles Rams v1.5 v2.0 San Francisco 49ers Seattle Seahawks v2.0
  11. New Orlean's current uni set is a bit bland for a city with such a vibrant cultural and architectural history. The primary set features the city’s iconic wrought iron work down the side of the jerseys and shorts. "New Orleans" is shortened to "NOLA" on the navy and white uniforms. This set drops the awful, in my opinion contrasting collar. Association Icon Statement
  12. Here's a little concept that I put together. I tried my best to combine the color and styling of the older uniforms with the current fonts. Let me know what you think!
  13. As a fan of St Louis sports and the aesthetics of soccer crests, I’m very interested in the new St Louis MLS team. I have no idea what they will actually do, but the announcement that they would be releasing the logo/name/colors in a couple weeks got the creative wheels turning. St. Louis is a cool city with a ton of imagery and history to draw from. I chose to use the Arch for the overall shape of the crest, with the Apotheosis statue in Forest Park, which depicts King Louis IX, the city’s namesake, as the primary imagery within the crest. I also include the striping pattern from the city flag as a reference to the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. I struggled to settle on a color scheme. I think red/blue/gold is a no-brainer, but two MLS clubs already use those colors. Besides that, Burgundy/Gold was my next choice but I’m not 100% sold on that either. I rendered the logo in 6 color schemes and any feedback on the and/or crest would be appreciated. Thanks for your time. Whoops, the year got messed up in the brown/orange logo. I’ll update that ASAP.
  14. 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!
  15. Still learning illustrator so admittedly the logo is something of a work in progress. Also attached are Home, Away, and Alternate uniform sets respectively. Any thoughts are appreciated! http:// http:// http:// http://
  16. 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
  17. Going off of my MLB uniform concepts (which can be seen at this link https://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/121809-mlb-uniform-tweaks-andor-designs/#comments), I decided to do something a bit different, and create concepts for old MLB teams that have since moved away, using the Wikipedia template. I'm only doing MLB teams that have moved since the first World Series was played in 1903, and furthermore, I am only doing the team's original city (so no Milwaukee Braves or Kansas City Athletics). There are a total of eight teams that meet this criteria, and they are the Boston Braves, Brooklyn Dodgers, Montréal Expos, New York Giants, Philadelphia Athletics, Seattle Pilots, St. Louis Browns, and the Washington Senators (both incarnations of the franchise are merged into one concept). These concepts will be uploaded alphabetically, starting with the city name. Please, just give me your thoughts on them. Thank you!
  18. First draft of a logo for the fictitious Albuquerque Mountaineers, along with a typeface for them. The Mountaineers are a baseball team. I had the idea to put baseball stitching in the background on each side of the mountain, but decided against it, at least for now. I plan on taking this further, with more logos and uniforms eventually. Thoughts? http://
  19. In 2022, MLS expands to a 30-team league. And in my alternate reality, signs Nike as a league-wide sponsor! The league has so much design potential, and also has many clubs that need facelifts. In this series, I give the league an overhaul. Every team gets 3 inspired, non-templated jerseys. I have also designed 4 from-scratch logos and made edits to a few others. I also have a thorough plan for the logistics of a 30-team soccer league. Schedules. A playoff structure. But first, a league this size needs to group teams somehow. Because it allows for a (not balanced, but) formulaic schedule, I follow the lead of the other American sports and implement divisions. Divisions Here’s a map of the chosen divisions, where each division consists of 5 teams. I also took the liberty of selecting Phoenix as the destination for the 30th team instead of Charlotte. Sorry Charlotte. Implementing divisions with the scheduling structure I’m about to outline keeps local rivalries stoked and creates competition for division championships within the main competition. Scheduling a 30-team soccer league is tricky. A double round robin as is done in the big European soccer leagues would mean 58 games (way too much) and a single round robin would mean 29 games (not quite enough, MLS uses 34 and that’s probably specified in the union contract). Here’s how I create a formulaic 34-game schedule: Each team plays every non-divisional team once (25 games) Each team play every divisional team twice (8 games) Each team plays an additional game against a rival (1 game) … here’s the listing: (POR & SEA, VAN & PHX*, RSL & COL, LAFC & LAG, SAC & SJ, HOU & FCD, AUS & NAS*, STL & SKC, MIN & CHI, CLB & CIN, PHI & NE*, NYCFC & NYRB, TOR & MON, DC & ATL, ORL & MIA) *not really a rival and would be a second match against this team instead of a third It’s also necessary to balance travel. I do this by using north/south corridors. For example, LAFC will play 10 games against the Northeast and Southeast divisions. 5 of those games will be at home and 5 will be on the road. Same for games against the North and South divisions. Then every year, each team plays the same set of teams, with the home/road designations flipping from year to year. Playoffs MLS currently uses a single-game knockout playoff, which is odd considering MLS Cup is agreed upon as the most important trophy. I would change that in a way that helps better-performing teams reach MLS Cup. I also dial back the number of playoff teams to 12, with division winners qualifying automatically. The playoffs will have 3 stages: a group stage, a two-legged semifinal stage, and MLS Cup. Here’s how it works. 12 teams are placed into four 3-team groups based on overall points, with seeds grouped together as (1,8,9),(2,7,10),(3,6,11), and (4,5,12) … each team gets two games and the higher-seeded team always hosts … only one team in the group advances The lower seeded teams play first (8,9), (7,10), (6,11), (5,12) … then the lowest seeded team plays the top-seeded team in the second match of the group stage unless the lowest seed won the first match … then the top seeded team plays the remaining team in the final match (this setup makes the final group-stage match a group-decider in almost all scenarios) After the group stage, four teams remain … the lowest seed remaining is matched up with the highest seed remaining … two legs in the semifinal MLS Cup is hosted by the highest seed remaining I simulated a hypothetical playoff based on the 2019 league table to show how it might look: I will go division-by-division, starting with the North Division. Before I started working on this, I had never designed a logo myself and I had only designed maybe a single uniform. So with that in mind, I want to thank you for any comments and help as we go along.
  20. Hello everyone! Due to this quarantine, I have decided to start back up a Baseball Concept Uniform Tread! Each team will have at least one home alternate and road alternate uniform, and one spring training uniform. C&C is always appreciated, so please give your feedback! I will start with the American League then move to the National League. I hope you enjoy! BALTIMORE ORIOLES: The Orioles have some of the nicest uniforms in the league, in my opinion. The black and orange work really well together. I wanted to make the Orioles a primary orange team(which is what they should always be), so I added a orange hat to the road uniform, road alternate uniform 1, and the Spring Training uniform. I added another black uniform using the "O's" logo, maybe a jersey they wear on special occasions on the road. HOME: ROAD: HOME ALT: ROAD ALT 1: ROAD ALT 2: SPRING TRAINING:
  21. I have started a new NHL redesign that I have been posting on Reddit so far on r/hockeyjerseys but figured I would share here too. I have done 4 teams so far, which I will post here right away, and will be working through the other 28 at whatever pace I can get through them at. Open to feedback, but please be aware that I am not necessarily trying to make what I think the team should wear, or will wear, just being creative and killing time. Enjoy!!
  22. 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!
  23. So I whipped up a quick and dirty fix for the Rams LA logo. I don’t actually dislike the overall concept of the logo, but I think the execution of the idea is terrible. The problems: -Gradients-yuck, have fun reproducing that for embroidery and screen printing -Shadows-early 2000s web design wants their crutch back and it *the first two problems also create the problem of having waaay too many colors. -Doesn’t look good on multiple backgrounds/requires too many color and outline changes -The segmentation of the horn creates a crescent moon shape that I can’t unsee now that it’s been pointed out to me. The solution: first off, I ditched the gradients, getting the logo down to two/three colors depending on the application I also got made the horn one continuous piece. Also, because I ditched the gradients, the logo is all one color with a shadow on the horn to give it some depth. Honestly, I could take it leave the shading on the horn, but it might be a little flat without it. Anyway, this was like a 10 minute fix, but I think it makes the logo fit in much more with its contemporaries in the NFL and professional sports as a whole.
  24. 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)
  25. I rebranded the Colorado Rockies due to their current boring, branding. - Updated the color scheme to more vibrant purple. - New primary logo with mountain and Colorado "c." - Used the Denver Nuggets miner logo to create a secondary mascot logo for the Rockies. I slightly edited it and updated its aesthetic. - New wordmark using a script font. - All new jerseys.
