  1. My Rockies-themed shirt is up on Cotton Bureau! If you know any Rockies fans (or are one yourself), here's an awesome shirt to celebrate the return of Rocktober. I need some help, I've got 8 orders with 7 days to go. Click the shirt for the link:
  2. Let me start by making something clear: This is NOT my concept and I claim no credit for it. I tried to find a thread with this via search and could not. Now that that is out of the way, This is a concept by Jesse Alkire that I found via Dribbble. I thought that everyone here would really appreciate it. There are some aspects of the concept that on paper would seem hokie or minor league like (topographic elevation lines as pinstripes)... but they REALLY work well and I could imagine seeing them on the field. Here is the link to his page and some images from the concept. ***Well just figured out that Jesse IS a member here... sorry for posting your work. This can be taken down if need be.***
  3. I personally think that some of the extinct hockey teams looked the best. The Whalers, Nordiques, Rockies, Jets, etc. had some of my favorite hockey designs ever, and instead now we get to feast our eyes on the Hurricanes and Avalanche. Sad. So, This is basically my attempt to rewrite history, if the new franchises continued the look of their formers, Starting out with the Whaler-Hurricanes. The whalers had one of the best logos in all of sports history, and awesome uniforms and color scheme to boot, which helps to make the Hurricanes design more unique. C&C appreciated, and although I have some more on tap, let me know what you'd like to see next! Thanks!
  4. The Colorado Rockies changing their primary logo from the mountains to the interlocking CR is a lateral move for a brand than needs to be refreshed. The core concept is strong but it definitely feels dated. So here's my swing (sorry) at a Rockies update. Silver is eliminated from the logo and purple takes center stage. The mountains are cleaned up while still feeling rugged. The proportions of the new logo and the old are almost exactly the same--I designed the new logo on top of the old one--but the half roundel is thinned and the ball is given a clear launching direction, breaking through the atomosphere. I designed a purple monochrome version of this logo which I think looks better, but since I do plan to use black in the uniforms , I felt it'd be better to have black feature in the logo as well. My biggest complaint of the Rockies current set is that awful font. I hate how it looks like the CR is silver with a too thick black inner outline. The new CR originally had a black outline but thinking on some classic hats (Yankees, Dodgers, Reds) a solid color on a contrasting color looks great by itself. Again, in addition to refreshing the look, the goal is to make the new bold purple the main character. Proportionally the new CR is just a little taller than the old. Wordmarks use the same fonts as the primary and don't look like a too thick black inner outline was applied. Cool! Uniforms coming soon but here we are!
  5. 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.
  6. After getting a little bored and thinking of teams in more sports than hockey that needed an update, I decided on the Colorado Rockies. I'm not sure about you guys, but from the moment I really started to really started to look at the Rockies' logo, I realized it was just crap. The font was outdated and just looked bad, and it was an odd mashup of wordmark and logo that just doesn't work. However, I tried to redo that while maintaining some of the logo's best aspects, and adding some new mountains and double purple. My goal for the redesigned Rockies was to be mostly black-free to create a more colorful and unique identity. Here is my initial product. With the primary logo, it is what I wanted it to be; a more simple, more purple, updated version of their current logo. I completely redid the mountains, which was my goal, as well as refined the shape and introduced a new font. However, when I look at the area under the mountains and around the "Colorado", something looks off. I can't put my finger on it, and I'd love if one of you guys could help me out. Here's a secondary logo I made pretty quickly. Not a ton to say, just a recolored Colorado flag 'C'. It'd make a good cap logo. In addition, I had some spare time and decided to photoshop my logo where the huge Rockies logo sign is at Coors Field. I was going to make jerseys, but I need to get more ideas and actually figure out how to make a good baseball jersey. What are your thoughts?
  7. 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!
  8. Here's a stab at a Rockies re-brand I've been working on. CC appreciated:
  9. So I'm kind of taking my 90's remix jerseys and going to the next level. I'm taking defunct NHL teams and continuing there jersey history like they never left. I'm going to do the Atlanta Flames, Colorado Rockies, Minnesota North Stars, Atlanta Thrashers, Kansas City Scouts, Hartford Whalers, Quebec Nordiques, Winnipeg Jets and Cleveland Barons. Here's the first team I've done The Rockies, from its 76-77 debut threw the 90's Non traditional in to the 2000's edge and the transformation from yellow gold to "golden Colorado" Vegas style gold.
  10. For the first time in probably three years (I just checked...it's been FOUR), I managed to find the time to do a concept. Anyway, I had an idea for the Rockies and decided to see what it'd look like worked out. The Rockies are a team that definitely could use an update, and the MLB could use a primarily purple team. That said, I eliminated black entirely. I did initially have a darker purple to replace the black but ultimately decided to stick with one shade of purple and add a lavender color to offset it with silver. For the primary, I didn't stray too far from the basic premise of the current logo. It's relatively simple, but I feel like a "Rockier" font works better than what they currently have. I used the Bradley University font as a base (please don't sue me, Nike) and angled some parts of the letters and added the spurs to spruce them up a bit. I'm not 100% sold on the baseball as the moon/sun effect, but I think I might toy with the laces to make that work a little better. I figured I'd post it as-is for some feedback while I'm working that a little more. I toyed with the Colorado flag as a basis for the cap logo (basically a Cubs-esque "C" with a baseball in the middle), and it just wasn't doing anything for me. Instead, I took the "C" from the font used in the primary, made it a little wider, and replaced the baseball with a mountain. Again, pretty simple, but I think simplicity works well on a baseball cap. I'm still working through the uniforms, but I figured I'd throw the wordmarks up here while I'm at it. Hit me up with whatever C&C you've got. Hopefully this is just the start of me doing some more concepts.
  11. I tried to give it a western feel with the font and the logo shaped like a belt buckle
  12. This is a concept logo for the Colorado Rockies. I made it more modern but similar to the old logo. Hope you guys like it! C&C Welcome!
  13. Hey guys, I actually like the Rockies logo, except it looks a little dated (in my opinion.) I decided to cut the gray out of the logo, as it seemed unnecessary to me. Let me know what you think!
  14. I designed the wordmark for the home jersey... using the same font for the road came off a little awkward, I think. Let me know if you feel the same... CC please
  15. A while back, I'd posted a few Rockies alts & one-offs, one of which was a purple-heavy white alt. Decided to revisit it, as a full set this time, and as Buc had put it in that past thread, the Rockies should own purple. Not kinda wear it, like they do now, but OWN it. To that end...here goes. home/away The scripts are based on what the Denver Bears wore in the 50s, with a rather distinct underscore. Though I don't really feel one way or the other towards the CR, I know most here aren't exactly fans of it. Thus, the C from the road script becomes the cap logo. And before I forget, far as colors, I dropped black and silver, replacing the latter with lavender. alts On your lefthand side is an 80s Nuggets tribute...complete with purple rainbow and Nuggets-style script. The other alt is a lavender vest.
  16. I have been working on a project during my free time on what some NHL teams/markets might have looked like if it weren't for some relocations/foldings that took place between the 70's and 90's. So here is Part I: The Colorado Rockies. The Colorado Rockies were an NHL between 1976 and 1981. They were originally the Kansas City Scouts before moving to Denver in 1976, and then after many seasons of poor attendance, and bad play the team finally packed up and moved to New Jersey. The would become the Devils, and you all know what happened after that. In this project though, the Rockies never make the move to New Jersey, and they are still in Denver to this day. But what would the Rockies look like now? Would they have kept the uniforms unchanged? Who they change colors? Would they get new logos? 1976-1977 When the Rockies moved to Denver from Kansas City, the kept their colors of blue, red and yellow but changed their name and adopted a new logo that was based of the Colorado state flag. Their original uniforms were classic in style and very fitting to the era in which they were created. The white jersey was adorned with yellow/red/yellow sleeve stripes and blue pants. While the blue jersey was adorned with the same yellow/red/yellow stripes and red pants. 1977-1985 After their first season in Colorado, the Rockies decided to make a few changes to their look. The first and most obvious one, being the addition of player's names to the blue jersey. Now both home and away sets had the player's name on the back. The other not so obvious changes were the addition of a yellow/blue/yellow stripe to the bottom of the red pants legs, so that the striping would better match that of the blue pants. And they began to wear white helmets with the white jersey. This look would last them until the 1984-1985 season. 1985-1990 After the 1984-1985 season, the Rockies would make one small tweak to their look, in order to simplify things and also to save an extra penny. They would drop the red pants that were worn with the blue jersey, and start using their blue pants exclusively. 1990-1996 After the 1989-1990 season, the Rockies would make their first drastic uniform change. They would drop their jersey design that they have had since their first season in favor of a more streamlined and modern striping style. The new jerseys feature a white/yellow/red/blue stripe pattern that would hold consistent on both jerseys. The stripes would be adorned on the sleeves, hems and socks of the uniform. They also dropped the striping on the pants and now have solid blue pants with both jerseys. 1996-2007 In 1996, the Rockies would follow the direction of the Sabres, Islanders, and Capitals in completely rebranding themselves with a new logo. This logo was supposed to be a modernization of their old logo. Still based on the Colorado flag, the new logo features a red C outlined in navy blue, with a mountain inside of a yellow circle in the middle of the C. The new logo would also bring about a change in colors. All three colors (red, blue, and yellow) are darkened pretty drastically. Along with the new logo/colors, the team would adopt a new uniform with striping made to reflect mountain peaks. The blue jersey had sleeves adorned with a single red peak stripe outlined by two small yellow and white stripes. The hem would feature this same style but with multiple peaks instead of just one. The white jersey would follow the same style but with blue peak stripes outlined by two small red and yellow stripes. These jerseys would be worn for a total of 11 seasons. 2007-2009 With the introduction of the new Rebook Edge jersey system in the NHL, some looks were unable to be reproduced on the new jersey cuts. One of these designs being the Rockies mountain peak design. Because of this the Rockies are forced to adopt a new uniform. The logos and colors would remain the same. The new uniforms feature stripes that go all along the tops of the sleeves and side panel stripes. The color pattern would follow the same style as the previous set; red/yellow/white on the blue jersey, and blue/yellow/red on the white jersey. 2009-2011 In 2009, the Rockies would adopt the first third uniform in the history of the franchise. Because of all the retro craze going on during this time, the Rockies would adopt a faxback design, complete with lace-up collars, as their third jersey. This jersey was navy blue with a red/white/yellow/white/red sleeve, sock, and hem striping design. 2011-2012 With the large amount of success the third jersey had with fans, in 2011 the Rockies would decide to adopt that jersey as their full time look. They created a new matching white jersey, and retired their previous home/away jerseys. 2012-present In 2012, the Colorado Rockies would pay homage to the original 1976 team with a throwback third jersey. This jersey would feature the same design as the original blue sweater that the team wore in 1976.
