  1. Hi everyone, For my latest project, I wanted to do address the overabundance of blue & red teams across Major League Baseball. For inspiration, I figured I'd look at the colors of other local teams to create some regional visual unity, similar to the way that all Pittsburgh teams use black and gold. Note that some teams will be using throwback colors of local teams, such as the first team below. We start today with the Texas Rangers in the San Antonio Spurs' fiesta colors. Thanks to @Victormrey for the suggestion! RANGERS HOME RANGERS ROAD RANGERS HOME ALT 1 RANGERS HOME ALT 2 RANGERS HOME ALT 3 RANGERS ROAD ALT C&C appreciated! Another team will be up soon.
  2. Ok - so in my quest to track down a decent graphic of the Tampa Bay Bucs' Bucco Bruce, I may have (unwittingly) stumbled into a logo controversy. I see multiple versions of the helmet logo on the web (kinda how the Patriots have multiple versions of Patriot Pat). Or maybe I'm wrong here. I was only 2 where the Bucs debutted in 1976, so I wasn't sharp enough to catch the differences. Anybody care to weigh in on what's what? When was each one used?? Here's #1 (notice how the sword handle has grip areas and the earring is white)[1%2F1%2F2%2F5%2F5%2F11255697]&call=url[file%3Aproduct.chain] And here's #2 (notice how the sword handle is smooth and the earring is orange) Help please....
  3. Another board at which I am a member has a feature where posts from 7 years ago are easily accessed, especially on the basis of visual tags. Today brings us to the 7 year anniversary of the alarm clock Bucs unveiling. I found the comments interesting in hindsight, especially from the Browns fan who was afraid of what might be coming for his team. You SHOULD be able to see this without signing up. Yeah - you'll recognize my s/n
  4. Here we can discuss which is the best and worst changes in NFL uniforms this year. Here are my votes: Big Upgrade: Browns Buccaneers, Chargers Not necessarily an upgrade but I personally like them: Colts OK: Patriots Downgrade: Rams Big Downgrade: Falcons
  5. I saw there was a thread about Tampa Bay Bucs possibly getting new unis for the 2020 NFL season. Here are some markups I did. I kept the Retro unis pretty straightforward, but combined the 2 looks with the Retro & the early 2000's. Please give me any feedback you may have.
  6. Hey guys, got some NFL concepts I have been working on. I used my simplified variation of the GUD template. Let me know what you think and what I should improve on.
  7. Hey everyone, I'm back at it again. I did a concept a few years ago that I really enjoyed and I've been tinkering with it again. I hope this time the colors come through the way I've intended. Last time I couldn't get the colors the way I wanted due to my monitor being shoddy. A little back story here, I'm not trying to totally re-brand the team but take what they currently wear and modify what I and others see as problems with their current look. The logo's are pretty much the same as before with some minor tweaks. They are a mash up of their current and former logos, taking the elements from both that I really liked. I really do like Tampa's current look for the most part, I think the balance between colors really works all though I do prefer a little more orange. One huge fix is the number font. For this concept I went with a slightly modified version of the Spokane Empire's number font. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy and C+C is always welcome.

  8. Happy 2018! Here's to being more active on the boards this year and we're gonna start it off with an attempt to fix my favorite NFL team: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The goal was to take the best parts of all three eras of Buccaneers uniforms and synthesize them to a modern look that could stand the test of time. Helmet Moving the Bucs back to a white shell opens up the throwbacks as an alt uniform which ,while not particularly my favorite thing, are an undeniable fan favorite. One of my favorite things about the new uniforms is the bigger flag on the helmets but I would like to see the Bucs to it even more and really turn the helmet into the flag flying forward. I tried at first to have a red shell with the Skull and Sabers only but I didn't like it near as much as the shape the flag makes across the side blown up. I played with black, red, orange, white and pewter facemasks but I like the chrome masks the best. Eras Taken: 70s Shell, 10s mask and huge logo Standard Uniforms (L-R, Top-Bottom: Standard Home, Alt Home, Color Rush, Standard Road, Alt Road) First obvious fix is no more dang alarm color numbers, but from the current era I keep the reflective chrome outlines on the numbers and the shoulders. The front comes to a point which is a holdover from when I planned to carry over the random bits of orange on the current uniforms. The ends of the Shoulders are red with striping meant to evoke the motion of a sword. It starts as traditional striping across the back inspired by the 70s set and moves to a point on the front. This replaces the random bits of orange on the current fronts. A common pant fix for Bucs is to make a saber like stripe along the side. I started out with a style of sword pulled straight from the logo but I didn't like how pewter touching chrome looked even with the tips in red. This morphed to taking the shoulder end striping and putting it on the pants. Eras Taken: 70s sleeve striping and helmet shell, 00s numbers color order, 10s chrome facemask, chrome reflective numbers, shoulders Throwbacks It's the return of the Creamsicles. As I designed this I think what bugged me about the Creamsicles (besides the culture of losing associated with them) is that Bay Orange is really overpowering on that set but I believe the Blood Red on the tips and white shoulders tops cuts that a bit. The reflective bits on the number come off to really send home the throwback look but the striping remains the same to bring the look into the current era.
  9. Not an unpopular opinion... I hate the current uniforms worn by Tampa Bay. Another not unpopular opinion... I feel the uniforms the Bucs wore from 97 to 13 were nearly perfect, and they were stupid to move away from them, especially for the nightmare they ended up with. However, as easy as it is to say "just switch back", I don't really think that's all that feasible. There are a number of reasons why it isn't really done, primarily IMO because it would just feel like an admission that the change was a huge mistake. It was, obviously, but I don't think a franchise would be willing to swallow their pride enough to simple own up to it. Most of the examples that come to mind of a team doing an about face to a "classic" look are like the Giants, the Jets... uniforms that are truly classic in the 40 to 50 year sense. To quickly switch away from a modern uniform to a fairly recent, almost as modern uniform seems unlikely. From a marketing standpoint, I'd think it would be easier for them to sell a return of the creamsicles, as a "classic return"... which I don't believe they'd be willing to do either. However... While thinking about it, another model came to mind... that being the 2009 San Francisco 49ers. In '96, they went with their modern update, which was well received at first, but aged very poorly. The darkened red, multiple logo placements, and unnecessary black accents were very "90's" and, especially since it replaced a beloved classic, it wasn't surprising to see the 9ers move back. But they didn't move back completely... The new uniform, as much as it's thought of as a return of the old, is actually a modern update of the old that owes a bit to the 90'd look as well. It's simplified, and the 90's logo, which is in the forefront of team marketing, is held over. In that vein, here's something similar for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Take the uniform everyone loves so much... ... add a few elements from the current uniform (logos, brighter red) Put it on a more modern template (which eliminates the black collar and cuffs), go with a seemingly more classic but still unique font... And I got this; Full disclosure, I actually prefer the older logos, both on the helmet and on the sleeves, but again, my thought was a way to return to a better look without fully abandoning the new one. Thoughts?
  10. Well with 4 teams in the hunt for the No. 1 pick in 2015, the Bucs, Raiders, Jaguars, and Jets, and possibly the Falcons it's time to start a draft thread. Granted I know Free Agency hasn't occurred so i'm taking a shot in the dark at what teams need now. IMO the order will go like this: Raiders Jets Jaguars BuccaneersThe Raiders need everything, the Jets need a QB, the Jags have a solid D-Line, but the O-Line could use some help, and the Bucs need a QB and a new offensive line. If the Buccaneers drafted a QB in the 1st round, I pray they draft Marcus Mariota and not Winston. Too much problems with Winston.
  11. So, my NHL series is winding down and I'll be starting a college football thread along with this one, but this ones about the NFL and fixing the issues that some teams have with their looks. But first I must establish a few rules about this, seeing as this does deal with the No Fun League 1. Teams can have more than one helmet but no more than 3 (throwbacks not included in the rule) 2. The sock w/white rule is now optional, meaning some teams can wear it, but all teams aren't forced to 3. Teams can have 5 jerseys max (throwbacks not included) There probably should be a rule about Jacksonville's helmets... Anyway now that that is out of the way, Lets start this off So the Cardinals scream Reebok piping disaster. I think they should be a front runner for a Nike redesign next season. Anyways, even with the Nike updates, I think the Cards should be relatively uniform conservative team, which is why you don't see any chrome or half helmet gradients. I don't like how the red jerseys never had any striping while the white jerseys did, so the red jerseys have a striping pattern on them. The biggest thing, I think about the jerseys is the sublimated Arizona flag pattern on the shoulders. I used the pants style from the Oregon spring jerseys to also have the sublimated flag. The alternate jersey or Pro Combat of the set doesn't stray too much from the home and away, but is geared more as a "Pride" jersey, as the flag is on the chest, and kinda has a copper appearance to it, which fits Arizona. The pants are slightly different. Red and black socks and black and red shoes for all the sets and I gave them a red helmet to go along with the white. C and C this up
  12. Hey, y'all. I haven't posted any concepts here in a while for many reasons, of which I will name a few (and I'm not calling anyone out, I just have a few things to get off my chest): Most of my hard work gets pushed down to the depths of the second or third page by sloppy, rushed, and half-baked concepts that for one reason or another stay on the top page and get millions of comments. There are many immature people here that simply post things like "your concept sucks," "this is terrible," or (and this is my personal favorite) "your idea is wrong because of x, y, and z. This would never be seen in real life!" And these next ones, to show that I'm not solely passing the blame on others, have to do with my flaws. I have trouble with commitment; I say I'm starting a series with the intent on finishing it in its entirety, yet I never do. Even with all of the sub-par work out there that I mentioned, there is a ton of great work on these boards and I feel as though my concepts get overshadowed because my skills are not as great as others.And last but not least, it's something that everyone on here experiences: Life. Life has just been crazy lately and I haven't had the time to sit down and work on some concepts like I would like to. So, there you have it. I don't plan on making this a series per se because I know that I'm not going to get all of the teams finished. But let's just say, if I do get some stuff done I'll dump it here. TL;DR - I haven't posted concepts in awhile due to silly things but I'm posting a few now because of reasons. And if I haven't lost you yet, I'll explain a little bit about each concept. Over the past couple of years, Nike has graced all of us with redesigns of each of the three teams that call Florida their home (...why on earth does Florida need three NFL teams?). All three designs have been not well-received to put it lightly. However, each overhaul shares some qualities that, IMO, are worth saving or fixing. I have attempted to fix all three Floridian teams to my liking. While there may not be any major changes, I did work hard on these. In fact, I've been working on Jacksonville and Tampa Bay off and on for a while, and I started on Miami about five hours ago and just finished not too long ago. To get things started we have the Jacksonville Jaguars. Now, the Jaguars probably have the worst look of these three teams currently and that's mainly because of their helmet. The black to gold concept isn't too bad of one in theory and especially when the idea behind the helmet was to, and I'm paraphrasing here, "show the Jaguar lurking from the shadows into the light." Pretty cool, huh? Not so much. The current Jags helmet goes from gold to black suggesting that the jaguar is crawling back into the darkness, probably to escape the perpetual mediocrity that rushes onto the field year after year. All kidding aside, though, I actually think the helmet could work if done properly, which is what I tried to do. The helmet now goes from black to gold so that the Jaguar is emerging from the darkness. As for the jerseys, teal is making its triumphant comeback as the primary color. Black has had its time as being the Jaguars primary color. Besides, it's still featured prominently throughout the color scheme and I've even included a special "black out" alternate jersey. I fixed the problems of the black numbers on the teal jersey as dark numbers on a dark jersey hardly ever work out. The TV numbers are on the sleeves instead of the shoulders to make room for the subliminal jaguar-spotted striping pattern on the shoulders. This pattern can also be seen on the pants. So, here are the Jaguars: *click for zoom* Up next we have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tampa Bay, in my opinion, actually have some pretty awesome uniforms, it's just that the number font is a mess. But before we get into that, let's talk a little bit about the logo and colors. I don't know if you can tell or not, but I significantly darkened the red and reduced the color scheme to red/pewter/silver. The logo has the "tatters" n the flag just as the previous logo did and the entire concept is devoid of orange (except for the football in the logo). The uniforms still have the shoulder yoke that the Bucs' current jerseys do except for the fact that it extends all of the way to the collar -- which is all pewter instead of half pewter, half red. The yoke has some stripes on it to emulate slashes of a sword as does the long stripe on the pants (in all honesty I tried making the pant stripe mimic a sword/sheath). The alarm-clock number font is completely replaced by a modern, yet simple font that makes due without horrible gimmicks. Oh, and the shoulder logos now match. The "Bucs" wordmark is now strictly on the chest, right above the number. The Buccaneers, gentlemen: *click for zoom* Finally we have the team that has probably received the least amount of criticism from the Nike overhaul: the Miami Dolphins. Let me begin by saying that I love Miami's new logo. At first I was like "meh, it's alright." But it's grown on me and I believe it to be multiple times better than their previous logo. That being said, I don't much care for the blue in the color scheme. The Dolphins should always be just aqua and orange. The blue in the logo will stay on the helmet, but you won't find it anywhere on the jerseys. The aqua facemask is also making a well-needed comeback. The jerseys are simple, yet a little different from what the 'phins have ever worn. The helmet, pant, and shoulder stripes are all the exact same on the home uniform and the only one that differs on the away uniform is the helmet stripe. The shoulders feature Northwestern stripes on a background that is the same color of the pants, or opposite that of the jersey. Currently, the Dolphins have this really hokey number font that I'm not too fond of, so I used a different font that is slimmer and looks better, IMO. There's not much else to say about this one, as it's pretty straightforward. Here are the Dolphins to wrap it up: *click for zoom* So, if you read all of that guys; I thank you very much. Please share any thoughts, comments, or constructive criticism with me as I'm always open to suggestions on how to progress my ideas! Thanks for viewing everyone, have a nice day!

  14. i usually dont get into the "fixing the latest uniform release" thing but i couldnt resist taking a stab at the Bucs. they had one of my favorite logos and uniforms in NFL history and i was very disappointed with the Nike-trash they got. i felt like they went overboard (pirate pun!) with the primary logo, adding in some unnecessary details and worst of all killed the waving, curling action of the flag. i probably drew around 20 different swords before landing on this design and i think i finally got it where it needs to be. For the word mark i just wanted a better font that still had a pirate personality. i went with a white-on-black mark to reflect the skull and swords in the flag. the red is about the same, its 200 C (think Ohio State) and the pewter is 10398 C, which is a metallic swatch that is brighter and with more silver than their current. it's hard to replicate exactly in RGB color space, but i think i've done a decent job here. favorite final sword designs it just happened that the word mark filled the end zones really well and i liked the big bold look of this. usually i'll experiment with 4 or 5 field designs but this was the first i came up with and decided thats cool enough. this template dosent show exactly what i imagine the helmet looking like. i really want a satin finish on the helmet with a silver (NOT chrome) face mask. but i love the idea of a big red flag on the side screaming into battle. its a logo that needs to be oversized. this shows the helmet more to my liking. my first idea for the jersey was to do stripes that looked like the rips in the flag of the logo, not too different from the Texans design, but then got the idea to do a ship's sail (a much simpler version of the pirate ship) on the sleeves. i wanted nothing to do with that tangerine orange and left it out of the identity completely except in the football of the logo. the numbers on the home jersey are silver (NOT chrome). the road jersey would feature a silver outlined number. the number font i felt didnt have to be anything special, because of how i had treated it with the silver. i just wanted a bold badass football font. the pants stripe just comes from the idea of a sword blade, the red carefully placed to resemble blood on the edge. not sure if the NFL would go for that or not, but i think its pretty cool. there is quite a bit going on in the uniform from helmet to pants so when it came to the socks i just wanted to try something very simple, yet do something new that the NFL has never seen before.
  15. It seems like in the last week, everyone has taken a shot a "fixing" the new Tampa Bay uniform. So, I figured, what the hell, I'll take my shot. First, let me be clear... given some sort of "magic wand" my first choice would be to wish it away into the cornfield and make it never was. Their old uniform was awfully close to perfect... not completely but it didn't need much. I don't like the new logo, don't like the new helmet, don't like the new pewter, I despise the uniforms, and I believe they've given themselves the worst font I can remember. That said, if I'm going to do this, I want to work, at least somewhat, with what's there. So I decided to give myself the problem of keeping the new helmet, sleeve logos, and colors, and just try to fix the actual uniform. Here's my attempt...
  16. With the announcement of the new logo/helmet/uniforms for the Bucs, I was put in the mood for making a concept for them. The helmets feature an oversized logo that has been simplified to an extent (the sword on the flag). Also, the shoulder design mimics a sword as well. Other than that, not a huge change design-wise. First, the Red/Pewter/Black version (click for larger image): Second, a Orange/Pewter/Black version. There was a discussion in Sports Logos about this scheme, and most agreed that orange and pewter don't work together. I agree, but it can work if done right. I never let the pewter and orange actually meet, and I think it turned out pretty well. C&C appreciated! I realize they all say Home Uniform, I can fix that in an update sometime.
  17. New logos, old color scheme... C&C welcome...
