  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. I've done many "Vintage Style College Mascots" and as the NFL season gets started I was thinking of what their logos/mascots might look like if they had been created in the style of Arthur Evans. I don't plan on directly using any mascot/logo looks (college or NFL) that are already out there (example: using Pistol Pete for the Dallas Cowboys). However, I may take inspiration from bits or pieces of them. Over the next few weeks/months I'll be adding my newest iterations, please let me know what you think with your comments and/or likes. First up: Minnesota Vikings
  3. I finally decided to post my Minnesota Vikings concept that I made in January. The concept is based on the idea that there is a home/away set, color rush, and a throwback alternate. I based the main set on the vikings current uniforms while also implementing the concept drawings by Hubenthal. I used the current Vikings font but without the serifs, added a white facemask, and tweaked the horn logo slightly. For the color rush uniform I decided to base it on the all white uniforms the vikings wore from 1969-1995 with the UCLA stripes. I based the alternate/throwback on the 1965 uniform set, where the numbers are outlined and the stocks dont have stripes.
  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. Here's a thread for some of my NFL concepts. First off, the LA Rams. I gave them a yellow home jersey because they might be the only team that could pull it off. The sleeve striping is a very Southwestern design based on the flag of Los Angeles, to really lean into their new SoCal identity. Included are alternate blue pants for both home and away, and throwbacks based on both the Fearsome Foursome and Eric Dickerson eras.
  6. Imgur Album Links: Saints Steelers Cowboys Chargers Rams Falcons Packers Jaguars Patriots Eagles With the NFL Playoffs starting today, I decided to mock up some ideas I had for a three NFL Teams: the Saints, Steelers, and Cowboys. I loved the color rush uniforms for both the Saints and Steelers; ideas from both are implemented in these concepts. For the Saints, the concept basically is their color rush; there is no reason they shouldn't adopt that look full time. I simplified their helmet logo a bit and brought back the Louisiana state outline logo as a chest patch. In addition to the white jerseys taken from the color rush set, the concept includes a black jersey with gold-white-gold-white-gold stripes as well as a gold jersey with b-w-b-w-b stripes. An alternate white helmet idea is also shown; it would only be used if the NFL were to lift the one helmet rule, obviously.
  7. Hello all, back during my Michigan Tech redesign, I said that I would be back to tackle more college hockey teams. With school, and what ended up being a month of finals, that sort of got pushed back awhile. But, I'm back, and ready to tackle what may be the biggest curiosity in all of college (or possibly any level) hockey, the Alabama-Huntsville Chargers. For those of you who are college hockey amateurs, Alabama-Huntsville actually exists. No, they are not very good, though they have made the NCAA tournament twice. Generally, the Chargers are considered a sort of joke or novelty, and really haven't made that big an impact on the landscape. They also have a pretty crappy logo. With my version of the logo, I initially wanted a soldier on horseback. Initially, UAH's mascot was the Uhlan, a polish cavalry unit from the 18th and 19th centuries. While the name has long since been changed to the Chargers, I thought it could be a nice little tip of the cap to the original name while maintaining the current identity. Long story short, I couldn't make it work, so it's only a horse (For those keeping score, horse rider logos 2: lafarge 0). Not much to say, really. It's a stylized front half of a horse. With the uniforms, I wanted to emulate the style of UAH's previous looks without blatantly copying the Rangers and Blackhawks, or wearing extremely amateurish uniforms. One main feature is the heavy use of black, despite having no black in the logo. This is meant to mimic the design quirk that the real uniforms feature. When determining the striping pattern, I decided to go traditional, but unusual, and applied a three stripe system. However, instead of placing black as the center stripe, like normal, I made it the bottom stripe. It honestly turned out much better than expected, and gives UAH a distinct look. The chest features UAH with the uniform number below. This is an amalgamation of two styled used by the team. The first featured Alabama Hunstville above and below the number. The second was a diagonal UAH. Combine the two, and boom. NOTE: The primary logo features a silver keyline while the uniform features a white keyline. In theory, the silver would be used in all applications, except for athletics uniforms that feature black (ideally, the designs would move away from black and towards silver, but with several blue/silver or blue/white teams in college hockey, I figured I'd keep the traditional blue/black scheme). Anyway, that's all for this time. It's certainly not as extensive as my Michigan Tech redesign, and I do hope to get back to more extensive treatments in the future. I'm not sure who I'm gonna tackle next, so if you have any suggestions, throw them my way (Existing teams only please) and I'll give em a consideration. Thanks for viewing and thanks for the C+C!
  8. So this is my redesign for the Chargers. It's based on a guiding principle that the curved bolts and powder blue are so much a part of San Diego Charger history that they ought to stay in San Diego. Blame it on the local movers who refused to help them load their stuff. So instead, I've employed straight bolts which run on a diagonal and wrap around the back. Large numbers appear on the back on the helmet reminiscent of the helmet numbers on the original LA Chargers. Only one shade of blue, the azure from last years Color Rash. To add a touch of LA flair, the Chargers use cursive numerals like UCLA. The pants are white at home and blue on the road for non-divisional games and gold for all in-division games. So five games in white pants, five in blue, six in gold.
  9. Full project here: The beach. The palm trees. Hollywood. America's game in the City of Angels. Los Angeles deserves an NFL team that's undoubtedly, indigenously LA. With San Diego returning to it's roots after 55 years in San Diego, they are in need of a new brand. This brand should still pay some homage to the Charger days, but with a fresh take on the identity that also embraces LA, in equilibrium. I sought to feature the LA surf, sun and celebrity culture. I think this brand better speaks to the fan base in LA, versus just slapping "Los Angeles" in front of Chargers.
  10. Hey guys, I've been seeing all of the new concepts for the LA Chargers logo on here and all around the internet and figured I'd give it a go. I tried to make the logo type match the word mark to keep the style consistent. Comments and feedback appreciated.
  11. So I saw someone point out today that the LA Chargers logo that made its rounds today is very sloppy and the alignment on it is atrocious. So in an attempt to fix that I got carried away and ended up just making something a lot better out of it. Enjoy
  12. I figured I'd toss my two cents into what will inevitably be a deluge of LA Chargers concepts. Moved the Bolts up to make the A Crossbar and made the bolt angles match the letters. And some powder blue variations because you can't abandon that look.
  13. Let me know what you think of this concept uniforms for the chargers, either stay in SD or move...
  14. I decided to try 4 NFL Color Rush Uniforms. Let me know what you think. This was done rather quickly, so expect some errors.

    LA Chargers Logo

    Here's my take on an LA version of the Chargers, seeing as this scenario looks likely within the next few years. I'm not really a logo designer, so feedback would be appreciated!
  16. So I've been wanting to do a Chargers concept for a while now, and now that they're moving to LA (hopefully, would hate to see the Raiders leave the Bay) I've finally done it. Currently I only have the home jersey but other sets will be coming. I don't like long intros so here's the concept: There's not too many major changes, but I'll go over them just so you know what to look for. First of all Powder Blue is back, it's a unique color and it looks way better than navy. Next you may notice the anniversary patch, it is shown separately but is on the right chest of the jersey and a partial version that only features the "LA" is a decal on the helmet. I think the "LA" would make a good secondary. Another major change is moving the bolt lower on the sleeves, it seemed more efficient to me and looks cleaner. I also changed the pants stripe to better fit nike's style and modernize a classic look. Then there's the helmet. Most of you will probably hate the gradient, but I felt it was a subtle way of adding depth to the helmet and giving a cloudy look to it. Plus Nike would have so much fun explaining it as some "thundercloud with an electric flair" or something cheesy like that. Anyways thank you for viewing this concept, I know I haven't posted anything in a while. Any feedback is appreciated.
  17. Here's the uniforms Here's the logo set For the uniforms, I kept the basic template fairly the same with the lightning bolt based design, however the obvious updates are the new color of foam green which replaces navy along with a new powder blue and yellow that are similar but not the same to what they use now, a new font which is one of Conrad's (thank you) called Tempe, a white facemask, and a return to the blue jersey/yellow pants scheme. There are yellow numbers as well. With the logos, the bolt stays but is recolored to fit the new scheme. I made a secondary based off of the old horse logo but changed some things. C&C would be awesome! Thanks!
  18. So, here's another go at the San Diego Chargers. I dislike the current uniform more every time I see it. The mash up of sky blue and navy blue is awkward, the number font is just plain bad, and the shoulder treatment of the lightning bolts is clunky and forced. Like a lot of us, I'd like to see the traditional shoulder stripes, the ones the Chargers wore for the first 40 years, but the new templates make those also unworkable IMO. (I know some people are OK with the Colts half-stripes, but I'm not one of them.) So my idea was to try to design a completely new solution for the shoulder bolts, and since the Seahawks have pioneered the concept of using the upper chest has an area for graphic, I put them there. I actually tried to have the bolts ride on the existing seams on Nike's upper chest template. Also, I cobbled this font together from a mash up of two existing fonts (thanks, Conrad!) and added a small "electric" detail. Let me know what you think.
  19. This is an update of an old chargers logo from the 60's. Coments are welcomed.
  20. So I have yet to see a chargers jersey concept that wasn't hideous so I decided to make my own. I didn't like the idea of embracing the powder blue fully, so I meshed it with the Navy. The problem is it seems to have a very "Titans" feel. For the alternate used their 90s helmet with a new alternate jersey. Really like the stripe on the pants on that one. Anyways they're done with an old template in paint but you should get the idea. What do you guys think? Update: Updated Jerseys:
  21. Now with more experience under my belt I've been taking second looks at my old concepts. Today I started re-thinking my Cape Buffalo Logo. Let me know what you think, here are the sketches of the new direction:
  22. Here are six NFL concepts I made. Chargers (revised logo, new uniforms) Lions (new uniforms, revised color scheme) Bengals (revised wordmark, new uniforms) Eagles (new logos and uniforms) Giants (revised uniforms) Steelers (revised logos and uniforms)
  23. http://s1102.photobu...09983.jpeg.html Blue: AFC East Green: AFC North Orange: AFC South Red: AFC West As you can see (or not cause this is pretty :censored:ty haha), I relocated the Bills to Toronto, the Dolphins to South Beach, The Chargers to Portland, Oregon, and the Jaguars to Los Angeles. I think those cities are more deserving than the ones that have their teams currently and make the divisions make more sense. Update: Here is what I have so far for the Los Angeles Grizzlies!

  24. So, it seems to be some sort of rite a passage on the CCSLC Concepts board to do a San Diego Charger concept. I’ve done plenty through the years, so I thought I’d post one. Like a lot of you, I’ve tried before to reconcile the navy blue and the powder blue eras, and never been especially happy with the results. Mine looked more or less like the current Charger uniform… an uncomfortable shoehorn of styles in an attempt to please everybody. Finally, I just said screw it… dump the navy altogether… it really isn’t worth it. What I’ve ended up with here is a bit of a new and old blend. Keep the current sleeve treatment and more active pants’ bolts, but otherwise simplify as much as possible. The navy is gone altogether. The main thing that freed me up was to forget about the whole idea of having the bolts be identical. Again, it just wasn’t worth it, having to bend over backward to outline and double outline the bolts just to keep some vague sense of continuity. In the 60’s and70’s uniforms, the bolt would be gold on white or blue, and white on gold, and it still seemed to hang together really well, in my opinion. Anyway, have a look. C and C appreciated.
