  1. My goal with these rebrands is to make sure the jerseys aren't boring. I feel like so much more can be done to each design. I want each team to feel unique and have a defined identity. I've created five jerseys for each team and I'll post a team's set when it is fully complete. Each team will have: 1. Association-HOME.standard white jersey. Nike logo. 2. Showtime-AWAY ALTERNATE. Each team will be issued a black jersey for late night prime time games (ex. 76ers go play the Lakers at a 10:30 EST game). Nike logo. 3. Icon-AWAY.team's primary, iconic color. Jumpman logo. Road jersey. 4. Statement-HOME ALTERNATE. team's secondary color. Jumpman logo. Home alternate jersey. 5. Community-ALTERNATE. basically an experimental jersey that fills the role of the city jersey. Nike logo. Alternate that can be worn either home or away.

  2. Greetings! I've decided to put forth a new logo series for my hypothetical league, the Arena Ultimate Association. Here's the imagined scenario: It's mid-2021, and arena operators and owners anticipating people in mass returning to sporting events are in need of new product, given the fall of various minor league teams/leagues the past year or so. Rather than invest in things which have had struggles like indoor football, they decide to capitalize on of the world's fastest growing sports, Ultimate Disc. While traditionally played outdoors, AUA staff have adapted the game to fit into a hockey rink-sized field. The game will be recognizable and work to maintain the unique inclusiveness and spirit of the game, while offering twists to take advantage of the new venue. It'd be starting off in Early 2022 with 8 teams, and maybe expanding if this turns out to be a hit on the forum. I'll share more details about the rules and teams later, but here's a look at the league logos and wordmarks. I hope you all enjoy! I do have some basic rules ready to go that I'll share also. This will be the basic template for league infographics moving forward.
  3. Hi Everybody, After much consideration I've decided to open up a topic dedicated to the defunct or forgotten champions of Europe. Most entries will be of clubs that are no longer active but where once prominent clubs in their home country. I will also include some still existing clubs but they have to play in the lower divisions of their respective country. All entries will have revamped crests and kits but also a bit of history, mostly who they where and what happend to the club. The entries will be presented in a group of 4 teams, just like our modern Champions League so because of that updates will be slower, but once the series kicks off there will be a good amount of teams from the very start. I will also still update my Belgian Defunct Clubs series. INDEX 1.INTRO & SUMMARY 2.GROUP A (TORINESE,LEIPZIG,POLONIA,GRADANSKI) 3.GROUP B (RACING, PRESTON NORTH END, R.A.P AMSTERDAM, KB)
  4. I've been posting my NFL concepts for a few months, but I've been doing them just one at a time. I've gotten some nice feedback (thanks) but a single concepts they do seem to disappear rather quickly. I've decided to gather them altogether, along with a few new ones (like the following Cowboy concept), which seems to be the preferred way most of us do this. As always, let me know what you think. Starting with the NFC East,
  5. Now that I've finished my NFL series, I thought I'd take on something new: NCAA Division 1 football. Vastly bigger (and way more fun) than the NFL. I'll be working my way through the Power 5 conferences, with some Group of Five/Independents thrown in the mix as I get to them. Hoping to do 2-3 per week. In no particular order: Big Ten Illinois Indiana Iowa Maryland Michigan Michigan State Minnesota Nebraska Northwestern Ohio State Penn State Purdue Rutgers Wisconsin SEC Alabama Arkansas Auburn Florida Georgia Kentucky LSU Ole Miss Mississippi State Missouri South Carolina Tennessee Texas A&M Vanderbilt Group of Five/Independents UCF Comments/feedback welcome!
  6. *Update* This is an old thread I made a few years ago, dedicated strictly to Big Ten uniforms. I've decided to re-purpose it into a general thread for all my college football concepts. The first few pages will be just the older B10 uniforms, then I'll combine in a few other older non-B10 stuff, and going forward it will be what ever college concepts I come up with. IMO the current multi-uniform craze that's been strangling college football for the past 7 or 8 years now, has reached a point of maximum stupidity. At one time, you could argue that it was cool to be one of the teams that pulled off some unexpected out-of-the-box alternate look (I'd probably argue that it was never all that cool, but you could argue it was)... but now? When 4th tier nobody teams hit the field in chrome/matte/charcoal/pattered silliness "Jumped the Shark" doesn't even begin to cover it. With that in mind, I'm remaking the 14 teams of Big Ten, each in a solid signature look. Each team gets just one home jersey, one road jersey, one helmet, one pair of shoes, one pair of socks, and a maximum of two pairs of pants. IMO if the elements are most clearly what each team should be wearing nothing else is needed. I also wanted to put each team into a Nike template, the idea being that, if the conference was united in this "one best look" concept, they should also be united in a single template. With that... here we go!
  7. Vintage Variants is a concept series not unlike the Adidas Reverse Retro series for the NHL, but I'm not doing just flipped colors. I wanted to take looks from the past and do all kinds of variations with them. Some will be color variations, some will pull in different design elements, some will be inspired by local themes, etc. I will update this post as I release each team, going alphabetically by city/region. These designs are done on the VaporFlex Jersey Template I created for UniMockups. Arizona Cardinals This one goes back to the jersey worn by Larry Fitzgerald early in his career and pulls in the colors of the desert cardinal, a bird more common in Arizona than the red Northern Cardinal. Atlanta Falcons This one taps on a jersey worn by Deion Sanders and is essentially a Reverse Retro with a grey/silver base. Really love that old bird logo and this would be a great opportunity to bring back the red helmet. Baltimore Ravens This one hearkens back to the Ray Lewis era in a golden color with white removed from the number trim and left only in the coat of arms (white border also removed there). This would pair well with a purple helmet. Buffalo Bills This one kicks it back to the 1964 look but in a cream color, with elements added from the Buffalo city flag. Before you get mad and say it looks like the Chargers - relax, it's just a concept. Carolina Panthers This one is a spin on what's really the only uniform they've ever had. Blue numbers are in, using the original proposed shade (thanks to trucolor.net). I gave the shoulder stripes a tweak, adding blue cuffs with a blue helmet. Chicago Bears This one is a blue version of their 1936 jersey with a modified helmet. The white version was extremely popular, so I wanted to see the blue and did more accurate shoulder striping. Cincinnati Bengals This one is an orange version of their classic from the Boomer Esiason days with white tiger markings on the shoulders. Had to move the markings up a tad to fit today's jersey cut, but I like how it flows. Cleveland Browns This one is a variant of their 1946 jersey with a darker seal brown and vintage silver (h/t TruColor.net) with less orange. The helmet is also silver, not, white.
  8. 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 and they're nowhere near the level of detail that I've seen from some users on this site. I'm just good 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 to. 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 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 design 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 Miami Dolphins New England Patriots New York Jets AFC North Baltimore Ravens Cincinnati Bengals Cleveland Browns Pittsburgh Steelers AFC South Houston Texans Indianapolis Colts Jacksonville Jaguars Tennessee Titans AFC West Denver Broncos Kansas City Chiefs Las Vegas Raiders Los Angeles Chargers NFC East Dallas Cowboys v2.0 New York Giants v2.0 Philadelphia Eagles Washington Red Wolves NFC North Chicago Bears Detroit Lions Green Bay Packers Minnesota Vikings NFC South Atlanta Falcons Carolina Panthers New Orleans Saints Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFC West Arizona Cardinals Los Angeles Rams San Francisco 49ers Seattle Seahawks
  9. I've made no secret of my distaste for the Brewers' new logo and uniforms. I'm hoping that the club will do with their 50th Anniversary set what they did for their 25th Anniversary set, which is make some tweaks after a couple years. With that in mind, I worked up some tweaks to the current set, and would be glad for your feedback. Nothing here is more radical than that 28th Anniversary makeover (with one notable exception we'll get to later), so I could see something like this actually happening. Template is courtesy of @rsaline, with my gratitude. The basic ground rules I set for myself: only minor changes to the typeface and logo(s). keep the color scheme. I really wanted to try and limit the scope to what the Brewers did in 1997. So, with all that said, here's the concept. The cap logo is consistent across all platforms, being a very slightly modified version of the classic logo. Certainly less modified than the current one that the owner let his kid trash. HOME UNIFORMS: I kept cream as the primary home, and pinstripes on white as an alternate. I don't think the Brewers are on a schedule anymore, but I liked the "On Fridays We Wear Pinstripes" campaign. The cream uniform eliminates the thick 70s sleeve striping in favor of taking the current pants stripes and applying it consistently to the jersey. This also ties in with the striping pattern on the current road uniforms. The sleeve patch is @ren69's gorgeous update of the Brewers' 1940s Barrelman logo. I think it works a little better as a sleeve patch than the swinging Barrelman, being more square and with fewer thin appendages. The pinstripes are clean and classic. The cap logo is repeated on the sleeves as an homage to the alternate uniform worn from 2006 through last season; the Brewers have never worn pinstripes with any other logo, so it certainly seems to fit. ROAD UNIFORMS: Again, I conformed the stripes on the road jersey. It really bothers me that none of the current jerseys have the same striping. The sleeve patch is carried over from the home creams, to create another consistent element in the two primary sets. I did consider re-coloring his uniform to gray, but decided to keep him in the home uniform. The road alternate is near-perfect (so long as I'm keeping the current scripts). All I did was swap out the sleeve patch for the Barrelman batting. And here's where we get creative. HOME/ROAD ALTERNATE: Although powder blue is overused in MLB right now, the Brewers certainly have a claim to it (even originating the #PowerBlue hashtag a couple seasons ago). This jersey could be worn on the road or at home, and incorporates the classic Milwaukee wordmark with the People's Flag of Milwaukee, symbol of the city. Well, whadd'ya think?
  10. This is the latest iteration of a project that I've been working on for quite some time. I've never completely finished it, for one reason or another. Anyway, this is my vision of what the league could look like if it was Nike that had the exclusive contract with the league rather than Reebok followed by Adidas. The jersey template is based on pre-2014 Nike designs, so no flywire collars. Those look stupid. Following the real-life example of Nike and the NBA, every team will have four jerseys. However, they won't follow the same pattern as the NBA, i.e., teams can wear whichever jerseys they want whenever they want. The Nike NHL teams have one dark home jersey, one light road jersey, one dark alternate jersey and one light alternate jersey. Teams still wear dark colors at home and light colors on the road. Anyway, on with the show.

  11. I'm a big fan of vintage logos so I decided to try my hand at updating the Texas Longhorns logo. C & C is always welcomed! *EDIT* Here's an index of all the updated logos done as of 2/16/2015 in this thread courtesy of Doyle524 & davidmiller5. Thank you! http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/95922-updating-vintage-logos/?p=2209439
  12. Hey all, Long-time lurker of the site and forums, first-time poster. Like a lot of people the shelter-in-place has led to much more hobby time than I ever could have imagined. So I tried my hand at designing a uniform for a fictional team in my hometown. It quickly evolved into a full eight-team league. I'm definitely no artist and cobbled together a few designs off a reworked jersey template I found through Google Search, a hat template from @Htown1141 and a pant & stirrup template of my own design. The designs themselves were inspired by what I've been watching during the quarantine including a ton of old World Series films on YouTube, a lot of When It Was a Game/Flagstaff Films clips and "The Natural." So we have a Single-A minor league set in 1939 in the Bay Area known as the Coastal Fog League. The league logo is below and not a masterpiece by any means, but meant to evoke the blend of California's sunny climate and the infamous fog that likes to roll in on summer evenings around San Francisco Bay. San Bruno Seals - San Francisco's team reappears in the suburbs First team up is the genesis for all this, from my hometown. Inspired by the legendary San Francisco Seals, we'll suspend belief and pretend that the Pacific Coast League version lost the war for fans to the Mission Reds, hence the name being available for a Single-A team. The chest logo mimics the classic mark from the real Seals of the Joe DiMaggio era, which in turn borrowed from the White Sox of the 1910-20's. I went for a basic, but different color scheme of green and white simply because green is my favorite color. I've always had a fondness for teams of the 20's and 30's that had logoless white home or gray road caps with piping, so that was a must and an element that'll come back again. This road cap was inspired by the real Seals logo cap from ~1939 with a slightly different take on the logo. Another detail from that era was a solid-colored button placket. Had to include that sharp looking (but dubious) Baseball Centennial patch. The other patch is a nod to the actual San Bruno city seal and plays off the various city-related patches of this era. This simple Boston anniversary design came to mind. And I wanted to do a set with white road stirrups. I'm not fully sure it works, but it has a vaguely White Sox feel to it. Comments and critiques are definitely welcome for someone dipping into this for the first time. Seals References
  13. So in case you haven't seen it in the College Football 2020 thread, Kellen Mond seems to be hinting that the Aggies will be moving back to their throwbacks as the primary look. Compounding that with the debate on whether the Aggies should keep or dump the bevel, I thought I'd take a stab at some concepts, as well as needing a mental break from my 1972 Project. While I'm not against the possible changes, it does seem a step down from what they're currently wearing with the racing stripes. Rather than flood that thread with some ideas, I'll take my talents here and see what you all think: This was in essence what I put in the 2020 thread, albeit on a Nike template, so I migrated it to an almost current Adidas template. The bevels are all gone, everywhere which will be the case on anything posted here. This one sees the helmet gain a helmet stripe to match the pants and satiate those that say there's no cohesion between helmet, jerseys and pants. Otherwise, everything really stays the same. This one sees the opposite direction as Option A, with the pant stripes going away, keeping the hip logo, but the stripeless pants now create harmony between them and the helmets. Jerseys remain unchanged. As was pointed out to me in the 2020 thread, Texas A&M's look is inspired by the 70's look, but they didn't go all the way with it. This is the "they went all the way with it" option, with everything having a double stripe on it. Let me know what y'all think, what you guy's might wanna see out of this. I hadn't thought of alternates for these, but they're probably coming as well, so as I always seem to say: C&C welcome!
  14. I've never posted a hockey concept before. I just recently got a template together, so I thought I'd try it out. I had a lot of fun making it. Thoughts?
  15. Felt a bit creative tonight and mocked up a concept for the Carolina Panthers. The White pants are the primary for the Home Black and Alt Blue uniforms, with Black as the alternate. Black pants are the primary for the Away uniform, with all-White as an option. I imagine that the Blue uniforms would be the default Home look in the early season unless playing at night. The Anthracite CR uniform is meant to be the 'Panther Pride' look. Template by Oldschoolvikings, hopefully you are okay with my using it, if not, please let me know!
  16. I was brousing the net while working@home during this COVID 19 crazyness. And I saw a drawing of what the fleld for the new LA Rams field might look like. So I drew it up. Let me know what yout think!

  18. Hey guys, I've always been interested in doing concepts for fictional sports leagues and I have noticed that there are definitely some cities for which assigning a name can be exceedingly difficult. Like I'm sure many of you do, I try to give my team names some sort of connection with the city (historical, economical, whatever) but for some cities I have major problems. So my question for discussion is, what cities give you the most trouble when doing a fictional league? I know for me my top three are usually LA, Charlotte, and Toronto. Would love to hear what everyone else thinks on the subject!
  19. I joined just a few months ago after years of lurking here, so I thought I might as well get started on sharing my own concepts with the community. I am trying to make a Nike set for NBA teams (consisting of association, icon, statement, and either one or the other of a city or a classic). I started with my favorite, also slightly updated their primary and alternate logo. Philadelphia 76ers - White (Association); Red (Icon); Blue (Statement); White (Classic - 2001 Home Uniform)
  20. With the switch to Nike in 2020 its a good opportunity to reassess the direction I'd go for all 30 current MLB teams. So with any gilding the lily or further ado, here we go. AL EAST BALTIMORE ORIOLES Although I love the current Orioles look, I've recently become interested in a lot of the uniforms from the early days of the Orioles that deployed solid black piping, especially on the road. The Orioles brought this back when they went retro in the 90's but I don't think they properly committed to that look. To that end, I've gone with double width black piping at home and away and a tail-less version of their modern script. The sleeve design is a take on the smiling bird that adorned the sleeve in the 60's and we have an all black alternate reminiscent of the original Baltimore Orioles who latter became the Yankees.
  21. Hey everyone! I've been getting more into the graphic design area of sports and rather than drawing all my logos/uniforms I took a shot at putting one in photoshop. Here is what turned out. I am just looking for feedback and suggestions and might start a fantasy league in the future.
  22. Hi all, With the AAF season underway and looking more and more like an NFL farm system, I decided to take that literally. I have assigned all 32 NFL teams an affiliate farm team and given them an assigned stadium. However, I will keep the current eight teams and assign them to NFL affiliates with minor recoloring to match their respective teams (they may receive new stadiums to scale down though). I will be going division by division and explaining team names, starting with the AFC East going till the NFC West. I'm excited to work on this, so here goes nothing! Toronto Hogs (Buffalo Bills Affiliate): Nicknamed the hogs due to "Hogtown" being one of Toronto's many nicknames, Toronto would make a great ground for the Bills affiliate, as it would allow for the NFL to expand internationally for the first time and since the Bills played a game in Toronto annually for many years in the past, the affiliate should have fan support. Orlando Apollos (Miami Dolphins Affiliate): The team name and logo remain the same, but are recolored to the Dolphins' signature teal and both shades of orange they used in their history. New Jersey Fighters (New York Jets Affiliate): Obviously a reference to a fighter plane, like the Jets and the logo is in a similar style to the parent organization, even with the impending branding change. It would allow for the team to hang onto their older, retro identity. Providence Minutemen (New England Patriots Affiliate): Referring to the famous soldiers during the American revolution, it fits the Patriots' brand and identity. Let me know your thoughts/suggestions! I will be doing the AFC North next!
  23. I've never done NBA concept series like this before. I've only done court designs but never jerseys. Big shout out to Hoopladawg87 for sharing one of his templates with me, and to Daniel Ramone for creating it. This series is mostly a tweak of what teams were wearing during the 2017/2018 season. Home and roads only for now. I hope to finish it. Up first, the Philadelphia 76ers No major changes here. Just reverting the roads to red because blue looks a little boring them. Updating the wordmark to match the font on their 2017/18 City Jersey which I think makes the jersey looks less cluttered (thin wordmark makes more room for thick side panels). #2. Orlando Magic Inspired by the T-Mac era jerseys, as 90s as they are, I think the stars could work (if Atlanta's triangles are any indication of a watermark pattern would look like) and they're a more unique identifier than pinstripes (which I think are a little tired). I also switched the blue out for a darker shade which I think suits a Florida team more. Feedback welcome of course.
  24. After stumbling across this website because I like uniform design concepts and making my first attempt with a Bengals redesign, I've decided to give it a go on the whole NFL. Some will be full redesigns while others will just be tweaks. I had a pretty simple baseline: Home and Away Uniforms for everyone, plus up to two extras between alternates and "throwbacks". The throwbacks tend to be a blend between throw and faux backs, but they are typically based in an actual throwback. Additionally, each uniform could have a secondary pair of pants deemed alternate, i.e. Home Alternate. Additionally, I placed them on a green background to show the contrast on grass. I based my templates from this @edjb93's template (to which he credits whoever created it and @LEWJ). So thank you both for sharing the templates! I hope you all enjoy, and let me know what you think!
