  1. 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.

  2. Not too long ago, I made Australian rules football jumpers based on National Football League teams. This time, I followed suit ding the same thing for Canadian Football League teams. Hope you like. Starting in the East, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Montreal Alouettes Ottawa Redblacks Toronto Argonauts
  3. I figured I start a new thread for the CFL here in 2020. I apologize if there's already a new 2020 CFL thread. Feel free to delete this if someone has already made a 2020 CFL thread. In terms of uniform changes for 2020, I have a feeling that we will have a different situation from what we saw in the short-lived Adidas era. I think we will likely see at least one new uniform this season. I have heard the Alouettes are doing a fan-design contest for a new third jersey and uniform for 2021. For 2020, so far, I have not heard anything - although I love the drop-shadowless Eskimos logo. I do think we will see some new alternate designs in the New Era era of the CFL.
  4. Welcome to what is now my first completed concept series, the NHL City Mashup Series! In this series, I will be taking the identity of each NHL team and combining it with the identity of another team (different sport) in that team's city. Some rules I set for myself were Team must be in either the MLB, NBA, NFL, MLS, or CFL. The jersey must be in the style of the NHL team's jersey. The other team's colours will be the ones on the jersey. The fonts should be either the official team's font or a close matching font. Teams: Anaheim Ducks (Angels) Arizona Coyotes (Cardinals) Boston Bruins (Celtics) Buffalo Sabres (Bills) Calgary Flames (Stampeders) Carolina Hurricanes (Charlotte Hornets) Chicago Blackhawks (Cubs) Colorado Avalanche (Nuggets) Columbus Blue Jackets (Crew) Dallas Stars (Cowboys) Detroit Red Wings (Tigers) Edmonton Oilers (Eskimos) Florida Panthers (Heat) Los Angeles Kings (Dodgers) Minnesota Wild (Twins) Montreal Canadiens (Expos) Nashville Predators (Titans) New Jersey Devils (Jets) New York Islanders (Nets) New York Rangers (Knicks) Ottawa Senators (Redblacks) Philadelphia Flyers (Eagles) Pittsburgh Penguins (Pirates) San Jose Sharks (49ers) St Louis Blues (Cardinals) Tampa Bay Lightning (Buccaneers) Toronto Maple Leafs (Raptors) Vancouver Canucks (Whitecaps) Vegas Golden Knights (Raiders) Washington Capitals (Wizards) Winnipeg Jets (Blue Bombers) without further adieu, here's the first mashup, the Anaheim Angels in the style of the Anaheim Ducks. (Yes, I am aware they aren't the Anaheim Angels, but heck with that) C&C is appreciated! I am also considering doing throwback jerseys for each mashup, I'd like to hear your thoughts on the idea.
  5. Welcome and Enjoy! I'm a huge CFL fan. With the Grey Cup this weekend, and the unveiling of the newly named Atlantic Schooners, I thought it would be a good time to unveil what I've been working on for quite some time now. Using this site,, and fan opinions, I tried to put together how I believe the CFL would look if I were in charge...and could only use paint. I start alphabetically, with the Atlantic Schooners. Atlantic Schooners Thanks to @BenjiJ for cleaning up this logo. The Schooners have just been announced as the team name for the new team set to play in 2021. Flashback to a couple of months ago while I was on and off while working on this project, I took the color codes from Trucolor and logo of the original team and put my spin on how the failed attempt at bringing football to the Atlantic Coast of Canada would look today if they had played. Uniforms: Home and Away: Alternates: I hope you all enjoy the beginning to this thread.
  6. I thought I'd put this thread together. I think we will see something new this year now that it has been a couple years since the Adidas CFL uniform change. If there's another thread like this, feel free to take this one down.
  7. It appears the Montreal Alouettes are about to launch a complete re-brand with new uniforms, helmet and logo... Montreal Alouettes tease potential jersey launch
  8. As the CFL season rolls around, I decided to create uniforms for all of the CFL teams for Adidas' Primeknit uniforms because I think they look better than the mesh uniforms currently being worn. The template I am using is a little outdated, but here is what Adidas's new A1 Primeknit uniforms, which will be worn by NCAA teams this fall, look like. Toronto Argonauts

    Fixing the CFL

    When Adidas took over the CFL uniforms in 2016, they hit home runs with a few, most notably the Toronto Argonauts and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Unfortunately there were a few real duds like Montreal and Calgary. One thing I really dislike is that so many teams use the same template with the arm striping (BC, Calgary, Sask, Ottawa) and side panels (Calgary, Sask, Ottawa). When will this idiotic trend go away! My first submission is Montreal. Right now they possibly have the worst uniform design of all time, especially combined with a really bad cartoon logo. My fix here is pretty simple: new logo with clean design based on their glory days in the 70's. To me this seems like a real easy fix.

    CFL Color Rush

    I know most people hate the color rush unis but I was inspired by JimmyN64's great designs so thought I'd see how CFL might look. I didn't include the stupid one helmet rule. Will add more when I have time and probably do some throwbacks as well. Here are the first few. Cheers!
  11. This is just a quick and dirty concept I whipped up as an idea, should the Edmonton Eskimos choose to change the team name. I don't have a dog in the fight, so please stay away from the Native American mascot talk and keep to the concept. I think Polar Bears or Nannut, the Inuit word for polar bears, makes a lot of sense for Edmonton. Here's how it might look on the helmet: Here's a quick look at a green helmet: Please feel free to offer any criticism and critiques because this is just a very quick rough draft. I like the way it's headed but I'm not sure it's really there yet. Thanks for taking the time to have a look.
  12. The 83rd Grey Cup is the only Cup to have been won by an American Team, the Baltimore Stallions from the CFL's short time in the US. However, the Stallions folded shortly thereafter. So where is the physical Grey Cup? Who has it? Is it in Baltimore? Is it with the CFL? I want to know where the cup is and answer the bigger question of what you do with championship trophies for franchise that fold. Where are the USFL Championship trophies? Or the ones for the World Football League, NFL Europe, or the Arena teams that folded. Someone has to have them right?
  13. With rumors floating of a possible comeback of the XFL, I remembered the last time Birmingham, Alabama had a pro outdoor football team. Up until the United Football League, there had been a Birmingham team in most startup pro football leagues. Now timeline may be a bit iffy like the last look back I did but I hope you will get a general sense of what the teams were like. This is little simpler than last time as many of teams lived brief lives. Sometimes glorious, sometimes not. First off, we have the 1974 Birmingham Americans of the World Football League, they will be first Birmingham team in the WFL and the only champions as the league fold shortly into its 2nd season. The logo was an A that alluded to the American flag with 3 red stripes making up one half of the A and a solid blue part making the other. Pretty prominently featured is the star made out of the negative space created by the blue and red halves, A little blue triangle was added at the bottom to complete the star. There were two alternate logos that were used This one is the primary logo with an Birmingham Americans wordmark up top. Birmingham being in blue and Americans in red. The 2nd had the blue wordmark moved to the right side and the font changed The road jerseys were blue with white numbers and an alternating red-white stripes on the sleeve Pants were white complemented by a red belt and had a blue stripe bookended by red -white stripes on both side. Pants were not changed for home jerseys Home jerseys were white with blue numbers outlined in red and there was an alternating red-blue stripe on the sleeve. it appears the 0 and holes in 8 in the numbers on sleeves ere filled in with red Socks were the same for both home and road with a pattern of blue-white-red-white-red-white-blue Helmets were white with grey facemasks and the primary logo were on both sides. There was a blue stripe bookended on both sides by a red stripe. The Americans would fold after the 1974 WFL season but was replaced with the Vulcans for the 1975 season The Vulcans primary logo was a blue V with a red flare enclosed in a blue circle. The V was designed to resemble a torch with the flare being a flame, the V following in the Americans footsteps used negative space to create a shape which in the Vulcans case was a football. The alternate logo was the torch V placed in a blue wordmark Uniforms did not change much. Socks were same for both road and home. blue-red stripes bookending a white stripe in middle. Helmets essentially the same aside from a logo change and the addition of a blue facemask Although the WFL went under, the Vulcans moniker would resurface in the American Football Association a few years later. As this is a bit obscure minor league football team, scant info exists on the web. The AFA Vulcans ditched the red, white, and blue color scheme of the previous Vulcans and opted for red and black. The primary logo can be seen as a spin on the Americans land Vulcans logo. As it is the Americans A and the letter V conjoined together. This time with no negative space in the A which is replaced by a football. There still is use of a negative space to create a torch with the insides of a V. Only uniform I could find is a black uniform with red number outlined in white. The stripes on the sleeves were orange-white-orange-white-orange. Atop the numbers, you can see there is a Vulcans wordmark in orange outlined in white. The V is made of three red stripes and a black part. The V makes a torch out of the negative space and a flame
  14. I had a couple ideas...I brings them to you. Avant garde, in one of the few places where it would make perfect sense. The 70s-80s flying alouette figures pretty heavily into this uniform, as the helmet and pants stripe, and also separated to form the assymetrical elements of the jersey: the alouette is on the right sleeve, while the A becomes a sash over the left shoulder. The third also uses the old logo, this time blown up on the shoulders, with the alouette serving as a stylized shoulder stripe. The old Als script is placed beneath the front numbers. On all three jerseys, the early 70s bird head is placed on the back of the collar.
  15. We are a few months out of the start of the regular season, but with the Free Agency starting this week let's get the ball rolling. Some big news from today is the Saskatchewan Roughriders have reportedly been in contract discussions with QB Vince Young. Yes. THAT Vince Young. He's 33 years old and attempting a comeback after a 2 year absence. I believe he still has a few decent years left in his tank. Hoping for the best with him.
  16. I wonder if, given today's post in the 2015 CFL Uniforms thread about Saskatchewan's new logo, it is time to post up the 2016 CFL Uniforms thread?
  17. Let's start off the 2016 CFL season and the race to the 2016 Grey Cup!
  18. Hello! This is a concept for a football team in Saint Louis, Missouri. I'll be working on it some more in the future til then, feel free to critique. Also please keep these ideas in mind: - I have no clue how pandas are related to St. Louis. Oh well! - The base Helmet was created by Chris Maurer - The rest of this project is at Enjoy!

  20. Hey guys, obviously I do not post much around here but trust I am searching the boards everyday this is by far one of my favourite places on the internet. The reason why i am posting however is that I am launching a new website project, and usually I like to do my own design stuff for my projects but I just simply am not as good at it as some of you on this board and am thinking I want to try and up the ante and put together a really well designed package to polish my site off and attract some views. Basically I am looking for a partner of sorts who can handle the design side of the website which frees me up for content because I put a lot of man hours into working on the look of the site but it just becomes too time consuming, I always try to have my own material where I can so instead of using stock photos or other news outlets photos, I like to create my own headers, infographics etc. so it'd be great if I had a talented person who can focus on the design side of things. Here is a link to my old website just to give an idea The website is dedicated to all coverage on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats who are my hometown team. The name is Eat 'Em Raw (originally was Eat Em Raw Radio) and the slogan is "A quick fix for your Tiger-Cats Addiction". Here are some of my current header designs and random wallpapers (not very good at all...which is why I am here), but they should give you a general idea of what I am looking for, but I am all for suggestions and different designs. I am just seeking somebody who is hopefully passionate about design and also the CFL if possible who is willing to take on this project with me, even if I can get a few people that'd be great.
  21. This is what I think the Alouettes need, considering their jerseys. The current ones are a mess and I really don't wanna rant about how sth that messy and unprofessional can be assigned and left for years untouched, to a great big team like the Montreal Alouettes. The design is simple, I kept the current team's colors, knocked out the silver from the pants, and only left it on the helmet. I was inspired by their 1974 unis, that they rocked for 6-7 years, seen here as a throwback: Anyway, this is the concept, tell me what you think. Home: Away:
  22. Seeing as Adidas will be replacing Reebok as the official uniform provider of the CFL effective next season, I decided to mock up some concepts using Adidas new template. First up we have the Toronto Argonauts. I took the same approach to the sleeve stripes as the Green Bay Packers did when they shortened sleeves, as Adidas sleeves are notorious for being excessively short. As well as shortening the stripe, I removed the blue pants, kept the signature-uniform helmet, and added a light blue jersey. C&C always appreciated.
  23. With a release date set for the official CFL Adidas uniforms, I've decided to redesign the league. Every team has at least 1 present (former?) uniform altered in some way. The template didn't include editable socks, and in an attempt to get this out as soon as I could, I just left them as is. Assume the socks would match the undershirt. BC Lions This is a combination of eras for the Leos. They return the the late 1990s / early 2000s silver helmets and pants, but take inspiration from the past in the jerseys. The orange with black number is a nod to the inaugural look for the team, and the sleeve striping is a modernization of their 1960s design. The alternate uniform is an all black look that is based off the popular set the Lions have worn the past few seasons, but with traditional striping to give it a retro feel as well. Calgary Stampeders The Stamps kept their home uniform almost identical to their previous look, only swapping the sleeve logo out for their alternate logo and changing their italicized font to a more traditional one. The road uniforms see a return of the red helmet. In fact, the away uniforms are now primarily white and red with only hints of black trim. Like the Lions, Calgary went with an all black alternate uniform after the popularity of their previous one. The alternate horse in horseshoe logo makes an appearance on the helmet. Edmonton Eskimos The defending Grey Cup champion Eskimos used the occasion to simplify their look. The home uniform switches to a more minimal striping pattern, and the road uniform ditches the green side panels, as well as the green helmet and pants that went with the previous look. The green helmets and pants would find a new home in the team's alternate uniform that features a less than appealing yellow jersey. Saskatchewan Roughriders The Riders are looking to bounce back from a sub par season, and their new look is a great first step. The side panels were removed, and horizontal sleeve stripes were introduced. The white helmets were ditched, but the Riders still have monochrome or green on white options available at home and on the road. Saskatchewan did not unveil an alternate uniform, but team management said the throwback uniforms worn for the last handful of seasons should be "expected to make an appearance" this season. Winnipeg Blue Bombers The Bombers could very well win the league re branding with this set. The team completed it's throwback trend (started with the logo in 2012) by returning to royal blue and vibrant gold. The jersey font changes, as well as the striping pattern which has a classic feel. Like their neighbours to the West, Winnipeg did not unveil an alternate uniform, but have asked the fans (*cough*, you guys, *cough*) to design one for the team to break out next season. Toronto Argonauts With their move into BMO Field complete, the Argos make some changes for the 2016 season. The early mid 1990s full Argonaut logo returns, but this time devoid of teal. The stripes move back to the shoulders and are similar to the 2005-2011 look. The home and away sets are otherwise the same as the previous look for Toronto. A vintage inspired powder blue alternate jersey was introduced as well. Hamilton Tiger Cats With the rest of the league going retro, the Ti Cats took a huge risk and modernized their look. The concept is still the same, but traditional stripes on the jerseys and pants were replaced by tiger patterned stripes. The alternate uniform even has the tiger stripes on the helmet (as well as the tiger head logo making it's helmet debut). The jersey in the alternate set has a US college feel to it with the horizontal stripe through the chest. Ottawa RedBlacks While the team's name is still.... well, not good, the same cannot be said about the new uniforms. The plaid stripes are now on every jersey and each pair of pants as well. To ensure that they are the RED blacks and not the BLACK blacks, the facemask, home uniform socks, and away jersey numbers, are now red. Montréal Alouettes The Alouettes completely overhauled their look after it remaining the same for the past decade. In a ying-yang blend of retro and modern, the Als welcome back red and white as the lone primary colours, as well as the wing on the helmets. While blue can only be found as a trim colour in the main set, Montréal's new alternate jersey is blue, very blue. It is a tribute to the province of Québec and will be worn for the team's home opener. Well, this was my quick attempt at a re designed CFL. I'd love to hear what you all think!
  24. This is my first ever concept series (and first ever real concepts). So please leave some good C&C, I know I need a lot of practice on the technique. The idea is CFL hockey jerseys. Using the current CFL colours and logos (or as close as I could get) put onto hockey jerseys in styles close to or inspired by their current CFL uniforms. First up, my hometown team the BC Lions.
  25. Yes, it's time to talk 3 downs and the smell of burnt rubber. The 2015 CFL Season is almost here. Can Calgary repeat? Will Ottawa improve? Is Michael Sam better suited to the CFL than the NFL? Find out these, and many other questions, in the 2015 CFL season thread.
