  1. Here are a couple logo ideas for the rebrand of the Cleveland Indians. I went with the two most common names I've seen thrown around on social media since the announcement and tried to come up with simple but bold logo options. Please let me know any feedback on these ideas and if you feel like the logomarks and color schemes are working. Guardians: I liked the idea of referencing the design of the helmet on the "guardian" statue from this bridge in Cleveland and applying it to the "C". I wanted the overall form to feel fast and sharp. I think the one thing that could be tricky with an asymmetrical form like this is how to center it on the cap, but in general I'm happy with the concept. I used the "wine & gold" color scheme to align to the Cavaliers (I personally like when cities align the color palettes of their sports teams). Spiders: After I started sketching ideas for this logo I realized that a spider is a much tougher form to work with than I originally thought. Here are some of the other iterations I explored: I ended up using a concept that I think works well but that feels like a pretty obvious solution (I literally logged on to start this post and saw someone else with a Cleveland Spiders design that is essentially the exact same concept). Maybe I will keep riffing and try to come up with a more original solution to this. I really like the idea of incorporating the form of spider legs within the C letter form as a way of hinting at a spider without being too literal. Here are some half-baked sketches of what I am referring to. Anyway, here is where I'm at with it currently. I used the dark charcoal gray and red color scheme similar to the old Cleveland Spiders branding. Let me know if you guys have any feedback. Thanks!
  2. I used to have a clunky old template that I'd cobbled together from 3 or 4 other templates, but I never liked it much so I never used it. At some point I'd found a drawing of a baseball player that I thought might make a possible template if I fiddled around with it, but I never had the time. So anyway, world wide pandemic, and I have time. Here it is...
  3. I did this Cleveland Spiders' concept, and I'm trying out various color schemes. Obviously they could keep navy and red (in fact, my guess is they will), but rebranding is a good opportunity to reduce MLB's overabundance of navy/red teams. First, brown and scarlet. Completely unique color scheme in sports and an easy connection to the Cleveland Browns.
  4. Hello to all. I've been away from the boards for another year or so but I'm (maybe) back! We all know the Cleveland Indians are pulling a Washington and dropping their name to move away from any offensive brand material. I got bored between exams and decided to step into Illustrator and try some things out. I'll keep the explanations brief because I'm aware most of you want to see concepts - rather than read a short novel. I've always loved the Indians "C" logo and I really want them to keep it for the future. It's simple and clean. I also love their colours. I know red and blue is a bit overused, but I don't see a viable reason to change them at this point in time. (unless someone can point me in the direction of a better combo) My idea... I'm sure most of you are aware of the Cleveland Spiders. Established in 1887, they are one of Cleveland's first professional baseball teams. The team went through several name changes and rebrands, eventually becoming the Indians we all know and "love" today. FYI, they became the Indians to honour one of their first Native American players - Louis Sockalexis. I'd like to believe this is the truth, but the claim is consistently disputed. There are a number of really good Spider concepts so for the sake of being different, I went with an alternate option. I don't actually have a set name in mind, but I'm hoping one of you guys can suggest one. The name I'll be using for now is the Citizens. I know it's not the best nickname but I've heard it thrown around and figured I'd try and do it justice. My concept isn't crazy or groundbreaking but I'm hoping this is a start of a real project. PRIMARY LOGO WORDMARKS ROUNDEL CONCEPT Now here's where it gets a little weirder... Cleveland is the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I figured they could be the first MLB team (in 2020) to embrace a music-centric brand. My rough idea was an electric guitar extending into a baseball bat. I'm not really sure where to go from here or how to use the mark, so I'd love some feedback! That's all I have at the moment. I'm working on some potential uniforms so stay tuned for that in the next couple days! I'd love any feedback and comments, little or big! Everything constructive helps! T
  5. With the news of Cleveland changing their name, I figured I'd take a shot at a redesign. I had actually made a Cleveland Spiders identity for a fantasy team years ago, and I've carried a few elements from that over and combined it with the look of the real Cleveland team. I made the block C more square to better fit a spider web inside of it, and aligned the ends of the C with the diagonal lines of the web. I continued this angled end motif throughout the numbers, Cleveland wordmark, and Spiders script. For the uniforms, I kept them fairly similar to what they have been wearing, but I made the home set more red heavy, like what they wore from 1994-2001. I included a semi-throwback to the Cleveland Naps, turning the grey uniform they wore into cream so it can be worn at home.
  6. 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
  7. Studio Series: Tuning the 2019 MLB All-Star Logo August 7, 2018 - 18:24 PM The 2019 MLB All-Star Game plans to amplify the rock-and-roll history of Cleveland, starting with the event’s logo, officially unveiled today. But long before the big reveal of the guitar-laden theme came the exploration of all things rock-and-roll, intense typography […] Read More...

  9. Hello, This is the first time I've ever done a concept. It is rough, but i hope you guys like it. So, the MLB wants Cleveland to get rid of Chief Wahoo. Their current logo is boring, plain, and doesn't say "Indians" Here are the logos and uniforms! Hope you enjoy! This is their current "C" logo with some feathers attatched This is and old "Indians" on their current jerseys with the block C and a new hat. Current Away jersey with new C, and hat
  10. Went on Dribbble today and found a great concept for the Cleveland Indians. The work was done by Danny Sherman, I'm not sure if he's on the boards so I wanted to show of this great piece in his behalf. I think that that negative space "I" in the block C really helps give it that little spark of interest that their current primary logo desperately needs. If you're on Dribbble, go give him some love: https://dribbble.com/shots/3080323-Cleveland-Still-Rocks
  11. This is a logo concept I've been thinking about lately. Not a fan of the team though, but feel free to look an comment. Not sure if I want to do uniforms in the future... Feel free to check out my Dribbble for more info.
  12. Hi, We all know how awful the Browns are and, more specifically, how awful and bland their helmet logo has been. So, I decided to create a fun concept attempting to fix the Browns' identity once and for all. Integrating both Browns history (here) and the identity of Cleveland (here), I think this logo would be great. Hope you guys like it! Feel free to comment any suggestions or praise!
  13. I'm a huge fan of the NBA's Chinese New Year alternate uniforms. I think its a really cool and unique way to reach out to a different audience abroad. I knew that this year I wanted to make a Chinese New Year concept uniform for a team. I was thinking first about making one for a team with a large immigrant Chinese population, such as New York or LA. However, I started thinking about designing a uniform for the Cavs. This seemed a bit weird to me at first because Cleveland doesn't have the same connection to China any of the other teams with Chinese New Year alternates might have. However, they are the defending world champs. They have a chance to branch out to a new market in China with their recent successes. The Cav's colors also work perfectly with the red and yellow often seen around the New Year celebrations. I first wanted to design some sort of alternate logo for the uniforms. I played around with a bunch of ideas, but I settled on the logo below. "Cavaliers" is written in red simplified Mandarin script with a gold outline. The sabre that is in the "C" alternate logo is in the background, and transitions to being in front of the second character for some more contrast. It's a pretty different logo for the Cavs, but I think it works pretty well. Now, for the uniforms. I wanted to do something similar to what the rockets have done with their Chinese New Year uniforms, by keeping the template and colors pretty much the same except replacing the English script with Mandarin script. Here are the uniforms. I based my design off of the navy alternate jersey that Cleveland has. "Cleveland" is spelled in red Mandarin script with a gold outline. The red number with gold outline is in its normal position underneath. On the back of the jersey, the alternate Cavs logo lies underneath the collar. Under the back number is a special year of the rooster logo I designed for this concept. The shorts are the typical Cavs shorts except with the alternate logo in place of the "C" logo. All in all, the uniforms are your typical Cavs jerseys except with some new logos and wordmarks mixed in. Hope you enjoyed my concept! Any C&C and feedback is welcomed! If anyone is celebrating Chinese New Year, have a good holiday!
  14. Decided to rebrand the Browns since they've been horrible since coming back into league in 1999. I think this will give them a fresh start that they desperately need. Went with brown helmets for a few reasons: To get away from looking like Cincinnati's twin and a team named the Browns should be embrace the color. Added grey to the colors because it seems to be the cool thing to do these days and it also works well with the orange and brown. Wanted the set to be modern but with a classic feel. C&C appreciated.
  15. The 2016 World Series will be a historic one, to put it mildly. The Chicago Cubs have not won a World Series in 108 years; the Indians have waited 68. In just a few days' time, the history of one of those long-suffering teams will be changed forever. That's a pretty big deal. So for this set, I decided to look at some meaningful uniforms the two teams have worn over the last century. Much like my previous entries in this series, these uniforms would be worn a couple times per season, tops. The Cubs and Indians aren't true rivals, but I have a feeling they'll become them after this postseason. Let's start with the Cubs: CHICAGO CUBS For the Cubs home set, I decided to go with a clean, pinstripe-less look based on their home unis from 1945, which was the last time they appeared in the World Series. I used their current primary logo and a white cap with blue bill similar to their 1908 caps. I went with road pinstripes for their away set, but replaced the old "bear with bat" logo with their current "walking bear" alternate logo. CLEVELAND INDIANS: The Indians home set is a combination of two looks: their 1948 home unis and their late '80s "Major League"-era unis. As such, I'm thinking of making this uniform off-white to give it an old-timey look and to separate it from the Cubs home set. Their road set is loosely based on the Cleveland Cavaliers "Pride" uniforms, which the Cavs wore when they clinched the NBA Finals Championship this past June. I'm thinking of adding front numbers on the opposite side of the block "C," as well as eliminating the sleeve stripes to make it even truer to those Cavs jerseys. I left the road cap blank for now because I haven't yet decided how it should look. I'm leaning towards using Chief Wahoo, so that every cap in this series won't have a "C" on it. As controversial as Wahoo may be, the fact remains that he's been a big part of the Indians identity for the last half century. Any suggestions for the cap would be great. As always, C&C appreciated!
