  1. 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...
  2. 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
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.

  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. This is my first shot making a team concept and had a lot of fun making it. I decided to go with the team name STAG because of the white tail deer, Ohio's state animal. The colors and design and a play off the Cavs. I wanted to do this because of the Cleveland All In campaign and thought it would help connect the team with the city and fans. I would love to get some feed back on what you think and what changes I can/should make
  16. As a Cleveland Browns Fan, I have a love hate relationship with the new uniforms. I tried to incorporate the good things they did and exclude the bad. I personally like the Cleveland word mark across the front. It just needs to be re sized. I went ahead and added the "rising" shadow from the numbers to the Cleveland word mark. The worst thing on the uniform in my opinion is the contrasting numbers on the home jersey. I went ahead and changed the numbers to white. One pretty major change I included was orange shoulder caps. Yes, I know no one likes shoulder caps but I think they look good here. I tried to focus on uniformity throughout the whole uniform. The helmet still has the same satin finish that it currently does. The brown face mask is okay, but I love white for the Browns. And like the Miami Dolphins, I made a throwback for special occasions, mostly Thursday or Monday Night games. I based it off the uniforms of the Brian Sipe era: So I will start off with the home uniforms: rough photoshop of new uniforms to look like my concept. Next is the away: Now on to the orange alternate. I don't like the monochrome look but I added it just because. Now here is the throwback. It is very similar to their old uniforms. Thanks for Looking!
  17. The Indians, have been a team surrounded by controversy involving their iconic Chief Wahoo logo which has since been demoted to a secondary logo back in 2014 in favor of the very bland and unpopular Block C logo which adorns the road and alternate home caps. I've been a lifelong Tribe fan and I have always loved the Chief logo and I tend to use the hashtag #KeepTheChief on twitter at times but in honesty, the Tribe needs a new primary logo and that is the first thing you'll see in this series ranging from a rebranded logo to a new uniform design. (No I'm not going the route of the D-Backs if you're curious.) But with my concept logo, It will give the Tribe a logo that I'm sure both Pro Wahoo and Anti Wahoo fans can cope with so here it is below: Primary Logo: The logo is in a roundel form with red white and blue are represented that will be represented on the uniforms.In the roundel, the ball club's wordmark logo is used with a baseball seems in the background to add a little something to an already blank background.Baseball Club, the year the team was established and the years the Tribe won the World Series with the World Series trophy above are represented with additional years to be added if future titles are won.The logo would be used as a primary logo seen across Progressive (Jacobs) Field, team wear, team items and the Indians on deck circle.There are a few tweaks that I may need to make like for example, one of the seems overlapping I would need to fix at a later date, but overall I like how the logo turned out to be clean and classy and not as busy as my Cavs concept logo. Let me know what you think and would like to hear some feedback on possible improvements as I go on.
  18. Here is my Cavs rebrand that I did by creating a new logo and uniforms mixing present day Cavs with old school Cavs. First the Logo: The logo is based somewhat on the very first logo the Cavs used with the Cavalier by replacing that design with the new one made by someone else (credit for the Cavalier concept goes to him), and mixing it in with the current arched Cleveland and Cavaliers wordmark. The roundel pattern is based on the Austin Carr era stripe pattern and I chose to bring back. I also included the city of Cleveland's skyline (found on vector) and added it at the very bottom with a navy background to symbolize the city at night with Est.1970 to show the Cavs year they were established. At the end of the logo is a stripe pattern found on an old cavs sweatshirt that I have from the late 80's early 90's that surround the teams "V hoop" logo and included the teams All for One One For All slogan. Uniforms: All of the uniforms in the set are based off of the Navy blue alternates worn by the Cavs from 2006-2010 but in current wine and gold. Also to note I saw a similar design so I was inspired to give it some tweaks and I think they turned out great. So here they are below. (I used the NBA 2K16 myTeam creator to make the uniforms so sorry for the poor quality, took the pics off of my tv.) So what do you guys think?
  19. Originally when the new Browns jerseys were released in April, I thought it was a nice, clean, modern update with a few snags. After seeing them on the field last night, I hate almost everything about them, besides the helmet. I don't like how far the stripe extends, the number font and colors are terrible, and the pants look awful. Enter, my fix: HOME: AWAY: ALTERNATE: Starting with the helmet, I kept it the same. The jerseys are a much bigger change, however. The stripe cuts off at the shoulder cap, with the stripe colors being flipped on all white applications. The number font changes to an outlined standard block with a drop shadow. The colors were flipped on the brown and white jerseys. I reduced the size of "CLEVELAND" on the front of the jerseys, and the color changes from white to brown on the orange jersey, and from brown to orange on the white jersey. The pants feature a full stripe, and not the garbage that we were given with "BROWNS" down the side. The socks become the color of the jersey being worn, with the corresponding stripe. This leads us to one helmet, three jerseys, two pants and three socks. I debated making orange the primary home jersey, but decided against it. Throw all your C&C this way, please. Thanks!
  20. It is being reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers will add up to 4 new uniforms for the 2015-2016 NBA Season: SOURCE: http://www.cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf/2015/05/cavaliers_uniforms_changes_inc.html#incart_river
  21. Hey as we all know the Cavaliers are in the nba finals, and i cant help but noticed constantly that their primary logo font does not match what they use on their jersey. So i decided to change that and i wanted to know what you guys think of my rough edit of a new logo i made for them. INFO: the sabre is just a place holder. i kept it simple because sometimes i tend to make things look too busy and i want to get away from doing that. Design: a simple forward facing basketball with a "Cavaliers" word mark across the front with and enlarged "C" and "S" on either end. lastly, a sabre through the middle going across from right to left. C&C apreciated. thanks for looking
  22. After seeing the replies on v.2 of this concept, I made a few tweaks and eliminated the extra grey and blue jerseys and which cut the alternates to three alternate jerseys. Anyways I'll break down the changes to each. What do you think and feel free to comment your thoughts. Home Uniform: The home set from the first concept has remained unchanged and is heavily modeled infact a clone of the home uniforms worn from 1994-2001. Away Uniform: The away uniform is unchanged from v.2 concept except the hat went through a tweak by changing the block C from red to white with a red outline. Alternate 1: The alternate 1 uniform is left unchanged from the v.2 concept and is based off of the 1998-1999 alternate blue jersey. At home it is paired with the primary home cap with Chief Wahoo on it, on the road it is paired with the all navy Chief Wahoo cap. Alternate 2: The alternate 2 uniform is red as a homage to the 97 AL All-Star jerseys but the Indians script is changed to Cleveland in white lettering with a blue trim. At home the uniform is paired with an all red cap with a white block C with navy trim. On the road the alternate is paired with the primary road cap. Alternate 3: The alternate 3 uniform is the Saturday/Sunday afternoon home alternate and is almost the same as the current weekend uniform except the navy piping is added with Indians script being changed from red with navy trim to navy with red trim paired with matching pants with red socks, belt, and cleats. BP Home: The BP home is left unchanged except on the cap the block C is navy with white trim. BP Away: The BP away is also left unchanged except the cap is navy with a white front with a red block C trimmed in navy similar to the 2014 All-Star game cap worn by Michael Brantley. Again tell me what you think and I hope you guys like them. Regardless this is an improvement over the current set. Here is v.2 concept if you want to see the changes. http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/103616-updating-the-cleveland-indians-uniforms-v2/#entry2442272
