  1. Hi. I'm here to fix the NFL's uniforms. Nike has taken over and left us with some bad designs, and theres a few nagging things out there that have just held on, simply because people never bothered to fix them. I'm here to tweak (Maybe overhaul) the NFL's uniforms. Rules I gave myself for this: - One helmet shell, but facemasks and decals can change - Not changing any logos or colors, just uniforms - Color Rush is not mandatory, some teams will have them, some teams won't. - Ignoring the 3 year helmet, 5 year jersey change rule - Not really going in any order, might not even do all 32 - Colors were taken from the logos themselves or from teamcolorcodes.com (yes the colts are still royal blue I just used their digital color) - Yes they were done in Paint so they're not the *cleanest* but I did my best. - Assume mixing and matching is allowed, I won't show *all* combinations but can show one if requested - Moving Nike patch to chest across all teams I'll start off with 2, since my first (Colts) is very simple. Biggest changes are White Mask, number font, and stripe consistency. Next up, the LA Chargers. It's obvious they're getting new uniforms. Went bold on the Whites, Navy is the Color Rush alternate. Kept the Agency-esque font Any comments and criticism is welcomed!
  2. So I whipped up a quick and dirty fix for the Rams LA logo. I don’t actually dislike the overall concept of the logo, but I think the execution of the idea is terrible. The problems: -Gradients-yuck, have fun reproducing that for embroidery and screen printing -Shadows-early 2000s web design wants their crutch back and it *the first two problems also create the problem of having waaay too many colors. -Doesn’t look good on multiple backgrounds/requires too many color and outline changes -The segmentation of the horn creates a crescent moon shape that I can’t unsee now that it’s been pointed out to me. The solution: first off, I ditched the gradients, getting the logo down to two/three colors depending on the application I also got made the horn one continuous piece. Also, because I ditched the gradients, the logo is all one color with a shadow on the horn to give it some depth. Honestly, I could take it leave the shading on the horn, but it might be a little flat without it. Anyway, this was like a 10 minute fix, but I think it makes the logo fit in much more with its contemporaries in the NFL and professional sports as a whole.
  3. Hi guys! I dont know where to start to be honest so I will keep it short. First of I must tell you that my concepts would not be possible without @Hoopladawg87! He has given me much thought and guidance throughout the creative processes which resulted into this. I can't thank you enough, Hoopla One thing you guys will probably notice that my template is basically a cheap copy of his, which it really is, and imitation is the sincerest form of flattery after all! So with my limited skills and an eye to detail severely lacking, I tried to make my template like his with the hopes that it would give the concepts a heightened sense of realism. As this is my first post on this great forum it felt only natural to present my favourite team, arguably the greatest team in the NBA - the Boston Celtics. The Boston Celtics home and away uniforms, now named association and icon, are timeless. Clean, classic and one of the most recognizable in sports. Ever since I saw the St. Patricks uniform I could never shake the feeling that gold is such a beautiful complementary colour to the kelly green and white. I made several renditions but I felt the gold trim was too much, too invasive and bordering on sacrilege. The route, or solution, was to change the Nike logo and players name on the back to gold. A minor change, almost unrecognizable but I feel it is in tune with Nike's minimalistic direction. All comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated!

  4. As a native Minnesotan, I usually get a little disappointed or dismayed by the Twins concepts I see on the forum. Their identity always seems like a bit of an afterthought, often subject to a recolor so as to differentiate the Twins from a myriad of RWB teams in the league. Instead of taking this approach, I wanted to work (for the most part) with the existing color scheme whilst drawing from the team's history. With that in mind, I reintroduced light blue into the color scheme. While light blue was restricted to their road uniforms in an era when several teams were using it for their road uniforms, this historical precedence combined with the fact the state's name literally means "sky-tinted water" makes it a suitable vehicle for setting them apart from teams with similar colorways. This addition of light blue spells the end for Kasota gold. I didn't necessarily hate its addition a few years ago, but its application was unsuccessful and does not fit with the light blue. One of the more popular changes for posters is to correct the inconsistencies between the team's wordmarks. I decided to follow suit, but took a decidedly different approach. The result applies the Minnesota Wild script to the Twins, using a Tuscan-esque font that takes cues from the area's history as a railroad and flour milling hub. The TC logo follows suit, and I put an M back on the away cap. Here, it calls back to the successful minor league Minneapolis Millers. Lastly, Minnie and Paul are updated with the new colors and wordmark as well as altering the state outline to be more geographically accurate. It is promoted to the primary, replacing the squad's generic baseball roundel. Got all that? Good. Now look at it. Let me know what you think. I also have a decidedly modern take on the Twins that I will post sometime in the coming week. Take care.
  5. After delivering the nuke on the previous concepts, I took a break from doing art as it were but then the stuff I had wasn't up to scratch so using the modified templates from @edjb93 to which he got from the original templates of @LEWJ... I present my own personal takes on the NFL, unknown at the moment if I'm going with the expansion teams I did last time. Presenting the Home kit with two alternate pants, the Road kit with two alternate pants with the Alternative kit, the Throwback kit and borrowing the NBA's City Jerseys to create a special one game only Big City Set. THIS IS WHAT THREAD CONTAINS AS TO WHY IT EXISTS: The NFL had a strike season of 2021 because the NFLPA and the league couldn't come up with an agreement thus the Super Bowl wasn't played... everyone lost money and the scapegoat was Goddell, he was immediately fired after the confirmation of a strikeout season. The New England Patriots no longer had the immunity that they had from Goddell's biasness and were immediately found guilty via an independent commission of benefiting via a corrupt commissioner... the new owners banned the team from post-season for 10-15 years, forfeitures of first round draft picks and stripped them of their Super Bowls won in the Goddell era thus giving Seattle, Atlanta and the LA Rams the wins. Adidas and Under Armor challenged the exclusivity deal of NFL's deal with Nike and it went to the highest court in the land which ruled that it was an unfair competitive advantage and forced Nike to drop teams in order to not being fined in the billions... they kept some teams in return like the Rams and the Cowboys. Big City is what it's called and it's essentially done by the designers, kind of like what the NBA does.... and there are some bad, BAD ones.

  6. I rebranded the Colorado Rockies due to their current boring, branding. - Updated the color scheme to more vibrant purple. - New primary logo with mountain and Colorado "c." - Used the Denver Nuggets miner logo to create a secondary mascot logo for the Rockies. I slightly edited it and updated its aesthetic. - New wordmark using a script font. - All new jerseys.
  7. Hi all, With the conclusion of the 2019 NFL season, I thought now would be a cool time to do a fixer-upper series, fixing all 32 NFL brands and uniform sets, from small changes to complete re-brandings. I will be explaining each change I make for each set. No set will be left untouched, even the classics. I will be doing this series in reverse standings order because I feel like it. Without further ado, lets get the series started off with the Super Bowl Champs... Kansas City Chiefs: The biggest change comes in the logo, in which I removed the out-of-place black that has no place in the team's uniform set and replaced it with the team's much more poppy yellow. While I left the amazing and classic uniform mostly untouched (outside of the obvious logo change in the helmet), I did make a minor alteration that makes the uniform cleaner. Instead of the rather obtrusive Lamar Hunt/AFL patch that has been on the front of the Chiefs uniforms for about a decade now, I had the team move Mr. Hunt to the left sleeve, following the suit of the Bears, Lions, and (formerly) the Browns. I wanted the team to honor the owner, but in a more unobtrusive way, thus I feel the sleeve logo (shown) is a better way to clean up the uniform and keep Mr. Hunt's name on the uniform. San Francisco 49ers: The biggest change to the Niners set was the removal of black from the logo, which I felt was black for black's sake and, like the chiefs, is not featured on the uniforms. I feel it simplifies the primary. Additionally, I brought back an altered version of the team's old Art Deco-inspired shield secondary logo, with fixes to the spacing and the replacement of the football in the top right corner with the team's 5 rings. Uniform-wise, outside of the logo change on the helmet, I decided to throw part of the uniform back to the 90s with a gold drop shadow behind the numbers to further add gold to the iconic uniform without soiling it. Tennessee Titans: This is a set where I did not change much to the logos themselves, but the uniforms received drastic changes. The Titans' current set is one of the most disliked in the league, mostly due to its corniness and over-complexity. Thus, the first step in my uniform change was removing the atrocious "sword" shoulder design, keeping it color consistent instead. Next, I re-added the cool secondary logo to the sleeves after they were removed in 2018. The next step was to fix the numbers. I liked the idea, but the numbers looked far too awkward. Thus, I noticeably altered and strengthened the numbers to stand out more prominently and not look starved to death. Furthermore, I reintegrated red into the uniform by making it a secondary outline to the numbers on each uniform, fitting in with the designs of the two logos. Finally, the helmet remains navy, as I felt it fit the set best, but the face-mask is now the Titans/Oilers powder blue, while the stripe is a blend of the design of the modern stripe on the first Titans helmet and the old traditional stripe on the Oilers helmet. Green Bay Packers: This classic identity receives very minimal changes from me. However, I did brighten up the green for the Pack, making the uniforms and logo pop a bit more. Additionally, I added a white border around the logo on the helmet to better match the style of the primary logo and altered the color of the face-mask and added a stripe on the third uniform (helmet rules aside). The only major change was the addition of a new secondary logo, which is a refreshed and updated version of the team's original logo. CC is obviously welcome. Next up will be the Ravens, Texans, Seahawks, and Vikings!
  8. Intro. The year is 2004, and three Southern Ontario record labels hosting 6 local bands have combined to form a soccer league. Mantis Productions in Toronto, Mojo Records in Barrie and Tuesday Morning Records in Ottawa have all joined forces to create the Tuesday Morning Premier League. Concept. I'll be designing logos for each team and jersey (home, away and clash as well as goalkeepers kits for all 6 teams.) Sponsors will be either local or fictional brands tied into each band name, with backstory on each. Map. Teams. All of these teams are based on bands I either previously played in or have friends who played in. I've cleared the names with all band members. Windup Fox and (Norman Ross) Weichel are music projects that still exist. Team Locations. Bad Mojo (Orléans, Ontario) Panic Button FC (East London, Ontario) Slangdoll SC (Toronto) Stereoface SC (North London, Ontario) Weichel FC (Perry Sound, Ontario) Windup Fox FC (Ottawa, Ontario)
  9. The news of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers updating their absolutely terrible uniforms has gotten my creative juices flowing to create something new for the 2020 season. The Bucs have had two great color schemes in their history. Both the creamsicle/red and the pewter/red/orange color schemes were truly inspired and the original Jolly Roger logo is damn near perfect. There is a rich visual history to draw inspiration from for a new uniform and logo package. With the relative futility of the franchise for the last 20 years in the pewter and red, I thought it was time to move on to a third era of color for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The new color scheme features their trademark pewter, but the color has been tweaked to be less brown and more gray. It is paired with the current shade of creamsicle orange and a color I’m calling Bone White, an ever so slightly creamy white (I know @BucsBoy02 has a great concept here too that uses cream, but I swear the idea came up independently, not trying to piggyback on his ideas). The new logo takes a lot of inspiration from the skull and crossed-swords of the original Jolly Roger flag. I made some tweaks of my own to freshen it up a bit, but that logo is great, IMO and it doesn’t need a ton of work. The biggest change I made was removing the flag all together. I think the Skull and Crossed-Bones is great on its own as a primary logo. I also designed a custom word mark and numeral font with some design cues taken from a classic pirate cutlass. The uniforms are pretty straightforward. Orange and white never touch and the pants and sleeves feature a striping motif based on the swords from the logo. I wanted to keep the uniforms simple to let the bold colors speak for themselves without being interrupted by intricate striping patterns. It is difficult to communicate in a flat presentations such as this, but the helmet is intended to have a high gloss metallic finish. I also included both grey and orange socks to avoid the dreaded yoga pants situation where the pants match the top of the socks. Thanks for taking the time to have a logo and I’m looking forward to any and all feedback on the logo, colors and uniforms.
  10. For the 2020 MLB season, I decided to create some Nike MLB jersey concepts for Players' Weekend using the new Nike Baseball Jersey template. I wanted to create something unique with these jerseys. I used a lot of alternate colors and alternate logos on the jerseys, and made fauxbacks for some teams as well. If you are wondering why the Mets are black and pink, it is because when they were formed they were supposed to be black and pink. I'm not entirely happy with the Rockies, Rays, and Astros. For the Rockies I didn't really have any ideas for, while the Astros and Rays jerseys didn't come out as well as I thought they would. Thanks for viewing.
  11. I decided to do a Nike MLB Uniform Refresh, some teams will get total rebrands, some will have altered colors, some will have new alternates, or get new throwbacks. Visit my Behance to see my other sports designs: https://www.behance.net/ianrasovsky For the diamondbacks, I updated the home and away uniforms by replacing the sand accents with teal, solidifying teal as their new tertiary color. I also added their purple alternate from 1998 on the new Nike MLB teamplate. I also created a new home cap, that replaced the sand in the diamonbacks's "A" logo.
  12. Hello people, it's good to be back on this forum after couple of years. Recently I designed a logo for my hometown team who is competing in top tier of the Serbian basketball league. Since everything on the logo is in my language, I will explain you everything you need to know. The small letters means basketball club which is common thing to be written in most of our logos (we don't have team nicknames written in the logo). The main word TAMIŠ is the name of the river that goes through my hometown and as you can guess, the team name. Therefore, below the name is the basketball flowing on waves sort of. I have designed this 1 month ago and still can't figure out if I like it or not. I would appreciate every feedback, opinion, critics and comments. Please don't be discouraged to comment even if the logo is not from usual leagues
  13. The Minor Leagues of professional baseball are known for wacky and weird team names. This thesis study aims to explore the development process of creating such teams. The idea is to develop a series of logos from community created minor league baseball teams. These team names are developed by using a series of requirements like location followed by a mascot which can come from the name of animals, profession, nature, local landmarks, people, food, pronouns, or things in your garage. This servery will help you develop your own team. Only 6 teams will be selected so make it interesting. Bonus Points for team names that relate to the location (ex. New Orleans Baby Cakes) LINK FOR SURVEY: https://forms.gle/AdCVLTB9uEgn2bQw9
  14. So, after watching the game last night, it occurred to me that the Atlanta Falcons have some untapped potential with their identity, and could actually look really good. Any and all feedback welcome! Here's my fix starting with logo: Falcons Logo Concept by HuntTheJones (Based on the combination of the Throwback Logo & Current Logo) So the first is obvious. Take the old logo that's still so popular among the fanbase (at least the ones I know) and the current logo (which I think is actually pretty good) and combine them for a modernized version to make everyone happy. Up next, turf design: Falcons Turf Concept for Mercedes-Benz Stadium Last night made it clear that the throwback turf design is the look Atlanta needs. That said, there is nothing wrong with the current font style they have. So, sticking with the theme of the logo, find a happy medium. Up next, helmet design: Falcons Helmet Concept Nice and simple, just like the helmet they already have. A gloss black shell with nothing but the new logo on each side gets the job done. Up next, uniform design: Black Home Primary White Road Primary Red Home Alternate This is my favorite part. The basis is that each design is based on the throwback worn last night. Their current design is outdated, and nothing stands the test of time like the classic. So, put the current number font, new logo on the sleeves, and "ATLANTA" in small block on the chest. Keep the same pants design as well, just make the primary the old school silver. Rotate white and all black in the mix so you never get stale. Black jersey becomes primary Home, White jersey goes back to Black numbers, & Red jersey becomes alternate. C&C welcome!
  15. So whilst I was doing fun concepts in the main thread I was doing, I got an idea on how would non-NFL franchises cope if some of those faced each other... if I took the 32 team league ((possibly extend this to 64 if the idea works)) and split it into 8 of each of East, North, South and West then I wonder who would even take part.... in the other thread I got 8 concepts made and I didn't do any detail onto why they would exist... because they would be further explained here... so pretend the traditional NFL doesn't exist in this thread because in the US and Canada... I will be showing you who will face each other. Thanks to @mjrbaseball for this map as it is vastly detail and gives me a blueprint of where shall I put these teams down. East will be divided between Ontario/Quebec and as far as Northern Florida, North will be between Kansas/Nebraska and Ohio, South will consist of Texas to Southern Florida and West will have what's left of the states ((The line is split between Orlando with Jacksonville being in the East and Tampa Bay where Miami will be in the South.)) Now for the exceptions: The AAF won't be available as they are a recent league and I won't be doing the XFL either... too complicated and I don't fancy them to show up. No CFL teams... yeah no CFL sides so no Argos, no Tiger Cats, no BC and no Allouttes. So let's take a look at this map now as I insert the first team... Let's zoom in shall we? The first team of the Eastern Conference... HARTFORD WHALERS Now then... WHY DID I CHOOSE THE WHALERS AND NOT THE HURRICANES? Out of all the teams in the NHL, the Whalers have one of the best histories out there as well as a dedicated fanbase that love to see Pucky the Whale return someday. WHY IN THE EASTERN DIVISION? I wanted to create a classic Toronto/Quebec/Boston/New England NHL rivalry style that benefits these mostly east coast teams. IS THE RETRO KIT A REFERENCE TO NEW ENGLAND? Correct. ------- CC is always welcome, gotta know if I made the correct decision or not.
  16. Welcome to Ty & Titan’s Super Jersey Collection! In this thread, we’ll find out what every MLB team would look like if they kept ALL of their jerseys, and simply updated them. As a result, each team would have a plethora of uniforms to choose from for their 162 game schedules. I have a few rules for deciding which jersey to use/update. - Each team is limited to TWELVE (12) main rotation jerseys. Yes. Twelve. - Really old jerseys must be updated in some capacity. However, there are a few exceptions. - Jerseys that look too similar to a previous incarnation must be considered updates. Therefore, they cannot co-exist. - Teams can use jerseys from a previous iteration of their franchise, or from another franchise with the same name. For example, the current Milwaukee Brewers can use updated versions of the uniforms worn by the old Milwaukee Brewers that existed from 1894-1901, despite them being separate franchises. - New jerseys can also be added. Alright, with that out of the way….let’s get this started! Here’s a quick link to each team’s jersey collection: AL EAST Baltimore Orioles Boston Red Sox New York Yankees Tampa Bay Rays Toronto Blue Jays AL CENTRAL Chicago White Sox Cleveland Indians Detroit Tigers Kansas City Royals Minnesota Twins AL WEST Houston Astros Los Angeles Angels Oakland Athletics Seattle Mariners Texas Rangers NL EAST Atlanta Braves Miami Marlins New York Mets Philadelphia Phillies Washington Nationals NL CENTRAL Chicago Cubs Cincinnati Reds Milwaukee Brewers Pittsburgh Pirates St. Louis Cardinals NL WEST Arizona Diamondbacks Colorado Rockies Los Angeles Dodgers San Diego Padres San Francisco Giants
  17. Like most fans, I was really disappointed with the unveiling of the new orange Suns jersey. It just seemed like very little thought or effort went into the design, the orange looks off-color and the organization continues to be deaf to what the fans want. So, inspired by all the ruckus, I started pumping out designs I thought would be better. Here's a look: I started with what would be my take on the jersey they released. Not a design I would have done unless forced. I enlarged the burst and added a purple outline, then off-centered the numbers a bit. The trim is classic and gives it a pop that the real version lacks. Next I did what I think they should have done if truly trying to give a nod to the 7SOL era. My first completely original design came next. I actually don't love the circle in the center, but the concept itself feels strong and could be improved if I wanted to spend the time, but I came up with better. My next design is my favorite, so I did it in all colors to see what they'd look like. A nod to the 90s era without being too much like it. Something that would stand out in today's NBA and could be used for a long time without looking too dated. Next I did my update of the classic 90s burst jerseys, removing the ball and just retaining the burst trail lines. I gave it a more extreme angle to indicate more of a rise (the sun rises, a phoenix rises, etc.). The number is placed within the burst trail, rather than below. The font for the wordmark and number are the same, which was not the case with the 90s jerseys. Also, the font is an updated look, not the exact font from the original jerseys. I did many colorways for this design. I also did these mock-ups of a design from @KUNG_FU_KELLY_ on Twitter. I think these are awesome. He did a mock-up using MS Paint and I helped him bring it to life. I've always thought all the local teams should have one game each season where they wear the colors of another local team, so I thought I'd play with the concept. Would be cool to see this happen in lots of cities. Also took a stab at the old western style. Played with size, position and spacing of wordmark and numbers on these. Finally, here's some other ideas I played around with. The Haboob Edition: An orange version of the original (don't mind the quality of the graphic - I couldn't find a HQ version online and got tired of searching): Some City Edition ideas using the AZ state flag design: Using the concept of the sun as a cosmic entity, rather than the Arizona heat and/or sunset correlation: Would love to get feedback on these. I'm truly inspired by and fueled by fans who are loving these designs on Twitter/Instagram/Reddit. Many are tagging the Suns and Nike and telling them to hire me, LOL. I'm also working on designs for other teams and will do some NFL and MLB concepts, as well. Thanks for giving me a place to share and get feedback!
  18. Hi all, I decided to create a series based off the one I did for the NBA, in which I make alternate jerseys for the NHL that combine most (if not all) the team's brand history into one uniform. I thought this would be a cool way of acknowledging team histories while making unique alternate uniforms for each team (excluding Vegas, since they've only had one logo and uniform set, sorry Golden Knights fans...) I hope y'all enjoy and CC is welcome! Starting off with three: Mighty Ducks of Anaheim/Anaheim Ducks 1990s-Mid 2000s: Front logo Mid 2000s-early 2010s: Sleeve styling Early 2010s-present: Shoulder logos, colors Phoenix/Arizona Coyotes: 1990s-early 2000s: General jersey design early 2000s-early 2010s: Shoulder logo Early 2010s-present: Front logo, colors Boston Bruins: 1950s: Color, sleeve design 1960s-80s: Front logo coloring, shoulder design, neck coloring 2000s-present: Front logo design, shoulder logo Going in alphabetical order by city, so that'll be the order.
  19. 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.
  20. Hey new member here I'm a full time designer that puts together Portland Trail Blazers edits, concepts, and more in my spare time. I recently put together a uniform concept for the Blazers right before they were officially unveiled and thought I'd share the template I made with you all.

  21. Here are my NCAA D1 basketball court concepts using DarthBrooks template. Some of the courts might be boring/traditional and some might be considered a little extreme. I have been working on these on and off for over a year and have around half the teams done. I will be posting them in alphabetical order by conference (A-10 first, WCC last). Just because I made a concept for a team doesn't mean I don't like their current court. A few things you might notice... I am a fan of two-tone courts when used by the right team (I wouldn't have two-tones with traditional schools like Indiana, Duke, UCLA, etc.). The more unique logos the school has the more I tried to incorporate them into the court. Once in a while I might use a logo in a way it wasn't intended (ex. Marquette eagle logo used on court). Some of the conference logos might be a year or 2 out of date (A-10, ACC, Big 12). I didn't include websites, twitter handles, hashtags, etc. (except for one;TCU) on the out-of-bounds area. I probably only looked up 10% of the team's current court so some might be very similar to their current court on accident. Here are links to all the posts of the courts... A-10 (1st half below, 2nd half); ACC (1st half, 2nd half); America East (1st half, 2nd half); American (1st half, 2nd half); Atlantic Sun (1st half, 2nd half); B1G (1st half, 2nd half); Big 12 (1st half, 2nd half); Big East (1st half, 2nd half); Big Sky (1st half, 2nd half); Big South (1st half, 2nd half); Big West (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 1 (1st half, 2nd half, extra); CAA (1st half, 2nd half); C-USA (1st half, 2nd half); Horizon (1st half, 2nd half); Ivy League (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 2; MAAC (1st half, 2nd half); MAC (1st half, 2nd half); MEAC (1st half, 2nd half); Missouri Valley (1st half, 2nd half); Mt West (1st half, 2nd half); NEC (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 3 (1st half, 2nd half); Ohio Valley (1st half, 2nd half); PAC-12 (1st half, 2nd half); Patriot League (1st half, 2nd half); SEC (1st half, 2nd half); Southern (1st half, 2nd half); Southland (1st half, 2nd half); Summit League (1st half, 2nd half); Sun Belt (1st half, 2nd half); SWAC (1st half, 2nd half); WAC (1st half, 2nd half); UPDATES Round 4; WCC (1st half, 2nd half); Conference Tourney Courts (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4); UPDATES Round 5; A-10 (1st half) Davidson Wildcats Dayton Flyers Duquesne Dukes Fordham Rams George Mason Patriots George Washington Colonials LaSalle Explorers
  22. So I have been tinkering with several different options for the OKC Thunder this coming season. These are based off of the city & statement collections, as if they brought them into their regular rotation. Sorry for the crudeness of the drawing. Let me know what you all think.
  23. With Dallas and Nashville playing in the 2020 Winter Classic, I thought it was great that the NHL was allowing more "non-traditional" hockey markets Winter Classic games, so I started work on a Winter Classic logo for a game in Arizona. My 2022 Winter Classic logo is a simplified version of the National Park Service logo arrowhead which seemed appropriate considering where the game will be played. The background has been replaced with the sunbeams from the Arizona flag. The mountain has been replaced with Humphrey’s Peak, the highest point in Arizona, and the sequoia tree has been replaced with saguaro cacti in homage to the southwest. The “Winter” font is loosely based on the fonts used on National Parks signs, while the other text is based on signs found within national parks. I did a few other color combinations as well but I really think the red sky looks the best. For Arizona's jersey I decided to try something that hasn't been done before. I made a very simple crest but I moved it to the shoulder and helmet, allowing a very vintage collegiate look with the ARIZONA text on the chest with numbers. I also added the only good thing ever to come from the Buffalo "Buffaslug" days, and that is stitched numbers. For their opponent. I chose Vegas due to the developing rivalry in the desert. I had a problem with Vegas' logo though since it is so new, so I attempted a fauxback crest. I tried to make it look like their current logo could have evolved from this but if I am honest, I think it still needs some work. Do you guys think I am on the right track here? C+C are always appreciated

    The New XFL

    With the announcement of the new XFL, I thought it would be a fun exercise to design the league from the ground up. The intent of this project is to not only design team uniforms and nicknames but to design an overall structure for the league - everything from the design of the ball itself to the timing of the play clock. With that in mind, here are a few notes to start: Overall, my initial focus is on manufacturing a feel of establishment for the league. Make it feel like the teams belong and have staying power. Basically the opposite of the original XFL approach. This means fairly conservative uniform designs (unlike the original XFL), no ridiculous team names (unlike the original XFL), and no ridiculous in-game gimmicks. So definitely a departure there. There will, however, necessarily be aspects that set the XFL apart from the NFL. Speeding up the game (both on the field and the overall runtime) is paramount. We're trying to fit a full four quarters of football into as little time as reasonably possible. The main legislation that will help accomplish this is having a running clock until the final four minutes of each quarter. For the first 11 minutes of each quarter, the clock will only stop for timeouts, after scoring plays, for injuries, and after changes in possession. Other timing changes: We're shortening the play clock from 40 seconds (the NFL's play clock) to 20 seconds (the CFL's play clock). This will basically force all XFL teams to run the hurry up as their base offense. This means if you tune in to watch an XFL game you can bet that you're going to see fast-paced, college-style offense. In the last four minutes of each quarter, the game clock will still stop after an incomplete pass, but only until the ball is reset by the official. Basically, our incompletions in the last four minutes of a quarter will operate like the NFL's rule about running out of bounds. One of the ridiculous aspects of the original XFL that we'll actually keep around is a different design for the actual football to be used in games. Not this ridiculousness, though. Our new official XFL football will be bright red leather with white college stripes (see attached). I believe this change would make the ball pop off the screen but would also be conservative enough for fans to be able to take it seriously, unlike the original XFL ball. As far as city selection for our 8 expansion teams, I'm targeting cities that fit one of two descriptions: truly large cities that have no NFL affiliation (San Antonio, Austin, etc.) or college towns that have an established, mid-to-upper tier college football program. No Penn State's or Ohio State's - we're looking for stadiums that hold 40,000 to 60,000 people, not twice that. So far the two cities I've selected are San Antonio, Texas and Ft. Collins, Colorado. The new XFL will not have a kickoff after scoring plays. We're going with Greg Schiano's proposal. The new XFL will use the college football overtime rules. The new XFL will not have a PAT. Instead, we have BAT - the Bet After Touchdown. It's automatic that a team will get seven points when they score a touchdown, but they have the option to wager one of those seven points for a chance at an eighth point. If the team elects to attempt the BAT, they try to score in one play from the 10-yard line. A successful BAT results in a total of eight points for your drive. Go for the BAT and not make it? You end up with six total points for your TD drive. Every single play and/or ruling is eligible to be challenged and challenges are now handled entirely by a group of off-site "challenge officials" who watch the game and can call for a challenge as needed. They are instructed to prioritize the flow of the game over 100% accuracy of calls. Challenges will be enacted on plays of two types: egregious officiating errors or truly difficult to call real-time judgments. Otherwise, we're sticking to the "50 drunks in a bar" rule: if everyone agrees it looks like a catch in real time, we're not worried about what the slow-motion replay says. The original XFL actually had several significant innovations that the NFL ended up stealing. As commissioner of the new XFL, I will also insist that the league try out new and innovative ideas to show our fans football from a new perspective. For starters, every skill position player's helmet in the XFL will be equipped with a built-in camera like this one. Tiny camera technology has gotten so advanced from everything like resolution and optical image stabilization that this project has actually made me kind of mad that the NFL hasn't piloted something like this. Imagine if you could cut to a replay of a big play with footage like this.
  25. Inspired by many good concept threads on here, especially PascalHugo’s excellent Alternate Universe, I will try my hand at creating a football league concept from scratch but with a twist. My intent is to create a 16 team Football league consisting of defunct historic Belgian teams, trying to imagine how these clubs would look like in the modern age. Most of the logos and kits will be modern revamps of existing logos and designs. To start off, here’s the branding for this incarnation of the Belgian Pro League.
