  1. Introduction and First Concept Recently I've gotten back into design, especially sports design, and I've been really trying to come up with some unusual or interesting team names, concepts, brands, etc. This is something I started to do and explore with NACA concepts (my mostly defunct? project. IDK I may continue or revamp it someday) but felt kind of limited by the University angle I put on myself. So, upon returning I decided not to tie myself to any constraints except to do something a little out of left field for each concept and brand. With all that being said, this thread may eventually turn into one where I dump a bunch of kind of 'wacky' sports concepts or it may just be a couple. Without further adieu I present the first concept; the Gulf Coast Mavericks. Explanation It's a lot I know, but the general idea is a team that subverts the name maverick, usually represented by a horse/ mustang, and instead refers to the Maverick of Top Gun fame and then riffing off that idea. Obviously, the character isn't supposed to directly reference Tom Cruise as Maverick but instead a sort of amalgam of 80s action heros and 'cool guys'. My initial idea was to place the team in the Florida panhandle near Tallahassee or Pensacola as there is a relatively large airbase near there that I forget the name of and this acts as another tie in to the Top Gun sort of aesthetic. I think this also fits in nicely with the color scheme which could also be interpreted as a sunrise or set which works very well for a Florida based team. I'm currently working on jersey sets to go with this brand, and while I feel I'm mostly finished I think I'm gonna work on them a bit more before posting them. Also I might chop and change the way in which this stuff is presented because I know one long scroll of images isn't particularly interesting. In the meantime I'd love to hear any criticisms and/or general feedback you guys have for these designs and the brand as a whole. I know gradients can be a little overpowering but I think it works for the whole faux 80s/ 'over-the-top' aesthetic! Ultimately these concepts are meant to be fun and light and explore some more relatively unexplored ideas in the sports world.
  2. I've been posting my NFL concepts for a few months, but I've been doing them just one at a time. I've gotten some nice feedback (thanks) but a single concepts they do seem to disappear rather quickly. I've decided to gather them altogether, along with a few new ones (like the following Cowboy concept), which seems to be the preferred way most of us do this. As always, let me know what you think. Starting with the NFC East, http://i419.photobucket.com/albums/pp274/wingdog2000/cow1_zps2e2f6c22.png http://i419.photobucket.com/albums/pp274/wingdog2000/redskn2_zpsc1e3bf33.png
  3. This is the latest iteration of a project that I've been working on for quite some time. I've never completely finished it, for one reason or another. Anyway, this is my vision of what the league could look like if it was Nike that had the exclusive contract with the league rather than Reebok followed by Adidas. The jersey template is based on pre-2014 Nike designs, so no flywire collars. Those look stupid. Following the real-life example of Nike and the NBA, every team will have four jerseys. However, they won't follow the same pattern as the NBA, i.e., teams can wear whichever jerseys they want whenever they want. The Nike NHL teams have one dark home jersey, one light road jersey, one dark alternate jersey and one light alternate jersey. Teams still wear dark colors at home and light colors on the road. Anyway, on with the show.

  4. *Update* This is an old thread I made a few years ago, dedicated strictly to Big Ten uniforms. I've decided to re-purpose it into a general thread for all my college football concepts. The first few pages will be just the older B10 uniforms, then I'll combine in a few other older non-B10 stuff, and going forward it will be what ever college concepts I come up with. IMO the current multi-uniform craze that's been strangling college football for the past 7 or 8 years now, has reached a point of maximum stupidity. At one time, you could argue that it was cool to be one of the teams that pulled off some unexpected out-of-the-box alternate look (I'd probably argue that it was never all that cool, but you could argue it was)... but now? When 4th tier nobody teams hit the field in chrome/matte/charcoal/pattered silliness "Jumped the Shark" doesn't even begin to cover it. With that in mind, I'm remaking the 14 teams of Big Ten, each in a solid signature look. Each team gets just one home jersey, one road jersey, one helmet, one pair of shoes, one pair of socks, and a maximum of two pairs of pants. IMO if the elements are most clearly what each team should be wearing nothing else is needed. I also wanted to put each team into a Nike template, the idea being that, if the conference was united in this "one best look" concept, they should also be united in a single template. With that... here we go!
  5. Now that I've finished my NFL series, I thought I'd take on something new: NCAA Division 1 football. I'll be working my way through the Power 5 conferences, with some future members/current Group of Fives thrown in the mix. Hoping to do 1-2 sets per week. In no particular order: ACC Boston College | Clemson v2.0 | Duke | Florida State | Georgia Tech | Louisville | Miami | North Carolina | NC State | Pittsburgh | Syracuse | Virginia | Virginia Tech | Wake Forest Big Ten Illinois | Indiana | Iowa | Maryland v2.0 | Michigan | Michigan State v2.0 | Minnesota | Nebraska | Northwestern v2.0 | Ohio State v2.0 | Penn State v2.0| Purdue | Rutgers | Wisconsin v2.0 Big 12 Baylor | Iowa State | Kansas | Kansas State | Oklahoma | Oklahoma State | TCU | Texas | Texas Tech | West Virginia * Future: | BYU | Cincinnati | Houston | UCF | Pac-12 Arizona | Arizona State v2.0 | California | Colorado | Oregon | Oregon State | Stanford | UCLA | USC | Utah | Washington | Washington State SEC Alabama | Arkansas | Auburn | Florida v2.0 | Georgia v2.0 v2.5 | Kentucky v2.0 | LSU | Ole Miss | Mississippi State | Missouri v2.0 | South Carolina | Tennessee | Texas A&M | Vanderbilt Independents/Group of Five Schools Air Force | Army v1.5 | Navy | Notre Dame | UCF Comments/feedback welcome!
  6. Hey ya'll, So I started this project back in the spring (when quarantine hit), not intending for this to be anything serious. This was just something fun do from home while everything was locked down. But over the course of this year, I've been steadily knocking out 2-3 sets per week in my free time... And lo and behold, I've finally gotten through all 32 teams! Disclaimer: I'm by no means a "pro user"; I drew all these up using MS Paint, so obviously the level of detail isn't nearly what it could be. I'm just comfortable with Paint and it's good enough to get the job done. A couple notes: I drew these sets up assuming there were no limiting factors (i.e. " the one helmet rule") that would affect uniform design. Teams can have as many different helmet/uniform combos as they want. Every team will have at least 4 different uniform combinations: a Home set, a Road set, an Alternate set, and a Throwback set. Some will have more, some will have less. I also won't show every possible combination, just some of the ones that look best together. I didn't just change things for the sake of changing them; if a team already has a good design, then I most likely didn't make any major changes. With that said, I'll start things out in the AFC East and work my way west. Comments/feedback welcome!

  7. Here’s how I would redesign the uniforms for the National Football League’s American Football Conference’s Eastern Division’s New England Patriots (with additional logos to beef up this post): I made two variations of the uniforms because I wasn’t sure whether to go with navy blue or royal blue as the primary color, that’s why I present both. These uniforms are what I’d call the Navy Set because it uses navy blue as the primary color: I also made this set for those who want a brighter blue. These uniforms are what I’d call the Royal Set as it uses royal blue as the primary color: In addition to the current Flying Elvis logo (which is navy blue), I have also made variations of a royal blue Flying Elvis logo reminiscent of their 1990’s logo: Silver Face: Light Tan Face (Basically a Flying Elvis version of the Pat Patriot logo): I also made variations of their Pat Patriot logo which used navy blue instead of the regular blue: Light Tan Face: Silver Face (Making the Pat Patriot logo look live the Flying Elvis): As for the wordmark logos, we have already seen for the modern wordmark logos navy blue and white, but here are additional ones that could be used (especially if royal blue is chosen over navy blue): Royal Blue Modern Wordmark: Red Modern Wordmark (could work either with navy or royal): In addition to the modern wordmark logos, if the people prefer, I have also redone(-ish) the 1980’s wordmark logo to better represent the new look Patriots (I apologize if I made the logos look rough but it should give a general idea of what I believe they could look like): Primary Navy Blue Classic Wordmark: Secondary Navy Blue Classic Wordmark: Primary Royal Blue Classic Wordmark: Secondary Royal Blue Classic Wordmark: Let me know which of the two color sets you prefer. Do you prefer the Navy Set or the Royal Set? Let me know in the replies!
  8. North American Collegiate Athletics (NACA) Hockey Concepts In this thread I will be adding my concepts for (made up) colleges and their hockey teams. This is going to be a long project I imagine and so far I only have a couple teams complete but I plan on making somewhere between 20-50 (maybe more?) teams across North America (not just the US) which will populate multiple 'conferences' or divisions. I also plan on making peripheral graphics for league logos, etc. My main goal for all these teams is to create a unique brand based around non-traditional mascots/ team names and color schemes!

  9. Hi there, I am a college student with a vision of an NBA without generic or ugly uniforms. I want each team to have an identity and a strong brand that defines them. Each team will be equipped with five uniforms. Each team will have: 1. Association-HOME.standard white jersey. Nike logo. 2. Icon-AWAY.team's primary, iconic color. Nike logo. 3. Statement-ALTERNATE. team's secondary color. Jumpman logo. Alternate jersey. 4. Community-ALTERNATE. basically an experimental jersey that fills the role of the city jersey. Nike logo. Alternate that can be worn either home or away. This uni will always feature the location name. In my vision, community jerseys are reserved for weekend games to sort of differentiate them and make them special. 5. Legacy-PLAYOFF EARNED ALTERNATE. Every team that makes playoff qualifies for these unis. Embroidered chrome nike logo. This uni will always feature the team's name. _________________________________________ COMPLETED SET Atlanta Hawks Boston Celtics Brooklyn Nets Charlotte Hornets Chicago Bulls Cleveland Cavaliers Dallas Mavericks Denver Nuggets Detroit Pistons Golden State Warriors Houston Rockets _________________________________________ OLD: Completed Sets on Old Templates [Outdated]: Phoenix Suns UPDATE: Phoenix Suns V2 UPDATE: Phoenix Suns V3 Golden State Warriors UPDATE: Golden State Warriors V2 UPDATE: Golden State Warriors V3 Toronto Raptors UPDATE: Toronto Raptors V2 UPDATE: Toronto Raptors V3 UPDATE: Toronto Raptors V3 Houston Rockets UPDATE: Houston Rockets V2 Atlanta Hawks UPDATE: Atlanta Hawks V2 New York Knicks UPDATE: New York Knicks V2 UPDATE: New York Knicks V3 UPDATE: New York Knicks V4 Oklahoma City Thunder UPDATE: Oklahoma City Thunder V2 UPDATE: Oklahoma City Thunder V2 Philadelphia 76ers UPDATE: Philadelphia 76ers V2 UPDATE: Philadelphia 76ers V2 Los Angeles Lakers UPDATE: Los Angeles Lakers V2 UPDATE: Los Angeles Lakers V3 Los Angeles Clippers UPDATE: Los Angeles Clippers V2 UPDATE: Los Angeles Clippers V3 Orlando Magic UPDATE: Orlando Magic V2 UPDATE: Orlando Magic V3 Miami Heat UPDATE: Miami Heat V2 UPDATE: Miami Heat V3 UPDATE: Miami Heat V2 New Orleans Pelicans UPDATE: New Orleans Pelicans V2 Washington Wizards UPDATE: Washington Wizards V2 UPDATE: Washington Wizards V3 Brooklyn Nets UPDATE: Brooklyn Nets V2 UPDATE: Brooklyn Nets V3 Dallas Mavericks UPDATE: Dallas Mavericks V2 UPDATE: Dallas Mavericks V3 Minnesota Timberwolves UPDATE: Minnesota Timberwolves V2 UPDATE: Minnesota Timberwolves V3 Portland Trail Blazers UPDATE: Portland Trail Blazers V2 Boston Celtics UPDATE: Boston Celtics V2 Cleveland Cavaliers UPDATE:Cleveland Cavaliers V2 Detroit Pistons UPDATE: Detroit Pistons V2 Memphis Grizzlies Charlotte Hornets Update: Charlotte Hornets V2 San Antonio Spurs UPDATE: San Antonio Spurs V2 Utah Jazz UPDATE: Utah Jazz V2 Chicago Bulls Sacramento Kings UPDATE: Sacramento Kings V2 Indiana Pacers Milwaukee Bucks
  10. Following the Super Bowl, a blend of work-from-home malaise and a regular loop of Full Color Football and other old NFL Films compilations on YouTube got me thinking about an intriguing idea. AFL fan and historian Ange Coniglio suggested the following: what if instead of the AFL being absorbed into the NFL in the 1970 merger the two leagues had unified on an equal, but separate footing to form something akin to Major League Baseball? And thus the idea for Major League Football was born. This basically just gave me the excuse to take a stab at football uniforms for the first time in a retro context. So this series will include all NFL teams with following loose guidelines (don't apply too much logic to these): All 32 NFL teams will be represented with their current geographic location and franchise name, except for Washington which will get an original name and look. There is no AFC or NFC. The original AFL and NFL league names are retained. The Steelers, Colts and Ravens (by virtue of being the original Browns) remain in the NFL with the other original 13 teams. Any expansion teams post 1970 join the original AFL teams (I know, this would leave the AFL at an imbalance with the NFL until 2002 - this is just a thought experiment). All uniforms are rendered in a 1960's era aesthetic for consistency, simplicity and to actually provide some sleeve space to work with. I won't claim every design is overhauled from scratch. There are some uniforms that are too iconic to not replicate. Others are a blend of colors and elements from different eras of a franchise. For some teams it's simply me representing their "best of" visual identity. Some are fauxback designs for franchises that never existed in the 60's. At the very least, I tried to add one unique element to each set, even if it's only an alternate logo. So without further ado, here's the Major League Football series... AFL NFL East - Patriots - Giants - Panthers - Cowboys - Dolphins - Eagles - Jets - Steelers North - Broncos - Lions - Bengals - Vikings - Browns - Bears - Bills - Packers Game Officials South - Buccaneers - Admirals - Jaguars - Ravens - Texans - Falcons - Titans - Colts West - Chiefs - Cardinals - Raiders - Saints - Seahawks - Rams - Chargers - 49ers

  12. I haven't done a basketball concept in years. It's possible the last time I did, it was hand drawn. Anyway, saw a template I thought I could work with a decided to give it a go. First, and probably a little too obvious, the Los Angeles Lakers...
  13. http://ninetynineyards.com/2019/01/25/the-history-of-pro-football-in-san-antonio/ I was doing a random search for San Antonio Texans CFL pics and ran into this! It's a UK/NFL fan page. It's an updated San Antonio Riders mockup I did here on the site and my Behance page. It's over two years old and I'm actually flattered they used it. Not really sure if anyone else has had their concept art used in place of an actual uniform being discussed. https://www.behance.net/gallery/65693263/World-League-2020
  14. So we've all seen the leaks of the Bengals black and orange jerseys. Based on those leaks, I thought I'd take a guess on what the rest of the uniform will be. Since they keep emphasizing the terms clean and simple, and those were the same terms that got thrown around a few years back in the Jaguars redesign, I'm guessing the Bengals will go a similar route. The lack of the "B" logo anywhere on the jersey, as well as the teams insistence that the B is still their primary logo leads me to guess that it'll be on the hip of the pants. Stripe-less pants are definitely a current Nike signature, as well as three pants options. Also, although I'm not a fan, the solid color sock is where teams seem to be going. So based on all that, this is my guess. As always, I have zero inside knowledge, and zero psychic abilities, so it's only a guess.
  15. Greetings! I've decided to put forth a new logo series for my hypothetical league, the Arena Ultimate Association. Here's the imagined scenario: It's mid-2021, and arena operators and owners anticipating people in mass returning to sporting events are in need of new product, given the fall of various minor league teams/leagues the past year or so. Rather than invest in things which have had struggles like indoor football, they decide to capitalize on of the world's fastest growing sports, Ultimate Disc. While traditionally played outdoors, AUA staff have adapted the game to fit into a hockey rink-sized field. The game will be recognizable and work to maintain the unique inclusiveness and spirit of the game, while offering twists to take advantage of the new venue. It'd be starting off in Early 2022 with 8 teams, and maybe expanding if this turns out to be a hit on the forum. I'll share more details about the rules and teams later, but here's a look at the league logos and wordmarks. I hope you all enjoy! I do have some basic rules ready to go that I'll share also. This will be the basic template for league infographics moving forward.
  16. After I posted last week about the St. Louis Browns and their design overhaul in the late 1930's, this was the inevitable outcome. It all started by trying to recreate the diamond "B" design in that 1937 photo. That gradually turned into what the team would have looked like if they had stayed in St. Louis a little longer. I wanted to stick with a more traditional feel, so the early 60's made sense. After the diamond badge was done, I settled on the wordmark. The font gives it a sort of light-hearted feel without the impish elf. The dramatic drop shadow is meant to evoke the Browns' look from the early 40's (and in my humble opinion the best colored headspoon of all time). Some teams use birds on a bat. Others have white cleats. In my mind, that multi-colored button placket is the franchise's signature element. It made sense to me it would be retained to some degree through the generations. The monogram on the chest of the road jersey is a subtle shout-out to my hometown Giants' road jerseys of the 80's. And then there's the hats. The home version is a nod to the team's caps of the late 30's with the seam piping. The road cap is a more direct connection to one of the team's final caps before they flew to Baltimore. All in all, some modernized touches to the Browns' identity. As always, comments and critiques are appreciated. Thanks for taking a glance. Browns References
  17. I've always had an odd fascination with the old St. Louis Browns. Partially because of their historic ineptitude on the field, but mostly due to the intriguing lack of a strong visual identity. Much like their NFL counterparts, the team primarily relied on text-based logos and monograms throughout most of their history. Recently, I was browsing the book, St. Louis Browns: The Story of a Beloved Team, and came across the image below. The caption says it's from 1937 when new Browns owner Donald Barnes launched a campaign that included fan submissions to find a new logo for the team. They'd eventually settle on a pretty nice looking shield. But all the various options presented are pretty astounding, especially for that era. There's plenty of elfin options, perhaps foreshadowing the only real graphical caricature the team would officially adopt in their final years before packing up for Baltimore. Others that suggest a completely different team identity like the anchor and rope mark just above Bill DeWitt's head (man on the left), silhouette of two bears(?) on top of a ball, a griffin(?), a bulldog and something with a "Brown-Eagles" crest. Most bizarre of the bunch by far has to be the disembodied bulging arm wielding a bat. A few more options feature generalized baseball imagery. Swinging batters, balls and bats feature prominently. Personally, my favorites are the stylized "B" inside the diamond behind DeWitt, the scrawling "Brownies" wordmark between the two men and the art deco style wordmark on top of the bat in the dead center. Even the "Browns" inside the circle around the swinging batter isn't bad. It has a sort of baseball equivalence to the Cleveland Browns plain football helmet logo. Anyways, thought this was an especially interesting behind the scenes look at the design process for an underwhelming 1930's baseball team. Would a more "exciting" logo have kept the team from moving to Baltimore? No way. But it's fun to think what could have been.
  18. Vintage Variants is a concept series not unlike the Adidas Reverse Retro series for the NHL, but I'm not doing just flipped colors. I wanted to take looks from the past and do all kinds of variations with them. Some will be color variations, some will pull in different design elements, some will be inspired by local themes, etc. I will update this post as I release each team, going alphabetically by city/region. These designs are done on the VaporFlex Jersey Template I created for UniMockups. Arizona Cardinals This one goes back to the jersey worn by Larry Fitzgerald early in his career and pulls in the colors of the desert cardinal, a bird more common in Arizona than the red Northern Cardinal. Atlanta Falcons This one taps on a jersey worn by Deion Sanders and is essentially a Reverse Retro with a grey/silver base. Really love that old bird logo and this would be a great opportunity to bring back the red helmet. Baltimore Ravens This one hearkens back to the Ray Lewis era in a golden color with white removed from the number trim and left only in the coat of arms (white border also removed there). This would pair well with a purple helmet. Buffalo Bills This one kicks it back to the 1964 look but in a cream color, with elements added from the Buffalo city flag. Before you get mad and say it looks like the Chargers - relax, it's just a concept. Carolina Panthers This one is a spin on what's really the only uniform they've ever had. Blue numbers are in, using the original proposed shade (thanks to trucolor.net). I gave the shoulder stripes a tweak, adding blue cuffs with a blue helmet. Chicago Bears This one is a blue version of their 1936 jersey with a modified helmet. The white version was extremely popular, so I wanted to see the blue and did more accurate shoulder striping. Cincinnati Bengals This one is an orange version of their classic from the Boomer Esiason days with white tiger markings on the shoulders. Had to move the markings up a tad to fit today's jersey cut, but I like how it flows. Cleveland Browns This one is a variant of their 1946 jersey with a darker seal brown and vintage silver (h/t TruColor.net) with less orange. The helmet is also silver, not, white.
  19. I've made no secret of my distaste for the Brewers' new logo and uniforms. I'm hoping that the club will do with their 50th Anniversary set what they did for their 25th Anniversary set, which is make some tweaks after a couple years. With that in mind, I worked up some tweaks to the current set, and would be glad for your feedback. Nothing here is more radical than that 28th Anniversary makeover (with one notable exception we'll get to later), so I could see something like this actually happening. Template is courtesy of @rsaline, with my gratitude. The basic ground rules I set for myself: only minor changes to the typeface and logo(s). keep the color scheme. I really wanted to try and limit the scope to what the Brewers did in 1997. So, with all that said, here's the concept. The cap logo is consistent across all platforms, being a very slightly modified version of the classic logo. Certainly less modified than the current one that the owner let his kid trash. HOME UNIFORMS: I kept cream as the primary home, and pinstripes on white as an alternate. I don't think the Brewers are on a schedule anymore, but I liked the "On Fridays We Wear Pinstripes" campaign. The cream uniform eliminates the thick 70s sleeve striping in favor of taking the current pants stripes and applying it consistently to the jersey. This also ties in with the striping pattern on the current road uniforms. The sleeve patch is @ren69's gorgeous update of the Brewers' 1940s Barrelman logo. I think it works a little better as a sleeve patch than the swinging Barrelman, being more square and with fewer thin appendages. The pinstripes are clean and classic. The cap logo is repeated on the sleeves as an homage to the alternate uniform worn from 2006 through last season; the Brewers have never worn pinstripes with any other logo, so it certainly seems to fit. ROAD UNIFORMS: Again, I conformed the stripes on the road jersey. It really bothers me that none of the current jerseys have the same striping. The sleeve patch is carried over from the home creams, to create another consistent element in the two primary sets. I did consider re-coloring his uniform to gray, but decided to keep him in the home uniform. The road alternate is near-perfect (so long as I'm keeping the current scripts). All I did was swap out the sleeve patch for the Barrelman batting. And here's where we get creative. HOME/ROAD ALTERNATE: Although powder blue is overused in MLB right now, the Brewers certainly have a claim to it (even originating the #PowerBlue hashtag a couple seasons ago). This jersey could be worn on the road or at home, and incorporates the classic Milwaukee wordmark with the People's Flag of Milwaukee, symbol of the city. Well, whadd'ya think?
  20. I'm a big fan of vintage logos so I decided to try my hand at updating the Texas Longhorns logo. C & C is always welcomed! *EDIT* Here's an index of all the updated logos done as of 2/16/2015 in this thread courtesy of Doyle524 & davidmiller5. Thank you! http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/95922-updating-vintage-logos/?p=2209439
  21. Hey all, Long-time lurker of the site and forums, first-time poster. Like a lot of people the shelter-in-place has led to much more hobby time than I ever could have imagined. So I tried my hand at designing a uniform for a fictional team in my hometown. It quickly evolved into a full eight-team league. I'm definitely no artist and cobbled together a few designs off a reworked jersey template I found through Google Search, a hat template from @Htown1141 and a pant & stirrup template of my own design. The designs themselves were inspired by what I've been watching during the quarantine including a ton of old World Series films on YouTube, a lot of When It Was a Game/Flagstaff Films clips and "The Natural." So we have a Single-A minor league set in 1939 in the Bay Area known as the Coastal Fog League. The league logo is below and not a masterpiece by any means, but meant to evoke the blend of California's sunny climate and the infamous fog that likes to roll in on summer evenings around San Francisco Bay. San Bruno Seals - San Francisco's team reappears in the suburbs First team up is the genesis for all this, from my hometown. Inspired by the legendary San Francisco Seals, we'll suspend belief and pretend that the Pacific Coast League version lost the war for fans to the Mission Reds, hence the name being available for a Single-A team. The chest logo mimics the classic mark from the real Seals of the Joe DiMaggio era, which in turn borrowed from the White Sox of the 1910-20's. I went for a basic, but different color scheme of green and white simply because green is my favorite color. I've always had a fondness for teams of the 20's and 30's that had logoless white home or gray road caps with piping, so that was a must and an element that'll come back again. This road cap was inspired by the real Seals logo cap from ~1939 with a slightly different take on the logo. Another detail from that era was a solid-colored button placket. Had to include that sharp looking (but dubious) Baseball Centennial patch. The other patch is a nod to the actual San Bruno city seal and plays off the various city-related patches of this era. This simple Boston anniversary design came to mind. And I wanted to do a set with white road stirrups. I'm not fully sure it works, but it has a vaguely White Sox feel to it. Comments and critiques are definitely welcome for someone dipping into this for the first time. Seals References
  22. So in case you haven't seen it in the College Football 2020 thread, Kellen Mond seems to be hinting that the Aggies will be moving back to their throwbacks as the primary look. Compounding that with the debate on whether the Aggies should keep or dump the bevel, I thought I'd take a stab at some concepts, as well as needing a mental break from my 1972 Project. While I'm not against the possible changes, it does seem a step down from what they're currently wearing with the racing stripes. Rather than flood that thread with some ideas, I'll take my talents here and see what you all think: This was in essence what I put in the 2020 thread, albeit on a Nike template, so I migrated it to an almost current Adidas template. The bevels are all gone, everywhere which will be the case on anything posted here. This one sees the helmet gain a helmet stripe to match the pants and satiate those that say there's no cohesion between helmet, jerseys and pants. Otherwise, everything really stays the same. This one sees the opposite direction as Option A, with the pant stripes going away, keeping the hip logo, but the stripeless pants now create harmony between them and the helmets. Jerseys remain unchanged. As was pointed out to me in the 2020 thread, Texas A&M's look is inspired by the 70's look, but they didn't go all the way with it. This is the "they went all the way with it" option, with everything having a double stripe on it. Let me know what y'all think, what you guy's might wanna see out of this. I hadn't thought of alternates for these, but they're probably coming as well, so as I always seem to say: C&C welcome!
  23. I've never posted a hockey concept before. I just recently got a template together, so I thought I'd try it out. I had a lot of fun making it. Thoughts?
  24. Felt a bit creative tonight and mocked up a concept for the Carolina Panthers. The White pants are the primary for the Home Black and Alt Blue uniforms, with Black as the alternate. Black pants are the primary for the Away uniform, with all-White as an option. I imagine that the Blue uniforms would be the default Home look in the early season unless playing at night. The Anthracite CR uniform is meant to be the 'Panther Pride' look. Template by Oldschoolvikings, hopefully you are okay with my using it, if not, please let me know!
  25. I was brousing the net while working@home during this COVID 19 crazyness. And I saw a drawing of what the fleld for the new LA Rams field might look like. So I drew it up. Let me know what yout think!
