  1. 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?
  2. Hello, it's my first time in a good while doing a logo series, but I thought I had some stuff worth sharing. This little series is based on the premise of the owners of the Milwaukee Bucks deciding to expand on their sports holdings and launch expansion teams in various other leagues. I have dubbed this hypothetical enterprise the Deer Sports Empire. Currently, aside from the Bucks they own the Wisconsin Herd. I will be leaving the logos for those teams as is, partially because I really like them and partially because the idea is the owners are launching new teams with similar branding touches (colors, font, etc). I also will not be touching MLB or giving them an NFL team as there's no world where those things would happen. These are the teams and leagues I plan to do so far. A couple are already done or close to finished. As suggestions (hopefully) are made and new ideas come to me I may add to this list. If anyone has a team in a league they would like to see, feel free to make suggestions. I dont have uniform templates for all the different sports so I'm just focusing on uniforms right now.

  3. Now that it would seem Padres fans were successful in their "Bring Back The Brown" campaign; might it be time for a similar fan-fronted movement for the Brewers regarding the uniforms most of their fans clearly want? How would one even go about starting such a campaign? I'm guessing a facebook group is a no-brainer. But I'm more interested in the nuances that made the San Diego fans' campaign so successful. At the very least, we can use this thread for discussions about the Brewers uniforms so as to not keep jacking other threads.
  4. My journey began about a year or two ago when sitting in my hunting blind. A neighbor walked onto my land. He was wearing a blaze orange jacket. That's when I got thinking. I imagined this football stadium packed to the brim of blaze orange jackets in the sunlight during a football game. I came up with the Milwaukee Blazers. I began to read up on the football history in Milwaukee. From Packer football at County Stadium to the third AFL's Milwaukee Chiefs and the NFL's Milwaukee Badgers. But one thing caught hold of me. In 1965,Marvin Fishman, the original owner of the Bucks, tried to obtain an expansion team from the AFL. But Vince Lombardi signed a lease to keep playing various Packer games at County Stadium until 1976. But what if Milwaukee had gotten an AFL team? I imagine they would have been called the Whitetails or something until the 80s or so when the state made blaze orange or some kinda of orange or pink mandatory to wear during gun season. "But what about the Bucks?" you ask. The Bucks original name was going to be the Robins due to a name the team poll but was changed because they felt Bucks was more fitting. The now Bucks would be the Robins. My odyssey through the creation of the Milwaukee Blazers franchise ends in the present day. But not the way it started. Miller Park can't hold a football field, but it can hold a football pitch. three football matches have been played at Miller Park, the latest being F.C. Pachuca vs Club Leon. I said to myself,"If Yankee Stadium can have an MLS club why, can't Miller Park." The finished project looks like this. The logo puts the buck head in front of the tricolor of brown, orange, and white to mimic the german flag because of Milwaukee's big german influence. The Orange is the Primary while the Brown is the secondary and the white is the clash or warm weather kit. That's my journey through creating a present day football team, alt history team, and a football club. Hope you enjoy.

    This is a very rough sketch of a project I hope to complete over the weekend. It started as my proposal for the new USL D3 club slated to start play in Madison, but they obviously wanted a Madison-centric identity. So I tweaked it to make it a bit more focused on Milwaukee, but in such a way that people throughout the state could support the club with pride. The badge draws from both the Milwaukee city and Wisconsin state flags. I plan to experiment with a few different color combos, but will lean heavily towards blue, gold, and possibly powder blue and/or white. The badge features two barley sprigs arranged in a laurel wreath; a nod to the region's most famous adult beverage which is enjoyed by many a soccer fan. The 1848 has a dual meaning. It is the year Wisconsin joined the union and the year Milwaukee saw its first significant wave of immigrants, the Forty-Eighters from Bavaria. The Forty-Eighters were imstrumental in shaping Milwaukee's early sporting culture, of which remants can still be found throughout the city (Most famously, the "discus man" logo outside Turner Hall in Downtown MKE).
  6. As a Jazz fan who's not a huge fan of the current design (minus the City Edition jersey), I figured I would try my hand at redesigning the team. Changing the colors to dark purple, teal, and copper, the team resurrects a snowflake logo. The Association uniform is off-white, the Icon uniform purple, the Statement uniform teal, and the new City Edition uniform a gradient going from pewter blue to dark blue. C&C welcome!
  7. The Bucks haven't been good for a very long time and are irrelevant to some, but I still love this team and their old school logos and uniforms… I've always wondered what the logo on their shorts in old pictures actually looked like and recently found these. The white one's from '68-69, their inaugural year and the green shorts and shooting shirt are from '72-73.
  8. I've had a big lack of inspiration for a while, but I decided to force myself to make something. That resulted in the following Milwaukee Admirals concept. I tried to add more of a military vibe, and added yellow since the team always has a Milwaukee Brewers patch on their jersey somewhere. I wanted to make a set of jerseys with the admiral stripes on the cuffs, but I couldn't figure out how to incorporate it best on the home jersey. The differences in these jersey sets are all in the arms. Set 1: Set 2: Set 3: Which one do you like best? Do the jerseys look good? Let me know!
  9. I'm not the biggest NBA fan, but I root for the Milwaukee Bucks. I loved the Bucks' rebrand from a few years ago, but I didn't really like the alternate jersey. I think that it was a little sloppy and too busy. As I've started to do more basketball concepts lately, I wanted to redesign the Bucks' alternate jersey. I was thinking of just making another black version, but I wanted to be open to other options. I started thinking more about the city nicknames alternate jerseys. I think some of them, like Charlotte's are a little weird, but they have amazing potential. Milwaukee is known as the Cream City due to the color of the bricks of many of the historical buildings around the city. I wanted to make a Bucks jersey based around this nickname. My goals for the uniform was to keep it as crisp and clean as possible. I wanted something that spoke to Milwaukee's traditional, industrial and working class attitude while still being modern and cutting edge. I also wanted to incorporate elements of the color scheme that I thought aren't used enough, namely the cream, blue, and black. Here is what I came up with. The most noticable thing about the uniform is the cream base. This was something I was wanting to see on the home uniform, but it didn't happen. The cream is complemented with the arching "Cream City" script on the jersey, with the number between the two words. This old-school design element hearkens back to the tradition of Milwaukee. The blue and black stripe is found on the upper half of the jersey and also on the bottom of the shorts. I didn't want to make anything too busy on the sides of the uniform, less is more in this situation. A green stripe is found on the bottom of the shorts, with the Bucks logo above it. Overall, the pulls both from the traditionalist past and the future, similar to what the Bucks' redesign did. Let me know what you think!
  10. This is a project I've actually had for awhile. I decided to take the Brewers current logos and put them with the old Brewers colors. I only used Microsoft paint for this so yes it is a little low quality on some of the logos. Feedback appreciated!
  11. This fall Jordan and Marquette released Marquette's 100th Anniversary uniforms for use in the 2016-17 season. The uniforms take a lot of different elements from Marquette Basketball history and combine them together into one jersey. I like a lot of things about the uniform, but the thing I missed the most was the iconic rainbow striping on the sides of the uniforms. The new Jordan uniforms also are two-colored uniforms, making them look kind of bland at times. However, I think that Jordan cleaned up a lot of aspects of Marquette's look that were a little unorganized and wild on the previous set. There isn't any unnecessary piping or anything that really makes it too over complicated. I wanted to create a concept to combine these two jerseys while keeping the simple, pulled together, historic look. I kept all of the uniforms following pretty much the same template, just switching colors from uniform to uniform. First, for the home and away jerseys. The main change is the reappearance of the rainbow stripe. Both jerseys feature the same throwback numbering and lettering used on the current uniforms. The ventilation holes forming the pattern of the famous bumblebee jerseys stays as well. The home set features navy trim, and the gold, navy, and white rainbow striping with a gray segment on the jerseys. The away uniforms switch out navy striping for championship blue and gray for dark navy. I wanted to keep these two looks crisp and completely traditional. Now, for the alternate jerseys. These uniforms use the same template as the other two uniforms. The only change is on the yellow jersey, where "Marquette" is replaced by "Golden Eagles". Marquette has never done anything like this in their history, but I wanted to try something different with these. The only difference on the championship blue set is a navy outline around the gold lettering and patches. Overall, the jerseys bring back the rainbow striping without being too busy. I think I struck the right balance between the past two uniforms. All C&C is appreciated! Curious to hear how I did.
