  1. Okay, so it has been seemingly FOREVER since I posted anything resembling a concept on these boards. But I've been playing around with something for a few minutes here and there for probably two weeks now, and I'd love to get some feedback to know if I'm potentially onto something or just wasting my precious free time. I've always been a fan (like many of you it seems) of the Rays' original Devil Rays identity, but I thought it missed the mark in a few areas. I loved (still do) the gradient. But there were far too many colors in the logo(s), and the uniforms seemed to miss the opportunity to "own" the bright colors by overuse of black and purple. Some parts of the logos also use too many fine details or super thin strokes. So here's what I got. Right now it's something of a visual dream journal. I apologize for not taking the time to split all the elements into separate files yet. Basically, I dropped the black for a dark purple. I kept the gradient but had the gamut run from yellow to aqua-ish to purple. Purple would be primary, with yellow secondary and aqua tertiary. Light purple only in highlights in the logos. Thickened/simplified some elements and strokes. Have an idea of where I want to go with uniform striping. Started playing with a custom number font, but not sure it can work. Dropped the "Devil," obviously (though I never disliked it). Can't pick a preference of uniform wordmarks. So let me know what, if anything is worth continuing. I appreciate all comments ahead of time. Thanks guys!
  2. In what can only be described as the culmination of over a decade of poor management, utter moronic ideas, and a lack of planning, we find ourselves on the cusp of history. The first ever two country team in history. Montreal and Tampa Bay sharing the Rays. Sound like a terrible idea? Well, it is. A French speaking Canadian city and a English speaking city sharing a mediocre team that the vast majority of fans have long forgetten about. Nevermind the Expos having 35 years of history. I'm actually quite impressed with myself on this one. It's almost as if I've put more effort and thought in the last hour of designing than Stu Sternberg has put in the last several weeks. No idea what their name will be. No idea what the logo will be. No idea what they'll do for the playoffs. Haven't spoken to the city of Montreal or Tampa Bay. All of this being taken into consideration, I did exactly what you could do with this joke of a situation. Turned the terrible faux-back jersey for the Rays into an Expos jersey. I do look forward in the future to design a few more concepts, once the team decides San Juan should share in the fun, and then decides Sao Paulo deserves to share as well. The first ever Portugese/English/French/Spanish team ever. As in the words of the absolute mad man himself: "If you get two dollars there and one dollar here, you have three dollars"
  3. In 2008, the Tampa Bay Rays dropped the Devil for a logo concept that could at best be considered conservative. Combined with the dull soup can that is Tropicana Field, this lead to uniforms and branding that is all together entirely too dark for a team invoking the sun. With a new stadium on the way and a new era of success (hopefully) on the horizon, now is the time to shift to a look that displays the bright future of the franchise in more ways than just the name. Sky Blue takes the stage as the new primary color of the team with Sunshine Gold as the main accent. This 1) brightens the team's look at 2) gives them a unique color combination not used by any current team as their primary look. The updated navy Ocean Blue, while absent from the primary logo, does appear in the The new logo proudly displays the TB backed by the golden sun of the Sunshine State. The Sun has a more traditional burst to it compared to the sparkle and carries on it nine points, one for each player on the field. Some rebrands of the Rays have them dropping the Bay in favor of just being the Tampa Rays and I've never thought that flowed well for starters and it alienates the team from the other area franchises. The Buccaneers, Lightning and Rowdies have all embraced the Bay and have been shown that love back. No matter where the new stadium is put, a team in this position needs to doing everything it can to rally the entire area under its banner. The cap takes inspiration from the old Expos but it meant to evoke the Sun breaking from behind clouds on a sunny day. (Or if you don't like rebrand speak, Powder Blue sidepanels with a gold bill just looks solid to me). The decision for a single cap was to keep the brand as simple as possible on the jump and of course BP options and the like would be added later. Taking a cue from one of my favorite uniforms, the home whites have the primary logo over the chest alone. The associated wordmark, while not appearing on the uniform, would be the main wordmark stripings for tickets, stadium branding etc. The road grays show the first use of Ocean Blue but you still get a sense of this being a Sky and Sun team and not another Navy and White squad. For the alternate uniform a lighter shade of the Sky Blue is used as the base which complemented the gold on top rather than a pure Sky base in which the gold was lost a little bit. Too much of a good thing.
  4. Inspired by the style of the Hotline Miami videogame, I decided to rebrand the Tampa Bay Rays, changing their logos and wordmarks, but keeping the current uniform style. This is the wordmark: The monogram: The Manta Ray: And last but not least, the uniforms: C&C appreciated!
  5. I read an article this weekend talking about the Rays having a 20th anniversary patch for next year, but it should be this year. I decided to take initiative and design my own Rays 20th anniversary patch.
  6. So, while doing the Premier League x Baseball crossover series, I had the idea of doing a next series about MLB tweaks. This comes from the re-designing idea I had for the Tampa Bay Rays. I think their current indentity is fine, but, IMO, the colours they use don't stand out, specially compared to the scheme they used dyring their first two years (from 1998 to 2000). That's why I decided to take their current wordmark and logos, using their original multi-colour gradient, using navy just for the trimming. These are the wordmarks from the jerseys: For the uniforms I decided to keep navy as seconary colour, adding the gradient on the cuffs, pants, socks and numbers borders. For the caps I decided to make the front white for the home and alt versions, inspired by the @Carolingian Steamroller's designs: NOTE: I know there are other TB Rays concepts on the forum, but I don't know if somebody has already tried this same idea. C&C appreciated!
  7. Back in October, I started my "Yet Another" series of concepts by doing a crossover thread in which I made football team out of current MLB teams. It was fun and probably my most successful thread on these boards with the NHL Crossover and NFL Series threads right behind. Fast forward almost nine months and I've decided to update each and every one of the concepts. Instead of adding on to the old thread and having you all dig through almost 7 pages of now-broken links, I will re-post them using my new Nike Vapor Untouchable template, featuring pants options and more-detailed helmets. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Without further ado, the first team "up to bat" is the... ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS: Home: Away: Alternate: Blackout: Throwback: Suggestions: Outline helmet logo in turquoise on primaries, use proper throwback font. NOTES I decided to start with Arizona because Anaheim is just a simple template change and the D-Backs had more to work with. I wasn't able to recreate the actual diamond/gradient pattern that the team uses, so I settled for a basic gradient. The helmet, jerseys, and pants all feature a gradient. The D-Snake logo appears on the helmet and the pants options feature the thin cut-off stripe. The Throwback was obvious as it's based on their inaugural set. This time I made the pants and helmet shiny & copper. C&C is appreciated. Anaheim is on deck!
  8. the St Louis Cardinals are my baseball team and they have always looked good to great as far as I'm concerned. However I was pretty disappointed when they emoted the blue hats to "alternate" status a few years ago and added the unnecessary cream St Louis alt. If the Cardinals must messa round with their look, I would like to see them do something like this: There aren't many huge changes here. The biggest changes are probably the addition of an updated Sluggerbird sleeve patch, and the tweaked logos with yellow eyes as a throwback to previous iterations of the Birds on the Bat. I also removed the front numbers because I think baseball uniforms generally look better without them. I love the way the Cardinals have looked throughout their history when they wear a blue cap with a red bill, so it has become the primary cap and a red bird-on-bat cap would be the home Sunday cap. The changes are pretty straight forward and simple, but I think they do improve upon a look that is already very very good. Please let me know what you thing, I would love to ear some C&C. Thanks for taking the time to have a look.
  9. Hi, everybody. I was looking at the Rays' road uniform, and I was thought, "Why doesn't it say 'Tampa Bay' on it?" So, I created my own concept for a new road uniform. Everything is pretty much the same, except for the socks and the wordmark on the front. I would happily accept your thoughts on the concept, whether they be positive or negative.
