Creating (mostly) new uniform concepts with (mostly) old logos in TeamBuilder

Recommended Posts

Here are a few examples I made myself of football uniforms designed around old logos. I've never designed the whole uniform in PhotoShop; I find TeamBuilder so easy to use. Note: make sure you check the box on the page that says "Display Custom Logos," or you won't be able to view these. C&C welcome; also, does anyone else have anything similar? While it is a bit constraining in limiting one to pre-designed uniform styles, I love the ease of use that this tool provides. Most of the generic logos came from the Wayback Machine's archive of maddenteams.com.

Another note: I have two separate accounts because I made so many teams, so these aren't all from the same account.

Apologies in advance for the size of the post. I'm obviously not expecting everyone who reads this to look at every logo. Just graze till you find something you like. By the way, if anyone here plays NCAA 14, feel free to use any of these. :)

For the Devil Rays one that looks pretty cool, just the logo is distorted. Might want to edit that, it's a pretty easy fix and would make it a lot better

Just not high-quality enough, or what? I'm not really sure how to improve the resolution. I downloaded it from this site.

This is nice! For the couple of logos I design I never think about uniforms because the programs I have aren't really built for it but I have to play around with this.
