Mudville Nine


Discrim

Recommended Posts

This one's been done for a couple days, you're seeing it for the first time though. Without further ado, the home and away.

The black portions of the sleeves and placket simulate rolled-up sleeves and 19th century collars, respectively (the black uniform also incorporates these). All three caps seen have stripes wrapping around, a la the old pillbox caps.

as you might figure, the white alt looks somewhat out of place. uh, you know what, in hindsight this might rank with that white Temple footy jumper I did among my worse ideas, so have a laugh til I change it later. The black jersey's faux collar has faux laces as well (which I didn't have room for on the home/away due to the script).

I think it has to be clearly stated now that the logo and wordmark are not original...Studio Simon designed this for the California League Mudville Nine prior to the 2000 season. All this is a jersey and cap concept using original artwork, and this should have been clearly defined at the onset so everyone knows that this isn't a brand new identity package.

EDIT: Hell, the Nine's logo has been my avatar for about three years now.

Calm down. So one person thought it was an original logo? So what? Is it necessary when doing a jersey concept, to say, this is not my logo? No. If I were doing a minor league baseball concept for the Clearwater Threshers, I would not have a disclaimer that says that the logs are not my own.

As for the concept, top notch. The only thing wrong with it is the first alternate, as stated before. I really like how you made the collars and 'rolled up' sleeves. I always really enjoy your concepts, as they are original and inventive.

Yes.

that seems to happen to me a lot...though then, usually I only say much about the logo if I either created or modified it, or am using another poster's logos. If I aint, like in this thread, I've assumed that at least some of the posters know I'm using emblems the team is/was using. Looks like this'll be the last time I omit that.

Is it just me or does the guy in the logo look like 'Bill the Butcher' in Gangs of New York?

Great work as ever Discrim, certainly amongst the most distinctive and original designers on the board.

Bingo! I knew he looked familiar, now I know who he looked like.
