My (Personal) Football League Redesign

Recommended Posts

hey man, love the rhinos. the best part is the 2-tone stripe on the helmets. I also like the thin outline going down the sides.

I don't want to sound negative, but, it seems the Bandits were just a pallet swap of the rhynos again. I know it may see minor, but just something that came to my attention.

It's not, but I'm going to eventually rework the Bandits, because I don't really like the way they look. They're more of a horizontal stripe team.

My vote is to leave the rhino the way it is. Rhinos are supposed to be ferocious and feared [which the logo represents]. You could add more facial features as one person suggested. The uniform colours were perfect. When are we getting the next team? Any chance of Canadian teams when this project is over?

Next team will be up this weekend since i'm almost done with the logos, and lemme warn you: the unis could be over the top.

As for a Canadian team, I don't have any right now, but if I get an idea ill try to fit its way in the concept

yeah i think the Rhinos are one of the best yet... i think you need a little over the top, i think it will help the concept... the uniforms are starting to be a little similar with the shoulder pad and pants stripes.

#6 Chicago Dragons

Up Next: #7 Los Angeles Aztecs

So the Chicago Dragons were a team that gave me tons of ideas, and I immediately got to work. The franchise had always been named the dragons, but in all aspects, the team was given this name because of the sky scrapers of Chicago. Since dragons are more mythical and fantasy-like, I let my mind wander a bit and decided to think out of the box. This look is a lot more modern, and the colors were based off the Tennessee Titans. I have a sky-blue dragon in a swirl as the primary. The secondary is much more detailed and in-depth if you will, which is a powder blue full-bodied dragon holding a shield with the 'CD' monogram, while the tertiary is that same shield from the secondary; used on the pants. The script uses the full bodied dragon from the secondary, this time holding a two-toned 'Chicago Dragons' wordmark in white. For the uniforms, I made a custom template to fit new style of the jersey will have, and here they are:

Throwback Unis (in chronological order from oldest to newest)

1, 2, 3, 4

Pants; (also, I will post up throwbacks along with the first logos of the first franchises for certain teams soon, the Rhinos are done). Whatcha guys think about the Dragons? Yay or Nay to the unis?

Dakota Rhinos: I dunno what to say about this concept except that it looks incredibly sharp, especially with the unique Rhino's horn helmet stripe.

Chicago Dragons: I like the striping on the jersey and pants for this one.

I like how the Dragons logo makes a "C" on the helmet. I'd flip it on the primary so it looks like this.

The dragon logo looks really good. I suppose my only question is the third jersey which resembles Carolina Panthers. If the colour of the trim was changed to a lighter blue, would that make the uniform worse?

i tried that but it turned out a little dull. i felt that it wouldnt get noticed that way, so i made the trim white

Limerick,

i didnt necessarily want to make it look like the Panthers but i guess the alt turned out that way. i tried inverting the white and blue, but it turned out a little dull.

i like the comments though! keep em coming!

EDIT: woops double post

the piping on the pants could be cleaned up a bit. also, the design kind of has an underarmour feel.

but, nonetheless, i absolutely love the concepts you are doing. you are staying fresh with each one. the presentation is clean and complete. also, the fact you are doing your own logos is impressive...not a lot of people on here do that. I tried and it has taken me half a year to get three good ones out.

super job

Thanks. actually, Brave-bird, yourself and dgnmrwrw have been my inspiration to start posting my own team logos rather than letting them sit there in my notepad. You may notice that i base some of my teams off your concepts, subtlely though. (if its too similar for your liking feel free to suggest a change). My Los Angeles Aztecs one, for example, is inspired by your LA Defenders and my Miami Pirates is inspired by dgnmrwrw's Richmond Renegades.

hey i don't know how many characters you are allowed to have, but since you are posting all the helmets in your sig, link each helmet to where they are located in the thread. i just thought that would be kinda cool.

Sounds good C Jay Z. I look forward to the New York Lightning. I am curious to see what you come up with for the logo as most sport teams who have gone with the Lightning have not produced interesting or creative logos.

I guess it's time for me to weigh in on this project, c jay z.

First the designs are first rate and original. And the uniform designs have some unique piping so kudos. The one glaring criticism I would have is how all but one team has the color blue or a variation of it as the primary color. I know you have alternate jerseys for them which if nothing else I would make them the primary jersey. But hey, your league, your design, your call.

As for the New Orleans franchise: being a native my suggestion for the name would be the Dukes as the city was named for the Duke of Orleans. As for the colors I would choose red as the primary, blue as the secondary (though I've just railed on you for using that color) and gold, as those are the colors of the city flag. I do like the Pelicans also, as someone has already mentioned.
