Magpies upon Tyne

I thought this was fun. Magpies is a nickname for Newcastle United, which is a bird in the UK(and is one of the cooler birds ever). I drew a magpie, and tried to make it modern. The name is based off of Newcastle upon Tyne, which is the name of the city, so I replaced Newcastle with Magpies. Tyne is the river that runs through Newcastle, if you didn't know. But, I liked the color scheme because it's the same colors as United!

I really didn't want to do stripes like united, so I matched the crest and did a half and half uniform. I used puma and tried to make it similar to the crest, with piping and stuff. I really like these! The clash is the light blue version of the home.

Love this. Name, crest, mascot, uniforms and sponsor all create a great identity not only in general but one very suitable for Newcastle.

This is all beautiful. But I've gushed about that before.

I think just "Belfast YC" would be fine.

Bump for Newcastle.

I wanted to do Sheffield Steelers using Orange/Black/silver, but the hockey team that actually uses the same arena uses that same identity. Thought that was funny.

That Magpies identity is just lovely! If this were a real league, we'd see that bird (just by itself) on a lot of merchandise...

Magpies identity is so different without venturing into "weird," I absolutely love it, esp the home uni.

LOVE the Magpies secondary logo and uniforms. Absolutely beautiful stuff. The one thing that I'm iffy about is the blue banner (is that the right term?) on the primary logo... I'm no logo designer, but my gut reaction is that there's just something kind of off and distracting about it. Maybe an arched banner underneath the shield, a la St Kilda Saints? Just a thought.

Magpies looks great. I think Newcastle United would look great in those kilts, nevermind a team in a Yakball League. My only gripe in that in the main crest, the Upon just looks wierd. It is designed well, it just kind of makes it seem less like a sports logo, and more like a website logo.

The Magpies are very cool looking and the full name is very unique as far as sports go.

Good job.

This is top notch. I love the simplicity of the uniforms, and the bird logo is just great.

The Magpies logo is wonderful! However, you could possibly incorporate a little more blue into the home kit. However, I am fascinated by this series! Maybe a Mexico-Caribbean-Central American league????

Very, very nice. The secondary logo is great and the brand is fantastic. I know you want to keep it as real as possible but the green sponsor doesn't look good with the blue and black.

Sheffield Union

First, i wanted to do Sheffield Steelers, but that's the name of the hockey team(they even use the same colors!), so then I tried the typical club names. But since Sheffield is known for it's industry, I went with Union(workers union, you know). Orange, grey, and black, with diamond plating on the crest underneath the Yorkshire Rose.

The kits are simple, I know I wanted to do an orange top with a dark grey bottom. I went with adidas, and sort of based it of some teams, but made it my own. On the clash I wanted to do as much on the uniform as i could, but not use it as the actual color of the part.

Chicago Brigade

Originally, I planned on Tampa having a fire-themed name. Tampa means fire sticks in the Calusa language. But the Great Chicago Fire is more understood, i guess! That, and I thought of a cool name. So I wanted to play off the Fireman theme with this one. I originally had the Fire's crest, but modified it, even though it's similar. I put the 4 Chicago stars from the flag on the bottom part, and arched CHICAGO on the top. I felt like the OKC Thunder font worked well here. THe alternate logo is a helmet and hatchet, to add to the theme. I might work on the hatchet, I think that logo might need some work.

I just did a modern set for this team, and tried a few things. I did the front yellow chest part first, and was going to put a sponsor on it. But I thought some stars would look better. I put numbers above them for balance. Really, I just threw it together, but I like the final product!

I'm almost done with IX Counties. Here is a sneak peak. But Carolina is next, I think.

Sheffield is amazing. The logos look great as always and becuase of the unique colors, I think Sheffield is my favorite in the British League so far... Very nice job!

Thanks marble. I just kind of did it because that's how Chicago Fireman patches look. But I was going to redo some things with Chicago's logos anyway, so next time I get stuck, I'll redo it. Sound good exaccardi? No hard feelings man, I knew I said something about it because that'd be too obvious to rip off, ahahah.

Also still open to companies for the UK league. I want a big company. I would've gone with Vodafone, but eh. Barclay's is also taken too.
