On another note, Sheffield is awesome. I love the way you worked the steel motif into the design, connecting the city to the steel industry, even if the name was taken.

Great Job!

Cadbury for Manchester--but aren't they American-owned now? I know that for some reason, when I was putting my suspended soccer project together, I was giving my Chicago team Cadbury for their sponsor. I also think Ziyad, another foreign-owned company but with deep British roots (Vimto!) So many classic British names have been bought by foreign companies--Jaguar to Tata also comes to mind.

Oh, and Sheffield is phenomenal. I like the Union identity. I like how the rose looks like a football, and I like how the "spikes" in the rose mimic the steel-plate embossing in the background. It's just perfect.

Yes, sadly they are now part of Kraft. Cadbury's should be a Birmingham sponsor really, as Bournville is not that far from the Second City.

Birmingham Workshop

Went with another one of you guy's suggestions with this one. Originally, I was going to do a royal blue and white team, but realized that it'd basically be like Tampa. I knew I wanted a team that was light blue and changed Birmingham to that. I used navy as an accent color and went from there. The crest has an anvil for the industry, and a BW for the team initials.

Went with Kappa and a crazy design(because I forgotI wanted to do a sash like the logo) I played around with the colors and patterns and ended up with the following.

Also check the league logo on the first page!

I'm curious what motivated the choice of an Art Deco typeface for the initials.

Something about the league logo I don't like. I guess I just never liked the corporate takeover of all things European sports. Great work though with Workshop.

YC Cardiff

I wanted to do a simple and classic concept that reflected not only Cardiff, but all of Wales. I did a simple C in a circle with the dragon from the Welsh flag. I toned down the green, and kept the red because that color scheme is awesome. Simplicity was the key to this set.

I originally wanted to do a white top and green bottom set, but the color scheme made me change my mind. I went with red over white like the national teams customary to Wales. Just some simple designs similar to Manchester United's former white kit. The clash kit is all green.

Makes me think of Welsh Cubs, which I like. The colors are beautiful together, and I like the shoulder detail. I'd possibly use white or green socks on the clash, but otherwise solid set.

Gotta say that the red name on the back of Cardiff's green jersey is almost unreadable.

Other than that, the whole series, for me, is nothing short of perfect. Can't wait to see what you come up with next.

Rwyf wrth fy modd y set! Mae hynny'n hunaniaeth hardd ydych wedi cynllunio ar gyfer y tîm!

(Translation: I love the set! That is a beautiful identity you've designed for the team!)

Manchester Four

I wanted to do a concept for a team with the number. Four is how many players on the field on a team, and how many quarters there are in a game. I didn't want to exile the fans of City of United choosing a color palate used by one of them. I chose purple and gold(U of W Huskies colors), and went from there. A big 4 with 4 stars and a crest and I was set.

I LOVE the plaid pattern that Nike used this year for United, and carried it over. Over white pants and it looks different from every other team. The clash is gold with purple accents and I feel the colors carry this concept.
