Continental Independent Baseball League: the Expansion

Recommended Posts

Somehow I completely missed this when it was actually being posted. Amazing stuff. This should have gotten as much attention as the current hotness concept leagues. Here's a vote for finishing it off.

I agree, keep it going, you had a great concept.

Ottawa Stags
Ottawa, ON

I told you it'd be back! For anyone who followed this series, big apologies for the almost two-year delay. This work kinda got lost among everything else I was doing, but I'm going to try to post it all, really just to finish it off. (In fact, I started an expansion CIBL project, so if I have time to finish the last remaining bits, I'll post all of that too...) So here we go.

The Stags' colors are a bit odd--wine, navy, rose, and gray--but hopefully they work together. The type and the wordmarks are very stylized, including flourishes on the interior of the characters. The cap logo is a simple stylized O. For the unis, I went with the O instead of a "Stags" wordmark, because I liked the classic simplicity. The alternate logo is the stag head set within a stylized diamond.

It's back yes!

Ottawa looks great...the colors are beautiful. The "stagy" O is a great logo...I feel like the overall pointy wordmark and numbers may be a little much but they fit the concept.

Has it already been two years? It's been a fast two years for me...anyway that deer looks so slick and majestic. Love the pose.

My only two complaints would be:

1. With a baseball that big, the seams should have more detail, so we can see the individual seams (although I know for me personally seams can be a pain)

2. The legs get lost among the trees kind of.

I think a stag stand-alone logo would look really nice.

Very inspiring stuff here.

Portland Chinook
Portland, OR

Colors here are marine green and forest green, with touches of silver and pink. For the wordmarks, I wanted a wavy, rising effect to evoke moving upstream against river rapids, and the cap logo is a simple stylized P, whose colors mimic those of the chinook: silver on top and a white belly. The alternate logo/sleeve patch is a stand-alone chinook (which is also in the shape of a C).

is it just me or do 75% of the teams here have a similar "Old west style" font? That being said I do like it on Ottawa the most.

Hartford though is my favorite :)

Salt Lake City Cougars
Salt Lake City, UT

Anyone who followed PuckDrawn has seen most of this before. Colors are burnt orange, purple, and gray. The Cougar--which is also the cap logo--is very stylized. The home wordmark is a classic baseball script, while the road wordmark uses the custom type. The sleeve patch features a cougar print set over a western mesa scene within a baseball diamond. (That one may not be working that well...)

Thank you for bringing this back!!! First off, your Stag is a thing of beauty and done perfectly! Portland Chinook, another really sharp looking set that you put a lot of thought into, and finally, your Cougars have a very classic, yet modern feel to them, great work all around, good to have this project back!
