EPL Redesign: Queens Park Rangers

QPR was a fun team to play with, just because after the blue stripes on the home, I really could do anything with them. I did a dark grey and black clash, and a red orange third. They’re all similar designs, with a few tweaks.

EPL Redesign: Reading FC

Using my puma template, I did some royal blue hoops on the shirt and socks. Pretty simple on the home. The clash is a red jersey with a blue sleeve, and white pants. The 3rd is pretty out there, I did black with some high lighter piping that pops off the black.

EPL Redesgin: Southampton

One of those EPL teams that has red and white stripes, oh boy. I brought them back, as opposed to the thin white stripes now. The clash is a white version with a grey stripe pattern. The team's nickname is the Saints, so I chose yellow as a 3rd kit in the same pattern.

EPL Redesign: West Ham United

This is my second time redesigning the EPL. I wanted to take more liberties than I did back in 2009. Feel free to drop me a line with your opinions. I'm tarting with the promoted teams, and working up.

I obviously went with claret and blue on the home, which I did a basic design with piping and mismatching sleeves. The clash is a darker blue from the primary blue, from shirt to sock. The 3rd alt is a white and black look of their other kits. I blacked out the crest in addition to just using blue for the piping.

Nashville Sounds Rebrand

So I love it when teams in a city will synchronize colors(like how Pittsburgh SHOULD be all black/yellow, and Seattle SHOULD be navy/lime green). The Predators rebranded with yellow and navy, and the Sounds were a perfect team to match them

I've always wanted to do this concept because Nashville has the worst look in the PCL, in my opinion. The fist thing I did, was make an N using musical notes. The current cap logo is a music note, so I did something less abstract and made an N. From there, I did a script using a font, and then did the primary. I was going to just do "Sounds" in the font, but thought to check and see if there was an S shaped note. When you turn a G clef around, then it does make an S, so I went ahead and did that. Instead of (G clef)ounds, I put another clef on the end of the script than put more strings running under the script. That was pretty much what my sketches looked like.

The jerseys are pretty simple, just some piping here. I played around with caps, and liked the two I chose. I put the 6 strings across the number, and around the socks. I couldn't not use the motif everywhere!

I finally can cross this off my list of logos to do, FINALLY.

London Royals

I'm starting a fantasy league on the Logo Asylum, and I needed a logo. Lions are my favorite animal, and London is my favorite city I've been to. London is known for their Royalty, so the name was chosen. Three lions are on the crest, hense the lion, and the crown is actually from the "keep calm and carry on" posters. I did a stylistic lion as a primary, and it was all I needed.

 I went with my pattern to football uniform success(helmets/pants match, jersey/socks match) So This was easy. I put the same striping on the sleeves as the helmet and pants.
