Tumblr Premier League

So I wanted to do a fantasy EPL team this year, so I recruited a close group of friends from tumblr to go all in with a league. Fake logos and team names, the whole 9 yards. I've taken a hiatus from the boards, but I just thought I'd show you all some of wht I've been playing with.

So we had 14 teams this year, and my good bud Jeremy and I started branding the league. Jeremy created the league logo which is found above. Gonna be honest, this whole league was born from me thinking it would be funny to be a team called Dads FC just because of the jokes I could make (my supporter's group is called the Stepdads). But I just told everyone to be creative with their team names and we'll do the rest. Here's the 14 logos together.

The ones i did are

Dads FC - I took a West Ham approach. I did crossed hammers, and put the team motto "Let's Build A Deck" underneath.

KBFC - My friend wanted Kyle Beckerman as a logo, so I did what I could with the red USA jersey and dreadlocks.
StarBomb FC - Named after the video game themed band of Game Grumps host, their logo is neon light-like, modeled after Italy.

Atletico Fedora - Just a joke towards the neckbeard population, modeled after Southampton.

SCPDFC - for a huge Mad Men fan and thought the Lucky Strike logo would be good to use

Bogus FC - My friend wanted Bill and Ted's excellent adventure as a theme, and often takes pictures with his Jack Daniels. Modeled after Aston Villa

Vada Vada - They're named after a song by The Garden and I made them look like Juventus

Hedgehog United - Sonic was the basis for this one. I put a ring from the game around it and an outline of Sonic

Sharks MD FC - Training to be a doctor, I used WBA as a basis with a shark logo I made with a stethescope
My Bed FC - My friend works for SKC and was gonna only pic hot players for her team

So yeah! I've been doing a lot of graphic work and blowing everyone away because no one but me has been in a league like this. I do best and worst players of the week, some other graphics, and even mock Tifos.

The kits for the players of the week look like this
