Premier League Number Concept

So the Premier League is halfway through a season with their new great bold branding. The numbers are the only thing that didn't change, which is weird because they still feature the old full body lion. I'm not sure what the point is but they have to be working on something for next year.

Couple of take aways from the branding is that there are two versions of the lion logo, which makes the mane of the lion the darker bit whether on light or dark. Theoretically it would be easy since there are 5 colors used, and each one really only works on either light OR dark kits.

Their branding features this big lightning bolt thing, which is featured here.

Making me want to try and use it in some way. So here is what I came up with below.

The bolt is  in the same position on every number, and would make it uniquely Premier League. Major  League Soccer has a stroke going across the number, so it was done in the same vain. Let me know what you guys think, and feel free to post your own if you want!

Quick little revision with thin numbers

I've noticed a lot of spikes in views on my concepts lately. Is that all google or do I have people checking back regularly?

Lemme know! I'll try and post more. Or follow my twitter @michaeldanger19

Adidas NHL Pride Series - Colorado Avalanche

Colorado has one of the coolest flags. it just has gaudy primary colors. But you know, a lot of people say this series is ugly but I couldn't get that bad. I designed this like an actual alternate uniform. They started using the flag C on the shoulders, so it's really just a swap of the logos. The white band under the C is the same width as the sleeves and it's all cuffed off with the maroon.

Adidas NHL Pride Series - LA Kings

This was one I really envisioned when I created this series. LA's flag is kinda ugly with angled colors going red yellow and green. My idea would be to recreate that on a hockey jersey. With the Kings just using black and white, the colors could really pop. So i used those colors on the open ends of the jersey and the collar. Oh, and I brought back the BK king on the chest cause it's my series, dammit.

Some FIBA Concepts

I wanted to play with some international basketball concepts, so I did! Below are some really good teams, some have new logos, but I wanted to make modern Nike uniforms for all the teams.

Adidas NHL Pride Series - Arizona Coyotes

I opened up my laptop and saw the concept I did most recently.  I always wanted to do an Arizona concept with heavy turquoise for the Native American tribes in the area. So to add some more color, I used it as the main body of the sweater. The striping is a southwestern pattern on black with the brick red in basically any other place I could.

Adidas NHL Pride Series - St. Louis Blues

Well turns out I didn't do navy adidas stripes like I had thought, but I remember debating between that and yellow and this was better. BUT this is pretty simple Canadiens style striping with the wavy striping from the St. Louis flag. The flag has a yellow circle with a one color fleur. Then I used Navy on a lot to balance it all out.

Adidas NHL Pride Series - Pittsburgh Penguins

Pretty basic on this one. The city seal is black and gold and originally was my idea for this. Doing some research, the old NHL Pittsburgh Pirates uniforms were nice. Black and gold, a big P on the front, and the city crests on the sleeves. With the right modifications, I could turn this into a Pens  jersey.  So that's exactly what I did, which you can see below!

Adidas NHL Pride Series - Dallas Stars

Real proud of this one. Since the Texas flag is so different from the colors of the Stars, I wanted to try something different. If you look up a picture of the Dallas skyline, one prominent feature is a building with big green neon strip lights going up the length of the building. I tried to imitate that on a black background. The green is more neon than their kelly green. I also did some western furls in some areas to really drive home that this team is from Texas.

Adidas NHL Pride Series - Florida Panthers

So the Panthers started to bring in things that reflect the Florida flag. My thinking was that some light jerseys were needed, and I felt like this would be a great chance. So what I did was go all out. The main bit of the jersey features a cross from the flag, similar to the Edinburgh Capitals. The sleeve stripes are the same width for consistency sake. Finally. I didn't put it on the back just because it'd be hard to read.

Adidas NHL Pride Series

Alright guys! So this was originally a NeatO Gang project, but since everyone is a couple series behind me(don't worry I'm on their ass on getting content out), I'm taking creative control of this series.

So if you're not a hockey guy, Adidas owns Reebok, who makes the NHL jerseys. Starting next year, they're putting Adidas on the sweaters. This means that they're eliminating alternate jerseys and redoing some uniforms just like Reebok did when they started their term.
I had this idea on Thanksgiving of alternate jerseys reflecting the cities the teams are in. Pretty simple and would produce a lot of new jerseys for alternates. Since this would hypothetically be Adidas first original sets, they all would have Adidas stripes just to annoy everyone. I don't make the rules, the template does.

Without further adieu, here is the first.

Winnipeg Jets

This was the first I did. Manitoba's flag is a sea of red with a union jack in the top left and a seal on the main bit. I used the red from the jets logo as the main color, and put that seal on the shoulders just like the Flames. The white and grey make a chrome looking stripe, bordered by navy. Also put some military chevrons on the sleeve. Nothing too crazy, just feeling out this project.
