One black button ??? Touch of a genius!!! Bravo!!! And then the " M 's " on the sleeves - superb!!! It is nice to see a person with an exceptional talent actually coming out of the shade and not hiding anymore. MUFC - should hire you full time.
Hello all and thanks for joining. Right now we are 12 so we can start the comeptition with 3 groups format, winners, runner-ups and best two 3rd palces qualifying to the quaterfinals, or wait for another 4 to join..(that would be ideal)...what you think?
in my humble opinion this is a top design in that it fits in with the clubs kit history and has respect for the team. It meets my other criteria in that it is genuinely a shirt I would wear. I had started with something similar= but not as good, so I need to make some changes before submitting!!!
i can see what you're saying but there's not only one way of seeing this...i planned a black/dark third with golden details. i know the away looks a bit bussy and i was very close of posting a more "white" version, but i think it looks just fine even is a bit "all flag". you are right about Saint Etienne and in fact this template was buit with saint etienne in mind
Hello Terion, I do like the seams pattern placement on both jerseys. However, on the away one I think that is way too annoying ( you like to use that word a lot ) to have green/white/red repeated three times : collar, badge, sleeves. I would love to see the away jersey with plain white sleeves, and the collar might look cool with that shade of blue and tiny golden stripes in there, same as on the badge. The home one looks better, but the design of the collar with these tick lines of : green/white/red makes me think of 1976 Saint -Etienne iconic shirt. Good, solid design, so far, but needs some adjustments.
I think, Rabbi, if you would remove a symbol on top and work more on the design that is filled inside the circle - that might develope into an interesting logo . As the top symbol is being heavily overused many times. Yoy keep saying Maori - so, then start sketching in that regard and see where you end up. Based on what you said, I do believe that there is another way to make a statement about New Zealand without the top symbol. That is all that I want to say.
You're right. Along with the sash the chevron is more widespread in parts of Europe and Latin America. England is the home of the plain shirt. St George were the first rugby league club to adopt a V design. During and after WW2 more Aussie RL clubs adopted this design, including Eastern Suburbs, who's colours were light blue with a red and white chevron. They soon changed the light blue to their traditional navy blue. The great French team of the 1950's wore a tricolor chevron design. British clubs like St Helens tended to change to V designs during the 1960's.
the V is very historic in soccer and has been dropped by many teams. Some colour combinations will always be synonymous with certain teams I suppose. I just fancied doing an Icelandic team that do not play home games in Reykjavik, for some reason.
You're right about the "V" or chevron design, it does shout rugby league. Besides, this yellow is more gold, whereas the Wires yellow is officially primrose. It could be a Leeds Rhinos away kit, their colours are blue and amber.
as you have the right to say and do whatever you want , being "in control", so do i. if you dont understand that posting douzens of designs once is annoying, then we really cannot have a conversation...the level would be too low. Also, mr english perfection, i think you mean "merry way", not "marry" .. looool
You are the annoying one - that is very obvious from the very start, too bad that you cannot see the obvious, sorry. So, stay away from my posts - there are plenty others to leave the comments on. That being said - go your own marry way.
Hello all. I would very much like to start a competition for kit/shirt designing. This would be a group stage - knockout competition similar to the champions league format and is not suposed to rival the KOTW competition in any way.
General rules will be: - groups of 4 (how many - depending of the number of participants) - each participant meets the others from the group in 2 legged format - in the first leg we'll design the home shirt of designated club, in 2nd leg - away shirt - 3 points for victory, 1 point for draw - 0-5 loss in case of forfait - direct matches results will be used in case of tied final points. (further details later) - winner of the group and the runners-up qualifying to the knockout stage - the final will be held in 1 leg - entries must include the front of the shirt. Shorts, full kit or back view are optional - real or fictional branding / sponsors can be used - real or redesigned badges of the club can be used
More details and rules are to follow later. Also please feel free to propose ideas and improvements. For going further with this competition i need to know the number of designers wishing to participate so please let me know your opinion and intention.
you are in control and there are no rules about consecutive posting, yet....but i'm telling you that this is annoying for the rest of us and does not make you any good.. I am as well a straight forward person and i was often criticised for my honest critique...i dont like at all this kindda "political correctness" that is literally killing us (in every aspect of our life, not just here), but you can try to be more civilized in your honesty, because otherwise it sounds very arrogant, and that is not very cool.
I am in control what and how many I can upload to the page. By the way, there are no limitations of any sort nor rules posted during the upload of the artwork on how many you can post. I'm not a professional designer - it is only my hobby, but I like to explore some of my ideas. My approach for a constructive critiqhue is not agressive - I tell straight forward, without any sugar coating or butt kissing. Feel free to leave a constructive critique on my uploads, as I left mine for yours. Europian to Europian, in solidarity!
I dont understand...i was talking to hacobcem about the fact that filling pages of designs in few minutes here on the website is not looking profesional and is annoying for us...i was not talking about the quality of the designs...so i dont understand your reply
Terion not that I am to take this any further, but we all have our idea how we think a good log design should be and there is nothing wrong with that, there is no one way of doing this and what one may like someone else may not, but we need to avoid putting our self in the position that we know it all and go after other designers because of it, not that I mean you are in any way but we can be tactful about our critic both here and else wear, that is all I was trying to communicate in my reply here nothing else.
Terion, I was trying to create a Maori theme in this logo, having the symbol in the background was an effort as to fil up the empty space that would otherwise be there, I might not have succeeded with that, I find New Zealand sport teams both national and clubs not use the Maori symbols as much as I think they should, that is just my opinion, but as far as the competition goes then I am to stay on the sideline for the time being, but will probably do some designs for the fun of it, I wish the competitors good luck in the coming competition.
Hacobcem, im not going to comment too much about what you have said..even if you may be right about some aspects, the tone u use is too agresive and you have the right to say your opinion but u dont have the right to bully. What i wanted to actually say is that the fact you fill few pages with designs, some good, some not so, often the same design conjugated in 3-4 colorizations, ...that is not too profesional and very annoying for us.
Nice logos indeed...maybe a little too busy for my taste, but the thing that bother me is this waaay overused shape..that lines inside the main circle..ive seen them too much already. Some designers just take the old logo, and put it on this template..i find this very lazy and annoying (not the case here).. put the logo on the competition Rabbi
I have no interest in taking this conversation further but I wander how many languages you speak, English is not my native language and yes I may spell some words wrong that is more than likely but I try my best. Having said that I am to end this discussion here of my part.
Learn how to spell in english first before anything. And if you think that your work is done nor need anything to work on , or you under a self ego that it is perfect - then you're dead as an artist with a nose being raised high. So, that being said try to work on some creativity, as your posts are just dull and boring - there a tons of similar designs on the web, nothing is memorable or special about your work. As long as you think that you have done some groundbreaking designs - think again.
Hacobcem you are welcome to report all you want to the administration here on DF, I don't recall having cald you any name 's here in my reply to you but if you feel so than there is not much I do about that. Have a great day.
I can leave my feedback on any work that I can choose and you are not the one to tell me what to do. You placed a work for critique - so, be a man enough to listen about how to improve the your work. I'm not here to compete with you about who's work is better or worse. I just posted my work and you posted yours, and you're more than welcome to leave a constructive feedback, please do. But your personality and attitude needs to be improve - as you know that an attitude equals a flat tire - cannot go anywhere! Any more personal attemps or name calling will be reported to the administration on this site - so, before you want to say something to me - process your stuff on the upper floor and then deliver on the bottom.
Hacobecem how com you are such a expert in logo design, having seen some of your designs here I don't think you are in any place to talk about amateurish designs, or to tel us how to do our work but you are ofcourse welcome to have your opinion, but I urge you to concentrate on your own work and try to improve it, there is lot I could say about it but I don't think it would be helpful to do so.
Hacobecm I appreciate your comment but I think I just stick to my idea if that is ok, having seen your designs I don't think you have much to teach me, I may be from Iceland but I have lived in NZ and know a bit about the Maori culture and this is just an effort to make a logo with a hint to their culture and heritage which I feel NZ sport logos might do more of
The design obviously represents the koru pattern synonomous with New Zealand. I think Rabbi has almost nailed it, particularly with the top right. I'd like to see something a bit closer to traditional kowhaiwhai decoration in the centre.
