Logos/jerseys/caps for LBF

Just posted about my new league in the Dynasty forum - a six-team fictional league called the Lyonesse Baseball Federation. You can read all about it there, but I wanted to repost the description of the teams here, just in case anyone would like to take a crack at the logos and unis. I've got a vague start on the Pirates, and I've posted the league logo, although I should make a note to replace the banner of "Independent Baseball League" with the actual league name at some point soon.


Also, if you do: I'm not a big fan of the round-style logos, so please just use a transparent background.



Anyway, here is the league info. I don't have much to offer to those who make the logos and unis, but it's possible I could send something along, or work out a deal in trade.




The Teams of the Lyonesse Baseball Federation

Eastgate Pirates
Junior Team: Valentine Junior Pirates
Colors: Maroon and White
Cap Emblem: white "E" on maroon
Park: National Baseball Stadium -- Quichotte, Atlantia -- Capacity 22,560

Junior Team: West Daline Junior Browns
Colors: Brown and Orange
Cap Emblem: orange and brown fleur-de-lis
Park: Palace of the Fans -- Melrose, Dalinetopia -- Capacity 5,000

Miramar Neptunes
Junior Team: Hamilton Sharks

Park: National Baseball Stadium -- Quichotte, Atlantia -- Capacity 22,560
Owner: Edgar Froese (GER)

Phaedra Aeros
Junior Team: Calvados Gladiators
Colors: Green
Cap Emblem: to be determined
Park: Martin Road Park -- Phaedra, Columbia -- Capacity 3,500

Note: pronunciation is [FAY-dra]

Rubycon Petrels
Junior Team: Atem Smashers
Colors: Black, Grey, and White
Cap Emblem: petrel head
Park: Petrel Park -- Rubycon, Columbia -- Capacity 7,110
Owner: Gabriel Weinberg (USA)
Note: pronunciation is [ROO-bee-kahn]. A petrel is a bird similar to a seagull which is common in Lyonesse.

Tangines Tigers
Junior Team: Tangram Street Tabbies
Colors: Yellow and Black
Cap Emblem: either "TT" or growling tiger
Park: Mendrick Field -- Tangines, Dalinetopia -- Capacity 5,800

oriole,

If none of the good graphics guys do these for you, I will help you out... txranger, knuckler, low and Leaf Load are way out of my league.

I am only average at best and very limited in what I can do, but I do a decent logo, home and away jerseys and caps.

Let's give the good designers a few more days... if you get no response, then I will try to help you.

One thing for sure, I could not do them as per your instructions... I have to find a mascot image... such as Pirates, Gladiators and Tigers... but I can't change colors that the images are... I have to use those colors for the caps and jerseys.

Greatly appreciated, Gene. I'm working my way through the Pirates now...slowly, as Real Life keeps butting its way into my baseball time.

Obviously, I'm not owed any designs from anyone. I could possibly pay a few dollars through PayPal, but I don't have a great deal to spare...I do feel, however, that artists are owed for their work, and I like to try and adhere to that when I can. I mean, it would literally only be a couple of bucks.

ETA: Also, the colors and design elements up there are visuals that I had worked out, but they are by no means set in stone. If you have some other ideas, by all means, indulge your creativity.

None of the graphic guys on this Graphics Forum that have ever done any work for me would ever take anything for their work... not even a tip... or a gift copy of the next version of the OOTP game... they just want to give back to the OOTP Community.

Let's give them a few more days to see if anyone will do them for you.

It is hard to get a few logos done these days... much less the number that you want... I doubt very seriously that you will get much help.

Hope I'm wrong and have to eat my words... but it is hard to get help on the forums these days.

Have you looked at logos, jerseys and caps that have already been created? That might be your quickest source and you would have to be flexible... you might have to change some of your nicknames.

I will post a sample of my work... it will not offend me if it is not what you want... both quality and style... if they don't fit your needs... just say so... no offense taken.

Just don't be a nice guy and just to keep from hurting my feelings say you like them when you don't... please don't let me spend time making them and then you not use them.

There are a few existing logos I will probably leverage. Heck, the Browns (as an example) are basically just the '53 St. Louis Browns, exactly, so I can use them just fine - taking all the St. Louis branding off, that is. The Petrels of course will be trickier.


I'll be sure to give my exact opinion on any that you make.

Good enough... I have a tough skin.

Here are some logo samples of my work.

Keep in mind, I can't change any colors of the images I use.

I find a Tiger or Pirate image and then create a logo, jersey and cap using the colors of that image.

I am very limited in the variety of fonts... almost all of my fonts are just simple block lettering... no script fonts.

Here are some sample jerseys.

I did not create the Coyotes lettering (low or Leaf Loaf did it)... just copied it and used it.

A few more jerseys.

As you can see, I only do basic graphics... average at best... nowhere near what the good guys can do.

Looking at your list of nicknames... I can probably find mascot images for only the Pirates, Sharks and Gladiators... and maybe Neptunes.

You have some unique nicknames that I wouldn't have any idea of what to use for an image... can't help on the Smashers, Tabbies or Petrels.

oriole, do you want me to start on your league teams?

It looks like no one is going to do any of them except me.

Let me know if you still want help.

No problem if you want to wait for the good graphics guys.

Gene,

Thanks again; sent you a reply by PM.

I'm having a graphic designer friend of mine take a look at them...

I will say, yours are pretty neat. They have that sort of old-time flannel look to them, which is perfect for your league.

I'll put up the logos in a while, but for now, what do you think of these for the Melrose Browns?


Not exceptionally original, but there's a certain classy look to them.

This is very well done... I might steal this from you, should I expand my North Island Recreational League... really like the name Melrose Browns... the font in the away jersey is mighty fine... very classy.

I love the old St. Louis Browns logos and jerseys.

Just my opinion, I think Orange would be a little bit better than Red... it looks reddish Orange to me... like real Orange better.

The orange used is (207,69,32) in RGB... and feel free to steal away. I'll have logos done soon.


Thinking I should've gone with the brownie on the shoulder of the away jersey, too.

Still working on logos. Eastgate is next, though really I'm waiting for my graphic designer to come up with stuff.


In the meantime, still open to anyone else taking a swing at it.


(Spent the last week dodging tornadoes. Second-smallest county in Maryland, and we've had two touch down here on two different days in the past week. Yikes!)

An update: it appears my graphic designer has flown the coop. No contact in weeks. This is a very common problem with the profession, it seems. I had offered money for them, but apparently that wasn't enough of a factor.


So I'm back to where I was. Pfeh. Ah, well. Will keep plugging away.

...so the caps will look like this. I'm thinking the one with the (Towson) Tiger will be an alternate.
