Atlanta Braves

Atlanta Braves

For starters, the Braves' look is great. The piping is unique and the logos and wordmarks fit nicely together. There are a few things I would change though. First, I modified the colors. I used a darker navy, which as actually listed as an alternate color (thanks to Colorwerx). The dark navy replaces the regular navy, a move the serves 2 purposes. It is a nod to the history of the team, when they used black and red, and it separates them a little from the other navy and red teams.


The home and road are pretty much the same as currently. On the red alternate I switched the colors around so the script is white outlined in navy. I think this stands out better. The home alternate is a retro-inspired uniform, featuring navy sleeves and a white front-panel hat. There is also a navy version.

Arizona Diamondbacks

Baseball is here, and so is my annual MLB concept series. Enjoy!

Arizona Diamondbacks

The Diamondbacks once had the coolest color scheme in the league, IMO. Then they switched to a color set very similar to another NL team. The new logos are good, but I’m not a fan of the wordmarks. Here, I used the old colors, replacing copper with sand. New wordmarks and modified logos are included. The uniforms feature a trim design based off of an old alternate. Cream is used rather than white. Purple is the primary home color while black is the primary road color. Teal is used very little except for the BP set. I am using the old BP design; I like it better than the newest one. The alternate hat uses the old snake head logo, from my favorite BP cap of all time. The white alternate is a tribute to the 2001 World Series unis.
