Canberra Raiders

The Raiders are my team and in the past I’ve found it tough to make drastic changes to what they’ve had. I’ve thrown a bit of caution to the wind and updated their classic look.

Central Coast Bears

Next up is what would be my local team, the Central Coast Bears.

Logo

The logo is based on the original North Sydney “Bear in a football” logo adopted in the late 1950’s.

Obviously the … Read More

Parramatta Eels

Again, little has changed from last year although I have place more emphasis on the contrasting stripe colour by making them wider (thick/thin/thick/thin/thick/thin/thick) which retains the style but adds more balance to the blue jersey in particular. Not much else … Read More

Jagera Jets

The Jets are another one of my expansion teams which I have come back to visit.

Name

Originally, I had this team under the name “South Queensland”. However, the name “Jagera” (the tribe occupying the region south-west of … Read More

Sydney Roosters

24/9/2015: This concept has been modified to avoid legal action.

I really haven’t made many changes to my Roosters set from last year, and that set isn’t far removed from what they actually wear; the Roosters are a … Read More

How many New Zealand Teams?

I spent a bit of time over the last few months, figuring how many teams New Zealand would/could sustain in the medium term (10-25 years into the future). With the current state of … Read More

Manly-Warringah Sea-Eagles

Moving from West Coast to East. The Sea-Eagles have bounced around with their identity over the past 20 years, away from the look most associated with the Silvertails moniker. The aim here is to bring their identity more … Read More

West Coast Pirates

The WA bid took everyone by surprise when they switched their branding from the Reds to Pirates. The brand is “almost there” but still needs some fine-tuning, which I have set out to do here.

Black/red/yellow … Read More

Brisbane Broncos

I’ve already leaked my Broncos designs but I wanted to add another (highly requested) retro alt.

Uniforms

I leaked these designs before the actual 2013 jerseys came out so the appearance of a yoke in the designs is … Read More

St. George-Illawarra Dragons

I aimed to more closely integrate the two identities. Its a more subtle effort than with the Tigers though it may be more controversial with St. George’s V dominating the jerseys.

From my previous Dragons post:

Melbourne Storm

With the Storm just releasing their new design, which is a modest upgrade of their last set, I decided to add my contribution for them early.

Colours

I love the emphasis on purple of late. It really sets … Read More

Newcastle Knights

The Knights have pretty much nailed their identity outside of their uniforms. The actual home jersey is terrible and their attempts to return to the Barca stripes, although a good idea, hasn’t had the best execution (imo). The … Read More

Gold Coast Titans

I’ve taken a different route from previous Titans designs, moving away from whacky cartoonish watermarks and random panels to simpler elements that place emphasis on their unique colours.

Colours

There were already a lot of blue … Read More

West Sydney Tigers

The Balmain side of the merger currently dominates the Wests Tigers identity yet does not hint at the vast history of the Balmain club (and even less so in the case of the Magpies). When the merger was formed, it was decided … Read More

Newcastle Knights 2012-13

The Knights have bugged me of late, flaunting uniforms rules by using a pseudo-heritage uniform as their home design. Next year I hope they come to their senses and pick a better regular home jersey.

Melbourne Storm 2012-13

Colours

The Storm have pretty unique colours in Australia (outside of WA), plus purple and navy perfectly represent a stormy sky. I switched out the yellow for silver to further add to the gloom.

Given that there is more than one team in New Zealand (in MY league) I’ve gone back to Auckland, which I like as a name anyway. The “Warriors” moniker also still ties in … Read More

North Queensland Cowboys 2012-13

Logo

Though not a fan of the Cowboys name, the idea of using the horns for the logo is pretty unique. What lets it down is how its slapped on top of that awful, blunt star with the wordmark alternating … Read More
