WCB/WBC Concept

I found a very interesting article a while back that I never paid much attention to at the time, but spending a fair bit of time making some jerseys and caps for OOTP, it's now come full circle; I love OOTP a ton and I figure it's my time to contribute something to the community for all the stuff you've given me to enrich my OOTP experience over the years.

Inspired by said article, I've set out to create 16+ uniforms that eliminate wordmarks and lettering in favor of globally recognizable symbols primarily for the World Cup of Baseball/World Baseball Classic tournament template. Some designs have mostly kept true to both the original WBC uniform designs and the caps in that article, others have had a little more of my own touch and creativity. It's a work in progress, so please bare with me.

Australia
feat. Liam Hendriks



Hard to change a good look, these are pretty standard. The caps in the article are perfect and the kangaroo is pretty iconic. The crest is a minimal version of their modern coat of arms featuring a kangaroo and an emu. I've got to hand it to the Aussies, they made my job real easy here.

Canada
feat. Joey Votto



I had some fun with this one. I don't like using black as a tertiary for Canadian baseball, quit trying to copy the hockey team—especially since we're nowhere as good at baseball as we are at hockey (Votto is the exception, not the rule). Black also makes sense in hockey, not so much in baseball. Silver complements white as the primary colors of Canadian winter. I was considering adding a baseball or similar to the crest, but opted for the simplicity and of the recognizable maple leaf.

China
feat. Guiyuan Xu



I'm going to be a critic of the design in the article here—it's fine to turn the stars on their side, however, it gives it a less unique identity in the direction that the artist/author turned them. Venezuela, another tournament team, has an arc of stars in their flag already. The national emblem—which is featured as the crest in a flat, non-decorated style—shows us the proper orientation would have the large star on top with the smaller stars making a reverse arc.

Chinese Taipei (Taiwan)
feat. Wei-Yin Chen



Pretty straightforward, the entire design is based off their national emblem and their Olympic flag.
---
Colombia (not Columbia)
feat. Jose Quintana



This one was a bit challenging, since the author of the article designed his own symbol. I didn't really like it, because Ecuador has more of a claim to it than Colombia. A quick search tells me that "Colombia is among the world's 17 mega-diverse countries, and the most densely bio-diverse per square kilometer" and the land of flowers, so why not rock that? Their national flower isn't even found anywhere else in the world, for goodness sake. The cap logo is a stylized orchid/flor de Mayo and the crest is the flag inside a flower/Amazonian headdress—the original source is the coat of arms from the largest area in the country.

Cuba

Thanks everyone.
I'd like some feedback for the logos, I tend to use the dark skin so I've been mostly tuning them to that, but I feel like I might be the minority. Might have to rework some outlines, nothing major, but I'd like to make these as good as I can.
For example some of these might not look so great on a white bg, so I've tried to add a dark logo as well. However some would look fine with proper outlines (I got the USA one to look great even though it's primarily navy).


I should also add the higher res flags, I realize not everyone would like to use logos.

Edit: Colombia & Cuba added.

Will definitely watch this thread, looking good so far. Keep up the good work. So what 16 teams/countries do you have in mind for this thread, at the very least? Just wondering, that's all. CD out.

All the teams that participated in the last WBC (2017). However, I've already decided to expand on it, probably starting with teams that made appearances in the qualifying rounds.

I'm also very much open to suggestions, China kind of opens the floodgates since OOTP tends to not even have real/affiliated players for the team...

So in that sense, probably better to stick with nations more relevant to OOTP games first.

Then, in that case, I can't wait to see your take on Israel here, for sure. Someday, if possible, I'd really love to go to Israel myself. But that probably won't happen, I think, in this life, unfortunately, unless God makes it possible for me to do so somehow. CD out.

I'll be honest, working with the Dominican set has left me not entirely satisfied with the jersey logos being identical to the cap logos... and I seem to have gained an inspiration from Australia that could stick... just have to see how well it plays out for the others.



Maybe more like soccer with hats?

I'm not dead, yet...


Got a hold of some nice templates, so everything is being reworked in Photoshop.



Might need to play around with the crest colors still... but I think it's good progress.

Done some more work today, updated the first post with new previews. Might need some minor touch-ups on the crest outlining and I'll probably change the secondary Colombian cap to red or something (and maybe rework the Taiwan secondary as well while I'm at it). I'll wait to update the download folder when it's actually ready to download.

Hope this poster's okay, at least, for sure. Hasn't been on for a good while. This is good work so far here, I think. CD out.
