    Well like I said in the first post, I can really only redesign teams whose logo makes use of text or a letterform, but fortunately every team has at some point or another in their history used some sort of letter-based logo, so while I won't be doing every teams primary logo, every team will still be involved in some way. The only team I have to reach for a bit is Carolina, where I'll need to use their not often seen (and possibly obsolete) wordmark. Thanks for all the feedback guys! Let's move on with the next installment in the series by ruining enriching yet another classic look.

    I made a version of this last year but found myself unsatisfied with what I'd done. Here's an update. Enjoy! Open in a new tab to see in full.

    I'm sure most of you are aware of the reputation that Comic Sans has in the design community, but for those who are unaware, it's regarded as one of the worst, most amateur fonts you can use. I'm sure less of you are aware of its usage in memes and s**tposting, often being used ironically to create humor by intentionally using it to mock it. With my combined interest in both of those, I one day had the bright idea of redesigning NHL logos that make use of text or a letterform, but use Comic Sans. Let's start out with a bang.

    Remember back in December when I spoke with a local Jacksonville retailer? I went and spoke to a different location of the same company, and I've got a lot more details to share. Teal and black will undoubtedly be emphasized over anything else. Gold is not gone entirely, but in little use I showed a photo of the leaks and they immediately said that's not what they saw. They saw a design about a month ago, but has seen many different editions since. But they were adamant the leak was not correct. I got the impression the logo is not changing, so no snow leopard uniforms. The gold jerseys are just about gone. Don't think Jacksonville nor the retailers were fond of them. They sold terribly. This is the craziest of them: Not this upcoming season, but eventually apparently, the Jaguars will have throwback uniforms. They specifically mentioned the full body sleeve logo, so the original uniforms could very well be back for a game or two in the coming seasons. Never thought we'd see that. They truly believe Coughlin will keep simple, a la the Giants. Nothing too crazy. I ended up spending an hour talking with the person, with the uniform stuff the minority of what was discussed.

    Completely disagree. The Saints' white pants are leaps and bounds better than the black leotard pants they wear much too often.

    Thats the best jersey they have right now. Their loopy, italic cap logo is too unbalanced to anchor a jersey.

    I know that brand loyalty is generally frowned upon, but Adidas' on field product looks worse than Nike or Under Armor every single time. The fit is bad, but the material is the worse. Pair that with skewed design elements and it's just a cheap look.

    Here's a mashup of the initials from the BC Lions' primary logo combined with the unused Jacksonville Jaguars logo. I always thought for some reason, that unused Jags logo could have still been used by one of the other cat teams in pro football. C&C Welcome.

    This off season I am going to focus my design hobby on getting better at jersey swaps and while they aren't necessarily designs, I feel this is still a solid place to post. First Up: Tyrann Mathieu to the Texans - Typically I struggle with the facemask/Helmet area but really took time on this one and feel like I nailed it down into the realm of reality. Feedback is welcomed and wanted!

    Safe assumption. When A's do throwback games, that element of design they always make sure is kept.

    To be completely honest, some good designs have come from the color rush. I just hated how the entire uniform HAD to be the same color, i.e. Atlanta had a good red jersey, but the red pants RUINED the look.

    Hey everyone, welcome to my first post! I've been visiting these boards for a while now, I found them around the time the Buccaneers unveiled their new uniforms and finally registered a few months back and now after all that time I've finally decided to start contributing lol. Now to the concept. First off, I'm not great with computers. These are hand drawn. If that's a turn off for you, I apologize, but you can feel free to leave if that's not what you like. The background on this is simple, I'm a freshman at UNO and I love football, but we don't have a team. I got bored during lecture in class and instead of taking notes, I started doodling (like a good student) and came up with a helmet I kinda liked and later designed a full uniform around it. The helmet is red and features the horns of the maverick logo on the sides instead of a logo, similar to how the Eagles use the wings. The jersey's sleeves have a traditional style striping, but with a modern twist in the word mark featured in the middle stripe, heavily inspired by the Detroit Lions. The number font is the same one used across all sports. The pants are red and have the same striping pattern as the jersey, minus the word mark. On the other side, I designed a uniform for Creighton, another school in town without football, simply for the sake of creating a hypothetical "Battle of Omaha" rivalry series. For Creighton, I used an all-white uniform. The top of the Jay logo is used on the sleeve caps and at the top of the pant stripes. the logo transitions into the silver-navy-royal-navy-silver stripe featured on the pants and helmets. Without further ado, here they are:

    Our long national nightmare is over. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2769835-thursday-night-football-color-rush-alternate-uniforms-reportedly-going-away Say goodbye to Color Rush uniforms on Thursday nights this coming fall. Bill Wanger of Fox Sports said Tuesday the NFL plans to scrap the alternate uniforms it used during Thursday Night Football telecasts beginning with the 2018 season, per Jason Barrett of Barrett Sports Media. However, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reported the Color Rush uniforms won't be going away completely. They just "might not be exclusive to Thursday nights anymore," sources told him. This shouldn't come as a huge surprise to anyone. In December, the NFL said it was allowing teams to have "more flexibility" with their Thursday night uniforms, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, which effectively ended the Color Rush push. The polarizing Color Rush uniforms began rolling out in 2015. Some fans delighted in the alternate offerings, while others were put off by the bright colors. In one notable mishap, a Color Rush game between the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills proved to be a mess for those with red-green colorblindness. That should no longer be an issue now that Fox is taking over Thursday games.

    Glad you like it! Now to the other side of town with the New York Yankees! For the Bronx Bombers, I decided to use their excellent secondary logo in place of the more generic wordmark logo they actually used. I also gave them a contrasting cap bill and made the jersey numbers white instead of gray--I figure if any team can break the rule, it's the 27-time World Series champions. C&C appreciated! The A's will be up tomorrow!

    Teams better be wearing throwbacks multiple times in 2019 to go along with the 100th anniversary. Just like the 75th anniversary. I would like each team to have a home and away throwback like they did for the AFL 50th anniversary. It would be cool if they wore each at least twice.

    The angle of the script, which has been discussed a lot, is the only weird thing about these jerseys. But the script is a billion times better than the W, especially when the sleeve patch on all the jerseys is a W in a roundel.

    The number set reminds me a lot of a slightly modified version of the Jaguars number set. I like the idea of basing the set around the 8, like the 2 and the 3 are. The 1, 4,5,6,7,9 all look out of place IMO. The concept set I've been working on tries to remedy this by basing the whole set around the 8, which I feel looks "Greek" or "Chiseled". I've never really created my own number set from scratch and really don't have that much knowledge of fonts so this is all my opinion on what would look good. Andrewharrington brought up a few good points about my redesign and from other comments I'm seeing that with creating a font or number set less can be more. I agree that straight up block numbers would look good on any design but if every team had block numbers it would be boring IMO. As pointed out custom fonts can look good, but there is a fine line between to much and not enough. I'm finding that as this concept evolves I'm lessening the custom elements to not distract so much from the shape of the numbers themselves and making the custom elements more uniform between the numerals. I know this isn't a concept thread but I might as well finish what I started. Here is my last attempt at fixing this number set. IMO this is as far as I'm going to take it and like the way it turned out. Changes made: Thickened the weight and based the all the numbers off the 8. Decreased the size of the points on the ends and moved them to the center of the stroke and tried to match them to the shape made by the points in the 8. Got rid of the "Tennessee" inspired points on the right side of the numbers. Moved the center point of the middle bars on the 5,6,9 (while asymmetrical it makes them look less blocky and more like their respective numerals). For aesthetic purposes the thin middle lines are there to give it a beveled look without going full bevel (Could be used without though). Top set is their current set, the rest are my changes. What it might look like on the jersey. And here is one more idea using the same shape end points as the actual numbers. Anyways I'll let you guys get back to discussing these monstrosities of uniforms. I like the ideas behind the uniform but I feel most of it it was poorly executed. With some tweaking the whole uniform redesign could have been something way better.

    Might be biased since I am a Die Hard Ravens fan but... "The Baltimore Ravens" has to be one of the coolest team names in all of sports. I love all the work they have done to the teams headquarters to give it a nice gothic theme-

    I'm guessing it's in five segments for five players? The segmented snake used to represent different colonies, but that's not really applicable here. I'm just kinda shocked that ^^^^ will be the center court logo for the playoffs.

    LA will have a new look, Long Island will have a new alternate jersey, and the league will announce a new uniform deal. There will also be an update on the New Orleans situation, and the host of the 2004 World Hockey Challenge will be named among other things. I'm still having a tough time getting the Wizards' new logo right though so it'll probably come after the off-season post.

    Up next: Minnesota If the mothership is to be trusted, and why shouldn't it be, then the Twins have a lot of uniforms. Too many uniforms for my liking. Also I am not a fan of the gold they use. Yes it separates them from all the other R/W/B teams but I just don't think that gold fits them. As I was designing these, I came across the powder blue era Twins, and that's when I got the idea to use double blue again. Plus in my head it makes sense because they play in Minnesota which is the Land of A Lot of Lakes and blue = water. Thats as close to NikeSpeak as I want to get . Hats - Hats, hats, hats. There's a lot of hats. The main hat is the navy/navy with the TC logo, and so is the matching helmet. The alternate hat is navy/red with the resurrected M-swoosh logo on the front. Matching helmet as well. BP hats are red/navy with TC logo and white front panel with the M logo. I'm not sure if I'd let those into the normal rotation. Jerseys - So I don't like the Twins in pinstripes. That's just me. I don't think it fits them. I like the new non-pinned home jersey and used those as the base. I borrowed the striping from the powder blue era and made them a little bigger. State outline with the two players is on the right sleeve on all jerseys. Drop shadowed numbers and scripts on all jerseys. Pants - White and powder blue pants. I considered a navy blue set, but it didn't fit so they hit the scrap heap. Triple stripe down the side of the pants. Socks have the jersey stripe on them. C&C welcome!

    And yet the color rush look was perhaps the best the Rams have looked since they came home.

    The Jaguars need gold to look great. Simply teal and black is too cold and dated looking to me. Outside of that, I really hope that the "distinctive" part of that tweet really shows through in the uniforms. That will be the key. Most Jaguars fans clearly want something more reserved, I just hope that they don't take it too far like those leaks may lead us to believe.

    Me, too. However, at least it was confined to games I largely didn't care about. With the various parts of the Color Rush uniforms still out there, my concern is we'll see them mixed into rotations in bad ways. Yup... witness the people who wistfully bring up baseball's TATC monstrosities. Whereas I want to see the Rams in yellow at least 8 times a year.
