    it wont be a big unveiling event. the day it comes out, there wont be much to it besides a page you can view the old and new. we felt like that was needed so when the changes are spotted there no confusion about it. since this is not a “new uniform” it wont be a big deal

    Exactly. It’s objectively bad for the lettering style to be so similar, but slightly different, and as you stated, the N and R are a bit awkward at the moment. The new monogram looks great, though. Players generally enjoy the fit, so I’m not sure what you mean by “bad” here. While I didn’t enjoy the past two iterations of the patterning, the material itself is glorious in hand; springy, yet sturdy and substantial. Have you ever felt it? Lastly, while the distortion leaves much to be desired on film numbers, proper twill numbers look fine.

    It's weird how both the hat and the jersey now look like cheap, bootleg, knock offs.... so bad and a double fail which is actually hard to do...

    Also, the Spurs look to (finally) be somewhat embracing the fiesta colors again, as their Playoff warmup shirts feature them, and they got noted sneaker customizer Jake Danklefs to create special fiesta-themed kicks for all of the players for today’s game: http://www.nicekicks.com/dank-customs-outfits-entire-spurs-squad/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

    They just need to re-emphasize orange on the uniforms. Its absence is really conspicuous and makes them look like some generic aqua team, not the Dolphins.

    The fact that they still use their old numbers for their helmet decals is wack, but asked to describe “the Penguins numbers,” 99 out of 100 are going to look at the jersey, not the helmet decals.

    Yeah, the mix of round and sharp corners just doesn't look right at all. This is an easy fix too.

    Not exactly. It’s more because the N is like 1.5 times wider than all the other letters and has no inside serifs, making it feel very open and airy compared to the others.

    I would have preferred that they use the previous font on their throwback jerseys, just to separate them a little bit from the Lemieux set. IIRC the only number that was a little weird was the 7, but it was still fine. There's no excuse for allowing that Dolphins number set to make it to production. None. Anyone with the judgement to green-light that shouldn't have a job in the design industry, unless the team was like "no no no no no - we want THAT one!", and pointed to a rough sketch that someone threw on the floor.

    As a follow-up to my previous post -- the void in the N and R makes them look out of place to me. It seems like they just shaved those letters for the sole purpose of making a unique typeface. A couple tweaks to try to make this set look more cohesive --

    CHICAGO BEARS Really not much to say on this one. With modern jersey templates shoulder stripes seem like they can work a lot more than forcing them into a sleeve, so that's the goal here. Also, big changes to the helmet. The C logo is simplified to be one color at all times and is skinny (I like it that way). GSH has been moved to the helmet bumper.

    I’m gonna rain on your parade here, but the Knicks did all the things you just mentioned, plus some. They did the following: Updated primary mark Replaced token with basketball Redesigned uniforms Changed uniform lettering Not to to mention the complete lack of care in refining the weight, composition, and/or proportions of the numerals. Look at the tiny center strokes on the 3 and 8, which are exacerbated by the ultra deep cuts on the sides, the 7 looks like it’s about to tip over, the serif on the 1 is the size of a planet, the inside angle of the 4 is shallower than the outside, the overhanging terminals on the 2, 3, 5, 6, and 9 are all different lengths, and I could probably go on. This is truly a mess. Pittsburgh does not have a slanted 2. Edmonton, Buffalo, Vancouver, Minnesota, Calgary, Philadelphia, Montréal, Toronto, Boston, Arizona, Tampa Bay, Carolina, Colorado, Los Angeles, Washington, and Winnipeg do, though.

    I’m still in shock as to how much the Tigers downgraded this past offseason. The enlarged “D” on the cap looks like a really bad knockoff and the cap “D” on the chest looks so awful. To me, they went from best look in the majors to...well, really not. Congrats on being the new best looking team in baseball, Toronto!

    Recently mildly triggered by the Lincoln Saltdogs headscratcher of a logo change, whose spiffy new dog enjoys maniacally staring into my soul, I got to wondering what some of the worst brand changes ever have been. And watching the Sox play the lowly Marlins I was reminded of this now infamous downgrade: What are some of your (least) favorites?

    Really? As a kid it drove me nuts that some teams actually used both styles in the same season! I had a mid 80s Sixers team photo where some players had horizontal and some diagonal. I HATED the Bills uniforms in the Super Bowls because of their slanted 2 (but still rooted for them because they were against Eagles rivals in all games.) I HATED Champion teams even more because of the curved 7. HOw the hell do you get a curved 7 out of an otherwise block-ish font? I accepted the slanted 2 in hockey because I justified it as being a "faster" font than its boxier brother.

    If it was a logo, I might agree, but for a random letter in the middle of a word, not so much. Uniqueness is important, but it’s not a principle of design and should never trump the actual principles. Sacrificing proper aesthetics and/or formal composition to make something more unique is a net negative, in my opinion. You have to find a way to do it without disrupting the rhythm, the unity, the proportion, the balance, etc. The N is unintentionally the focal point of that wordmark.

    When I first started watching sports in the late 70's, I was confused why Seattle would play Washington, shouldn't they be friends (I was around 7 or 8 at the time). Someone had to explain to me that Washington had nothing to do with the state and was a separate city and I had been there before (which made it more embarrassing to me).

    Where to begin... The biggest eyesore to me is the weird mix of rounded corners and squared corners. Just so random... it seems to be one of those examples of a design being created just because you can.

    When Adidas took over the CFL uniforms in 2016, they hit home runs with a few, most notably the Toronto Argonauts and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Unfortunately there were a few real duds like Montreal and Calgary. One thing I really dislike is that so many teams use the same template with the arm striping (BC, Calgary, Sask, Ottawa) and side panels (Calgary, Sask, Ottawa). When will this idiotic trend go away! My first submission is Montreal. Right now they possibly have the worst uniform design of all time, especially combined with a really bad cartoon logo. My fix here is pretty simple: new logo with clean design based on their glory days in the 70's. To me this seems like a real easy fix.

    Um no. I tried to explain to you that it’s freaking common sense to assume that you’re talking about the uniform numbers when you say “(insert team here)’s numbers” while you spent a day roasting me for not specifying *uniform* numbers.

    I can safely I have never taken this level of notice of the shape of the Number 2 in block fonts. I've never even paid much attention to it. And, yes, I know exactly what this place is all about.

    But the Yankees don't transcend New York! People buy Yankee hats because they say "NY" on them! The fact that they're from New York underpins their marketing success as much as anything. What you're arguing for with "The Angels" is a team that belongs to everyone and no one and only by necessity of the laws of physics plays its home games in a discrete location. That's not how we do sports here and it never will be.

    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!
