    They don't look anything like the Argonauts other than the colors used. The designs are significantly different on every piece of the uniform. That being said - you could do a lot worse than looking like the Argonauts - had they simply ripped them off, they'd have looked great.

    Wearing 42 is a nice tribute, but the blackface is really inappropriate, isn't it?

    dolphins numbers are so damn bad, when im cropping photos to use in designs, i purposefully try to hide the numbers as much as possible. especially the 2....

    It just sounds like you’re being overly pedantic over what AH meant by “old font.” Teams usually use the same font across their entire uniform at a single time, so when they change the font of the number on the jersey (which is the most notable spot for a font to be used) but not the tiny one on the helmet (which is barely noticeable), the trained eye would certainly read that the helmet is stuck using the “old font” while the jerseys get the “current font.” Attempting to challenge that was a confusing move and just made things weird.

    Everyone is tired of it at this point. @Brown1 and @andrewharrington -- knock off the bickering NOW, or these threads are getting shut down. And everyone else, stop putting in your two cents or your armchair analysis; it's only dragging things out. Back to the Dolphins.

    Other than the angry mob treatment of new people who show up with “information from a source,” I think many would agree this is more or less a “get what you give” type of community.

    You've got to take step back from these and ask yourself if they're realistic. Yes, I get that they're concepts, but there has to be an element of realism there, i.e. If these teams unveiled these uniforms tomorrow, would they get a positive reaction from fans and on these boards? The Atlanta one started out OK; I see where you were going in bringing the volt to the forefront. But you've got to move the number out of the logo as it's illegible there, and maybe some black on the shorts to balance things out. But adding in random red diamonds an lines is not the way to go. If you added red along lines you'd already established, something might work. The Nets set is not good. You say put down a diamond and thought, "That looks good"? OK, sure, a diamond could be a design element to work in, but just slapping big, random diamonds around is not the way to do that. The Nets have never had diamonds on their uniforms before, and nothing in their identity really leans toward diamonds or really even sharp angles, so it's very jarring. It could work if the diamonds were maybe smaller and subtler. And the number on the front of the shorts certainly breaks convention, but it's redundant and, as some have said, unflattering. The Heat set also needs work. I get the Miami Vice idea, but it's pretty cliche by now. Stick with either "MIAMI" or "HEAT" on the front; both clutters it up too much. And right now, the front number is the same colour and size and has the same drop shadow as the word HEAT, so it blends into that. Plus, the 3 is wedged pretty tightly in there now, so what happens with guys who wear double digit numbers like 42 or 55? The drop shadows are too far away from the initial letters, leaving too much white space in between. The sun on the back detracts from the number on the back, again by being in the same style, and could lead to issues identifying players; that number should be the main graphic element on the back of the jersey. And the skyline is a nice idea, but if that is what Miami's skyline actually looks like, then it's too spread out to really work. And, like the Hawks set, you need some more white on the shorts to balance everything out. Sorry if that seems harsh or like a whole lot at once. But if you're serious about this and about getting better, I think these things will help you improve both these concepts and any others you do in the future.

    Thanks for the support! Next up we have the San Diego Padres! The Padres are probably the most radically changed of any team in the series. I decided to go all-in on their early '80s color scheme with brown replacing navy and orange used as an accent color. Big thanks to @Carolingian Steamroller for helping reproduce the cap logo. Speaking of which, any Padres fans know the significance of the three stripes on either side of the SD? C&C appreciated, and the Giants are up next!

    That was my first reaction to the suggestion that the 1 and 7 were specially designed. They're arguably the worst in the set - especitally the 7. I don't buy for a second that an NFL team would design a font or any aspect of a uniform around a specific player, considering careers can be over in a flash, players can decline overnight, or (at least in 2018) your star player can be charged with PED use or even arrested before you know it. Regarding the 0 - that number violates the overall principle of the design, which is that the corners on the top left side are round while they're angled on the right. It's ironic that the 0 and 8 probably look the best, and they're the two that violate the rules.

    ***EDITED*** Okay, I’ve decided to turn this into a thread to post my NFL concepts. Rather than have individual ones, I figured I would post them here in the thread I already have. I don’t know how many teams I’ll do and I won’t promise anything about getting all 32 done, but I know I have a few off the top of my head that I have some sort of idea for. I’ll stick to one helmet for every team, though switching out decals/facemasks is allowed, and I’ll give each team a home and road, with most getting an alternate jersey. Typically, teams will have 3 pairs of pants, in the same colors as the jerseys, but there will be cases of only one or two pairs. A lot of them will be more modern designs, but not over the top. Think Minnesota Vikings as an example. Modern but clean. Not Tampa Bay. Never go full Tampa Bay. Feedback is always appreciated, it helps me improve and gives a better product to show you guys, just make sure any criticism is constructive and provides me something to use. Thanks for looking! ***End of the Edit*** *Original Post* So, being a Denver Broncos fan, I’ve seen the team’s uniforms plenty of times over the years and, in my opinion, I’d actually consider calling them a modern classic (being the first revolutionary design and lasting 20+ years) and honestly doubt they’ll ever change, considering the three Super Bowls were won in them. But they aren’t perfect, so I decided I’d take a swing at them. It seems like the popular thing to do with Denver is to simply recolor the Elway-era to the modern navy (essentially the color-rush look), and that style heavily inspired my design as well, but I attempted a more modern twist on it by using the current helmet stripes. If that seems confusing, I apologize, but you’ll see what I mean. Colors: Same orange, but the blue is a mix of navy and royal blue, creating a dark-royal, light navy shade never used in team history Helmet: The helmet is the same as the current altered to the new blue and a change to the stripe. I kept the basis of the current stripe, but took the two outer stripes and made them white, a nod to the Elway helmet stripes. For the facemask, I decided on orange. I’m not usually a fan of same color masks and helmets and leaving it white seemed.. awkward, so I went orange. (disclaimer: the facemask is one part of the uniform I had some second thoughts about) Jerseys: Kept the current rotation: orange primary, white away, blue alternate. I took the helmet striping and applied it to the sleeves, starting at the front and tapering to the back, colored to match the Elway look. For the numbers, I kept the current font. It’s unique to Denver and, in my opinion, looks quite nice. Pants: Pants come in the same colors as the jerseys, each with the stripes starting at the top, tapering to the bottom. Combinations: The primary home would be orange jerseys with white pants and orange socks, away would be white over orange with blue socks, and the blue jersey would almost always be worn with the white pants. Even though these are the primary combos, others are allowed, though monochrome orange is the only one I’d discourage. Colored pants always have contrasting socks. Now, if you’ve made it this far, here they are:

    The issue is that the two of you are actually having two separate arguments.. AW's argument was referring to the 2's used in the team's official number font, which are not slanted.. Your argument was that they use slanted 2's.. Is it true that they use slanted 2's? Yes.. Is it true that the Penguins' number font does not have a slanted 2? Also, Yes.. So, you are both correctly conveying accurate information in a manner that supports your own version of the argument, so there's no ground to be gained.. I'm as guilty as anyone of nitpicking a small inaccuracy to poke at someone's post, but it's never more than that.. You've stuck to your guns and defended yourself based on the fact that everything you've posted is true, but going around picking fights based on leftover relics in the equipment room is just not good form.. You could've called AW out on his inaccuracy, then graciously bowed out of the argument by playing nice, and we'd all respect you a lot more and admire your knowledge of uniform details.. Currently, it just feels like you're a big fan of "Ha, GOTCHA!" moments.. Which nobody likes..

    Which is troubling, because the 1 and the 7, at least to me, are pretty bad as well. The only number that looks decent on its own is the zero. The 6 and 9 are strange, but they at least follow a logical design parameter and look like they were built to coordinate with each other. It pretty much goes off the rails after that. Regarding “the incident,” (speaking to everyone else), let’s just let that go. I accept that I could have handled that situation better, and I feel bad for contributing to derailing two threads. No one wants to poke that bear again.

    One gripe I have mainly with the new helmet is that the logo looks so much better on a lighter background... What they went with? I knew something looked familiar...

    First, there needs to a numbers on the front. Second, try slowing down on creating the concepts. This concept looks sloppy. It looks like you took the eraser tool to create the side panels. I understand it's your first time making concepts, but if you slow down, you can create great concepts!

    Everyone wearing 42 is an unintentional admission that NOBs and numbers aren't important, and in 2018 are simply for marketing purposes. Maybe when they do this gimmick, they should put the players' real numbers on the sleeve like the Phillies.

    Brown1: Can I give you a piece of advice? I’ve been where you are now. I’ve upset some of the bigger names on this board in the past because I came here acting like I knew everything and that all classic uniforms should go modern. I was wrong and out of place. You’ve got be respectful to other people’s views and learn what they have to stay. Most of the people here are good people even though we may not always agree on all things. It took me a solid year or two to get back into everyone’s good graces and I don’t want that for you. My suggestion would be to agree to disagree and move on. If not you will be an outcast for a very long time.

    It always seemed to me that they took the most care in making sure 1 and 7 looked good because the 2 most important players at the time of the new jersey were Ryan Tannehill "17" and Mike Wallace "11" (their top free agent signing that year) (although they likely had the font set long before Wallace was signed) The jerseys with 1s and 7s always looked best. I didn't notice until just now how bad the 3, 5 and 8 are...

    But not as an active player. That's the point being made. You honor his career as a player, so you take what he wore as a player. Not what he wore that one time in retirement.
