    "Teal is the heart of the brand" So let's only wear it 3 times. Fans have been screaming for a teal primary and you stick with black because you want to own black? YOU LITERALLY OWN TEAL!!! Why try to "own" something that so many other teams have?

    I've been a long time peruser, occasional poster on these forums for a while now. Over the years, I've seen many great concepts, but there has always been one poster whose concepts I really gravitate towards, Oldschoolvikings. A few weeks ago, I pulled up his NFL Fauxback Thread and saw his 1965 Baltimore Ravens concept. I really love how it captured the essence of 60's design.... One of my hobbies is building football helmets. I liked Oldschool's Ravens helmet concept so much, that I decided to make an actual helmet based on his design for my personal collection. Below is the result... Big thanks to Oldschoolvikings for the inspiration and coming up with this design. Keep up the great concepts......I love 'em!

    Actually, word from Nike is that they’ll be the first team in the league to have the LeBron logo in place of the swoosh...

    The Yotes have a beautiful set of jerseys right now, but they could be immensely improved with a redone color scheme and a reincorporation of their old Kachina patterns. This rebrand does both of those.

    Went to the best source, our old friend Donovan/Colorwerx's site. They did change over time, three different burgundys since 1972, and it is darker now:

    I'm really happy for CP3. After 13 years in the league, he's finally going to be playing in a Conference Finals series. But man, Golden State looks as unstoppable as they were last year with everyone healthy now. As for the Jazz and Pels, both teams had great runs this year and the fans should be very proud.

    It’s the 5:30 mark. That was the owner who is worth a few billion dollars. He’s also correct in saying the two toned helmet was a competitive disadvantage. Yea that part made zero sense. If teal is the heart of the brand, why the hell isn’t it even used on the away uniforms?

    Ok, here are some uniform ideas I had. Caps are the same as the original Milwaukee ones, with the simple M and a red bill. I removed the piping from the center of the uniform and reduced outlines on the tomahawk to decrease clutter in the center of the shirt. I kept the piping on the sleeves, neck, and pants. The Away uniform has the Braves script again because I felt a script "Milwaukee" wouldn't fit as well. Stripes return to the socks. I was going to do stirrups but ultimately decided against it. Home alt sees the new logo on the chest, and the road alt is a blue version of the home and road with a new Indian head cap. I'd appreciate any C&C.

    I think this explains it as much as the helmet graphic concept. Even many of the logos that predate helmet logos or were never used as helmet logos tend to face to the right (though the Eagles logo was later reversed during the Randall Cunningham era). I can safely say that I have never looked at a right-facing chest logo and thought "My goodness, it looks like the logo is sniffing that guy's armpit!"

    I'm really psyched to see Warriors-Rockets. I haven't watched any Warriors games this postseason since Curry came back largely because of time difference, but I did watch Houston last night and Chris Paul looked unstoppable. Two immovable objects colliding. This should be fun.

    Okay everyone, I’m back! Finals week is over and I finished moving out of my dorm and back home over the weekend, so I officially have nothing to do except work on drawing stuff. And apply for jobs, but who really needs money? JK, but in all seriousness, how this goes over the summer will greatly depend on what hours I get and whet job I get, so if something comes up, I’ll make sure to post here to let everyone know. Okay, enough with that, onto the team: Cleveland Browns So, chrome brown helmets with a ton of unnecessary grey, right? Of course not, this is the Browns, how crazy can it really get? This was one where I hit a dramatic realization— I never hated the new Browns’ uniforms until I did this. I didn’t love them, but I didn’t hate them like others on here did. Really evaluating them, trying to make alterations really showed off the flaws. Orange numbers, contrast stitches, wordmarks, etc. It’s a mess when you truly evaluate how it all looks. Helmet: No changes. None. Plain orange, one white stripe with two outer brown stripes. I kept the brown mask. I like it. White seems like it sticks out too much and grey doesn’t seem like it fits well with a “modern” design—full disclosure, this is modern for the Browns, but wouldn’t be a modern design anywhere else. Jerseys: I ended up going with brown, white and orange. I didn’t know if I should have an orange jersey, for some reason, I just never felt like it was necessary when I was designing it despite how I’ve always loved them having an orange jersey. The jerseys use the new striping pattern from the recent redesign, but it’s limited to the sleeve caps—no extension to the chest. The giant Cleveland is eliminated from the front. They’re a professional team, believe it or not, and a chest wordmark seems too collegiate or high school for an NFL team. The numbers— remember when I said I wanted to keep the Jags new font on a team that fit it better?— the Browns jerseys use the “Modern Block” font the Jags used on their last revamp. It fit a more classic team like Cleveland better in my mind. No outlines are one the primary jerseys, another realization I had on the Browns is that number outlines don’t always work, especially on a traditional team like Cleveland, but on the alternate orange jersey, I added not only an outline, but a drop shadow as well. It doesn’t align with the other jerseys, but there is precedent for the orange jersey having drop shadows when the others didn’t. Pants: Only white and orange. I wanted to include brown, but it just didn’t feel like it worked in any rough drafts. They don’t have diarrhea Browns running down the leg. How could anyone think that was a good idea? The stripes have been brought all the way to the bottom of the pants, but that’s about it for changes. Combinations: Brown jersey is the home and white is the away with orange serving as the alternate. The pants don’t really have a primary designation. The only restriction is that orange pants shouldn’t be worn with the orange jersey to avoid orange overload. As you can see, I added a small personal logo. I've seen others do it to prevent someone claiming their work as their own and I also thought it looked more professional to include it, so I used one I came up with a few years ago. I guess that's that, so let me know what you think!

    As much as I like the Brewers' identity, I am fascinated by the history of the Milwaukee Braves, and wish they could have stayed around for longer. This is my concept for a secondary logo that could be used by the team in place of the racist or ugly secondaries they've had in the past. Any C&C would be greatly appreciated!

    Unpopular opinion: Love that Jets logo. It’s the first thing you’d think of when someone thinks planes, and it works brilliantly due to being so uncomplicated. Fix the shape and the horizontal stabilizers a little and it would be perfect. Maybe even add a small NY on the tail

    "We have three players that should be in the Hall of Fame; Tony Boselli, Fred Taylor, and Jimmy Smith." He is not wrong. I never watched the Titans video or the Fins' one, but the lack of marketing speak in the first five minutes is nice.

    AAF Atlanta has a name, and a coach! April 9, 2019-- Atlanta, GA. In a much anticipated press conference held at Georgia State University Stadium, the AAF unveiled the identity, uniforms and head coach of their 2020 expansion franchise. The Atlanta Pride will take the field at the 25,000 seat stadium which used to be home to the Atlanta Braves. They will do so under the leadership of former Tampa Bay Bucc's head coach and current Atlanta Falcons Assistant Head Coach Raheem Morris. Morris, who appeared at the podium along with league CEO Charlie Ebersol, Director of Football Operations Bill Polian and former Falcons players Michael Vick, Tony Gonzalez and Jesse Tuggle, spoke about the great football tradition of Atlanta and the state of Georgia and expressed his excitement about the prospects of spring football in Atlanta. The team then unveiled their logo, a roaring lion, and their uniforms, a combination of deep maroon, bright orange and athletic gold (yellow). While some drew comparisions to the Virginia Tech Hokies, the running joke quickly became one about how the team must be sponsored by Reese's Cups due to the distinctive color combination. The deep marroon does look quite a bit like a dark brown in the lighting of the media interview room, but once on the field it is expected to show as more of a maroon than a brown. The team revealed only their primary uniform, however it is expected that with the expansion to 10 teams in 2020 the AAF will move to having a home and a clash uniform for each team, even allowing each team to have a secondary helmet to accompany each look. Coach Morris finished up the press conference by announcing that he was working with all 3 former falcons at the podium today to ensure that each has a role to play with his franchise. Whether that means a spot on the coaching staff or in the player relations office for the team is still unknown. In his final words, Charlie Ebersol thanked the gathered media and fans and announced that tomorrow the league would be in Tucson to reveal the 10th franchise. Logo note: This logo is heavily influenced by 3 lion-head logos which I found as I was researching different options. You will recognize elements from all three if you have a keen eye. The three are images (searchable on Google) designed by Shmart Studio, Salavat Bulatov and RedPin (on 99Designs). While I feel that the combination of elements from all 3 created a unique logo, I do not believe it is fair to call it original, it is more a combination of previous designs than an original design (and I suppose I should also mention that the idea for the tongue is, of course, from the Jacksonville Jaguars, though I did not make this one teal, as if the lion had been eating a blue raspberry FunDip candy).

    Prior to PA and Allegheny County capitulating on Heinz Field, the Steelers rather subtly mentioned they'd look to relocate somewhere 'bigger' as Pittsburgh is always labeled a 'small market'. I don't think it ever went beyond an idle threat, but they quite clearly implied that 'Cleveland' could happen again if they didn't get a new stadium. The Browns being a team nobody thought would move put the fear of god into almost every other market to build a new stadium or lose their NFL team. And with wide-open LA, it was an easy threat to make.

    Shad may be a billionaire, but it's fairly apparent from this video that he doesn't know a ton about football. I played and I now coach, and yes, there are slight cues...but whoever told him about the color of the helmet and turning of the head thing? Bro..... Smart people though put smarter people around them. He hired Coughlin back, and that's paying off.

    Around 6:30 the guy is saying the two tone helmet let players see when Jaguars heads were turning on field. Followed by this idea that all black is the most competitive “camo” for a helmet one could have. Unreal!

    I think I might be the only person who prefers the curly W to the DC logo. Attractive and historically relevant, even if resembling Walgreens a little too much. The curly W hat paired with the "Nationals" script on the home would be perfect.

    After an admitted swing-and-miss on the Eagles, I’m back with the Jacksonville Jaguars. They recently redesigned their uniforms and, personally, I like them. They aren’t perfect and could use some gold, but they’re solid. However, this is a concept series, so I did my own take on what I’d do if I was given the chance to design the Jags. Helmet: A solid satin black helmet with the logo on the side. I considered a stripe, but it didn’t look right, the Jags have never had a helmet stripe and, honestly, a solid black helmet is perfect for them. One new element I used here which has never been used in team history is a teal facemask. I felt it added just enough pop without being too distracting. Jerseys: Three jerseys in three colors: teal, black, and white with the primary home being (drumroll)… teal! That’s gotta be obvious, right? How they can’t get that right is beyond me. As for the design, I wanted something unique, but without using jaguar spots, which in my opinion, look terrible on any concept I’ve seen with them. I looked at the leaks from a while back that were proven false and built off those stripes, but used a three color pattern and extended them further, slightly past the sleeve caps and a couple inches onto the chest. For the number font, I struggled. I love both the new font and the now-old font. In the end, I decided there was another team that could use the new font and it would fit their brand better, so I used the old font on the Jags’ numbers. Pants: Again, three colors, black, white, teal. The stripes from the jerseys are carried onto the pants, adjusted as needed. Not much else to say about the pants, they’re pretty simple to describe. Combinations: Primary home would be teal over black, road would be white over black, but all pants are interchangeable with all jerseys. Teal socks are used with the black pants and white pants, black socks with the teal pants and can be worn when the black jersey is worn with white pants. In my mind I would prefer them to wear white pants very sparingly, maybe a couple early season games in high temperatures, but primarily the black and teal pants should be used. And the uniforms in action, featuring Jalen Ramsey, Yannick Ngakoue, Leonard Fournette, and the BOAT (Best of all time), Blake Bortles: As for the process/progression pictures, I'll likely have that up sometime this afternoon. Thanks for looking, don't hesitate to let me know what you think!
