    Los Angeles NFL Brands Discussion

    Regardless of color they need to bring back the traditional bolt patterns for the shoulders and pants first and foremost.

    I think it's the royal helmet. Despite it not matching the rest of the uniform there's something about the darker blue helmet that tones down the throwback look.

    That's my point as well. To clarify I was referring to the element strictly from a garment construction perspective. They basically modified a usc style shoulder insert into a ram's horn which is pretty clever. Does it make design sense? Absolutely not.

    The shoulder horns are a very creative element but they just don't make sense from a ram's perspective...there is simply no need to repeat the helmet horns on the shoulders.

    Alouettes Kick-Off New Era With Revamped Logo, Uniforms

    From a pop culture critique perspective, both logos will be labeled as products of the late 2010's era of design much like how we critique many other logo trends as being byproducts of a particular era that they were designed in. The graphic design pros can split hairs all they want about angles and edges because that's a niche field and part of the profession. I'm ready to preorder that corporate logo retrospective in hardcover highlighting nuances of the unapologetic boldness that took the graphic design world by storm as the late '10s made way into the '20s.

    College Football Uniforms - 2019

    The problem with these is that they are just too damn good looking, they leverage a classic design which would likely have staying power for well over a decade. Designs like this mean less work for nike.

    In case you haven't been paying attention mid-century modern has been a major contemporary design influence for almost 10 years now. You can argue the difference in the minutiae between hard/soft edges all you want but there's a legitimate case to be made that the als logo will be grouped into the design era when everyone was optimizing their logos for ios and VC funding. That's my unapologetically bold take.

    Alouettes Kick-Off New Era With Revamped Logo, Uniforms

    I think the logo was perfectly executed. I really like the design from the pure perspective of graphic design and creative strategy. I also see it as a bit trendy and inorganic which I believe will shorten the shelf life. If this was an expansion team or had they gone with this identity when the franchise was reborn I think it would have more staying power.

    Alouettes Kick-Off New Era With Revamped Logo, Uniforms

    I agree with what you are saying but they went too far and created a generic corporate logo that is reminiscent of a travel app and not a football team. This is much like the dolphins adopting their "premium branding" which stripped all of the character and history out of their logo making it indistinguishable from a south florida travel agency. While the al's logo attempts to bridge the club's history, I don't think it has anywhere near the charm that the retro logos have which will make it bland forgettable in a short amount of time.

    exactly the same contemporary design language...despite being a nice logo it will not age well.

    2019 MLB Changes

    Sales is not the only variable in the equation. It's possible to sell less $ at the register but make more gross profit if the improved profit margin due to reduced material cost is significant enough. Either way it sounds like the product quality was so poor it was rejected outright as inferior by consumers.

    Los Angeles Rams Confirm Throwback Uniforms For Super Bowl

    Screen printing requires flat surfaces (e.g. torso or back) and typically does not print all the way to the edge of fabric which would make for a horrible application. Sublimation might be a decent option for shoulder and sleeve decorations.

    NFL changes 2019

    the nfl50 was f-ing awesome and they should have used it as inspiration because it's bold and classic...instead they opted to be ultra-modern and futuristic, borrowing from this iconic image:
