  1. I was thinking the same thing: there's something cat-like about the dog's face. I realize that perception of the image is influenced by the ears too (as they stick up like a cat's), but you've illustrated what a Boston Terrier's ears look like. So it must be something to do with the mouth; fixing that to make it look less feline will then make the ears not appear so feline either. Closing the mouth and/or extending the upper lips down a bit might help de-cat the terrier's face a bit?
  2. The new one is eh.... OK, but the "old" one is far more readable.
  3. If you decide to go multicolored, #1 is your best bet. #6 is alright as well, but #1 adds more red, which makes it look like it belongs.
  4. While I'm not the biggest NBA fan, I wouldn't have qualms with seeing a game between teams wearing any of these uniforms. They look good; they're fairly conservative; and they're all different (so far). Nicely done.
  5. Absolutely correct. Entirely unique; still looks like the Cowboys.
  6. I'd wear it. Nicely done!
  7. The perspective on the knight's hand is so weird. Is the sword bendy or what?
  8. Wait. That happened in Vegas. Was I not supposed to mention that?
  9. I have stayed there before! $46/night is about right considering the accommodations. Haha.
  10. I just enjoy the kid yelling "roll it please!" "can we please roll it?" into the nothingness before the video failed again. At least he's polite.
  11. Certainly far better than what they have now.
  12. OK, so I took that 8 and made the rest of the set just to see what it looks like. I figured I'd post it. Ha.
  13. Interesting. I would think it would be more aesthetically pleasing to just mirror the angles from the opposite sides and have symmetry (excuse the rough trace): Two things with that though: 1) I guess it comes down to taste, and I personally prefer symmetry along the vertical axis when comes to numbers like 8. 2) Technically, those angles wouldn't be 18 and 34 degrees, respectively, if the 8 (and other numbers) had the notches where they currently simply have 90 degree corners. They'd be 162 degrees and 146 degrees, respectively.
  14. While I agree that there are strong similarities, I don't think the designers at Nike would just open an .ai file of Oregon State's numbers and change the angles of the notches to the certain degree values and call it complete. While I think they make some questionable choices on how the final numbers look, I do appreciate the thought behind the designs. I would presume each set is built from scratch. After looking at several of these number sets, what I want to know is what Nike's obsession with not "notching" the upper right and lower left corners of numbers like 8 or 2 is.
  15. @DC in Da House w/o a Doubt @JosiahWVU You guys going to be there? It's a True Blue game, so wear blue if you are! I don't understand Nike's obsession with making oddly modified sets of numbers. Some really work with the theme (like the Vikings' numbers), and then others are just flat-out well-designed (like North Carolina's current set). But why do Wake Forest's look the way they do (the 8s are asymmetrical vertically, but are rotationally symmetric; why)? Why do OU's have all those little points? I presume there's a design-related reason for all of them (like WVU's numbers meant to resemble pick axes). Or is it just to reduce IP duplication/theft by counterfeiters? It seems like Nike gets a good idea for what they want a set of numbers to look like, then they push them just over the line into "Hey, I'm just going to add some random shapes to these numbers to make them look extra cool!" territory. Maybe that's just gripe-y on my part, and it comes down to taste. But so much of the customer numbers they do just make me ask "why?"
