    NFL 2018 changes

    this is basically how i feel as well. the long standing uniforms of the Raiders or PSU are able to be long standing classic because they’ve never looked dated or out of style, they’ve never had numbers that were hard to read (maybe Oaklands silver on white) so everything works well even as uniform and helmet design evolves. the Jaguars are not trying to steal history or place themselves into an era they dont belong, their uniforms are built on the same design principles as those others. when you have such a unique color as their teal, you dont need much more, so they can take a very simple approach to their design. and theres a “work clothes” look to them that makes you think they might have more in common with Oakland and NY Giants than the Seahawks or Titans. thats also the connotations they’d like to receive.

    that has certainly been the case since 2015 in CFB, as Nike started that swing. they NFL teams keep running with their dreams of having a 2010 Pro Combat uniform, but eventually, they will come around as well.

    something i noticed last night that was driving me nuts. i think the edge of the numbers on the Dolphins unis were reflecting the stadium lights and creating a really strong highlight along the edge of the numbers. on tv, it looked like the numbers were outlined in white. are there any other examples of this? ive not noticed before but its maddening i edited this photo last night and cropped it this way to bring up this topic here. like, thats how much it was bothering me.

    both colors on a stripe? i think thats a little heavy handed. id be for a single, thin black stripe though. thinking of military style dress pants. i do dig the all black combo too; thats my favorite they have them, but you cant make the players wear them unless NFL passes a rule making it mandatory, which they wouldnt unless there was a safety issue. sort of like when they enforced players to wear pads in their lants only a handful of years ago. before then, a lot if guys didnt. most will wear as little as possible

    *treatment, not filter!! color correcting is actually something we're very conscious of. for instance in that photo, the whites are very pure. before the editing, the lights of the stadium cast a yellow hue onto the helmet/pants and during the day it can be blue. but the shadows/blacks are still dark in that photo so that needs to be corrected and exposure boosted a bit. all this to say, it's a process but the photos shouldn't be quite that dark post-editing and the treatment should enhance the aqua

    thats a good looking design if you ask me that only gets stronger as you see it multiplied— 11 guys on the field at once. one thing i HATE about the Vapor Untouchable pants though is that they're so thin. and when you have white pants, every seam is visable and the pockets when filled with pads stand out in such an unflattering way. it looks so damn cheap

    Non-sports logos that could be good sports logos?

    ive always seen an eagle in this logo. the sock being the beak and the wing as the skull. made sense as they make an “Eagle” tire

    "Bad Design" that actually works

    piping on football uniforms. i never understood why that was supposed to be a bad thing. it works well with the Falcons and Cardinals i guess this is Unpopular Opinions 2.0?

    they wore white over aqua a bunch last 2 years. theres only 2 games from that timespan i can recall they wore all white. might be a little more than that but not much, and the only one last year was the Color Rush game, i believe. i really wanted to wear throwbacks against the Raiders on MNF last year. god, that would have been one of the top uni match ups of the decade! especially since the Dolphins first game was against the Raiders, it made sense. thought it could happen this year, but we'll make them wear black for a 1:00 game. not a bad strategy. i only assume Buffalo will wear their throwbacks as well. that was a really nice looking matchup last year too. and in primetime

    Boring Freelance Tax-Related Question

    my recommendation is to actually find a "tax guy" and talk with them. taxes can be a bit different state to state, so its best to consult with someone who knows the local laws. and be sure to keep your receipts (or bank statements will do) for anything you buy that can be considered a business expense to ease those taxes.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    right thats what i mean; they took the dark areas of the flag and made them the dark areas on the jersey. but they've only taken a few select elements from the flag, so why not just make those the lighter areas anyway? it makes more sense in the context of the jersey i think i didn't even realize that was the same font. i wonder if its one weight bolder than before though? something seems off

    adidas has no idea what to do with their own logo do they? with Nebraska, they have it on the left pocket of the white pants, then on the red it's replaced by the school's "N". and then there's A&M...why the absolute hell would they do that?! i'm so disappointed with ASU. they had a great uniform when Nike first rolled that out; it defined badass-ery! this new design feels rushed to me and only having seen the home jersey here, i would hope the road/alternates don't suffer from the same mistakes. the flag motif on the jersey does reflect the actual flag well in one way, that the star and selected sun rays are darker than the field (yellow, on the flag) it sits on. but pulling the elements apart and using them as a "watermark" on the jersey doesn't work for me in the same way as they do on the flag— you're already starting with missing elements here and the star and rays would feel much better if they were lighter than the jersey base color. they are representations of light, after all. then, there's the number font that maybe pairs better with Sparky and i see a hint of reflection of the "ASU" monogram (collar), but it looks well out of place with the pitchfork on the helmet and flag motif on the jersey. those elements are sharp and have long straight lines, so when you have an "8" with this bubbly shape to it, it just doesn't fit. its an example of bad contrast of shape; contrast is good, but not without unity and there's just non of that in this uniform if you ask me. i don't know, im trying to find the reasoning behind these decisions but i can't be nice to this one. this uniform is trash

    NY Jets

    agreed on the swoosh, thats about the last place i would put it. but when doing these things, i try to work with the rules im given, like swoosh location, 1 helmet rule, or knowing they will add patches on the chest personally, i dont like being too literal with logos so, im not a fan of the Jets actually having a jet on the helmet. what makes the throwback work in that regard besides being noticably different from this primary concept, is the cheeseyness of it is more accepted because its a mid century design and only used as an alternate. i think in those instances you can be a bit less serious but the oval really works well on the helmet too, especially with all of todays helmet designs and obstacles the logos have to work with. tou look at a team like the Vikings and they dont know what they’re supposed to do with that horn. an oval is probably the best shape you can apply to a helmet for consistant placement from player to player and also happens to be the shape they’ve carried for most of their history
