    NFL REDESIGN (Chiefs 9/18)

    Everything here is simply wonderful

    New OKC Thunder “City” Uniform Posted A Little Too Early

    Numbers are going to be too gaudy if you try to match them with the font. I think it's fantastic the way it is.

    NFL 2018 changes

    The pit stains are dragging the Titans uniforms down. They would be decent without them. With them, they are the worst uniforms in the league. There's just no reason for the boxy insert...

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Going to be dead honest: I love the Oregon uniforms. 1) Sure, the numbers are HUGE, but we just aren't used to numbers that big. That doesn't mean that they don't work. Might just take some getting used to. Subtle way to evolve. I don't hate it. 2) They've really optimized the best parts of their past uniforms. Love the apple green, the straight-yellow, and the stormy roads. I think if these are TASTEFULLY mixed and matched, they are going to look really good 3) Big fan of spicing up the black jerseys with that alternate neon color. It's very Oregon without going over the top. Think about all the stuff from the past? Tire tread jerseys with yokes. The two-tone helmets, which were horrendous. The gaudy material and weird shades of green on the Rose Bowl uniforms with the mirror helmets. This, for modern-day Oregon, isn't what I'd imagine... but it's good.

    Atlanta Hawks Unveil New Uniforms, Court for 50th Season

    Time for me to vent! I love that CEO Steve Koonin thinks outside the box. He's fantastic. But, the Hawks have completely lost an identity at a time when they finally needed to find one. The truth is, they have never had one. This 50th anniv logo, court and upcoming uniform are all implementing...black, white and gold? Why? All this is going to do is add another aesthetic to a franchise that can't claim one for its history. The redesign in 2015 is proof that the people pulling the strings in the branding department have no clue what they're doing...unveiling a red/white based logo and then going..."Welp! We are actually red, black and volt, so we're going to let merchandisers re-color our logo in any combination of the colors we want." Where did that get the Hawks? They can't standardize the volt. There are official team graphics in Philips Arena (or were before the renovation, so we will see how things look) where the background was LIME GREEN. Completely green. But the uniform color is volt, and doesn't even look the same based on material (the black jerseys numbers look yellow but the nameplates glow green). The brand is a mess...it's basically two brands...and now you are adding a third with this white, gold and black nonsense. What they could have done is make their alternate court one that complements the new throwbacks, which are beautiful. What they SHOULD have done is pick a red, volt and white aesthetic that isn't as complicated as the tri-color look they have now. I won't even shop for Hawks merch because it all looks atrocious. The red and white merch is most popular with people because it doesn't make you look like a walking comet. The truth is, outside of Nique's days, the Hawks have never had a solid brand. They don't own a color scheme. All of this "streamlined" hooplah is just diluting their identity even more.

    NFL Redesign (2/32 Atlanta Falcons 1.0)

    I've seen over a dozen attempts at toning down or altering the robo bird (which I particularly think is a fine logo) over the years on these boards, and have never been blown away by one. The first version of the Falcons logo was bad--but good...like, so bad it was good. It's nostalgic. But, the new one is rendered well, served its purpose as an update and is pretty sleek. I've always been interested to see if someone would go in a completely different direction with a Falcons logo...something incorporating wings and a monogram or something of the sort. You might try that here? I only suggest that because I really do think you're getting pigeon-holed trying to make alterations to one or the other without it simply looking like a distorted version of what we're used to in real life. It's a hard logo to build on or re-render.

    Colleges In Need For A Logo Rebrand

    Appalachian State, Sacramento State and Cal Riverside come to mind

    Huge improvement!

    NFL Redesign (2/32 Atlanta Falcons 1.0)

    The color scheme is good, but the logo is a downgrade and the grey facemask clashes pretty hard with a complete color set. I'd make the facemask bronze, red, or black and go with the current logo in that color scheme. Nice work on the conceptual logo, but I just don't see it as an improvement over what they have.

    Will be interesting to see how much these deviate from what they had the last decade.

    Syracuse Orange Rebrand

    Amazing! My only gripe is that the wordmarks are gaudy, especially the big keylines. I'd build something tighter.

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    These uniforms are not bad, but they are certainly not what I was expecting. The good mountain trope on the shorts. The Jazz had their chance... home uniform has the color balance I was expecting The bad the blue uniform. I don't understand how you go from a tri-color pallete to predominantly white accents This refresh is meh on the whole, but not bad.
