  1. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    Last year I saw a post on Uni-Watch bringing up the idea of replacing the NFL Color Rash with Throwback Thursdays. The only issue with it is that the one-helmet rule kind of threw a wrench in some of the throwbacks, making it unfortunately unrealistic. For this, I set myself 2 basic rules: Must use the same helmets as usual Throwbacks should be roughly from the same time period for each game (~10 years or so) For a few teams I ended up making fauxback uniforms, one of which is right here-- So with that I have week 1 - Kansas City (1963) @ New England (1960) I have the rest of the teams planned out, and hopefully the combos will work!
  2. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    Washington (1969) @ Dallas (1971) Note: At the time I started this series this was the only game listed for "Thursday Night Football" New Orleans (1969) @ Atlanta (1969) Denver (1979) @ Indianapolis (1986)
  3. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    Since I have them all done, I'll just start posting the rest! Tennessee (1975 Houston Oilers) @ Pittsburgh (1974) For Pittsburgh I wanted to recreate the look from their first Super Bowl win, so they're the only team with mandatory sleeves. New York Giants (1976) @ Washington (1969)
  4. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    Seattle (1988-inspired) @ Arizona (1988) Seattle was the toughest team for me to figure out, but I'm pretty happy with the result.
  5. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    Buffalo (1981) @ New York Jets (1981) They both wore wrong-colored helmets for their 94 throwbacks, so why not so the same here?
  6. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    Miami (1972) @ Baltimore (1972 Cleveland Browns) For Baltimore, I decided to make a fauxback based on the team's actual history.
  7. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    Kansas City (1963) @ Oakland (1960/63 Mashup)
  8. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    Philadelphia (1978) @ Carolina (1975 Fauxback based on 1975 WFL Hornets)
  9. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    The one-helmet rule doesn't include helmet decals or facemasks as they're easily interchangeable, it just applies to the shell.
  10. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    New England @ Tampa Bay (Full 90s)
  11. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    Honestly, thank you for bringing that up, it hadn't even crossed my mind! Luckily Green Bay had a yellow jersey with green pants at the time, so it was a simple swap. Would this work better? I've now learned that Adobe has a color blindness preview (helpful!) and for anyone who may be curious, here's how the the former combination may have looked --
  12. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    Chicago @ Green Bay (both 1950s with a pinch of 30s)
  13. NFL Throwback Thursdays

  14. NFL Throwback Thursdays

    Week 2 - Houston (1952 Dallas Texans) @ Cincinnati (1968) Took some liberties with the Texans design since they only lasted one season.

    They did.
  16. Crossover Series - NHL Football

    I've always enjoyed making crossover concepts, they just have a different feel to them. Finding ways to translate brands and styles across different aesthetics can be challenging but I honestly find it fun! I've already completed all 30 teams, but I'll be posting them individually so feel free to add feedback. I'm looking to make these all the best they can be! For the most part, I tried to keep these teams within modern NFL aesthetics; generally consistent design and without too much being "out there" (no Buccaneers to be found here). First up: Anaheim Ducks

    I did, and it would be correct, but I kept getting angry messages from Habs fans saying it stands for Habs (which it doesn't).

  25. Crossover Series - NHL Football

    What I basically did was take the basic striping pattern from the away/third and turned it into a Northwestern stripe for a little more consistency across the brand. Since the NFL has (for the most part) a lot of consistency between home and away uniforms, I wanted to keep the amount of teams I did with significant differences between uniforms to a minimum. That being said, if you have any suggestions on how to make these more "Wild" I'm all for it!
