  1. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Not a great look in my opinion for my school. That helmet stripe is particularly bad. The black in the shoulder stripes? So unnecessary.
  2. NFL 2017 changes?

    Totally disagree! Love this look, far better than black shoes. Applies for every team in the NFL in my opinion.
  3. NFL 2017 changes?

    The numbers might be too muddy, but everything else about this uniform is fantastic. The blue, white shoes, lack of black, and great stripes overcome the dumb numbers/WCF. Great upgrade.
  4. NFL 2017 changes?

    This is great news. I'm of the opinion that every NFL team looks better in white shoes.
  5. Minnesota Timberwolves

    I really don't like how they've been using the new font for a lot more than the words "MINNESOTA" and "TIMBERWOLVES." Like, pick another font to display when you write "ASSOCIATION" or "NEW THREDS." Overall I'm just really disappointed with this identity. I can't tell what's more terrible: the shade of green, or the fact that it's barely incorporated into the uniform set. I get the sense that they'll end up with a terribly generic green alternate that will 1. feature this terrible shade of green 2. way too much.
  6. Minnesota Timberwolves

    Holy hell these are bad (if accurate). Everything about the Timberwolves redesign was backwards. Not to get too whatever here but "timber" and "wolves" are like two really cool words! They make me think of fresh air, snow, the night sky, and a deep green forest. How the hell did we end up with navy and the greeniest green imaginable? With no tree patterns! I feel similarly about the "sea" "hawks."
  7. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Silver gone from number trim. Good move.
  8. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I really disliked the usage of "Hornets " instead of "Charlotte on the real jersey but then I remembered Home/Away designations are no longer and I got over it.
  9. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I'm here for these changes to home/road designations and don't really care how jargon-y they want to make it. This is a change that really does make sense for the NBA. Of the four major leagues, a proliferation of options and a breakdown of white/home color/road designations works best. This is what the manufacturers do. They overdo it. I've got to give them credit for overdoing it in a way that kind of actually makes sense. A white NBA jersey does say "professional" to me. A colored one does say "iconic" to each team to me.
  10. NFL 2017 changes?

    My ideal Eagles uniform.
  11. NBA Changes 2017-18

    This looks like an early draft of the ad. Things look drawn on, unfinished, etc. Must have been some technical glitch that sent it out. Definitely not ready for release.
  12. MLB Changes 2017

    This is a good point. That photo I posted on the previous page which started this whole debate features an undershirt with the "DC" logo, and it all just seems to work together very well. You avoid really any doubling up or overlap. A uniform would have the interlocking DC on the hat, Washington or Nationals on the chest, and the full logo on the sleeve.
  13. MLB Changes 2017

    The Nats really screwed up their brand. The curly-W overload is oh so generic, especially when the only kind of "alternate" they can come up with is basically a hard to see US flag-themed design. Bring it all back! The interlocking DC! The monumental aesthetic! The gold! The beautiful logo!
  14. CCSLN Airport Logo Thread

    From November of 2015, "Reagan and Dulles Unveil New Logo and Passenger Pledge." "This brand is more than just the color scheme and a logo. At its core an organization needs to stand for something; at Reagan National and Dulles International we choose to stand for our passengers,” said Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer Jerome L. Davis." I'm not able to find the old logos for either airport right now. In any case, I definitely noticed the change in the past year or two. It's a pretty notable move to use the same logo for both airports. Dulles, which is significantly farther away from downtown Washington, has actually begun to lose users since 2005. This seems like a move aimed at rebranding Dulles as more approachable and closer to the national capital. Dulles's entire scheme is very sleek and sterile. It very much feels like a "generic international airport" to me. I guess they'd rather it be seen as Washington D.C.'s international airport, rather than a general one located in Virginia. Can't find the old logos anywhere, but if I had to guess, Dulles's would be something silver and black or white. As a side note, Dulles has a gorgeous main building.
