  1. This morning, the official portraits of the 44th president of the United States, Barack Obama, and his wife Michelle, were unveiled.
  2. NFL 2018 changes

    I go back and forth on this one constantly.
  3. NFL 2018 changes

    Random new pant options give me hope Washington makes what we all want finally a reality.
  4. When was the last time a team really revamped their uniforms and kept a standard block font? Lions? Bucs?
  5. I think Barack's is stunning. For the first three minutes or so I didn't like it, because I was expecting/looking forward to a "conventional" portrait. In the same way I'm excited for the USS Barack Obama, Obama International Airport, and Barack Obama Elementary, because of what that will continue to represent, I was excited for a conventional portrait. But very quickly I began to appreciate the audacity and beauty of what was unveiled. What was considered within bounds for who could be the president changes in 2008, and it makes sense to me that Barack Obama's portrait changes what is considered in bounds for a presidential portrait in such a gorgeous way.

    Honestly, as long as it looks purple in all lighting situations, I'm good.

    Vikings is a satin finish I thiiiink
  8. NFL 2018 changes

    It really just totally depends on the bastardization. Like, if you considered the Vikings a bastardization (purple pants with purple socks sticks out to me as a trademark bastardized sign) I'll take it.

    I really don't agree with this take that the Dolphins wearing throwbacks twice a year makes up for their current uniform set being not as good. I want them to look their best week and week out. @BrandMooreArt
  10. NBA Changes 2017-18

    its honestly laughable how bad the brooklyn ad patch looks
  11. These pants are just like the perfect football pants
  12. IMO, not when done right. I'll take this over this any day of the week
  13. Yeah I meant the person you quoted.
  14. Agreed it almost feels like you're basically saying "the head is poorly designed so the body looks good by comparison."
  15. Quidditch World Cup (England Kits UP)

    Each team should have a broomstick sponsor as well. Really important.

  16. I love both these sets. This is exactly what a NFL Pro Bowl Hawaii uniform should look like.
  17. I feel like a great brand for a Buenos Aires team would be something that talks about "porteños" and the whole iconography of that nickname.
  18. NFL 2018 changes

    Look I'm someone who thinks that every NFL team should be mandated to have socks that are a different color than their pants. And I couldn't give less of a whatever about these records/franchises/histories. I mean, unless a team stays in the same place but loses its history/records, who really gets upset about it in practicality? Like, is there someone who moved from Cleveland to Baltimore in 1999 and was like "oh, great! I can just follow my favorite [franchise].... BUT WAIT they don't have the same records! AGH"? I feel like that's the situation where it actually matters to someone.
  19. Unused Logos and Uniforms

    Here's the correct link, I think. The above isn't right.
  20. NFL 2018 changes

    But that’s not because of the move. I was born in 1995 and I didn’t even know the Browns were actually an expansion team until like three years ago. Why would I? Same uniforms, city, name, etc. And I KNOW my football! It’s the same argument as saying that nobody associates the Washington NFL team with its three Super Bowl wins anymore because they’ve been a consistent Raljon dumpster fire since basically the same time period. I mean, yeah, I’ve never seen them reach an NFC Championship game but I still KNOW that it’s the same franchise. Just like I Know I Know the Browns team that just went 0-16 is the same franchise as Jim Brown’s Browns.
  21. NFL 2018 changes

    Honestly, if an MLB team moves back to Montreal, count me as ambivalent about the Nationals franchise ceding their history before moving to Washington in 2005. That team was basically an expansion team in terms of talent, and we already choose to honor/remember players and teams not part of the Expos/Nationals franchise rather than pre-2005 Expos players and teams. All the statues are to old Washington Nationals and Washington Senators, the flags, etc. I really couldn't care less. EDIT: I was wrong that there's no mention of the Expos in the Nationals current apparatus. There is some!
  22. Super Bowl LII logo

    I love that this attempt to suck the fun out of a major sporting event’s design is basically failing without a concerted clear effort on the part of the NFL. It shows that it was just such a bad idea that it’s being undermined from a bunch of places.

    Baltimore Ravens is a football identity from an alternate universe where people like us are given control over sports branding. Well, a Baltimore Ravens that wears purple jerseys, black pants, and purple socks all at once.
