  1. Also, the Falcons color rush jerseys are great. I love the black numbers on a red jersey. I just wish there was some of the black/white/black striping from the pants on the jersey, too.
  2. On the TNF broadcast they said that players who win the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award will wear a patch on their uniform for the rest of their career. Rest of the career is absurd for winning a one-year award. Combine that with the silly captain patch the NFL uses with the stars, a team wordmark in the middle for some teams, and it gets pretty busy up front. I wonder where the patch would go on a Steelers, Jets, or Jags jersey since they all already have logo patches on the left chest. Maybe just flip it to the right side, but what if they're a captain?
  3. Uniform Elements

    I would have the letters and numbers match, too. Flipping fill color and outline color between name and number is done a lot, but it's not my favorite. The only other thing I would consider would be possibly doing the name in two colors, say yellow outlined in blue, and then the number in single color blue. I would think about doing this if having a lot of text like "NEW SUMMERFIELD" and a number all with outlines looked visually busy and full. The Charlotte Hornets do this and I think it looks nice. If you did that, the single color should match the outline color of the two-color element. Otherwise it'd look like a mistake if for example the name were yellow outlined in blue and the number was just yellow.
  4. Uniform Elements

    I think a lot would have to do with the design of the jersey itself. For example, if the white jersey has a lot of blue and yellow stripes or areas of color, going with 2-color letters and numbers could make the whole uniform look cluttered or busy while single color letters and numbers could balance it out visually. Conversely, if the jersey itself is pretty plain, single color letters and numbers could make it look cheap, and two-color numbers could also be a way to bring in more color. Without considering the jersey design, I would lean towards single color letters and numbers given the school colors. Royal blue, yellow, and white are all fairly bright colors without a lot of contrast compared to some other color palettes. If you see white numbers with a yellow outline, for example, it can make the numbers look fat and almost out of focus because there isn't enough contrast between the two colors. Conversely, plain royal letters and numbers on a white jersey, yellow (or white) letters and numbers on a royal jersey, and royal letters and numbers on a yellow jersey will be clear and pop. I wouldn't do the letters and numbers the same color as the jersey and use a different color outline. Go with letter and numbers that stand out. "New Summerfield" does present a problem as you said. Your going to have to split the words onto two lines to get it onto the front of a jersey. Sometimes you'll see words split where one word is above the number on the front and the other is below. I would avoid this given how imbalanced the words are. I would keep both words above the numbers. You could space out "NEW" a bit so it covered a little more area on the line above "SUMMERFIELD". Maybe a little like this: N E W SUMMERFIELD 23
  5. Teams with similar colors as the Houston Oilers?

    The Chicago Red Stars in the NWSL come to mind, but they also use black. The Corpus Christi Hooks also had a fauxback in light blue and red. That hat is an all-timer. Their normal look uses these colors, too, but predominately uses navy.

    I agree in terms of jersey design. All the stripes should be the same thickness, though. Having the red/cream chest stripes and black negative space stripe below them be one thickness and then the red/cream along the hem be a different thickness throws the design off. Still, it's better than the 1995-99 design. The sleeve stripes aren't thick enough to hold the sleeve numbers. The hem stripe doesn't make a lot of sense in that it doesn't mirror the sleeve pattern and that white only touches black on the hem. The O logo, though, is inferior. It's lightly modified Times New Roman. The red outline disappears on the red stripe. Both outlines are too thin.

    Judging by the cap, it'll be plain white text with no outline on the front, white will replace cream, and the red/white/red stripes will be equal thickness. I think that could produce a look different enough from that navy alt.

    I think continuing the pattern onto the pants would've looked worse. Patterned pants in general are a bad look in sports. If it were me, I would've made the pants the dark green color seen in the jersey pattern. Use a shiny pants material and it would mimic the helmet color fairly well. It could really tie the uniform together. Also, putting the logo on one side of the helmet and the number on the other is such a bad trend. Ruins any helmet.

    I don't think the Preds gold jerseys need navy shoulders. It'd be too much navy between the sleeves, hem, and numbers. The yellow would be trapped too much. The yellow shoulders work on the white jersey because there's less contrast between yellow and white versus navy and yellow. On both jerseys the thin stripe (white stripe on yellow jersey, navy on white) needs to be far thicker on the sleeve and hem. Or go back to the type of striping they had on the last set of big sleeve&hem end color/thin stripe/thick stripe. I like the new white sock (if the blue stripe were thicker), but I wish the striping pattern on the home and road sets of socks matched. I prefer the white socks over the yellows. The yellow socks are too blocky. The color balance would be really nice if those changes were made and they went back to navy helmets. Right now the balance is thrown way out of whack skewed towards yellow and looks off.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the specifics of the Adidas socks has been discussed. Are there any new/different materials or construction in the Adidas socks versus the Reebok ones? From some Traverse City Tournament photos it looks like some seams may have moved, but that could be just players wearing them crooked. Anybody have any insight?

    The O isn't a good logo, even as a shoulder patch. It's far to simplistic to be effective. Even if you compare it to a similar logo like the Canadiens it pales in comparison. Beef it up, give it a unique feature or shape that makes it look like not just a basic serif font capital O, put some laurels in it, something. Oh, and drop the vintage white for actual white, and change the red outline on the letter to gold so it doesn't disappear into the red stripe.
  12. I hope it's not Buttons. Button Gwinnett was a liar, cheat, conman, slave owner, and general all around failure. Big Mouths is the best option of those given. Bass fishing is pretty popular at Lake Lanier (and the state in general). A tiny part of the huge lake runs through Gwinnett, but it's not that much of a stretch for a connection. There's only a few other fish-based identities in MiLB, so it also has room to stand out without being completely absurd like Sweet Teas, Hush Puppies, or Lamb Chops. Gobblers isn't Brandiose enough. Needs a modifier or noun in front of it to be Brandiose's style.

    Yeah, hand up on that one haha. I think this was a terrible look. Possibly made worse by the red helmet and gloves. It looks mismatched to me.

    I wouldn't read too much into the lack of the blue pants cuff on the red pants or red wrist roll on the gloves in that pic. It's a manufacturer promo pic and not an official team pic, so they're probably not using all the right gear. Like how that Bauer picture had a blue Leafs helmet with white ear loops and chin strap. The Blue Jackets socks would be better if the stripes were maybe two or three times as thick to help fill up the space a little better. Same goes for the jersey striping. It's all so thin. I also like the Blue Jackets red pants because it prevents a full on navy monochrome look. I think this because even more important due to how thin the striping is on the blue jersey and socks. If they went all blue it'd be a very bland look. Usually I prefer the pants be the darkest color in a team's scheme, but you have some leeway with hues of red and blue that other schemes may not afford. You can get away with either a red jersey and blue pants (NYR, FLA, WAS) or blue jersey and red pants (MTL, CBJ), whereas a red jersey with black pants works but a black jersey with red pants (or really any color other than black) would look out of place. Ideally, the jersey would be a brighter color with the pants, gloves, and helmet a darker color, but with a name like blue jackets a red jersey can't happen. And lighter pants is better than monochrome in this instance.

    Fanbrandz worked with the Oilers on the new uniform design, and have various concepts on their website. http://fanbrandz.com/#/edmonton-oilers-uniforms-designs/ I can't post the image here, but here's a breakdown. The design in the foreground is similar to the end product, except that the collar colors are flipped and the pants striping has the old flare at the bottom. They definitely made the right collar color arrangement in the end. The designs in the background are where it gets more interesting. One on the bottom left shows swooping sleeve stripes and side panels, as well as a phantom yoke. The socks are basically a recoloring of the Caps home socks swapping red for orange. The one in the top left looks to be the same as the bottom left except the phantom yoke is filled in with navy. The top middle features the navy yoke and similar swooping sleeve design, but with a swooping hem design as opposed to side panels. It's also worth noting that all the background designs use the previous orange hue while the foreground is in the new hue. Most of these were probably nothing more than concepting to see where ideas took them. I doubt most of these were seriously considered, but it's interesting to see their ideas.
