  1. *Wants to play along, but genuinely likes most of the concepts
  2. Boston Celtics Women's Logo

    I posted a few of my NFL Gridiron Gals designs on a t-shirt site and they did great around the holiday season... decided to branch out to other sports! There really aren't many mascot-based NBA logos, so probably a standalone b-ball design... and tips/feedback is appreciated!
  3. Boston Celtics Women's Logo

    Just saw the Ben Franklin 76ers logo... so good! Challenge accepted!
  4. I came in to post this same thought - if the teams lined up right, I wouldn't put it past the league to do something like this for the 100th season in 2019.
  5. How much can you "update" a classic?

    Maybe this is an unpopular opinion... from the font change to right-leaning italics to the low-to-high diagonal, I find every element of the new text an upgrade.
  6. NFL Jersey Questions

    I mean, what is the specific line between a t-shirt and a jersey? They are certainly more jersey-like than the actual cotton t-shirts with names on the back. I believe the jersey you ended up with is new for 2017 and is simply sublimated instead of screenprinted or stitched... I suppose the cut of the garment and the NFL chip constitutes a jersey, but you're right, it feels very Dri Fit t-shirt-ish, and overpriced for the quality... another reason the counterfeit market is so strong.
  7. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    I forgot my favorite! Some random (brand new) Corona t-shirt priced at $1... checked out the front and found this: Looking forward to cutting this out and turning it into some kind of matted/framed piece this summer
  8. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    Anyone curious about thrift stores - go now! Goodwill/Salvation Army gets overwhelmed with donations after Xmas, tons of brand new items... scored a flawless Hugo Boss suit for $6 Some great jersey finds already in the first two weeks of 2018! Man U Authentic Nike JSY ($2.50) Ladies Drew Brees JSY ($9) Stitched EJ Manuel Jersey ($12) Local College Game-Used Jersey ($2.50) New with tags Adidas Diego Costa Authentic JSY ($10) (didn't photograph) New with Tags Adidas Ricardo Kaka Authentic JSY ($10) ...and this gem: Vintage Majestic 9ers fan JSY w/front pocket ($5)
  9. Really cool to see the design develop with every revision... its a great match when a designer open to suggestions finds a site with members willing to help... golf claps all around!
  10. Hershey Bears Project

    As I type this, I am wearing a random Hershey Bears t-shirt I found at Goodwill, despite having never seen the team play... their current logo is really well-designed and I love the longevity of their brand... looking forward to what you design!

    We promise.
  12. same name, same team, same number

    Gunning for the coveted obscurity award:
  13. Unpopular Opinions

    Before it was wildly overdone by schools nationwide, I thought the Broncos 97 set was really creative and well-designed.
  14. NFL 2018 changes

    Its not a matter of flooding the market per se, but rather cannibalizing an already-existing market. Every team can (and does) sell throwback & vintage-inspired gear - no gimmick game needed. Jim Kelly jerseys are still hot in 2018. While I can't find the sales figures, I also see red Bills jerseys all over Buffalo, which didn't happen when Puma offered a near-identical design as a fashion jersey in 2000. That being said, when the Color Rush gimmick runs its retail course, I would love to see newer teams fauxback their way into a throwback gimmick - i.e, a kitschy, Oiler-colored, vintage-style Houston uni
  15. NFL 2018 changes

    People can already purchase creamsicle jerseys, red Pats gear, etc. The NFL throwback market is strong and has already existed for decades. Color Rush created new merch. Throwback Thursday would simply recycle existing merch that was already available.
  16. NFL 2018 changes

    IIRC, Deion Sanders, who was famously meticulous about his uniform, wore the same helmet through much of his NFL career, even after changing teams. Color Rush really only exists as a merch gimmick. A lot of teams already wear throwbacks as alternates, which cannibalizes the potential to expand that market the way Nike did by adding an entirely new jersey for almost every team.
  17. Time to rebrand the Panthers?

    Absolutely, compared to these beauties: ...but surely not compared to this circa aught-two AFC NFC identity crisis-era mono-swamp Glad Bag:
  18. Time to rebrand the Panthers?

    But its also how you get the current Seahawks and Vikings uniforms.
  19. The Worst Jersey Clash I've Ever Seen

    I felt legitimately colorblind watching this live.
  20. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    I know it's semantics, but I disagree with the notion that changing uniform colors/designs and logos constitutes a "rebrand." The Oilers becoming the Titans is a rebrand. The Rams staying the Rams and simply changing their look is more of a "refresh" of their existing brand than a full-fledged "rebrand." Of course, a simple Google search of the definition of "rebrand" reveals I am wrong, but still!
  21. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    I really dislike the giant collars on modern Nike jerseys. New England, Buffalo, Green Bay, etc. have been savvy enough to keep the traditional collar style, but the giant colorized collars worn by Houston, Denver, etc. looks ridiculous... the big collar should always just match the body color
  22. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    Looks legit to me! The shield looks perfect My local savers had about 10 of the worst fake Nike Raiders jerseys I have ever seen at $40 a pop... a week later, they had all sold! Such a shame.
  23. Irv Weinstein Vector

    Not a sports figure, but a broadcasting legend! From WKBW Channel 7, Buffalo, NY's Irv Weinstein passed away on 12/26/2017... RIP, Irv!
  24. Wentzylvania

    ^^ Agreed! I would thicken up all the strokes on the black lines and its set!
  25. Time to rebrand the Panthers?

    I would love to see this helmet: ...and silver removed from their identity altogether. The light blue pops enough to not need silver muddying up the contrast.
