  1. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    This is a rare case where it actually makes a bit of sense (not saying it's a GOOD reason), considering a "C" can't be mirrored to face the front of the helmet, which isn't an issue in-and-of itself, but the "motion" lines make it look awkward with the C moving toward the back of the helmet.. It's not a huge issue, especially considering they've been using the "backwards-motion-C" on the left side of their helmet for years, but if a team is going to jump on this ridiculous fad, I can at least appreciate when teams have a valid reason (whether they are aware of the reason or not).. Another example, my brother-in-law is the head coach at Northeastern State University (a not-very-competitive NCAA D-II school in Oklahoma), and they utilize the asymmetrical logo/# helmet design, but it's due to the fact that they only licensed the right-facing version of their logo (or something to that effect), so they try to avoid using the left-facing iteration of the logo.. Therefore, they opted to use numbers on the left side instead.. (Side note: the previous helmet had a crude Seahawks knockoff design, incorporating the Riverhawk head logo onto a Seahawks-style elongated neck, but oddly enough, used both right- and left-facing versions for a symmetrical helmet..)

    Ahhh, gotcha.. Yeah, that'd be a nice touch for them.. It sounded like you were suggesting they go all "Browns" on us

    When you say "reversed numbers", are you referring to maroon numbers with white outline? If so, that would be horrible.. Legibility outweighs standing out from other orange teams
  4. LOGOLYMPIAD 2016 - Closing Ceremonies

    With 5 years under your belt and 10 events per year, what if you re-hashed the best 2 events from each one, assuming they don't overlap too much? It'd be makeshift for sure, but it would allow for a logolympiad this year, nonetheless.. Just a thought
  5. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    I suspect that this is the case.. There's no reason to rush getting the new game decals on, if they'll just get banged up at practice and the purpose of putting new decals on for each game is to have perfect, undamaged decals

    The worst part of this picture is the poorly Photoshopped football with the upside-down Nike swoosh.. That's taking the marketing a bit too far imo
  7. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    I almost feel like the Rams need to have a helmet that doesn't perfectly match the jerseys, but it should appear like they tried.. A dark metallic royal that catches some bright, vibrant royal highlights in the sun would be ideal (like the giants, but a bit darker).. Angelo State looks great above, but seems to be missing something.. The images from what appear to be night games are near perfect though..
  8. CFB Interactive Concepts (SEC Finished)

    To be fair, Alabama's pants stripe is a white stripe with crimson on each side, EXACTLY like their helmet.. Moral of the story: There's usually more than one way to be "consistent" with striping
  9. Jacksonville Jaguars

    Gotta change the numbers on the teal jersey to white.. They wouldn't show up at normal speed while watching the game.. Same issue the browns have
  10. NFL 2017 changes?

    I agree.. Not the best source or inspiration, and you've done an amazing job - especially with the full body version.. Just think the head-only needs more context
  12. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    id consider a number font change to be a much smaller change than eliminating the secondary color entirely.. gold oulines on the horns, navy masks, gold outlines on the pants stripes, and you get a different "feel" than the St. Louis set by effectively becoming a blue/white team w/ gold trim instead of a blue/gold team w/ white trim.. its not ideal, but making this set decent and at least COHESIVE isn't rocket surgery.. they're trying so hard to not look like the St. Louis Rams that they don't look like any professional team of any sport should ever look.. that's why i'm convinced they're just trolling Goodell and the NFL, because nobody can WANT to look that bad..
  13. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    It really wouldn't be that difficult to have gold trim on the overly white elements and keep the uniform from looking ridiculous and horribly mismatched.. It's so bad that I'm convinced the rams are just trolling the NFL right now..

    Without the context of the body, the head-only version looks like it's melting.. Or a brain with a hat
  15. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Same problem Illinois had when they first unveiled their set.. The orange helmet had the thin white stripe between the wider blue stripes, but the orange pants replaced the white with orange, which was such a visual clash.. Such a missed opportunity with such an obvious solution..
