    College Football uniforms- 2018

    I don't know if it's too early to start this thread but I'm going to kick it off anyways. There are rumors that PJ Fleck is going to completely overhaul Minnesota's uniforms next year. Georgia Tech will be with adidas next year.

This is the big one. I've had the bits and pieces of this one working for two and half years and I finally feel ready enough to get this one out to the public. This project began when I wondered one day what would happen if Nike did something ludicrous and somehow managed to get apparel rights to every single FBS level team. Of course this is seemingly impossible in the real world, but it was fun to think about. Then I took it one step further. Not only would get every FBS football team, but if every FBS football team also had a Division 1 basketball, baseball and hockey team for Nike to get their hands on. So the goal here is one, to actually finish this idea, but more than that, is to see if I can create a unique identity for 130 some teams across 4 different sports. This means that some traditional looks will be changed slightly and some might change drastically. Nevertheless, I'm excited to get this off the ground and share it with you guys. Teams will be posted as I get them done and will be done in a random order I have created with some help from the internet and first up is the Ohio Bobcats of the MAC: (I also will create one of these cool team headers for every team). Ohio's sports have a rather laid back and simplistic look to them. Even with adidas/Russell at the helm of their apparel, they don't have too crazy of a look and I kept that in mind as I designed their uniforms for this. Keeping that in mind, I left their football uniforms pretty much the same as they have been the last couple years. Biggest change here is the addition of real pants stripes as opposed to no stripes or very short stripes. I limited black to an alternate set that would hopefully be worn separately, but in the current state of college football we all know that wouldn't happen. The hockey uniforms are very similar to how the football uniforms go. I did consider shoulder logos for them but I didn't keep them, as it just didn't feel right to me. Baseball uniforms again are very simple and consistent with the rest of the uniforms. Biggest thing here and across the board is that there is no longer a "grey away" designation. Unless a team has grey in their set, I won't be giving a team a grey uniform for baseball. Basketball is consistent with the rest. I didn't want to go full Celtics with Ohio, so the double stripe pattern is on the shoulders and the collar trim is a solid color. On the shorts the waistband is striped and the hem is a solid color. C&C is welcome as always. Given the larger nature of this thread, I'll try and get the next team up as soon as I can.

    NFL changes 2019

    It's almost 2019 so I figured I'd make this. We already know about the Jets getting new uniforms and that's super exciting https://www.nbcsports.com/bayarea/ray-ratto/oakland-lawsuit-vs-raiders-nfl-begs-potentially-league-shaking-question The City of Oakland is sueing the Raiders and is trying to get a Cleveland deal for the rights to the Raiders name. If the Raiders name sticks with Oakland, it will probably never be used again given how unlikely an expansion or move to Oakland will be. There's a small chance that December 30th will be the last time the Raiders name ever takes the field
  6. Starting around the Spring of 2013, I began developing a fictional football league, the American Football Association. Over the next year, I worked on a few different versions of it, but generally focused more on simulating seasons with dice and developing a narrative go go along with it. Any graphic elements were extremely basic, and usually done in Paint or Microsoft Office. However, by the Spring of 2014, I had decided to learn how to use Photoshop, and determined that developing logos and uniforms for the AFA was an excellent way to get practice (though after about a month I realized that Illustrator was a better fit for my needs than Photoshop). Starting in 1946, I began designing logos and uniforms for each team. I simulate each season (see the "Running the AFA" spoiler for details on the process), and write a narrative explaining the events. As I write this in September of 2017, the project is nearly 3.5 years old, and I have progressed to the 1986 season, rebranding teams whenever it has been appropriate. I am looking for feedback and criticism for every aspect of the designs, from the template (which is based largely on the one used by the gridiron uniform database) to the specifics details of how I put together each team. A note to new readers: This thread has gotten pretty long. If you would like to get caught up on the story or the evolution of team logos or uniforms without reading through the entire thread, see the links to google drive below Running the AFA. The year is: 1990 Current Divisions and Teams If anyone finds a bad link anywhere below, please send me a PM to let me know so that I can fix it. Thank you.

    AAF Field Concepts

    Some of you might be aware that a new spring football league, the Association of American Football (AAF) is kicking off (or rather starting from the 25 yard line) this February. With all the team logos being released, I figured I'd through some field concepts out there. AAF Logos Starting with the San Diego Fleet first I used the same number font and grass pattern that was used the last time the Chargers played in San Diego, since the Fleet will be playing in the same stadium. Thought about using a helmet logo at midfield as the Chargers did, but the uniforms for each team haven't been unveiled yet, so I'm not sure what the helmet will look like. Maybe something I come back to. I think for all the fields, the AAF logo should be on the field, no smaller than 4 yards in width, as I have on this field. Since it's a new league, it needs to advertise itself in every game. Speaking of advertising, I wouldn't be surprised if advertisements were added to the actual fields, like in college bowl games, since that's a revenue source for the league.

    NFL by infernoqueso

    I am starting this thread after a long break from the forum. I am setting out to fix rather than completely revamp each teams' look. Not only will I mock-up uniforms, but also merchandise and a field. In addition I have placed 2 restrictions on my concepts. 1.) Teams can have up to 2 different helmets. 2.) Teams can have up to 4 different jerseys (including throwbacks). Teams: Arizona Cardinals (Updated) Atlanta Falcons (Updated) Baltimore Ravens Buffalo Bills I will start in alphabetical order with the Arizona Cardinals. Their current uniform is a mess of piping and looks incredibly dated. My idea was to restore a classic feel to a historic franchise, while adding a modern twist. I left the helmet untouched, because in my opinion it is key part of their identity. I sublimated the Arizona flag into the uniforms to establish a unique and regionalized look for the team. The black alternate takes this to an extreme but stays in line the the home and away. I also included a faux-back look that incorporates elements of past uniforms while still fitting in with their current identity. C&C is appreciated, next up will be the Atlanta Falcons.

    Atlanta Falcons Logo Concept

    The Falcons are overdue for a fresh look. In my opinion, their old look wasn't a bad one, but Arthur Blank wanted to forge a new winning identity, so I get why the brand was changed. It's unfortunate that such a classic and strong logo had to fall victim to association to decades of losing. My idea is to go back to the old branding, but not all the way. I kept the current forward tilt of the current logo, as well as the aggressive bird's eye and overall feel to the classic logo. I did some styling to the wing feathers for a more aerodynamic look, and updated the bird's head and beak to look more like a bird of prey than the old, docile head of the classic logo. I may play around with helmet/uniform concepts along this line, so stay tuned! Here are the old and current logos for reference:
  13. So I've finally done something I've been pondering about for the past year or so. I made an entire fantasy football league where each team is made up only from players in a given state/region. It's a different way of using fantasy and it seemed like something that could be interesting to see as the season played out. I went through pro-football-reference.com and looked through each player birthplace states to find players for each team. The beginning rosters were not permanent, I have changed each variously throughout the year as I found out some players produce more points than others. Each Wednesday I go through and edit each teams rosters and it's actually been quite interesting to watch week to week. Here's a list of the team I decided to use: East Division: Dixieland Rebels (Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee) Florida Hurricanes Georgia Swampers Great Lakes Bucks (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin) Mid-East Islanders (Delaware, D.C., Kentucky, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia) New England Pilgrims (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont) New Jersey Sea Dragons Pennsylvania Colonials West Division Big Sky Ranchers (Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington) California Surfers Great Plains Bison (Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma) International Travelers (All non-USA areas) Louisiana Gators Ohio Harvest Rocky Mountain Bighorns (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming) Texas Gunslingers Here's a look at the current standings. It may surprise you how each region is doing, as well as what players are on each team and how each team did against each other. http://games.espn.com/ffl/standings?leagueId=704917&seasonId=2018 Let me know what you think of this little experiment, or if you know of any improvements I could make for next season.

    Pixelated HS Football Helmets

    Hey all, About a week ago I decided that I would try my hand at pixelated art. I was inspired by everyone's favorite football video game, Tecmo Bowl, to create some pixelated football helmets. In this graphic, I've created all of the teams in the local Gateway Athletic Conference. I'd really love some feedback on anything and everything here. I'm only about halfway through my first quarter of Graphic Design 1 right now, so I'm definitely still new to making concepts. Any words you guys have would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for viewing, hope you all enjoy!

    Apple Cup Logo

    Hey everyone. I've been holding onto this design for a while, as the Apple Cup hasn't been on anyone's mind until now, and no one could've predicted just how important it would be! The current logo for the game is serviceable, but is incredibly bland and generic. I sought to create something unique to Washington, and here's what I came up with, in several different color options. Thanks for checking it out! https://imgur.com/kCvbtmD https://imgur.com/bwzIphx https://imgur.com/Rf10GkD https://imgur.com/BdxRyzh https://imgur.com/92eaete
  16. I searched through threads for the past year and couldn't find anything like this, so I figured I would post it. The idea behind this thread is to post interesting facts or statistics that a lot of people don't know. It'll essentially be the answers to trivia questions. I've got two interesting ones to start this thread off. The Minnesota Vikings were the first team to kick an extra point from the 15-yard line. Tom Brady has played two games at University of Phoenix Stadium, but he has never played the Cardinals there. The Pats have played two Super Bowls there, but only played the Cardinals at home since the stadium was built.
  17. The Baltimore Ravens' logo has been in service since 1999. During that time they won the Super Bowl twice (2000,2012). Having that history tied to their current logo puts my concept at a disadvantage, but here it is: Undecided if I like the gold line/white beak or white line/gold beak.
  18. On April 21, 2001 at the conclusion of the first of that American staple we call "The Big Game at the End", as we watched the Xtreme lift that big X over their heads, we thought that the XFL would be taken away from us forever. But apparently, there are rumblings that the X Football League might be fixin' to make a comeback! Now if that's true, which I hope it is, first of all I'll be tuning in for sure, and second of all they're gonna have to tone down the 2001 more than a few notches. Especially with NFL ratings in steep decline this season, this is the perfect time for Vince McMahon to swoop in and create the Anti-NFL, or the Xtra-Fun League, if you will. But image is everything. And safety, safety's probably in there somewhere too. We'll see. So I want to get way out ahead of the rumors and set up what I think would be a fitting return for the XFL 18 years later. I'm not gonna quibble over the actual rulebook, I'll let them figure that out, but I do know what I'd like to see design wise. Here are my design rules: 1. There are no rules! Actually, there are a few. They're right here. 2. No white allowed. Off-white is allowed in small doses, as well as silver, but stark white is not allowed on Logos, Uniforms, or Merchandise of any kind. 3. Helmets are a canvas. No more small, tame, rinky-dink helmet logos. Helmets should be loud and expressive of a team's design, serving as the centerpiece of their uniform. 4. 3 logos per team, no more and no less. They are as follows; Insignia: main logo, Proxy: secondary, Character: letter logo 5. 3 uniforms per team, no more and no less. They are as follows; Base: worn at home, Clash: worn on the road, Army: outside the box third jersey worn at home. 6. Unique NOBs are still allowed, but have to be approved before being applied to jersey. So there you have 'em, my official design rules for the XFL! I'll be following these closely for all eight teams (more on teams ahead). The New Official Logos of the XFL The original XFL logo was rushed and horrible, so I wanted to make a logo that would completely change people's view of the league. Modernized, but as no nonsense as always. This was my creative process, pardon the roughness. Early thoughts were that I'd like to include a lightning bolt in the X or make the X from negative space, but I ended up choosing something closest to the lowest logo on the center left because I liked the unique shape and inclusion of a football. After some retooling, I ended up with a result I'm really happy with that includes an Insignia, Proxy, and Character logo for the league. The Insignia uses a combo football/shield shape with half of the X made by stitches; football or otherwise. Teams Here's the thing, I don't know the teams yet. I know the cities, but I don't know the teams. The reason being this is going to be a step-by-step project so I'll be including my entire process, part of which is choosing the names of all 8 teams. I'd love to hear any names you can come up with as well! Here are the eight locations: Boston (new) Chicago Detroit (new) Las Vegas California New York St. Louis (new) Texas (new) So there it is, The new XFL! What do you think of the idea, setup, and first trio of logos? Your feedback is incredibly important to me, so don't hold back with the C&C! Thanks guys, and stay tuned for Boston!

Now that the Super Bowl Field Database thread has run its course until January, I will be doing alternate Super Bowl fields using the teams that lost the conference (or league) championships, or even some teams that lost in the playoffs earlier than the conference title if requested. Since these games never happened, I can take more input on what people would like to see in a teams endzone, especially for teams that hadn't made a Super Bowl during a particular era. In the Super Bowl database thread I mentioned I would go in reverse order for these fields, but now I'm thinking it makes more sense to go chronologically. So here is Super Bowl I, the Dallas Cowboys vs Buffalo Bills. And as I said before, endzone designs (mostly color schemes) are not set in stone here, so suggestions are welcome.
  20. I think the Eagles have a great logo and I'm a big fan of their midnight green color, but I think they just have too much going on with black, charcoal gray and silver accompanying the green. In my opinion, the Eagles look best when they are wearing only green, silver and white, so this concept is more of a clean-up than a full on rebrand. I was also inspired by what the Detroit Lions did with their logo an uniforms this past season. Those are not perfect, but I really like the idea of what the Lions did. Here's my take on the logo: nothing too exciting, the green is a touch more green and the black is gone. The new wordmark is my take on a simpler, less "XTREME" version of the current wordmark and is more in line with the contemporary branding in the NFL: bold, single color lettering with some serifs and a bridge shape to give it some character. Here are the new home and road uniforms. Less is more as the uniforms are reminiscent of the current duds but are without the needless clutter of superfluous colors and embellishment. The Color Rush uniform is gray in the same style of the primary uniforms and the regular alternate uniform is a midnight green version of the classic throwback uniforms thanks to the one-helmet rule. So, thats it. Thanks for taking a look and I'm definitely open to any and all C&C and feedback.
  21. Hello! I’ve always been a huge fan of sports branding and history, but I’ve never actually taken to creating my own logos/jerseys until now. I figured this would be the best place to post my first attempts at creating teams because you all seem to give useful feedback, even if it isn’t always exactly what the artist want to hear. For this project I’ve created 8 team leagues for baseball, american football, basketball, and hockey, and I've decided to use my own templates. The templates are pretty basic but I’m proud of them. Any recommendations for upgrading the templates would be greatly appreciated as well. I should also mention that for the time being I am using a program called Vectr. First up will be the Stars and Stripes Baseball League. Each team will have a home, away, and alternate uniform. The 8 teams will be in these markets: New York Los Angeles Chicago Houston Phoenix Philadelphia San Antonio San Diego The first team posted is the New York Honeycrisps, which is based on the “Big Apple” nickname for New York. I know cliches aren’t always the best way to go, but I couldn’t keep myself from trying to create an apple holding a bat. Anyways, I’d really appreciate your feedback on what areas I could improve in. Thanks for reading!

    Onward for the Brown & Gold

    Rebrand for my alma mater Western Michigan University. We aren't sure if we are black, gold, old gold, grey, or brown. I think the Brown and Old Gold is a great scheme and it's time to return to our roots. Enjoy. Uniforms to follow!

    High School Football Uniforms 2018

    The 2018 High School football season kicks off tonight here in Michigan so I thought it would be a good time to start this up again. Please post what local schools in your area are wearing or any other schools you happen to find. Now that we are in the 2018 season I see more and more schools switching to one of the 3 big brands (Nike, Adidas, UA) however there are still some schools wearing brands like Wilson, Riddell, Russell Athletic. I also see more schools usually the bigger ones following the college teams and adding multiple alternate uniforms and in some instances alternate helmets.

    Dallas Texans 1952

    Just playing around as I only have basic software to work with. But this came out pretty good. Could only find a small Texans logo and a pennant photo to work with. If anyone has already updated these, I'd like to see your work .
  25. Hello all. I am working on an “Alternative History” of the USFL, beginning in 1984 and we will see where it takes us. It is all based on the premise that a single historical change can lead to an entirely different outcome. My premise is that John Bassett, owner of the Tampa Bay Bandits and chief opposition to the move to a Fall schedule does not become ill. How could that have changed the USFL’s destiny? I will be going year by year and as teams merge, move, are added or simply change uniforms, I will post any new logos or uniforms, because that is what this board is about, but I will also try to weave in other events, particularly related to the NFL, which might also have altered history. Should be an interesting challenge to the imagination. I may get some facts wrong here and there, and I may go in some directions you don’t think are likely, but it is just a fictional story, so feel free to comment if you think things would have gone differently. 1985: With John Bassett at full strength, there is a strong counterpoint to Donald Trump and the argument that the USFL move to the Fall. Trump loses the vote. The antitrust lawsuit vs. the NFL will go ahead, but the league decides to continue with a Spring schedule. As a result the following changes occurred within the league: Both ABC and ESPN provided the league with new TV Contracts and an influx of nearly $225 million dollars with the proviso that teams remain in both Chicago and Los Angeles. The league agreed to the TV network’s terms and worked to enhance ownership groups in both cities while managing the two franchises’ day to day operations. The league also agrees to develop a more stringent salary cap to help cut down on financial losses, but through a combination of the league’s regional draft, which privileges certain teams with a pipeline to 2-3 local universities, and an exemption policy which allows 2 players per team not to count against the cap, the pace of “big name” signings slows but does not completely end. Without the shift to Fall, ownership groups in Michigan, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Washington did not opt to relocate their franchises for 1985. Due to economic struggles, and ownership interest in larger markets, it was decided that the league would contract by 2 franchises. The Oklahoma Outlaws merged with the undercapitalized San Antonio Gunslingers, to become the San Antonio Outlaws and the Pittsburgh Maulers merged with the struggling Washington Federals, bringing significant football talent to a team which had struggled to win games In its first two seasons. The 1985 Season is played with stronger attendance and ratings than anticipated, perhaps due to the continuity of the ongoing Spring season. Some franchises still struggle for attendance, particularly in Chicago and L.A., who also have weak seasons on the field, but the league is propping up both franchises and TV ratings help to make the case to potential owners for both.
