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.
Now that the AAF has unveiled their eight teams' logos, I've started working on some concepts for uniforms and fields for the teams. With Starter coming in so late in the game, I figured using an old Nike template with switched-out logos would make sense, as they would be playing catch-up with the big boys of the uniform world. Each field, however, is identical, minus team branding and colors. First up are the Orlando Apollos. The stripe on the pants and helmet comes to a point from the bottom like the arrow in the team logo. The helmet, sleeve caps, pant stripe, and gloves all follow a gradient between the two oranges the team uses in the logo. Next team up are the San Antonio Commanders. With the unique color scheme of maroon, red, and silver, the Commanders' uniforms feature silver helmets and pants that match because that's something you should be able to do as professionals (here's looking at you, Cowboys). Maroon is the featured color with red used as an accent, and the home uniform features the wordmark and maker's mark reflective in silver. With such a bold color scheme, I didn't want to busy up the uniforms, so there's no striping to be found, although the numbers have a double outline to keep from feeling boring. The Memphis Express are the last team I have ready right now. The team's split wordmark and logo inspire the jersey, as the numbers are split with differently-colored tops and bottoms. To make sure the numbers are legible, they are outlined. The outlines don't match the same half between home and road uniforms to give the team a little extra quirk. Comments and criticism welcome.
