The last time I made concepts was two football seasons ago. I just completed my second year at the University of Alabama and after a rocky start to my collegiate career here (with a major change), I have finally started to organize all of my time for school, social life and my hobbies. I just recently made the switch to a MacBook Pro after my Dell crashed. It had all of my artwork on it so I lost it when the computer crashed. About a month ago, I decided to just go ahead and start from scratch and downloaded GIMP, fonts and templates so that I could pick this back up. Anyways, I decided to do a legitimate NFL series for the first time. I've posted a few NFL concepts before but I've always been a bigger fan of College so it has been fun to do something different. I have already completed every team for the series (first time ever to complete a series) but I am only going to post one division at a time starting out with the NFC. I will alternate between conferences and I will try to post a division every week. I would like to post the entire NFC South today but it will take multiple post for each team so I'm just going to start with one and if I have some time later I will at least post one more, I'll try to get the whole division up over the weekend and let it sit for a while before I move on to the AFC South. Before I get into the uniform rules for each team, I want to give credit to some people, Conrad for his amazing font packs, mattwilcox for the template and gridiron-uniforms.com's uniform database. Alright, without further adieu here is my NFL Concept series. The rest of the post will serve as my guidelines (most will probably skip this, which is fine) but I wanted to include this just so I can explain the thought process that went behind designing all of the different sets for each team. (MY) NFL UNIFORM GUIDELINES Helmets: Each team is required to have at least TWO helmets (Primary, Throwback), and each team has the option to add a THIRD (Alternate), I'll get to the Alternate rule a little bit later. Jerseys: Each team is required to have FOUR jerseys (Home, Away, Alternate, Throwback). No more color rush uniforms, the Throwback does not count as the Alternate and I'll get to that in a little bit as well. Pants: Every team has to have at least TWO pants (Primary, Throwback). I think I have at least one Secondary set of pants for every team though, they are allowed up to four total but some teams do not take advantage of that rule. Teams can mix and match any of their pants as they'd like except for their throwback set. Alternate Helmet Rule: With this new set of Guidelines, some teams will have an Alternate helmet that is automatically paired with their Alternate jersey, They would be allowed to wear the Alternate helmet up to THREE times a year, basically this could happen one of two ways. Either the team would be allowed to wear the Alternate helmet with their Primary Home and Away jersey once each and with their Alternate uniform once or if they choose to wear their Alternate jersey twice during the season, that would allow them to wear their Alternate helmet only one more time with either their Primary Home or Away. Alternate Jersey Rule: Each team is only allowed to wear their Alternate jerseys TWICE a year. They do not have to choose to do so and if this were reality, it would not be a requirement to even wear the jersey once every season. The Alternate jersey is a requirement mainly for reasons to allow teams to have a different option and use it as a merchandise tool instead of the NFL's current Color Rush. THROWBACK WEEK (THANKSGIVING): Throwbacks get separated from the rest of the bunch, this is my personal favorite rule. I used to love watching teams wear throwbacks on Thanksgiving week so I decided to make it a rule that every team will wear a retro-inspired uniform during the week/weekend of 11/24/16-11/27/16. Each uniform takes inspiration from various eras in each team's history, some will be based on one retro set more than others, while some teams actually piece together more of a Fauxback uniform (Expansion teams especially). Okay so that covers it all. Sorry for all of the writing, if you made it this far please don't get bored. I'm going to keep the uniform post short and sweet but I've put a lot of thought into this project so I wanted to try and avoid questions about things such as Alternates and Throwbacks.
So I was working on a few concepts and and they had white helmets so I got the idea to do a league where every team has a white helmet. The concepts that follow are based on that premise. First up is the AFC North. I will start with Baltimore. I simplified the color scheme and went with just purple black and white of course. Next up is Cincinnati. I had a similar concept to this before which I re worked a little. I really like the contrast the white helmet gives this set. Next is Cleveland. I went the opposite way of NIKE, but liked the drop shadow that Cleveland has used. The helmet, even in white, just looked wrong with any kind of logo. Pittsburgh is last, changed things up a little more with this one.
