  1. Welcome to my little thought experiment. This idea has been used on this forum before. It is the swapping of logos/history of NFL teams. For this project, I limited myself to a few guidelines. 1. The starting point is 1960. As I saw this as the first year as a whole that logos really began appearing on helmets. 2. I would limit myself to just helmets. 3. When matching up colors between teams, darker colors should substitute for darker colors, brighter for brighter, etc. 4. Black, grey, or silver can be used to outline a logo even if it's not part of the team colors (the KC rule). 5. Clip art was to be avoided, but if possible I would try to incorporate elements of existing team logos. 6. When swapping logos, try to avoid the same type. For example, the Cardinals is a head logo. So, I shouldn't use the Panthers as their replacement. However, there were a few times when I did have to ignore this guideline. 7. I tried to keep the "new" history somewhat plausible. It is possible that couple of choices are questionable, but I think I can justify them. As part of the history, I switched up the AFL and NFL names. The revised logos are below. Team colors were taken Colorwerx's website. While I used MG's Helmets and Gridiron Uniforms for guides to things such as logo size and helmet/facemask colors. As to not to spam the thread, I plan to only post 4 teams a day. They will be presented in alphabetical order. Please enjoy and any C&C is appreciated. Also if anyone wants the helmet template, I do have it available as a GIMP file (xcf).

I'd love to drive up there if I had the free time for this. For those not interested in clicking the link, the first session is going to be on the history of the uniform. A later monthly session will be on the history of the helmet.

  4. I just got these 2 new Helmet Templates and I have using it non-stop and figured I would start a thread showing off my concepts designs and I courage for anyone to share their concept designs as well. Also I started a new instagram called "Big Easy Concepts" It is all my designs and work. Check it out! Please share with me your feedback and your own designs!
  5. In a recent SportsLogos news post about Riddell giving a helmet to the Houston Astros with a design based on the team, author Demetrius Bell brought up the popularity of "crossover designs" in the concept world, combining a sports' uniform with the identity of another sports' team. In the end of the article, he asked the readers which baseball team would look best on a football helmet, which immediately sparked my imagination. After having done a handful of them, I decided I wanted to continue the project as far as my motivation would take me. Sports logos and design is one of my biggest interests, and this kind of project is simple, and addicting. I'm going to try and make what I think would be a realistic interpretation of how MLB (and perhaps other sports) teams' helmets would look like if they played football, and maybe a few alternates and throwbacks in the mix too. Not sure how much I will do, but I figure I might as well set it up just in case. I'll make a new post and add to the OP when I make new additions. I'm considering doing MLB and NHL requests, but only based on logos/identities, not original concepts! Clicking each helmet will bring you to the full-size version. MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL AMERICAN LEAGUE NATIONAL LEAGUE Baltimore Orioles Arizona Diamondbacks Boston Red Sox Atlanta Braves Chicago White Sox Chicago Cubs Cleveland Indians Cincinnati Reds Detroit Tigers Colorado Rockies Houston Astros Los Angeles Dodgers Kansas City Royals Miami Marlins Los Angeles Angels Milwaukee Brewers Minnesota Twins New York Mets New York Yankees Philadelphia Phillies Oakland Athletics Pittsburgh Pirates Seattle Mariners San Diego Padres Tampa Bay Rays San Francisco Giants Texas Rangers St. Louis Cardinals Toronto Blue Jays Washington Nationals ALTERNATES/THROWBACKS: Oakland: alternate (2011-current) / throwback (1993-94) NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE The only ones I've done so far are the Florida Panthers in celebration of their rebranding, the Carolina Hurricanes alternate, and the Pittsburgh Penguins 1992-2002 throwback. This format and project are both a work in progress. Feedback on either would be appreciated!
  6. What's up with metallic colors being dull the past few years, especially in football? Also, what's up with regular colors (purple, black, yellow, blue) being given matte finishes in football helmets? Are the two trends really one and the same? Personally I don't much care for either.
  7. I decided I wanted to do a MLB helmets concept. Here is the AL and NL East divisions. Notes: If the logo or helmet is half and half, there are two helmets/decals. Not following NFL helmet rule
  8. There's a great article on the 49ers' short-lived rebranding in 1991: When the 49ers changed their logo, and fans revolted This reversal could never happen today, but lucky for the San Francisco fans they were able to dump it almost immediately. The new 49ers helmet logo was the third order of business at the press conference on Feb. 13, 1991, and the details didn’t appear until the ninth paragraph of San Francisco Chronicle writer Ira Miller’s next-day story. But it would become a generational blunder, and arguably the biggest logo-related disaster in Bay Area sports history. After front page stories mocked the new design, and fans revolted, team owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr. took just six days to reverse his decision and keep the old logo – the same one that remains in 2016. Well, almost. They made some minor tweaks a couple years later, and that's the one (with a tweak to the old colors) that they still wear today. 1968 - 1995 1996 - 2008 2009 - today
  9. Bizarrely, I haven't been able to find such a thread in the archives, at least not in the past few years. Anyway, I think this could be a fun topic to discuss. Which Super Bowls just looked great? Which ones were a disaster (*cough cough, last year's*)? Also, teams wearing white in the Super Bowl are, thus far, 31-18 if I recall correctly, with at least the four biggest margins of victory (49ers over Broncos by 45 points, Bears over Patriots by 36 points, Cowboys over Bills by 35 points, Seahawks over Broncos by 35 points). It's a small sample size, but that's still a bigger difference than you'd expect. Do you think it's just a coincidence, or does wearing white somehow convey a psychological advantage?
  10. I've never liked the NFL's one helmet rule, and never will. I'm gonna go ahead and break it right now with the first 32in32! Similar projects have been made over the years, but if you haven't been around for one or are curious what my rules are, here it is: All helmets must be a different color than the primary helmet, unless there is a gradient (cough cough, Dolphins).Most helmets will have oversized specific parts of a logo be a little ways out there.MOST IMPORTANT: Only one helmet per day except updates, that's why its called a 32in32, 32 alt helmets in 32 days.Once a team's day is over, there will be no updating it until the project's overHere's Arizona:
  11. Navy to Wear Under Armour-DesignedDifferent position groups will wear different ships on their helmets. ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- The Navy football team will wear Under Armour-Designed "Navy Fleet" uniforms and hand-painted helmets for the Army-Navy Game presented by USAA on Dec. 12 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia at 3 PM on CBS. The uniform is inspired by and pays homage to seven of the historic ships that make up the U.S. Naval Fleet. Each ship is detailed on one of seven hand-painted helmets that each player will wear, assigned by position. Additionally, the rally cry "damn the torpedoes!" is featured on the uniform as a nod to Admiral Farragut's historic Naval victory at the Battle of Mobile Bay in 1864. Design Details:• Uniform font replicates the design and font used on Navy ships.• Battleship gray color featured on the cleats, baselayer sleeves and jersey shoulders.• Eagle, Globe and Anchor Marine Corps logo highlighted on the uniform pant.• Baselayer features the overhead sketch of the seven Naval ships featured on the helmets.• "Damn the Torpedoes!" scripted on the uniform pant and jersey hem as a reminder of the historic battle cry that rallies the U.S. Naval Fleet.Helmet Details and Position Assignment: • Linebacker: Cruiser- Provides anti-air defense and packs the biggest punch of Naval surface ships representative of the linebackers on the Navy football team. • Defensive Back: Destroyer- Known for significant fire power, speed, and anti-missile defense as are Navy's defensive backs. • Wide Receiver: Submarine- Predominantly utilized as blockers, wide receivers play a key role in driving the Navy rush attack, taking on a stealth-like persona as they blend into the rhythm of the offense but bring significant fire power when called upon, just like a Naval submarine. • Lineman: Amphibious Assault Ships- Just as a lineman's job is the create a hole for a running back or linebacker, these ships are utilized to establish the "beach head" that enables the invading force to gain access and ultimately accomplish their objective. • Quarterback: Aircraft Carrier- The QB of the Naval Fleet, the aircraft carrier is the ultimate decision maker; the "quick strike" weapon of the Naval fleet. • Running Back: Littoral Combat Ship- Like running backs, these fast and nimble ships can navigate through both crowded shallow and deep waters. • Kicker/Special Teams: Minesweeper- Much like the specific task of the Navy special teams, this small ship has a unique mission of identifying and eliminating mines. http://www.navysports.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/113015aaa.html
  12. Happy Memorial Day everyone! Ok, so a little background on this. I've done many NFL Redesigns in the past, I believe this is my 4th attempt. I had one going pretty strong in the late summer of last year, but the start of school interfered and I never got back to it. This year, I have many already pre-done to prevent me falling behind and now that summer is just beginning, I will have much more free time on my hands. I believe my series will be the best I've had yet and hope everyone enjoys this. I will be doing logo sets first and probably going back to uniforms after that. So for now, just be ready for logos. First up, The Arizona Cardinals. ARIZONA CARDINALS I've seen many different approaches done with the Cardinals uniform-wise, but logo-wise, not so much. This was the first one I did in this series, and did so many months ago, so it might need improvement. There's some stuff I need to fix, but I can't quite figure out what. I haven't added a wordmark, but I might soon. Suggestions Appreciated, Hope you enjoy this series that I hope and plan to finally complete. There's been a lot of NFL Redesigns on the board lately so I hope this starting with logos makes it stand out.
  13. MLF helmets I got the idea to do this after I saw JTrainGBR83's NBA football helmets thread.
  14. The Idea behind this football League is that I wanted to bring back various football teams from different leagues and eras. I wanted to put them all into a football league and give the league a history. Any suggestions or comments are welcome. Hope everyone enjoys this concept. I will include season by season wins and losses, including playoff matchups and championship winners. Also included are the teams helmets for all teams that will be used for team bio's. First post will be the original 6 teams that started the league in 1930. Also I forgot to mention, teams wins and losses are completely random. League schedules were made for each season for all teams and scores for each game were generated at random.
  15. I will be doing NFL and NCAA helmet redesigns. I however take no credit for the logos that I am using. Only thing I take credit for are the redesigns of the teams helmets. C&C is appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to look.
  16. As some of you know, I have taken a break from my NFL series so I can get some ideas and try using an updated version of the template. To help me take my mind off this, and give me something to do while I'm not doing the NFL, I'm starting an NCAA alternate helmet series First up, Washington It's basically the same gold helmet, but with the Husky logo. Drop your requests below! Table of Contents Washington (This post) Tulane Vanderbilt 1 Oregon Vanderbilt 1 Vanderbilt 2 Wisconsin
  17. In the last few weeks I have been playing with Microsoft paint and I wanted to share some of the Helmets I created so I could get some feedback on them. First up is South Florida. I made the inside of the bull logo gradient to go along with the newly added gradient on the basketball uniforms.
  18. Ignore this thread please i made a new one containing my new work
  19. We've discussed the latest helmets from Riddell and while they are rated higher in safety, their aesthetics have been questioned. We've seen some samples of college football helmets where placement of decals has led to some ugly looks. The NFL has standards for just about every aspect of a player's uniform, trying to get things as consistent from player to player as possible. The latest Riddell helmets leave little room for a decal and the details/vents/grooves seem to conflict visually with designs. Knowing how much time, energy, and money the NFL has invested in branding for each team, will they, or can they ever ask Riddell for a safe, but cleaner-looking helmet? I cringe to think of how the Vikings, Buccaneers, or Patriots will look.
  20. Welcome to the NFL Champions League! Every year, the NFL division champions play four other division champions from the previous season. Of those games, which division champion does the best against the other division champions? That's the NFL Champions League, the league-within-a-league. The origin: My favorite new sports thing is the UEFA Champions League (I'm relatively new to the inner workings of world soccer). What a fantastic idea to have a full season-within-a-season of just the top teams from all the European soccer leagues. Along with relegation/promotion, it’s something I really wish we had in North American sports leagues. I started thinking about how a football Champions League could work with only one actual league in the entire world when I realized that there IS sort of a way the NFL pits its best teams against each other each year. Since 2002, the NFL has had eight divisions of four teams, and a pretty rigorous way they schedule the games. Basically, each division plays against all the teams in one division in their conference and one division in the other conference. By default, that means each division winner is already playing two other division winners. Two games each season are played against the remaining two division winners from your conference. So each season, every division winner plays at least four other division winners from the previous season. It’s not a complete schedule of division champions playing all other division champions, but it provides for a great sampling each season. Scoring and ranking: Each victory is worth two Champions League points, and the Champions League winner is the team that accumulates the most points. If two or more teams are tied at the end of the regular season, the first tie-breakers are any Champions League matchups that occur in the NFL playoffs. Head-to-head matchup, if one occurs, is looked at first. Barring that, accumulated CL playoff points is used to determine the winner. If it's still tied, then it's regular season point differential, followed by playoff point differential in any Champions League games. There are up to four playoff games that can also be CL games resulting in a potential additional 8 points. This results in a maximum potential point total of 16 points if it defeats a fellow Champions League team in the wildcard round, two conference rounds and the Super Bowl. To date, no team has played eight Champions League game in one season, and only one has played as many as seven games. The schedule: Each week, I’m going to reveal the results of the previous Champions League seasons, which began in 2003 (based on the eight 2002 division champions, the first year of the new schedule format). I’m also going to highlight the Champions League games from this season that have already occurred, and from here on out I’ll give weekly previews and recaps of any Champions League games as they take place. The next Champions League game isn’t until NFL Week 12 when the Patriots face the Broncos, and the Redskins take on the 49ers. I just want to reiterate that these results are based on the actual NFL games that are played, not a fantasy or simulated league. That’s the background of what this is and why I’m doing it. Up next are the logos and symbols of the NFL Champions League.
  21. Just wanted to show off some logos & helmet mockups for my NFL redesign. C&C is always appreciated! Jerseys & more teams to follow!
  22. This conversation sprung out of the Vikings uniform thread where we started comparing helmets. Which DIVISION do you think has the best helmets as a group?
  23. Looks as though Tulane is going to have a multitude of helmets for this upcoming season. I have to admit, I really like the large green wave on white. I don't care for the wave dropped out to white though (the one hidden at the bottom). The matte gray is disappointing to me because the school has a great and unique color scheme, and just seems a bit arbitrary at this point.
  24. Just wondering for you guys that do tons of concepts, I'm looking for the 2D Nike style uniforms that many of you use, as well as some helmet templates. I've had the idea to create some concepts for a while now, but I've never come across any good templates. Can anyone help me out? Much appreciated!
  25. Hey guys, for my latest project I decided to make white helmets for college football teams. I really like white helmets, I think they look nice, so I wanted to make alternate helmets teams could use. First up, the Pac-12: South Division Arizona Love their secondary logo so I stuck it on a helmet. Also used their main logo. Arizona State Their current white helmets have the maroon colored trident, I though it would look better with the yellow trident. I also created a shining sun for the back of the helmet. Colorado Just used their main logo, not much else for them. Utah Three different designs: 1. Main helmet with normal logo. 2. All red design. 3. Black and white design. USC Main Trojans logo with gold face mask. UCLA One of my favorite designs out of all these is the first UCLA helmet. Yellow face mask with baby blue "UCLA". I also used their Boston Red Sox looking "B" to put on the back. Also included is an all black and white design. North Division Cal Two different designs: Yellow Cal script and one with the blue Cal script. On the back I have their alternate bear logo. Stanford Mostly similar to their current helmets but instead of the stripe I put their tree logo. Oregon They have never used white helmets with yellow wings (surprisingly), so I put one together that I think would match up well with their white uni's. (although Oregon uniforms never look good). Also included is an all black and white design which is my least favorite that I made. Oregon State Used their main "OS" logo with an orange face mask and on the other helmet I used their old beaver logo. On the back is "OSU" written vertically in the Oregon State font. Washington Their husky logo is very nice so I decided to make it really big on the helmet, like some teams have done before, like Boise State with their Bronco logo. Not sure about the color of the face mask here... Washington State Simple logo with "Cougars" on the back and silver face mask. The other has a silver logo with maroon colored outline.
