  1. It seems like every year as details trickle out that teams are getting new uniforms, some random 'source' pops up claiming to have seen the uniform in question and provides an over the top description that sends this board into a frenzy. Maybe it's not a good idea to enable these rumors with mock ups but I thought it would be fun to take these crazy ideas and make concepts out of them. Cleveland Browns The rumor: White helmets, 'total overhaul' Added numbers to the helmet, reversed the number/shadow colors on the home and away. Took the notched stripe design from their current look and kept it floating within the sleeve a la OK State/extended it further down the pant leg so that it's almost a full stripe again. White striped socks for all, orange alt, and white fauxback for the Color Rush. Denver Broncos The rumor: the Color Rush jersey becomes the primary Kept the logo and number font from the current look, brightened the colors back to their earlier shades, added white and blue jerseys/pants. Orange remains the Color Rush. Here's every Broncos concept on this board ever Denver: Thanks for checking these out, I have a few more that I'll be posting in a bit.
  2. 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.
  3. I was looking through the NFL logos on the mother ship and this one stood out to me as one to try to rework. The shape has always seemed off to me and I realized that it is because this head was lifted off of the full (human) bodied Chicago/St. Louis Cardinals logos so it doesn't give much of a full bodied bird feel. The head seems to taper down into a human-like neck area. So here is my take: No highlight vs highlight? I'm still undecided as to whether it would "fly" as an NFL logo or if it's just a nice cardinal logo. C&C appreciated.
  4. 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:
  5. DouglasQuaid Vikings Concept Uniforms

    I finally decided to post my Minnesota Vikings concept that I made in January. The concept is based on the idea that there is a home/away set, color rush, and a throwback alternate. I based the main set on the vikings current uniforms while also implementing the concept drawings by Hubenthal. I used the current Vikings font but without the serifs, added a white facemask, and tweaked the horn logo slightly. For the color rush uniform I decided to base it on the all white uniforms the vikings wore from 1969-1995 with the UCLA stripes. I based the alternate/throwback on the 1965 uniform set, where the numbers are outlined and the stocks dont have stripes.
  6. Super Bowl MVP Trophy Change?

    Today while poking around in all the post-Super Bowl recaps and so forth I saw something that caught my attention - something which I somehow missed: evidently for at least four years ago, the NFL changed the Pete Rozelle Super Bowl MVP Trophy... Old: Current: Was XLIX the first year of this change?
  7. Super Bowl LIII Logo Concept

    Well Super Bowl LII is officially history. Congrats to the Eagles on winning their first Super Bowl. It's now time to begin looking ahead to Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta next year, and as expected the NFL has churned out yet another generic template logo for the game. So without further ado, here's my concept for Super Bowl LIII next year. Let me know what you think; always appreciate the feedback!
  8. Super Bowl LII Predictions

    Okay. State your straight-up (without point spread) predicted winner of Super Bowl LII. Feel free to add whatever other game-related predictions you'd like. I don't have a dog in the fight, but I think the Patriots are going to win.
  9. I am trying to push myself into new styles of design in 2018 Fraser Davidson's Tom Brady logo video inspired me to start logo-meets-portrait designs I want to develop my highlighting and overall economy of design, so any feedback is appreciated!! ( Doug Flutie was overrated!) https://www.behance.net/gallery/61682303/Rob-Johnson-USC-Trojans https://dribbble.com/shots/4183726-Rob-Johnson-USC-Trojans-Logo
  10. Yes! It is a horse/D combo! I made the D more western and made the horse look less "noodly". Let me know what you think (preferably be C&C).
  11. The Tennessee Titans' logo and uniforms and I have had a bit of an on-again-off-again relationship over the years. When I first remember seeing them in the Super Bowl against the Rams in 2000, I was in love with the logo, cuz, you know, FLAMES!!!!!!!! I was five then. As I got older, I soured on the logo, thinking the flames were over the top and the Titans would be better off using the sword alternate logo or the thumbtack roundel. The Titans' refusal to wear reasonable uniforms combos also drives me nuts. The helmet striping doesn't really go with anything and the brashier stripes on the pants don't feel right with the yoke, which has gotten too small over the years. The Uniforms have some good ideas, but I'm not crazy about the execution. Lately, the uniforms are still a mess, but I have come around on the idea of flames for the Titans. I think that is something they can own and it really just works. I do not care for the T logo. Besides the comparison to a thumbtack as far as it's shape goes, it feels small contained within the shield or roundel or whatever the circle is. The Titans logo should be big, "titanic" and the T should be the focal point, IMO. I threw out the bathwater, but kept the baby. The colors remain the same, but the Flaming T is bigger and bolder. I don't think this is a finished product but I'm also not entirely sure what parts of the logo needs more work so, please feel free to offer and C&C. I would really appreciate it. Once the logo gets to a good place, I'll work on some new uniforms to go with the updated logo. Thanks for having a look.
  12. Connecting Old & New Broncos Fans

    Hey all, this is my first post on this forum in over 2 years. I'm working on a class assignment that asks us to create a brand that appeals to all generations. I decided to pick Denver because if you ever go to (I'm forever calling it) Mile High Stadium, you'll notice there is an internal fan base battle over the new navy and orange color scheme versus the traditional blue and orange from the OG Elway days. I just took some screenshots of the concepts and logo I have created so far because I'm really looking for some C&C on the next steps before I fully turn this into a presentable concept and project. So before I can waste anymore of your time.. Here is my idea. Blend both the Navy and traditional blue into a color scheme that works, evolve the new bronco head with the very famous "D" that has previously been introduced in their most recent Color Rush, and throw in some millennial sprinkles like a mountain and red rocks shadows in the numbering to give everyone a little taste of what they want the Broncos to look like. Again, C&C is very much appreciated! This would be the Broncos Alternate and "Color Rush" The Blue Color Rush and Alternate jersey's should design would be based off the City of Denver Flag. I removed the Sun from the jersey because of Nike's swoosh placement in the NFL. Up Close rough mockup featuring Nike's now famous sublimation pattern of Red Rocks Amphitheater.
  13. 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.
  14. Super Bowl LII Field

    Looks like they'll be using the same Super Bowl field template from last year with team logo sitting next to team wordmark. The compressed nature of the Eagles wordmark will leave a lot of blank space to the right while I assume the Patriots endzone will look the same as last year's
  15. Super Bowl LIII logo

    I hope this is just a fan mock-up or a placeholder... (if fake I can update the thread when the real one comes out)
  16. Finally got some time to mess around with these hockey uniform templates. I thought I'd try doing hockey uniform versions of the 4 final teams in the NFL playoffs. Never did a mash up before so thought I'd try it out. Wanted to see what the thoughts were. It's the Patriots, Jaguars, Vikings and Eagles. I took various parts of the design from elements of the football uniform, IE: Pant shell stripes from pants, socks from socks or sleeve striping and jersey elements influenced by the elements on the football jerseys. Really enjoyed doing these and experimenting a bit. I didn't change/adjust any of the team logos. I just used the versions that the teams use in the NFL. Hopefully this works.
  17. We've already had multiple threads about the best-looking uni matchups in Super Bowl history. With the conference title games upon us today, let's look at some of the best ALMOST Super Bowl matchups. The rules are: 1. Both teams were in their respective conference title games that season. 2. One or both lost said title games. 3. They have never played each other in a Super Bowl in any year. 4. The pic posted shows the most likely uniform matchup if they had played that year. Here are a few: Super Bowl XIV (1979 season) - Oilers vs. Buccaneers: Super Bowl XV (1980 season) among MANY others - Raiders vs. Cowboys (pic actually from 1980 season): Super Bowl XX (1985 season) - Dolphins vs. Bears (pic actually from 1985 season): Super Bowl XIV (1989 season) - Broncos vs. Rams: Super Bowl XXVIII (1993 season), the fourth time in a six-year span that both these teams were in their respective title games together; in fact, one or the other appeared in seven straight Super Bowls, but never both - Bills vs. 49ers:
  18. Super Bowl LIII Logo

    With the Super Bowl LIII logo expected to be revealed in a little over a week from now (who are we kidding, it'll look something like this: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C4RsXzdUoAAcFf5.jpg), I decided to throw my hat in the ring on this one to make a concept of my own. I know it is a little pixelated, but all I've got to work with (or know how to use at least) is MS Paint. I'm still a bit unsure if I've got the colors nailed down, or if I should add a dark outline to the whole logo for when it is displayed on a light background, or jerseys and a field. Let me know what you all think!
  19. Here are the teams Arizona: Wow!!! I started my NFL series that I'LL TOTALLY finish!!!! Atlanta: That new logo is trash because it has red highlights! I can fix that! (On a serious note, death to piping) Baltimore: I feel like this is an even bigger F-U to the city of Cleveland Buffalo: (EDIT) I had a stupid quip here but I accidentally made the Giants uniform that everyone makes on here so I think I'm going to take the lazy route (as one does for an average NFL series) and reuse everything here for NYG Carolina: Was it too creative?? (rhetorical, it was obviously yes) Chicago: Okay but seriously though, am I getting too original in my concepts? Cincinnati: Okay but like block numbers really add to the creativity of this one Cleveland: Sooooooooooo, like, why exactly do y'all care about the "tradition" of a 20 year old team? @raysox is older than the Browns, I should be allowed to go crazy for one of these. Dallas: I'm bored at this point. Denver: Honestly, like, who needs originality? the old sets were fine, slap on their current navy and BOOM! original content! Detroit: Lmao nvm no one cares about this team (sans I assume @drdougfresh and I think @ZionEagle. Correct me if I'm wrong) Green Bay: Why exactly were they using Reebok fabrics again? That is a serious question, someone please answer. Houston: So like, the Oilers, but not. (EDIT: Never mind, it's just the Oilers) Indianapolis: Jacksonville: I'm not even lying, I genuinely hate y'all for loving double outlines and hating the new Jags logo. Kansas City: this is the second time I had to create my own brush in illustrator, i.e. I'm working too hard on this. LA Chargers: This. LA Rams: you know what's great? the ability to copy a previous set off of gridiron uniforms and passing it off as an original design. Miami: I'm missing out on some pretty iconic striping patterns in the name of consistency. I hate that. Minnesota: Joke patent pending New England: Oh? You don't like the way the 1 is serifed? You sure? Shut up and deal with it. New Orleans: should I make a Mardi Gras alt? (EDIT: Let's try this again.) NY Giants: So like my Bills concept, but not? P.S. here's an alt. NY Jets: Please help I left my phone in a friend's car Oakland: I'll make tacky vegas uniform with more gold than their hockey team. Also, I have ranked the 9 lids stores i could find in Houston, and by hat selection alone, I'd go to the willowbroook mall one by the food court or the Memorial City one by the Target.
  20. An Arizona Cardinals Concept

    Its been a while since I've done a concept uniform on here, so I thought I would try and update my Arizona Cardinals. - Added a sandy tan color to accent the white and red instead of black on the uniforms. - Used a simple striping pattern across all three uniform pieces, I've been sick of the current piping and striping we currently have. - Made the red a little brighter and bolder than the current shade which is more like an actual cardinal in my opinion, not a huge change but still noticeable. - Thought about adding red pants, only for the away uniform, but I decided to keep it a non alternate concept to start. - Credit to Logan Weaver for the template!

  21. NCAA to NFL Jersey Swaps

    Hello all! With the college football season all but over, it's time to look to the NFL Draft. The Cleveland Browns completed their winless season and have the first overall pick as well as the 4th overall pick (from the Texans). Sam Darnold appears to be on a fast track to Cleveland, so here he is in a Browns jersey. This is my first ever jersey swap and I would love to get all of your guys' thoughts on what i can improve. More guys to come! Thanks for looking. ORIGINAL: JERSEY SWAP:
  22. NFL 2018 changes

    Any and all predictions/feedback welcome. I have heard where the Titans are planning a slight rebrand. What are some other trends we can expect in the fall? Will #ColorRush still be a part of most Thursday night games? What changes introduced in 2017 will carry over (eg--the Saints wearing black jerseys all the time at home, the Chargers wearing navy pants at home and white on the road)? Will the Cowboys wear their often-jinxed blue jerseys more than once at home? I'm looking forward to everyone's input.
  23. Super Bowl Potential Uniform Matchups

    The 2017-2018 NFL Playoffs are set, and 12 teams are setting their minds on the Lombardi Trophy. But, what would be the most aesthetically beautiful Super Bowl? Here are mine. Favorite: (vikings in purple pants) Worst: Prediction:
  24. Hey everyone, With the regular season coming to a close and the playoffs gearing to start, I figured now would be a good time to post a project that I've been working on the past couple of months: an NFL Tweaks Series. This series will operate in a similar fashion to my original MLB Tweaks, with me only changing the elements of each team's identity that I find necessary. Here are some rules I went by that I figure you all should know going in: -This is an unpopular opinion, but I really do not like the use of gray facemasks on helmets, when that color cannot be found anywhere else in the identity. So you'll likely be seeing a lot of those go. -I decided to keep the idea of Color Rush uniforms, since the NFL is still technically employing it as a program. However, I decided to add a personal rule: that being the socks must always match the color of the helmet. For some teams, that leaves them with their completely monochrome looks, for others, it makes the use of entirely one color a bit less gaudy. -I'm also going to try to follow the one-helmet rule, as conceptually to maintain brand strength it's not a bad idea. -As with the MLB, the overall goal was to modernize the looks of the NFL in a clean, classic way. -Some big inspirations that I can think off throughout the making of this were Jesse Alkire's NFL series as well as @bkknight95's series, so a lot of credit goes to both of them. -I'll be posting in alphabetical order, two teams at a time. Hopefully I'll be able to have all the teams posted before the Super Bowl. So the first teams up are two that have been stuck in the early 2000's piping trend for quite a while now, the Cardinals and the Falcons. First up being the Arizona Cardinals! Logos -The primary & helmet logo stays the same, the cardinal head is a great logo. -All of the copper elements have to do with Color Rush, as you'll see in the uniforms... Uniforms -Right off the bat, it's clear that the Arizona flag was a huge inspiration in the design, with the sunrise pattern occupying the sleeve caps and the pants stripe. It also sort of has the effect of feathers, while also mimicking the multiple stripes on some of the Cardinals' inaugural uniforms. -I decided to go with sharper, more angular numbers in order to mimic the claws of a bird. -Although the primary home and away sets are the combinations shown above, the Cardinals could also wear the red pants occasionally on the road, and vice versa. -I'm not really big on the Cardinals having a black alternate, but I figured it looked "cool" with the added red & yellow. This alternate would only be used at most once a year. -The Color Rush set embraces a color that only Arizona could own: a nice shade of copper, as seen on the flag. I know it might look a little out there, but for me at least it was better than black, and embraced the entire state. Next up, here are the Atlanta Falcons! Logos -I decided to take silver out of the color scheme, and just focus on black and a bright scarlet red. The primary loses some cluttered outlines, and the helmet becomes red, as I'll explain more in the uniform section. Uniforms -I decided to go with the red helmet for the Falcons since it helps them stand out more in a division filled with black. I also think it goes better with both the red primary and black alternate jersey. -I went with a number font based on the current wordmark font, much like many Falcons concepts do. -For the striping pattern, I went with one that mimics the feather angles of the primary logo but also has some precedence in Atlanta's early history. This allows the uniform to be sharp & modern while still rooted in tradition. -For the Color Rush, I went all-red but with black numbers in order to sort of dull down all the bright red present. The striping is also slightly recolored. That's what I've got for the moment, I hope you guys are looking forward to this and I'd love to hear what you think.
  25. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/12/16/is-the-xfl-coming-back/ I know they kind of teased it at the end of that 30 for 30 special earlier this year, but I didn't think they were serious.
