8BW14's NFL Concept Thread: Indianapolis Colts (1/7)

Recommended Posts

i think someone else also had the idea of putting the bronco hair on the sleeves, and you both decided to use orange hair on orange sleeves, which makes it hard to see. Try blue hair or blue sleeve caps and the orange jerseys.

Here’s a new one for your viewing pleasure today, the Baltimore Ravens

I designed a new logo-without- the awkward B that has to be squeezed onto the logo on the left side of the helmet. I dropped gold, replacing it with a medium gray. The idea was to be dark and ominous, playing up the Edgar Allan Poe connection. I also updated the shield logo to match the new branding but lost the file so you’ll just have to squint to get a good look at it on the uniforms.

The new new uniforms feature a high gloss black helmet with the logo on either side. The number font is a custom block font, which I will post the rest of later today. On the sleeves are stylized wings. The pant stripe is also meant to mimic a wing or feather. The updated shield is used on the hip of the pants rather than the shoulders of the new uniforms. Purple is the primary home jersey, white is the road, the black remains as the alternate and the fourth purple jersey with the black yoke is my version of a Color Rush alternate. The Shield logo is prominently featured on the helmet and single color black socks help to break up the purple. I just thought it would be a fun alt to break out at home once a year.

 

Please let me know what you think. Any feedback is always welcome and thanks for taking the time to have a look.

Love the logo, getting rid of the B is always a plus. Home and Away jerseys look great, not a fan of the wing design for the sleeve, but still looks good. Black jersey is good with the exception of the numbers, I'd go white trimmed in purple to match the homes. Black and Purple pants are good, maybe adjust the stripe to have the gray completely outline the feather so the black pants aren't so odd. Gray pants look good, but not sure about having them as the primary with the purple tops. Maybe go white, black and purple pants and use a much darker gray for the color rush with a dark gray top with black yoke and purple and black numbers?

Thanks for the comment. I think I agree with you about thepant stripe and the numbers on the black jersey, no reason for them not to be white with purple trim. I’m thinking about lightening the grey all together, as is I think it kinda blends too much with the dark purple and black in the color scheme, like what the Eagles currently have going on. I’d really like to stay away from a gray jersey, doesn’t seem like it fits the brand. Thanks for the feedback though. Hopefully I will be able to make some updates soon.

Here are a few updates to the Ravens:

I lightened the gray all around, which I think is a big improvement, I changed the numbers on the black jersey from gray to white for better legibility and more consistency with the rest of the set. I also added a purple stripe to the pants stripe to better define the stripe on the black pants. I also included a larger image of the updated shield logo and a full set of numbers.

 

As alway,s let me know what you think and thanks for taking a look.

Well Happy New Year to everyone. I had a little time off over the holidays and was able to put together another Bucs concept. My original plan was to modernize/update Bucco Bruce and use a white helmet with the creamsicle/red color scheme but no matter what I did, I just couldn’t put something together that felt right. What I decide to do in the end was keep the current branding/color scheme of pewter/red/orange and the Jolly Rodger and create a sort of zombie Bucco Bruce logo:

The uniforms are a call back to the origina Pewter Pirates, but with some contemporary touches like a custom number font. The bright orange is used as sparingly as a highlight much in the same way the Seahawks used lime green on these uniforms. Rather than featuring the ship, which is a fine logo, but not well suited to a sleeve, the sleeves feature an updated skull and crossed-swords logo.

Here’s a look at the full number font, a modified block font that is a little more subtle than the trash the Bucs currently wear:

Well I’ll thanks for having a look and as always, please let me know what you think. I’d love to hear any and all feedback.

I enjoy the Buccaneers concept, the only thing i would change is make the helmet logo a alt logo for the throwback style, other than that great work.

I was inspired to do a little Colts concept over the weekend. I didn’t make any big changes because, frankly, I don’t think the Colts need any big changes. The devil is in the details here, so to speak.

I started by updating the logo and word mark. The new logo is a little bolder with fewer holes, for lack of a better word. It’s also a little more square and less vertical in its shape. The word mark is meant to be an evolution, of sorts, of the current word mark, which I think is more dated and hokey than timeless and classic.

 

The new number font is a custom block font based on the Colts’ helmet number font which I have always been a fan of, especially the 2.

The only significant changes I made to the  uniforms beyond the new font and logo were the addition of sock stripes and the change to the pants stripes which now match the single stripe on the helmet. The alternate uniforms is a  faux-back, blue jersey-edition of the throwbacks the Colts wore a couple times during  the Peyton Manning years. I think the horseshoes in the back of the helmet is a really cool unique design that more people should be aware of.

 

Well, that’s it for now. Thanks for having a look and let me know what you think. I’d love to hear some feedback. Thanks again.

Good job on the Steelers.

 

Pretty hard to come up with a Browns logo when they've never really had one. However, if you had to pick between the elf and the dog, which one would you choose?

Elf all the way
