Recommended Posts

Man, this is awesome. Really, really great job here. Wish the Jags would've taken the same steps and the Titans.... well. Great job, Miami!

The team with the least buzz ends up being the best change!

Sorry if this has already been asked and answered, but @BrandMooreArt I know you work heavily with marketing materials/social/etc with the Dolphins, so I'm curious, were you involved much with this change, or was it more of a "here's what we came up with, now you present it" type of situation? Did your creative team have much input, or was it mostly ownership/Nike putting this together?

 

i started working with the Dolphins in February of 2016 and things were just kicking off then. during my first week, i got briefed into "Project Mayhem" and we did a lot of internal research and concepts. this was driven by our CEO and Creative Director; they wanted to do something different because neither of them were there in 2013 when the uniforms/logos were designed. in the end, its still Mr Ross's team/brand and we didn't want to hit him with too much as if to say "you got it all wrong! lets change it all!". the final direction to "remove blue" was our CEO's idea and we worked with Nike to make the perfect choice of orange; something unique to the league even though its still very close to browns, broncos, and old orange. this was probably a very unique approach to the uniform design where we (team) made teh decisions and Nike more or less filled teh order

 

on to schedule release. will be back on this evening

You guys keep on saying this is the best Nike has done.

But I feel like this had to be more of the dolphins doing and asking Nike to change the orange and show it more.

 

Edit: and the post right above mines confirms that, haha.

Props to Garfinkle. He "gets" the Dolphins brand more than Mike Dee ever did...

On a side note, the angle of the dolphin on the sleeve is ridiculous. Looks like it is blasting into outer space...

So long and thanks for all the fish.

Great change by the Dolphins.  I didn't think that just changing the shade of orange and making a handful of tweaks would have made such a difference.  The Jags should have done that to their last set and it would have been so much better than what they released today.

While I'll always prefer the classic logo, I think a lot of folks disenchantment with the previous uniform was unfairly directed toward the modern logo....now I have a hunch the furor will die down somewhat.

I think that's true on this board, but I suspect regular fans that don't like the current logo are less likely to let this improvement shift that much.

@BrandMooreArt , did we lose the tramp stamp? It is the one element of the uniform we can't see in any of the pics.

 

Love the updated look though.  So much better without the blue.

 

Looks like the trampstamp was moved to the inside collar. With that said, kinda wish the inside collar also included palms or something on either side of "Miami".

Seeing the new jerseys on Fanatics is awesome. Just a great update.

It's really weird... on the other Dolphin thread, we were all talking about what a mess that font is... it's still not a good font by any stretch, but with that single, stronger orange outline it just looks so much cleaner.

 

Great work.

It's funny to me as a Padres fan that Tom Garfinkel is responsible for this great jersey, since he's also responsible for this less great jersey:

In a vacuum, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that jersey.

This is so excellent...

 

The only thing that slightly irks me is that the new darker shade of orange doesn't compliment the current shade of aqua as the old (Tennessee Volunteer) orange did.

Don't get me wrong, the moving back to a more red-orange color was far and away the right move; I just would have liked to have seen them go a shade lighter (like 1645 instead of 1655) so the aqua and coral have a little more contrast.

On the throwbacks with the darker aqua jerseys (at least, I think they are slightly darker, maybe @BrandMooreArt can confirm that for me), the new/original orange looks phenomenal... but maybe that's the road the Dolphins go down next time.

There's also not a lot right.

I really like these jerseys. Such a small but substantial improvement for Miami.
