NFL REDESIGN (Bills 10/16)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! With the 2018 season quickly approaching, I'm going to start posting a series that I've been working on since before I knew this place existed.

For each NFL franchise, I've created a new uniform and logo set. Some are simply modernizations of classic looks, while others will be more radical changes.

The vector template I'm using is a combination of parts from a few existing templates that I modified to fit the appearance of andrewharrington's incredible template. 

After I've posted all the teams using the 2D template, I'll be presenting them division-by-division using a realistic 3D presentation I created myself.

Until then, I'll be putting out my concepts in no particular order. I've got designs together 28 of the 32 teams so far. Most of them were created over the course of this summer. I'm starting college in a few days so I wanted to get as much work done as I could while I still had the time.

 

AFC

East

Buffalo Bills

Miami Dolphins

New England Patriots

New York Jets

North

Baltimore Ravens - update

Cincinnati Bengals - orange helmet

Cleveland Browns

Pittsburgh Steelers

South

Houston Texans

Indianapolis Colts

Jacksonville Jaguars

Tennessee Titans

West

Denver Broncos

Kansas City Chiefs

Las Vegas Raiders

Los Angeles Chargers

 

NFC
East

Dallas Cowboys

New York Giants

Philadelphia Eagles

Washington Redskins

North

Chicago Bears

Detroit Lions

Green Bay Packers

Minnesota Vikings

South

Atlanta Falcons

Carolina Panthers - update

New Orleans Saints

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

West

Arizona Cardinals

Los Angeles Rams

San Francisco 49ers

Seattle Seahawks

 

 

First up is the Cincinnati Bengals, inspired by their color-rush uniform's block font and emphasis on white.

The helmet design, which more accurately depicts the way the striping on a tiger's head actually works, is borrowed from a concept I've seen floating around for a few years. It's such a good idea that I built the rest of the team's visual identity around it.

The number font is a custom block font I built. It's very similar to the one the Jaguars just released, but that was after I had already finished this concept.

For the logo, I wanted to make a more aggressive, snarling cat with a lot of movement. Pretty happy with the way it turned out!

Enjoy! C+C is greatly appreciated!

I second GT, everything about this is perfect, but the helmets should always be orange for the Bengals

Well one of the Ohio teams would need to go White at some point.... it was either Cleveland or Cincinnati and the Bengals would have to go White at some point.

It's pretty good "thumbs up"

Here's a version with the helmet colors flipped for the orange fans out there. I like this look too, but if you squint it just looks like the Browns. I'm using the white helmet to differentiate between the two teams.

Next up is the Minnesota Vikings!

My idea here was to marry their current identity with their late 90's/early 00's look, with consistent striping all the way around.

The logo is a modern interpretation of the classic Hubenthal Norseman.

C+C appreciated!

Excellent work! I love the white helmets for the Bengals and the two new logos are fantastic. I really don't have any suggestions, just keep up the good work!

Love the Vikings, the logo is great, the jersey looks bare without the Vikings wordmark though

Um the striping on the purple pants does not match the white pants.

Let me clarify. The striping isn’t the same pattern but it’s still consistent. The striping goes white-purple-yellow-purple in all formats. There are a lot of different ways to achieve striping consistency, this is just a way you don’t see all the time.

I think you can still incorporate white into the Bengals helmet and have it match what tiger stripes look like by fading the orange to white at the bottom of the helmet. It doesn't have to be a gradual fade either (which wouldn't look great). The actually fade at the bottom of the tiger is not that gradual either, but that's where the motivation of the orange to white fade comes from.19e5e863dfefe166e6a670534c5f70ea.jpeg

Why is Andy Dalton #6 and AJ Green #14?

 

Good catch. I have no idea what I was thinking.

Yeah I get the wordmark thing. I think it looks off above Diggs' 14 so I'm leaving it off of this concept, but it might make its way into the final.

True. It's almost more of a forum blue. Either way, I'm not that concerned about it, cause in real life it would look different in every photo anyway.

I tried it out. The helmet looks great on its own but it doesn't fit as well with the rest of the uniforms. Good suggestion though!

 

Next up is the Baltimore Ravens.

This one's a little unconventional. I'm going for a dark, gothic look for B-more, complete with a shimmering, art deco take on raven feathers for the shoulders.

The raven's eye and the swooshes have a yellow-red gradient, a reference to the colors of the Maryland flag.

Pants and socks could be mixed and matched. They'd probably go monochrome once at home and at least once on the road over the course of the season.

The font is an adjusted version of 'Avenged for Yourself'. It's definitely not your standard block, but I think its perfect for a modern gothic look.

C+C is greatly appreciated. Happy Labor Day everyone!

Baltimore is amazing. The red/yellow gradient is an excellent way to incorporate the flag without randomly stuffing it everywhere. That purple jersey is a thing of beauty! The only think I might change is maybe making the helmet stripe purple? I don't know how well that would work, but it might be worth trying. Good work!

I agree that a purple helmet stripe might be best, maybe using the feather pattern? Also, perhaps a black stripe/yoke on the pants and jerseys for the feather pattern to keep that purple to black look.
