NFL REDESIGN (Bills 10/16)

Recommended Posts

Not saying if it would look better or not, but I'd like the see the Rams' helmet with a logo stylized like the ram's horn in the logo.  Just for consistency's sake.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I'll be posting updates periodically.

 

Next up, fresh off their week 1 upset, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers!

I have to admit, I don't hate their current threads as much as everyone on these boards seems to. I like the addition of silver and the color blocking, but the execution was lacking in a few areas, namely the numbers. So instead of completely scrapping the look, I'm attempting to build off of it.

Sword-like imagery is my main design element here, featured in the striping, numbers, and reinforced in the logos. The logo set is very similar to their current ones, but I think I made some significant improvements. I constructed it with bolder, more organic lines, and I think the skull ended up a lot more menacing and visually interesting. An updated ship logo, originally intended to be the primary, is featured on the pants.

Black is removed from all logos. Orange is relegated to logos-only.

I also put together an all-white set to suit Tampa's climate. White pants could be paired with the red jersey a couple times a year to mix it up.

I look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts!

That logo update is fire I like the removal of the orange from the unis, the red feels like it stands out more without it. Are the stripes and numbers still reflective like the trim on the currents?

The first word that came through my mind when I saw this Bucs concept: BOLD. That set is simple but bold-looking. It draws comparisons with the new Jaguars' uniforms.

Would've been interesting to see how well the creamsicle colors would've paired with this uniform.

 

The Bucs uniforms aren't bad, it's just that being in the same division as the Falcons it would help them better if they're unis were more distinguished compared to the Falcons.

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

If I have time later on in the series, I'll do a creamsicle version of this Bucs set.

Tried the stylized horns look for the Rams. I think the simplicity of that concept is what makes it pop, and the extra detail kinda bogs it down.

Stripes and numbers on the Bucs unis would use the same material as the currents.

 

Next up, the New York Jets!

Now that the Sam Darnold Era has officially begun, the Jets need a bold new look to complement the revitalized franchise.

Since the Jets are due for new uniforms next year, this concept doubles as a prediction.

I'm going for a combination of eras here. Kelly Green makes its long-anticipated return, along with a revamped version of their sleek 80's & 90's logo.

 

The logo is reinforced on the sleeves, similar to oldschoolvikings' Jets concept. The form of the jet happens to cradle the swoosh quite nicely, so I could totally see Nike going in this direction.

The helmet is inspired by their color rush look, complete with a metallic helmet decal.

A distinct yet traditional custom block font takes cues from the logo.

C+C is appreciated!

Realized the second I posted it. I was trying to ride the wave of Darnold hype from last night, then I looked at the title of the post...

Thanks for the feedback.

Next up, the New York Giants.

This is essentially a modernization of their 1971 uniforms. Striping consistency is restored, with the exception of the home jersey, which remains stripeless.

Grey pants would be worn the majority of the time with this set. White pants could be substituted a few times per year.

The primary logo depicts an interlocking N-Y with a G and the Empire State Building as a backdrop. I figured since 'Giants' probably refers to their skyscrapers, they should have some kind of reference to it in their logo. The red G with a blue border is also consistent with the striping.

A simpler version of the logo appears on the helmet. For some reason, anything but a plain white logo looks weird on their helmet.

C+C is appreciated!

Thats insane. I been playing my giants franchise on Madden 19, and seriously have been doing that exact combo basically with the color rush tops, GREAT WORK!!!

First, an update to the Ravens' helmet. Purple replaces gray, giving it a more subtle look.

Next up, the Indianapolis Colts!

I kept it relatively conservative for a team that hasn't made a significant change to their identity since the 50's.

I modernized the horseshoe and turned it on its side, making a C. Hardly an original idea, but it makes too much sense to pass up.

Helmet numbers are moved from the back to inside the logo, making room for a double stripe.

Little holes are added to all striping to match the horseshoe logo, giving an otherwise conservative look a little more personality.

I added a classic number font with serifs, taking cues from the logo.

C+C is appreciated!

This is the best Jets concept I've seen on this board. Modern while still paying respects to the past. Nice Job.

 

HOWEVER, I think you should extend the Jet striping, as on the sleeves, to the pants and helmet. For example, instead of having to straight lines as a helmet stripe, keep the back the same but have two jets reflect in the front and at the bottom of the pants.

 

Colts is perfect too. I'd probably make the helmet logo bigger.

Next up, the Seattle Seahawks!

Going for a tasteful modern look here. I wanted to keep the essence of the team's identity, i.e. custom fonts, creative striping, emphasis on grey, but take it in a different direction.

The logo is a simplification of their current logo, designed to match the jersey striping.

The custom number font takes cues from traditional Haida art. I like that their 2012 rebrand attempted to incorporate some traditional Pacific Northwest imagery into the sleeve striping, but the addition of volt negated most of that effect. Volt is out, replaced by the teal of the Seattle flag. I've also prepared a version that uses an Emerald green that fits the city as well.

C+C appreciated!

Whether you're finding them or creating them, you're doing an amazing job with your fonts. Hat tipped for that.

 

TB's font improves the look greatly, and your jersey set looks good, but I agree with @jus2damcrazey219. I also think the away could use some more red. I'd kinda like to see the skull logo replace the flag on the helmets!

 

The Jets look solid. I've always felt that logo didn't look very plane-like, but you've used it well.

 

Great idea with the Colts' holed stripes and helmet number! I'd like to see holes and/or Rangers-style points on the numbers, to spice that up a tad.

 

Your updates to my hometown Seahawks' jerseys are awesome, especially in Kelly. What a great blend of modern and retro, with a great font to top it off!

The logo is close, but if you're going for the local Indigenous style, it's all a bit too rounded. Maybe make the eye pointy on both sides, and make the beak's green section more defined.

 

An outstanding series! Really great work!

that logo looks somewhat like Florida Gulf Coast's logo, but still great concept!

Thanks! I created the majority of the fonts. Colts and Giants are standard blocks. I used 'Avenged for Yourself' for the Ravens, adjusting a few of the numbers. Lions are based off the font Featured Item, but I made a lot of changes.

Seahawks look great. I prefer the green version but think the teal would make a great third set.

Thanks! That's what I had initially, but I wanted to see what a full set in each color would look like so I had to post them both. I'll post the original too.

I gotta say, I don't really see it. It is a little more simplified, I guess.

Next up, the red-hot Kansas City Chiefs!

Minor changes here for a franchise that has looked practically the same for its entire existence.

My biggest focus here is a much-needed update to the arrowhead logo. No more black, so it's consistent with the rest of the set. The "K" in "KC" doubles as the binding that holds the arrowhead to the shaft.

I also designed a new block number font to inject some modern elements into a classic set. 

Striping consistency across the board.

C+C is appreciated!

Chiefs are great, and I'm actually digging the Seahawks in blue-and-teal more than the blue-and-green combo. Glad you kept it as an alt.

These are marvelous, but feedback:

 

----------

BENGALS

 

Good:

  • love the numeral fonts
  • love the logo
  • love the script

Meh:

  • I'd just go with a white and striped helmet with traces or orange or an orange facemask
  • the script wordmark needs a little bit more "finishing," but it's almost there

----------

 

VIKINGS

 

Good:

  • logo is fantastic
  • wordmark hits the mark

Meh:

  • I feel the darkening of the purple is a negative, but that's my two cents

----------

 

RAVENS


Good:

  • Font choice is solid
  • the BR interlocking logo is close to being great

Meh:

  • I felt personally the design elements were way too modern (gradients, no, no)
  • design overall felt too gloomy (which makes sense, but still)

----------

 

The Giants, Jets, Bucs, and Lions are essentially pristine.  I wouldn't change anything.  Only thing I didn't like about the Chiefs logo is the yellow bottom of the arrowhead.
