    I like the concepts when they are pertinent to the discussion as this one was. Helps the conversation and much easier than trying to explain it.

    I don’t want much from Jacksonville. Literally just pants stripes. That’s all.

    Hey guys. I figured I'd post a couple of minor updates as I work on the final presentation. First, I created a stronger wordmark for KC, based off the custom number font. I also made the logo a little bolder. I applied the unique sleeve striping I built the Dolphins to the socks (they had the triple stripe before). Now all horizontal striping matches, and all vertical striping matches. Finally, here's a creamsicle version of my Bucs concept. Just for fun!

    So I rolled along and made a final version of everything. I cleaned up the logos and scripts from pages 4 and 5. I ended up going with font A from page 4. I don’t usually like italic numbers or completely round fonts, and font B was both of those things, so as much as I tried to like it to get some more blue on the jerseys, I just couldn’t get myself to like the font. So I went with the font based of the primary logo. Hats: Two hats, but both are similar. Both have black crowns with the fish-only logo, but one has a blue bill and button, the other swaps in pink. Jerseys: A whopping 5 jerseys, in white, gray, blue, pink, and black. The white and pink jerseys have the Marlins script, the gray and black jerseys have the Miami script, and the blue jersey has Miami, swapping pink and blue for better contrast. On the sleeves, the jerseys have a striping pattern that replicates the scripts, going thin black-thick blue-thin black-medium pink-thin black, with blue and pink swapped on the blue jersey. Pants: Three pairs, white, gray, and blue. All pairs have striping down the side matching the jerseys and belts are colored to match the socks, which come in blue, pink, and black. Rules: Ah yes, rules for the uniforms. The bill of the caps should match the socks/undershirts unless black socks are being worn (because there isn't a solid black cap). While black socks and undershirts are an option, they should be avoided. Ideally, blue would be the most common choice, with pink a close second, and black being worn only when necessary, such as with the blue pants or black jerseys. All three colored jerseys can be worn at home with white pants, and the blue and black jerseys can be worn on the road, with blue and gray pants, respectively. Pink jerseys stay at home. This is the first time I've done this with baseball, normally I stick to football concepts, so I kinda improvised the presentation as I went along. Hopefully it isn't too bad to even look at. Here's the final product: Personally, I like how the neon "light bulbs" pop off the black backgrounds, but if all I wanted was my opinion, I wouldn't be posting them here. What do you guys think? Compared to the real Marlins redesign, upgrade, downgrade, flat? Let me know!

    I'll never understand why some people on this forum flip out about the usage of black in these uniforms. They never wore black jerseys. Never wore black pants. Never wore black socks. Yet the minor amount out black used with these in relation to the green and white has been vilified and tagged BFBS *sighs and shakes head*

    Can the stupid circlejerk about emojis and everything end? It's so tired at this point and not really indicative of anything, that's just how a lot of younger people talk. Seriously, I've seen everything from the Giant's super simple throwbacks to the Seahawks all neon green color rush being described with the exact same terminology. What else do you expect them to say? Besides, uniforms should be allowed to have some attitude and make players excited. Of course, there's a delicate balance there to avoid going overboard, but still.

    Because amateur graphic designers don’t get a brief from the team. They don’t have to answer to an art director, let alone a creative director who may be completely removed from the project. They don’t have to work with a separate uniform design team. They don’t have to compete with other designers on their own team who are also trying to get their work on the field. They don’t have to build a presentation deck explaining their thought process (props to those who do, of course). They don’t have to present their work to league marketing officials or game operations staff. They don’t have to present their work to the team’s marketing executives, merchandising team, equipment manager, front office executives, presidents, CEOs, or owners. They don’t have to revise their work based on the opinions of any of those dozens of people previously mentioned. They don’t have to revise their work again. Or again. Or again. They don’t have to design within any sort of cost or margin constraint. They don’t have to spec measurements, colors, materials, or embellishments, nor do they have to have any of those things individually developed and cost-quoted for manufacturing. They don’t have to go through the process of physically sampling the product and revising it based on their own evaluation or that of any of those dozens of people previously mentioned. They don’t have to rely on a catalog with a TBD image and a team of salespeople to convince retailers to buy hundreds or even thousands of their bread-and-butter item sight unseen. They don’t have to do it for 8-12 teams and/or events every season (not to mention 60+ uniforms in a switchover year). They don’t have to stay motivated after they work for weeks or months on a project and the team responds with, “No, thanks!” They don’t have to grapple with the fact that 95% of the work they do is essentially a waste and wonder where their life and career went after a few decades of grinding... I’d say that covers the main reasons.

    Perhaps after agreeing to sign with the Jets, Anthony Barr was told what the new uniforms were going to look like and he was like "Nope. I'm out," and went back to the Vikings. Makes sense right?

    I’m sick of that being the only shot of the silver pants. So I’ve screencapped this from the Colts 1998 highlights reel for future use.

    Hey guys, After seeing the Mint Julip hats back on the last page, I just wanted to take this time to give a quick shout out to the Montgomery Biscuits. The Biscuits were so ahead of the curve on the anthropomorphic local food item logo. The logo below is from 2004. Now? The shark has been jumped over and back again. The horse has been mercilessly beaten into the ground. Montgomery Biscuits, I'm sorry that so many teams are infringing on your territory. I'm sorry now that you may unfairly get lumped in with the other unoriginal food logos. Your logo was great and clever. It made me laugh. It still does. Stay strong.

    Am I the only one who wants the Panthers to not remove Silver on this Board? I would rather they Minimize the Use of White outside of the Away Jersey.

    Or maybe it looks good because that's What it's supposed to look like. Lakers in yellow(goldish) at home vs the rockets in a colored uniform.

    I’m bummed the thunder didn’t chose sonic, it’s a well known Oklahoma based brand, and would lead to so many SuperSonics jokes.

    are the thunder the rare team where every alternate they have right now is a better uniform than their regular association and icon looks? if they could inject some life into the white uni i would say this is the best they've ever looked.

    Now that everyone agrees the Browns are the best football team ever assembled, I think it's high time they burned their embarrassment of a uniform and went back to what the Browns are supposed to be - clean, classic, and simple. As such, here's a uni-swap with Odell Beckham, Jr. into a concept Browns uniform that heavily features the triple stripe made by the helmet shell and helmet stripe. And not much else. As it should be.

    To me, none of these uniforms you posted are really patriotic. They're about as well-intentioned as Pinktober was.

    I am starting "another" MLB thread, but the catch here is the concepts are modeled after the college baseball nike designs. This means a ton of options, fauxbacks, and non-traditional designs. The first team is the Houston Astros, a team many college programs model uniforms after. I took a page out of the NCAA's book and brought back the rainbow guts with a modern twist. Additionally, the more traditional options have added a shooting star above the team names. C&C are appreciated, but any edits will be about 2 months out.

    Messing (even more) with an iconic helmet to accommodate that uniform? No thanks.

    Or, you know, the Jets requesting new “hip with the kids” uniforms, and working with Nike throughout the design process to make sure they get what they want. I don’t see this with any other manufacturer. So, why is every single thing Nike does seen as them forcing their designs on helpless teams, but if any other maker is involved it’s correctly seen as the two working together?

    Okay, I think I got something to show y'all. At the moment I only have football and I know my M.O. for this thread has been four sports but I almost want to keep this one just for football due to the importance of the game in real life, but I'll see what the court of public opinion thinks. No matter who your team is throughout the regular season, we always find ourselves drawn to the TV the weekend after Championship Weekend to watch the Army-Navy game. Nike and Under Armour have done fantastic jobs in the past on the game uniforms and I can only hope to have a sliver of that same success. I'm not gonna do a whole lot of talking on these, only enough to say that my inspiration was "tools" of World War II. Instruments of War sounded so dark. My overarching idea was important devices and such that helped the US military in World War II. For Army that was the M4 Sherman Tank. For Navy it was the USS Enterprise. Let me know what you guys think and if I should extend it to the rest of the sports!

    As we've learned in the past, social media and promotional teams doing something doesn't necessarily reflect on actual uniform choices. I'm reminded of the below meme (which 100% reflects me as well lol)

    I really love Cleveland's C logo. Distinct, historically significant, and an all-around sharp look. It comes at a perfect time to celebrate their first World Series championship 100 years ago, and to carry on a winning tradition moving forward.

    Unpopular Opinion: This is the best jersey the Flames have ever worn. The home red during this period had too much black, but a set built around this sweater would be outstanding.

    Potentially unpopular opinion: The Browns’ Color Rush uniform isn’t good, it’s just better than the primaries. The orange-on-brown doesn’t work and in gameplay the numbers don’t have nearly enough contrast.

    Don’t like this change. If you're a pinstripe team, you should always be wearing pinstripes. Having two pairs of pants, the mix-and-match, it dilutes the team’s identity. At least with pinstripe pants there was some continuity between the regular uniforms and the softball tops.

    You know this has been going on for almost as long as goaltenders have been wearing masks? A quarterback doesn't wear equipment that separates him from his teammates and in football a player wearing a different article of clothing would actually be a detriment, especially for offensive players where you don't want to make it any easier for the defense to key in on a specific player. In baseball several catchers have actually taken to decorating their hockey style masks. Though nobody's really gone to the lengths of hockey goaltenders, it has happened. They're also wearing decorated equipment, but when they're at the plate and look like everyone else they wear the standard equipment. Joe Maurer didn't wear his custom helmet when he wasn't in his catcher's gear. All of the skaters who need to appear uniform do wear the same helmet while the goaltender is the only player on the team wearing large pads, a glove, and a mask and stationed in his one spot on the ice so he's naturally going to appear different from his teammates. I see no reason why his headgear needs to match the rest of his team's when so much else about his equipment and the position is so visually and technically different than the sport his teammates play around him. I like Kinkaid's mask design. I hope he actually gets to wear it in a game. I'm pretty sure he's not the first guy to use Stinger on a mask since the team stopped using that logo full-time, but I'll have to check.

    The red undershirts always looked best for the Indians; it looked great in the 90s...then changed in the 2000s I think... and then went they went back to them a few years ago.

    As a Broncos fan, I love Josh Allen. One of my neighbors last year was a Wyoming fan and we both hoped Denver would draft him. The Bills are actually going to be coming up pretty soon, so keep your eye out for that. But for now we've got the.... Los Angeles Rams Colors and Logo: I went against the grain here, not reverting to royal blue and athletic gold. Instead, I chose to use navy blue paired with athletic gold. I can't really tell you why, because I like the throwback color scheme, but this is just what I'd prefer to see the Rams go with. Sometimes you can't really explain why you think something looks good, it just clicks in your brain. For me, this is one of those times. As for the logo, I kept the current ram head mostly intact, dropping some (what I feel are) unnecessary details and recoloring it. Helmet: Contrary to the impression I may give some people, I'm not a complete idiot. Untouched. Jerseys: Three jerseys, athletic gold, navy blue, and white. For the primary home jersey, I chose to use athletic gold. LA is pretty hot early in the season, which could encourage the team to wear a lighter color at home. Rather than have them choose white for the majority of the season, why not make the home jersey a light color in yellow? I don't know how many people believe that wearing a dark color actually impacts how a team plays in the heat, but teams seem to think it's an issue, so I did what had to be done to ensure that we get to see the home team in colored jerseys 8 games a year. And I just wanted a team with a yellow home jersey. But that first thing too. As for the actual design of the jerseys, I modeled it off the. 2000's set. The sleeves get too crowded to have a full horn, at least in my opinion. On the topic of crowding, I also decided not to keep the sleeve logo, instead moving the TV numbers there. In my opinion, the shoulder hoop doesn't allow both to work, so I kept the one required by NFL rules. Additionally, all unnecessary white was dropped. That means the only white is the white jersey, everything else is just blue and gold. Pants: Same colors as the jerseys. One solid stripe of the opposite color on the colored pants, the white pants have a gold stripe outlined in blue. Combinations: The white jersey has the most freedom. It can be worn with any pair of pants. The gold jerseys have slightly less, with the all-gold combo being the only one off limits. The navy jerseys are heavily restricted, only having the gold pants as an option. That's kinda it, I guess. Thoughts?

    Sorry, I can’t agree with any of this. As someone who has been a goalie? You very much ARE out there on an island. It’s a very lonely position, and it attracts a unique sort of person. I don’t wanna say “loner” but kind of? Hell, even most locker rooms will separate goalie benches from everyone else. Offensive players work as a three-man operation and defensive players work as tandem. You though? You’re on your own. You’re often credited with the victory or you’re the reason you lost. It’s a position of self-imposed isolation. Hockey is a team game but the goalie is always...a bit apart. They’ve got different drills in practice, play separately, they are somewhat separated in the locker room, and the only other teammate they have any sense of solidarity with in terms of going through the same stuff? They do the same thing and they don’t even get to play together. If one guy’s out? The other guy’s on the bench. And if they’re on the bench? They’re separated from the rest of the team, to the side, rarely if ever taking part in bench banter. And that’s why you see goalie masks designed like they are. Isolation is part of the culture of being a goalie and that leads to an individualistic streak that is, perhaps paradoxically, an essential part of the team game. So because of that, and not “just because other people do it,” you’ll never get rid of customized masks. They’re an engrained part of goaltender culture and a sign of individualism in a position that quite frankly earns it. NOW If you want to criticize the recent-ish trend of moving away from clear and cool bold designs in favour of airbrushed designs that look dorky? Then that’s a conversation worth having. That boils down to aesthetic preference, however. If your solution to deal with the air brushed fad is “no more custom masks” then I’m afraid you’ve both overreacted and fundamentally misjudged the position of goaltender and the people to opt to play it.
