    Deadspin is having a photoshop contest of sorts. This cracked me up.

    Well, I graduated H.S. in 1980 and got my bachelor's degree in 1985, so of course we took notes by using burnt sticks on parchment paper. While reading sea scrolls by candlelight.

    Hi everyone, I decided to do a total rebrand of the Detroit Lions as if "bubbles" and the current branding never existed. I did it more for fun and as a challenge to myself to come up with a full branding system. I warn those who are Lions fans that this doesn't keep much of what is currently in the system or on the uniforms. It definitely has a less traditional feel to it. I mean no disrespect to the current branding or the traditions from which it came from. That being said, let's go into the project. I based my logo concept off of a 70's profile Detroit Lions Logo that I found on this very site, and made an updated version of it. I thought the profile head would look great for the helmets and be able to be used in many different applications. I then thought to do a front view to be able to be used on the uniforms, and additional logos can help merchandising. I based the typography on a black letter style since the tigers use blackletterI then did the unthinkable and darkened the Lions blue and added a surprise color into the uniforms. I felt that the orange could symbolize fire: the fires of industry found in Detroit, the rebirth of a team from the ashes etc. I also thought the new color could help be a driver for new merchandise lines. For the Uniforms I included watermarks on the shoulderpads of tire patterns representing the motor city, and a grid of the city on the silver uniform.I then decided to extend the series to include a stationary system for their corporate offices. I hope yall like them, and I'm open to your feedback. Thanks, enjoy Profile primary Profile full body front facing logo Lions script Lions Helmet Uniform front Uniform front with Lion patch Uniform back Full Uniform full uniform silver Lions Stationary Sorry forgot to say I used templates from Frasier Davidson for the helmet and uniform shot

    Honestly, I feel that a brown and green color combo would be more suited to a Northwestern team, but that's just me. Maybe a red or orange would work instead. Apart from cacti, green wouldn't really scream "desert!" to me. But great work on the sets! I like the addition of powder blue to the set, as I think it'll make it seem more "cold" or something referring to the Rockies. Problem is, I feel the purple just doesn't stand out the same way as it did with the black. As you can see, it's just the colors that I don't necessarily agree with. Other than that, it's amazing! PS: I see you saved the Giants for last. Haha...

    Does it or does that fall on the shoulders of GM, who was his GM during his coaching tenure and was fired by Arizona the same day or does it even fall on the man who replaced Graves, Steve Keim? Before becoming GM last January, Keim held the following positions with the team: VP of of Player Personnel (May 2012-January 2013); Director, Player Personnel (May 2008-May 2012) and Director of College Scouting (June 2006-May 2008). Were those who were also in the room with the HC as bad or worse at their job? Honestly, the Vikings are going to have the same issue since GM Rick Speilman, who did not have the title of GM due to the team not naming one, was in the room to draft Ponder as he was in charge of scouting, free agency and draft preparations prior to becoming GM.

    Bamboo wouldn't flex.No? Nice! Well that's also like 30 feet long. Not sure if you're being serious or funny, but there's plenty of bats made out of bamboo - or like mine, which has a bamboo handle (since the bamboo is harder to break) and maple barrel. Also, bamboo floors are pretty hard! Well, it was just a facetious remark at the weird rendering if the bat. I just figured bamboo stalks were flexible. Someone should save this and use it in a lesson plan on how ridiculous, conversation derailing arguments happen on the internet: "That's bent like bamboo" "bamboo doesn't bend!" "I'll PROVE to you bamboo bends" "Well maybe THAT bamboo bends but MY bamboo doesn't bend!" Anyway that mascot is genric and boring -- they should have used something more unique like Ivy, a stick of gum, or idk .. something else ..... a cub for the Cubs is too obvious

    If you want I will consider hosting court database on the Sports E-Cyclopedia once you finished all 30 teams.

    I think you did great! People make fun of it but I think that the creamsicle uniforms are pretty good. Good job Evan, and congrats.

    And it's probably the reason why they won't do it --- or the NFL won't allow them to not wear white. They will probably get special monochrome volt unis for the SB if they win on Sunday because nike owns the nfl now.

    The Cincinnati Reds cap logo would look good on a football helmet, especially in orange on navy helmet. But for real -- I think some NHL logos would transfer well to football -- Predators, Sharks, Coyotes to name a few. The Colts would make for a cool baseball cap or chest logo Every time I comment on a thread like that and go to SL.net to just scan over the Big 4 I realize more and more how bad the NBA's logos are.

    No, that's terrible. Aside from it sucking that they're apparently stripping down their identity by putting the cap logo on jerseys, don't make the same mistake the Giants just made. Pick piping or stripes. Not both. It looks like like a manufacturer defect jersey you'd find cheaply at TJ Maxx.

    Or better yet, just have the teams wear gray sweatpants and colored t-shirts with a local State Farm agent's name on the back to make the matchup even more amateurish.

    So at the end, it showed me big photo of a Jags helmet. Is it because I picked it dead last? Or do you just show everyone the jags?

    I love Oakland's whole set. Among the top 5 in the league overall in my opinion. The colors, the cleanliness of everything, the way the scripts and colors pop.

    I figure most here might have an idea they'd drawn on paper first, then if they have a scanner, scan and then trace...there are a couple cats posting hand-drawn concepts, however. In short, yeah, hand-drawn's acceptable, you might even get a few oohs and aahs.

    People get over yourselves. It's a mascot for a team named the Cubs that will visit sick kids in the hospital.

    I just revealed where the next five teams will be. You get to find them. When you do you'll find a clue with them as to how to reveal them to every one else. And as a prize (because certain people having been begging for this) you may select the the 6th team. It must be international however, must be on the list, and cannot be in the Euro-Central Division. As for the 5, if you other guys wanna throw team name ideas at me nothing is set in stone. You may inspire me as a consolation prize. Happy Hunting!

    Sorry I don't get the uproar at all. Its a mascot, they are for kids. Its a fine cartoon bear. He's no worse than any number of current MLB mascots: Or some of the minor league ones: Pretty much par for the course. I do find it humorous that everything that was the Cubs game experience (no ads, no replays, largest outdoor bar) is going by the wayside with the Rickets. Perhaps that other Cubs tradition will be gone as well...

    It's just a shame that a player whose name means "green head" only played for the Jets in the white helmet era.
