    Yes, it's my concept I made back in November. Thanks for the compliment. If you want to check out the concept, click here. You can see the progression of the design and also the inspiration. Nothing stands out to me, and based on the E I'd wager that it's a custom font. I originally thought that the two stripes could be part of the Adidas stripes, but I can't say that with confidence now since they seem to stand on their own (that and they wouldn't show kits this early in the process). Since that seems to be the case, I'd say that it would be a part of the identity. That's what I was thinking. No idea on the font, and I do agree that somehow those stripes are significant. They could mean stripes literally in the crest, or stripes on the kit. Who knows. Exciting time to be a soccer fan in Atlanta! The font is custom. I didnt create the original bones or aesthetic of the font, but I did the final comb-though to get all the letterforms and typographic details just right. It's not very flashy. It's a dignified style with what I see as cues from old industrial letterheads and hand painted building signage, but cleaned and stripped of the vintage decoration in favor of crisper lines and a curvilinear structure thats smoother and more geometric. I really like it.

    That's a very self-righteous way of looking at things. Actually I am a wine enthusiast and I've found bottles of wine in the $18 range that taste far superiour to $200+ bottles. Again, good taste is absolutlely nothing more than a personal opinion based on either your own personal expericences or by what your curtural surroundings have taught you. I don't see how it's a self-righteous point of view to understand that there are some areas of life where you have gained experience, knowledge, and passion that leads you to having a better understanding of it and creating an informed opinion that (should) hold more weight than average; and other areas where you have less experience and can simply gravitate towards what you like. That's not saying you should enjoy those areas any less, but what I am suggesting is that perhaps you shouldn't hold your own opinion in those areas as the pinnacle, end-all-be-all of opinions. I chose to use wine specifically for that reason (your screen name led me to it). I don't doubt that you have tasted expensive wines that have tasted worse than a cheaper, inexpensive wine... In fact, I had hoped that was the case. Your knowledge and experience of sampling a variety of wines has led you to create that opinion of good taste and that is the very point I'm trying to make. If we were in the wine cellar and I pulled out this $200 bottle of wine and I asked for your opinion of it and you replied: "No, that's not very good... try this $100 bottle instead, it's much more dense and has a nice acidity," I would value your opinion higher than my own as a novice of wine tasting. Does that mean that I'm personally going to like the $100 bottle you recommended more than $200 bottle? Not necessarily... but the point is that your experience with wine has perhaps developed a sense of Good Taste that I haven't gained yet in my naivety. This point of view doesn't eliminate personal preference from the equation, but enhances it. If we were both wine aficionados, we could have a lively debate about why I liked or didn't like the wine you chose and would be able to competently illustrate our reasoning for it according to our own experiences of how a red wine should taste. But if I've had two glasses of wine in my entire life to that point, then perhaps my preference on what good wine is shouldn't hold that much weight to you or (if I'm smart) myself if I declare I prefer one wine because it has a better-designed label. [TL;DR] Again, it's about placing value on opinions. The new-Brown-uniform curmudgeons on this forum may be in the minority compared to the majority of Browns fans, but I place more value on the opinions of the people here than I do with the opinions on the Browns' Facebook page because I know these people have a passion for uniform design and are gaining expertise and taste in judging uniforms (though some have made more progress in that journey than others... ha, I kid). Does this mean that I'll always agree with every consensus opinion on the board? Certainly not! Go see the NHL thread for examples of that (I like the Coyotes new jerseys and hate their current logo... that's definitely a minority opinion here). But even for when we disagree because of personal preference, we can draw our arguments from experience and knowledge instead of solely relying on our personal tastes; there's a different value between the opinions of "I like the new Browns uniform because it embraces the historical tradition of the Browns and yet ushers in a new era. The new shade of orange is an upgrade with the helmet finish, and the new font better represents the direction of Cleveland as a city," compared to "Wow, that's hot!!!1! We look FLY!" (I apologize for the diatribe. I wrote a philosophy paper in college on the subject, so I'm fairly sold on this idea of objective Good Taste)

    The Ducks? You mean that monogram that represents a stylized D by way of a distinct duck feature without being obvious about the name? That's one of the better logos in the entire league.

    I am working on this thread that might appeal to fantasy football players. It is simply a / funny / punny / or /sarcastic/ way of developing a team name and logo for your fantasy team. I feel that most fantasy players really enjoy naming their team so I will be taking requests from anyone who would like their team concept in a wordmark and helmet format to use as an avatar/profile pic in their fantasy league. I am familiar with how ESPN fantasy leagues allow team owners to upload graphics from the web and think that they are best suited for this type of graphic representation. You may know of others so please contribute that information to this thread. I want this concept to be based off of Current or former NFL Teams. I will not do anything vulgar that compromises the integrity of SportsLogos.net so keep it clean. I purposely leave city names off of the wordmarks so that it will hopefully have a broader appeal. Fantasy or fictitious city names are doable. Here is my first attempt with an NFL team that has had much controversy in the past month.

    Hi guys -- longtime lurker, first time poster. This idea came to me a few years ago after being inspired by a couple of really great concepts (Raysox's US Soccer 2030 and Patrick Cummings' America League) and the expansive nature of global football (thanks to all of the FIFA games). As the beautiful game began to grow throughout the world, the powers that be wanted to capture the pageantry and glory of the World Cup and apply it to the club level. Thus the idea for the United Continental Football Association was born. The concept was simply to create a worldwide league based on the 5 major continents: North America, South America, Africa, Europe, and Asia-Oceania (Asia + Australia). Each league would have a Championship tier of 20 teams and could fill out lower tiers as they pleased -- but a city was only allowed one team. Each continent would then send its champions to play for the World Continental Cup (WCC) at the end of the year to crown a World champion. After a few rounds of trial and error, the leagues were finalized as follows: North America North American Championship League (20 teams - 4 WCC births - 3 relegation teams) North American B League (24 teams - 3 promotion teams - 3 relegation teams) North American C League (24 teams - 3 promotion teams - 3 relegation teams) North American D League (24 teams - 3 promotion teams - 3 relegation teams) South America South American Championship League (20 teams - 3 WCC births - 2 relegation teams) South American B League (12 teams - 2 promotion teams) Africa African Championship League (20 teams - 3 WCC births - 2 relegation teams) African B League (12 teams - 2 promotion teams) Europe European Championship League (20 teams - 3 WCC births - 3 relegation teams) European B League (20 teams - 3 promotion teams - 3 relegation teams) European C League (20 teams - 3 promotion teams) Asia-Oceania Asia-Oceania Championship League (20 teams - 3 WCC births - 3 relegation teams) Asia-Oceania B League (20 teams - 3 promotion teams) 10 seasons were played and met with unquestioned success and the UCFL was officially here to stay. I have results for all 10 seasons and plan on posting some fun stuff around the WCC and regional tournaments, but for now, this thread will focus only on the teams in the Championship Leagues going into Season 11. (Feel free to shoot me a note if you are interested in the league tables and process for simulating the leagues) I am only focusing on the North American Championship League at the moment but my goal is to eventually get to the entire world. Here is a preview of the Championship Leagues -- the teams I will be posting can be found in the far left column (the rest are just the city names): Just so you all know, the cities and structure are set in stone and the teams in the championship leagues are based off of 10 seasons of simulation -- not by personal choice or bias. Hope you all enjoy this series and looking forward to your C&C/feedback.

    Good questions. For these concepts, I am only doing short sleeve jerseys but traditionally in soccer, the players have the option to wear either a short sleeve or long sleeve (or a long sleeve compression shirt under a short sleeve which is probably more common than a long sleeve). Most kits just extend the the sleeve all the way down so the designs don't really change. Here is an example:

    Actually, I'd like to see the Ravens have two purples stripes over the length of the helmet instead of the tapered stripes. They'd be traditional stripes with a bit more modern flair. It'd be like the Jets stripes but on a black helmet.

    "Good taste" is in the eye of the beholder. What you may think is good taste may be in fact very poor taste to others. So in all reality, "good taste" is nothing more than a personal opinion. Actually, I'd argue Good Taste is objective, it's just simply varies by the individual the ability to discern it. Under your mode of thinking, the good taste of a wine enthusiast who has traveled the globe for 40 years sampling wines from different countries holds the same amount of weight as the preferences of a high school girl sneaking a bottle from her parent's wine rack with her friends. Or that my own ability to determine what is good rap music is at the same level as Kendrick Lamar's opinion of good rap. Saying everyone's opinion of Good Taste is equal in all areas of life and it all comes down to personal preference is a nice sentiment, but deep down, you know that isn't true.

    Consensus on the Avalanche is hardly unanimous but the majority of people on these boards think the original jerseys should come back in some capacity. While some may prefer the original, "redder" shade of burgundy and others the current, the uniforms are generally regarded as modern classics that were ruined during the 'Edge' changeover. I've also noticed quite a bit of love for the burgundy alts with the diagonal text, with some going so far as to advocate them being the primary homes. Albeit with the logo replacing the diagonal text. As for my opinion, I think there was one instance where they improved their uniforms... When the crest increased in size and was tilted slightly counterclockwise for the 1996/97 season. The original shade of burgundy made a huge difference.

    ..... Lifeless? I like these throwbacks, but if anything, the throwbacks are more "lifeless" than their current identity. Lifeless is a pretty good description of the current Dolphins uniform. From the lack of orange, to the bland corporate-style logo, to the brighter aqua (which in theory should have been nice, but in practice just looks faded and washed out) it does look like someone systematically took the old uniform and drained the life out of them. Funny, that's actually what I like about them (except for the lack of orange). The aqua actually looks aqua now instead of teal and the blandness of the logo has never bothered me to begin with.

    According to NHLUniforms: Detroit has never worn a lace-up collar on their home/away jerseys. I wouldn't expect them to change just for change sake. Chicago hasn't worn a lace up collar on their home/away jerseys since 1965, but would they change? Probably not. As great as those two uniform sets already are, I think laces would make them both even better, but don't do it just for the sake of changing

    i agree with the direction of making small changes, but i wouldn't eliminate the 1 thing they have that makes them unique: the jersey yoke. the biggest issue with the identity is there is no unity between all the elements in it - and there are just too many things going on with the uniform. there is almost every shape you could come up with used on the uni. - Greek inspired type and logo - tapered helmet stripe - traditional pants stripe - use of red feels out of place; not consistant with all of this, the uniform still feels stale. i think a simplifying the shapes and building things that have more unity would be a huge improvement. i would also drop the red and introduce a new color, maybe silver for the helmet, or copper. I feel like this may be the fourth or fifth time I've done this (!), but years ago I did take a stab at trying to resolve those problems (SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT)... Not mentioned previously, but it'd also fall right in line with the (currently far more) successful Predators' identity, not to mention Nashville's civic flag colors as well. (Guess that was me trying to bring a little "Pittsburghness" to the Music City.... )

    And you know that how?Polls, radio shows ect. Ect. I can back him up on this one. The reactions to the new uniforms have been overwhelmingly positive among Browns fans. Seems that both the old school fans and the younger generation both are happy with the change. The only negative reaction was to the "new" logo. Most wanted to see an actual logo, and not an illustration of a piece of equipment. Co-signed. I work with a couple guys who constantly talk to "the old Browns" and "the way things used to be" and bla bla bla that same stuff I hear every day in this City. They like the uniforms. They didn't think the Browns needed a change, but they liked the update. One of the guys 50+ even said the wordmark on the pants was the best in the NFL. So, just like anything in life... take it for what its worth. I don't doubt that many, and probably even most, Browns fans have convinced themselves to like this uniform. Just the fact that your favorite team is updating, is being talked about, is seemingly moving forward at least in one regard... it's exciting. Plus, it's your team. It's the same way that the average fan grades their team's draft... optimism is always the order of the day for a fan. I recently went back to look at my first posts on this site, back in '06 when the Vikings went to their reebokian look. It's right there in black and white... I wholeheartedly approved. I looked at the images of Brad Johnson wearing that '06 uniform, came onto this site, and wrote the word "upgrade". And I believed it. But it wasn't long until the bloom started to fade, the excitement of the internet discussions disappeared, and I was left just staring at that uniform. For years. Take that poll again next year... and again the year after that. Even the homer opinion is going to change fairly soon... I have no doubt. That seems like wishful thinking on your behalf. You may be right, but I'll believe it when I see it. You have to at least take into consideration that a good amount of fans may actually like the new look and may possibly still like it in the future. Well, no, I don't. That was the whole point of my comment. I understand that a good amount of Browns fans are currently excited about the idea that their team has new uniforms. And that excitement has, for now, overridden objectivity. For most of them, it'll pass.

    I love the color scheme. Very 70s San Diego Chargers. But I think you made a mistake on the away jersey. It looks like the stripes aren't the same on the front and back of the sleeves. I vote for the one with the gold. Additionally, I think you should change the sock stripes on the away to match the home. Having that little bit of gold to break up the two-tone blue adds a lot.

Calgary Rams Calgary, AB I went with a much simpler, more classic look here. The colors are red and soft gold. The swooping strokes on some of the letterforms are meant to evoke the look of horns. The cap logo is a simple C, and the road uniforms' base color isn't gray; it has a slight gold tint. The stand-alone ram's head logo is the sleeve patch. Here's a closer look at the wordmarks.
