  1. So I took some of the comments and re-worked a little. With the helmet I switched the facemask to white and added a white stroke around the logo. Also, I added a helmet stripe to match the pants. I wanted a wide base of the stripe to give this the "modern classic" feel I've been going for. All in all I'm torn on the changes. I liked the simplicity of the stripeless helmet and I thought the blue facemask gave the set good color balance. I do agree with @jus2damcrazey219 that a blue facemask might look a little more mountain-west conference than NFL but I felt like black through off the look. White seems pretty slick. Also added white pants while trying to keep the striping consistent. I'm anxious to hear feedback on how I handled the stripe. I used Keuchly's name and # to show what a 2 digit non teen number looks. I've played around with a set of blue pants too but I'm not sure about those yet. As a note the blue is more consistent picture to picture and more in line with what the Panthers actually use. I was having issues last post with image hosting and the lighter blue in some was from an earlier working version.
  2. I decided to play around with the Panthers uniforms and see if I could make an updated version. I wanted a set that reflected the only uniforms the team has ever worn but that would represent a modern upgrade with the new ownership group in place. Some of my biggest changes were: 1) Dropping the use of silver. I don't mind the Panthers use of silver for the most part but in trying to create a streamlined design 4 colors just felt tough to balance. Silver didn't feel like a necessary part, especially on the away set so it's now gone. 2) Making the helmet black. I wen't back and forth on this. I have never loved the idea of black helmets for the panthers, mostly because I have never seen one that looks great IMO. Especially after changing the logo a few year back a lot of concept work for the Panthers is just putting that logo on a black helmet. I think my problem with that is the lack of a consistent outline and no keyline on the logo cause it to get lost on a black helmet. I tried adjusting the logo, thickening some of the blue parts and making a consistent blue outline. I think it came out ok and black with that logo is the best of all the options I played with. 3) Removing the helmet stripe and changing the facemask to blue. I don't think this set needed a helmet stripe. I originally had one that matched the pant stripe (which comes from the original set), but it seemed like overkill. I think the blue facemask adds enough flair that the helmet doesn't look "plain" without a stripe. I'd love some feedback on this. 4) Making the home jerseys blue. I think it offers great color balance with black pants and a black helmet. It also allows for an all black alt for "big games". 5) Moving the classic shoulder loops to the sleeve and making them consistent across all 3 uniforms. I was really going for "modern classic" with this. Hopefully this set can be worn for 20+ years like the first. I also made an alternate version of white pants and a pair of blue pants that I may post after I get some feedback on this set.

  3. Ironically I find your post much more biased than the one you’ve quoted. Also disagree with your brand value rankings, not sure what makes you think that. I think this brand has value separate from Richardson. I would guess before this weekend most people didn’t know who the owner was and after the sale most won’t remember it. Although I do hope they take down that statue.
  4. Announcement video from the Hornets App
  5. From the wolves Snapchat. Interesting that they're pushing a throwback T
  6. I'm really glad they used team colors on the ad space and that they adjusted the color to match each jersey. At least that helps them become not as noticeable.
  7. My old school, South Mecklenburg in Charlotte NC, currently uses a basic paw print ie Clemson to represent their mascot the Sabres. In the past however they have had a really cool (but poorly rendered) Sabre head with swords behind logo. I'd love to see what you could do with that. I spoiler tagged some bigger examples too!
  8. Hawks official announcement: http://www.nba.com/hawks/welcome-club The new uniforms will be unveiled before the draft and are "the most modern and cutting edge in the NBA"
  9. Stretch unis are holidays/Latin nights/st patricks/etc.Yeah it says stretch jerseys have the same trim as the normal home/road jersey so usually just means a wordmark change.Question for those "in the know"...if you had an Adidas SLD login would you see the things that are blacked out TBD?
  10. For those who don't wanna click the link this is a summation of sorts
  11. So many teams with "pride Unis" and those usually seem to be sleeved unfortunately.
  12. Gretchen stop trying to make BATFBATS happen. It's not going to happen.
  13. This is how the New York Giants SHOULD look. Isn't this how they DO look?
