  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. Without further ado, your UPDATED Carolina Panthers: Here is a side by side of the logo adjustment: And some close ups of the helmet and uniforms:
  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. As long as I live I may never know the appeal of designing these uniforms this way.
  8. I thought the exact same thing. Like asking for your favorite candy bar, saying Hershey's then saying you hate chocolate.Anyways, this thread practically already exists http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/89169-sports-logo-prototypes/
  9. Don't have much to add except that the "B" Honey Drip logo is drool inducing. I absolutely love it.
  10. Hate bumping this just to ask, but, has anyone successfully downloaded the AI version? seems the link is broken. If anyone could give some insight or pm about it thatd be awesome. Thanks!
  11. My guess is they used a picture of the Vikings throwbacks as a base image for the photoshop.
  12. Man if the vikings look anything close to that it will be a top 5 look in the league IMO. And that division as a whole will just look sharp. That look looks really solid and cohesive so I hope it is something similar to that. Good work.
  13. Sam Mills was also a player for the panthers and is the only player to have his number retired by the panthers. They started the keep pounding campaign that year as he and the current player Mark Fields were both battling cancer. "Keep Pounding" started as a cancer research fund if I'm not mistaken. In the recent seasons, however, the team has adopted the phrase as a battle cry of sorts with a lot of players and fans often using the hashtag #KeepPounding on twitter and it appearing on a good bit of merchandise (and obviously the jersey collar). Personally I'm ok with it and I've seen the whole discussion so far so I won't add to that because its all pretty much been said but as a panthers fan I look at it more as a respectful tribute and legacy than a money making scheme. Just my 2 cents.
  14. I had forgotten about this & I really hate to see when this happens to great players. That they have to play for the raptors?
  15. Looks like a heavily modified version of Agency FB Bold (you should be able to find this all over the web). Good luck matching up all those serifs. :-p Thanks agency is exactly what I was looking for
  16. Anyone know the font (or a similar free one) currently used by the Maryland athletic department? for reference: http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/74381421997/Maryland_Terrapins/1997/Wordmark_Logo
  17. That's not the wrong uniform for Maurice. That's not fair. I've spoken with Maurice recently. He's really turned his life around. He's living in Omaha and is involved in Church over there. He speaks to kids about the dangers of gang involvement and iirc, he goes to prisons to council inmates. He's a gym rat too, he is great shape as well. Lighten up, Francis. It was a joke, sort of. It's a tired joke. Seconded. It's been years. Glad to hear he's doing well, for whatever reason I always wanted him to succeed.
  18. A bunch of guys have worn high socks, goggles, masks and short shorts too. I think Kobe was the most memorable from that era. I honestly have no recollection of Kobe wearing tights. I do remember dwade setting a trend though. I'm not sure however if it was high socks/compression leg sleeves/ or tights. Either way I remember wade with covered legs but never Kobe. Oh and Reggie miller I believe it was had those little finger sleeve thingies. I definitely remember the tights thing on both kobe and d-wade and I also remember it spreading obnoxiously like wildfire into my middle schools team and I was lame for not wear tights all of a sudden (it was a confusing time no doubt). D-Wade also had the period of the bandage below his eye before that was black flagged by the commishs office. More example here, here, and also here.
