  1. The Indiana State Fair logo got revamped this year, and I must say they did an awesome job. Seems to be part of a whole rebranding initiative for the fairgrounds...
  2. Nice work on the Cubbies. While I don't mind the white-trimmed wordmark and numbers on the current road set (they do match the logos), the route you went looks good and has history with the club. The piping you added to the road and alt looks really nice, and is MUCH needed. My one complaint would be the NL patch on the blue jersey. I don't think anyone likes that thing lol. I'd get rid of it and consider adding the primary logo to the (player's) left sleeve, or even using the primary on the chest and the walking cub on the sleeve.
  3. @Carolingian Steamroller The 40s set didn't have a helmet logo, so I wanted to be as authentic as possible on the throwback. I would have considering changing it up and throwing back to the white C era if the unis weren't exactly the same! @Silver_Star I'm not a big fan of the Honolulu blue facemask for the Lions. I think with silver helmets I just prefer a silver or dark facemask. Any other opinions? I know the NFC North is kind of boring haha
  4. Alright, next up is the NFC Norris Division. Chicago Bears - Tweaked the home sleeve/sock stripes to be equal widths W/O/W / B / W/O/W / B / W/O/W. - Flipped the colors of the road pants stripe to match the road sleeve stripes. - Kept the 1940s throwback. Detroit Lions - Removed black from the colors scheme. - Kept the helmet/pants stripes – with blue replacing black on the outside – and tweaked the sleeve stripe. - Brought back the Thanksgiving day throwback. Green Bay Packers - Tweaked the sleeve stripes – green/white/green with thicker yellow on either side – to better work with the helmet and pants. - Removed the collar stripes and added sock stripes. - Kept the blue and yellow throwback they added last year. Minnesota Vikings - No more black facemask. - Got rid of the awkward serif/point things on the numbers. - Changed the stripe coloring on the white pants to match the white jersey.
  5. Love love love the Padres. The color scheme, logos, font, and unis are all gorgeous. And the sand road works really well with the brown and yellow. The only criticism I have is the spacing of "San Diego" in the primary logo. Shorten that space between the words a little (similar to the full wordmark) and this is perfect.
  6. As noted in a picture a few posts up, needs a third sleeve stripe. Why two? There's no history there with Houston. This is just generic, catalog order stuff. I think this his works pretty well. (Shameless plug alert.)
  7. Wisconsin looks great other than the chest W - would've rather seen a word mark. Love that they're using a (condensed) Aachen for the numbers! Not sure how I feel about ND. The sleeve design though is taken from the basilica (see below). Hopefully it looks better on the player cut.
  8. Forgive me if this has been covered, but Virginia Tech has a new template and number font for 2016. Love the numbers...they seem timeless, like they've been around forever.
  9. I will say the purple came out darker on mobile than it did on the computer. If you open the image in a new tab and zoom in you can see the flag design better. But the point was for it to be really subtle. In certain lighting the sleeves would look all black, then when the light hits it right the purple shines through. As for silver vs. gold, I'll wait and see if I get some more opinions, but I like how the silver turned out.
  10. Up next, the AFC North. Baltimore Ravens - Silver replaces gold. - Helmet features a purple-flaked finish, similar to the Jaguars old helmets, and the sleeves and pants feature purple-to-black color changing material. I know many don't like the Ravens' blending of purple and black, but I think they need to go further with it. - Subtle Maryland flag pattern on sleeves. Cincinnati Bengals - A return to a more traditional look, with tiger stripe shoulder loops and straightened pants stripes. - Number font stays, but sans drop shadow. - Orange alternate features black numbers and NOB to add a little more black to the look. Cleveland Browns - Sleeve stripes kept to the caps. - Used the number font that matches the official font used for the wordmarks, marketing materials, etc. - No pants wordmark. Because duh. Pittsburgh Steelers - Pared down the sleeve stripes, removing the bottom yellow portion. Plenty of teams have had to do this over the years, and I think it still looks alright. - New number font that is modeled after the Steelers wordmark. - New throwback alternate from 1966-67.
  11. Update time! Got rid of the collar stripe for the Eagles (updated in OP), and played around with the Cowboys. I shrunk the star a bit and moved it up, so three points are now showing. Let me know if you think it's an upgrade...I don't want to go full double-star (as shown above), as I don't really like how the sleeve extends up into the star. I wanted to incorporate it more into the sleeve cap.
  12. Love the simple green jerseys for special games. I know what they're going for with the Shamrock Series jerseys, but I do miss this look. But like Georgia fans, we've also had some less than stellar moments in green...
  13. Darken the gold and remove the blue strokes in the stripes and numbers, and Pitt has a really nice set. As is, meh.
  14. @RickAZ The Cards have been done for awhile, and I think you'll like what I did. Unfortunately the NFC West is the last division I'll be posting, so stick around! @scraw28 With Dallas and NY in silver pants, I wanted to keep the Eagles green and white with silver accents. @JTswag187 I'm not a huge fan of the current yellow pants, but I'll try it out and see if I like it with matching stripes. It could be an alternate option for a couple home games a year.
  15. @bigmike The Cowboys star would be centered on the top of the shoulder. The way the template is set up makes it hard to center things there, as they end up too close to the NOB. You'll notice the TV numbers aren't centered on the shoulders either. Also, I wasn't sure about the Eagles collar stripe, so I'll probably update and remove it. @RickAZ I didn't want to bring back kelly green for the Jets and Eagles, and I like the Eagles midnight green much more than the Jets dark green. So I stuck with it. And yes, the pants options are interchangeable!
  16. Apologies for the lack of posts, the holiday weekend got in the way. Up next is the NFC East. Dallas Cowboys - Went a whole different route here, with pseudo-stars on the sleeve caps/shoulders. - Return of the classic number font. - Standardized the colors, going with navy and silver. New York Giants - All jerseys and pants now feature Northwestern stripes, utilizing blue, red, and grey. - White jersey striping is taken from their current alternate pants, which I really like. - Alternate red jersey returns after a 9-year hiatus. Philadelphia Eagles - Black and charcoal be gone! Simplified to a midnight green and silver color scheme. - Two racing stripes on the jerseys and pants, with the sleeve caps also featuring reflective feathers. - New number font is a block base, with tweaks to reflect the wordmark. Washington Warriors *ducks and runs the other way* - I'm not super gung-ho about the Redskins changing their name, I just feel that it's eventually going to happen. - New logo features simplified feathers, a W with three stars as on the DC flag, and a criss-crossed double stripe around the edge. - Tweaked the classic double stripes to criss-cross in the middle...no specific reason, I just thought it looked good.
  17. Some responses to feedback... Miami: I know they've always had the orange outlined numbers, but I went with the dark aqua to match the interior part of the striping pattern. And I think the subtlety helps the striping stand out. Pats: The shoulder loops are the same width as one of the red pants stripes, so I feel like there's enough consistency. And I tried about every color for outline on the white jersey loops, and silver looked the best IMO. Jets: I'll play with the socks to make them match the jersey striping, which would help make the jersey striping less random. But that may end up looking too similar to the Dolphins.
  18. Solid update on the Bengals. A nice advancement of their current look. Only thing I'm not a huge fan of is the NOB font - it's a little stout. Nice work on the Browns. I like what you did with the stripes, though I'm not sure how the extension on the back of the jersey would work with longer names. And I'd prefer an outline on the numbers, but the shadow isn't bad by any means.
  19. Instagram filter. Never judge the color of something based on an Instagram post.
  20. Thanks for the comments all, keep 'em coming! I'll play around with adding a jetstream into the Jets' NY logo.
  21. Should be fixed now, I was updating with higher res images.
  22. First up, the AFC East. Buffalo Bills - Wide, red, tapered stripes on the helmet, jersey, pants, and socks. - Changed the facemask to blue and removed all navy. - Alternate is the "standing buffalo" throwback. Miami Dolphins - New striping pattern that reflects the design of the logo and makes orange more prominent. - Wavy striping on the sleeves and socks. - Dark aqua outlines on the numbers and NOB just looked really cool to me. New England Patriots - A bit of a blending of eras here, taking the current look and giving the jerseys traditional shoulder loops (that go all the way around!) and pants stripes based on the logo, similar to their first Flying Elvis set. - Red alternate jersey, creating a look very similar to their pre-Elvis days. New York Jets - KELLY GREEN! - Combined the double stripes of their current/original look with a green helmet with the NY logo to bring elements from all eras. - Jet stream sleeve stripes continue onto the chest, taking advantage of the Vapor Speed jersey's lack of seams.
  23. This is, I believe, my third go-around on redesigning uniforms for the NFL, and I'd say it's my best one yet. Just a few ground rules to kick things off: - I'll begrudgingly be abiding by by the league's one-helmet rule. - All teams will have the Nike Vapor Speed uniform system. - Socks are now one-piece, similar to last year's Color Rush, allowing for more flexibility in design. AFC East | AFC North | AFC South | AFC West NFC East | NFC North | NFC South | NFC West
  24. I found the story very interesting, so thanks for sharing! And welcome, hopefully things only get friendlier from here.
