  1. To play a bit of devil's advocate here, I don't think that it's a necessarily bad thing to follow current trends. While some trends fade quickly, other times the risk taken allows for a team to enhance their brand and create something exciting and unique that ends up lasting for years. I think that sports aesthetics would be extremely boring if all teams stuck to the same 4 or 5 tried and true design elements.
  2. This is super awesome, I seriously love it.
  3. The Oilers identity is so much better than the Texans it's not even a competition. That said, I agree that Texans has been relevant long enough that a name switch wouldn't be necessary. It will never happen anyway, the Adams family are very stubborn about keeping that history.
  4. Hopefully that's the case. From what insiders have been saying, it sounds like the only thing different may be the number font unfortunately.
  5. Based on the leaks, he may have had more input on the designs than he realized.
  6. This is solid, but the number colors need to be reversed. I posted another one of their teasers a couple of pages back that pretty much confirms white numbers with a powder blue outline. TRI STARS CONFIRMED (but for real, can't think of any other state symbol that would function this way)
  7. Personally, I think that navy helmets COULD be really sharp. With the way the Titans liked to wear their uniforms, the white helmets made things unbalanced. The background images definitely look like that a similar yoke is still present as well.

    It really feels like they're rolling those out as new logos as gradually as possible for some reason. The current usage doesn't make any sense, they don't function as 'alternate logos' when they look entirely different in style than the primary logos.
  9. That monarcas cap is really awesome, I'd love to see a team take up that mascot full time.
  10. The Titans' trolling continues... They're really on to us guys.
  11. ^ Pretty much what he said. You have some really great elements, they just don't come together well currently. There's not really a hierarchy at all right now, so my eye doesn't really know what to read first. I'd say play with scale first if you don't want to remove any elements and if you can't find a balance you like after doing that, then looking at simplifying and possibly removing things like Bruins said. Overall, great start, I really dig the colors and symbolism.
  12. That's a really neat logo, and nice colors too. Their site is very professional-looking as well. In all, I am very impressed. Weirdly enough, the website doesn't seem to indicate where in Wyoming they will be playing.
  13. I'd just like to say that I really love the way that you approach all of your concept threads. It's so nice to see people who try new things and take a lot of risks, and as a result I always love checking on your threads to see what you're doing. There are some really great and unique concepts in here. Your Wild concepts are my favorite.
  14. Yeah, I'm going to go ahead and say that there is no chance that is true. The "Remember the Titans" BS is the funniest part, since that's most often used when people are making fun of the team.
  15. I was thinking of the past few years as a wider window, pre-McElwain included. Florida's base look has always been amazing, but they have been wearing weird alternates for a long time. Even under McElwain they would switch up the regular set with alternate helmets and pants that didn't really function as well with the regular set. I actually really liked the white helmets worn with the pro combats, but the one that they've tried using recently with the tapered stripe and shiny decals is the kind of stuff that Florida really doesn't need.
  16. So, the norm for Florida over the past few years then?
  17. I wouldn't put a ton of stock into that quote. She's also said things like the old jerseys won't look out of place next to the new set. A lot of the buzz now has become that the changes are more subtle than many might have thought. Still noticeably different, but nothing like gradients or a complete color scheme change. I obviously can't confirm any of that, but the video and "tradition evolved" tagline seem to point to that as well. I am thinking that the biggest change will be seen with the helmets, which is what most people disliked about the current set anyways.
  18. The Titans just posed another teaser image giving us the best look yet at the chest area and number font. It looks like angular serifs in the style of Joe Bosack's font.
  19. The video confirms exactly what most have thought, that all of these rumors have been complete and total BS, and that really nobody knows much about how these will look. It makes me feel a bit better that these don't appear to be too insane. *knocks on wood* First observations, navy will still definitely be the primary and the numerals will still be white with a columbia outline. Red and silver also appear to be featured as accents in some capacity. Other than that, not much can be conclusively drawn. One of the shots appears to show a columbia yoke in the style of the current set, and yet another looks like it shows a silver yoke. No helmet tease is also interesting, but they're likely just saving that for a later tease closer to the 4th. Perhaps the hint of red seen in the top left of the collar shot is the fabric reflecting red facemasks? Probably a stretch to say the least, but I could see it looking really good as a subtle Oilers callback that helps balance some of the red accents that appear to be present.
  20. Congrats on finishing this. It's no small feat to redesign even the league's most classic and beloved logos, and I really appreciate your commitment to making good logos that are also unique and exciting. I'd love to see you continue with an NFL Europe revival if you do choose to do so.
  21. It's interesting to me that the Browns are in that exclusive group of teams that will drive pages and pages of discussion no matter if anything has even been confirmed or not. I'd say more recently that the Jags have definitely joined that group as well.
  22. I really love the form of this one, really great work and a unique concept for the Titans. The only thing that irks me is the beard being blue, although I am unsure of how you could recolor that to fix it.
  23. I'm scared. I truly believe that nobody has any idea what these will look like based on the difference in rumors that have gone around.
  24. I say keep it coming. I think that the Heat's regular set is fine, but I love the Vice set so much. Their team has been successful in red, but their identity has changed since the Shaq, Wade, and Big 3 eras so I think that a visual change makes sense as well. I'd love to see them switch to that design full time today.
  25. The Grizzlies are totally clueless when it comes to their brand. Since they unveiled the updated look (which is not great in the first place), each change they've made has been a downgrade. That gray/silver is too dark when paired with that navy and it just seems so unnecessary. I can already picture some muddled grey alternates being worn after this change. On the other hand, the Nuggets news is amazing! That color scheme is perfect for them and I'm excited to see it in action. Only drawback I can possibly think of is its similarity to the Cavs current scheme, but that's really not an issue to me.
