  1. That was my first thought, line weight is so crazy thin. And its all over the place. The C with the claw works, but everything else feels like clipart, as you said.
  2. It’s incredible how being on board has affected my life recently. Ill get back to that... so, I approached Hanford HS in Richland, WA about 5 years ago with the idea to create one brand. (There’s a thread, I won’t bore you w the details.) and over about a 3 year period Inrebranded the entire school. Sports team uniforms and logos for Football, Track, Volleyball, Bowling, CC. I recently changed schools and football wore a new mark on their helmet I blended w their old look. So... 2 High Schools 1 Pro Cycling Many Cycling clubs including a Swedish team that still uses an element from my original design for them (2014) in their current kit. So back to this board... a few weeks ago, I was approached through CCSLN email, by a full service marketing/design house @Nuke Digital concerning my work with sports branding; and, yesterday I accepted an offer to join their creative team.

    Vicis Zero1

    Id love a vector version
  4. Helmet is an upgrade What was the back on Mariota's butt? was that a silver jersey panel? not a fan. Pants are a hot mess... The Columbia color rush just wow I think the Columbia over white will be ok with helmet and dark socks Disappointed, but light years better than what Jags and Bucks did a few years ago
  5. SG Helmets has a reported 1% concussion rate, and a new more attractive model. Arena team in Texas reports 0 concussions over a 4 year run with them. Sadly companies like Riddell (BELL) are les than forthcoming about their concussion rates. My son's football career came to an end early his senior year due to multiple concussions while wearing the Speed Flex. For that reason I have purchased 2 for my children still playing football... that and the youth helmet is 1.8 pounds! And concussions are caused by shearing of nerves in the brain (think popping the head off a dandelion) which can be caused by whiplash/bobble head effect. That can happen with zero head trauma (IE helmet to helmet, or helmet to ground) My son's was from helmet to helmet. Sorry... off on a tear.
  6. Love this. I have a guernsee I designed for a Swedish Aussie Football side Hanging in Melbourne’s museum. Cant wait to see them!
  7. Could do a sledgehammer hitting a spike shaft of hammer has railroaders cut into it or a silhouette of a tail worker driving spikes. Aetna extended with hammer above head. Railroaders running to front of helmet in perspective
  8. I don't know... matching the base of the bell to the rest of the bottom (perspective) and its pretty solid.
  9. I've rebranded 2 schools and it is not lucrative. Ive made some of my time back thru apparel, as I have maintained the rights to produce apparel and other gear. That said Ive done far more for free than for pay.
  10. I’m not sure which I Love more. The gold strike makes it perfect. But the laces. Wow.
  11. Absolutely love the Jets Logo... perfect! Giants, I really like the first one... maybe make the perspective a little deeper, like the updated one. And add a cap. think Chrysler Bldg top. Rams, I like a lot. A LOT!
  12. Lions - Incredible, love the simplicity and upgrade in the logo. Brilliant! Chargers - Love the Charging Rhino, not 100% on the colors, but I like it. Bears - Fantastic! 'Nuff said! Colts - Just wow, simple, and perfect. Really the only way you could take that logo and make it modern AND better! Niners - Love it. The concept and utilizing iconography is fantastic. too much white on the helmet however... maybe lose the fill and let the gold show thru. Browns - I don't have any love or dislike, its just kind of meh. Cowboys - Id love to see you do something as amazing as the Colts upgrade. I've been trying to come up with something for years, and that Icon is just incredibly hard to better. that said, I think it is a great direction, but not finished/ Steelers - I really like it more off the Helmet than on it. Maybe with a Gold Helmet (NO hate mail from Steelers fans please!) on a gold helmet it would be pretty fantastic. Vikings - Hands down the best upgrade of the bunch, and that is saying a lot. The Vikings need to take a look at this one and go that way. Raiders - I'm just not sure... Panthers - Just love the colors and clean cat... Colors for sure. Lose the whisker stripes and its perfect. Buffalo - Love the blend of the 70's classic and the 80's update, while still modernizing... the head turn is a nice touch. Saints - I really like it. Washington - I don't know. I like the Redtails concept, but the stripes are hard on a helmet. And just a star with a ring is far too Dallas Cowboys. Again like Dallas, I think its a great start, but not finished. (helmet work, not logo)

    My concepts

    The top one I really like. Strong, fierce, without needing to show teeth. The bottom one, I actually prefer the front of the original. The back end is a train wreck, rather than completely redesigning, try taking the front and cleaning up the “just got my head blown off” look.
  14. Love the color change, but the antennae stripes have always put me off
  15. Im your huckleberry...
  16. Former UCI Continental team manager here. I love the SUNWEB simplicity (and one of my kids now races for them, bias?) AG2R is actually interesting, as is the FDJ. EF will be a easily visible from above, and in the pack, but TREK is brutal... they have been since they went pinstripes several years back. Lotto Jumbo, black and yellow, incredibly easy to find your guys in the race. Like stated above, ROI is huge, and visibility is key. Astana is now iconis... Moviestar has cone from a navy w vivid slime green M to this very muted look. Not a fan.
  17. I wasn’t sold on the Colts for about 5 seconds... then Bam! Yeah...
  18. How about Copper. That is what the area is known for. Try Copper numbers w Cardinal stroke. Copper stroke on the whites. And put stroke on TV numbers.
  19. Absolutely love it. Someone at their office needs to see this!
