  1. A big animal silhouette with a smaller animal silhouette inside it is one of my top designer pet peeves
  2. The Giants did in the 00's.
  3. Alexa, play "Bring 'Em Out" by T.I.
  4. Carolina, for sure. It's pretty wild they've gone so long with essentially the same uniform while teams with far more tradition & history have gone off the deep end.
  5. I wouldn't call it "fake" so much as potentially "custom." Honestly, for the price, its not a bad deal.
  6. The Instagram page in my bio is loaded with amazing jersey finds - I don't do thrift stores as much these days, but there are even better deals online if you know where/how to find them! As far as Goodwill finds go... I technically bought this about a year ago, but I don't post here much anymore, so... dropped off by somebody about a month after Brady signed with Tampa: Sold a week after the Super Bowl for $1,200
  7. At the risk of freely expressing my opinion, liberals wanted conservatives to go off & make their own platform. Within weeks, said platform was vilified & shut down over its content. Anyone clumsily championing the integrity of social media content will have their hearts broken when they look objectively at Facebook. Of course, none of that is relevant to this objectively poor logo redesign, so I'm glad nobody overstepped and let their misguided bias eek into this thread
  8. This might top News Corp's mismanagement of MySpace as the greatest destruction of a blue chip brand this century. Though, on second thought, it could just as easily have been purposeful sabotage to destroy one of the chief rivals to the Adidas brand.
  9. As a kid, I became a fan of the '97 Bucs & Broncos, '99 Titans, & '00 Giants based solely on their uniforms. I was also convinced that new uniforms magically made teams contenders.
  10. I've got a whole t-shirt shop that I'll add the link to in my bio!
  11. My newest drawing (since there's no Bills game today)… I think this passes for "fine art" in Buffalo, NY!
  12. Obviously, the #12 is the quintessential QB number, but I prefer the #11 from an aesthetic standpoint. I think of this as more of a kicker number, but I do like when a QB rocks the #1, too. Cam & Warren Moon are the only ones that leap to mind.
  13. I am taking the time to make one for every single team I'll post an update when they're all uploaded!
  14. The best thing you can do with Photoshop is ditch it for Illustrator. For the type of stuff people make on these boards, Illustrator is by far the better program.
  15. I can't find a larger image of this Buffalo Blizzard example, but I always thought the "white sleeves on a blue jersey" thing was a super cool/clean look (including the Cowboys '95 alternates):
  16. My six-month vacation ends next week - out here on Illustrator trying to make the most of my time
  17. I already bought tickets to their home-opener against the Harlem Ghostbusters.
  18. Aside from not representing my alma mater, the far-superior Niagara University Purple Eagles, this redesign is fantastic!
  19. I personally see it in every uniform that has ever combined red & green
  20. Why is this my new favorite helmet design?
  21. I still do a sports memorabilia online shop, so I try not to monopolize this thread too much, but this one is worth sharing! All brand new! Scored these for $6 each!!
  22. Buffalonian, Sabres fan, wannabe designer, etc, etc. - I’m disappointed. Of course, to whatever degree, this is all subjective & a matter of taste... carrying over the 50th crest texture is the star of the show, but considering all they really had to do was slightly tweak their old uniforms, when you isolate that task, they took it in several poor directions. The white striping on the blue jersey is indefensible & every bit as clumsy as the weird silver piping we finally just ditched. Considering how minimalist this design is in the first place, that (subjective) misstep stands out like a sore thumb. I can't stand "change-for-change’s-sake” design in sports. I miss the shoulder logos from the original, but I understand dropping them, I guess. The mismatched striping pattern on the whites still bothers me, too. The team supposedly wanted to “modernize” this set, yet kept this clumsy design detail that serves no aesthetic purpose beyond copying the original style (why fans value inconsistent striping for the sake of “tradition” is an entirely separate soap box). If the goal was to bring the OG set into the 2020's, correcting the mismatched striping would have been a far more economic & logical move vs. just clumsily throwing thin white stripes into the sleeves of the home jerseys that already had ample contrast. I know it all seems nit-picky, but when so much of the work was already done in the past, when you look at what this team actually created that was “new” (and what they left on the table in the process), I’m not thrilled. The Winter Classic jersey was a much more respectable push into a clean modern design that honored the original set. Then again, for almost the past two decades, there isn’t a facet of this organization that can get out of its own way.
