  1. You're right, not a lot of pixels to work with, but I'd just use a normal athletic block and elongate (NOT stretch, the horizontal and vertical weight looks to be equal) it to size. An elongated MLB Block might fit the bill nicely.
  2. For SNF, they use Ringside, not Arial. Good work on the rest of it, though.
  3. Yeah, you're right it is the 40th Anniversary of the 1964 NFL Championship. Couldn't find a flat logo with that coloring, but here's a textured logo from a poster that shows you at least what the details are:
  4. Dolmen with a linear crossbar on the A.
  5. I think this font is the one being used on their team website and digital materials as well. As a result, the "ATLANTA FALCONS" in the endzone and the field numbers are probably both Kairos Sans Condensed Bold.
  6. It isn't in a nice sortable table, but most football media guides have an all-time roster by number section.
  7. The current image issue I have right now is that sometimes the images aren't loading, but if I open the image in a new tab, they appear just fine. This doesn't happen a lot, just on some threads, most notably pitt6pack's NFL Fields Concepts thread:
  8. Well, since 3 and 4 are retired, and 1 and 5 are unofficially retired, it's kind of easy to keep the single digits off the field. The current single digits are Mason Crosby (2), J.K. Scott (6), and Tim (Freaking) Boyle (8). Another point with the single digits is that the media guide only counts players who have played a game, so that means there might be a bunch of back-up players in the single digits that just never made it to the field.
  9. The Packers do give out the 1 to some players in the preseason that you know are never going to make it to the regular season, like Jawill Davis last year: But you're right, the only documented player to play at least 1 regular season game for the Packers wearing 1 is Curly Lambeau from 1925-26 (and probably before 1925, as shown on these 1923 and 1924 programs, but the Pro Football Hall of Fame only has programs since 1925 and thus media guides only report uniform numbers since 1925). Curly also wore 14 (1927), 42 (1928), and 20 (1929, NFL Champion). Another rare number is the next one, 2. Mason Crosby is only the second Packer to wear 2, becoming the first player since 1926 to do so. After crunching the numbers, here's all the Packers numbers numbers that no one asked for: Non-retired Packers numbers that were worn during the least amount of seasons: 1 (2 seasons, as mentioned) 6 (9 seasons) 2 (15 seasons) 9 (18 seasons) 49 (21 seasons) Non-retired Packers numbers that were worn by the least amount of players: 1 (1 player) 2 (2 players) 6 (8 players) 94 (9 players) 69 (10 players) Non-retired Packers numbers that were worn during the shortest careers: 6 (1.13 seasons per player) 41 (1.27 seasons per player) 19 (1.28 seasons per player) 49 (1.31 seasons per player) 20 (1.44 seasons per player) Non-retired Packers numbers that were last worn the longest time ago: 1 (1926, Curly Lambeau) 5 (1988, Curtis Burrow; Don Majkowski did wear it during his 1987 rookie season as well) 60 (2007, Rob Davis) 49 (2013, Robert Francois) 57 (2014, Jamari Lattimore) 72 (2014, Garth Gerhart)
  10. For early 60's helmet numbers like that (Chargers and Broncos had them as well) I use a thinner LHF Egyptian with extended acute angles and higher middle bar on the 5.
  11. Tungsten Semibold and Agency Bold Couldn't find an exact match, but AmericanCooper Block Black has a similar structure to it.
  12. Well, Intel's brand history has all been in lowercase sans serif, but still a valid point about the current brand landscape. I feel like a better option would've been keeping this font but lowering to "e" to evoke the original logo. Quick and dirty mockup: I do have to say I like the diagonal squares applications. Overall, I'd say a lateral move though.
  13. The replica looks to be a slightly thicker Trade Gothic Bold Condensed, and the real thing looks more like League Gothic.
  14. That replica looks like it's using Arial Narrow Bold, but the real helmet looks to be Helvetica Bold Condensed.
  15. Great stuff, can't wait to see the state logo update!
  16. I initially thought that was the problem, but it was happening after the images were loaded, so I assume it's the ads like @Sec19Row53 suggested.
  17. Does anyone else experience skipping whenever they scroll on desktop? For instance, when I'm trying to scroll up it jumps back down a bit on the way to the top of the page.
  18. 80% of the time, I clean up the source and warp it back to as straight as possible if needed, then run it through What Font Is or WhatTheFont!; the other 20%, I know the font right off the bat. I like that script as well, so I was happy to do the work to find it for you. Love me some fonts!
  19. A solid update, and the horizontal bezels are perfect, but now the vertical bezels are mismatched; the lighting of the finial of the "a" should be flipped like Ted mentioned. To elaborate further on what Ted was saying, the bowl of a double story "a" usually descends a bit, but so does the tail when it's curled like yours does. I wouldn't raise the tail too much, but it could be raised a tad. Great work so far!
  20. I can dig this; however, I feel like rounding out the yokes on the shoulders and making the collar the same color to go full 30s-40s would look a tad better. As I adjust my glasses, I do have some problems with your abridged history of the Packers. The Packers weren't a charter NFL club; they joined in 1921, the APFA's second season. Also, the Packers have 13 league championships; 15 comes from counting both the NFL Championships and AFL-NFL World Championships in the 1966 and 1967 seasons which is redundant and inaccurate because the AFL-NFL World Championship was essentially a post-season exhibition game before it was firmly called the Super Bowl and represented the NFL championship after the NFL and AFL merged in 1970.
  21. I apologize if this theory has been said already, as I'm not following this civil discussion closely, but could the bone away unis be the result of trying to shoehorn Dodgers iconography with the Rams identity? I feel like the navy-white experiment was attempting to be close to Dodgers colors, and now the bone away looking like an over-designed college baseball uniform that's been changed into a football uniform. I dread enduring a game against the Rams these next 5 years...
  22. Came back and just noticed another thing: the lighting on the bezel doesn't make sense. If this "a" was a physical object, it'd be impossible to have light and dark edges look like that from a single light source. When adding a bezel to typography, a common way of making it look natural is having segments facing north and east one color, and segments facing south and west the other color. Here, the top and bottom of the "a" has different lighting than the middle bar, which couldn't exist in 3D space.
