  1. Ravens have military-like patches that must mean something internally, and use different templates for their same uniforms. They're also one of the few teams that don't wear specific mesh or lightweight practice jerseys w/ screen print either.
  2. If the nike speak was determined pre-logo, yes, I like to hear that. if it was thrown on to describe a part of the logo when the real reason was "it looked better"? Gross. Not NBA, but the Kraken's speak on the logo is fantastic. Each part sounds like something they came up with, then built the logo afterwards.
  3. I've always laughed at the team headshots using incorrect uniforms, or players wearing preseason numbers (since they take these early summer) James Robinson #38 (wore 30 all season) D'Andre Swift #6 (32 in games) Steelers still use an ancient reebok jersey for headshots:
  4. I just assumed the youth jerseys were taken at the same angle as the adult ones, so good idea! I guess I'm trying to say I'm looking for pics like the ones I attached but for all 32 teams, I've tried to draw some myself and its just taken a very long time, as i'm no drawing expert. Appreciate the help!
  5. I will say, both the Kraken and Vegas gave us excellent aesthetic additions to the NHL. Both teams went with a fresh new color scheme in top American sports, and built a very collective identity that all meshes well. We're lucky, both team names couldve led to gimmicky and rough designs. I love the logo they made, its got a perfect blend on uniqueness, representation, and just looks damn awesome on a hockey uniform. They really, really crushed the branding. And the ocean backdrops in their graphics? Heck yes. The uniforms are excellent in color balance. I'm hoping we get socks that just match the sleeve stripes, preferably in the same order and the knee being that light blue / teal. The shorts will be navy, and I dont think they need striping if the socks are done well. My only nitpicks are that (and I can't tell), that the numbers should be the color of the lighter shade of the blue, and the outline is the darker. Would've liked to see maybe a touch of color on the collar, but it will look fine plain. We knew what it was going to look like, but for seeing it in use for the first time, I give it a 9.5/10. Hard to ever say "perfect" but its excellent.
  6. Does anyone know where I can find images like the ones below of the fonts in the NFL today? Trying to make graphics of my fantasy football league but lack a lot of the numbers (and can't draw them all out myself). The site linked to these only has a few.
  7. Hah, I mean its a little pathetic. Not a fan of Guardians as a name, and they look like they tried to keep the same "vibe" from the offensive current look. I'm all for keeping the colors, but they had to distance themselves from the offensive identity and it seemed like it was a bare-minimum type of change done. Spiders would've been both new and classic, and (In my opinion) do a ton for marketing and merch. Just my 2 cents.
  8. Something I just realized and can't unsee... The g in Portland's "Oregon" bottom loop doesn't close. I get why they did it for double digit numbers, but man it hurts.
  9. I realy like it. The mountain comes to a weird peak because the bird is slanted down to the right, but overall I like it, and it'll look great on an actual uniform. I'm assuming the silver and gold aspects will be as such on the uniform, otherwise i would've much rather they opt for just a gold and grey solid color in those spots. Like the jaguars, it's metallic gold on their game helmets and wherever it can be, and a mustard yellow in other applications
  10. Guess who's back... back again...
  11. I bought a Trevor Lawrence jersey as a Jags fan. Bought it in medium. very normal build, I'm 5'10" 175, and its pretty form fitting around chest and stomach. the sleeves go down to my elbows. I don't understand why they're like this, but can't we get some sort of happy medium? I mean, it's not like shortening them removes actual elements of the uniform... And the Rams did this uniform right. They really did. If they came out with this, the blue uniform (with no number gradient), and strictly blue and yellow pants, I would've loved it.
  12. In a vacuum, these jerseys are nice. I really like them. However, every time they wear these, it's one less time they wear the current look, which is among the very best in the NFL, if not already #1. Sucks, but I'm sure this jersey will sell enough!
  13. Sixers instagram has them changing to white uniforms for tonight. Good call.
  14. Fanatics dump. Apologies for repeats if there are any.
  15. The nets have 3 separate black uniforms, and the iconic Celtics have 2 greens and 2 whites. Now at least those are in team colors but that’s the problem, forcing teams to have 4-5 uniforms either gives us redundant alternates or uniforms nowhere close to the teams identity.
  16. Schedule for the series is: (PHI) White @ (ATL) MLK (ATL) Red @ (PHI) Blue (Game 2) (PHI) White @ (ATL) Red (Game 3) (PHI) Red @ (ATL) Black (Game 1) Source: NBA Lockervision
  17. Sixers-Hawks is an excellent example of how simple, yet unique uniforms can look gorgeous, as well as giving us 3 distinctly different uniform games with no loss of "Who am I watching?" 2 of the best dressed teams in the league.
  18. Its moreso the size of the spacing that interrupts the numbers. And this means no outlines either, which makes it hard to read on kits with any back pattern.
  19. I'm kind of a fan of that league-wide font mentality if there's like a reward for being able to wear it, like Gothamite said, a badge of honor. Conversely to the awesome Premier league font, the EFL one is awful.
  20. My overarching point is when we look back at these playoff games (Which might be legendary, who knows), we're seeing teams in uniforms that dont look like the normal looks. This Dame time game, the Nuggets are in a light-ish blue? Lakers-Suns has these great games with neither team in purple? The Wizards have worn grey in all their games? We'll forget these team looks in 3 years then go "oh yeah, the Jazz had those red jerseys then" type of deal. I'm definitely not a believer in forced home and roads, I just wish these teams made the city uniforms feel a bit more special rather than the primary look they want to wear with the traditional stuff being worn when they "have to". And the city uniforms should follow team branding guidelines, hot take. And can we do away with "earned"? what's the point? I know, money, but like, why????? Those are just forced bad designs anyways. Teams look the way they do because they picked that in rebranding. These kinda 1-off alts are just, there, and seem like were scraping the barrel for ideas.
  21. They actually haven't been all too bad recently, at least not in the numbers department. Sure a little funky but easily readable: They have had their share of stinkers though too: Some favorite fonts of mine: I like the tasteful flair. Gimmicky is fine if the numbers are consistent, readable (a balance between thick and thin), and don't look sloppy. Some fonts I just can't get behind with an odd 1 or a 7. There's no perfect science to it, but there are definite misses, Madrid's of 2021-22 is a miss (and last year's was a massive hit)
  22. I consider myself a massive fan of custom fonts. However, there's a point where they get to be a bit ridiculous, and this new Madrid font ruins a classy and wonderful shirt otherwise.
  23. Madrid nailed that kit. "Fly better" is a bit weird but I'm not going to argue about what specifically the sponsor puts, it's at least in team colors. As for my Spurs, This is my favorite kit of theirs in a long time. Simple is effective. The texture to it makes it look sweet up close, but clean from afar. Wish the AIA was the same blue, that's my only gripe, but they did a great job with it. A blue stripe on the collar or sleeves would be a nice addition if anything, but I'd always rather the plain versus anything over complex. Upset at the comments about Kane leaving, let me try to continue to enjoy the career-to-date Spurs player. The transfer paycheck would be nice but this team needs him if they want to not be mid-table!
  24. Interesting to see Swift stay in #32, as he wore 6 in camp all last year. Guess the price to pay off the #32 uniforms wasn't worth it (and as only a 2nd rounder, it's not like hes got a giant paycheck)
  25. To further the NY branding argument, Think New York Knicks. I couldn't tell you what a Knickerbocker is, but they're a legendary team because of history and New York. The Jets current uniforms are okay, I think the black alts are unneeded with the dark green, but I can live with them. I like the stripe being unique, not a gimmick, and fits the modern look. I wish there was some sort of jet (or branding hint) in the logo, since their logo hasn't reached identifiable icon status (which allows skipping the actual team name) like the Bears and Cowboys. We have to read the word Jets to know its them, unless you're plugged in to the uniform design community like us all. A bit gaudy with the gradient, but I liked the Memphis Express helmet logo (worn by Jets legend Christian Hackenberg)
