  1. General notes: 1) The CAA logo on the sleeves needs to be fixed. I don't know which program you're using, but it shouldn't be too difficult to make it sure it doesn't go over the edge of the uniform. 2) The uniforms as a whole could stand to have more variation. Every team doesn't need a pinstriped jersey, a pinwheel-style hat (I know not every team has one, but it's pretty disproportionate), and the same template of logo on the left side and a numeral on the right. Switch it up a little. 3) Make sure your NOB's are rotated enough that their bottoms are level. 4) Most teams don't have stirrups and a colored sock. Usually the bottom sock is just white. Team-specific notes: 1) C of C and Elon need to be further distinguished from one another. C of C uses more white in their logo, so maybe make their numbers white instead of gold? Give one of the teams pinstripes and the other not? The Elon logo on the jersey should also be a different color, probably gold, as this current iteration makes it nearly invisible. 2) This is a bit of a personal gripe, but I believe the color hierarchies on Delaware and Hofstra ought to be switched so that Delaware has the yellow numbers and Hofstra goes white. I find that to be more inline with their current brandings.
  2. Another thing I did. Hadn't posted an AFC South squad yet, so I thought I would do just that. NFC East will be next, and they're all pretty boring. HOUSTON TEXANS Continuation of my liking flags, tossing them onto the sleeve caps, giving the team a new font, and calling it good. Red's the primary now. That's about it. Like, comment, subscribe so I'm not just doing this for myself. Especially comment.
  3. Fooled around and thought about combining black and silver for the Panthers to create an anthracite look for the Panthers. It looks a little washed out to me, but it is something to look at. Also moved to a white facemask to simulate a panther's teeth flashing white in the dark or some other brandspeak garbage. Now, from one team with black and silver to another. LAS VEGAS RAIDERS This week, we received the news that the Raiders would not be changing their timeless look during their timeless relocation to Las Vegas. I did stay relatively true to that, but I thought a new, bolder logo would be more befitting of a team in Vegas. I also gave them a black facemask and black pants for their white and silver alternates. So there's the Raiders. Something restrained but refreshed for their new haunts. I'm going to do a different team after this.
  4. You should 100% keep the name of the series the same. It's perfect. Like Sparky said, the striping is pretty busy.
  5. Thanks! Always a big fan of your work. For Buffalo, I did intend for it to just be on the front. And now... CAROLINA PANTHERS This one is a redesign more inline with something you've probably seen on these boards before. It's more like my Falcons or Lions concepts compared to my work with the Vikings or Bills. What I did: -Removal of extraneous silver -Black helmet gives impression of panther lurking in shadows, ready to strike or some crap like that -Bolder font. Panthers are modern enough to get away with an italicized font (which I don't like in most football concepts) -Pants stripe drawn from helmet stripe -That's pretty much it Who should I do next? OR should I not do any team next, using my time instead to learn how to play the trombone, speak Irish, and train for a half marathon? Let me know!
  6. Hi, everybody. Did you miss me? After about a week of moving and getting that blessed Wi-Fi set up, I'm back in the saddle again. I tried the outline thing with the Bucs helmet and just couldn't make it work. So I'm pretty satisfied with what I have there now, and, in the words of John Fogerty, I'll shuffle off to Buffalo! BUFFALO BILLS Like the Vikings, Buffalo's redesign went pretty well, returning to an old-school look, and like the Vikings, I decided to go out of the box for this concept. In looking for a design element around which I could build an identity for the Bills, I centered on the bold red stripe which runs through their logo. It's strong and can evoke power, ferocity, and speed all in one. For that reason, I gave the Bills uniform a treatment similar to the Northwestern football team, running that red stripe right through the jersey and utilizing wide red stripes on the pants, helmet, and sox. Their alternate is their AFL throwback, which is just too nice to mothball. Overall, the hope is that this new uniform direction strikes a balance between tradition and modernity while making their opponents...see red (someone come murder me) I went there. And you didn't. Carolina probably coming up next. Like, comment, subscribe, Venmo me.
  7. Something along these lines? I'm giving it a go. The ship logo does have a lot of small details in it that make it pretty tough to be rendered monochromatically, though. Do other people think that the numbers are too far apart?
  8. Sure, I'll put up the Bucs next. Regarding the colors of the Nordic knots, while there are three different colors on the home, I think it does look best that way as it keeps all three colors in each third of the uniform and doesn't let gold and white touch. The gold pants can also be worn with every jersey, by the way. Now, onto the Bucs! TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS Their previous uniforms, with some modifications: Inspired by ghost ships, I wanted the Bucs identity to be spooky, dark, and mysterious. The towering pirate ship on the pewter helmet is meant to be like a ghost ship coming out of the fog. The alternate should provide that same sense with a unique light pewter jersey. Colors are garnet, pewter, and their current shade of dark brown. A pointier font and a sword stripe that inject the identity with some of that ol' swashbucklin' spirit.
  9. Editing to put this on Page 2 and because for some reason the away jersey didn't have a TV number on one side (that was not some conscious new-age decision) As I mentioned, my real-life changes to the Vikings would be very minimal; this is more fun and, I think, still looks good. I'm more than happy as a Minnesotan to rankle the traditional views of the Olsons and Hansons who get mad when you don't bring a Jello salad to the Lutheran church potluck.
  10. Your comments feed me and keep me satiated through this long journey of human existence, so continue making comments, especially on the Jets and Ravens. Now, since yesterday was Saint Patrick's Day, and this team's namesakes raped and pillaged the Irish many moons ago, I'm going to move from one purple team to another, and switch things up a bit with my hometown (and least favorite) team, the Minnesota Vikings! MINNESOTA VIKINGS Nike did an excellent job with the Vikings in their redesign, and all I would do to that uniform is bring some consistency to the numerals and get rid of the black facemask. But that's been done before, and isn't particularly fun or exciting, so I didn't do that (which is a surprise because I usually do all kinds of things that are neither fun nor exciting). Instead, I went pretty hard on a redesign. The numbers have a Nordic rune-like quality to them, and are the same ones I used as a concept for the Rochester Berserkers in my Professional Kübb League (shameless self-promotion). The Nordic thread continues throughout the uniform, with Nordic knot-inspired striping that, on the shoulders, is meant to allude to their UCLA stripes Minnesota wore on their away uniforms for many years. I also spat in the face of almost 60 years of tradition, replacing their longtime purple helmet with one of gold that makes more sense for a Viking helmet (even though Vikings never wore horns on their helmets), with matching gold pants now an option as well. This ought to get some people talking, and if it doesn't, I might just have to put the Packers in blaze orange and camo to get your attention.
  11. Good morning, Baltimore. BALTIMORE RAVENS I am of the mind that the Ravens logo is among the absolute worst in the league. The comically aggressive raven with a white beak (not a thing, btw) is a 90's relic. Ironically enough, I went back to their inaugural logos for inspiration, switching the bird from the sleeves to the helmet and vice versa. I also gave the bird a makeover, violently decapitating it and sewing on a new head. The helmet becomes an iridescent purple-to-black look reminiscent of the Jaguars' old teal-to-black lid, which is meant to mimic the way light hits raven's feathers. For the rest of the concept, I didn't really change much. I almost replaced the gold with red, which I feel captures some of the brooding menace a team inspired by Edgar Allan Poe is meant to evoke. But nevermore, because it just looked too muddy. I also didn't vomit the Maryland flag all over the place as too many concepts do; I'm a big fan of using flags in teams identities, but the Maryland flag makes what should be a simple and clean uniform too busy. In its stead, I took the checkered parallelograms and fashioned them into a pants stripe. It gets the point across without punching you in the face (still not sold on how it looks on the black pants; might be too much gold).
  12. Hoping for some more comments on Detroit, but I'm going to move on to another paragon of success (and, because I'm a masochist, my favorite team) the J-E-T-S (suck suck suck)! NEW YORK JETS I know they have a uniform unveiling coming next month, so I wanted to get this out before that or anything leaking. I'm disappointed they are doing a redesign, as I think their uniforms are just about perfect. I did make some important alterations, however. Their logo is pretty terrible, so I pilfered the unused Baltimore Bombers logo and put it in the classic green and white (and yes, I know not all bombers are jets, so shut up). The shade of green is different too, moving away from the dark hunter green that can at times look awful to more of a forest or British racing green. The alternate calls to mind the logo and uniforms of the 1980s. And, another new font! Yay! This one, called Bombardier, is meant to (kind of) evoke tail numbers on fighter jets to bring a refresh to the classic brand.
  13. Thanks for the comments, everybody. Here's that paragon of success, the Detroit Lions! DETROIT LIONS I personally really liked a lot of what they did in their recent redesign, such as the removal of black and the muscle-car-inspired striping. I was less enthused with the italicized numbers and the sleeve wordmark, both of which struck me as hokey. Instead, I drew inspiration from their excellent Thanksgiving Day throwbacks and kept it simple. The full-color socks would be a unique look in the NFL by my estimation, and (another) new font. Nothing life-altering. Some may say it's too simple, but I think it looks clean. Probably gonna do the Jets next.
  14. Gonna give this a quick bump for some more comments on the Cardinals and the Falcons. Looks like I'll be heading to Motown next, so expect that to be up probably tomorrow. Thanks.
