    If you want to test yourself, make a wordmark based on the ‘R’, or use their current wordmark if you want to get rid of the redskins logo. I know you tried out some wordmarks, but I don’t know if it would look that bad. As for what the Yankees do, their cap logo and jersey logo are the same concept, but relatively distinct from one another. If you want to go that route, that would also be interesting.

    Wow I completely forgot the Yankees use an old school NY on the jersey and a new one on the cap. Maybe I'll try playing around with it.

    In honor of Opening Night, I decided to experiment and create a different style of Nike NBA jersey called the Legacy uniform. These involve a combination of different eras of the respective team combined into a single uniform. This means there are varying styles, colors, and logos. Below each uniform are the aspect of the uniform and the era it's correlated to. I'm starting this series off with some Atlantic Division teams:


    Boston Celtics:

    1950s-60s: Chest text

    1970s-90s: Number, pant logo

    2000s-Present: Pant stripe, sleeve pattern



    Brooklyn Nets:

    1960s-80s (As the New York/New Jersey Nets): Side pattern, pant logo

    Early-mid 1990s (As New Jersey Nets): Chest text

    2000s: Uniform Color

    Present: Number font



    New York Knicks:

    Late 1960s-70s: Chest text, pant logo

    Mid 1980s-mid 1990s: Primary and Secondary colors, number font

    Late 1990s-Early 2010s: Uniform side design, sleeve pattern

    Present: Tertiary color


    The rest of the division and more will be coming soon, but let me know what you think!

    Great start. I like the old school Celtics font across the chest, and I love you put the Yankees NY back on the Knicks uniform. My only complaint is there is no NBA logo on the back. My advice would be just putting customizing the template with the NBA logo as a permanent layer. Good work!

    Hmmm, yeah. I kinda saw that when I was doing them, but I felt like putting them on a white background helped. Looking now, I think you’re right and further depictions will reflect that, including the one below:


    Rough sketch, but I mentioned the faux back helmet with the red jerseys and wanted to see it. Also, I’m really digging the stripes and I’m considering putting them on the helmet full time. Anyone else feel like that’s a good idea?

    These are sick! Love that you let us see both Pat the Patriot and the Flying Elvis.

  4. I'm back. For the first time ever in one of my concepts, I used a professional looking PSD mock up (done by an amazing member on this forum) on an actual designing/photo editing software(Affinity). I started playing around with all the options and then decided to make an actual concept. 


    Vision: I wanted to test my skill when using an actual photoshop program, and to make my work more polished and clean compared to my old work that was sloppy. For the actual concept, I wanted a modern vintage look for a very classic NFL franchise. I decided to use a darker burgundy and a darker gold than what the Redskins use in the NFL. I felt it helps give the vintage vibe I was aiming for. I tested some wordmarks for the uniforms across the chest and they looked just awful, so I went with my other plan which was to use a customized alternate logo. For the number I decided to use a drop shadow instead of a traditional outline, I was inspired by being teams that are unique such as the Lakers. This is also the reason I decided to do straight nameplates instead of a curved one, I noticed football is the only sport that doesn't use curved, so I used them on this. I didn't want these to be that similar to any other uniform. I highly enjoy the look myself. I hope you guys do as well. Thanks.


    *I understand the MLB logo is unfortunately missing. I saved my PSD file earlier and when I opened it back up for some reason the outlines were all over the place, so I made the decision to forgo the MLB logo in order for a cleaner presentation. Thank you.

    Funny you should mention....


    New England Patriots 



    No more silver. I tried it, but it didn’t seem necessary, especially when I began having difficulty incorporating it into the uniforms, so it has been dropped. 



    Similar to the current, but different in every way. The base is now white instead of silver, the mask is now navy, rather than red, and the logo drops silver, replacing it with white. 



    Three colors: Navy, white, and red. Navy is the primary home, because what color did the Americans wear in the revolutionary war? Blue. We fought the British, known as the Red Coats. It bothers me soooooo much that the Patriots classic uniforms were red and that a decent size group of people want red to be the primary. That’s historically inaccurate! Okay, now that that rant is over.... I wanted to bring back the over the shoulder stripes, but with a twist. Back when the Flying Elvis logo was first introduced, the pants had an interesting stripe sort of modeling the logo. I freaking love that stripe. I modified it slightly, dropping one stripe to make it a double stripe, rather than triple, and used it over the shoulders. 



    Two pairs, white and navy. As you couyhave predicted, the pants have the same stripes as the jerseys going down the leg. 



    At home, primarily navy over white, on the road it’s reversed. Navy over navy is a nope, though white out is an option. The alternate jerseys are limited to the white pants, as navy pants would make it look bottom heavy, in my humble opinion. Who knows though, maybe once a year they could throw the stripes on the helmet, swap in white masks, and trade out Elvis for Pat in a full-fauxback... sh!t, now I regret not drawing that... gimme a minute lol ? 


    Ready for the pictures? Are you sure? Well, here they are anyway:





    I regret not using Josh Gordon. It could’ve been 11 12 13 and satisfied my OCD

    Man those are sweet! Very unique and clean. Big W

    Time for another one, let's see how this goes.


    Tennessee Titans


    So the Titans recently got new uniforms and well, they missed. Now that's not to say parts of it weren't good, as there were parts that are salvageable. Nevermind, screw it, time to start from scratch.



    I tried to manage to use 4 colors, both blues, red, and silver. I know that's a lot, but I think if it's balanced well enough, it can work. Hopefully mine is one that works.



    We're going crazy right off the bat. The flames from the logo are on each side of the helmet coming from the face opening. If they doesn't make sense, I've got pictures. The rest of the helmet is silver and has a Columbia Blue face mask.



    Home, road, and alternate jerseys in Columbia, white, and Navy, in that order. I couldn't decide if there should be a red jersey a navy jersey and spent quite a while thinking it over, but in the end I decided on navy because of the Titans history being more navy than red. As for the design, I took the yoke from the previous set and gave it a red outline. I saw it, decided I wanted a little more than that, and used the sword-yoke from the current set (WITHOUT THE BEVEL. No double silver on mine) while still using the other color to carry it all the way to the end of the sleeve, so for example, the home jersey's yoke states silver, comes to the sword point, and then is navy the rest of the way. The number font is the one that had been used on social media and was presumed to be the new font until...... yeah. They're dumb.



    Three pairs, silver and both blues. The pants have the yoke turned into a stripe down the side and thats about it. 



    At home, stick to silver-Columbia-silver, a home uniform used but a related team in the past. On the road, either silver or Columbia pants, navy mixed in very sparingly. With the navy jersey, navy or silver pants. Socks are available in both blues, so the top of the sock should never clash with the pants.





    Now that you see them, how do you feel? Are they better than what they currently have? The same? Worse? What could I have done differently? Let me know!

    Love the red trim on the numbers. Anyway we could get a Patriots set that maintains the flying elvis logo?

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Next up, the New York Giants.

    This is essentially a modernization of their 1971 uniforms. Striping consistency is restored, with the exception of the home jersey, which remains stripeless.

    Grey pants would be worn the majority of the time with this set. White pants could be substituted a few times per year.

    The primary logo depicts an interlocking N-Y with a G and the Empire State Building as a backdrop. I figured since 'Giants' probably refers to their skyscrapers, they should have some kind of reference to it in their logo. The red G with a blue border is also consistent with the striping.

    A simpler version of the logo appears on the helmet. For some reason, anything but a plain white logo looks weird on their helmet.

    C+C is appreciated!



    Thats insane. I been playing my giants franchise on Madden 19, and seriously have been doing that exact combo basically with the color rush tops, GREAT WORK!!!

    Look, while this is a big improvement from where you began, this concept is still very crude.  There is a lack of color balance between the wordmark/numbers, trim, and side striping.  To go along with that, the numbers are much too large.  Anyhow this concept is already incredibly similar to the late 90's early 2000's look.  I would suggest injecting a little more creativity and time to improve a quite frankly, very simple concept.  

    Thank you for the feedback. I wanted to start with a simple concept so I can start getting my presentation better, and then work my way up.

    A couple of minor housekeeping suggestions. You want to keep the edges of the side view box as straight lines. Currently you have the bottom of the jersey side view and the top and bottom of the shorts side view interrupted by a white line. You just need to extend border of the box all the way across. Use a line tool set to three pixels and select the color of the box and draw it across the edges. That will maintain a nice crisp presentation and avoid any confusion.


    Right now I'm not sure if you want white outline across the top of a truncated jersey side panel or if you want the panel to continue from the waist all the way to the armpit. 

    Keep trying and keep experimenting with the tools in your software. 

    Noted. I will do that for my next concept.

    Try to make the outline widths consistent between the side panels and the shorts,it would look more cohesive.

    Very minor detail as well: Nudge the "NEW YORK" wordmark a tiny bit to the left as it's not centered right now

    I like this and could see New York using this as the community inspired jersey someday. It really looks good. Black SHOULD be a Knicks color. The Empire State Building is an interesting idea, and I like that you added a woodmark instead of a logo. I’m impressed that you took criticism and changed the uniform. Definitely making steps towards the right direction. Keep it up.

    It looks like the Empire State Building is going to tickle the player's armpit.

    I like the blue... 

    Thank you all for the feedback, and some for the kind words. I am glad that I can listen to all your feedback now without getting angry.

    Looks much more cohesive matching the waistbands to the shoulder stripes and i think it’s almost there! Did the silhouette look too goofy at a longer size? I think it’s a little too short here. 

    I also wanted to make it taller, but it starts looking a little funny, so I opted for the shorter one.

    Looks pretty good man! I’m in a minority thinking that the Knicks made black work pretty well with their identity, and I like vol 3 here! 

    Did you mess around with trying to get the Empire State Building silhouette on the uni somehow like DoctorC said? 

    I just whipped something up, I appreciate the kind words.
