  1. I've had a few recent field art ideas, and figured I should let em be seen, so here goes. Packers 1-essentially their sleeve stripe as Notre Dame-like slashes Packers 2-gold endzones with slash marks Saints 1-honestly, the Saints' real field kinda bores me whenever I see it. I thought diamonds could work here, and also figured it was high time for a NOLA endzone. The Big Chin Guy appears in the NOLA endzone, with the fleur de lis on his shield replaced by the NFC logo. The story behind that is I'd initially had the NFC logo in the last diamond there, but it made it look like it read NOLAN. Saints 2-same idea, but the endzone background is gold. Saints 3-gold diamonds Saints 4-gold diamonds on black Speak on it...I'll probably do some more, or whatever.
  2. Greetings! With the NFL's decision to allow alternate helmets for throwback and color rush uniforms starting next year (great decision in my opinion!), I saw an article speculating on what the Houston Texans could do with the opportunity, and it inspired me to come up with an idea for that concept. This isn't anything revolutionary, but that wasn't the point. I recolored the Texans logo to use the colors of the old Houston Oilers, and designed the helmet around their old aesthetic. Whether the Titans would allow this, I'm not sure, but it does look pretty nice and I think it'd be a nice nod to the city's football past to roll out those old colors once in a while, especially with the Titans now using a color palette that isn't really much different from the Texans these days. Hope you all enjoy!
  3. The African American Sports & Entertainment Group -- an Oakland, California-based alliance of Black business people and community leaders -- wants to buy the City of Oakland's 50% share of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum complex. (The Alameda County government agreed to sell its 50% interest in that tract of land to MLB's Oakland Athletics in April 2019.) The Oakland City Council has scheduled a tentative July 20 vote on whether or not to approve the AASEG's term sheet for the city's Coliseum site stake. (Coincidentally, July 20 is also when the council intends to vote on a term sheet for the Athletics' proposed Howard Terminal ballpark.) A "yes" vote on the AASEG's term sheet would allow that company to start to negotiate with the Oakland city government on a deal to buy the city's half of the site. https://www.sfchronicle.com/local-politics/article/A-s-surprised-that-Oakland-may-consider-16242444.php Among the AASEG's long-term goals is ownership of an NFL team that would not only play in Oakland at a new stadium within the Coliseum campus, but also be that league's first franchise with majority Black ownership. https://www.aasegoakland.com/nfl-team https://www.aasegoakland.com/stadium For now, the NFL has not gone public with any plan for further expansion (let alone within the United States). However, almost a year ago at this time, the AASEG went ahead and supplied the league with a letter of intent to file a formal application for a new franchise. https://www.aasegoakland.com/our-letter-to-the-nfl https://www.sfgate.com/sports/article/NFL-Oakland-team-community-stadium-plan-Goodell-15354429.php Since it is likely that the AASEG could buy an existing NFL club and then at least try to move that team to Oakland, I gave serious thought to posting all of this in the NFL "Relocation Roundelay" thread. Also, given the impact that the AASEG's quest could have on the Oakland Athletics' goal of full ownership of the Coliseum complex (even though the A's want to have a new ballpark away from that swath of land as soon as possible) or even the A's ownership's dream of a Howard Terminal development (which is intended to be funded partially by redevelopment of a 100%-A's-owned Coliseum site), this post might be a good fit also for the A's "Wheel of Relocation" thread. However, I decided ultimately that all of this information is unique enough and complex enough to deserve its own thread.
  4. Following the Super Bowl, a blend of work-from-home malaise and a regular loop of Full Color Football and other old NFL Films compilations on YouTube got me thinking about an intriguing idea. AFL fan and historian Ange Coniglio suggested the following: what if instead of the AFL being absorbed into the NFL in the 1970 merger the two leagues had unified on an equal, but separate footing to form something akin to Major League Baseball? And thus the idea for Major League Football was born. This basically just gave me the excuse to take a stab at football uniforms for the first time in a retro context. So this series will include all NFL teams with following loose guidelines (don't apply too much logic to these): All 32 NFL teams will be represented with their current geographic location and franchise name, except for Washington which will get an original name and look. There is no AFC or NFC. The original AFL and NFL league names are retained. The Steelers, Colts and Ravens (by virtue of being the original Browns) remain in the NFL with the other original 13 teams. Any expansion teams post 1970 join the original AFL teams (I know, this would leave the AFL at an imbalance with the NFL until 2002 - this is just a thought experiment). All uniforms are rendered in a 1960's era aesthetic for consistency, simplicity and to actually provide some sleeve space to work with. I won't claim every design is overhauled from scratch. There are some uniforms that are too iconic to not replicate. Others are a blend of colors and elements from different eras of a franchise. For some teams it's simply me representing their "best of" visual identity. Some are fauxback designs for franchises that never existed in the 60's. At the very least, I tried to add one unique element to each set, even if it's only an alternate logo. So without further ado, here's the Major League Football series... AFL NFL East - Patriots - Giants - Panthers - Cowboys - Dolphins - Eagles - Jets - Steelers North - Broncos - Lions - Bengals - Vikings - Browns - Bears - Bills - Packers Game Officials South - Buccaneers - Admirals - Jaguars - Ravens - Texans - Falcons - Titans - Colts West - Chiefs - Cardinals - Raiders - Saints - Seahawks - Rams - Chargers - 49ers
  5. Well, things are a little bit different this year. With the new numbering policy taking effect this year, we’ll see rookies and veterans alike changing jersey numbers Bengals Rookie WR Ja’Marr Chase will be the first player in Bengals history to wear 1 Washington Rookie LB Jamin Davis goes with 52 Jaguars Rookie RB Travis Etienne and Rookie QB Trevor Lawrence Falcons Rookie TE Kyle Pitts will wear 8 Tamp Bay RB Leonard Fournette will change from 28 to 7 Colts QB Carson Wentz will wear 2 Vikings CB Patrick Peterson will wear 7 • Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders will wear 1 https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nfl.com/_amp/emmanuel-sanders-to-wear-no-1-for-buffalo-bills • Eagles Rookie WR DeVonta Smith intends to wear 6 or 3 https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/2021-nfl-draft-devonta-smith-reveals-he-will-wear-a-single-digit-jersey-number-in-the-nfl/amp/ • 49ers Rookie QB Trey Lance is sticking with 5
  6. I’ll preface this by saying a name like this should never see the light of day in the NFL. May I present... The Washington Battle-Ducks I’m not entirely sold on the duck foot design. I tried to incorporate an abstract “W” as well as a “hidden” Washington monument. After creating this, I discovered that “Ducks” were a form of military vehicle created for WW2 C&C is greatly appreciated!
  7. Hi everyone, I have recently started a new project where I have made it a goal of mine to combine all of the sports logos from NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB (and at times MLS) from all of the major cities in the U.S. and Canada to create a singular city logo. I know this has been done countless times before but the way my designs stand out is they are more cohesive. They feel less like something was Frankenstein'd together and can almost act as a standalone logo. Consider this the definitive collection. I say this with confidence because they were all composed in Adobe Illustrator with linework redone to make the designs more seamless, images rendered in crisp high resolution quality, each one taking several hours of work and trial and error and the cherry on top of the cake is that I own my own print shop so I can make stickers and shirts out of these designs. It's a true passion project for me. My journey began when I was first getting serious about graphic design, the summer right before I enrolled at DePaul in 2013. I created a mashup of all the Chicago logos because I wanted my own version of it. All the variations I had seen online did not do the city justice and I wanted something genuinely more badass that wouldn't look cheesy. I dubbed it "The Chicago Beast". It was cool for a few years and then I sort of forgot about it - well in 2019 I decided to take another crack at it and make a wildly popular rendition of this logo mashup combination - you may have seen it online (I made a North Side - Cubs and a South Side - White Sox version. Both featured elements of the Blackhawks, Bears and Bulls. I have made slightly different variations - some including the 6 star Chicago flag and others with different color arrangements. Fast forward to 2021 - A whole year of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown had me yearning for another creative project that I can do for fun. I decided - why not give every city this same treatment? And so I did - "Major League Remix" (#MajorLeagueRemix). I will be posting the designs in this thread and would love some feedback! While I do consider these designs to be 'complete', as a true designer, I know there is always room for improvement, especially since teams change logos frequently. A few things to note (ground rules) for my concepts: They don't necessarily have to use the entire design of the logo in the mashup. They can be as little or as much as possible - the only rule is they have to look cohesive and make sense - no Frankenstein work! I often use past versions of team logos although I try to use the current ones as much as I can. This is because my goal is to make the logo look good, and if I use the core logo, it may not look the best. I have struggled a lot to piece some of these together because of the lack of uniqueness, clean design or symmetry so I have had to resort to alternates. Colors are fair game - as long as they are pulled directly from within the color palette of the city's sports logos. They all have a white border with rounded corners for consistency and also to set them up for sticker printing. That is all! I am so glad to be a part of this awesome forum - I can't think of a more perfect place to post this kind of work on the internet.

  8. So we've all seen the leaks of the Bengals black and orange jerseys. Based on those leaks, I thought I'd take a guess on what the rest of the uniform will be. Since they keep emphasizing the terms clean and simple, and those were the same terms that got thrown around a few years back in the Jaguars redesign, I'm guessing the Bengals will go a similar route. The lack of the "B" logo anywhere on the jersey, as well as the teams insistence that the B is still their primary logo leads me to guess that it'll be on the hip of the pants. Stripe-less pants are definitely a current Nike signature, as well as three pants options. Also, although I'm not a fan, the solid color sock is where teams seem to be going. So based on all that, this is my guess. As always, I have zero inside knowledge, and zero psychic abilities, so it's only a guess.
  9. Another Super Bowl is in the books. Congrats to Tom Brady on his 7th Super Bowl ring, now the question is can he repeat in LA next year for Super Bowl LVI? The NFL has continued to go with a templated logo for next year's big game, though there is more color and other pluses, so I guess it's a step in the right direction. In any case, I've continued with my tradition of making a Super Bowl logo of my own for next year. Below is my design for Super Bowl LVI: since the game is in Los Angeles and since it's the first game in the Los Angeles area since Super Bowl XXVII, I decided to do a Hollywood/movie theme to make the Super Bowl seem like a grand premier event. I originally had a little more details in certain parts, specifically on the palm trees, but I felt that sometimes less is more for the eye. Let me know what you think!
  10. ...oh Lord, please tell me this isn't it. Source
  11. I opened this thread to get into a slew of uniform discussions. rules: 1 no extremists 2 agree to disagree is ok 3 pictures of what you think looks good are permitted 4 there will be lots of talk about monochrome This could be a disaster or it could be very productive!
  12. I wanted to get this out there before my love for this team goes out with Deshaun. This is some stuff I've been working on for while but hadn't made time to post it. The Houston Texans: One of the more "meh" names in the NFL. Used once before by a World League team in 1974-75 and named with the blessing of the former Dallas Texans now known the Kansas City Chiefs. When I saw the name unveiled, especially with the preceding video made everyone on think it would be bull related, I was underwhelmed. This paired with a RWB color scheme and navy uniforms that at the time would had been the 9th! navy jersey in use as a primary dark, disappointed me even further. (That makes this what, the 20, 30-something time I've complained about the navy jerseys?) While I like our Battle Red and white jerseys, I still think of what could been with the other identities mentioned in the poll preceding to the unveiling: So without further adieu I present to you: The Texans That Never Were. HOUSTON APOLLOS (V.2) HOUSTON BOBCATS HOUSTON STALLIONS HOUSTON WILDCATTERS
  13. I've always thought the Jaguars nailed it right out of the gate with their original uniforms and lament that they've strayed so drastically from what was an instantly recognizable, unique set. Here's my take on what a modern version of that original uniform would look like. The goal here was to undo some of the "sterile, generic football team" coldness that is present in their current uniform and bring back some of the elements that were distinctly Jacksonville. They could even call this change a "return to gold" - referencing both the early success of the franchise and their recent eschewing of the color.
  14. It's Week 17 of the 2020-21 season, so it's about time to start up this thread. All that we know is coming in 2021 is the new Packers throwback (was gonna release 2020 but got delayed) and the new Rams alternate (unknown if a recolor or throwback as of now.) The Nike Vapor Fusion template, which was tested out in 2020, is set to debut full-time for the NFL in either 2021 or 2022. Anything else that I missed?
  15. Some teams, like the Packers and Raiders, never need to change again. Others, like the Rams, Bengals, Titans, Cardinals and more, need to change ASAP. However, no matter how timeless/classic or dated/just bad they are, EVERY NFL team's uniform is going to be adjusted, starting with the.... Carolina Panthers 1.0 The Panthers current jerseys aren't bad(aside from the elongated pant stripe), but they could do without the silver. The helmet becomes black A new pointed triple stripe is added to the pants and helmet to match the shoulders Blue becomes the primary, while black becomes the alternate White jersey has blue numbers
  16. Vintage Variants is a concept series not unlike the Adidas Reverse Retro series for the NHL, but I'm not doing just flipped colors. I wanted to take looks from the past and do all kinds of variations with them. Some will be color variations, some will pull in different design elements, some will be inspired by local themes, etc. I will update this post as I release each team, going alphabetically by city/region. These designs are done on the VaporFlex Jersey Template I created for UniMockups. Arizona Cardinals This one goes back to the jersey worn by Larry Fitzgerald early in his career and pulls in the colors of the desert cardinal, a bird more common in Arizona than the red Northern Cardinal. Atlanta Falcons This one taps on a jersey worn by Deion Sanders and is essentially a Reverse Retro with a grey/silver base. Really love that old bird logo and this would be a great opportunity to bring back the red helmet. Baltimore Ravens This one hearkens back to the Ray Lewis era in a golden color with white removed from the number trim and left only in the coat of arms (white border also removed there). This would pair well with a purple helmet. Buffalo Bills This one kicks it back to the 1964 look but in a cream color, with elements added from the Buffalo city flag. Before you get mad and say it looks like the Chargers - relax, it's just a concept. Carolina Panthers This one is a spin on what's really the only uniform they've ever had. Blue numbers are in, using the original proposed shade (thanks to trucolor.net). I gave the shoulder stripes a tweak, adding blue cuffs with a blue helmet. Chicago Bears This one is a blue version of their 1936 jersey with a modified helmet. The white version was extremely popular, so I wanted to see the blue and did more accurate shoulder striping. Cincinnati Bengals This one is an orange version of their classic from the Boomer Esiason days with white tiger markings on the shoulders. Had to move the markings up a tad to fit today's jersey cut, but I like how it flows. Cleveland Browns This one is a variant of their 1946 jersey with a darker seal brown and vintage silver (h/t TruColor.net) with less orange. The helmet is also silver, not, white.
  17. I thought I'd give a try to redesigning NFL uniforms. I've got a few in the can and if there is any interest for more I'll post them. The first team the hometown one, the Cleveland Browns. In all honesty I think the current uniforms are near perfect, so instead of posting a near identical uniform to the current one I thought I'd change a bit. I added a number outline similar to the 1984 uniform and simplified the stripes on the shoulders. I also added a patch, using the concept CB logo from the 60s. Constructive criticism is welcome, I don't makes these uniforms with any fancy program so I am sure there is room for improvement.\ First is the home Uniform with the standard white pants. Next are the orange pants, I am unsure whether or not this would be their primary pants set or not. Away with White Pants Away with Orange Pants
  18. Hey ya'll, So I started this project back in the spring (when quarantine hit), not intending for this to be anything serious. This was just something fun I could do from home while everything was locked down. But over the course of this year, I've just been knocking out 2-3 sets per week in my free time. And lo and behold, I've finally gotten through all 32 teams! Disclaimer: I'm by no means a "pro user", I drew all these up using MS Paint and they're nowhere near the level of detail that I've seen from some users on this site. I'm just good with Paint and it's good enough to get the job done, so that's what I used. A couple notes: I drew these sets up assuming there were no limiting factors (i.e., " the one helmet rule") that would affect uniform design. Teams can have as many different uniform/helmet combos as they want to. Every team will have at least 4 different uniform combinations: a Home set, a Road set, an Alternate set, and a Throwback set. Some will have more, some will have less. I also won't show every possible combination, just the ones I think look best together. I didn't just change things for the sake of changing them. If a team already has a good design, then I most likely didn't make any major design changes. With all that being said, I'll start out in the AFC East and work my way west. Comments/feedback welcome! AFC East Buffalo Bills v2.0 Miami Dolphins New England Patriots New York Jets AFC North Baltimore Ravens Cincinnati Bengals v2.0 v2.5 Cleveland Browns Pittsburgh Steelers AFC South Houston Texans v2.0 Indianapolis Colts Jacksonville Jaguars Tennessee Titans AFC West Denver Broncos Kansas City Chiefs Las Vegas Raiders Los Angeles Chargers v2.0 v2.5 NFC East Dallas Cowboys v2.0 v3.0 New York Giants v2.0 Philadelphia Eagles v2.0 Washington Football Team v1.0, aka "Washington Red Wolves") v2.0, aka "Washington Warriors" v3.0, aka "Washington Football Team" NFC North Chicago Bears v2.0 Detroit Lions v2.0 Green Bay Packers v2.0 Minnesota Vikings NFC South Atlanta Falcons Carolina Panthers v2.0 v3.0 New Orleans Saints v2.0 Tampa Bay Buccaneers v2.0 NFC West Arizona Cardinals v2.0 Los Angeles Rams v2.0 v2.5 San Francisco 49ers Seattle Seahawks v2.0
  19. So I started working on a concept the other day where NFL teams were converted to NRL uniforms. I am considering adding names on the back of the jerseys to add that bit extra element of the NFL touch to the designs. I'm not sure if I'll do every team as most teams uniforms are really quite bland and lack some form of design element. New England Patriots New Orleans Saints Seattle Seahawks Tennessee Titans
  20. Imagine the Bucs' creamsicle set in pewter and red? Or Randall Cunningham in Midnight green? How about Drew Brees in powder? Speaking of Brees, here are the Saints throwback in Khaki gold Megatron in double blues? The Bills crazy 2000's set, but with less crazyness Jamal Adams in Hunter Green & Black(not what you're thinking) Matt Hasselbeck in Navy and lime Dolphins' 90's look, but with no navy
  21. TEAM LIST Arizona Cardinals Atlanta Falcons Baltimore Ravens Buffalo Bills Carolina Panthers Chicago Bears Cincinnati Bengals Cleveland Browns Dallas Cowboys Denver Broncos Detroit Lions Green Bay Packers Houston Texans Indianapolis Colts Jacksonville Jaguars Kansas City Chiefs Las Vegas Raiders Los Angeles Chargers Los Angeles Rams Miami Dolphins Minnesota Vikings New England Patriots New Orleans Saints New York Giants New York Jets Philadelphia Eagles Pittsburgh Steelers San Francisco 49ers Seattle Seahawks Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tennessee Titans Washington Football Team I have been a uniform geek for a while now. I joined the boards on my 13th birthday, and I just celebrated my 16th last week. In the past 3 years, I've thought of some good uniform concepts for sports teams, and I've been willing to show them. But the problem is, I can't make graphic designs to save my life. So I've been at a stalemate where this will be hard to work unless I find another solution, and I found it. The Maximum Football Franchise, a Canadian-made football series that is the second best on current gen consoles, outside of Madden NFL (which isn't great to begin with.) Two extremely nice perks about this; one, it has pretty simple uniform customization, (simple, but it at least has it,) and two, it's the only current gen game to have college football (but we will get to that when we get there ) And so here I am, making uniforms for all 32 NFL teams for personal use and internet use. DISCLAIMERS: I will be using the game given logos on the helmets, yes, there is a logo editor, but it's super hard to use (you can't just upload images, you have to make them using shapes, and like I said, I'm not a graphic designer.) Each team will get a certain amount of uniform combinations: some will get just a home and away, and some will have a bunch. With that being said, let's start with the first team in our list: The Arizona Cardinals! HELMETS! PRIMARY WHITE HELMET Used with all uniforms except for the black alternate. All white, the only true blank helmet in my NFL PRIMARY BLACK HELMET: Used with the all black alternate exclusively. Gave them a gray facemask, I personally am starting to grow fond of gray facemasks. HOME COMBINATIONS! RED OVER WHITE: The Cardinals have become so dated that in my opinion, turning to the past is a better idea, especially see what Nike has done with one of their divisional rivals this year. RED OVER RED: Same home uniform with red pants. Stripe is hard to see, but its an inverse of the white pants. AWAY COMBINATIONS: WHITE OVER WHITE: Stays pretty classic overall, pretty much a inverse of the home. Gave them a yellow wordmark, because I think it's unique enough to stand out without ruining the vibe of the uniform. WHITE OVER RED: Standard white uniforms with red pants. Yes, I know the yoga pants effect is there, sue me, I'm not all that bothered by the pants and socks matching. ALTERNATES: BLACKOUT UNIFORM: Gave the Cardinals a BFBS uniform, to really only be used once or twice a year. No white to be found, except for the wordmark and the player names, so there's legibility. ARIZONA PRIDE ALTERNATE: An added alternate that uses yellow, as a nod to the state flag. Shoulders would've had like a sun ray gradient, but I did the best I could do With that being said, C&C is appreciated! Next team up is the Dirty Birds!
  22. The concept of this project is to take the 32 teams of the NFL and re-imagine them as if there's an alternate universe version of the NFL with the same locations, but different team branding and divisional alignment with Under Armour providing the uniform equipment. Also, I switched out one "New York" team and one "Los Angeles" team for St. Louis and San Diego teams. The team concepts won't be posted in any particular order and I will update this post with links to them for reference. NFC North: Detroit Green Bay Kansas City Minnesota NFC South: Atlanta Jacksonville St. Louis Tennessee NFC East: Buffalo Carolina Philadelphia Pittsburgh NFC West: Arizona Dallas Denver Los Angeles AFC North: Cincinnati Cleveland Chicago Indianapolis AFC South: Houston Miami New Orleans Tampa Bay AFC East: Baltimore New England New York Washington AFC West: Las Vegas Lights San Diego San Francisco Seattle
