  1. https://aaf.com/ Co-founded by Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian, the AAF will debut a week after the 2019 Super Bowl. There are a few familiar faces spearheading this new league, including: Troy Polamalu - Head of Player Relations Jared Allen - Player Relations Executive Justin Tuck - Player Engagement Board of Advisor The league will begin with 8 teams with a 12-week schedule. Games will be broadcasted on CBS. Fans will also be able to stream games via the Alliance app. Darren Rovell tweets the league will offer players a variety of perks including Win, Stats, and Fan Engagement bonuses. Rovell also tweets the league will follow suite with the Atlanta Falcons and offer value pricing on food and drink at stadiums. https://twitter.com/darrenrovell/status/976116728907395072 https://twitter.com/darrenrovell/status/976115504019537920 Team locations will be announced in the coming weeks.

  3. Hi all, With the AAF season underway and looking more and more like an NFL farm system, I decided to take that literally. I have assigned all 32 NFL teams an affiliate farm team and given them an assigned stadium. However, I will keep the current eight teams and assign them to NFL affiliates with minor recoloring to match their respective teams (they may receive new stadiums to scale down though). I will be going division by division and explaining team names, starting with the AFC East going till the NFC West. I'm excited to work on this, so here goes nothing! Toronto Hogs (Buffalo Bills Affiliate): Nicknamed the hogs due to "Hogtown" being one of Toronto's many nicknames, Toronto would make a great ground for the Bills affiliate, as it would allow for the NFL to expand internationally for the first time and since the Bills played a game in Toronto annually for many years in the past, the affiliate should have fan support. Orlando Apollos (Miami Dolphins Affiliate): The team name and logo remain the same, but are recolored to the Dolphins' signature teal and both shades of orange they used in their history. New Jersey Fighters (New York Jets Affiliate): Obviously a reference to a fighter plane, like the Jets and the logo is in a similar style to the parent organization, even with the impending branding change. It would allow for the team to hang onto their older, retro identity. Providence Minutemen (New England Patriots Affiliate): Referring to the famous soldiers during the American revolution, it fits the Patriots' brand and identity. Let me know your thoughts/suggestions! I will be doing the AFC North next!
  4. Well with a couple of games played I have really enjoyed the alliance so I decided to make some concepts. I think each uniform is pretty good from a design stand point and most teams thankfully have contrasting socks, so I didn't go too crazy with designs. I intend for all the teams with logos to be on both sides of the helmet. I also got ride of the side panels on all the uniforms because I just think they dont look too good. I may make alternates and away jerseys at a later time but I heres my take on the AAF. First up is the Hotshots and the Stallions. I really love that the Hotshots went with a yellow jersey because its a unique look that they can own. I kept the helmet, the font and the color balance the same. I used a similar stripe pattern to mimic the stripes on the starter jackets the coaches usually wear. I also added a full pants stripe for a more professional look. For the Stallions agin kept the basic color balance the same because I think its a great new look that has grown on me since the release. The biggest change was to fill the sleeve caps with the part of the logo so the stallion can be implemented into the look. I thought of putting it on the helmet but I like the way the mane looks. Font is the same and I made the pant stripe more prominent. Next is the Apollos and the Express. When it came to designing the Apollos I wanted to balance the colors better, but keep the same distribution throughout the uniform. The shoulder yoke was okay but I ended up scraping it for a contrasting collar and sleeve caps. I liked the font and decided to use a orange drop shadow as the main design element on the whole uniform. Another thing I think the AAF needs is sleeve cap TV numbers because every team has them on the shoulders. I know some people dont like the orange socks but I think it can work because of the facemask. Finally I wasnt a fan of the way they appiled the helmet logo so its in a basic placement. The Express I felt was lacking any real design elements besides basic color blocking. Again I wanted numbers on the sleeve caps and got rid of the weird fading stripe design. I replaced it with a standard classic football stripe that ties in with the helmet logo better. The helmet is the same although I pondered removing the fade. I know the jersey is basic and looks kind of like the Texans, but I thought it worked for the overall design. On to the Legends and Iron. I think the Legends already have a great look so not too much change here. However I added the crown to the sleeve caps and used the arm trim as part of the logo. I really disliked the look of their pants stripe so I just matched it to the helmet stripe for consistency. I also love their number font, it has a nice retro modern look to it. I know a lot of people dislike how plain the Iron's uniforms are, but I think it adds variety to the league. I also think the logo less helmet works great and puts emphasis on the stripe. The number font is great and I added to the sleeve caps rather than shoulder numbers. I wanted to match the helmet stripe on the pants, but I kept their unique side panel design on the pants. The biggest change was to have contrasting socks because every football team needs them unless mono white. Last but no least, Fleet and Commanders. The Fleet were a team I thought went a little crazy with their uniform design, but they have grown on me in the last couple of weeks. I kept the helmet the same besides the logo which different on the in-game helmets. For the Jerseys used the chevron design on the shoulders and move the number to the sleeve. I debated what I wanted to do with the numbers, I like the font, however didnt know if I wanted to keep the drop shadow. I tried yellow number with a gray shadow and vice versa, but it didn't look to great so I went with solid numbers. For the pants I added a full stripe and kept the chevrons to match the helmet. I felt the need to keep the yellow socks to balance out all the yellow in the rest of the uniform. When I first saw the Commanders I loved the number font and helmets but the rest seemed crowed to me. To fix this I wanted them to have a more classic look with sleeve and pant striping. Nothing too special, but the pants stripes may be too crazy for some. I also tried to distribute the colors better than they currently are. Constructive criticism is welcomed and I'd like to hear your guys thoughts on the AAF and the direction its going with its Stater uniforms. I think they did a great job for a new league, but they could be more personalized.
  5. Some of you might be aware that a new spring football league, the Association of American Football (AAF) is kicking off (or rather starting from the 25 yard line) this February. With all the team logos being released, I figured I'd through some field concepts out there. AAF Logos Starting with the San Diego Fleet first I used the same number font and grass pattern that was used the last time the Chargers played in San Diego, since the Fleet will be playing in the same stadium. Thought about using a helmet logo at midfield as the Chargers did, but the uniforms for each team haven't been unveiled yet, so I'm not sure what the helmet will look like. Maybe something I come back to. I think for all the fields, the AAF logo should be on the field, no smaller than 4 yards in width, as I have on this field. Since it's a new league, it needs to advertise itself in every game. Speaking of advertising, I wouldn't be surprised if advertisements were added to the actual fields, like in college bowl games, since that's a revenue source for the league.

    AAF Concepts

    Now that the AAF has unveiled their eight teams' logos, I've started working on some concepts for uniforms and fields for the teams. With Starter coming in so late in the game, I figured using an old Nike template with switched-out logos would make sense, as they would be playing catch-up with the big boys of the uniform world. Each field, however, is identical, minus team branding and colors. First up are the Orlando Apollos. The stripe on the pants and helmet comes to a point from the bottom like the arrow in the team logo. The helmet, sleeve caps, pant stripe, and gloves all follow a gradient between the two oranges the team uses in the logo. Next team up are the San Antonio Commanders. With the unique color scheme of maroon, red, and silver, the Commanders' uniforms feature silver helmets and pants that match because that's something you should be able to do as professionals (here's looking at you, Cowboys). Maroon is the featured color with red used as an accent, and the home uniform features the wordmark and maker's mark reflective in silver. With such a bold color scheme, I didn't want to busy up the uniforms, so there's no striping to be found, although the numbers have a double outline to keep from feeling boring. The Memphis Express are the last team I have ready right now. The team's split wordmark and logo inspire the jersey, as the numbers are split with differently-colored tops and bottoms. To make sure the numbers are legible, they are outlined. The outlines don't match the same half between home and road uniforms to give the team a little extra quirk. Comments and criticism welcome.
