  1. 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
  2. When Cleveland AL released their new name, I was very happy to hear that it was Guardians. I've long-enjoyed the statues the name references. Heck, I even used that as a new name for the club in 2017! I even tweaked it a year later to use the classic navy/red: I was very happy with the name and identity idea. However, when the set came out, I had issues. Namely: 1. The weird bend in the "C," to emulate the '70s "C" for some reason. 2. The color balance looks to be keeping the navy-heavy road uniforms. 3. The flying "G" is a bad attempt at a 2.5 D logo (I do kind of like it, but I'm not that keen on it). 4. The lack of any logo of the statue. 5. The lack of any accent colors to help the team stand out among the navy/red hegemony (without dumping navy red). I solved these four problems through tweaking! 1. This fix was done through manipulating numbers in the released graphics. 2. I eliminated the all-navy cap in favor of an all-red one (for color variety) and only used red lettering with navy outlines on the home/road set. 3. I opted to create a new primary logo that took the winged letter concept into the 2D space and used the city initial. I also reshaped the wings to look more like the statue head wings and added a baseball in the wing bottom. 4. I updated my 2017 statue logo to better resemble the statues's wings and reflect techniques I've learned since then (building off of a Ottawa Senators 2D logo). 5. If you couldn't gather from the images above, a dark tan has arrived for statue. I have also replaced white with off-white (a la the SF Giants). These little steps will help add some variety into their navy/red color scheme. With all of that in mind, here are the sets! The logo sheet has been thoroughly explained above. The home and road set draws upon club history, while using the modern Guardians elements. The rigid cursive script and new wordmark/numeral font (I recreated/predicted the numerals from trailer images here) are here. Cream is now the base color of the home uniform, while each cap now rocks the red bill (which was the way the team did things from 1945-50 and 1975-1993). The overall template resembles that of the 1947 club, with contrast-colored trim on the plackets and sleeves (as well as three sock stripes with cream outlines). I opted for navy pants trim, because I liked it a bit more. I went with the wing-C on the home jersey (for referencing the city) and the guardian head on the road top (to allude to the team's new namesake directly). The alternates are a red and a navy top, with "Guardians" on red and "Cleveland" on navy. The red jersey has red socks, belts, undershirts, and hats (referencing the vest years). The second set of alternates include a red-heavy version of the home uniform and a fauxback to the uniforms from Major League II (worn from 1989-93). It has a guardian hat, albeit with white instead of cream. The jacket is a simple design, one which pays tribute to the '89-'93 racing stripes. The Cleveland Guardians have a pretty good base design, but they just needed some tweaking and more IRL references to really unlock some potential in the package. I'm going to show off a few more variations, along with a few additional name suggestions. C+C is appreciated, as always!
  3. Hi. I'm here to fix the NFL's uniforms. Nike has taken over and left us with some bad designs, and theres a few nagging things out there that have just held on, simply because people never bothered to fix them. I'm here to tweak (Maybe overhaul) the NFL's uniforms. Rules I gave myself for this: - One helmet shell, but facemasks and decals can change - Not changing any logos or colors, just uniforms - Color Rush is not mandatory, some teams will have them, some teams won't. - Ignoring the 3 year helmet, 5 year jersey change rule - Not really going in any order, might not even do all 32 - Colors were taken from the logos themselves or from teamcolorcodes.com (yes the colts are still royal blue I just used their digital color) - Yes they were done in Paint so they're not the *cleanest* but I did my best. - Assume mixing and matching is allowed, I won't show *all* combinations but can show one if requested - Moving Nike patch to chest across all teams I'll start off with 2, since my first (Colts) is very simple. Biggest changes are White Mask, number font, and stripe consistency. Next up, the LA Chargers. It's obvious they're getting new uniforms. Went bold on the Whites, Navy is the Color Rush alternate. Kept the Agency-esque font Any comments and criticism is welcomed!
  4. Watching the Seahawks in the playoffs this year, I've decided that I really like their color scheme. Even the neon green looks good in some applications. In particular, it was Pete Carroll's hoodie. And the way the colors work in light. But the logo itself doesn't work for me at all. It's bland and boring, and the gray and white blend together at distance. The original version of this logo was a lot better, with the second shade of blue. But when it was re-colored in 2012, I think they fumbled. Just not enough contrast. I got to thinking what the logo would look like with more green. Not necessarily one-color green, like Pete's jacket above, but just a little more. So I gave the lower stripe back its verdant beauty, and replaced the white for their silver/gray for good measure. Not an earth-shattering change, but to my eye, this works a lot better, and fits better with their history to boot. Your thoughts?
  5. I figured I could take a quick break from The Defunct Saga to do this. While the Cardinals may have a perfect uniform set and identity as far as the big picture goes, it develops issues upon closer examination. 1. The birds became far too large on the uniforms once the team began using the digital version of the birds in 2013 (for consistency's sake). Here is the '90s-2012 set compared with the 2013-present design. While it's a good change in principle, it looks kind of silly in practice. Not uniform-ruining (as some melodramatic people may claim), but it is an issue. 2. The StL insignia is a bit of a jumbled mess. I've talked about this in another thread, so I'll quote myself: I've done a fix-up in Project 32 that restored the back serif and resized a few details, but I don't think I went far enough. I wanted a longer bottom stroke on the "L" like in the various 1940s-80s designs both worn before and during the current design's tenue. I also wanted to bring in some differentiation between the letters, as used in the early-1970s: 3. Both "retro sets" could use condensing into one, a set that pays better homage to the 1940s period of the team: The current whiffs by using a red cap, front numbers, yellow bats, and no T-bar stripes (I'm not going to get into the powder blue, as quite frankly, I'm not keen on them wearing it). They also use the "St. Louis" script, when that script should be on the road uniform. My edits fix these problems. Logo Sheet: While the primary mark stays the same (I like that it's such a strong logo), the StL now has outlines that highlight the various interlocks in the design. The "L" is longer, the "T" has more breathing rooms, and the back serif returns. The sluggerbird design (which I debuted in Project 32, with some inspiration from @Htown1141) is now the tertiary. It's too good not to have in the identity! Home and Road Uniforms: These uniforms are an improvement upon my Project 32 design. I've restored the Rawlings Block NOB's (a lovely touch on their uniforms), smaller sock stripes (not this, even though the '60s socks had similar stripes), and the road cap. The road cap now has a red bill (like this fashion cap), as a way to bring it closer to the 1940-55 hat (one of my favorite designs in the sport) and compromise between the all-navy and red caps on the road. I also kept the "St. Louis" script on the road. The birds-on-bat have received a notable overhaul, as I've shrunk the birds back to their '97-'12 size (linked above). I thickened the navy parts on them to match the outline width on the bat/wordmark. This involved turning each element into its own object and manually resizing it/adding clipping masks/filling in obscured elements. Alternates: The retro alternate now has a more appropriate hat, a navy bat/yellow eyes and feet on the birds (like the 1940s wordmark), and the T-bars. I decided to keep the red hat/belt on the road as a "clash kit" to be worn against other teams with navy caps with extensive amounts of red (e.g., Atlanta, interleague against Cleveland, etc.). Jacket: Sluggerbird makes his return to the jacket, while the striping pattern and the insignia are on the sleeves. The comparison: Here's a full old & new comparison: I'd like to think that this is the refinement that the Cardinals' identity needs. C+C is appreciated, as always!
  6. (Bear with me, there is a concept here) I’ve been speculating that, since the Brewers have been ramping up their use of the navy/athletic gold Ball in Glove logo, they might be testing the waters for a change in 2020 or beyond. Now, that itself is not really a subject for this particular board, but it spawned something that I think it is. As much as I could get behind the BiG back to stay, I don’t like the blah navy color. It’s dark and drab, especially under the very heavy Miller Park roof. I’d like to see the Brewers adopt a slightly tweaked version of the darker cap, with a dark royal that’s brighter than navy but darker than the light navy of the throwbacks. Click to embiggen: Here it is in context, with the current alternate caps: The color is inspired by the first Brewers’ color scheme, used from 1970 through 77. Thanks to @TruColor for the details: Check out this game-worn Hank Aaron cap: That’s what I’m thinking about. Dark enough that they can still sell navy merchandise. Dark enough to stand separate from the throwback gear, so the Brewers can still sell all the throwback merch they want. But still bolder, more vibrant, more blue than the boring navy. So whaddya think?
  7. Well, I guess there's no better way to celebrate post #1600 than by launching my newest concept thread! Welcome to MLB: Project 32! After posting in my tweaks thread for about two years (where I'll keep posting little one-offs), I figured I should reorganize all of my concepts with new presentations, template tweaks (mostly altering sleeve and trouser displays), and other refinements. I will try to have regular updates, as long as my schedule allows it. Above are the preliminary colors for each team, along with new divisional alignments! There are no more Centrals, but rather two divisions of eight. The Astros and Diamondbacks have swapped spots (making the 1998 expansion an AL expansion, parallel to the 1993 NL expansion), while one team has been added to each league. The top two teams in each division make the playoffs (seeded 1-4 regardless of division) and the first round grows to seven games (because no Wild Card game and "death to small sample size randomness"). This series will feature two parts per team. One part will be the main concept, the one I'm most happy with presenting. The other will be an alternate take. These will explore past identities, shirk off brand equity, and present interesting fusions. I hope to you take you guys on a wild ride, so let's get started! TEAMS American League East Baltimore Orioles (Modern St. Louis Browns) Boston Red Sox (Forest Green + Red Sox) Carolina Pilots (Modern Seattle Pilots) Cleveland Indians (Cleveland Guardians) (Navy-Centric) (Guardians Update and Recolor) Detroit Tigers (Bengal-ized Tigers) New York Yankees (Dugout Script + Red Accent Yankees) Tampa Bay Stingrays (Tampa Bay Rays "of Light") Toronto Blue Jays (Salvaging the Black Jays) AL East Updates/AL West Teaser Dugout Jackets (Alternate Takes) American League West Anaheim Angels (Navy/Red Revival) Arizona Diamondbacks (Phoenix Snakes) (Snakes Update) Chicago White Sox (Greyscale goodness) Kansas City Royals (Royal Blue + Metallic Gold) (Minor Tweaks) Minnesota Twins (Forest Green + Light Blue and "Twin Cities") (New Road Alternate) Oakland Athletics (Oakland Oaks) Seattle Mariners (Royal/Yellow and Pt. I Update) (New Grey Base Color) Texas Rangers (Dallas Chaparrals) AL West Updates and NL East Teaser Dugout Jackets (Alternate Takes) National League East Atlanta Braves (Atlanta Firebirds) (Firebirds Update) Cincinnati Reds (Fancy Block, scripts, and black highlights) Miami Marlins (Updated) (Florida Flamingos) Montréal Expos (Updated) (Montréal Voyageurs) (White Pine Tweaks) New York Mets (Updated) (Black and Pink Windowpanes and Road Options) Philadelphia Phillies (Blue and Gold, a keystone, and William Penn) Pittsburgh Pirates (Updated) (Tuscan Font and Updated Pirate) Washington Nationals (Salvaging the Beveled Nats) NL East Updates and NL West Teaser Dugout Jackets (Alternate Takes) National League West Chicago Cubs (Gray Update) (1930's Modernization) Colorado Rockies (Updated) (Denver Zephyrs) Houston Astros (Updated) (1994-99 gradient) (Houston Railers) (Navy Nagareboshi) Los Angeles Dodgers (Los Angeles Angels) Milwaukee Brewers (Rescuing the Germanic Brewers) St. Louis Cardinals (Updated) (1956 Modernization) San Diego Padres (Surf's Up in Navy and Brown/Light Blue/Yellow) San Francisco Giants (San Francisco Seals) Dugout Jackets (Alternate Takes)
  8. Hi everyone, This is a series I've been wanting to start since last August. When Major League Baseball unveiled their Players Weekend jerseys and caps, the reaction was decidedly mixed. Some uniforms turned out pretty great, while others didn't make much sense. Many were put off by the use of bright neon colors that looked mismatched with the rest of some traditional teams' uniforms. Recently, I decided to try my hand at "fixing" these jerseys. Here are the rules I laid down for myself: - Stay faithful to each team's actual color palette, but use older team colors for diversity's sake - Caps with contrasting crowns and bills are allowed - Use the same block number style to unify the designs - Every team gets its name (not state/city) on their jersey Some teams will be vastly different, while others will only be slightly tweaked, but every team will be changed at least somewhat. Many thanks to @Carolingian Steamroller and @Victormrey for helping me out with this project. Let's start off with one of the more dramatically changed teams, the Arizona Diamondbacks: For the D-Backs, I decided to embrace the bright color aesthetic and go with a combination of their classic purple and their new, brighter teal/turquoise. I also paired the jersey with their throwback pinstriped pants. C&C appreciated! The Braves are up next.
  9. Hey everyone, With the regular season coming to a close and the playoffs gearing to start, I figured now would be a good time to post a project that I've been working on the past couple of months: an NFL Tweaks Series. This series will operate in a similar fashion to my original MLB Tweaks, with me only changing the elements of each team's identity that I find necessary. Here are some rules I went by that I figure you all should know going in: -This is an unpopular opinion, but I really do not like the use of gray facemasks on helmets, when that color cannot be found anywhere else in the identity. So you'll likely be seeing a lot of those go. -I decided to keep the idea of Color Rush uniforms, since the NFL is still technically employing it as a program. However, I decided to add a personal rule: that being the socks must always match the color of the helmet. For some teams, that leaves them with their completely monochrome looks, for others, it makes the use of entirely one color a bit less gaudy. -I'm also going to try to follow the one-helmet rule, as conceptually to maintain brand strength it's not a bad idea. -As with the MLB, the overall goal was to modernize the looks of the NFL in a clean, classic way. -Some big inspirations that I can think off throughout the making of this were Jesse Alkire's NFL series as well as @bkknight95's series, so a lot of credit goes to both of them. -I'll be posting in alphabetical order, two teams at a time. Hopefully I'll be able to have all the teams posted before the Super Bowl. So the first teams up are two that have been stuck in the early 2000's piping trend for quite a while now, the Cardinals and the Falcons. First up being the Arizona Cardinals! Logos -The primary & helmet logo stays the same, the cardinal head is a great logo. -All of the copper elements have to do with Color Rush, as you'll see in the uniforms... Uniforms -Right off the bat, it's clear that the Arizona flag was a huge inspiration in the design, with the sunrise pattern occupying the sleeve caps and the pants stripe. It also sort of has the effect of feathers, while also mimicking the multiple stripes on some of the Cardinals' inaugural uniforms. -I decided to go with sharper, more angular numbers in order to mimic the claws of a bird. -Although the primary home and away sets are the combinations shown above, the Cardinals could also wear the red pants occasionally on the road, and vice versa. -I'm not really big on the Cardinals having a black alternate, but I figured it looked "cool" with the added red & yellow. This alternate would only be used at most once a year. -The Color Rush set embraces a color that only Arizona could own: a nice shade of copper, as seen on the flag. I know it might look a little out there, but for me at least it was better than black, and embraced the entire state. Next up, here are the Atlanta Falcons! Logos -I decided to take silver out of the color scheme, and just focus on black and a bright scarlet red. The primary loses some cluttered outlines, and the helmet becomes red, as I'll explain more in the uniform section. Uniforms -I decided to go with the red helmet for the Falcons since it helps them stand out more in a division filled with black. I also think it goes better with both the red primary and black alternate jersey. -I went with a number font based on the current wordmark font, much like many Falcons concepts do. -For the striping pattern, I went with one that mimics the feather angles of the primary logo but also has some precedence in Atlanta's early history. This allows the uniform to be sharp & modern while still rooted in tradition. -For the Color Rush, I went all-red but with black numbers in order to sort of dull down all the bright red present. The striping is also slightly recolored. That's what I've got for the moment, I hope you guys are looking forward to this and I'd love to hear what you think.
  10. In this series, I am going to tweak or redesign all 90 teams throughout the MLB, AAA, and AA. For the most part I want to maintain every team's color and identity but may change a few. There are only a few guidlines in this series. 1. Every team will have a white home and grey away with or without alternates 2.Minor league teams will use hand-me-down batting practice uniforms 3. Teams can mix and match hats and jerseys Arizona Diamondbacks Reno Aces Jackson Generals Atlanta Braves Gwinnett Braves Mississippi Braves Baltimore Orioles Norfolk Tides Bowie Baysox Boston Red Sox Pawtucket Red Sox Portland Sea Dogs Chicago Cubs Iowa Cubs Tennessee Smokies Chicago White Sox Charlotte Knights Birmingham Barons Cincinnati Reds Louisville Bats Pensacola Blue Wahoos Cleveland Indians Columbus Clippers Akron Rubberducks Colorado Rockies Albuquerque Isotopes Hartford Yard Goats Detroit Tigers (*BONUS*)(Final) Toledo Mud Hens Erie SeaWolves Houston Astros Fresno Grizzlies Corpus Christi Hooks Kansas City Royals Omaha Storm Chasers Northwest Arkansas Naturals Anaheim Angels Salt Lake Bees Mobile BayBears Los Angeles Dodgers First up is the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. Their new re-brand was a little off target so I kept a single color scheme the sedona red and sand, because in my opinion, it is stronger than their purple, teal, copper, and black. I returned them to a little more traditional uniform using the old snake pattern they used in their purple days. I like their new darker grey but it looks too dark on the field so I lightened it a bit Snake logo is used on the sleeve. I made my own BP template so it uses the snake d and has contrasting sleeves as you will see throughout this series. I'll post their AAA affiliate the Reno Aces after comments on the Diamondbacks.
  11. Hey all, Found a tweak that I wanted to share. It looks like they started by using another member's tweak: and then proceeded to add a limbless body to it and use it on a product they sell: Hopefully user "suplauren" got some compensation! Or the Arizona Coyotes for that matter!
  12. I presume this is already being discussed in a mega thread, but it's worth a conversation on its own: the Trail Blazers unveiled new logos yesterday. The article on NBA.com includes this delightful animation of their logo history: I like the update a lot: farewell ugly rhombus; good riddance pointless spiky things. But this doesn't actually fix the main problem I have with the logo, which is that it isn't a P yet could so easily be. I know, it's a B for Blazers, but city initials are always better than nickname initials. Besides, the NBA is even using the pinwheel as a P in an ad running across the top of the page: What is that supposed to be? "bresented by Moda"? "qresented by Moda"? Flip the pinwheel around, and it would be so much better.
