Pittsburgh Steelers Nike Tweaks/ Alternate Ideas

Recommended Posts

This is the latest version of a reoccurring concept of mine to "modernize" the Steelers' uniforms. In this version, the helmet is matte and the facemask has been changed to a "steel" color, which is also used on the alternates. On the home jersey, the number font has been changed and the stripes now fit fully on the sleeves. On the away jersey, the entire shoulder cap is turned black to keep the shoulder stripes clean and consistent.

I have two alternate ideas, both of which are merely concepts as they would require the NFL to change its rule on alternate helmets. One is a yellow jersey with a yellow helmet and steel sleeve caps and pants. The other is an all-steel alternate. The yellow and steel helmets (which would both be matte) have a chrome logo on the "blank" side.

This is absolutely great! You stuck to tradition while modernizing the look, and it is phenomenal.

The new font is definitely a better looking for the Steelers, and I like that the full stripes are back. I really like how you have the logo on the opposite side of the yellow and gray helmets also. My only suggestion would be to swap the facemask colors of the gray and black helmets so they match the shell. Nice job.

You should make a black and yellow striped jersey (like the one they have now) as another alternate with the grey pants and black helmet.

I would thicken the helmet stripes, but these are really good. They have a collegiate feel and I don't think the alternates really fit the Steelers tradition, but they look sharp. The new number font looks good and the chrome logos on the blank side is a great idea (even if it doesn't fit their history). One last thing, I don't really like the number outline on the gray alternate; I think it looks odd/busy with the stencil font you are using.

Not a fan of the number font. Otherwise great job!

I like the concept if the Steelers were to change their looks. With that being said, there are a handful of teams who likely will never change and Steelers are one of them.
