MAC concept football helmets

Recommended Posts

I have been looking at doing concept football helmets for some of the Mid-American Conference (MAC) teams.  A lot of family and friends, including myself, went to MAC schools.  I have a few concepts done.

 

First up:

Bowling Green State University

Nickname:  Falcons

Colors:  Orange and Brown

 

Note:  There are a lot of bird logos.  Tried to do something different.

 

Current and past helmets and logos:

That's a bad-ass logo. Can I see it on its own?

Nice Work. Would like to see the same helmet logo reduced so that no part of the logo goes over the earhole. Nike Revolution helmets make it tough to position helmet stickers. Too many holes to work around. Maybe try a White, Orange, or Brown facemask.

I would hope that you are going to redesign each school! :)

I would take all your design elements and move them up the helmet. Between the ear hole, the facemask, and the chin strap, you are going to lose a lot of detail.

I was trying to do a better version of a 1980 BG helmet and merged it with some clip art that I altered to make the ideas work.  It is too similar.  I’ll have to rework it.  I’ve never heard of Duchess Community College.

Kent State University 
Nickname:  Golden Flashes
Colors: Navy Blue and Gold

 

Note:  I’m a Kent alumnus and have previously posted several Kent helmet designs.  This is a revised previously posted design.  Added an existing May 4th (May 4, 1970) logo as a front bumper decal.  

 

Alternate Note:  This is based off a motorcycle helmet.

My guess is that Duchess Community College is just using whatever clipart you based your concept on as their athletics logo.

Can’t wait for Central Michigan!

Hopefully I’ll get there! I have a Miami one about ready to post next.

Miami University
Nickname:  RedHawks
Colors: Red and White

 

Note:  I kept this one simple.  They’re the RedHawks, formerly the redskins, so I went all red. Added the 1809 Est. date on the front bumper.  Should have done the same for Ohio U. (Est. 1804).  Both schools are older than most of our states.
