Recommended Posts

Hey guys. With Seattle getting an XFL team in a few months (as I post this!) and an NHL team in 2021, respectively, it has made me think this: What if, during the CFL's sojourn in the United States from 1993 to 1995, people in Seattle wanted a football alternative to the (then-mediocre) Seattle Seahawks? Well, if you've ever wondered, here is a CFL team for Seattle: The Seattle Aviators. This is my uniform concept, notice the blue and yellow color scheme. :D

What do you guys think? Hope ya like it.

The proportions and placement of the plane and the S are such that the appearance of each is muddled.

I think what would have been cool is that the Aviators, if they were real, would that they would've have an instant rivalry with the B.C. Lions.

The look fits in well with Canadian football.  Reminds me of and looks similar to the Canadian junior football powerhouse Saskatoon Hilltops.  They were wearing the blue jersey and yellow pants back in those days.

Hey, I re-did the logo. The plane is now smaller:

Q to you all: How big should the plane be?

More importantly, get a different font for your S. The diagonal crossbar is conflicting with all the perpendiculars of the plane. Find an S with a horizontal crossbar. Then, fit the plane so that the wings terminate about halfway into each bowl of the S.

I like the idea, but the colours are way to similar to the Blue Bombers, even if they used a different shade of blue (Which they have changed at times over the years)

Now if it was a dark purple & yellow--maybe.

Increase the plane by 50%, the left wing should touch the inside border upper part of the S. And right wing should touch the inside border lower part of the S. We're talking portions here, you want the plane superimposed on the S but not totally blocking it, like it is in the first drawing.
