Falcons New Unis 2020

Recommended Posts

I know it might be amateurish, but what would a red falcon with white outline be like on the helmet? It might add some much-needed color back to the helmet.

Quick Photoshop mockup I did, initially based on @RedRenesis's comment about removing the inner stripes, but the resulting shape looks very strange so I played around with it. Might develop it further tonight or tomorrow.

This needs sharpening. The angles/points of the interior aren't the same as the rounded edges of the keyline. This makes it look blobby to me.  The white outline may not be needed in which case the keyline issue is likely lessened.

I’ve hated the falcon logo since they came out with the modern version! It looks ridiculous! I would hope they either go to the original one or step back from the 90’s 00’s overly cartoonishly ugly logo!

BAM! Forward motion old logo! Take that A off and let’s roll! 

Sorry, but no. That's much too archaic for a team playing in 2020. It's so easy to go back to the past. The current logo is more than fine. It looks good on a helmet, jersey, and merchandise. They don't create logos so the design community can approve of every single aspect.

Yes that's because I made it in 15 minutes in Photoshop. I'll see if I can stop mass-production at Nike, but it might be too late at this point.

Sorry you took it personally.

I had a similar idea of mixing the old and new and simplifying. In addition I'd love to see it look more like an actual falcon and less like a falcon being forced into an F. Still have the F form but just don't need it to be so distracting.

Sometimes that's exactly what's needed.

Well since everybody else is jumping off the bridge with their fixed versions of the Falcons logo...

You want an alternate "F" logo, one that might work as a bird? Subaru has you covered:

The JDM Forester badge works well for this. Build it up into a more bird-like figure and you're set for an alternate or primary.

I think that one on the right is the winner.

The talon/claw is too thick.  I prefer the revision made by @hawk36

 

Regardless, it still has the problem of NOT being an F on one side of the helmet.

Looking like an F shouldn't be a requirement.  As much as I love the OG logo, I never thought it looked much like an F, even when told it did.  Letter logos that aren't symmetrical are tough to work with and should be avoided anyway.  Even the Bears helmet looks a little odd to me when looking at the left-facing view.  I like my football helmet logos to be mirror images of each other when possible.

I think that version @hawk36 made has the talon too small it'll get lost at a distance and at small replicas, I think the thicker one is the way to go, whether or not it's more accurate

The thicker talon has been one of my biggest gripes with the logo; it has always looked terribly swollen and unnatural, and also (I believe) lends to an illusion that the falcon’s wings are too small due to its proportions looking off. 
 

Yes, the mockup in question’s talon does appear very small, but that doesn’t mean the swollen talon should stay. There can certainly be a middle-ground talon size somewhere, and that’s the one that should be pursued.

Regardless, it finally has the solution of NOT being an F on one side of the helmet.

FIFY

That's why it never should've been considered an "F".. 

It's a perfectly fine falcon logo facing left or right.. forcing it into a letter concept is silly and 50% inaccurate
