Brave Bird Creative's NFL, Re-Imagined

 

Hello CCSLC'ers. I want to welcome you back into the fold of my NFL project that I've been working on, honestly on and off over the last several years. Instead of just tossing concepts onto the boards in image links, I wanted to take the opportunity to use the correct platforms to unveil an entire project as I ramp up an individual portfolio. Since being gracefully laid off due to the pandemic, I have had a lot of time on my hands to refresh and refine some ideas and get the creative juices flowing. This NFL project will incorporate a flow of images for each team that express the concept is genuinely as possible. This post will serve as an index for the concepts in this thread. I've got half the league finished as of today and plan to unveil at least a concept a day until kickoff of the new season. Let's get started! 

 

AFC NORTH

Bengals | Browns | Ravens | Steelers

 

AFC EAST 

Bills | Dolphins | Jets | Patriots 

 

AFC SOUTH

Colts | Jaguars | Texans | Titans

 

AFC WEST 

Broncos | Chargers | Chiefs | Raiders

 

NFC NORTH 

Bears | Lions | Packers | Vikings

 

NFC EAST

Cowboys | Eagles | Giants | Washington

 

NFC South

Buccaneers | Falcons | Panthers | Saints

 

NFC West 

49ers | Cardinals | Rams | Seahawks

I quite like the sleeve designs, but the numbers feel really awkward. I think I get where you going with them but they are just to much, IMO. I think the design works better in the Pants stripe than the numbers. Overall pretty good. Excited to see the rest of the series

Love the presentation. Uniforms look great too, this got me real excited for the rest of the series. I would maybe add more purple to the alt, it seems a little to close to the saints all black home set color wise

I feel the purple is too dark. Functionally it's not far from black, so it doesn't stand out. The wings on the sleeves don't work because of that, I think.

I think the font here is great! totally suits the Ravens.

For the uniform design, I think it's got a lot of nice ideas. The helmet is great; with the deep purple the glow is restrained enough to work (unlike Jacksonville's old helmet.) The Maryland flag touches are solid.

 

However, here are some recolorations that would improve this, IMO.

 

For one, I think the shoulder numbers should match the front/back number, so no outline "ghosted" numbers. Also maybe try gold numbers on the home jersey, with the NoB in white instead... Not sure.

 

Most importantly, the wing. The idea and the design are great, but the yellow-heavy colors aren't working for me. I'd go with purple or flat black inside, keep the iridescent black, and go with a thin yellow outline and drop shadow (so that the feathers have thicker yellow next to them.) Also, regardless of the colors, I'd ditch the sleeve cap purple fill on the away, and maybe add it to the alt.

 

Overall, still a nice upgrade to the Ravens' look!

I like this too but I would make the purple darker and maybe make the black greyish to match the gothic feel.... like what the NY Guardians did.

Thanks so much for the input! Also, I am making some adjustments to the uniform graphics to make them less cluttered and larger. If you come here in the next few moments and see any broken links, don't worry, updates getting pasted back into the post. Thanks for the patience.

 

EDIT: Those updates have been made.

I'm glad you went with something outside the norm for the Pack. I'm usually anti-numbers on one side of the helmet, but using the circled numbers from previous uniforms is great. I'm a bit against full time blue instead of yellow because of the Bears, but this is a good look.

Love this look as a throwback, but the green and gold has been around for so long it feels sacrilegious to steer away from it. This set would look amazing in green and gold. Bringing back the kelly green would also be awesome. Looking forward to the rest of the series!

Haha, I appreciate the feedback! Maybe I'll play around with it in green. But I will say, I am making a point to be sacrilegious with this project. A lot of the traditional uniforms will get shaken up, simply because I have noticed from years of skimming these boards that many of the NFL concepts (or concepts in general) are tweaks that, while they look nice 9 times out of 10, become redundant. Believe me, if I was in charge of the Packers in real life I would not go in this direction!

It's a great concept, traditional and clean, as strange as it is to look at 🤣. Excited to see what you do with the traditional teams, especially my cowboys

Keep the primary blue uniform, as an alternate that recognizes the Lambeau years.  But just make a green version of that and the road uniform as your primary uniforms for the Packers.  I love what you've done here, but Packers-Bears never looks right when the Packers wear navy.

On that note, frankly, you could do away with the G for this.  Normally I would think of that as blasphemous, but the way you excecuted those number circles on the helmet just "works" and feels quintessentially Packers.  Doing it in green, but making the number circles the focus would be an awesome way to blend the Lambeau and Lombardi years.

I know I may sound--in your words, sacrilegious--but why not try a dark teal, midnight blue hybrid(Think Eagles blue/green)? 

Oddly enough, the Pack apparently did wear a bluish green for a few years in the 50s, so it wouldn't be completely uncharted territory.

I can dig this; however, I feel like rounding out the yokes on the shoulders and making the collar the same color to go full 30s-40s would look a tad better.

 

As I adjust my glasses, I do have some problems with your abridged history of the Packers.  The Packers weren't a charter NFL club; they joined in 1921, the APFA's second season.  Also, the Packers have 13 league championships; 15 comes from counting both the NFL Championships and AFL-NFL World Championships in the 1966 and 1967 seasons which is redundant and inaccurate because the AFL-NFL World Championship was essentially a post-season exhibition game before it was firmly called the Super Bowl and represented the NFL championship after the NFL and AFL merged in 1970.
