Arizona Cardinals 4.0

At the risk of overdoing it: I sketched up yet another version of Arizona. This one is really more of a "tweak" than a "concept"; something closer to what they have now, with some of the rough edges cleaned up. Used a different number font, placed the Arizona state flag logo on the sleeves, and introduced a 2nd alternate look which uses desert sand as the base color and the Arizona state colors for the numbers and accents. All the current sleeve + side stripes from the Reebok era are dropped.

Atlanta Falcons 2.0

Playing off the Falcon's excellent throwback uniforms, I made my own "modern throwback" set that blends their classic design with some modern elements. I also threw in a new Color Rush design that use a different font and more aggressive design features to round out the set.

Hey ya'll, 

So I started this project back in the spring (when quarantine hit), not intending for this to be anything serious. This was just something fun do from home while everything was locked down.  But over the course of this year, I've been steadily knocking out 2-3 sets per week in my free time... And lo and behold, I've finally gotten through all 32 teams!

Disclaimer: I'm by no means a "pro user"; I drew all these up using MS Paint, so obviously the level of detail isn't nearly what it could be. I'm just comfortable with Paint and it's good enough to get the job done. 


A couple notes:

 

  1. I drew these sets up assuming there were no limiting factors (i.e. " the one helmet rule") that would affect uniform design. Teams can have as many different helmet/uniform combos as they want.
  2. Every team will have at least 4 different uniform combinations: a Home set, a Road set, an Alternate set, and a Throwback set. Some will have more, some will have less. I also won't show every possible combination, just some of the ones that look best together.
  3. I didn't just change things for the sake of changing them; if a team already has a good design, then I most likely didn't make any major changes.

 

With that said, I'll start things out in the AFC East and work my way west. Comments/feedback welcome!

I love this thread, but I do have one major question: why are there no  NFL logos on the back of the helmets and on the neck inserts?

Jacksonville Jaguars 2.0

 

Building on my original Jags concept, but cleaning up/simplifying the look a bit + upgrading to the Vapor Fusion template. You could consider these a "modern throwback" of sorts. I think these hit the sweet spot between being interesting and unique, without being overly generic like the current-gen design.

LOVE IT! I definitely wish the Jacksonville Jaguars would change their primary colors to teal & gold & reincorporate gold into their uniforms.

Honest answer - I was too lazy to add them originally, and once I got going I never bothered to go back and add them. Also, the uniform template could change in the future and the NFL logos would be in different places. 

But either way, it's an easy fix so I'll probably add them in eventually.

Thanks man! And yeah, I totally agree. The Jags current unis are painfully boring.

Green Bay Packers 3.0

Still reeling from my Packers' annual postseason choke job (2010 season notwithstanding), I thought I'd give them some love by revisiting my original Packers concept. With the vast majority of NFL teams now on the Nike Vapor Untouchable template (with the newer Vapor Fusion now an option as well) the Packers remain stuck on the same old Reebok-era design.

 

In this version, Green Bay gets up to speed with an updated look, utilizing a more traditional 5-stripe pattern on the sleeves and a "Titletown USA" wordmark inside the neckline.

 

With any luck,  maybe Green Bay can go the route of the Bucs a year ago, winning the Super Bowl the same year after overhauling their uniforms (a guy can dream, right?)

Houston Texans v2.0 (aka, Houston Oilers reborn)

It's funny...much like the Cubs, even though red was always part of their scheme, the Oilers would not have looked nearly as good in red as the Texans do.

Washington Commanders

Jumping on the bandwagon, here's my update to the underwhelming Washington Commanders rebrand. As far as I can tell, here's my summary of their new look:

 

The Good - They kept the excellent burgundy and gold colors. The 3 stars inside the collars was a nice touch, and the matte burgundy helmets look pretty clean.

 

The Bad - Basically everything else. Overall, a definite downgrade from their previous look. 

 

In the version, I basically did a modern take on their classic look. Helmet get the Northwestern stripe treatment (which was really the best part of the Skins/Football Team uniform IMO,  no idea why they ever went away from that). Gold TV numbers replace the "W" on the helmets. Numbers go back to the classic block letter style. Pants get some striping to match the jerseys, while the sleeves also get 3 stars above the stripes to mimic the DC flag. Secondary logo is moved from the back neckline to the shoulders to help fill out that blank space.  Finally, a gold alternate jersey replaces the all-black look, and burgundy pants are brought back back into the mix.

 

I also introduced a 2nd "faux-back" alternate which uses the old-school dark burgundy and gold colors, but with some modern twists. Golden military-style embellishments,  aka Scrambled eggs ,  are used on the jerseys to play up the Commanders motif. The helmet also uses a new shield logo I created based on the Washington coat of arms

I like the shield on the last alt, but the numbers on helmets isn't a good look in my opinion. The W logo is ok and better than just slapping numbers on.

To each their own. It definitely works with the W as well, it was just my personal preference to go w/ the helmet numbers since not many teams do that anymore.

The military embellishments on the collar for the 4th jersey is really nice, and I am loving that fauxback logo on that jersey as well. Really great concept. I also love the mustard yellow jersey - something I think Washington really needs to capitalize on IRL.
