My Chicago Bears Re-design


DRutka

Recommended Posts

All of the traditionalists will not like this, but that?s OK. The thing that has always bugged me about the Bears is that they don?t use a bear on their helmet and their colors do not represent a bear. I searched and found what I thought was the best ?bear? logos used in sports and incorporated them into this theme. Also the use of brown represents a ?bear? much better.

Let me know what you think?

I love what uve done here, but my suggested tweak would be replace the tan color ur using with the burnt orange color that is in the current logo, then use the actual "C" logo on the helmets, the bears on the sleeves and DO NOT FORGET the GHS somewhere on the uniform, preferably on the striping. Just my advice, take or leave it. Good work regardless.

Pretty cool idea, but i think it would look tons better with their current colors (orange and navy blue.) Also, Baylor's wordmark is disgusting IMO. Highly unprofessional. Looks like a little kid did it. you'd be better off coming up with your own wordmark dude. Good job on the unis, just original bears colors would work a lot better.

prologo, he didnt 'stylize' the bear. It says right there that its the Drew University Bears logo, just recolored.

Really nice work, especialy on the logo re-colors!

My one issue is the two-tone brown. I'm not a fan of it, but it works on the home and away jersey. But then when it comes to the alt, I think of how it'd look on the field... *shudder* I think the concept is nice enough that it doesn't even really need the alt. It's brown-overkill for me.

no, no, no. im sorry, it just looks to much like the browns. the colours dont have to represent bears. how many green eagles are there. or blue maple leafs. or jaguars with teal tounges. the navy and orange they use now work just fine. i do agree with u that the bears need to have a bear on the helmet though. this is the logo they need to use:

Icecap, that's the old logo. To me, that one looks fat, not unlike the Superfans! :) When I see that logo I think of Jim Harbaugh and Neil Anderson.

I appreciate the effort Drutka. It looks like by the shaprness of the results that you know your way around illustrator. You should try a custom logo.

I'm against changing the bears in any way. But the uniform concept is good. I also like your choice of numbers! My old number from HS and college!

Looks great but I think the script on the sleeve needs to go. And I also think you should seperate the sleeve from the torso by putting some piping. And the black jerseys should have some different colored sleeves w/ piping too.

I reversed the main helmet so you now can see both sides of it. I also added the GSH on the front instead of on the sleeve.

A couple points about your replies:

- My goal here was to make it totally different from what they currently use. Therefore, the colors and logos are different.

- As far as making my own logos; I am just starting to get into using Illustrator, I?m learning this thing by myself. As you can see, I have edited the template somewhat to make the shoulders alike on both sides. Also, I am just learning how to vectorize a logo. When I get into it more, I will try some of my own.

- Thanks for all of your positive feedback on this and my Bills one. As far as the Bears one goes, I thought I would have been lambasted for changing such a classic uniform.

This is very cool, but because the Bears are a longtime franchise in the league, I think a nod to their heritage is important. Perhaps using their existing colors and somehow incorporating the "C" on the sleeves instead of the wordmark. I do like the helmet graphic though.
