My Minnesota Vikings concept


Avenger

Recommended Posts

***EDITED CONCEPT ON PAGE TWO***

I got super inspired by the new Cardinals mark. I was amazed how effective a simple modernization could be. So I decided to apply it here on the Vikings. One thing I wanted to do was eliminate black from the logo... It just didn't fit without looking cartoony to me. Instead, I used a two-tone purple scheme, and I really like the results.

What do you guys think?

The pants would be interchangable (though the all purple set would be used rarely), and I picture the dark purple having a specular finish to it, similar to the Giant's blue.

I really like this. retains the old, but definitely feels like a much more modern logo. I think the purple pants and jersey need to have some more white in them somewhere, maybe in the striping.

I wonder what the viking would look like if someone were to change the facial hair, either clean-shaven or with a full-beard?

Not a fan of the porn mustache? :P

I kinda feel you on the purple pants... the main thing that I wanted was a connection between the jerseys and the pants. I'm using the lighter purple piping on both sets to try to maintain continuity.

I definitely think it looks better. I like how it is more streamlined. Definitely fits in the "upgrade" category of seahawks, cards, dolphins, etc. I also like how you incorporated the purples, and kept the horns on the warrior and on the helmet consistent with the yellow highlights. My only problem is the angle at which the viking is placed...maybe don't tilt him as much, so he doesn't look like he is peering downward. I understand the idea behind it, but I wonder what it would look like not so tilted. Other than that I think it is a great job! You beat me to this, by the way; I was thinking of doing the same type of update for the vikes too! :)

(By the way, all this upgrading reminds me of the UConn Huskies and Wisonsin Badgers upgrades that Rickabaugh Graphics came up with a while ago...good stuff)

Good job, man :)

I didn't like the light purple accent at first, but I changed my mind once I saw it on the jerseys. Nice touch. Something about the numbers on the front of the jerseys bothers me. Maybe make them a little bigger? I think I might like the roadies better if they had white on the sleeves to make it more like the current shoulder stripes on the away jersey.

I realy dig these. Very sharp.

I've messed around a lot with using more white on the away jersey... and I just can't get it to work.

If I make the side panels/sleeves white on it, then make the shoulder insert purple, I'm stuck with the piping... especially in relation to the purple pants. The yellow is hard to see, the light purple looks really soft, and the dark purple looks too monochromatic.

Plus, I really like how I have the away jersey currently. I like that it can be used with both sets of pants, and I like how the yellow pops out of the purple.

Here's what I would TRY concerning white...

Inside the light purple piping on the pants and the jersey (both sets) run a thin white stripe (it would run right next to the yellow slash). That could work.

Should that not work, try moving the light purple pipe in where I said the white should go, and put the white where the light purple is now.

If that doesn't work, maybe focus on trying to add yellow in instead of white and try the two above ideas with yellow replacing white.

You may decide what you have now looks better, but I'd give those a shot.

The logo and the uniforms are pretty awesome as they are though.

I love how you just "souped up" the old logo too. Nice Job. I love the jerseys. I'm wondering what the purple one would look like with yellow striping down the sides.?

And Im wondering what a yellow jersey w/purple trim would looklike.?.?

I love this. Everythings awesome except the helmet. I think it looks better simpler, but if you tweaked that this would be solid. Very nice modernization

I agree with this assessment. Love the unis, logos, etc. The helmet not so much.

Great work, though.

One more thing from me...

Have you thought about making the helmet on the Viking logo purple to consistify it with the uniform logo? Also, on that same note, I'm not sure the yellow ring on the helmet logo is necessary. I might even drop the light purple outline on the helmet. The outline makes it seems to much like a mark as opposed to a horn that is supposed to look like it is coming off the helmet.
