Indianapolis Colts Concept

Recommended Posts

The Colts' logo is clean, and has held up to the test of time. The only change to be made, as I see it (and I'm surprised STL didn't beat me to it) is to change the helmet stripe from a single stripe to a double stripe, to match the shoulders of the jerseys.

Your change isn't bad, but it does look more like the Cowboys than the Colts. The Colts' blue-and-white is, in these days of wilder colour combinations, what makes the Colts unique in the NFL.

The Broncos, Eagles, and Rams (note the lack of apostrophes when pluralizing those words) make significant changes to their logos, rather than just adding an outline. All three of them made changes for the better by leaps and bounds, though I did always like the "Orange Crush" jerseys (I even own one).

I didn't beat you, but I will agree.

Except, that's no longer the only change. They need to go back to a blue facemask or make it a white facemask.

Grey has no part in their color scheme and therefore shouldn't be the color of their facemask. If they wanted to put some grey back into the uniforms, then they might be able to make the grey mask work, but I think they'd end up messing up the rest of the uniform.

Moral of the story: Make the stripe a double, and turn grey to blue, and you might as well call them perfect.

Hold a minute, is this forum stuck in the 60's. Please tell me why you think the Colts' logo is near perfect. If the Colts logo is near perfect, the bring back the old Bronco's, Ram's and Eagle's.

i for one am not stuck in the 60's. i believe in progression not being stuck in amber. no uniform is untouchable to me.

with that said, i like the concept. the black isn't needed.

i have a logo concept, that is sorta similar but i put a silver/grey border around the logo and darkened the blue.

in all fairness, i never said the colts LOGO was near perfect...... even though it is timeless and effective.

and again, in all fairness, you didn't really change the logo for your concept. just added some outlines to it.

so if you're going to bash the colts logo, and say that it's stuck in the 60's (and so are we?), maybe you should make them a new one in your concept, instead of just change the colors of it? :)

although the horse shoe IS timeless and classic... apparently, it's not so "lucky" for Peyton and co.... so, I propose that they leave history behind... and go w/ an actual COLT , a simple silouhette ... charging.

speaking of which... where's my mastercard ? "lucky" horshoe definitely works for me here :P

so i suppose it's time to change the yankees uniforms too, since they lost to the red sox? must not have been too lucky for them last year...

hell, by that statement, we should see about 31 new NFL logos per year, eh? :)

they would never do that due to the superstition that goes with the horseshoe. If it the open end faces any way but up, it's said that the luck will spill out. Sure it would look interesting as a secondary with the olts after it which i saw somewhere that someone did as a concept, but as superstitious as people are it would never fly
