Baltimore Ravens - Proposed Pewter Helmet


TruColor

Recommended Posts

Back in the days prior to the Ravens' unveiling of their logo and uniforms, there was an article somewhere that's now lost to me that mentioned that they were looking at possibly incorporating Pewter helmets into their look. This was prior to the Buccaneers changing their color scheme - makes me think that NFL Properties was trying to get this color into SOMEBODY's color scheme.

I've been playing around with what this could've looked like...however, the actual Pewter used by the Bucs looks absolutely AWFUL with Black, Purple and Metallic Gold, so I went with a Dark Silver. Actually, the Dark Silver used by the New Jersey Nets:

What 'cha think?

I think that we need to see a lot more of your concepts, PANTONE.

Well, my concepts usually consist of taking existing material, quickly slapping them together and recoloring.

One of these days, I really need to learn how to use Illustrator...don't be fooled, I'm pretty clueless.

This is really interesting.

At first, I balked, but the more I look at it, the more I like what the light pewter/silver color does in terms of showing off the purple stripes (which, for all intents and purposes, just don't exist on their current black).

And that logo (along with the purple on it) stands out much more to my eye with the white on the pewter than on black.

Wonder how their current logo would look? :D

As always, thanks for bringing an interesting idea to the community!

Here's one (the Dark Silver), with the new logo:

I had to add the White stroke around the logo in order to make it stand out more. This is also true for the old logo - without the White, the logo gets lost against the background.

Wow. Not at all what had envisioned! This makes their current logo much more palatable.

For my viewing pleasure, that's a heck of a lot more interesting than what they're currently sportin'! And I dig the white stroke around it.

Thanks for doing this so quickly. :notworthy:

...and for fun, I put this blast-from-the-past on it:

This is the old secondary logo they used as a temporary logo until they came up with the current mark.

Wow.

:wacko:

As much as I don't care for their current logo, this one makes it look great!

Yeah, i agree with the previous caller who mentioned that this is one team that can legitimately use a lot of black. Ravens ARE black, so the black works for them. I don't think the pewter is right for them.

Wow. That secondary logo makes the helmet look sweet. You'd have to re-do the unis though. I don't think the current jerseys and the pewter lids would go well together.

That's my favorite by far. Purple is a good accent on that helmet.
