Philadelphia Phillies Concept


Anomalied

Recommended Posts

Good concept overall, but it just doesn't stand out. However, I love that Alternate!

I just think the current P is much better (especially with the star on each side of it). I have always liked the maroon, that made them unique. The stars in place of the dots on the "i" and the use of blue are what make the current set stand out as well.

It's a good, basic concept. I like the use of maroon. It's quite the unique color in the MLB. However, the uniform is also very bland and it lacks creativity. The color just sits there like, "Okay, I'm maroon... Now what?" What if you brought in an accent color to make the maroon pop? I would try a silver or even an old gold.

Make it the same P on the cap as it is in the wordmark. Then get Philadelphia on the roads. Then ditch the white around the stripes on the greys, and this is perfection.

Nice work.

[beating a dead horse] trying to force old logos and modern logos to co-exsist onto one concept never works. why does everyone still do it though? [/beating a dead horse]

ICS beat me to it, but this is another example of what is well on its way to being a Golden Rule:

THOU SHALT NOT MIX & MATCH LOGOS FROM DIFFERENT ERAS.

The cap "P" does not look like the jersey "P". The cap "P" also had a custom-designed script that went with it. The present wordmark has a "P" that is meant to go with it. They were never intended to be seen together, because they don't look good together.

The Phillies have worn red since 1883, save 1942 and the Maroon Years. Why should they give up their colors? And what is wrong with American teams choosing to wear red, white and blue?

And for the record, milton/lumberg, the Pirates and Giants went with a comprehensive throwback look. They didn't mix and match anything. So you missed ICS's point. If the Pirates were guilty of what you accused them of, they'd be wearing gold pillbox hats from the '70s with the vests from the '60s and the script "Pittsburgh" from the '80s. THAT is mixing eras. What they did is faithfully try to re-introduce a classic look from the same era.

I like the use of maroon/cranberry, whatever you wanna call the color. The only thing that kind of bothers me is the use of the old "P" with the current script for the rest of the word. I'd say pick one style...personally, I'd go with the font they used when they actually wore cranberry. It stands out as a font, many teams have script. I'm not knocking script or anything, because I love jerseys that use it. I'm just a fan of the font used when the Phightin's used that "P".

i really wish they would go back to the maroon. like you said too many teams have red as well as too many teams have navy. i got bored at work one day(lids) and counted all the Navy hats that the MLB wears it came out to 30 some(including each teams alternate hats) out of 60 some hats were blue of some sort and the other were mainly red with a few other colors in the mix

Welcome to :flagusa: . Home of the Red, White and Blue. Wouldn't you think that American teams would prefer to wear the national colors when they take the field, all other things being equal?
