Recommended Posts

bit of bandwagon jumping here.

everyones been doing it and i had a couple of hours to while away today.

so here is my attempt at a bills concept.

and yes, i have come to the conclusion that the bills are hard.

jesus i tried to get the silver in there. i tried to use both blues also.

nothing looked great and nothing does now either but i got fed up and

thought id post it.

sorry bills fans, im not from your shores so i have no sense of bills uniform protocol or historicity.

be kind, i know not what i do.

What do the rest of the numbers look like? Could you make an example using 32 instead of 18? IMO the 2s and 3s are generally the more distinct numbers of any custom font, while 1 and 8 are a little less distinct.

Also, try either red socks with the blue pants, or white socks with some kind of stripe. Even white with a really thick blue stripe would work - just get a little white between the sock color and the pants.

I like it overall. The pant striping is an outside-the-box approach. I don't recall anyone using the number treatment you used on a previous Bills concept. The logo has energy yet still is recognizable as the Bills. I liked the use of nickel in the current set, but going without is OK too. Your concept is another that shows the white helmet works better than the red.

I approve.

I really like the striping. Nice balance between traditional and modern. I think I would prefer a red helmet, but either one would be nice.

My complaints are ones that most people on this board will probably share.

1) Gray facemask. Looks terribly out of place here. There's no reason for it.

2) Socks matching pants. Why not red socks with the blue pants?

As much as I hate the Bills, and trust me, I hate the Bills - this is a nice update. This is how they should use the blues instead of the erratic, useless and all - around ugly way they currently do. Very nice update of the logo, also.

I think the white helmet would be perfect with a blue facemask. The stripes are very cool. ( I can see three or four other teams immediately copying this style).

Red socks with all variations would look very nice. The wordmark is a little weak, but not horrible.

Overall, I'd say a very good job considering how much I hate the Bills.

I'm very impressed. The charging buffalo's makeover looks great and so does the rest of the uniform. But as always, there are a few details that could use some adjustments so here are my 2¢.

- I don't like the 3-layer numbers on either jersey, especially the white one. Red and light blue should suffice.

- The grey facemask needs to go. It needs to be blue.

- Which uniform set would include the alternate red helmet?

LOVE the logo, LOVE the striping. You've always been my favorite designer here, and seeing your concepts is a treat, this is no different. The one thing that irks me about the logo is on his face, where you have the navy shading, there's like two blotches of royal blue inside the navy, and it almost looks like you're trying to make a face (eye and a mouth) that's really, really depressed. Just get rid of those blotches.

sorry bills fans, im not from your shores so i have no sense of bills uniform protocol or historicity.

be kind, i know not what i do.

That's not a hindrance...it's a benefit.

You don't have images of all the uniforms of the past clouding your judgment as to what the uniform and logo should look like. It's very hard to enter a project like this with a blank slate.

It's also somewhat challenging to make it look different from the Patriots (same division), especially with the same basic color scheme.

The only thing I'd do is remove the logo from the pants, because I think it's too similar to the Patriots' pants that way.

The Patriots don't have a logo on the pants.
