Oldschoolvikings' NFL concepts - Falcons fix added 6/6/20

Recommended Posts

these look great! I was afraid the might look too much like UGA, but you did a great job distancing the two and making the Falcons unique among other NFL teams.

Are gradients really needed? I think you can do without it.

Needed? No, most definitely not needed. I'm just playing around. Sometimes I think of these concepts as sort of like the concept cars they have every year at the auto shows... the one that they make to show off, but will never be put into production. This is absolutely not what I'd do if the Lions came calling. But I thought it would be fun to make.

Looks cool with it though

Someone recently posted a picture of the Jets' 80's kelly green and black uniform, and I was thinking that it looked nicer than I remembered...

Also, I kind of like the idea of mixing two different shades of green, like the Jets did on their recent Color Rash uniform.  So with this concept, I'm trying to marry a few elements from the current look to the above kelly green look, and use both greens, as well.

 

Thoughts?

I like the Bucs orange jersey but not the silver helmet or pants. White pants would look good.

OK, here it is with a white helmet and pants (and gray removed throughout). Plus a helmet stripe. Which is better?

I don't get the pattern. I don't care. I think it looks great.

Next is a Tampa Bay Buccaneer set. For myself, like a lot of you, I'd just want to see them go back to the previous set. It was pretty close to perfect. But, I know they aren't going to do that. Teams can't just go back that quick... its like admitting they were wrong to change. Which they were, but still.

So, what if I was asked to keep the "feel" of the new uniform, but fix what just absolutely can't stay? Here's what I came up with.

Things that MUST go;

  • Oversized helmet logo
  • Pewter yoke
  • Worst number font EVER
  • Mismatched sleeve logos
  • Blocky pants graphics
  • Pewter socks

What I can work with to keep a bit of the new uniform's feel:

  • New helmet logo at a decent size
  • New emphasis on orange
  • Modern number font
  • non-traditional stripes on sleeves and pants

I decided to simplify overall... drop the sliver/chrome idiocy, reduce black to logos only.

Here's what I got...

Something about the ship on the pants is really cool.  Awesome set here.  I don't get what they were thinking with the alarm clock numbers or the giant helmet logo.

Yeah, I'm the one who made the pattern, and I don't get it either.  However, if I worked for Nike I'm sure I could BS my way to some kind of conceptual explanation, involving pirate clothing, or sails, or something.

It's amazing how much better the Lions look without the black trim.  The blue pants look mighty fine too.  Great work once again!
