Outstanding work on the Dolphins uniforms. You fixed everything wrong with their current sets (horrible number font, lack of orange, missing the helmet in the logo).

Having the navy and royal blue isn't working, especially with them right next to each other they bleed together and get lost.

Hmmm. The blue I was trying for was supposed to be slightly lighter than royal... sort of a desaturated version of their old blue helmet, which was definitely lighter than a standard royal.

To me, that isn't what I'd call royal blue. This is the blue worn by the Buffalo Bills...

That is royal blue... I was trying for something lighter and grayer than that. Also, you can see the Bills use royal and navy together, although I suppose you could argue about how successful it is.

the fact that i never noticed the navy before proves my point, the colors bleed together, and you are right its not royal, just don't know what else to call it (seafoam blue from the old seahawks jerseys?)

Here's another Arizona Cardinals concept. I added some bright scarlet red to the trim, and linked up the stripes throughout.

I'm not sure about the scarlet trim, but I love the overall idea.

New Saints idea. I was looking at some Mardi Gras designs and kept seeing this diamond pattern reoccurring.

The pattern looks good on the black but I'm not a fan on the white. The number font looks good and really familiar for some reason.

It's a slightly modified Phoenix Suns font.

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...

And finally a new Falcons idea. I was looking at a spaceship my kid built out of legos... he's only 7 but already fixated on color schemes. (I'm very proud.) He built it using only black, red, and dark gray bricks, and I started thinking what a great color combo it was. So I threw this together. (And yes, I stole the sleeve/chest stripe from myself on the Bucs concept above.)

FALCONS--need some sort of striping down both sides of the pants. Also the red numbers on the black jerseys would be too difficult to read from the stands and on television. Your road uniform is not bad.

BUCS--I wish you had gone back to their 1997-2013 uniforms, minus the white pants. That's what I did on my concepts.

DOLPHINS--I wrote about that on your separate thread for the Dolphins.

CARDINALS--like your Broncos concept, the scarlet is unnecessary, plus it does look too much like Cardinal red. The two shades of red together make the sleeve and pants stripes look identical to the Buccaneers' 1997-2013 pants stripes. I would just go with black-Cardinal red-black. I also think the red jerseys look better with no stripes on the sleeves.

SAINTS--the diamonds make the uniforms look too busy. Also, black, old gold, and white are enough colors for them.

BRONCOS--yeah, light blue and navy blue are one shade too many. I would go with just royal blue as a compromise with the orange and white. I would also go with plain royal blue socks. Otherwise, I think you came up with a nice set of uniforms for the Broncos.

This is an idea I've tried before... trying to find some new real estate for the Charger's jersey bolts. I don't like the current treatment, and the old style shoulder bolts would be really squeezed on a modern template. This idea kind of follows the Seahawks' and Browns' use of the front upper chest area. As always, thoughts and comments are welcome.

Falcons set looks good but I've never liked the grey numbers on the red jersey, I think white would be an improvement
