Modernizing NFL Europa Teams - 3D Helmets: Amsterdam Admirals

Recommended Posts

Thought it would be neat to see modernized versions of the NFL Europa teams, so I'm giving it a shot. Starting with the Barcelona Dragons. I'll post original identities followed by my ideas on modernizing and any changes based on criticism/critiques I receive. Thanks in advance!

Toned down the green a bit to make the color scheme less "Christmas-y". Modernized the cartoon dragon to something that I hope is sleeker and a bit more fierce.

And a color version of the wordmark.

And finally, some uni's. What do you think? Is this project worth pursuing? Changes that need to be made to Barcelona?

Cheers!

It's a worthy project. I think the Dragon's jaw needs to be more defined. It's not there right now so the neck looks like it goes into the skull.

hmm, the logo itself is missing something. I don't know if it's the lack of an outline so the pieces seem separated, but something just isn't finished. The Jerseys look great though. Gonna be interested to see how this goes.

I would bring back the red lips, and put in a few more teeth, and then make the teeth white.

Maybe a white eye with a green pupil, and a nostril for the nose.

Will we see London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam or Rhein anytime soon?

I was (and still am) a bit torn on this team. I was actually a pretty big fan of this team growing up (relatively so, anyway), so designing a huge departure from their funky original identity was bittersweet. Decided to rev up the red to a more "fire red". Definitely wanted to simplify the logo and make it less of an acid trip to look at, but still trying to decide if what I ended up with is oversimplified.

Went for a wordmark that was more legible and simpler than the original.

Rhein's uniform sets. Thoughts on the Fire?

I'd go with the original color scheme since the orange seems to stand out a little better and just looks unique compared to the other. You might need to go with another number font also. As is, it doesn't fit well with the rest of the identity.

Im not feeling Rhein Fire. The R ball logo is weak. The uniforms are good in the original colors but the number font is not strong enough.

Tried to make the suggested changes. New font, original reds, and a new (still boring) logo. I'm definitely struggling coming up with a "fire" logo.

The split pant stripes for Barcelona is bugging me.

I like your sleek, simple, and stylized take on the Barca logo.

For Rhein, I would just have the flame without the R. The pant legs should have a flame design a la the 1984 Arizona Wranglers of the USFL.

When you do Frankfurt, I think they would be okay with just a touch up of the original logo.

When you do the London Monarchs, their original logo is perfect as is, but I would like to see your take with the original blue, gold and red colors.

When you do Amsterdam, the orange ribbons around the shield could be simplified, and green can easily be phased out to just have blue and orange.

IMO, the Rhein Fire helmet logo was iconic so I'd at least like to see that or something similar.
