The Browns are getting a new uniform this year and today they unveiled their new helmet and and alternate logo. I was hoping for big changes. Instead, the changes are minimal.
Let’s first look at the helmet. The Browns are adding a brighter shade of orange to their identity, which means their logoless helmet will remain logoless, just with a different shade of orange. And instead of a gray facemask, it is now brown. The brown facemask is a first in the NFL I believe and it adds some identity to the helmet. I actually like this change. I was hoping for a logo on the helmet but that wouldn’t work for me. The Browns will always be a team without a logo for me and they stuck with it.
Here is a word from the team:
Our updated helmet logo is reflective of today’s modern Cleveland – the design honors the past while evolving into the future. The iconic brown and white stripes stand tall over the orange helmet – a new orange color that matches the passion of the Dawg Pound. The new brown facemask represents the strength and toughness of Cleveland.
The San Francisco Giants have unveiled a very unnecessary black alternate jersey today. They take a similar approach to what they did with their last black jersey. Except this time it’s not the team name, but their cap logo on the left side. (Oddly, they won’t have an accompanying cap for this jersey.) It’s the idea of their alternate road jersey, but in black.
Along with the black on black logo, they have orange piping and the sleeve stripe. They introduce a new sleeve patch as well. There will be no name on back, much like the home jersey, and the number will be in the same design as the logo in front.
I like the detail in the Super Bowl patch this year. You have the stadium and some elements of the desert like the cactus. But I am starting to get real frustrated with the generic Super Bowl logos. I thought I could withstand the frustration but it’s been a few years now and I miss the days where the logo was unique every year.
Next year, I expect the logo to be gold but basically the same design.
This also indicates that the Patriots will wear their white jersey for the Super Bowl as expected. The Seahawks have also tweeted out a photo of their patch and they will wear blue.
Last night AK-47 Studios posted this on Instagram.
As you may know, AK-47 has posted some amazing work in the past.
This morning, he unveiled some of his work. I think these are great. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with in the next several days.
OK, this is pretty cool.
Baldgraphics, created by Thomas Correia, went to Instagram to share these amazing creations. What if the NFL logos were for superheroes? Looking at some of these, I am amazed.
Which ones are your favorite?
The Raptors unveiled this video today which features their new logo. This means that the current logo with the dinosaur will be no more after this season.
What a shame. I liked the dinosaur. I don’t like Drake and his creative ideas for the Raptors. This new logo isn’t creative at all. In fact, it looks similar to another logo.
I have always loved what AK-47 Studios has done with his graphic designs. He shares them on Instagram and for the past couple of months, he has put together our favorite Disney characters with NFL logos. Just take a look at some of the creations he has put together. You can even buy them right here.
I like his creativity and what different ways we can reimagine some NFL logos. Which ones are your favorite? You can look at all of them right here.
