New England Patriots Re-Design

The columnist who runs the sports-uniform blog held another re-design challenge, and this was for me probably the toughest one yet, since it was for the New England Patriots.

As longtime readers know, I’m a big Patriots fan and have very strong opinions about their uniforms. For me, the team’s design from 1969-72 was virtually perfect, so it was a daunting task indeed to come up with anything original I could bear to suggest in place of it.

Minnesota Vikings Re-Design 1

Another re-design contest by the Uniwatch column at espn.com, this time to re-design the Minnesota Vikings. And my submissions are pretty out there.

I did two full sets this time because I'd coincidentally done one already that I like a lot but didn't feel would particularly stand out in a contest. Meanwhile, I'd just been thinking about another approach to the Vikings, one that felt like it would stand out a lot more, so I spent much of Easter weekend with the colored pencils illustrating that additional Vikings concept.

And the Easter weekend was appropriate because, as you can see, it's pretty much what you'd get if you crossed the Minnesota Vikings with an Easter egg -- a very pastel take on the Vikings' traditional purple-and-gold colors.
