View Full Version : Chiefs Your thoughts on my NEW uniform design.


Agent V

This is going to get lost in Pioli (invisible deity bless him) madness, but here it goes.

I think it was about a year ago when I last attempted this. As a former graphic design student (now English major) I still dabble in the art, and the most difficult project I've ever attempted is the Kansas City Chiefs.

I WILL BE THE FIRST TO SAY: I DON'T THINK CHANGE IS NECESSARY, but it couldn't hurt, especially if done subtly and with NO BLACK.

I want to keep the blindingly awesome red as the center of the design, but integrate just enough yellow to make it consistent (the yellow, that is). I know most Chiefs fans don't want black, but I argue constantly with very talented sports design enthusiasts who insist me to add black just as the 49ers did, as an accent color.

Unnecessary, in my opinion, and I'm sticking to my guns here. We bleed red and gold. You don't add a rival team's color, even if it is just black. I've seen it done (with Chiefs uniform concepts), it's not horrible, but it isn't needed either.

I of course left the Lamar Hunt patch.

Fuck it. You probably aren't going to read all that anyway. Here you go:

Get rid of the gold and put black shoes and black face masks on them. Maybe on the all Red uniforms. I always hated the white socks with the colored stripes on them also. I wouldnt know what to change them to though.

You need to re-tool the logo.

You know, I can stare and stare at that thing for hours, recolor and re-outline, but nothing improves it. It's perfect. That's where I disagree with other sports logo enthusiasts on the issue. Yes, the black isn't consistent, but it makes it pop.

I don't mind the yellow, in fact I think the outline around the logo on the helmet is kinda cool. I don't pay close attention to what the rest of the unis look like as they are now, I wouldn't even probably notice if they did change anything, as long as they didn't put those stupid curving stripes on them like the Donks did it wouldn't bother me. The only thing that I can think of that would really piss me off is if they ever decided to change the logo. Nobody better fuck with the logo.

I found this site on the web, its pretty limited, but is really easy to use. I messed around on it for about 5 or 10 minutes.

http://www.teamworkathletic.com/taa/design-uniform/

Obviously select football (male), then customize.

The colors arent exactly the way they look for the Chiefs now, but just imagine the uniform with the current Chiefs colors. I would probably keep the KC helmets the same, I would just make the arrowhead "shorter" in heigth so it looked more steamlined or "sharp"... maybe make the "KC" more bold too.

The overall premise/design is sound, but you have to admit there are SOME elements that are downright clownish.

The 5 different stripes that run down the side of those red pants?

I like a lot of the old-school elements of the current uniform, but I'd like them better if they were stripped down a little and augmented with design elements that are timeless as opposed to "Hey, it's 1972 and you're grooving Pele-style to the sounds of Bachman Turner Overdrive"!

Winning IS the most important thing, no doubt.

If you look at what the Rams and the Patriots did, you'll see that the layout is basically the same, they just gave it a little push in to the modern era. Regardless of how you may feel about those teams, you can't deny that those overhauls were MAJOR improvements. I mean, can you imagine having to wear that old Rams rig as a fan? I'd rather kill myself, because that shit was FUG-LY.

The only drastic change I've made to our current uniform is the gold. I love the crimson red we use. I wouldn't wear it as a t-shirt, sweatshirt, or jacket, but as a football jersey it works BECAUSE it's so "loud".
I haven't messed with the numbers either. They're a timeless design/font, they're old-school in a good way, and they work.
The only other jersey changes are a rescaling on the sleeve stripes, and the addition of the arrowhead logo placed in a spot I don't want to disclose at this time.
The pants and the socks( especially the red pants )follow the same general theme, but have been stripped down to a "less is more" approach in an effort to get a more timeless vibe going.

The most controversial aspect of the total package is the Arrowhead. Or, the "New Arrowhead" I should say.
This is something I avoided working on for months, due to the inevitable shit-storm I knew it would create. I had kind of a vague outline in my head of an arrowhead that was more swept, proportional, and above all, more "attacking".
So one day at work, I fired up Auto CAD and started working it out. About 40 minutes in, I got word over the radio that Carl had "resigned".
Say what you will, but I took that as a sign and I'm sticking by this new arrowhead logo come hell or high water.

DCS is very Mojo like that.

Actually, it's all Lee Majors fault. Upon my 5th birthday, I was taken to the local 5 and dime to pick out a present.

I wanted the Six Million Dollar Man, but they were out and had only GI Joe's. So my Dad said, "Do you want the Joe, or do you want to wait"?

I chose to wait.

Speaking as one who was vehemently opposed to your last year's design, I actually think this one is pretty good. I wouldn't mind it. It captures the essence of the "classic" Chiefs uni, while giving it a subtle touch of style--it's got the sense of a new pride. My only critique would be the Arrowhead on the helmet looks too big. I think it should be a little bigger than it currently is, but not that big. It's too much, too donkey-like.

Hate to piggyback on this thread, but seeing as I'm not yet allowed to start one of my own on this forum, I don't have a choice!

Here are my designs for the Chiefs uniforms of the next 50 years. I'd like to hear from as many of you as possible regarding what you think:

Hmmm. I kind of like the Spidey look on the arms.

Did you bother to look at all of the designs? There were 3 distinctly different designs, two of which had away uniform renditions.

Also, like I just asked on the kc.com forum, if you're going to express a negative opinion in a "cool" way in order to make yourself feel better, please provide some reasoning to your opinion, as in why exactly you don't like it, so maybe I could try something else.

Constructive criticism. The kind that gets things done. Not, "tHat iz teh sToopidz!"

Thanks again.

Sorry not a fan HTrayne. I'm not a fan of the different color shoulder pads that is the "new" thing in uniforms. Keep working on that queer eye, the fab five isn't ready for you yet.

Just kidding, I appreciate the feedback. I like them at least, lol.

I'm not a Chiefs fan, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

I saw all the designs - they are all essentially based on the same concept. I thought they all looked like they came out of a 90's video game invisioning what the future might look like. The black - just awful. That's not even a Chiefs color. It looks especially horrid with that color of Chiefs red. The curve on the butt - wow that's gay. Why would anyone want to see the giant lard asses of a football player accented like that? *shudder*

I suppose the shoulder pad areas look ok on the designs, though they look kind of busy. I personally prefer a more solid look to them.

As a Broncos fan, I hope that you guys adopt those uniforms, and that they sell like hotcakes.

Thank you for explaining your opinion. Being that you've revealed yourself to me as being a Broncos fan, I've now determined that your opinion doesn't matter! Ha!

Seriously, thanks for explaining.

Honestly, I like your guys' uniforms now. I think the red pants look is gay, but outside that, I think you guys have sharp looking unis. Similarly, I hate the Broncos blue pants look. Man that's some ugly stuff.

I've seen a few variations on the "Euro-Uni", and most of the time they look pretty "blah".
Your color schemes are good and they're balanced well, but I'm here to tell you through a year plus of my OWN research; that much black will NEVER fly with the fan base as a whole if you're serious about effecting a change.

Good luck to you though!

Since the Chiefs uniforms areandalwayshavebeen PERFECT, I suggest you go design baseball uniforms or ice skating costumes or something. And I mean this in the kindest way possible.

I think our uniforms, while classic, are dated and kind of weaksauce when it comes to the intimidation aspect. I'm also a fan of the solid dark home uniforms and dark pants with away jerseys. That whole all-white nurse-look is really aggravating to me. Even though I absolutely despise your team, I think your uniforms are nice. Beats the hell out of road-crew orange.

I guess the college uniform designs have rubbed off on me. I live in Pittsburgh, too, so I can tell you how confident and mean people feel in black. Thought it might work for us!

They ARE great, and they'll be even MORE awesome for Throwback Day once I've sealed the forthcoming deal.

I think we should have laser cannons mounted on the shoulder pads, wrists, and helmets.

I'm cool with the shoulder cannons on the pads & helmets, but I think they'll result in even more drops for D-Bowe, so we should pass on that anatomical enhancement.

As witty as you?

I think not.

From one n00b (me) to another n00b (you), keep your head low, cover your balls, and dont say stupid shit like the above quoted.

What program did you use to design those?

Can you get the 3 dot laser-sight from the predator movie too? Maybe we can mount that and a cannon on Huard so he can finally upgrade his wobble launcher.

Chill, sweetheart. I've been posting on Chiefs forums for 10 years...there are always fans who are accepting, and everything I say is in jest.

I used the uniform creator from footballamerica.com

It's fun when you're bored, like tonight sitting here in this 13 degree weather when my furnace decided it didn't want to work. Nothing like warming yourself up with a little NFL uniform design activities.

Huh, sweetheart. I hadn't heard that since...... fuck it, I'm tired of mother jokes.
