  1. This is horrible. Falcon looks like a bat. Raven can’t even be made out, actually all the birds look ridiculous. The Bengals looks like some short of tiger shrimp.The Packer is just ugly as sin.NYG is terrible. Just complete ass to tell you the truth

        • your just one of those people who doesn’t like to go with the flow if you want to say something your gonna say it. If it sounds angry, ignorant or just plain stupid you say it…yup im describing a troll. Go find a cave somewhere and only come out at night because no person with a relevant opinion cares about what you have to say Jas.

          • Lmao. You sound like the whiny little kid that has been a follower all his life. If its popular, you’re gonna hope on the bandwagon and do it. If someone goes against it you have a little fit. Literally the same as the teenage girls raging about Bieber slander on twitter. That’s exactly what you look like. Get your lame ass out of here

    • Ok so there is absolutely nothing wrong with disliking these logos. Yes, you are totally entitled to an opinion. I am a graphic designer, but I also do not like ALL of these logos as well. For example, the Ravens logo is too dark and you cannot make out the contours that make up the face. With that said, in order to do a productive and a real critique is it important to give reasons why you do not like something( which you do for the most part) but also refrain from just saying its just complete ass. Just saying you do not like something or it’s terrible does not validate your argument and in fact hinders it. You could say the logos become too busy or the color schemes do not work, things like that. Now, it is your opinion but MY opinion would be your reasoning could be detailed out better.

      • Well I’m not a pro critic so I really could of cared less about giving the proper critique. I get where you’re coming from though. I still think the majority of it is just plain terrible. Not sure why every team with a C has to be shaped to the letter or how every animal other than the Bronco looks so bland like it was taken from a photo album. The only one that is decent is the skins. But other than that, they are terrible

        • yeah the GB logo looks like a baseball team logo. I get where it’s trying to go, but it is a maze. Honestly, the Bengals logo creeps me out. Like a tiger/alien hybrid ready to eat you with its huge mouth and tiny body

          • And it’s in the shape of Wisconsin. Not a good look.Eagles and Seahawks are just weird and awkward looking.But on a positive note, anything is better than the Titans current logo. So thumbs up for that

          • COMMON SENSE TOLD ME IT WAS PACKER related but as a Packer fan it still took me a moment to in my head go through the “maze” and completely understand it was a G inside a B…

      • Tough criticism is the best criticism. How do you expect the guy to be better if you treat him like a child and talk up his work when its poor. Let him know exactly what you think of it and don’t pull any punches.People are so soft nowadays it’s ridiculous. Stop being a bunch of pansies. He should thanking me for being brutally honest.

    • Some of them aren’t my thing either, but hey it’s fun to see the exploration. Keep hating people for trying, while not offering anything yourself. It’s what keeps the internet running!

  2. Oh GOSH I have already purchased two different NFL team cotton material to make future quilts…to bad they didn’t come out with this before the Winter fabrics were printed…..

      • Fun fact I learned in school.
        The colors were chosen to promote the attributes for steel: yellow
        lightens your work; orange brightens your leisure; and blue widens your
        world. The logo’s meaning was later amended to represent the three
        materials used to produce steel: yellow for coal; orange for iron ore;
        and blue for steel scrap.

    • The Steelers logo is supposed to look like the American Steel logo. I dislike the change. The only one I want to see on the field is the Bills thing

  3. As a Giants fan, I personally miss the old helmet logos, but I think this new one would look better than one we have now; it’s classy

  4. I think these would be cool for merchandise, but I resist change so I wouldn’t like to see the actual team logos change.

  5. I like 30 out of 32. This dude did a really good job. Stop hating people. These are concept logos. It leaves a lot of room for creativity. Let the man live he can design what he wants

    • Only if you let people comment what they want. If he has free reign to design and make his creations public, people have the same right to state their opinion.

  6. Raiders, Jets, Broncos, Bucs, Rams and Redskins are all much better than the official logos. The others all make good alternates.

  7. To be honest, I don’t like any of them at all…EXCEPT for the 49ers one. Really like the sharp look of that one, especially compared to what they currently have for a logo.

  8. A few are great, but most are not that great. The best ones are Chiefs, Jets, 49ers, Rams, and Redskins… The rest are fine just the way they are.

      • “pats bandwagon jumper”? That makes no sense. The pats have been good for 13 years you moron. I assume by your comment you’re a Jets fan. I guess you’ll know the definition of a “bandwagon jumper” in a few decades when they have a winning season again.

        • A bandwagon fan is someone that is a fan just because they are good. A bandwagon jumper is someone that is not longer a fan just because they are now bad…as in they jumped off the “my team is good” bandwagon.

      • There are not a lot of Patriots bandwagoners in Boston. Everyone I know stuck through the Pete Carroll era with full hope in the team.

  9. A lot of these are pretty much the same, just revamped. They look awesome, for the most part, some better than others. To all the people hating, do better. I dare you. You sit there on the computer and complain about stuff all day, but don’t do anything with your time besides sit on the computer…Just get a life and appreciate the little things, it’s not a big deal.

  10. I like the Browns. Some of the others look good. I don’t care for the Cowboys logo, it looks a little like the Wicked Witch and its already perfect. Go Cowboys!

  11. The ones that I think are cool are: Cardinals, Ravens, Bills, Panthers, Broncos, Texans, Jaguars, Chiefs, Dolphins, Patriots, Raiders, 49ers, Rams, Buccaneers, Titans, and the Redskins. All the others needs improvement.

  12. Cardinals – improvement
    Falcons – ok
    Ravens – bad
    Bills – improvement
    Panthers – Improvement
    Bears – Improvement
    Bengals – ok
    Browns- ok
    Cowboys – People don’t like classics messed up
    Broncos – improvement
    Lion – bad
    Packers – Bad, don’t mess with their logo
    Texans – No opinion
    Colts – ok
    Jaguars – ok
    Chiefs – ok
    Dolphins – good
    Vikings – improvement
    Patriots – ok
    Saints- about the same
    Giants – Bad
    Jets – ok
    Raiders – Improvement
    Eagles – Bad
    Steelers – ok
    Chargers – not sure
    49ers – I kind of like it, but I could see how others dislike it
    Seahawks – bad
    Rams – I like
    Buccaneer – improvement
    Titans – Improvement
    Redskins – Improvement

    My favorites are the Vikings, Raiders, Buccaneers, and Bills.
    Worst ones: All the Birds look bad, Giants, Packers

  13. I actually like most of these. Bucs, 49ers, Pats all look great. I am a Saints fan and the new logo, while not much changed, looks sharp. And as difficult as it is as a Saints fan, the Falcons logo looks really good. Only a few I did not care for: Giants, Bills, Ravens, and Packers, although the creativity is phenominal on all of these (including those I dont particularly care for). Not sure what to think about Bengals…

  14. I can see you have a strong technical skill, however the nfl logos are simplistic on purpose. These logos would never work as team logos because many of them are way to complicated. The detail would be lost when scaling down to small sizes making them look more like a blob/blur. Simplicity also helps with committing to memory. These logos would appeal more to high school/college teams (which is not saying they are bad per se). There are some strengths and weaknesses to all of them. Judgement is much different than critique so please don’t take my comments as judgment. As a designer you have some work that is great and some that is not so great. Thanks for sharing

    • I agree. Some of the detail on these logos, though really impressive, will be lost in various scaling applications. However, overall I think this is great stuff. There are some here that I really love. Thanks for sharing it with us!

  15. I like some of em but not most just not the way id do most of them. He has some creativity . Just needs some revisions and all that for.my taste but its good to see some different views to the logos.

  16. Honestly, some of these are worse than the current logo (like Steelers, Seahawks, and Packers), but some of these should be adopted like right now (like Titans and Chiefs). Overall, great work!

  17. I think a lot of these designs are creative and imaginative,
    but some also miss the mark. In some I detect a medieval theme, like in the
    Vikings, Titans, and Ravens. They all have a dark, ominous, intimidating
    quality that I think would work for football team in the NFL. Being a Charger’s
    fan I really like what Mr. O’Brien did with their logo. It captures our horse
    mascot, the electric blue and yellow colors, and the shape of the “bolt” you
    see on their helmets these days. Other designs I also liked were the Texans,
    Redskins, Chiefs, Raiders, and Bucs.

    The rest of the newly designed logos seemed like a more
    vivid representation of the current logos like the Falcons, Jaguars, Dolphins,
    Cardinals, Panthers, Rams, and Broncos. So they didn’t really stick out to me.
    The most head scratching logo designs have to be the Giants and the Packers
    logos. The criss-crossing letters just don’t do it for me as a consumer. Also
    if Cincinnati were to adopt that logo or put it on any merchandise they might
    as well call themselves the Tiger Shrimp.

    Someone pointed out that the teams would likely never adopt these logos for use on their
    uniforms (some might) but could possibly be used for other merchandise, which I
    think is a very plausible outcome from these. All-in-all I always support
    creative endeavors and think Mr. O’Brien did a good job on these designs. Like
    most art, however, it’s not going to be liked by everybody.

  18. Some cool ones in here! And wow, I wouldn’t really want the Raiders to change their classic logo but the revision one on here is pretty badass.

  19. As a Titans fan I will say they may need an updated logo soon, but this concept one isn’t very good in my opinion it looks too Disney.

  20. The NY Giants logo is pathetic who came up with this wacked logo. You can’t even see the NY clear. Back to the drawing board do some justice for the GMEN. I know the fans won’t like it! If this is the logo I will no longer purchase Giants gear I will sport the old stuff, and truly represent the Big Blue!

  21. Nothing is better than the lone
    G
    for

    GREATNESS
    it cannot be designed any better than what it is now!!
    He did redesign the Green Bay Packers logo he just stuck a Wisconsin outline behind an old logo.

  22. for AFC north I don’t like any of the new logo’s better than the old one [except the steelers. I like it, but don’t like that it doesn’t have the steel logo in it. That just doesn’t work to me].
    NFC north, I like the Lions logo. The vikings is cool and all, but I prefer their current logo, and the greenbay one is awful. Gotta have the G.

    All the rest of the teams out there… I don’t really care.

  23. Buffalo, Cleveland, Tennesee, and KC were my Favs. I like the Niner logo but too intricate to be seen and recognized.

    Bengals looks like a tiger crossed with a tadpole.

  24. GB, Giants, Chiefs, and Bengals ones suck. Being a GB fan there is so much more that could be done with it. Same thing with the others. The Bengals one looks like a shrimp or something…

  25. Maybe for elementary school teams who are using the names. Very creative but dislike the Giants, Steelers, Dallas, chargers, jets (come on now), Patriots, vikings, Packers, bears look like you bit off of the real panthers one. The Ravens look like the velveteen rabbit.

  26. I love them! Except for the giants logo. I don’t know why everyone is hating. Probably just trying to sound like they know what they are talking about. Really great job!!!

  27. I really like the logos for Carolina, Dallas, Kansas City, Minnesota, New England, Oakland, San Francisco, Tampa Bay, and Tennessee. Your designs add freshness and creativity to these teams.

  28. All of the bird logos look bad. The Falcons is hardly different than the current one, just not as angular. My favorite team might as well be renamed our haters favorite nickname for us, the “Seachickens” because that’s what this makes us look like.

    None of the cats look as intimidating either, and you really need that in an NFL logo. Lions makes me think of Simba running to face Scar at the end of The Lion King.

    The Bills logo is extremely awkward and more comical than anything. Could you imagine that on a helmet??

    And I like the majority of the Broncos logo, but is that a f’ing strand of hair coming out of its eye???

    The guy in the Cowboys logo looks like someone any football player could hit once and put in a body cast. I’ll call him Grampa Cowboy. “Back in my day, we didn’t wear these fancy helmets!”

    Vikings is decent, but it looks more like a statue you’d see outside the stadium. Like everything about their offense beside AP, it’s standing still.

    The illustration for the Patriots is alright, but the lock-up of the face with the logotype is already perfection. And I hate the Patriots.

    The Saints is practically just a 3D version of the current fleur de lis with a little.. Saint? in black at the bottom. That font is awesome though!

    The Rams logo is trying too hard to make an “R” out of the horn.

    Never ever EVER, make a railroad crossing logo. It’s even more overdone than the “Keep Calm” poster. Google “Your logo is not hardcore”.

    College logo look-alikes: Packers, Giants (Notre Dame), Chiefs (SD State)

    These ones are fantastic though: Bears, Browns, Texans, Colts, Dolphins, Jets, Raiders, Steelers, Chargers, Buccaneers, Titans and Redskins.

    Sorry, I might be a bit harsh, but it’s just the designer in me. Takes me back to college, critiques and stuff.

  29. There are some really good ones in here and some bad ones. I’m a Bears fan and I do not like this redesign. The Bucs and Raiders with the skulls just look too evil. I think the Tiger shrimp and Tiger alien are both good descriptions of the Bengals. That one is just bad. The Chargers may be added to that too. Most of the bird logos are cool and I like the Redskins and Titans. I like where he was going with SF but I think there’s too much going on in that one. Texans, Colts, Chiefs, Pats and Saints are all good ones too. I haven’t made up my mind on the Steelers. I think i like it, but I’m not sure what he’s going for with the three stripes. I’ll have to look at that one again later. Overall this is a cool concept.

  30. I’d like to point out that in the Bears logo, the bear’s mouth forms the Chicago “C”, and I thought that was extremely clever. Well done. A large number of these should be implemented.

  31. Anyone else notice the Bears’ current “C” logo shape in the Bear’s teeth? I’d say a lot of these are improvements, but there’s also a good amount that aren’t.

  32. in my opinion..

    Good: DAL (though it’d never fly, maybe as an alt logo);
    DEN (not a big departure there though);
    NE, NYJ, OAK, TB, TEN, and WAS I think are all really well done. OAK esp is so much in that team’s wheelhouse. I actually think the strongest (which would also never change, like Dallas) was PIT.. very modern but still very Steelers.

    Bad: all the birds, except maybe ATL. They look harmless instead of predatory for the most part. Actually the animal ones in general aren’t great, the DET lion looks bored, HOU is way too Chicago Bulls, CHI looks cuddly. CLE doesn’t and shouldn’t have a logo, which is why its my favorite team logo (it’s like the team is saying stickers are for little girls).

    last note on IND: you can’t turn your lucky charm on it’s side, when you literally have Luck.

  33. Overall they are pretty creative. First thought when I saw the Dallas logo was that it was a witch and not a cowboy (point hat ….. at least at first glance it looks that way). Some of these are better than the current day logo (i.e. Raiders, Redskins, Panthers, etc.) and the Colts is killer cause it is so simple yet so inventive!

  34. many cool concepts in there, with good style. that’s a lot of time and effort to do these designs/concepts for every team. i hope it pays off for you. if anything, this is a huge portfolio piece. i’d say about half are better than the current logos, imo.

  35. Sick….I was not digging the Broncos logo at first. Been then I noticed it was a mountain peak. Pure genius!!!

  36. Cardinal’s face looks a little wonky. Font size is an issue with some (i.e. Baltimore). Jacksonville text graphics looks a little phoned-in. There are some texture bleeding issues (as in the Steelers’ third ‘bar’). I’m also going to have to point out the spacing between the Saints’ text as the feathering of the ‘T’ causes the space between the ‘T’ and the ‘S’ to look unnatural. Also, on the Saints’ logo, the ‘light reflection’ effect appears to cause resolution degradation. The Patriots’ mascot’s mouth being red could cause people to think it is translucent being as the American flag’s red is the same color. Lost a lot of resolution on the Raiders’ bottom right near the sword (could be a lighting issue). It also appears he used the same background texture on all of the designs (this can be seen if you look at the Rams’ logo. Where the ram’s mouth is, it appears darker in a large spot. If you scroll up you can also see the same spot on the Raiders’ and Eagles’ logos, among others). Back to the Saints’ again, in the Fleur de Lis there is a black color bit that looks unnatural and would look wonky to any New Orleans fan. The Browns’ ‘O’ has a shade of orange inconsistent with the background and mascot orange. Also, the shading gradation on the background is a little too saturated, making that top right corner to look unnatural and would not translate to any merchandise other than a print or a poster (the last part of that sentence is opinion). The ‘BENGALS’ text font needs a little spice (opinion). Massive resolution loss in the Bears’ logo where it says ‘FOOTBALL’. The Buffalo Bills’ text is not centered. There are random unnatural-looking spots in most of the logos.
    Other than that, they look ok.
    If anyone needs any QA work, hit me up @ physed888 @ yahoo

  37. I think most of them are excellent though predictably (Bills fan) the one for the Bills kind of sucks. The Packers, Steelers, and Bengals I don’t care for the rest are either slight improvements or awesome. The attempt to make the Bengal into a C shape just doesn’t work for me. I was going to list the ones I really like but, there are way too many. Great work and very talented some of the teams should definitely buy these designs and even if they don’t use them as their main logo (some should) they could definitely sell merchandise with the deigns.

  38. There are a lot that are cool, but there is quite a few that are horrible. As a Saints fan, not sure if that black mark that looks like a person looks good at all or what is is, but probably should be removed. The worse ones are The Jags, the Texans, the Broncos looks like it’s wrinkled like it’s old, Cards, Packers, and most of the RAVENS. The Giants isn’t great either. The Eagles looks almost like a girl too, and just not sure about the SEAHAWKS. But the rest are cool, some are really cool. How about redoing those and repost all. Can you make the pictures bigger? These would be good to print and use as a small poster. I know a lot of people who would like these pics of their teams as a small poster.

  39. The Browns and the Titans are really cool. I don’t know what he was thinking for the Seahawks, Steelers and the Saints. The Saints is the same.

  40. What is going on with the logo for Green Bay…. its the one the most different and way way off beat for us TRUE PACKER FANS!!!! It’s all about that G!!!!!

  41. While I like the Seahawks concept for its realism, i dont think it would work. Yes this proposal looks more like the osprey but we lose some heritage with it. One key element of the current Seahawks logo is its homage to Native American artistic style.
