The History of the Packers’ “G”

The History of the Packers’ “G”

It's amazing to me that the same logo in two different colors can conjure up such vastly different sets of emotions. One of my favorite teams, The Green Bay Packers, shares a logo with my least favorite team, the Georgia Bulldogs. And as much as I see the oval "G" in red and black on the backs of cars in my home state of Georgia and have a brief moment of hatred toward that person, the same mark i...

2 Plans to Replace the BCS

2 Plans to Replace the BCS

I know this is a sports design blog, but I don't have any other outlet to share my thoughts with the world, and the following is a sports topic, so it's half related, right? The BCS sucks. This is a fact, and even if you're for some reason against a playoff, decimal points choosing only two teams to compete for a national championship is ridiculous. In the NCAA, only diving, gymnastics, and the...

MLB logo/uniform updates

I knew when I started this blog that it would be tough to post with any type of regularity, but I didn't think it would get this bad. Sorry about that. I'm going to start making some smaller posts with more frequency in addition to the longer ones I typically write. If you're on Twitter, you can follow me at @SportDesignBlog for more...

World Series Logo History

World Series Logo History

With the World Series starting tonight, I thought it would be interesting to look at the history of World Series logos. As usual, a big hat tip must go to Chris Creamer's sportslogos.net for the logos and dates. While the modern World Series has been played since 1903, from all sources I could find, the oldest official logo wa...

Uniform Concept – Georgia Tech football

Uniform Concept – Georgia Tech football

As you've probably figured out by now, I'm a huge Georgia Tech fan. And as I stated in my 2011 college football uniform updates post, I am not a huge fan of Georgia Tech's football uniforms. I've always seen uniform concepts presented online in that Nike ...

Pro Combat Uniforms and the Like

My last post focused on all the teams that had redesigns of their everyday uniforms this year. Now I'm looking at teams who got special, one-time uniforms, like Nike's famous (or in some cases infamous) Pro Combat uniforms. Nike started this trend of one-...

2011 College Football Uniform Changes

It's been a while, and I apologize. I knew when I started this blog that it would be tough to post regularly, but I didn't see the onslaught of freelance work that would take all of my free time as of late. If you're interested in writing a guest post, let me know. I HAD to write something now becaus...
