Faux Backs

UniWatch is one of my favorite blogs. I've always loved sports uniform design. As a kid, I did tons of drawings of athletes, and loved to design uniforms. As an adult, I check out UniWatch to feed my obsession with sports uniforms. Today had an article about a designer who took old uniforms and mixed some of those elements with the current uniforms, calling them "fauxbacks", because they aren't really throwbacks because they were never used before, but still have some slight nostalgia. Paul Soto, the designer does his fauxbacks using Photoshop. I was inspired to create one of my own.

I used to love the old Blue Jay uniforms when they were great in the early 90's. The new design on the left mixes the old 90's design with the current design on the right, by just having the word "Jays" along with the bird head.

Here is the road uniform. My new design on the left, and the current on the right. I kept the 90's font and logo, and added the color black, and made a couple different hats. I don't really know which hat would be better.

Well, there you have a little exercise in Photoshop and uniform obsession. A fun way to spend your time on a blustery morning.
