Sunday Re-Imagined

I am a pretty big football fan {of both college and the NFL} and with The Big Game coming up next weekend there have been quite a few interesting articles and sites popping up on my reader.

One that caught my eye immediately was "Gridiron League", a set of the NFL logos re-imagined by a graphic design artist named Wes Kull.  He describes the project as:

Gridiron League is a collection of idealized NFL insignias that pay tribute to each team's history and geography in a period-specific aesthetic that glorifies the Vince Lombardi-era over the Cold-Activated-era. This is not an exercise in nostalgia but an interpretation of the league's founding principles through the symbols that we, as football fans, identify with most.

It is pretty cool to see the team logos through his eyes!  A few are definitely improvements from where the league is today.  Some of my favorites:

And in honor of The Big Game:


Mr. Kull's other sites are worth looking at too.  I love the clean, uncomplicated lines of the work that he does.

What do you think of Mr. Kull's designs?

Until tomorrow . . .
