This NFLxNBA Uniform Mashup Is Pretty Awesome (Pics)
Most NFL uniforms are pretty unremarkable, and it’s really not anybody’s fault. The problem is that NFL uniforms have to have huge numbers on the front and back so referees can tell who’s doing what. That leaves no room for word marks or logos, which are confined to the helmets. On the actual uniforms, the lines, color palette, and font are all a designer has to work with, which means NFL jerseys are just fancy shirts with numbers on them.
