Re-imagining the CFL: Calgary Stampeders

Ah 2020, we all have a little extra time on our hands right now. We are all trying to keep busy, and with the CFL season all but cancelled trying to fill the void where training camps should be. 

Being a self professed logo snob, I decided to challenge myself and redesign the entire CFL. 9 teams, 3 uniforms (home, away, and third), 27 different uniforms in total.

I also followed the CFL guidelines and used one helmet shell per team. Which means one helmet colour, but means I can change the decals if need be. Sorry, Stamps fans there is no colour fade helmet in this project either. 

The order of unveiling is how the 2019 regular season standings shook out, and we are going from the worst record to the best. 

I would like to thank the fans and players that I showed my initial concepts too. As a Rider fan I wanted to make sure I was capturing the spirit of their team. 

 

Calgary Stampeders.... HERE WE GO... 

 

 

My Calgary Stampeders Vision Board

 

You know for being arguably the most successful team in the past decade the Stampeders have been pretty blah when it comes to looks. 

It could quite possibly be that since Ottawa came back into the league it it looked like they were 2 pallette swapped teams, like Sub Zero and Scorpion from Mortal Kombat... except football... and one team was usually good...  

The Stamps were/are rumoured to be getting a new look with this being their 75th anniversary, it will be interesting to see what they come up with. 

 

Home Uniform:

Buh Bye BLACK!  

First thing I would do is trade the black for the throw back silver/grey. No other team wears silver/grey anymore so this would automatically distinguish them from the rest of the league but more importantly the REDBLACKS.

The numbers are a custom font that I believe the Stamps accidentally leaked this year, time will only tell. 

 

 

 

Away Uniform:

Same look as the home added a shoulder yoke, which has been staple of the Stamps since the Henry Burris "clown collar" era. 

Red pants instead of the silver for a different look, which also matched the red jersey if they ever wanted to go a monochrome look. 

 

 

Alternate Uniform:

Stampeders "Dark Horse" Alternate

 

 

I know I said get rid of the black.

But the black Labour Day set has been a tradition since the days of Doug Flutie.  Because of the one shell rule we can't do the fading helmet but we can have a black and silver horse.

 

Would love to see your feedback below or on twitter at @GregOnSports or @PifflesPod.
