As a student the block is getting darn boring to wear. There's only so much apparel I can take with it on before it becomes too repetitive and, well, stale. If my wallet had a mouth it would reject most of the apparel sold save for a few.We really need to do something to spice up that Block I or just do away with it. It looks so weak and amateur and boring. I get using a Block I for some things and I understand it's usefulness but it consistently looks drab and cartoonish on everything. It needs some major tweaking or some design alternative in its spot.
Yeah, sometimes rebrands are just BIG misses.As a student the block is getting darn boring to wear. There's only so much apparel I can take with it on before it becomes too repetitive and, well, stale. If my wallet had a mouth it would reject most of the apparel sold save for a few.
I agree with the poster who said to keep the Flyin' Illini uni's as the main uniform and have whatever modern creation as the alternative. The Flyn' Illini fits the "classic" check mark and it appeals across generations, not just a particular set of people in that particular set of time. Check mark for thoughtfulness and intentionality . Sometimes brand consistency in its current form sucks.
And I slightly dislike the font currently being used by athletic department's effort to rebrand.
White was the only rebranded jersey ever to have the two tone, I believe. Exhibit A Exhibit B
It looks like they have gotten rid of the two-tone lettering on the grey rebrand and the blue rebrand that Trent is wearing. But they are keeping it (blue and orange lettering) for the white rebrand?
The practice jerseys the team have been wearing look like that.Still thinking about that bold decision on one of the supposed leaked jerseys another user detailed in here. I keep seeing this apparel around and can't help but wonder if that "nameplate" could be it? Odds are no and this is a generic Nike sweater template, but I think it could make for a good basketball uni
