FanPost Friday: Talk uniform to me, part II

Poll results and a challenge to the designers out there!

Ken Griffey Jr. #24
FPF eyewear edition coming soon

Hello and welcome back to FanPost Friday. Spring Training is in full swing, we just found out fans will be allowed at T-Mobile Park starting on Opening Day, and Jake Fraley finally got his first two ST hits. Much to think about, but I’m still stuck on uniforms. I found last week’s poll results fascinating!

It’s basically a vote along party lines, isn’t it? (ed. note: NO POLITICS, ERIC!!!) But, seriously, I was shocked to see fans of the navy/silver/NWG prevail over blue/yellow given all the very vocal teal-haters I’ve heard from recently. Seems like the current scheme has plenty of support, although it’s not exactly an overwhelming majority. Voters were a bit more split on full re-design versus tweaking what they have, but still, the ol’ compass rose is holding strong.

So, that brings me to the prompt for those of you who voted full re-design!

Prompt:

Give us your best mock-up! We want to see your ideas for a full re-design. If you’ve made one in the past, go ahead and reshare it in the comments. Those of you who are graphically-inclined and want to do something fun or procrastinate from your real job, here’s your chance. For those who are not skilled in Photoshop, I especially encourage you to take your best crack at it or make something intentionally shabby! We are no stranger to shabby graphics here at LL.

All right, so give us your best or worst uniform re-design, post it in the comments, and let’s talk about what might be. Have a great weekend, y’all.
