The Jacksonville Jaguars will have a new look in 2018 -- and not a moment too soon. The disastrous two-tone helmet is getting the boot, and team executive Tom Coughlin reportedly had a hand in creating the team's new design, which will apparently be more traditional than the current set.
The new uniforms will be unveiled in April, around the time of the NFL draft, but there's no reason the rest of us have to wait that long to reimagine the Jags' look. So it's time for our latest Uni Watch challenge: Redesign the Jaguars.
Here are the ground rules:
Your entry must include a primary logo, full home and road uniforms (helmet, jersey, pants, socks) and a solid-colored uniform for Thursday night games. If you like, you can also include secondary logos, a throwback or alternate uniform, and a field design, but those aren't required.
You can maintain some of the team's current elements (the helmet logo, say, or the color scheme) or change everything. Up to you.
You're perfectly welcome to include a two-tone helmet as part of your uniform set if you like. But try to make it better than the outgoing design.
Your designs can be created in any digital or analog medium (Illustrator, Photoshop, crayon, whatever) and can be submitted in any standard digital format (JPG, PDF, TIFF, etc.). You can also create a video presentation, upload it to YouTube, and submit the YouTube link as your entry.
The files you submit should be named after yourself (PaulLukas.jpg, for example). If you're submitting multiple files, please either number them (PaulLukas1.jpg, PaulLukas2.jpg, etc.) or use some other designation (PaulLukas-homeuni.jpg, PaulLukas-logo.jpg, etc.). Files that don't follow this format will not be considered.
In keeping with longstanding Uni Watch chromatic policy, entries with even a hint of purple will not be considered.
Email your entry to Uni Watch HQ. If you have more than one concept, feel free to enter as many times as you like.
Deadline: Friday, Feb. 23, 7 p.m. ET.
The best entries will be showcased in an upcoming Uni Watch column. Good luck!
