Over the course of 94 years, the Green Bay Packers have gone through dozens of changes to the team uniform – some good, some not-so-good.
But I came across this version of uniform created and promoted recently by Jesse Alkire, an artist and designer out of Chicago. His work is pretty inspiring. Keeping with the tradition of the current team uniform, Alkire offers some interesting changes – most notably to the striping, the look of the numbers and the socks.
He doesn’t do a lot of massive changes that we’ve seen through the years by various designers. Heck, even Ron Wolf had design changes in mind when he was with the team.
Alkire keeps the Packers tradition alive and in mind with his design – that’s a good thing.
Not only has Alkire worked with changes to the Packers uniform, but he gives his best shot with all 32 team. Take a look here and browse through all of the league’s uniform changes as proposed by Alkire. You can find the link to the proposals here.
Here is how Alkire describes the changes he’s proposed to the Packers uniform on his website. I’ve included it here:
“Consolidated striping into two consistent elements that are unique to thePackers, applied throughout to both home and road uniforms. Rugged number type inspired by the team’s wordmark.”
So, we’re wondering if the NFL and Nike are watching an listening.
