Earlier this year I received an email from Coach Morgan of Coahoma Community College. He was wanting to do something new for the new helmets his team was getting for this upcoming season.
This is the schools logo on the old silver helmet.
Here are a few of the Concepts I came up with for CCC
Coach Morgan decided to go with this look
Here is the helmet that was used but below are all the other ideas I gave to Murray State sadly they went conservative. I really wanted the front facing logo looking at the defender or lineman from every Murray State player but as a designer you never have final say and I was told that it was too much. Link to stripes only
The corn dome is fun. Yes, that is a pad of butter by the N. If this helmet were ever to make the field I would want the team to hand out butter pad reward stickers to the players as the game happens because you have to butter the corn.
This set of helmets showcase the Blackshirts. Their logo is a skull in a helmet so why not put a skull on the helmet. They look mean and you know the players would go ape shit.
It might be hard to see but on the helmet above the skull is still there but the idea would be to have a matte helmet with a reflective skull or flip it the other way. This still would allow the Blackshirts and their logo the skull to be on the helmet but it wouldn’t be as obvious as some of the other Blackshirts designs
