Giving the University of California’s helmet design a more “neon” look, the designers of this helmet kept the standard “Cal” cursive text, and placed it in an enlarged neon-looking yellow layout across the entire side of the helmet. To help accentuate that Cal, the navy blue was lightened up a bit, and given elements of white to mimic the bright blue California sky.
Another helmet design that takes the current design, flips around the colors, and then gives it a little bit of a modern treatment. The yellow text of “Cal” is now the dark navy blue that was on the helmet, and vice versa. Add in some shading onto the yellow all over the helmet, and you have a great alternative to the usual Golden Bears helmet.
