I am a graphic designer and teacher that is working on my Master of Fine Arts online with Savannah College of Art and Design. I am in a class where we are learning about typography and mark making. For my main project we must do a type analysis of anything of our choosing. Well obviously the long history of the NFL has me jumping at the opportunity to use it for my project. I want to cover four teams that have a long history. But I need help on this so here is my request, I am looking for high res photos of signage, uniforms, etc of the name Giants or New York Giants from as far back as possible to today. Specifically on the name not so much the logo. I am collecting this into a book talking about the time periods that changes were made and possible reasons behind those changes but it will not be made for sale, this is purely a school project and I would be happy to send you my file when I am done if you are interested. You would get credit in the project for providing pictures and if it is ever made for sale then we could talk about purchase of the rights to those pictures. This project is due in 8 weeks so I have to get started on it ASAP. I have contacted the PR dept but just want to cover every base I have access to at this point.

I am also going to be contacting the Redskins, Bears and Lions because all have longevity and history and will round out the book nicely with rivalries as well. I would really appreciate any and all help. I can give you my school email or number if you like but think this could be a really cool project when I am done. I can also give you a link to a drop box so that you can see previous student's work.

Thank you in advance!

You might want to check the NY Giants Graphics Section Forum where I will move this thread.

Hi Everyone! I would still love to have some help on this project. I thought of an idea to see the change in the way the name Giants is shown over the years is on Pennants and/or Game Day magazines. I want to break it down by decade so if I could get at least one picture of one of those things from each decade I would be good to go. I can find a few things online but not enough to give a good report. I am please asking for the Giants fandom to help out an NFL fan and blow away the other books. Again this is not for resale and is purely for a scholarly assignment in grad school.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!
