    Is there anyway the mods would consider a one week ban for anyone criticizing a team's colors based on the color of the animal they're named after?

    The League has a surprising amount of orange, so I've done away with it for this logo. In place of orange is a much more Miami Vice color scheme. I've combined elements of a few different Miami logos. Not a lot going on here, simplicity was my goal. Miami Dolphins:

    It's the right move, good they are doing it. I wasn't one of the ones fighting for it to be removed, but yea it's time to move past crappy caricatures that look offensive.

    That's because Lucky the Leprechaun is a Leprechaun. Leprechauns are not real, unlike Native Americans. So the comparison breaks down pretty quickly.

    I remember a few years back when we had a thread about the upcoming change in the Vikings' uniform. In one video the team released, there was what appeared to be a gym bag way in the background. A discussion began about the stripes on a strap on the gym bag. This discussion went on for two pages.

    Here we go guys, a new thread that is a follow up to my NHL 90s series last summer. This time we are doing basketball. The NBA in the 90s was a wild time for designs. Teams like the Raptors, Hawks, Bucks, and Grizzlies are the teas that stand out to me but there were many other fantastic and crazy designs. I plan to make a concept for every team in the league with designs similar to the ones I just mentioned. I plan to do all defunct teams that were around in the 90s as well as teams that are around now but weren't in the 90s. Without further ado, lets start this off with two concepts. Golden State Warriors. Golden State had some wild jerseys with bold lightning bolts on them n the 90s. I decided to take this to the max and use the bolts as a full jersey and shorts design. Also present is a gradient in the numbers and the road jersey being a red to orange gradient. Definitely out there but I really like how they turned out. Second up is the Portland Trailblazers Portland has always stayed with their sash design and while I do really like it, I wanted to try something implementing their logo. I made it the main design aspect with the lines extending much farther than usual and eve on to the back of the jersey. I could have seen something like this being a reality in the 90s. So there's the kickoff for this new series. I am extremely excited to be doing this and I'm hoping you all enjoy it as much as the NHL series.

    Absolutely perfect. To my mind, not only the finest uniform that the Jacksonville Jaguars have ever worn, but one of the best looking uniforms in the history of the NFL.

    I like them using the cap "D" on the jerseys, but they really should have designed a new Old English "D" to work in both applications. Shameless self-plug, but I'd suggest something like this: It's light enough to work on a cap and bold enough to work on a jersey without deviating too much from their previous insignias.

    The Battle of Seattle "I love the smell of potential expansion in the morning". The rumour of Expansion is great for the creative juices. It offers up a new entity; a clean slate; a blank canvas. I'm gonna putter around with 9 different concepts. I'll explore the logos, uniforms, mascots, promotions and merchandise for each one. Some of the stuff, you'll have seen before in previous threads, but there'll be a ton of new material. It'll be a long one, so get comfortable, and let the "Battle of Seattle" begin... First up...The Seattle Metropolitans...

    I think the Nike run in the NBA has been a disaster so far. This whole “Teams can wear whatever they want” experiment is terrible. Then there’s the Lakers who aren’t even wearing their classic purple jerseys. That’s like the Yankees not wearing pinstripes for the majority of the season.

    Thank you guys... Surfer, it's great to hear that I "inspired" you to get better at illustrator. Good luck with it and thanks for letting me know! You might be right h, although I think that somehow, "Metropolitans" is still in the running. Thanks Bruins...I'm planning a "funky quirk" sort of thing with the alts later... I have a little more respect for the name after I read this excellent article on the Mets in the NY Times (here). It's quite the story of how the Patricks basically put together a team of hockey mercenaries and then demolished the Montreal Canadiens to be the first team in the U.S. to win the Stanley Cup..."in Seattle of all places!" Thank you B-mer...I'm thinking of using the Seahawks colours on the Totems... Hello darkp!... I agree with you on your sec logo observation. I've made a change... I hear you Zeus...I've beefed-up the waist stripe and changed the secondary. Thanks. It's a good debate guys...How many established logos wouldn't fly in today's market. Many wouldn't make it past the first sketches! The old Mets' "S" defies all modern design principles. darkp's right on this one. the "S"'s history makes it a contender in spite of its ungainliness. Okay...you guys are right... the sec doesn't match the primary. I kinda took the easy path which doesn't work so I went back to the drawing board and had another look at some "ArtDeco" elements... After reading the above-mentioned article, I figured that the nod to the "Metropolitans" was just as much an acknowledgment to the event, as it was to the team... so I created more of a "Tribute" logo, featuring the year of the historic Stanley Cup win, a couple of crossed hockey sticks, and the letters "M" and "S". I also tightened up the primary a tad... I beefed up the striping on the unis...they were looking a little too "Leaf-ish", so I put the side-arm stripes up on the shoulders... The 1920-ish vibe could be an interesting look for promotions, merch, etc.... I photo-shopped up a "Rocketeer" poster to demonstrate...

    I wanted the Ravens logo to feel more like the Carolina Panthers logo: a black creature coming from the shadows, only the highlights lending an idea as to what was really there. I also wanted to put that much beloved Maryland/Baltimore flag in there, but not go Maryland Terrapins over the top with it, thus the beak. A black to purple iridescent helmet - not too over the top with the iridescence- with metallic gold highlights.

    I absolutely loved what New Era started in Minnesota at the 2014 MLB All Star Game by designing special All Star caps that honored the host team. The potential was set up for new caps every year on All Star night to tell a different story about a host team's uniform history or local culture, while also allowing the game a rare chance to have some fun and get creative with their usually sacrosanct brands -- not to mention increasing merchandise sales in the process. Unfortunately, that was a trend that only lasted two seasons. So in an effort to show what could have been, each season I take it upon myself to continue what New Era once started and design my own city-centric concept caps for the MLB All Star Game. For the 2018 ASG in Washington D.C., I dipped into the city's baseball past to help inspire the cap design, while also taking cues from that time period and D.C.'s world-famous cherry blossoms to create a campaign that celebrates the nation's capital as well as the national pastime. To view the entire cap collection along with additional merchandise, plus a look inside the design process and inspiration, visit my website.

    You're gonna bite my head off for this, but I think the retro stuff gets Miami right more than the modern stuff does, both in uniforms and creative. I hate the Dolphins' uniforms. I think the team on the field looks terrible. It's easy to overlook them because they're in the Roll Over For The Patriots Division but for all but two games a year they look terrible. So it's a testament to your abilities as a designer that you can do such good product around a team that looks as bad as the Dolphins do. All the social media art with Steelfish or a typeface that looks like Steelfish is very sleek and modern and clean, the execution is perfect, but it's missing some Dolphins je ne sais quoi. They're the oldest sports team in Florida and I like when aesthetics reflect that as international and modern as Miami has become, the Dolphins remain a product of a point in time. I also like South Florida's crummy pastel houses and dated strip malls, so maybe that's just a problem I have. Frankly, I blame the 1972 team for my belief that the team should be preserved in kitschy amber.

    Thanks for all of the positive comments to start this off. I'm going to go back and do an update for Portland eventually but in the meantime, here is the next team. San Antonio Spurs Obviously, I had to go with the fiesta colors for this one. It uses a pinstripe design with all of the fiesta colors from the logo. Black i also used as a dominant color in the logo and numbers. There is also a pattern on the shorts which comes from their 90s alternate logo. The colored jersey is something way out of the ordinary for the spurs but I have always wanted to try something with these colors and i'm pretty happy with how they turned out.

    This is such a tired arguement. Eagles aren't Green, Seahawks (Ospreys) aren't blue, Buffaloes aren't blue, Falcons aren't red etc. etc. etc. It's sports. Have some fun.

    They were both fantastic secondary logos that neither team is using anymore. It's a shame. They fit in that sleeve space so well too. I've joked since I was a kid that every year the best of the 4 cat teams should get a trophy of their own because none of them are ever winning the Super Bowl.
