    I wouldn't hate that idea if it was confined to a side stripe, and it was on a Suns uniform. On the Jazz, it will be a spectacular catastrophe.

    @DNAsports I don't think you realise just how many times a lot of us have had to hear that "Utah, Charlotte, and New Orleans should swap names" argument. It's been trotted out so often that I'm not sure I would oppose making it a banable offence.

    If they switched to the woven zig zag stripes like the Yankees use then they wouldn't look pink. Do that and go with raglan sleeves and then we're talking. As for retro gear being more popular, of course it is. If they switched, then the current gear would eventually become more popular and people would be having the exact same discussion about it.

    I decided to modernize the current Texas Rangers identity. I always thought they have a good set of logos, but, since they've rebranded in 2003, they also aged over time. Current Texas Rangers primary mark 1 – Primary logo: No more drop shadow on the "T" initial. Bolder lines and a slightly broader typeface. New baseball seams. The two stars are now separately placed on a white background. 2 – Secondary logo: A modernized version of the 1994-2002 alternate logo. The two shades of silver are no longer part of the Rangers color scheme. 3 – Alternate logo: A revised version of the current alternate Texas flag logo being used on the Rangers uniforms. The bevel on the lone star has been removed, as well as the color silver.

    The Utah Jazz do NOT sponsor the Salt Lake City Jazz Festival; this is unforgivable.

    That's definitely not new... That's the uniform they debuted in the 2016 Alamo Bowl against TCU: And they wore that exact same combination again twice last season: And then wore the jerseys with different helmet/pant combinations an additional three times last season:

    I think I'm the only person here who legitimately hates the Jackets' new socks. They're too minimalist, it isn't going to show up on tv, and I don't really care that they match.

    Agreed, and most importantly, the high schools themselves should not be sanctioning it. That's the last thing a school should be doing. If zero-tolerance policies have kids getting suspended for a week (or expelled altogether) for a slapfight in the cafeteria, they should have less than zero tolerance for destroying people's brains.

    I believe Nike gave the teams two waistband options; a more conventional version, like the one on those Kings uniforms, and the ventilated waistband like the ones on Nike's latest basketball uniforms for college and international teams. The more conventional waistband can accommodate the side panel designs, while the ventilated version causes the side panel designs to stop just below it. The Kings, Thunder, and Pistons all went with the more conventional waistband: While the Pacers and Blazers are the only teams to go with the ventilated waistband so far:

    Yes. The people concerned about player health are selling snake oil. The NFL are the good guys always. I appreciate the different view, but, man.

    Black would indeed be different, but it wouldn't look great. Black and navy blue should never be used together.

    I think it's more like Big Tobacco. They lied for years, they stonewalled, they denied the science. Then they started to run out of denials, and turned to a "free choice" argument. In the end, we put all kinds of restrictions on cigarettes, levy financial penalties on those who profit from the product and keep kids away from them. Seems like we could do the same for football.

    Addressing the previous comments, I still wish Charlotte, New Orleans, and Utah all rotated nicknames when it was announced that Charlotte would take back the Hornets nickname. Charlotte Hornets Utah Bobcats New Orleans Jazz All three make logical sense. Now if the NBA could figure out the Wizards identity crisis.

    I still hate the hell out of the Magic wordmark/font of choice. The Magic have always been sort of a gag franchise ever since Dwight Howard took a dump on their hearts, but they deserve better from a design perspective. The 90s are what they should strive for, and the more Disney-fied they get, the better off they, and in turn the world, will be. Yet here we are.

    I don't really view this as a change, which is both good and bad. Good because the Trailblazers have one of the more timeless uniforms and logos in basketball, and that shouldn't be sacrificed on the behest of Phil Knight wanting to make his homestate team look like a kaleidoscope of garbage for the sake of challenging the design status quo by putting the Blazers in some overly ambitious trash-wrap. Lateral move, as someone said, with a TON of room for improvement, but emerging safely from a Nike rebrand, especially as an Oregon franchise, is a victory unto itself.

    As a lifelong fan of the team, I wouldn't be surprised if this is nothing more than just nothing. Josh Kroenke and Stan Kroenke are always behind when it comes to identity. The mountain logo should have been dropped 8 years ago, and the beautiful secondary should have smoothly replaced it. The newer unis were poorly marketed. Most fans didn't even notice the change, in fact, you go to a game and 90% of people still wear the jerseys from a few years ago. What this team needs is a concise branding plan and to get away from their lazy approaches in marketing. A color change is much needed. I pray for a better plan going forward.

    I assume you mean that you've never personally seen them wearing red? Because if not, I can assure you that red uniforms are nothing new for them:

    Well, the ghastly pride jersey will be gone for sure. And it's been reported by a few local reporters here that they're potentially getting a gold alternate to replace it. As far as everything else, I think it's highly likely that the other three uniforms stay and just make the switch to the Nike template. I hope not, as I've just never come around to this set at all, but I'm not expecting a big change. Here's what the team has released (Starks is team President): I will say that, despite personally not expecting any changes, Starks' choice of words was a little interesting. I don't know that he really had to say anything like that at all if it were just a simple template switch. But then again, he could simply be talking about how we'll love the new tech and such. Or love the new alternate(s). Who knows.

    Wtf is everyone's infatuation with Agency? It's such a god awful font that should have died off like Serpentine and somehow professional organizations insist on keeping it around.

    I love nearly everything about the Pacers' new identity so far. It just fits for a basketball hotbed like Indiana. It has a bit of a traditional flare, but it doesn't feel derivative of a more established team's identity. And the cornrow pattern helps bring in a bit of a modern touch, to keep with the name "Pacers." They aren't perfect but they hit all the right notes for me.

    They will! I just don't have an image of the "Portland" wordmark big enough to show on the logos part.

    Don't know how widespread this opinion is, but I think the Pacers' new duds are the best they've looked since at least the Flo-Jo uniforms of the '90s.

    I get why people want it, but the name Utah Jazz doesn't bug me. It never has & I'm fine with the Pelicans being used as a name for New Orleans... as well as the Hornets being back in Charlotte now that the Bobcats name is gone. So there's no real reason to change. Also, Jazz wasn't even chosen for the Music by New Orleans, but rather it's definition: collective improvisation, a common theme in Swing Music (A type of jazz music) & BASKETBALL. Now that's a clever name.

    Is this better? I agree it was a lot of black. Thanks! and yeah, I personally never really liked the Islanders logo that much. I feel like their best logo is the simple "NY" logo on the black jersey.

    Portland would be at least on one if not two of the jerseys, I just don't have a vector large enough to portray it. Here's a brown and mint version. I like it, but it makes me feel like the red is missing.

    Yea I'm currently in that sort of age range, and although I've heard a lot of nasty things, I've definitely never heard that said before, so I was surprised when it even came up as a possibility. I could try that. I do like having the red though. In the meantime, how does something like this look?

    Oh boy, apparently the Jazz might be wearing something similar to this next year, except with the colors flipped and probably more of a golden yellow: https://www.slcdunk.com/platform/amp/2017/7/30/16065232/nike-nba-uniforms-jerseys-utah-jazz-alternate-gold-to-orange-gradient

    Honestly, I'd transition into Inkscape (it's totally free and widely used). Forget this paint.net crap and be better for it. As far as your design goes, you've got to crawl before you can walk, and right now it looks like you're trying to slap NASCAR stickers on yourself while slithering at inches-per-second across Daytona. Here's 3 .pdf files that should hopefully give you at least a modest overview of understanding what good design is, how famous designs are successful, and what to strive for thematically to accomplish something you can be at least somewhat proud of: 1 - principles of graphic design 2 - logo design project (ignore the aspects of the project, but the advice is sound) 3 - 10 principles of logo design Again, none of these are necessarily design/logo canon or "According to Hoyle." Pump the brakes on vomiting concepts for a bit, and focus instead on honing a good, strong starting point. Start off in pencil and paper (or a tablet, etc - any simple as pie program or medium that you're comfortable in), and I encourage you - and this goes for any designer or artist - work on an idea for awhile, and then start completely over. Do this 4-10 times until you've got a nice splattering of designs, then put them all next to each other and not only will you see your progression as a designer from one to the next, but you'll likely find that old ideas you once coveted actually made some designs weaker. Anyway, that's just some general advice. Don't bother trying to put too much more lipstick on the pig that is your current design (no offense - we all start somewhere!). If design is something you really have a passion for, keep designing by all means; I simply feel you should arm yourself with knowledge before investing more time incrementally educating yourself in a bad piece of software. Learn to vector. Learn to love it. Don't be like me - I'm a photoshop slave. Good luck to you.

    I think they've been outstanding in the logo department, but I'm growing tired of the overused adjective-noun names.
