    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.

    It's an indeterminate amount of time in the future. For whatever reason indoor team volleyball has exploded in popularity and a league has formed to capitalize on the sport's growth. Philadelphia Founders New Orleans Night Owls, Version 2 Sacramento Smash Voleibol Miami Denver Miners Cincinnati Royals Tigres de Mexico, Version 2 Houston Mission Seattle Spikers Brooklyn Knights Quasar Los Angeles These are their identities.

    They look washed out in game action but look great in a photo shoot and/or photoshopped? Does that sound like a really strong argument to you? When you Google image search "knicks orange jersey", the Kobe photoshop doesn't even come up, so apparently you wanted to find that picture, rather than it being random.

    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...

    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...

    Have you watched the Lakers play at all this year? Or any of the last few years, for that matter? LeBron would probably carry that team to the WCF since he's that good, but they'd just get swept (or, if they're lucky, gentlemen's swept) by Golden State and not make the Finals at all. Even with "Star #2." Realistically, nobody's beating the Warriors for the next few years. LeBron might as well just stay in Cleveland where he can at least keep the Finals appearance streak going.

    The enlarged D is only silly because it's new, and you're looking at it side-by-side with the old one. It's more in-line with the size of most cap logos, and while I personally prefer the small one as well, I probably wouldn't have noticed the change without a side by side. I'm with you on the D though - shoulda kept the jersey one. Felt that way at first, still do.

    It has been a week and I’m still pissed about the Tigers change. If they HAD to unify the logos, they should have picked the jersey D over the hat D, because 1) the jersey D has a historical precedent of being on the cap and 2) the jersey D looks better on the cap than the hat D looks on the jersey (too right-heavy of a design to be placed on the left chest). ...and this is just silly looking:

    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.

    I am trying to push myself into new styles of design in 2018 Fraser Davidson's Tom Brady logo video inspired me to start logo-meets-portrait designs I want to develop my highlighting and overall economy of design, so any feedback is appreciated!!

    That’s the real problem. Adidas shouldn’t be recycling that design for anyone, whether it be a pre-match shirt for their big clubs like RM, Juve, etc., or a match kit for an MLS club like NYCFC. It’s patterned after the Colombia 1990 home kit, so it actually has some significance to Colombia, but it has zero significance to the clubs Adidas is recycling the design for. You wouldn’t see Adidas recycling the classic Germany ‘88 home kit design for anyone but Germany, so it should be the same for Colombia as well.

    You actually do know this one. John Lynch is correct. I. Buccaneers (1) and Broncos (8). II. Lynch played at Stanford while Bill Walsh was the Cardinal head coach. III. His first three years with the Bucs were the last three years of a record setting stretch of ten loss seasons. IV. The Broncos and added Lynch to their Ring of Honor in October of 2016. Tampa Bay added him their Ring of Honor in November of 2016. V. Was anyone not surprised that the 49ers hired Lynch to be their GM?

    Aside from speical occasions, MLS clubs generally don’t have designated pre-match shirts and instead just use their training shirts for that purpose. Plus, the leaked NYCFC replica jersey has the MLS badge on the sleeve, which is something that training gear, travel gear, anthem jackets, etc. don’t have. I’d say it’s definitely their new secondary.

    There's no LeBron/Kobe rivalry. LeBron didn't make it past the Celtics or Orlando during Kobe's peak Laker years, and Kobe didn't make it back during the Heat years. I think they operate in pretty different spheres of influence; Kobe is the new Jordan for a big part of the NBA while LeBron will have that role for the next guys after he retires. Phil isn't there anymore but Dolan is. I think LeBron has seen enough dumbass ownership for one lifetime. I can't see him or anyone else that can really move the needle on a franchise willingly moving to the Knicks; there's just too much baggage there and that team has to be built through smart trades and the draft. I can't see them being a free agency destination for another year. James/Ball/Ingram/George/Kuzma (four forwards and a guard? Why not?) would be fun to watch. I think Clarkson is gone, but I wish Randle would come back. He may be a real Draymond-esque guy (without the distance shooting that Green has since lost) next season and is turning into a pretty reliable 18/10 guy when he starts. I think Golden State has two more years. Steph's ankle will give out eventually, Draymond is slipping, and I can't imagine they'll be able to afford their nucleus for forever. Plus, outside of LeBron, people don't really go to the Finals four and five years in a row. Three tends to be the max for a variety of reasons. That said, I think Durant is probably the best player in the league right now and the most adaptable, so who knows. Houston is the best spot for LeBron to show up and win. It's too bad that team is in that city; it'd be more fun in LA.

    As I recall, the Knicks lost every game the orange alts were used in and the players regarded them as bad luck. Of course, it had nothing to do with the roster being abysmal.

    Agree. Nike's attempt to translate the Rockets' jersey to their template went wrong in every way. They literally look like they're wearing K-mart level generic knock-offs out there - it's embarrassing. I don't care what colours Houston go with but they really need to build uniforms from scratch. Forgetting the switch to Nike as well, those uniforms are horribly dated too.

    Yeah I remember feeling that New Era was trying to fix something that wasn’t broken. That opinion changed as soon as I had to replace my wool Cards cap because it had shrunken down. The poly is the superior product.

    Thank you so much! I appreciate it. I'm gonna go ahead and wrap this series up before all the Super Bowl festivities, starting off with the Tennessee Titans! Logos -With the Titans likely coming out with a uniform redesign in the coming months, it would be interesting to possibly revisit this design afterwards. For now I dropped the fire logo in place of the Greek shield which has been seen on these Concepts boards and the Titans new mascot. I also embraced the wordmarks seen in their social media graphics. Uniforms -This set is very much inspired by @upperV03, so credit goes to him. Like with the wordmarks, I updated the font to be more bold & modern. -The shoulder stripe is a very unique element for the Titans, so I wanted to keep the idea but update it with a more Oilers-like stripe. -I wanted to keep a white helmet for the Titans, but I really like the way the navy alternate looks being light-blue heavy. -Color Rush drops navy and gives fans the Oilers type look they've been looking for. And now, to wrap it up, the Washington football team... Logos -Yes, I changed the name to Redhawks... it's been argued about plenty on these boards but personally I think the name is long overdue to change. -Logowise, I don't really mind the current primary, but I switched to Washington's "R" logo to better accomodate with the name. The wordmarks are also changed only in name. Uniforms -This set was heavily inspired by @BrandMooreArt's version of Washington, especially with the wampum helmet logo which is just genius. -Striping consistency is the name of the game in this one, with the sleeve cuffs, pants, and socks all matching with every combo. -The number font now matches the wordmark. -The Color Rush goes all-burgundy, but also embraces the old gold because that's a look I enjoy seeing on occasion. And that'll do it! Thanks to anyone who followed a long and commented, it really helps me to be able to share with you guys and communicate on how to improve designs. I know I had to go sort of fast through this one, but I wanted to get everything in before the Super Bowl, which I somehow did. If anyone wants to share some comments on some of their favorite teams or what they thought of the series overall, that would be cool! Otherwise, I think I'm gonna be taking a break from designing for a bit, but I'll see you all around!

    The Seattle Metropolitans The "Metropolitans" were Seattle's team in the old Pacific Coast Hockey Association (1915-1924). They were the first American team to win the Stanley Cup, when they defeated the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey Association in 1917. As the "Mets", they could just re-work their funky old 1917 unis... ...which would be cool, but let's try something different. I found a font by Josep Kelava of Australia called "Metropolis". It's a 1920-ish, Art Deco style that suggests skyscrapers... I reworked the "M" to make it a bit more Seattle-specific, and for the secondary, I designed a different version of the old "S" with the cascading S-E-A-T-T-L-E letters. As for colours...I'm a sucker for crisp and clean, one-colour-plus-white palettes. In the NHL we have red and white (Detroit), and blue and white (Toronto, Tampa), so why not a green and white entry. The "two-line" logo is reflected in the striping on the uniforms...
