  1. Minnesota Timberwolves

    I'm really hoping one of the jerseys to be revealed is gray with white as the top of shoulders and bottom of shorts. The second line could be the green. Maybe ill mock it up later Think a gray wolf treking through the snow and the snow on its back.

    It definitely gives a marine feel. To be fair...Minnesota is the Land of 10,000 lakes. It may not be by the sea but there is plenty of credibility to a Marine inspired look for a team that represents Minnesota even if it is an odd direction. Hopefully the other two uniforms have more of a forest/wolf inspired appearance. I like a lot of what Minnesota is doing, but there has not been a cohesive presentation of the identity yet. That's the problem. They provided a micro site explaining a lot of the ideas of the logos and colors with videos, but then just they kinda just sent tweets with photos of the jerseys... Hopefully there is a nice summary at some point of the identity; The jerseys, the court, the logos, etc. which could shed light on some of the basis of ideas that have been presented so far, even if that concept isn't what people expected, it would provide insight.

    These jerseys are unique, but i wish there was a little more consistency between the sets, especially in terms of what the focus of the jersey is. The navy uniform has nice contrast with the white wordmark and number and lower stripe, and the shoulder ist a tonal change. So I tried to give the white uniform a similar effect by making the navy gray and the blue navy.

    Almost the entire Northwest Division could have a Navy Away Icon Jersey. OKC may even have a navy jersey of some kind. That would leave only Portland and they are black, so call it a wash, all of the NW Division teams could potentially have a dark navy/black jersey. Its interesting to see how many of the teams share similar colors, maybe something, maybe nothing, but color on color match ups won't work if the colors are the same...

    Oh but imagine this versus an "aurora green " Minnesota jersey....

  7. Wolves' rookie Justin Patton was introduced yesterday, of course no images of posing with new uniforms, but he did take photos decked out in random non-nike, non-adidas Wolves gear including an awesome varsity jacket. I also think its kinda cool that the fitbit logo almost comes across as a snowflake given the team is from Minnesota. Jimmy Butler is being introduced on Thursday in the Mall of America rotunda.

    This is basically what happened when the VIkings teased their unveiling in multiple photos over days; the yellow appeared to be a metallic gold and the purple a darker shade. People started freaking out, and getting exciting or disappointed, but when the uniforms were actually unveiled the colors were normal, it was just a result of how the photos were presented/filtered,.
  10. Iowa Energy to be rebranded?

  11. NBA Changes 2017-18

    new Wolves and Pistons logos and wordmarks on display at draft lottery.
  12. The timberwoves finalized their purchase of the Iowa Energy, given that the Wolves are in the middle of their brand refresh i would assume Iowa would follow suit soon after.

    I really like the redesign, the wolf feels more agile and grown up and less stylized than the abstracted pine tree jaggedness of old. The more I see the more I like. The wolves were smart to unveil the logo when they did. The ability to create interest in at a meaningless game to a team that hasn't made the playoffs in 13 years, is prettay prettay good. But the reality is they unveiled the primary logo for the entire brand, but thats it! Im sure the complications of Nike taking over probably played a large part in timing relative to selling merchandise with the swoosh on it. But now they are in this weird half old era half new era situation. In Thibs end of the year press conference his polo has one of the secondaries and the banner behind him still had to old front facing wolf. It sounded like they are taking a piecemeal approach to the unveiling of other logos, courts, work marks, etc. So hopefully when it comes time to reveal the uniforms they will have a more wholistic approach to the unveiling and re-present the logos. Also, the connection to the northern lights has the potential to be a unique video graphic package for the way content is displayed for this team. Really excited to see more.
