  1. 2016-17 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    I feel like Florida could cut the shield off before the "Florida" or "Panthers" part and look better then what they're about to unveil. Like, much better.
  2. New Sacramento Kings Logo Unveiled

    Hopefully this helps illustrate the depth that they are creating (or not creating, depending on your eyes). The gray portions of the crown are in the back, the purple in the foreground.
  3. New Sacramento Kings Logo Unveiled

    I thought we all saw the three points in front and the two in the back. Guess I was wrong. The weird blocks are kind of acting like a shadow. It makes total visual sense to me but I'll admit it does look a little funky. I still love everything about this. They've hit a home run in my mind. Now to the colors...all options seem to have a tiny flaw except for just sticking with what they have now. Purple/Lt. Blue would look good but I think an NBA team with a marketing department will force Black to be part of that palette, just like Milwaukee did. That would essentially just leave them replacing their currentSilver with Lt. Blue.I think Purple fits them way too well to consider going straight throwback, and I think Purple/Red would be a mistake unless they lean heavily on a Purple and Gray scheme and use Red just for trim. I don't know, I'm up in the air. I guess replace silver with light blue and call it a day.
  4. I kind of hope either A: my fellow Celtics fans pass around a virtual collection plate and pay to keep the space blank, or B: TD buys the space, and puts just the TD logo, at about an inch tall, in team colors (white "TD" on green patch on green jersey and vice versa). But even then, the NBA is benefitting from this behavior. I'll be interested to see if some teams say no, but given the prevalence of sleeved jerseys I don't think many teams push back very hard. Here's hoping for fan riots and protests which make this program at least stall for the time being.
  5. NBA- Raptors: Only use one black jersey. I don't care which one. Celtics: Drop all alts except St. Patrick's Day Knicks: Make armhole trim go all the way around. Nets: Use star trim alt, sleeveless, as basis for new jerseys. Sixers: Win sometimes. Cavs: One wine jersey, one gold jersey, one white. That's it. Pacers: Drop Hickory alt. Pistons: All alts are dropped in favor of a red version of their away uni. Bulls: No gray alt. Bucks: Replace black altwith a cream one based on the regulardesign. Heat: No crazy alts. Black, red, white. Hawks: Replace volt with athletic gold. Hornets: Match number colors to wordmark colors on all jerseys, complete with outline. Wizards: Surprisingly I don't have anything. Magic: Make side panels on home uniforms blue. Thunder: Stick to home and away jerseys. Blazers: Use wordmark and number treatment from red alt on all jerseys. Jazz: Take "Utah" off their butts. Nuggets: Go full-time skyline. Wolves: Bring green back. Warriors: White at home, Blue on the road, gold throwback, thats it. Clippers: Home design for all jerseys. Kings: Lean into the retro design. Suns: Match numbers and wordmark on black alt. Lakers: No more Hollywood Nights alt. Spurs: No more camo. Mavs: Make logos/court match jersey colors. No more black anywhere. Grizzlies: Add back in the number inlines on all jerseys. Rockets: White home, red away, gray alt. No yellow or black with this identity. Pelicans: Put "Pelicans" or "NOLA" on all jerseys. "New Orleans" comes out way too small.
  6. University of Buffalo

    Other than the font (including that weird A) andthe one color Chicago Bulls knockoff logo I actually like this look. That is to say, I like the UB still and the use of just blue and the move away from whatever they were trying to do before.
  7. NBA Changes 2016-17 Season

    I'm not going to say "I could've done that in 5 minutes!" because I know the process at landing at this design would take me alone forever. But I am genuinely curious about how much time, how many people, how many meetings, how many tests, how much money, etc...actually went into arriving here. Not saying it's a terrible logo, because it isn't. It's minimalistic and could work depending on how else they build their brand. I just wish this information was readily available, it interests me.
  8. ECHL in Worcester unveils team name & logo

    Too detailed and busy for me. The HC part could be a little unique if they didn't relegate it to a tiny detail in an already detailed logo. If you're going that route then lean into it. No city name, be bold. This is slapped on.
  9. Sports branding design speak

    I always kind of thought they meant that the player, while wearing the helmet, could face you while in the dark shadows and blend right in. Therefore, the helmet keeps them stealthy like a panther. You'll have to pretend that a white chinstrap blends into the darkness though.
  10. The Longest Breakaway & The Ballad of the Lucky Loonie

    Amazing. Loved it. Not a canadian, but it's amazing anyway. Great work.
  11. 2015-16 College hoops

    I personally don't think they look THAT bad. The shoulder inserts bother me more, aesthetically. The real problem I have, and I think others feel the same way, is the templates that adidas/nike/whoever pushes upon all programs at the same time. Is this a bad look? Not really, for the right program. When every school playing has a similar setup then, yeah, it's a bad look.
  12. NBA Modeled After 1980's Pistons Logo

    I think the best way to improve the legibility is to consider it a three color logo. Primary color outside, secondary color inside, tertiary color trim and lettering.
  13. New Kentucky Logo

    Welp, can't unsee that ever! Does it have something to do with their biggest rival school having a bird mascot? Kind of literally saying/showing," the birds"?
  14. Ugh, Navy/Orange/White/Navy vs Silver/White/White/Lt. Blue . Too many light colors for me. Wish the Panthers were allowed to go black against the orange. Or go crazy and pair their color rush jerseys with silver pants. Or even white jerseys with color rush pants and black socks. I don't know, I'm dreaming now.
