    Forgotten classic uniforms

    I prefer the current Penguins logo but the RoboPenguin era jerseys were better. They have a simplified, consistent striping pattern. What they're wearing today might match the Lemieux era but it's to a fault. No team in 2018 would choose to look like that, with the mismatched sleeves and that ugly yellow hem stripe on the white jersey.

    Thanks for the kinds of words! Here are #10 and #11 #10 LA Clippers #11 Dallas Mavericks I think you can see what I am doing with both of these teams. I wanted to do something different for both of them but I found myself recreating their current jerseys anyway (or, in the case of the Clippers, their previous sets). Obviously a few changes. I think the Clippers really need to embrace powder blue; and with Dallas, I just updated the font to something that says 'Dallas' a little more (sort of like with Toronto, that means something a little bolder/thicker),

    Noted. Edited with a smaller wordmark, created a little more space between it and the side panel. Here is #8, Toronto Raptors And #9, Portland Trail Blazers I wanted to do Toronto in purple, however, the home whites looked really off, at least without some tweaking, so I "settled" for their All-Canadian red/black look which they rock pretty well. Added silver to differentiate them from the Bulls and Blazers, while hopefully the black keeps looking apart from Houston as well. I brought back the pinstripes (maybe also too Houston-y?) and the arching nameplate because I like those Barney Dinosaur elements, they keep their identity unique. And I altered their wordmark to a bolder font because what they're wearing now seems a little placeholder-y to me. Portland, I just based their look off of their amazing statement jersey. Remove the silver and lowed the name to appear under the number (just 'cause I think the back of the jersey looks little plain).

    And here are two more concepts while I am up. #6 Houston Rockets While I am a major fan of the Rockets re-incorporating yellow back into their identity, I feel Atlanta now "own" those colours so to speak, and my only idea for Houston in yellow is either the 94-95 Championship jerseys or a home-and-road version of their 2009 alternate. So I thought I would try and make red and silver really work for them because I do love those colours. I wanted to bring back the Steve Francis era pinstripes too because I loved those. #7 Brooklyn Nets Much like the Rockets, this is a merge of the Nets previous identities. I love their sleeved alternates and their Statement jersey; I love the old ABA Nets look done in black & white so that's what I went with, only replacing the stars with the old net pattern. It's not a unique design, I've seen it before, but I am big fan, I think it's the obvious move the team should make.

    Thanks for the feedback. I've edited Miami so hopefully the front number and wordmark appear more aligned and symmetrical. I also added a white stripe to the roads. I've also altered the font on the Warriors, removed the navy and hopefully made it look a little less cluttered and neater. And for fun, here is a Miami Vice rebrand for the Heat

    Agreed, the belt stripe doesn't look as good as I thought it would. I will clean it up. And I have to admit, I am not sure what the "MEM" logo is? Thanks for the feedback! Here is #4, Miami Heat I realised Miami, despite wearing the same uniforms for about 17-18 years, are still rocking a pretty modern look. I didn't want to change much, I couldn't think much either, but I did want to introduce an element that resembled these fantastic ABA throwbacks. I was a bit restricted by the template though and didn't know quite how to make the shorts match so I tweaked it to match their current set a little more as well leave extra room for the wordmark and numbers. And #5 Golden State Warriors I don't like basketball teams with logos in lieu of a simple wordmark, it looks wrong to my eyes. The thing that bugs me most about the Warriors recent success is that it means they probably won't rebrand for a few years yet, not that they don't still look good. But I think a simple 'Warriors' script would still look superiors. I wanted to the numbers to match these jerseys too. The shorts are inspired by their ill-fated yellow sleeved uniforms that I actually kind of liked and wish they did more with.

    2018 FIFA World Cup Kits

    Thought Japan would break out their white kit. Almost everyone else wore their clash. Strange.

    Oops. Thanks. I've fixed that, and updated Orlando to royal blue. Maybe not boring on its own but there are more blue teams than red, in blue the Sixers blend in more than stand out. Here it is in blue: And here is #3, the Memphis Grizzlies: The Grizzlies are a hard team to design for me. I know they need a redesign but I don't know what it should it be. With only two lifetime identities and three primary uniform sets, there's not a lot of history to draw from, which means designing a set almost from scratch which means everything looks alien to me. I went through about four different colour schemes (black & sky blue, black & gold, brown & gold, their current one) before I settled on bringing back the teal, red and bronze because it's the only unique identity that screams 'Grizzlies' even if it doesn't scream 'Memphis' per se and even if it mean there are now two teams wearing teal outside of the 1990s (and the Hornets wear that colour with more authority). I was partially inspired by their recent MLK uniform as well the sparseness of last season's City Jersey.

    I done goofed. I have been reading it as 'Philia' for a long time apparently without ever questioning it. fixed.

    I've never done NBA concept series like this before. I've only done court designs but never jerseys. Big shout out to Hoopladawg87 for sharing one of his templates with me, and to Daniel Ramone for creating it. This series is mostly a tweak of what teams were wearing during the 2017/2018 season. Home and roads only for now. I hope to finish it. Up first, the Philadelphia 76ers No major changes here. Just reverting the roads to red because blue looks a little boring them. Updating the wordmark to match the font on their 2017/18 City Jersey which I think makes the jersey looks less cluttered (thin wordmark makes more room for thick side panels). #2. Orlando Magic Inspired by the T-Mac era jerseys, as 90s as they are, I think the stars could work (if Atlanta's triangles are any indication of a watermark pattern would look like) and they're a more unique identifier than pinstripes (which I think are a little tired). I also switched the blue out for a darker shade which I think suits a Florida team more. Feedback welcome of course.

    2018 NFL Redesigns (19/32)

    My bad, that was supposed to be silver. Edited it, hopefully it looks lighter. Long time with no update. Here is Carolina. And San Francisco. And Miami, With Miami, I know their recent upgrade is popular but I am actually a bit of a fan of the navy, I think it balance the orange and aqua. However, I think they look better with a block font than their modern curvature And Atlanta (I thought I posted this one) .

    Carolina Hurricanes Unveil New Black Third Uniform

    That's a hilarious chest logo. Leaves so much awkward, empty space.

    Memphis Grizzlies Appear to be Tweaking Logos

    Every year the Grizzlies don't rebrand is a disappointing year. Same with the Rockets.
