  1. 2016 MLS Jerseys

    NYCFC just posted this teaser on their social media channels:   Not sure how this jibes with this earlier leak:
  2. New Uber logo/look

    Rider icon, partner icon, wordmark   Wired has a deep-dive on the new look for Uber, which includes local color palettes by country. It was heavily guided by the CEO, which I can say from personal experience, is usually a bad idea that traumatizes designers and produces compromised work.   Here's the breakthrough moment in the narrative:  
  3. 16-17 Soccer Kits

    Possible NYCFC third kit leak going around Twitter:
  4. Teams named for Brands

    The one that stands out to me is one that didn't happen - the infamous attempt to sell the Grizzlies' naming rights to FedEx in conjunction with their move to Memphis. I have to wonder if uniform advertising enthusiast Adam Silver would be more open to something like this than his predecessor.
  5. NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

    The Bulls are holding a contest to name their Hoffman Estates-based D-League team, launching next season.
  6. NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

    Then they better get to amending, because they broke ground on the renovations today. I don't think even an abominably poor seating chart would prompt the new owners who bought a team located in New York City to leave a favorable 25-year lease in a brand new (for all of its other flaws) arena for the suburbs. Regardless, there is already a plan built into the construction to reduce capacity on an event-by-event basis.
  7. NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

    The Nets will announce their (eventually) Nassau Coliseum-based D-League team tomorrow, rumored to be the Long Island Nets. Continuing New York's creative D-League tradition of putting a team in the suburbs and giving them the parent team's name!
  8. NBA D-League Still Needs to Expand

    Two more new entrants are rumored for next season: The Brooklyn Nets are expected to place their D-League team in the post-renovation Nassau Coliseum, which will seat between 4,000 and 8,000 in a basketball configuration. And the Chicago Bulls are said to be starting a team at Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, IL. It looks like they're going to not going to play in the Coliseum itself, but in a 2,300-seat fieldhouse that's part of the complex, according to the FAQ on their website (PDF file).
  9. 2015-16 Soccer Kits and News

    Philadelphia Union announce their USL team will revive the Bethlehem Steel name:
  10. 2015-16 Soccer Kits and News

    I wouldn't be shocked to see Manchester City go with a roundel with Gotham typeface to bring their branding in line with that of their subdivisions:
  11. 2015-16 College hoops

    Just saw the full kit in an email from an SU store. The shorts are...something, but hey, no platinum!
  12. Stumbled on this from a Adrian Wojnarowski tweet - it looks like a Las Vegas-based developmental basketball league is launching shortly. From their website: League logo: Teams: This is giving me a vibe of one of those Concept Forum projects where the backstory of the league and teams is more thought-out than the designs. Very strong early-to-mid-2000s look to these too.
  13. The Worst Sports Logo Ever

    I recently came across this gem from Israel's Basketball Premier League... Behold, Hapoel Eilat B.C.:
  14. NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

    It looks like a very similar design on the lettering (with NETS added), but lighter "grout" on the black part, and without the white tiling behind the black:

    Closeup photo from a Nets blogger at today's shootaround: I love it, and I wish touches like this were present in other aspects of their branding.
