    Thank you, Pengin. Much appreciated! A complete set of five Nike uniforms (Association, Icon, Statement, City, Throwback) will be posted next week.

    Thanks a lot, WarriorFight. I totally agree about your three teams that need some rebranding badly asap. The Clippers previous identity looked kind of baseballish because of the script. Yet, it was a unique identity, even though it wasn't the most creative one at all. But, compared to what they have now, it has looked lightyears better. OKC's mark is a joke that most of us have gotten used to. But what about the Brooklyn Nets? It will always look like some clipart – which is definitely not a good thing. Their uniforms look fine to me, but they need a complete logo package overhaul, since they have the cheesiest, most amateurish set in the entire league. I also don't dislike Indiana's identity a bit. Yet, I never liked their roundel logo which, under Nike, has become their (international) primary mark. I just always thought that the "P" inside that circle is too small. Plus, it doesn't help that it's a cursive letter, which in my view makes the whole thing look even more clumsy, amateurish, and like a last minute thought. Their "P" looks good, clean and totally fine to me as a stand-alone mark, but I just don't like the fact that they've put it in the middle of a circle.

    Just a note about the new color scheme: I decided to give the Pacers a more bluish, more saturated navy, a color that looks more like the one that the Pacers have used during their famous and highly popular Reggie Miller era in the 1980's and 1990's. It would definitely make a visual difference during televised games. Yet, I wanted to avoid them looking too much like the Golden State Warriors, so the new shade is also not too saturated, and not almost royal blue. In order to separate them even more from the uber-team from Oakland, their shade of gold is now a touch warmer than before – since I like this kind of yellow/gold very much. Silver is mainly functioning as an accent color in logos and uniforms, but, again to avoid looking too much like the Warriors primary court, it is much more prominent in the alternate court design.

    "Only" because of its very significant socio-historical context, you have aroused my interest.

    Thanks a lot, Greg. I've now enlarged the checkered pattern in all logos, except for the roundel. The squares are now almost twice as large as before. I think it should work this way. Images have been updated. Thanks a lot, Shadojoker. Much appreciated! Thank you, chapper. Yes, a complete set of uniforms and court designs – sometime in July.

    Thanks a lot, vtgco. I understand what you mean when you're talking about logos like this one being used at smaller sizes. But my reply to that is: so what? Logos aren't primarily designed to look good or great at small or tiny sizes. They're primarily designed to look good at bigger sizes, namely on courts or fields, on uniforms, clothes, merchandise, during animated graphics on television, in printed publications like sports magazines or books, etc. The most important technical requirement on a logo is its easy reproducibility at smaller sizes, but not really if a logo still looks good or great when it's for instance printed or displayed on a device in a microscopic size, as it was depicted in your post. I chose this size of the squares in that checkered pattern for one reason: it's eventually the cleanest look, since most squares, white and black, inside that quarter oval are completely visible, instead of being covered by the navy seam lines, to eventually end up with too many tiny spots of white or black left, which would clutter up the overall look. A basketball inside the "P" wouldn't look good, since the letter is a square blockletter with a checkered pattern, but the ball is round. To me, that'd be a no-go. It doesn't harmonize. Thanks a lot, SplashBoogie. 1) I tried to explain to @vtgco why the checkered flag pattern looks like that. 2) Nope – not in my case. Motion lines are ALWAYS behind the object, means that motion lines also somehow represent the past if you will. A drawn flying plane has its motion lines always behind the wings, behind the tail section. My Pacers-P initial logo moves from right to left, with motion lines behind it, to its right. The Lakers primary logo for example has its motion lines to the letter's left, since the "LAKERS" wordmark moves from left to right in front of a stagnant basketball. About the color silver: I chose to not drop it, since I also as a consequence had to drop the whole ABA basketball idea (three colors – white, blue, red). Since the checkered parts also include white, I had to stick to silver in order to eventually have three colors – gold, checkered, silver. Why not navy? It just doesn't look good at all to use navy for that basketball. Plus, it's somehow apposite to the Indy/motorsports theme, since silver is comparable to chrome.

    I have done that before. The "B" looks terribly distorted and almost like an "8".

    I don't need to try it, since you wouldn't recognize the logo as "SF" anymore. You're mistakenly taking the outlined "S" and "F" for three-dimensional letters, which they're not. That's why I'm saying that both letters are on one level, regardless whether the one letter has outlines crossing the other letter or not. The only three-dimensional part of my logo is the three-dimensional "shadow" behind/underneath the initials.
