  1. Jersey Mocks for My School

    Hey everyone, I work at a middle school where I am a teacher's aid. I often help out the basketball coaches with practice and run scoreboard/announce at games. The coach told me that they are looking at getting some new uniforms for the 7th grade program. These are just mockups in photofiltre. If they like them, I will have them rendered in photoshop and hopefully, get them made for the team. Here are the specifics. Location: DeKalb, IL (Home of the Northern Illinois Huskies) School name: Clinton Rosette Middle School Mascot: J-Barbs (High school is the Barbs. DeKalb is the birthplace of barbed wire) Colors: Burnt orange and black Home Whites Away darks Barb City Alts
  2. LSUA GENERALS LOGO CONTEST

Wondering what became of it, I've tried to make contact but haven't had much luck. Below is the add they posted. If this is not the right place for this by all means please move it to where it belongs, thnx! https://www.lsua.edu/news/noteworthy/2017/08/01/lsua-athletics-logo-contest
  3. New LA Clippers logo (prototype)

    As many (most?) of you know, the (vast) majority of people think the new/current Los Angeles Clippers logo sucks... and for good reason. But spontaneously - out of absolutely nowhere - I came up with a brilliant concept. If nobody has thought of this before, I might actually be surprised. (Maybe a little?) Well, check this one out! It's a prototype that exemplifies the best of minimalist design (which is the trend du jour), while incorporating elements that make way too much sense. And yes - the red and blue used here is EXACTLY the same as that used in the current and former Los Angeles Clippers logos. The logo looks like a boat, which is a stand-in for a Clipper ship - the Los Angeles Clippers, which were originally based in the naval city of San Diego (as the San Diego Clippers), borrows its nickname from the aforementioned seafaring vessel. The logo incorporates a stylized "LA" (which you can see here), and the bottom of the logo incorporates a part of a basketball, which is commonplace for NBA logos. (By my count, two-thirds of all NBA teams have this as part of their primary logo.) Not to brag, but I say that this idea is too good to ignore. If someone improves upon this design and it gets some serious press, I've done my job already. Thoughts? Disclaimer: This work, illustrated herein, is an entirely original concept by sj10689 (the original author of this thread); any other logos/designs which have already been created prior to the posting of this comment, that bear any (striking) similarity, or is (almost) exactly the same, constitutes a circumstance which is purely coincidental. Therefore, as sj10689 is verily the creator of this work, which was not in any way inspired by, nor copied from any other pre-existing works, sj10689 assumes full ownership of this property. P.S.: I go by "Adam_Halverson" outside the forums, on sportslogos.net. I reposted this concept on the Los Angeles Clippers primary logo page.
  4. I was browsing major Chicago sports logos online and noticed a trend with every team except the Bulls. The Cubs, White Sox, Bears, Blackhawks and Fire have both "object" logos and a "letter" logos, respectively. However, the Bulls only have an object logo. I wanted to create a letter logo for the Bulls, but it had to be attached stylistically to the current object logo. My creative focus was on the horns. The way some bull horns curl made the most sense in creating lettering. A "c" curve looked somewhat natural, so I came up with two differing types of Bulls C's. I am still working on creating a final design that closely relates to the elements of the Bulls "object" logo, so these are by no means my final designs. I posted my designs here to gain some feedback from a community of graphic design enthusiasts and creators. -Grayson Woods
  5. I've been thinking about some of the changes that have been going on in the NBA (player movement, tanking, resting, etc.) and the leagues responses to them. The league has been fairly cooperative with the players, coaches, owners, and fans on these. You might say they've been rolling with them. To that end some more "rolling" needs to happen. There are still some problems that the league needs to address: - too many games (especially for the playoff teams) - long....mostly uneventful.... playoffs - super teams rolling over everyone So these are my thoughts on how to re-organize in order to address these problems: 1. Move Minnesota to the Eastern Conference: truth be told I'd prefer that they do away with conferences all together and just work with divisions (more on that later) but Minne is kind of an out-lier in the west anyway. They are much closer to eastern conference teams for travel's sake, moving them could cut some road trips by a bit. 2. Add teams in Seattle and Las Vegas: Both places will likely end up with teams in the future either way. This brings the league total to 32 teams. 3. Create 4 Divisions: The 32 teams work to make 4 eight team divisions Pacific: Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, Golden State, LAL, LAC, Utah, Las Vegas South West: Denver, Phoenix, OKC, Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, New Orleans, Memphis Great Lakes: Minnesota, Milwaukee, Chicago, Indiana, Cleveland, Toronto, Detroit, Philadelphia Atlantic: Boston, New York, Brooklyn, Washington, Charlotte, Atlanta, Orlando, Miami 4. Cut down regular season: Each team plays every other team twice for 62 games, plus they play each team in their conference 1 more time through the year for 77 total games. This cuts the season by five games for everyone (player rest/ longevity). 5. Reformat the playoffs with march madness in mind: I don't mean all win or go home, but (and this is probably the most controversial change) 16 teams start the playoffs and the first round is win or go home. The 2nd round is a 3 game series, higher stakes. The conference championships and finals are 5 game series. The most playoff games possible would be 14 if no team swept the minimum would be 9 if a team swept through. This format could either help or hurt a super team, they could get beat in the first round game and get no redemption games. 6. Move toward no conferences: Eventually they could just rely on the divisions instead of conferences. Just change the schedule to play each team in their division twice more instead of every team in the conference once more (one less game). Then each division sends a team to the "final four" in the playoffs. This could also benefit the All-Star Game by taking the best 24 players in the league rather than 12 from each conference. [If you really like your leagues chopped up you could make my divisions into conferences and break each into 2 divisions] Well that's the idea that was burning itself into my brain while I was trying to sleep last night. Let me know what you think.

    Los Angeles Clippers Rebrand, any feedback would be appreciated
  7. LOCKER ROOM PRESENTATION

    Just wanted to share a new template I created intended to display a uniform of any sort. Below are two finished examples, one with soccer, and another with football equipment. Message me to get a hold of a blank template with no watermark. It is saved as a png. file and I personally used paint.net. Nothing special just hoping it may spark someone's interest. Enjoy! I am accepting feedback to adjust as well.
  8. Chicago Bulls Logo Concept

    Here is a logo concept inspired by member mattr1198's concept (if on dribbble it'd be a rebound). I meshed the Windy City Bulls' logo with my own creations: I think they both look pretty sweet, but my edge goes to the left. What about you?
  9. NBA Blacktop Series by Bruins

    This is a project I'd had in my head for a long time, and I finally decided to make it happen. My concept for the NBA to be taken outdoors for the first time in history, the NBA Blacktop Series. The BS if you will. As crazy as it sounds, I think it would be possible if done right for an NBA game to be played outside. I mean if they can do it with hockey, they can do it with roundball. The more outlandish part of the idea is a proposal for the game to be played on an actual street court, Chicago's Margaret Hie Ding Lin Park Court in this case. It would fit in well with the NBA's mindset and would be kind of like bringing players back to their roots, where it all began, on a humble street court. So below are all the facets of what I think this could/should look like. LOGO The logo for the Blacktop Series is simple and uniform, but still hanging on to some uniqueness while serving as a kind of ode to Chicago's Hie Ding Park, with the underside of the El tracks center stage on the logo and court alike. Any further games would fit this same half-circle logo template. SECONDARIES UNIFORMS The matchup for the inaugural Blacktop game is Pistons/Bulls which i think is a healthy enough rivalry, esp. city wise, to kick the series off. The jerseys are noticeably button-up which will serve as a distinct icon of outdoor b-ball. Chi-Town's uni has a black base with the colors of the city's flag as bold accent colors. The Flag Shield secondary from the event logo is the sleeve patch and the flag's four six-point stars are an accent underneath the numbers. Detroit's jersey is much more understated with the D from their new logo on the left breast and the new logo itself as a sleeve patch. Motor City silver is the base. SEATING PLAN C&C hugely appreciated as this is the biggest single project I've done yet, so I'd love to hear what you think of the first installment of the NBA Blacktop Series! Thanks guys

  12. Albuquerque Invaders -- For NBA 2K18

    Hello all! This is probably the first time I have posted an artwork which I made for @nashbeat after he requested for a create-a-team in the NBA 2K18 video game. It is just for a small fun project which I feel that I should show y'all the work I made. I kept it simple and should looks strong. The team colors are simply -- alien green, purple (same color as LA Lakers for the bold look) and black. I used initial name of "ABQ" which is short for the airport on any uniform let it be on road or alternative uniforms and it is more of inspiration toward to Phoenix Sun since they did with "PHX" as its short name on their uniforms. Also for one of the secondary logos, I took in an idea with 1994-1996 inspiration of Houston Rocket's basketball logo with its rocket turning around it. It actually worked so well than I had thought. Let me know on how y'all like it or not! C&C here please!
  13. THEREALPEPMAN'S NIKE X NBA TEMPLATE

    Hello folks! I would like to share a uniform template I have created. It’s called the Nike NBA Aeroswift Uniform Template. It’s in Adobe Photoshop. On that document, I have created every element Nike and sports design enthusiasts can come up (ex. NBA logo placements, necklines, etc.). Play around with what I made there as you can turn them on or off on the Layers portion of the program. Download it on the link below this text. And please credit me if you’ll use my template for your future projects. Please and thank you. =D TEMPLATE (EDITED 08/30/17) SOURCE IMAGES (CTO) -TheRealPepman
  14. So with the recent NBA releases,I had some ideas... and decided to translate them into concepts. Some stuff will remain intact: Nike Swoosh to stay,4 uniform format as well,although I'll increase the throwbacks to 10. Ads,however,are not welcome in this project; I don't like them (the way they are,they're merely a superflous gimmick,tbh) Teams that comprised the playoffs will go first,then everyone else based on standings. I'll alternate between the Western and Eastern conferences,Western first since the champions are from there. So,let's start with the 2016/17 champs: the Golden State Warriors The "Association" and "Icon" uniform are based off their look from the first half of the 1990s. These two feature a sublimated "bridge" graphic on the bottom left,taken from the primary logo. The slate grey "athlete's mindset" uniform has the same design,albeit printed in yellow/blue,while the yellow "community" uniform is a simplification of their current look + bit of a fauxback. Up next: I'll try to fix the broken new Cavaliers unis...

  16. New Utah Jazz Uniforms by Nike

    Didn't see a thread for this: http://www.nba.com/jazz/nike1718?_ga=2.241182981.688412386.1502590075-2085097014.1496195062 http://www.nba.com/jazz/news/jazz-reveal-first-two-uniforms-2017-18-season
  17. If Nike and the Dallas Mavericks decided to go all in on the Skyline design this season...... Special shoutout to Riley Gisseman for the jersey template. Please let me know what you guys think!
  18. Hello! This is my first ever uniform/logo concepts I have ever done. I am a graphic designer on Instagram, and I am taking a jab at concepts for the first time. Constructive criticism and Feedback is very welcomed!
  19. NBA2K19 Covers

  20. Aaron Dodson from The Undefeated listed The 30 Best NBA Throwback Jerseys is response to Nike's announcement that eight teams will be wearing a Classic Edition uniform (READ: Throwback) this upcoming year. There's a lot to be said about Dodson's list, which needless to say, I don't agree with. So I thought I'd share ONE throwback for each 30 teams that I'd love to see worn. This isn't necessarily the best designed throwback from their team history, but more back to an era relatable to the fans and their history. Also, in the spirit of the NBA going with more Color vs. Color match ups, I decided to go with colored jerseys, especially since the Association Edition (READ: Home Uniform) will presumably be the only white jersey in team's collections. Anyways, here is my list. I'd love to see everyone else's opinions on what throwbacks you'd like your favorite team to sport next year or near future ...
  21. NBA G League Court Concepts

    After making court concepts of all the NCAA D1 schools, I decided to do the NBA G League (formerly NBA D-League) next. Obviously many of these designs couldn't currently be used due to NBAGL teams sharing arenas/courts with other teams but it's still fun to design them. I didn't get as creative as I did with the NCAA courts because the NBA/NBAGL are still generally more traditional with their designs and I still want the concepts to be realistic. I used DarthBrooks court template. I will post them in groups of 5 (except for the last group which will be 6). A few things you might notice... The more unique logos the team has the more I tried to incorporate them into the court. Many of the courts are similar to their parent team's court. I added the team's parent team logo to the upper left and lower right corners. I didn't include websites, twitter handles, hashtags, etc. on the out-of-bounds area.

  22. Spirits of St. Louis Reboot

    In my opinion, the Spirits of St. Louis were by far the coolest ABA identity. The funky, orange uniforms were just as awesome as they were seventies, and their logo was fantastic as well. And so if the NBA ever expands into STL, they should definitely reboot that awesome identity. Now, personally, i would have 0 problems with them literally just copying and pasting the Spirits design from 1975 to 20--, but I'm almost positive that would never happen, so this is basically my plan B. While i was brainstorming this in my head, I realized that a basketball already has a St. Louis Arch in it. How convenient is that?! It certainly helped serve as an anchor for this project, because i knew that would be the centerpiece with some plane-related imagery to help it. So as I was experimenting with roundels and such, i realized that i could get the exact image i was going for with simply a specifically angled basketball and two simple propellers. Along with a modern take on the vintage Spirits script, I'm pretty happy with the result. I'd really love to hear some C&C on this, I'm curious to hear what you guys think! Thanks!
  23. Hi, Here is a new project I've been working on, I've red interviews about the way they did the league, the way they've built the identities. With my informations, I wanted something to be eye popping really catchy, I've done researches and after a long journey with drawings, days with or without inspirations and tons of decisions, I come up with these designs. I'm happy to unveiled the team,the players I've picked are these I would love to see in the Big3's league. Enjoy feel free to give feedbacks. Captain Co-captain Coach
  24. NBA teams are taking a minimalist approach on new logo designs. Therefore, I wanted to re-design the primary logo for the San Antonio Spurs! I mainly wanted to simply the iconic spur by blending the stem with the star. I also wanted to personalize the backdrop badge to represent the city by incorporating the Alamo. i'd love to get your feedback! Go Spurs Go!
  25. As a Spurs fan, I was completely let down when the new secondary logo was recently released. I think the new logo is way too generic and does not represent the organization at all. Even though I'm not a fan of the simplistic logo trend going around the NBA, I wanted to design my own minimalist concept for the SA Spurs that featured the iconic Alamo with the basketball.
