    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

    Updated Detroit Red Wings Logo

    Hi all, As many of you know, the Detroit Red Wings logo is the oldest logo in the NHL right now. As sacrilegious as this sounds, I decided to modernize/refresh the look of the Red Wings' classic logo quite a bit. Some of the new updates would include: 1. A New Wheel: The most prominent difference is the updated wheel, reflecting a modern car wheel cover. Additionally, the cap now showcases the rarely used alternate "D" logo. 2. Updated/Significant Wings and Feathers: On the current logo, the feathers are relatively rough and hard to replicate on merchandise. I decided to smoothen out the feathers on the wings, while also adding a bit of significance to the feathers too. If you take a look, the back feathers contain 11 "dents", representing the 11 stanley cups the team has won. 3. Minor smoothing: Rougher/inconsistent edges are smoothened out and evened. 4. New Font: The current font used by the Red Wings reflects the same font as the former home, Joe Louis Arena. In order to reflect the change into the new arena, I updated the serif for the team as well. This is a bit rough, but tell me what y'all think if the Red Wings chose to do this? OLD: NEW:
  3. Just noticed this today, NBA 2k17 appears to have leaked the new Pistons logo LONG before we knew about it. On the "Current NBA Teams" AND "league expansion" option, you can see the Pistons new logo in the bottom right corner.

    Detroit Tigers

    A couple years ago, I decided to take a stab at the NY-Penn League's Connecticut Tigers after they introduced mascot logos that looked like they'd come out of a 30s Mickey Mouse cartoon (and I say that in a good way). The road jersey in that concept was basically the Sparky Anderson-era grays, but with CONNECTICUT instead of DETROIT on the front. A few years removed, and I've decided I wanted to see what the big leaguers would look like in a similar set. First, the home and away... Like I'd done with the CT Tigers, the home whites are tweaked more than anything: orange trim is added to the D and lettering, and the tiger head appears as a left sleeve patch. Orange trim is also added to the cap D. The grays take their cues from the 80s, with orange-white-navy cuffs and pants striping, and eliminating the white outlines and front number. The socks also now have orange stripes. There is a home alternate, basically a white version of the grays, the chief difference being the Tigers script instead of Detroit. For the hell of it, I included a slightly toned down version of the CT set's striped alternate-most of the jersey stripes blend in, with only two remaining navy, fewer stripes on the cap, and the pants are still navy, but with more normal looking striping that wouldn't be pooh-poohed as something more befitting the Astros. But wait, there's more! In the next post, a second variant!

    Detroit Mercy Tweak

    The University of Detroit Mercy recently released a new identity, included an integrated "D-M" icon. Unfortunately, it feels like they mailed it in on the D part of the icon.With that said, I made some tweaks that I believe greatly improve it. Thoughts? Original: Modified:
  6. I think that the Wings used a really solid and slick logo for the Stadium Series against Colorado this year. It seemed modern, but still classic, and still retaining the timeless winged logo they still sport on their chests today. These jerseys used that logo, but in a less modern way. I tried to make these a combination of modern and classic, just like the Stadium Series logo, and I think it turned out ok. Thoughts?

    Detroit Pistons concept "Bad Boys" tribute

    Of all the team logos in the NBA, the Detroit Piston's current logo may be one of the simpler ones. It is merely the team name on a basketball which is fine for an expansion team but not for a team with as great a history as the Pistons. My concept calls upon the greatest era of the Detroit Pistons and that would be the eighties through the early nineties. Back when they were known as the "Bad Boys". The focal point of this concept is in the primary for the jerseys have only received slight changes. The primary features details from the "Bad Boys" era of the Pistons as well as a couple of pistons, the team's namesake. The secondary is simple and the only other real major design change is in the "Motor City" alternate. So, here they are. The Primary Logo: The Secondary Logo: Home Jersey: Road Jersey: Alternate Jersey: C & C appreciated!

    Detroit Pistons Rebrand (Jersey Set)

    The city of Detroit in in the process of re-building. They are attracting a youthful and creative crowd (the makers). I think the Pistons should use this re-building as an opportunity to re-imagine their brand. Take some of the old identity, some of the old Detroit, a portion of auto-mania, and mix vigorously. I am putting together a logo set that will incorporate these thoughts, inspired by the art, culture, attitude, and industry of Detroit. So far I'm in the beginning stages, but here is a taste: Let me know what you think about the direction. Also, horse or pegasus?

    Detroit Lions Concept

    Hello everyone I'm finally back on the site again, I've been running into some bad luck lately but everything seems too be in cruise control right now. So anyway I was watching the Lions-Vikings game today and I thought how cool would it be if the Lions would merge there Barry Sanders era uniforms and color scheme in with the new Lions look, so here this is. -Basically the biggest change was that I dropped Black from the color scheme -Kept main logo except without the Black outline -I brought back the old Helmet, Sleeve, and Pant Striping -Kept the new Lions Font -Kept the Lions wordmark on the uniform -And I brought back the Blue pants Oh yeah also tell me how the Nike Mach Speed Template looks! Now I know there are gonna be some people that will not like the Monochromatic Blue's but I decided too throw them in anyway.

    Lions Logo

    Drew this lion logo up yesterday. I colored it for Detroit but it could work for other teams as well. What are your thoughts on the logo, possible teams, or color combos?
  11. After seeing how great the Winter Classic was at Michigan Stadium, and how much I want the Columbus Blue Jackets to have the chances they need to gain traction and survive as a franchise, I came up with this. The NHL needs to get involved in the Toledo War, the war between the state of Ohio and the Michigan territory over the port of Toledo that led to the tremendous rivalry that those two states share today (Ohio got Toledo, Michigan got the Upper Peninsula), and the way to capitalize on the Michigan-Ohio hatred is to have the Detroit Red Wings play against the Columbus Blue Jackets in Ohio Stadium The logo is a horseshoe, for Ohio Stadium, which is horseshoe-shaped and often referred to as "the horseshoe". The interior of it is the open portico to enter the stadium, and the buckeye is off to the side. I'm terrible at original logos, so I kinda threw that together. The rest is why I made it. Detroit was a no-brainer, a vintage-white version of their old white uniforms made so much sense. I added a simple patch for the people of Michigan to bring into Ohio.The Blue Jackets was a little tougher Columbus was a little tougher. I had a blue and red version of their third jersey with just the cannon, and that looks great, but it didn't look like enough for a Winter Classic. I wanted something vintage where I could have the Ohio state outline for the numbers, just like the Barons used, and to make it look very vintage Civil War kind of stuff. I'm definitely open to suggestions on it though. C&C? UPDATE: This is the jersey I rejected because it isn't all that different from their current alternates. However, with the response that it got, I'll promote it. The one major change is the update to the hat logo, replacing the star, which I think the team needs to move away from, with the state outline of Ohio. Not only does it look more Civil War-era, but it does more to appeal to the entire state of Ohio, a pride segment that they have yet to exploit. It doesn't hurt that the red stripes with the silver are Ohio State-like, too.

    Detroit Lions Concept Branding

    Hi everyone, I decided to do a total rebrand of the Detroit Lions as if "bubbles" and the current branding never existed. I did it more for fun and as a challenge to myself to come up with a full branding system. I warn those who are Lions fans that this doesn't keep much of what is currently in the system or on the uniforms. It definitely has a less traditional feel to it. I mean no disrespect to the current branding or the traditions from which it came from. That being said, let's go into the project. I based my logo concept off of a 70's profile Detroit Lions Logo that I found on this very site, and made an updated version of it. I thought the profile head would look great for the helmets and be able to be used in many different applications. I then thought to do a front view to be able to be used on the uniforms, and additional logos can help merchandising. I based the typography on a black letter style since the tigers use blackletterI then did the unthinkable and darkened the Lions blue and added a surprise color into the uniforms. I felt that the orange could symbolize fire: the fires of industry found in Detroit, the rebirth of a team from the ashes etc. I also thought the new color could help be a driver for new merchandise lines. For the Uniforms I included watermarks on the shoulderpads of tire patterns representing the motor city, and a grid of the city on the silver uniform.I then decided to extend the series to include a stationary system for their corporate offices. I hope yall like them, and I'm open to your feedback. Thanks, enjoy Profile primary Profile full body front facing logo Lions script Lions Helmet Uniform front Uniform front with Lion patch Uniform back Full Uniform full uniform silver Lions Stationary Sorry forgot to say I used templates from Frasier Davidson for the helmet and uniform shot

    Horizon League Soccer

    There's been a lot of talk at the PantherU forum about soccer, Milwaukee's most storied program, adopting a permanent (and hopefully timeless) look, which got me to thinking what would be a good look for all of the Horizon League soccer teams. Cleveland State: CSU's teams are known as the Vikings, which should make this design fairly obvious. Detroit: I took the Greco trim from the Titans' logo and did some horizontal pinstriping with it. Green Bay: One of the more difficult ones here, but I decided to go with a hybrid of the Packers throwbacks, and the kits the USMNT's 2004 kits. Milwaukee: This one is based on the soccer jersey that Pounce the Panther wears. Apparently it's based on a long-time look the Panther soccer team had, which, in true UWM fashion, they abandoned upon making it a permanent part of their mascot's look. Oakland: Probably the most radical of the bunch. The pattern is based on their logo. UIC: Obviously based on the Chicago flag. If it were up to me, the Flames would swap their current blue for the sky blue of the actual flag, and use that for the basis for their identity. One of the stars on the flag even signifies the Great Chicago Fire, for which the Flames were named. Valparaiso: A downward-facing chevron (V-shape) seemed appropriate for a school whose name starts with V. Wright State: An ascending sash seemed appropriate for a school named after the Wright Brothers.

    Detroit in MLS?

    I know this only a proposal, but there has to be more behind this, right? Why would a huge project (1 Billion dollars) like this include a stadium without there at least being some logical reasoning. http://www.mlive.com...t_river_default

    Detroit Pistons Concept

    Here's a concept I've been working on. The old Detroit Shock D-secondary was a pretty nice logo, I had to bring in a re-worked version here. I'm using a wheel/tire with a basketball hubcap as the working element here. Not 100% sure how well that speaks to the Pistons brand. Still auto-related. Their current typeface is nice and works for their image, I just think their current brand is not utilizing it to its fullest potential, such a bland identity for them currently. I don't know about the 'i' and S connecting..the 'i' starts looking like an 'L'. Tried to find a halfway point between their original/current identity and the crazy horsepower years. Part 2:

    Detroit Tigers Concept

    After receiving positive feedback from my update to Detroit's road set, I decided to expand this into an entire Tigers refresh. Let's get to the changes I've made and the reasons behind them: Navy has been darkened. Gives a crisper feel in contrast to the orange. The orange is a bit bolder as well, to serve as a more outstanding accent color specifically in the absence of white on the traditional road set. The home "D" on the jersey now matches the "D" on the cap. I felt this was a necessary change to maintain uniformity throughout the identity. Both road jerseys feature piping around the sleeve cuff and "V" neck, in contrast to the current piping down the center. I felt this showed a genuine contrast between the home and road sets, but not enough to break the uniformity of the entire identity. White has been eliminated from the primary road set. I never liked the "double stroke" look around the wordmark, nameplate and numerals on the current roads. It looks outdated and crowded. A simpler navy with orange stroke shows a modern, clean, respectful update to one of the league's most revered ball clubs. I've added a road alternate set, for use during away games only. The Tigers' home whites are the only jerseys to be worn at Comerica Field, to maintain the club's traditional appearance. The navy roads may be worn on Friday or Sunday road contests. This navy jersey is a recoloration of the updated roads, featuring orange piping on the sleeves and neck. All three jerseys feature no sleeve artwork. This is to further maintain the cleanliness of the entire identity, and leave room for patches dedicated to special occasions. That about does it! I'd love to hear feedback from you all. Thanks! (Edit: I noticed I accidentally omitted the MLB logo on the back of the jerseys. Please ignore that small note.)
  17. This is a concept ive been workning on this past week hoping to get some c&c on it to see if these actually look good. I know some people dont like black on the lions as they perfer the more traditional look but i wanted to see what you guys had to say. I went with a black helmet with gradient stripes. On the uniform i tried to get the numbers to look like the material the ducks use.
  18. Hi, this isn't much of a change, which Detroit obviously shouldn't change, but I simply cleaned up the logo. I know that the logo shouldn't be tampered with but this is a concept forum. So please let me know what you think. (I've posted the current Red Wings logo for you to compare the difference)
