I liked the idea that Indiana had to create a design featuring stripes to represent cornfields. However, like a lot of others, I think the design felt a little bit disjointed with an uber-old school wordmark compared with modern side striping. I wanted to try my hand at a design for the Pacers that would better incorporate the ideas, and then ultimately scrapped the circle wordmark idea. The two main issues I had with the uniforms (particularly the home) is 1) The primarily blue side panels with smaller yellow stripes. For as long as I can remember, Indiana has worn yellow side panels, and to me that look is iconic for the team. The fact that golden state also wears blue side panels with yellow stripes is annoying to me. 2) The strange modernity of the pattern. It just doesn't fit the whole "home grown" classic theme they seemed to be going for. So, without further ado, my concept. The design retains side stripes, but does so in a more traditional manner. The yellow panels with the horizontal stripes are meant to evoke the uniforms of the Reggie Miller era with its yellow side panels and pinstripes, while maintaining its own unique identity. The panels also taper, getting thinner and thinner towards the top, a much less drastic nod to the FloJo era. Finally, the chest wordmark, back names, and numbers are italicized, reminiscent of the italicized wordmarks worn by the team for nearly two decades starting in 1981. Finally, white was eliminated from the road uniform. Ultimately, adding white outlines created an inconsistent striping pattern with the panels (which look terrible with white lines). Obviously, nothing too over the top, but something that I feel is a bit more "Pacers" while still creating a unique identity.
In a stunning turn of events, Pawnee, Indiana has mounted the winning bid for the 2024 Summer Olympic Games over competing cities Los Angeles and Paris. Headed by Regional Parks Director Leslie Knope and her husband, U.S. Congressman Ben Wyatt (D-IN), the bid proposed the building of three state of the art all-purpose stadiums as well as the renovation of two local parks to serve as Olympic-worthy venues, which ultimately swayed the Olympic committee to select the rural Indiana city. Though initially opposed by City Councilman Jeremy Jamm (who had tried to secure one of the stadium lots for a Paunch Burger franchise) and former Parks and Recreation Director Ron Swanson (due to strict fiscal concerns), the bid was supported by the city council by a vote of 3-2. After the bid was announced as the winner, Mayor Jerry Gergich stated this was "the single greatest thing to ever happen to Eagleton...oh, I mean Pawnee". The games' official logo depicts the late Pawnee icon 'Lil Sebastian carrying the Olympic torch, a mark Knope herself suggested. "'Lil Sebastian was and always will be the spirit of Pawnee," she said at the press conference, "and thus I felt it fitting that the Pawnee 2024 Olympic Games evoked the spirit of our beloved 'Lil Sebastian." The games are slated to be held August 5-17, with the opening ceremonies being held at the Pawnee Olympic Stadium and featuring performances from local icons Mouserat, Duke Silver, and Perd Hapley.
Good afternoon, folks! So I've been sitting on this for a solid two or so months now, and though far from complete as far as a full package is concerned, I wanted to share at least the start of this project anyways as a means to gage where to go from here and how y'all think of the direction I'm taking with this. I got the idea for a Pacers rebrand after looking through some old pictures of 1940's-50's Indy 500's, and am shooting for a brand package inspired by these kinds of elements. To help see where I'm coming from, here's just a couple of the bunch of pictures I used as references: Some brainstorming and sketching led me to going in the direction of using a racecar driver from this time period as the primary, with the wordmark inspired by this Mercury ad. The colors remain similar, and the "speed lines" trailing from the driver's helmet are slightly inspired by and nod to those found in the current "P" logo. I really wanted to make this guy look like he was hauling it, so without diving into gradients and such, I tried to make him look like he was blurring by in a way (which is why some elements of the left part of the logo are sort of trailing off and do not connect naturally). Anyways... ...the finished product: As of yet, I still haven't settled on any uniforms or the court, so that's still to come much further down the road. But I just wanted to post what I did have for now and see what y'all thought of it, and how it could be improved before I took the project much farther. All C&C is welcome and encouraged! Thanks for viewing!
