The NBA is on its way to becoming one of the world's pop culture icons, and throughout its history it has had plenty of teams vie for being the best. This series is more or less of a "What if the NBA wanted to expand?". It seems likely that the NBA could decide to expand soon, and I wanted to see what some of these teams could look like. Each division will receive a new team, based on certain qualifications, history, and geography. There is a total of 6 teams, each with a distinctive brand. Some teams call back to older days, while others bring a new look to the table. So, let's begin. Without a doubt, Seattle had their team wrongfully stripped from them. So, naturally, they are the team to start with. Currently, they have an aging KeyArena. but Seattle is so iconic, they could probably last a few years there. Logos are simple, but blend modern and traditional elements. A new font epitomizes the Sonics name, as well as the updated color scheme, featuring a tweaked dark green, and a brand new shade of *ahem* volt yellow. However, the old skyline logo has returned; a simple emblem of the city. Courts are also fairly simple with some modern additions. There is an alternate court for their "Hardwood Classic" uniforms. The uniforms are meant to be an evolution of the team's arched stripe front; this time it is straight, but with a more modern stripe to match the modern look. White home, green road, a (probably controversial) yellow alternate, with a "Hardwood Classic" combining eras of the team's previous run. I am not the most pleased with this look, but I am open to options. Next team will be up tomorrow evening at the soonest. Cheers!
We can all agree that the USA baseball team's uniforms are dated, and do not look any better with this year's WBC. Recently, Uni Watch has posted a USA Baseball redesign contest, and I wanted to share my look with you: Logo: An attempt to simplify and modernize the team's current cap logo. USA is in a more modern and bolder font, along with a retooled, brighter shade of red (what USA baseball needs more of). Home: White pinstripe vest with blue undershirt. USA is in red to give the color a more distinct position. Road: Grey uniform with basic piping details. Font and lettering color does not change. Simply a basic, American-style look. Alternate: A tribute to the "golden age" of early 1900's baseball. Simplified cap with star, blue jersey with blue pants and white striped stockings, and a vintage styled font. A bit out there, but added in for a fun look. No changes will be coming to the entry sent in for the Uni Watch competition, but C&C is still welcomed.
Living in Colorado, almost everyone knows the Avalanche. But I have always loved their previous brand as the Quebec Nordiques. I am thinking of starting a new series, but I just wanted to get something out there. I have started using Inkscape, and I enjoy it! It is so much more flexible than paint. So, this is my first posted Inkscape concept. This concept utilizes more red in the uniform, to add some color to it. The yolk is also a new addition. The fleur-de-lis still appear around the waist, and are also the shoulder patches. A new stripe style appears around the uniform, and there is blue pants for both the home and the road, as well as a blue home helmet and a white road one.
SSmith48 posted a topic in ConceptsHey guys- It's hard for me to believe that is has already been 2 months since I joined, and I thought I needed a special project for my 100 post. The Colorado Rapids are owned by Kroenke Sports Enterprises, which also owns the English soccer team Arsenal. I decided to create what I think the Rapids could have switched to if the Rapids also had Puma. Of course Adidas is the sole manufacturer in the MLS, but if there was multiple manufacturers, I think Colorado would have Puma. Here is the home kit: The template is an old Puma style, because it fit the concept perfectly. I also took the liberty of adding more claret, because there is not enough of it in any Rapids uniforms. The font is the base MLS font with simplified numbers, because they actually work better than the drop shadow ones. C&C would help, A road kit may be added, and depending on how this goes, I might start a new series. Thanks for your time!
