New York Knicks Concept

Recommended Posts

MrWonka    280

So, if anyone knows me well, I do not mess around with NBA often. As far as tradition goes, I know the most popular teams

but other teams I'm not so sure on. In this case, I'm pretty sure the Knicks have some foundation with a traditional look, no?

Well, this goes what I believe to be in a very different direction the Knicks have ever gone to. To me, it's a mix of traditional design

with modern design. Not sure if I should continue this concept further (full on primary, secondary marks, white jersey, court design).

Depending on the responses I may continue this. Hopefully, there is something to build on. Let me know!

Really not sure if I'm going to continue this series. Would really love some feedback to see if this is liked at all or if it might be a lost cause for the Knicks.

I have mixed feelings about the concept. As a closet Knick fan, I love the removal of gray and I think the piping could work for them. The "Knicks" wordmark/font is where you lose me. I could see them having a jersey that says "Knicks" on it, but, respectfully, this one kinda seems generic...like the Wolves' new uniform. I think a team like the Knicks, in a city like New York, need something bolder. Try bringing back the Ewing-era font...you'll see people get on board with that. At least, I would. Keep at it, you're off to a good start.

Hmmmm... I guess my mindset is the same to that. Reason I was working with the Knicks concept like this was to get away from that tradition and what I call "generic". Wanted to try to give it a simple feel but trying to modernize the brand.

New Yorkers are big on tradition...we're a proud bunch. Even Met/Jet fans are proud and they've stuck for a while. Look at all our teams' uniforms...they all have some (or a lot of) link to the past. The glories of yesteryear.

Totally understandable, I guess that's why I took on this challenge. Giving the team a new feel while still trying not to go full "modern" on it. So I definitely want to utilize something really unique not only to the uniform but the whole look.
