Thanks - I couldn't see it in the photos that I saw... but maybe that's a problem.I do see that it's on the white trim, but not nearly enough to make an impact.

 

Since from any distance it disappears against the navy, I would really have increased its use against the white.

 

Also - this is the first I've seen of the angle on the top right of the D and R.  That's not good at all.  From the close-up, the D hardly looks like a D.  

 

I think the trim needs to be a little heavier, and I agree on the type details. I think that spike can add something, but I think it should go where you might naturally have a block serif; on a C, a G, an S, etc. I can’t figure out the upper left serifs, either. I think the D would be a good place for one, and I also think it would have been a good place to bring in the angle like you see on the center bar of the E, as it would reinforce the pick axe/railroad hammer theme.

Who else agrees that the Nuggets are a particularly hard team to design for? Between the name and the city, there's not a lot to work with.

The city/state has some potential, but literally everything has a Colorado flag on it now. So, they are a little late to that party. 

 

The name is definitely rough, though. The pick axe logo is the best design they’ve ever had. Which isn’t saying much, as they’ve had a lot of garbage logos.

He's so confused he's gonna win a Super Bowl next year .... besides, he's too rich to be confused.

 

 

Wait ..... you're a grudging St. Louis Rams guy, right?

Wasn't I obvious?? 😁😁.

 

P.S. I'm a Bears fan but I am quite familiar with the Kroenke family.  Let's just say I don't name drop like others to sound high and mighty. 

 

Jokes aside their owner is sneaky, smart and quite opportunistic. Everything I dream if as a businessman.

If you were playing Family Feud and the survey was "Name a kind of nugget," "gold" would be third behind "chicken" and "weed," if not fourth behind those two and "butt."

Yeah, I would just yell "PENIS VAGINA!" every time I was called on so I could watch him show his disgust for what society has become.

I think the Nuggets have a few strong things going. They have the Colorado flag (which is the reason why the color scheme of this new set, especially the mixing of yellow and white trim, doesn’t bother me as much as it should objectively). And they have the Tetris skyline. Either of these may not be great, and maybe not literal for the team brand, but they fit the current trends.

 

I woulda been curious if they could have done anything with that weird flirtation with black and ice blue, but eh.

Re: the shorts of Association and Icon

 

I don't like how its design is inconsistent with the jersey design. It would have been a 10 out of 10 for me if it looked like this:

Agree?

The Nuggets have a tough name to work with, yes. But they could do a hell of a lot better than this.

Richard Dawson was really great in Running Man. Does Steve Harvey kiss grandma on the lips?

Yeah, that roundel with the pick axe in the ball is much better and an actual concept compared to the generic flat ball they went with, a logo that the Utah Jazz already have.

 

The final skyline logo was improved drastically over the concept version, though - which we actually saw on the posted Draft hat, I believe - and got so much more applicable for use.

They wouldn't have any problems with a name if they had gone with "Larks" like they were going to - or if there were no NBA Rockets.

I'm not sure why I cannot find it now but didn't someone post a sample of what the entire font set looked like? Or did I just imagine that?

As much as I share that sentiment, I think JTernup meant Edmonton.

Nope, I responded to that comment saying I wanted a HOUSTON Oilers-esque color scheme just with yellow replacing white. I may not 'remember' the Oilers (I was two when they left for TN) but I will never forget that beautiful color scheme and those fun teams they had with Warren Moon. I would imagine similar sentiments among 90's kids on these boards are similar.

 

On that note, why have the Nuggets deemphasized the yellow so much? It won't be the base color for the city edition jersey and it plays a very minor role on the other three jerseys. This is the exact opposite of what I expected after the emphasis of yellow on last year's apparel and warm up gear.

I think it depends on how you look at it. Certainly there’s less of it in quantity, but I’d argue that the use of it more focused, similarly to how it’s used on the Colorado flag; a blue and white base with a red and gold focal element. It’s emphasized, just in a different way than we expect on a sport uniform.

These logos are beautiful. The potential for a great city skyline alternate jersey is there.

 

Add a Nuggets script below the first one and it might be a decent primary logo. And it would kind of fit the mold of what all their previous primary logos were...

Except they're the Denver team that actually has a history of using the colors of the Colorado flag.  If anyone can pull it off, it's them.
