Golden State Warriors unveil new logo + uniform

Recommended Posts

I dig the Warriors uniforms. Something different in the NBA that doesn't look like pajamas or an awful, gaudy 90's design.

These ugly things, belong on Finland's National Team.

In fact, that's what they look like. Somebody's National Team uniforms.

The colors are fine, but that lame logo on the front of the jersey with the small number? Stooooopid. Won't even know who the hell is playing and what the team name is, if you see them on TV.

Epic failure. What was so wrong with what they were wearing recently? Those were pretty cool colors.

I get that royal blue and yellow, harken back to the 1970's (which seems to be the "rage" in "new" NBA uniform design), but the uniforms in themselves are horrible.

The set has it's issues, but I really love the bridge imagery in the shorts. That's really creative and really nice. I also like the embroidery on the jerseys... hell, truthfully, I think the only real issue I have with the set is Copperplate.

It's crazy. They hit a home run with the shorts, but achieved a golden sombrero with the jerseys.

WAY too many ideas shoe-horned onto this design. A very good example of why self-editing as a designer is one of the most important traits one learns.

I assume its the work of a "team" of designers, often being lead by a very UN-creative executive.

A shame.

0/4 on new NBA uni's this year.

And why is that? There's no yellow on the Finnish flag.

The uniform design on these is an excellent upgrade. However the logo on front with the small number crammed in there is a failure. I don't know how the back looks yet so I can't comment, but if the re-did the front without using the whole logo and probably chose a different font other than copperplate, these could easily be one of the best uniform sets in the league. A classic example of so close yet so far.

It never dawned on me until I read it in another forum.... A comment was made that those two stripes (on the side panels all the way down to the bottom of the shorts) represent the tower of the new Oakland side of the span of the SF/Oakland Bay Bridge, and the lines at the bottom of the shorts are supposed to be the cables....

Ingenious...I guess...

Love the shorts, like the jerseys.

The only thing I have issue with is the size of the city/team name. Enlarge it so it's easier to see and it''s a great uniform all around. I'm not a big fan of the neck-line but most NBA neck-lines these days are weird.

It would look so much better if they made the circle larger giving a bigger number font and then just stuck with WARRIORS on top of the circle instead of the full name.

They are great unis, except for that TERRIBLE circle/logo/number thing in the middle. I know its a call back to their history . . . . but its BAD. Everything else is great. The shorts are great. The colors are great. The collar and side stripes are fine. A normal "Golden State" with a number would have made these a great set.

I might have to do a concept, because this look has too much potential.

Incredibly basic, but I like it because of the color combo the Warriors switched to. However, I'm not liking the recent resurgence of not outlining numbers/names on jerseys. It looks cheap.

For me, the neck striping pattern and armhole striping pattern ruin them. I think one or both of them should have a blue line through the yellow stripe.

Oh, I find it highly unfortunate.

Yea I'm not really fan of the w over the state, looks like a very cheap logo. Wished they went with the old state logo with the star as an alt logo. I am really glad though, that they don't have a stupid logo on the butt like some teams.

The size of the logo is the major problem - if they just made the circle bigger and allowed more room for the numbers it would work better. Wouldn't be surprised to see that tweaked.

I don't think they thought things out properly when doing the redesign - they should have done it more like the old logo, just with the bridge replacing the California. Make the bridge smaller; make the logo a basketball on the main logo; swap the basketball out for a jersey number like on the old jerseys. Making the logo the same color as the jersey like on the old ones might work better as well, although I guess they have to update some things.
