Idea for Expansion NBA Team!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I'm taking a graphic design class where we have to come up with a concept and I chose to create an NBA basketball team. I chose to locate them in Pittsburgh and came up with the name The Hammers (playing off the whole "Steel City" identity). Anyways, I wanted to get some constructive criticism by other sports-loving designers on my ideas. Below are a couple ideas for logos I've made. Please feel free to critique the work and also let me know if any of these work well enough to move forward with and why/why not.

Here they are:

Thanks again guys for your time!

Holy hell! What exactly is going on here?

(Note: This initial post was in response to seeing a long list of code before I provided steps to the poster on how to upload his images. This does not reflect my opinion of his uploaded images).

Whoops! I tried copying and pasting a couple JPEGs into the body and THIS happened! Any advice guys? What did I do wrong here?

I recommend uploading the JPEGs to an image hosting website, like Photobucket; and then click on the "Image" icon within the post editor to connect to the photos you're trying to display.

The second one looks really nice. I don't like the grey lines on the extrusion on the wordmark. Maybe adding some of the dark grey to the basketball, like on the hammers would really help polish this.

thebigyellohh, I like that ball/ flame design but I'm a little confused. Instead of recreating the Lakers logo, it appears you're simply mashing up theirs with the Heat.

Hey guys. I'm taking a graphic design class where we have to come up with a concept and I chose to create an NBA basketball team. I chose to locate them in Pittsburgh and came up with the name The Hammers (playing off the whole "Steel City" identity). I also chose to keep the black and yellow theme that all their teams use. Anyways, I wanted to get some constructive criticism by other sports-loving designers on my ideas. Below are a couple ideas for logos I've made. Please feel free to critique the work and also let me know if any of these work well enough to move forward with and why/why not.

Lol I thought you were just being ruthless with your critiquing.

Oh I'm not that syndical. However, it's slightly amusing that that's the first reply post that forum users see. I'll edit it accordingly.
