  1. That Stuttgart logo looks like it was drawn by somebody who’s read a bit about football helmets but never actually seen one.

  2. Yeah, part of the perfection of the Dodgers brand is how it all works sans outlines. There shouldn't be rules with this gold-trim-for-champions thing, sometimes it works as outlines (as for say the Red Sox or Nats) but it's odd for the Dodgers here. Give me a gold LA on the cap and a gold number instead of red on the shirt, call it a day. (Or just exercise restraint and be happy with a patch.)

  6. Swan Valley Stampeders This one might be one of the biggest redesigns in the series. I never minded the colours that Swan Valley uses, other than the fact it's another team with a primary black uniform. Not enough colour for me. The logo was probably my least favourite part. It's not an exact rip off of the Denver Broncos, but it's pretty much the same logo. I came up with a brand new logo, that I designed from scratch. I went with a very unique colour scheme as well, with a retro Phillies vibe. The maroon and light blue. I think my favourite part about this one is what I did with the alternate. I had an idea of a logo that would be similar to the St. Paul Saints pig logo. The logo is a pretty simple outline of a horse, with the initials 'SVS' inside. The uniform gets even cooler. I went with a fauxback kind of style. It's not something they have ever worn. It's very different, but would look so good on the ice. I love playing with new ideas. It feels like the Dallas Stars winter classic uniform a little bit. But I loved that uniform.

  7. There's no spark with this new logo. At least the previous one had synergy.

  8. I think it looks more like an abstracted colonial hat. It does a great job of perpetuating what its users do - abstracting their nationalistic and hateful ideology to the point where it's digestible to the broader public.

  10. At the risk of freely expressing my opinion, liberals wanted conservatives to go off & make their own platform. Within weeks, said platform was vilified & shut down over its content. Anyone clumsily championing the integrity of social media content will have their hearts broken when they look objectively at Facebook. Of course, none of that is relevant to this objectively poor logo redesign, so I'm glad nobody overstepped and let their misguided bias eek into this thread

  12. Yeah, the only way this gets stopped is for the fans of that market to have a boycott of the products the business is selling. These companies don’t understand or care about the emotions people have with sports. They do get money though and that’s how you have to hit them.

  13. Because the swingback cut is a functional design feature of the garment (similar to how a motorcycle jacket is designed to work) and the world’s premiere professional basketball league is where they pay to showcase their newest basketball tech. The audacity, I know, but these companies are in the business of bringing the most advanced sport products to market, not making sure traditional uniform fetishists who don’t buy a lick of NBA merchandise are happy with the on-court aesthetic. Y’all clearly need a refresher on Neapolitan, because it ain’t blue. Miami is wearing some kind of bubble gum/blue raspberry demon scoop, or the Trix yogurt that came with two colors in the cup.

  14. You need talent to win a title, but you also need the right talent. The 2017/18 Cavs had LeBron, Kyrie, Love, Wade, Rose, IT, Korver and more (not all at the same time, I don't think, but you get my point). Kyrie, Harden and KD are legit terrifying. LMA and Blake aren't. I don't think things have really changed that much. However, the Nets have depth to get through the East that the Sixers and Bucks don't. Assuming KD gets healthy. If he isn't, it's still wide open. Also remember when KD said he went east to prove himself? Lol.

  16. Steinbach Pistons This is by far my favourite redesign for two reasons. 1. They are my hometown Steinbach Pistons, a team I witnessed in person go from winning 12 games a year to winning a championship in 2013 to being in the hunt for the title every single season. And 2. I got to work with them a year and a bit ago to make these uniform and logo designs a reality. They have worn 2 of the 4 uniforms in my redesign. They use both logos I designed as well. I have designed maybe 4 uniforms for special events as well that they have worn in the past. The logo is simply a simplified version of their previous logo, with a couple other minor changes. I always disliked the realistic pistons they used, it made it so hard to embroider or put on any apparel. It just didn't make sense. So we worked together to make the new simplified version of their primary logo. Something that wouldn't change the brand a crazy amount, but would improve the look. I also convinced them to adopt a new alternate uniform, that includes a vintage car. The Pistons' first logo was an old car, but it was a pretty bad looking logo. It was bad enough for the team to stray from using a car at all, until I designed the current alternate logo that uses a car that has a lot of meaning in Steinbach. Steinbach is known as the Automobile City and we have the 'Big Red Car' as it's known as. A 1931 replica Rolls Royce. That was the inspiration for the new alternate logo, using a car that actually has meaning for the city of Steinbach. They have a shoulder patch for that uniform that was sketched out by the head coach's brother and I touched it up. As you might be able to tell, I'm very proud to have such a big part in this redesign turned real life. The retro uniform I added to the set is the uniform that the Pistons won their first ever championship in. Not my favourite design they have ever worn (obviously haha) but won that is now in the history books.

  22. Am I the only person who thinks this is an upgrade? The teal was a relic of the past and the logo needed an upgrade. While I do wish they would separate themselves a bit more from the Lakers, I think this is a step in the right direction while keeping the main identity intake. This is a great professional looking logo. My only tweak would be swapping the basketball for a spark. If you had to have a third color I think powder blue is better than teal.

  23. They should have kept the teal imo. I know they are gonna be thought of as the W Lakers essentially regardless but the extra color gave them more personality Logo itself it boring but whatever. This league just can't seem to keep itself away from mediocre and forgettable identities

  27. I always wished that the palm tree in their secondary logo (the basis for the new primary) used the spark burst at its center, like in the old primary. That was an elegant way to tie together the nickname and location. The sans-spark palm tree conveys LA Basketball Team, but has no connection to the Sparks name. I know that an effective sports logo doesn't always have to be a literal representation of the nickname, it just seems in this case like they could include that spark so easily. We already know it would work, because they themselves have shown us.

  28. Oh man...there's so many ways I can go with this. On the field, up until two years ago, the Titans' brand identity definitely wasn't everyone's cup of tea, but it was definitely unique. (By the way, regarding that former shoulder yoke, I'm pretty positive that was to evoke the fly of the Nashville city flag, just in luv-ya blue (or Titans Blue as they call it now) rather than yellow. And I *unpopular opinion alert* actually applaud the Titans for not going the predictable route and splattering Greek patterns onto their uniforms. (That said, I cringe to think what kay happen if the cats in Beaverton were to get their claws on that idea come the next Titans update in a few years-or so i hope.) I also don't share the angst for the flaming thumbtack that others do--i believe it was inspired by the flame of Prometheus, and it is if nothing else instantly recognizable (other than the Miami Heat, are there any other pro sports logos that resemble a fireball?). That said...the thing i could never and still can't figure out is why they don't prominently feature their supposed-to-be-signature color in and around their stadium and on their signage. Even going back to the days of Adelphia Coliseum, they barely used it--the stadium itself was most bare concrete and red. Two or three years back they painted some of the bare exterior navy and swapped out the entire upper bowl of seats, which were all red, with navy ones, so now even the sets are navy and red. The only place their Titans blue is prominent is in their pro shop (which let me tell you if you like that color, it will catch your attention FAST). Of course now that they've all but cast their supposed-to-be signature color into obsidian oblivion, it halfway doesn't even matter now--especially now that the Chargers are about to make their light blue even more prominent than the team thats supposed to own light blue in the NFL! But whatever. Some have said they'd like to see what their primary logo would look like on a [Titans] blue helmet. I'm sure there are some mocks somewhere, but here it is on a flag... It can work, but it very obviously wasn't designed to work on a light blue helmet (because you'd lose the light blue flames in the logo otherwise). IF Tennessee was to ever double down on their light blue (and I actually hope that one day they do), that logo would have to be retooled to suit--wouldn't take a lot of work, but they'd have to be smart about it. These images show that a heavily columbia-and-white identity can work... Of course the Titans themselves did a pretty good job of making this work at one point themselves... Sometimes you really don't know what you miss until it ain't here no more. I grew pretty fond of these uniforms during the time I lived in Nashville, and now, looking at these versus what they have now...it's rough.

  31. Grew up? I mean I guess it was around for almost 6 years... Yikes that makes me feel old... And that’s definitely an exception rather than a standard in hockey. Most shoulder yokes don’t reach down to include the nameplates. There’s very few in the NHL’s history, with most being sleeve-length yokes that include the nameplate. And personally I didn’t mind the nameplate-in-the-yoke road jersey for the Canes. That design was far from the worst thing about that look. The sheer blandness of the look was the real crime. It’s not like the Canes have been around for a long time to justify it. It was just boring. The home was worse during that era by comparison, but the road was still lacking some edge to it. Even now the current road is a little off. The striping pattern just isn’t bold enough for me, and the “CANES” wordmark was also a poor choice. That would fit better for an alternate jersey, rather than the main road.

  32. Rapids secondary now official, dubbed the “Class 5 Kit”: From the press release: “The topographic lines embossed throughout the kit are authentic Colorado maps of six 14,000 foot mountains - Grays Peak, Torreys Peak, Pikes Peak, Mt. Bierstadt, and Quandary Peak.” This is a really lovely effort IMO, even with the topographic lines being so subtle due to the embossed application. The lighter green could maybe stand to be a tad bit more saturated, but overall I love the color scheme and think the kit as a whole is a really clean, consistent, and classy look, especially with the darker green shorts.

  34. I can imagine. Several years ago, I was playing NBA Live, had a Bucks franchise going, and the next game happened to be against the Nets. The unis I picked were the 90s big deer greens for the Bucks, and the grays for the Nets. Horrible decision on my part, I could barely tell them apart. Other examples I remember seeing: a few years before the conference musical chairs, Texas A&M and Colorado faced off in the Big XII women's hoops tournament, the Aggies in silver and CU in gold. Whoever okayed that matchup should've been fired. Watched this game on TV...very much like the aforementioned Browns-Bengals orangefest. There are also a couple silver vs white college games I remember seeing at least one picture of: Army basketball vs Navy, and Nevada football vs somebody, can't remember who.

  38. Thanks, guys! I'm glad you guys received the concepts so well. I'll be doing some tweaks and recolorings later in this thread, but for now, he's flavor three. Flavor Three - MiMo Classic This one is a bit of a hodgepodge from a few designs. I loved the MiMo/Art Deco influence of the 2012-18 set (which had a godawful execution in a bunch of annoying ways), but I also wanted to pay tribute to the ‘93-’02 set’s color scheme. Those are the colors of the ‘97 champs and technically the ‘03 champs (beset by overdone black and outline fetish). The fans seem to love them, almost as much as the BiG for the Brewers or the split-lettering for the Blue Jays. It makes too much sense to bring them back. In the words of a ‘97 piece of media: So, I set about mixing the MiMo and ‘97 designs in a blender, seeing what would come out. It has its origins in my 2017 concept, with appropriate tweaks. The shades are the same ones from 1993, with Belgrad carrying the MiMo/Art Deco influence. My old primary design carries over, but rendered in the new colors. The “M” logo no longer features the leaping fish, but rather the fins of the fish on each side. I wanted to incorporate the fish elements subtly, akin to what the Diamonbacks did with snake imagery on the “A.” It produces a less complex insignia, one that calls to mind its IRL art influences and one that a child could draw well. A solo fish forms the tertiary. The uniforms use a lot of historical influences. The “Marlins” script combines a design similar to the International League Marlins with the tail of the ‘93-’02 home wordmark. Uniform numbers are double-outlined in Belgrad, which is such a fantastic MiMo/Art Deco font that I kinda want to do Heat and Dolphins concepts with it. Thicker stripes all around carry across the color scheme. With regards to the caps, I co-opted the teal-billed caps from the Portland Sea Dogs when they were a Marlins affiliate. It’s the perfect balance between the all-black and all-teal caps. The road uniform uses the “MIAMI” wordmark from my Gators concept, albeit rendered in the double-outline style. With the alternates, I opted for the most colorful routes. The teal jersey features an all-teal cap with teal undershirts, for a full blast of ‘93 (emulating their BP jersey). My black jersey features teal inner layers with silver on the furthest outline. The second set of alts include an all-teal accessory version of the home uniform, while I also employed a ‘97-styled alternate. The jacket is a pretty simple design, with a recolored “M” on the front and the cursive script on the back. This is a big stew of the two previous eras of Marlins baseball, with a few additional influences thrown in. C+C is appreciated, as always! Up next, some tweaking (e.g., the roundel, font things, etc.) and recolors. Big thanks to @MJD7 and @Marlins93 for their input on the design last year.

  39. I'm trying to think of NBA examples besides red vs. orange and white vs. gray, which I think were already mentioned in the other thread. This may not be the most egregious example out there, but in 2011 the Bucks played the Knicks in a green-vs.-blue matchup (this also happened to be Carmelo Anthony's debut as a Knick). Knicks were at home wearing blue throwbacks, Bucks wearing their regular road greens. Back then, color-on-color matchups were still somewhat rare in the NBA, so I remember this game looking pretty bad/weird and wondering why the Bucks didn't just wear their white jerseys to get better contrast. This was still before the NBA went insane; home teams back then normally wore white (or yellow), and on the rare occasion a home team ever wore their "road" color, the road team would normally just wear white. I mean it's not THAT close of a color matchup, but it's the best "older" NBA example I could remember that wasn't mentioned yet.

  40. With the NBA switching to Nike upon the expiration of Adidas' contract with the League at the end of this season, this thread will be where I'll share all of my designs. Ideally I want to create home and away uniforms for all 30 teams, but that may be a bit ambitious so we'll see what happens. I'll start with one uniform for each of the 16 playoff teams and then hopefully progress from there. This will be an exercise focusing primarily on colors, fonts, and minimalist design elements to create a clean and unique look for each team that reinforces or in some cases redesigns their brand. As always, any and all comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated! Indiana Pacers Away Uniform This takes the clean aesthetic of their current look and recalls the more yellow-centric color balance of their uniforms from the early '90s, adding a sublimated checkerboard racing stripe pattern along the side panels. Chicago Bulls Away Uniform While black is typically used as an alternate uniform color for the Bulls, the Jordan-era pinstripes were too classic to pass up. This look doesn't reinvent those classic jerseys so much as it simply reapplies it to the updated Nike Aeroswift jersey template.

  42. I’m still debating if they’ve got the worst now, but in my opinion the Titans have a bad look that is at the very least the cheesiest look in the league right now. “SWORDS EVERYWHERE” is a terrible theme, they look like if the Excalibur in Las Vegas fielded a football team. I wouldn’t have minded shoulder yokes that are shaped like a blade and filled in with one single color (preferably powder blue), but giving it a gray shadow and highlight to look like a real sword is WAY over the top and something I’m frankly stunned got the green light. That an experienced designer came up with that, shared it, and didn’t get a “you effing kidding me?” from whoever was calling the shots baffles me. Also, the side panels are very “thrown on” and purposeless. I’ve seen some people say here, “oh chill, you can’t even see them half the time”. Well, what’s the point of them then if I can’t see them half the time? I guess it shouldn’t have been there at all in the first place.

  44. Eh, I don’t see Bengals as generic. Yeah it’s another name for a tiger, so I’m glad they didn’t go with Cincinnati Tigers. Giants is debatable. I mean, the only instances you ever really hear about the name are New York and San Francisco. Are there any other sports leagues that have a Giants team? I could see Patriots as generic. You’ve got New England and the Atlantic Baseball League Somerset Patriots along with likely hundreds if not thousands of high schools with the nickname. I’d almost feel like Saints is a pretty regional heavy name. I don’t think I’ve heard of “Saints” outside of Louisiana.
