  1. This will always be a pet peeve of mine. The adidas stripes that change color when wearing contrasting jerseys and shorts. Just don't have stripes on one or the other so the color visually carries through. Red circle = bad. Blue circle = good. This would look much nicer if both these teams just didn't have shorts stripes. Or have monochrome stripes on the shorts. Ugh.
  2. I 100% agree. It bugs the hell out of me. If they have to stripe it (and they don't), I wish they'd do more monochrome stripes so it doesn't dominate the design.
  3. Disagree on the earned jerseys. The basic home/aways are great. The city jersey is also great with the Mardi Gras sorority girl thing going on. But the earned edition, with the Mardi Gras jerseys recolored in team colors? Weak and uninspired. It's not like the city jerseys are good design, they just took a ubiquitous NOLA look and made a jersey out of it. When you recolor it, it loses its connection to the city and just becomes a weird, horizontal striped Pelicans jersey. But overall, you're right. The Pels have a great look and it is very underrated.
  4. Here's my contribution... I think this set of Bucks uniforms are among the absolute best in the league, and they're constantly overlooked. The logos are good, the colors are great (and have meaning to the city), and the designs are coherent across all four sets (but not just identical recolorings) . . . I love 'em.
  5. There’s a really underrated NBA uniform in that photo, but it isn’t the Bobcats.
  6. Weird colors, bad logos, jumbled striping, stupid piping, pinstripes, checkerboard, strange collars, knock-off Mavs wordmarks . . . . all the Bobcats sets are trash. They're not underrated, they're bad. I don't get it.
  7. Oh yes, the Nuggets rainbow uniforms. These are super underrated. I'm surprised no one ever talks about bringing these back, they're always overlooked.
  8. Just here to chime in and say this work has been phenomenal. Austin, SLC, NJ, and Nashville are my favorites. SLC is especially nice, the crest is original and modern and kits bring the rebrand to life. I love your willingness to branch out of the traditional sports team color schemes and explore a wider pallette. It makes for a much better league when each franchise owns a unique color scheme. Nice work! Just so it isn't all rainbows and high fives, I do have some nits to pick. . . I don't see the need to change Houston from the Dynamo to the Apollos. They're both silly, American-ized, futuristic terms. I don't really see the value in going from one to the other, especially when the new branding and colors would fit just as well with the Dynamo. Secondly, I love the moon kit, but I think it needs black shorts and socks. It doesn't feel right to have the moon graphic just stop arbitrarily on the jersey, but have the rest of the kit continue with monochrome color scheme. Next, the 'Q' in the Quakes crest seems a bit off. I think the circle just needs to be larger, as currently the diagonal slash is disproportionate. Even just scaling it up 10% - 20% would probably get the job done. Again though, amazing work. I'm finding this whole series very inspiring!
  9. I love that you're taking the time to work on this! Your original template is very good and I actually like the thick lines and slightly curved sides. It feels like a good graphic representation. The thing I'd love to see is a front / back view of the shorts, instead of (or in addition to) the side view. I wouldn't do too much though, it's already very nice.
  10. I don’t see it, but I love the concept. I agree with the idea that incorporating an LA into the facemask would be a really nice touch.
  11. There is... @Hoopladawg87 generously let me use his template. I shouldn't pass it around, but if you wanted to message him, he might be willing to help you out. Thank you!
  12. I love those TCU uniforms. The Black Panther reference was what I thought of too. It's bold and futuristic, but it makes sense. It looks good. Nice work, TCU. Looking forward to seeing them on the field.
  13. Thank you all for the kind words! This was a look that I was excited to share, I'm glad it was well received! I also wanted to do a Phoenix script on one of them, but just swapping out the word really didnt look right. There is something so strong about SUNS on a jersey that the longer word didn't give me. The proportions were just wrong. I'll work in a Phoenix script for the City edition. A different wordmark with a different jersey design altogether should work better. Well . . . . here you go! Doesn't quite pop as much as I prefer, but it's still fun.
