  2. Submissions are up for the contest: https://www.sportsblog.com/thenextnbpalogo# Give mine a vote if you like it! (name is Anthony Paes)
  3. In terms of linking the team's name to their market, Golden State is too broad and San Francisco is too narrow. If they can figure out a way to represent the entire Bay Area in the name, that is the way to go. I like the idea of "Golden Bay Warriors", or maybe even "Bay City Warriors".
  4. Primary logo - the Skyline is a close replication of the skyline in the original "semi-circle" Sonics logo... I did think about modernising the skyline and introducing buildings of other shapes, but was worried this could overcomplicate things. I did have a version of the logo with a big "S" and small wordmark - not sure what the exact NBA regulations are, but it was my understanding that a primary logo had to contain both the city name and team name. 2nd/3rd/alt - The monochrome skyline is by far my favourite of the alt logos - I think it would work great on merchandise and TV graphics etc. I know what you mean about the split S; I'm still not 100% sold on it, but I stuck with it to tie in with the trim on the jerseys. Wordmark - the TT ligature has pretty much been a hallmark of all Sonics wordmarks throughout their history. Uniforms - I really didn't want to put outlines on the no's & marks, but couldn't help myself. Case in point the current Sixers jerseys, which a lot of people view as "unfinished" without an outline. Still, might have another look and see if it can work in this case.
  5. Okay, managed to get the full size image up... had to use Flickr instead of Photobucket in the end. Enjoy!
  6. yeah, as I said, I tried to link to the full-size on photobucket, but got the message: "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community" the photobucket full-size file ends in .jpg~original, so I'm guessing that's what is causing the problem... has anyone else experienced this or know how to fix it? Click the switch top left. Remove the extra characters after the file extension so it is just .jpg or whatever you use. Yeah, that's what I did, but then it displays the smaller version unfortunately. Photobucket seems to require the "~original" extension to link to the full-size image. Very annoying...

  8. A few months back when it seemed the Kings were headed north, I put together this re-brand for the impending return of the Sonics to be NBA. Alas, we may not be seeing the return of basketball in the Emerald city for a little longer yet, but I thought I might as well share this with you all... As you can see, I've tried to incorporate elements from just about every era of Sonics history - overall the visual identity is simple and classic, and would hopefully stand the test of time. C&C very much appreciated - I'm interested to see what everyone thinks. ***thanks to Weatherman for the court template! hmm, that's odd - I tried to link to the full-size image on photobucket, but I get the message: "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community" ...i'm guessing this is because the full-size photobucket url ends with .jpg~original anyone know a way around this??

    Thanks very much CDixon! I wasn't aware someone had put those together.

    Name That Font!

    Hi all, looking for the serif font that many NBA teams use for NOB of jerseys (top one in the image below). Quite possibly a custom font, but does anyone know of something similar?
  12. Re the TBC Thunder alternates, I don't actually mind the simple navy / white colour scheme... for me it's more the Royals vertical wordmark template that's a complete disconnect with their branding to date (however flawed that branding might be). Here's a quick mockup maintaining the two-tone simplicity, but with a modern wordmark (pulled from their logo) to better suit the team's identity:
  13. Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Fair call on the vertical numbers, probably not a go. Just out of curiosity, has an NBA team ever used vertical numbers on the front of a jersey? Here's a version with horizontal & white numbers as suggested. Not quite sure the white works, but let me know what you think: Here's another one - the same but with orange numbers (I think I prefer this one): And one more - this time with the horizontal wordmark on the front as well:

    NHL meets AFL

    As a Rugby League fan living in Sydney, I am obliged to hate this series... but I don't, I love it! It's amazing how well some of these work, considering the different shapes / traditions of the jerseys between the two sports. I think the Hockey designs are more cool, if for nothing else, than to see you go a bit wild with the AFL team's branding/style (given AFL guernseys are pretty conservative generally and rarely change). Oh, and maybe the Minny North Stars alternate could work as the Australia jersey for International Rules play!
  15. Nice work. I'm not usually a fan of large sublimated / watermark logos, but this kind of works behind the number. Liking the straighter side panels. I'm quite partial to the Hawks current strip, but these are probably a slight upgrade IMO. Look forward to seeing more!
