  1. You guys dig the light blue, huh? OK then, I'll keep trying to figure out how to work that into the uniform more without throwing off the overall look. In the meantime, I've also been toying with an idea for a Mavs logo for a while now, and thought I'd see if anyone had an opinion about that as well. I've added it to the original post.
  2. Oh, that third one wasn't actually intended to be a third uniform, just a different version of the second. I couldn't make up my mind whether to keep the two-tone piping or just make it all green. I still tried making a light blue alternate like you said, though. Unfortunately, I couldn't quite make it work. The lighter tones just didn't quite seem to "fit" the harder Western styling. Oh well. Thanks for the feedback!
  3. Oh, almost forgot to mention that some elements of this design were inspired by patsox's concept here. Credit where credit's due.
  4. In response to the announcement that the Mavs may be redesigning their uniforms, here's my first-draft attempt. - Brings green back into the color scheme - Side striping designed to resemble a horse's stirrups - Lone Star of Texas forms the notch in the shorts - Western typeface and styling evoke a more distinctively Texan identity HOME: AWAY: AWAY (alternative version if you don't want a third color in your color scheme): Any feedback is much appreciated. UPDATE: I've also been toying with an idea for a Mavs logo (unrelated to the above concept) for a while now, so I thought I'd see what you all thought about that as well. Obviously, this is far from a finished concept -- not only is it currently using a design recycled from another team's defunct logo (Detroit's), but the execution in general is still really sloppy. This is more a "proof of concept" thing, just to see if the idea might be worth refining some more. The basic idea is a horse's head that resembles the state of Texas when turned upside-down (the ambigram wordmark is just sort of an extra). It could be used as a secondary court logo or something. Thoughts?
  5. Also, I'd just like to point out the irony of saying all that on a website which uses a red-white-and-blue color scheme and has a maple leaf in its logo, haha.
  6. I'm not Canadian, so take my opinion with a grain of salt here, but I think part of the reason why teams like the Blue Jays and Raptors use the leaf is because they're the only Canadian teams in their respective leagues, so in a big way, they ARE representing the entire nation of Canada, and not just their particular city. Having said that, I'll also admit I didn't realize how many other Canadian teams also use the leaf in their logos, so I can understand why Canadian sports fans might be getting a little tired of it. As an American, I'm personally pretty tired of all the red-white-and-blue teams, so I can relate.
  7. Sorry to disappoint, but I didn't plan on doing anything as far as uniforms. I had to choose, though, I'd probably go with something like Dave Ship's concept from this thread (the CN tower on the alt uni is a really creative touch), or just stick with what they already have. Conrad's concept from this thread would also be pretty cool for an alternate.
  8. HawkeyHouse & aci: Yep, the circle was only added for the midcourt logo; otherwise, the halfcourt line gets in there and muddles things up. No problem with me if you guys think the stand-alone logo by itself is better without it. Although the circle-less version actually looked pretty naked and incomplete as a midcourt logo, so I think it all works out. As for the black court: I know people tend to either love or hate colored courts, but I'll admit I'm one of the ones who loves them. To me, having every court in the NBA be the same old plain hardwood just gets samey and boring after a while. I know, I know, it's tradition and all; but still... GeauxColonels: Good point about the font. Unfortunately, I was just going off the Raptors' existing wordmarks found on this site, so there wasn't much alternative for the baselines aside from what they had already used before. But luckily, when I took your other suggestion about centering the logo, the extra wordmark ended up looking redundant anyway (good call Whittier S), so the problem took care of itself! Here's the updated version:
  9. One more update, with a variation on dp's concept from this thread. (Hope you don't mind, dp; that concept was just too killer to pass up.) Here's everything from the whole thread in one big image:
  10. Thanks for the feedback everyone, glad you like it! Here are some slightly bigger versions if anyone cares:
  11. Ah, good suggestion. Here we go: (I will say, though, that I'd like to see the Hawks using the "ATL" branding a little more; it seems more marketable for a team that, frankly, needs it.)
  12. Hi everybody, new member here. Just thought I'd post this and see if anyone had any thoughts on it. (By the way, please forgive the poor image quality; this was a fairly quick-and-dirty effort.) To start, here's the Hawks' current look. Great lines and curves, but the red-white-and-blue color scheme has become a bit boring and generic now that five different NBA teams are using it. Here's my new color scheme concept, designed to sort of resemble the colors of an actual red-tailed hawk: Updated logos: New court design possibilities: Retro-style uniforms for throwback nights:
