  1. I hear you on the lettering and will try some of those suggestions. I previously had the ball laces at the angle of the current Suns logo and also tried the straight on angle with tapered lines. The advice I got from the pros was to go with a symmetrical look for this design since everything else about it is mostly symmetrical and the tapered lines don't fit with the rest of the lines here. It did look a bit odd when I tried it...
  2. See update - would love your thoughts!
  3. Here's an update after getting help from Todd Radom, Ross Yoshida and others. This may be the final or very close to it. Added and refined sunburst, enlarged wordmark, made ball symmetrical, removed strokes and shadowing, added "banner" behind SUNS. Seems to fit well at scale with other logos and really stands out in a good way. Thoughts?
  4. Will continue to work on the Phoenix mark, but what do you think about this burst behind the ball?
  5. I definitely have the sunburst in mind and will keep playing with it, just don't want to mimic the past logos too much. Already have the same ball for the most part so want to try and avoid anything else being too similar. Thanks for the suggestions!
  6. I'm working on a complete redesign of the Phoenix Suns and looking for feedback on this logo. I have a complete uniform set nearly done that I will share soon, but wanted to start here. I also have this in a non-gradient version with the ball solid orange. The colors are new, slightly different from past hues of purple, orange and red the team has used before. I really want to give the team a bold, new look that is inspired by the past and has a retro vibe without simply refreshing designs of the past. I've been guilty of doing that myself as a uniform designer and I have a Suns redesign contest in the works that will require entrants to bring new ideas to the table, which inspired me to try some new things with this set I'm working on. Would love to get your thoughts on what works, what doesn't, etc. I've shared this with some trusted friends and mentors, including Brandon Moore, and everyone seems to love it so far but I'm open to suggestions because I really want this to be perfect. Look forward to hearing from the community and sharing the rest of this project. My previous Suns concepts have done pretty well within the Suns community so I expect this will get some decent buzz when I release the whole thing.
  7. Nice work on this! Been fun "helping" along the way. You have a great eye and you're very talented. Keep at it and you will go far!
  8. Since the Kraken just debuted their awesome new S logo and the Mariners already have one, let's see who can create the best S logo for the Seahawks to go along with them. Can just be for fun, but offering a bunch of free PSD mockup templates from my site to the best design as a prize. Link to Twitter post if you want to post your design there or just post in here. Really looking forward to seeing what the community comes up with! Hoping to get some good submissions and announce a winner after the weekend.
  9. Created this and giving it away at Uni Mockups. Doing a design contest and the winner gets $100 cash.
  10. You're right, they are different. I tried making them identical but it doesn't look right. I'll keep playing with it until I find the perfect shade that works in all spots. Thanks!
  11. Thanks! If only I could get the Suns and Nike on board with that, lol.
  12. Thanks so much! Definitely a local, lol.
  13. Coyotes are coming soon! The khaki is the Haboob Edition based on massive dust storms we get here in Phoenix. Not something that would be a primary jersey, just a concept for a quirky alternate. Thanks for the feedback!
  14. Like most fans, I was really disappointed with the unveiling of the new orange Suns jersey. It just seemed like very little thought or effort went into the design, the orange looks off-color and the organization continues to be deaf to what the fans want. So, inspired by all the ruckus, I started pumping out designs I thought would be better. Here's a look: I started with what would be my take on the jersey they released. Not a design I would have done unless forced. I enlarged the burst and added a purple outline, then off-centered the numbers a bit. The trim is classic and gives it a pop that the real version lacks. Next I did what I think they should have done if truly trying to give a nod to the 7SOL era. My first completely original design came next. I actually don't love the circle in the center, but the concept itself feels strong and could be improved if I wanted to spend the time, but I came up with better. My next design is my favorite, so I did it in all colors to see what they'd look like. A nod to the 90s era without being too much like it. Something that would stand out in today's NBA and could be used for a long time without looking too dated. Next I did my update of the classic 90s burst jerseys, removing the ball and just retaining the burst trail lines. I gave it a more extreme angle to indicate more of a rise (the sun rises, a phoenix rises, etc.). The number is placed within the burst trail, rather than below. The font for the wordmark and number are the same, which was not the case with the 90s jerseys. Also, the font is an updated look, not the exact font from the original jerseys. I did many colorways for this design. I also did these mock-ups of a design from @KUNG_FU_KELLY_ on Twitter. I think these are awesome. He did a mock-up using MS Paint and I helped him bring it to life. I've always thought all the local teams should have one game each season where they wear the colors of another local team, so I thought I'd play with the concept. Would be cool to see this happen in lots of cities. Also took a stab at the old western style. Played with size, position and spacing of wordmark and numbers on these. Finally, here's some other ideas I played around with. The Haboob Edition: An orange version of the original (don't mind the quality of the graphic - I couldn't find a HQ version online and got tired of searching): Some City Edition ideas using the AZ state flag design: Using the concept of the sun as a cosmic entity, rather than the Arizona heat and/or sunset correlation: Would love to get feedback on these. I'm truly inspired by and fueled by fans who are loving these designs on Twitter/Instagram/Reddit. Many are tagging the Suns and Nike and telling them to hire me, LOL. I'm also working on designs for other teams and will do some NFL and MLB concepts, as well. Thanks for giving me a place to share and get feedback!
  15. I did this mock for a buddy who wanted to see the bucks in Packers colors after I showed him my Suns/Cardinals and Suns/Dbacks crossovers.
