  1. Fun to look out, brings a new level of integrity to the brand. Digging the extent of which you took your concept; with the alternates and applications. With their preference for nostalgia and having one of the "untouchable" logos/brands in the NBA, and pro sports... this is what I'd imagine is the perfect fixer-upper, upgrade, to their logo. I could see Nike implementing this and the hype around it. While the departure from the multi-dimensional word mark makes me slightly miss it... I think this would be welcomed, fresh, new; after all these years of harsh criticisms by way of mediocrity. It's bold, it's classic, and it still keeps their timeless brand intact. I'd still be interested to see other ways their identity could be pushed further; but this is one of my favorites. Dope. Check my NBA rebrands out too, if you like.
  2. It's been entirely too long, CCSLC. How I've missed partaking here.. back after a few quieter years of browsing through. https://www.behance.net/gallery/76186641/Branding-Brooklyn-Jam Teaser image: For those of you that don't know me, I joined this board when I was all of 17 (almost 32 now)... and was part of a select assortment of designers, that started their careers on concepts made in MS Paint, (yes that MS Paint, in all of its pixelated nostalgia). Gained so much knowledge here, not just at the level of sports branding, but design in general. It's great to see how far Chris has brought this endeavor. I'd like to update you all with a recent project, involving the development of a charity basketball tournament, taking place annually in Brooklyn, NY, at the infamous Basketball City (2017) as well as Sportika Sports (2018). The tourney, in addition to a series of five-on-five games leading to a championship, for boys' in their junior high-high school years, boasts a robust dunk contest, featuring dunkers from TNT's Dunk King, and many guest appearances from current NBA players, and NY basketball legends (Charles Oakley, Larry Johnson, John Starks, Kyle O'Quinn, and Quincy Acy, to name a few). I've recently added the project to my Behance portfolio, and would like to share here. This, paired with the 2014 NBA Summer League design internship, were the closest I've come to professional sports branding. There's a project also on my Behance, dedicate to this intthat displays some of the creative from that year's Summer League, where I interned through the entirety of the 2-week rookie-packed event, as lead designer, in Las Vegas: https://www.behance.net/gallery/18595973/Designing-the-2014-NBA-Summer-League. (This page in my portfolio needs some serious updating, as I did with the Brooklyn Jam, but still shows the greater parts of the project. I've got more work to share, and I hope to be posting over the next few weeks, in tandem with updating my portfolios. I hope everyone from the days of yesteryear are doing well; designing and thriving. Looking forward to hearing from everyone!! Bonus content: MY OLD WEBSITE containing all of the MS PAINT madness!! Enjoy!! http://www.angelfire.com/va3/logoandunifrmconcpts/ **I admit that I've slacked tremendously on updating the NBA uniforms section of the site; most of which I created the images of each, currently on display. I have aspirations to jump back in this, though its a tedious task--I'd surely benefit from a team that could split some time on updating it. With all of the new Nike unis, its sure to be a heavy (but fun) lift.
  3. Full project here: https://www.behance.net/gallery/47660267/SD2LA-The-Los-Angeles-Breakers The beach. The palm trees. Hollywood. America's game in the City of Angels. Los Angeles deserves an NFL team that's undoubtedly, indigenously LA. With San Diego returning to it's roots after 55 years in San Diego, they are in need of a new brand. This brand should still pay some homage to the Charger days, but with a fresh take on the identity that also embraces LA, in equilibrium. I sought to feature the LA surf, sun and celebrity culture. I think this brand better speaks to the fan base in LA, versus just slapping "Los Angeles" in front of Chargers.
  4. A different direction from me... https://www.behance.net/gallery/47660267/SD2LA-The-Los-Angeles-Breakers
  5. I found this on Shutterstock.... which came first? Because somebody's not doing something right..or did Cleveland shutterstock their Dawg Pound logo? Lol, wouldn't put it past them. http://premier.shutterstock.com/image/detail-336886349/mascot-head-of-bulldog
  6. ALL STAR LOGO: Looks appropriate... for the D-League. The odd curvature, faux-iron work this time is laughable. The only good New Orleans NBA ASG logo was 2008 Shouldve never left Charlotte. 3 times in 8 years in New Orleans? C'mon, there's 29 other cities to choose from. WIZARDS: Perfect for its "stars and stripes" purposes. Nailed it. It's a beauty. Being a life long Wizards fan and living a few miles from the city, this level of creativity in a uniform is welcome. I finally like where their brand is headed. SIDE NOTE...I just met John Wall this weekend, that was kinda cool. He was wearing a throwback Kevin Garnett rookie jersey.
  7. Version A is solid. I hope they go in a similar route, but maybe less like the original logo.

    Kodrinksy man, wow impressive, the attention to detail and accuracy and Kobe court seals the deal. I think the more important question is, is anyone going to add these to the mother ship? I know it's cumbersome. I could, but I haven't much time in my hands currently, and I still haven't even had the time to add new Jazz & Kings unis yet. Who else mods the NBA section? These should, with the permission of Kodrinsky, all go up, ASAP.
  9. No problem. My fault. But still... Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo lol, could've been worse. I'm pretty sad. I was spent on my metallic gold purple and silver. The NBA often doesn't go the extra leap. Sad, considering we have an entire community here on how to better sports branding. If there were no fans, there would be no game
  10. False. All the speculation is that black is gone. No one confirmed the remaining colors. This is a mock up prediction. Official logos haven't been unveiled and no one knows the scheme yet. Thats not the official look. All that's drawn from this is see ya never black
  11. I'm not going to do any updates with red and blue. I really doubt they'll head that direction..plus it's not making sense because those were primarily Cincy/KC days
  12. And here's how these uniforms could play out.. I hope. I'm not sure that they'd put "SAC" on a uniform..but they need at least one uni with the home city name. Sacramento's too long, unless you condense it. Which no wordmark in their new brand is condensed. All extended. I'm expecting something conservative with minor new/different nuances
  13. Their argument is because the Lakers and Kings are in the same state. But definitely right. No one's confusing the Lakers for another team any time soon.
  14. That had the ugly script throwback, numerals, number on the chest above the wordmark and weird pattern and trim. The hues were also different. That's why it was poorly received *AND Shiny fabric* A combination for disaster With the new logos and wordmarks, they can pull it off much better
