  1. Hi take a look on my last work hope you'll enjoy it....
  2. Hi everyone! I'll be posting my G League uniform concepts here. I doubt I'll finish them all but I'll try my best . I've been really disappointed with the branding and aesthetics of G League teams. They have the same colors and worse — team names as their parent clubs which doesn't give them unique identities. The generic uniforms don't exactly help either. My goal is to make the G League uniforms better than their parent clubs . They will use a different set of colors inspired by their NBA counterpart's history. But I will make use of their current logos and wordmarks so the teams would still feel familiar. I really liked what the WNBA has done with their color on color matchups so I would also apply that here. Enough with the blabbering and lets get to the concepts!
  3. Hey new member here I'm a full time designer that puts together Portland Trail Blazers edits, concepts, and more in my spare time. I recently put together a uniform concept for the Blazers right before they were officially unveiled and thought I'd share the template I made with you all. Details: - 1920 x 1080 - Fully customizable - PSD (CS6+) Download Link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/scfjwcx5v56nui1/uniformnikeblank.psd?dl=0
  4. Rip-off time! Who do you think will earn the right to lose to the Clippers Lakers?
  5. Just for fun. May turn in to a series. First up - Sacramento Kings. The baby blue, white, and red uniforms originally worn back in the 80's. Throughout the years the Kings have worn them as hardwood classic jersey and more recently they've been the inspiration behind the Kings' city uniforms. collage by NBA Uniforms Project, on Flickr I wanted to keep this trend going for the Kings. However, I also wanted to change it up a bit considering that we will likely see a new city uniform every year. For 2019/20 I designed the Kings city uniform to be predominately white. I was also inspired by the retro Kings' (Royals) jersey with bold simple piping. A little more modern by not including a wordmark - idea was that the colors and design should be easily identifiable. Retro Kings wordmark on shorts and regal emblem on waist band. Thoughts? C&C always appreciated. SacKingsCity by NBA Uniforms Project, on Flickr
  6. I was thinking recently about options the Heat could take for their City Edition set, now that they have cycled through all of the Vice colors. I figured it'd be fun to give a concept a go, myself. As I was exploring some options, I came to really love the idea of an orange uniform; although orange was a secondary/trim color from 1988-1999, the Heat have never worn an orange uniform. I also realized that 1) historical elements of the team's uniform history could mesh well with an orange uniform, and 2) orange would fit thematically as a nod to Miami sunset scenery. The result is the following: The uniform is, of course, primarily orange and trimmed with red, black, and white. I love the Vice "Miami" script, and wanted to keep it alive here. The inaugural gradient ball returns here as the primary logo of this City Edition campaign, and unlike the inaugural uniforms, the logo would be applied on the shorts in its true gradient form. Finally, the drop shadow numbers return! I think the 80's South Beach vibe that the Heat push with the Vice set is very fun, and I wanted to keep pushing it in some form here, hence the heavy inspiration from the inaugural set. I would eventually like to design a whole lot of other assets to go with the uniform in order to illustrate the entire City Edition campaign; the goal is to include a court, warmups, merchandise mockups, social media mockups, and other marketing mockups (posters, billboards, etc.). As I work on and finish those, I will post them here as a series to keep the thread and project going. I'll likely think of new things to mockup as I go! Any and all C&C would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for viewing!
  7. I wasn't sure where to put all of these, so I figured I'd start a new thread of small little finds I found while browsing the 'net -- and specifically, right now -- Getty Images. Most of these are small oddities, difficult finds and what not. I was going to open this up to stuff I found in other sports, but basketball and NBA history in the 70s and 80s has recently captured my attention. Anyways ... some of my finds: GORGEOUS Color vs. Color in Baltimore against the Bullets and Warriors (also note it's Ladies Night!) Royals vs. Warriors game in Phoenix's Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The caption says it was a 1967 pre-season game. Note Rick Barry in the old-style Warriors' jersey. He never wore these in the regular season as 'The City' jerseys were introduced on Opening Night 1967. Larry Nance wearing #6 in the half season right after he was traded to Cleveland from Phoenix. Similarly, Kevin Johnson wore #11 in Phoenix for the half season after he was traded from Cleveland to Phoenix. Interesting font and styling of Tom McMillen's name on this Hawks' jersey. Not sure why the underline? Notice the name on the back of Dave Stallworth of the Bullets. The name was pretty long so the "st" of Stallworth is white to not clash with the blue stripe.
  8. While there is this movement for the new Washington NFL name, I was thinking about Washington's NBA team, the Wizards. Everyone hates the name and the logo has gone further away from that name. So I was thinking what if they finally change the name to something more appropriate? To go along with NHL's Capitals and MLB's Nationals, the name should be more DC centric. One name that always pops up is Metros. I think that name needs work, then I saw a defunct MLS name the NY/NJ Metrostars. And that actually fits with the logo itself, a DC landmark and a star! So I just changed the bottom of the logo and removed one of the red lines. And just for fun, I made a secondary logo with a basketball and star in the middle with W and M on the top and bottom
  9. 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.
  10. Here's my crack a Sonics redesign, one of dozens among this site. The new Climate Pledge Arena made me think about this. The way this template is set up only allowed me to do a green jersey, but I'm working on a white one.
  11. Since Nike is going to be the new jersey supplier for the NBA I made some concepts to show my take on the new jerseys. I used the USA olympic jersey featuring a nike vapor jersey and made my own mockup on it, to get the realistic stitching details on the numbers and logo I used a photoshop action called realistic stitching action to make it look realistic as possible. I hope you guys enjoy! Half way done the other half of the NBA will be uploaded as soon as possible. Feedback would be helpful!!
  12. Okay so just to start off, I have no design sense whatsoever. So now that that's out of the way, let's get to the concept. I'm not really bored as much as I am lazy under the COVID-19 stuff, so I have forced myself to try to do something. I guess I'll try to design logos or something because why not. First, let's come up with a quirky and cool name. Under quarantine... what rhymes with quarantine... sixteen! Like a bracket! Because March! ..Right? Anyway, I decided I'd make concept logos for each major league, four for the NBA, NHL, MLB, and NFL, but I also want to do soccer, so throw in two for the MLS, making it eighteen. You may be thinking, that doesn't work for a bracket, and you're smart and you know that's right. But I came up with this brilliant idea at one in the morning, and when I woke up, I had already made a logo and posted it on Instagram so oh well let's make it up as we go. (why is the process of uploading images so strange?) Anyway, as you can see, I am very mature and professional. I tried to turn the toilet paper roll into a lowercase "q" (kinda like the Flyers with the "p"), but I don't think I really succeeded. I have mostly branded the series with just a single roll, and sports can be switched out by shoving them in the middle. I compiled a list of 36 cities and took to my Instagram and polled the poop out of the 12 people that follow me until it was down to the 18 logos to be made (if I stay motivated that long)
  13. This recent Ringer article prosing the NBA return with a 20 team group stage that leads directly into the 8 team second round of the playoffs has me thinking. I'm not sure if it is a good idea, but it is definitely exciting. So I was thinking what if that just became a permanent fixture going forward? What if the NBA playoffs replaced the first round with a 20 team group stage? While it would add 4 more teams (which I don't think is a good thing in isolation), it would result in a more interesting round of basketball than the first round normally produces with only 2 or so exciting series and several 4 or 5 game series. It would also guarantee every playoff team plays 8 games (assuming it is a round robin format with each team playing a home and away with the other teams in the group, like the article suggests). That would add up to a total of 80 meaningful basketball games instead of 44 or so (guesstimating each 1st round series lasts an average of 5.5 games). Now here is were I start brainstorming some new ideas. The NBA season is long enough anyways, and I'm sure star players don't want to give up the potential of a 4 game sweep and rest in the first round, so let's shorten the season to 72 or 74 games. Now we're down 114 games (if we cut 10 per team), which I know will cause problems with tv deals, revenue sharing, etc. From a fan standpoint though, we probably don't lose too many meaningful games. To balance it out, let's throw the 5 teams from each conference that missed the playoffs into their own groups to play another 8 games each. From there, the top 2 teams from each group advance and are joined by the 12 teams eliminated from the playoff groups for a 16 team, single elimination tournament. What are all these teams playing for? Well, the number 1 overall pick (maybe a draft lottery still exists for picks 2-5 while the rest slot in order of record, or something like that). Now, this tournament for the number 1 pick adds another 55 meaningful games (40 from group play and 15 from the tournament). We're still down 63 games, but every team gets to end their season with 8 or so meaningful games. There are some obvious criticisms, like the worst team would probably never get the number 1 pick and would have a challenge improving. We're still losing games. The best teams might feel group play is less fair than giving them a number 1 seed and home court advantage against a lower seed. There could also be a scenario where a top team gets upset in group play and then routes the teams in the consolation bracket for the number 1 pick (I'd call this a feature, not a bug, but you might not like it). It probably also favors mid-tier playoff teams getting the top draft pick. Though only 1 team can actually win the number 1 pick while the rest still draft based on record, and a single elimination tournament is more open to chaos that could allow a weaker team to upset a better team. Anyways, this was just an idea I wanted to put out there. For this season, I like the group stage idea (in a vacuum where we aren't really debating whether or not the NBA should even return), and it made me think about what could happen permanently. If you think this is the dumbest idea you've ever read, I won't take it personally. If you have some tweaks or suggestions, share them! I don't think it is realistic to expect this kind of change, but it is a fun thought experiment and we don't have sports right now to have real discussion about.
  14. Hello, it's my first time in a good while doing a logo series, but I thought I had some stuff worth sharing. This little series is based on the premise of the owners of the Milwaukee Bucks deciding to expand on their sports holdings and launch expansion teams in various other leagues. I have dubbed this hypothetical enterprise the Deer Sports Empire. Currently, aside from the Bucks they own the Wisconsin Herd. I will be leaving the logos for those teams as is, partially because I really like them and partially because the idea is the owners are launching new teams with similar branding touches (colors, font, etc). I also will not be touching MLB or giving them an NFL team as there's no world where those things would happen. These are the teams and leagues I plan to do so far. A couple are already done or close to finished. As suggestions (hopefully) are made and new ideas come to me I may add to this list. If anyone has a team in a league they would like to see, feel free to make suggestions. I dont have uniform templates for all the different sports so I'm just focusing on uniforms right now.

  16. Redoing this concept yet again. (Original: https://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/119787-kansas-city-stealth-nba/) The Kansas City Stealth would be an expansion NBA team located in Kansas City, Missouri. Kansas City would be a good basketball market, as it's less than an hour away from the University of Kansas, and plays host to the Big XII Basketball Tournament, as well as several March Madness games each year. The sport is very popular in the KC area and in Missouri as a whole, and would garner a following in both Missouri and Kansas. The home games would be played at the Sprint Center in Downtown Kansas City, and the team would be in the Western Conference. The name "Stealth" comes from the B-2 Spirit Bomber (often referred to as just a "Stealth Bomber"), which is based at Whiteman Air Force Base, less about an hour or 2 away from Kansas City. I did some updates to the logo (it's a new bomber, my design skills have improved from the old one). The fonts, monograms, color, and wordmarks have stayed the same. Main Logos: Horizontal Logos (showing the new bomber): Monograms: Heart Logos (Kansas City is known as the "Heart of America". The symbol is very common around KC). Wordmark (not much change here): Uniforms: Uniform Explanations Home/Away/Alternates on 1st row: Same as the last concept City Home and Away (Primary): Feature the heart logo on a background of 2 crossed lines (to represent the "Crossroads of America"). Instead of saying "Kansas City" or "Stealth", the jerseys say "Heart of America" (explained above) City Home and Away (Alternates): Feature a faded fountain design, that wraps from the front to the back of the jerseys. Kansas City is also known as the City of Fountains (it has a lot of nicknames). Throwback: Features the same colors as the Kansas City Kings did before moving to Sacramento. The sponsor is Sprint, which is headquartered in Kansas City. C&C Welcome and Appreciated.
  17. Hello all! Recently I fell into an obsession with NBA 2k20, and after seeing the customization options available in franchise mode, I picked up the Sacramento Kings and moved them back to their original home (and my hometown...) Rochester, NY! Did this pretty quickly and it's just for my fun video game team, so not a seriously thought out suggestion or plausibility. So I whipped up a simple identity system for them, blending elements of the past to create a simple, old school, regal lookin basketball club. I wanted to stick with only one color, as I wish there were more of those (like the Celtics). For uniforms, I wanted simplicity and stripes. And check out those old school Royals shorts, HAD to include them in the alternate). Used some Rochester icons as the nameplates! Finally, put them on the team in game and we're looking like kings of the court (with new draft pick Peja Stojakovic!) Thanks for lookin!
  18. This is my first real shot at a uniform concept. I'm very new to photoshop but I think now is the best time to learn, as I've been infatuated with uniform design since I was young. I didn't want to just copy/paste the Mavs logo from the 80s & 90s so I did make my own version of a very similar logo, but I admit I was more focused on the uniforms than creating a logo.
  19. Hello everyone! I'm going to be sharing my NBA concepts: I started these two years ago, then in this time I redid everything like two or three times before having the almost final version. I’ll post with home/road/third/alternate jerseys for each team and then maybe I'll post some outtakes or other proposal. Before I get into it, major thanks to all the other designers on these boards who keep putting out inspiring stuff. All comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated! 1)Milwaukee Bucks 2)Indiana Pacers 3)Utah Jazz
  20. This concept of mine has been in the works for a while. I keep on refining it and I think I'm in a good spot to share with the public for some ideas of what works an does not work. I'm not completely sure about the court design. I can't decide if it is too much for just right. Anyway here is the background on the logo. With the popularity of the Golden Knights there is much talk about Vegas getting an NBA team. Now when the NHL gave Vegas a team the league strictly said no gambling nicknames and I am sure the NBA would say the same. So I came up with the idea of Atoms because of the A-Bomb testing in Nevada during World War 2. In fact there were actually viewing sites in Las Vegas during this period in history. Plus the Atomic museum is in Vegas if you ever wanted to check it out on your next trip. The main logo is a mushroom cloud with a red basketball in the center. Below the ring is the State of Nevada with the nuclear symbol (also in the red basketball in the mushroom cloud) where Las Vegas is located. The variation logos are just different segments of the main logo. The alt. logo is a basketball with atoms spinning around it but the circular atoms have been replaced by the famous Vegas stars that you see on the world famous Welcome To Las Vegas Sign. Colors of Red, dark red, silver and ash grey are colors that fit with the area already and similar to UNLV because they put Vegas on the map for basketball in the 90's. I think I'm in a good place but would love to see what others think.
  21. I'll be posting uniform concepts for the following all star games (hopefully I finish them all ) : Los Angeles (2018) Charlotte (2019) Chicago (2020) Indiana (2021) Cleveland (2022)
  22. Hello! I just want to start a concept topic about a mashup of logos of the franchises from each city. The result will be a logo for each city (in NY and LA two logos) representing the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL and MLS teams. So, this is the first one: Los Angeles (part I). -City: Los Angeles -Colours: Los Angeles Lakers colours (purple (#552583 ) and gold (#fdb927) -LA letters from the Los Angeles Lakers jersey logo -Ram head from the Los Angeles Rams logo -'Los Angeles' name from the Los Angeles Dodgers jersey logo -Baseball from the Los Angeles Dodgers logo -Crown from the Los Angeles Kings logo -Shape from the LA Galaxy logo Thank you for your time here.
  23. I know, it's yet another Seattle concept... What can I say, I get excited! Here's my take on the return of the Sonics: For some reason, the Sonics only ever had one logo with a plane, and even so it was ridiculously small. Here, it's front and center! The primary logo has a motion line around the Space Needle, influenced by the campy '90s logo. The secondary logo is my modernization of the classic skyline logo. The font is modified Daggersquare. The two main jerseys sport the Sonics' traditional curved stripe + wordmark. The side paneling has a sound wave pattern. The city jersey is inspired by Seattle's aviation history. I think Seattle's "Jet City" nickname would be an apt Sonics response to "Rip City," "Buzz City," etc. The color is from Seattle's flag, with a cloudy sky pattern for the side paneling. Finally, to add some retro yellow to the set, the throwback is the beautiful 1971 jersey. Let me know what you think! I'll post my court designs soon. EDIT 10-27: Added a logo update. Original versions here.
