  1. Welcome to what is now my first completed concept series, the NHL City Mashup Series! In this series, I will be taking the identity of each NHL team and combining it with the identity of another team (different sport) in that team's city. Some rules I set for myself were Team must be in either the MLB, NBA, NFL, MLS, or CFL. The jersey must be in the style of the NHL team's jersey. The other team's colours will be the ones on the jersey. The fonts should be either the official team's font or a close matching font. Teams: Anaheim Ducks (Angels) Arizona Coyotes (Cardinals) Boston Bruins (Celtics) Buffalo Sabres (Bills) Calgary Flames (Stampeders) Carolina Hurricanes (Charlotte Hornets) Chicago Blackhawks (Cubs) Colorado Avalanche (Nuggets) Columbus Blue Jackets (Crew) Dallas Stars (Cowboys) Detroit Red Wings (Tigers) Edmonton Oilers (Eskimos) Florida Panthers (Heat) Los Angeles Kings (Dodgers) Minnesota Wild (Twins) Montreal Canadiens (Expos) Nashville Predators (Titans) New Jersey Devils (Jets) New York Islanders (Nets) New York Rangers (Knicks) Ottawa Senators (Redblacks) Philadelphia Flyers (Eagles) Pittsburgh Penguins (Pirates) San Jose Sharks (49ers) St Louis Blues (Cardinals) Tampa Bay Lightning (Buccaneers) Toronto Maple Leafs (Raptors) Vancouver Canucks (Whitecaps) Vegas Golden Knights (Raiders) Washington Capitals (Wizards) Winnipeg Jets (Blue Bombers) without further adieu, here's the first mashup, the Anaheim Angels in the style of the Anaheim Ducks. (Yes, I am aware they aren't the Anaheim Angels, but heck with that) C&C is appreciated! I am also considering doing throwback jerseys for each mashup, I'd like to hear your thoughts on the idea.
  2. I've seen this idea get bounced around for a thread and in the wake of the demise of the AAF, I feel now is a good time to discuss how an alternative league can potentially survive (and with a few strokes of luck, even thrive). While I'm focusing on alternatives to the Big 4 sports leagues in North America (NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL) as that is what I know, discussing alternatives to leagues outside of North America is obviously welcome. As for a potential alternative (American) football league, here are a few starters that would help IMO: 1. Have a secure source of funding and be willing to lose tens of millions of dollars to start. 2. Don't try to beat the established leagues right off the bat. After all, you have to prove that you can stick around as the longest lasting league since the NFL-AFL merger was the United Football League. 3. Maintain a smaller staff compared to an NFL team. This is obvious. Keep expenses down as much as possible. 4. Get a TV/streaming contract. Streaming is the next evolution of TV but get a TV contract because not everyone can access Internet fast enough to stream. Clearly this is nowhere near a complete list of steps necessary to establish a foothold in the sports market but it's a start.
  3. Thought i'd do a fun little concept, integrating every team into the teams city name, making a kind of cool design using the teams' names. Not as much of a team concept, but more of a miscellaneous concept series. Let me know what you think and what city you'd like to see! First up, my original home, New York City, featuring every team in the NY metro area. I will start with the five sport cities/metro areas, then four, then three (if i get that far).
  4. With the NBA switching to Nike upon the expiration of Adidas' contract with the League at the end of this season, this thread will be where I'll share all of my designs. Ideally I want to create home and away uniforms for all 30 teams, but that may be a bit ambitious so we'll see what happens. I'll start with one uniform for each of the 16 playoff teams and then hopefully progress from there. This will be an exercise focusing primarily on colors, fonts, and minimalist design elements to create a clean and unique look for each team that reinforces or in some cases redesigns their brand. As always, any and all comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated! Indiana Pacers Away Uniform This takes the clean aesthetic of their current look and recalls the more yellow-centric color balance of their uniforms from the early '90s, adding a sublimated checkerboard racing stripe pattern along the side panels. Chicago Bulls Away Uniform While black is typically used as an alternate uniform color for the Bulls, the Jordan-era pinstripes were too classic to pass up. This look doesn't reinvent those classic jerseys so much as it simply reapplies it to the updated Nike Aeroswift jersey template.
  5. 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.
  6. Hello all, I had done a brand refresh for the Knicks a while back, prior to the release of the Nike uniforms, but seeing as the Knicks are now in position come next year to be competitive once again (not gonna jinx anything), I decided to give the Knicks an extensive refresh to the team's brand. Colors: The new blue and orange are more reminiscent of the the shade in the teams past, becoming deeper and more pronounced. Silver is removed entirely in the color scheme. Primary Logo: A blend of both the Knicks' 70s logo and the logo from the Present (New York removed). The font is an updated version of the one they currently use. Secondary Logo: Simply a recolor of their current secondary with the silver outlining removed. Uniforms: The chest text on the jersey reverts to the old style the team had used since the 60s and are well known for. The silver outlining is removed entirely leaving only the white/blue and orange on the sleeves. The shorts receive a new side and waist pattern reminiscent of the 70s and 90s uniforms but reworked in color so it matches up with the pattern on the bottom of the shorts. The new primary is also added to the short where the old one was. I welcome any CC and general comments and I hope y'all like it!
  7. We should be getting a few press conferences today with drafted rookies. Here's a few news bits on new numbers ...
  8. Well, it's been a long time since I've posted a logo concept on here. Now, I have a semester-long project in my project management class and I chose to put an NBA expansion team in Pittsburgh. The name I chose is the Pittsburgh Peregrines; named after the fastest flying animal on the planet. I am not the best at drawing, so I traced over the picture of the peregrine you will see below. I know right now it looks more like an illustration than a logo, and that's what I need your help with. What can I do to make it look more like Boston College's Eagle or UTSA's Roadrunner? Any help would be appreciated. I will also be posting other alternate logos and uniforms eventually. C&C much appreciated!
  9. I’m going to be sharing some NBA concepts I’ve been working on and tweaking for a while now. I started these almost two years ago when the first Nike designed uniforms came trickling out. I was a bit underwhelmed by many of them and started to work up my own. The time has come to share!I haven’t posted concepts on these boards in probably 5 years (and those were under an old username), so this should be fun! I'm here for the feedback, comments, and criticism so don't hold back! I want to make these better, so please help!I’ll start with basic icon/association/statement sets for each team and then loop back around at the end to get a bit more wild with the city, and maybe earned, sets if inspiration strikes. Before I get into it, major thanks to @Hoopladawg87 for sharing this template with me, and to all the other designers on these boards who keep putting out inspiring stuff - I find browsing here to be super motivational.

  10. Hi! Not new here but it has been long since I finished my last concept... And now back with a NFL to NBA concept. First I want to thank @R3G for his amazing nike NBA template! Very user-friendly. The 1990s NBA jerseys seem to be controversial because of it's colors and details, and I would like to see how the NFL teams can fit into it. Since the Eagles unveiled their current set in 1990s so I decided to start with it. Inspired by the 1992-95 Hawks set and 1997-2011 Wizards set, which both have single-sided stripe and similar curved jersey logos. May back with the white/alt or I will start another new team. C&C is always appreciated!! Thanks for reading!! Edit: Lists: NFC East: #1 Eagles / #4 Giants / #21 Cowboys NFC West: #11 Seahawks / #17 Rams NFC South: #14 Falcons / #20 Panthers NFC North: #8 Vikings(v2) / #12 Lions / #19 Bears AFC East: #7 Patriots / #10 Dolphins / #13 Jets AFC West(finished): #5 Raiders / #16 Chargers / #24 Broncos / #25 Chiefs AFC South(finished): #3 Colts(v2) / #6 Jaguars / #22 Texans / #23 Titans AFC North(finished): #2 Ravens / #9 Steelers / #15 Browns #18 Bengals
  11. The Miami Heat brand is stale. Their logo style has been around since the eighties and their uni style has been around since the nineties. That's acceptable if you're a team like the Chicago Bulls, who have had the same beloved, iconic logo since their inception in the 1960's. Miami's Flaming-ball-through-basket logo has become almost iconic in it's own right, but most logos that have hung around as long as the Heat's become well-respected, regardless of imperfections. The Heat fans seem desperate for a change and have embraced the team's alternate Vice identity as strongly as America embraced Crockett and Tubbs in 1984. That's great and all, but a 30+ year old fanbase deserves a fresh, relevant basketball identity so that's what I sought to accomplish with this rebrand. Odes to Miami Days, Dusks, and Nights are included throughout as the main logo becomes sleeker, more abstract, and with more purpose. The colors are more current, bright pink and orange in, yellow out. There's also, I hope, a feeling of versatility in the different brand assets from the uniquely Miami neon set piece to a more hipster element seen in the repeating word mark and color ID. Cause the NBA. The static backgrounds are a small vaporware touch and the Billboard hangs on to a little bit of the Miami Vice alt. identity, which in this universe sticks around as a City 4th jersey. Thanks for Watching!
  12. Hey everyone! If you guys remember a while back I started on this NBA jersey database project that eventually spawned into a Tumblr. I need everyone's help again. I decided to ditch the old template with a newer, easier to edit, one. But I'm going to need a lot of help on how the jersey shape/length/belt/shorts evolved throughout the years. I did my own research and this is what I've come up with so far: (Note that the years indicated refer to the jerseys templates only and not the jerseys themselves) Ok. So for this first batch: I'm not sure when they stopped using belts for their shorts. I noticed on team photos that by 1956 the jerseys were a bit wider on the shoulders. It went even wider at 1968 with a new V-neck collar jersey at 1974. 1986 was when they added the NBA logo. For 1994 I widened the arm holes a bit more and made the shorts slightly longer. To anyone who knows more about this stuff, I'd be really grateful for some notes and criticism. Thanks everyone!
  13. Hello! Im just posting this concept for the NBA. I honestly think the NBA should expand to 32 teams. Feel free to comment!
  14. This is something I have been toying with for a while. I wanted to do a non ABA Colonels, non horse themed KY team. I went with Troopers. There are two separate Army bases in Kentucky, which led me to a military-esque logo. The team would play in Louisville but would be branded the Kentucky Troopers. Navy and Gold instead of the ABA royal and red. I wanted to use gold more due to Fort Knox, but couldn't make it work in a way that wasn't corny.
  15. In honor of Opening Night, I decided to experiment and create a different style of Nike NBA jersey called the Legacy uniform. These involve a combination of different eras of the respective team combined into a single uniform. This means there are varying styles, colors, and logos. Below each uniform are the aspect of the uniform and the era it's correlated to. I'm starting this series off with some Atlantic Division teams: Boston Celtics: 1950s-60s: Chest text 1970s-90s: Number, pant logo 2000s-Present: Pant stripe, sleeve pattern Brooklyn Nets: 1960s-80s (As the New York/New Jersey Nets): Side pattern, pant logo Early-mid 1990s (As New Jersey Nets): Chest text 2000s: Uniform Color Present: Number font New York Knicks: Late 1960s-70s: Chest text, pant logo Mid 1980s-mid 1990s: Primary and Secondary colors, number font Late 1990s-Early 2010s: Uniform side design, sleeve pattern Present: Tertiary color The rest of the division and more will be coming soon, but let me know what you think!
  16. Hey all, I decided to try and create retired number banners for current NBA players and their respective teams. These banners are based off the actual style of retired number banners the team uses (with exception to LAC and OKC since they havent retired any numbers yet). Justifications as to why I did or did not include certain players (HM=Honorable Mentions) are included below as well. I hope you think these are good and they are free to use and respond with any suggestions! I will be doing this series for the NHL as well after! ATLANTA: Joe Johnson (played majority of his all-star career with the organization and led them to many playoff births) HM: Josh Smith, Al Horford (neither put up good enough numbers) BOSTON: None No HM BROOKLYN: Vince Carter (All-star and leader for all of his nearly 6 years with the team), Brook Lopez (considering the Nets history of honoring long-tenured players and Lopez's solid numbers, it's very likely he'll see his number in the rafters) HM: Richard Jefferson, Deron Williams (neither were as effective as the other two players mentioned) CHARLOTTE: Kemba Walker (will be a multi-time all-star, a first for the "Hornets" in years) No HM CLEVELAND: LeBron James (OBVIOUS REASONS) HM: Mo Williams (not effective enough), Kevin Love (too early to call/not on team long enough), Kyrie Irving (went out on sour note) CHICAGO: Derrick Rose (a homegrown kid, multi-time all-star, and only the second Bulls player to win MVP outside of MJ) HM: Joakim Noah (DPOY but didn't do much outside of that and a few all-star appearances) DALLAS: Dirk Nowitzki (OBVIOUS REASONS) No HM DENVER: Carmelo Anthony (Denver scoring leader and put the team back on the map after years of futility) No HM DETROIT: None No HM GOLDEN STATE: Stephen Curry (OBVIOUS REASONS), Klay Thompson (leader and all-star for the current team, likely career Warrior), Draymond Green (top-tier defensive talent and leader for Warriors) HM: Kevin Durant (not on team long enough yet), Monta Ellis (not effective enough/bad teams) HOUSTON: James Harden (likely career Rocket, potential future MVP, and consistent all-star and team leader) No HM INDIANA: None HM: Paul George (left on sour note and didn't play with team long enough) LA CLIPPERS: Chris Paul (team leader and consistent all-star, delivering Clips to playoffs), Blake Griffin (career Clip, multi-time all-star, fashioned lob city era) HM: DeAndre Jordan (not effective enough) LA LAKERS: None HM: Pau Gasol (didn't play with team long enough and wasn't effective enough) MEMPHIS: Marc Gasol (all-star and Memphis' soft process on retired numbers) HM: Mike Conley (too early to call/not effective enough), Pau Gasol (didn't play on team long enough) MIAMI: Chris Bosh (sad story/way he went out, multi-time all-star), Dwyane Wade (OBVIOUS REASONS), LeBron James (brought in championships and was MVP with Heat) HM: Udonis Haslem (devoted, but not effective enough to pass Heat's lenient standards) MILWAUKEE: None HM: Giannis Antetokounmpo (too early to call) MINNESOTA: Kevin Love (multi-time all-star and double double leader) No HM NEW ORLEANS: Anthony Davis (Multi-time all-star and leader for Pels) HM: Demarcus Cousins (not on team long enough yet) NEW YORK: Carmelo Anthony (leader and all-star all 7 years on the team) No HM OKLAHOMA CITY: Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant (BOTH OBVIOUS REASONS) HM: James Harden (not on team long enough), Nick Collison (not effective enough, despite longest tenure) ORLANDO: None HM: Dwight Howard (disrespected team and city, very up in the air/not a guarantee) PHILADELPHIA: None No HM PHOENIX: N/A (do not have retired number banners) PORTLAND: Damien Lillard (multi-time all-star, leader, and likely career Blazer) HM: LaMarcus Aldridge (not on team long enough and not effective enough in time there) SAN ANTONIO: Manu Ginobili (career Spur and team leader), Tony Parker (see "Manu"), Kawhi Leonard (multi-time DPOY and all-star, new team leader) No HM SACRAMENTO: None HM: Demarcus Cousins (wasn't effective/respected enough in tenure, plus Kings' reluctance to retire numbers easily) TORONTO: Vince Carter (multi-time all-star and put Raptors on the map), Demar DeRozan (Canadian player, multi-time all-star, and career Raptor) HM: Kyle Lowry (too up-in-the-air) UTAH: None HM: Deron Williams (disrespected organization and not effective enough) WASHINGTON: John Wall (career Wizard, multi-time all-star and team leader) HM: Bradley Beal (too early to cal, no all-star appearances)
  17. Hey all! Decided to do a fun jersey series during this NBA offseason. These fun alternate jerseys I will be making will all reflect the team name and team name only, as you will see, quite literally. I will be moving down in order of division in each conference and in order of city name in each division. I will kick this series off with these three teams: Boston Celtics: The same look as the Celtics' mascot Brooklyn Nets: Quite literally the weaving of a basketball net. New York Knicks: Since many of you may not know what a Knick is, its short for Knickerbocker, which is an older term for a New Yorker. Thus, the retro vest and tie top and brown pants. More will be coming soon if y'all like this series idea! Template credit to therealpepman
  18. Turning this into all of my NBA Concepts thread. Utah Jazz City Concept (this post) (V2) (Court) Dallas Mavericks Full Rebrand (V2) (City) So, to preface, I obviously based these off of the uniforms and logos this year, making them a ice-ey, snow-ey, mountain-ey version for next year. I think in general I did a good job, but I'd love to catch some feedback. If you want the template I made, I posted it here a while ago, and will be adding an updated version with the shorts soon. Anyway, let's jump in. I hate writing details to go with the uniforms/logos, so you can use your imagination on what I did for different things. One thing to note is that I used the Oquirrh mountain range for the right side striping (left looking at it in an image), and the Wasatch mountain range for the left side. I also took inspiration from the old Jazz all star logo to make the new snowflake logo. OK here it is. Snowflake logo Mountain-Note logo Version 1 Version 2 Version 3
  19. I used a template for the base of the court from here: http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/86113-basketball-court-psd/ i would have made the border lines yellow but how the template was made didn’t allow me to do so. So basically all I did was take the old Sonics logo and repainted it and removed the red and kept it two colors (excluding the white line) I also put the two S logos one on each side two symbolize the word super and sonic. And clearly I also added the space needle in the middle which I wanted to make it wood stain but it just didn’t work out with how much colored paint was used on the court so I made it a solid green. I tried making it both modern and old school with the old logo and the latest circle logos combined and also making the middle design abnormally big and removing any gradient for solid colors. (I would feel bad for anyone sitting on the opposite side of the court tho) tldr: combined the “present” and past. Past: old logo, enlarged design, excessive paint Modern: “present” Sonics logo, solid colors, keeping it two main colors
  20. a concept design I made. I know not a lot of people will like this because it’s so extra but I decided to put a lot of “extraness” to match the spirits of New Orleans during Mardi Gras. The skyline is the one if New Orleans and I put it on both the top and bottom for some symmetry. I also put the team name on the bottom instead because of the New Orleans vine design on the corners. I then bring back the old Nola logo and recolored it to a Mardi Gras color. Note: I am not a professional artist so please excuse some weird jagged up areas or ocd triggering details
  21. Yes, for 13 teams(to be 14 after tonight), the dream of the Lawrence F. O'Brien Trophy being in their hands is just that, a dream. Please to be discussing your next-season prospects here.
  22. THIS IS VOL 1 VOL 2 VOL 3 VOL 4 VOL 5 League: NBA League Branding: Nike Team: New York Knicks Jersey Advertisement: Squarespace The Vision: Yesterday my return post was meant with great criticism. Majority of people hated my concept because it was to out there for them. I listened to the critics harsh words, and went back to the drawing board. For today's concept I wanted to once again create a nontraditional design, so what better league than the NBA. I once again choose an iconic New York team, this time it was the Knicks. Today I bring you a much better presentation as well. Thank you. Lifestyle Quote: "A snake will hiss, and a dog will bark. Animals are creatures of habit." -Kong Tom Team Quote: "To design for the Knicks, one must take the pride of the city to heart, and embrace it as their own." -Kong Tom I hope you enjoy, and please leave honest feedback. Thank you.
  23. I made an update concept of an old favorite logo. I thought it was too much things going on in the old version. so i cleaned it up. i took the font on the crown and used it as a main font for the logo
  24. Hey all- I have noticed a heavy lack of G-League concepts on the boards, and this is my attempt to produce a solid series of G-League concepts. As you all know, the NBA switched to Nike this year, and the G-League joined them as well. Similar to how Adidas did the D-League, Nike as created a jersey template and simply changes the word mark and colors of the jersey for each team. While yes, it is a developmental basketball league, I believe that the teams deserve to have their own identities and own set of uniforms. That being said, I have the first team of the series completed. I will be going in no particular order, so let's get this underway shall we? Fort Wayne Mad Ants The one requirement I have for the G-League teams is that they follow the colors of their parent team, and the Mad Ants are the first example of this. They are the Pacers affiliate, and they recently switched their colors to blue and yellow. So here is the logo set and uniforms for the Mad Ants. The logos are fairly self-explanatory, although the alternate logo needs a little clarification. Fort Wayne is called "Summit City", so the mountain in the W is symbolic of that name. The one thing I wanted to do about the G-League uniforms is move the advertiser from the front bottom to the back. I feel like it cleans up the jersey and makes it look better as well. So here's the first team, I'll have a second one tonight possibly but if not, it will be tomorrow morning. C&C appreciated as always.
