  1. I'm not a big basketball guy (in fact, this is my first basketball concept ever), but I'm an Atlantan and very displeased with the Hawks uniforms. The shift to navy blue and red 10-15 years ago felt foreign (I know they had worn those colors before, but it was so long ago) but was at least relatively harmless. I was excited to see an emphasis put back on the Pac Man logo as they slowly reintroduced him. However, the way the redesign was executed left me with a bad taste in my mouth. The red was very prominent. That much was good. Navy blue was out; also good. In its place was a dark gray...not the familiar black, but better, nonetheless. Where it really fell apart was the hideous volt. What a terrible color that looks so out of place! I also realize the Hawks have used lime green before, but they hadn't used it paired with these new colors. The red, gray, and volt felt like a cheap knockoff version of the Hawks I grew up with. The Hawks have such great inspiration to pull from, and the current iteration with the feather pattern misses the mark. Overly detailed, poor color balance (can I say gaudy?), too trendy and already outdated. Definitely not "timeless." I wanted to come up with a design that feels familiar for the Hawks but pushes the needle a bit. The Dominique Wilkins era uniforms were near perfect for the time but don't quite translate to today's NBA. The Hawks need to emphasize red, white, and yellow. The current red and black sets are screaming for some white to balance it out because the volt makes it look dirty and dingy. Black should definitely be used sparingly and in this case, I relegated it only to an alternate uniform. It works because black is familiar for Atlanta, but leaves the main uniforms untouched. Those sets don't need any black at all. I took the forward looking graphic of the script and applied it throughout the uniform: the front and back number, as well as the NOB. I skipped name and number outlines in the interest of letting the design do the talking. It has a "loud" script so I wanted to keep the rest of the set fairly minimalistic. I originally had a contrasting collar and shoulder trim, but I got rid of those for the same reason. I created the new Nike template from scratch and if there's interest I may release it. Still playing around with it and optimizing it for use. It includes all the various seams and mesh panels. _________________________________________ TEMPLATE RELEASE I have tried to make this pretty user friendly. Just pay attention when you're changing the color of the uniform to also swap the inner garment color. There's a shadow layer and if you disable that layer's visibility, then you can click the inner garment color and swap that. I tweaked a couple things from my original design: got rid of the dashed stitching and just made it solid since it's hardly visible, anyways...added a jock tag, inner neck detailing, etc. The file is an Adobe Illustrator file (which I believe should also open and be compatible within Inkscape).
  2. Hey Guys! I've been working on this simple concept I've had the idea for recently. Check it out and let me know what you think! More on and
  3. I decided to take a shot at some of the expected uniform changes in the NBA for the 2015-16 season. First up is the Hawks... I decided to run with the red/volt/charcoal color scheme that's been reported. The uniforms are sort of a mix of eras. I kept the current wordmarks and numbers, sans beveling. The unis feature the diagonal stripe/wordmark on the chest from the 80s, a straight stripe down the player's left side a la the early 90s set, and the updated Pacman logo on the right leg that was feature on both of the above. The left side of the shorts feature a vertically stacked "ATL", with "HAWKS" on the charcoal alternate, reminiscent of several different sets the Hawks wore. I tried out a full charcoal court, which has also been rumored. Not sure how I feel about it, so let me know what you think. And no, I will NOT do a volt uniform.
  4. I know I posted a another Hawks concept recently in march, but I wasn't 100% satisfied with it. To me it lacked creativity, and I was tempted to either go just red and white or to blue and green. I had started another Hawks concept, but eventually abandoned the project. After seeing the Christmas unis I couldn't resist. I didn't use the charcoal or that pattern in the Christmas unis as it seemed to crowded. One side panel is based off the Christmas unis, while the other side is replicating the 70s Hawks. And here's the Christmas unis for comparison: Please give feedback and let me know what you think
  5. While the Hawks brought "back" the "Pac," their uniforms still reek of a generic uniform and rebrand that has been pretty unpopular with fans. I've always been a proponent of the Hawks going all the way back to their 90s color scheme, but with the new logo and a slight rebrand this past year, I wanted to give them uniforms to match. For context: The Hawks not only unveiled the pac logo, but also have pretty much phased out the Hawk head and the full-body Hawk. However, the uniforms remain similar, with logo replacements being the only changes, and the court, to me, doesn't reflect their new identity. If you check out the team's website, social media, etc., there's been a new emphasis on red, with blue becoming much more of an accent. When I think of the old brand, I think of beveled lettering where navy blue and silver stand out, and piping that also brings the blue and silver into the forefront, with red as the accent. While the team has changed its image, the uniforms remain primarily white, navy, silver and red. So here's a change that reflects their new identity, which has focused on clean and simplistic presentation and A LOT OF RED.
  6. EDIT: Wrong thread. Woops. I've been swamped with life lately and have not really been able to commit to a concept series, but I got around to a doodle or two today. I wanted to try my hand at making the sleeved NBA jerseys applicable enough for standard home and away uniforms. I also decided to add sponsor patches to the jerseys. I've worked on a few other teams here as well, but won't commit to a series right now. I will share the updated team name/city/color palette graphic I made. I'll try to make additions in this thread in the future, but for now, here's the Hawks in red, black and gold!
  7. 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:
