Hey everybody, I'd love to get some feedback on this one. This would be considered a "City Edition" NBA concept so that allows for some play outside of the traditional colors for the Knicks. I've always loved the Knicks secondary logo for a ton of reasons so I decided it base a jersey on it. Inspiration: The “Empire City” concept jersey makes use of the “Subway Token Logo” secondary which debuted in 1996 and was designed by one of my favorite designers, Michael Doret. The letters “NYK” represent the city and the team’s nickname New York Knicks. Michael's design drew its inspiration from the old MTA subway tokens and elements of it crept into early concepts of the Knicks’ primary logo. The Knicks have been using as a secondary logo since 1995. It's graced equipment and merchandise since then, and was featured on the back of the uniform until recently. Michael's design drew its inspiration from the old MTA subway tokens and elements of it crept into early concepts of the Knicks’ primary logo. There is awesome post with hand drawn concepts of some of Michael's potential knick logos here if you are interested. Jersey Design features: -The lines across the chest extend to the sleeve holes to mimic the angles one would experience standing on a street corner in New York. -The belt buckle graphic proudly features the NYC initials. -A nod to New York’s famous nickname is printed above the jersey's jock tag. -The shorts feature a cascading design inspired by the ceiling at Madison Square Garden, the iconic building in which the Knicks have played basketball with the initials MSG at the center. Here is a link to the reference images I used for my design: This is version one, if you have any other color requests please post em. I've got a few more I'm working on if you guys are interested in seeing some more. I REALLY appreciate your thoughts, reactions and input. Please don't hold back. Thank you so much!!! Adding a Raptors concept: Been super busy as of late with other projects but I finally got another concept fired off. I love the OG Cartoon Raps jersey but the casual fan might not rock the Dinosaur like a die hard as awesome as it is. I came up with a mid-level OG throwbackish design that would appeal to both new/casual and older Raptors fans that featuring the Toronto skyline (I know, I know it's kinda my thing) over a maple leaf. Let me know what you think! Also in Black:
