Brooklyn Nets Heritage.

Recommended Posts

Alright, so when the nets announced a few years ago that they were moving to Brooklyn, I was expecting a lot more for their identity. This was the first time professional sports would take over in Brooklyn since the Dodgers left.

I figured, since Brooklyn is proud of their history, their identity would have resembled their only other professional team from the past, the Dodgers. I like the shield, and I like their identity already, but I figured I could combine it with the history of Brooklyn sports and create an identity that might be a little more fun to look at on the court, and a little more linked to Brooklyn.

This is a beautiful, well designed conept. Perhaps the Nets should adopt that home uniform as an alternate.

Huge improvement over the bland as paint junk they went with, nice work!

My only problem with this concept is that the "Nets" script is so thin compared to the "Brooklyn" script. I suggest you thicken up the home wordmark a bit.

Otherwise, this is a pretty good concept and I second seeing this in current Nets colors!

I like the color scheme as well as the script, but I agree with TheGiantsFan that it needs to be thickened up. Also, I try to make a new "B." I understand that what you used is the old Brooklyn Dodgers logo, but in this day and age it brings to mind the iconic Boston Red Sox "B." Great start!

The only problem is that the LA Dodgers still own all the Brooklyn Dodgers IP, including that B logo and the BROOKLYN script, and have refused to sell it to the Nets.

I am super happy about all the love I am getting on this concept. I threw together a few new things.

First, here's what the nets script looks like thickened:

Here is how it would look if I added black into the color scheme:

And here is the whole identity with just the current black and white color scheme:

Yes to either the blue/black or the white/black sets. Your first try looks more like the Brooklyn Dogders-as-basketball, especially the grey unis. As one of the few people on the boards who likes the current Nets branding, I'd say your updates are a step up. Kudos.
