NBA Finals WIP

Recommended Posts

I'm not exactly sure where to post this. I took on this project a while back and was hoping for some criticism from you guys. The only ones left to do are the 50s and 60s.

Cool idea. They're organized very oddly, imo. Why stacks of five? At the very least, I'd like to see the year under each match-up and maybe arranged in some other fashion. Good start to a nicely unique idea...

Is there any way the color/order of jerseys is determined? I at first thought winner on left, loser on right, but that appears to not be the case. I think it would make sense to have each individual year under each pair like Conrad said, and have winner on left and loser on right, or have it shown somehow. Really like this!

^Read my mind. I think winner on one side, loser on the other would be a good idea.

I like how you put the team with HCA in white/light and the other team in the road uniforms, but I think the winner/loser thing would be a nice extra touch.

Good start so far. I saw one like this a few years back that had Slam Dunk contest participant jerseys with the winner having a gold small trophy underneath. (Gotta find it) but This is sweet.

I agree that the arrangement is a bit off. I had no idea how to do it. Any suggestions?

I used home court advantage as a reference. I suppose I should make the winners home. I just figured it'd be a waste just seeing the Bulls' home jersey all the time.

I'll check it out. It might inspire me for the arrangement.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! Keep 'em coming if you have any more.

This would make for a excellent poster. I can't wait to see the rest of the NBA Finals (I imagine the ones from the early 50's are going to be a little hard to find, though). Why no scripts on the jerseys though?

Finding it WAS too difficult... I'm still not sure about a few of the jerseys.

My initial idea was to focus on the numbers. It looked a bit too plain so I added the designs. It's a graphical approach to it I suppose.

i think too, that if you ever make this into an actual poster, you can sell it freely if you don't include the wordmarks (which are copyrighted marks).

i think you should keep the home court advantage aspect of the set-up, but maybe denote somehow which team won with a gold outline on the rectangle or something.

also, in terms of arrangement, i think you should just have it read left-to-right like a paragraph, with maybe 5 match-ups per "line" (adding the year under each match-up, of course).

Found it!!! You can use this as somewhat of a format or inspiration too! (If not no biggie)

^ agreed. use that as a loose template and expand from there.

I did exactly that before I saw your posts! Weird...

UPDATE:

I'm still working on the background which I think is too plain and I'm not sure about some 50s jerseys (Google Images can only take you so far).
