NBA Expansion Project: Tampa Bay Sharks

Recommended Posts

This looks great! I really like everything about this team, but I wanted to point out that Philips Arena makes no sense as it is in Atlanta. Also the basketball seems a bit out of place on the main logo.

Why is there no teal on the away jersey?

 

Also, the shark fin looks off with the wave and the sun. It looks like it's all been squished together.

 

I'll admit the colours look good though.

I agree and know that, The only arena in Tamp, FL is the other Philips Arena. I'm pretty sure the NBA would just build an Arena, but I don't know what it would be called that's why I just used the Philips Arena logo used by the Tampa Bay Bolts Hockey team

The arena used by the Tampa Bay Lightning is Amalie Arena, which is not Philips. The Hawks are the main tenant in the one and only Philips Arena, which is in Atlanta, not the Tampa Bay Area.

1. Teal was a no go cause it looked like I was trying to fit too many pieces on to the jersey making it look horrible. Maybe in the future though

 

2. The wave with the shark fin will be fixed, Thanks for pointing that out.

You're right, I think I accidentally pulled this arena logo out of the wrong folder. Sorry guys. But like I said before I'm pretty sure the NBA would just decide to build a new arena

Hopefully this is what you meant by fixing the wave and fin

I'm not seeing a sun (if that's what it's supposed to be). It looks like a cannon ball exploding to me.

It was originally a cannon ball, thanks for noticing. But I added the rays to add more pop, and it eventually looked more like a sun. But it's actually a sun if you wanted to know.

I didn't read the other comments so this may have already been covered but I'm gonna ask anyway, Is the ball supposed to be a basketball or is it meant to be a cannon ball?

is that a sun or a cannon ball exploding? whatever it is, it's not necessary and would look better without it.

I like the overall concept. Fits Florida well. Couple thoughts:

 

- The sun/cannonball thing is a little distracting IMO. Takes away from the fin, which I think could stand on its own. Or, you may want to try flipping the colors, ie make the ball red and the starry part the blue and teal.

 

- The kerning on the second "S" on the wordmark is too far out, every time I looked at the logo it really bugged me.

 

- Bit surprised you didn't have a teal away uni, perhaps a teal alternate would complete the set.

 

Nice start!
