NABL - fictional hoops league

Recommended Posts

Ok, so it's been forever since I've really posted anything here, but I've been doing this league lately and figured I'd share. It's an multiplayer fictional league that Ive done all the logos (except one) and uniforms for. Was never a big hoops concept guy here, but I thought they came out fairly well and wouldnt mind feedback. Oh yeah, and if any of you guys might be interested in taking over a team we might have an opening or two. We use FBPB3. http://nabl.simuleague.com/

Anyway lets get started, I'll use the next posts for the teams...

Season Two: Only change was Tucson, which moved to Mesa and became the "Inferno". I liked the original, but I did what I could at the time. Definitely a candidate for a facelift sooner than later.

Season Three: A handful of owners wanted some updates, so I came up with some ideas with a general idea of what they might want. The only overhaul went to Buffalo, who had a new owner.

And that's where we stand at the moment, about to begin Free agency before season 3...

Wow I had a similar idea a while back, but you have absolutely crushed all of these.

Oh damn, these look really sweet. Really the only thing I can think of to nitpick about is that a lot of them feel more... college-y than they should. But hey, it's a sim league, so it doesn't really matter.

The striping and paneling on these are really creative. You have some nice outside-the-box ideas while still maintaining a traditional feel. The only issue I noticed is that the numbers on the back and player names are too high up.

These are fantastic! My only concern is with the Tampa jerseys, it's a bit hard to differentiate the home and road jerseys.

 

Can't wait to see more!

Great looking uniforms! We have a distinct lack of basketball concepts around here so it's nice to see some. Are you going to also develop logos for each team? I see some have stylized wordmarks. Nice work.

Some of these look awfully familiar!  

Excellent work all around.  Only suggestion I have is to change the providence away.  Black writing on a blue jersey is tough to read; I would go with yellow instead. 

 

Will we get a better look at those purdy logos you have there?

 

edit:  now that I look at it closer, the Calgary scripts don't have enough space between the A and the L.  It almost reads like Cdgary and Stdlions.  Clean that up a touch and you'll be golden!

Lovely, but I preferred the old tropics wordmarks and on the St. Louis pilots and some of the other teams one of the jerseys needs to have the place name.

still though, amazing!

These are great! Really like how the fonts match the identity of the teams.

these are the logos, only have them handy in 150x150 right now for in game use. And yes some are familiar. The Pilots logo was recreated based on the old Spirits of St Louis. The Storm logo/wordmark was lifted off an existing logo, I didnt have time to go through and make a 100% original one at the time, so I just modified one l thought would work for now. The pilgrims logo is a frankenstein. I took elements from like 3 different logos, and modified them to fit together. The Ottawa "O" logo isnt mine i just cleaned it up and modified it a bit. It was already chosen for the team so not sure if it was a real teams logo or not. Tuscon is the old Pontiac Firebird basically. And the Gator head logo was taken off an existing logo and modified a bit to stand on its own. The rest I pretty much did from scratch.

Half of these logos are from a hockey thread I really enjoyed when I first joined this site. If I'm not mistaken, I believe Anaheim, Las Vegas, Montreal, Virginia, Witchita, and Vancouver were all from it. Was that your Series? If so I loved it.

It was! Kevin did the design half of that series while I did a lot of the brainstorming.
