NBA Rebrand(Sonics Included)

Recommended Posts

Here's my crack a Sonics redesign, one of dozens among this site. The new Climate Pledge Arena made me think about this. The way this template is set up only allowed me to do a green jersey, but I'm working on a white one.

These look great! The sidepanels is very reminiscent of the Boston Celtics 18/19 City Edition(especially the association), however the back part of the shorts is really very clever! 
On Statement Edition I would perhaps go full green for the sidepanels and back shorts, the white is too bright, at least to me. 

I understand the want and wish for the return of green and yellow - its a unique colour scheme. The current NBA suffers from extreme saturation. 
Sonics concepts are always great to see - keep it up!

Sorry for being gone so long! I dabbled with your idea of all green-and I have to say, it is a better look

For the City edition, I wanted something that

  1. Reflected the rainy nature of Seattle
  2. Used blue, green, and gray just like the Seahawks, Mariners, and [insert NHL team]
  3. Did not deviate to far from the other 3 sets

My final product was this: using a gray base, I added diagonal [Mavs blue] pinstripes portray rain.

On the court I used the diagonal rain-stripes, and used a little wordplay on the baseline.

@LA Fakers+ LA Snippers looks better to me! And the city edition is very interesting! Great work! Are you going to make some more for different teams?

Thank you! And yes, I will do more for other teams, starting with the Rockets, Celtics, Nets and Bucks.

Sorry for such a wait! I'm back, and I've returned with a new Nets concept.

I thought that black and white alone was too bland, and the Spurs already use gray, so I needed something new.

I immediately thought 'Blue', but not their old navy, because the NBA has too many navy teams already. Then I saw the Barclays Center logo, and I knew I needed a lighter blue.

For the City Edition, I wanted to stick with the monotone, but incorporate the asymmetrical (Dr. J) stripes on the side.

I decided to use navy because it was already on the 2000's (Jason Kidd) wordmark I used, and I meshed perfectly.spacer.png

Before I make a whole identity, I would like some feedback on the logo. Yay? Nay? OK?

I like this direction for a new Magic logo, though it would be nice to see something a little more unique, I think.

 

I'm not a fan of any iteration of real world Magic logos, but I also haven't followed basketball for very long, so I have no sense of the nostalgia associated with those logos.

What you consider a Sonics set made with OKC colors? More like a middle finger to them, in the sense we can make your colors look better then you can.
