Yeah these WNBA and G League jerseys need upgrading since they are so cluttered with ads. The NBA uniform format is better. Excited to see where this goes!

Quite the project to undertake, but I like the general idea.

 

For the Storm, i'd add at least a logo to the shorts, and maybe a belt buckle logo and even the number on the shorts, like the Sonics had back then. I'd also add an outline to the # on the Association and Icon uniforms.

The Supersonics would be glad that they haven't been forgotten.... unlike OKLAHOMA.

On the Storm, I would rather see the word mark colors be reversed on the road jersey. As it currently stands, it’s tough to distinguish from afar. Also try the word mark in yellow with green outlines, just to see which is better.

Have a soft spot in my heart for this league so I always love seeing concepts. Will definitely be following this. Here are my comments:

 

Storm icon - the outline might be a little thin, might as well be pure white. Even on the second version. 

Sparks - Kind of basic design (esp. on white), maybe add some trim like the Spark pattern from the 2008 era jersey. Feel like more could be done with number font than just stealing the Lakers.

Sun - I like the idea of using the gradient but maybe move it to be trim from the front angle, like blue-gradient-blue pattern.

Fever - I see what you did with the Pacers inspiration but I'm not sure I'm a fan of them using pinstripes. Looks more like a Pacers design + red than a Fever design.

Lynx - no comments, pretty well done.

 

Also for the record, the league has a newer logo. r526103_1296x729_16-9.png&w=570&h=321&fo

I would say these are objectively decent uniform designs. My issue might be with the template, but these all seem outdated. You aren't seeing many modern jerseys with two matching side stripes any more, whether they're good or bad designs. I would challenge you to step out from your comfort zone and take some more risks, because you've clearly shown you can make good looking side stripes.
