NBA Monicker Carousel: NOLA & MIA added 2/6, PHX 2/7

Recommended Posts

And which city deserves a monicker like "Heat"? It could only be Phoenix. With a singular name like heat I wanted to lean into that late 80s/early 90s aesthetic and added some saguaro green to compliment the purple. I thought about just using the phoenix logo, but that felt a bit too lazy.

Dang, these are all top-notch stuff. I think Toronto is my favorite so far, but everything else is just as good.

As much as I loathe PJ Fleck, I could think of no better motto than "Row."

How about ‘Sink or Swim?’

Also would uniforms be in order in the future?

How about “Over 10,000 Strong” relating to both the lakes and the fans...?

And with the Jazz in New Orleans the Pelicans will fly East to Miami, a perfect chance for Miami to embrace the Vice look full time. 

 

 

My god that is just beautiful! The logo is the bomb. Love everything about this.

To wrap up this portion of the carousel I'll be taking the Suns to LA (formerly the Lakers). I'm struggling to come up with a look for this. I'd love to see what y'all would put on the LA Suns branding moodboard. I'll get it started.

Mark, each and every one of these rocks hard. Seriously great stuff, and such a novel, unexplored concept. FOLLOWED.

 

I'd throw these on the pile:

Dude, yes!  These are great.  My favorite overall is Toronto so far, but man, I love what you did with the Raptors. I hope you do uniforms with this as well, but if not, I'll take logos and courts.

 

As far as the LA Suns?  

 

Yeah, I don't think you can avoid palm trees on this one.  Even the Sparks couldn't.  :)

I'm thinking throwing a gold to purple gradient map on that could give you a nice colour scheme.

Love everything about this series so far!

You could also adapt a Nuggets-like or Astros-inspired tequila sunrise?

 

For font styles, maybe something along the lines of the Hollywood sign?

 

This carousel idea is genius

This idea is brilliant.

Do you mind if I do the uniforms or are you planning on doing them?

I might be doing uniforms. I'd rather you not.

If you've followed most of my threads you know this is the point where I struggle to come up with something I'm happy with and drop the project for a while (or forever) until I find inspiration elsewhere. I've already started toying with another project, but I still have this one on my mind.

Man, all of these designs simply rock, but to me, Arizona Heat flows better than Phoenix.
