thanks for all the kind words everyone...here's a full update, complete with all 3 jerseys and a modified logo set:

for the jerseys, i made the orange more vibrant, made my own new wordmark & numbers, and changed the shorts' sun logo to reflect the one in this concept logo set:

this is quite a bit to take in, so im all ears now as to what your thoughts are about these...

The last version looks great. The only thing I would look at is maybe having the ball and flames on the shorts going up ^ instead of down...

Really nice design.

The unis lacks the Pantone 137 C. But still impressive design. Nice scripts and numerals. And it's nice that you disregard the gray. Good job.

No they don't -- it surrounds the basketball on the shorts.

I like the new wordmark, especially the N.

My only further cc is that the "flames" look odd in purple. I'd stick to the orange flames.

Really great job on these... I love how the uniforms have progressed. Believe it or not, I actually agree with BIGBAD and his eternal caps lock that the armpits need more of a "starburst" effect, like on the shorts. I wouldn't mind seeing a little more of that. But I really like the overall look. Nice new font, too. And I love that alternate. Wow... I guess that to a certain extent the flames don't work in purple, but they look mighty fine if you ask me in purple. Nice job.

I might be the only one, but assuming you'd kept the basketball trim black, I'd have much rather seen a black alternate than the orange one, which even with the brightened shade, still feels kind of salmon-ish to me.

A+ for removing the grey, which stands out like a sore thumb on the set (although is the current logo above the nameplate the old one, with the grey? kind of looks like it).

THE SHORTS ARE AWESOME. I DONT SEE THAT THE TOPS LOOK LIKE FLAMES. MAYBE IF THE "PITS" HAD MORE OF A "STARBURST" LOOK SIMILIAR TO THE SHORTS

Sweet looking set especially the modified firebird logo and the orange jerseys.

This is definetly better than their current set.

Seriously everyone if you have nothing to say about the concept than ignore BIGBAD, all you are doing is ruining a good thread that has great potential

Now as far as the concept goes, I say great concept, the only one thing that bothers me is the secondary. Try to go for a streaking sun, don't know why but just seems bland to me, other than that I like it. Outstanding work

Great concept. Definitely the most excellent uniform ever made. I hope that the "blazing PHX" logo would be the main logo.

thx again for taking the time to look and comment on this...

bruschimania, you were right about the back of the neck logo, so i went about making a new one with my new typeface, and i also edited the main logo i had before (made it a bit more purple-dominant):

...also, i toyed a bit with the uni top's flame panels, and couldnt get anything i was happy with to be more "starbursty"

2 flaming balls on the logo set for just 1 team is already too much IMO. Maybe remove the flame and just retain the ball and PHX, that's enough. Just my own POV.

This is my favorite concept ever. Way way way better than what they wear now. I'm glad to see that you mixed in tidbits from the past for the wordmark and that you got rid of the stupid logo with the streaking sun too.

Wow, the logos are incredible. I absolutely love everything about this concept. I have to say that this, concept along with your Hornets concept from a while back, are two of my favorite NBA concepts I have ever seen.

Holy flaming armpits!!!! Someone needs some Speedstick!!!

Actually a really good concept, progressed nicely. I like the logo sets and the shorts, just not a fan of flaming pits.

Agree that a new wordmark would be an improvement. One of my favorite things about both of their former identities was how the N was an upside-down U. I'm not advocating returning to a past wordmark, but maybe "borrowing" an aspect of one.

Here's a way to update the current primary so that it's closer to the '90s version and no longer has ugly stupid grey:

Then use those scripts instead of Berthold City, which never felt right for them. Doesn't need to be new.
