Denver Nuggets

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to expirement with a new uniform for the Nuggets.

I never was a fan of their current set, it looked good for about 2 seasons but I don't really like the design nor the colors.

Decided to return to actual gold color, not yellow, and lose the baby blue. I think minimizing the color palette makes the uniforms looks "alpine" fresh :D

Few points:

- I love the alternate uniform wordmark, decided to create a DENVER one to go along with it. Perhaps I should've put Denver on the road, but I just realized that as I was writing this. D'Oh!

- Ending the side panels in a triangle to resemble their current set and symbolize a mountain peak.

- Mountain design on shorts because with the whole new "lighter" NBA thing I figured putting the logo patch on would make the shorts too heavy, I did however place a small patch on the waist.

Basically that's that...thoughts?

As you already said, "Denver" and "Nuggets" should really be swapped on the home and road. Also think that your primary is a bit bland... when they originally used these colors for the set in the 90's, I think the primary had some red in it that helped out the top portion.

Love the actual jersey design, very crisp and the gold does a good job of differentiating it a bit from the other navy jerseys in the league.

I could say that neither wordmark matches the primary, but you specifically said you were doing the concept based off their current 3rd.

Those are awesome man! I love those colors, and the wordmarks and mountains on the shorts are sick. My only suggestions would be to flip the wordmarks, as has been said, and maybe add in a 3rd color (possibly red) for trim, just to liven up the color scheme a little.

Thanks for the comments thus far.

Really there's a lot of color combos I could've used. I had a version with light blue side panels and one with red aswell, but I felt that a simpler palette might be the way to go.

Some red would look nice, but then they're be another blue white red team with a bit of gold. This was they're blue and gold, not yellow like the Pacers.

I like this too. Have you tried it with gold panels and white piping on the roads though (reverse of what you have now)?

Actually I have, but it felt like Gold was the main color, I wanted to keep it as an accent.

I'll actually post the different colors I tried later on, and I guess you guys can tell me which is best.

Then thats my bad, I thought you were going for a blue and gold team.

Solid work. However, a few things I'm not really sold on though are...

- As everyone's already stated, swap the wordmarks. Nickname at home. City on the road.

- The "Denver" wordmark. For some reason it just looks sloppy. Could just be the font though.

- The digits. I'll pass on borrowing from the OKC Thunder.

But overall, I like it. As much as like like Denver's current powder blues, I'm kinda diggin' the Notre Dame color scheme.
