Fort Worth NBA concept (revision)

Recommended Posts

I made a concept for an NBA team in Fort Worth sometime last year... or the year before. Anyway, my original concept wasn't the cleanest or best, but I felt it was a decent start.

I decided to redo it with a better representation and an actual identity UP FRONT. Ladies and gentlemen, the Fort Worth Outlaws. (redone).

Logos

(Colors = Crimson, Royal Blue, & Gray)

- The name "Outlaws" is not only a common western mascot, but named for the original "Fort Worth Five" you see pictured right above.


- The font is Art Deco to match the Southwestern Art Deco style buildings you'll see around the center of the city.

- I'll admit, the logos aren't exactly what I was going for, but the idea is there. I wanted to make sure that the city was mostly on display.

- I chose crimson because it really isn't used in American pro sports very often... In fact, I don't think it's used at all.

- The number style is your basic block font, but slightly altered.

- The design of the uniforms was meant to look more timeless than "traditional" or "modern".

- "P.E.A.U." = Populus enim ad urbem (For the City and For the People)

Of course, I'm open to any criticism. However, I'm NOT going to accept any complaints on the city I chose like one guy did the last time. It's a concept, not a real life identity competition.

Thanks for any feedback.

the secondary logo's ear needs some work and the tertiary logo should have a different font, also if they're called the outlaws they should have more western logo's. Otherwise it's a great start

That's the thing.

I did want it to be Western... but not TOO Western. I didn't want it to be too cliche, ya know?

Just felt that the imagery of the lone star was good enough since this entire identity is more 1930's based than 1800's based. Besides, Fort Worth has plenty of old west Texas stereotypes, so I thought I'd do something related to Fort Worth, but different than what is expected.

But I will look at it and see if I can maybe work something in. No horses, though. The Mavs pretty much own that in this state.

I meant to ask, what did ya mean by that?

Ahh yes, I remember our little excursion last year. The uniforms are pretty good. The logos could use some work, but are a good start. See if you could try to fit the number font onto a logo as well.

Amazing, nice throwback style. Like the lettering across the jersey. tjswag is right, could use just a bit more western style, don't do too much though. One more element. Great style

Had anything in mind?

As a Ft Worth guy, I love the Art Deco... with that in mind, I would not do the Longhorn at all... the FWPD logo is cliche.

A more Zig Zag Art Deco feel would be perfect. utilize some of the lines in the Uni.

If any animal for mascot it has to be a Panther... as Ft W is the Panther City.

Black and Crimson, the Blue and White from FD is nice (retired FF here) but Id go with the black for panthers.

I'm pretty content with the current home/away uniforms. But I do like the idea of black with zig zag moderne, and I will do something with it in the alternate uniform.

lol.

I knew someone was going to point out the RWB scheme. I thought that this was the best set of colors for this team's city and identity, and I'm sticking with it.

However, I WILL be experimenting with different colors later on. So stay tuned...

So while your feeling creative, how about doing a North Crowley Panther... so they can do away with the North Carolina Logo

I kinda have.

That logo you see in my Sig is one I did back in high school (sort of, since the original was thrown away years ago), but I Dont think I'll do a full uniform for NCHS.

Other color schemes, before I go further...

The anti-Dallas colors (Maroon, cardinal red, gold): Dallas is double blue and silver, Fort Worth could be double red and gold.

The "Dumbar" colors (Royal & Black): As requested, the same colors as an East F.W. high school

1011549_10201987480242038_18578615_n.jpg

The Stereotypical Texas colors (Brown, khaki, and orange): I named it this because there are some people out there who think that Texas teams should have brown in their color schemes simply because they are Texas teams.

1510935_10201987478762001_253911935_n.jp

Fort Worth Flyers colors (Light Blue, Navy, and copper?): In "honor" of the defunct D-League team from last decade.

1530396_10201987479362016_1776719401_n.j

The Old Flag colors (Green, Royal Blue, and Black): A scheme based off the old city flag

1545960_10201987488602247_2037171180_n.j

"Experiment" 1 (Dark Royal Blue, Burnt Orange, and Silver): Think of this as a mix between the Texas Longhorns and old Dallas Cowboys...

1520723_10201987479762026_192957361_n.jp

"Experiment" 2 (Purple, "Dust Red", and Silver): Just something different, while adding a "new" color in there...

1497463_10201987478722000_2104445581_n.j

Any other color schemes in mind?
