The Oladipo one is very nice.

I think the Ben McLemore one could be improved by using a more consistent stroke weight across all parts.

Could you do one for damian lillard? Would love to see what you come up with considering his recent deal with adidas.

Thanks.

For Ben's, that would definitely help the balance in the logo a bit-- something I was having trouble with when I was designing it.

Sounds like a challenge I can take up! Do you know any references for Adidas Player logos? Ive seen a couple for some of their soccer signee's like Messi. A lot of times I see them try to incorporate the stripes, but I haven't seen too many of their basketball player logo's, except like D-Rose.

These are great. Very Symbolic. Anything you could do for falcons qb matt ryan?

You could incorporate the three stripes into lillard with the "ill". Just an idea

What is Anthony Bennett's supposed to be? Not really seeing anything except scribble.

Nice approach with the Zeller and Olapido logos. Really dig those.

Not such a big fan of the tie logo. Perhaps it needs more simplification as the tie is a bit too prominent. Also looks too long - perhaps you can shorten it by bringing in some perspective.

Also looked at your site. Apart from the broken 'style' link and the missing 'about' content I really like your work. Especially the IC1 logo.

At least you see something ;).

The "Trilliumband" is a symbol that represents Ontario, the province which Bennett is from.

The cross bar was an abstraction of the "A", leaving 2 "petals" to construct an abstract "B"

Maybe my execution was weak, but these were just for fun. Thanks for allowing me to explain a bit, that one is hard to understand without a point of reference.

Really great critique! Definitely going to try the perspective approach.

Sorry it was a soft launch. For something I am working on today.
