NBL Team Logos

Most of the teams logos look pretty decent, but I have an issue with the Breakers logo, looks like a 12 year old created that in Powerpoint or something.

Adelaide's to an extent need a bit more graphics.

Taipans, Crocs and Hawks all look awesome and professional.

36ers one is the worst, NZ isn't great. Rest are fine.

re: Team Logos

36ers & Breakers are a bit on the boring/unimaginative side. United's one doesn't do much for me either to be honest.

Not that it really matters. Being identifiable probably is the most important thing for a logo, which means it really just needs to be inoffensive enough that it doesn't need changing, so that it can be used for an extended period of time and build up a recognition factor with people.

There are some pretty lame logos out there for some very popular teams in other sports and it doesn't seem to hurt them.

Breakers could be making better use of their team name "Breakers". Get a wave in there instead of the clip art basketball.

I preferred the previous incarnation of the 36ers Logo, i felt it was a stronger, better balanced mark. The others are all pretty good though.

We should go back to the old style with the big 36ers almost like on the hats you can get.

The Breakers name is in reference to running the fast break, not the beach.

Yes... so many of these logo need major upgrading. Perth have made theirs look out of balance with that red key line now - just doesn't suit it at all. I've had my fair share at redesigning and submitting my logos to these mentioned teams. Not sure if Issac will allow me to post a link, but this is something that I've put a bit of time into before.

In a comp of 8 teams I don't know why two teams need to both wear "Red, Black and White" as their colours.

RMQ, so as team's drop out, the remaining teams should change their colours?

Maybe Perth could have stuck with yellow, black, grey.

Hawks have used red, white, black since their second season.

Is Melbourne United's logo, a man standing with his hands on his hips, with a hoody on and the basketball as the head? (That's the way I see it)

Those 36ers ones are amazing! Changing that dark navy to a more royal blue and a sharper yellow would be more like Sixer colours.

I think the Wildcats logo is awful and the circa 1995 logo of the wildcat with the the red flames or whatever it is just looks cooler and it goes with our red jersey... Not sure why we have orange in the jersey.

Didn't Illawarra have green in their jerseys when CJ Bruton played for them?

@ 36Boggers - Why the NBL and clubs don't come running to guys like you and the guy that designs uniforms (forgot his name), I have no idea. Everything you and he do, beat anything the NBL has ever had, hands down.

Your logos for the 36ers are the best logos that club would have EVER had. I would absolutely buy that t-shirt, even though I have never bought any Sixers merch in my life.

Appreciate the kind feedback people!

Sadly it just seems to be one of those hard things to gain full trust from a pro club, that a sole freelancer is capable of delivering a good product. I have tried on numerous occasions over the past 5 years to make inroads into the 36ers and many other clubs. I always wonder myself who designs these club logos and it almost always leaves me disappointed...

I've always liked the Cairns logo - they got it right from the start and its stood the test of time! It could do with a slight update, but otherwise its what a good basketball logo should be.

@proud yeah there was a teal bit (maybe a pinstripe, and another year had a thick strip) in the uniform, but again they were black, red and white mainly.

NBL is tied to ISC.

Not sure about but 36BLOGGERS, but some external designers are exclusive to their employers and can't always just freelance.

36Blogger you are the best NBL Logo designer in the nation!

It's a shame the clubs don't listen to the people when someone like yourself produces some quality!

I have a challenge for you.

Take each team and their main sponsor (the one that takes priority on the team's jerseys) and design a good looking jersey.

I'm interested to see what you can come up with. Maybe even use that dope 36ers logo you've made.

Love the designs, what kind of feedback do you get from clubs?

Frankly, I'm surprised they don't go with freelancers, they tend to be more passionate and skilled than so called professional branding/logo design companies.

RMQ,

Why just one logo? Simply not viable.

Front has a Major, a huge ISC logo in the centre which must be part of the contract, a big NBL logo in comparison to NBA, and another huge one on the opposite side.

The back also has two.

It's all well and good to say they look crap, but who is going to foot the bill by removing hundreds thousand of dollars worth of branding?

Only one logo coz i didn't want to create too much work.

The minor (smaller) logos can be placed on the shoulder/chest area and lower back under the number. They don't require as much integration as the major sponsor.

Make something look good that sells more and that is more attractive that people actually. I'm not saying make the major sponsor logo smaller, I'm saying make the overall integration of it more attractive.

re: NBL Team Logos

Right on the money in regards to team Sponsor logos taking up more space than the team logo/name. I think the NBL needs to reconsider this aspect too, and I'm not saying do away with the sponsor logo, the fact is they should work in with the team design/colours, and not be forced to stick it on there with a big box shape.

Its like the EPL for example, they have big sponsors on their front, but at least it fits in with the colour/style of the overall teams look. I really wish the NBL would make the team come first and not the sponsor - I totally understand the need for promoting the sponsor, but the fans aren't there to see them. This is basically the reason I haven't bought any NBL merch, because the jersey's are like billboards instead of a classic uniform.
