Re: American-Canadian Basketball Association

Hey I know your excited to get your season under way but I would be interested in seeing you tackle some of your criticism before that. There's a lot of potential here and you've gotten some fantastic feedback and C&C and I think it would be smart to fix all that up before moving onto what's next. You don't want this to feel rushed or make it seem like you aren't listening to the people invested in your content.

Re: American-Canadian Basketball Association

Hey everyone, the 1965 regular season will not be posted today. JHA and I both talked about it, and we realized that we need to focus on making our looks sharper to better please all of you. We will be taking some time off to make this all happen, but we promise it will be worth the wait. This was not our original plan on tacking the critiques, but we both agree that it is the best choice to make. Thanks to everyone for leaving feedback on the identities. It is truly appreciated.

Re: American-Canadian Basketball Association

Hey everybody! We are back with new and improved looks for most of the teams! We appreciate your time and patience as we went through this process and I promise it will be worth your wait. Buckle up, because this is gonna be a long one. 

Each updated team will have their old look on the left, and the new look on the right. Explanations of what changed will be right under the graphic for that team. Now that all that is out of the way, let's begin!

For Calgary, the ring is much thinner now with a black outline, and the inner design is bigger in contrast. The wordmark also replaced gray with black.
Detroit dons a new block font and a new color in general with light green instead of red. Don't worry, cream is here to stay.
Montreal replaced the sword wordmark on their jerseys with a new serif font. The navy blue is now a tad lighter, and red is gone in place of white.

The only change New York made is mint now being the clear secondary color over yellow.
In Ottawa, yellow is the new gold as the Herons brighten up their color scheme a bit. Ottawa also added a thin white outline around the heron, and a thicker yellow outline around the entire logo. The font is now bold, and a new number font was added to both jerseys.
Alright, here is where the big changes begin. The Clydesdales nearly drop their whole color scheme for something new. However, we wanted to keep part of their original identity with the green. The gold/yellow/orange compliments green much better than the purple did, and a white outline is added.

The San Diego Tigers are one of two teams that remain untouched.
Things get colorful in Seattle, as purple is added to their black and gray color scheme. A new purple wordmark is now in use on the away jerseys.

The Toronto Falcons also remain untouched.
The Twin Cities Chargers are one of two teams to have a brand new logo. Although nothing was said about it, I felt the original logo was lazy and needed a change. Along with that, Maroon and black are out of the color scheme in place for a simpler look.
Vancouver probably underwent the most changes donning a brand new logo and wordmark, as well as maroon being added to the away jersey. Orange was also erased from their colors.
Only one change for the Wolves was made, as black now is on the away jersey instead of gray.

Once again, thanks a bunch for your patience. We worked really hard on these and we hope you all are pleased. All that being said, please let us know who you will be cheering for in the upcoming 1965 season. C&C always appreciated.

Re: American-Canadian Basketball Association

Taking and applying critique and criticism is a crucial part of being a designer and you guys have really showed that here! You've clearly both put a lot of hard work into this and I just want to say I appreciate it. Overall I believe you've made all the designs better and more congruent.

The Jets look much more era-appropriate, I'm digging the double green in place of red. Montreal is much cleaner and sharper. The color balance tweaks for NY work well. The new yellow and bolder logo for the Herons creates a much more vibrant brand. They might have stolen my rooting interest. The double outlines for St. Louis adds so much to the logo, good choice. I'm surprised by the new color scheme but I can get behind it. I could see them holding on to the green and being one of those teams that changes their secondary color often.

I think I suggested adding a color to Seattle but I'm not sold on the purple. It's an interesting look but I think the black-white-gray was cleaner. The Twin Cities Chargers look much better, especially the new logo. The new color scheme is fantastic. Big time improvements for the Jacks. The whole brand really pops now.

Re: American-Canadian Basketball Association

I'll echo what Steel said, all of the changes were upgrades in my eyes

Re: American-Canadian Basketball Association

Big-time upgrades here, I love the Metros' color scheme. It's not easy to take criticism well and improve your designs, but you guys managed it masterfully. Excited for the start!

Re: American-Canadian Basketball Association

Dig the new updates except for Seattle and St Louis but they all look pretty good. Can’t wait for 65

Re: American-Canadian Basketball Association

Good work on the updates!
Love Winnipeg the most at the moment, Detriot and Vancouver are the other solid looks.

Re: American-Canadian Basketball Association

Pretty good start so far!  Definitely going to root for the Detroit Jets for not only being from Michigan, but also because I love that uniform!  Very nice!
