    Incredible work on the jersey, bigdub. Not much more I can say beyond that.

    BUT, these jerseys and the color combo here, are fantastic.

    Very few names could only work with specific colors. Krewe probably wouldn't work with anything other than the Mardi Gras colors.

    But you could take "Brass" or "Angels" or "Dukes" or "Pelicans" and stick them on this jersey with Royal Blue and Old Gold and it would be just as sweet as this "Knights" mockup.

    Good job bigdub, as always.

    Those jerseys AND colors would also work with Corsairs, including the FDL.

    This... Might as well admit it's going to be the Pelicans. Let's stop *****-footing around these alternatives that will not be our mascot next fall.

    This is superb: crisp, regal, awesome. I'll certainly buy some Knights gear if that is the name, and the blue-and-gold combo really works for me.
    With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!

    Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.

    Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.

    The Pelicans concept has been completed but I can't show that set to you since it will be one that I will be proposing to the team.

    The Knights weren't a concept that I planned on presenting, that's why I chose to post it. I feel bad that I can't show you any of the designs if that helps!

    I still plan on using the designs that John did for the Knights and Dominos and fitting them into my template since people did ask and he gave the go ahead.

    Even though I did plan on doing a concept for Corsairs, I backed off of it after reading some material about Jean Lafitte since I was using his likeness as my primary logo. The problem that I had with his imagery was the fact that he bought, sold and traded slaves amongst his other dealings. For that, I didn't think that his likeness would be the right image for the team brand.

    It sucked for me because I really liked how the logo of him came out! I can still do something else with the concept logo wise, I still might, but it won't be a pressing concept to get completed. I would still like for the team to use their ABA throwbacks as the Buccaneers, one because of nostalgia, two because of sales/marketing and three because IMO it satisfy's those who want that nautical attachment.

    Like I said in another post, my Pelicans concept has (4) main uniforms just in that set with an optional (3) other alternates that the team could use for marketing including their Mardi Gras uni's, Bucs that I mentioned above and one original creation of my own.

    I started sketching out ideas for a VooDoo and Hurricanes concept just to get them off my mind. The Hurricanes I think I will choose to propose to the team since I don't see the VooDoo being a valid option unless the owner of the Arena team is willing to deal!

    Even though I'm not big on those Knights logos, I do like the jersey design a lot.

    We'll see the Pelicans stuff when Benson announces the name change.

    Good luck Dub!

    I understand dub, good luck!

    1st post, although I've been following for awhile (especially these concept threads).

    That uni design, in the red/black/gold color scheme is near flawless. I'm tired of the same old blue-tone combos, just seems outdone now. But these - although you share some color groupings (Bulls, Blazers, Heat), I don't think any of them pull it together quite like this. It's got a tough personality without being overworked. This is the best yet bigdub, kudos.

    Love the Knights jerseys, Dub. Very modern & sleek design along with the NOLA-centric font, yet nothing too over-the-top & busy. The royal blue and old gold is very nice, but MAAAAAAAN, that black, Astros/D-Backs red, and old gold is a sick, edgy combo!!!

    But I agree with some others about the logos, seem a little too soft, texture-wise. I was expecting something similar to the sword usage in 78's avi, with the FDL incorporation.

    I love the Knights design, especially the Black/Gold/Red design. I would prefer the away jersey be black however than red. I love the black/gold color scheme with the red being more of a minor color, like you did in the white home jerseys.

    But I love all of your designs BigDub, keep it up. And if you have any others that you aren't submitting to the team, post those as well

    Love the Blue and Gold

    I gotta say the Blue and gold is so much nicer than that red, blk and gold. We need to stick with that. That way we keep a bit of history with a shade of blue in the uni and add the gold to represent new orleans...i like it and the fleur de lis on the uniforms. What program do u use to make the jerseys

  22. #297
    also i think john lafitte would be a cool looking logo...u should go with it no matter what the nature of his background was. we can not hide or run from our past...just accept and move on!

    You sir, are amazing. I had a redesign for the Knights sketched up, but you just blew it away, man. Simply incredible.

    That blue is looking awfully creole. The red ones are nice, though. Still not wild about the gold accents -- I think silver would be better.

    Not be a negative nancy, but I think it's great youre proposing to the team, and I just think if you're going to propose more than one, I think the knights, krewe, dominos or voodoo may be better than hurricanes, just because well, hurricanes may not be the best idea for New Orleans and it'd be a shame to let those great designs go to waste

    Fan of the blue and gold color scheme btw
