The way it works:

For the first round we’ll have two matchups a day, voting for those matchups will remain open for 24 hours – 9AM to 9AM the following day, at which point the voting will be closed and the new matchup will appear on the site. So the schedule for the week is like this:

  • Tuesday (West): Clean Cut Huskies vs Paw Ball, Canadian Raptors vs Graphic Novel – Voting
  • Wednesday (East): Sleek vs Glow, Operation Skeleton vs JT II – Voting
  • Thursday (West): Purple and Red Fauxback vs JT III, Red Huskies vs Est. 1946
  • Friday (East): Fierce vs JT I, Old Renewed vs Boost

All voting will re-open on Saturday 9AM to Sunday 9AM. The first round results will be officially announced on Sunday afternoon, and that’s when the second round schedule will be released.

Red Huskies (3) vs vs Est. 1946 (6)

Red Huskies

Huskies Logo: I feel we’re in a new era with the Raptors, and a complete change would symbolize we’re not bottom of the barrel team anymore, and we’re not extinct (pun intended). I didn’t want to copy the T-Wolves logo seeing as they’re in the same species, I think a simple yet bold logo will catch the eyes of casual and hardcore fans every where.

Jerseys: A lot of teams (if not all) have a really SIMPLE jersey design, being Canada’s only team I think we NEED to stand out! The claw marks along with the different coloured back (like the ’00 jersey) adds sort of a retro look to the jersey. I think the giant maple leaf speaks for itself.

Side note: The paw print (with the maple leaf) in the middle of both pictures of the jerseys, I think would be awesome as a centerpiece of the Huskies court. These designs can be tweaked if needed later on

Est. 1946

I had selected both team names to work with because I appreciate and value the historical significance that the Huskies name has not only for Toronto, but for professional basketball as a whole. The Raptors selection was simply because I was born and raised in toronto and have been a die hard fan since the first time I saw a game. I’m a full time student and graphic designer with my own clothing line.

Vote: Red Huskies vs Est. 1946

    The Red Huskies’ Jersey look really nice while the EST logo is a little plain/boring. Love the history that it brings however….I love the colors as well….Where is the Jersey example? I really like the court…

    • mike, prague

      I like Est reaallllly professional … a bit boring though yeah.

      I like The Red Huskies too, but I’d really like them if the creator did what I told him earlier and not have it so over-crowded then it would be sincerely awesome.

        Even shifting the claw marks closer to the base of the jersey would make it more slick.

  • Rapsallday

    Also, although the JT3 jersey resembles the Rockets’ jersey a bit…. the red and purple is wayyyyyy to scary similar to the Clippers….

  • arsenalist

    The Est. 1946 is a bit of a lie, because there’s a pretty huge gap between 1946, the Huskies being disbanded, and the Raptors appearing on the scene.

    I like Fauxback, it’s got a classic feel to it, whereas JT III seems to be lacking any personality.

    • Sig

      I really like Fauxback as well. It might be my favourite.

  • Larp

    Red doesn’t quite mesh with the image of a husky for me. I guess it doesn’t fit well with a raptor either, but I went with Est. because blue feels more harmonious with the husky.

    While fauxback and JT are nice, they look more like alternate jerseys to me, meaning the Raptors could start wearing them this year without being re-branded.

    Est. 1946 is really nice – classy look – but far too Brooklyn Nets. http://l.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/zDlZuQuKpgUMzCiAzVkEOw–/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3M7cT04NTt3PTYzMA–/http://media.zenfs.com/en/blogs/sptusnbaexperts/A-detail-of-the-center-court-logo.-Photo-via-www-nba-com-nets.jpg

    Love the Fauxback, even if the vintage look is a little generic as is. A couple tweaks could personalize it more for the Raptors.

    Not a fan of the thick & heavy tear marks, paw prints, and stripes on the sides of the jerseys and shorts of some of these designs, ex. Red Huskies and Paw Ball.

    Still great work overall, of course.

  • SR

    I used to hate the purple, but man, those Fauxbacks – does any other team have the red/purple combo? Not that I can think of.

    All the red, red/white, red/black, red/grey variations, on the other hand… There are a PILE of teams with some combo of those colours, and more and more of them have simplified, monochromatic looks. All these guys have at least one dominantly red jersey: Houston, Miami, Philly, Chicago, Clippers, Portland, Pistons, ATL, New Jersey, Washington, and Milwaukee.

    That’s a lot of damn red! I want more purple! And less minimalism! Everyone’s going minimal – let’s see some personality/history/Toronto in these unis.

    Red Huskies looks great – however I would 86 the claw marks on the jersey
