    The problem with a lot of creative, out of the box designs is that they don't age very well. Shoulder pads from the 80s, ripped jeans, etc.

    I hope whoever does this design just sticks to smart artistic principles like layout and design and likes all of the exact same things that I do.

    Hahahah amazing

    i will be very embarrassed if we go with the black and gold colour scheme...we might as well call the team the Toronto OVO Owls...i mean i get that drake is popular but if we go w the black and gold it seems like were bending over and letting drake fuck us in the ass...have some self respect mlse

    Sid Lee has multiple offices, the Toronto office hasn't had a hand in all of the campaigns with some of the companies mentioned, but they are a talented bunch,

    And whether it's Black & Purple or Black & Gold, at least it will be more memorable than Red, White, Blue -or- Red, White, Black; which so many team's already use. (Remember, after all these years, why do we see so many people wearing purple Raps gear at games? Is it to simply blend in? Nope.)

    (and re-branding with blue & white immediately links the Raps to the Toronto Maple Leafs (TML); and last time I checked there were a ton of TML haters, so re-branding as Canada's team should probably avoid that direct visual link)

    to be fair, the Miura is a timeless design. Any colour would look great on it

    It's a legend because of the eye lashes

    The Real Madrid colors works wells, you can still keep the red so that's cool. Those jerseys are one of my favorites.

    On a more important note though, my car ran out of gas today and I just filled the **** this morning. I didn't drive very far so maybe there is a hole in my ****? I hope I don't need to buy a new **** I hear they're expensive. Anyone have any ideas on where I can buy a cheap ****?

    And I'd say it could be argued that Gold is a timeless colour.

    Default Raptors Re-Brand Under Way

    I'd love to see black with gold writing and some pinstripes man, subtle, evenly spaced out and not too many. That'd be drizzy dope.

    I'd love if they took the old uniforms with the jagged pinstripe and made it a sleek black and gold.

    Also, when I think gold I think a brighter yellow not this dull metallic shit they had on drake night. It needs to pop

    I found it surprising that they showed the old logo so prominently in the drake night shirts. You know cause the claw logo is so fucking badass and the basketball playing raptor is pretty childish.

    hopefully that's not the plan for the real design.

    From the articles about hiring Sid Lee it seems like we're going to get a full logo redesign, as well as new colors.

    I personally worry that following the current minimalist trend using trendy colors (ie: gold & black), could wind up dating the Raptors as much as the linkage with Jurassic Park does. I also know there'll be many fans supporting such a transition, but I think a move to gold could easily go horribly wrong - like Donald Trump or Liberace wrong!
    This is the biggest danger, and it's exacerbated by involving Drake. (Apparent he's met with Sid Lee already and will have input.)

    We should absolutely NOT be going for what's trendy. We should be going for what will stand up for at least a decade and preferably longer.

    Pop music careers are fleeting because tastes change fairly quickly. We don't want our logo and identity to be susceptible in the same way. It already bothers me that Grantland has taken to calling us the Toronto Drakes.

    We should be rebranding our team based on a basketball identity. We seem to be going in the opposite direction... Letting culture define our brand and hoping that will help bolster the team's success. If it backfires we are going to look like idiots, again.

    We go from basing our brand around a movie, to now a musician, maybe in 20 years we can base our identity around a really popular video game.
