    I was referring to web color. Traditional Royal Blue isn't bad, but it's not exactly the color of the state flag.
    Again, it's still unclear what color Royal Blue is, about 5 different state flag colors here.

    I see what you mean now. I'm very surprised by the inconsistency.

    Pantone people! Use a Pantone! Unfortunately I've never seen anywhere on the State Government website that lists a Pantone for the states blue and gold.

    I like the uniforms and the floor designs. I didn't watch the video so I have no opinion on the other aspects of the presentation. I never really cared for the Flo-Jo's do I have no desire to see them returned.

    That typeset is AWFUL. Coupled with the wavy gravy retro style and the bubbley name on back letters it's just a mishmash that comes out terrible. The stripes across the front/back and on the lower leg are way too wide too. The more I look at it the more I dislike it. Better than the new Nets logo I guess.

    yea, i'd be prrrretty disappointed if this became our new look. Too much going on, lines plus hand doesn't work for me, and those curves will get old fast.

    ...and Bauhaus for the name on the back? Can't say I ever seen anything look good with that font.

    sorry peeps, i'll be a downer as well

    First off, I just had to do an animation for design school so I have a new-found appreciation for what this video took.

    Now to the design...

    I like the idea of embracing our past. Heck, the Wizards did it by going back to the red, white, and blue and they brought the hand back to their DC logo. The Brooklyn Nets have officially changed their colors to solely black and white, and mixed with their new logos, to pay homage to the classic subway signs (I believe) that were around Brooklyn in the 60's. Why they take pride in being the only team in the NBA without a color other than black and white, I don't know, but that's a different topic.

    Anyway, I LOVE replacing our current navy blue with the royal blue. I LOVE the idea of improving our court in any way possible, especially if it's by putting the 'P' in the center of the court. The font needs to be changed, and this video addresses that issue. I'm not completely sold on the Indiana-shaped cutout in the D, but it could grow on me. I agree with a lot of you in thinking that the jerseys are a bit confusing with the multiple stripes and mixing of the eras, and I'm not personally a face of the font used for the players names, but it matches with the design.

    So before I go on with an in depth analysis, I'm going to stop myself. I loved the video, props for that, and I love the idea behind changing the look of the Pacers to match the obviously on-going changed look of our team.

    As a graphic design student and pacers fan I am happy someone took it upon themselves to put in the work to hopefully get the pacers attention and to change the look of our jerseys and possibly the logo too. I really hated when they updated the P with grey stroke around it. Grey is not in our color pallet so why even put in there?

    The typeface

    I do like the 80s typeface but, it should prob stay in the 80s. I do agree it should be cleaner looking. Sort of like what we have now but, with minor changes.

    While I like the idea of putting Indiana in the D it does not mesh well with the rest of the letters. Like the idea around it but, I think people will get that we are from indiana since it says it on the jersey.

    The logo

    I do like the logo somewhat

    I don't like the stoke around the logo though. If you want to capture an older feel then lose the stroke.

    Colors

    We need to go back to royal blue or true blue. The style nowadays really favors the brighter colors anyhow.

    The jersey

    It ain't horrible but, it isn't great either. I don't the Indiana/Pacers on the front since it is on a tilt and the tilted team name/player names went away long ago and should stay away. I'm not sold on the 60s style either. Or mixing the 60s and 80s

    With that said I do like the track he is on with his design and the thought behind it.

    If we do intend to redesign then we need to almost reinvent our jersey style. New but with a slightly older feel.

    The wizards and warriors did a great job in doing that.

    I'd rather keep the current Pacer P (no hand, no tennis ball) but just lose the text altogether (no 'Pacers'). Navy blue, or to go retro use royal blue.
    No royal blue - dark blue and yellow are the colors of our state flag.

    I don't know how those uniforms would look in 3D. Sure, they look great in 2D, but I do not think that these uniforms will translate. I would like to see the Pacers redeem the vintage look of the Fieldhouse. That's not to say, "pinstripes" but that concept reflects the glory of hoosier basketball and the architecture of the city and the Fieldhouse.

    I have to admit, I love the logo but I hate the uniforms and the 1980's script. Everything is well done, kudos.

    I really like parts of it, and then some parts not so much. I love the D in the Indiana, and the Flo Jo feel of the uniforms. I don't like the way the white strips go thru the logo, especially on the E. It looks funny. Also, the stripes need to carry thru all of the letters. I don't know why he skipped certain ones. The crooked logo on the front of the jersey, and the crooked name on the back is weird too. And the name font on the back is wretched. Overall I like it though. Fix the logo stripes, straighten the logos and last name on the jerseys, and pick a new font for the last name. Do that and I would love it!

    okay if you wanted to actually improve this.
    As a professional, I would do the following.

    Uniforms-
    Lose the waviness across the chest. Make it straight and have it wrap around the to the back and then curve down to merge back into the vertical stripes down the side. Make it symmetrical.
    Need a different font, one that will allow for longer last names, so it needs to be a condensed version.

    Logo- It don't bother me that much, but you could stand to lose the motion stripes. Only because at reduced size it looks busy.

    Typesets- this needs to be rethought all together. Move away from the 80's.
