With Nike taking over as the official uniform provider of the NBA, there has been much speculation about the style changes coming forth. Thunder fans have already seen the mostly untouched Association and Icon editions, but there are two alternates yet to be unveiled. As such, fan-made concept designs are floating around the Internet at an accelerated pace.
Because we wanted to get in on the madness, we reached out to Justin Peabody — graphic designer and concept jersey extraordinaire — to develop some custom Thunder uniform options for use on Daily Thunder. Not only did Justin come through for us, he sent a grand total of 24 looks across six complete sets of uniforms. The final result is…. well, it’s really great. There’s something for everyone, and many ideas we would love to see the organization incorporate somewhere down the line.
Justin is the Associate Creative Director at a marketing agency in Dallas called TWINOAKS, and his first design job was actually an internship with the Thunder. He has worked for brands such as Duracell, Tide, Jack Link’s, Perrier, Sam’s Club, Sauza Tequila, and Under Armour. He also shook Sam Presti’s hand once, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him.
