Design contest: What are your ideas for a new Milwaukee Bucks logo and jersey?
ANOTHER UPDATE (6/18/14): We’re now pulling together all designs and will be posting them on this site within the next week. Thanks for your submissions and general interest! – Jeremy
UPDATE: See designs on our Facebook page.
I don’t see any problem with the Milwaukee Bucks uniforms. I don’t mind the red and green. I grasp that those colors can be paired successfully without causing any person who sees them to start prepping a Christmas shopping list. I think last year’s increased emphasis on the color green was cool. I don’t even mind the red alternates. When the Bucks moved away from purple, I thought it was a great move and I was just fine with where things had gone.
I am in the minority. I’ve come to accept that.
It seems like there’s a never ending chorus of complaints about Milwaukee’s color scheme. Some hate the Christmasness of it. Some think the Chicago Bulls are the true owners of the color red. Some just want a return to the good old days green focused uniforms with just a hint of red.
Milwaukee’s new ownership group seems to have inspired a whole new round of conversation around the Bucks colors, logo and jerseys. These comments especially gave hope to Milwaukee’s many fashion critics:
“It does need a little bit of help,” Lasry said of Bucks’ red and green color scheme. Also said he wants more Bucks gear available.

Well, I can admit when I’m wrong. This is obviously something that matters. I’ve seen ideas floated about elsewhere, and now I ask you, Bucksketball reader, to submit your ideas.
E-mail your logo and jersey design to Jeremy@Bucksketball.com along with your name. I will post entries on Bucksketball Monday June 16th and open up a poll to decide which is the winner.
Alternately, you can send me designs on Twitter if you’ve already posted them online.
The winning design will receive a gift card. I haven’t nailed down just where the gift card will be to just yet, but know that there is a gift card at stake for first place. Please only submit a design that you designed. If you saw something cool elsewhere, figure out who first submitted that design and encourage them to send it my way.
