Design brief

Organization name

Basketball Elite

Description of business

We scout and cover basketball at all levels, from grassroots to the pros. We also organize elite showcases and work with a few NBA players on elite camps.

Organization industry



We are looking for our great 'urban' style basketball design. We want something that really fits our customer's taste and style - see the Nike Basketball links for inspiration:…Id=3356438

Most of our customers like hip-hop and the gritty urban style, so this should work to evoke that.

This shirt will be 1-2 colors, most likely on a red, black or maroon shirt (although a white shirt that really 'pops' could work) and incorporate the slogan "Rise and Grind" ( or "Rise & Grind" and should incorporate a streetball feel, more than likely a stylized basketball, but we're open to styles which will work. This should be a design that might be worn by NBA players, college players or elite high school players.
