Tara and Jo are joined by Evan McCarthy, the artist and graphics and clothing designer behind Evanem.com, to talk all about the new Trail Blazers’ uniforms and remember uniforms of the past.

There are many nuances to the team’s new designs — Evan gets us up to speed on fonts, strokes, drop shadows, and some of the finer details that make the Trail Blazers uniforms some of the most unique in the NBA.

Our favorites are the white Rip City sleeveless jerseys and the 2012 Red alternates. Which are your favorites?

Things to look at while you listen

Evan has a special connection to the Trail Blazers, as an artist who has created commissioned work for the Blazer’s front office and the designer behind such popular designs as the “D.A.M.E. to keep coming up clutch” and “Digital Dame” t-shirts.
