Team Colors

TeamColors screenshot

Team Colors is a reference of HEX, RGB, CMYK, and Pantone color values of major league sports teams.

How-To

Install: yarn install Development: yarn start Build: yarn build

How It Works

Site is built on the react framework. index.html is the shell container for react app. If javascript is not supported, a link is shown to the raw JSON data which has all color information.

Color data is housed in a single .json file src/teams.json. Any changes to team colors can be done there. Note on colors: Color definitions for each team are in arrays and grouped by color mode. Color values should match index position in the array across color modes, for example:

colors:
  rgb: TEAMS-RGB-BLUE, TEAMS-RGB-RED
  hex: TEAMS-HEX-BLUE, TEAMS-HEX-RED

Source artwork for each team is grouped by league in sketch. Production versions of these logo should be in .svg format in public/img.

Edit Team Color or Name

Find teams .json file in src/teams.json, and edit the info you need.

Add a Team

  1. Determine the team’s league
  2. Following the established pattern, add the team’s name and colors the .json file
  3. Add a vector logo for the team in its corresponding .sketch league file in sketch with the team’s name (as referenced in its .json file) in lowercase with hyphens, i.e. "utah-jazz"
  4. Export the team’s .svg logo to public/img/
  5. Preferably, optimize the svg (with a tool like SVGO)
  6. Run yarn build, commit, push

Official Color References

NBA

All NBA colors are official (source user & pass: nbamedia).

The NBA only provides RGB, CMYK, and Pantone colors for each team, so the HEX color is a programmatic conversion of the RGB color.

NFL

All NFL colors are official (see sources below).

The NFL provides official RGB, HEX, CMYK, and Pantone colors (so none of the colors you see on Team Colors are conversions).

The NFL has logo slicks which detail team color values. These are provided on a per-conference basis. Note: each of these source links are over 100MB in size, so they take a while to download.

MLB

MLB colors have been extracted from the official “RGB Digital Art” spot color logo slicks provided at MLB Press Box (user account required). They were not explicitly stated values, but they are color values pulled from individual team logos in an official MLB document.

The extracted colors are in HEX form and their RGB counterparts are generated programmatically.

NHL

NHL colors are official. As per Michael Sharer of the NHL.

MLS

MLS colors are currently approximations, with the exceptions listed below. I am working on getting official colors of the remaining teams.

EPL

These leagues’ teams and colors are currently approximations. I am working on getting official colors. If you know how/where to find them, please open an issue here in Github.

To-Dos

  • Switch to flex for layout
  • Improve filtering with fuzzy string search
  • Improve error states for when data doesn't render
  • Consider alternatives to no-js users rather than just "here's the raw data" (something that doesn't required a build if a single color in the JSON file is changed)
  • Possibly add team id manually to JSON file ??
You can’t perform that action at this time.
