Minnesota Muskies Logo: Wolves D-League Team

Recommended Posts

Minnesota is one of a number of NBA teams without direct D-League affiliation. If they choose to start a team for DA I think they should adopt the ABA Muskies name. Not sure where they'd play, but they could just be the Minnesota Muskies again. I created a version for four different but similar color schemes. The classic wolves (Royal, Green, Silver), The current (Black, Green, Blue, Silver), the combo (Blue, Green, Silver) and the classic muskies (Royal, Gold, Green). Let me know what you think.

You need the gold from the original Muskies IMO.

But this a beautiful start!

Dig it. I like the one with black most just because of the palette contrast.

Yeah I like the contrast of that one, but I'd like to see the Wolves franchise move away from black and back to the blue and green. Although, adding more green back in would help too. The bottom left (combo scheme) is starting to stand out to me.

I like the combination of blue, green and gold.

Couldn't they play at Xcel Energy Center or would that place be too big?

I would suggest getting rid of all the gaps between the letters and just filling in the area between each letter solid blue. As it is now, it's not clear what is going on with the fish behind those letters and solid blue fill would make it cleaner. You could also bring the tail fins down lower so they are clearly visible beneath the word mark. Other than that, there's a lot to like about this and I like the way you stylized the blue lines on the fins.

The Minneapolis Armory (one-time-home of the Minneapolis Lakers) is gonna be renovated soon...perhaps the Wolves would look at a D-League team as a tenant of that spot.

Either way, THIS IS AWESOME!

I really like all of your work but I think this is probably the cleanest I have seen from you just a great rendering. I would though continue working on the letters right now I do not like it with the all blue behind it.

The combo is my favorite(a.k.a bottom left) I like the contrast, and the scheme is my fav.

They could play in the other Twin City, St. Paul but Xcel Energy Arena might be too large for D-League. So possibly Amsoil Arena in Duluth or Taylor Arena in Rochester. Like the idea you have going. You should do other concepts for non-affiliated NBA teams.

Solid logo, but the NBA (and D League) are pretty partial to basketball-specific branding (even more than most other major sports leagues).

True. Unless your the Canton Charge, Austin Spurs, Reno Bighorns, Santa Cruz Warriors, or Texas Legends. :)

Like I said...partial to, so not every team, but a statistically higher percentage than many MiLB leagues (depends on if we count a ball cap as constituting baseball-specific) and all the football & hockey Independant/Dev leagues.

Without the wordmark, I favor the upper left more.
