Playing around with the Pirates logo


Darth Brooks

Recommended Posts

I was doing something else and ran into a page with the Pirates logos though the years. I saw that when they did the retro thing in 1987 they used a fairly weak drawing from the 20's instead of the nasty looking fellow from 1934.

So this is the 1934 head, the 1987 square and the modern wordmark. I thought it looked cook and wanted to share.

What do you think?

It looks a tad bit to detailed and the gradient could use some work, maybe even removing it good make it a lot less clustered

I would have to agree, it looks more like a 90's beer bottle than a 2017 sports logo

Yeah. I think the one from 1958 is the most "welcoming," or "kid-friendly."

Maybe the problem isn't the cream but that the pirate is too colorful. Try making the pirate's color scheme closer to the 1987 version (black coat, red shawl, black hat, etc.) and maybe make the "Pirates" wordmark solid yellow with a black outline.
