Houston Astros Logo Concept

Recommended Posts

Recently, while working on a different, abandoned idea, I developed the framework for a logo that I felt had some legs as an Astros concept. I've never really been a huge fan of the Astros logos in the past, and figured this had a little bit more character than the current H-Star.

 

The explanation here will be very straightforward. The basic idea was to combine the letter A and a star into the same shape. The "gut" of the star, where the A is formed also forms the pentagon shape that represents home plate, an underused, but certainly recognizable feature of baseball. Like I said, pretty simple and straightforward. (I do realize there are some that find a logo with the mascot initial instead of the location initial sacrilege, but I really ain't one of them, so tough luck there.)

I really like it! Is there any way we could see wordmarks, secondary logos, uniforms, things like that?

Very Allen Americans feel to it.

 

Other than that it looks good.

i saw the same exact thing (living near an ECHL franchise does this to ya)

 

Well done though. I prefer their current stuff cuz it just looks that good. But this beats all of their other tries at being COOL

I could see an Astros farm club actually using this.  Nice work!
