My Vegas All Star 07 logo

Recommended Posts

LOVE the overall design. Very Vega$.

Not crazy about the Macintosh-style lettering for "LAS VEGAS" and "2007". And the smaller white circles are placed eccentrically in the larger blue circles more often than they're not.

It's a good idea, but a little busy for a logo, especially with all the border lights. The alt is pretty nice.

If you don't mind sharing, what fonts were used for Las Vegas and All Star?

Maybe try to make it all one piece. By that I mean thicken the border of the "diamond" and work the "lights" into that, even if only as white circles. Also, maybe increase the size of "all star", and remove the detail from inside the letters. Either solid color or a split may work better.

Now that I think of it, maybe shrink the diamond and las vegas proportionally, so that the A and R of All Star overlaps the edge a bit. That with the thicker border may help clean it up and make it suitable to be used as a patch or something.

u should do somehting such as, saying "welcome to" like what the sign says when you enter las vegas. you would be kewl, if you get what i am saying lol. Overall i think it looks alot better now, it would be kewl if they used something like that, you should try and send it in ( dont know how lol ) cus that be really kewl in the all star game.

I whole heatedly disagree....what this is is taking that sign and using its fame as a reference for an NBA logo and it works perfectly for the lack of a team. My only concern is the coloring in the sign is good but get rid of the yellow square, there is no team as host, but with the yellow and the distance to LA it looks as if the Lakers are the host team.

STOP RIGHT NOW!

This is spectacular. You easily get the reference to the Vegas sign, the lights look right, the wordmarks are proportional. Really nicely done!

Much better. And since if this was used as a logo you wouldn't have the yellow square (maybe it would be reduced to a thin outline for patches / court design) I wouldn't worry about the Lakers tie-in.

Cool stuff, I wouldnt doubt the real one looks close to number 2.

No complaints, or critiques really. Great work.

How come there's no reference to "Game" or "Weekend" in the logo (as in All-Star Game or All-Star Weekend)? I know there's precedent for it (the 05 Denver and 06 Houston logos come to mind), but it's always been something that's bothered me about the NBA's All-Star logos.

Still, it's a very solid design package overall. Best use of the Vegas sign yet...
