Logo Concept


HarperK

Recommended Posts

I think its nicely rendered. That said you may as well go with something as pointless as "the city" and a friggin trolley....oh crap. This identity crisis is hopeless, which isnt your fault, but this isnt the solution either. It seems like a reversal to the same old lost theme.

PLUS thats the golden gate bridge...the warriors are in Oakland...new bay bridge logo!?! j/k

I'd love to see 'em go to these uniforms...

But that probably isn't going to happen, so a return to blue and gold would be welcome. The logo is SF, though, and they're in Oakland now. If you made the semi-circle into a full circle and made it a basketball, it'd be sweet!

That is true but who said it isnt the SF-Oak Bay bridge? Looks the same as a silhouette:)

Im not sure i share your opinion. The old identity was classic and unique, but simple as well. It had "flavor":) I just tried to capture that in what i designed

Why are they the Warriors if you dont some how acknowledge it? They are Golden State Basketball, basically.

I think you need to lose the California and star. The bridge already represents where they are. The california just kind of clogs it up.

Agreed. Although it may be valuable as a secondary logo, especially since it has a history with the team.

Well the "warrior" they use now is just cheesy imo, and the old one wouldn't fly these days. So i think its more than acceptable to use aspects of the era that emphasized the location more than the nickname. But still when you think of the team you think "Warriors" before "Golden State". Its more of identifying with the organization and less with the teams mascot, if that makes sense.

Tried to make a slight modernization of the blue-n-yellow era. I will be doing jerseys soon...

My suggestion is that if you are trying to modernize an older logo, it should be more modern. You may have stayed too traditional. My first suggestion would be the font. A modern font may be enough. This current font isn't very interesting and for some reason doesn't look symmetrical.

And I definetly see the need to play down the warrior non-pc term in a liberal hot bed of the country, so how about working the classic basketball in the logo then? If not, there isn't much to know what sport this even is.

I agree with the idea of adding a basketball somewhere, and I am not all that crazy about the wordmark font (just doesn't seem like something you'd see on a pro jersey IMO). But while I know what you're saying, I don't quite buy the political incorrectness of the term "warrior" on its face.

Every culture that I can think of has had warriors among its people. If you're worried that people will be up in arms if they reverted back to the dribbling Indian they had decades ago, that's fine. But I am not sure that a generic warrior would be offensive, and if done right, you could surely use a warrior from almost any culture. Get input from the people you're using as a model, and keep it from being cartoonish and offensive, and you could be fine.

I think it'd be cool if you could somehow keep this as a basis; add the basketball lines in the hemisphere, keep the bridge, and maybe work in a simplified warrior similar to how it looks on the current logo...

Too cluttered, perhaps? Well, if done right...

I like where you going though...

Yea, because if we don't use native american charicatures as logos, then the terrorists win!!!
