New Orleans Crawfish

I created this really quick concept for the 2008 All-Star Game logo thread, but thought it might be fun to develop here.

This is based on the alternate logos for the All-Star Game. In my fantasy world, they would drop the name Hornets (or sell it back to Charlotte, if their owner was interested in setting aside his ego), and adopt a more local moniker:

Initial thoughts?

Love the logos! I especially like the fleur d' les (I know I misspelled it)... The rendering of the Craw Fish looks good, however, it isn't terribly imposing. Though, I am 200 times more scared of the Crawfish than I am of the Washington Wizard!

Great concept!

I agree that the animal be a bit more mean looking but if I may suggest (and I may be wrong here) but most in louisiana call them "Crawdads"

Also, great use of the Cincinnati Reds font(for the numbers), It looks good anywhere!

Aw, you caught me! :blush:

I used the Reds font for the wordmark as well.

The teal on the inside happened to be part of the pattern on the template - I might just remove it altogether.

The comparison to the Raptors' logo came up on the other thread. I agree that they are similar, but think this is a much better logo. I'll repeat here what I said there:

  1. the scale on this one makes more sense (you'd think a dinosaur would be bigger than a basketball; and
  2. the crawfish is demonstrating good ball control, looking for the open man. The Raptor looks like he's trying not to fall off.

Thanks for the C&C, guys.

the fleur de lis is so very close to being a crawfish shape. what if you flipped the two downward pointing arms and pointed them upwards, like crawfish arms?

And I'm from Louisiana and we call them crawfish 90% of the time.

Great idea and execution.

Crawdads?!?! Sorry, but I've lived here all my life and NEVER has anyone that I know EVER referred to them as "Crawdads". It's Crawfish. Every now and then you my here a "mudbug" thrown in there.

No, we don't.

...and it's amusing to see the Louisiana contingent of the CCSLC coming out of the woodwork to tell you how wrong you are. :P

BTW, slick concept Gothamite.
