Jazz secondary logo confusion

Recommended Posts

I noticed this today on the Jazz's official website

jazzlogos.jpg

The logo from NBA.com more closely resembles the original logo in design, i.e. it has the slash coming off to the right of the tail & the middle 2 pieces of the ball are connected rather than separate. However, the coloring is all over the place. The one from CCSL matches as far as which pieces are colored similarly & I also think it looks better. Any clarification on which logo is their official secondary?

That is weird. But that just reminds me how much I miss the J-note logo. They gotta get rid of the mountains...

The one on this site is hot off the official NBA Media Guide for the 2009 season. The Jazz one is more than likely just someone on their creative services team that just happened to put that on there.

The slash coming off the NBA.com one looks really off, so I'm going to say it's just something they slapped together for the site.

Seems that someone needed a light blue version of the logo for the special playoff page and re-colored as such.

But if you go to their regular page, you see this graphic with the full word mark. The main color is light blue, but they've simply swapped it with the navy. Because it's the full wordmark, that extra slash is there.

I saw TNT used the Jazz note during Inside the NBA

They should start from scratch. Get rid of the recolored remnants of the '96 redesign, get rid of the J-note from the '70s, and start alllll over.

I agree. I wouldn't mind a return to the old logo though.

While I totally agree, I must say that the current recolorization is worlds better than the '96 stuff. Fading white to purple on a jersey? Copper, teal, black, purple, blue? Gradients?

Delux247 recolored that to just show us -- its a lot neater on the site?

I think maybe the Jazz are using both because the one delux posted is on the site a few times

While as a whole the '96 redesign got really old really quick, I did like the copper stripes (helping to represent southern Utah, if you ask me) on the alternates (the black alts themselves were a letdown) and the mountains on the shorts. I wouldn't want that look to make a full comeback, but Utah's current look could use a little perking up, though it's more "blah" than "blech" to me.

Maybe if they can integrate a mountain outline (no gradients or coloring) onto the shorts between the stripes, then that might work. I know my brother would hate it, but maybe go back to a purple/light blue look. Or make the purple an indigo, a blue-violet of sorts, something that, when paired with light blue, comes off as a dark blue and more of a purple when seen by itself.

Another idea I've had is to go with a redesign along the lines of what Adrian Dantley wore, becoming a primarily green/gold team (since the only team in the league to wear green/gold is currently gone) maybe with some trim of purple/blue/indigo or copper/burnt orange. They could use the old note logo or do something new. While I'm a bit dissapointed that they merely recolored the logo from 1996-2004 when they went to their current set, the current, recolored logo looks much better than the original. What do you guys think?

Yay for the 70s' j-note!

Funny how that still looks relevant while the 1996 redo is about as dated as Zubaz pants. Simplicity of design always wins out over some logo trying to do way too much and go overboard with the imagery and font goofiness.
