Golden State Warriors

Recommended Posts

Alright, well I've been browsing the site and a lot of NBA teams are due for an update. The Warriors have been long overdue for one, the whole muscular man and thunder identity doesn't work. The way I see it, the team has three options:

1. Native American Warrior including arrows, headgear, faces and other aboriginal items.

2. California and basketball image, going back to the classic simple ball and state logo.

3. Using the Bay Area elements.

I decided to go with the Bay Area elements because their Golden Gate bridge logo is iconic and I wanted to bring back an updated version. I decided to ditch the navy, orange, light blue and yellow and return to the classic blue and gold. The logo is mainly inspired from their classic set and the 2000 NBA All-Star game. Is this logo well rendered? No, I'm getting there, but it's an idea.

The uniforms are modern with hints from the past. I'll let you guys try to associate.

CC always well appreciated.

Thanks

I really like the uniform design, but it's bugging me because the unis don't feature the orange color in the logo. I also like that color scheme, but right know in the Western Conference, there's just too many teams using the same (or close to it) colors. You have the Nuggets, Mavs, Hornets, Jazz, with all similar color schemes.

The unis are really good, though, especially the throwback.

I'm glad you guys like the jerseys. I thought that because the Warriors have almost always used some variation of blue and gold they'd have the right to use it. Here's a more unique color scheme: Navy and Orange. I don't like the overwhelming amount of blue in the league, but the Warriors are a blue team, other teams will need to sacrifice their blue IMO.

Woah, those updated ones are stunning. Good choice with a darker orange, enough contrast with the blue, and enough to hold its own as an alternate. Really like the script and the primary. But for some reason, I find the W in the secondary logo out of place.

Thanks, that W is kind of out of place. My intention for that logo was so that it's different than the classic, but as you see it's not used on the uniform. The uniforms use either the W or the classic logo. If you look at the W closely it has 2 arrow heads which slightly refers to the Warrior identity.

Can someone suggest how to improve the primary, because I'm not happy with the way it looks now. I think the bridge should be larger, thoughts?

Gotcha, makes sense now. I wish there was a way to emphasize that without being too busy or tacky though. As for the bridge, I'd make the cables match the secondary logo's bridge and give it more perspective over the script. It's a little flat right now with the angle you chose. Also, I'd get ride of the extra outlines of the basketball. I don't think they're necessary.

Well, this is a logo concept that I've been playing around with for nearly a year. I wasn't sure it was worth the effort until OKC debuted their mascot. This logo is a way to branch the IDEA of "thunder" with a real object. I used mostly APS and MS paint. Its a rough start (im not that good with APS or Illustrator yet) and any help offered would be appreciated. The Black-Grey-White color scheme is only temporary, I plan to try OKC's scheme and a Black-Grey-Vegas or Yellow scheme like the one that elliot came up with. The logo simply depicts a thunderhead with a bison form coming from it.

I agree with your idea and have done a similar version myself. I will post it soon on here if you want to compare.

I love the primary logo, alternate, and the uniforms. The colors look good too. The one thing I would suggest would be to add a white outline somewhere around the alternate logo to balance the white in the W.

Either the top left or the bottom right logo would work great as a primary. You might want to think about somehow incorporating "Golden State" somewhere in the logo you choose as the primary though.

Switched back to Gold and Navy with a hint of orange. The alternate uniform has added white to contrast the blue and gold, although I originally added the white for the orange jersey, but left it on for the gold. A few new alternate and special application logos as well. Better?
