ESPN Logo Concept

Recommended Posts

I was sitting reading some posts on here and noticed the ABC logo concept, and I began to think of other TV Brands that could use a refresh, and the first to pop in my head was ESPN. I tried to keep the logo close to the current, while also giving a current flare. The wording under ESPN is Banda Typeface.

*note, ESPN logo is not a type, is circles and lines and the stroke tool :D This isnt a huge project and is just something I whipped up for fun, C&C Welcome.

The E is the signature of ESPN's current brand. You kept it and updated it. I dig it, nice work! The current logo is getting pretty dated, IMO.

wonderful job. You took a logo everyone recognizes and kept the elements that make it iconic while updating it.

You forgot the logo for ESPN 8......the Ocho ;)

its really nice but i think the "N" neems a lttle disconmnected - well litterally actually haha. the other letters are one continuous line. idk how ud fix that, even a lowercase N like in the current logo wouldnt do the trick. The design is great and everything but i keep staring at that N.

Yeah the N is actually the trickiest part, I felt like not doing a lowercase N because I've always stared at the ESPN logo wondering why its lowercase, and I may also disconnect the E as well to make it better for the eyes, and to keep the E separate for uses.

Since TSN and ESPN have matching logos, why not see how it would work for TSN?

I have no clue, I may try that, currently I'm going to place a verison 2 along with an application where you most commonly could find the logo and see how that fares. I think TSN slipped my mind completely.

I like it a lot, but the more I look at it, the more the E reminds me of Fila

I think its mostly from the Rounded points and curves, thanks for pointing that out, may to look at a new type of curve of some sort.

The only issue I have with this is the E, S, and P are all connected, while the N is by itself. I understand their is no fluid or logical way to connect the N. I was thinking that maybe the E, S, P being in red on a white background with the N being white on a red background square. Not sure how it would actually look, but I think it would be better than having the E, S, and P connect and then the N floating outside. The square would isolate it more.

I see your point in this but Tommorow when I finish up the second update to this, that should solve the N problem. It's a bit more symetrical and so on and so forth, but I'll just let the update talk, stay tuned.

I hope you mean that you're disconnecting the E because that's really all you need to do to make this perfect.

Goforbroke and Estone are sharp. the E is lacking and i would blend their suggestions. make the 'N' lower case so it all has a nice horizontal flow AND highlight it with a circle behind it. i say circle, because its mostly made up of rectangles, long and flat, and the contrast of a circle would do wonders for it. make the letters a bit thicker too. remember, legibility at very small scale

It's not bad in and of itself, but it doesn't say "sports" to me. It looks like the sign for a coffee shop or an expensive beverage.

I agree that their current logo is starting to look dated, but I think it has plenty of years left in it. It's just so recognizable, with the bold italics, and just the way it looks at a glance.
