Platypus logo concept

Recommended Posts

Here's a logo concept for a Platypus fantasy team, maybe Portland to bring together the Oregon and Oregon State fans.

Portland Platypodes? Or Platypoda.... ? Definitely not Platypi or Platypusses...maybe just Portland Platypus (like "fish" or "moose")???

Where will the wordmark be? tilted to make a rectangle? If cleaned up I could dig it.

The name would be Portland Platypus, kinda like how Manitoba used to have the Moose up until this past summer.

The wordmark would be under the main logo.

Funny that no Australian team in any major sport have the Platypus identity, its one of my favourite ornithorhynchus's :hockeysmiley:

I think the platypus should be moving in an upward direction. Also, I realize this is a rough sketch, but the neck seems off. It would be useful to show how the head connects to the body with more detail. I love the idea, and I'm interested to see how it progresses.

IMO I think the team name should be the Portland Perrys. I mean its not the first time a team in "Oregon" has been challenged because of a team mascot and logo. Just to justify: The other day I was browsing online and stumbled across a story about Walt Disney having something to do with the Univ. of Oregon's mascot; Puddles.

I can appreciate the creativity of creating a unique logo like that, but it looks like a turd with legs. I would put a little more definition between the tail and the body, instead of making it one big oblong body (which it isn't in real life). The idea of bringing them to Portland (as a combination between a duck and a beaver) is brilliant however.

There needs to be a definite break between the body and tail. I totally agree. And I don't think platypus tails are pointy like that, are they?

This should help.

That is brilliant. I honestly laughed out loud when I read it.

I wouldn't have called this a logo concept. It's a sketch. The tail issue has been pointed out, but aside from that, I think it would be difficult to have a logo going diagonally down as a good logo.

the straight angle might be awkward to work with maybe try curling him more so that you could incorporate it into putting a P with it. This was my thought when I thought about putting together some sort of logo with this animal. lookin forward to seeing yours develop! good luck. What color scheme are you goin with?

- Teal, Lime Green and Silver

- Red, Green and Gold

No matter what, the platypus has to be brown. Anything else would just look weird.

That's the perfect color scheme for a platyous team.

Why wouldn't something like maroon, that is pretty close to brown, or even navy or a dark green work?
