Brian in Boston Posted December 12, 2012 Share Posted December 12, 2012 ONE OF THEM IS A :censored:ING RIP OFF. A simple google of "silverback logo" will bring this up.A Google search also reveals that said mark was a stock logo sold by graphic designer Greg Grigoriou through the LogoTurn.com website. Meaning that it is possible that the Atlanta Silverbacks organization was the customer that purchased said mark from Mr. Grigoriou.That said, one has to wonder why slight - and, to my eye, unnecessary - modifications were made to Mr. Grigoriou's original logo? Perhaps said alterations were made by Grigourio at the request of the Silverbacks? After all, Grigourio's listing for the mark on LogoTurn.com did offer-up "[c]ustomization" of the design prior to purchase. Perhaps they were made by the Silverbacks' professional design partners after the original logo was purchased from Grigourio? Or, perhaps Grigourio's original stock logo was shamelessly lifted from the LogoTurn.com website and passed-off as original work?In any event, if it turns out that said depiction of a silverback gorilla was legally obtained from Mr. Grigourio by the Atlanta Silverbacks, than the logo containing it would be my pick from amongst these four candidates. It has something of an early-to-mid-1970s European football club vibe about it that I quite like. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
