    Default More Blue and Gold? | Pelicans Logo Leaked




    And we’d like to make that question mark as big as possible in the headline please.


    According to a poster on TigerDroppings.com, one who had previously posted “insider information” which later turned out to be accurate, the image you see above will be one of the new logos for the New Orleans Pelicans (née Hornets).


    In a later post the user further explains that the primary logo will be the same as the one shown on the cap but with “NEW ORLEANS” across the top in white with a small red fleur-de-lis and “PELICANS” in white with a red background rounded at the bottom.




    A possibly leaked New Orleans Pelicans logo
    This information and the design matches what was eventually reported weeks later that the colour scheme would be blue, gold, and red.


    I really hate to post this without anymore information, but I thought that I’d at least make you aware of it. We have seen hundreds of Pelicans fan concepts over on our message boards and on various online contests but this is the only one claiming to be a leak that we can’t trace back to someone posting their concept. Having said that, if you’ve seen this as a concept anywhere, please point us in that direction so we can correct this story as soon as possible.


    Whatever it is, we’ll find out tomorrow when the New Orleans Hornets are expected to announce their new name and unveil the new logos and uniforms at 4pm ET.

    I don't think it's that bad...kinda like it. Of course, I live amongst a lot of pelicans and kind of fancy them, so I am a little biased.

    It's too similar to the Hawks logo, imo.

    This one is pretty mediocre.

    There were a few by 99designs.com were better, particularly the first one.

    I seem to remember that one to be one of the ones that was on 99 designs.

    That's what I thought too. It looks real familiar.

    Pretty much all of those are better than the rumored one.

    I would disagree, none of those logos are ready for NBA prime time. The 2nd logo is the most polished and could be easily adapted for various scale reproduction (hugely important in logo design, as not all logos scale down nicely....ie the rest of the designs from the logo farm.). However is doesn't have the attitude of an NBA logo. It looks more like a Baseball logo to me. The other logo farm samplings have serious issues.

    1st one does not know what it wants to be. Real identity crisis. Many people think the logo has to include some sort of iconic or even cliche symbolism for the city no matter if it was a Pelican or a Mud Skipper. They'd want to illustrate a horn tooting hat wearing crayfish because its New Orleans. That might look nice, and certainly the illustration is top notch and creative, but. thats not really an effective logo. The Warriors logo is a Bridge, before that it was some sort of ambiguous warrior/powered figure. But in either case it was very focused with what it was, and not muddled with symbolism. Why do you need a musical instrument and hat? Aren't we putting NEW ORLEANS on the damn thing?

    The Last one has a very NBA look to it. However there are several distracting and questionable decisions. The middle C is bent at he bottom, there is just no reason to do that. Just leave it straight, or make the point of the shield fall between the "I" and "C" (I think the preferred solution). "New Orleans".... the choice to use a font where the top serif of the "N" is non existent, such a distraction, Your eye immediately thinks, shouldn't there be a serif here? This doesn't look correct. Which is funny, because there is an alternate version of that font, or another font that is nearly identical, that has all the serifs. Copperplate Gothic? What is that yellow thing just below the beak? A basketball? I can't really tell. The right side of that shield behind the Pelican head is just atrocious. I don't think the designer had really thought that out. But that is type of work you get from these crowd sourced logo farms. Designers who do don't pay attention to detail or practicality of application. But why should they? Its a long shot to get paid for anything.

    Lastly, the leaked logo. While a bit cliche...it is easily scaled for smaller applications. Its is clearly a pelican and not some sort of hybrid homage to everything New Orleans. The symmetry will make it very adaptable . I actually think its the secondary logo that will be on the side of the shorts or something. I'm guessing tomorrow we well see something a bit different for the main mark.

    I wasn't really sure where I stood on the whole subject until I watched this video. The name always sounded kinda funny to me, and the potential to really botch the logo was definitely there. But watch this video and tell me that it wasn't a good choice. I didn't realize just how prevalent pelicans are in NOLA. I mean, our state bird is the cardinal, but no one cares about it here. It's not on our flag or all over our state house.

    Plus, how cool is it the franchise is committed long-term to helping protect and preserve the natural habitat of an endangered species?

    As for the logo, I think I like it, but I've gotta see the uniforms and court before completely deciding.

    Think that looks awful. First off, it doesn't look much like a pelican, and second, it looks sick. The basketball looks like a huge tumor and the eyes look like it's got rabies. At least the old Hornets logo has the fleur-de-lis, which made sense.

    Not bad, but disappointing because of how good some of the "amateur" ones floating around the net are.

    And to think it people get paid big bucks for this. Reminds me of the Jim Gaffigan "Hot pocket" jingle joke.

    I thought the blue was going to be their tertiary color. I was really hoping they would focus on red and gold.

    It just shows that some industries it's not always the guy with the high paying job who is necessarily the best at it. If I owned a sports team now, I think I would let people vote for my logo/colors along with the team name. And I would let the logo be user submitted, winner gets paid X.

    That would be a stupid idea. The general public is rather stupid.
    A good designer adds value to the brand. They dont just make pretty pictures. Half of those logo you liked were nothing more than pretty illustrations trying to be a logo.

    Seems I touched a nerve. Encouraging creativity from the public is great. If you want to have a professional designer oversee the selection of 5 logos for the public to then vote on, then great, heck that designer can even submit his own!

    Myself and lots of other folks, clearly, liked a lot of the "amateur" designs we saw on the internet. Isn't that the whole point of building a brand? Knowing your target audience?

    Seriously? The hot pocket joke is hilarous but the jingle is actually quite effective. It seeped into our culture so much that a comedian made a career off it. Im pretty sure hot pockets got their money's worth.
