    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.

    I am sick and tired of the NBA allowing so many teams to feature blue and gold/yellow.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    It actually kind of looks more like a bat then a pelican looking at its body....here's hoping this isn't the choice.

    And I don't see the problem in letting amateurs design them. Yes, some of them might be a bit busy, but I like the cartoonish look of the pelican compared to the rumored logo.

    Logos are supposed to be simple, simple enough that people can doodle them in a second. They aren't supposed to be complicated minor league clipart.

    At least they're actually blue and gold. We should stop pretending we're gold when we're yellow.

    Although, actually, that might be a nice change for us to make; replace our yellow with the above kind of gold to give our colors and logo a refresh.

    I agree and with the material being used, a real gold would look sick!

    I like the new logo and colors. I also like them pushing NOLA. Pretty cool stuff and well put together. I'm happy for them and the fans.

    Good Job Mr. Benson

    There was a time a reference like this would be so obvious that it would be lame. But with the generation that aren't the fans that the 35-55 age group is it's back to being awesome.

    And it fit so perfectly too. Freaking loved it.




    I like those 99 designs, especially the first one. I also liked the amateur "cartoon" pelican that someone had posted. It would work more as an alternate logo.
    But this actual new one? Put me in the "I hate it" camp.

    However I freaking love the name.

    In true New Orleanas fashion, they have a "Bird-de-Lis" logo, which, naturally, is awesome.

    I think the Pelican emblem by itself is alright, if not a little dark and overly serious (it reminds me of a military emblem). On the other hand, I think the full logo looks great and very stylish.

    I kinda like it. It's simple. Some of the other stuff just looked like they were trying to hard. Cool graphics, but not something you'd want to have to reproduce on all that marketing gear.

    Personally I feel like, by using the 'Pelican' name, they've already made the commitment to market based on community rather than acting tough. Like the Pacers or the original Lakers. The logo then doesn't need to super flashy. It should just be something that people can easily become familiar with. If a 14-year old kid can't make a fairly accurate doodle of your logo during Social Studies, then you have done too much.

    Pelicans might be an homage to the baseball team that was once in New Orleans.

    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.

    You know how some people (mainly lonely women) can't get enough of silly cat pictures and videos? I'm the same way, except with pelican videos of them engaging in general dickery. These birds are hilarious. I love that nickname. Absolutely love it. Can't wait for the mascot.
