The page with all of the submissions is pretty interesting. 

There are some good ideas in there, I think.

MJ was pretty good at listening to the fans so, I hope he realizes if he ditches the old colors most of the fans would flip out.

Hello All

 

I'm a designer out of Northern VA, here is a concept I have come up with and in time will present to the Hornets/Bobcats organization before the rebrand. Help get the word out if you are a fan and hopefully I can get the job to brand your NBA team!

 

The current secondary Bobcats' logo with the bobcat head and basketball is a nice logo, so carrying part of that over for the secondary here for a smooth transition.

 

Check out the rest of my work in my portfolio: http://ianbakar.com

Your designs are very interesting

I think one thing you will quickly learn is that a lot of people will have a problem with the light blue because many believe it symbolizes UNC. Remember; Duke, NCSU, and Wake Forest fans are also in the market.

It also seems that the teams is trying to make purple the primary color judging from there splash page on their website and the merchandise that they have been giving away.

The design itself is cool and definitely brings something new to the table. The only thing is post people are wanting the original purple and teal.

The logo is pretty interesting, it's much more fierce then the original and it seems like a lot of teams are trying to make their logo "more fierce." That was one underlying reason the Panthers updated their logo.

If you altered the colors, I guarantee you that people would get behind your design and lobby for it to be the next Hornets design.

Good luck.

I like everything but a few colors. This would match the Panthers logo very well.

I like the design, but it needs some pinstripes.

I agree that design is sorely missing pinstripes. Without Purple, Teal, and Pinstripes they are just the B**cats with a new name on their chest.

Im a Tar Heel fan and I understand people dont like the color light blue, but people need to grow up. 

 

If the Hornets were duke blue, or wake black/gold, or State red - I wouldnt care.  Its just a color, and quite frankly, I have a ton of ABC fans and they pick at me saying UNC light blue is a girl color, but at the end of the day, they all admit thats what one of the things the state of NC is known for - CAROLINA blue.

I'm a unc fan but Carolina blue would be dumb. For me it's not anything about the color Bc of unc or college teams around the area. But the hornets are teal and purple. If u bring it back and just make it the colors u have now then it's a waste for most fans. If that's the case just stuck with the name and logo we have.
