Once again we have some more news from “the inside”. This has been told to us by a couple people very close to the rebranding process.
They said that at this point in the process a logo has not been chosen yet but they do have 8 potentials for the Hornets. The majority of these and the most popular ones are sticking to original Hugo look but with a little bit more aggressive twist, a more muscular Hugo with “angrier” eyes and expression. Which is refreshing considering the complete “sissification” that happened to the Hornets brand in New Orleans. They realize the value of the brand loyalty and recognition and don’t want to ruin that.
Some logos are completely different but are not getting as strong support as those similar to the original Hugo.
To answer the question that has been bothering so many people. Pete Guelli also said that they have not finalized a color scheme but for the time being are using the Carolina Blue for legal reason not yet fixed with the league.
Now our source has stated that most of the design proposals are sticking with the TEAL & PURPLE as the main colors and may use the Carolina Blue for small “details”. This will give them ability to make more apparel designs.
Again this is all hearsay. Take all this with a grain of salt.
STAY TUNED! We will bring you the BUZZ as soon as we hear
I have faith in the organization that they'll do the right thing regarding logo and colors...really excited to see what they come up with after all the "Buzz City" stuff...which I think is really cool.
