tbttodd got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Basketball Logo for Zip 'Em Up - Your Winning Logo Featured on Major Sports Network
Check out tbttodd's Logo design contest…
The Basketball Tournament is a yearly event where 64 basketball teams (made up of ex-NBA players & NBA hopefuls) compete for a $1 Million winner-take-all prize. Games are broadcast on ESPN and streamed online. Each team needs their own name and logo, which they use not only for their uniforms, but for merchandise, fundraising, and driving a strong team following. This year 99designs by Vistaprint is the official design partner for TBT, and helping new teams generate logos for the first time, or existing teams re-think their logos. For this contest, We [Zip ‘Em Up] are looking for a new logo. Heads-up, we plan to launch multiple Gold logo contests for different basketball teams in the next few weeks. Here is another contest we have open at the moment: https://99designs.com/logo-design/contests/basketball-logo-ultimate-warriors-winning-featured-major-sports-1087520/entries
I also attached the logo we have been using so far, which was actually fan-created. It shows the visual elements we are looking for, but we're ready for something different. As we are an Xavier University alumni team, our brand is going to be about toughness. We were thinking dark blues, black, some white and dark grey for a possible crossing sword element, showing that we’re a Xavier alumni team, and forming an X with swords, as their nickname is the musketeers. We were also interested in incorporating a zipper going up, as part of our brand. We were thinking a combination logo would be best for us, since we have graphic and text elements that we’d like on our logo. But we are also open to suggestions and input, as the graphic professionals may find that a certain aspect works better than what we suggested. I will also attach the logos we were working on before we found out we were going to launch this contest instead. We prefer the zipper going up, as opposed to the border, but we were still in a rough draft stage and trying to figure out how to tie it all together. We also thought crossing swords in the shape of an X would be a good ode to Xavier. Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing what you put together! We are open to all ideas.
