Just an FYI, while we will take the poll results into account when selecting a winner, the winner of the poll will not necessarily win the contest.
Please vote fairly and vote only ONCE. If we find that the poll is being rigged, we will disregard the results and choose a winner on our own.
Thanks everyone!

Hello designers!!

Thank you all for your submissions. I had a lot of fun running this contest and I hope you all did as well. It was hard narrowing it down to the top 8 designs since we have gotten so many good ones. Again, thank you all for participating and here is your top 8 for this contest: http://bit.ly/VoteHornetsLogo

Take your votes and the front runners will be featured in our blog post for this coming week!

The contest is coming to an end guys! Thanks for the awesome submissions. Do not forget to submit your entries to get some feedback! Some things to keep in mind:

-Do not stray away from the team colors provided on the brief. I also provided the color values on the comments section.

-Try to modify your fonts to your own. Think of a way to modify a font for it to look very hornet-like (does that make sense?)

-Feel free to submit alternative logos or mockups of how their basketball court/jerseys/warmups would look like!

so no one did an air Jordan logo with the hornet?

You can't really use that logo for this one. Sure, MJ is the owner, but thats his trademark. The Hornets is not associated with the Jordan brand.

Hey guys!

Great hornet designs so far. Again, I'd like to thank you all for submitting.

I'd like some of you guys to try another concept rather than a Hornet. Like many NBA logos, alternate logos are a thing. Take a look at this sample of the New Orleans Pelicans:

http://www.nba.com/pelicans/new-orl…s-unveiled

If you go to their LOGO section, you'll see they have alternatives. I'd like to see some of these for the Charlotte Hornets. So it doesn't necessarily have to strictly be a hornet. Maybe just a queens crown with the name or something. Use your imagination!

Thanks again everyone.

Hey guys,

Great entries so far and I'm loving all these hornets!!

Like I said, we have stuff from the brief that could work well with this contest. Charlotte's nickname is "queen city" so maybe some type of implementation on the design to show that? It is also nicknamed the "hornets nest". I'd love to see implementations of those things rather than just seeing all hornets. Give it a shot!

We have samples of how NBA logos currently look on the brief. We also have an image of the previous Charlotte Hornet logo they have.

Hey everyone!

Great work so far! Keep in mind when submitting, make sure the colors match the ones we provided on the brief!

Also, make sure you guys read the brief before submitting! There are a lot of interesting things about Charlotte that you guys could be implementing on this design. Keep up the good work. Will try to give feedback during this weekend.
