Do you like to create iconic sports logos?
Check out natewashburn's Logo design contest…
We are looking for a new logo that can tie in closely with the existing brand of the Sacramento Kings NBA franchise. We are a sports blog run by fans of the basketball team and want our brand to look like it could have been an alternate concept by the original logo designers, but still standout as its own brand.
Other color requirements
Only use these colors in your design. Not all colors are required, but design should also be "functional" as a single color if needed. #5b2b82 (purple) #63717a (granite) #06192b (black) #ffffff (white)
The name of our brand is “SacKings”. The name can be either integrated into the design or reside outside of the logo itself to included/excluded as needed. Please note the capitalization of the “S’ and “K” to emphasize the two words in the name. Other methods for distinguishing the two words will be accepted as well. Desired look and feel: - Smooth, yet bold curves and lines - Timeless modern look, almost industrial in nature - Match the attitude of the official team logos, but with an edgy tone? Looks to avoid: - No busy or ornamental designs - Not a cartoon or hand drawn look - Not a cliche in-your-face sports logo Some elements or concepts of the official team logos may be incorporated, but not an outright copy of the overall design idea. Try looking at one element from an abstract viewpoint and create your own original art to complement it. Please DO NOT go down the path of some sort of version of a crown on top of a basketball. A look that stands out and would compel someone to proudly wear it on a sweatshirt or hat. A logo that offers more than just words on a t-shirt Please familiarize yourself with the background on the team and design thought process that went into the new brand we want our new design based around.

We have also included some designs from competitor blogs to show what others have created. Update: A concept we have been exploring of late is that of a crest or shield featuring the lion, player silhouette, basketball, or other abstract element of the official logo designs. The trick would be how to subtly associate it with basketball rather than soccer. The crest shape could be something like this: https://1000logos.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/AFC-Bournemouth-Logo.png. However, we would also like to see other shapes and how they would fit into your design idea. If you have any specific questions, do not hesitate to reach out to us.
