Brooklyn Nets Concept Logo
Brooklyn Nets Concept Logo By Addison Foote

I drew inspiration from their current logo and their older logos from when they were in New Jersey to create this. However, I always found it strange that the franchise has had 7 different logos in their history and none of them has had a net incorporated into the design! I a put a net into my version and kept the triangular shield along with a nice flowing typeface that represents the movement the net makes when the ball goes through it.

This team has a lot of history and some cool ABA roots, so I wanted to keep some of that in the new logo. The color scheme and the loop that is suggested by the 2 ends of the N are inspired by their old New York Nets logo. The modern typography on “Brooklyn” and the simplified rim come from the new logo.
I had a hard time representing Brooklyn itself with this logo. The Brooklyn Bridge seemed like an obvious choice, but I think 1 bridge-related logo (the Golden State Warriors) in the league is enough. I didn’t want to go over top like this fake hipster-themed logo, but I wanted something. As I was working on this I realized the whole thing kind of looks like a planet with rings. “The Planet” is coincidentally a nickname for Brooklyn, as Mos Def taught me, due to its large diversity, population, and size. I also drew inspiration from the logo for design studio Mighty, which is located in, you guessed it, Brooklyn NY.
