The Clippers logo has always looked too similar to the Lakers logo, so I was glad they did a redesign of it. However, their new logo didn't really give any meaning to their team name. I took a more nautical approach by mixing the helm of a clipper ship and a basketball. The helm represents direction and control. I made the type wave as if it is sailing on the sea.

Recently, what are purported to be the new LA Clippers logos have leaked all over the internet, and possibly gone into trademark. The design world and fans have both had overwhelmingly negative reactions. From looking like an EA sports game cover to clip art, the reception has not been what a professional sports team would ever want.

The Clippers logo history didn’t help much here, and it’s probably best for them to have a clean slate anyway. I decided to stick with a nautical theme without resorting to using a ship. The anchor idea was inspired by some of Jon Contino’s work. The rope lettering was difficult to get right, but I think it looks too generic without it.
