Los Angeles Clippers Concept Logo History By Addison Foote

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.

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.
