Sun Alternate Logo
The Connecticut Sun is one of the most successful teams in the WNBA, and its logo has been a part of that success. The team's alternate logo history dates back to 2003 when it was first introduced. Since then, there have been several iterations of this iconic design that have helped define what it means to be a fan of the Connecticut Sun.
The original alternate logo was designed by artist Kevin Kallaugher and featured an orange sun with yellow rays emanating from its center surrounded by blue lettering spelling out “Connecticut” and “Sun” on either side. This classic look became synonymous with the franchise as they made their way into postseason play during those early years in existence.
In 2010, after seven seasons wearing this initial design, the team unveiled a new look for its alternate logos which featured two separate designs: one featuring an orange basketball outlined against white stars set against another background containing various shades of blue; while another contained just three stars arranged horizontally along with lettering spelling out “Connecticut Sun Basketball Club". Both versions were modernized takes on previous designs but still retained some elements from earlier iterations such as using star imagery to represent each player within the organization or using colors associated with both Connecticut state flags (blue-white-orange).
As time went on further changes were made including introducing additional color variations like green or purple for special occasions; adding more detailed illustrations like players dribbling basketballs around sun rays or shooting hoops through them; even incorporating subtle nods towards local landmarks like lighthouses into certain depictions! All these tweaks over time only served to make fans appreciate these visuals even more so than before - no matter how small they may seem at first glance – because ultimately all connected back together under the same umbrella theme representing pride & passion shared amongst everyone involved within the organization itself (players/coaches/staff/fans alike).
