The Pacers "P/zipping basketball" logo is iconic in the NBA. You know who it is when see the logo. With this concept, I wanted to still include that logo which I updated, but I also wanted to show the state of Indiana, which is such a strong Basketball state anyways. There is so much history in the State of Indiana, that I felt that it needed to be included in the logo.

A "P" is a difficult letter to work with as far as logos go. I aimed to keep the current Pacers feel, with a hint of the throwback logo. Lightened the blue slightly and added the checkered to relate to "pace" and Indiana's racing history.

The Pacers have stuck with this look since the late 1960's, so I didn't want to change it too much. I tried to add more motion to it and give more meaning to their team name, so I added a checkered pattern to the "P" to represent a the checkered flag used in racing.

The name Pacers is apparently a reference to harness racing (a kind of horse racing) and the pace car in the Indianapolis 500 race. I wanted the logo to have a sense of speed but also keep it pretty simple. I think I could have drawn the player a little better because it doesn’t look great at small sizes, so maybe the version without him is better.
