Pipers Logo History
The Minnesota Pipers logo has a rich history that spans more than 50 years. The original logo, designed in 1967 by artist Bob Guccione, featured a basketball with two wings and the word “Pipers” written across it. This design was used for several seasons until the team changed its name to the Pittsburgh Condors in 1970. After this change, new logos were created for both teams featuring an orange basketball surrounded by blue flames and their respective names written on top of them.
In 1972 when the Pipers rejoined ABA as part of their merger with NBA they adopted a new look that included an eagle head inside of an orange circle bordered by white stars and stripes along with text reading ‘Minnesota Pipers’ underneath it all. This design would be used until 1975 when they once again rebranded themselves as Pittsburgh Condors before merging back into NBA in 1976 after just one season playing under ABA rules once again using the same logo from before but replacing 'Pipers'with 'Condors'.
The current Minnesota Pipers have kept much of this history alive through their own designs over recent years including bringing back elements such as stars & stripes bordering around circular shapes or adding subtle nods to the past like reintroducing color schemes from previous versions while also modernizing overall look so that it fits within today's sports landscape. All these changes show how important understanding a team's heritage can be when creating a successful branding strategy going forward into future generations!
