Trailblazers Wordmark Logo
The Portland Trailblazers have a long and storied history, and their wordmark logo has been with them since the beginning. The original logo was created in 1970 when the team entered the NBA as an expansion franchise. It featured a stylized letter “P” inside of a circle, which represented both Portland and basketball itself. The colors used were red, black, white, and yellow – all representing Oregon state pride – while also creating an aesthetically pleasing look that resonated with fans across America.
In 2002 they updated their logo to give it a more modern appeal by using bolder lines on the letters of “Trail Blazers” along with adding silver accents around each letter for increased emphasis on its design elements. This version is still used today but modified slightly over time to include other graphic elements such as flames or stars behind it for special occasions like anniversaries or championships won by the team throughout its tenure in professional sports leagues like NBA & WNBA.
Overall, this iconic wordmark has become synonymous not only within basketball circles but amongst general sports fans alike due to its recognizable shape, vibrant colors & unique font style making it one of the most iconic logos ever designed in any sport!
