Shock Alternate Logo
The Tulsa Shock is a professional basketball team in the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA). The franchise was founded in 1998 and relocated to Oklahoma from Detroit, Michigan. Since then, the Shock has become an important part of Tulsa’s sports culture. While their primary logo has remained relatively consistent over time, they have also had several alternate logos that represent different eras of their history.
One of the earliest alternate logos for the Tulsa Shock featured a lightning bolt with “Tulsa” written across it in red letters on top and “Shock” written below it in blue letters. This logo was used between 1998-2003 when they were based out of Detroit before relocating to Oklahoma City for two years until 2005 when they moved back to Tulsa permanently.
Another alternative logo introduced during this period included an orange circle with a white silhouette inside depicting two hands shaking each other above three stars representing city pride and unity among its citizens as well as reflecting upon how far women's professional basketball had come since its inception into mainstream media coverage through organizations such as WNBA. This particular symbol can still be seen today on some merchandise sold by local retailers throughout the Oklahoma City area stores which serve both fans living within state borders or those who travel from elsewhere just so get a chance to witness live action featuring the home team taking the court against visiting opponents at BOK Center arena located downtown district near Arkansas River shoreline.
In 2011, after moving back to their permanent home base city –the new official secondary emblem became one inspired by Native American artistry where a tipi tent shape formed the centerpiece surrounded by four feathers radiating outward like rays of the sun while words "Tulsa" & "Shock" painted along bottom side respectively left right-hand sides order complete look design overall. This specific badge served a dual purpose honoring tribal heritage people regionally while also providing a unique visual identity the organization could use to differentiate itself competition and stand out crowd even further addition already established branding efforts made prior to move rebranding process began earnestly in 2011 up until the the the present day 2019 going strong ever since!
