A Pretty Fantastic, Unofficial, Redesigned Mavs Logo

MAVSLOGO

Addison Foote gave himself a challenge: redesign all 30 NBA team logos in 30 days. The result is here, and his reworked and updated takes on the logos are almost all really good (I’m not crazy about the Atlanta one), most with subtle shapes that represent something iconic about the city without screaming and pointing. I really like his throwback Mavs logo, because I’ve always loved the original and have never fallen in love with what the team uses now. “I used both old and new Mavs logos as inspiration for this,” Foote writes. “I based it mainly off the old logo where the ‘M’ is wearing a cowboy hat. I updated it a bit and used negative space to showcase a horses ears and head.”

    Oookkkayyy… Well, I now know not to be too concerned with DMagazine’s criticism of my flag designs.

    • Brandon Snook

      I was under the impression that D liked your flag design. I like it, as well.

  • @zaccrain

    I like your flag. Or I did. Kidding. Or am I?

    meh.
    I too remember fondly the years of the hat, and with that Don Carter, Reunion, Derek, Mark, Brad and the boys…but that logo says zero about being a basketball team (remember the old hat logo was with a ball), or anything about our city. Total failure on the whole “horses ears and head” thing he tried to incorporate.
