Spotlight on Sports Logo Creator Brandiose

January 7, 2016

The motto when I started Awesome Sports Logos was to bring the fun and creativity back to sports logos. Hopefully you have found several of our logos creative with some great local meaning behind them. That’s what logos should be about.

I’ve been meaning to write about this company for a while because they deserve a lot of credit for what they have done. Brandiose is knocking it out of the park with some of their sports logos. You won’t see a bland logo come out of this company. Their logos are unique with rich local history. How do they know that history? Because they visit the market, speak with the teams and the locals. They do more than just a Google or Wikipedia search to find out the local history. Here are some of my favorite logos that Brandiose has come up with.

The El Paso Chihuahuas

Now one of the top selling Minor League Logos, it was awesome to fly into El Paso International Airport and see several stores proudly selling Chihuahuas merchandise.

The Biloxi Shuckers

 

 

The original “Seafood Capital of the World is highlighted with this logo. It’s awesome how they made a mollusk look so serious.  Anyone can make a lion look ferocious but Brandiose can make an oyster look like a .330 hitter with some pop in that bat.

 The Spokane Indians

 

This once again highlights the diversity of Brandiose. This is a perfect example of embracing the culture and history of an area. This logo’s lettering is in Salish, the language of the Spokane Tribe.  In an era where many Indian logos are disappearing, this is a rare instance where the tribe gave their blessing on this logo. I’m fascinated with the Salish lettering and coupled with the history, this is what an Awesome Sports Logo is all about.

 The Akron RubberDucks

 

 

Akron is the Rubber Capitol of the World. I love the weaving in of a mean looking Rubber Duck with tire tracks. We had the same concept with our Akron Rubbers Logo when we made our racing t-shirt.

Here are two of their latest projects, the Hartford Yard Goats and the Norfolk Tides.

 

 

 

Baseball is returning to Hartford for the first time since 1952. The new team did a “name the team” contest and Yard Goats was the choice. It was up to Brandiose to come up with the logo and to me, they nailed it. I especially love the logo colors. According the Yard Goats website, they pay tribute to the Hartford Whalers which I think is an awesome detail.

 

Some were upset when the Norfolk Tides changed their logo. I can’t understand why. The wave sports logo to me was just there. I thought it was a really cool idea to embrace the history of the team by keeping the name but making the logo fresh and marketable. This logo also continues to embrace what Norfolk is all about. I can guarantee that merchandise sales will go up in Norfolk.

Kudos to you Brandiose! You are bringing back the fun and creativity back to sports logos and doing it the right way. We think you are awesome!

 

Of our baseball logos, the one we get asked, “Is that a real baseball team” is our Idaho Taters cool t-shirt. It was our first logo created and is still one of our favorites. You can pick up the Taters and add it to the list as part of our T-shirt of the Month Club.

 

 

Thanks as always for reading, you guys are awesome!

Happy New Year!!
