Next up in my NBA Player ID Project is @jharden13
This logo illustrates James' "stirring the pot".
His style and look has a retro feel so I wanted to carry that over to his identity.
I was inspired by classic advertisements, art & posters of the 50's & 60's as well as vintage barber shop, men care advertisements.
The combination of the serifs and a playful hands were used to illustrate motion.
I've always admired the logos created for NBA athlete footwear. From Jordan's Jumpman to Penny's 1 cent, Dikimbe Mutombos's, shield, I've always admired the simplicity a logo brings. Over the past 20 years in the basketball industry I've been able to create some of my own logos for NBA athletes (KG, Gilbert Arenas, Jason Richardson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Vince Carter, Sprewell, to name a few.)
I've taken it upon myself to design new logos for today's newest and brightest stars. Some are re-designs and some new. Hey, maybe they'll end up on a shoe near you.
First up Draymond Green. @Money23Green
I wanted the icon to be a very bold and strong money symbol (could also double as the letter "S" for Saginaw, Draymond's home town where he drew so much inspiration for the person/player he is today. Also built into the "$" is a "D" & "G"
