Seattle Sonics
Branding - 2022
Illustrator, Photoshop, Fresco
This was a concept re-design of the Seattle Sonics Branding. The previous design had a nostalgic quality but had dated itself over time. The goal was
to create a timeless, regional branding system that could scale to the various needs of an NBA team. The Sonic name was based off a jet developed by Boeing, so the central theme of the re-design was pairing plane and Seattle iconography together. The type was inspired by the mechanical lettering that could be found in the Boeing factory or down by the Seattle Pier juxtaposed against some of the hand lettering type in Pike Place Market.
