The Golden State Warriors are trying to remain the kings of the NBA by winning their third-straight championship, but, when it comes to graphic design and branding, well, the franchise might want to step up its game a little more. I’m not trying to shit all over the good and talented folks who work for the Dubs in that department — because not everyone can draw a team logo — but, sheesh, couldn’t the team come up with something better than the new logo that was just released for the 2019-20 season?
According to the Warriors, the updated logo has a “fresh look,” which more accurately depicts the Bay Bridge and uses a custom font. Uh, take a look at the damn thing below and tell me if you see much of a different between the current Golden State Warriors logo and this so-called new and improved one.
Obviously, because the updated logo looks like the exact same fucking thing as the current one, once the Dubs released it to the world on Twitter, people couldn’t help but rip the team a new one. Take a look at some of the stuff users on social media were commenting about it below.
This kind of reminds me of the time when, not too long ago, the Cleveland Browns made an upgrade to their logo and uniforms, releasing a “fresher” version of their brand with a look that was, well, kind of the exact same. Remember that? Yeah, me too.
Unless you’ve got some sort of obsession with fonts or design, you’re probably like most people who think that the Golden State Warriors logo release kind of falls flat on its face. Then again, it does have me writing about it and people on Twitter talking about it, so maybe they’ve actually tricked us all into thinking it’s something amazing — even though it’s basically the same damn thing.
