    It looks a bit clip arty but I don't hate it

      ^^ +1. They could be worse.

        Is that a new hockey team?

          Well at least he started in B/W and finished in B/W. It's simple and it works. No drop shadows, no bevels or emboss, or gradients.

          Overall it's a decent job.

          Wasn't there something about him starting up a global marketing company targeting everything from graphic design to film production or something?

            I thought the global marketing "genius" was the guy in white glasses...Kanye West?

            I was just reading an article on the Nets logo. overall it is bland, and the apparel is wonky.

            it doesn't have the normal sports bevels and many colors but seems a bit odd with line weights and letters.

              not bad, but it's basic. for a professional sports team i would expect something a little more refined. the S in nets on the first logo bugs me.

              This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.

              there is no grey area when it comes to 1 color logos.

                The second one works better then the shield.

                  I'm shocked it's not full of gradients and such.

                    Wait, JayZ designed it? Hm.

                    A designer friend of mine was soliciting opinions of this logo via Twitter. My reply was "I like that it's fairly simple & not overly complicated like many other newer sports teams' logos. Not especially *clever* though." His response: "Even the Raiders have silver with their black. B&W is not enough for a flexible brand, and the type and emblem lack cohesion."
