Our Ideas & Additional Information
"Pittsburgh Prospects" in the traditional Pittsburgh Pirates font, with "est. 1992" written underneath.

#1: the logo is a little too simple; not sure that the slogan needs to be included in its entirety; the color scheme is good; the font should more closely resemble the Pittsburgh Pirates font.
#2: the addition of a pirate is a good idea; the color scheme isn't quite right (it should be more yellow than gold); the "est. 1992" is good, but not placed correctly; the font used for "Prospects" should more closely resemble the Pittsburgh Pirates font.

Overall, the logo should look more like a fluid logo (one entity), rather than words and a slogan, or words and a picture... if that makes sense. Also, it is important that the font closely resembles the Pittsburgh Pirates font. Thanks.

as a 'burgher, born and raised, i can honestly say at this point i loathe the pirates organization. i support what you're trying to do. they've become a blemish on the city of champions... good luck!

Genesis, we appreciate the support. Got any good logo ideas that you might want to thrown our way? We would like to broadbast our message on as many tee-shirts as possible, in the best manner possible, reaching as many people as possible.

Cheers to the City of Champions!

The one thing that I can't stress enough is that the public should look at the logo from a distance (or at first glance) and think its a Pittsburgh Pirates logo... then upon closer examination realize it says "Prospects" instead of "Pirates." I think that the font is critical. Thanks.

Here are some links that should be helpful:

It might be wise to only slightly change the logos, but keep the basic properties... we want people to think these are Pittsburgh Pirate logos with the word "Pirates" replaced with "Prospects."

Thanks.

#14: ok, this is what I am talking about... this "theory" should be used as an example for additional ideas.

I have Placed a Temp Hold on the designs which are a direct copy of the "Pirates Logo" Until such time a verdict and licensing issues can be resolved...Our apologies for this interruption in the Judging Phase of the contest.

The logos you have put a hold on are not direct copies but various interpretations on the original as requested in the brief. I think putting a hold on them after judging began is absolutely outrageous.
