If you're really interested make the PS plunge. I've heard it's well worth the money and you can't really draw like bigdub without it. GIMP is a good start though. Personally I'm still proud of just making transparent layers.
Photoshop cost money? Lol. Sorry I didnt go there... piracy is bad!
I think the New Orleans Flambeau would be sweet. We could have an awesome logo/mascot with one of those guys with the cool masks. Nobody else seems to like it.
How about the New Orleans Mojo, Austin Powers could be our Mascot.
I got an ideo for bigdub to do. See if we dont rebrand, why can't we change our uniforms. I like this idea with the all black & a design going from the side of the jersey to the side of the shorts. It can be on gold line or something but when it get to the end of the shorts it breaks into purple & creole blue aswell. It's hard to describe, but it will be pretty dope tho.
I got this from my school Mcdonogh 35 basketball uniforms, as we wear maroon & gold but we got an set of uniforms that's black.
So what you think BigDub?
New Orleans Big Shots
New Orleans Zulus
New Orleans Drummers
This is all. End transmission.
Here is the original logo that I created for the Dukes which was inside of the shield initally before I replaced it with the fdl's.
I like the other one better, but this is pretty cool.
Maybe I just have a filthy mind, but there is something a bit wrong with that one

Nice alternative logo... strong work.
I once had some of the worst grits and drippings in the Queen City
Nicely Done bigdub! When can we expect to see the NOLA Pilots concepts?
I'd prefer Knights to Dukes, but as it's been stated before, logos and fonts for the two could be interchangeable. What about a nice coat of arms? How about a Mardi Gras captain's mask? Could also be used for Krewe or Captains.
You shall reap the benefits of your efforts, Dub. Good work.
I'm working on it now. I really didn't know where I wanted to take the design, how I wanted it to look, but I came up with something that I think you'll like.Nicely Done bigdub! When can we expect to see the NOLA Pilots concepts?
Hey guys- old fan from Charlotte here who gave up on the Hornets when they left town, and now I'm a fan of he worst team in the history of basketball.
I'm very excited that the name Hornets could be coming home, I wish u guys could have the Jazz name back but, it doest look like that will happen. With that said, it looks like u guys are hard at work on a name and logo that would fit New Orleans better.
What is the next steps in the New Orleans rebrand?
I'm guessing Tom Benson has to officially be approved by the NBA board of Governors before any changes can be made but, what comes next?
I'm hoping that Tom Benson is already hard at work on developing names and logos and not waiting in the BOG's meeting.
What's the vibe down there? Do u think u can have a new logo/name in place by next season?
With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!
Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.
Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.
That is TOO friggin' cool. I'd go broke buying merchandise.
Nice work, bigdub! I can see why you took this off the primary, though.
Maybe you guys want this merged with other rebrand threads...
It seems there are many different ideas what to rename the team. I am curious though what colors best represent not only who the team is, but what they can be. The Mardi Gras colors obviously would be popular. But I think its cool to thing outside the typical color scheme. Or at least incorporate those colors with other ideas. To me a good color scheme for a team will consist of 2 or 3 colors. Any more and you are looking at a rainbow. Here are some color combos I like (dominate color first, letters/numbers color second, piping third:
I think those all black Heat uni's are slick. But instead of all black how about: dark charcoal gray, white
Dark charcoal Gray, dark purple, burgundy red
Hunter Green, Black, White
Black, Dark Purple, Gold
Black, Gold, Blue
Whats your ideas?
