Milwaukee Bucks Logo Design Ideas and Inspirations
- The Bucks new logo design features a fierce and forward-looking ahead buck to showcase determination and focus on the front path only.
- Interestingly, compared to its previous 2006 version, the Buck is more mature now. The designer also creatively expanded its rack from 8 to 12 points to show the maturation of the Buck. Furthermore, this also underlining the point the Buck has become an even greater force.
- The negative space between the antlers also designed to resemble a basketball
- The M shape placed within the chest chevron clearly placed as a homage to Milwaukee
- The new woodmark features a font designed with hard edges that appear almost cut from metal, and industrial but classic proprietary font juxtaposed against the curvature of the logo represents a symbolic union of urban and rural Wisconsin.
- Good Land Green, the Bucks' traditional color for almost 50 years, represents Wisconsin deep woods and diverse landscapes. "Milwaukee" also supposedly based on Algonquian word meaning "The Good Land".
- Cream City Cream is the foundational color of Milwaukee Bucks brand identity. The cream color also refers to Milwaukee's old nickname "The Cream City". At the late 19th century, cream-colored bricks were used for constructing many buildings. Uniquely, the Bucks is the only NBA team using a cream hue.
Milwaukee Bucks Logo History and Trivia
- Milwaukee Bucks logo history can be traced back to 1968. At the time a fan contest was held to choose the team's name with 40,000 entries. The "Bucks" name actually was the second-most popular choice compared to "Robins" that came out as the most-voted fan entry (robin is the Wisconsin's state bird).
- Despite that, the contest judges chose the bucks, which was also referred to Wisconsin's official wild animal, as the winner.
- A fan named R.D. Trebilcox was awarded a new car for his reasoning that bucks were spirited, good jumpers, fast and agile.
