Nets Formally Unveil New Black And White Brooklyn Logos; Designs Panned On Twitter
Published April 30, 2012
THUMBS DOWN ON TWITTER: The Twittersphere has chimed in on the new logos, and it seems that the new marks have left people underwhelmed. The N.Y. Post's Bart Hubbuch wrote, "Nets' new logo and colors are so generic that it might as well say 'ACME.' Reminds me of generic beer and cigarette props in old movies." Complex magazine's Russ Bengtson wrote, "The new Nets logo looks like it was printed by a computer that didn't have the font specified, so it used the default." The N.Y. Times' Tyler Kepner wrote, "Terrible! No colors, no team name, and as always, no actual net." ESPN's Kevin Conners wrote, "I think it's cool that Jay-Z allowed a 2nd grader to come up with the new Nets logo." Sporting News' Jesse Spector wrote, "Cheers to the Brooklyn Nets for keeping it simple with the logo. Jeers for not advancing past a pencil doodle." But the N.Y. Daily News' Stefan Bondy wrote, "On third impression, I really like the Nets logo and colors."
