Contest to determine new Warriors logo if they drop ‘Golden State’


The Golden State Warriors have a new plot of land to build a new stadium, and are considering changing their city affiliation and dropping “Golden State.” No decision has been made yet, but the Warriors are trying to gauge what the fans think.

“We’re very curious what our fans think of that,” Warriors president and CEO Rick Welts told Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.com. “I couldn’t imagine making that decision in the very near future, but we definitely want to see what our fans prefer.”

The folks over at 99designs, an online graphic design marketplace, invited designers to submit their versions of an updated Warriors logo and got over 1,200 submissions. They’ve uploaded them to the website and you can vote for your favorites, and the winning design will get a $500 prize. The eight designs came from coutnries all over the world including the United Kingdom, Ukraine, Serbia, Macedonia and Indonesia.

Here are some examples, and make sure to go vote.
