Cool unofficial alt logo

    Ran across this on Twitter. Bad-ass! Would be nice to track down the original artist and pitch it to the Seahawks as the new alternate logo. So much better than out old, seldom-used alt logo, and perfect with the new uniform motif.

    I just felt the urge to point out that you once lectured me that "badass" is grammatically correct as one word.

    Carry on.

    The noun is. The adjective is not. Thus sayeth the bad-ass badass.

  • This logo? It was retired in 2011. So I can see that it's seldom used now. But I've always liked it. :smiley_boxin:

  • Yea, that logo, Kitsap. It was cool, but the one I posted above is so much better! I'd absolutely love to see the 'Hawks refine and adopt that as their new alt logo.

    It also hearkens back more to the native art that inspired the original logo, which I think is absolutely fantastic.

  • I think they are BOTH equally awesome saying that as a graphic designer. To Sailor's point, his logo he showcased is a tremendous tip of the cap to the native American art that the original logo derived from with a bridge to the contemporary. However, the alt logo Kitsap shows is a brilliant piece of artwork by itself and one I always hoped the Seahawks would adopt as a secondary logo for uniforms/helmets but for whatever reason it was never meant to be.

    I have no dog in this fight other to say those are both sweet alt logos for the team.

    It's a simple equation. you take the badass constant of the logo and divide it by the lameness constant of the firebird multiplied by the length of the driver's hair.

    Problem is that who ever drew that picture does not know the difference between a sea hawk (osprey) and an eagle, The head an beak on this picture are more eagle. See below.

    It's a simple equation. you take the badass constant of the logo and divide it by the lameness constant of the firebird multiplied by the length of the driver's mullet.



    Fixed it for you.

  • FWIW, the original logo was created for a t-shirt and hoodie that were sold on teespring about a year ago. I picked it up on a hoodie, and it's easily my favorite sweatshirt in a long time.

    You might still be able to get your hands on one if you contact the artist directly. The artist's Facebook page is here: https://www.facebook.com/Ilovetheseahawks

    Purchase his stuff and support his work if you love it!

  • That logo would be perfect as a cover up of an old tat I have. It's a bison head with horns that reach up, like the wings. The colors would be plenty dark.
    Does anybody know if the photo is public domain?

  • That logo was available as a t-shirt on tee spring a while back.

    I snapped one up and get lots of nice comments when I wear it.

    Edit:
    My buddy had a different design but I did get a screen grab when I saw this logo on a hoodie/t-shirt for sale
