Figured this would be a topic up for debate soon. Any of you guys good with graphic design? I'd love to see some ideas.

Here are some from the Internet that others have designed... I love Bigdub81's

I think the Jerseys from post two look really good as a modern take on the old hornets uniforms. However the Logo from post one looks a better and meaner than the 2nd. Particular in the eyes. And the teal court looks better than purple.

i hope they don't go with teal and purple as base colors. don't mind as much as accents but really don't like the color scheme. way too early 90's. cool as a throwback but not day in and day out.

They can't go back to the Hornets name without using Teal and Purple in some way. It wouldn't be complete if they didn't use teal and purple in some fashion.

Personally think they should stay away from the purple uni's. No grown ass man I know wants to walk around wearing purple.

I think a compromise should be struck where the new unifroms are the current color with the old logo and jersey style. We can do the old school teal and purple and have 4 different throwbacks. More merch the better.

cats should definitely get a throwback night once or twice a year

We better use the old fonts and everything. None of this modern stuff. I want it the same way it was with just slight updates.

bigdub81s court is a thing of beauty and should be implemented starting tonight.

two things i want and i will compromise on anything else:

1. we must use the classic hugo logo as the primary

2. we must keep teal as a primary color

i never cared for purple for reasons mustachio explains but if i get my 2 wishes its fine by me. in fact bigdubs purple jersey looks pretty damn good.

I think you can lighten/darken the teal and purple to create a more modern look. And I saw a dash of Carolina Green in there which I thought was cool.

I'd like to see the logo a little less cartoony. Bring it to 2013. From walkman to ipod.

But I didn't live here when the original Hornet were around so I don't have the same attachment to it. I'm sure it would be emotional for a lot of people. :)

Well, if they're going Hornets, then they need to go full Hornets. Aside from the historical connections here, people are buying up the purple and teal merch right now. I think they'd be wise to run with that.

Now, if they want to keep a small Bobcats connection, I realiy love the "Crown C" logo used recently, but especially the teal version on the last page. I'm all for keeping that and just updating the colors.

I didn't like the purp and teal back in the 90's but now thats it gone I miss it. If we are going back to the Hornets I want the colors back too. If they want to change it later thats fine. But bringing back the buzz means bringing back everything.

There is some really nice concept designs for the court and the kits. I can't wait to see the Hornets name and colors back.

Sorry, I have to disagree too lol !!

But still, I will be curious to see what could be made with the old logo and actual color

If a (brilliant) graphics designer like Bigdub81's could create such a thing :rkiss0:, just for curiousity...
