Thanks once more Bennie. Will we have a poll to decide the winner?
I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy — not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

I don't know how to make it, but how about Lucky flexing his muscles being a part of it? 

Just an idea if anyone wishes to run with it.

We need one of Lucky holding up the world or championship like Atlas.   Hence, Celticsstrong!

I was thinking of going the humble route and submitting my own avatar for the logo. bdm860's Celtics Strong, has a nice ring to it.  ;)


Not hating on those who submitted, no doubt more talented than me, but some ones I don't like:

#17 looks too much like the old Sonics logo for my taste.



#7 looks like a biohazard symbol to me.  #6 is kinda weird too, biohazard meets Olympics.

That hand doesn't fit in #11


For what I do like:

I like 20, but I don't think it works well as a main logo.

Something about #12, I don't think it would work well as this sites logo, but it looks really cool.  Like a patch someone would sew on their jacket in a different era.

To me, #3 and #19 are the front runners.  They convey in a simple manner what I think a logo should look like without being too busy, and hit the color schemes I'm used to.


One thing I remember Jeff saying at the old site though, something about having to get the logo cleared by the actual Celtics.  That's why CelticsBlog had a 4-leaf clover instead of the regular Shamrock.  A lot of these are too close to the actual Shamrock, I think the C's would look to protect their IP.

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

I´m a graphic designer and I´ll try to contribute my own proposition until the deadline. But seeing these, I see a couple professional level logos that stand out, #17 #16 #10 and #3. Unfortunately the others are just clearly very amateur.

Not to be too harsh, but I really don't like any of the designs so far.

#16 so far for me.
A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals.
