The 17 Coolest Fan-Created Logos For The New Orleans Pelicans

There were many doubters when it was announced the NBA's New Orleans Hornets were planning on changing their name to the Pelicans, but if these fan-created logos are any indication, it may end up being pretty cool.

The New Orleans Hornets have announced that they will likely be changing their name to the New Orleans Pelicans. Originally that decision was met with doubts and scoffs, but that was before anyone saw what a designer could do with the concept. Enter, a community-based design website that is currently holding a contest for its users to try to create a logo to fit the team's new name. So after you check out some of my favorite designs, you should go over to 99designs and vote. Now on to my favorites.
