I guess its a safe bet, that purple, teal, light-blue, will be the colors. But yeah, no changing the Hugo logo - "just clearing it up" is fine, or not...
Great work. I love the logos but something isn't working for me on the unis. I'm not artistic enough to put my finger on it though.
The feedback so far has been interesting. Let's think about this situation. Say MJ chose this proposal. Generally, people seem to like it except for the fact that it's not a direct link to the past colors and changes Hugo. How much goodwill does MJ eat into if he tinkers too much w/ Hugo or goes with a carolina blue over teal or purple?
While I have never liked teal or purple, I think the team would be facing headlines like "MJ can't even get a re-brand right" or "MJ botches it again". I think he'd eat into, I don't know, half(?) the goodwill generated with the name change.
I don't really do logos as such often but Im gonna come up with how I feel we should be adjusting and updating the OG Charlotte Hornets branding as soon as I can.

Like how you tried to be original and daring with this. Very nice.
Like ammo said perfectly, we're rebranding from the Bobcats to Hornets, not rebranding the Hornets.
"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
I hope they use black a lot more. The Panthers black jersey is HOT. would love to see an alternate or road jersey that uses black with the teal/purple. But yeah, Hugo has to stay the same, and I don't even think it should be updated (except I do like Ammos Idea of putting a pair of Jordans on him... that would be cool) The Celtic logo hasn't even been dusted in 60 years, so theres no reason to change something that iconic.
Into the crevasse!
