alt   

The Washington Wizards are a professional basketball team based in Washington, D.C., previously known as Washington Bullets. They play in theNational Basketball Association (NBA), and play their home games at the Verizon Center in the Chinatown section of Washington, D.C.


In 2011, as a part of rebuilding and rebranding, the team unveiled a modified version of their current logo and also released some new alternate logos. The logo comprises of the following key elements

 

  • The wizard appears to be sitting on a basketball in the shape of a moon 
  • The letter W for Washington and the wizard's beard are nicely integrated 
  • The logo depicts a wizard holding a ball in one hand and a magic spark in the other hand

 

The new logo also uses the red, white and blue colors whereas the previous logo had light blue, brown and black. Certain aspects of the logo have been made sharper and the wizard also appears to be at a different angle.   

 

Washington Wizards Logo - Design and History    With the color shift, the team introduced two new secondary logos. One of the new marks is a lowercase "dc", with the upright tip of the "d" opening as a hand--a direct link to the "i€™s" in the former all lowercase Washington Bullets logo. The connection to the past mark is deepened by the hand reaching for a ball, which was a key element of the past script logo of the Bullets.
   

 

 

 

  The other secondary logo is a basketball with the image of the Washington Monument integrated into its channels and a topped with a star, combining the game of basketball with a pair of iconic symbols of Washington, DC, and the United States of America.
