As released today from Hornets Sports & Entertainment, the NBA 2K League will have another team to contend with during the 2020 season: Hornets Venom GT! The team will become the League’s 22nd franchise.
The name and logo both invoke the intensity and intimidation of a hornet, with the teal and white logo designed to represent its piercing, ominous gaze. The white “V” ties to the name while doubling as a portion of the head. The logo is simple and clean, designed to convey its message in any size or format, whether that be digital within the game, in print, on merchandise or in other uses. The wordmark and logo were created by RARE Design.
Along with the name and logo, Hornets Venom also launched their social media sites on Twitter (@HornetsVenomGT), Instagram (HornetsVenomGT) and Facebook (HornetsVenomGT), along with a Twitch channel (HornetsVenomGT).
Hornets Venom will unveil the designs of their court and jerseys in the coming months. Fans can visit HornetsVenomGT.com for more information and to register to receive future announcements.
