Mobile Mardi Gras

Did you know Mobile, AL is the birthplace of Mardi Gras in the U.S.? Alabama!? They still have a big party down there even if it’s now been eclipsed by New Orleans. Hard to pass up imagery like that so we did a bunch of concepts to celebrate that event. In the end, the team felt like Mardi Gras wasn’t for everyone and the the Mobile BayBears are.

A couple good ideas buried in there though. I still want to do a King-of-Baseball themed identity. And the ears on a cap might be cool. Have a great weekend! Team Coco.

  1. I dig the one at top left a lot. The head has almost an art-deco simplicity to it. The crown’s ornateness (is that a word?) throws that off a bit, but I still like it. I could see where a minor-league client may want something with more living character, but for my personal tastes, it rocks.

  2. The bottom two sketches are killer.

    Galveston, TX also has a Mardi Gras but it pales compared to New Orleans. Sort of how every place celebrates the New Year but New York is the place that comes to mind when you think of New Year’s Eve.

  3. I totally agree with T.J. That 3/4 head has real personality to it and looks amazing. I know if made into a real mark it would have been stellar.
