Some branding news: We have a logo, colors and look for the startup Portland Pickles (summer collegiate; Great West League), complete with a mascot, Dillon.
The team’s primary colors are navy, green and gray, with the team mascot figuring prominently in the branding. Dillon is decked out in a Pickles uniform and is already scheduling appearances. You can read about his backstory at the Pickles website.
The team’s primary logo features Dillon placed over a baseball. Dillon is also shown over a baseball on a badge logo that highlights “Portland Baseball.” The team will also use “Pickles” in script extensively, including over a baseball on a badge logo that again highlights “Portland Baseball,” reflecting the Pickles bringing baseball back to Portland.
The Pickles will play 30-home games at renovated Walker Stadium, beginning with the team’s home opener Friday, June 10.
The Pickles branding was produced by Prolific Sport Design Combine of St. Louis, Missouri. The Pickles are the fifth baseball client for Prolific Sport Design Combine, following the River City Rascals, Gateway Grizzlies, Cowlitz Black Bears and Klamath Falls Gems. The firm has also done product and logo designs for pro athletes, MLB, NHL and MLS.
As noted, the Pickles are part of the Great West League, set to begin in 2016 with six teams.
