Jay-Z is an amazing emcee, trendsetter, businessman and most recently, a logo designer.
Hov recently made headlines with the announcement of his Made In America music festival in Philadelphia.
While out in PA to present the fest, Jay got a chance to sit down with MTV news and talk about the inspiration behind the seemingly basic Brooklyn Nets logo.
“I wanted to make it really classic and strong; a throwback to Brooklyn and what we’re about. It’s real gritty and we’re not about flash — well, sometimes. Just the roots of Brooklyn as this very bold, strong, simple logo."
"It was really a take off the old subway signs, if you look at the old subway signs they were in black and white. It was that strong, beautiful, iconic black and white. I wanted to pick something that would stand the test of time and be here forever.”
We love the logo, its clean lines and simplified color scheme. You can take a look at the MTV interview with Jay-Z in the video above!
