    New Court Design for Hilton

    I watch a lot of college basketball. Something I've noticed in the last few years is that schools are doing some interesting things with their court designs, and have wondered what Hilton would look like with a similar layout. I decided to put a few ideas together and share them here.

    You can probably tell, but I'm not very design-savvy, and made these in MS Paint.

    I like 2 and 3. I absolutely hate that bird head logo and don't want to see it prominantly displayed anywhere, especially on the court.

    Re: New Court Design for Hilton

    My vote is second from the top with the wood stained shape of Iowa. Those are actually very good for using MS Paint and I'm a designer by trade. At screen resolution I wouldn't have even known they were just MS Paint and figured you did them with illustrator vectors.

    How about a big, smiling, Hoiberg mug right in the center?

    Re: New Court Design for Hilton

    I like number 2, but I would also make the center court logo smaller, and possibly add the Hilton text. I've never been a fan of the huge center court logos, I think they'd all look much better if they were smaller.

    Think we actually put the new Big 12 logo on the court next year?

    Re: New Court Design for Hilton

    does the current court say Johnny Orr court on it somewhere? I can't remember if he had the court named after him.

    Nope.

    I love #2.

    Gonna need the Pioneer logos there too so I doubt we have any words or the Big 12 logo centered.

    Re: New Court Design for Hilton

    I liked #2 also, even before reading the responses.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
