NBA Logos as 80s Cartoons? Awesome (Pics)

Sports logo mashups are pretty hit or miss. Some of them are totally awesome. Some of them are just so so.

The ones we have for you here? Well, a Spanish graphic design firm called Vanilla BCN created a mashup of NBA logos as 80s cartoons, and it’s totally awesome. There’s 12 in all, including the Celtics x Ghostbusteres, Bulls x Transformers, Grizzlies x Care Bears, and—my personal favorite—Nets x Ninja Turtles.

The folks at Mashable reached out to the designers to get find out what inspired the project. Here’s what they had to say:

“We both were born in 1983; we wanted to create something to connect people from our generation. We watched a lot of cartoons during our childhood, it’s just been part of our background. As type lovers, we liked the types used in these cartoons as much as we loved the NBA logos — so we had the idea to mash them up.”

Take a look at the results:

If these guys put these on t-shirts they could make a killing…assuming they get the legalities worked out.
