    Chicago Bulls from the Jordan/Pippen era is my favorite sports team of all times! I had like trillions of T-shirts and shorts with this logo and played hoops in it with my troops. It got me that much that I had an old pair of Nike Airs and sprayed them red just to match my outfit :)

    But I always thought that there's a room for some improvements on the logo. It's one of the rare logos that hasn't been touched since day one (made in 1966) and yes, I just dared to play with it a bit. Biggest change is this direct basketball reference - you can now see recognizable lines from the ball applied to the bull's forehead! I've actually retouched all elements: curved the head on the top, added some shadows on the horns, redesigned ears and the entire eye area and added shadows below for more aggressive look, redesigned the nostrils and replaced the mouth line with just the curve on enclosure below. Hope you all like it!

    I dedicate this rebound to my best friend Branimir Jedvaj who passed away 2 years ago, he would turn 36 in 5 days from today (26th Nov). Rest in peace my brother, I think of you every single day and we all miss you beyond words.

    Alen, this is more than great. Love the horn shadows. Maybe you should add some more, like around the ears etc., then send the proposal to the Bulls. I would.

    The basketball grooves in the forehead are rad.

    i can't tell you how much i love this. i was absolutely the biggest bulls fan ever (perhaps even more than you!). my mom left my room untouched and exactly the same since i left the nest. every inch of the wall is filled with chicago bulls posters, limited edition starting lineup figures and magazine cutouts of pretty much every bull player during the jordan era. so when i go home, the nostalgia sets in every time.

    love what you did here with the logo. the subtle basketball within the forehead is spot on. great job alen. it's hard to revamp an already timeless classic, but you done well my friend.

    btw: jordan > lebron

    This is insanely good! So much better than the one they are using like, forever. Which is of course a great logo already

    Pitch this to them! The changes are subtle enough to not take away from the original design, but has enough impact to make all the difference. The basketball/forehead combo is really clever! Nice one, Alen.

    This is so perfect. Just the right amount of refreshment while still keeping the integrity and recognizability of the original. I seriously think that "hidden basketball" forehead would have the potential to go down in history like the Fedex arrow.

    Thank you all guys, I really really really appreciate any kind of approval on this one, thank you!

    @Colin Tierney wow man, that really IS a true fan story! :) Bulls were a real dream team and a mere definition of the sport: they had all kinds of people, from giants like Luc Longley to short guys like Steve Kerr, from calm guys like Bill Wellington to crazy freaks like Dennis Rodman, they had Americans and they had foreigners, like my countryman Toni Kukoc, and it all worked awesome like a well oiled machine. NBA games were aired Friday nights over here so we often stayed up all night, especially if it was a 5AM live from Los Angeles....

    Damn, those were the days....

    Looks awesome Alen. Wondering if a slight outline / black cut around the whites of the eyes would set them off? Loving the basketball play.

    Absolutely amazing Alen! I do agree with @Michael, a slight outline around the whites of the eyes could set them off. This was the only thing I could spot, the rest is flawless! Brilliance man.

    @Michael Spitz and @Zane David thanks guys, I won't clutter the playoff with the same rebounds but it's definitely something worth of a try offline. Thanks!

    @Manu thanks bud! He was also one of the true Bulls fans, we played hoops a lot and even been roommates for some time at the University. He studied for a football coach though and worked as a gym professor later in the local primary school. They named the new wing of that school after him.

    Really good and you kept the angry upside-down crab robot reading a book intact. Just gotta get them to use it now.

    Amazing work my friend. So subtle and perfect! This caught my attention as I was massively into basketball at the time and this was easily the greatest era for bball not just Chicago.

    Love it dude. I've thought for a while there was potential for this logo to look WAY more cool than it does – you went there.

    @Louis Rudner yeah I know, you could probably find some hidden messages in a lot of logos. Some see dick and balls when they flip Toyota's logo, dunno how to comment that at all.
    @Rich Scott really glad to see a lot of Bulls fans "crawling out" here, thanks a lot bro! :)
    @Jorge Puga yeah mate, nostalgia was the trigger here after all :)
    @Abdullah @Owen Jones @Thomas Norsted much obliged, gentlemen!
