I got an email from a middle school down in Texas asking if they could use the logo I designed for the proposed New Orleans Hornets rebrand I did back in school for "Spirit Items" like t-shirts and so on. Currently they're using the yellow jacket mascot below.
I don't think that they're swapping the logo out… they just want to use mine, too… ? Which is kinda weird, right? They said they'd like it for free because they're a low-income public school but realize that they may have to pay for it.
So, I'm kinda at a loss for what to do. I don't know exactly why, but I feel a bit resistant to the idea. On one hand it's cool that my logo would be "out in the public" but I would have zero control of how and where it's used. And still, if they have a logo, I don't get why they would want to use 2 different marks.
What do you guys think? WWYD?
