  • A brand is more than just a logo - it encompasses all aspects of a team or organization, including the players, community, and fan experience.
  • When launching a new brand or alternate identity, it's important to consider the community, fans, and demographics of the team's market.
  • Successful brands go beyond the logo and consider the full lifespan of the brand, including merchandise, marketing, and storytelling.
  • Launching a new brand requires buy-in from stakeholders, including influencers and insiders, as well as a strong merchandising strategy.
