San Jose Sharks pride logo


I was selected by the San Jose Sharks to create a logo and patch for their Pride Night on March 18, 2023 which featured these designs on the players’ warm up jerseys. My approach to this design was to go simple. Simple and easy enough that a child could understand that this logo represents love. LOVE.

The meaning behind the main logo:

The shark in the middle is the representation of the trans community as it is depicted in the colors of the transgender flag.

The hockey sticks have the progressive LGBTQIA+ tape at the bottom and love written on the grips on the top to represent how the LGBTQIA+ community loves and uplifts each other. The hockey sticks are under the shark cradling it to show that the community is hugging and lifting up our trans community to give them strength and support.

The heart in the back represents San Jose Sharks and the City of San Jose holding space, love, and support for the LGBTQIA+ community. 

The crest as a whole represents love, acceptance, and safe spaces for LGBTQIA+ people and communities by having big voices like San Jose Sharks showcase Pride at games to show LGBTQIA+ representation and  support to our local LGBTQIA+ organizations. 

The meaning behind the Love Wins patch:

Love wins lettering was inspired by the SJ Sharks 1990 word-mark logo. The waves in the back are in the colors of the progressive LGBTQIA+ flag. The water is meant to illustrate the movement towards safety for LGBTQIA+ communities. 

I would like to express my deep gratitude to Local Color for connecting me to the San Jose Sharks, the San Jose Earthquakes for recommending me to Local Color, and the San Jose Sharks for selecting me to honor our LGBTQIA+ community.

The San Jose Earthquakes and Adobe asked me to create a mural with the theme of “What does Pride mean to you?” I created the design to represent a flower arch to show how our queer ancestors fought for love equality. The signs represent how far we have come, but also the fight that we must continue of protecting trans youth and adults. The soccer balls represent different LGBTQIA+ flags and the flowers are the colors of the progressive flag. My partner and I are in the middle to show our respects to our queer ancestors and to celebrate our love out load. My partner is sporting the San Jose Earthquakes’ jersey to pin our location to my hometown of San Jose, CA.

A special thanks to the San Jose Earthquakes and Adobe for selecting me for this beautiful project and for giving me full artistic freedom throughout the creation of the mural. Another special thanks to Decca Design and San Jose Stage for taking care of me during the process of the mural.
