PRESS RELEASE – The Portland Pickles are excited to introduce their team branding package, as they get ready for their inaugural 2016 season. The team’s primary colors are navy, green and gray, with the team mascot figuring prominently in the branding.
The Pickles are a member of the Great West League, a new summer collegiate wood-bat baseball league, featuring six teams in Oregon and California. The team will play 30-home games at renovated Walker Stadium, beginning with the team’s home opener Friday, June 10th.
The team mascot, Dillon, is the greatest pickle in the world. Dillon is decked out in a Pickles uniform and is ready for life in the spotlight. He is lovable and has a great story of how he became part of the Pickles team. That story is available on the team website www.portlandpicklesbaseball.com and Dillon is available for appearances.
The team’s primary logo features Dillon placed over a baseball. Dillon is also shown over a baseball on a badge logo that highlights “Portland Baseball.” The team will also use “Pickles” in script extensively, including over a baseball on a badge logo that again highlights “Portland Baseball”, reflecting the Pickles bringing baseball back to Portland.
The Pickles branding was produced by Prolific Sport Design Combine of St. Louis, Missouri. The Pickles are the fifth baseball client for Prolific Sport Design Combine, following the River City Rascals, Gateway Grizzlies, Cowlitz Black Bears and Klamath Falls Gems. The firm has also done product and logo designs for pro athletes, MLB, NHL and MLS.
The branding was designed around Dillon’s appeal to all ages, especially children. He’s simply a likable kind of pickle. The heavy use of the color navy represents the rivers of the area and strength, while green reflects the plush growth in Portland, and gray speaks for itself when the sun is not out.
Portland Pickles – The Pickles are all about FUN and will be presenting the best entertainment package in the Portland area. More than half of the tickets are $8 or less and the Pickles offer special discounts to groups and fund raising opportunities for organizations throughout the community.
