SPORTSNATION LOGO & SYMBOL
The inspiration of Sportsnation logo and symbol came from the Holy Scriptures and the way of lives of our Great Grandparents/ ancestors which happens to be in sync with the scriptures.
Genesis 29:15-22 speaks of Isaac who was in a foreign land and was able to prosper more than the locals. This gave him a challenge as they envied him and jealous at the same time.
He ended up being sent away, in his journey he dug a few wells which he went on to meet challenges until the last one where he found peace after digging it.
This is almost the same story with us as a company; our first logo was rejected, second rejected until we came up with this one. This now likens with the wells which Isaac dug and faced rejection.
Moreover,the other inspiration came from the vision and mission of the organization. What it represents and what it stands for.
In the Book of John 4:6-12, we meet Jesus and the Samaritan woman sitting at the very same well that was dug by Isaac still drinking from it after centuries and generations.
WHAT IT MEANS
The ball represents sports, as Sportsnation we are a sports media organisation.
The well at the top right of the ball speaks about collecting of sports news and taking out talent from underground and exposing it for all to see and enjoy.
As the bucket goes down to take water from underground, this is us searching and delivering sports news to the audience, even the most hidden/unseen.
Also in the olden days, we have learnt through Oral traditions that our Great Grandparents used to meet up at the well during their youth. Most families were born from the well, a boy will be herding his father’s cows and a girl sent to fetch water at the well. They will accidentally meet and fall in love, a routine will be formed from this to meet at a certain time of the day during the household chores at the same place, at the well. This will be for the purpose of meeting and sharing the love for each other. It becomes a place of passion and love, until they become a family.
This is also seen in the Book of Genesis 29:10-12 and Genesis 29:15-30 where Jacob met with the love of his life Rachael.
We believe Sportsnation is here to stay, just like the well of Isaac which was dug in the Centuries before Christ and still there after Christ. Serving the people with clean and fresh water, we also serve our people with sports too.
