Over the years, the San Jose Sharks have made a reputation of being the team with the unique giveaway items. This season, the team wanted to stay true to that reputation, while also trying to incorporate more artistic flavor and panache.
With the success of our annual Los Tiburones artist-designed jerseys, the Sharks wanted to take it a step further and work with local- and world-renowned artists to create even more artistic giveaways. We commissioned a group of artists with diverse styles and backgrounds, giving them creative freedom to reinterpret the Sharks crest in their own style to represent the different perspectives of different fans.
Basically? We got some great artists to design sick Sharks logos.
