On the one hand I feel like one team did a great job not only cleaning up their logo, but making it more practical- while the other degraded. All new logos are shown to the left.
Vikings enhance the Norseman
There are really five subtle enhancements to the Norseman. The shape of the horns has been adjusted and the shading in the horns has changed. The base of the horn now resembles the horn on the players’ helmets. Thicker lines have been added to the mustache and face. The Vikings Gold is now brighter and less brassy. The braid has been shortened, resulting in a reduced logo height.
I think the updated Norseman still looks great, but after reading through their justifications respect that they’ve made him easier to utilize. I love that they’re paying attention to the details like the horns on the helmets.
The Jag’s new logo sucks
I’m not gonna talk too much crap about the redesign, but I think It looks even worse than the (now) old logo. At least the old one was clean and more on the abstract side, this makes the team feel like a high school team. I get the concept, but how does a “realistic” Jaguar have a teal tongue? I do think the typography is an improvement though, even though It should probably leverage that team teal more.
“Wow, that looks great!”
Miami Dolphins get a new logo
This supposedly new Miami Dolphins logo was leaked a few months ago,
however there have been other drastically different leaks as well and as of March 26th has been confirmed to be the new team logo. Anything will be an improvement over their current logo though. Since they’re doing a logo redesign, maybe they’ll consider changing their theme song as well. Fins up!
