UPDATE: We've decided that we want the designs to go in 1 of 2 directions. We would either like to see a very modern update to the current logo or a throwback to a very vintage style logo. Thanks again to everyone who is participating!
*Note: this contest is being run by 99designs for fun and is NOT an official NFL contest! (The prize, however, is real!)
The NFL team, the Miami Dolphins are looking to update their logo in time for the NFL Draft this spring.
For this contest, anything goes, but we will be looking for a design that would complement other current NFL logos (pictured above). We've also included the Dolphins logos and text currently in use.
There are many directions you can go in - some teams have an actual cartoon character (i.e. the Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings), while others incorporate a reference to their home city (i.e. the San Francisco 49ers, New York Giants and Green Bay Packers). Most are 'framed' in one way or another.
While this contest is specifically for a logo, feel free to be creative in showing how it could be used on jerseys, helmets or even on a football field!
We will be providing plenty of written feedback throughout this contest. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions in the public section of the comments!
Best of luck to all the designers! Looking forward to seeing what our vibrant community will come up with!!!
