SuperBowl XLVI 2012 Logo Design


SuperBowl XLVI 2012 Logo Design

Super Bowl XLVI will be the 46th annual edition of the Super Bowl in American football, and the 42st annual championship game of the modern-era National Football League (NFL). The game, to be played on February 5, 2012, will pit the champions of the AFC and the NFC and will be held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. This will be the first time that the Super Bowl will be held in Indianapolis.  

The Super Bowl logos underwent a major change a couple of years and some new rules were introduced to standardize the Super Bowl logos. Starting with the 2011 Super Bowl, the theme of the logo will basically remain the same. The only differences from year to year are the stadium backdrop and the Roman numerals for the game. For this Superbowl, it means the logo displays the Lucas Oil stadium in the background with the Vince Lombardi Trophy sitting on top of the Roman numerals for the game. 

SuperBowl XLVI will be between the AFC Champions - New England Patriots and the NFC Champions - New York Giants. 

I am personally not thrilled with this decision by the NFL. If you look at the Super Bowl logos from the past you can see they each had a unique style that represented various aspects of the region, the country, the game etc. Some logos were really well designed and some were cheesy, but that was the fun of it. Going forward, all the logos are going to the equally standardized (read Boring!!!)

Dallas Cowboys Logo - Design and History

Image The Dallas Cowboys are a professional American football team in the Eastern Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). They are headquarterd in the suburb of Irving, Texas which is between Fort Worth and Dallas. The team is scheduled to play its home games at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington beginning in the 2009 season.  The Cowboys joined the NFL as a 1960 expansion team. The team's national following might best be represented by its NFL record of consecutive games in front of sold-out stadiums.

The Dallas Cowboys' blue star logo is associated with the team is one of the best known logos in sports. The blue star originally was a solid shape until a white line and blue border was added in 1964. The logo has remained the same since. Today, the blue star has been extended to not only the Dallas Cowboys, but owner Jerry Jones' AFL team, the Dallas Desperados that have a similar logo based on the Cowboys.

The star has a special place in Texas history as well. The "lone star" is an older symbol predating the flag which was used to symbolize Texans' solidarity in declaring independence from Mexico. It is still seen today as a symbol of Texas' independent spirit, and gave rise to the state's official nickname "The Lone Star State".

The Jaguars logo featured a  snarling jaguar head with a teal tongue, which Weaver said was his wife's touch.
